Boza on Naya Slivers: Pauper

The problem with this is the mana base is horrible for this type of deck. 18 lands in three colors with 11 basics is not going to cut it, especially when you have 1-drops in every single color. I would go -4 metallic (slivers that do nothing are horrible), -4 virulent (it does next to nothing), + 2 plated, + 2 sidewinder (you need every single lord you can get, toughness lord and reverse lord are pretty decent) -4 striking (reducing the one-drops) + 3 lands + 2 Hive Stirrings + 3 Rancor (rancor is generally better than striking sliver)

Consider also Sentinel Sliver as it works well with the tap to deal 1 damage sliver.

Hello WelshGuitarist I might put the Wild Pair back in, I'm just not sure what I should put out for it. Chromatic Lantern is already in. Since I removed most of the slivers with activated abilities, I don't think Heartstone is very useful anymore. Sentinel Sliver is too weak on its own IMO, but I think I have one flying around somewhere, so I might test it out. Hibernation Sliver is probably pretty good in the format. I should really find a place for it. Intruder Alarm is too expensive money wise for the few combos I might be able to do with it. Kindred Discovery would be absolutely amazing in the deck but is also very expensive. If I put in a mana doubler, I would rather use Zendikar Resurgent , because it gives me cards to use the mana on as well. Thank you for the suggestions.

Hi there, fellow Sliver deck that started as PDS! I've been working on mine for a while now and your list differs from mine slightly but I feel certain cards help, a lot. For help Wild Pair and Kindred Discovery are good, they help with filling your board and filling your hand. Chromatic Lantern can help fix your mana, MVP for 5 colour decks IMO. Heartstone Came with PDS, so I have to ask why it's not in the list? Also a mana doubler like Mirari's Wake helps this deck take off. I've also been recommended Intruder Alarm in case you want to slap everything on the table on the end step before your turn to just win out of nowhere.

As for Creatures: Hibernation Sliver can help save you from being wiped out completely from a board wipe or even help make spot removal a waste of mana for your opponents. Sentinel Sliver is also a great addition, helps deter crackbacks from going all out with a Shifting Sliver on board.

Here is my Sliver deck, in case you wanted to check it out Evergrowing Slivers

Metallic Sliver is not modern legal, I would recommend Sidewinder Sliver in its place. With the amount of evasion you have ( Cloudshredder Sliver , Bonescythe Sliver , and Lavabelly Sliver ), I don't think you need the Bladeback Sliver , even if you were able to empty your hand of instants. if you are looking for somehting with a similar effect, you could use Cautery Sliver . anouther option would be to keep the Bladeback Sliver , and replace the Metallic Sliver with Sentinel Sliver , so you could attack, defend, and tap them for the extra damage at the opponents end step, as opposed to trying to balance all three

This deck is not as good as it could be.

Put simply due to the lack of slivers available and the fact you are limiting the colour's in your deck it will not be as effective as a 5 colour sliver deck which takes advantage of a lot more slivers

To fix your deck you need to add more slivers like

Lifelink Syphon Sliver

vigilance Sentinel Sliver

Deathtouch Venom Sliver

Make sure the land base has

4x Mana Confluence 4x Sliver Hive 4x Unclaimed Territory

you can check out my 5 colour deck here for some ideas

Gotta admit, this deck probably really only has two ways to go; either infinite mana or buff heavier. Now I could go for Sinew Sliver and Muscle Sliver inclusions and really make it more combat-focused and overwhelming in the early game or I go full in on the mana gimmick. So for now I decided to embrace the later one by going for one of the classics adding Mana Echoes .

cutting down on fat (stuff like Sentinel Sliver and Brood Sliver had to go), added a second Sliver Queen as well as a Patriarch's Bidding for consistency/power. The addition of Cautery Sliver allows to heal myself in a pinch as well as to turn sliver tokens into damage missiles and get rid of Slivers with detrimental effects.

The combination of Striking Sliver , Predatory Sliver , Venom Sliver , Cloudshredder Sliver seems to be a good way to include an alternate/more conservative wincon.

Unclaimed Territory is great, don't know how I could miss that before :) So xD

...and saving the best for last: The birds flew away...probably gone south or something. However...don't fret! Due to Swan Song in the SB we definitely won't lack in avian friends. ^_°

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