Mindlash Sliver Discussion
3 weeks ago
Those are some interesting thoughts. I haven't thought about Screeching Sliver or Mindlash Sliver so thank you for those ideas! I don't think I will be taking out Crystalline Sliver though. The Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies are rather interesting thoughts as well that I will take into consideration.
First off I need to say, may the hive live on forever! Secondly I must say your recommendations seem to be more of an aggro focus than I am looking for. I like aggro but I feel like I have enough already seeing that is how I mainly win. And I like having Overlord as the commander purely for the tutor ability if nothing else. Although I actually Like the idea of maybe including some infect/poisonous. I used to run Virulent Sliver and Triumph of the Hordes and Firewake Sliver in the deck but took them out for reasons I cannot remember. So I will certainly have to reconsider putting them back in the deck. As for your other thoughts I will have to take an in depth look to see if they can be beneficial long term. Would you potentially have any other thoughts on a non-combat based victory maybe with shocking someone to death or what have you?
Lastly I must say thanks to both of you for offering your advice. I really appreciate it!

And I'm reaching here but maybe you could find a way to use Plague Sliver? It would be hilarious if a sliver deck killed opponents with this. Maybe give people Hivestone? Like I said I'm reaching with this one, much more likely to backfire...
Possible removals include Amoeboid Changeling, Crystalline Sliver OR any sliver that targets a sliver, and effects which you already get from another source like +1/+1. and really I think a Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, and Sliver Legion is probably enough buffing.
May want to also consider more reanimation with all the sacrifice I suggested.

It looks super-fun! I might try to fit in Gemhide Sliver as another way to tap Slivers for Mana and to have more Turn-2 Ramp options. Also, maybe try some way to sacrifice Dormant Sliver for those times when you are forced to go on the attack, perhaps Basal Sliver to get you the for Door to Nothingness or even Necrotic Sliver if you want to be slightly more competitive, there are always targets for it! Maybe even Mindlash Sliver for another 1-drop that can help take them off their own discard, artifact removal, or the more uncommon counterspells you sometimes run across in Modern! Really looks like a fun idea, I look forward to seeing what kind of results you get with it, kind-of want to sleeve it up myself for the next Modern night at my LGS!

you could maybe try a Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Mindlash Sliver + Ashes of the Fallen (Name Knights).
i am a Haakon player and i used to run it.Try it out.You basically lock your opponent from drawing,since you can reanimate the Sliver countless times and sac it on you opponents draw step.
so Only instants can be played.
Thought you might like the idea.+1.

i really need to add an explanation for the why some cards are in there.
Haakon+Ashes makes everyting summonable so:
Death Cultist is my finsiher by summoning/sacing many times
Mindlash Sliver is a lockdown since i can summon/sac many times,empty the hand and keep it empty(i can activate on draw step of opponent).
Yeah a "REAL" finisher is nowhere to be seen so yeah some lords would be nice.
Still not 100% on the Collective Brutality train it has 0 value if milled.
Thanks for the time to check it out.

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.
The Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus won't come back because Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker says to return the creature card; they are land cards regardless of what they were on the battlefield. I recommend replacing them with Reliquary Tower and notably Winding Canyons. With all the ways of getting mana on others' turns you can use it quite effectively. Other lands you should consider include: Volrath's Stronghold, Crypt of Agadeem, Westvale Abbey Flip, High Market, Lake of the Dead, Vesuva Maze of Ith and Wasteland (instead of Tectonic Edge.)
Glistening Oil seems a little out of place. Are you using it to make your larger creatures small enough to be returned? If not then you have no reason to play it. If so then you should cut it because there are much better options. You could use Fevered Convulsions to achieve the same thing faster despite the mana investment (and you can use it on enemy creatures.) However, I recommend Sorceress Queen instead, for not only serving the same purpose but also being more versatile and being a creature with power 0 it fits very well.
I don't like Kiku, Night's Flower here because it cant answer anything immediately with summoning sickness and is far less efficient (and fast) than your already insane amount of removal. I recommend replacing it with Zulaport Cutthroat as another Blood Artist. You can also add Falkenrath Noble
At first glance AEther Vial looks really good considering all the 2 and 3 drops. but after thinking about it I realized that there is a far better option you can use: Vedalken Orrery. You may have to spend more mana but you can use it multiple times every every turn rather than once each turn rotation once you get an altar out.
Other cards you could consider are: Marionette Master, Summoner's Egg, Triskelion, Triskelavus, Mesmeric Fiend, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Noxious Toad, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Dutiful Attendant, Workshop Assistant, Gnawing Zombie, Chimney Imp, Insidious Bookworms, Disciple of Phenax, Fume Spitter, Rotting Rats, Ravenous Rats, Corrupt Court Official, Vampiric Rites, Dark Prophecy, Contamination, Shadows of the Past, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Gate to Phyrexia, Disciple of Griselbrand, Harvester of Souls, Mindlash Sliver, Deathgreeter, Kalastria Healer, Altar of the Brood, Altar of Dementia, Black Market, Disciple of the Vault, Blasting Station, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Bitter Ordeal, Buried Alive, Palace Siege, Soot Imp, Tree of Perdition, Spine of Ish Sah, Trading Post, Solemn Simulacrum, Thrull Surgeon, Slithery Stalker, Ashen-Skin Zubera, Geth's Grimoire, Killing Wave, Necroskitter, Thorn of the Black Rose, Myr Moonvessel, and Arcane Lighthouse (just in case they have a Sigarda, Host of Herons or something.) Also if you can afford it: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale.

The card i found helping most is Collective Brutality && Smallpox but they replace Darkblast.
Because of the minimum 24x Creatures i cannot spare many spots to Sorc / Enchant / Instant / Artifact.
(24 is personal preference but its the one i feel better at)
Collective Brutality does the same or perhaps an even better job from Darkblast , but i love this little guy.
Darkblast saved my ass so many times i feel weak without it in it.
(it wrecks Affinity / Infect)
On the premise of "Discard" effects i am looking for awesome Creatures.
Rotting Rats && Mindlash Sliver speed me while they slow the opponent , currently i am looking to survive Burn / Affinity / Zoo and discarding them really helps.
Thanks for the suggestion.It really would speed things up but no room at the current build:D

I have a couple questions regarding my deck
Firstly, I'm not sure if I should run Shrieking Affliction or Quest for the Nihil Stone or 2 of each? Shrieking Affliction is still good mid to late game and its requirements are easier met. However, Quest for the Nihil Stone is a bigger threat and force the opponent into trying to keep cards in hand.
