Amoeboid Changeling Discussion
1 week ago
What I did with all the changeling creatures is build a 5 color lord deck. 20 some lords and 20 changelings with Sliver Overlord as the general so he can tutor out any changeling I want. Also gain control of any creature with Amoeboid Changeling.

Falco101 I need to say that Shapeshifters do not inherently have all creature types. Creatures with the ability Changeling, which so far only appears on Shapeshifters from the Lorwyn and Morningtide sets, have all creature types--compare Amoeboid Changeling with Cryptoplasm. If a Shapeshifter enters as a copy of another creature, or becomes a copy of another creature, it will typically have the types of the copied creature. A Cryptoplasm doesn't start off will all creature types.

If you want to go with a more tribal synergy, here are some great cards and shapeshifters (creatures of type shapeshifter are all creature types).

Since you run Sliver Overlord as your commander, have you thought about running Unnatural Selection and/or Amoeboid Changeling? It lets you steal their creatures which can be kind of fun. I run a sliver deck but it's Queen based. Still welcome to take a look and see if anything strikes inspiration :)

Hmm...so this is a pet peeve of mine so take it worth a grain of salt but -always make your deck description as detailed as possible. As I'm looking at your deck and what you wrote here my only guess is that your game plan is to swing wide, and swing often. However, your deck doesn't seem to exactly have alot of focus to that end. You include some slivers with parasitic mechanics and/or (in my opinion) don't function well when there is only a "one of":
These Slivers are bad inclusions in an EDH deck because their abilities don't have much direct interaction with the other creatures in your deck. Additionally, when there is only one copy of them out on the battlefield their presence doesn't really make much of an impact - case in point Frenzy Sliver. With only one in play, your Slivers will only deal +1/+0 if they get through. That's it. If you had 4, that changes dramatically to +4/+0 - forcing the opponent to always block if possible. Can you honestly say that there is a situation where you would want to tutor for one of the previously mentioned creatures? Again, this is all my own opinion - but I would cut these Slivers for additional spells or permanents that could support you, but more on that later.
The inclusion of non-slivers is a bad choice given your commander. Overlord is designed to enable you to tutor for whatever answer you need. If that answer isn't a Sliver and is a creature - then what's the point of having Overlord as your commander? Speaking of lack of inclusions - why not have Amoeboid Changeling? It's a Sliver, and it interacts directly with Overlord's 2nd ability enabling you to steal enemy commanders. That's more of a control oriented play, but is a Overlord staple.
I'm starting to think that maybe you should swap out commanders for ether Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Legion. Your deck, as it is currently built seems to support a more aggro playstyle - which is completely viable within Slivers. Including the previously mentioned, I would cut the following cards:
- Reflex Sliver - This is an exceptionally horrible card. Never use this. Ever.
- Spitting Sliver - This is also an awful card.
- Hunter Sliver - This card is only relevant if you have both Striking/Bonescythe Sliver + Venom Sliver OR Sliver Legion on the board.
- Belligerent Sliver - Menace is okay, but the more CMC efficient version is Two-Headed Sliver. Again in my opinion, this is only relevant with Striking/Bonescythe Sliver + Venom Sliver OR Sliver Legion on the board.
Now, what cards do I think you could use?:
- Aphetto Dredging - Another possible (and budget!) option for recursion.
- Shared Animosity - Feels like more of a "win more" card, but it's a one sided aggro Coat of Arms. Worth trying in my book
- Door of Destinies - In tribal, an absolute beast of a card. Definitely worth trying out.
- Herald's Horn - a cheaper Urza's Incubator that lets you Scry. A great include, but if you also have a Urza's Incubator, then why not both?
- Synapse Sliver - if you're going to be attacking alot, why not try and get some cards out of it?
- Blur Sliver - infinitely better than Reflex Sliver. Why would you not choose this over that?
- Magma Sliver - A Sliver that compliments a more aggressive play style. Great for getting past pesky Propagandas and Ghostly Prisons.
- Armageddon - this is only of use to you when you have a "Soft Lock" on the board in the form of Gemhide Sliver and say - Sliver Hivelord + Crystalline Sliver. Losing lands would be a minor setback for you - a major one for your opponents.
- Diabolic Tutor - it's a budget Demonic Tutor. What else can I say?
- Enlightened Tutor - a bit on the pricey side, but having more tutor options is never wrong.
- Triumph of the Hordes - an alternate wincon for a deck that likes to swing wide. Worth including if you can afford it.
- Horned Sliver - Trample. For a deck that wants to swing wide, sometimes you just need trample.
Sorry to write you a whole book lol, but those were my thoughts. Please let me know what you think and when your tournament is. I look forward to your response! Also, here's a +1 for you!

removal spells - Harsh Mercy is a clear winner here. Along those lines, Kindred Dominance would also be good. Artificial Evolution works really well, like the Amoeboid Changeling you already have listed. Obviously Mutavault,Cavern of Souls and Collected Company are big winners, but pricier. I'm sure you've seen it, but Dormant Sliver is good at keeping the party going, even in the face of removal, Sidewinder Sliver helps overcome tiny deathtouch-ers, and Chameleon Colossus seems weird, but is a beefy beefy boy in decks like this.
I want to put together a sliver EDH, but you really gotta have the queen, and I just can't drop that much on one card. >.< Maybe I'm cheap, but really everything is just about priorities.
Anyway, I'm new to tappedout, so let me know what you think!

How is Amoeboid Changeling working for you? I'm also curious about the more expensive ninjas like Throat Slitter, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Silent-Blade Oni, and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni. I think you may be headed down a more ninja tribal focused route, but I'd love to know how they've performed or if you've found them slow.

Recently revamped my Atogatog deck that's all about stealing creatures (and other permanents) and turning them into Atogs for Atogatog to eat. The deck now features more ways to change creature types like Amoeboid Changeling, Imagecrafter, and Unnatural Selection, and more ways to steal affected creatures like Willbreaker and Sliver Overlord. Faces of the Past and Thornbite Staff can untap Rubinia Soulsinger to steal and sacrifice every creature, or untap mana creatures for mana to activate Sliver Overlord or Captivating Crew, or cast every spell in our hand. March of the Machines + Pitiless Plunderer creates an infinite death loop for infinite untaps, and kills opponents with Zulaport Cutthroat.
