Sliver Overlord Discussion

Non-Linear on I Love Slivers

3 days ago

I love slivers but you need different ways to get them out of the graveyard. My sliver deck and every other sliver deck I have every played is very slow and is a massive target to every other player. I recommend Nissa, Vital Force , or a Grave Betrayal .

If you have your commander Cryptolith Rite is not a good card for this deck because you can tutor for two other cards with the same exact effect. Winged Sliver is a little redundant you already have two other slivers with flying. Thorncaster Sliver is very expensive and Leeching Sliver has almost the same effect.

I would also add a Paradox Engine for its completely broken power. Paradox Engine + Manaweft Sliver + Sliver Overlord + Heart Sliver = All slivers in your deck

Non-Linear I wanted Aura Shards in the deck as opposed to Harmonic Sliver because I run 14 artifacts and enchantments in the deck and Harmonic Sliver would force me to blow up my utility artifacts and enchantments too, where as Aura Shards lets me only blow up my opponents. I see what you were saying about Heartstone but I prefer Training Grounds because it only costs one mana instead of three and it reduces the cost of every sliver's ability to one instead of two. I think Crypt Sliver vs Clot Sliver is more personal preference, I thought an early game Crypt Sliver might not be as effective because if you only have a few slivers out and they have summoning sickness than it wouldn't do much good. I think there's a good argument for Heart Sliver instead of Blur Sliver but I think Blur works better for the deck because if my oppoents have a sliver deck then Heart Sliver could help them, where as Blur Sliver only helps me.

In regards to adding more infinite combos, I try to stay away from them for the most part because I enjoy playing the game, not just winning the game. My original plans for the deck had Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm in it but I just wasn't feeling it. I wanted to keep cards that I enjoyed playing and have never played before.

Some of the expensive cards I have in the deck are because they are helpful and provide value, such as The Immortal Sun and Volrath's Stronghold . Some of them are in the deck because I have never played them before and I think they could be good in the deck and fun to play, like Karn Liberated . I completely understand finding cheaper alternate cards but I want this to be my subjectively strongest EDH deck + one of my favs to play.

Thx for the feedback though, and I may consider building an infinite combo Sliver Overlord deck with some of the cards you mentioned.

Why is Sliver Overlord not the Commander? It can tutor for Sliver Queen when you've made infinite mana and then its the exact same thing. Sliver Overlord can also get you EVERY SLIVER IN THE DECK when you make infinite mana, you still get all the benefits of Sliver Queen , but you win on the spot with the Overlord guaranteed.

Hey I just got to say hkhssweiss that background looks amazing for you're Tuvasa the Sunlit deck. I would like to do something such as that for possibly my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice list and or Sliver Overlord at some point, but this level of coding is beyond me atm. When I have more time I will see if I can think of some suggestions for it, but for now I will leave an upvote.

_Delta_ on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

1 week ago

I play Sliver Overlord , and while voltron is not exactly my first thought at winning, it certainly is quite possible when you have a 7/7 that can gain a lot of keywords quickly when you search up Bonescythe Sliver , Shifting Sliver , Galerider Sliver , and play effects from Sliver Legion , Magma Sliver , etc.

Hey thanks for the upvote on my Sliver Overlord decklist, I'm still working on the mana base slowly for that deck. Atm I'm still missing a few shocks and fetches but with Ravnica allegiance being opened I should be able to get both a Blood Crypt and Steam Vents both soon and cheap. Then I need a couple fetches still like a Marsh Flats , Arid Mesa , Bloodstained Mire and Scalding Tarn (but I may skip Tarn just because of that price...). After those the deck is quite close to what I see as complete, since I never intended for it to be like 100% competitive, as my meta is likely in the 75% range at best, lower even depending on whom is playing.

Amoeboid Changeling would be my first suggestion, pair it with Sliver Overlord and it works very well. also, I would think about adding Sliver Hive to get some extra slivers and help with your mana base.

And sliver decks work best when you can get your creatures out as fast as possible, so maybe think about adding cards like Herald's Horn , Cryptic Gateway , Call to the Kindred , Descendent's Path or Kindred Summons to help pump out more Slivers

Manaweft Sliver is a lot better than Birds of Paradise becuase it gives all your slivers the ability to tap for mana, and Virulent Sliver is insanly good no matter what, making games shorter, Shifting Sliver and Crystalline Sliver are just overpowered, Ancient Ziggurat and Unclaimed Territory are really good lands, maybe include a Door of Destinies and a Beastmaster Ascension too. Also if i were you id include some larger slivers for some good late game boosts, like Megantic Sliver or Constricting Sliver , also either a Sliver Overlord or a Homing Sliver to get what slivers you need
