Galerider Sliver Discussion

Also take a look at my deck Sliver Collection (which I apparently can't link to). For your deck I would suggest Coat of Arms, Galerider Sliver, and card: building a sideboard.

I know you try to be mosty creature based, but Descendants' Path would fit well.

Regarding slivers, i would add Gemhide Sliver as manaweft 5-8 to spead up the count. I used to run just fast ones to up the count on the field (like the mana ones, haste ones, some evasion ones such as Galerider Sliver and +attack givers such as sinew) and to end it Virulent Sliver and Phantasmal Image, cause poison stacks. This means if you have 2 virulent both have poison 2. All the other nice ones such as necrotic and harmonic can easily be sideboarded.

Also i would add 4 Leyline of Lifeforce to the side, it is just incredible against control.

I like slivers, so good luck!

Boundless Realms barely services the deck and you need way more green mana fixing, all your low drop slivers are green and all your mana fixing slivers are green so green needs to be the first color you get out of the gate. Another Seaside Citadel wouldn't hurt and you probably want Temple of Malady for your scry land.

I would say you should probably choose between Liliana, the Last Hope and more Krenko, Mob Boss since both require a second Arcane Adaptation on the field (first is always for Slivers). But I suppose that's what your Diabolic Tutor is for? Still a little stretched of a combo if it goes that long.

For suggestions, maybe a Galerider Sliver for flying shenanigans, but really what I want to see in this deck is Firewake Sliver, Firewake sliver is basically a bomb giving all your little tokens haste and the ability to sac themselves and hyper pump an unblocked sliver.

4x Collected Company instead of some of your high drop slivers.

-3x Virulent Sliver Why are you trying to win through normal damage AND infect. Any player will tell you that it's a counter-intuitive thing to do.

+1 Galerider Sliver: You want to be seeing one of these every game in almost every matchup.

-2x Manaweft Sliver 8 copies is absolutely insane. You're going to be flooded way too often considering that your average curve isn't that high.

Necrotic Sliver What is your plan against Ensnaring Bridge, Ghostly Prison, and combo pieces like Gideon of the Trials (some builds of Ad Nauseam)?

I have a sliver deck as well & will make a few suggestions if i may? Crystalline Sliver is by far the best sliver ever printed, imo, but he is not legal in Modern- & the next best thing is Diffusion Sliver! Diffusion Sliver &/or Opaline Sliver are crucial to playing slivers, since targeted removal is a sliver-deck's greatest enemy.. & unlike many sliver-abilities, their abilities actually stack, so with 2 Diffusion Slivers in play, a Path to Exile or Fatal Push or Lightning Bolt would cost FIVE mana just to take out one of your slivers.. I see you have 2 Diffusion Sliver, but since he is so important to keep your engine going, i personally prefer to run 3 of them (they are not aggressive enough to run 4x though, imo). Sentinel Sliver is amazing, & i would recommend 2x in every sliver deck! You can even attack, then use tapping abilities during 2nd Main Phase, effectively giving you a 2nd turn in comparison to running without him. Megantic Sliver is a total game-changer, and i have found 2x Megantic to be very very good. I run 4x Manaweft to be able to cast him, though, plus 1x Gemhide Sliver. Groundshaker Sliver is pretty bad.. I think Battering Sliver is actually better, but he is pretty bad too, imo.. I would cut them in fvor of Megantic Sliver. For a mana-base, 4x Sliver Hive is worth every penny, and 4 Ancient Ziggurat is nearly the same thing for about $1 (that is if you cut some of the sorceries, which i would personally cut all of them in favor of more slivers!). I think Spinneret Sliver is pretty terrible when you could be running Galerider Sliver as a 1-drop with a better ability. Predatory Sliver should be a 4-of, as should Sinew Sliver, which i am surprised to not see here. With 4x Venom Sliver, i would definitely recommend running at least 2x each of Striking Sliver & Bonescythe Sliver!! Another good card to run with the deathtouch is Quilled Sliver, though i wouldn't run more than 1-2 since his targets are limited to attacking/blocking creatures. Blur Sliver is ok, but i have found that cutting him is better- by the time you cast him, you should have other slivers in play, and every single sliver gives its ability to every other sliver, with or without the haste. I would rather give the slivers already in play more abilities instead of giving the cards yet to be played the ability to do the SAME THING as all the other slivers one turn earlier . Since it doesn't help with Predatory/Sinew's ability, i would cut Hardened Scales in favor of something like Collected Company. Harmonic Sliver is a must-have sideboard card, and i run 1x in my mainboard as well. Remember that Virulent Sliver has POISONOUS 1, not Infect- what this means is that your pump spells don't add any additional poison counters to your opponent; each sliver will only give them one poison counter when it connects (unless the pump is from Double Strike! More reason to play Bonescythe Sliver! That would double the poison counters as well). Anyways, sorry for the rant, but hopefully I've given you some ideas! I love slivers!! A couple more fun slivers as 1-ofs are Pulmonic Sliver and Telekinetic Sliver.. so many awesome abilities! Check out my Slivershod deck! My nephew played my Sliver deck against me with my Zombie deck and ended up swinging at me with 150+ damage at once, with Flying, Deathtouch, Double Strike, Lifelink, Indestructible, & a Diffusion Sliver!! That just shows how insanely out of hand they can get if they go un-checked. Good luck!

