Necrotic Sliver Discussion

Hahaha no I had not! That is an awesome suggestion, lagotripha, I'm legitimately gonna think about that one. Takes pumping creatures to the next level, and really capitalizes on Necrotic Sliver in a way I never thought possible. Might even replace Rhonas, if not for his trample.

Heya, this might sound kinda stupid, but I was wondering, have you considered Mirror Entity so you can attack with an arbitrarily large creature while saccing everything else to Necrotic Sliver?

One I think would be cool is one called Apex Sliver. It would include:


Legendary Creature - Sliver

Sliver creatures you control have hexproof.


If not that though some other ideas I had were either a sliver that grants undying, although I'm thinking this could be too good and i'm not sure what you would call it as Necrotic Sliver already exists which would have been a good name. Or a sliver that allows your slivers when they enter to fight target creature similar to how Harmonic Sliver works.

Other ideas include one possibly called Blooming Sliver.

Creature - Sliver


At the beginning of your upkeep, put a +1/+1 counter on sliver creatures you control.


Noxious Sliver

Creature - Sliver

Whenever a sliver creature you control dies, you may put a -1/-1 counter on target creature.

Pheardemons tnx for the comment :)

i think Whiskerbro ment that you said that Sliver Overlord is also good to add, but its already in there :)

I never thougt of the combo with Dormant Sliver and Intruder Alarm etc, i will try it out.

My only concern is Crystalline Sliver when its on the battlefield i cant target my own slivers anymore,because they have shroud en no hexproof.Thats why i added Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

Im going to addTunnel Visionbecause thats just bad ass haha

the thing i use is Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling to put my opponents creatures under my controll, or take controll then use Necrotic Sliver sac it en destroy another creature :)

ill take a look at your deck and i might have some tips:)

I'd concur regarding Archetype's usefulness in that sense, but when looking at the quantity we need to filter down to, I'd have to compare it to the other ways to protect Alesha. Recon is insane here, as is Maze of Ith, and both are a little harder to remove compared to bouncing/destroying a creature.

That and we need to organize this based on effects per creature, so discard dudes, detainers, blinkers, reanimators, destruction, etc. And see how many repeat effects there are, and if there are any we can shave down.

WHOOPPPPPPS I didn't see Stonehorn here. Redundancy works, you're absolutely right I think it's still down to "we have 15 cards that may or may not add more redundancy than need be". IIRC, my Alesha build had about 17-19 creatures, and EVEN THEN it was still more creature-driven than the Tiered Decklist Example.

Hmm, you're right about the Shadow Creature. I like that now. I'd change my mind to the Mindclaw Shaman. It wholly depends on whether or not they're have instants or sorceries in hand. And even still, is this something you'd want to reanimate over something else in the GY?

The Hexmage is definitely sweet, but after reflecting on why you need it, Necrotic Sliver seems better. Removing Counters off of one target doesn't slow an Atraxa TOO much. But with this one sliver, it's now a recurrable hard destroy to any permanent. A Thran Dynamo to activate and sac, blow something up, Combat with Alesha, activate and reanimate once more. Hoping you have another 2 open you could repeat.

And instead of Oppression, what about another EDH hatebear like Harsh Mentor or Aven Mindcensor?

Hahhaha the Possibility loop is pretty kewl.

I'd also consider Gonti, Lord of Luxury to repeatedly exile cards and play them.

nice,mana doe the trick:)

Ik saw you have Amoeboid Changeling in your sidebord,but it most definitely must go in the main because of the combo with Sliver Hivelord.

with the changeling you can turn a creature your opponent controlls into a sliver an gain control of it with the hivlord. best thing is it stays under your controll permanently.

Another combo is Amoeboid Changeling + Sliver Hivelord + Necrotic Sliveryou change an opponant's creature in to a sliver, gain controll of it, pay sacrafice it and destroy another permanent :)

Otherslivers you could use are the Crypt Sliver and Galerider Sliver

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!

MohenjoDaro on Much Slivers. Very Infinite. Wow.

You forgot to add Basal Sliver to your combo list (it's pretty good for infinite black mana).

Is there a reason Necrotic Sliver isn't in the deck? It's hands down one of the best removal cards out there, especially when you have infinite tokens, you can destroy your opponents' lands, not much better than that. If you wait for them to tap a land you can destroy it in response so they don't even get the mana.
