Venom Sliver Discussion

Whiskerbro on Sliverssss... its gonna hurt!!

You definitely want to be running 4x Aether Vial here. Sliver Hivelord is sweet as a one/two-of, but Sliver Legion, not so much for modern. You also want to be running quite a few more lands with those 4 and 5 drops you are playing. I'd recommend some Mutavaults highly. Striking Sliver is mediocre, as is Sentinel Sliver and Venom Sliver. I'd cut down one/two-ofs of those guys, as you also don't want to have too many of them.

Slivers you should definitely run: Sedge Sliver, Diffusion Sliver, Darkheart Sliver. Sedge provides you with another lord and regenerates your slivers. You definitely want a 4 of him, along with a few shocks and fetches mainboard to get swamps. Diffusion Sliver is great vs removal, which almost every modern deck will have, and makes all your dudes significantly harder to deal with. Darkheart Sliver is good for the burn matchup, but you don't want to run too many mainboard, probably just 2.

If you want to go even more agressive you can consider Muscle Sliver, Striking Sliver, and Venom Sliver. It makes it difficult for your opponents to do much defending and attacking.

That is why I am running Venom Sliver opposed to Toxin Sliver.

Personally I always run Striking Sliver+Venom Sliver while playing slivers. You also might want to check out land such as Transguild Promenade and City of Brass. Looks great!

herringtonr man that Diffusion Sliver is great, I didn't know it existed! In the past I've never played modern so there's so many cards I'm still learning about, thanks for the tip! From what little I've seen, I've noticed that Venom Sliver seems underplayed, and with the ability to give them first strike with Striking Sliver I just felt like it was a lethal combo. But I'll definitely keep my sideboard open though for play testing, I appreciate the post!

I would highly recommend Diffusion Sliver as a 4 of, taking out a few Bonescythe Slivers and Venom Slivers. Really helps against burn. Also, although it will bump your cost a bit, you should run 4 Galerider Slivers and take out 2 Striking Slivers. Is most every case, flying will be vastly superior to first strike.

well first off, Crystalline Sliver and Muscle Sliver are not modern legal. So that would be the first place to start :P Luckily, Muscle Sliver can be easily replaced by Sinew Sliver. There is not a super good direct replacement for Crystalline Sliver though. You also have some slivers that are somewhat sub-par. I would look to take out Venom Sliver (or at least reduce the number -- they are pretty meh in multilpes), Fungus Sliver, and probably also both Sliver Legion, and Sliver Hivelord. Chromatic Lantern also does not seem super needed if you have the manabase. Granted a good mana base is not the cheapest thing in the world. Crazy how fetchlands and shocklands can add up!

Slivers I would consider adding in place of the above cards are Blur Sliver (1 or 2 of), Darkheart Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Diffusion Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Sentinel Sliver (super good as a 1 or 2 of), Frenzy Sliver, Sidewinder Sliver, and Syphon Sliver (1 or 2 of). Support cards I would evaluate are Collected Company, and Aether Vial.

DVLuca, the problem with Hunter Sliver + Venom Sliver - cool combo where can target a single enemy creature and deathtouch it goodnight, but the problem is that the sliver engaging the provoke will likely die in the process. That's why I'd prefer Striking Sliver over Hunter. Thanks for the suggestion though!
