Harmonic Sliver Discussion

Hi! First of all cool theme!
These are the cards I would put in and why:
Why are you not running Sliver Hive?? This card is a staple for slivers. I also think that your list lacks ways to actually hit face, Shifting Sliver should work perfectly with your gameplan. Maybe, instead of Sliver Queen you could run Sliver Hivelord, since he has an better effect overall. Sliver Legion is also nuts if you have a strong board. Harmonic Sliver is also a must have to handle enchantments or artefacts. For card draw I would play Dormant Sliver, if you have drawn enough with you slivers you can sac him to Acidic Sliver or Necrotic Sliver. Instead of Patriarch's Bidding I would play Pulmonic Sliver, more slivers ftw!! and last I would play Crypt Sliver over Sedge Sliver, you already have some "buff" slivers and the tap ability is faster than the mana ability.
Still gotta say cool deck! I would love to play against slivers some day (never encountered one)

jon_hill987, this deck aims at a turn 3-5 kill (with a lucky hand and flash/hulk + tutor even turn 2), so a mana rock for 2 or more mana really has to do A LOT, to justify a slot in the deck. For there's only the three moxes and lotus petal, of which only mox diamond could be added (but I have some concerns as for the consistency with my land Count). for cmc 1 there's only creatures that produce coloured mana, no artifacts. for cmc 2 it needs to be a Card that generates a lot of value like maybe Bloom Tender or the mana slivers (because they can act as removal with Harmonic Sliver as well). Chromatic Lantern is only an option because it doesn't just create one mana of my choice, but makes ALL lands produce all colours regardless of their land type being changed. everything else with 3 mana is simply too slow in here...I do like coalition relic, but only in control decks when I don't plan on going for the win so early.

I play a 5 colour combo deck (Combo Queen, but I think I have maybe 3-5 different cards in my real deck) and of course the biggest problem is to run into Blood Moon, Magus of the Moon and Back to Basics. I'm not talking about the possibility of Ruination because I have no response to that anyway and will have to prevent it with Gaddock Teeg.
My question is, what are the best ways to get rid of a Blood Moon when there's only red mana available and maybe one different colour from a mana dork?
Another method, although complicated, would be to use Imperial Recruiter to get Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, copy recruiter to find Elvish Spirit Guide and again to search for Reclamation Sage. That's the only other way I can imagine that would work without any other colour than red, but it takes multiple turns.
Do you know anything else that could work? Maybe something with alternative casting costs for removing enchantments? A cheap red creature that can kill a Magus when it comes into play ( Flametongue Kavu is a bit expensive for 3R and the recruiter can't get it)?
Often I have something to respond or at least one basic forest or mana dork to work with, but I don't want to have absolutely NO (tutorable or otherwise realistic) solution to a blood moon if it happens to catch me tapped out with only nonbasics on the board. Any help is appreciated!

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!

Trust me, you want magma sliver. I've swung for 200+ damage and cleared 3 opponents at once by tapping a Magma boosted sliver, the card's a win-con with the right board state.

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.
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.

CleverRuse For the Harmonic Sliver problem just run some "Grounders" like Darksteel Ingot and Darksteel Axe, ones obliviously better than the other but if you want more chance's to that effect then sure run the axe. Also i forgot one more Phyrexian Altar I know its not Ashnod's Altar but its just another mana fixer that you might want.