Overall Record

Games 4-4

Matches 2-2

Match 1 - Win - Grixis Control

The deck works a bit better with the Flooded Strand fetch lands. I need a pair of Steam Vents to make it even more consistent to fetch all the America colors. This match was pretty easy as I flew over all his creatures and he made some mistakes. Scryed cards to the top and then fetched to shuffle them away.

Match 2 - Win - Slivers Company

Firespout was the key all star mvp player here. Both games I drew one and cleared his board or 3 creatures before they got out of range with the lords or gaind flying from Galerider Sliver. The vigilance on Mantis Rider is extremely helpful. I can attack without the fear of being killed on the return.

Match 3 - Loss - Gifts Storm

I can't stop the combo and wasn't fast enough to kill him before Grapeshot took me out. He was kind enough to play it out and show me how the storm combo worked. I learned that Grapeshot produces the copies on cast. So if you cast it, leave it on the stack and then Remand it and play it again you trigger the copies both times and can kill with only a storm count of 10.

Match 4 - Loss - B/G Excavator

The link isn't accurate. It was more a B/G Jund deck with Tarmogoyf and Liliana of the Veil with the Ghost Quarter, Ramunap Excavator package. I think the green land destruction is going to become hot because it doesn't cost you much to play it and gives huge upside. More of these decks want Ghost Quarter anyway to deal with TRON or Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

I died fast since I only had 3 basics he destroyed all my lands then my creatures with Fatal Push and the sacrifice mode from Liliana. It was a blow out. Never drew a Lightning Bolt of Path to Exile to deal with the Excavator.

Metagame

Appears pretty stable some weeks people bring new decks of a new person shows up but the core stays the same. Still no TRON which I think is interesting since its one of the top decks at SCG and Grand Prix Modern events.

Overall Record

Games 6-5

Matches 2-2

Match 1 - Win - G/W Human Company

He never played a Collected Company. My advantage was my deck is faster with more one drops and mono colored so I could deployed my creatures better. CoCo would have beat me. Brave the Elements was an Allstar again in the second game.

Match 2 - Win - Grixis Control

I thought he was playing Death's Shadow but it never appeared. First game I was the aggro beat down and won. Second game I should have mulliganed a one land hand but didn't and lost. 3rd game Rest in Peace prevented the Lightning Bolt - Snapcaster Mage - Lightning Bolt combo and I won.

Match 3 - Loss - Sliver's Company

It was a tough game with both decks trying to be the beatdown. I lost in the end because he was able to give all his slivers flying with Galerider Sliver and I couldn't win the damage race without blocking.

Match 4 - Loss - Eldrazi and Taxes

His creatures were just too big. Reality Smasher and Thought-Knot Seer... Urgh. Also my trump card Brave the Elements doesn't work against colorless creatures. :(

Metagame

I'm seeing alot of different decks. Haven't seen a Storm deck or any variations of TRON.

Thanks for the comment I will be sure to add Manaweft Sliver but I think that I will wait for Galerider Sliver just because cost. Later I will probably switch them out after I get the deck. Thanks for the suggestions!!
