Basal Sliver Discussion

viperfang4: Wouldn't you also need to run Basal Sliver to make the combo work? Otherwise you get infinite creature mana yes, but you can't use it to activate abilities. So once you have infinite creature mana, your first tutor will have to be Basal Sliver (which you need for) and then you can chain into those combos. Outside of this, only Dormant Sliver + Laboratory Maniac works.

Hey sonnet666!

Like suggested by StoicAngel, Mutavault could have some use from Basal Sliver, and I think it could replace something like Blinkmoth Nexus?

What about Mutavault over Gemstone Caverns? As it makes Basal Sliver a bit more efficient.

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.
