The easiest way to overcome Anub'Rekhan with this deck is to concede if your draw isn't perfect. Don't waste your time (half of the cards in this deck may not synergize well with this strategy). You will want a Mark of the Wild or Mark of Nature and two Innervates. At the draw, take a look at your cards. The two innervates will help you bring out a 4/4 or better creature on the first turn, before Anub'Rekhan does anything. On the second turn, use the Mark of the Wild or Mark of Nature to pump your creature up to block his attacks. Now you can ignore his creatures and focus on killing Anub'Rekhan quickly. By the fourth turn Anub'Rekhan will have two skitters out and will attack you with one. Keep focusing on him. Use the new cards that you have drawn to take out the Skitters or back up the powerful monster you have out. By the end of the match he will probably have a full army out. Continue to ignore them a focus on pummeling him with everything.

Naturalize (this is the only card you need to invest in for this deck) and Swipe is necessary to make quick work of an early Deathlord or too many skitters.
