Gemhide Sliver Discussion

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Nice start for your first five color Commander deck. If you have $120 to spend on your deck my advice is allocate at least $50 of that to the manabase and cards that can help with color fixing.

Budget cards to help the manabase to consider adding:

With all the Changlings consider Gemhide? It and any Changling can tap to make any color of mana. Consider Elder? It can by itself tap to make two colors of mana, but as you add to the battlefield different colored permanents it can tap for more colors.

I don't think the Maze's End/Gates strategy is worth it for your deck. This strategy needs more Gate themed cards to take more advantage of Gates. Gates are terrible lands unless you can get value from them other than just Maze. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is the budget Maze's End/Gates Commander since he can search for and put Maze or a Gate onto the battlefield and if you bounce him he can repeat.

Currently the manabase here is in my opinion not playable because there's too many lands that ETB tapped and there's only five basic lands. The Tri lands ( Frontier Bivouac , etc.) are better for the manabase here then the Gates and I don't think you want to play both. Playing both means you have 25 lands of the 33 total lands that will always ETB tapped which is too many. Get this number down to 10 or less, ideally zero. For budget five colors my advice is play more basic lands and dual lands that have interaction with basic lands. The Tri lands/Wilds/Expanse should be the only lands that will always ETB tapped.


Example of a structure for a 38 land five color $40 manabase for your deck (20 green sources, 15 white, 15 blue, 15 black, 15 red):

  • 15x basic lands (6x Forest, 3x Plains, 2x Island, 2x Swamp, 2x Mountain)
  • Command Tower/Exotic Orchard
  • Cascading Cataracts
  • Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse
  • Unclaimed Territory
  • Ash Barrens
  • 5x Tri lands
  • 5x Battle lands
  • 5x less expensive Check lands
  • 2x utility lands

For a five color manabase you want at least 15 sources of each color and 20 of the primary color. The Tri lands are worth ETB tapped because the next turn they can tap to make one mana of three different colors which is good budget color fixing. More Forests than any other basic land because a Forest helps to cast a green land ramp spell or a green mana dork which help with color fixing for the other colors. You want to be able to cast green land ramp spells/mana dorks in the early game and having more Forests helps to do this.

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Hello again great mentor - I made an update to my Sliver Queen deck, and somehow lost all of the "show" and "hide" buttons in the accordion menu. I have no idea how I made that mistake...and am just facerolling on the keyboard. I'd appreciate any sort of assistance you could provide...but i'm wondering what did I delete? Warning: this is alot of code.

To be completely honest, I was already playing with an idea similar to this, maybe you could tell me how possible it would be? My idea involves using slivers as an indestructible mana base ( Sliver Hivelord Manaweft Sliver Gemhide Sliver ) while using Child of Alara as the commander to keep blowing up everyone’s lands. Then use my sliver land base to drop something like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or It That Betrays to just wreck everyone. I will be posting this up soon.

Couple of suggestions; I'd add Cryptolith Rite for an added Gemhide Sliver like ability. (take out Farseek ) I'd add Basal Sliver for mana ramp as well. I'd maybe take out Vanquisher's Banner and/or Phyrexian Arena for Dormant Sliver or Kindred Discovery for infinite draw combos with Sliver Queen . Leyline of Abundance is also good for ramp and to beef up your slivers.

i use Manaweft Sliver instead of Gemhide Sliver . only noncreature spells mainboard are Collected Company and Aether Vial . my land destruction deck isn't the typical ponza you see. it goes really heavy on land destruction spells, then beats down with Goblin Dark-Dwellers or Shivan Wumpus . or an Avalanche Riders

Slivers are tons of fun! Every time I've played with them as long as I was able to get Gemhide Sliver out and the opponent not spam board wipes it was basically an easy win.

I've never played with RG Land destruction before but I have seen a few decks floating around this site that look pretty wicked. I tend to be fascinated/tempted by the brews using shenanigans with Splinter .

Eu tenho jogadas padrão: sempre buscava o Legion e o Hivelord, mas agora adicionei o Morophon para jogar os patrões de graça; ajuda pra kct. Eu não costumo zicar de mana, e quando zica eu tento trazer o Manaweft Sliver ou o Gemhide Sliver pra mão. Por isso uso o Hivelord de comandante, dá muita versatilidade.

Tente pensar em uma ou duas jogadas padrão e como vai conseguir fazê-las, aí pensa no balanceamento de mana para facilitar essas jogadas - pra mim funcionou deixar umas Florestas porque sempre zicava de verde.
