Galerider Sliver Discussion

_Delta_ on Paradox and Iona: In Memoriam

1 month ago

My favorite time was using my Sliver Overlord deck, I got my commander out on turn 4 and then the following turn proceeded to have a Manaweft Sliver + Heart Sliver in play alongside Galerider Sliver and a Paradox Engine . From there on turn 6, I played basically every sliver ( Sliver Legion and the like of course) in my deck and to add insult to injury stole one of my two opponent's commanders, in this case The Scarab God using my commander via Unnatural Selection and they just called it game there.

Good question cerobins5. I actually think green and red is where you want to be a for an aggro slivers deck. You could try to splash blue for Galerider Sliver and some better draw spells, but the mana base is going to get pricey. Gemhide Sliver or Manaweft Sliver can help out, but it's probably not worth it for an aggro deck.

_Delta_ on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

I play Sliver Overlord , and while voltron is not exactly my first thought at winning, it certainly is quite possible when you have a 7/7 that can gain a lot of keywords quickly when you search up Bonescythe Sliver , Shifting Sliver , Galerider Sliver , and play effects from Sliver Legion , Magma Sliver , etc.

As I mentioned on your thread, and as alias42 mentioned above, this deck does not meet the requirements for Standard, for which you currently have it labeled. Upon closer inspection, it does not seem to be Modern-legal either, though you can probably make it Modern-legal with a few changes. Specificall, Heart Sliver and Shifting Sliver are not Modern-legal. There might be others, but those are the two that immediately jump out at me.

Some general deckbuilding advise that will apply to all formats:

Lands that enter the battlefield tapped are bad, as they put you a turn behind. Transguild Promenade in particular is awful--not only do you not gain an extra land on the turn you play it, it additionally puts you behind a land.

Slivers are a hyper-aggressive tribe, and you want to maximize this. Focus on slivers with low mana costs and effects that stack, and run four copies of those, then run 2-3 copies of slivers whose abilities do not stack. For example, Predatory Sliver, Sinew Sliver, and Muscle Sliver (not Modern-legal) each give your creatures +1/+1, for the low cost of 2 mana. I'd probably run a full set of 12, (or 8 if you are moving to Modern).

Heart Sliver and Crystalline Sliver (neither are modern-legal) are fantastic, but multiple instances of Haste or Shroud do nothing for you. These are both cards you want to draw exactly one copy of, so running 3 of either should be fine. The one exception to this rule would be Galerider Sliver (which is a strict upgrade to the Winged Sliver you are currently running, and is Modern-legal). Because this costs one mana, you want to maximize your chances of having this in your opening hand, so you at least have something productive to do on turn 1. I'd run four copies.

Personally, I don't think any of the five-mana slivers are worth it in a 60-card constructed deck. You generally have better things to do with your time and mana.

Once you've figured out your format, I can try to give a bit more specific advice on what slivers to run.

Galerider Sliver is good, but it's expensive. Leeching Sliver is another good one, and a good anti-boardwipe one is Pulmonic Sliver. Shadow Sliver is good, since no one uses the shadow mechanic anymore. Another similar one is Shifting Sliver.

I would use Galerider Sliver if your using Winged Sliver same purpose just one mana less.

Paragon of Gathering Mists, Diffusion Sliver, Rattlechains, Shadow Sliver, Shifting Sliver and Kopala, Warden of Waves could help protect your commander and give additional abilities.

Forgot to add the changes that I made with my mentor. We added 2x Manaweft Sliver, added 2x Aether Vials, and removed the dead weight cards (Fungus Sliver), added more Striking Sliver, and more Galerider Sliver to get the fast aggro in. Switched Thorncaster Sliver to sideboard to try in the Homing Sliver. Thanks itachi45!
