Sinew Sliver Discussion

DarkRequiem on RainbowSliver (Vintersorg Cover, Slivers ov Metal)

2 weeks ago

The lack of card tags makes your post hard to read. :(

Chromatic Lantern - I know. When I posted this deck I wasn't sure if I had one available and was with little spare time to check. I do and I will add it.

Darksteel Ingot and Manalith - Sound too expensive (CMC) and I'm unsure I'll need them.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves - Again, unsure I'll need them. Crystalline Sliver sounds way better.

Swords - Don't have them. Also, I don't think that a sliver deck needs them.

Sensei's Divining Top - That's adding insult to injury. I might add it.

Obelisk is part of the deck since day 1. :P

Coat of Arms - That's a card that fits the "redundancy" type of card. I might (most surely will) add it. I'm just unsure if I should run Coat or Door.

Training Grounds - Unfortunately I don't have a spare one. That's the only reason I'm not using it.

Kodama's Reach and Cultivate - Fun but it would depend on my final build. The manabase will be deeply revamped and I don't know how many (if any) basic lands will be included.

Patriarch's Bidding and Living Death - True, I'm not playing recursion as is. Something I'll have to change. I'm not sure if I have any of these 2 available though. But there are other options.

Shapers' Sanctuary and Call to the Kindred - I find Kindred Discovery and Rhystic Study far superior. If anything I'd add Kindred Summons. Shaper's even worse with Crystalline Sliver in the deck.

Bribery - None available. Not sure I'd want it in here either.

Amoeboid Changeling - Cute... Just unsure if I prefer that or Unnatural Selection which is on the deck. Ok. Selection can't be tutored and requires 1 mana... And... With Intruder Alarm the Changeling is better. I'm sold on that.

Sinew Sliver, Predatory Sliver and Muscle Sliver- The pump is minor. I'd prefer stuff that gives better pump.

Diffusion Sliver - I prefer Root Sliver.

Clot Sliver - I was considering either Clot or Sedge Sliver. Sedge sounds better but it will have to depend on my ability to produce black mana. I need to playtest to check which I prefer. Sedge takes that slot for now.

Acidic Sliver - It's either this or Cautery Sliver... In a deck that might explode into infinite slivers, I might prefer Cautery.

Hibernation Sliver - It saves slivers, yes. It's on my sideboard from the start. I might add it, yes.

Ward Sliver - Taking the place of Shifting Sliver, yes.

Pulmonic Sliver - Is in right from the start.

Might Sliver - Might very well be added.

Fury Sliver - Bonescythe Sliver is better.

Hunter Sliver - Is on my maybe but am a bit unsure if I want to use it.

Crypt Sliver - Again, Sedge sounds better.

Thanks! :)

Yes, when you have the whole Magic spells available to you, cutting them to 100 cards (lands included) is a pain! This deck, although trying to make it fun will hardly ever see gameplay. When I show up a sliver deck my group will make a target. So I'll try to make it memorable for the few games where I bring it on. :)

Looks like your deck could use a little help. First I'd add sets of Sliver Hive and Unclaimed Territory to make your mana work a little easier. A set of Cavern of Souls would also help, but they're pretty expensive right now so I wouldn't fault you for not getting them. Next, I'd max out on 4-of the best slivers: Predatory Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, and I'd consider Sedge Sliver as well (you already have 4 Sinew Sliver, which is great!). Your 2x Spinneret Sliver and 2 of your Venom Slivers can be replaced with Galerider Sliver since flying is better than reach and lets your team get through more often. I'd cut the Diabolic Tutors since they're too slow for an aggressive deck like this and replace them with 2x Dismember and another Aether Vial if you can find one. If you really want the tutoring effect, 1 or 2 Homing Slivers would be better anyway.

If you'd like to see my Sliver deck, take a look here: Slivers beat Merfolk!

Happy hunting!

Oops I meant Sinew Sliver obviously.

