Thorncaster Sliver Discussion

I'm not a fan of the Fungus Sliver and Dormant Sliver (defender is pretty bad in a aggro deck :/) Metallic Sliver isn't good in a edh, he take a slot for nothing

Leeching Sliver is a lesser version of Thorncaster Sliver, you can keep both of them, but idk if it's worth-it

Ah,Mirror Entity is a great addon to a tribal deck ;D

4 of Manaweft Sliver is a must in any sliver deck with more than 2 colors. If you can get the budget for it, Sliver Hive is also huge. Galerider Sliver is easily one of the strongest slivers around, and even though pricey, having 4 of them will be a huge boon. Also consider Venom Sliver for some degenerate deathtouch + first strike business. It also combos beautifully with Thorncaster Sliver's ping effect.

If I was going to cut something from this deck, it would probably be all the white slivers, the Battle Slivers and possibly the Megantic Sliver.

For non-sliver cards that are reasonably budget and help a lot in a tribal deck like this check out Distant Melody and Descendants' Path.

Hey Pozo2212,

So Thorncaster Sliver came across my radar sometime ago, and my reasons for not including are thus - for a 2/2 that can deal potentially 3 points of damage in a given turn is lackluster. Terrible. Not worth the mana. Additionally, there are plenty of other slivers that cost (in varying colors) that are just plain better - Brood Sliver the Legendary Slivers and Synapse Sliver just to name a few. It's synergy with Venom Sliver is nice and all, but that's the only card let alone sliver it'd have any actual synergy with. To make it more viable, i'd have to include Toxin Sliver as well, but i'd prefer to keep my current line up. tl:dr - it's CMC is too high for what good it actually does.

Forkbeard on Sliver Overlord: Slivers Gone Wild

Having spent the last few years with a beat down style sliver deck, not only was it not as effective as I wanted it to be, it was also getting a little stale...time to spice things up a little! Another important factor, Overlord is fantastic but also very slow - as it turns out, an 8 mana/5 colour tutor isn't exactly efficient. With these thoughts in mind, I've decided to give the deck a significant overhaul with 2 goals in mind: improve reliability + increase shenanigans.

I've taken out most of the pump slivers in favour of a few effective combo slivers. I've also learned that I need some disruption to avoid the hive mind's mortal enemy - board wipes. Anyway, here's the change list:

Out: Aphetto Dredging, Constricting Sliver, Cryptolith Rite, Distant Melody, Horned Sliver, Magma Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Might Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Root Sliver, Shared Animosity, Synapse Sliver, Telekinetic Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver, Toxin Sliver, Ward Sliver

In: Basal Sliver, Blur Sliver, Commander's Sphere, Counterspell, Crypt Sliver, Darksteel Ingot, Disallow, Dormant Sliver, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Paradox Engine, Quick Sliver, Swan Song, Voidslime, Wheel of Sun and Moon, Winged Sliver

I'm looking forward to seeing how this refreshed build performs.

Recently added Intruder Alarm to my sliver deck. Makes infinite mana possible - endgame with the right cards in play.

Thorncaster Sliver is sick with the deathtouch sliver in play

Constricting Sliver also super powerful with its ETB effect.

in response to your Q: maybe remove the Panoramas, and possibly Savage Lands and Crumbling Necropolis since you are running less of red and black and a few of the basic lands if needed.

These slivers you may want to take out and replace with some of the ones below if you can

Victual Sliver, Sinew Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Plated Sliver, Heart Sliver, Hibernation Sliver, Homing Sliver, Basal Sliver,

put in:

Call to the Kindred, Prismatic Omen, Bloom Tender, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Exotic Orchard, Beastmaster Ascension,Coat of Arms, Descendants' Path,dual lands (if you can) pain lands (to replace some of the tri land, few of the basics)

possible replacements:

Essence Sliver, Hunter Sliver, Magma Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver,Groundshaker Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Toxin Sliver

these slivers will combo a tad better than the ones you currently have. especially hunter sliver with first strike and deathtouch

I can't cut off the Thorncaster Sliver because it really necessary to make a combo with Venom Sliver, and this one make a combo with Striking Sliver that make a combo with Galerider Sliver hahahaha. The structure of my deck is to have the opponent can't do anything unless if he use a deck full with removals, so the Diffusion Sliver come to the action =D. But I'll make some tests with AEther Vial and see if it will really work. Thanks Overcannon.
