Maybe Karador, Ghost Chieftain would fit this deck?

Reznorboy on Slivers Except Not

3 months ago

So, I was thinking, and I had kind of a realization. Why is it that EVERY person who plays Slivers (in EDH of course) uses a Sliver as their commander? Now, there's obvious upsides to doing this, but at the same time, I was thinking, this is somewhat limiting. For example, what if someone were to play Alesha, Who Smiles at Death as commander in a deck of Slivers. Alesha revives a good majority of the Slivers, and gives access to most of the colors necessary. Name one Sliver commander who can do reanimator/extra combat shenanigans. Other possibilities that come to mind are Karador, Ghost Chieftain, Illuna, Apex of Wishes, as well as Chulane, Teller of Tales. I think that as long as the commander has 3 colors, and is able to benefit the overall gameplan, they can see success as a Sliver commander. What do you think? (Or what ideas do you have)?

TypicalTimmy: no cropping involved but you could just go for Karador, Ghost Chieftain, both he and zombies likes self-milling

So, over all your deck feels slow and vulnerable. If Altar of Dementia gets exiled what then? turn dude's sideways? Plus your extra vulnerable to GY hate, not only shutting down your commander but, your game plan as well. With all those tags you have under your deck your missing the one tag that is your deck Mill. And your aim it mill 10 to 15 cards at a time spending your turn to recast your creature. I do like milling my opponent but, in commander to pull it off you should look for ways to hit each opponent not just one at time and to make a looping combo out of it. For the most part I feel I see what your trying for but, at the end of the day with 3 opponent your going to be fighting an up hill battle ever time you play, sorry.

Kathril, Aspect Warper has one big glaring issue when I try brewing with him as a commander. Within junk//Abzan colors even, theirs a commanders who do it better. Take your deck for instance, Ghave, Guru of Spores does it better. Comes into play with counters, doesn't need the GY to be "good" and can interact with your deck more ways then, one. Karador, Ghost Chieftain makes a better reanimator and Nethroi, Apex of Death makes a better pump deck. The one shell I seem to find for it is blink/flicker/whatever you want to call it shell where you work at abusing EBT effects till you get some combo of Restoration Angel and Felidar Guardian and just keep looping them with each other. In your case you'd use Karmic Guide sac to the Altar of Dementia but, as it came into play use it's ability to return Reveillark who targets Karmic Guide but, on the stack you use the Altar to sac Reveillark who gets targeted by well you get it. How ever this shell doesn't need Green or Black to be good so, it just feels forced you know what I mean. At the end of the day I think Kathril, Aspect Warper is doomed to being a 99 card and not a commander.

That's more my 2 cents on Kathril, Aspect Warper more then the deck it self

areas to cut;

Standard Safety Equipment, all of it. You don't need your creature alive do you? and if your on the back up plan of turn dudes side ways well Kathril, Aspect Warper can be Hexproof and what have you plus share those with others.

Kunoros, Hound of Athreos: non-bo. I cast Reanimate on... oops no you dont.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir: needs to attack to get counters and your looking for more passive counters and Vampire Nighthawk is better stat stick.

Idyllic Tutor: your in black you can do better.

Signets: Your in green, the Rampant Growth of the world thin your deck and ramp and avoid hate like artifact and non-basic . Note doesn't save your card count.

Cabal Therapy and Cabal Therapist: Don't let your opponents know whats your hand, just no. Knowing it 1/2 the battle GO JOE

Any way good luck and have fun
