Saljen on Sliver Combo

Is this designed for 1v1 EDH or multiplayer EDH?

Looks like you're missing some of the staple draw / ramp cards for 5c Slivers.

Descendants' Path , Mirari's Wake , Smothering Tide , Herald's Horn (ramp and draw), Domri, Chaos Bringer , Cryptolith Rite all provide ramp in one form or another.

Guardian Project , Phyrexian Reclamation , Sylvan Library , Vanquisher's Banner , Distant Melody , Domri Rade , Kindred Discovery all provide draw in one form or another.

The Domri's are particularly compatible with Slivers, as each +/- ability is incredibly relevant to the creature heavy deck.

Spirit of Resistance and Pariah both combo with Sliver Hivelord to prevent you from taking any damage.

You DEFINITELY need to be running Cyclonic Rift . If you're playing Blue in EDH, that card needs to be in your deck. It's too good to ignore.

This is just some advice coming from a fellow Slivers player. My deck is about 75%, but it's mostly lands (shocks, fetches, duals) that I'm missing. Here's the list if you're interested.

BMHKain on I finally found something bad ...

5 days ago

After all 5 Bonds in WAR have been spoiled, I've let myself imagining how the Future of Ravnica as a Plane should work. Now we have true Alarian Symbols (Why didn't we have a sequel to the Shards of Alara Block... Or Watermarks for each Shard?), there is one thing I'm finally upset at WotC for this:

All Bonds are that of Allied 3-Colors.

This could've been fixed very easily w/o a problem. In 2 other ways also! We could have the Wedge-Style Colors straight out of Pre-Dragons of Tarkir sets of the Tarkir Block. Hell, we could've even had an Homage to the Nephilim (I don't fragging care about those cards; they are just as Rip-Easy like Nicol Bolas during the Legends Set; oh, & you all need to give Brawl more of a chance than ever; Oathbreaker's only flaw is actually the biggest that they had; Choose a Walker, BUT, you are also forced to use their key card representing them; which not all Walkers have. Just Play Brawl at least; it's more balanced, behaves the same as Standard, & CMDR Damage isn't a true problem anymore.

But I digress yet again. When the Half Angel/Half Demon Abominations brought us 4 colors, what I'd actually want more from WotC is the idea of setting all enemyship aside for good. Just imagine these enemy guilds actually appreciating, & learning from their former foes:

& = Life is also a kind of Progress, like all of everything. The Selesnya Conclave may be , but their agendas are actually comparable to Licht Kreis of Under Night IN-BIRTH fame, having an agenda though in control, is a perfect example of Peace-Loving Religious Extremists that would definitely at least earn the alliance of either The Golgari Swarm, &/or even The Orzhov Syndicate . Yep, This Religious Conclave is PRIME Abzan Material. Both the Izzet League, & the Selesnya Conclave are true villain groups at heart, & progress is literally all Dimensional layers; not just our 4D (Yep! I'm not kidding you! If we're in 3D, our world would be motionless at the status we're at. Dimension 4? Time; as in a Passage of Standard Time. It best resembles Cones on the vertical dimension. But what is Dimension 5? XP) status we're in. Progress is Mathematics. Progress is Life. Progress is even Infinity Transcendence. "All these people in my life... I don't want to lose anymore! & I won't give up this universe of hours! (God Gundam turns Gold, & nullifies DG Urube's attack.) (DG Urube: Uhh...?) Masters Taught me that! Our Great Homeland! OUR PRECIOUS PLANET EARTH! IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF LIFE!"

Comparable to: Ink-Treader Nephilim / Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis

See? That is not hard at all to think about! Here's another if you wish to have a good idea; oh, & if this is too much, don't fret! I'd still be happy anyway if WotC even did Wedge Alliances.

