Unclaimed Territory and Sliver Hive would be great for the mana base. Awesome concept! +1

With a well balanced sliver deck, that should never be the case. Most if not all of your lands should be capable of producing 2+ colors, with the exception of some fetches. Cavern of Souls and Sliver Hive provide easy multicolored mana, and once you get a Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver out you will be fine anyway. With adding the other 2 colors, it gives slivers more versatility in how explosive it is that you just cant get with only having 3 colors.

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!

Relentless5,
Thanks for the info on Cavern!

On the match-ups, I'm on Infect and Ponza, and though I absolutely love both I'm looking at branching out, and wanted to try something very Creature-based. I've looked at a bunch of CoCo/Vial decks and keep coming back to Slivers. I guess I'm really just hoping it's strong against some of the decks to which Infect and Ponza are weak ... some examples are RW Burn, UR Storm, and a number of fast-and- wide Creature decks like 8-Whack, BG Elves, Merfolk, and Mono-W D&T.

That's too bad on Colossus. GDS is still huge in my meta, and I was hoping it would be playable. Even with Sliver Hive and the Caverns, huh?

Thanks again!

Also Sliver Hive and Cavern of Souls outperforms that land in this setup. =)

Hi! First of all cool theme!

These are the cards I would put in and why:

Why are you not running Sliver Hive?? This card is a staple for slivers. I also think that your list lacks ways to actually hit face, Shifting Sliver should work perfectly with your gameplan. Maybe, instead of Sliver Queen you could run Sliver Hivelord, since he has an better effect overall. Sliver Legion is also nuts if you have a strong board. Harmonic Sliver is also a must have to handle enchantments or artefacts. For card draw I would play Dormant Sliver, if you have drawn enough with you slivers you can sac him to Acidic Sliver or Necrotic Sliver. Instead of Patriarch's Bidding I would play Pulmonic Sliver, more slivers ftw!! and last I would play Crypt Sliver over Sedge Sliver, you already have some "buff" slivers and the tap ability is faster than the mana ability.

Still gotta say cool deck! I would love to play against slivers some day (never encountered one)

Awesome deck! I love Sliver Legion, Sinew Sliver, Sedge Sliver, and Predatory Sliver being used to strengthen your other slivers. Also, I like your land choices and Manaweft Sliver also being used to get all five colors needed for this deck. However I recommend Sliver Hive be used so you can get both mana and slivers if you need. Also, I recommend Diffusion Sliver in your sideboard if you are going against a control deck. I will be adding Sliver Legion to my sliver deck.+1 upvote!
