LVL_666 on I Make Theme Songs for ...

Gattison, the deck is ALL about Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord merely has the pleasure of being her herald :) As for a specific song in mind? I haven't thought of anything at the moment. Well one of my favorite songs of all time is Faith No More - Epic Maybe you could use that as a basis? Oh, and another favorite Faith Song of mine is We Care Alot

LVL_666: Well, Sliver, by Nirvana... obviously =P

or I'm Bad, by Micheal Jackson...

or maybe something by Public Enemy...

And lucky for you it's only $0,000,000 per song. =D

Did you have any ideas for a song you want parodied? is there a key card or combo you'd like me to focus on (besides the obvious Sliver Overlord)? Do you have any sayings or phrases you find yourself using a lot when playing this deck? Or maybe something your hear opponents say about your deck a lot?

LVL_666 on The Queen's Egg

M4RK0G91, thank you for the high words of praise. I'm grateful that you appreciate my deck, and the page that chronicles it's life. Your English by the way is excellent, I wouldn't have guessed it was a second language for you. I first met slivers way back in Legions - I was playing my 2nd deck ever: Mono blue Wizards. I played against my friend who assembled a rainbow sliver deck. I lost every single game I ever played against it, and after my 4th or 5th loss straight, I couldn't help but admire the synergy of slivers.

Fast forward roughly 10 years, and now i'm married and facing all sorts of adult responsibilities. I don't have kids yet, so I chose to get back into magic. My awesome wife bought me the custom hand made "Queen's Egg" as a complete surprise. She knew that I was talking to Liefkicker Studio about getting a custom made deckbox, as his work is simply amazing. She told the artist to lie to me, saying that he couldn't take commissions at the time. You could only imagine my surprise when I received a mysterious package a few months later. My wife is the best.

As for Sliver's real. A lot of younger EDH players have absolutely no idea what Slivers are...or heard of them but never had a chance to face a sliver deck. But I can assure you by the end of the game they are definitely aware of the might of slivers...and typically are relieved the game was over lol. The players that do know what Slivers are generally groan the second I reveal my commander. If i'm in a multiplayer game with said previously mentioned player(s) they will try their best to convince everyone at the table that i'm the biggest threat...even with no slivers on the board lol.

This will be a multipart response, as I've yet to play Tiny Leaders. But i'll give you a full response after I do a little bit of learning on my part. Thank you again for the nice words, the Queen is most pleased.

P.S. - If you have one magic deck that you are really fond of, I highly suggest you look at Liefkicker's website website and inquire about buying a deckbox. I'm not going to lie...they are expensive, but worth every single dollar. Recently, he made a variant on the Queen's Egg themed after Sliver Overlord that was for sale on ebay. His work is beautiful, and of the highest quality. His site is definitely worth checking out.

viperfang4 on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

I would like to nominate Sliver Overlord for tier 1 or 1.5. He can run Food Chain like Tazri. Here is my build: Slivers...The Top of the Food Chain. It is Shaper's Food Chain Tazri list with 5 cards changed and runs near identically. It is slightly worse since tazri has 3 great targets for wincons in Hagra Diabolist, Kalastria Healer, and Halimar Excavator. Overlord has 2 in Acidic Sliver and Cautery Sliver, but Laboratory Maniac (which is already in the deck as it's own wincon with library exile) gives Food Chain 2 more wincons for Overlord in Dormant Sliver and Mnemonic Sliver. I am kind of surprised no one realized Overlord could do this near identically to Tazri until I did over the weekend, but it is now known to all. While the Queen's Egg primer for the sliverball deck is fantastic, this list is way better and needs to go in over it. Happy Brewing.

Welcome everyone! You are all a testament to the amazing community we have her on TappedOut. I called for help, you all answered. My cup overfloweth.

MegaMatt13 - Thanks for the comment! Yeah I think I will be putting more plains in. That will also help if I decide I want Emeria Shepherd as well. Nim Deathmantle is great but the mana ramp required just seems to expensive to for me atm, so I'm straying away from it for now. Molten Primordial may be a good finisher and yeah, Sun Titan is going in. I'm at least putting Gratuitous Violence in soon, not sure I like the double edged sword of the others. I stay away from them because of my brother's Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. And I like the tucking/exiling board wipes because of my friend's sliver deck. Thanks again!

jwe94 - Double dipping commenting ;) Thanks! I like Flayer of the Hatebound. The rest don't really seem worth it. Stalking Vengeance used to be in here but I found it's too slow/costs too much. Thanks again!

Oloro_Magic - Thanks for stopping by! Bonehoard looks neat and Moltensteel Dragon could be great as I'll usually have a lot of life. I'll try em out! the rest are either too expensive(looking at you, Chandra), or just don't seem like the best fit. Appreciate you commenting!

zandl - I like all those lands, I'll add them in eventually. Sun Titan is going in. Universal damage doublers are too risky with my brother's Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. Gratuitous Violence will find a place though. Thanks a lot!

