Galerider Sliver Discussion
2 days ago
enpc, you make a compelling argument for the removal of Unnatural Selection. I have to admit, i'm feel more and more convinced that I should swap it out. However, the Emperor example was a poor one. Allow me to submit another: During a game of Multiplayer (6 opponents I believe, including myself) commander I stole The Gitrog Monster and proceeded to bash that player with their own commander. The ramp and card draw The Gitrog Sliver provided was magnificent. It enabled me to play more and more slivers that in turn made me an absurd threat. All the other players at the table were also afraid to play their commanders for roughly 3 turns before I reduced that poor Gitrog player to nothing. So, again you can see why I'm hesitant to remove that card.
If I were to remove that card however, then for tutoring options there is only ONE choice here: Demonic Tutor. Amazing card that is overdue for a reprint. This is minor, but what frustrates me is that the DCI judge promo for this card is roughly $300. That as far as I know is the only foil instance of that card. I want it, but not at that price. The last planned high priced acquisition on my list is Sol Ring, and i'm kind of looking forward to it being the last one of this deck but I digress...I still do agree with you that Demonic Tutor would have more of an impact. I'll pick up a cheaper copy sometime and test it out. I won't make an official change until i'm ready.
DiabeticFire, thanks again for keeping up with my deck and i'm flattered that you would like to pilot a version of your own. In this post i'll address your card suggestions, as to my thoughts on your card choices i'll address those in a later response.
Shared Animosity - This card seems to be more at home in a aggro deck, however I still want to give it some consideration. My deck has a slant more toward control, but it is indeed a midrange deck. Perhaps this is just the thing I needed to help give me a more viable aggro strategy when some of my combo pieces get removed. I want to test this card out. For now, it's in the same lane of consideration as Diabolic Tutor for a possible replacement for Unnatural Selection.
Cover of Darkness - This decks is already packed with evasion in the form of Shifting Sliver, Galerider Sliver, Winged Sliver and to a lesser degree, Striking Sliver and Bonescythe Sliver. This card does add another option, but the evasion options for this deck are already very well populated and aren't in need of more options.
Unclaimed Territory - interesting that you'd compare this to Gemstone Mine when it's really a strictly worse Cavern of Souls. I do see your argument that not having to worry about mining counters it's primary advantage over Gemstone, it's draw back just simply doesn't make it worth it as there are plenty of other cards in the deck that aren't slivers. What could hurt more is not being able to play a Counterspell when needed. I'll think it over, but for now I just don't see it as a viable replacement.

first of all ya gotta cut it down to 60 cards. second thing you need to do is get some dual lands in that mana base. i'd heavily recommend fetchlands and shocklands, and cutting the lands down to 24 at most.
cut the "archetypes". not only are a couple of them ridiculously high mana cost, but they're not slivers, so they're worthless. you can find actual slivers that grant either the same or similar keywords. for example, Galerider Sliver instead of Archetype of Imagination.
but like sweetaction says, you need to decide what format this is for before we can really help you.
heres the sliver deck i use for Modern-format FNM that has worked pretty well for me.

A play set of Galerider Sliver is a must for Slivers.

Looks like your deck could use a little help. First I'd add sets of Sliver Hive and Unclaimed Territory to make your mana work a little easier. A set of Cavern of Souls would also help, but they're pretty expensive right now so I wouldn't fault you for not getting them. Next, I'd max out on 4-of the best slivers: Predatory Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, and I'd consider Sedge Sliver as well (you already have 4 Sinew Sliver, which is great!). Your 2x Spinneret Sliver and 2 of your Venom Slivers can be replaced with Galerider Sliver since flying is better than reach and lets your team get through more often. I'd cut the Diabolic Tutors since they're too slow for an aggressive deck like this and replace them with 2x Dismember and another Aether Vial if you can find one. If you really want the tutoring effect, 1 or 2 Homing Slivers would be better anyway.

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.
