''It's Ok,They're just slivers''

Commander / EDH Aggro Five Color Hive Mind Sliver





''Its ok, Ther're just slivers'' is what say when i put this deck on the table, but unfortunately people dont buy it :)

When playing chaos its everyone for him self but they always have one common enemy... yes its me.I Understand, because when the slivers are on the hunt its hard to stop them..

This deck is fun to play and its wins many games but i need to adept to the battlield and need to choose wise wich and when to play each sliver.

The reason why i choose Sliver Overlord as commander is becouse he can tutor slivers an in combo with Amoeboid Changeling and Unnatural Selection take controll of my opponents creatures.. Always fun..

Another card combo i like is Tunnel Vision + Patriarch's Bidding, a great tip someone here gave my and it works verry well.

You play Tunnel Vision and name Patriarch's Bidding and with a bit of luck you put as many slivers in the graveyard. them play patriarch en there you go;)

There are different ways to play this deck and like i said: i need to adept. But the main tactic always is: get many slivers.. finnish of your opponents..

This deck remains a work in progres, i could use some more and better tutors and i'm still perfecting the mana base. but overall this deck runs verry good and is so much fun to play.

Im always take tips and suggestions to heart, and if you have some love for slivers and you like this deck don't forget to UPVOTE.That would be verry much appricitated!!

Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, and Cruel Tutor are all ones I prefer to Diabolic Tutor or diabolic revelation personally. I've never run Slivers personally, but a friend of mine swears by running Defense of the Heart in it.

Lucky_Dutch says... #3

@midget_overlord vampiric an cruel tutor are on my to buy list :) i'm curently perfecting my elven deck.

Defense of the Heart is indeed a great card i'm going to use in this deck.

Heya, this deck looks pretty sweet overall. I haven't personally played Slivers in EDH, but I have in Pauper and a little in Modern. I'm pretty sure that Frenetic Sliver would be quite good here. The card looks bad, as it has a chance to sacrifice the creature, but keep in mind you'd only use the ability if a sliver's getting targeted with removal anyway. It basically makes half your opponent's removal spells just completely fizzle. Telekinetic Sliver and Darkheart Sliver are both pretty sweet as well. Maybe consider getting rid of some of the redundant slivers for those?

Recently added Intruder Alarm to my sliver deck. Makes infinite mana possible - endgame with the right cards in play.

Thorncaster Sliver is sick with the deathtouch sliver in play

Constricting Sliver also super powerful with its ETB effect.

Lucky_Dutch says... #6

Whiskerbro Frenetic Sliver sure looks like fun :) Telekinetic Sliver Darkheart Sliver are also great options.. tnx

enpc says... #7

You need Homeward Path. Also Coat of Arms is unnecessary here - it would be better suited as a Green Sun's Zenith to tutor Sliver Legion or a mana sliver.

May 7, 2017 6:13 p.m.

lucal13 says... #8

Would you consider All Is Dust as a great board wipe especially with Ghostflame Sliver on board?

May 7, 2017 6:14 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #9

@ enpc lucal13 yes to both :) great sugetstions, got all the cards put them in right away, tnx

Firewake Sliver in,Blur Sliver out.I don't know how you sliver people constantly miss it, but it helps my suggestion count at least.

May 9, 2017 5:05 p.m.

Faiths_Guide says... #13

No problem, Lucky_Dutch!

Mind checking out my account (1000+ custom cards)?


I'm trying to get people from both sites to recognize the other XD

May 9, 2017 7:41 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #14

Faiths_Guide DUDE those are awesome! Those cards only digital or also on printe?

May 9, 2017 8:28 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #15

Shamen3mill you are right, it's indeed the better option

May 9, 2017 9:10 p.m.

liquid_water says... #16

How about Spreading Plague? Works wonders with Sliver Hivelord.

May 9, 2017 9:15 p.m.

have you considered Megantic Sliver?

May 9, 2017 9:37 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #18

No not really, to high mana cost

Some suggestions for you man. Dormant Sliver is an insanely good sliver since you also play Intruder Alarm. If you have Dormant Sliver, Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver, Heart Sliver,and Intruder Alarm you almost have an infinite combination. You cast a sliver using your slivers as mana, you untap all of your slivers then draw a card. If you continuously draw slivers you essentially just keep adding mana to your mana pool (tapping ALL slivers and letting the extra mana build up) and drawing your entire deck. Eventually, you draw Sliver Legion to play and attack all out. I use this combination in my slivers deck, and even though it seems like a lot many people don't realize they're combo pieces until you start. I usually prefer Firewake Sliver instead of heart because I can sac Dormant Sliver when I get enough slivers on the battlefield to be able to attack. Sliver Overlord is also good to add to search out slivers if you rip drawing them, and of course Crystalline Sliver is good to make sure no one can target removal any of the combo pieces.

