Delta-117 Deckling

I started playing Magic the Gathering around the time of Journey into Nyx and since then I have come to enjoy this trading card game a lot. I have gone on to collect a growing number of cards from both sets old and new. I play generally a bit of near everything; Standard, Commander, Modern, Pauper, drafts and other limited events like prereleases.

My favourite color combination would be Although as of late has been growing on me, particularly in standard where I have been playing such colours since Kaladesh.

Besides that commander is probably one of, if not my most favourite format, which I first started with a deck led by Vorel of the Hull Clade about 3 years ago. I became aware of Slivers and besides Vorel I also started a Sliver Overlord deck as slivers have just become my favorite creatures. While none of my decks I consider yet complete, i'm always looking to improve them with new card additions from new sets, and all the while slowly improving the mana bases of all, particularly that of 5 colour slivers. Recently I have made significant upgrades to Atraxas Praetors Voice (which has since replaced Vorel of the Hull Clade), like Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Teferi's Protection, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Damnation, Watery Grave and others. As well as more shocks and fetches for Sliver Overlord, now only a mix of 6 shocks/fetches are needed for one of each.

I started playing during Journey Into Nyx as well.

You seem like an interesting brewer, so I've added you as a friend.

Yeah I was typing it as llanowar elf rather than Llanowar Elves at first!

Anyways this is just a deck I started to put together, not sure if it could be any good as I feel some numbers of certain cards may be wrong, but sometimes I just like brewing decks even if I don't ever build them.

I should really donate at some point t after having been on this site for a bit more than 2 years now, I hate not being able to edit.

I forgot to space everything, and that last Sliver should be:

Cannibalistic Sliver

Devour 2

Sliver creatures you control have Devour 2

Hey once again, I thought since you came up with an idea for that Sliver, I would come up with a few of my own to share :)

Blitz Sliver (Gave yours a name).

FlashWhen Blitz Sliver enters the battlefield, you may counter target spell, and you may play slivers this turn as though they had flash and they gain when you play this creature you may counter target spell." 1/2

Nightmare Sliver

Slivers you control have When this creature deals combat damage to a player, he or she discards a card at random from his or her hand.3/1

Apex Sliver

Slivers you control have hexproof.7/5

Requiem Sliver

Whenever Requiem Sliver or another Sliver you control dies,

Blossoming Sliver

Whenever Blossoming Sliver or another Sliver creature you control enters the battlefield, you may put a +1/+1 counter on any number of target slivers you control0/1

Revenant Sliver

Other sliver creatures you control have undying.

Malignant Sliver

Whenever Malignant Sliver or another Sliver creature you control dies, all other creatures get a -1/-1 counter. 3/2

?Fanged? Sliver

Sliver creatures you control gain first strike, and get +1/+02/2

Hello LVL_666, I hate to be the bearer of this news... but its been confirmed that there will be no Slivers with Dominaria in April :(

By the sound of it, some suspect that this is a move to give Slivers a larger significance later alongside the likes of the Phyrexians , etc within the story maybe? Anyways, heres the current explanation :

One of the challenges of designing Dominaria was there were so many possibilities of what to include (more expansions, for example,occurred in Dominaria than the rest of the Top 5 visited planes combined) and a limited amount of space available.Slivers were on the short list, but were problematic in that they require a significant commitment to space and doing so would have lessened how many other references we could make, so we made the tough decision to leave them out of Dominaria.This shouldnt be read as a sign that R&D isnt a fan of Slivers. We know how beloved they are and are committed to bring them back in the future, unfortunately not in the upcoming set.

I would take out 2x Hypnotic Siren, and possibly 1x Warden of Evos Isle, since all you really need is just one out on the field at least to be of benefit to your other fliers, and add 2-3 Thought Scours.

Then cut 1-2x islands for either of these two lands, both are good. The first because it benefits from Favorable Winds, gives you a creature at times maybe when needed for Military Intelligence, or simply a blocker after your creature(s) might be all killed. While the other helps with making sure you will be flipping Delver of Secrets  Flip more often.

Hey this looks like a good start here, my suggestions would be too consider adding a few more instants and sorceries first of all to increase the odds of flipping Delver of Secrets  Flip. One idea would be Opt, or better yet Thought Scour as you do have a few cards here that care about exiling creatures from the graveyard as additional costs.

Then a few non basics might be worth consideration I think also, such as 1-2 Faerie Conclave, or Halimar Depths. Not to many of these do you want however as they do enter tapped after all.

Thanks! I see that you have always been active as well as helpful to others on here, so I have added you also.

I only started back with Journey into Nyx, and so I would happen to say Oath, of the gatewatch and Eldritch Moon were my favorite sets.

Getting to play with cards like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Reality Smasher, Thought-Knot Seer, Bearer of Silence, Grasp of Darkness, Shrine of the Forsaken Gods and Oblivion Sower (bfz) and others were a lot of fun in this midrange mono black eldrazi deck I use to play for standard.

Eldritch Moon I got to build my most competitive (and expensive) to date standard deck around Delirium, featuring my foil Emrakul, the Promised End I had from a prelease kit, Traverse the Ulvenwald to search up things like Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Noxious Gearhulk, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet usually if not Emrakul. It was my first time playing a graveyard centric deck, with a lot of synergy, and overall it was the most fun I had with a standard deck since I started standard close to the end of Khans block being about to rotate. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet I would say is one of my favorite mythics of all time, I played the card from shortly after the time it was printed to the very day it rotated.

Hey I play an Approach deck also, and I think you should consider 1x Azor, the Lawbringer.

Heres my slightly more expensive list if you want to look for more ideas. I use a few other cards not here like Baffling End and Disallow. But Your deck could benefit from a few more Essence Scatters perhaps over Cancel?

Yes... Some thought it was fake when revealed yesterday but its clearly real. Not the most exciting green mythic when there was other options for sure. I still have hope though that there will be another good green rare as already mentioned in my above post.

March 1, 2018 8:44 a.m.

Pact of Negation reprint.

March 1, 2018 8:14 a.m.

Yeah it feels like more of a rare. Well hopefully either Noble Hierarch, Scapeshift, or Doubling Season are in this as a rare to make up for it.

March 1, 2018 7:11 a.m.

Now if they just at least print some or even most of this, I will be happy with the set: Noble Hierarch,Demonic Tutor, Karn Liberated or Mox Opal, Arcbound Ravager, the tron lands,Ancient Stirrings, Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere.

February 28, 2018 11:58 a.m.

And filter lands I knew it after seeing these multicolour mythics!

(Flooded Grove, Fetid Heath, Cascade Bluffs, etc).

February 28, 2018 10:40 a.m.

Yes I would be fine with that.

Anyways Nicol Bolas is being reprinted.

February 28, 2018 10:35 a.m.

Unlikely to happen Canadion with there already being Eladamri's Callprinted. Im surprised it never did get a place in Eternal Masters, instead they went with Green Sun's Zenith for some reason, zenith should have been in this set rather and Worldly Tutor in eternal masters.

But Im honestly hoping for them to reprint Demonic Tutor already!
