Non-Linear on All Mana Sliver Artifact V4.0

1 week ago

@Verbatiam This is more helpful than you could know, and I am very appreciative of your feedback and suggestions. I do plan on keeping the artifact element of my slivers, I plan on adding other tribal enchantments/artifacts such as Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Heartstone, Helm of the Host, and Herald's Horn. Saheeli Rai is going to stay and the other is probably going to be replaced with Xenagos, the Reveler.

I am also planning on adding Training Grounds, Kindred Discovery, and some signets.

You make an excellent point with the removal and counters, I have a Dash Hopes and Despise because of their convienience. I will replace those with more blue counters and a Crib Swap.

I have already removed the cat for a Manaweft Sliver and will probably trade my Sliver Construct for another sliver card in my folder.

Slivers is my pet archtype so appologies if I go a little overboard with this comment

Overall pretty good, got most of the good ones. I'd cut Metallic Sliver and Sliver Construct as they dont actually add anything to your sliver stradedgy aside from mooching off of your other slivers. I'd replace them with Manaweft Sliver and Bonescythe Sliver I'm assuming their is budget concerns, otherwise Sliver Sliver Queen and Sliver Legion would be auto includes
To be honest, cut all of your instants, they either are innefficient or wont do what you want e.g. Lightning Bolt doesn't kill much in commander and Dash Hopes almost never counters a spell, and when it does it means you would have rathered a card that did damage. Some potential good cards in each caatagorie you have represented are:

Countermagic

-Swan Song

-Counterspell

-Out of Bounds

Removal

-Swords to Plowshares

-Crib Swap

-Beast Within

also one card thats really win more with slivers is Kindred Summons

I like your socereies more, some that I'd cut are Hive Stirrings because similarly to Metallic sliver they do actually contribute to slivers plans, Severed Strands is sorcery speed removal that loses you a sliver (which is something you really don't want to do in slivers), and Divest because single target hand hate just makes you enemies in commander and rarely hits anything thats worth that. Some good includes in this area are Kindred Dominance and Cultivate/Kodama's Reach
I combined these catagories because they speak to an overall subtheme you seem to have, both artifacts and the cat combo (Saheeli Rai and Felidar Guardian). Honestly I dont think there are enough artifacts to justify two artifact planeswalkers, and neither is really syenergistic with your deck I'd cut both and Guardian, if you want a Planeswalker I'd reccomend Xenagos, the Reveler as he both ramps and protects himself. If you want a two card combo I'd reccomend Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Pestermite has they're more useful outside of the combo.

On the topic of Artifacts they can be really useful in a budget 5 colour deck as they work with whatever colours you happend to have out. Most of your artifacts are good, I'd just cut Hedron Archive and Tamiyo's Journal, the former because you really need coloured mana and the latter because its a really slow tutor and not very good source of cards. I'd recommend adding Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, and Heartstone (Heartstone is especially good). If you find more space in the deck I'd also recommend signets for your major colours as they can convert 1 colour that you dont need to 2 that you do.

This section is really good, only card I dislike is Dictate of Karametra because it benefits your opponents as well in a deck where you don't really break parity on it (you opponents get as much benefit as you) and it costs double green. There are some really good enchantments you can run, highlights are Kindred Discovery, Unnatural Selection, and Training Grounds (again, decreasing the cost of your commanders abilities is insanly good)

All in all I really love the deck and it fills me with nostalga for my old Sliver deck (it was my first ever commander deck). Hope some of this helps and I'd be happy to talk about what I've said more (hope this isn't way to much)

Well the first and main combo that you need to know about for Sliver combos is this:

Intruder Alarm or Paradox Engine + Gemhide Sliver or Manaweft Sliver or Cryptolith Rite + Sliver Overlord = every single sliver in your deck is now in play. How it works, is you use your other slivers to tap for at least 5 mana putting 5 in your pool, use Sliver Overlords search ability to search out a 1 CMC Sliver and put it into play, netting 1 positive mana and untapping all of your slivers. Do this for all your 1 CMC slivers, then all your 2 CMC slivers, and you should end out with enough spare mana to play every single sliver in your deck. Training Grounds makes this combo even easier to achieve.

