Mindlash Sliver Discussion

Depends on the format. The multiple reliable modes of access to indirect & non-combat damage with slivers gives them the unique ability to simply outwait the opposition that so many agro creature strategies can't usually pull... But elves have their infinite mana with x spells ability as well.
For me the most degenerate slivers have been the indirect repeat abuse effect slivers the "sac a sliver do dmg" or Necrotic Sliver or Mindwhip Sliver or Mindlash Sliver ... Not many walls safe from that junk :)

I really like this one too!
This packages gives you some game against control while the bounce from Sigil allows you to either catch up or lock an opponent out of their big threat.

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.