I have a sliver deck as well & will make a few suggestions if i may? Crystalline Sliver is by far the best sliver ever printed, imo, but he is not legal in Modern- & the next best thing is Diffusion Sliver! Diffusion Sliver &/or Opaline Sliver are crucial to playing slivers, since targeted removal is a sliver-deck's greatest enemy.. & unlike many sliver-abilities, their abilities actually stack, so with 2 Diffusion Slivers in play, a Path to Exile or Fatal Push or Lightning Bolt would cost FIVE mana just to take out one of your slivers.. I see you have 2 Diffusion Sliver, but since he is so important to keep your engine going, i personally prefer to run 3 of them (they are not aggressive enough to run 4x though, imo). Sentinel Sliver is amazing, & i would recommend 2x in every sliver deck! You can even attack, then use tapping abilities during 2nd Main Phase, effectively giving you a 2nd turn in comparison to running without him. Megantic Sliver is a total game-changer, and i have found 2x Megantic to be very very good. I run 4x Manaweft to be able to cast him, though, plus 1x Gemhide Sliver. Groundshaker Sliver is pretty bad.. I think Battering Sliver is actually better, but he is pretty bad too, imo.. I would cut them in fvor of Megantic Sliver. For a mana-base, 4x Sliver Hive is worth every penny, and 4 Ancient Ziggurat is nearly the same thing for about $1 (that is if you cut some of the sorceries, which i would personally cut all of them in favor of more slivers!). I think Spinneret Sliver is pretty terrible when you could be running Galerider Sliver as a 1-drop with a better ability. Predatory Sliver should be a 4-of, as should Sinew Sliver, which i am surprised to not see here. With 4x Venom Sliver, i would definitely recommend running at least 2x each of Striking Sliver & Bonescythe Sliver!! Another good card to run with the deathtouch is Quilled Sliver, though i wouldn't run more than 1-2 since his targets are limited to attacking/blocking creatures. Blur Sliver is ok, but i have found that cutting him is better- by the time you cast him, you should have other slivers in play, and every single sliver gives its ability to every other sliver, with or without the haste. I would rather give the slivers already in play more abilities instead of giving the cards yet to be played the ability to do the SAME THING as all the other slivers one turn earlier . Since it doesn't help with Predatory/Sinew's ability, i would cut Hardened Scales in favor of something like Collected Company. Harmonic Sliver is a must-have sideboard card, and i run 1x in my mainboard as well. Remember that Virulent Sliver has POISONOUS 1, not Infect- what this means is that your pump spells don't add any additional poison counters to your opponent; each sliver will only give them one poison counter when it connects (unless the pump is from Double Strike! More reason to play Bonescythe Sliver! That would double the poison counters as well). Anyways, sorry for the rant, but hopefully I've given you some ideas! I love slivers!! A couple more fun slivers as 1-ofs are Pulmonic Sliver and Telekinetic Sliver.. so many awesome abilities! Check out my Slivershod deck! My nephew played my Sliver deck against me with my Zombie deck and ended up swinging at me with 150+ damage at once, with Flying, Deathtouch, Double Strike, Lifelink, Indestructible, & a Diffusion Sliver!! That just shows how insanely out of hand they can get if they go un-checked. Good luck!

Add Mutavault and move to shock lands with Swamps in them Godless Shrine, look into Verdant Catacombs also with mana fixing

I'd also look into getting 4 of each sliver lord Sedge Sliver Predatory Sliver and Sinew Sliver, works great for extra damage with Collected Company or Aether Vial

Most games I play with mine, I've main boarded 4 Necrotic Sliver and 3 Diffusion Sliver, it makes removal a breeze for you and almost impossible against your opponent.

Blur Sliver is also a great addition, combos with Manaweft Sliver to drop your hand and/or swing hard

Forkbeard on Sliver Overlord: Slivers Gone Wild

Thanks for the lengthy comment + feedback GMD_1090, I appreciated the advice! Here's my stream of consciousness thoughts on the suggestions...

Opaline Sliver is decent, but it's card draw effect is conditional on my slivers being targeted. Sure it's a handy deterrent, but it kind of goes against what I want to be doing with the deck (e.g. getting Crystalline Sliver out). Dormant Sliver comes into play when I'm ready to assemble the pieces and draw my deck FTW. He's an awesome combo piece and the defender factor is irrelevant because he'll be sac'd or bounced when the time is right (see the 'shenanigans' portion of the deck description for more detail there).

Animar, Soul of Elements is an amazing card and general, but seems unnecessary. The minor cost reduction is nice, but my avg. CMC is already pretty low and my ramp options are working out as is. He'd just be a beater with no evasion that doesn't synergize with the rest of the deck. Even though she's off theme, Bloom Tender is a great mana dork. If I had one kicking around, I'd consider slapping it in here.

You know, you're not wrong about the mini-lords. The more the deck evolves, the more they're not really necessary. I will definitely consider replacing Muscle Sliver + Sinew Sliver.

I used to run Thorncaster Sliver in here but ended up removing him in favour of combo sliver options. In my experience he wasn't that effective and if Sliver Queen is out, odds are I'm going to be combo'ing without the need for the thorn plings.

I also used to run Magma Sliver and although he looks great on paper, in practice he wasn't so powerful and I could never make good use of him. Firewake Sliver's secondary ability is irrelevant - he's in here for redundancy as another haste enabler.

I like your idea of Dictate of Erebos! I hadn't thought of that card in this deck...Interesting.

Cryptolith Rite is an awesome card and is already in here. Prismatic Omen is also great, but I ended up swapping it out at some point thanks to having an abundance of colour fixing in here already.

I've been playing the deck for years and have the strategies pinned down. Over time it's evolved from a 'go wide' aggro sliver horde to more of a combo oriented deck. Beyond the amazing synergy of the sliver tribe, the thing I like most is the sheer variety in the deck - lots & lots of evil ways to take out your opponents. I still enjoy fine tuning it and I definitely appreciate the opportunity to talk about different deck ideas/philosophies so thanks for that!

Like, I don't get why you aren't just playing the good ones? Muscle Sliver. Sinew Sliver. Predatory Sliver. Each of those is better as a 4 of than a 2/2 changling.

Have you seen the proper Meathooks 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.
