Mirri's Guile Discussion
2 weeks ago
@Thorbogl thanks for your comment!
I do own one copy of Snapcaster Mage but it currently resides in another deck. I would be stoked to eventually pick up a second to drop in this list ;)
In the beginning I was considering going the reveal-my-topdeck route with cards like Oracle of Mul Daya, Future Sight, Courser of Kruphix, and maybe even Garruk's Horde. I kind of like to keep my opponents guessing so I decided against the idea. Oracle of Mul Daya is really freakin' good and my friends have suggested it as well. I'm hoping I have enough top deck manipulation with Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile to make rashmi run smoothly. I do run Vizier of the Menagerie in my animar deck which is almost 50% creatures haha

Hey, to mitigate the land problem I suggest playing more cards that can manipulate the top of the library allowing you to draw business and not lands or visa versa if you need lands then these cards can help to find them.
I recommend going with 43x total lands. Consider adding Scrying Sheets and replacing normal Forests with Snow-Covered Forests? Sheets can help to both thin the deck of Snow Forests and put a land into your hand. I also suggest replacing three lands adding in there place these three cards: Sensei's Divining Top, Mirri's Guile and Sylvan Safekeeper. Top and Guile are excellent with Oracle, Courser, Library, Sheets manipulating the top of the library to not draw lands, but getting to play lands from the top or putting them into your hand from the library after drawing for the turn.
Sylvan Safekeeper is quite powerful with land strategies especially with Titania, Crucible, Excavator, Tracker, Loam. Sac lands to protect Azusa or other creatures from targeted removal get them back and create Elementals or clues for draw.
Consider adding Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre? Very powerful Eldrazi with annihilator, great finisher and more unconditional permanent removal is nice to have have.

Now, onward to DiabeticFire's questions about their deck and card choices -
The incorporation of filterlands are an excellent start, incredible lands for the price. However, I think you're missing out on the Shocklands, Dual colored cycling lands and Battle Lands. They're all far more affordable than original duals and on top of that they are all typed. That means you can get the most out of your Skyshroud Claim or Nature's Lore.
As for your individual card suggestions, i'll address them all one by one:
Mana Drain => Arcane Denial: I'd consider Forbid over Arcane Denial, the one thing i'm always weary of is giving my opponent cards. Sure, they'll be less salty towards you when you counter one of their wincons, but giving them options isn't always a good thing.
Vampiric Tutor => Demonic Tutor: Aw come on. $10 more and you'd have the vampiric. Honestly, in this case...why not both? But I can understand that it's painful to pay so much for just two cards. Another less costly option would be Wargate, Infernal Tutor or Worldly Tutor.
Engineered Explosives => Blasphemous Act: so the idea here is to have some surgical mass removal. Originally, Harsh Mercy took this slot but it was not very effective. Now given the surging popularity of tribal decks, that card is even less useful. I'd suggest In Garruk's Wake. Also you have the bonus of picking up a sweet promo art version of it.
Mana Crypt => Fellwar Stone: Fellwar was originally in this deck as well. Honestly, I'd suggest you try and acquire a mana crypt anyway due to it's relatively recent printing in eternal masters. I know it's expensive, but the recent re-printing brought the price down to the cheapest i've ever seen. I honestly think that Prismatic Geoscope should take the slot here though.
Scroll Rack => Prismatic Geoscope: So the point to Scroll rack is to have top deck manipulation. Something to get you to the right card at the right time. Geoscope isn't going to do that. Some suggestions would be Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant or even Future Sight. That last one was a bit out there, maybe go with the ball.
Sensei's Divining Top => Distant Melody: So, Sensei's is strictly top deck manipulation while Distant melody is all about card draw. Melody is the strictly worse option here due to it being dependent on creatures being in play. A well timed mass removal event can make Melody utterly worthless to you. I'd go for something like Kindred Discovery if you want to go in on draw.
Hope my suggestions were useful to you. If you think any of my thoughts were bad or good, let me know! I always enjoy talking about about Slivers and magic. But mostly Slivers :P

Hey thraashman, very interesting list that you put together. I just finished reading the description. There's a minor typo at "... win condition of the primary ...". Now, I'm gonna assume this is a more casual deck of yours, so I'll spare you of my comments about how to make your list more competitive. Instead, let me see if I can give you suggestions on how to improve what you are trying to do with the deck, that is, find and take advantage of Deceiver of Form. I can see you already got the basic tutor package covered (A+ there) but I think that Conduit of Ruin would be a great addition to it, as it can tutor for Deceiver and make it cost less. Also, if you already have deceiver, you can use it to tutor for another big Eldrazi to copy with Deceiver. In the same vein, Mirri's Guile can help you filter your draws and make it easier to activate Deceiver's ability. I'm sure there are other ways to improve the list but these are my main suggestions. I hope they are useful. Good luck on your future games!

Hey there everyone! I have been trying to finish my Sliver deck now for what seems like forever and I am very close to it! I am just eight cards away and am hoping to maybe trade for them If possible. The cards I am looking for are:
So those are what I am in need of. Please take a look at my binder to see if we can make a deal!Binder Link

So I have spent a while doing some research, and I have found a few things that I want to pick your brains about.
Third is Cover of Darkness. It makes the entire brood extremely difficult to block, which could come in handy if Sliver Queen or some other combo piece gets exiled and you need to win through commander damage or combat damage.
Urza's Incubator Gives a cost reduction of for only to cast. Seems great to me.
Also, I built my own version of this deck. I do not have the original duals, so I replaced them with the Shadowmoor/Eventide filter lands. In addition, I made the following substitutes for budget reasons. (I tried to get each substitution to fill a similar role but I just dont have the library manipulation cards, so I went with ramp and card draw)
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Cost is always a big factor. Turn one plays are super relevant. The other thing is that Mirri's Guile does not require any other cards to function with it, whereas Kindred Discovery needs creatures of the named type. Because judging a card at it's best sets a bad benchmark. You need to look at how well the card will get you out of trouble.
