Crib Swap Discussion
1 week ago
Hey man, thanks a lot for the suggestions. As for Midnight Reaper and Kinsbaile Cavalier I feel like with 10 cards above CMC 2 that are all important to the deck (Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Knight Exemplar, and Crib Swap), it wouldn't have room for more. It's kind of the same issue with Altar's Reap, there wasn't a ton of good CMC 1 cards for this list so it's got a lot of CMC 2 cards, and the value of those has to be really high to balance things out.

@Verbatiam This is more helpful than you could know, and I am very appreciative of your feedback and suggestions. I do plan on keeping the artifact element of my slivers, I plan on adding other tribal enchantments/artifacts such as Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Heartstone, Helm of the Host, and Herald's Horn. Saheeli Rai is going to stay and the other is probably going to be replaced with Xenagos, the Reveler.

The deck did not bring much attention at first, but after playing it for 2 years everyone agrees it's one of the most effective in my playgroup. Crib Swap especially is an all-star and tutoring for it usually gets a few comments on how their board is about to be decimated.
I've switched from seeing this deck as a midrange deck to a ramp/control one, so the criticism about speed is somewhat justified. But as any ramp deck it performs very well once a mana threshold is reached and it will be viable if your playgroup is not about comboing out on turn 3.

Slivers is my pet archtype so appologies if I go a little overboard with this comment
also one card thats really win more with slivers is Kindred Summons
On the topic of Artifacts they can be really useful in a budget 5 colour deck as they work with whatever colours you happend to have out. Most of your artifacts are good, I'd just cut Hedron Archive and Tamiyo's Journal, the former because you really need coloured mana and the latter because its a really slow tutor and not very good source of cards. I'd recommend adding Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, and Heartstone (Heartstone is especially good). If you find more space in the deck I'd also recommend signets for your major colours as they can convert 1 colour that you dont need to 2 that you do.
All in all I really love the deck and it fills me with nostalga for my old Sliver deck (it was my first ever commander deck). Hope some of this helps and I'd be happy to talk about what I've said more (hope this isn't way to much)

Dormant Sliver is incredibly powerful. It can draw a significant number of cards, and then be killed by Necrotic Sliver or another removal spell when you're ready to attack. Combined with Paradox Engine, you can cast a large number of slivers, drawing even more slivers to cast, leading to some powerful turns.
Crib Swap is a removal spell you can tutor with your commander.

I really like your deck and admire your desire to make inexpensive edh decks. That being said I do believe there are some ways you could improve this deck without breaking the budget.
While you do have plenty of board wipe effects I notice that you only have a few single target removal spells. Board wipes are great but the problem is the fact that they are sorcery speed. The ability to react on your opponents turn is invaluable so I would highly recommend adding one or two more instant speed removal spells. Some notable ones would be
I also think there are some counterspell's you would be better off for running that are pretty cheap.
- Sinister Sabotage is basically a Cancel with upside and still pretty cheap.
- Rewind is almost free in the late game.
- Foil is a budget Force of Will that would fit great in your deck given your high island count.
- Arcane Denial is just a solid counter spell in EDH since it replaces itself and the advantage it gives your opponent is mitigated by the multiplayer format.
- I would also recommend running Forbid since you seem to draw so many cards but this one is a little more pricey.
The only other general improvement I would recommend would be try to add some dual lands. Even if they come into play tapped, dual lands do wonders to help a deck perform at its best. Some really budget ones I'd recommend are.
- Irrigated Farmland
- Azorius Chancery
- Boreal Shelf
- Coastal Tower
- Meandering River
- Prahv, Spires of Order
- Sejiri Refuge
- Tranquil Cove
I really do like your deck and what you have made so far, but I would like you to at least consider these options to further improve your deck.

The reminder text for changeling explains that "This card is every creature type at all times." This includes in zones other than the battlefield, such as on the stack. So when you cast Avian Changeling, you're not only casting a Shapeshifter spell, you're casting a Human spell, a Wizard spell, a Goat spell, a Construct spell, a God spell, and any other creature type that currently exists.
Cathars' Crusade, by the way, doesn't care about creature types, just creature permanents. So even though Crib Swap also has changeling and thus all the creature subtypes, it isn't a creature permanent, and thus wouldn't trigger Cathars' Crusade. It would, however, work with Door of Destinies because the Door only cares that you're casting a spell (of any sort) with the chosen creature subtype, even if the spell in question is not, itself, a creature spell.
