Telekinetic Sliver Discussion

Thank you for the feedback!! As for Galerider Sliver, I've went from 2 to 3 and back to 2. There are other answers to aggro decks with flyers, like Telekinetic Sliver, or attacking right back with Syphon Sliver out if Shifting Sliver or Sliver Hivelord is also alongside it. There's also two different tutors, plus Eladamri's Call to go dig for whatever sliver is needed. Your point remains valid though. If I do create a sideboard, I'll certainly add a couple Galeriders to it. :)

cdkime you are a genius!!!! It just clicked in my head to use Winter Orb and Telekinetic Sliver! I can just tap it right before my turn comes back up and all my lands are then untapped while they still have to deal with it! Thank you very much! :)

also, you might want to update and proofread your deck description. you say "know where" when you mean "nowhere". "consistency" is spelled with an "e" not an "a". Sliver Legion doesn't help you against elves any more than any other P/T buffing sliver. and i'm not sure how you think Telekinetic Sliver will help against tron. it is ineffective against their lands. the tron lands (and any other land) can be tapped for mana in response to Telekinetic Sliver's activation.

and finally, get some Phantasmal Image in here

You did not mention a format this is for but there are other ways to keep his creatures off of you. Even with slivers. Have you tried the following:

Psionic Sliver or Constricting Sliver or Acidic Sliver or Telekinetic Sliver or Necrotic Sliver?

Having a way to make slivers makes Necrotic Sliver probably game-ending if not addressed. Use a Sliver Hive to make slivers and then use the Necrotic Sliver's ability to destroy their creatures, then their lands. Game over.

Maze of Ith has other friends like Ice Floe.

Nice deck! Good to see you have the infinite mana combo in there. I wish I had a Gaea's Cradle!

I find getting going can be the hardest part - once I have Sliver Overlord in play I can search for my combo pieces and win.

So, with that in mind, having more mana acceleration like Harrow, Skyshroud Claim or Cryptolith Rite would be beneficial I think. Sliver Hive is great fixing in my opinion, or even Unclaimed Territory . If you have the means, Mana Echoes can get ridiculous very quickly.

I think Telekinetic Sliver is underrated. Same goes for Mirror Entity, Chameleon Colossus and Harsh Mercy.

I like to run Patriarch's Bidding as an anti-wrath effect. Second Sunrise or Heroic Intervention are also decent for this as instant-speed solutions.

In terms of what you could cut, there are definitely some slivers that could be replaced by mana rocks or mana acceleration. In addition, I find that either I win outright or get completely shut down by being ganged up on, so cantrips and/or counterspells don't tend to be of much use. BUT, whether they are useful depends on your metagame and what decks you are playing against. Having Cavern of Souls or Boseiju, Who Shelters All in there might alleviate your concerns over having your important slivers countered.

Other protection measures could include Asceticism, Privileged Position, or Eldrazi Monument (indestructible is a beautiful thing, and with Sliver Queen or Sliver Hive you don't have to worry about having tokens to sacrifice).

Hope this helps!

He cannot do this.

Rule 605 defines Mana Abilities.

Mana abailities must: (a) not have a target; (b) add mana to your mana pool when it resolves, and (c) not be a loyalty ability (Rule 605.1a). Gemhide Sliver's ability meets all these criteria, and thus can be considered a mana ability.

Pursuant to Rule 605.3b, mana abilities do not go on the stack--they cannot be "targeted, countered, or otherwise responded to. Rather, it resolves immediately after it is activated."

Pursuant to the above rules, what your friend did is against the rules.

Since mana abilities are a bit odd, I wanted to provide you the answer for non-mana abilities as well. Let's say it is the same hypothetical, but you are activating Telekinetic Sliver. Your friend could still not tap down your creature to prevent its ability from activating.

The activation cost itself is not a part of the stack--only the ability it creates is. In your situation, you have already paid the costs and put the ability on the stack. Your opponent cannot undo your paying the costs, and thus cannot retroactively nulify your use of Telekinetic Sliver.

Let's say things were changed, and your opponent played the tap spell first. The tap spell is on the stack, but has not resolved. You may tap your Telekinetic Sliver in response, while your opponent's ability is on the stack, activating the Sliver's ability. Your ability will resolve; followed by their ability, which will hit an already tapped creature.

Rgarza904,Ancient Ziggurat used to be in the deck but turns out that it is really bad in the deck. You can't cast Aether Vial, Collected Company, Warping Wail, or Spellskite. And I am playing Telekinetic Sliver in my side board. And I am not sure what you mean by eldrazi sliver.