& = Somebody tell that idiot Teysa Karlov The Gruul Clans are much better than they were after "That Cyclopean Beast" died after some time. Just because The Gruul Clans are Savages, doesn't mean they aren't without some kind of mind; Shamans. While actual Barbaric members just want to strike at anything they see, the Shamans are pretty much the intelligence Gruul has. Suffice to say, The Orzhov Syndicate demands Money as a Mafia-Like Gang, & if you have none, prepare to have a Blood Tithe oversizing More than 100% of all your blood you will ever have your entire life. Blatant Hypocrisy. While the Gruul Clans are savage indeed, the Orzhov Syndicate demands your loyalty to them, or you'd have to pay the rest of aforementioned Tithe as a Spirit; Departed Souls. So, how can MTG's Worst Character ever (Hint, Everyone loves her but me. & is .) Support the Gruul Clans' cause? Not even The Titans from AEONS ago would've thought of this; those who the Gruul Clans kill alone, are already; supposedly, becoming Departed Souls as well. This could apply to all guilds actually; even when the Ghost Council of Orzhova , & Obzedat, Ghost Council were all killed by Kaya, Bane of the Dead . Shamans are meant to come in contact with the realm of the dead; Spirits both good & evil. But what to do with the more barbaric of the Gruul Clans? They've wanted to kill the Plane of Existence they're feet have been on in the first place! Well, oddly, This Mafia had more Action Extorting others as they drain their blood for profit, & their Growth only made them the supreme Monetary Group in the Multiverse. The Orzhov Syndicate & The Gruul Clans are not so different than you'd think. "Let me clarify the economics for you Gina. Sensational patients bring recognition. Recognition brings money. And money keeps Wellhaven's doors open. You should be thanking me." Better than the MCU version by a MILE! So... Maybe Teysa should thank Domri Rade after AEONS of Genocide? I, mean, The Gruul Clans are far better than the Guildless anyway.

Comparable to: Dune-Brood Nephilim / Saskia the Unyielding

& = Taking Order & Chaos in moderation, 50/50 style. The Boros Legion could act like an actual Military; planning out all possible outcomes; you know; actually Military planning? & The House of Dimir can hide evidence until actual confirmation of such design is in order. In fact, what if I told you Chaos > Order anyway? Both The House of Dimir, & The Boros Legion; which have their own ways of chaos; The House of Dimir can not only do this in secret, but makes matters worse for others. The Boros Legion is just an army of Mindless Soldiers, Angels, even stuff you'd wish weren't a part of this. Enforcing w/ raw emotion, these both describe Chaos in their own unique way; take it from a famous Psychologist I'm making anonymous about this: "You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star" This quote actually states that Chaos; an Idea of fiction entirely seen as evil, but is actually seen by so few as a good thing more than Cosmos, Order, the like. If that philosophy is wrong, despite from a credible source, I dunno what to think...

Comparable to: Yore-Tiller Nephilim / Breya, Etherium Shaper

& = The Circle of Life benefits from even Zygotes or even the undead. If The Golgari Swarm, & the Azorius Senate is to coexist with one another, A mere reference to The Lion King; which demonstrates life & death are entirely a way of life; an Unthinkable Natural Law (A Fan-Based Translation of a crappy Touhou Project Game, for reference.) neither Justice, nor anyone; Active, Inactive, Dead, even Transcending Death, can stop. It is a part of all of us, & it would take a damn good stasis to stop something us humans have to accept when we witness our first death in our lives. So how does the Swarm, & Senate coexist with one another? Just let time pass, & maybe more than just Ravnica as a whole can learn from what should've been a Swahiili Folk Tale, but satirizes a crappy tale by an even crapier playright. But it still stood the test of time anyway, so, maybe a view? (Just watch the Reboot of The Lion King.)

Comparable to: Witch-Maw Nephilim / Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

& = Momir Vig, Simic Visionary is a bigger villain than Rakdos, the Showstopper altogether. After the former's death (?), The Simic Combine eventually brought up Prime Speaker Vannifar , who alloed the Simic Combine more freedom for creature creation; given the guidelines of said Guild. This resulted in more chaos than Momir Vig could only dream of doing; & Their Selfishness from the bias from other Guilds, actually prove both the Simic Combine, & The Cult of Rakdos, aren't so different as they would believe to be. "All souls are equal and alike, and have the similar nature and qualities."

