Predatory Sliver Discussion

Also I am confused as to how you start with all 50 cards that are Common on the battlefield? Does this imply that you can't have any instant or sorcery spells?
And what about lands? Can you just have 50x basic lands and literally start the game off with 50 mana?
After the 1st player moves through their 1st turn, wouldn't each successive player automatically lose as when they go to draw, they literally have no library to draw into since they have all 50 cards on the battlefield? So their libraries have 0 cards, right?
Or do you start with 50 non-land common creatures on the field but you still have a library?
There would be so many Turn 1 instant wins for whomever goes first that it's literally not worth building into. I'm sorry, but that's the truth.

Drakorya: as much as i love slivers (its my favorite modern deck. its on my decks page if you wanna check it out) i'm not sure if they have enough for pioneer. i tried to put a list together, but couldn't come up with anything i liked. there aren't enough good slivers in Collected Company range imo to go that route, and you don't want cmc 4+ slivers in a coco build. a pioneer sliver deck would likely have to go a midrange route. the problem with that though is that it basically gets locked into a GWx color combo imo, because Predatory Sliver is the only buff they get, and Bonescythe Sliver is the only 4-drop. the only 5 drop worth using imo is Battle Sliver . maybe a naya midrange build could work, but idk. best thing about it i see is the Venom Sliver and Striking Sliver synergy. Sliver Hivelord puts a great strain on the mana base. too many creature-specific rainbow lands prevents the deck from casting the removal spells it will need to survive.

The deck is lacking in pump slivers beyond Predatory Sliver due to card legality in the format, which hurts the deck's power. In addition, I don't think the red slivers added do much to help the deck. Perhaps a switch to sultai by dropping Blur Sliver and Striking Sliver and adding Leeching Sliver and Syphon Sliver , and then switching out the manabase, could help. Might be wrong and it may be working fine but I don't know.

Gotta admit, this deck probably really only has two ways to go; either infinite mana or buff heavier. Now I could go for Sinew Sliver and Muscle Sliver inclusions and really make it more combat-focused and overwhelming in the early game or I go full in on the mana gimmick. So for now I decided to embrace the later one by going for one of the classics adding Mana Echoes .
cutting down on fat (stuff like Sentinel Sliver and Brood Sliver had to go), added a second Sliver Queen as well as a Patriarch's Bidding for consistency/power. The addition of Cautery Sliver allows to heal myself in a pinch as well as to turn sliver tokens into damage missiles and get rid of Slivers with detrimental effects.
Unclaimed Territory is great, don't know how I could miss that before :) So yeah...auto-include xD
...and saving the best for last: The birds flew away...probably gone south or something. However...don't fret! Due to Swan Song in the SB we definitely won't lack in avian friends. ^_°

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.

In creating this deck I researched numerous things to get started. Among these I looked at other sliver decks and on gatherer I went through all 0 cost cards, slivers and changelings. Unfortunately Taurean Mauler , like Chameleon Colossus , didn't make the cut. I avoided it because I preferred pump cards that have a more global effect rather than buffing just itself. This is because Taurean Mauler on its own can be blocked by a single creature if we don't have evasion or can be simply killed off when it becomes a problem. Furthermore it doesn't have an immediate effect on the board, for our fast/surprise kills, while the lords such as Predatory Sliver , Sinew Sliver , Muscle Sliver and Blade Sliver .
However, the card does seem interesting in the way that it can draw destruction away from The First Sliver , being able to get out of hand relatively quickly. For now I probably won't run it, but it might be a good option in future.

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.

So I have a few similar cards as you, but their pricing is different. Muscle Sliver here is $0.34 while mine is $1.05. Predatory Sliver is $0.24 while mine is $0.46. I set it to common, modern, casual, even set the listings to slightly used. Anything I'm doing wrong or not doing?
