You already have all the distortion you'll ever need coming out of that amp, a pedal won't sound any better than what's on board....to be honest those are arguably the only kind of sounds it does well.

Bad Monkey is great for driving your amps gain. MT-2 is the cheapest most favorable pedal by metal guitarists.

Nope, that's stupid. Don't get a pedal just because a few people recommended it, especially with the amp you have.
You should be able to get passable distortion out of your amp (a lot better than what's in your price range at the moment anyway). Save up a bit more and go for a nice Randall combo if you want better distortion.

I have been told that distortion pedals tend not to sound good on modeling amps. I never tried dist. through a modeling amp so you may want to get some further advice. One of the cheapest and still good sounding distortion pedals is the Danelectro Daddy-O. Probably about $65. I like mine but I don't know about how metal it sounds.

Honestly, if you want to play stuff like pantera, I'd stick with the spider. I don't like it much, but massive amounts of fizzy SS gain is what the spider can do pretty well. You could probably pull it of with your spider.

Congratulations on your $70 door stop

It's a good pedal, but it's not going to make any appreciable difference on your Spider. If there's one thing the Spider can pull off it's making stupidly distorted, high gain, thin tones...so pretty much Dime's tone nailed there. You'd be far better off saving your money and putting it towards a floor controller for your Spider, or even better, a decent amp.

it'd be more correct to say: mt-2 is the cheapest most favorable pedal by "metal guitarists", aka teenage kids who like playing fast with gross amounts of stupid sounding distortion, but don't know how to construct a good melodical solo that aids -- not detracts from -- a song, and don't know jacksh it about tone.
