Sedge Sliver

Creature — Sliver

All Sliver creatures have "This creature gets +1/+1 as long as you control a Swamp."

All Slivers have ": Regenerate this permanent." (The next time it would be destroyed, instead tap it, remove it from combat, and heal all damage on it.)

So I would probably suggest changing Crypt Sliver for Sedge Sliver. Reason for this is because Crystalline Sliver and Crypt Sliver are a NonBo as you cant target the slivers with the ability.

I would also probably change Shadow Sliver for Shifting Sliver. Gives you the ability to block others, but you can't be blocked. Shadow Sliver is a double edged sword, as you also can't block.

You have the option of another mana Sliver in the form of Gemhide Sliver. Trust me, Mana is your most required asset. I would drop Virulent Sliver as, to be honest, I would not genuinely expect to win with poison counters. And if this was a win con I would be going hard on it, not just a 1 chance.

As the aim of your deck is to go wide, I would be tempted to go with Shared Animosity to pump your attack power.

You have Spiteful Sliver in there, why not include Blasphemous Act? with enough creatures, this in itself can kill off your opponents.

Heart Sliver replacing Reflex Sliver is a strict upgrade. Cheaper and still gives haste.

I would question the value of Spinneret Sliver when you already have 2 slivers giving you flying.

If you are going wide Horned Sliver could be an option, however may not be needed. I would be more inclined to go with a Synapse Sliver. Need to keep that grip full of more Slivers to power the Hive.

Now... onto the mana base...

I would strongly suggest getting more dual color lands which can come into play UNTAPPED. We are in a very intensive deck, and getting to that is super important. Chromatic Lantern could be super useful, and you may also wish to replace something with Morophon, the Boundless.

Whilst ABUR duals are super expesive, and to an extent Fetchlands too, Shocklands (Godless Shrine etc.) and Bondlands (Morphic Pool etc.) may be more accessible. You could look at the Filter lands too, or checks. I just think this could essentially speed up the deck exponentially

I will have another think about some other bits as well and will get back to you :)

Your current build does allow you to use Jegantha the Wellspring as a companion. Unless that changes, there's no reason not to.

For boardwipes, the obvious one is Cyclonic Rift, but it's pricey. I don't really understand the utility of Guilty Conscience except as creature removal, so something like Swords to Plowshares is probably more effective.

An interesting one is Endemic Plague, which would destroy your creatures too, but only works if you have Maskwood Nexus out. Other options are Fell the Mighty, Extinction, Magister of Worth, March of Souls, Nevinyrral's Disk, Planar Collapse, Retribution of the Meek, Sublime Exhalation. My pick besides Cyclonic is Nevinyrral's Disk, but it sometimes makes you a target. You might also consider Sedge Sliver to keep some of your slivers around.

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:

Survival of the Fittest Sliver Alter Show

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 ?

I forgot to mention, the two black regen slivers serve very specific protection purposes when looking to combo off:

Clot Sliver protects popping off with Mana Echoes as it can make use of the colourless mana as the combo piece drops into play and produces it.

Likewise, Crypt Sliver lets me have free protection in play to protect a combo piece the turn I go off, so that I can tap out to do so. When I'm looking to drop Morophon, the Boundless it's often an expensive proposition that might win me the game if it sticks. Crypt Sliver or Crystalline Sliver allow me to do that the second I get enough mana.

I didn't really even consider the interaction between the two pieces on an opponent's turn, since they were just included as redundant pieces for their purpose on my combo turn. When I was looking at protect pieces, all I saw in Sedge Sliver was that I'd have to hold up one more black.

For building a castle wall that's hard to kick over though, I'll definitely concede that Sedge Sliver is solid with Crystalline Sliver . Making it hard to wipe and hard to target certainly makes it tough to get rid of the little critters. That said, I'm usually reaching for Wrath of God , Damnation , Toxic Deluge or the like for wipes. None of it would protect me from any of my own decks. In fact, my first nonbo removals in this deck at the spreadsheet stage actually involved ripping my removal package apart because it didn't play nice with my protection package ;)

Hello again Doombeard1984 :)

Sedge Sliver was on and off the list quite a bit as it evolved. I like the synergy with Manaweft Sliver and Gemhide Sliver that you pointed out. Ultimately, I just cut Sedge Sliver to maintain curve. There isn't anything I'd pull right now at 3cmc to include that card. Maybe that will change in time.

Also, I built from bottom up to account for what colour I wanted to fetch in what order, and I generally want to dig for black before red, as black enables tutors, whereas red really only enables play late when I'm looking to combo off. I threw in the older Clot Sliver as regenerate redundancy for that very reason.

I'll definitely keep that in mind as I play though, and maybe dig for Hibernation Sliver or Basal Sliver if I see a nonbo in hand, as either would re-enable the regen at instant speed, and I'd have black on the table at that point if Crypt Sliver was in play. Thanks for the heads up!!

Greetings again Azielle,

So I was having another look at the list, and there is a bit of a nonBo in there. If a boardwipe was hit, and you happened to have Crypt Sliver and Crystalline Sliver , because the regeneration targets, you will not be able to regen your board. So, as having mana producing slivers is fairly common place, do you think Sedge Sliver would be a better include. The regeneration doesn't target and so each sliver essentially says "Tap: regenerate this creature" if you have a Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver in play.

Just a thought.

what about Shifting Sliver . Would make all your "Slivers" unblockable pretty much? You could also use Sedge Sliver and Crystalline Sliver as ma means of protection and ability to regen each "Sliver" for just 1 .

Sorry for the Sliver only suggestions, just Slivers are a knowledge base I have. Deck looks cool. +1 for sure :)

Greetings,

What about Sedge Sliver . Stops the awkward situation of having Crystalline Sliver and Crypt Sliver out and realising you cant regenerate your guys, and you also get +1/+1 on all your Slivs if you have a swamp.

Also, I see you are running Spiteful Sliver . So If someone is running some kind of Taxes/Pillow fort deck (think cards like Ghostly Prison , Propaganda etc), then Blasphemous Act can be a way of ending games without having to attack, and usually at the simple cost of . If you have Sliver Hivelord out as well this is especially fun as you get to keep your horde due to the Indestructibility.
