Kindred Boon Discussion

I played plenty of games with sliver overlord you just tutor up your best slivers. But if you keep getting blown out by sweepers play stuff like Basal Sliver or Sliver Hivelord. Theres also Kindred Boon. Theres no reason to be getting blown out by boardwipes in slivers. But some people would rather play a deck that plays differently every game then one that has a slightly higher chance of getting the win. Also slivers are really good at rebuilding a board state especially if you use The First Sliver in the command zone

The problem with Jegantha is that it does next to nothing. It is the worst companion of the bunch because the payoff and the restriction are way too imbalanced. If you get to those 5 mana, you are better off casting Hivelord/Queen/Overlord/Legion/The first sliver.

seshiro_of_the_orochi - Thanks for the suggestions. I really like the Call to the Kindred and Kindred Summons a lot. It's cards like those, I'm looking for. The Kindred Boon didn't fit the bill, but you might have been thinking of another card at the time. Again, thanks for the suggestions!

I love a player who goes for the flavor win, but I also feel like you could do more to really focus the mechanical identity of your deck.
Cats are associated strongly with equipment, which Ajani plays into with +1/+1 counters, which are also good for beefing up one's creatures. The issue with that is you essentially have 54 deck slots to split between creatures, equipment, ramp, removal, and card draw.
You could also just do tribal. Though cats do not have many lords (the only one you don't have is Regal Caracal), general tribal cards such as Herald's Horn, Adaptive Automaton, Shared Animosity, the Kindred cycle (Kindred Boon, Kindred Summons, and Kindred Charge), Metallic Mimic, Icon of Ancestry, Door of Destinies, Steely Resolve, Obelisk of Urd, or Vanquisher's Banner could serve you well.
You could go more towards Ajani's +1 counter theme, but most of the payoffs for that are non-cat. That said, there are some good noncreature options: Curse of Stalked Prey, Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Curse of Predation, Hindervines, Inspiring Call, and Mayael's Aria and other power-related payoffs.

xaarvaxus I'll probably make some changes in regard to your land suggestions. There are definitely other U/W and G/U lands I could add, such as the beta duals as well as shock lands and fetch lands. I don't think it is so much of a problem that I neeeeeed to add more blue mana sources, because if worst comes to worst I can just put out morophon and name unicorn, and thus not have to pay any blue mana. It seems a shame to change my mana base too much to accommodate my one blue spell, but really there isn't much harm in adding a Krosan verge and maybe a Hallowed Fountain.
In regard to your other suggestions I struggle more with board wipes than targeted removal, because who is going to waste a Swords to Plowshares on a Revered Unicorn , so hexproof is slightly pointless in my eyes. Currently Kindred Boon is what is helping me against board wipes, but I can't help but feel there is a better way to do it out there.
Icon of Ancestry is definitely a flavorful tribal card, but it seems unconventional for a deck with 2 main creature types that often have mana costs of 2 or 3. They aren't really worth paying 3 mana to search the top 3 cards for.
Yes, Cathars' Crusade would probably, actually you know what, it would be really good, I just don't know what to switch out for it. Perhaps Door of Destinies accomplishes the same goal but to a lesser extent?

@Canamex Not really. The only issue where it hurts not to have low CMC creatures is if they remove all your land and creatures at the same time. Like with Jokulhaups , but this rarely happens and usually your opponents will be in the same boat with you.
1 CMC creatures I'd only run if they're ridiculously impressive or have an effect that can't be gotten from a bigger creature. For example I wouldn't run Dauntless Bodyguard , because if you play them first they're practically a 2/1 with nothing special about them. Instead I'd run Changeling Outcast over him as you would have an unblockable knight you could dump all your equipment on. If the indestructibility really matters to you I'd run Kindred Boon instead, but that might be a better card to swap out over Knights' Charge . The indestructibility would make it harder to wipe your creatures off the board after all.

I'd consider another 1-3 pieces of wrath protection since it tends to be Edgar's biggest weakness.
are some excellent choices.
Make a Stand
are a little less powerful but they'll do the job too if you're on a budget. You could also use
, if they're in your budget.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!
