Intruder Alarm

Enchantment

Creatures don't untap during their controllers' untap steps.

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, untap all creatures.

KBK7101 on Koma, Cosmos Serpent - Risen From the Sea (v1.0)

I haven't updated this deck in a long time but I'll take a look at Opposition when I do get around to adding stuff. I get that card confused with Mind Over Matter for some reason, so I thought it was a lot more expensive.

Intruder Alarm is great... But it's one of those cards that kind of gives me a headache. I'll add it to the maybeboard anyway.

Thanks!

Komaaaaaa here is my build. It’s on the higher end but the deck is so streamlined you’ll always end up with half the deck in your hand and tons of tokens of everything.

A must include in this deck are Opposition and Intruder Alarm. What better thing to have in a Koma deck than a way to do Kona’s ability without sacking. Only thing is you don’t get the indestructible.

Also if you want to untap a bunch then you really can’t go wrong with Intruder Alarm (combos really well with Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver + Sliver Queen), just be careful to not play it until you have a mana sliver out and at least a couple others on board.

Depending on the meta I might cut Carpet of Flowers , Mystic Remora / Rhystic Study , Delay , or Swan Song for Root Sliver . I agree that with the addition of Root Sliver and the use of Cavern of Souls, Rhythm of the Wild does become redundant and even with riot isn’t a particularly attractive choice.

I would definitely agree that Intruder Alarm is a very risky play and only provides consistent value in specific metas.

I personally use Dregscape Sliver solely as a low mana recursion win con and usually wouldn’t see any long term value returns from Yawgmoth's Will.

I agree with your assessment of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. I will usually only use them if the color isn’t being played in the pod.

Although I do like having an additional mana loop win con, I probably wouldn’t run Ashnod's Altar if I didn’t also run Morophon, the Boundless. Thank you for the thorough reply.

Hello Votecat, thanks for commenting on my page. Just as a side note, you can tag the cards you reference by using:

[[card:Sliver Overlord]]

I have thoughts on every card suggestion you made, and i'll address them individually. Root Sliver is on permanent standby for me. Depending on the nature of my meta (Rather, when I actually get one - RL has its challenges) i'd find a way to work it in, but I'm uncertain on what i'd cut - what would you cut from my list to make room? Rhythm of the Wild is a great card, however it's unnecessary as Slivers do all of the things this Enchantment can do - but better. Why be confined by Riot? Having to choose Haste or a +1/+1 counter? Besides, dedicating so many resources to countering one form of interaction is just unnecessary with the inclusion of Cavern of Souls and the potential inclusion of Root Sliver.

Intruder Alarm I have my own issues with - namely that it's a dead card in hand until you have all the combo pieces on board to fully take advantage of it before an opponent does. The effect can very easily backfire - and has backfired on me personally - and has forever soured my take on the card. Also, keep in mind if you are ever in a mirror match, there is always a chance the opponent can out maneuver you with the exact same pieces. This simply makes me miss Paradox Engine that much more. The printing of Urza, Lord High Artificer made the banning of Paradox Engine essential if players were going to use him - so I forever hate on Urza, who personally ruined my fun with one of my favorite cards.

The comparison of Dregscape Sliver and Yawgmoth's Will is like a 9MM vs. a Nuclear Bomb. YawgWill is leagues beyond the potential of what Dregscape has to offer - you can play a land, any spell that isn't a Sliver, oh and a Sliver, until the end of turn out of your graveyard. The best part is that said Sliver doesn't get exiled at the end of turn. There is a very good reason why this card is on the reserved list. I'm not going to be swapping out YawgWill anytime soon.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth are both good cards - within context. Urborg is kind of meh outside of a monoblack or 2 color deck that also utilizes Cabal Coffers - and doesn't have access to Green. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth on the otherhand is uh...meh? Slivers aren't a Lands matter deck and there aren't any Slivers that gain +X/+X for each Forest I control - though that would be sweet. Honestly, these lands would do more harm than good as fixing the manabases of my opponents is something I generally want to avoid.

Ashnod's Altar is not the most optimal choice unless the commander is Sliver Queen herself. Without the other combo pieces on board, Altar just kind of sits there as an optional sac outlet that could potentially ramp you - but to take full advantage you would absolutely need Quick Sliver on board. Again, it's a good card for Sliver Queen the commander, but in a Sliver Tribal deck i'm just not convinced.

Crowd Lands - first time i've heard Bondlands being referred to as that. Cool. I don't always play this deck in a pod so having lands that always come in tapped is simply not ideal. I lean more toward the Shadowmoor/Eventide Filterlands e.g. Flooded Grove, Cascade Bluffs, etc. if I were to swap out my Revised Dual Lands.

Thanks for commenting by the way, please leave a +1 if you like as I will be doing the same on your deckpage.

What does Warren Instigator do for this deck? Am I missing the goblin theme? Gibbering Fiend is a machine gun.

Fiery Islet more card draw.

Shivan Gorge This card finally found a home! Does serious work in this list. Balduvian Trading Post is old, neat and similar. Just something to consider if you want more Ghryson triggers.

Blasting Station similar type of engine as Intruder Alarm.

Caltrops this might be another suicide suggestion but I'm thinking this will act like an on theme Propaganda while you ignore the tax because your creatures are pingers.

Walking Ballista your deck doesn't have a counter theme or generate big mana but this robot is a colorless engine that will do work early/mid/late game.

Came across a few games where Intruder Alarm was actually hampering if not almost entirely shutting down my engine. I'm switching in Propaganda because my deck is a little slow, and I think a little protection would be better than more card draw. Rhystic Study was a very close second.
