Constricting Sliver Discussion

Constricting Sliver is also pretty disgusting, although risky if you run into a lot of sweepers.

It's also worth noting that if they have out Constricting Sliver and then play Gemhide Sliver they can exile Animar, Soul of Elements because even though the ability is granted by the white Constricting Sliver, the source will be the green Gemhide Sliver.

When playing Animar, Soul of Elements and my opponent has Ghostflame Sliver out and then plays Constricting Sliver can they still exile Animar, Soul of Elements since Ghostflame Sliver states that all slivers are now colorless

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.

Recently added Intruder Alarm to my sliver deck. Makes infinite mana possible - endgame with the right cards in play.
Thorncaster Sliver is sick with the deathtouch sliver in play
Constricting Sliver also super powerful with its ETB effect.

i would recommend adding a Constricting Sliver so when you play it out you can have all your slivers have the Banishing Preist effect you will controll the game with him out. other than that replace Winged Sliver for Galerider Sliver for a one blue other than that it looks good.

Novisius while Necrotic Sliver is good, it is its own downfall, since it gives all slivers that ability one of the slivers in my deck can do the same and kill off necrotic when you destroy mine at the same time. Constricting Sliver relies on the deck not using its draw power to get Swiftfoot Boots so again is a good move but has its counter. as for Quilled Sliver it wont affect my slivers and I can just give Darksteel Plate to any of the other creatures to keep them alive. There are other ways to deal with them in the deck but that was the first thing that came to mind. Also with the Crystalline Sliver, that was in the deck but I took it out as per some comments above, it is a bit of a double edged sword as your slivers gain shroud too. So with that in mind, it will come down to who can draw what they need first, either way it would be an interesting game.
