Forbid Discussion

Grind on Tasigur Control

cool deck!
Forbid is surprisingly playable in Tasigur of the golden banana. just a thought in case you hadn't already considered it.

Looks good! I definitely recommend Capsize here. Mizzix's ability reduces additional costs like Buyback and Kicker, so you'd be able to play Capsize all day.

These might interest you too: Dominate, Curse of the Swine, Epic Experiment, Thousand-Year Storm, Forbid, Rite of Replication, Spellseeker, Fists of Flame (surprise commander damage!), Braingeyser, Mind Spring, Pirate's Pillage, Pirate's Prize, Spell Swindle, Reality Spasm (untap those lands!), Turnabout

I think Forbid is great with Rielle and Narset, Parter of Veils combos really well with all of the wheel effects you run.

Chandra, Flamecaller is excellent in this deck. It is a board wipe, a wheel and occasionally free damage.

Shared Animosity is so good with Locusts. It's usually game over for the whole table when you wheel into it.

Spellbook is not worth running, in my opinion. If you want no max hand size cards, look at Library of Leng, Thought Vessel, or maybe Venser's Journal.

If your friends don't mind you being a little mean, you could play Opposition. You can use your tokens to tap people down during their upkeep and they won't be playing any magic.

Merfolk Looter seems a bit weak for the deck. Invisibility also seems a bit strange. You don't seem like a Voltron deck necessarily. In any case, something like Trailblazer's Boots can give you the effect you need without being a fragile Aura. there are much better counters than Cancel. I like Forbid.

Mortlocke on Deck does not contain a lapdance *ding* Sliver EDH

CrimsonWings3689 - I maintain that Diffusion Sliver is not a good sliver in a Singleton format. If an opponent really needed to get rid of a Gemhide Sliver or something essential for you to combo off, then the extra is a paltry price to pay in addition to the for Swords to Plowshares, or the for Beast Within, or even the for Terminate. Alot of instant removal in EDH is fairly low cost to begin with. Sure, there's a chance that an opponent wouldn't be able to pay - but three? The odds aren't in your favor if you're relying solely on Diffusion.

The previously mentioned Sliver was designed for a format where you can have more than one in your deck. Paying an extra isn't so bad, but ? ? Not feasible. I think you're wasting a slot by including this Sliver - put in some interaction in it's place - Forbid, Arcane Denial, Unwind, Heroic Intervention, Teferi's Protection - something. You need a hard answer for a hard question - not a Hopefully or maybe they can't pay the . Including Unsettled Mariner is an okay step up - but the lack of consistency (how often are you going to get both on the field) and cost (are you seriously going to tutor for both?) to get each Sliver on the field just isn't worth it. The cost seriously outweighs the benefits. You're better off having some interaction in this slot.

Love me some Angus.

I am not a big fan of Fog Patch. It doesn't stop creatures with Trample, which is a pretty big deal. I also think you can do way better than Fog and Holy Day in Commander.

I would really suggest Constant Mists. It's great in the late game when you have tons of lands and really takes the heat off you. Arachnogenesis is also a Commander classic you could use.

You are not running any boardwipes? This could be a good place for Supreme Verdict and Rout.

Cancel is a bit bland as well. There are tons of better counterpells. I would play Forbid, but pretty much anything else will work as well.

Elephant Grass is a super powerful card for you. Extra points for comboing with Hannah, Ship's Navigator.

You aren't running too many essential creatures to your game plan, aside from card draw and ramp. Asceticism seems a bit out of place. Why not play Privileged Position? This will protect all your permanents at the expense of not being able to regenerate creatures for 2 mana.

You can do a lot better than Guard Gomazoa. In fact, I think it would be a good idea to add a few more lands to your deck and this seems like an appropriate cut.

O-Ring or Banishing Light could be replaced by Detention Sphere. It's only slightly better because it can deal with boards full of tokens.

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.

OtherWorldlyShadow thanks for your input. Oboro, Palace in the Clouds and Burgeoning are currently out of budget for me but cards I have considered. Ghost Town have totaly slipped under my radar so thank you, I will try it! Forbid might be good but Im conserned for the 3 for 1. Forbid plus two other cards for one of my opponents cards. Will probably try it out tho. Do you have any suggestion on what I should replace it with?
