Hey, consider adding more good ramp? The avg. CMC here is 4.5, that's very high without having a lot of ramp. Dinos can benefit from lots of ramp because most have high mana costs. Zacama is also nine mana.

Consider adding:

Saljen on Commander Slivers Budget

1 month ago

I see you have Gemhide Sliver but no Manaweft Sliver? Let me start by saying that these two mana slivers are the best two cards in your deck and you should run both. When these come out, your deck can just go bonkers. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that you should try to run even more of these effects. Cryptolith Rite and Song of Freyalise also give the same effect attached to an enchantment. Now, ramp isn't the only reason you want these cards. These cards are the primary pieces in your Commander's combos. Once your commander and a mana sliver are in play, you just need one more piece. Two cards can fit this last role, and I run them both in my Sliver deck. Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm. What happens is that when your Commander is in play and you can tap for at least 4-5 mana with your creatures, then you can use his ability to search for a 1-2 CMC sliver, play it, then up tap all 4-5 slivers. Now your mana base just grew, assuming you have haste (which you can search for first), and you can do it again until all your 1 CMC slivers are in play, each one gaining you more mana than the last. Then from there you can proceed to put every single sliver in your library directly into play unless some one can stop you. It creates an infinite combo where infinite is defined as the number of slivers in your deck. If you're going all out for Queen and Legion, then you'll want to make sure you've got this combo in your deck too. It's slivers 101.

Training Grounds is great with your commander. Makes the combo easier and just makes both abilities easier to play. Also works with Necrotic Sliver.

I've been working on my Sliver EDH list for years now, so it isn't exactly budget. But it started out that way. Here's a link if you're interested.. I'd really suggest taking a look at the mana base. My mana base is still pretty much fully budget and it reaches 5 colors a lot more easily than what you have here. You want to run all 10 tri-color lands, this really helps hitting your 5 colors. Then, there are many budget 5 color lands that help drastically. Consider Cascading Cataracts, Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Grand Coliseum, Mirrodin's Core, Path of Ancestry, Rupture Spire, Sliver Hive, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Transguild Promenade, and Unknown Shores. Not having 5 colors available will hurt you 10x more than having lands come into play tapped.

Crystal Quarry (You might want to save up for it), is a must-play. If you don't have the dosh, Grand Coliseum could work for a while.

Hey, you asked for my help. This is a well built budget Commander deck. Only $137 for a complete playable Commander deck is nice, good job.

Chromatic Lantern is down more than 60% in price (less than $5 now) since it's been revealed to be reprinted in Guilds of Ravnica. Lantern is now a budget Commander card, as it should be :) The prices haven't updated yet for this site, but if you add (GRN) to the end of Lantern in the text editor it will show up as the GRN version with the updated low price.


Your decklist is already really well done/streamlined, it's going to be difficult to make cuts without adding some additional price... Here's a list of cards to consider adding/cutting:

If these lands upgrades are too much then I think you're better off playing more basic lands then the three Guildgates, Barrens, River and Boneyard. More basic lands at least work better with the Bounce lands (Azorius Chancery, etc.).

Good luck with your deck.

replaced Grand Coliseum with Mirrodin's Core, because the need to reduce tapped lands is too great, and I can still work in the colors.

Removed the filter lands for now, will add those if I find that the Guild Karoos are still a nuisance. They have been a nuisance "in combination with" the other tapped lands and colorless lands that I see all too often. If I change those lands first, then maybe the Karoos are actually fine in this list, since they pay you back for coming in tapped AND bouncing another land.

So, in total:

-1 Diabolic Tutor, -1 Jungle Hollow, -1 Blossoming Sands, -1 Scoured Barrens, -1 Grim Backwoods, -1 Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree, -1 Rogue's Passage,

+1 Diabolic Intent, +1 City of Brass, +1 Grand Coliseum, +1 Godless Shrine, +1 Forest, +1 Plains, +1 Swamp,

These changes should help the deck work faster to assembling the ultimate toolbox strategy.

I mean for Eldrazi Displacer, the dual-painlands, HOU pain lands, and a couple 5 color painlands lands are all untapped colored mana producers that can also produce colorless, if you want.

The ones for this deck are as follows: Adarkar Wastes, Underground River, Caves of Koilos, Shefet Dunes, Ipnu Rivulet, Ifnir Deadlands, Grand Coliseum (not untapped sadly), and Tarnished Citadel