A little tip, for when you don't have the full combo but have Sliver Overlord in play, always search out Crystalline Sliver first to keep your slivers safe. Sliver Hivelord is a good second option. Once both are in play, you're free to do pretty much what ever you want without threat of losing your army of slivers.

I run a Sliver Overlord Commander list and my deck has a focus on combos. Feel free to check it out for some tips. My mana base is super budget, so you can fill out your 5 color mana base easily. Run all 5x Vivid lands, all 10x Tri-colored lands, 1 of each basic land, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds, then there are enough 5 color lands to get you to 37.

Try a Paradox Engine when you have Sliver Overlord out. Any time you play down a new creature, all of your creatures untap. In mine, I run land hate cards like Armageddon and Catastrophe since I usually have a Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver out. Its fun to watch the opponent squirm when they can't play anymore spells for a few turns.

My advice is to stick with a White and Green deck, you have the base slivers there like Sinew Sliver, Muscle Sliver, Brood Sliver, Horned Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver, Gemhide Sliver, Ward Sliver, Might Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, Essence Sliver and Sidewinder Sliver there, plus some more but these are the greatest ones for me. With them you can splash more colors to use Crystalline Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Sliver Queen, Sliver Legion, Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hivelord, which are the ones with most value in my opinion outside Selesnya colors, although there are some good ones too in Blue and Red. Metallic Sliver is a good and cheap body but with no abilities of its own. Also get non-creatures spells that allow you to draw, tutor or fix your hand/deck for more creatures, as well as things to protect said creatures from boardwipes and individual kill spells. Check my sliver deck to get a more accurate idea of what I'm saying please Merciless Aliens

Saljen on Commander Slivers Budget

I see you have Gemhide Sliver but no Manaweft Sliver? Let me start by saying that these two mana slivers are the best two cards in your deck and you should run both. When these come out, your deck can just go bonkers. In fact, I'd go as far as saying that you should try to run even more of these effects. Cryptolith Rite and Song of Freyalise also give the same effect attached to an enchantment. Now, ramp isn't the only reason you want these cards. These cards are the primary pieces in your Commander's combos. Once your commander and a mana sliver are in play, you just need one more piece. Two cards can fit this last role, and I run them both in my Sliver deck. Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm. What happens is that when your Commander is in play and you can tap for at least 4-5 mana with your creatures, then you can use his ability to search for a 1-2 CMC sliver, play it, then up tap all 4-5 slivers. Now your mana base just grew, assuming you have haste (which you can search for first), and you can do it again until all your 1 CMC slivers are in play, each one gaining you more mana than the last. Then from there you can proceed to put every single sliver in your library directly into play unless some one can stop you. It creates an infinite combo where infinite is defined as the number of slivers in your deck. If you're going all out for Queen and Legion, then you'll want to make sure you've got this combo in your deck too. It's slivers 101.

Training Grounds is great with your commander. Makes the combo easier and just makes both abilities easier to play. Also works with Necrotic Sliver.

I've been working on my Sliver EDH list for years now, so it isn't exactly budget. But it started out that way. Here's a link if you're interested.. I'd really suggest taking a look at the mana base. My mana base is still pretty much fully budget and it reaches 5 colors a lot more easily than what you have here. You want to run all 10 tri-color lands, this really helps hitting your 5 colors. Then, there are many budget 5 color lands that help drastically. Consider Cascading Cataracts, Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Grand Coliseum, Mirrodin's Core, Path of Ancestry, Rupture Spire, Sliver Hive, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Transguild Promenade, and Unknown Shores. Not having 5 colors available will hurt you 10x more than having lands come into play tapped.

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!
