Ancient Ziggurat Discussion

Thanks Gracco. I'll consider it, as it is really handy all around, but it's not a creature and Ancient Ziggurat being the only third land I hit in a game is really common. I'm really trying to avoid 3 mana noncreatures in the deck for consistency. Demand is an exception, cause I'd need 4 lands to pull it off anyway.

You could drop the Mana Confluence for Ancient Ziggurat as it also produces any color and does not cost you life.

If you are playing white you can run Path to Exile, and G/B Abrupt Decay as those are some top tier removal spells in modern.

you are almost tribal humans, if you wanted to go that route you could cut the 2 non human creatures in your deck for Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, but i understand if you do not want to change the theme.

the next step i would suggest is to build a sideboard for your local meta and play a bunch of games.

Thanks for your input LVL_666

It's a great pleasure to have you comment here since you were such a big inspiration for my own deck.

You're right about Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, I just bought Ancient Ziggurat and Cavern of Souls today, I'll make some space for them. Not sure if I'll keep Ancient Ziggurat though since it can only be used for creatures.

Draw might me an issue with my build, I'll consider adding something.

Since Dormant Sliver give my army defender and Synapse Sliver has a heavy CMC. Maybe I could add something in between.

I think Vanquisher's Banner could be good a good choice.

No defender effect on my army, I draw as I cast, my slivers get +1/+1 and I can use any color to cast it. The CMC is still high to my taste. What is your opinion about it? One major drawback is that I cannot cast it in instant speed with Quick Sliver.

I'll have to test it!

Hello Delta-117, just ordered Ancient Ziggurat.

For the counterspells I've been thinking about those that don't use double mana of the same source. I might even change Counterspell since it could cause mana issue.

I own Trickbind and Flusterstorm. Those could be usefull, I'll think about it.

I can't wait to talk about slivers with you guys. There's so much flavour to that tribal.

Hey glad to see another Sliver deck. As it’s quite late I will keep this short, but I will try to give more suggestions at a later time.

For starters I would add Ancient Ziggurat in here, and also swap Mana Leak for another counterspell such as Disallow. I think that you may have just a few too many instants but I will give this a better look when I can.

But this definitely looks like a good start.

Since it's the creatures that require all the different colours of mana, Ancient Ziggurat could be useful (doesn't have any basic land types, though).

Yavimaya Hollow is good so is Ancient Ziggurat I'd cut the temple lands due to them being slow and scry 1 isn't that important in animar replace with shock lands. Some fetch lands and basics to even out the mana pool. Something to destroy lands is important in commander so Strip Mine and a Wasteland might be good
