Harmonic Sliver Discussion

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:

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 ?

Hey, the CQ decklist is missing Cloudshredder Sliver, who's one of the best budget Slivers especially when Hivelord is Commander. It's missing Harmonic Sliver, who's excellent repeatable removal in multiplayer Commander. Tempered Sliver is good with Hivelord as Commander since it can make him bigger with counters. Blasphemous Act wrecks opponents creatures when Hivelord is Commander, consistently for one mana. Swiftfoot Boots gives Hivelord extra protection, combining indestructible and hexproof makes it very difficult for opponents to remove Hivelord.

Sol Ring is less price than Wayfarer's Bauble and much better ramp. Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone and Commander's Sphere are budget five color mana rocks.

The manabases in all CQ decklists are an afterthought, no Command Tower, they're terrible especially with five colors. Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Unclaimed Territory, Path of Ancestry are all budget lands for five colors with Slivers. The five Tango lands: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh are budget and nice when playing 15+ basic lands. The Tango lands help with color fixing and make Farseek, Mountain Valley and Rocky Tar Pit better since they can search for one of them.

Good luck with the upgrading.

Hey, well done so far, nice Queen. The manabase is underwhelming for five colors and you forgot Command Tower.

31 lands is a low amount to have enough color fixing when five colors are essential to cast Overlord as well as needing many different color combinations in the early turns of the game to cast Slivers. Compared to the rest of your deck, other than five lands (Forbidden, Exotic, Crypt, Tree, Zagoth), the rest of the manabase has been neglected. What is the Snow theme for? Playing Snow for Into the North doesn't seem worth it since all the Snow duals always ETB tapped.

Consider adding 3-5 more lands and some more 2 CMC ramp that can make any color?

Some Sliver upgrades to consider:

Basal Sliver combos with Sliver Queen to make infinite 1/1 Slivers which Lavabelly Sliver is a win condition. Amoeboid Changeling is a Changeling which are all creature types. It's a Sliver while in your hand, library, graveyard and because it's a Sliver in your library you can tutor for it with Overlord. Overlord and Amoeboid have repeatable interaction to turn an opponent's creature into a Silver and then gain control of it.

Good luck with your deck.

I've built a deck based on yours, thanks for putting it out!

Not sure if this would increase the power level of the deck, but surely makes the deck more fun/responsive to play with, is to add Quick Sliver. Being able to Fetch a Harmonic Sliver or Sliver Hivelord in response to something is quite sweet.

Also, have you considered adding Ignoble Hierarch and Zirda, the Dawnwaker?

Other than that, like to play with Hibernation Sliver as well, which gives you some protection against board wipes, much better than your Diffusion Sliver I think.

Since you have 23/30 creatures at cost = 2, Aether Vial will work very well. Plus I also use Lead the Stampede in my sliver deck for situations when I run out of creatures in my hand (which with vial may happen pretty fast sometimes).

Additionally I find Bonescythe Sliver as one of the best slivers ever.

I would also exchange Krosan Grip for Harmonic Sliver in sideboard. Always better to have sliver with the ability than a spell ;)

Well, good morning, nbarry223 and zapyourtumor! You are both pulling on my heart strings with this Blood Moon talk. That card still gives me horrible flashbacks haha. It is still one of the decks biggest problems, and especially with Urza's Saga for some reason not being banned yet, it's presence is bigger than ever. For the most part, I do okay just making sure I have a basic and a fetch in the first few hands, so I'm good to cast whatever I need, generally speaking. Skyclave Apparition is my best main board answer for sure, and if I'm in a position where I can Glittering Wish for Abrupt Decay, I'm probably able to just play around it. And that's what I try to do, really, especially with insistence on four basics, is just play around it. There have been awkward things I've done in the past, like Harmonic Sliver, if I just have G and W and can Wish, but it never really feels right. Always a constant battle with that card.

Manamorphose doesn't really feel right, either, it would still have the same problem as everything else. I would need at least two mana, from non basic lands, and multiple spells that work with each other.

All of those other suggested creatures are badass for sure, but they only target artifacts or enchantments. Skyclave Apparition is a main board mainstay because it can target anything, and they don't get it back.

The situation is rather complicated to say the least, and am definitely open to figuring out if there's an answer out there :D

RNR_Gaming: i'm assuming you mean horizons 1? even without an Aether Vial or Collected Company i can still win turn 4 thanks to Cloudshredder Sliver . several of the top decks on mtggoldfish right now dont have enough removal (imo) to deal with my own sliver build, and jund being relatively unplayed now is great. Harmonic Sliver can have a field day all over hammer time decks.
