    Fun deck that synergizes well with the loyalty abilities:

    Creatures (2):
    Drider (U)
    Foulmire Knight (C)

    Spells (4):
    Ruinous Ultimatum (M)
    Desecrated Earth (R)
    Hagra Mauling (R)
    Soul Shatter (R)

    Supports (4):
    Black Market (M)
    Shadow Spear (R)
    Labyrinth of Skophos (R)
    Warlock Class (U)

    General idea is to control the battlefield as much as possible, especially considering the choice of spells.
    Drider is summoned by the 2nd loyalty ability, but requires an opposing creature to work.  So having a way to hard cast the Drider is a good backup plan.  Not to mention Foulmire Knight works really well with Lolth - 6 mana for a berserker with deathtouch... an utter classic; also works amazingly well with the loyalty abilities and the rest of the deck!
    Spells are focused on control, as mentioned earlier.  Ruinous Ultimatum is a tried and true board wipe.  Things getting out of hand?  Just destroy everything (except lands)!  Desecrated Earth provides a way to get rid of obnoxious land supports, especially a few that tend to show up a lot with green PWs, plus discard and some burn damage.  Hagra Mauling and Soul Shatter provide cheaper creature removal; Mauling can also provide some extra mana ramp with landforming and Shatter can get around hexproof.
    Supports are a mixed bag of utility.  Warlock Class turns Lolth's passive into a neat way to share the pain with Greg.  Shadow Spear makes sure Greg can't utilize either prevent damage or hexproof, while providing some sustain for Lolth's passive.  Labyrinth of Skophos can stop one creature from attacking (assuming no natural haste), helps stop tokens from getting out of hand, and provides some extra loyalty gems for Lolth's abilities.  Black Market is a must for control style decks - just try to get it to reinforce the turn you play it...
