Heart Sliver Discussion

multimedia on newbie sliver EDH

Hey, as a starting point for a budget Slivers deck this looks good.

My advice to make the deck more competitive includes four main suggestions: upgrade the Slivers, upgrade the manabase, take more advantage of indestructible and being able to within reason because of five colors play any budget supporting spell in Magic.

If this advice is helpful than I have more advice about upgrading the manabase, taking more advantage of indestructible and good support spells. Would you like me to continue with more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Ah, gotcha. I simply misinterpreted your wants for the deck. Well, that'll bring us in an entirely different direction...so i'm sure you're already familiar with most of the staples for Overlord which are Amoeboid Changeling and Unnatural Selection. However most of his staples are other slivers. He's mostly just a toolbox. More on that later. So, what are other spells that are staples, but aren't slivers?

Hey, LVL_666 My goal with the Sliver deck was to have a highly synergystic creature combo deck that wins by attacking with creatures for obscene, unblockable, sliver damage. This will be done by amassing a steady stream of creatures, stealing my opponents creatures, and playing enough mana ramp/fixing to ensure early access to my commander, Sliver Overlord. On my immediate buy list is Heart Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, and Gemhide Sliver. These are clearly keystones. Any advice or general knowledge you care to impart? I am here to learn!

LVL_666 on Sliver EDH tech

KingMathoro: Oh you!

Ahem. So lets break down your question here, and i'll get right to answering it as best as I can:

"Im looking at the possibility of building a Sliver EDH deck (please dont hate). I dont know exactly what would be good tech for the deck."

So, when building a Sliver EDH deck know this: You are going . You have no other choice as all legendary slivers are 5 color. This is relevant only because you have to figure out the most expensive part of your deck which will be your landbase. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Lets look at your tech options:

  1. Sliver Overlord is currently the most popular Sliver Commander/General, also it is the control oriented Sliver commander. If you pilot him, you should include cards that capitalize on it's second ability (i.e. Amoeboid Changeling and/or Unnatural Selection). Additionally, you would use cards that slow down the game as you would play a more attrition based strategy. I actually run this Commander, but I chose to build a midrage deck- the more "traditional" magic deck. Overlord works well in midrange as well as control, but it all depends on what appeals to you - do you want to lock down the game while you steadily populate the battlefield or do you want to ramp up and have a more flexible build that can win through different strategies?

  2. Sliver Queen is the General for those who desire a combo win strategy. When the beautiful and incredible queen was first introduced, she was quickly paired with Heartstone + Ashnod's Altar. Such a lovely infinite sliver combo it was. But now, you have even more options in the form of Mana Echoes, Training Grounds or Basal Sliver + Heart Sliver + Gemhide Sliver. You get the idea. The best part however, is that Queen is so dynamic and incredible that she has been used as a general for non-sliver builds like superfriends. But i'm getting off track here. Queen decks are definitely the most competitive builds when it comes to Sliver EDH due to her being a combo piece herself, and thanks to the command zone you will always have ready access to her. On top of that, she makes blockers for next to no mana. There's a good reason why she's on the reserved list.

  3. Now, certainly last but definitely not least you have both Sliver Legion and Sliver Hivelord making up the aggro based strats for Sliver EDH. These Generals may be simple, but they are incredibly powerful. The strategy would be rather simple with these two, as you would run alot of cards that ramp up the damage like Shared Animosity, Rancor etc. Quick little plays that add up quickly over time. If you have Sliver Hivelord in play, you could run alot more mass destruction. Oh, and true fact here: I a player outright scooped when I played Sliver Hivelord + Crystalline Sliver. Since you're running 5 color, you'll have access to all instance of them! Even better, look at the synergy between Ghostflame Sliver + All Is Dust. The slivers thought of everything at some point.

So really, that's a high level generalization of what directions you can go in when it comes to building a Sliver EDH deck. Please, let me know if you have questions as I'm always happy talk about Slivers.

M4RK0G91, I realize I never actually responded to your other thought:

"Oh, i wanted to ask you one thing: i know this is a EDH build, but i wanted your opinion about the Tiny Leader format. If you would ever build a TL sliver deck, what colors you would choose?"

I uh...realize this is like...months late so sorry about that. So what's my opinion of the Tiny Leader format? Well, I don't have a TL deck, nor have I played the format BUT the idea I have of the format is alot constant quick and cheap plays that over time add up and create interesting combos and synergies. I can see why you would consider creating a Sliver deck for that format. The only problem is that you won't have any big "Haymakers" if you will. Being restricted to CMC 3 seems like a real big challenge.

So, what colors would I choose to build a TL deck? Hmm....well lets assume I want to build a TL Sliver deck. What would be the ideal commander for me? Animar, Soul of Elements is a strong contender in my book. His secondary ability at the very least helps you cast more Slivers. On top of that, his color identity gives you access to Gemhide Sliver + Heart Sliver, and Venom + Striking Sliver. Additionally, i'd drop in Muscle Sliver + Predatory Sliver. So if it wasn't evident from all the previous card choices and synergies I pointed out, i'd make an aggro deck. Maybe call it "Animar, Soul of the Hive" or something like that.

Yeah. Sorry about the super late response. Thanks again for commenting!

I dunno, but Hive Stirrings always seemed good to me. If you go beyond /,you could run things like Winged Sliver, Heart Sliver and one of my pet cards (it just looks so cool!) Frenzy Sliver.

SaltySpecula, you're right! I totally forgot about the left over from each use of the Queen's ability. For some reason, I was thinking of: Sliver Queen + Mana Echoes(or Basal Sliver) + Gemhide Sliver + Heart Sliver.

Paradox Engine will work just fine. It's got amazing synergy with slivers, and given the right set up (a mana producing and a haste sliver) you can play your entire deck in one turn. I'd definitely say it'd be a must include.
