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

From a flavour stance, I am not overly fond of All Is Dust being in here. There are plenty of Damnation / Final Judgment / Languish effects that do not carry the lore baggage of Eldrazi.

Frenzy Sliver seems like it could be fairly terrifying with the token generation, without being so powerful as to make victory impossible.

Lymph Sliver is another that creates a relatively annoying, but not game-breaking effect.

Sidewinder Sliver and Toxin Sliver are pretty scary, making block choices more important and deadly.

Hooray for Slivers!

Actually, I also like Flanking ( Sidewinder Sliver ) because as an aggro player, I like it when my 1/1s trade up.

Darth_Savage I've finally managed to put this deck together IRL and will start playing it soon. I will hold off on accepting or passing on your suggestions until I've had some real world results. That said I do already happen to have a play set of Sidewinder Sliver and a couple of Two-Headed Sliver in a binder so if I do make the switch it will be quick and painless.

The only change I'd make is Sentinel Sliver to Two-Headed Sliver and Striking Sliver to Sidewinder Sliver, I think menace and flanking are probably more relevant than vigilance and first strike. Honorable mentions Metallic Mimic and Throne of the God-Pharaoh could work. Hope this helps, have fun brewing your deck.

Fun fact Sinew Sliver, Two-Headed Sliver and Sidewinder Sliver might be old but they are modern legal and honestly preferable to Thorncaster Sliver or Megantic Sliver. A good sideboard sliver would be Harmonic Sliver for obvious reasons. I'd also suggest Metallic Mimic, Throne of the God-Pharaoh and a couple of copies of Unclaimed Territory could be good.

Hope this is of help, have fun with your brew.
