Dormant Sliver Discussion

Dormant Sliver is great in EDH. The card draw it provides is massive, and its downside is easily avoidable with Hibernation Sliver.

Paradox Engine is a must in sliver commander decks, since it pairs so nicely with Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver. You use your slivers to cast a sliver to untap your slivers to play another sliver to untap your slivers to . . . If you have Dormant Sliver in play, you can keep these shenanigans going for quite a while.

I also think you are incorrect about Sliver Overlord vs. Sliver Hivelord--Overlord simply provides a lot more utility as your commander. You can tutor your Hibernation Sliver to make your Dormant Sliver more effective. You can tutor your Hivelord to give your slivers indestructible. You can tutor your Crystalline Sliver if their deck is heavy on removal. You can tutor your Necrotic Sliver if they are about to combo out. You can . . . I think you get the point.

Ah, glad to see Slivers come up. My friend and I made a deck a little while ago using Dormant Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, Firewake Sliver, and Intruder Alarm to make the jankiest of combo decks. Love it, and love the article.

I highly recommend Hibernation Sliver and Dormant Sliver. Hibernation Sliver is a fantastic card, giving you the option of paying a measly two life to protect any critical slivers from removal or wraths. Dormant Sliver gives incredible card advantage, and the downside is easily worked around. It pairs well with Hibernation Sliver--you can pay two life and bounce your Dormant Sliver before combat, allow your slivers to attack, then return and receive card draw in your second main.

The MVP of my sliver deck is definitely Dormant Sliver. It is easy to kill/sac it when the team is ready to swing in and often buries your opponents under a mountain of card advantage. Also Phyrexian Reclamation is great as slivers are so vulnerable to board wipe. If you want I can give other suggestions but they tend to be pricy.

Dormant Sliver is an oft-overlooked card that can be incredibly powerful in a sliver deck. You play it and a bunch of other slivers, draw cards, then, when you want to attack, you merely bounce it to your hand with Hibernation Sliver. The amount of card draw it gives is well worth building around its downside.

Here's the partner sliver deck I said I'd brew: Just Gimme a Minute.... It's centered around Dormant Sliver and Cautery Sliver. It takes a bit to get going, but it snowballs after that. Obviously it's tuned for multiplayer.

@TheTindell179: The most feasible Sliver deck I've seen is this one with Dormant Sliver. It has a lot of synergy and a combo win condition via Freed from the Real. If you wanted a combat centered strategy I think you picked some good colors. You are missing out on some removal and tutor support via black but getting access to pump spells, draw, and trample. It will be a headache to deal with because of Shroud, but you also lose out on combat shenanigans. I think it would be pretty good but you'd have to test it out.
