BossUltinuc on Slivers Deck Help (Modern)

Okay so, a while back I wanted to put together a Slivers deck just for some fun casual play with friends, because I like the concept and playstyle they have.

I bought a relatively cheap pre-built deck online, and a friend recommended some other cards I should find to use in the deck. Unfortunately, that was a while ago, and I'm not in contact with that friend anymore so I'm pretty much back at square one.

The creatures listed below are what I already have, so based on this, what might be a fun + effective deck that I could build? I'm willing to buy singles as long as the individual cards aren't too costly (ideally no more than about $5-7 total for every copy I'd need of a card, but I'm open to spending a little bit more)

Creatures: Cleaving Sliver x1 Spiteful Sliver x1 Bladeback Sliver x1 Blur Sliver x2 Hollowhead Sliver x2 Striking Sliver x2

Lavabelly Sliver x1 Cloudshredder Sliver x2 Bonescythe Sliver x1 Enduring Sliver x1 Constricting Sliver x1 Sentinel Sliver x2 Sidewinder Sliver x2

Scuttling Sliver x3 Diffusion Sliver x4 Galerider Sliver x3

Megantic Sliver x2 Groundshaker Sliver x2 Venom Sliver x2 Manaweft Sliver x3 Predatory Sliver x2 Tempered Sliver x2

Darkheart Sliver x3 Dregscape Sliver x3 Leeching Sliver x3

Thank you in advance for the help!

Hey abierto,

It’s been awhile since you commented, glad to hear from you. Thanks for bringing these cards onto my radar. I've got some mixed opinions about each card, so let's discuss - Survival of the Fittest seems only viable when looking for the aforementioned Sliver Queen + Lavabelly Sliver + Basal Sliver combo. Otherwise, i'd just be populating my graveyard for a mass reanimation play that could either make or break my next turn and probably the rest of the game for me. Seems a little too high risk, high reward.

Survival of the Fittest only makes me miss Paradox Engine that much more. I guess I just need to see how it's viable outside of just tutoring for the previously mentioned. Separately, I saw a Sliver themed alter of this card that is really awesome:

Intuition in a good card, but i'm not sure it'll be good in this deck. It would be a great tutor for decks that have reanimation as a primary theme.

Dregscape Sliver on the other hand I’m seriously considering - i'd cut Patriarch's Bidding, as the benefit of only targeting my stuff outweighs the exile at the end of turn. I tend to face a lot of tribal decks in my meta(s), so not bringing back everyone else's graveyard to seal the deal on a combo seems like an easy decision.

Hi Sneuxfox,

Welcome to my deck page, thank you for posting. I've always held Magma Sliver in high regard, but the issue i've had with it is that for it to be a viable card on the board I would need to reach a "critical mass" of Slivers on board. By itself, it's ability is so-so. But I now realize when accompanied by Sentinel Sliver and/or Bonescythe Sliver this creature can make a somewhat threatening board get really out of hand.

To be honest, it's been a long time since i've taken another look at this card. The last time I considered it's inclusion was before M14 at least. Now, after Modern Horizons there are a bunch of more interesting combinations we could use. You've convinced me - i'll be cutting Heart Sliver (as Cloudshredder Sliver makes it obsolete) for Magma.

The only problem I have to worry about now is if Crystalline Sliver is on board. Also, what the heck is happening with Magma Sliver? It just had a serious price spike! You know something I don't?

Thanks again for all of your awesome suggestions and discussion. You help keep this deck list evolving.

Hey abierto,

Indeed it’s been awhile since you commented, glad to hear from you. Thank you for bringing these cards onto my radar, let’s discuss them - I can easily tell that Survival of the Fittest would dramatically change the way the deck plays – with Survival of the Fittest + Dregscape Sliver on the board, access to at least 3 mana, 1 creature in hand, and at least an additional I can combo out and win the game on that turn. The only drawbacks I can see here are the mana requirements coupled with the more than likely opponent interaction that would be coming my way. Given that Dregscape Sliver’s ability is only sorcery speed – that only solidifies my concern as A simple Bojuka Bog could wreck me If I do not populate my graveyard with care and proper timing. This makes me wish that Paradox Engine wasn’t banned – I really miss that card. The verdict is out on Survival of the Fittest, I want to like to this card but I can’t help but feel hesitant in including it (let alone the investment). I think I’ll maybe proxy it in and see where that takes me. Speaking which, check out this really awesome alter:

Survival of the Fittest Sliver Alter Show

Dregscape Sliver on the other hand I’m considering including. Maybe cutting Patriarch's Bidding, as I do not like the mana investment and the potential added bonus of assisting opponents. In the metas I play in there are a lot of tribal decks – I’m sitting across from at least one or two other tribal decks every game. I’m ordering a copy today, so thank you for mentioning that card again.

