So I'll be making suggestions based on my experience with Sliver Overlord as commander.

There are 2 cards The First Sliver can take unfair advantage of. They are Hibernation Sliver and Aetherflux Reservoir . You will get a lot of free spells, especially if you have Morophon, the Boundless out. Mosswort Bridge works nice with your commander, too.

Just by looking at your deck, I get the idea that you want to get the most out of every cascade trigger. Almost every card that is less than 5 CC is a sliver, even if it's a bad sliver (several of the slivers with sacrifice abilities) or a changeling. While that does help the deck be more explosive, it really hurts its resiliency. If there's a boardwipe, or spot removal aimed at your commander, you will fall very far behind if you don't have the mana to recast your commander. That's why Crystalline Sliver is always the first thing I search for with Overlord.

I suggest a bit of a paradigm shift. I'd add more lower converted mana cost cards and some card advantage, that way you won't be blown out of the water with all-too-common boardwipes. When slivers are out, people tend to play those cards more often for some reason. I like Distant Melody , Chromatic Lantern , Aphetto Dredging , Living Death , Bring to Light , Opaline Sliver , and Sol Ring . Wheel of Fate works really well with your commander, as does Living End . It should be noted that if you don't want to cast the card you cascade into, you don't have to. If you choose to not cast it, it'll be shuffled back to the bottom of your deck to be cascaded into later instead. Also, Mirror Entity is killer with slivers.

Let me know what you think! I may change my deck to go with The First Sliver sometimes, so I'd appreciate if you have feedback I'm not aware of.

I've been having problems with embeded Javascript in deck pages, jQuery. I have removed it all it because it doesn't seem to be supported at user level any longer on this site.

<button onclick="document.getElementById('div2.reading').style.display=''; document.getElementById('div1.reading').style.display='none';" class="button">Show</button>

The buttons that are not working function with a Javascript onclick event. Since Javascript is no longer supported then I think that's why the buttons don't work.


You could remove the buttons and make the content of them into a second accordion. Can add accordions inside of other accordions (nested accordions). Nested is the coding term that's used when you put something inside of something else. To do this you would put the nested accordion inside "The Hivestone" panel. Make the title of the panel of the nested accordion the same title that was the button such as "Reading this decklist". Here's an example adapting your code:

Show

What I have done is removed the buttons and in their place is a nested accordion inside "The Hivestone" panel of the main accordion. The names of the buttons have been used as the titles of panels for the nested accordion. I have removed the separate divs that are being shown and hidden when you click the button; instead that content is within each panel of the nested accordion. The main accordion is wrapped in a custom div therefore I wrapped the nested accordion in a nested-custom div.

You can style any of the parts of the nested accordion while not effecting the main accordion by targeting elements in the #nested-custom in CSS. This code is not the complete content for the "The Hivestone" I only did the first two panels of the nested accordion. Hopefully you can figure out how to finish the rest; I've added comments as a guide. If you need help let me know :)

Hello again great mentor - I made an update to my Sliver Queen deck, and somehow lost all of the "show" and "hide" buttons in the accordion menu. I have no idea how I made that mistake...and am just facerolling on the keyboard. I'd appreciate any sort of assistance you could provide...but i'm wondering what did I delete? Warning: this is alot of code.

+1 This is a great battlecruiser!

You already have the most important card, Chromatic Lantern . You might even run Trophy Mage just to tutor it.

You already have all the Tri Lands. That's great! I think those are super solid.

When I started, I had a 5-color, 60-card 4x Sliver Overlord deck from way-back-when that I converted to Commander. WUBRG was a struggle for Pauper! Instead of buying Fetch Lands, I first got all the Vivid Lands. Then I centered my Ramp package around Nature's Lore , Farseek , Skyshroud Claim , and Hunting Wilds ; I searched for Forest Battle Lands and Bicycle Lands before upgrading to Shock Lands. Murmuring Bosk is a hidden gem of a Forest Tri Land. Once I had a solid 12-14 Ramp like this, it became very consistent.

My favorite deck right now is my Karona/ Hugs/ Politics. It is mostly carried by Land Tax , but does very well with its janky mana base. Recently I won by exiling my library with Thought Lash and then casting Nexus of Fate over and over, and killing everyone with my 8/8 commander!

Fires of Invention is my favorite right now and it is worth considering in any 5-color and definitely goes in any Battlecruiser deck.

Buy a Smothering Tithe while the're still $8!!!

