Predatory Sliver Discussion

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.
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.

technically, "static abilities" don't use the stack. they're just always active. it should also be noted that Mirrored Depths doesn't have "static ablities", it has triggered abilities. triggered abilities start with "when", "whenever", or "at". an example of a static ability would be something like Predatory Sliver .

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.

DragonSliver9001 and Rhadamanthus Conceptually, I understand what you're saying, but I don't think that's what the wording in the quotes says. I don't see anything in the wording that makes it stack with itself. I say it's just redundant, like something having Flying twice (plus the text in quotes twice) from two Pulmonic Slivers.
The Predatory Sliver thing makes perfect sense, because it is each of the two Predatory Slivers (PS) that grants a +1/+1. PS #1 gives the boost. Also PS #2 gives the boost. So two boosts. No problem.
But our friend Lavabelly says that the new sliver coming in gives ITSELF a triggered effect when it comes in. It doesn't come in twice, so the effect happens once (no stacking).
Let's say there are no Lavabellies on the board. No creatures at all, let's say. There is a new Sliver card that I'll call Drain Sliver that reads "When this creature enters the battlefield, it deals 1 damage to target player or planeswalker and you gain 1 life". I have two Drain Slivers in my graveyard and I play that Patriarch's Bidding.
How much damage is dealt & gained? I say it's 2. Right?

Lavabelly Sliver stacks with itself. imagine all of that text being printed on the card twice.
so if i have 2 Lavabelly Sliver and play another sliver, thats 2 damage and 2 life because the new sliver would have 2 instances of the same etb, that each trigger separately.
exact same reason that if i have 2 Predatory Sliver on the field, all slivers get +2/+2.

Drakorya: as much as i love slivers (its my favorite modern deck. its on my decks page if you wanna check it out) i'm not sure if they have enough for pioneer. i tried to put a list together, but couldn't come up with anything i liked. there aren't enough good slivers in Collected Company range imo to go that route, and you don't want cmc 4+ slivers in a coco build. a pioneer sliver deck would likely have to go a midrange route. the problem with that though is that it basically gets locked into a GWx color combo imo, because Predatory Sliver is the only buff they get, and Bonescythe Sliver is the only 4-drop. the only 5 drop worth using imo is Battle Sliver . maybe a naya midrange build could work, but idk. best thing about it i see is the Venom Sliver and Striking Sliver synergy. Sliver Hivelord puts a great strain on the mana base. too many creature-specific rainbow lands prevents the deck from casting the removal spells it will need to survive.

The deck is lacking in pump slivers beyond Predatory Sliver due to card legality in the format, which hurts the deck's power. In addition, I don't think the red slivers added do much to help the deck. Perhaps a switch to sultai by dropping Blur Sliver and Striking Sliver and adding Leeching Sliver and Syphon Sliver , and then switching out the manabase, could help. Might be wrong and it may be working fine but I don't know.
