I highly dislike overrun, because I think you can run Ezuri instead, but I will admit that +3/+3 can sometimes be the difference between winning or losing.

Also, find room for an Eternal Witness in there, it's pretty good.

On Thin Ice doesn't work for this deck, as it requires a snow-land to enchant, and your deck doesn't run any (and they will increase the cost quite a bit). If you don't have a Coat of Arms already, I would drop it for other things. It's a nice card, but will benefit other tribal strategies and is pretty expensive overall - Door of Destinies might be a better option. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is not actually in your list, so you'll need to drop a card and put her in. Make sure to type * CMDR * (no spaces) after the card name to show her as the commander. I would look for some ways to push damage through, like adding some equipment that gives trample Ring of Kalonia or Loxodon Warhammer come to mind. Skyblinder Staff makes any of your flying creatures blockable only by creatures with Reach, which is a pretty powerful effect, with a flying commander. Champion of Lambholt can quickly give you an army of unblockable creatures. Dictate of Heliod is another option for an anthem. I think Elder Cathar may be an underperformer here and better replaced with another creature. Maybe Juniper Order Ranger, Abzan Falconer, Aegis of the Gods, Baird, Steward of Argive, Goldnight Commander, Karametra's Acolyte, Krosan Restorer, Tuskguard Captain, Wild Beastmaster or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Good luck, and let me know if there are any specific questions you have.

multimedia on Undead Conspiracy

Hey, interesting concept, but your deck is kind of all over the place. All the combos are with Conspiracy, but Arcane Adaptation which is in the sideboard is the same effect, but a better card because less CMC and easier casting cost. I think you want Adaptation as a backup Conspiracy effect.

The game plan is to get an Adaptation effect to make all your creatures Zombies. Consider expanding on the current Zombie theme of The Scarab God, Door of Destinies, Lich Lord of Unx, Undead Alchemist, Gleaming Overseer, Liliana, Death's Majesty and Rooftop Storm? More Zombies that way you can have a more functioning deck without an Adaption effect. Play more Zombies and keep some good nonZombie creatures who then become better with an Adaption effect. Take more advantage of Doubling Season by expanding on the Zombie token theme?

Zombies to consider adding:

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Power_Stone on Mono-White Angel Tribal

I think you have a good base for a deck, some things I would consider would be something like Door of Destinies or Coat of Arms, especially something like Fellwar Stone doesnt really do much for the deck in terms of mana fixing or ramp as you are mono-white. I would also consider the use case for Eldrazi Displacer and Wall of Omens. They don't seem to fit the theme and to me don't offer much in terms of value when you play them and cutting two creatures say for another sorcery, or an instant to give the deck more interaction with others would be huge plus.

Inigmatix on Sliver in my Thumb

1 month ago

Starting from the Premium Deck is a pretty good place to begin crafting slivers and it's what I did myself and have been playing slivers for a number of years now.

Now for quite a lot of suggestions and thoughts that I hope will be helpful for you

Recommended Cuts

You really don't need Mana Reflection in slivers or most other decks for that matter. It's really a "win more" kind of card and if you're doing well enough that you have the 6 mana to burn on it you're probably better off just dumping more slivers into play or tutoring for slivers that will allow you to win the game with your Sliver Overlord. If you're using it to go infinite and win with Sliver Queen then your Mana Echoes will provide the same effect for that combo but either of the 4-cost token doublers can also work. Anointed Procession Parallel Lives

You also don't really need bombs like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, when you can spend less mana on more creatures that generate more value, putting 11 mana into a single creature will feel kind of bad. Also, a 10/10 among a board of 20/20 unblockable, vigilant, double striking, lifelink, flying, deathtouch, trample, etc. creatures isn't going to provide much of a bonus, it actually ends up being less of a threat than the rest of your board. Plus, if it gets countered, you’re down 11 mana whereas if somebody counters a sliver then you’re down like 2-4 mana and can still play more slivers.

Mycosynth Lattice opens up your entire board to artifact removal (including your lands) you may want to reconsider this include as it doesn't really provide any benefit to you for all the risk that comes with it.

Sensei's Divining Top may not be as useful in a deck where you have as many tutors as you do and your commander can tutor all your value pieces since you’ll probably be shuffling your deck a lot.

