Crib Swap Discussion

CleverRuse on Primal Slivers

I feel real dumb for forgetting about Training Grounds... Probably just going to replace Heartstone entirely. My problem with Harmonic Sliver is that it's effect is mandatory, and my deck relies on artifacts/enchantments too much. Having him in play makes going infinite with Queen & Mana Echoes effectively impossible. Crib Swap is nice removal early on, but once the slivers really get going the shapeshifter I give them will likely be a bigger threat than what I can remove.

A tutorable removal is real nice, though... Sideboard it is! Thanks for the input!

Love the deck got a couple of suggestions though Harmonic Sliver just a Aura Shards on a stick. Maybe Training Grounds if you want your abilities to be cheaper and second copy of Heartstone. A Paradox Engine for another copy of Intruder Alarm to help untap your slivers to tap em again to play another sliver when you have a Gemhide Sliver or a Manaweft Sliver on the battlefeild already. Also i know you wanna keep it permanents only but Crib Swap is to good when you have Sliver Overlord as your commander, since you can find it with its ablity to search for a sliver card. Once again awesome deck!

if you wanna go for more T1 plays then you should consider more 1mana creatures.
more Student of Warfare
Caravan Escort
Birds of Paradise
Gravecrawler / Bloodsoaked Champion / Dread Wanderer
War Falcon
to name a few.
that is the aggro-ish midrange way to go.If you are interested in full control yeah Duress effects ARE the way to go for 1.

Just Consider this: you do have a generally strong finisher(Knight of the Reliquary) but it is a "finisher" either focus on completely stop their actions before that or trade creatures with them that you can summon back.
either Duress their Rest in Peace from hand or go so much aggro that they regret even bringing them to the game.
For me Cryptbreaker + Gravecrawler is the way to punish my opponent when they mullied to 5 to play Rest in Peace agaisnt me.
(of course i always play 4x Ratchet Bomb vs Grave Hate but still i punish them).
Finally at least keep 1 Crib Swap in sb for those Goyf's / Death's Shadows.
Hope i helped.

Thanks for the suggestions, G.

Agree that Crib Swap is fantastic, although the choice not to include it was a meta call. If more folks at my LGS ran Dredge, or EldraTron, or anything with tough to kill creatures, then those would definitely be in there. Although lately, Devoted Vizier Company seems to be enjoying its popularity... so all the Finks & the Restoration Gearsmiths have been making me consider some Crib Swaps. We'll see how long that deck stays hot.

I hear you about Raven's Crime & seeing the opponent's hand. CoBru is so versatile, too... thing is, too often I find myself not having a 1CC/1st turn play. And I'd considered swapping out a Raven's or two for an Inquisition or two. But Knight of the Reliquary would complain about not enough lands in the 'yard.

I tried out Funeral Charm for a bit, too. Love those things; never a dead draw. But they were traded out for the CoBru's. Again, better for filling the yard full of lands.

interesting take but where are the Crib Swap's?
If i went white i would definitely add them.
Also the point of playing as tribal are the "lords" and the synergy.(example "Knight Exemplar"),other than that i like the idea.

There's a bunch of cards to fill that slot. Steely Resolve, Mirari's Wake, and Crib Swap could all work in your build. Here is my deck Sweet and Low (Sliver EDH). Would love to hear your feedback on our different choices.

Hey friend! I too have been working on a multiple tribes "cleric" deck I have a couple of suggestions to help make it all mesh. Conspiracy, Shields of Velis Vel , Mirror Entity can all make your creatures have all creature types. You can use Buried Alive to set up a situation where you can cast cards with changeling keyword repeatedly Nameless Inversion , Crib Swap by using Haakon, Stromgald Scourge This can pump out cast effects like Diregraf Colossus and Door of Destinies Add Edgewalker and things can get grody.

I really don't want to seem like the Debbie Downer, more like a voice of reason and moral ambiguity. There are card choices in here I very so would support like Dungrove Elder for obvious valuable reasons, more so I believe retain in a Fatal Push meta.
However, there are just too many card choices I cannot and do not support. Some just because the amount and others, at all. I could not call this a competitively placed deck, unless your LGS is very much more along the line of budget or more-so casual. Do no confuse this with me saying the deck it bad, or choices are bad. I do not do that to people, and I understand many peoples' directions in which they build. That is not being argued here. Again there are just too many missing cards here like Spellskite, Assault Formation, Nyx-Fleece Ram, toolbox potential cards like Selfless Spirit, and Fiend Hunter. The tribal-theme outweighing more visibly playable cards along the same strategy, is choice. If that is exactly what you want then that's you but cards by specific name that I believe are being ignored here are Collected Company, Chord of Calling, Path to Exile (Crib Swap is no where near the strength of Path, but I understand it as a 1-of), and Scavenging Ooze.
I feel like this is a question that always itches at the back of your mind, and maybe many people have questioned also, but, is the Treefolk-tribal theme, actually strong enough?
