Basal Sliver Discussion

zephramtripp on those crazy slivers...

There are several Sliver I think your amiss in dismissing:

Bonescythe Sliver, for cheap double strike.
Brood Sliver, for massive Sliver production.
Harmonic Sliver, for artifact/enchantment removal.
Heart Sliver, for cheap haste.
Magma Sliver, for massive gains.
Manaweft Sliver, as a backup Gemhide Sliver.
Necrotic Sliver, to turn every Sliver into a Vindicate.
Shifting Sliver, to make your team unblockable.
Sinew Sliver, as another Muscle Sliver.
Virulent Sliver, to only have to deal ten, not 40.
Winged Sliver, for more flying.

Other Slivers you might consider: Basal Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, Essence Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Horned Sliver, Spined Sliver, Spitting Sliver, Lymph Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Opaline Sliver, Psionic Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Screeching Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord, Synapse Sliver, Synchronous Sliver, and Syphon Sliver.

Tribal stuff:
Cavern of Souls, obviously.
Descendants' Path, if you want to go heavy tribal.
Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
Belbe's Portal
Urza's Incubator
Patriarch's Bidding

Sliver Queen + Mana Echoes = INFINITE TOKENS

Sliver Queen + Heartstone/Training Grounds + Basal Sliver = INFINTE TOKENS AND BLACK MANA

Sliver Queen + Heartstone/Training Grounds + Basal Sliver + Acidic Sliver = INFINITE TOKENS/MANA/DAMAGE

Also don't forget Ashnod's Altar! It's basically a Basal Sliver for colourless, and the queens ability only uses generic mana.

If you want your deck to be fast, then you're running way too many slivers. Ghostflame Sliver? How often do you come up against All Is Dust?

The key to making a deck faster is to increase your ramp and card advantage. Between these two you will be able to achieve your win condition more quickly.

Speaking of which, why no Impact Tremors / Purphoros, God of the Forge? With Queen and Basal Sliver that's game.

Also, you're doing the right thing using Sliver Queen over Sliver Overlord.

Holy Creatures Batman! Where do I start?!'re wanting to make a more optimized hive, hm? Well, in order to make a truly fast Sliver deck you'll need to figure out what colors you'll be focusing on primarily, and what general you'll go with. If you want to be fast, then i'd recommend you swap out Sliver Overlord for Sliver Queen due to her obscene combos. Then you'd run the following cards:

Then toss in a bunch of manafixers (Cryptolith Rite), tutors, and maybe a few other slivers to compliment things with a strong manabase and you'd be set. Also, you're only allowed to have 1 of's in EDH. So 2x Sedge Sliver, 2x Sentinel Sliver, 2x Shifting Sliver etc. need to be corrected.

Forkbeard on Sliver Overlord: Slivers Gone Wild

Having spent the last few years with a beat down style sliver deck, not only was it not as effective as I wanted it to be, it was also getting a little stale...time to spice things up a little! Another important factor, Overlord is fantastic but also very slow - as it turns out, an 8 mana/5 colour tutor isn't exactly efficient. With these thoughts in mind, I've decided to give the deck a significant overhaul with 2 goals in mind: improve reliability + increase shenanigans.

I've taken out most of the pump slivers in favour of a few effective combo slivers. I've also learned that I need some disruption to avoid the hive mind's mortal enemy - board wipes. Anyway, here's the change list:

Out: Aphetto Dredging, Constricting Sliver, Cryptolith Rite, Distant Melody, Horned Sliver, Magma Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Might Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Root Sliver, Shared Animosity, Synapse Sliver, Telekinetic Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver, Toxin Sliver, Ward Sliver

In: Basal Sliver, Blur Sliver, Commander's Sphere, Counterspell, Crypt Sliver, Darksteel Ingot, Disallow, Dormant Sliver, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Paradox Engine, Quick Sliver, Swan Song, Voidslime, Wheel of Sun and Moon, Winged Sliver

I'm looking forward to seeing how this refreshed build performs.

Sliver_God on Slivers hold the Key to Nothingness

It looks super-fun! I might try to fit in Gemhide Sliver as another way to tap Slivers for Mana and to have more Turn-2 Ramp options. Also, maybe try some way to sacrifice Dormant Sliver for those times when you are forced to go on the attack, perhaps Basal Sliver to get you the for Door to Nothingness or even Necrotic Sliver if you want to be slightly more competitive, there are always targets for it! Maybe even Mindlash Sliver for another 1-drop that can help take them off their own discard, artifact removal, or the more uncommon counterspells you sometimes run across in Modern! Really looks like a fun idea, I look forward to seeing what kind of results you get with it, kind-of want to sleeve it up myself for the next Modern night at my LGS!
