ZendikariWol I would side in for 4x Harmonic Sliver for Tron- for Burn I would probably side in for a total of 3x Syphon Sliver, 3x Diffusion, & 2x Quilled Sliver. I didn't include a sideboard here, though, since this deck is meant more for casual play than competitive, & I usually don't do sideboards when playing at home or in casual play at a shop, unless it's a tournament.

Hey! I am interested in your Sliver Hivelord, Homeward Path, and Syphon Sliver. My Coffers is from Torment and is in LP to NM condition. And if you have some lands I may be interested in then sure! The main stuff I am looking for, for my sliver deck can be found here

I see this quite often and it kinda makes me sad. The strongest part of Slivers is the fact that they can be 5 colors so well in every format they are legal in, and without having all 5 colors the slivers become weaker than they should be. Cards like Blur Sliver, Leeching Sliver, Syphon Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, and a few of the lords are locked off to you without having black and/or red.

You are welcome, I am just happy to see someone else interested in Slivers.

I have not played against a GDS deck, my local meta is a lot of Tron, Bant Eldrazi, and Elves.But I can see where Chameleon Colossus Would come in handy.

Syphon Sliver is a major factor agains aggro decks like elves, merfolk, or affinity. If you can get a Harmonic Sliver to stick against affinity you pretty much win.

As far as the Chameleon Colossus goes as I said I can see the appeal for one or two in the side board. I have never tried it because of the double green, but that doesn't mean it won't work.

Try to avoid redundant effects. Ie: you don't need Blur Sliver AND Heart Sliver. Use the cheaper one instead. The only exception to that rule is you probably will want both slivers that can tap for any color mana and technically Essence Sliver isn't a keyword, so you can have that and Syphon Sliver and essentially have all your slivers attack with double lifelink. You'll have a ridiculous amount of life very quickly.

Mana Echoes and Sliver Queen is an infinite combo, but Mana Echos is pretty pricey these days.

Faces of the Past is usually a winner in sliver decks. Hivestone is fun if you wanted to put some non-slivers in and make them all into slivers. Amoeboid Changeling + Sliver Overlord lets you take control of any tasty creatures your opponents have.

as for speeding up your lands, just try to use as many as possible that don't come into play tapped. The bullet lands such as Llanowar Wastes are cheap, but they will ping you for one damage to get mana fixing. Chromatic Lantern is pretty important in any 5 color deck.

Eu recomendaria tirar um Syphon Sliver para um Essence Sliver, pois isso basicamente d "Lifelink duplo". Essence Sliver nunca foi reformulado como "lifelink", portanto, se ambos estiverem no campo de batalha e o dano feito, voc ganha a vida do lifelink primeiro, ento o Essence Sliver ir disparar e voc ganhar a mesma quantidade de vida novamente.

Eu tambm recomendo o Aether Vial, uma vez que a velocidade instantnea pode trazer uma criatura para jogar. Piscar em limas extras na etapa final do seu oponente pode significar o fim do jogo. Especialmente se voc conseguir sair do jogo um. Eu tambm recomendaria uma placa-me para o jogo final na forma de Sliver Legion ou Sliver Hivelord. A raiva dos Deuses uma coisa real que pode tirar a maior parte de suas mentiras, de modo a garantir que elas sejam reforadas pode ser importante.

Por fim, eu quero deixar voc saber que estou usando o google tradutor para digitar tudo isso. Desculpe, se alguma coisa no se traduzisse corretamente, como eu no saberia haha.

So, I was scrolling through my comments, and forgot that I didn't actually answer you Troys50:

@LVL_666 I had heard this from my friends that this was not the case, that quad healing wasn't something possible with Essence Sliver. Guess you can't trust your friends, huh? Hail the Brood Queen! Bows

To answer your question: Your friends are 100% WRONG. If you refer the accordion up top, and go to: The Hivestone > The Strategy > Combos and Synergies and look at Syphon Sliver + Essence Sliver I explain everything at length. When they doubt you, just point them straight to that section, and it will silence them. With slivers, it is actually possible to get DECUPLE-life gain. Yes. That's right. If you have 4x Essence Slivers, 1x Syphon Sliver, and 1x Bonescythe Sliver in play then that's 4 separate triggered effects and 1 static effect going on two times in one strike. Say it with me now: DECUPLE-LIFE-GAIN. (that means times ten). Mind you it can only in a casual game. But it can happen. So tell your friends to stick that in their pipe and smoke it for ever doubting the queen's majesty.
