You Have Entered the Hive

The Sliver Queen provides you a rare gift - a song celebrating the might and majesty of Slivers. Listen, don't listen- it will be there all the same.

Do you like Tribal Creatures? Do you enjoy crushing your opponents with endless ranks of creatures that have indestructible, +1,000,000.../+1,000,000..., flash, flying, haste, shroud, regenerate, first strike, doublestrike, AND deathtouch? If so, then Sliver Overlord is the perfect choice for you. With its ability to tutor for any other creature in your deck, you have a complete toolkit for any situation at your disposal. With a little help from the hive Overlord can steal the opponent's most prized creatures, adding their might to your own (and making them a Sliver). Alternatively, you could use Overlord to beseech her Highness, the Queen ( queen) along with one of her treas ures you can become unstoppable - crushing your opponents' hopes and dreams with creatures that have more abilities than the card would have room for.

What is planned for this deck going forward?

Right now, the deck in my opinion has reached something similar to Homeostasis - a relatively stable equilibrium. All I do is simply keep an eye out for new product with new cards that I can experiment with in this deck. Also, a big thanks to the TappedOut community - as folks are always suggesting cards that I've completely missed. Since wizards is going in a new direction - producing more "premium" versions of cards i'll always try and swoop in and acquire them - as my weird magpie brain will sometimes make me black out and I wake up with a brand new shiny and much lighter wallet (and an annoyed real-life Sliver Queen)

Additionally, I've finally come within range of reaching a big milestone for this deck - to be the highest ranked Sliver Overlord commander deck as well as the highest ranked Sliver Tribal deck on TappedOut. As of November 2019 The Queen's Egg is less than 100 upvotes from that goal. It's possible. Just need to be more aggressive about advertising my deck - which isn't exactly something I want to do...but I have to, i'm so close!

Lastly, I think between this deck and my other two - I don't see myself really brewing any more new decks. I have a tendency to try and acquire premium, powerful (or both) instances of cards. My wallet can handle only so much. I'll always be looking to try and improve my Magnum Opus - this monstrous love letter to the Tribe of Tribes. But to scratch that deck-brewing itch I try and keep a look out for new Sliver decks being made - and always offer my two cents, anything that can help that player build the best Sliver deck they can. Because a victory for one Sliver a victory for all. We Sliver players are a Hive mind race :)

If you've read this far into my deck description then all I can say is thank you. If you're looking for any help, inspiration, whatever - don't hesitate to ask. Also I do help with decks that aren't Sliver again if you need help, talk to your friendly neighborhood group of poorly disguised Slivers.

The (Actual) Queen's Egg

My amazing wife got me this custom made one of a kind deck box. Themed after the Sliver Queen (my all time favorite MTG Card), it's made out of a cast resin, with magnets to hold it all together. The box holds a commander deck double sleeved no problem, and was hand made by the one and only Liefkicker. His website is here: Liefkicker Studio. Note: These boxes are expensive but you get what you pay for. Liefkicker deckboxes are custom art pieces of the highest quality that hold your most prized of decks. Slivers will always be special to me, not to mention I made (or will make) sacrifices to get each card for my deck. The first time I revealed my box, the whole table just stopped and stared at it with wonder. "That looks evil", was the first compliment I ever got. People's eyes practically never left my end of the table (mostly because I was playing slivers...but the box is simply gorgeous). Again, i'm completely happy with this deck box, and I will cherish it for the rest of my life. If you want to know more, or want to see a more comprehensive review about Liefkicker's products, I suggest you look at the TolarianCommunityCollege's review: A Review of The Hedron Box for Magic: The Gathering Also, Shout Out to the Professor!

For the few of you who have been keeping track of this deck's progress Gattison crafted some awesome and funny song lyrics which are a parody of We Care Alot by Faith No More. I made an update about this before, but over time it may become lost from the front page, so here's another location where it may be discovered. As a reminder you can find Gattison's Studio right here. He takes requests! So don't hesitate to contact him, for every deck deserves it's own song. So without further ado, here is the official song of The Queen's Egg:


The coding for this primer was developed by Epochalyptik here.


Updates Add

So for those who aren't tracking, Wizards now sells single cards - but what makes that relevant (at least to this deck) is that one of those cards is an ultra premium alternate art Sliver Overlord promo card made available through the Secret Lair. The icing on the cake is that my favorite commander will be sold on my Birthday with AWESOME alternate art - which is 08 December, starting at 09:00AM. I'm nothing but excited to pick it up. I must say that I haven't been this excited for a birthday in a long while.

Now, i'll just have to motivate myself to finally update the deck's accordion...
