Sliver Queen Discussion
4 days ago
I think just getting the land base sorted is the most important thing, and then when Sliver Queen etc are options, you can go for those. My sliver deck Slivers Swarm just entered and won its first tournament, so I'm feeling pretty happy with it right now. Feel free to have a look. Up voted

gvazdaus, typically my wins look like a Heart Sliver + Basal Sliver + Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver + Sliver Queen infinite mana combo. My meta is Control Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign, Voltron Sram, Senior Edificer, and Goodstuff/Synergy Reki, the History of Kamigawa. The worst of it is that politically, my deck is very weak. My playgroup tends to go for me first, and it quickly becomes a game of Archenemy. Typically the best thing I can do is play a bunch of Slivers and attempt to combo out when the table least expects it. Usually it works a lot better than i'd expect until the Yennett player gets a CounterScepter online, then i'd just be hurtin.
Rarely do I ever swing wide though. In case you were wondering.

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!

Always good to get a post from you The_Raven_Guy. So you're wondering how I would prioritize ordering cards for assembling your deck? Hmm...well first I would start with acquiring the manabase, which will likely be the most expensive portion. Given the recently revealed reprints of shocklands in the upcoming Ravnica block, I'd say now is the right time to pick those up with the recent price drop. If you intend on pursuing Original Duals, well those unfortunately can be rather pricey, but I recommend eBay and TCGPlayer to acquire them. Additionally, if you know any other players who are willing to accept a trade/favor in addition to money then that would definitely be the best path.
Next on the list would be the reserved list cards, and counter suite (if you intend on pursuing those). Sliver Queen unfortunately had a bit of a bump up in price recently, so that will be an additional financial hurdle. As for the other pieces if you want me to suggest cheaper alternatives, let me know. Then i'd just pursue everything else. Recently, I picked up an unlimited Demonic Tutor for only $28. I got a discount from a friend who worked at the card shop, but still I believe you could pick one up for around the same price. If you have any questions, or want me to go more in depth on anything let me know!

It's possible to build a Mishra, Artificer Prodigy deck in Commander, which is certainty not using him as intended. It has some nifty advantages:
He makes your artifact spells impossible to counter (cast, ability goes on stack, counter on stack, counter resolves and sends artifact to graveyard, ability resolves, you search graveyard for the artifact just put there).
Combos with Possibility Storm. You cast artifact, you put Mishra's ability on the stack first, then Possibility storm; Possibility storm resolves, you get an artifact and put one cast on bottom of library; Mishra's resolves, you get the artifact you originally cast. Two for the price of one.

That pug from MIB: Well, H
I'll try to research on whatever defense such a card type can do. In fact; I actually own a copy of that card as irony. Wish me luck, DrkNinja
(Could've been great with Sunbird, but I'll find my own answers my way. Sorry again for the rejection...)

What would you recommend swapping out for them?
