How do you gents feel about Rewind taking one of the 'counterspell' slots?

bigrigroy - I absolutely have to weigh in on this. No. Not worth it in a 5c competetive Sliver deck. You need to go as low to the ground as possible when running competetive countermagic - holding up mana for a spell that may or may not be cast is always the least desirable outcome. And before you think "Well what do you consider competetive?" here's my list (in no particular order):

Mind you this list is pretty subjective, and should be adjusted to one's tastes and meta - but this is what I'd consider competetitive. The absolute best counter magic is free, as you can bait out the big spells.

stiefanu this deck is very similar to another Maelstrom Wanderer deck that someone in my CEDH playgroup plays!

I think you should take our the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo and put in either Thassa's Oracle, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Labratory Maniac, and some tutors like Mystical Tutor, because tutors.

Other upgrade options include Extract, Force of Will, Force of Negation, Pact of Negation and Fierce Guardianship.

I think Pact of Negation might be a useful tool for a Underworld Breach turn.

You slapped the modern metagame really well. I would add some Pact of Negations against control decks and Force of Negation against other combo decks e.g. Ad Nauseam.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den is hurting modern (and should be banned everywhere other than commander and restricted in Vintage) and this deck works well against Lurrus of the Dream-Den decks, as they are slower advantage engines.

Keep it up with your masterpieces!

@ Reznorboy Thanks for checking out my deck and giving me some suggestions. Honestly this is a very early draft of this deck and might change significantly once I am able to play test it.

As far as cheep hexproof creatures I am already running Gladecover Scout, Slippery Bogle, and Silhana Ledgewalker. With my searching of gatherer the only other cheep hexproof creatures I see that seem worth it that I have been considering are Elusive Tormentor  Flip and Troll Ascetic. Am I missing something? What hexproof creatures would you recommend I add?

Furthermore what cheep counterspells would you recommend? I know the free counterspells. But I already have them for my cEDH deck and those are going to be expensive to pick up another copy of. I might pick up a second Pact of Negation for this deck down the road though.

What combo are you referring to with Raven's Crime? I don't think I've seen that card cast in EDH and I have been playing EDH for around 10 years. I always like combos I have never heard of before.

I don't think I'm running enough graveyard recursion / graveyard matters to make Life from the Loam good. Do you think I should be?

Honestly I am not worried about competitive players. I have Tymna the Weaver / Thrasios, Triton Hero cEDH built as well as a Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle built in a way that is high tier EDH but not quite cEDH. If other players want to play more competitively I have decks that can do that.

I might cut Propaganda down the road but Leyline of Anticipation lets you hold up counterspells on opponents turns and then cast stuff on their end step if they don't do anything you need to interact with. I fail to see how Leyline of Anticipation is a pillow-fort type card. However I have been considering Seedborn Muse to take advantage of flash.

Ancestral Vision something to do early and cards draw.

Pact of Negation to allow me to push through my combo

Exhume? I get my cards going, but everyone else gets something fun so this may better is it was Zombify or Profane Command

Memory Plunder with all the incidental mill I'm sure someone will have something I want to cast.
