Psionic Sliver Discussion

Don't underestimate how powerful Dormant Sliver can be, often allowing you to draw into your deck deeply to find what you need, provided you have a means to sacrifice them like Firewake Sliver or something like that. Another notable is Psionic Sliver: while it may seem bad at first, with a few muscles and sinews, you have an alternate win condition which you can use to break games where combat is not possible.

Heartstone is another artifact you can use in place of Training Grounds to reduce the cost of your slivers abilities although it does work for the other players in the game as well.

Warstorm Surge allows for targeted removal as you play slivers because it is an ETB effect all slivers will enter with all the abilities they would be getting from the rest of your slivers.

Crypt Sliver is a nice way to keep your slivers alive by giving them all regenerate.

Psionic Sliver is one of the slivers I didn't much like when I was building my deck due to the feedback damage from it triggering your own deathtouch on your own creatures. Burning Sands is also a card that you need to be careful of yourself incase you get wiped and lose all of your lands.

As it stands the sliver deck I made had a higher budget and was a different style to yours. The bomb I had was Primal Surge with no other non-permanent cards in the entire deck. My play group also liked to wipe out the board in various different ways on me so cards that could hurt me I had to avoid.

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:

Psionic Sliver or Constricting Sliver or Acidic Sliver or Telekinetic Sliver or Necrotic Sliver?

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.

Maze of Ith has other friends like Ice Floe.

Screeching Sliver can back up Psionic Sliver as a kill condition, letting you mill out the opponent, and help make your deck modern legal by replacing Metallic Sliver.

Icbrgr, thanks for the comment and +1, the hive appreciates it. The combo potential of Venom Sliver is great, as Deathtouch is just a wonderful ability. Quilled Sliver's ability is also great, but it does leave much to be desired. The strict stipulation of having to target an attacking or blocking creature really limits the combo's viability. A similar Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver is also pretty lackluster. I wish for I could get a slightly improved Psionic Sliver. It's design simply falls short of a Prodigal Sorcerer, which I believe it's supposed to be, but a Sliver. Quilled Sliver isn't bad, but its not optimized.

Hah, well that combo is a bit too janky...and doesn't work. I just realized as the sliver untaps and taps again, it'll end up killing itself. Let me try another combo...

Magma Sliver + Burning Anger - This seems slightly less jank, and slightly more practical. The only problem is is that you have to have a decent sliver presence on the board, and enough mana available to cast the spell CMC is a little bit hefty IMO. But I definitely think nobody would see this coming.

I'm still trying to find something more viable regarding the previously mentioned Psionic combo, maybe this would be better - Quicksilver Dagger + Any Sliver + Mind Over Matter. This seems less jank, IMO.

I feel that Psionic Sliver is just an example of potential lost. I think the R&D folks who designed it just dropped the ball. They should've made it a 1/1 for - all slivers have deal 2 damage to target creature or player. Also make it mythic, rather than rare. It'd be a good sliver, but super glassy and easy to deal with...but the important part is that it'd be a worthwhile contribution to the hive, and a good creature outside of being a sliver. Produgal Sliver, it is not. Oh well. Hope these combos seem more worthwhile.

Okay, so my original suggestion was too aggro...well this is a rather wonky combo, so take it worth a grain of salt but...

Watcher Sliver + Psionic Sliver + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter - Basically you'll just tap a sliver, deal 2 damage to target opponent, draw a card. Discard said card to untap target sliver, tap them again to deal 2 damage, draw, etc. All I can say is that nobody would see that combo coming...and it's not infinite.
