FenrisBurgess on Budget Almost-Competitive Slivers

Sliver and budget in a commander deck? Boi! W

  • The First Sliver is an objectively cheaper and better option than Overlord as you effectively get free slivers for each sliver you cast and the $$$ price is far less.

  • Morophon, the Boundless is also a cheap $$$ card that is an absolute must in a 5-color tribal deck.

  • Sliver Hivelord is not what I would call a budget card.

  • Your infinite combo requires a lot of pieces, and it (even with a tutor commander) is not likely going to be succeed due to the nature of the format. The cards synergize well, but there are simply too many of them to have the combo be a reliable win condition.

  • Some possible combos require Leyline of Abundance , but you are not running any general search besides Gamble and your draw is fairly weak.

  • I assume you are avoiding using Sliver Queen for the same reason I put duct tape on my wallet.

  • Look for more synergies besides infinite burn. There are a lot of slivers that boost power. You will want a back-up strategy of simply beating your opponent's to death if you can't find what you need fast enough.

Oblig eshim ush. Ji ah kuliem ela. Shashi narun nah.

xenosapien on sliver swarm, bring them slivers out

nice to see you´re a fellow Sliver player as well :) your deck looks real good and waaaaay different than mine!

I have since switched out The First Sliver for a Sliver Overlord as my commander, and also added a Sliver Hivelord into the 99 as well - that makes it pretty nasty to play against since as soon as I have my commander out (pretty often on Turn 4, sometimes even 3) I can dig up Hivelord and protect my whole board by making it indestructible :)

of course, those were the 2 most expensive cards I ever bought and my playgroup now hates me and refuses to play against the ("broken") deck :-P

I´ll try and upload it here soon to get your opinion on it!

Hello SHINOBIofFATE,

I love Slivers, and am more than excited to give you my two cents- however, I have a major pet peeve when it comes to deck descriptions, specifically the lack of a deck description which your page has. When you don't include a detailed description it's hard for me to get a feel for how you want to your deck to play. Plus, it'll be a big help for you as you can put some thought into how you want your Sliver deck to play...as Slivers are the most flexible tribe in all of magic (and for those of you who doubt that, or want to argue- fight me :P). So yeah, get your deck description right- here are some resources you can use to help you get started:

End Rant. So, onward onto actual suggestions. Since you're running Sliver Overlord you are going to go for a more control oriented deck. You'll likely want to focus on Slivers that help you keep a stranglehold on the board as you won't need any of the Lord Sliver s. They're simply irrelevant as you are rarely going to be swinging wide with this commander. I would just include the one Sliver Lord that actually matters: Sliver Legion .

  • Acidic Sliver - sacrificing Slivers is never ideal unless you are getting the better end of the deal. Sac-ing a Sliver to deal a paltry 2 damage isn't worth it. Cut.
  • Diffusion Sliver - doesn't really work in commander. Paying an extra to remove a pesky creature in Commander is hardly a tax. This card is only good in standard where you could play multiple copies of this card, and make that tax potentially or . Cut.
  • Morophon, the Boundless feels more like a win-more card - essentially it's a card that only helps you if you're already ahead. Cut.
  • Opaline Sliver - generally, you don't want your Slivers to be targeted at all by your opponents(hint Crystalline Sliver ) - not to mention this card is a total non-combo or non-bo with the previously mentioned sliver. Cut.
  • Shadow Sliver - losing the ability to block for evasion is a risky gamble. Since Overlord is the more Control oriented Sliver and doesn't really encourage an aggro play style this sliver will rarely afford you an advantage. You have better options for evasion in the deck already (in my opinion.) Cut.
  • Tempered Sliver - This Sliver only benefits you if you were playing a more aggro style deck - and also if you could play multiple copies. Getting a +1/+1 counter only if your slivers can hit the opponent is okay...but I think you could better use the card slot for something else. Cut.
  • Virulent Sliver - This Sliver is cute, but unfortunately doesn't offer much in the way of a valid alternate win option. Definitely another win-more card, as you'll need 10 separate instances of combat damage on each opponent. Honestly, that's not really feasible in my opinion - unless you had 4 of these in your deck. But alas, that is a Sliver that doesn't really benefit you. Cut.
  • Ward Sliver - This one i'm a little bit uncertain on as protection can be incredibly handy depending on the circumstance - but for ? That's a hefty asking price. I think you could put that mana to better use elsewhere. Cut.

So that's it for my recommendations regarding what Slivers to cut. As for the rest of you deck, i'll save those recommendations for when you can give me a bit more information on how you want your deck to play - are you looking for a more aggro play style? If so, i'd recommend Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Legion honestly - but that's for a later conversation. Look forward to your response - i'm always happy to see another Sliver deck - Chitinous Approval Ensues

Doombeard1984 on Sliver Overlord: Slivers Gone Wild

So a big +1 for you for the hive. With MH, have you thought about the combo of Sliver Hivelord + Spiteful Sliver + Blasphemous Act .... Its hilarious. Was playing a pod where someone had mass indestructible flyers... Turns out killing the other 2 and then pointing 143 damage to that players face for 1 red is strong lol.

Also, whilst the land base is good, fetch lands would make you so mana fixed. The land base in my sliver deck is by no means complete, there is still fetches to get, but just having the ones I have makes it so much more reliable to get my commander quick.

Jokulhaups is also really strong in an indestructible sliver boardstate lol.

Skyshroud Claim can also be awesome for getting those shocks.

When those boardwipes do happen, Yawgmoth's Will and Patriarch's Bidding can make your opponents cry lol.

Sick deck!

Firstly, +1 for the hive.

So, I am currently running my sliver deck with Jokulhaups ... Its like armageddon... But worse lol. Its great if you have Sliver Hivelord out and mana creators, it usually makes people scoop. Another good one is the new Spiteful Sliver , Blasphemous Act and Sliver Hivelord . Wipe boards and then with the damage, can legit kill a table.

If you can afford it Yawgmoth's Will is also super powerful in this deck.
