LVL_666 Deckling

I'm literally a bunch of poorly-disguised slivers hiding in a hat and trench coat.

I enjoy making decks, but what I enjoy even more is making deck pages as I'm having a blast experimenting with CSS. Additioanlly, I love easter eggs. So I tend to hide them in all of my deck pages.

Thank you for looking over my deck! I love the input you gave! I have been playing since I was 6 with my father and it's something I have cherished since. I did fix that one combo mentioning Sliver Overlord so it's more clear. I do plan to find a place for a few of your suggestions as well. And about my first combo, I have tested the deck over and over. It doesn't always hit and I don't rely on it too often in all honesty. It's also more of for me to get to a point where I can run a certain combo to end the game. But most of all I play with a group where we are there to have fun, the game gives my friend group a reason to stay in touch and have a good time. Never been a fan of decks that win turn 3, just ones that keep the game interesting and fun! I was actually working on this deck with a friend I haven't talked to in about 3 years and it was just amazing to come up with different ideas together and construct the deck! A little off track but thank you again for your input! It was greatly appreciated and great info :)

Hey Loonmoon18, my Queen's Egg is always a work in progress- but thank you for the nice words. I began my sliver deck back in college as well, in the ancient times of 2006. Around the time Time Spiral came out, and the introduction of the incredible Sliver Legion. Ah, those were the times. Anywho, i'll gladly give my opinion about your deck.

Hello! I love your EDH sliver deck and I was hoping you can give a look over mine? I will take any thoughts and considerations :) P.S. I am a college student so money is tight but any card I can just put it on the back burner for later. Thank you and have a great day!

Hey Loonmoon18, very interesting take on a EDH sliver deck. You've went in a direction I would have never thought to explore. I do like your outside the box thinking, but I do have some concerns regarding the viability of some of your listed combos. For example, "2. Combo 1 + Dormant Sliver = draw all the cards you need to kick off any other combo" That's a hard combo to pull off because it requires 5 cards to make it work. Those are 5 separate targets that could be removed for almost any reason by an opponent. I would try to keep your key combos within the 3 to 4 card range just to keep things more viable. Speaking of viable, I have to give credit where credit is due - "Sliver Overlord(Find slivers)+(Venom Sliver or Toxin Sliver)+(Striking Sliver or Bonescythe Sliver)+Hunter Sliver = make certain creatures fight and kill their creatures" - that is a really cool combo. I would remove Sliver Overlord from that mentioning though, as he really isn't part of that combo, more of just another tutor. But between Venom, Striking, and Hunter Sliver you have an a form of targeted removal as opposed to merely a deterrent. Nice.

I see you're working with 33 creatures...that's pretty heavy on the creatures. As more slivers hit the battlefield they grow in power, but that also means that there is a tendency to overextend. A well timed Wrath of God effect would be a huge setback, potentially putting you out of the game permanently. The solution is that you need some recursion. Some good (budget) suggestions would be Aphetto Dredging, Debtors' Knell, Breath of Life, Miraculous Recovery, Nim Deathmantle, and Beacon of Unrest to name a few. Outside of that, your deck is a great build. +1 from me!

Additional note k_drake, for my prices I went with ebay. Sure, a lot of people tend to steer clear of the place, but if you know what to look for in card quality then it's easy to spot the fakes. However, places like Card Kingdom, TCGPlayer, and Cardshark are viable options as well. Even better, you don't have to worry (as much) about cards being fake. They have more robust systems in place to prevent fakes from being sold in the first place.

k_drake, sorry about taking so long to respond to you! That was an awesome compliment, thank you. As you can tell I spent way too much time building this deck page, and way too much money building this deck :P In truth, I got lucky with most of these cards...then I basically dipped my pinky toe into the creepy creepy world of MTG: Finance and Investment. Only enough to get the masterpieces I wanted at a sane price. Delta-117 was absolutely right in his advice and assessment of the true cost of this deck. You really don't have to pay that much to build a deck based off of this model, as the majority of the cost is really the manabase. However, please allow me to add my two cents- here are some alternative land choices that have alot of synergy and are a fraction of the cost:

  • The Mirage Fetchlands: Honestly, these are the 2nd best fetchlands in all of MtG. With these you can find Basics, but at the same time you can find any of the Non-basic lands with a land "type".

  • Shock Lands: Probably the most expensive option for typed lands outside of Original Duals. These average at about $10.00 to $20.00.

  • Battle Lands: These are probably the most affordable of the typed lands, running between $3.50 and $6.00 bucks. In addition to these you must run basics, but yeah...these are at a great price point. Even better is that if you're feeling spendy, you can get an expedition for about $20 to $30 on average each. There is one big drawback here though, the cycle isn't complete.

  • Dual Colored Cycling Lands: So, these are not quite as great as the previously mentioned as they will always come in tapped no matter what. The only real boon here is that you can cycle them. These are also at a pretty decent price point as well, averaging at about $2.50 or more each due to them still being in standard. If you have some already, then include them. If not, I wouldn't go out my way to acquire any of these. Unfortunately, these are also an incomplete cycle.

Those are all the lands I could name off the top of my head. Delta-117, did I miss anything? As for other parts and pieces, i'll give some more consideration to those, and write on them later. Hope this helps!

Holy S that autoplay music you got going on is loud and jarring. Not cool. My recommendation is that you turn it off by default, and have the user choose to turn it on if they want it on. I'll give your deck some honest feedback, but first things first...make the music optional.

Sorry for the radio silence all, thanks for commenting Polupus and nsolarz...by the way, don't you owe me some feedback? :)

As for Caltrops, it's for what nsolarz pointed out earlier- it's meant to be used with the Enrage ability belonging to Polyraptor, Ripjaw Raptor, and Trapjaw Tyrant. Initially, I wanted to make it a sub-theme within the deck, but I haven't found any other dinos with that ability worth including. What do you two think about Siegehorn Ceratops and Ranging Raptors? Think they're worth including? What would you cut to include them?
