GoblinElectromancer on UR Storm

6 days ago

my storm deck has 4 Gifts Ungiven and 4 Baral, Chief of Compliance. They both make a very large difference and I recommend them. I would play 4 Opt rather than 1 and cut Peer Through Depths, Desperate Ravings, Divination, and Chart a Course. Also 4 Goblin Electromancer instead of 3. Good luck getting it faster!

The deck seems nice but its lacing in win cons you wont kill people with Grapeshot and maybe with Guttersnipe I think you should put in Talrand, Sky Summoner, Young Pyromancer, Docent of Perfection  Flip, Murmuring Mystic, Chasm Skulker, Aetherflux Reservoir or Aria of Flame as you see fit. also you can replace Merfolk Looter with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and Goblin Electromancer with Baral, Chief of Compliance. and you really want to go crazy put in Thousand-Year Storm

I would consider adding a couple Lullmage Mentors and a couple Baral, Chief of Compliances

These are some to think about but pricy: Monastery Mentor Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

These are two early game plays that would be STRONG: Primal Amulet  Flip Baral, Chief of Compliance

This is a really good second extra turn spell Nexus of Fate

Doomsday! We're bringin' it back!

After some interesting conversation on the Zur discord, I'd like to try out Doomsday as a backup win condition along with the existing slim Consultation package. Making some painful cuts to facilitate that.

Cut:

Of these, I'm most interested in finding a way to get Smothering Tithe and Negate back into the list.

Added:

Hopefully I get to test these lines out in the next few games.

Yarok - You didn't link your deck. You can do it like this:

[[deck:The Song of Phyresis]] 
Also, I tried searching for it on the site and it didn't show up :\

Wicker - You can link cards like this:

[[card:Sliver Queen]] 

As for my thoughts on each card? I'll try and keep my tangents short lol.

  • Disallow: is cool, but not very good in a Sliver deck because it belongs in a Baral, Chief of Compliance deck. I mean, not only does it feature him in the card art, it actually lowers the CMC to , making the card a strictly better counterspell. I slotted in Mana Drain, but if cost is an issue and you want a good to decent counterspell that is not Counterspell i'd consider Forbid, Mana Leak, Arcane Denial, Hinder, Rewind, or Dissipate.

  • Kindred Summons: Cool. But can be a massive dude of a card if you dont have any topdeck manipulation ala Scroll Rack, Mirri's Guile, or Sensei's Divining Top. Notable combinations with this card would be Worldly Tutor or Vampiric Tutor.

  • Mystical Tutor: If your deck relies heavily on interaction/instant speed removal then this wouldn't be bad inclusion. The only issue is that MT won't be doing much outside of getting you some potential interaction, meaning that you'll be holding up mana you could be using to better establish your boardstate.

  • Coat of Arms / Door of Destinies / Vanquisher's Banner: Depends on how you want to build your deck - if you want to rely primarily on combat damage being your wincon then any of the previously mentioned are worth it. I'd run all three in addition to Shared Animosity, Magma Sliver and Sliver Legion.

  • Heartstone: Be careful with this one. It's effect applies to your opponents' creatures as well. I'd never include this because I like to be shrewd and not unknowingly enable my opponents to win. If you insist on including this you better be sure you're going to win on the turn you play it.

  • Herald's Horn: Seems like good card advantage. I'd choose between this and Rhystic Study.

  • Distant Melody: I generally don't like spells that are contingent on how many creatures I have in play, because it's only good under very specific conditions that can be influenced by opponents. I'd go with Dormant Sliver or Synapse Sliver.

  • Kindred Dominance: This card is super cool. I'm considering slotting this in/play testing this for Toxic Deluge. That CMC of 7 hurts though.

  • Living Death: A cool card. I'm considering slotting it in for Patriarch's Bidding to playtest.

  • Cryptolith Rite: Is an okay card. I apply the same logic to this card as I would Distant Melody. This card is only as good as the number of creatures you have in play, which can be influenced by opponents. If someone boardwipes and this card is in hand it's literally a dead card.

  • Unnatural Selection: A fun card that used to be in this deck. I eventually cut it because it was banned in my local LGS which was hosting an EDH league. It obviously has great synergy with Sliver Overlord - but nothing else. The card is pretty niche - but it's fun. If you want to go for a more casual build with Sliver Overlord at the helm, then i'd run this.

FaiberJC that's a really weird rule but there are quite a lot of useful humans/wizards I believe. Bob and Notion thief are human, Thassa's Oracle is a wizard. That means you need 7 more...

Try to cut cards that are similar in function. You will also not want cursed totem with more creatures that tap for some ability.