Comparable to: Glint-Eye Nephilim / Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Yeah, I might have crossed many lines, but I still think there should also be Bonds representing Wedge Colors, &, as far as this post goes, Bonds that set all enemyships aside for good; a bit of genius borrowed from the Nephilim Scum that I don't even know if they were driven to extinction already. I apologize for making this kind of topic; It was paved w/ good intentions, but I really would like my 4 Color Stuff for real now. These have been the biggest enemies between Guilds since the beginning of all this. I really just made this so such enemyships can have a way to coexist between them, & likely some others. Oh, one last thing, If you find anything wrong about my opinions about this (& trust me, you actually might.); just tell me your thoughts how such enemyships would be set aside, all while actually having a possible alliance. This took me all day just to make; I hope you're glad. This wasn't a Bad Netflix Original Movie I made in the first place. Or a ruination of SPIRIT: Stallion of the Cimarron in the form of a female-targeted Pony based series that makes MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC look like Taysir of Rabiah, Nicol Bolas, & even Urza's decapitated head (All Awesome). & it takes SO MUCH for me to say MLP is better than just "Something without Representation" DX

Alright. Enough of this. I'd like some thought for this, please. I've other stuff to do though... Apologies again, & one more apology for the huge wall of text... Thank you for your time. ^_^

Boza on War of the Spark

I have to agree with that - planeswalkers are difficult to parse, especially for newer players, and the problem is exacerbated when multiples are played.

However, even with a planeswalker in every pack, the problem will be mitigated somewhat:

  • I imagine there will be lower rarity walkers, which will be less complex (2 abilities only for example);

  • additionally, you can realistically play only 3 out of 6 walkers in your pack, since the other will not fit your colors. And you cannot expect to draw more than 2 of those in the average game.

  • and, most walkers are less complex than certain rares or mythics - i think that Captive Audience is more complex than say Domri Rade ;

  • finally, most walkers really have 2 abilities - a plus and a minus ability and an ultimate, which the opponent does not care what it does, just how much loyalty it takes to activate and stopping it.

ZendikariWol on The Shamans of Jund

Domri Rade : +1 is not very good? Draws you around 1/3 of a card every turn. I'm assuming you're playing him for his ult, which is kind of a bad idea. No player in their right mind is gonna let that boi get his ultimate out, and with four people at the table? Not likely.

Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro : the most expensive card in your deck is Woodfall Primus at 8 mana (yes, I know Blasphemous Act is 9 technically but realistically it's 1). What do you need with all this mana after turn 4? Casting your whole hand every turn? You don't have the draw to sustain that.

Love Prophetic Flamespeaker in a voltron deck but here it's kinda shaky. Theater of Horrors seems much better.

Thurbajen on Gishath Gonna Dump His Boyos

triproberts12 Hey Bud. Yeah, all the cards in the main board I own, and most in the Maybeboard. Just read the article and that was really interesting. Guess I should probably run Sakura-Tribe Elder over Explosive Vegetation !

Would you say that Territorial Allosaurus should be ran over Domri Rade then? As it can be hit off of Gishath, Sun's Avatar ? I just find that he comes down, makes something fight and then dies, and even if he survives he then has a 30% chance of drawing you a card.

I agree with you on Huatli, Warrior Poet , and I think that does probably mean that Charging Monstrosaur is better, but I'd still put in things like Sunforger above it. I still don't even think that Vanquisher's Banner is that good in this deck, and adding something like Crush Contraband a long with Sunforger would be a better include.

Scattered Groves and Sheltered Thicket should probably be in the lad base anyway. I don't know about going all the way up to 40 lands as that's how many I have in my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck! Average on EDHREC is now at 38, so I should go up one or maybe even two.

It has occurred to me that there is a sweet combo with one of the indestructible spells like Make a Stand and a combination of Raptor Hatchling or Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor . In combination with Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge this would make a quick win. Would you say that this is worth going for and building in? Or am I convoluting the strategy!

Once again if there's anything I can do on your tappedout let me know and I would be happy to oblige.
