Predatory Sliver Discussion

JAPuckett85 on A Hive of Slivers

1 week ago

I have a sliver deck as well & will make a few suggestions if i may? Crystalline Sliver is by far the best sliver ever printed, imo, but he is not legal in Modern- & the next best thing is Diffusion Sliver! Diffusion Sliver &/or Opaline Sliver are crucial to playing slivers, since targeted removal is a sliver-deck's greatest enemy.. & unlike many sliver-abilities, their abilities actually stack, so with 2 Diffusion Slivers in play, a Path to Exile or Fatal Push or Lightning Bolt would cost FIVE mana just to take out one of your slivers.. I see you have 2 Diffusion Sliver, but since he is so important to keep your engine going, i personally prefer to run 3 of them (they are not aggressive enough to run 4x though, imo). Sentinel Sliver is amazing, & i would recommend 2x in every sliver deck! You can even attack, then use tapping abilities during 2nd Main Phase, effectively giving you a 2nd turn in comparison to running without him. Megantic Sliver is a total game-changer, and i have found 2x Megantic to be very very good. I run 4x Manaweft to be able to cast him, though, plus 1x Gemhide Sliver. Groundshaker Sliver is pretty bad.. I think Battering Sliver is actually better, but he is pretty bad too, imo.. I would cut them in fvor of Megantic Sliver. For a mana-base, 4x Sliver Hive is worth every penny, and 4 Ancient Ziggurat is nearly the same thing for about $1 (that is if you cut some of the sorceries, which i would personally cut all of them in favor of more slivers!). I think Spinneret Sliver is pretty terrible when you could be running Galerider Sliver as a 1-drop with a better ability. Predatory Sliver should be a 4-of, as should Sinew Sliver, which i am surprised to not see here. With 4x Venom Sliver, i would definitely recommend running at least 2x each of Striking Sliver & Bonescythe Sliver!! Another good card to run with the deathtouch is Quilled Sliver, though i wouldn't run more than 1-2 since his targets are limited to attacking/blocking creatures. Blur Sliver is ok, but i have found that cutting him is better- by the time you cast him, you should have other slivers in play, and every single sliver gives its ability to every other sliver, with or without the haste. I would rather give the slivers already in play more abilities instead of giving the cards yet to be played the ability to do the SAME THING as all the other slivers one turn earlier . Since it doesn't help with Predatory/Sinew's ability, i would cut Hardened Scales in favor of something like Collected Company. Harmonic Sliver is a must-have sideboard card, and i run 1x in my mainboard as well. Remember that Virulent Sliver has POISONOUS 1, not Infect- what this means is that your pump spells don't add any additional poison counters to your opponent; each sliver will only give them one poison counter when it connects (unless the pump is from Double Strike! More reason to play Bonescythe Sliver! That would double the poison counters as well). Anyways, sorry for the rant, but hopefully I've given you some ideas! I love slivers!! A couple more fun slivers as 1-ofs are Pulmonic Sliver and Telekinetic Sliver.. so many awesome abilities! Check out my Slivershod deck! My nephew played my Sliver deck against me with my Zombie deck and ended up swinging at me with 150+ damage at once, with Flying, Deathtouch, Double Strike, Lifelink, Indestructible, & a Diffusion Sliver!! That just shows how insanely out of hand they can get if they go un-checked. Good luck!

Add Mutavault and move to shock lands with Swamps in them Godless Shrine, look into Verdant Catacombs also with mana fixing

I'd also look into getting 4 of each sliver lord Sedge Sliver Predatory Sliver and Sinew Sliver, works great for extra damage with Collected Company or Aether Vial

Most games I play with mine, I've main boarded 4 Necrotic Sliver and 3 Diffusion Sliver, it makes removal a breeze for you and almost impossible against your opponent.

Blur Sliver is also a great addition, combos with Manaweft Sliver to drop your hand and/or swing hard

Like, I don't get why you aren't just playing the good ones? Muscle Sliver. Sinew Sliver. Predatory Sliver. Each of those is better as a 4 of than a 2/2 changling.

Have you seen the proper Meathooks deck?

Awesome deck! I love Sliver Legion, Sinew Sliver, Sedge Sliver, and Predatory Sliver being used to strengthen your other slivers. Also, I like your land choices and Manaweft Sliver also being used to get all five colors needed for this deck. However I recommend Sliver Hive be used so you can get both mana and slivers if you need. Also, I recommend Diffusion Sliver in your sideboard if you are going against a control deck. I will be adding Sliver Legion to my sliver deck.+1 upvote!

I would load up on Harmonic Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Sinew Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Gemhide Sliver ...and Sliver Hivelord is also very powerful. I would cut Toxin Sliver, Spined Sliver, Horned Sliver, and Darkheart Sliver. If you have the money 4x Aether Vial is a bit of an investment, but they go in any Modern aggro deck not just Slivers. Good luck!

A few suggestions:

Your biggest problem is Mana Fixing to get all the colors you need especially in order to get Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Overlord

For this I would definitely include a Rupture Spire and Ancient Ziggurat for lands to start. I would also definitely include a Chromatic Lantern and Armillary Sphere. In addition to these I would also include 4 Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver.

As for slivers I would up the Winged Sliver to 4 or take them out entirely and replace them with Galerider Sliver for one less mana. In addition to these you might want to add Mesmeric Sliver for some good control. Finally I would also add some "pump up" slivers to help make them more survivable. You could choose from Predatory Sliver, Muscle Sliver, or Sinew Sliver, just to name a few.

As a final word I would include more playsets (Sets of 4 cards) for more consistency in the deck as opposed to all the different cards. This is just a suggestion. Build the deck to your playstyle

Hope this helps

Forkbeard on Sliver Overlord: Slivers Gone Wild

Having spent the last few years with a beat down style sliver deck, not only was it not as effective as I wanted it to be, it was also getting a little stale...time to spice things up a little! Another important factor, Overlord is fantastic but also very slow - as it turns out, an 8 mana/5 colour tutor isn't exactly efficient. With these thoughts in mind, I've decided to give the deck a significant overhaul with 2 goals in mind: improve reliability + increase shenanigans.

I've taken out most of the pump slivers in favour of a few effective combo slivers. I've also learned that I need some disruption to avoid the hive mind's mortal enemy - board wipes. Anyway, here's the change list:

Out: Aphetto Dredging, Constricting Sliver, Cryptolith Rite, Distant Melody, Horned Sliver, Magma Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Might Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Root Sliver, Shared Animosity, Synapse Sliver, Telekinetic Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver, Toxin Sliver, Ward Sliver

In: Basal Sliver, Blur Sliver, Commander's Sphere, Counterspell, Crypt Sliver, Darksteel Ingot, Disallow, Dormant Sliver, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Paradox Engine, Quick Sliver, Swan Song, Voidslime, Wheel of Sun and Moon, Winged Sliver

I'm looking forward to seeing how this refreshed build performs.

Predatory Sliver and Sinew Sliver should both be 4-ofs in my opinion due to how efficient they are. I also would highly recommend Aether Vial for the deck as:

1) Your slivers can't be countered if you vial them in

2) Dropping a lord live Predatory Sliver and Sinew Sliver can mess with combat for your opponent

3) Doesnt require you to have all the colors of mana
