Bonesplitter Sliver Discussion

Maybe add more Venom Slivers, Sentinel Slivers, and Predatory Slivers, as in the early game, they can dominate. Deathtouch can be extremely powerful with so many creatures, and having vigilance means you don't have to commit to attacking or defending. Predatory Sliver makes your slivers less susceptible to burn spells, and makes the weakest slivers, such as Manaweft Sliver and Striking Sliver more formidable. I don't like Battle Sliver, you would much rather just remove it and run 4 Megantic Slivers, since for 1 more mana you get an additional +1/+3. An obvious replacement is to take out Fury Sliver and add another Bonescythe Sliver. Last suggestions, increase the number of Constricting Slivers and decrease the number of Bonesplitter Slivers. Nice deck, keep up the good work, and I hope these suggestions help.

OP_Sigma, DiabeticFire, always a joy to have you commenting. Bonesplitter Sliver, is...whelming. While it's not the greatest option in the deck, it can be useful sometimes like when you need to beef up your slivers to make yourself a less appealing target or when I've got Mana Echoes in play, and need a one color sliver to try and combo off on to have enough mana to play something else. Honestly, it's on the chopping block for when new slivers are produced. My hope is that we'll see some in the next core set. Sentinel Sliver was in this deck, but I think it was cut to make room for Swan Song. I think I may experiment and swap Bonesplitter Sliver for Sentinel Sliver.

As for Teferi's Protection, I'm currently experimenting with it. I have a revolving card slot between that, Swan Song (which is the current placeholder), and Damnation. I don't know which to really settle on. I think the next list of slivers produced will ultimately decide what i'll go with.

OP_Sigma, I also am running a poor man's version of LVL_666's deck. As someone in the same camp, I wanted to bounce some ideas off of you.

I also have found Bonesplitter Sliver to be an underperformer, and have very seriously considered replacing it with Sentinel Sliver. I find that when I am not comboing out (my meta is really low power level, so I try not to do that too often), vigilance is a really helpful keyword to have. What say you?

I have yet to run Growing Rites of Itlimoc in any of my decks. What are your thoughts on it?

I find the flexibility of Disallow to be phenomenal. It is not too expensive and I would highly suggest you try it yourself for a few games.

Is Land Tax good in a five color deck? For that matter, I don't run it my selesnya deck with ~20 basic lands. I feel like you can find something stronger.

I love this deck so much! I'm so upset we don't get more toys in the upcoming set.

Hey LVL_666!I'm kinda playing the poor man's version of your deck. Im using the exact same slivers for my tests, there's only Bonesplitter Sliver that I'm not sure aboud. Huge fan of Quick Sliver.

I only own Scrubland and Savannah, plus Im still mising Scalding Tarn and Marsh Flats. Been usingKrosan Verge instead.

I use Growing Rites of Itlimoc instead of Gaea's Cradle.

Memory Lapse instead of Disallow. I really like the 2 mana instead of 3, plus its pretty tempo.

And I'm running Rhystic Study and Land Tax just in case.

Plus, I just bought Vampiric bloodlust deck to have vanilla games. I'll have to playtest Teferi's Protection .

So first off, slivers CAN be good and not broken. The key is which you use. To achieve this end, here are a few slivers that would create a more solid gameplay experience but have an at least okay deck. I can help with the others too, but for now we'll talk about this.

Anything that just buffs the team: Predatory Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Might Sliver, Battle Sliver, Armor Sliver and Barbed Sliver, Blade Sliver, Bonesplitter Sliver, Muscle Sliver, and Sinew Sliver are all pretty cool, but a standout for me, a SUPER fun sliver to play: Firewake Sliver.

Abilities that aren't too broken include Blur Sliver, Belligerent Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Heart Sliver, Leeching Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Quick Sliver, Reflex Sliver, Sentinel Sliver, Striking Sliver, Syphon Sliver, Two-Headed Sliver, Venom Sliver.

Consider making this deck pauper? It would probably limit it enough to be fair.

if you're willing to add some more expensive slivers, i would personally recommend the Bonescythe Sliver, as it doubles the damage output of your sliver, while allowing for them to stay alive. it also pairs well with the Bonesplitter Sliver to add some serious damage

I like the aggressive build of slivers here:

You need to maximize your lords:

+1 [4] Sinew Sliver +1 LORD EFFECT

+1 [4] Bonesplitter Sliver +1 LORD EFFECT

+1 [4] Heart Sliver this is essential to the beat down plan, and this being a rally the peasants deck

+1 [4] Striking Sliver Increase the amount of 1 drops

-1 [2] Sentinel Sliver 2-of works here. 2 CMC

-1 [2] Two-Headed Sliver Menace ability does not stack. 2 CMC

-1 [7] Mountain The deck can run only 20 lands, but this change makes the deck a 22 land deck.

-1 [7] Plains The deck can run only 20 lands, but this change makes the deck a 22 land deck.

I hope these adjustments help you win more games.

Interesting take on slivers, maybe Saskia is the new Brood Mother? lol. So I think that there are a number of slivers that just shouldn't see play because they are both uninspired, and have very lackluster abilities for the CMC. My suggestion is to just drop them outright, in favor of different spells or creatures:
