Red is the best for forcing decisions. You've got Whims of the Fates , Stronghold Gambit , Breaking Point , Browbeat , Flaming Gambit , Vexing Devil and Blazing Salvo , among others. But black isn't so bad itself, including Dash Hopes , Lethal Vapors , Temporal Extortion , Volrath's Dungeon and the aptly-named Choice of Damnations . Eye of Doom might also be an option for forcing people to choose which permanent to put on the chopping block.

HurricaneZach I tried Lightning Bolt, but the reason to use Blazing Salvo is to do my opponent have a painful choice, he loose a creature or take 5 damage, because the 12 lords in this deck doing their job very well. Thanks.

I think Lightning Bolt over Blazing Salvo is the only change I would make. +1 though. Good looking sliver list!

  21. Pestilence - 1
  22. Ponder - 1
  23. Slippery Bogle - 1

lukas96 brings up an interesting point, too. Because pauper is kind of made up from combo-pieces, stepping-stones and straight-up-chaff from other formats, should it also be a "requirement" that the Pauper IX be useful in other formats, i.e. as a bridge to allow players to "graduate" to more expensive formats?

I personally do not feel that this needs to be a requirement. I feel it will be an inevitable "happy coincidence" in the end, regardless of our restrictions. I just wanted to bring the thought up though. =)

Blazing Salvo is another good choice, if you haven't seen or heard of it. I personally prefer to run that as opposed to bolts, but that's my personal preference.
