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.

and then theres the aforementioned Venom Sliver and Striking Sliver interaction. so a jund build would likely net the most potential removal.

DragonSliver09 on Pioneering a tribal deck

Drakorya: as much as i love slivers (its my favorite modern deck. its on my decks page if you wanna check it out) i'm not sure if they have enough for pioneer. i tried to put a list together, but couldn't come up with anything i liked. there aren't enough good slivers in Collected Company range imo to go that route, and you don't want cmc 4+ slivers in a coco build. a pioneer sliver deck would likely have to go a midrange route. the problem with that though is that it basically gets locked into a GWx color combo imo, because Predatory Sliver is the only buff they get, and Bonescythe Sliver is the only 4-drop. the only 5 drop worth using imo is Battle Sliver . maybe a naya midrange build could work, but idk. best thing about it i see is the Venom Sliver and Striking Sliver synergy. Sliver Hivelord puts a great strain on the mana base. too many creature-specific rainbow lands prevents the deck from casting the removal spells it will need to survive.

The deck is lacking in pump slivers beyond Predatory Sliver due to card legality in the format, which hurts the deck's power. In addition, I don't think the red slivers added do much to help the deck. Perhaps a switch to sultai by dropping Blur Sliver and Striking Sliver and adding Leeching Sliver and Syphon Sliver , and then switching out the manabase, could help. Might be wrong and it may be working fine but I don't know.

Gotta admit, this deck probably really only has two ways to go; either infinite mana or buff heavier. Now I could go for Sinew Sliver and Muscle Sliver inclusions and really make it more combat-focused and overwhelming in the early game or I go full in on the mana gimmick. So for now I decided to embrace the later one by going for one of the classics adding Mana Echoes .

cutting down on fat (stuff like Sentinel Sliver and Brood Sliver had to go), added a second Sliver Queen as well as a Patriarch's Bidding for consistency/power. The addition of Cautery Sliver allows to heal myself in a pinch as well as to turn sliver tokens into damage missiles and get rid of Slivers with detrimental effects.

The combination of Striking Sliver , Predatory Sliver , Venom Sliver , Cloudshredder Sliver seems to be a good way to include an alternate/more conservative wincon.

Unclaimed Territory is great, don't know how I could miss that before :) So yeah...auto-include xD

...and saving the best for last: The birds flew away...probably gone south or something. However...don't fret! Due to Swan Song in the SB we definitely won't lack in avian friends. ^_°

the deck looks much better now!

i just wonder how you would draw your whole deck and close out the game from there as ya would need a way to generate infinite mana to abuse sour draw-slivers to the maximum.

instead i would rely more on a battlefocused way. i cant stand how good Venom Sliver paires with Striking Sliver . i would add a playset.

Unclaimed Territory is a wonderful land for tribal decks.

last but not least... i cant accept Birds of Paradise (like any other non-sliver)) in a sliver deck :P

Hey PhyrexianGameplay, I completely agree, G/W is far easier to play, but the fact is, I hate playing with a metà deck,and whoever tried pauper Sliver used white slivers. So I decided to use the red Sliver that, actually, can have a very similar effect. Sinew Sliver ? No problem you can tutor muscolar and Predatory ones with Homing Sliver . As for Plated Sliver , he's very good but (even though it's effect can stack so it's definitely good, it shouldn't be common in my opinion) having a +0/+1 is like having first strike, so Striking Sliver is the answer. Also, having access to the bolt and Outnumber makes the deck more control and interesting. Anyway, thanks for your opinion (which was right), but it was a matter of being a little bit original, not only of winning games

Thanks multimedia

Appreciate the suggestions as this opened my eyes to re-tooling the manabase. This is the first commander deck I built and I made the mistake of never revisiting the manabase.

I think i'm going to go a little different route though and if you have any other thoughts on this strategy i'd love to hear them.

The plan is to increase the basics land count to 13-15 with a little extra focus on green. With those i'll add the green ramp/fixing staples of Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Farseek , and Explosive Vegetation .

In addition to the basics i'm planning to add the Battle lands for another shot of entering untapped.

Prairie Stream , Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh , Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista

I understand your point about cutting these guys:

Thorncaster Sliver , Ward Sliver - Easy cuts

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts - Love holding a player hostage with the land destruction threat. Sad to see it go.

Might Sliver , Megantic Sliver - Think the explosive pump spells do a better job so i can cut them.

Don't think I can let go of Constricting Sliver , Fury Sliver , Pulmonic Sliver

And as for Homing Sliver , Venom Sliver , Striking Sliver i'll probably put them back in.

Wanted to point out that Star of Extinction + Spiteful Sliver is an instant win ;)
