For once i'm very impressed! Did you need a copy of Hivestone Etc? Also Homing Sliver is good to tutor up a sliver (or nephilim with arcane adaptation)

But that curve though... A thing of beauty, it brings a tear to my eye.

phycomizard ALSO I forgot about the end of your comment, sorry! The Hivelord, Constricting, Megantic and Homing Sliver all feel kind of unnecessary. They cost too much and are more of a flavor thing than anything else. Homing Sliver I actually almost put in, but didn't think it was worth the space. Not only do I have to pay 3CMC to play it on T2/T3, but I also have to pay whatever mana cost for the sliver I end up choosing as well. The only thing I saw it worthy of is some sort of thing like I use the slivercycle, find a Virulent Sliver and then either paying the mana cost before combat OR Aether Vial ing in the Virulent after going to combat, swinging (maybe with everything depending on board status for both myself and the opponent) with all my slivers and then doing poison counters like that for a potential (but unlikely) on T3 win, unless I have lke 2 or 3 Predatory Sliver s or Sinew Sliver s out to buff one another. PLUS at that point, if I'm going for an infect win I might as well add in buffs like Blossoming Defense or Distortion Strike or like Groundswell or something to buff them up, but for decks like Affinity I'm sure they'll have either answers or wouldn't let something just go unblocked if I have one or more Virulent Sliver s sitting on board.

Manaweft Sliver is a lot better than Birds of Paradise becuase it gives all your slivers the ability to tap for mana, and Virulent Sliver is insanly good no matter what, making games shorter, Shifting Sliver and Crystalline Sliver are just overpowered, Ancient Ziggurat and Unclaimed Territory are really good lands, maybe include a Door of Destinies and a Beastmaster Ascension too. Also if i were you id include some larger slivers for some good late game boosts, like Megantic Sliver or Constricting Sliver , also either a Sliver Overlord or a Homing Sliver to get what slivers you need

First off thanks for the advice. I have been play mtg on and off for around 5 years, but have just now thought about competitive play. I just don't like making decks not themed some way lol. Aether Vial is a good idea didn't know it was a thing lol. Ancient Ziggurat I don't like that it wont help bring out my artifacts I agree with the legendary creatures (just didn't think about it), I cut them down to 1 each cause i can always use Homing Sliver to find them, Psionic Sliver is rather costly but i like it for cards like Ghostly Prison

Hey Slayroth,

How often and in what way do you use it (Homing Sliver) is it used?

So at first glance it's fairly easy to miss the value in this little guy. To answer your question I never ever cast this Sliver. I don't see it as creature, but as an instant speed: : Discard this card, search your library for target sliver and put it into your hand. It's a Gemhide/Crystalline/Heart Sliver on demand. It's great because you can use this Sliver to tutor while not having to have your commander on the field (in case you don't have access to ). Yes, it's a one time tutor for the exact answer you need at the time. At least, that's my two cents. Thoughts?

I would like to ask you some stuff about a specific card that im hestitating to put in my own sliver deck for quite some time now. Homing Sliver. How often and in what way do you use it/ is it used? I have the feeling I could undervalue the card and don't see how good it actually is. Paying 3 mana to play it and then paying 3 more mana and another sliver from your hand for a single tutor sounds so slow in my mind. Or is it more often used as a one time tutor directly from the hand with its own slivercycling?

Forgot to add the changes that I made with my mentor. We added 2x Manaweft Sliver, added 2x Aether Vials, and removed the dead weight cards (Fungus Sliver), added more Striking Sliver, and more Galerider Sliver to get the fast aggro in. Switched Thorncaster Sliver to sideboard to try in the Homing Sliver. Thanks itachi45!

Looks like fun. But what this deck could really use are Manaweft Sliver, Homing Sliver, and Collected Company. Adding in those 3 cards in some kind of combination could really take this deck over the top!
