This doesn't look bad but I think you're missing some of the key slivers:

Shifting Sliver : Makes all you're slivers unblockable unless you're going up against another sliver deck.

Crypt Sliver : helps to avoid combat damage from blockers/combat.

Frenetic Sliver : this one is really clutch. You can just use him in response to a boardwipe to save creatures or potentially save creatures during combat. It can also be paired with Dregscape Sliver so you unearth then before the end step activate the Frenetic and choose to order the Dregscape's sacrifice effect before the Frenetic's return effect so the sacrafice from the unearth happens before the creature is returned and fissiles. so you can essentially play all the cards from your graveyard for , Provided you win the coin flip.

Obviously, the other legionaries, Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen are really fun and quite good if you can afford them or proxy them.

If you want an infinite combo piece you could look at Intruder Alarm which when paired with one of the mana producing slivers can let you play out your entire hand or if you have the Sliver Overlord out, every sliver in the deck.

Yeah, I've won quite a few games because of Dregscape Sliver , and he hasn't even been out that long lol. He's probably one of my favorites now. So I'd highly recommend the addition if you can fit him.

Logo79 I was actually looking for a place to put Dregscape Sliver then abandoned the idea, now I’m reconsidering. It is a very powerful sliver. And Sundial of the Infinite is probably one of my favorite cards. I use it in my Phage the Untouchable deck and it puts in work

I like your build, but I would highly recommend running Dregscape Sliver . Not only is it a cheap and effective return engine, if you pair it with Sundial of the Infinite you keep those creatures too. Just end your turn while the exile ability goes on the stack and they stay. Besides that, if you have Homing Sliver in play, you can keep pitching a bunch of slivers to the yard and finish with dregscape to return them all for cheap and most likely kill.

Hey Eledain,

No worries, tribal decks can be confusing at times! I've played Merfolk, Humans, Spirits, Slivers, and more, so I get it. To answer your questions:

1) Creatures like Diffusion Sliver , Leeching Sliver , and Lavabelly Sliver stack depending on how many you have. To be more technical, each additional copy would trigger its own instance. For example, if you had two Diffusion Sliver s, your opponent would decided whether or not to pay the 2 mana for the first one, but they would still have to pay 2 more mana for the second one if they wanted their spell or ability to resolve. Likewise, if you had two Leeching Sliver s or Lavabelly Sliver s, each copy would trigger separately, so the first copy would do one damage, and then the second copy would do its one damage.

2) Crystalline Sliver only affects Slivers on the battlefield. Unless its text specifically mentions cards in the graveyard, like Silent Gravestone or Grafdigger's Cage , it won't give Slivers in the graveyard shroud. Dregscape Sliver will still work.

3) I usually board in Harmonic Sliver in matchups where I expect the opponent to almost always have artifacts or enchantments present, like Affinity, Hardened Scales, or Red Prison. I rarely side Aether Vial out if I'm on the play, but if I'm on the draw, it usually gets replaced, as Vial is significantly worse on the draw. However, in matchups like the above, I prefer having Harmonic Sliver even if it means occasionally having to nuke my own Vial, as taking care of Arcbound Ravager , Hardened Scales , or things like Ensnaring Bridge or Chalice of the Void is well worth it.

Hope that helps!

Hey mate,

I have some (stupid) questions about slivers:

  1. I know that some Slivers (Give Lifelink, Vigilance, and so on) don't stack and some (all Slivers get +1/+1) do stack. But what about the likes of Diffusion Sliver , Leeching Sliver or the new Lavabelly Sliver . I always thought I know the rules pretty good for an amateur, but I'm really not sure anymore. :-) How can I identify if they stack or not?

  2. If I have a Crystalline Sliver on the battlefield, I can't target my own slivers. Am I right? But the new Dregscape Sliver should still work imho, shouldn't it?

  3. If your own Aether Vial is the only artifact or enchantment on the battlefield and you play your Harmonic Sliver you must destroy your own Vial? How do you handle this in the matchups where you side in Harmonic Sliver ?

Thanks in advance.

So many replies, so many thoughts! The spoilers have been late have got me so excited! Let me respond to one thing at a time:

  • Odysseus_97, Honestly, Morophon, the Boundless doesn't appeal to me on an aesthetic level. The art is rather "meh", but it's "Spells of the chosen type you cast cost less to cast. This effect reduces only the amount of coloured mana you pay." does have my attention. A cmc of does leave this card strictly in the mid-late game bomb territory. I'm going to be honest, I haven't come to a conclusion on what to do with this. But it's...interesting.

  • _Delta_, I heard about the new slivers from my playgroup and knew that Lavabelly Sliver was an auto include. Why? Simple: It's a new Sliver Queen game ending combo: Sliver Queen + Basal Sliver + Lavabelly Sliver - with all three on the battlefield, all that's required is to activate Sliver Queen 's ability to generate a Sliver Token. That token will have Lavabelly Sliver 's ETB effect - draining 1 point of damage from any target. Sacrifice that token for , to generate...yes you guessed it another Sliver creature token. It's simply rinse, wash, repeat - until all non-slivers (or rival hives) are dead. Now, what do I cut? I think it has to be Blur Sliver or Winged Sliver . The verdict is still out. Blur Sliver has more functionality while Winged offers evasion. I'll experiment between the two. Dregscape Sliver and Tempered Sliver also crossed my radar as well. I feel like Hibernation Sliver does the job of protecting slivers on the battlefield a bit better than Dregscape Sliver . Tempered Sliver belongs in more aggro based decks, but it is a very nice sliver. Now, onto the 800 lbs. elephant in the room - The First Sliver . I have to have it. I haven't figured out exactly what to do with it...but I have to have it. But what to cut? I'm still thinking on that.

  • Vlasiax, Oh my yes - there are great slivers indeed. Refer to my post to _Delta_ regarding what i'm going to do with Lavabelly Sliver and the rest. I'm so hype for this set as well!

  • OP_Sigma, make sure you get your hands on a Basal Sliver and Sliver Queen . Yet another 3 card game ending combo with the best Sliver ever printed.

  • DGenerationX61, I've got two words for ya! I jest. WWF was pretty awesome. But back to the topic at had - I have my hand on F5 refreshing like crazy. I can't wait to see what else Wizards has in store. I was so desperate for new Slivers I started making up my own - you can see my "dream sliver" posted in the comments somewhere lol. I can't wait to tweak this deck with new Slivers.
