Galerider Sliver Discussion

TheNinjaPhoenix on The True Hive Mind

Galerider Sliver + Pulmonic Sliver give me the flying options. I am thinking of adding Winged back in but I'm now down to just 106 cards.

Six cuts and then I can switch and substitute based on how it performs in the meta. I am tempted to remove Acidic Sliver and Firewake Sliver at this time, as well as perhaps Aether Vial.

4 of Manaweft Sliver is a must in any sliver deck with more than 2 colors. If you can get the budget for it, Sliver Hive is also huge. Galerider Sliver is easily one of the strongest slivers around, and even though pricey, having 4 of them will be a huge boon. Also consider Venom Sliver for some degenerate deathtouch + first strike business. It also combos beautifully with Thorncaster Sliver's ping effect.

If I was going to cut something from this deck, it would probably be all the white slivers, the Battle Slivers and possibly the Megantic Sliver.

For non-sliver cards that are reasonably budget and help a lot in a tribal deck like this check out Distant Melody and Descendants' Path.

Honestly, just finding slivers that fit your needs is always helpful.

Evasion is always nice -
Galerider Sliver
Winged Sliver
Shifting Sliver
Much more risky Shadow Sliver

Sliver Lords:
Muscle Sliver
Might Sliver
Sinew Sliver
etc

Tools -
Homing Sliver
Hibernation Sliver, especially useful for saving slivers that are targeted.
etc

And my favorite combo piece and honorary sliver, Amoeboid Changeling is a must. He makes opponents threats into slivers and Overlord can steal them.

As a sliver EDH player, I can tell you that tons of slivers will be useful, but the ones I said are the ones I often tutor for, along with, as Mind said, good old Meathooks, Crystaline sliver.

This deck is just for casual play against friends. Only reason i didn't addGalerider Sliver was to make it cost effective, however ill look into adding Virulent Sliver for sure

What format is this for? Manabase depends on format. Modern (fetches and shocks), Kitchen Table (Fetches and duals), Pauper (Lifegain tapplands, bouncelands and scrylands)

I recommend Virulent Sliver. Galerider Sliver is better than winged sliver.

The Panorama lands are never ideal and only useful in going extremely budget, but you're going to want shocks (or something with basic land types) to accompany the fetches. Fetches and lands like Prairie Stream can be a substitution until you obtain Hallowed Fountains and the like, but without a solid base of 20~ lands, I wouldn't even bother building a 5C Commander deck until you have an efficient mana base. The reason for 10 fetches, 10 shocks, 10 duals is so that way you have a fluid mana base and can cast cards from turn 1 forward. Mathematically speaking, you're going to want at least 20 of these lands to form your, "Base" and overload on lands like Exotic Orchard and City of Brass or even tri-lands so your turn 2s can be strong. Fewer than 20 may have you fighting for colors with your own mana base up to turn four, which is abysmally slow. Fetches let you think ahead and grab what you will be needing at the time, rather than be stuck with a Mountain, Jungle Shrine, and Plains when you have a hand with Galerider Sliver, Syphon Sliver, and Crystalline Sliver.

Make no mistake: The fetches are practically vital and I'd encourage you to run all of them that you can. Shocks are what give the fetches their strength for 5C decks in Commander, though, especially one like Slivers where you may need four different colors on your first four turns. Exchanging 3 life to grab a Stomping Ground to cast your first turn Striking Sliver into Gemhide Sliver is going to be incredibly important, and the less you have to rely on easily destructible permanents for your mana colors, the better (ergo, having 4 colors in two lands, even if you're down 6 life, is much, much better than using a Panorama to grab a basic and possibly being at the mercy of the topdeck for your other colors).

Summary: Get shocks, use all 10 shocks plus whatever fetches you have. Slow fetches may be able to fill in for the other five fetches you're missing temporarily (speaking of ones like Grasslands, Flood Plain, or something. I've seen lots of players properly mana fix with them for Slivers and it's easier to mana fix with those since colorless mana only helps 5C Commander decks when you've already met your colored mana requirements). Exotic Orchard, Forbidden Orchard, Sliver Hive, Ancient Ziggurat, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Cavern of Souls, filter lands like Wooded Bastion, etc., can help you reach 35-37 without much issue.

nice,mana doe the trick:)

Ik saw you have Amoeboid Changeling in your sidebord,but it most definitely must go in the main because of the combo with Sliver Hivelord.

with the changeling you can turn a creature your opponent controlls into a sliver an gain control of it with the hivlord. best thing is it stays under your controll permanently.

Another combo is Amoeboid Changeling + Sliver Hivelord + Necrotic Sliveryou change an opponant's creature in to a sliver, gain controll of it, pay sacrafice it and destroy another permanent :)

Otherslivers you could use are the Crypt Sliver and Galerider Sliver

chosenone124 on provoke and menace

Scenario 1:

Provoke says "block it if able". 1 Squire is unable to block a creature with menace. Same situation if you had Galerider Sliver and Shifting Sliver.

Scenario 2:

If they have two blockers, and only one is provoked, it still cannot block a creature with menace. So it still does not block.

However, if they choose to block your Hunting Sliver with 2 unprovoked Squires, the provoked Squire will be able to block and must block as well.
