Quick Sliver Discussion

How do you gents feel about Rewind taking one of the 'counterspell' slots? My thought is that it can enable mana to still be used on a tutor from Sliver Overlord, or some other sliver shenanigans like Quick Sliver or some other cheeky interaction

Wicker, Seedborn Muse has excellent synergy with Quick Sliver and is definitely a worthy inclusion (especially when Prophet of Kruphix is still banned). Slotting in Muse over Homing Sliver comes down to what's more important to your deck: Do you want increased consistency by having another tutor option when you can't get your commander out? Or Do you want to have an additional avenue of play by untapping your permanents between each turn?
I found my answer, as my inner vorthos is not keen to including non-slivers in this deck. But i'm curious as to what conclusion you will/have arrived at.

So I played this deck twice at about 78% completion and I'm loving it so far! The only thing I ran into is when using Sliver Overlord's ability after using Amoeboid Changeling with Crystalline Sliver in play, how are you getting around that? I've been trying to keep Quick Sliver and Hibernation Sliver so I can bounce Crystalline out for 2, and then flash it back in if I need to respond to a threat being cast. I was just curious whether there was a better way or not.
Also, is there a specific card you would recommend swapping out for Unnatural Selection?

I have found Ward Sliver to be a useful fetch-from-the-toolbox Sliver, especially if you already have flash going for you via Quick Sliver . Answers Pestilence effects, green fight mechanics, and those looking to Blasphemous Act away your Sliver line.

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.

Hey Daevied, thanks for the compliment and i'm honored that you would use my deck as a basis for your own. I can't wait to see how your preferences and style will guide you toward your ideal vision of the Hive.
What would be the cards in the list that could be exchanged depending on my meta? - Daevied
Tough question. As for the cards that I would recommend are meta-flexible, well...i'll give a few ideas I guess.
- Quick Sliver - Quick is meant to give you additional flexibility when you are playing at a table with alot of interaction. A player with an itch tap finger can be extremely annoying...especially when they see you in the lead, and leave up some of their mana before your turn begins. If you don't have that problem, then you could slot this one out. OR, if you have more than one annoying player you could slot this in for Root Sliver .
- Sliver Overlord - If you have a meta that is cEDH - only, then well...this Sliver as a commander simply won't be able to compete in first place on a consistent basis. My deck as it is built can hang with some of those decks, but it was never intended to run ahead of the pack in that kind of meta. If you want to make a truly "Sliver themed" cEDH deck, then you need to pilot The First Sliver + Food Chain or maybe Sliver Queen Combo.
- Lands - The most expensive part of this deck are the lands. Honestly, you don't need to have Original Duals and Fetches to have a consistent manabase. If you have a slightly more relaxed meta, you could opt for the Mirage Fetchlands. As for duals, you could snatch up the recently reprinted Shocklands. Utility lands like Gaea's Cradle can be swapped out basics (trust me, it's good to have them - especially when someone in your meta decides to run Blood Moon in a 5 color deck...jerk)
Btw, you can combo Hibernation Sliver , Lavabelly Sliver , and Morophon, the Boundless with any lifelink sliver .p - Daevied
I saw a different use for Lavabelly Sliver in the form of Sliver Queen + Lavabelly Sliver + Basal Sliver - Infinite ETBs = Infinite "Drain for 1" effects. Morophon 's aesthetic just didn't vibe with me, and I won't include it in any of my builds - but I do see the combo potential. Honestly, First Sliver's Chosen caught my eye, and i've been curious as to what I could do with it. Any thoughts? Oh, and thanks for commenting on my page, and thanks again for the compliments. Good luck in your build!
