Well I was lucky enough to have enough "shock lands" included in various precons etc. I bought early on when starting again with MTG (I played for a bit as a kid back in 1995 but didn´t keep any cards), so I´m set for my Commander/EDH decks - but it pains me to see Modern Lists with 500+ bucks dumped into the manabase alone, or so it feels ;)
oh well - I´m not very competitive and nobody in my playgroup is buying expensive cards, so it´s not going to be a problem for me personally.

Wow, RE: the lands thing - I just checked what they are going for now, and the prices are absurd right now!
might possibly have to wait until Watery Grave rotates out of Standard, but then again the prices for lands are generally stupid in MTG... sad they don´t see the need for reprints when some lands are going for 20+ EACH (!), and I´m talking about cards that were reprinted only last year... crazyness.

Yeah it´s been on my "want" list for a while, recently found it for a good price and just had to add it!
Only thing I do plan on eventually getting for this deck now is maybe a Gravecrawler, if I can ever find one that isn´t super expensive.
Then probably Audacious Thief out and Gravecrawler in. More Sac-Fodder :)

Added Kokusho and replaced all the superbasic Swamps with Full-Art BFZ ones... soooo... I´m officially in the "pimping" stage, I think this deck is pretty much done for now :)
After talking to Unhallowed here, I might be experimenting with switching out the commander slot between K'rrik, Yawgmoth himself and/or Vilis, just for some variety and to make my playgroup think it´s a different deck from time to time ;)
Still would appreciate any feedback on this - and if you have a similar deck, please leave a link to it, I´ll surely go check it out! Thanks!

Nice idea, I love Dimir!

good point, and I am also already noticing people rolling their eyes when they see K'rrik out... that phyrexian mana thing is pretty broken to be honest.
Might be good to show them that the deck doesn´t just work because of the commander, but that it´s just... good! :)

and THAT´s when you have to tutor for Sliver Hivelord and really get the others panicking! :-P
("indestructible slivers?" OH NO!")

Unha110w3d same here, saw the decklist for Anje and wanted quite a few of the cards for other decks, so it was a no-brainer to buy it.
Interesting point about the commander being swappable, which is obvious of course - I just had not considered it yet. maybe i should! :)

@Unhal110w3d I´ll have to check/upload/update my own sliver list, haven´t played the deck in a bit - for the same reason hehe: nothing paints a target on you like having a sliver commander ;)
October 2, 2019 7:30 a.m.
oh and you should definitely look at getting K'rrik's daddy, the OG Yawgmoth, Thran Physician in there - if for nothing else, then for flavor reasons!
October 1, 2019 3:21 a.m.
oh now I see why you had so many tips on my K'rrik deck ;) nice one! I see a lot of the same cards in yours that I have.
I also have the suspicion you also took apart a Anje Falkenrath precon deck for this?
What makes you run Vilis over K'rrik in this? or do you switch them around ever?

nice to see you´re a fellow Sliver player as well :) your deck looks real good and waaaaay different than mine!
I have since switched out The First Sliver for a Sliver Overlord as my commander, and also added a Sliver Hivelord into the 99 as well - that makes it pretty nasty to play against since as soon as I have my commander out (pretty often on Turn 4, sometimes even 3) I can dig up Hivelord and protect my whole board by making it indestructible :)
of course, those were the 2 most expensive cards I ever bought and my playgroup now hates me and refuses to play against the ("broken") deck :-P
I´ll try and upload it here soon to get your opinion on it!

Tested a bit more, Demon of Catastrophes did well - this time in a 3 player match. Had to "politics" a bit to save myself from getting pummelled to death in the first 3-4 rounds (got mana-screwed bad), so I pulled some deals and survived long enough to Exsanguinate for 18 :)
-> after that, I was public enemy number 1 of course, and for future games I´ll probably have no way to talk myself out of trouble anymore.
I did end up winning the game, Black Market + Open the Graves + Endless Cockroaches were my 3 MVPs in that game ! :)
So now I need to further test if there is actually too little mana in the deck, or if I only got unlucky!

Unha110w3d funny you should say that, I just put the Demon Of Catastrophes into the Deck to try it out tonight! thanks for the suggestioh, I'll update the deck after testing it,

the "tl;dr" part of this is: it has to DIE to trigger Liliana's emblem.
Dying implies going to the graveyard - but tokens cease to exist once they get there, ergo cannot be brought back.
they are not CARDS, after all.
(please note: this is a very crude layman´s terms explanation I would use with my playgroup for example - please rever to Caerwyn and Kogarashi above for REAL explanations ;)
