Seventy7INa45 on 5-C Sliver Deck (Slivers: Resistance is Futile)

6 days ago

Since you run Sliver Overlord as your commander, have you thought about running Unnatural Selection and/or Amoeboid Changeling? It lets you steal their creatures which can be kind of fun. I run a sliver deck but it's Queen based. Still welcome to take a look and see if anything strikes inspiration :)

Paradox Engine or Intruder Alarm + Sliver Overlord + any mana tapping sliver or Cryptolith Rite = every single sliver in your library into play. Start by grabbing all your 1 CMC slivers, building a large mana pool in the mean time. Every time you play a sliver, you untap all your slivers, tap them all for mana pay 3 mana and search out another, while banking the spare. Funnest combo in Slivers, and every single one of the pieces are good on their own without the combo interaction. It's definitely worth running Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm. Intruder Alarm is even a nice old card with low CMC to fit your theme.

edit: just realized I had already commented on this deck and made this suggestion. Didn't notice until I posted the comment.

I am not a fan of your proposed Sliver. As it stands, there are only two Slivers in the game with abilities that are not shared across all Slivers - Sliver Queen and Sliver Overlord. Those three abilities involve hive manipulation, which seems fitting for their owners’ respective roles.

I don’t think it makes sense to give your hypothetical Sliver either flash or an ETB ability. Instead, stick with the activated counter/sacrifice ability, and leave it at that.

You could even make its mana cost and then use Countersquall’s ability, if you’re concerned about it not being powerful enough sans ETB.

I’d also bump it up to a 2/2.

I assume, at least at the moment, that this is a budget build. So my suggestions will attempt to be budget friendly.

Sliver Hive and Hive Stirrings would likely be welcome additions to your list here. Path of Ancestry is also really good for tribal decks that go creature heavy. Additionally, Sylvan Scrying and Expedition Map are both very good mana-fixers in terms of land-fetching (also, on a budget, cards like Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, and Crop Rotation, especially for a five color deck, can be very good). Stoneforge Masterwork, Obelisk of Urd, and Door of Destinies are also all relatively budget friendly tribal cards.

There are obviously some more expensive cards that you could dip into, such as Cavern of Souls (and similar non-budget lands), Urza's Incubator, Herald's Horn, Coat of Arms, Training Grounds (if you decided to have Sliver Overlord for your commander), not to mention other good sliver creatures such as Galerider Sliver, Sliver Overlord, Sliver Queen, and Sliver Legion.

This is far from a complete list. That being said, there are a ton of different Sliver tribal EDH decks out there -- you should check them out and see what kinds of cards, interactions, and combos they run. Good luck!

Recently revamped my Atogatog deck that's all about stealing creatures (and other permanents) and turning them into Atogs for Atogatog to eat. The deck now features more ways to change creature types like Amoeboid Changeling, Imagecrafter, and Unnatural Selection, and more ways to steal affected creatures like Willbreaker and Sliver Overlord. Faces of the Past and Thornbite Staff can untap Rubinia Soulsinger to steal and sacrifice every creature, or untap mana creatures for mana to activate Sliver Overlord or Captivating Crew, or cast every spell in our hand. March of the Machines + Pitiless Plunderer creates an infinite death loop for infinite untaps, and kills opponents with Zulaport Cutthroat.

Birds of Paradise is very useful in Slivers, as is Bloom Tender. Both help to make it easier to cast spells and ramp.

Cryptolith Rite is basically a 3rd copy of Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver. It's a great card to help ensure you get this effect in every game.

Intruder Alarm and Paradox Engine are both combo cards that just make Slivers explode. Intruder Alarm combos with the aforementioned mana generators; Cryptolith Rite, Gemhide Sliver, and Manaweft Sliver. Essentially, you tap your Slivers for mana, play a creature or search one out with Sliver Overlord and you can basically just play your whole deck at that point. Paradox Engine basically does the same thing, allowing you to get every Sliver in your deck into play when paired with your Commander and 5 mana.

Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn lower the cost of your Slivers, letting you get them onto the battlefield faster, and combo out more easily.

Vanquisher's Banner and Konda's Banner are both excellent ways to power up your army. Phyrexian Reclamation is a powerful way to bring back lost Slivers. Mirari's Wake and Shared Animosity are also excellent ways to get your Sliver army to terrifying status.

Domri Rade is easily the best planeswalker for a Sliver tribal deck. It comes out super early and every ability is relevant.

Cyclonic Rift is hard to pass up in any deck that runs blue. Slivers are no exception, you should run Cyclonic Rift. Wheel of Fortune is basically the best way to refill your hand in the game. For only 2R, it can refill your tank and change games.

This is just some friendly advice from someone who has been running a Sliver EDH deck for many years. It's a constant battle to keep it up to date, but it's an extremely fun archetype to play.

Teufell on Help me upgrade my ramp/speed ...

2 months ago

So, I've been having some problems with my Sliver deck regarding having a slow ramp. I want to cast my Sliver Overlord and use his tutor ability as fast as I can.

My friends have increased their power level and my deck needs a little bit more of speed regarding my commander.

Can you guys help me out to either my speed or ramp so Overlord can keep up with turn 3-win combo teferi?
