Intruder Alarm

Enchantment

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

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, untap all creatures.

Mortlocke Yeah man, it's not necessarily a win-con but turn 3-4 with ramp if you have any of your haste Slivers in play like you're typically going for, bare minimum when your opponent enters their next turn after Telekinetic Sliver hits the field on said turns you just disable two of their lands.

With some miraculous hands you can play Intruder Alarm and one Sliver on T3 then have 6 lands T4 to play Telekinetic Sliver and tap 4 permanents with the Slivers currently in play and do it again if they play a creature. Imo great value for something that turns essentially your entire army into a better version of Blinding Mage

Yes, I'm aware that Zur the Enchanter gets around counter magic through his ability, but in my opinion that seems like an unnecessarily convoluted way to try and solve a problem. Slivers have access to all colors - why not just run your own counter magic? Or control/stax pieces like Conqueror's Flail?

I'm not trying to be a contrarion here but this - "In turn 3 u cast vampiric tutor searching for enchanment, turn 4 cast Zur, turn 5 attack zur and draw second enchanment to loop combo." Doesn't make alotta sense. On turn 4 you'd have the enchantment you intend to put into play in hand. Zur won't be able to target said Enchantment when he eventually attacks on turn 5. I'm not sure what you're trying to say here without you at least naming all the cards you intend to use for the implied combo.

So your analysis of 4 CMC slivers boils down to "their power / toughness is low, so therefore they are bad". Sure, if they were vanilla creatures sure I'd agree with you. BUT - reading the card explains the card. Say you have Magma Sliver and 3 other smaller slivers in play. With one attack you could deal 15 damage to a player. If another one of those slivers was Shifting Sliver, then that damage is unblockable. So you say that slivers are likely to be targeted for removal? Well if your opponents aren't brain dead then they absolutely should be targeting any of the previously mentioned. But again Slivers are in all 5 colors, so say it with me now: Run. Interaction. It stops your mass removal, or if you really wanna flex, run a commander staple like Teferi's Protection.

"Next things is what u do if some one play "Ghostly prison", "Moat" or "The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale" + "Winter Orb" or "Winter Orb" + "Static Orb" ?"

Harmonic Sliver. As for The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale - Beast Within. Ill repeat myself just the once - Interaction. As for my face, well...if you want we can play some games on Spelltable. Doubt you'd show. Also doubt you own any of the expensive cards you like to try to flex with.

But I digress, DoctorMunchiesPHD tell me more about your Intruder Alarm + Telekinetic Sliver combo. This is your page after all.

haki2022 Funnily enough I used to run a more Zur-Heavy list. In my experience he seemed to end up less useful as I bought more cards like Vampiric Tutor, just seemed more consistent and less-likely to get pathed the second it hit the board. Also I get why people run graveyard recursion style Overlord decks for sure they make for very explosive plays, but I'm going for a more control-heavy deck myself to better protect my combos and win-cons. It's been nasty in playtesting so far, current list is 4-1. Also Intruder Alarm is definitely in my deck, I use it to lock people out of games with Telekinetic Sliver lmao people do NOT like that interaction.

haki2022,

Hol up - so you think 4 CMC slivers arent worth running? So slivers like Shifting Sliver, Magma Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver or Root Sliver aren't worth running? That is a hot take that I can confidently say is just outright bad. Why are you suggesting Zur the Enchanter for a Sliver Tribal deck? As for Buried Alive and Intruder Alarm - valid suggestions, but not necessarily staples.

Hey lol, Seeing as you're on. For my 6th Doctor deck I'm thinking of trying an untap enabler but can't decide between Reveille Squad, Curse of Bounty, or to just go ballsy with Awakening. Right now I have Seedborn Muse, Quest for Renewal, Drumbellower, and Intruder Alarm for that effect.

Despite being the same physical card, once blinked the creature is a new game object with no memory of or relation to its old self. Merieke will not destroy them if she leaves play or becomes untapped.

Also, Intruder Alarm would also be pretty funny with Merieke.

Aggravated Assault, Amoeboid Changeling, and Intruder Alarm are must-haves in a Sliver Overlord deck. With Aggravated Assault, you tap 6+ slivers to pay for the ability, net positive mana, and repeat forever. While this mana does not survive to a main phase, you can use it to tutor every single sliver in your library to your hand.

Just as importantly, it allows you to infinitely untap Amoeboid Changeling--you can then use the infinite mana you also generate alongside Sliver Overlord's ability to take every single creature your opponents control for your own.

Intruder Alarm works similarly--if you have enough slivers, you can pay for Overlord's tutor ability, cast the sliver you just tutored, untap all your mana-producing slivers, and repeat until you have played all or a significant chunk of the slivers in your deck.

To make room for these cards, I would personally cut the fog cards. Fogs are not particularly good in Commander--they buy you protection only for a single round of combat against a single player. Not exactly a great use of one of your precious cards. Other cards to consider cutting are Wild Growth (there are better ways to ramp with slivers), Prodigious Growth (which is not needed on slivers, as they all pump themselves), and Awakening Zone (which is too slow for how fast sliver decks want to move and not needed since most slivers have a low mana cost).