Amulet of Vigor doesn’t actually do that much for you, out of all your permanents there is only one that always enters tapped, Vesuva. With the number of shock and check lands you run, you probably do not need this and can use this slot for something else. (I get that it also works with Cryptic Gateway but without a source for card draw, you’ll run out of slivers to play quite quickly anyway)

Quick Thoughts

Crystalline Sliver turns off any and all "target sliver" abilities like Crypt Sliver and Magma Sliver (You also won’t be able to steal things with Overlord). If you find yourself subject to frequent spot removal and need to bring Crystalline out often to protect your Slivers you can at least keep the regenerate ability with Clot Sliver or Sedge Sliver

Harmonic Sliver can potentially ruin your infinite Token Queen combo as the pieces that enable that combo are all artifacts/enchantments and this sliver’s ETB is not a ‘may’ ability. You must destroy something if there is a legal target on the board so you would end up destroying your Training Grounds, Mana Echoes, etc. If you still want this ability I would recommend swapping this with Aura Shards as it is the same ability with the same trigger but it is a ‘may’ ability and you can choose not to destroy something.

Useful Slivers

Hibernation Sliver is one of the best slivers for avoiding removal. Paying 2 life to protect any sliver from being destroyed, exiled, stolen, etc. is very useful

Belligerent Sliver/Two-Headed Sliver making it harder to block your slivers means more bodies getting through to hit face.

Essence Sliver this is not Lifelink, and because it isn’t it actually stacks with Syphon Sliver for more life points

Dormant Sliver It’s fairly easy to dump your hand when playing slivers but this leaves you with an empty hand and not a whole lot of options. Very good for keeping your hand full of slivers to play. Defender can be a problem but who says you have to attack to win with slivers ;)

Screeching Sliver alternate win, tack this onto infinite sliver tokens combo from the Queen to mill out your opponents. Good if locked out of attacking for some reason

Lavabelly Sliver another non-combat win with Queen combo

Homing Sliver another way to tutor for any sliver you need besides Overlord’s ability

Mesmeric Sliver only card with Fateseal in the game, great for controlling your opponent’s next draw. Force them to only draw lands or maybe give them no lands at all.

Necrotic Sliver having spot removal for any permanent on every single one of your creatures is terrifying a very valuable. Strongly recommend this as an include.

Shadow Sliver I have never encountered anyone playing creatures with Shadow in EDH in all my years of play. This most certainly will let you get through and hit face to win a game, just make sure you kill all your opponents or get rid of it after combat as it leaves you with no blockers

Virulent Sliver I know there are mixed feelings about poison counters in the magic community but hey you get 2 counters on someone with double strike creatures.

Fun and Useful Tribal Cards for Slivers

None of these are particularly pertinent includes and some came with the Premium Deck, but these are just some Tribal cards that I have used over time while playing with slivers. Some I still use and some I do not.

Kindred Summons, Wild Pair, Herald's Horn, Coat of Arms, Kindred Discovery, Descendants' Path, Patriarch's Bidding, Kindred Charge, Vanquisher's Banner, Distant Melody, Kindred Dominance, Living Death, Primal Surge, Harsh Mercy, Door of Destinies

Closing Thoughts

Slivers can be a lot of fun to play but keep in mind that they are very aggressive and can draw a lot of hate from your opponents. Players that have experienced playing against slivers are likely to counter your high-value creatures like Gemhide or Queen and will try keeping your board as small as possible since slivers win by swarming and overwhelming your opponents. I have found that this can be mitigated somewhat by changing your commander since slivers have 3 good options. Sliver Overlord, Sliver Queen, and The First Sliver.

Overlord and Queen are quite similar as they both conducive to trying to hit Queen’s infinite combo as quickly as possible but I have found that Queen tends to make people more nervous than Overlord does since you can create a wide board very quickly with her. Not only that but if you are relatively uninterrupted then silvers can combo out relatively consistently by turn 4 or 5 (depending on how lucky you get). If you like a combo victory, then that’s great, but the combo has very little variance and I personally got bored of it after playing it like that for so long.

Using The First Sliver as your commander is a whole lot less consistent if you’re going for combo but overall I’ve found it to be significantly more fun to play as I can sometimes rip 3-4 slivers for free off the top of my deck. The win is the same with overrunning your opponents but not using an infinite combo every time was very refreshing.

Hopefully you find some of this helpful, slivers are my all-time favorite tribe in mtg and it was great to see them get some love in Modern Horizons.

This deck has a surprising lack of Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and I want to know what you're going to do about it.
Puresteel Paladin might also make for some good inclusions. Ghirapur AEther Grid and Inspiring Statuary give you something else to do with the equipment.

Land Tax, Weatherlight, and Door of Destinies seem like some cards to consider removing.

Let me know what you think.

Ravenrose on Avatars Assemble!

Kindred Dominance would be perfect for this deck. Kodama's Reach is another ramp spell you need. Door of Destinies would boost your Avatars. Kindred Discovery should also be an addition.

Hope some of these help!
