Sliver Hivelord Discussion
17 minutes ago
Lucky_Dutch thanks for the feed back! This is one of the 1st decks I created and it has been awhile since I updated it. I could move towards faster lands, although I have never been a fan of the fetches. I think you are right about Muddle the Mixture and Brainstorm. Rhystic Study and Sensei's Divining Top are solid replacements.
As for the play style of the deck. It focuses heavily on ramp so you can tutor for Sliver Hivelord, Crystalline Sliver and sometimes Root Sliver. With Sliver Hivelord coming into play, pretty much every game, it is a lot harder for your creatures to die. So the recursion doesn't have to be as extravagant. Volrath's Stronghold, Phyrexian Reclamation and Pulmonic Sliver usually get the job done. Also the deck doubles up on the slivers that have great effects. So if I lose one another is there to fill its place.

Ghostway is not a bad choice with the abundance of board wipes in EDH, but its conditional... I have a very similar deck, but I switched my commander to the Sliver Hivelord to prevent shuffling my deck 1000 times and to nullify most board wipes... Cyclonic Rift and any exile wipes still suck though.

nice,mana doe the trick:)
with the changeling you can turn a creature your opponent controlls into a sliver an gain control of it with the hivlord. best thing is it stays under your controll permanently.

You definitely want to be running 4x Aether Vial here. Sliver Hivelord is sweet as a one/two-of, but Sliver Legion, not so much for modern. You also want to be running quite a few more lands with those 4 and 5 drops you are playing. I'd recommend some Mutavaults highly. Striking Sliver is mediocre, as is Sentinel Sliver and Venom Sliver. I'd cut down one/two-ofs of those guys, as you also don't want to have too many of them.
Slivers you should definitely run: Sedge Sliver, Diffusion Sliver, Darkheart Sliver. Sedge provides you with another lord and regenerates your slivers. You definitely want a 4 of him, along with a few shocks and fetches mainboard to get swamps. Diffusion Sliver is great vs removal, which almost every modern deck will have, and makes all your dudes significantly harder to deal with. Darkheart Sliver is good for the burn matchup, but you don't want to run too many mainboard, probably just 2.

That's what i originally thought as well, but the deck searching ability of Sliver Overlord makes him worth it. With him I can just grab Sliver Hivelord, as well as whatever other sliver I need at any given moment.

Hey thanks, Ya the mana base is really tricky in 5 color as you already know. So getting this out of the way right now we already know blood moon is gg now that said I really enjoy my rainbow land base.
You get to play this deck as if it was mono color and that's super fun! The only bad hand being 1 land that's Reflecting Pool but one land is kinda iffy anyways.
Right now this deck has a great ramp that looks like this.
Turn 3: land or not you have 5 - 6 mana of any color this will let you run out 3 lords or 1 lord and a 3 drop or Sliver Hivelord
I like that you get to run Sedge Sliver the 4th lord, I cant really make him work in this deck because trying to get a basic swamp would be too hard to line up.
3 Diffusion Sliver is a must with jund and other heavy interactive decks.

I do hope The Professor's prediction comes true, I never was playing magic at the time of Dominara even though I do know a lot of the lore now.
I never got to play with slivers early on. I only discovered slivers about 3 years ago (Started magic at around Journey into Nyx and mainly played with a lot of theros stuff first) when I had a friend who happened to have some m14 slivers and I one day I traded for some such as a Galerider Sliver and 2 much older Russian Sidewinder Slivers who he originally got from someone else I think. I didn't even know at the time that there was more older ones but I found these interesting and wanted the ones he had.
Later on when where I lived actually got a game store that opened and had started to doing Fnms had I found out from two people the format of commander who both owned Sliver Overlord edh decks that there were more slivers. At this point I was practically already playing with a commander deck lol, as my casual magic deck was a deck featuring cards like Prophet of Kruphix, Heroes' Bane, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Horizon Chimera, and a bunch of other things. This became later my first commander deck with Vorel of the Hull Clade (Now it's an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck with Vorel still in it btw) and I started to also plan a Sliver Overlord deck.
One of the two I mentioned at my lgs even in time decided to sell his sliver overlord deck because he never got to play it enough, so I traded for some older slivers like Sinew Sliver, Brood Sliver, Fungus Sliver, and a couple others he had. He however wanted to keep Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hivelord.
I have my own Sliver Overlord, and Sliver Hivelord now but I still need to in time buy the others. Then I got to acquire some of the lands to finish my deck. I regret earlier trades that I have done however, use to have a Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath,Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Steam Vents and Temple Garden but I traded them all away thinking I wouldn't need them, and I sure was very wrong. It was rather silly of me still being new to the game sort of then.
Like I even opened at one point a Windswept Heath expedition not knowing it's entire value but I sleeved it still because they looked nice. I later discovered and sold it for store credit at a store and bought a bunch of cards with it like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, I think you get the point. All these big splashy cards to go into my casual magic decks to use on my friends. Then I later when I started playing magic a bit more seriously it rather sucked to realize I had no use for them in standard or modern or wanted to use them for edh any longer. That store even had Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen but I didn't yet know about slivers :(
Going to now anyways buy them next once I first open a bunch of Amonkhet for standard stuff perhaps. Although it would be nice to see a reprint for the Sliver Legion. The next set after Amonkhet however though has turned out to be one called Ixalan I think it was spelled? This looks to be a mesoamerican inspired plane so there's no hope for slivers in September/January. More likely will get a few merfolk instead is my guess. However maybe the block after in the summer could be dominara? I would live to see slivers as first of all I would enjoy playing them in standard as I never got to do that earlier. Then anything for edh would be awesome. Currently have my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Sliver Overlord although the lands are fairly budget, and Athreos, God of Passage for my edh decks. I am trying to upgrade them all slowly over time as I'm as well upgrading my very costly modern infect deck (Need Noble Hierarch playset and 5 more green related fetchlands) and a little before that my b/g delirium deck for standard (rather absurd its more than my Atraxa deck in $ right now thanks to a playset of Grim Flayer, Liliana, the Last Hopes, Blooming Marsh, and what not making it like over $470 I believe, use to be a bit more value but it's falling). As you can see I'm trying to slowly upgrade rather a lot of things even though my standard I'm happy with for now, but I do hope to finish Slivers maybe by the fall is my guess?
Now if you thought you were ranting then that is nothing compared to all of this! This is much worse so I do apologize. (Longest TappedOut comment I have made I think in the little more than a year on here now lol).

marcus1679 thanks for your input and upvote, the hive is most pleased. I share your concerns about Crystalline Sliver, that's why I kept the number of Slivers with targeting based abilities down to a minimum - there's only Crypt Sliver and Amoeboid Changeling in the deck. Ideally, i'd like to have Magma Sliver in the deck, but due to the high likelihood of Crystalline Sliver being in play I decided against it.
The combo between Amoeboid Changeling and Sliver Overlord is amazing, but it's not essential to me getting a wincon...so it's worthwhile to keep. Crypt Sliver is just good to have in case I don't have Crystalline out on the field. One of the best synergies in the deck however, is Crystalline Sliver and Sliver Hivelord - Indestructible AND shroud? yes please. If only there were a well crafted sliver that also had/shared the ability of hexproof. One can only dream...