Hi Sneuxfox (death by Snu snu?),

Welcome to my deck page! Thank you for posting. I’ve always wanted to work Magma Sliver into this decklist, but I don’t think it would be a good fit – Magma lends itself toward a Sliver deck that compliments a more Aggro strategy where the goal is to hit a “critical mass” of creatures and abuse enough evasion keywords to get a single creature to knock an opponent out. First Sliver's Chosen would be an absolute must include alongside Magma Sliver, as it would solidify a Voltron strategy by stacking Exalted triggers alongside Magma’s ability. I definitely agree that the aforementioned can get out hand when you have just one Sliver be the target of multiple triggers.

I agree that it's criminal that Magma doesn't make it's way into alot of lists, maybe it's due to most decks wanting to lean into the Mid-range Sliver tool box? Or maybe it's because the deck would need to be more Voltron centric? I decided to throw together a quick decklist as an example of what I think the average deck running Magma Sliver would look like:

What're your thoughts on the list, Sneuxfox ?

Hello Mortlocke, long time since my last comment!

I'm binging to you some new lines you would like about the Sliver Queen + Basal Sliver + Lavabelly Sliver. Generally speaking this combo is not that easy to assemble, since it normally requires 2 tutor effects if we already got one of those 3 in our hand or battlefield.

The addition of Dregscape Sliver will allow us to use tutor cards like Intuition or Survival of the Fittest.

With Intuition we basically tutor for Dregscape and 2 other slivers, and our opponent doesn't have a valid option to interrupt our plan, since whatever card he will choose, we will always be able to return everything from our graveyard thanks to unearth.

With Survival of the Fittest we will need before our turn and one creature in hand. We basically tutor and bin what we tutored for, until all 3 pieces are in our graveyard and Dregscape in our hand. We then cast Dregscape Sliver and unearth everything for the win.

Generally speaking with those 2 lines, Dregscape Sliver will also pay the cost for the first Sliver Queen ability activation, due to Basal Sliver ability.

Let me know what you think about this, you can always find my primer on moxfield or deckstats under the username MrPonzi.

Cheers!

KayneMarco thank you for the advice but I don’t think Zirda, the Dawnwaker would not really work in the deck I mean I like the ability’s but I don’t think it would flow. But I am going to add Dregscape Sliver and Galerider Sliver to my deck

Sliver Overlord emphasizes quality, since you get to tutor. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim emphasizes quantity. I personally like Sliver Overlord as a commander because it lets you kill people with commander damage really easily. While your slivers go wide on one opponent, the Overlord can go for the commander damage kill on someone else. Just tutor up evasion one combat and then double strike the next. There are a lot of very great slivers from Harmonic Sliver to Dregscape Sliver so it's nice to be able to tutor for them. As for Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , he can't be any better than The First Sliver is at going wide, so he's not the best sliver commander for quantity nor quality. He does have one distinct advantage though. As terrifying as Golos is, slivers are more feared. So if you don't want to be killed on sight as quickly, I would go with Golos.

Hey all,

Always a pleasure to see to many comments! gvazdaus, Triumph of the Hordes is way outside of the scope of this deck - it's meant to be low to the ground and as efficient and competitive as possible (within the context of Sliver Tribal). Infect is great, I love it as a mechanic but Triumph of the Hordes is just too dependent on my board having enough creatures with enough evasion to be an effective and consistent wincon in the cEDH space. Fun combo regardless. Thanks for bringing it up!

luca11rise, jasinatael pretty much sums up my opinion on Diffusion Sliver - it is terrible in EDH. It's effect is essentially a polite ask as opposed to a hard "no" when compared to Crystalline Sliver . If you truly mean to stop your opponents from targeting your creatures, there is only one option and it definitely isn't Diffusion . That card is designed for a standard-like environment (60 cards with 4 copies of). I do agree with the assessment of Dregscape Sliver - that one is pretty cool and can enable some pretty wild combos that interact with the graveyard.

I always saw Diffusion Sliver as simply a taxing effect, it doesn't really protect anything. Dregscape Sliver is pretty amazing though.
