I think he's talking about Sliver Overlord would be a better commander.

Also, he may be saying you need to upgrade your manabase. Not too sure, google translate wasn't too precise, it seems...

Well you do have the Sliver Hive Sliver Hivelord and The First Sliver going for you as well as some others that are quite nice. I would throw in about 5 or so more lands and the Sliver Overlord and Sliver Queen and I am not sure what else. Unfortunately those two cards alone are going to cost you around 50$ and 150$.

There are some more cost-efficient slivers that I would exchange. Also you have way too few lands in here. I guess you will run into mana problems on a regular basis. Consider also exchanging The First Sliver for Sliver Overlord . Your current commander is busted but the permanent tutoring of Sliver Overlord is just too powerful to not include.

Take a look at my list if you want, I found it to be very powerful (at least at my level of play)

Hey Daevied, thanks for the compliment and i'm honored that you would use my deck as a basis for your own. I can't wait to see how your preferences and style will guide you toward your ideal vision of the Hive.

What would be the cards in the list that could be exchanged depending on my meta? - Daevied

Tough question. As for the cards that I would recommend are meta-flexible, well...i'll give a few ideas I guess.

  • Quick Sliver - Quick is meant to give you additional flexibility when you are playing at a table with alot of interaction. A player with an itch tap finger can be extremely annoying...especially when they see you in the lead, and leave up some of their mana before your turn begins. If you don't have that problem, then you could slot this one out. OR, if you have more than one annoying player you could slot this in for Root Sliver .
  • Sliver Overlord - If you have a meta that is cEDH - only, then well...this Sliver as a commander simply won't be able to compete in first place on a consistent basis. My deck as it is built can hang with some of those decks, but it was never intended to run ahead of the pack in that kind of meta. If you want to make a truly "Sliver themed" cEDH deck, then you need to pilot The First Sliver + Food Chain or maybe Sliver Queen Combo.
  • Lands - The most expensive part of this deck are the lands. Honestly, you don't need to have Original Duals and Fetches to have a consistent manabase. If you have a slightly more relaxed meta, you could opt for the Mirage Fetchlands. As for duals, you could snatch up the recently reprinted Shocklands. Utility lands like Gaea's Cradle can be swapped out basics (trust me, it's good to have them - especially when someone in your meta decides to run Blood Moon in a 5 color deck...jerk)

Btw, you can combo Hibernation Sliver , Lavabelly Sliver , and Morophon, the Boundless with any lifelink sliver .p - Daevied

I saw a different use for Lavabelly Sliver in the form of Sliver Queen + Lavabelly Sliver + Basal Sliver - Infinite ETBs = Infinite "Drain for 1" effects. Morophon 's aesthetic just didn't vibe with me, and I won't include it in any of my builds - but I do see the combo potential. Honestly, First Sliver's Chosen caught my eye, and i've been curious as to what I could do with it. Any thoughts? Oh, and thanks for commenting on my page, and thanks again for the compliments. Good luck in your build!

Chitinous Approval Ensues

Check 1. 2.

Hello, TappedOut Community. If this is considered the wrong forum to put this post, kindly place it where it does fit.

After finishing the Decklist for my Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder CHAOS (Wait. Why no Chaos Tab?), & the development of my first OC Planeswalker (That goes out to you, RaikouRider! ^_^)

This leaves me w/ three decks to still do in the forms of Superfriends/Avengers, Kruphix Infinite & a Pauper deck I've abandoned for so long as I never found a way to make it win by Turn 2.

But, the main reason I'm posting this is that in recent memory (& long before that even.), it seems my infatuation w/ the Meter is still present, & there are varying comments stagings like "It's pointless.", or even "It doesn't matchup to actual Deck Power.". Well, what site even does that thing that TappedOut Staff could learn from? Logically, MTG Salvation is dead, & I can only think of one other thing; Archidekt. But even I dunno it'll work. I'd like some opinions about that. But this is a problem w/ the site nobody wants to fix. Is there even a way? That said, as I still stand by such a Meter in the first place, & that my tastes in fiction are different than everybody else, I swore I'll never reference anything ever again here, but the pact ends now.

“If anyone ever tells me it’s a mistake to have hope, well then, i’ll just tell them they’re wrong. And I’ll keep telling them till they believe. No matter how many times it takes!"

There is only one person on TappedOut who knows this quote, but he & I are literally Yin & Yang.

Well, the next thing I wanted to do after Kruphix, Superfriends, & maybe my Pauper deck, I always wanted to make a Tribal Deck, but running Sliver Overlord w/ the new Slivs (Yeah, 2020 is among us now! Time to cal Slivers Slivs, because They Lied! Movies, TV, Video Games, Literature, the sources broke their promises, ALL OF THEM!), but I wanted a better idea for a Tribe. I also wanted to use Morophon, the Boundless as a Tribe Leader; but I have strict rules for what tribe to use:

  1. Popular tribes I will always say no to.

  2. If any Creature Type is missing even one color of the pie, it's out.

  3. Tribe Leaders for already existing tribes means those tribes are out also.

  4. Eldrazi = OMITTED. The Tribe must have a good balance of all five colors, & one Eldrazi is meaningless.

  5. Be original! Think of a tribe that is underrated, & is good!

  6. Secondary Types are allowed, but remember to use a right balance of creatures of such design; this is why JoshLeeKwai was the first out in GameKnights Ep 27.

