Shadow Sliver Discussion

PookandPie on The Sliver Legion

Hi there! Saw you liked Slivers, so I thought I'd stop by. Since your Commander is Sliver Legion and not Overlord, Hivelord, or Queen, it might be a good idea to run Frenetic Sliver. If someone board wipes (which is arguably a non-combo Sliver deck's largest weakness), Frenetic Sliver gives you a 50/50 chance to keep any creature you otherwise would not have been able to keep on board otherwise. Overlord can usually just tutor for Hivelord, Queen only really needs enchantments to win, and Hivelord has built-in Wrath resist. I think that Legion, the biggest, baddest, aggro-est one of them would need more ways to get around board wipes than the other Sliver Commanders. Frenetic Sliver can also be brought in with Collected Company, which is nice as well.

Taurean Mauler's slot could probably go to Frenetic Sliver, honestly. Sure, Mauler gets bigger, but with Legion, so does everything else. Is it really going to matter when your opponent is starting down a table of unblockable 10/10s if one of them is a 15/15? I don't imagine so, but that could just be me lol. Brood Sliver is also another alternative to be dropped- I took that one out of my list a long time ago because it was almost always win more and, if my board state wasn't already great, it did very little to help me during removal, counter spell, and sweeper-heavy games.

Shadow Sliver is great, but only good on kill turns. If someone fogs, destroys your Commander during combat (so your damage output is much less than anticipated and the opponent survives), you won't be able to block any creature that doesn't have shadow to stay alive. Horned Sliver gives trample for evasion and is much less risky for the same cost, for whatever that's worth.

There's my $.02 and an upvote from me, too.

It's CMC is 3, but Shadow Sliver would greatly help getting past a creature defense.

sepharus30 I was debating whether or not to put the shroud sliver in the deck and frankly it is still up for debate. however having 4 each of the Dormant Sliver and the Shadow Sliver gives the consistency of getting both out without having to search my deck for them, leaving my opponent unable to attack or defend with their slivers, while I am able to then attack with my other creatures.

The Metallic Sliver I'm not sure I understand why that would be useful in this deck. as if all the slivers on the field have shadow and defender it wouldn't be able to do anything?

I wouldn't play Homing Sliver, just way to slow and Screeching Sliver i would drop as well I can't imaging when I would ever board Screeching in. Telekinetic Sliver is also a hard sell, Shadow Sliver seems better.

Hidran, he's a good Sliver, but part of what's been making this deck tick has been my ability to commit to an attack fully, and still block/regenerate.

Shadow Sliver stops any kind of blocking.

+1 I have a similar deck in bant. found Shadow Sliver to be really cool.

I love the idea AGGRO but i just wasn't pursuing that here. I really want to find a consistent turn 4 Sliver Legion. That was my real goal with this deck, but I will make a copy of this and do an AGGRO version because AGGRO is really my favorite style of play.

I do like the idea of keeping the mana curve low on this deck though. Getting rid of the Bonescythe Sliver's and replacing them with Shadow Sliver's is an excellent idea.

Drop the artifacts completely. Drop the Hivelords. Buff Predatory and Sinew to 4. Add Shadow Sliver. Drop Bonescythe for two more Blur Sliver. Get a playset of Ancient Ziggurat and Mana Confluence / City of Brass. Virulent and Striking should be 4 of. Drop the Gemhides for it. Drop one of something else for another galerider. Getting a hand full of 1 drops, especially slivers, is never a bad thing.
