Shadow Sliver Discussion

Hello SHINOBIofFATE,

I love Slivers, and am more than excited to give you my two cents- however, I have a major pet peeve when it comes to deck descriptions, specifically the lack of a deck description which your page has. When you don't include a detailed description it's hard for me to get a feel for how you want to your deck to play. Plus, it'll be a big help for you as you can put some thought into how you want your Sliver deck to play...as Slivers are the most flexible tribe in all of magic (and for those of you who doubt that, or want to argue- fight me :P). So yeah, get your deck description right- here are some resources you can use to help you get started:

End Rant. So, onward onto actual suggestions. Since you're running Sliver Overlord you are going to go for a more control oriented deck. You'll likely want to focus on Slivers that help you keep a stranglehold on the board as you won't need any of the Lord Sliver s. They're simply irrelevant as you are rarely going to be swinging wide with this commander. I would just include the one Sliver Lord that actually matters: Sliver Legion .

  • Acidic Sliver - sacrificing Slivers is never ideal unless you are getting the better end of the deal. Sac-ing a Sliver to deal a paltry 2 damage isn't worth it. Cut.
  • Diffusion Sliver - doesn't really work in commander. Paying an extra to remove a pesky creature in Commander is hardly a tax. This card is only good in standard where you could play multiple copies of this card, and make that tax potentially or . Cut.
  • Morophon, the Boundless feels more like a win-more card - essentially it's a card that only helps you if you're already ahead. Cut.
  • Opaline Sliver - generally, you don't want your Slivers to be targeted at all by your opponents(hint Crystalline Sliver ) - not to mention this card is a total non-combo or non-bo with the previously mentioned sliver. Cut.
  • Shadow Sliver - losing the ability to block for evasion is a risky gamble. Since Overlord is the more Control oriented Sliver and doesn't really encourage an aggro play style this sliver will rarely afford you an advantage. You have better options for evasion in the deck already (in my opinion.) Cut.
  • Tempered Sliver - This Sliver only benefits you if you were playing a more aggro style deck - and also if you could play multiple copies. Getting a +1/+1 counter only if your slivers can hit the opponent is okay...but I think you could better use the card slot for something else. Cut.
  • Virulent Sliver - This Sliver is cute, but unfortunately doesn't offer much in the way of a valid alternate win option. Definitely another win-more card, as you'll need 10 separate instances of combat damage on each opponent. Honestly, that's not really feasible in my opinion - unless you had 4 of these in your deck. But alas, that is a Sliver that doesn't really benefit you. Cut.
  • Ward Sliver - This one i'm a little bit uncertain on as protection can be incredibly handy depending on the circumstance - but for ? That's a hefty asking price. I think you could put that mana to better use elsewhere. Cut.

So that's it for my recommendations regarding what Slivers to cut. As for the rest of you deck, i'll save those recommendations for when you can give me a bit more information on how you want your deck to play - are you looking for a more aggro play style? If so, i'd recommend Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Legion honestly - but that's for a later conversation. Look forward to your response - i'm always happy to see another Sliver deck - Chitinous Approval Ensues

Galerider Sliver is good, but it's expensive. Leeching Sliver is another good one, and a good anti-boardwipe one is Pulmonic Sliver. Shadow Sliver is good, since no one uses the shadow mechanic anymore. Another similar one is Shifting Sliver.

I would use Galerider Sliver if your using Winged Sliver same purpose just one mana less.

Paragon of Gathering Mists, Diffusion Sliver, Rattlechains, Shadow Sliver, Shifting Sliver and Kopala, Warden of Waves could help protect your commander and give additional abilities.

Hey, as a starting point for a budget Slivers deck this looks good.

My advice to make the deck more competitive includes four main suggestions: upgrade the Slivers, upgrade the manabase, take more advantage of indestructible and being able to within reason because of five colors play any budget supporting spell in Magic.

If this advice is helpful than I have more advice about upgrading the manabase, taking more advantage of indestructible and good support spells. Would you like me to continue with more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

And you dont need to:) basic lands could work just fine.

You could use some duel lands and cards like Mana Confluence and Ancient Ziggurat aren't that expensife.

You dont need Door of Destinies instead use Coat of Arms

i use Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial not only because there great cards, but the creatures play with it cant be counterd.

Swan Song is a good replacement for your sourcery's

You dont need 2 extra Gemhide Sliver add some extra +1+1 sliver like Sinew Sliver at least 4.

Another good card against blue controll would be Diffusion Sliver.

Shadow Sliver is good but i would swap them out for an extra Galerider Sliver and Striking Sliver Also you need 2 Sliver Hivelord angainst burn and bordwipe.

I actualy dont need the Sliver Legion its in basic just a coat of arms but i have them.

I dont know if you are from europe, but if you are the cards you need go realy cheap on Magic Card market.

Honestly, just finding slivers that fit your needs is always helpful.

Evasion is always nice -
Galerider Sliver
Winged Sliver
Shifting Sliver
Much more risky Shadow Sliver

Sliver Lords:
Muscle Sliver
Might Sliver
Sinew Sliver
etc

Tools -
Homing Sliver
Hibernation Sliver, especially useful for saving slivers that are targeted.
etc

And my favorite combo piece and honorary sliver, Amoeboid Changeling is a must. He makes opponents threats into slivers and Overlord can steal them.

As a sliver EDH player, I can tell you that tons of slivers will be useful, but the ones I said are the ones I often tutor for, along with, as Mind said, good old Meathooks, Crystaline sliver.
