Weather the Storm Discussion
1 week ago
I have tested Klothys and Rhonas in my Zoo and love both!
For this reason, I am moving away from Naya and more into Gruul.
I maindecked 4x copies of both Feed the Clan and Weather the Storm. My clear fav is Weather the Storm. When playing against control, leaving the mana up while they Opt, Scry, whatever feels good. It also negates all the burn spells with equal lifegain.
My only question now is, would Life Goes On make sense?

It's been mentioned before, but Weather the Storm is one of the best. Play it in response to a burn spell, and you'll gain 6 life. Play it on a turn where they play 2 burn spells, that's 9 life you'll enjoy. It doesn't get more mana efficient than that.

Wasn't there a deck like 'Make burn players cry'?
Good luck against burn!

I wouldn't main board any of those cards unless you have good cards to bring in against other decks in your sideboard. Or if your meta is so high on burn that you could in theory go all the way at FNM for winning the night just by smashing burn. If that's the case I would just embrace the plan and run a Soul Sisters list.
Weather the Storm should be good.

jonmaior You're right that our lists are somewhat different but the core strategy is the same so it's ok to discuss.
I agree that an early aggression start like Pelt Collector into Strangleroot Geist is good, but that's why we build our deck this way so that it doesn't matter what we curve into, so much as we curve out at all it should be good enough.
I've definitely considered Weather the Storm (I have a playset in my little extra Stompy cards binder) but the mana difference of 1 to 2 for the life gain effect seems SO high to me. In addition, the big hit for Weather the Storm is in fact Storm decks, but I feel confident against storm in the main off the back of Dryad Militant alone.
As for Choke I use to run it in older versions but it has sense lost its appeal to me. It's only really effective against U/W control and it's not stopping any of the current Stoneblade stuff. It's a lot of mana, for little devotion, that doesn't absolutely have an impact on the board in every game.

jerleg, Thanks! I like the deck. I have kind of come around on the once upon a time and am considering running 4 in my version. I think this card is essentially a 12 copy of Pelt Collector at least for me. In my experience, the best start we can have is t1 Pelt Collector t2 Strangleroot Geist . that isn't that much to ask for and it can just win the game by itself. If you have a 3 drop to follow up, and then another one, and another one, and another one etc... it is very hard for your opponent to win. they have to kill your big steel leafs and your Geist/pelt collector can ofter just stick around and end the game for you. My deck is definitely very different than yours in the regard that it is much higher on the curve running up to 12 3 drops and just 8 2 drops. I personally think that a top end like surrak is pretty good as just another thing to deal with that can also win the game if your opponent taps out and they won't be expecting it because they probably don't know it exists. I think Weather the Storm could possibly replace Life Goes On in the sideboard. it can be brought in usefully against burn and storm so you could still have a plan against storm at least. at least in my deck im not worried about burn because they pretty much have no chance against me because im as fast but with bigger creatures.

Traditional sliver aggro basically mandates Aether Vial , which is anything but budget, but sliver combo gives options.
If you are looking at a Basal Sliver deck, its worth looking at Adaptive Automaton / Changeling Outcast / Haakon, Stromgald Scourge . Torment of Hailfire gives another 'I win the game' card, and Bitter Ordeal gives another, but frankly any storm card will work. Even Ignite Memories . Changeling also lets you run different 'ramp sac' options in Skirk Prospector . Weather the Storm will be spectacular sideboard.
Lands are where it gets tricky. You want green for gemhides etc, and multicolour to fix for other slivers. Sliver Hive will fix most problems, but it got expensive at some point. Ancient Ziggurat doesn't fuel your spells, but when trying to combo into them with basal, that matters less. Playing mostly green/black and leaning into Llanowar Wastes and friends is likely the best option.

Traditionally these lists run Martyr of Sands and Soul's Attendant . The old school variants used Squadron Hawk for bigger martyrs, most modern lists are red/white for Norin the Wary / Genesis Chamber .
Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos are powerful tools to put a lot of lifegain creatures on the board. Black white 'pay life'/ Children of Korlis is a thing. Condemn plays nice with alternative wincons. Essence Warden and cards like Weather the Storm point towards a green list, which would likely run some newer token-generation like Haazda Marshal & Legion's Landing Flip.
Have fun brewing- martyr proc/soul sisters is a classic which deserves to be back in the meta.
