Sliver Hivelord Discussion

gvazdaus on The Queen's Egg

I’ve stumbled across Lifeline. My meta has become very small due to the pandemic and for a variety of reasons including Crystalline Sliver and Sliver Hivelord, removal has moved toward sacrifice/exile effects. Outside of Tajuru Preserver which killed the theme, there’s little recourse for recurring Fleshbag Marauder. I understand there’s symmetry, which I remember being a turn-off for you in relation to Intruder Alarm but Lifeline seems to be a sure fire way to keep slivers in play without relying on coin flipping or having Patriarch's Bidding.

I would throw in Sliver Queen, Coat of Arms, Belligerent Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver,Lavabelly Sliver, Sliver Hivelord, Sliver Legion, Sliver Overlord, and Syphon Sliver. I would remove a lot of the slivers that give other slivers an ability that costs 2 mana to activate.

@Coward_Token: As the title says, it's jank, slow and a gamble. It looks very fun but not like "high power edh" This is about who's the best commander and whether Mishra, Artificer Prodigy is stronger than Sliver Hivelord / Edgar Markov. And he just isn't.

In your opinion, are Sliver Hivelord & Edgar Markov (two of the strongest tribal commanders ever) as bad as Lorthos, the Tidemaker & Ryusei, the Falling Star and besides that they should be weaker than Pianna, Nomad Captain & Mishra, Artificer Prodigy (I don't understand why Mishra is ranked so high in a singleton format !? he is at most tier 7...)??

They should be at least Tier 3.

  • Exchange Ghost Council of Orzhova with Teysa Karlov, because she's easier to cast, is more versatile and has a lot more combo potential.
  • Exchange Haktos the Unscarred with Winota, Joiner of Forces (he's maybe even better, like ElRobusto already mentioned), because he's with Feather one of the best Boros commanders at the moment. He's generating a lot of value and he's swarming the board pretty fast!
  • Exchange Rasputin Dreamweaver with Braids, Conjurer Adept, why? I mean, c'mon a 6 mana 4/1 with a mediocre effect should be better than cheating in Eldrazis for free protected by counterspells and stuff?? In my opinion she's almost as good as: Jhoira of the Ghitu
  • Exchange Slimefoot, the Stowaway with Zaxara, the Exemplary, it should be very obvious why Zaxara is stronger. 1. Colors + Blue means you have all the blue good stuff (counterspells, draw etc) 2. He costs only one additional mana, has Deathtouch and can produce mana and as an additional positive side effect you can create some hydras 3. in these colors Zaxara is incredible easy to break, because you have everything you need, like draw, ramp, removal, recursion, tutor, counterspells, discard etc....

Or do you really think that the commanders I mentioned above are at the same power level as Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens?

The biggest weakness of planeswalkers are creatures.

To get rid of creatures the most effectively, the deck needs lots of board wipes.

To be able to cast lots of board wipes effectively, the commander needs indestructible.

That's why my choice is Sliver Hivelord, the threat to the multiverse that is so scary that every planeswalker puts aside their differences to defeat the slivers. Resistence is NOT futile!

I know a guy who built a very ridiculous deck with Sliver Hivelord. Basically, 1/3 is lands, 1/3 is planeswalkers (especially those that produce tokens or some sort of protection), and 1/3 board wipes (for creatures). Since it was 5 colors, he had access to the best of everything, and was constantly wiping the board of creatures. Sliver Hivelord was indestructible so he could use it as a body.

Also, Angus Mackenzie if you're into memes.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim over Sliver Hivelord as the commander. Or Ramos, Dragon Engine. I don't even see the point in running a Sliver lord in a god deck. Morophon, the Boundless works too.

ChinoEX:the thing that makes Slivers get old, fast, is when you don't win. Playing Slivers in a conventional way - just attacking - will put you at the mercy of this particular tribes greatest weakness: board wipes.

Me: Laughs in Sliver Hivelord + Crystalline Sliver.

Tell me another joke. But in all seriousness, that's not an issue with the tribe - it's an issue where there isn't enough interaction built into the deck. If you are in 5c, you should be running Counterspell, Negate, alot of "no, you may not" if your meta decides to shift hard in removing a large number of creatures.
