Mirri's Guile Discussion

Traveler247 on The Big Wave

I've been using this deck to playtest against, and I've gotten maybe 20 games in against my decks now (they're all private, don't bother looking). I have a few suggestions.

Overall, you struggle when you can't find Quest for Ula's Temple. This is just an unfortunate fact of building around a specific card, but fortunately there are numerous ways of cheating creatures into play. Here are some ideas: See the Unwritten, Quicksilver Amulet, Proteus Staff, Polymorph, Mindwrack Liege, Lurking Predators, Elvish Piper, Call to the Kindred, Braids, Conjurer Adept, and Belbe's Portal.

Your topdeck manipulation is both mediocre and only used to dig for Quest for Ula's Temple. The idea of using creatures to dig is dandy, since they trigger quest as well, but they are a bit slow, and I'm not convinced the trade off is worth it. Here are some deck manipulation options: Brainstorm, Crystal Ball, Cream of the Crop, Mirri's Guile, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library, Soothsaying, Sensei's Divining Top, Aqueous Form and Worldly Tutor.

Here are some ways to take further advantage of topdeck manipulation: Oracle of Mul Daya, Courser of Kruphix, Druidic Satchel, Bloodline Shaman, and I'm sure there are more, but I'm falling asleep in my chair.

Weird, you tagged me in the deck and I didn't get a notification. Odd...

Anywho, looks really good. After playtesting it, I recommend some more draw (Rhystic Study, Mirri's Guile, Sylvan Library), protection Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Privileged Position, Karmic Justice), and cheat cards (Omniscience, Dream Halls, Omen Machine).

Although to think about it, I think running Cast Through Time and Eye of the Storm would be hilarious. Just keep casting those board wipes.

Hey Pozo2212, Descendants' Path has great interaction with Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, and Mirri's Guile, but can hinder my progress without any of those other cards in play. It'd be a much better fit for an Aggro Sliver deck vs. mine, which is Control. Wild Pair is a great card, but the CMC is just too darn high to be viable in a competitive deck. Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots/Whispersilk Cloak are pretty awesome, I haven't really considered them. So I'll definitely give each card some thought. Eerie Interlude is only good for one use...and I would need to have it in hand when the wrath effect goes down. None of my slivers have ETB (enter the battlefield) effects...so outside of that one specific situation the card is more or less useless. Thanks for your comment! The hive is pleased.

For top deck manipulation: Mirri's Guile, Sylvan Library

For tutors: Enlightened Tutor, Eladamri's Call, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Worldly Tutor

Another suggestion is to lower your avg CMC. It is tough to mana fix with 4 colors already. Having a high CMC along with so many tapped lands and very little wrath spells, it makes it hard for the deck to start up. You need time to start up, so I'd add at least Wrath of God to tag team with Blasphemous Act. Lastly, if you only have 4 basics, the Check and Tango lands aren't as strong. Just my 2 cents

Quite the post, Eiti3...thank you very much for the +1 and the kind words. The Queen is most pleased.

I didn't build this style sheet all on my own, I had a lot of help from multimedia. He(or she) is incredibly talented in their own right, and if you want to see another beautiful deck page, look no further than Energy Elves.

As for your card suggestions...let's take a look:

  • Druids' Repository: I would prefer to have this mana rock out as early as possible, but it's dependent on my ability to produce creatures and having a viable target(s) every round. I can see how this could get out of control when combined with Brood Sliver. I think this card has a lot of potential, but is entirely dependent on if i'm able to populate the battlefield quickly and attack consistently. Then there are cards like Ghostly Prison, which would just turn this mana rock into just a rock if my opponent were to run one.

  • Cream of the Crop: Great potential to become over the top, but may not function as consistently as one would like, additionally I think the CMC should be . This card would be a great albeit cheaper ($ wise) alternative to cards like Sensei's Divining Top and now Mirri's Guile. Slivers generally don't have the highest power/toughness on their own...so if I wasn't able to find the right creatures (i.e. Sinew, Bonesplitter, Sedge, or Legion then the card would only perform minimally at best.

  • Crib Swap: So the strength of this card is the fact that it is tutor-able (via Sliver Overlord) target creature removal. That's pretty big. The problem I have with this card however is the fact that it's , and more often than not, i'd have to pay an additional just to get my hands on it when I need it. Constricting Sliver comes to mind at the moment, however that card is super awful. I would be more inclined to wanting it if it were just . I like the idea, but I'd sooner include Swords to Plowshares.

  • Peer Pressure: I remember this card from back in the day. I first started playing magic during the Onslaught block...those were the days. Yeah. I agree this card is super duper janky. What's worse is that it's at Sorcery speed, meaning I would have an extremely limited number of chances to actually get that sick mass-mind control combo to happen. A fun idea...but I just can't...not this card...I'd just run Bribery.

Thanks again for the +1, and your card suggestions. Honestly, I think this is it for now. I'm currently just buying up the last few cards for this deck which would be 3 fetchlands, and 2 of the original duals. Then I can finally take this thing out to play properly. Once new slivers come out though, that's when this deck will see changes.
