Necrotic Sliver Discussion

the majority of slivers that people play in modern will only affect their own side of the board, which means your statement "opponents Sliver abilities will stack on our swarm of 1/1 Slivers" is actually pretty inaccurate.

also, Dormant Sliver will just enable your sliver opponent to just keep drawing cards until they have an answer to it. Homing Sliver will let them get their Necrotic Sliver to blow up your Dormant Sliver .

Screeching Sliver will just let your sliver opponent mill you.

should definitely use more lands if you wanna use cmc 5 cards. theres no guarantee you'll draw a mana sliver.

Quick Sliver is not modern legal.

as someone who has played 5C slivers in modern for over 3 years now, i can safely say that this build wouldn't stop my slivers. i run Aether Vial and Collected Company , which allows me to drop slivers faster, and i also run plenty of buffing slivers ( Predatory Sliver , Sinew Sliver , Sedge Sliver , and Phantasmal Image to copy them) which guarantees my slivers are bigger. so unless you're lucky enough to get a turn 2 Manaweft Sliver followed by a turn 3 Dormant Sliver , i'm gonna win too quick for your plan to work. even then, i'll just grow my army while gaining tons of life off my Lavabelly Sliver (which could also just kill you on its own if you try to stall too long, since its affect stacks with itself, and i have Phantasmal Image to copy it). then when you finally blow up your own Dormant Sliver , i win anyway.

Yay slivers! +1

Dormant Sliver is a powerhouse in any sliver deck, and when you're ready to attack you can sacrifice him to Necrotic Sliver

Eladamri's Call is a good creature tutor.

Chromatic Lantern can help fix your colors.

Seasons Past can help you rebuild after an inevitable board wipe.

Harvest Season can be a great ramp spell in a deck like this, especially when you have 3+ tapped creatures.

Hope this helps!

not sure what you mean by "utility". slivers are meant to be aggressive. Dormant Sliver just doesn't help the deck. it buys the opponent too much time to recuperate and find an answer. the only method your deck has for actually winning is to attack, and Dormant Sliver prevents that. if your opponent blows up your Necrotic Sliver while you still have a Dormant Sliver in play, you lose. the bottom line is that you're forced to attack in order to win, and pumping your slivers is the best way to put yourself in a position where you can make favorable attacks. i've been playing slivers for over 3 years in modern now, so i have a good amount of experience with what i'm talkin about. also note that slivers put into play with Aether Vial won't trigger cascade

you're missing almost all of the best slivers. Predatory Sliver , Sinew Sliver , and Sedge Sliver . you definitely want to take out Dormant Sliver , especially since your only hope of blowing it up yourself (so you can start attacking again) is Necrotic Sliver . Phantasmal Image and Collected Company are also really powerful.

In prep for working in some new slivers from Modern Horizons, I've made the following changes:

IN: Hibernation Sliver , Homing Sliver , Necrotic Sliver

OUT: Magma Sliver , Vampiric Sliver , Amoeboid Changeling

I've found the ones coming out generally not useful (though the changeling has saved Seedborn Muse once or twice.

I'm hoping the new ones will work better and help me with cascading once The First Sliver is put in.

Fun deck! +1

I also have a sliver deck and one of my favorites is Dormant Sliver . Keeps the cards coming and when you're ready to attack you can sacrifice it to Necrotic Sliver . You may also want to add Beast Whisperer for the card draw, even though it's not a sliver.

I think vigilance is an underrated keyword, which is why I also recommend Sentinel Sliver .

Also, almost forgot - speaking of Sliver design, in my opinion the previously mentioned Esper Sliver is well...trying to do entirely way too much. Choose one thing. That's what Slivers do. Each sliver focuses on just one ability and brings it to the hive. Also, to my knowledge, there isn't a single sliver that's been printed before that is a 3/3 for only of any kind. When designing a Sliver you can't just put down what you want - you have to consider every other Sliver that came before it (I made that mistake too!). You also have to consider other cards that have been printed previously that are similar to your Sliver's design.

Slivers are the only tribe unique to magic, and as such they are meant to be something of a tribute to the game itself. The two Sliver designs I like to reference are Harmonic Sliver and Necrotic Sliver . Their designs are based off of Aura Shards and Vindicate respectively. Each Sliver embodies those classic spells, with with a bit of a twist to keep them from overshadowing them. Try and keep that in mind when thinking of your new sliver.
