You might want to drop Virulent Sliver. While poison counters always are fun, the ability poisonous makes it so that you have to hit them 10 times, and at that point you probably want to have already won. My suggestion would be to sub it with Bonescythe Sliver, or maybe more lands.

Is there a reason for Virulent Sliver? It seems to have anti-synergy with the slivers that give power bonuses, since the Poisonous effect doesn't scale. Maybe they'd be better as a sideboard option against lifegain-heavy decks?

If you're going for full multiplayer, then your build will really be affected by how casually you want to play. Infect itself will put people on guard already, but if you're not in a competitive group then you could use some cards that otherwise might be too slow. I would say that Triumph of the Hordes is honestly redundant and pointless if you're gong to use creatures that already have infect in abundance. What it does help with is creatures that have poison x but not infect like Sabertooth Cobra or Virulent Sliver.

That's the casual stuff though, and is on par with Giant Growth effects. If you want to play high end magic, then you'll want play dirty. Things like extra combat step and extra turn cards and honestly end up playing like a Narset deck. In multiplayer games, a general rule to take note of for infect is no blockers equates to more damage than higher power (in my experience at least).

I suggest to throw out Virulent Sliver (Poisonous is not Infect, you need to hit 10 times and the power of the creature doesn't matter) and put in Plated Sliver or Sidewinder Sliver.

Virulent Sliver is not really so great as it has only poisonous and not infect. Meaning you have to hit 10 times with slivers and not for a total of 10 power. Maybe Sidewinder Sliver Might be a replacement for a turn 1 drop.

I'd always run a Megantic Sliver instead of a Might Sliver.
Also I would suggest to throw out the Virulent Sliver. Poisonous is not the same as infect.

Whatever you do, don't run Virulent Sliver in your mainboard. You have to hit your opponent 10 times. Poisonous Infect. Only place for a Virulent Sliver is in a sideboard and only works against lifegain decks.

So me and a buddy were playing and I had Two creatures out, Galerider Sliver and Virulent Sliver and he had one non flying creature out.

I tapped my two creatures to declare attackers, he pulls out Unsummon and puts Galerider Sliver back to my hand and blocks and kills my Virulent Sliver with one of his creatures since mine lost the flying ability when galerider went back to my hand

was this correct?