Since you play Patriarch's Bidding I would also suggest Tunnel Vision. You name Patriarch's Bidding when you cast Tunnel Vision and mill until you find it. Hopefully you hit a haste sliver, but when you draw the next turn you name slivers getting everything back.

Lastly, have you considered playing the gates and Maze's End as an alternate wincon? Maze's End also helps you fix your colors when you can search for the rite gates.

If you want to take a look at my deck I wouldn't mind any kind of suggestions.

As I drew my last breath, they took it from me.

Whiskerbro says... #20

Uh Pheardemons, Sliver Overlord is his commander.

May 9, 2017 10:24 p.m.

Pheardemons says... #21

Whiskerbro I never said it wasn't. Not trying to be rude, but what was the reason for telling me that?

May 9, 2017 10:33 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #22

Pheardemons tnx for the comment :)

i think Whiskerbro ment that you said that Sliver Overlord is also good to add, but its already in there :)

I never thougt of the combo with Dormant Sliver and Intruder Alarm etc, i will try it out.

My only concern is Crystalline Sliver when its on the battlefield i cant target my own slivers anymore,because they have shroud en no hexproof.Thats why i added Kira, Great Glass-Spinner

Im going to addTunnel Visionbecause thats just bad ass haha

the thing i use is Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling to put my opponents creatures under my controll, or take controll then use Necrotic Sliver sac it en destroy another creature :)

ill take a look at your deck and i might have some tips:)

Alkarius says... #23

Ghostway is not a bad choice with the abundance of board wipes in EDH, but its conditional... I have a very similar deck, but I switched my commander to the Sliver Hivelord to prevent shuffling my deck 1000 times and to nullify most board wipes... Cyclonic Rift and any exile wipes still suck though.

May 10, 2017 10:03 a.m.

Faiths_Guide says... #24

Lucky_Dutch,They are printable (and you're welcome to do so), but I haven't personally printed any.

You can upload customs to Untap and play with them though!

May 10, 2017 12:08 p.m.

Pheardemons says... #25

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry I wasn't more accurate in what I meant. I was meaning that Sliver Overlord was good to add to the combo I was mentioning. It was a card to put in addition to the four main ones. Also thanks for the comment on mine!

I like slivers and had a deck at one point and it was similar but now I'm working on a red white angel deck with some demons mixed in

May 11, 2017 10:16 a.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #29

@whales thats sounds cool, doe you have a prototype?

May 11, 2017 10:29 a.m.

whales says... #30

yeah it's Iroas's Judgement it was originally going to be standard but then most cards were illegal so I went to casual then though commanders more fun than casual so I'm making it a EDH

Thanks for showing interest in my stuff Lucky_Dutch (I, by the way, am also Dutch). For you, and all others, I've created this forum discussion here on TappedOut to discuss!

+1, for Slivers. I love, love, LOVE slivers. Honestly, I'm just a bunch of slivers in a trench coat and a hat. Go Slivers!

Why are you playing Amoeboid Changeling and Unnatural Selection when you only have 2 non-slive creatures?

May 13, 2017 5:55 p.m.

Sjorpha says... #35

Nevermind, missed the lords ability

May 13, 2017 5:58 p.m.

TheRedGoat says... #36

So having faced down a slivers deck before, you need more creature support cards I feel. Like more things that stop your stuff from dying or else keeps opponents from interacting with your turn. Grand Abolisher or Asceticism and the like.

Conversely you can run Seedborn Muse as a means of abusing your commanders tutor effect on everybody else's turn. I've died many, many times to that level of synergy.

Apologies for not mentioning cuts. I'm restricted on time. Will check out again later today.

studajew says... #38

Solid build but do you really need to run Heartstone? You only have 2 creatures with activated abilities. I can see the appeal to lower the cost of Sliver Overlords' effect but wouldn't you want a card that does more?

May 19, 2017 10:46 a.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #39

studajew it always proved usefull, but if you have a good suggestion I might consider it :)

May 19, 2017 11:04 a.m.

studajew says... #40

There's a bunch of cards to fill that slot. Steely Resolve, Mirari's Wake, and Crib Swap could all work in your build. Here is my deck Sweet and Low (Sliver EDH). Would love to hear your feedback on our different choices.

I have coined the term Sliver Hate™ to describe that scenario, as a Sliver player I too encounter so much hate all too often. We Hive minds need to stick together. #HivemindLivesMatter

Nukulargear says... #42

In my Sliver EDH deck, I threw in a Door to Nothingness for laughs. Also threw in all the Gates and Maze's End but that's more because I can't afford Shocks/Duals/Fetches. The 11 lands coming in tapped slow things down a lot and my friends don't immediately despise my existence for playing the deck.

