Last_Laugh Its even better when Sliver Hivelord is flashed out with Quick Sliver to put an end to all this Extinction nonsense.

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!

When do you bring in Quick Sliver ?

Hey all, thanks for the comments.

  • Flooremoji, I'm not sure if Sundial of the Infinite works with this hypothetical sliver, but I don't see why it wouldn't. When activated, Sundial does have you bypass the end step. I designed this sliver to essentially reach out beyond the typical design space for slivers towards a Derevi Creature toolkit Archetype.

  • Ugin420, i'm considering this sliver for all formats. IF this were to get printed, then it wouldn't be by itself -that's for sure. Quick Sliver could come right alongside it. Question for you - what hypothetical ETB slivers should be printed to help this hypothetical Sliver?

  • dbpunk, In my opinion Skybind is just a bad card, and I wouldn't want to water down this hypothetical sliver's design. It's meant to lend itself to more than just slivers. The Harmonic Sliver ability has it's own draw backs anyway - as it doesn't have a "may" clause and could destroy it's controller's enchantments and artifacts.

Flooremoji: Quick Sliver isn't modern legal and i don't think "slide sliver" would be good enough for legacy.

Slide sliver here would only be good with slivers that had ETB effects, of which i can only find 5 in the whole game. and of those 5, the only one thats any good is Harmonic Sliver . harmonic and slide could loop each other to ensure a player can destroy another artifact/enchantment each turn, but that combo isn't worth the deck space. sideboard space is already too restricted.

Hmm, could become a problem with Quick Sliver and Aether Vial because nobody likes have less lands temorarily. Does this also work with Sundial of the Infinite ? I can't tell if it's a delayed triggered ability or not.
