Modern Aggro Five Color Sliver Tribal

Ixidron Score: 189

Fast and competitive aggro sliver, designed for modern, capable of beating some modern tier 1 archetypes.

Maybeboard is for alternatives and variants.

--You might prefer having Necrotic Sliver in your mainboard (I do) it's not an aggro creature type, but it's quite good to get rid of nasty stuff.

--Essence Sliver stacks with itself and Syphon Sliver.

--Interesting combo: Liquimetal Coating+Harmonic Sliver, if both cards are in your starting hand you can begin destroying lands at your third turn.

--Opaline Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, Diffusion Sliver and Syphon Sliver to counter burn (direct damage) decks.

--Screeching Sliver and Virulent Sliver to counter lifegain decks.

--AEther Vial and Cavern of Souls (sadly Root Sliver is not legal in modern) to fight counter/control decks, Opaline Sliverand Diffusion Sliver are also a good choices.

--AEther Vial is a very good card and some people might like to have 3-4 copies mainboard, it avoids counterspells and allows you to cast creatures for free and with flash.

--Jester's Cap and Surgical Extraction as anti-combo.

--Grafdigger's Cage, Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus as anti graveyard, but the best card would be Rest in Peace since this deck uses white and you have no way or retrieving your slivers from graveyard.

--Psionic Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver and Quilled Sliver are great against defensive/control and swarm aggro decks or anti tokens, also you can use Psionic Sliver to get rid of your Dormant Slivers deal direct damage to an opponent or to take down important creatures, Thorncaster Sliver and Quilled Sliver become exceptional if paired with Venom Sliver.

-- Descendants' Path and Call to the Kindred are great cards for tribals, basically you get free slivers, but you can't choose when you want to play them.

--Collected Company: great card here, most slivers cost 3 or less.

--Mirror Entity is a good finisher and counts as a sliver.

--Mutavault is a sliver on a land, quite good, and cannot be targetted by Abrupt Decay, Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek

--Frenetic Sliver basically makes removal useless once you learn how to flip coins, get yourself a custom coin, preferably big (easier to predict the result) and practice, there is nothing in the rules specifying how to flip a coin, best way is grabbing it while it's in the air and then bring it down to the table/hand, due to physics if you apply the same force all the time when you flip you can calculate how to make it land heads or tails, but it requires practice, oh, and it's perfectly legal :)

--Leyline of Sanctity or Witchbane Orb are great against burn, keep in mind bun decks can destroy artifacts since they sideboard Shatterstorm and Shattering Spree/Smash to Smithereens but have no way to interact with enchantments.

Sideboard is just an small list not a real sideboard, you can build it however you want, I recommend keeping Rest in Peace, Harmonic Sliver and Surgical Extraction at least.


Increased comment opacity and made the color darker, now you shouldn't have trouble reading them.

Looks like a great sliver deck. Can you give me some tips on mine?

Sliver decks are quite diverse, and most of them work relatively fine, the biggest issue is the mana base, not the creatures, as long as you are running 4x Sinew Sliver, 4x Predatory Sliver, 3-4x Galerider Sliver and the legends you are good to go, just adapt the remaining card choices to fit your playstyle.

In the description you can read more about variants.

Ixidron Is everything you have done to the page done in external Css?

The +1 button and the legendary card highlight are not part of the CSS, they are independent scripts.

Well, this is cool. I don't think you really need 3 Gemhide and 3 Manaweft, though. I'd make it 4 Manaweft. About the Megantic, I'd bring the count up to 4; they're just too good to pass up. For an Aggro deck, I don't really like the sound of Homing. I'd either bring them down to 1, or just cut them entirely. Hope this helps.

Oh, and nice CSS Ixidron!

Slivers are not that common in the meta, that's why I run 3-3 instead of 4-2 mana/gemhide, but stuff like Surgical Extraction or Maelstrom Pulse, those are more common, that's why I run 3-3.

about megantic, I used to run 4 of those, and they are great, but you don't want to get too many of those in your hand with not enough mana, and it's terrible if you get 2 of those in your starting hand with no mana producing sliver.

Trust me, Homing sliver is the best sliver, that thing just win games, I saw that happening over and over again, I'm on a tight spot, say I need a finisher and I have a lot of mana, or I need to get rid of a nasty permanent, I transform those Homing Slivers into an Sliver Legion or a Necrotic Sliver, if you drop a homing sliver you got full control of your deck, you can decide what to play and when to play, it's like having an enchantment that says, "if you didn't like what you just drew pay 3 and exchange that from something else".

Still, slivers decks are very very flexible, you can play them however you want and you, that's why I have a big maybeboard, just play them however you feel comfortable about.

How do you deal with Blood Moon?

Ixidron says... #8

@vTempest Slivers can produce mana, so you can keep playing slivers, there is also Harmonic Sliver and Necrotic Sliver, but if I have none of those in the battlefield I cannot deal with Blood Moon.

I always have Virulent Sliver in my mainboard, or in my sideboard. Great against soul sisters and it stacks, so it's a game ender as well

If you plan on going the pain land route, i'd suggest using Mana Confluence over City of Brass. With city of brass you take a damage whenever it is tapped, so in a format crawling with Pestermite and Deceiver Exarchs, you might take extra damage without needing to, but if you use Mana Confluence, you have to pay life to get the mana, not be pinged whenever it is tapped.

What is your opinion about Pulmonic Sliver? It offers both flying, and could keep slivers out of the graveyard; or does it's mana cost outweigh it being a viable option when coupled with the speed/idea of the Galerider Slivers for fast flying and Rest in Peace keeping the graveyards clear?

I do like Pulmonic Sliver and I usually have a couple of copies in my sideboard, it's great against decks with lots of creature removal.

Since your running white you could put Rally the Ancestors to the sideboard for some graveyard fun
