I mean there's always Root Sliver . You can also include stuff like Prowling Serpopard or Vexing Shusher which, while not a sliver, can help.

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!

I have a few suggestions.

Ashnod's Altar can make you infinite mana with Sliver Queen's ability if you also have either Heartstone or Training Grounds in play. Phyrexian Altar can help you with mana fixing.

Acidic Sliver and Cautery Sliver for creature removal and potentially a direct damage table kill.

Swap Aura Shards for Harmonic Sliver.

Toss in Root Sliver.

Since you're in 5 colors you don't need Chaos Warp.

Since you are in Black consider adding in tutors (also green tutors for creatures).

Training Grounds would really make your slivers' abilities that much cheaper to activate.

For extra fast mana you can always run some mana dorks like Llanowar Elves or Birds of Paradise or run some spells that let you search for lands such as: Land Tax One with Nature Attune with Aether Caravan Vigil Lay of the Land Traverse the Ulvenwald Crop Rotation Rampant Growth Edge of Autumn Farseek Into the North Land Grant Sylvan Scrying Cultivate Far Wanderings Harrow Harvest Season Kodama's Reach Explosive Vegetation

LVL_666 and cdkime both of these ideas seems fine. I agree a sac ability like necrotic sliver seems like a sensible move. Means the sacrifice keeps things a little balanced. It could be argued that Root Sliver makes this idea redundant, but us hive players can sometimes lack the interaction with other spells. Means we have to go a little off flavour of the deck and pack it with your standard counterspells etc. This control sliver needs to happen :)

Thanks for the feedback, multimedia! In fact, I had already made a couple of inclusions in the deck but forgot to update it prior to deckcycling it. The edits have now been made, and yes, I included Cryptolith Rite and also added Horned Sliver, having taken out a few other slivers. I will consider expanding lands too; despite having good ramp, I do often find myself stuck with 5-7 lands most of the game.

Another thing I want to maintain is a fully permanents deck, with Primal Surge being the only non-permanent, meaning guaranteed a complete deck vomit wincon. But yeah, I wish I had boardwipes. haha

Root Sliver and Brood Sliver used to be in the deck but got sided since they rarely proved relevant, the former mostly because my group relies more on wiping than counters, but yes, I was considering putting it back in.

I will also throw in the Tri lands instead of the vivids and playtest a bit. Thanks to the number of any-color lands, rocks, and mana fixing with Manaweft, Gemhide, and Cryptolith, I use a vivid counter about 40% of games, and both in a single land about 5%. Ultimately, shock/fetch/fix lands are better, yes, but I'm hesitant about dropping $10 per land. lol

Again, thank you very much for your feedback! If you have any followup comments, feel free to drop them!
