Bonescythe Sliver Discussion

TheoryCrafter on Slivers, the Boundless

2 months ago

For mana curve you may want to consider enchantments that have lands produce more than 1 mana at a time. This would include, but not be limited to, Fertile Ground , Trace of Abundance and Utopia Sprawl . You won't have to wait for time counters to all disappear before deploying them to the battlefield. The mana base will also be more flexible.

Some of your cards can also use an upgrade. I suggest replacing Mortify with Necrotic Sliver and Fury Sliver with Megantic Sliver until it can be replaced with Bonescythe Sliver .

Have you considered adding any combination Assault Formation , Doran, the Siege Tower (in case Harmonic Sliver backfires on you) and High Alert ? With them on the battlefield you can then sacrifice Dormant Sliver only if you have to. This will also allow for roughly the same combo with Morophon as you would with Realmwalker and Morophon.

If you choose to do this I would then recommend Teferi's Ageless Insight to boost your card draw.

If you choose not to I would suggest finding spots for cards such as Basal Sliver , and Mindlash Sliver .

Happy Hunting!

Hey, good start and nice Legion foil pull! Obviously you have to finish the manabase and you should really do that before you make any other changes. That being said here's some Sliver upgrades to consider:

Quick is very good with cascade, casting Slivers at instant speed.

What's your budget for the manabase? Would you like some advice on the manabase? Good luck with your deck.

B0NGUS on Getting Slivvy With It

I've made some cuts!

Changed Maelstrom Nexus for Descendants' Path . It's 2 mana value lower, requires 4 less colors, still casts, and doesn't care if it casts a MV greater than or equal to a creature I control.

Changed Shared Animosity for Rhystic Study . They're the same cost, but drawing cards/taxing my opponents is more important than making the hive deal more damage.

Changed Leave / Chance for Teferi's Protection . There have been multiple improvements in card draw and Chance was never used in gameplay. Leave forces me to cast all my board again.

Changed Ready / Willing for Cyclonic Rift . I needed more one-sided boardwipes, and have plenty of other forms of defense that makes Ready/Willing too redundant.

Changed Watery Grave for Vampiric Tutor . Going down to 37 lands is fine, and part of the manabase that's out of balance. Vampiric Tutor is the most powerful tutor, no explanation necessary.

Changed Polluted Delta for Overgrown Tomb (apparently it wasn't actually in the deck). Just updating imbalanced manabase, I don't need every fetch in this deck.

Changed Apex Devastator for Vanquisher's Banner . V Banner is 1/2 the cost and provides card draw upon casting. Apex Devastator was fun, and it can explode very well, but it's better elsewhere.

Changed Fury Sliver for Bonescythe Sliver . Just mana reduction costs, they both provide doublestrike. I may reconsider adding Fury Sliver back in for redundancy.

Changed Cleaving Sliver for Brood Sliver . Creating additional slivers at no cost is better than +2/+0, right?

Changed Commander's Sphere for Realmwalker . Additional sliver and card advantage, as well as scouting the top-card for cascade potential.

Changed Pillar of Origins for Prismatic Omen . Pillar of Origins is a mana rock for about 1/2 the spells in the deck, Prismatic Omen color fixes all my lands for all of the spells in the deck.

Changed Averna, the Chaos Bloom for Shifting Sliver . Averna was fun, and the mana ramp was explosive, but let's give no-non-slivers a chance to see how it impacts cascades.

Changed Explosive Vegetation for Reflections of Littjara . Reflections of Littjara doubles Mana Echoes, Distant Melody, Lavabelly, Manaweft/Gemhide, Opaline, Sedge, Spiteful, and Thorncaster effects.

Spells being considered that I own currently; Hollowhead Sliver , Doomskar , & Pyre of Heroes .

Spells being considered that are being purchased soon; Necrotic Sliver , Root Sliver , Bloom Tender , Pulmonic Sliver , Spoils of Victory , Darksteel Mutation , Synapse Sliver , Magma Sliver , Intruder Alarm , Horned Sliver , and Amoeboid Changeling .

Galerider Sliver is being purchased soon and will be changed for Winged Sliver .

StumpyIB on Getting Slivvy With It

I love Slivers so like everyone else, I am happy to help another in the Hive. Some quick suggestions on my part: Galerider Sliver, Brood Sliver, Toxin Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver, but most importantly, you need Shifting Sliver.

On the non-sliver side, I highly recommend Descendants' Path and Prismatic Omen

RedFlag on Sliver Overlord

Bonescythe Sliver over Horned Sliver for sure. Also, Nature's Claim or Abrupt Decay over Krosan Grip, and I'd just give Triumph of the Hordes a try.

I would throw in Sliver Queen, Coat of Arms, Belligerent Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver,Lavabelly Sliver, Sliver Hivelord, Sliver Legion, Sliver Overlord, and Syphon Sliver. I would remove a lot of the slivers that give other slivers an ability that costs 2 mana to activate.

Mortlocke on Sliver Tribal deck building, need …

1 year ago

Oh, and a tangential thought: Having a strategy where you can populate the board quickly goes really nice Stuffy Sliver. Two Slivers that came to mind were Brood Sliver and Bonescythe Sliver. Their synergy or combo plays as follows:

Bonescythe Sliver grants each sliver Double strike, giving them two combat damage assignment steps. When you combine that with Brood Sliver you gain 1 Sliver creature token generated per combat damage step that assigns damage to an opponent. A sliver doubling season if you will.

So, with the previously mentioned on the battlefield you could have a large amount of tokens on the board that would give you many more Stuffy Sliver damage assignments.

Mortlocke on I will have just a sliver of that rainbow cake.

In regards to sideboards - they don't exist in EDH. This is a singleton format where players bring their decks as they are. So...unless those are cards you are considering for the deck - ya gotta cut em. Now here are some suggestions on what you could put in the deck to help it run more consistently:

HONORABLE MENTIONS FOR ADDITIONAL CUTS: I know I went over a bunch of cuts in my previous post, but here are some more suggestions -

  • Assemble the Legion/Retreat to Emeria/Birthing Boughs: You don't need Sliver Queen to make more tokens in an efficient manner. Allow me to introduce you to Brood Sliver and Hive Stirrings. Why go throught the trouble of making a janky combo that creates soldier tokens/changelings in cheap Sliver costumes when you could just...make Slivers? You also have the added flavor of getting double the tokens per combat damage assignment step when you have both Brood Sliver and Bonescythe Sliver out on the battlefield. Worse yet - Legion, Emeria and Boughs have absolutely no synergy with your commander outright. you have to hope you have Hivestone on the battlefield. AND THEN even if you have alll of the parts and pieces on the board you have literally zero cards in your deck that are CMC 0 - as tokens have a CMC of 0 - creating a total non-bo that just allows you to only be able to shuffle your library. That's it.
