Harmonic Sliver Discussion

Frenetic Sliver is cool, but unfortunately is inconsistent. That alone bars it from being considered a viable competitive option. But is it cool? Heck yeah. It does have some awesome synergy with slivers that have ETB effects like Harmonic Sliver . Dregscape Sliver leaves me a bit apprehensive - because in my opinion I think it's only good for one really big play after your graveyard is filled up with a bunch of hivelings. If you can't kill the table on that turn, then best case scenario you'll bring back specific slivers and get an infinite combo to seal the win. Worst, and probably most likely scenario(s): someone will use some graveyard hate (at least in my meta) or someone will remove one key Sliver ( Gemhide , Queen , or Basal ) preventing an infinite combo from going off. So instead you make some big play and deal a bunch of combat damage - killing off some of the table but not all. Then all or some of those resources are exiled and you're in a relatively decent position.
Having to rely on Frenetic 's ability to avoid the Exile effect of Dregscape is just too unpredictable for any competitive Sliver deck. But, it's very fun in a more casual deck, and i'd honestly recommend it - seems like it'd be a blast to flip coins and have the table be like "Is it going to get exiled?!".

lil_cheez Thank you for the suggestion! I hadn't even considered that Aura Shards isn't Modern legal. Harmonic Sliver is indeed a legal, way more budget friendly suggestion. I'm putting it in immediately. Thanks! And yeah my version started off as a budget deck, but I had such a blast playing this deck I kept upgrading it with the lands and the Fauna Shaman . If you cut those it's an incredibly budget friendly deck!

Love the concept! I'd totally play this, but my version would be even more budget for casual play.
Aura shards is not modern-legal so if you want to keep that hub maybe Harmonic Sliver will do.

Another thing I would maybe suggest, is that because your mana reliance is a little heavier on green, you probably want to reflect that a little more in your mana base. Also, unless your meta doesn't play tribal decks, be wary of Coat of Arms as this can benefit your opponents. Maybe a Door of Destinies could be more of a safe creature buff?
Also, a word of warning, be wary of Harmonic Sliver , this is a must trigger, and if you don't have Darksteel Ingot out and there is no other valid targets, you may be blowing your own stuff up. Having an Aura Shards may be a good addition because of that movely word... May. I'm sure you have already thought of this, but I learnt this one the hard way lol.

To start with, your deck is false. Secondly I would remove Brood Sliver for Magus of the Moon to help with your prison strategy, Remove Crystalline Sliver for Blood Moon , Harmonic Sliver for Back to Basics , and lastly remove The First Sliver for Hazoret the Fervent . I would also look to add more sweepers, counterspells and lands.

I'd suggest moving Harmonic Sliver and Spellskite to the sideboard and replacing them with something else because it will sometimes be useless. Tech cards are amazing in certain situations, but they are better in the sideboard so you don't draw useless cards game 1.

Hi Strangelove, +1 for your list too!
This has definitely been tuned for a more casual play group. My group usually avoids combos, particularly infinite ones. But those are some very interesting combinations that I hadn't really noticed/ turned my attention to; I would definitely experiment with them in a more competitive meta. It just depends on the play group and what they're ok with.
I love Firewake Sliver and I really didn't notice the haste ability. I was too focused on the pay (1) ability, which I was trying to avoid haha. This will probably be an include- I want as much haste as possible. Mindlash Sliver is great, though in my group, as I wrote in the guide, is not too fond of hand disruption. Though in any other situation, it would be a definitely added in. Your suggestion of sac slivers and Dormant Sliver and Harmonic Sliver is an interesting idea I would like to actually test. I was worried about doing this because of consistency issues in seeing both a sac outlet + one of these slivers, because on their own these slivers and sac slivers don't really serve the purpose of this deck. Though, I've definitely thought of using Darkheart Sliver to capitalise on board-wipes; however I've been trying to avoid wipes entirely.
I'm testing the deck with more ramp and hope to add more soon!
Sometimes its super annoying to flip through the whole deck, though for me it feels very rewarding to potentially play 3 pieces of power in 1 turn. I guess that's just the gimmick of the deck. It's hilarious seeing my friends' faces when this happens.
I like reclamation, reconnaissance and summoner's pact, but I generally avoid cheap non-sliver spells. Instead of reclamation, I'll be trying to get recursion with my land base, e.g. Volrath's Stronghold and I'm testing Memorial to Folly and Mortuary Mire .
However, in future I would like to add more tutors to increase the consistency of the deck. Thus, Summoner's Pact would be a good include. Once I increase the consistency of the deck more, I'll go for more 1 cmc non-slivers, as you've suggested. This can be achieved by tutors or cards that reorganise the top of the library, e.g. Sylvan Library , Sensei's Divining Top or Scroll Rack . However, right now, I'm sticking to the current build in hopes of testing cards such as:
This'll be the first phase of my testing before I go more into tutors and ramp.
- And yeh, slivers are definitely going to be hated, no matter how you put it haha. I think in my play group, one which is not that used to slivers, they are a bit more kind.
Help was much appreciated! Glhf to you too,
