Blooming Marsh Discussion
4 days ago
When I first got serious about modern I took a stab at GB with Vraska the Unseen and Phyrexian Obliterator. With the printing of MM3 Hissing Quagmire and Blooming Marsh I think the archetype can finally be a serious contender in modern. I will have to try Tectonic Edge. I've seen it in budget 8-rack decks and the like as a tron killer. Never tried it out myself. I do like that it doesn't give them a basic.

If you're going to put in HoK, and you probably should eventually, I think Sylvan Advocate is the better cut by far.
I think going up on Honored Hydra is also best for consistency. You don't want a lot of 6-mana 6/6s of course; but paradoxically you won't draw them early with any consistency if you don't run 3 or more.
Unlicensed Disintegration is much better than To the Slaughter, ESPECIALLY if you get in HoK. 3 damage is usually a planeswalker kill spell anyway. I also think Grasp of Darkness is a necessity since nothing got banned and you need to deal with the cat and HoK at instant speed; sadly Cut / Ribbons won't Cut it for now.
I really like the direction the deck is going in, though, and I love decks that utilize Arlinn! You've definitely given me some ideas. I'm testing out a -1/-1 counter Jund build that's pretty fun too :) Counter Jund 'em
In that shell, I've really liked running a combination of show lands and cycle lands, with the playset of Blooming Marshes. This deck has a higher curve, so I don't know if it's the right setup for this deck, but the cycle lands help make the show lands untapped duals much later in the game.

Instead of Olivia's Dragoon you could use Noose Constrictor, this should allow more reach against flying creatures (you won't need to activate this through discarding a card, whereas Olivia's Dragoon does). I like this deck, also, You won't be able to cast any green spell without any green mana, Blooming Marsh is pretty cool, as is Fortified Village.

I think you.have too many utility lands or lands that come into play tapped and only provide one color. Generally speaking I maybe use 1-2 such lands at most. There are a few 5 and 2 color lands you have not yet included: Exotic Orchard, Blooming Marsh, Reflecting Pool. Barring that some rocks or dorks that tap for all colors may help

Yeah, that's better.
Now, a good rule to go by is have 40% of your deck be lands. Currently, you have half of your deck (30 cards) in those slots. This can be a problem because you will be drawing Land when you really needed something else.
Since you aren't doing Commander (EDH), you have 60 cards which means 24 of them should be lands. This number can go up a little or down a little depending on what deck you're going with. For example, Aggro Decks typically have cheaper costing cards and can make do with around 20 - 22 lands. Control Decks that aim to stifle their opponent or Ramp Decks that want to get big creatures out fast will usually bump that number up to 25 - 28. For you, however, we should probably stick with 24.
Also, it's very important to note that while Basic Land cards like Swamps have no limit to the number you can have in your deck, special lands that are not basic like Blooming Marsh also follow the 4-card limit that other cards do. You couldn't have run 10 anyway.
Now, I have a few more questions before I can help with the rest of the deck. Are you playing this deck on Magic the Gathering Online? Or is this a real, paper deck?
Are these the cards you have access to right now? And how easy is it for you to gain access to other cards?
This way I know how and what cards to suggest.

I do hope The Professor's prediction comes true, I never was playing magic at the time of Dominara even though I do know a lot of the lore now.
I never got to play with slivers early on. I only discovered slivers about 3 years ago (Started magic at around Journey into Nyx and mainly played with a lot of theros stuff first) when I had a friend who happened to have some m14 slivers and I one day I traded for some such as a Galerider Sliver and 2 much older Russian Sidewinder Slivers who he originally got from someone else I think. I didn't even know at the time that there was more older ones but I found these interesting and wanted the ones he had.
Later on when where I lived actually got a game store that opened and had started to doing Fnms had I found out from two people the format of commander who both owned Sliver Overlord edh decks that there were more slivers. At this point I was practically already playing with a commander deck lol, as my casual magic deck was a deck featuring cards like Prophet of Kruphix, Heroes' Bane, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Horizon Chimera, and a bunch of other things. This became later my first commander deck with Vorel of the Hull Clade (Now it's an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck with Vorel still in it btw) and I started to also plan a Sliver Overlord deck.
One of the two I mentioned at my lgs even in time decided to sell his sliver overlord deck because he never got to play it enough, so I traded for some older slivers like Sinew Sliver, Brood Sliver, Fungus Sliver, and a couple others he had. He however wanted to keep Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hivelord.
I have my own Sliver Overlord, and Sliver Hivelord now but I still need to in time buy the others. Then I got to acquire some of the lands to finish my deck. I regret earlier trades that I have done however, use to have a Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath,Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Steam Vents and Temple Garden but I traded them all away thinking I wouldn't need them, and I sure was very wrong. It was rather silly of me still being new to the game sort of then.
Like I even opened at one point a Windswept Heath expedition not knowing it's entire value but I sleeved it still because they looked nice. I later discovered and sold it for store credit at a store and bought a bunch of cards with it like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, I think you get the point. All these big splashy cards to go into my casual magic decks to use on my friends. Then I later when I started playing magic a bit more seriously it rather sucked to realize I had no use for them in standard or modern or wanted to use them for edh any longer. That store even had Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen but I didn't yet know about slivers :(
Going to now anyways buy them next once I first open a bunch of Amonkhet for standard stuff perhaps. Although it would be nice to see a reprint for the Sliver Legion. The next set after Amonkhet however though has turned out to be one called Ixalan I think it was spelled? This looks to be a mesoamerican inspired plane so there's no hope for slivers in September/January. More likely will get a few merfolk instead is my guess. However maybe the block after in the summer could be dominara? I would live to see slivers as first of all I would enjoy playing them in standard as I never got to do that earlier. Then anything for edh would be awesome. Currently have my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Sliver Overlord although the lands are fairly budget, and Athreos, God of Passage for my edh decks. I am trying to upgrade them all slowly over time as I'm as well upgrading my very costly modern infect deck (Need Noble Hierarch playset and 5 more green related fetchlands) and a little before that my b/g delirium deck for standard (rather absurd its more than my Atraxa deck in $ right now thanks to a playset of Grim Flayer, Liliana, the Last Hopes, Blooming Marsh, and what not making it like over $470 I believe, use to be a bit more value but it's falling). As you can see I'm trying to slowly upgrade rather a lot of things even though my standard I'm happy with for now, but I do hope to finish Slivers maybe by the fall is my guess?
Now if you thought you were ranting then that is nothing compared to all of this! This is much worse so I do apologize. (Longest TappedOut comment I have made I think in the little more than a year on here now lol).