Run Sakura-Tribe Elder in almost every deck.

And how is Niv-Mizzet Reborn working for you? Another buddy of mine bought the Commander's Quarters Budget Version, but its a tricky deck. Niv seems best when you're dedicated to "color-pair tribal" because his "exactly those colors" clause is very restrictive. Have you considered Scion of the Ur-Dragon , The Ur-Dragon , Ramos, Dragon Engine , or Morophon, the Boundless ? Scion is the cheapest and the most fun, imo.

Besides that, it looks powerful! Maybe put Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon into The Mimeoplasm just because its more likely to 1-shot someone in that deck? Idk seems pretty sweet... Also, consider finding a card or a 2-card combo for all of your decks that can "win out of nowhere" so if someone locks down the board, you can work a miracle.

nice to see you´re a fellow Sliver player as well :) your deck looks real good and waaaaay different than mine!

I have since switched out The First Sliver for a Sliver Overlord as my commander, and also added a Sliver Hivelord into the 99 as well - that makes it pretty nasty to play against since as soon as I have my commander out (pretty often on Turn 4, sometimes even 3) I can dig up Hivelord and protect my whole board by making it indestructible :)

of course, those were the 2 most expensive cards I ever bought and my playgroup now hates me and refuses to play against the ("broken") deck :-P

I´ll try and upload it here soon to get your opinion on it!

Hello SHINOBIofFATE,

I love Slivers, and am more than excited to give you my two cents- however, I have a major pet peeve when it comes to deck descriptions, specifically the lack of a deck description which your page has. When you don't include a detailed description it's hard for me to get a feel for how you want to your deck to play. Plus, it'll be a big help for you as you can put some thought into how you want your Sliver deck to play...as Slivers are the most flexible tribe in all of magic (and for those of you who doubt that, or want to argue- fight me :P). So yeah, get your deck description right- here are some resources you can use to help you get started:

End Rant. So, onward onto actual suggestions. Since you're running Sliver Overlord you are going to go for a more control oriented deck. You'll likely want to focus on Slivers that help you keep a stranglehold on the board as you won't need any of the Lord Sliver s. They're simply irrelevant as you are rarely going to be swinging wide with this commander. I would just include the one Sliver Lord that actually matters: Sliver Legion .

  • Acidic Sliver - sacrificing Slivers is never ideal unless you are getting the better end of the deal. Sac-ing a Sliver to deal a paltry 2 damage isn't worth it. Cut.
  • Diffusion Sliver - doesn't really work in commander. Paying an extra to remove a pesky creature in Commander is hardly a tax. This card is only good in standard where you could play multiple copies of this card, and make that tax potentially or . Cut.
  • Morophon, the Boundless feels more like a win-more card - essentially it's a card that only helps you if you're already ahead. Cut.
  • Opaline Sliver - generally, you don't want your Slivers to be targeted at all by your opponents(hint Crystalline Sliver ) - not to mention this card is a total non-combo or non-bo with the previously mentioned sliver. Cut.
  • Shadow Sliver - losing the ability to block for evasion is a risky gamble. Since Overlord is the more Control oriented Sliver and doesn't really encourage an aggro play style this sliver will rarely afford you an advantage. You have better options for evasion in the deck already (in my opinion.) Cut.
  • Tempered Sliver - This Sliver only benefits you if you were playing a more aggro style deck - and also if you could play multiple copies. Getting a +1/+1 counter only if your slivers can hit the opponent is okay...but I think you could better use the card slot for something else. Cut.
  • Virulent Sliver - This Sliver is cute, but unfortunately doesn't offer much in the way of a valid alternate win option. Definitely another win-more card, as you'll need 10 separate instances of combat damage on each opponent. Honestly, that's not really feasible in my opinion - unless you had 4 of these in your deck. But alas, that is a Sliver that doesn't really benefit you. Cut.
  • Ward Sliver - This one i'm a little bit uncertain on as protection can be incredibly handy depending on the circumstance - but for ? That's a hefty asking price. I think you could put that mana to better use elsewhere. Cut.

So that's it for my recommendations regarding what Slivers to cut. As for the rest of you deck, i'll save those recommendations for when you can give me a bit more information on how you want your deck to play - are you looking for a more aggro play style? If so, i'd recommend Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Legion honestly - but that's for a later conversation. Look forward to your response - i'm always happy to see another Sliver deck - Chitinous Approval Ensues
