OP_Sigma, I was aware of Spiteful Sliver - and was mulling over what it could be combined with. I guess now is a time to have a discussion over it. As a "counter" to Blasphemous Act's okay. When combined Psionic Sliver the damage to itself aspect of it's ability seems like it could be put to some good use...but then there's the issue where most Slivers don't have that much toughness - unless a Sliver Legion (or other lord) is present. Can you think of any combos or synergies with Spiteful Sliver ?

This will work. Abilities on the stack exist independently of their source. If the source does, the ability still resolved.

Here, let’s call the sliver we are using A. Here is how the stack plays:

  1. You activate A’s ability conferred by Psionic Sliver . It goes on the stack.

  2. Before that resolves, you sacrifice it using A’s ability conferred to it by Darkheart Sliver .

  3. The Darkheart ability resolves, you gain 3 life.

  4. The Psionic ability resolves and deals two damage to the target. It did not fizzle just because A died, unless A was the target for the ability (which would be a tad silly).

This is a question that came up today in my EDH group. I had both Psionic Sliver and Darkheart Sliver in play. My question is: can I tap another sliver for Psionic Sliver 's ability, and then immediately sack it with Darkheart Sliver , both dealing the two damage and gaining the three life? Or will the ability fizzle since there is no sliver to take the three damage. Thanks in advance!

I actually built a version of this deck but later changed it to have Jodah helm the deck. I agree with Shagreel but disagree with his selection. Run slivers that do things, like Gemhide Sliver , Manaweft Sliver , Necrotic Sliver , Harmonic Sliver , Constricting Sliver , Basal Sliver , Darkheart Sliver , or Psionic Sliver . if you are gonna go that route though slipping an Arcane Adaptation and Conspiracy may be worth your while.

Also I think there's a bug with your deck page, I can't seem to find Tamiyo, Field Researcher might want to get a mod to take a look at that lol.

First off thanks for the advice. I have been play mtg on and off for around 5 years, but have just now thought about competitive play. I just don't like making decks not themed some way lol. Aether Vial is a good idea didn't know it was a thing lol. Ancient Ziggurat I don't like that it wont help bring out my artifacts I agree with the legendary creatures (just didn't think about it), I cut them down to 1 each cause i can always use Homing Sliver to find them, Psionic Sliver is rather costly but i like it for cards like Ghostly Prison

Aether Vial and Ancient Ziggurat are both cards you might be interested in. Also, remember that legendary creatures are not good in multiples. So maybe consider cutting some of the copies of Sliver Legion and Sliver Hivelord. Lastly, modern is a very fast format, so maybe also consider lowering the average converted mana cost of your slivers by removing high costed cards like Psionic Sliver and putting in more low cost high impact cards like Sinew Sliver and Predatory Sliver

Great choice for your sliver commander! I know people like to use Hivelord for the indestructibility (but with exiling removal becoming more prominent its not as good as it seems) or Overlord for tutoring the same combos. Despite that I feel that the Queen is the strongest because she allows you to build your board without overextending.

Personally I feel that you should cut out all non-sliver creatures unless they provide something really unique to the game plan. I mean, Qasali Pridemage can be replaced with Harmonic Sliver. You can cut out your ramp creatures for land-based ramp since you are in green. Slivers are already susceptible to board wipes. Why exacerbate that with so many mana dorks?

You are also missing some MVP slivers. Venom Sliver and Toxin Sliver, Brood Sliver. Hibernation Sliver lets you protect choice slivers from wraths (including your commander!) I would actually use anthems to pump up your slivers, this way you can keep precious card slots for useful abilities. You don't need to waste slots on weenies cause your commander conjures them out of thin air.

The PWs may add an alternate route to victory but imo they don't really synergize with the sliver plan. Psionic Sliver can let your slivers one-shot a player. Thorncaster Sliver does something similar on attack. Leeching Sliver as well. If you add in the haste slivers, you can put in Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding as a powerful plan B.
