Necrotic Sliver Discussion
2 days ago
Paradox Engine is a must in sliver commander decks, since it pairs so nicely with Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver. You use your slivers to cast a sliver to untap your slivers to play another sliver to untap your slivers to . . . If you have Dormant Sliver in play, you can keep these shenanigans going for quite a while.
I also think you are incorrect about Sliver Overlord vs. Sliver Hivelord--Overlord simply provides a lot more utility as your commander. You can tutor your Hibernation Sliver to make your Dormant Sliver more effective. You can tutor your Hivelord to give your slivers indestructible. You can tutor your Crystalline Sliver if their deck is heavy on removal. You can tutor your Necrotic Sliver if they are about to combo out. You can . . . I think you get the point.

In that case, Necrotic Sliver will be your friend. Turning each sliver into a 3 mana destruction spell is incredibly useful. This is not even limited by permanent type! You can take out their 15 mana bomb they just dropped, or neuter their Tron mana base by destroying one of the lands, or simply destroy some lesser Eldrazi that is giving you issues.

Thanks for everyone's reply wow greatly appreciate it.
I have every Sliver out there so I like the Sliver Hive and Necrotic Sliver idea except it takes 5 mana just to create one 1/1 sliver. His unblockables are only 1 mana cost and can get them out right away.
I do like Gideon of the Trials as well for a 3 cost and Maze of Ith seems useful as well for me. the Instant and Sorcery cards are nice but they are only a one time use. It would be nice to have something permanent on the field to help with the situation

You did not mention a format this is for but there are other ways to keep his creatures off of you. Even with slivers. Have you tried the following:
Having a way to make slivers makes Necrotic Sliver probably game-ending if not addressed. Use a Sliver Hive to make slivers and then use the Necrotic Sliver's ability to destroy their creatures, then their lands. Game over.

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 :)

Sylvan Library provides fairly significant card advantage, while also allowing manipulation of the top of your deck.
Hibernation Sliver is a wonderful card which protects your slivers from removal.
This may seem a tad silly at first, but I think Dormant Sliver is a pretty solid option in sliver EDH decks. Slivers tend to be low-costed, and you might quickly find your hand empty. Dormant Sliver lets you rapidly refresh your hand, with the minor downside of skipping an attack or two. Once you wish to attack again, it is easy enough to remove, allowing your creatures to attack again (Necrotic Sliver, Path to Exile, Hibernation Sliver, etc.).

xyr0s: theres definitely good reason for slivers to be 5-color. right off the rip the decks main lords are green (Predatory Sliver), white (Sinew Sliver), and red (Sedge Sliver). Sedge Sliver requires swamps, so you might as well use some black slivers like Syphon Sliver to heal any damage from fetchlands and shocklands, or Necrotic Sliver in the sideboard. as for blue, Galerider Sliver, Diffusion Sliver, and Phantasmal Image as a 4th lord seem like a pretty strong argument.
