Sentinel Sliver

Creature — Sliver

Sliver creatures you control have vigilance. (Attacking doesn't cause them to tap.)

Sorry for the late reply but more copies of Sinew Sliver or Sentinel Sliver are good options.

For the swarm!

Recently I've play tested the deck more and have decided to change some things about the list and the guide.

  • Strategically, I would actually like to correct myself and suggest that in a wrath heavy meta, it is CRUCIAL to wait for your protection pieces before going off with The First Sliver UNLESS you are certain you can kill people then and there. Sometimes you'll find it very difficult to recover if you over extend.

  • Also, after a few games with my friend (and some very explosive wins out of no where) they have caught on to the fact that they NEED to kill first sliver as soon as they see it. Hence, I have opted to include MORE pieces of protection, e.g. Diffusion Sliver and Unsettled Mariner .

  • Additionally, something I'd like to take out is Harsh Mercy . I'm not sure if its purely because I'm incredibly unlucky or not, but this card has been turning up at in the wrong situation as well as ending my cascades. By wrong situation, i mean this: when I'm 1v1 facing another tribal deck, I cascade into it and it does nothing. When me and other aggro decks team up together to take down a wrath deck, it kills everyone's creatures and slows our plan down. I'd like to replace it with Equilibrium as it's something that can stay on board and be used whenever necessary.

  • Other cards I've opted to include recently are: Synapse Sliver and Sentinel Sliver + ways to make the deck more consistent including: Congregation at Dawn and Hollowhead Sliver . Having tested the deck more, I've realised that consistency is key, particularly when it come to needing protection pieces.

Updates to both the guide and list coming soon!

I guess. This list still feels weird with its lack of Phantasmal Image , over something weak like say Sentinel Sliver . Is the mana just too hard for that? There must be something better than Sentinel Sliver , it just seems awful.

Thanks austintayshus. Never thought to add Dormant Sliver since it seemed too risky to need removal in hand that gets around indestructible. Very familiar with Beast Whisperer and will likely be adding that in the next iteration, just too much value there.

I've cut Sentinel Sliver to make room for other effects but agree that it's underrated, especially with these indestructible slivs.

I'm looking forward to adding some of these Modern Horizons slivers

Fun deck! +1

I also have a sliver deck and one of my favorites is Dormant Sliver . Keeps the cards coming and when you're ready to attack you can sacrifice it to Necrotic Sliver . You may also want to add Beast Whisperer for the card draw, even though it's not a sliver.

I think vigilance is an underrated keyword, which is why I also recommend Sentinel Sliver .

Hi there,

We're happy to help! Teferi's Veil could definitely work. In our deck it would clash with both Sentinel Sliver and Intruder Alarm though, as these allow us to have our attackers function as blockers as well; phasing them out after combat would prevent such use.
