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 ?

Do you think playing more pinger aura would do or you just chose the blue one since the deck is more blue heavy ? Fire Whip Power of Fire

What about Homing Sliver as another tutor for the changing creature type effect ?

Decks look sweet , but I feel there it miss maybe some draw ? Maybe I'm used to more

sergiodelrio on Does Zenith Flare count for …

They need to have actual 'Cycling XYZ' on them. The reason Flare is worded this way is because there is also [type]cycling like 'basic landcycling' on Ash Barrens or slivercycling on Homing Sliver, which counts as a legal variant for Flare. Other cards that care about cycling but don't have the actual ability in some form do not count.

  • 702.28e Typecycling is a variant of the cycling ability. “[Type]cycling [cost]” means “[Cost], Discard this card: Search your library for a [type] card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library.” This type is usually a subtype (as in “mountaincycling”) but can be any card type, subtype, supertype, or combination thereof (as in “basic landcycling”).

  • 702.28f Typecycling abilities are cycling abilities, and typecycling costs are cycling costs. Any cards that trigger when a player cycles a card will trigger when a card is discarded to pay an activation cost of a typecycling ability. Any effect that stops players from cycling cards will stop players from activating cards’ typecycling abilities. Any effect that increases or reduces a cycling cost will increase or reduce a typecycling cost. Any effect that looks for a card with cycling will find a card with typecycling.

So, I don't know if you've had time to update this list of late, but I would like to make some suggestions, and maybe what to cut for them. An old add that I was disappointed not to see was Manaweft Sliver as its redundancy, and maybe Homing Sliver since you're running a decent amount of the Sliver lords. Speaking of, I would play Cloudshredder Sliver over Bonescythe. Two keywords, one being evasion, is better to me over double strike. Lathliss, Dragon Queen over Utvara Hellkite, as it costs two cmc less and does something similar. I'm also going to run Najeela, the Blade-Blossom and Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow.

abierto, Grim Tutor seems like an upgrade over Homing Sliver. It's nice to have a tutor on a body, but for as long as i've owned this deck, i've never actually used Homing Sliver's body. That sounds alot weirder than it did in my head. But yeah, I've never been interested in Homing Sliver's body - only it's ability. Grim Tutor on the other hand can get me any card in my deck for an adjustment in the CMC (from to ). I think the benefit outweighs the cost - and I will happily report in on my findings after thorough experimentation!

Oh, and in regards to Krosan Grip - you're correct. On occassion I do face a General Tazri Food Chain deck - (the commander could have changed now, as COVID has given people tons of time to brew). But i'll keep Nature's Claim in the back of mind as my meta will likely be shifting considerably in the near future.

bigrigroy, I think you should watch what you say about Amoeboid Changeling, he gets SUPER triggered real easy when you bring up Unnatural Selection...oh wait. Uh oh...I think he heard you!

enter image description here

I couldn't help myself. So, let me bring up the simple pros and cons for each card.

Unnatural Selection

  • Pro: Is an Enchantment, and is harder to remove
  • Pro: Can fire off multiple times each turn for the low cost of per target
  • Con: Does literally nothing when Sliver Overlord is not on the battlefield. Additionally - can be considered a dead card when in an opening hand
  • Con: Cannot be tutored by Sliver Overlord. Would have to use a Demonic Tutor or Enlightened Tutor to fetch, instead of a game ending piece such as Mana Echoes, Sliver Queen, or any other mana rock that can advance your boardstate

Amoeboid Changeling

  • Pro: Can be tutored by Sliver Overlord, reserving other tutors in hand for more important pieces to fetch
  • Pro: Gains all benefits from other Slivers in play - possessing all the keywords and abilities, like a real sliver
  • Pro: In the rare edge cases where creature type matters for an ability to fire, Changeling can remove all creature types from a single target (e.g. - Shutting off Najeela, the Blade-Blossom's ability so that she can't fire off and create an infinite amount of Warrior tokens - yes, i've done this.)
  • Con: Has a puny weak 1/1 body, and can easily be removed.
  • Con: Has no real useful ability that makes it useful by itself.

To sum up my argument Selection is a gimmick that can't contribute outside of enabling Overlord to steal creatures. By itself, it just sits on the board taking up space not contributing. Worse yet, in hand it is a dead card that you don't want to cast unless you have Overlord on the field. Changeling is better because it's more than just a gimmick. Barely more, but it can contribute to your board in different ways by using the abilities of the other Slivers in play. Additionally, Overlord (OR Homing Sliver) can easily tutor it up - saving those valuable in hand tutors for other way more important spells.

Parry, reposte. - what say you now after reading that?
