What does Arrest do to Silklash Spider
Well, the same thing it does to any other creature - stop it from attacking, blocking or using activated abilities (including its Hurricane-like ability, as well as any other activated abilities it might happen to be getting from things like Brawl).

Activated abilities are those written in Cost: Effect format (look for the colon), in case that's the confusion.

So it wouldn't effect Rhox Faothmender ability which allowed double life gain. My son used this with the gain 7 life and gains 14. With a green deck I struggle to deal with it.

Nope.

Remember: Activated abilities always read "cost : effect".

If it doesn't have a : then it's not an activated ability.

Rhox Faithmender creates a replacement effect (note: if).

What format are you guys playing? (We could post some suggestions for you to deal with Rhox Faithmender)

A group of us play with no format really, we allow anything and everything but try to keep it reasonable. This card is a bit powerful for us but it's still alright.
There's beast within. That's the only green creature killer that I can think of off the top of my head.

Killing creatures isn't really green's thing. Green can kill artifacts and enchantments easily, and there's a few that kill other stuff.

But I guess we're going off topic now (this being strategy advice, not a rules question now) and I suggest you make a thread in the Cards & Combos section of the forum, those guys are better at that over there anyways.

Prey Upon is also a good removal for green

Splashing another colour remains the best way... :P
