Warping Wail Discussion

Warping Wail could be great in here, less so could Spatial Contortion but it's worth a look.

Also, Mirrorpool could work pretty well with your big Eldrazi. Finally, thoughts on Karn Liberated?

Either way, sweet build!

superhuman21 - He can easily get to his win cons because of the tron lands. Urza's Tower, Urza's Power Plant, and Urza's Mine can produce 7 mana by turn three, which is enough for Karn Liberated. Expedition Map is in the deck to increase the chances of getting tron (all three lands together) by turn three. Chromatic Star is an arguable choice here, but the benefit of drawing does help being that black isn't well known for drawing (in modern at least). The signets aren't terrible ideas for ramp, but just seem a little unneeded. I would personally say Mind Stone is better as it can draw late game when the mana is no longer relevant.

Torment of Scarabs is too slow for the competitive scene he's trying to build this deck for, however Warping Wail is a decent choice for sideboard.

I personally love Torment of Hailfire just as much as Debt to the Deathless. The issue is blacks mana ramp. In order for it to be lethal you need >=. since Sacrifice and Dark Ritual aren't options in modern it may be a bit difficult getting to your alt drops of Karn, Ulamog, or Ugin. I'd replace Ulamog with Desolation Twin. You get 2 10/10s and while not having indestruct. it is a pro/con.

The other thing is that Chromatic Star and Exp. Map seem expensive for what they are doing. While this deck is mono, I'd still splash in Orzhov Signet or Dimir Signet instead of these. It gives you black mana, and you're not doing a 1-for-1 trade from colorless to black.

I'd also add Warping Wail into this deck. While it can only counter sorceries. The other card to consider to help lock down your opponent until you can get hailfire out is Torment of Scarabs. Otherwise +1

Through all of my experience playing slivers, I have found that Bonescythe Sliver tends to be a dead card. If you even get the ability to cast it, it will most likely get countered, and if it hits the field they are going to kill it before you can deal damage with it. So instead I started running Leeching Sliver. It doesn't double the damage but it gives unblockable damage which can be a game changer. Also, in the sideboard I would recommend 2x Warping Wail for board wipes and other threats, dropping the Screeching Sliver and Belligerent Sliver, and in the mainboard I would move the Leeching Sliver from the sideboard to replace Striking Sliver and Venom Sliver, since both of those won't do much as 1 ofs.

I actually own a colorless artifact deck IRL with Karn, Silver Golem as commander.

You should add Oracle's Vault, as once it's active, it forms a pseudo-infinite combo with Paradox Engine. Also, Semblance Anvil can also help with ramp.

Akroma's Memorial is a disgusting card, giving all your creatures a bunch of various buffs.

A really funny card I have in my deck is Warping Wail. It allows you to counter target sorcery, which means those dreaded Merciless Eviction, with artifact chosen.

Personally, in my sliver deck, I chose to get rid of Striking Sliver and Necrotic Sliver in favor of Leeching Sliver since it makes your attacks much more deadly if you get a swarm. Also found that 1 Sliver Legion in mainboard can be a game winner by itself. I would also have to recommend Warping Wail as a counter spell for board wipes and it helps get rid of some threats such as Noble Hierarch and Dark Confidant. Also, this is just personal preference but Telekinetic Sliver can be good as a 1 of in the sideboard to keep your opponent mana locked while you build up your slivers.

First, congrats on the performance at SCG Syracuse! So cool to see Slivers get a little love!

I notice the 2x Warping Wail in the sideboard that weren't there at Syracuse. How are they working out?

Also, if I wanted to buy into the deck but was a couple hundred short, what would you suggest? Or asked another way: How bad does the deck become if running fewer Caverns or Vials? Because if the deck just falls apart without 4x of each, I'd probably be happier just saving up for a few more months :-)

Congrats again, and draw well!

My apologies.

I am travelling at the moment and haven't had a lot of time for deck testing.

tbqh I also got the shits with someone on TappedOut and it made me not want to hang out here.

I don't have much feedback for you other than the deck is REALLY good.

Very consistent, with lots of paths to victory.

Vessel of Nascency was an excellent addition.

I played this a few times before that change but I noticed it as soon as I started playing this tonight.

You've got the correct amount of removal in the Mainboard, imo. Kudos for using the best version of Grasp of Darkness.

My only suggestion would be Murder instead of Warping Wail, but that is probably a personal preference or meta call.

Nice deck. Solid building. Fun to play.

Easy +1 from me.
