A "copy legion" themed Sliver deck seems like an awesome idea that I would love to help come into fruition. Copy spells that I think would be all-stars in this deck would be:

  • Reflections of Littjara: This card would likely be the heavy lifter for copy effects. It's a triggered ability that only requires you to cast stuff, which you really want to do in this deck.
  • Rite of Replication: This is a big splashy spell that can really get your army going. A good target for this spell would be Predatory Sliver, and Muscle Sliver.
  • Clone Legion: Seems like a good clone spell
  • Double Major: Seems like a good clone spell
  • Quasiduplicate: Seems like a good clone spell
  • Stolen Identity: Seems like a good clone spell
  • Mystic Reflection: This spell is interesting because when changing a creature an opponent casts to a Sliver (like their commander), you could just outright steal it using your commander's second ability.

Additional cards i'd suggest are:

  • Panharmonicon: Doubling copy triggered abilities always seems like a good idea.

  • Parallel Lives/Anointed Procession: All of the previously suggested copy/clone spells make token creatures. So, why not double the number of tokens made?

That's it off the top of my head. Honestly i've never seen a copy focused Sliver deck. This seems exciting! I'll be watching your list as it grows and changes.

Really surprised you don’t have any of cheap buffs slivers (Muscle Sliver or Predatory Sliver or Sinew Sliver). Which are usually core of Sliver decks, especially you have those colors. In my deck I have 4+4+4 and slivers grow quickly. Also Aether Vial works perfectly for sliver decks practically doubling the number of slivers entering the battlefield each round. Finally Sidewinder Sliver is perfect turn 1 drop. I also use Browbeat or Risk Factor if I would go out of cards, which is pretty often with that kind of deck.

The biggest issues in sliver decks is creature endurance. How do you deal with that (swipes can basically ruin your game)? I use Ward Sliver and Yavimaya Hollow, but it is still not enough. Mostly blue slivers give one.

And lastly - I am not convinced with Venom Sliver. If it will die before your slivers manage to deal 10 dmg all dmg dealt is for nothing.

Hey, good budget version of Slivers. Nice Morophon and Overlord :)

Command Tower and Exotic Orchard are two less than $1 each Rainbow lands that are staples for five color decks. Path of Ancestry is a fine tribal Rainbow land and it's been reprinted in Commander Legends. Sol Ring , Arcane Signet and Commander's Sphere are three budget staple mana rocks and all are reprinted in Commander Legends which will make Sol/Arcane close or even less than $2 each.

Quick Sliver lets you cast Slivers at instant speed and cascading at instant speed is powerful because timing restrictions for the card you get with cascade don't matter. Flash with Slivers is also good with Harmonic Sliver able to destroy an artifact or enchantment at instant speed. Crystalline Sliver maybe out of budget range at $7, but giving Shroud to all your Slivers protects them from targeted removal. Combine Crystalline with Sliver Hivelord to make your Slivers very difficult for your opponents to deal with. Shifting Sliver makes your Slivers unblockable in combat unless an opponent controls a Sliver.

Amoeboid Changeling is a Sliver since Changelings are all creature types, even if they're in your library or graveyard. Amoeboid combos with Sliver Overlord to gain permanent control of any creature an opponent controls since you change that creature before you gain control of it into a Sliver with Amoeboid. Mirror Entity is another Changeling and it's ability can change all Slivers power/toughness to any number equal to the amount of mana you pay. This can result in attacks with large powered Slivers and Entity has good interaction with Gemhide Sliver + Sentinel Sliver which lets you attack and then tap all your Slivers to make mana to activate Entity. Any anthem effects such as Muscle Sliver or +1/+1 counters that are on Slivers are also applied to the Sliver after you change the power/toughness with Entity.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Muscle Sliver is worthy of consideration.

Ward Sliver is evil but a useful option.

Blur Sliver and Reflex Sliver could help your guys get faster.

Quilled Sliver is an option.

Sentinel Sliver could allow you to attack and still have blockers or have mana dorks during and after combat phase.

Harmonize is that green card draw I mentioned.

Glimpse of Naturewould work well in this deck.

Shamanic Revelation and Collective Unconsciousare pricy but can yield great card draw.

Hunter's Insight can let you draw a lot.

The Immortal Sun could be useful.

Bring to Light is a way to tutor a sliver like hive lord.

Harmonic Sliveris helpful removal.

Sliver Hive could be a useful land.

Gotta admit, this deck probably really only has two ways to go; either infinite mana or buff heavier. Now I could go for Sinew Sliver and Muscle Sliver inclusions and really make it more combat-focused and overwhelming in the early game or I go full in on the mana gimmick. So for now I decided to embrace the later one by going for one of the classics adding Mana Echoes .

cutting down on fat (stuff like Sentinel Sliver and Brood Sliver had to go), added a second Sliver Queen as well as a Patriarch's Bidding for consistency/power. The addition of Cautery Sliver allows to heal myself in a pinch as well as to turn sliver tokens into damage missiles and get rid of Slivers with detrimental effects.

The combination of Striking Sliver , Predatory Sliver , Venom Sliver , Cloudshredder Sliver seems to be a good way to include an alternate/more conservative wincon.

Unclaimed Territory is great, don't know how I could miss that before :) So yeah...auto-include xD

...and saving the best for last: The birds flew away...probably gone south or something. However...don't fret! Due to Swan Song in the SB we definitely won't lack in avian friends. ^_°

Sectiron on Sliver Storm

Hi Jasinatael,

In creating this deck I researched numerous things to get started. Among these I looked at other sliver decks and on gatherer I went through all 0 cost cards, slivers and changelings. Unfortunately Taurean Mauler , like Chameleon Colossus , didn't make the cut. I avoided it because I preferred pump cards that have a more global effect rather than buffing just itself. This is because Taurean Mauler on its own can be blocked by a single creature if we don't have evasion or can be simply killed off when it becomes a problem. Furthermore it doesn't have an immediate effect on the board, for our fast/surprise kills, while the lords such as Predatory Sliver , Sinew Sliver , Muscle Sliver and Blade Sliver .

However, the card does seem interesting in the way that it can draw destruction away from The First Sliver , being able to get out of hand relatively quickly. For now I probably won't run it, but it might be a good option in future.

Thanks!

So I have a few similar cards as you, but their pricing is different. Muscle Sliver here is $0.34 while mine is $1.05. Predatory Sliver is $0.24 while mine is $0.46. I set it to common, modern, casual, even set the listings to slightly used. Anything I'm doing wrong or not doing?

if you're not going for beat down wins, cut the Muscle Sliver effects. And I would take out reliquary tower, you need all the colored sources or better utility lands, you got a Cavern of Souls right? Kessig Wolf Run , Bojuka Bog , Alchemist's Refuge , Gavony Township are some spicy lands to consider.