TheHamster - Hi again! Just figured you'd like to see the progress! You were my first commenter hahaha! I'm pretty happy with what it's become. Thanks!

landofMordor - Thanks for the comment friend! I have Insult / Injury and will be adding Gratuitous Violence. The others are too risky. Heartless Hidetsugu may work... I'll think about him. I like the Ball Lightning cards too much. It's the main gimmick of the deck so I won't be giving them up haha! Checked out you deck; very nice! Thanks again for stopping by!

Daedalus19876 - Thanks for all the advice! I've actually already seen and upvoted your Judgement Day haha! Gratuitous Violence is going in. Felidar Sovereign will be leaving me soon so I won't add ToE for the same reason he's leaving. Crumbling Colossus will be cut soon-Iroas, God of Victory you think? I've kept Kor Cartographer in the sideboard for that very reason. He'll probably find his way back in. Yes I've been needing more removal and those are all good options. Enlightened Tutor may find a place even with Sunforger possibly being cut. I also think you're right about the 2 cost mana rocks... good advice. All those card draw options are amazing but very expensive. Will keep them in mind but for now I'll find cheaper alternatives. Thank you a thousand times my friend!

freakingShane - Thanks for the kind words friend! Yup, the Bracers are going in. All those other cards I'll consider as a package, may perhaps replace my Sunforger package with them. Thanks a ton!

Forkbeard - Thanks for the upvote! I will consider Enlightened Tutor! Definitely an upgrade for Open the Armory. Thanks again!

clayperce - Appreciate it man! I've never had an issue with Temple of the False God. Works fine for me. Taurean Mauler doesn't work because of my friend's Sliver Overlord, but Sunscorch Regent is nice. Also adds life gain! Other people's treason effects aren't an issue. Never have enough pre-combat mana for Rogue's Passage. I'll consider Chandra. Thanks a lot!

Again, just want to thank you all for the kind words and advice! I've got a lot to think about!

LVL_666 on The End of Us All

If there is ever a sliver deck in need, I must always go and offer aid. So you have a rather unique deck building situation alternate wincon that is not creature based damage and not (infinite) combo based. So let me break down my thoughts.

  • poisonous ala Virulent Sliver + Snake Cult Initiation. This is a rather off beat suggestion, because Wizards created almost no cards with this keyword (these are the only two!) at the very least you'll have the element of surprise. This is significantly different from infect (i'll get to that later) in that you'll need to attack your opponnent 10 times in total (it doesn't matter how much damage you deal!) in order to win with virulent in play. For the two cards previously suggested, i'd remove Cautery Sliver and/or Darkheart Sliver: as it stands, your deck has 5 sac outlets for slivers. I understand it's more or less important to the current wincon of mass reanimation, but in order to make room this is what i'd take out. As it stands, your deck has 5 sac outlets. You could remove two. Additionaly, you can use cards with proliferate to finish the job - i.e. Contagion Engine, Inexorable Tide, or Fuel for the Cause.

  • Speaking of infect! Cards like Triumph of the Hordes, Phyresis, Tainted Strike, seem like great options to consider. In addition, you should include Firewake Sliver which is not only a sac outlet, but it also ramps your slivers to the point where they can swing for lethal with trample. So if an opponent blocks, you could ensure their demise. Then you could perform a mass reanimation next turn if necessary (if you're playing multiplayer). Also, an honorable mention for if your going all in on infect - Corrupted Conscience. It's always fun to take things. It's even more fun to make those things contribute exclusively to your wincon. As for what to take out for any of the previously mentioned, I'd remove:

  • Synapse Sliver: While this is an awesome sliver, you have enough tutors to get the job done.

  • Amoeboid Changeling: Normally, I always speak up for this little guy, because few people actually pay attention to his interaction with Sliver Overlord...but your deck is shaping up to be more of an aggro style deck as opposed to a control deck. Besides, i'm going to go ahead and suggest that maybe you should also consider changing your commander for Sliver Legion, and maybe removing Sliver Overlord from the deck altogether. A potential amendment to your wincon as it stands is that after you perform a mass reanimation, you play Triumph of the Hordes, then your Commander and just end everyone at the table. This is all just kind of off the top of my head, and I haven't really scrutinized the idea for feasibility and take it all worth a grain of salt.

I hope my suggestions got some gears turning. May the hive live on forever.

Delta-117 on Looking For a New Commander

Yeah it can be a hard call at times. My current decks are;

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice,

Sliver Overlord,

Nekusar, the Mindrazer,

Athreos, God of Passage,

Kruphix, God of Horizons(although this one is not playable yet), Talrand, Sky Summoner, and then I have been considering Kaalia of the Vast, The Gitrog Monster, and The Ur-Dragon. So many different playstyles I try to have, but I really do have to set a limit somewhere's at some point lol.

I suggest anyways you keep an eye on Commander2017, there is most certaibly going to be a mardu vampires deck on the way and that might be something to consider.

YamishiTheWickedOne I'd say it's pretty good. Packs a mean punch for the $80. I've been able to hold my own in 1v1s, 5 player games, against tribal, voltron, control and tokens. Played great games against a Sliver Overlord deck and a Zurgo Helmsmasher deck. i'd say win rate is around 60% actually. But most importantly It's a lot of fun to play IMO.