May 22, 2017 1:27 p.m.

Thoughts on Aura Shards v Harmonic Sliver? It's protected less but won't fire-back on your own cards

May 22, 2017 7:05 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #44

@Nukulargear i have thougt about it just for fun..maby i will play it just to try. I do like it hahah

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid no i did not , but now i do.Harmonic Sliver back-fired on me a couple of times now.. Tnx for the sollution ;)

May 23, 2017 4:44 p.m.

Lucky_Dutch says... #45

LVL_666Soooo true.. some times it isnt fun anymore but i wont give up haha

I must admit that i like some of the reactions like..''oww my gawwwdd slivers.. noooo''And when some ''team up'' against you,it just means that they are afraid hahaBut i want to build this deck to perfection so they realy have a reason to hate it..

And yes we realy need to stick to gether.. we are a rare breed hahaha ;)

Shamen3mill says... #46

Those who gang up on sliver decks have had historical reasons to do so, friends pressure, getting stomped by a hive themselves, or in my case, being introduced to the game of MTG via getting to play a sliver deck.

We swarm against it because we respect the power that slivers brings to the table. So long as you don't treat the sudden archenemy status that you earn as unwarrented, the hate will only last a game or two.

Also sorry for bein sarcastic an dickish >3>; I think the goal was to give off some of the anti-slivers sentiment, but it came out wrong, an made me uncomfortable, an made me obsess about the thread for far too long D:<

Good luck terrorizing the board-state Dutch. Think I'll lurk elsewhere.

May 24, 2017 2:44 a.m.

Land suggestions :P

There's a bunch of good lands and serve functions, but a bunch of them come in tapped; I'll focus on lands that come in untapped, and can produce any color. The first ones to come to mind are Tarnished Citadel, Rhystic Cave, and Thran Quarry (which is great in creature-heavy decks, like Forbidden Orchard in your deck).

In lower priority, consider Forsaken City, maybe Transguild Promenade (which is just name of your Rupture Spire, but I'd rather have one of the vivid lands), Pillar of the Paruns, and Grand Coliseum (the shittier Forbidden City). There's also other lands that give an immediate, one color use, but aren't as stable.. like Aether Hub, Archaeological Dig, Tendo Ice Bridge, Crumbling Vestige, Undiscovered Paradise, and Rainbow Vale.

In addition, I would trade your Gemstone Mine with something like Crystal Quarry or Cascading Cataracts. In a five color deck, you won't be searching for a basic land that much. So consider some ramp that tutors for any land your little heart desires.. like Expedition Map, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Tolaria West, and Crop Rotation.

Hope this helps, I'm always here.

Lucky_Dutch says... #48

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoidThe first thing im going to do is to work on the mana base.The ''enters the battlefield tapped'' is what i realy dislike about this deck,it slows me down.I will consider your options..

Do you think more fetch could do the trick?

May 25, 2017 5:48 p.m.

buford420 says... #49

Amulet of Vigor for the tapped mana

May 25, 2017 5:54 p.m.

Well some of the lands are rather expensive, but like Tropical Island and such, but I'm surprised they aren't banned yet. There's also filter lands, they fix mana instead of produce; there's pain lands, there great and low price, but might deal a bunch of damage in a five color deck with Glacial Chasm or something. The fetch lands are ok, they can tutor for shock lands or the new amonkhet lands, but usually you'll end up loosing three life and it takes up a land in your deck.

In my opinion, if you're running a bunch of fetch lands, I would consider more mana fixing cards; there's Joiner Adept, Chromatic Lantern, Prismatic Omen, Mycosynth Lattice, or Amulet of Vigor (like buford420 mentioned). If I ran a five-color deck, I would most likely keep the shock lands and at least two of the mana fixing I just mentioned, and choose between the amonkhet lands or fetch lands (even with Crucible of Worlds, Splendid Reclamation, Life from the Loam, etc). In addition, I would have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Reflecting Pool (alongside your Exotic Orchard), and a bunch of the lands I mentioned in my other comment (any color immediately).

I'm always here, if anyone else needs help too. Hope this helps

May 25, 2017 6:38 p.m.

Oh, I forgot something. Continuing my other comment, stay away from lands like battle/ tango lands that rely on basic lands; we don't like basic lands in this deck, they're too.. basic. Stick along the lines of scar/ fast lands (but I would choose between those or filter lands, they're both late game), and check lands if you're sticking with the lands like amonkhet lands and shock lands.
