Quick Sliver Discussion

Hey, who's the Commander of your deck? That matters when you trying to restrict the budget.
There's four choices here Sliver Overlord , The First Sliver , Sliver Hivelord and Sliver Legion . In my opinion Overlord and First Sliver are better Commanders than Hivelord and Legion. First Silver is the least expensive price Commander option because it's been reprinted in Modern Horizons 2 meaning in the coming weeks it's going to go down in price even more. You have Hibernation Sliver and Quick Sliver which are busted with First Sliver when it's Commander.
If Overlord isn't the Commander than it's a fine cut to make due to the budget restrictions because Overlord is much less powerful when it's part of the 99 than when it's Commander. Using First Silver as Commander and cutting Overlord opens up a lot more budget for the rest of the deck such as adding Syphon Sliver to abuse Hibernation. Hivelord and Legion are good with First Sliver as Commander because with cascade you can get a lot of Slivers on the battlefield which both these help with attacking Slivers. If Sliver win condition combos are something you want to assemble then Overlord is the better Commander.
In the editor in the section where you can add cards to the decklist find the Sliver who's the Commander and type CMDR after it's text.
The First Sliver *CMDR*
Some budget Slivers upgrades to consider:
- Manaweft Sliver : another Gemhide.
- Amoeboid Changeling : if playing Overlord as Commander.
- Necrotic Sliver
- Pulmonic Sliver : Slivers that die go to the top of your library to then be cast with cascade.
- Crypt Sliver
- Mirror Entity : combine it with Gemhide/Manawelf + Sentinel to make huge Sliver attacks.
- Winged Sliver
- Striking Sliver
After you've chosen your Commander and if interested in any of these suggestions than I offer more advice including cuts to consider and budget manabase options. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start and nice Legion foil pull! Obviously you have to finish the manabase and you should really do that before you make any other changes. That being said here's some Sliver upgrades to consider:
- Manaweft Sliver --> Enduring Sliver
- Quick Sliver --> Scuttling Sliver
- Shifting Sliver --> Lymph Sliver
- Crystalline Sliver --> First Sliver's Chosen
- Winged Sliver --> Reflex Sliver
- Crypt Sliver --> Poultice Sliver
- Bonescythe Sliver --> Bonesplitter Sliver
- Hibernation Sliver --> Cleaving Sliver
- Striking Sliver --> Lancer Sliver
- Sentinel Sliver --> Bladeback Sliver
- Venom Sliver --> Cautery Sliver
- Syphon Sliver --> Watcher Sliver
- Horned Sliver --> Battering Sliver
- Mirror Entity --> Might Sliver
- Realmwalker --> Sidewinder Sliver
Quick is very good with cascade, casting Slivers at instant speed.
What's your budget for the manabase? Would you like some advice on the manabase? Good luck with your deck.

hi ShiltonCDXX, I run a Sliver deck with Sliver Overlord myself, and a big key to this type of deck is the toolbox nature of it. Need mana, go tutor a Gemhide Sliver . want haste and flying, Cloudshredder Sliver . Oh no! Someone is wrathing... got get Quick Sliver and then Sliver Hivelord .
The point is, you will be able to get what you need. The tutor can get to for the cost really easy, and is much better than the random nature of Golos, Tireless Pilgrim .
Haste and Mana Slivers combined with a cheeky Intruder Alarm can also essentially mean tutor every sliver out of your deck onto the battlefield.
Hope this helps

Hey, nice work in progress on a budget.
I'll give some card suggestions only for Slivers and lands and if you would like additional help with other cards than I offer more help in another comment.
Some cards to consider adding:
- Manaweft Sliver: another mana Sliver.
- Cloudshredder Sliver: flying and haste.
- Harmonic Sliver: repeatable artifact or enchantment removal.
- Shifting Sliver: make all Slivers you control unblockable.
- Amoeboid Changeling: combine with Overload to permanently gain control of opponents creatures.
- Quick Sliver: cast Slivers at instant speed which is nice with Overload who can tutor for Silvers at instant speed.
- Mirror Entity: pump all Slivers to huge power/toughness for big attacks.
- Striking Sliver: first strike.
- Crypt Sliver: board wipe protection for all Slivers since regenerating a Sliver protects it from most board wipes.
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Path of Ancestry
- Unclaimed Territory
- Guildmages' Forum
- Cinder Glade
- Sunken Hollow
- Canopy Vista
- Prairie Stream
- Smoldering Marsh
- 5x more basic lands (1x of each)
Changeling are Slivers even when the card is in your hand, library or graveyard. Amoeboid Changeling can change an opponent's creature into a Sliver and then you can gain control of that creature with Overload. Overload's ability to gain control a creature doesn't end at end of turn therefore you gain permanent control of opponent's creature. Mirror Entity is another changeling and it's ability can change all creatures you control power/toughness equal to the amount of mana you pay. This can result in huge attacks with high powered Slivers. Combine Entity with Manaweft Sliver and Sentinel Sliver after attacking while in combat tap each Sliver you control to make mana to pay into Entity.
Command Tower is a staple land in Commander for decks that are two or more colors, it's especially good with five colors. Path of Ancestry can be helpful with repeatable scry when you cast a Sliver with mana from it. Cinder Glade, Sunken Hollow, Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Smoldering Marsh are called Battle lands and they have good interaction with basic lands to ETB untapped. These dual lands are also two different land types which makes land ramp spells such as Farseek better since it can search for and ramp with a Battle land.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Spitting Sliver
- Synchronous Sliver
- Lymph Sliver
- First Sliver's Chosen
- Reflex Sliver
- Sliver Construct
- Metallic Sliver
- Bladeback Sliver
- Enduring Sliver
- Frenzy Sliver
- Spined Sliver
- Poultice Sliver
- Rupture Spire
- Bloodfell Caves
- Blossoming Sands
- Dismal Backwater
- Jungle Hollow
- Rugged Highlands
- Scoured Barrens
- Swiftwater Cliffs
- Thornwood Falls
- Tranquil Cove
- Wind-Scarred Crag
- Unknown Shores
- Cave of Temptation
If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

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:
- Warped Landscape
- Blighted Woodland
- Mountain Valley
- Pillar of Origins
- Sphere of the Suns
- Armillary Sphere
- Battle Sliver
- Bonesplitter Sliver
- Cleaving Sliver
- Fury Sliver
Good luck with your deck.

How do you gents feel about Rewind taking one of the 'counterspell' slots? My thought is that it can enable mana to still be used on a tutor from Sliver Overlord, or some other sliver shenanigans like Quick Sliver or some other cheeky interaction

Wicker, Seedborn Muse has excellent synergy with Quick Sliver and is definitely a worthy inclusion (especially when Prophet of Kruphix is still banned). Slotting in Muse over Homing Sliver comes down to what's more important to your deck: Do you want increased consistency by having another tutor option when you can't get your commander out? Or Do you want to have an additional avenue of play by untapping your permanents between each turn?
I found my answer, as my inner vorthos is not keen to including non-slivers in this deck. But i'm curious as to what conclusion you will/have arrived at.
