As far as menace creatures go, I like Dreamstealer or Kheru Mind-Eater to deny the opponent of additional creatures. Red is also well known for menace since you gain access to Labyrinth Raptor, Sonorous Howlbonder, and the odd Sin Prodder. It also has a bomb in Master of Cruelties that benefits from a lack of blockers. Silent Arbiter can accomplish a similar goal to your auras when attacking if you don't mind embracing an exalted style, possibly via Sublime Archangel.

Another option could be to embrace the large number of auras with synergetic cards like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Kor Spiritdancer, and Sage's Reverie. Some other Arrest options I like are Pillory of the Sleepless, Prison Term, or the cheap Demotion.

Ok great! Just to clarify Arrest does shut down activated abilities on the Sliver its attached to, but other Slivers can still use its given abilities?

Also had another question. When Crystalline Sliver comes into play does it remove enchants I have placed on other Slivers or are those enchantments still in play and working?

Th distinction here is that the card Manaweft Sliver, doesn't actually have any activated abilities. Instead, Manaweft Sliver has a static ability, which gives all slivers you control the ability ": add one mana of any colour", which in turn includes itself.

Because Arrest only shuts down activated abilites, it means that the manaweft sliver cannot tap for mana. However this does not actually remove the static ability, unlike a card like Lignify or Turn to Frog. So all the other slivers in play under your control can still tap away freely.

I was playing buddies Sliver deck and we get into it over how Arrest works. I told him it effects the enchanted slivers ability to activate; but other Slivers can still use the activated ability. Is that correct?

In the future, please use the Rules Q&A section of this site if you have questions about rules, cards, or card interactions. Please also link cards with double brackets, like so:

[[Batterskull]]

[[Arrest]]

Batterskull

Arrest

Equipment is distinct from the item it is equipping, with its own set of abilities.

When one Arrests the Germ, they are not also arresting the Batterskull. As such, you can still activate Batterskull's abilities.

Dude! Thank you so much for your constructive feedback and suggestions. I really appreciate it, as I want this Deck to be as good as it can be. I would love to see your build,but I didn't see it on your page.

Let's see, where to start. I agree the Birds of Paradise could be cut, but I believe hexproof/ramp creatures are better than mana rocks in this build as they offer a mana dork that has great evasion, can be enchanted to be made bigger, and can attack and/or block, therefore, better than artifacts that won't trigger my enchantresses. Land Tax not only allows me to pull all of the extra basic lands out of my deck, but also allows me to change the top card of my deck if I don't like what I see there with the Courser of Kruphix, Mul Daya Channelers, or Vizier of the Menagerie.

Arrest/Pacifism could prolly be replaced with the aura cards you suggested if I had them, I'll add those to my shopping list.

Quietus Spike, Grafted Exoskeleton again, not enchantments, and not cohesive to enchantress build. therefore inferior to bow and spear. Also, Spear of Heliod double as buff and removal. Bow of Nylea quintuple action, lifegain, removal, recursion, buff, and deathtouch.

Mana rocks, again, not enchantments. Frontier Siege, you ask?? it provides an extra 2 green mana during first main phase, and Another 2 green mana on 2nd main phase. that's 4 mana per turn. how can you top that for ramp?

Femeref Enchantress? Boardwipe insurance indeed, also every time anyone kills an enchantment I get to draw a card, including when I do it....Card draw = more cards in hand, no matter where it comes from. Speaking of card draw, I should prolly add the Reliquary Tower good call.

Gift of Immortality is one that's been in and out of the deck again and again, I like it, but there are so many good cards to choose from, and it seems to keep getting cut, I'll try it again. Replenish is great, however I don't have it, and it's pricey. Umbra Mystic I have and again, she's in and out depending on how I feel that day, or if I'm doing multiplayer, vs 1v1.

Bronzehide Lion I haven't pulled yet, And while indestructible is good, it doesn't have hexproof like it's older counterpart, Fleecemane Lion and is as such, inferior, plus it's situational, as you have to have open mana to use it's abilities, plus the loses other abilities clause is kinda weak.

I think I have Sigil of the Empty Throne I can give that a try as well. The other cards, I don't have, But I will consider them.

Again, thanks for the feedback, and I would love it if you wish to try and change my mind on any of these suggestions.

In terms of cuts to add the things I suggested:

  • Bear Umbra is powerful ramp if you can tutor it out. I get that you want the infinite Earthcraft combo, but maybe you can cut Land Tax? At least the Umbra doubles as totem armor.
  • Swap Arrest for some of the other Auras which completely disable permanents/creatures.
  • How often has Quarantine Field gone off for anything above 2?
  • Birds, Paradise Druid and Caryatid seem unneeded.
  • Bow and Spear? I run mana rocks, Quietus Spike (maybeboard) and Grafted Exoskeleton.
  • Serra's (Blessing, Embrace) are potentially underpowered. Though vigilance is very good in here.
  • I think you can cut some lands for mana rocks, personally. It lets you ramp faster on average.
  • I'm on the fence about Femeref Enchantress. She's boardwipe insurance and that's it. There are other ways to recover from wipes (Wheel of Sun and Moon), and without unlim hand size you lose a bunch to the grave. I'd suggest the land inclusions plus Renaissance.
  • Frontier Siege ??
