I think Riveteers Overlook would be a small upgrade (1 life) over Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse. You could also rock Maestros Theater over Rocky Tar Pit, and Cabaretti Courtyard instead of Mountain Valley.

One thing to note is that the Capenna lands won't be able to find your Overgrown Tomb / Cinder Glade like your current dual-color fetches can. Still, I think the extra landfall triggers in the same turn warrant the replacement.

Hey abierto,

Indeed it’s been awhile since you commented, glad to hear from you. Thank you for bringing these cards onto my radar, let’s discuss them - I can easily tell that Survival of the Fittest would dramatically change the way the deck plays – with Survival of the Fittest + Dregscape Sliver on the board, access to at least 3 mana, 1 creature in hand, and at least an additional I can combo out and win the game on that turn. The only drawbacks I can see here are the mana requirements coupled with the more than likely opponent interaction that would be coming my way. Given that Dregscape Sliver’s ability is only sorcery speed – that only solidifies my concern as A simple Bojuka Bog could wreck me If I do not populate my graveyard with care and proper timing. This makes me wish that Paradox Engine wasn’t banned – I really miss that card. The verdict is out on Survival of the Fittest, I want to like to this card but I can’t help but feel hesitant in including it (let alone the investment). I think I’ll maybe proxy it in and see where that takes me. Speaking which, check out this really awesome alter:

Dregscape Sliver on the other hand I’m considering including. Maybe cutting Patriarch's Bidding, as I do not like the mana investment and the potential added bonus of assisting opponents. In the metas I play in there are a lot of tribal decks – I’m sitting across from at least one or two other tribal decks every game. I’m ordering a copy today, so thank you for mentioning that card again.

Hi Sneuxfox (death by Snu snu?),

Welcome to my deck page! Thank you for posting. I’ve always wanted to work Magma Sliver into this decklist, but I don’t think it would be a good fit – Magma lends itself toward a Sliver deck that compliments a more Aggro strategy where the goal is to hit a “critical mass” of creatures and abuse enough evasion keywords to get a single creature to knock an opponent out. First Sliver's Chosen would be an absolute must include alongside Magma Sliver, as it would solidify a Voltron strategy by stacking Exalted triggers alongside Magma’s ability. I definitely agree that the aforementioned can get out hand when you have just one Sliver be the target of multiple triggers.

I agree that it's criminal that Magma doesn't make it's way into alot of lists, maybe it's due to most decks wanting to lean into the Mid-range Sliver tool box? Or maybe it's because the deck would need to be more Voltron centric? I decided to throw together a quick decklist as an example of what I think the average deck running Magma Sliver would look like:

What're your thoughts on the list, Sneuxfox ?

Hey, the CQ decklist is missing Cloudshredder Sliver, who's one of the best budget Slivers especially when Hivelord is Commander. It's missing Harmonic Sliver, who's excellent repeatable removal in multiplayer Commander. Tempered Sliver is good with Hivelord as Commander since it can make him bigger with counters. Blasphemous Act wrecks opponents creatures when Hivelord is Commander, consistently for one mana. Swiftfoot Boots gives Hivelord extra protection, combining indestructible and hexproof makes it very difficult for opponents to remove Hivelord.

Sol Ring is less price than Wayfarer's Bauble and much better ramp. Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone and Commander's Sphere are budget five color mana rocks.

The manabases in all CQ decklists are an afterthought, no Command Tower, they're terrible especially with five colors. Command Tower, Exotic Orchard, Unclaimed Territory, Path of Ancestry are all budget lands for five colors with Slivers. The five Tango lands: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh are budget and nice when playing 15+ basic lands. The Tango lands help with color fixing and make Farseek, Mountain Valley and Rocky Tar Pit better since they can search for one of them.

Good luck with the upgrading.

jkidizkool Thank you! In regards to the manabase, what would you suggest? I'm having a bit of trouble finding good budget picks for it (and because of modern legality, really wanted Rocky Tar Pit and Mountain Valley but nope).

     Hello! Nice build, +1! =)

     You've got a pretty excellent selection of Creatures and Spells, though I would recommend Three Visits and Nature's Lore . I think you could really take advantage of Brass's Bounty , too. Normally I would recommend more Treasure based cards for Korvold but since you're playing a Land based strategy it'd be a bit redundant here.

     I think Land cards that Sacrifice themselves for no additional mana cost is where I would be looking for upgrades to make this deck even better. If Pain Fetches aren't an option, I would definitely recommend Rocky Tar Pit & Mountain Valley . I think a Ghost Quarter would go nicely with your Tectonic Edge as well, and maybe a Strip Mine & Wasteland , too - depending on how malevolent you feel haha!

     And a bit of an after-thought: Lightning Greaves & Swiftfoot Boots are great. Korvold is always a removal target and Haste gets you growing and drawing sooner.

     I have my own Korvold deck and Landfall deck if you care to have a peak. Cheers! =)