&... That's it I guess, oh & one last thing: Since nobody wanted to approve of a Vorthos Deck idea of a Documentary about a feminist who finds out about the dark truth behind the guys; & has never had the same perspective ever again, you are no longer allowed to say no to such a notion for a Vorthos Deck. From there, it's my Eye of the Jeskai Way/Team America. Then again though, all those Donald Trump Vorthos Decks are probably worse anyways, I mean Gender Wars in the Web is better than Politics on the Web anyway

Well, this is where my status so far ends. I'll finish this up w/ one more quote from the same source material as the one from above; & for the record, it's more than just this part of a franchise that exists you know. See ya:

“It’s not fair to be unhappy. Especially if you’re not doing anything wrong."

Sad to say, that's pretty much me almost all the time... & I relate to Tomoko Kuroki's Stressed Out mind, Introversion, in addition to Izuku "Deku" Midoriya's former lack of Self Esteem. That's the worst part. :( But what does my Personal Color Identity Say after all that?

That's waaaaaay too many lands. 37 is a good number for slivers. If you're worried about hitting your colors and need your lands to fit a budget, here's some lands you can check out. The Vivid land cycle ( Vivid Marsh ), the Tri-colored land cycle ( Seaside Citadel ), 1 of each basic land + Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse / Prismatic Vista , and then a smothering of budget 5 color lands like: Grand Coliseum , Rupture Spire , Unknown Shores , etc.

I also play a Sliver deck. It's a budget list, but the budget is really only spared in the land base. I run all of the above mentioned lands and have zero problems hitting all 5 colors. Here's my list if you're interested.

Lands aside, here's some other Sliver staples that you're missing that might be worth looking at in the future. Sliver Overlord , Sliver Legion and the upcoming The First Sliver should be auto-includes if you can afford them. On that same note, Morophon, the Boundless is stupid good with Slivers and can let you play your commander for free from the Command zone, as well as reduce the cost of every sliver in your deck to just colorless or free. Cyclonic Rift is a staple in any EDH deck that runs blue, it would definitely slot nicely into this deck. Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm create an infinite combo with Sliver Overlord that lets you search out and play every single Sliver card in your library. The 'Domri' planeswalkers are very good with Slivers ( Domri Rade , Domri, Chaos Bringer , Domri, Anarch of Bolas ). They each give repeatable draw, ramp, and removal. Vanquisher's Banner is another solid piece that pumps and draws. Smothering Tithe works really well with Slivers, as it fixes your mana and ramps and next to nobody actually pays that extra 2 mana. Cryptolith Rite is another Manaweft Sliver / Gemhide Sliver , definitely worth running the extra effect. Birds of Paradise really helps with fixing, especially if you land it on turn 1.

As far as your Slivers, I'd say that you could definitely clean up the creatures in that list a bit. Most Slivers are pretty dirt cheap cost wise, so it wouldn't cost much to analyze and trim down that list to use only the best Sliver for each effect. I've put a whole lot of effort into making sure that my creatures are as optimized as possible, so feel free to use my deck list for a reference in that endeavor.

Anyways, from one Sliver player to another; enjoy losing all your friends!!

BMHKain on OMG, more help? I fork ...

Uh, maybe we should start young on this; I plan to do an all creature (+ Primal Surge ) Animar, Soul of Elements deck soon enough. But which Sliver Tribe Lord to use?: The First Sliver ? Sliver Overlord ? Everything else seems like 99 Material; but before I make it, I'd like to know if Modern Horizons won't have anymore Slivers from where we're at now. Shame. I really wanted one w/ Hexproof.

But for now, A new Rock , & a new Land , & two Izzet Decks, one w/ Storm Elements:

BMH: The Inverted Brainchild (Melek Superstorm)

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


& another, that Emulates your Durdles:

Brudiclad, Durdle Emulation

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


These have compatibility to both. But for Ol' Melek, do you think stuff like Collected Conjuring is good? Mirrodin Besieged (Again?! Wrenn does not approve. XP seems inferior to another Wincon for Brudiclad though... The Card? Mechanized Production . Just Enchant an Artifact Token of any kind, next turn, GG; though how Brudiclad works, he can just make all your Tokens Artifacts of the same kind as the enchanted one anyway.

But what's your opinion? Is adding a Talisman for izzet, and/or a land based upon Horizon Canopy called Fiery Islet a good thing? If not for either, or just one, what would you recommend in their stead? In fact, is Fiery Islet even good at all?

I told you I'd (re)start simple. I'd be insane if I wasn't capable of this... :/
