Ancient Ziggurat Discussion
1 day ago
Hey, well done. Thanks for the description, I have been really curious as to why some lists have been including Restoration Angel, & I guess it was what I've expected. Could you explain your decision to run Damping Sphere & Stony Silence even though only 15/19 lands can help cast it (the 4 that can't being Ancient Ziggurat), and why have you opted to drop Gutshot (which seems to be a popular 2 of in most sideboards) from your list? Also, what matches do you bring in Dire Fleet Daredevil? I'm looking to get into this deck, but I haven't been able to find any good material on how to sideboard with the deck.

Your lands also need some tlc. First, get Command Tower and Ancient Ziggurat in here. Also consider Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Exotic Orchard, and Reflecting Pool. Vizier of the Menagerie is also great here for mana fixing.

So did you get your bloom tender? Still not in the list is why I ask... That and I didn't realize I'd posted on your list before so I was about to suggest it again lol.
Got a few more suggestions though. Look into cutting a few of your counterspells in favor of creatures that provide similar utility like Draining Whelk and Glen Elendra Archmage. The other area that needs work is your lands... Obviously fetchlands are great, so I'm only mentioning budget-ish options. City of Brass, Ancient Ziggurat, Exotic Orchard, and Reflecting Pool should help quite a bit.

I'm gonna add a bit more here.
The cut lands could be basics, a swamp and a mountain.

Here's some land recommendations, because playing 5 colors is hard without the right lands:
Ancient Ziggurat, Command Tower, Crystal Quarry, Frontier Bivouac (run all 10 of the tri-colored tap lands, they're cheap and good), Mystic Monastery, Nomad Outpost, Opulent Palace, Rupture Spire, Sandsteppe Citadel, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel, Shimmering Grotto, Sliver Hive, Transguild Promenade.
You should drop all your basic lands down to 1 of each type. Running 5x Vivid lands and 10x Tri-color lands, and 1 of each basic land takes up 20 land slots. The rest should be land that some how taps for all colors.
I run a pretty low budget Slivers list, with Hivelord as the commander as well. Here's some cards that could up the power level of your deck without crazy monetary investment:
Primal Rage and Shared Triumph offer buffs to all of your Slivers. Spirit of Resistance makes you invincible if you have Sliver Hivelord in play. Unearth is a solid way to return some of your best Slivers to play after removal. Harsh Sustenance is solid removal with the added benefit of life gain. Obelisk of Urd is a good way to pump up your Slivers. Domri Rade is a planeswalker that works really well with Slivers. Gives you consistent removal as well as draw. The ultimate makes it real difficult to lose games.

cdkime is just blatantly wrong when saying Gemhide Sliver or Manaweft sliver are "not fast enough for modern". they are part of what makes the deck fast in the first place. there have been many games where i've Aether Vial'd a Manaweft Sliver into play turn 3 and been able to cast Collected Company. they also combine really well with Sedge Sliver. with both in play, you can use a sliver to block, then tap it for black to regenerate itself. he's also wrong about cards with a cmc over 2 (he contradicts himself anyway by then saying use Necrotic Sliver). you don't want anything with a cmc 4 or more, so you can use Collected Company, but a cost of 3 is fine. Sedge Sliver and Syphon Sliver are great, and Harmonic Sliver should definitely be in your sideboard. Blur Sliver makes the deck crazy fast, especially when combined with the mana slivers that cdkime doesn't like for some reason. Phantasmal Image can copy your P/T boosting slivers, or your Diffusion Sliver/Harmonic Sliver.
if you run Collected Company you want 24 lands, and you'll need some fetches/shocks to ensure you have a swamp for Sedge Sliver. if choosing between rainbow lands like Cavern of Souls/Unclaimed Territory/Sliver Hive/Ancient Ziggurat, only choose 1 of them. they can't produce green for Collected Company, or black to regenerate with via Sedge Sliver, they dont count as a swamp to get Sedge Sliver's +1/+1 active, and they can't produce blue for Phantasmal Image. thats 4 crucial things the deck needs. with proper fetches and shocks, you won't need the extra rainbow lands for color fixing and Syphon Sliver can heal off the damage
heres my own list that i've been taking to modern for a while now, that people at my LGS hate playing against. i've played hundreds of games with it and could probably count the number of times i havent had the colors i've needed on one hand.
