Shared Animosity Discussion
1 day ago
Ahem. So lets break down your question here, and i'll get right to answering it as best as I can:
"Im looking at the possibility of building a Sliver EDH deck (please dont hate). I dont know exactly what would be good tech for the deck."
So, when building a Sliver EDH deck know this: You are going . You have no other choice as all legendary slivers are 5 color. This is relevant only because you have to figure out the most expensive part of your deck which will be your landbase. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Lets look at your tech options:
Sliver Overlord is currently the most popular Sliver Commander/General, also it is the control oriented Sliver commander. If you pilot him, you should include cards that capitalize on it's second ability (i.e. Amoeboid Changeling and/or Unnatural Selection). Additionally, you would use cards that slow down the game as you would play a more attrition based strategy. I actually run this Commander, but I chose to build a midrage deck- the more "traditional" magic deck. Overlord works well in midrange as well as control, but it all depends on what appeals to you - do you want to lock down the game while you steadily populate the battlefield or do you want to ramp up and have a more flexible build that can win through different strategies?
Sliver Queen is the General for those who desire a combo win strategy. When the beautiful and incredible queen was first introduced, she was quickly paired with Heartstone + Ashnod's Altar. Such a lovely infinite sliver combo it was. But now, you have even more options in the form of Mana Echoes, Training Grounds or Basal Sliver + Heart Sliver + Gemhide Sliver. You get the idea. The best part however, is that Queen is so dynamic and incredible that she has been used as a general for non-sliver builds like superfriends. But i'm getting off track here. Queen decks are definitely the most competitive builds when it comes to Sliver EDH due to her being a combo piece herself, and thanks to the command zone you will always have ready access to her. On top of that, she makes blockers for next to no mana. There's a good reason why she's on the reserved list.
Now, certainly last but definitely not least you have both Sliver Legion and Sliver Hivelord making up the aggro based strats for Sliver EDH. These Generals may be simple, but they are incredibly powerful. The strategy would be rather simple with these two, as you would run alot of cards that ramp up the damage like Shared Animosity, Rancor etc. Quick little plays that add up quickly over time. If you have Sliver Hivelord in play, you could run alot more mass destruction. Oh, and true fact here: I a player outright scooped when I played Sliver Hivelord + Crystalline Sliver. Since you're running 5 color, you'll have access to all instance of them! Even better, look at the synergy between Ghostflame Sliver + All Is Dust. The slivers thought of everything at some point.
So really, that's a high level generalization of what directions you can go in when it comes to building a Sliver EDH deck. Please, let me know if you have questions as I'm always happy talk about Slivers.

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe
cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.
Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.
Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!
Good luck spreading vampirism!

With Explorers of Ixalan coming out soon, and being something I'm inclined to buy due to the different form of gameplay that I loved in Archenemy and Planechase type sets, I was wondering what the value of the set would be. We already saw it includes Regisaur Alpha, Aggravated Assault, Time Warp, Blatant Thievery w/ new art, Quicksilver Amulet, Threads of Disloyalty , Shared Animosity, etc, even w/o the rest of the decklists spoiled. It seems to have a lot of value right now, but it's high MSRP (near $60/$70 I think) will probably stop these cards from dropping very much. AM I right in this assumption or way off?

Indeed, Vanquisher's Banner is a little bit on the expensive side, but it has worked out for me expecially in the longer lasting games. But I understand the exclusion, expecially if the focus of your deck is laid more heavily on the early game aggro.
I have been looking at Shared Animosity and would love to include it if I'd be able to obtain a copy of it! Looks like one of those must-haves for tribal decks including red.
Mentor of the Meek sounds like an interesting addition, I'll have to try it out! I do believe I have a copy of it somewhere and it would indeed work well with both Edgars tokens and alot of the smaller vampires in the deck. I can totally see him working well, perhaps replacing some of the other card draw effects I've included.
Yeah, I also have been looking at Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle. However, I fear that the one single vampire token granted for the entire attack, no matter the amount of creatures put into it, won't pay of enough for it to make the cut. On the other side he is fairly cheap mana-wise and could help the deck pump out more aggressive power in the early stages of the game. Also, lifelink is always helpful. I think I'm gonna have to try him out if I get my hands on a copy!

Thank you, Erich_Zann! Yeah, originally I was going to go the Dictate/Grave Pact route, since edgar pumps out tokens. That is still a viable route for him for sure, but I've been enjoying the path of going wide and going tall with vamps. So I cut the sacrifice theme, as to have a many vamps as possible for cards like Shared Animosity and Sanctum Seeker.

I swapped out Blade of the Bloodchief for the heirloom blade. haven't played the heirloom blade yet but i think it keeps your hand filled. I'm not so convinced about Vanquisher's Banner. (Due to its high cost) Archangel of Thune if i ever get my hands on a copy will be replacing Sanguine Bond as i am not so found of the combo with it and find it a booring card in general.
Two cards i would suggest are:Shared Animosity high damage output!
Mentor of the Meek aldo not a vampire. works as good card advantage for me in a couple of games.
Untested card : Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle might have some potential. in your deck aswell?

I second the Shared Animosity suggestion. That card is bonkers. Cool vamps deck, dude!
