Gemhide Sliver Discussion

For anyone looking for budget lands, the Battlefield Forge set of lands is a lot easier to get your hands on, and the tri-color tapped lands such as Arcane Sanctum are even cheaper than that..!

Virulent Sliver can be added for an additional win-con, and works particularly well with other slivers like Shifting Sliver and Brood Sliver.

Ice Cave seems to be staple for any 5-color deck, and particularly here since both Root Sliver and Quick Sliver work perfectly with it. It also helps avoid those board-wipes after a Primal Surge, since all of your slivers will have both haste and the ability to tap for any color of mana, so it gives you the perfect ability to counter any threats.

Cryptolith Rite is a third Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver, and one that's not taken care of with Doom Blade and such. If you want to be a little more mana stability, Druids' Repository is a card I'm fond of as well, but might not fit this deck perfectly as the 2 green might be too much for too little here.

Tranquil Grove is a solid answer for many decks and should be in any deck with green, but without reliance on enchantments.

One with Nature is much more relevant in 60 card decks where you can stack Galerider Sliver and Winged Sliver, but many people don't seem to know of this card and I personally very much enjoy it as it's budget mana ramp+fix, plus being a permanent is always a plus in my eyes, so I thought I'd throw it in here!

And you dont need to:) basic lands could work just fine.

You could use some duel lands and cards like Mana Confluence and Ancient Ziggurat aren't that expensife.

You dont need Door of Destinies instead use Coat of Arms

i use Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial not only because there great cards, but the creatures play with it cant be counterd.

Swan Song is a good replacement for your sourcery's

You dont need 2 extra Gemhide Sliver add some extra +1+1 sliver like Sinew Sliver at least 4.

Another good card against blue controll would be Diffusion Sliver.

Shadow Sliver is good but i would swap them out for an extra Galerider Sliver and Striking Sliver Also you need 2 Sliver Hivelord angainst burn and bordwipe.

I actualy dont need the Sliver Legion its in basic just a coat of arms but i have them.

I dont know if you are from europe, but if you are the cards you need go realy cheap on Magic Card market.

Hi, good start but I'd take out some slivers to make room for more Vials.
Also, most Sliver deck users would probably change this way:

Hope this helps :)

I would load up on Harmonic Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Sinew Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Gemhide Sliver ...and Sliver Hivelord is also very powerful. I would cut Toxin Sliver, Spined Sliver, Horned Sliver, and Darkheart Sliver. If you have the money 4x Aether Vial is a bit of an investment, but they go in any Modern aggro deck not just Slivers. Good luck!

3InchMeatMonster, welcome to the hive. I'd be glad to answer your question. I just want to start off saying that Paradox Engine is incredibly good for Slivers because when combined with Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver + Heart Sliver you can effectively play your entire deck and end the game. Here's a play by play of a game ending scenario:

Turn 4 -

  • With 4 lands, Gemhide Sliver, and Heart Sliver in play (all untapped), you tap both creatures for , and 3 lands to play Paradox Engine.
  • Then with a Galerider Sliver and Sol Ring in hand, you tap your 1 remaining land for and play the sliver. Both Gemhide Sliver and Heart Sliver untap.
  • You only have a Sol Ring left in hand. You tap all 3 slivers for and use the to pay for the Sol Ring. It comes into play, and all your slivers untap, and you have floating. You then tap all mana sources (all 3 slivers, and the sol ring) to pay for Sliver Overlord to come into play, and you have floating. All your slivers untap, as well as Sol Ring.
  • Now, with 4 slivers in play, and floating, you tap all slivers and the sol ring for . You pay (using the floating, and from the recently tapped Sol Ring)to tutor for any sliver that costs 5 or less. I'd recommend Dormant Sliver. It comes into play, all slivers and artifacts untap, you draw a card, and you still have floating. Rinse, wash, repeat.
  • tl:dr - with Paradox Engine+Manaweft Sliver+Heart Sliver you play all your slivers, draw alot of cards, and kill everything.

    A few suggestions:

    Your biggest problem is Mana Fixing to get all the colors you need especially in order to get Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Overlord

    For this I would definitely include a Rupture Spire and Ancient Ziggurat for lands to start. I would also definitely include a Chromatic Lantern and Armillary Sphere. In addition to these I would also include 4 Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver.

    As for slivers I would up the Winged Sliver to 4 or take them out entirely and replace them with Galerider Sliver for one less mana. In addition to these you might want to add Mesmeric Sliver for some good control. Finally I would also add some "pump up" slivers to help make them more survivable. You could choose from Predatory Sliver, Muscle Sliver, or Sinew Sliver, just to name a few.

    As a final word I would include more playsets (Sets of 4 cards) for more consistency in the deck as opposed to all the different cards. This is just a suggestion. Build the deck to your playstyle

    Hope this helps

    Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a solid option over Howling Mine, to not also give all your opponents cards. Cryptolith Rite is a solid upgrade over Gift of Paradise I think, its basically another Gemhide Sliver. Which I now see isn't in the list, and dearly should be! Rite, Manaweft, and Gemhide give you a lot of mana flexibility.

    zephramtripp on those crazy slivers...

    There are several Sliver I think your amiss in dismissing:

    Bonescythe Sliver, for cheap double strike.
    Brood Sliver, for massive Sliver production.
    Harmonic Sliver, for artifact/enchantment removal.
    Heart Sliver, for cheap haste.
    Magma Sliver, for massive gains.
    Manaweft Sliver, as a backup Gemhide Sliver.
    Necrotic Sliver, to turn every Sliver into a Vindicate.
    Shifting Sliver, to make your team unblockable.
    Sinew Sliver, as another Muscle Sliver.
    Virulent Sliver, to only have to deal ten, not 40.
    Winged Sliver, for more flying.

    Other Slivers you might consider: Basal Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, Essence Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Horned Sliver, Spined Sliver, Spitting Sliver, Lymph Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Opaline Sliver, Psionic Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Screeching Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord, Synapse Sliver, Synchronous Sliver, and Syphon Sliver.

    Tribal stuff:
    Cavern of Souls, obviously.
    Descendants' Path, if you want to go heavy tribal.
    Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
    Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
    Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
    Belbe's Portal
    Urza's Incubator
    Patriarch's Bidding
