Creature — Sliver
Sliver creatures you control have "When this creature enters the battlefield, you may exile target creature an opponent controls until this creature leaves the battlefield."
Constricting Sliver Discussion
2 months ago
Appreciate the suggestions as this opened my eyes to re-tooling the manabase. This is the first commander deck I built and I made the mistake of never revisiting the manabase.
I think i'm going to go a little different route though and if you have any other thoughts on this strategy i'd love to hear them.
The plan is to increase the basics land count to 13-15 with a little extra focus on green. With those i'll add the green ramp/fixing staples of Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Farseek , and Explosive Vegetation .
In addition to the basics i'm planning to add the Battle lands for another shot of entering untapped.
I understand your point about cutting these guys:
Jolrael, Empress of Beasts - Love holding a player hostage with the land destruction threat. Sad to see it go.

Hey, great deck name, +1 just for that :)
21 of the 34 lands in the manabase ETB tapped. That's a lot and not good for a five color deck. Since this is a budget manabase, budget lands to consider adding:
Are Thorncaster Sliver , Ward Sliver , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , Might Sliver and Pulmonic Sliver worth playing as five drops? The five drop Sliver here you want to play is Hivelord or Overload, playing seven other five drop creatures doesn't seem needed and can hurt the consistency of being able to play the better five drops. There's quite a few other five drop noncreature cards here too. Constricting Sliver , Fury Sliver , Megantic Sliver are six drop Slivers and they also don't seem needed.
Other cards to consider adding:
- Sol Ring
- Eladamri's Call
- Fellwar Stone
- Mystic Remora
- Amoeboid Changeling
- Homing Sliver
- Venom Sliver
- Striking Sliver
- The First Sliver
- Shared Animosity
- Dovin's Veto
Cards to consider cutting:
- Vivid Crag
- Vivid Creek
- Vivid Grove
- Vivid Marsh
- Vivid Meadow
- Thorncaster Sliver
- Ward Sliver
- Constricting Sliver
- Fury Sliver
- Megantic Sliver
- Jolrael, Empress of Beasts
- Might Sliver
- Pulmonic Sliver
- Spreading Plague
- Star of Extinction
- Door of Destinies

I would advise adding Thorncaster Sliver and Venom Sliver . Deathtouch is always nice and the 2 together can make for some really noce board clearing. I would also Highly recommend Constricting Sliver , exile is so nice.

I actually built a version of this deck but later changed it to have Jodah helm the deck. I agree with Shagreel but disagree with his selection. Run slivers that do things, like Gemhide Sliver , Manaweft Sliver , Necrotic Sliver , Harmonic Sliver , Constricting Sliver , Basal Sliver , Darkheart Sliver , or Psionic Sliver . if you are gonna go that route though slipping an Arcane Adaptation and Conspiracy may be worth your while.
Also I think there's a bug with your deck page, I can't seem to find Tamiyo, Field Researcher might want to get a mod to take a look at that lol.

Manaweft Sliver is a lot better than Birds of Paradise becuase it gives all your slivers the ability to tap for mana, and Virulent Sliver is insanly good no matter what, making games shorter, Shifting Sliver and Crystalline Sliver are just overpowered, Ancient Ziggurat and Unclaimed Territory are really good lands, maybe include a Door of Destinies and a Beastmaster Ascension too. Also if i were you id include some larger slivers for some good late game boosts, like Megantic Sliver or Constricting Sliver , also either a Sliver Overlord or a Homing Sliver to get what slivers you need

Icesnake15 there is only a minimum number of cards you can have in modern--not a maximum. That said, unless you are running Battle of Wits, you really should not run more than 60 cards. It's basic statistics--the more cards you have, the less likely you are to draw the card you need.
Moving on to deck advice:
You don't need 25 lands. Since you have Manaweft Sliver to help, you can probably get by with 20. That gets you down to 60 cards.
I'd probably make the following changes:
Cut Constricting Sliver - too much mana for too little.
Move Harmonic Sliver to your sideboard.
Run 4 copies of Sinew Sliver.
4 copies of Gemhide Sliver would not hurt.
You need to add some card draw. Generally slivers "draw" cards with Collected Company, but that's not really going to work on a budget.

I run a Sliver Deck as well, it's pretty heavily combo based, the last game I played with it ended with me casting infinite Sliver tokens with Basal Sliver + Sliver Queen + Training Grounds you can check it out here if you want. 5-C Sliver Deck (Slivers: Resistance is Futile)
But, I highly recommend having all of the Sliver Lords in your deck: Sliver Overlord, Sliver Hivelord, Sliver Queen, and Sliver Legion. Furthermore, you should also run Constricting Sliver it's a great choice for control of the board. And, if you do decide to run Sliver Queen then you should also run Necrotic Sliver for complete control of the board. Notice that it says permanent, that includes everything on the board, from planeswalkers to lands.
But, have fun playing!

Maybe add more Venom Slivers, Sentinel Slivers, and Predatory Slivers, as in the early game, they can dominate. Deathtouch can be extremely powerful with so many creatures, and having vigilance means you don't have to commit to attacking or defending. Predatory Sliver makes your slivers less susceptible to burn spells, and makes the weakest slivers, such as Manaweft Sliver and Striking Sliver more formidable. I don't like Battle Sliver, you would much rather just remove it and run 4 Megantic Slivers, since for 1 more mana you get an additional +1/+3. An obvious replacement is to take out Fury Sliver and add another Bonescythe Sliver. Last suggestions, increase the number of Constricting Slivers and decrease the number of Bonesplitter Slivers. Nice deck, keep up the good work, and I hope these suggestions help.
