Hi there,

Saw your deck on the front page and thought I would have a peek. Lot of nice cards in the deck. I do have a couple questions/suggestions however:

Muscle Sliver and Sinew Sliver - How exactly are these treating you? I kind of feel that with your deck, you are operating on the game plan of reaching an infinite combo for your win, and not really a go wide strategy. In that case, Sedge Sliver and Sliver Legion are probably doing enough to give you a bump in creature size that Muscle Sliver and Sinew Sliver just don't seem to off much value to the deck.

As a Sliver player myself, I also question the need for colourless mana, or mana rocks that tap for only . I appreciate they help cast your non sliver creatures, but you have such a prevalence of Slivers in your deck, along with a strong mana base and rocks and dorks that tap for your colours, I question the neccessity to have such an amount of colourless mana generators. Personal choice on that one lol.

I also would question the lack of single target removal in the deck. Yes you have Necrotic Sliver and Harmonic Sliver, but Harmonic can be double edged sword as its a "Have to target something" trigger, so if you run out of opponents stuff, you are going for your own. And Necrotic is good yes, but if you need and you dont have it, you need to tutor it for between 1-3 mana, potentially then have to pay for it and then pay to activate it. Things like Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, or simple Swords to Plowshares, Assassin's Trophy or Path to Exile could prove very useful.

Anyway, just my take lol. Hope you are good, and feel free to pop over to my hive and have a look - Sliver Overlord - Predatory Super-Organisms

Hello there. +1 for a fellow denizen of the Hive.

Just a couple questions/suggestions.

  • Whilst Survival of the Fittest is an amazing card, is it really that useful considering your commander can literally tutor ever creature in your deck? Feels like, whilst a lovely flex of a card, seems a little redundant considering you have an ability in the command zone, which also doesnt mean you need to discard a creature as well. Maybe worth looking at something like a Training Grounds to reduce the cost of Sliver Overlord's ability.

  • You are pretty light on interaction. As a Sliver player you are likely going to be targetted lol. I know that pain. You also dont have much in the way of spot removal. I kind of feel that there is an oversaturation of Slivers in the deck, that maybe arent necessarily needed. Looking at removal, protection (Teferi's Protection and other cards like Heroic Intervention), and you could also consider counter magic maybe.

  • Knowing how you are looking to win ould make it much easier to offer suggestions on your brood. Are you looking to go wide, combo win?

  • Patriarch's Bidding is another really good reccursion spell which you are much more likely to benefit from than others.

  • Coat of Arms is scary against any other Tribal/Typal deck. Do you need it when you have Sliver Legion?

  • Cover of Darkness seems redundant when you have Shifting Sliver which is just better for you.

  • I am a big fan of Blasphemous Act in combination with Spiteful Sliver. Can genuinely be a win con in itself. Especially against those opponents using things preventing you from attacking or going full send attack.

Hope this helps, and feel free to pop over and visit my hive anytime

Update no one asked for: It's been over a year since I've messed with this one, but it's still a fun deck to play and I've been tweaking it a bit more. Added in some more mana, including another copy of the Manaweft Sliver. Added in the Bonescythe Sliver and a playset of Hive Stirrings for even more bodies on the field, steering this even further into the aggro direction. I've streamlined the card draw options down to three Vanquisher's Banner. It's efficient enough when half the deck is slivers and it gives the anthem effect, although it sucks when you don't draw one as there isn't really any backup plan.

I sent the Harmonic Sliver to the sideboard and pulled Sidewinder Sliver and Lancer Sliver out entirely to make room for the new stuff. Lancer was redundant with the Bonescythe being added, and the extra mana added in now easily covers the extra cost. Added in the two hivelords and the legion to close things out which was something this deck was lacking. Considered a second Sliver Legion, but I'd rather not see the card at all than see it too early, plus it's expensive. My original budget for this deck flew out the window a while ago, but I gotta draw the line somewhere, lol. Plenty of mana available to play them despite being off color, so no worries there either.

Path to Exile is still a champ of a card, but I've relegated it to the sideboard for now. Hit first, remove later, or something. Still not entirely sure how to fill the rest of the sideboard. This was pretty casual when I first built the deck, but it's running smooth enough now that I could probably play this out without dying on turn 3, so it's probably time I dedicate some real thought to it.

@ TheChanesaw,

Nope. As lovely as Sliver Gravemother is, she doesn't really work as one of the 99. Her themes are so unique that I feel compelled to make her the head of her own deck with Myriad and Encore subthemes shored up with End of Turn effects. The idea is to abuse the End of Turn step by routinely clearing the stack when it has the Sacrifice trigger hit at the end of combat (in Myriad's case) or end step (in Encore's case). The best part is when multiple copies of Sliver Legion or The First Sliver are on the battlefield alongside Gravemother resulting in a very fun and powerful play experience - I hope anyway. I'm starting to assemble a list, and will attempt to make a fun budget oriented Sliver deck.

Hi there,

Firstly a +1, as it is always good to have more added to the hive.

So had a quick look at your list and seems legit. Certainly seems like it is mostly based around a go wide synergy. Going on that, I would like to offer a bit of advice. Firstly, I think Merciless Eviction can be a really dead card. I would look to be using spot removal for exile such as Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile. I would be using modal boardwipes which you can rebuild from using Sliver Gravemother, and Merciless Eviction is a kinda non-bo. Maybe something like Austere Command would be better, and Toxic Deluge can still deal with those indestructable things.

I am also not a massive fan of Coat of Arms. Dont get me wrong, its a classic, but EVERYONE benefits from it. Something like a Shared Animosity may be better for you as you have so much evasion that toughness is less of a concern. I know its pricey, but maybe a Finale of Devastation could go search for your Sliver Legion and get to swinging with those big Slivery baddies. Can also use things like Natural Selection. Would also say that given the key words you can get just from your Slivers, Akroma's Memorial is a little redundant.

Anything to help keep your grip full is going to be good. Things like Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora and Guardian Project can give you pay-offs for you playing creatures, or taxing your opponents.

You could also replace a Wrath of God with a Blasphemous Act... is hilarious when you have a Spiteful Sliver out

If I can think of anything else I will drop some more on here, but hope it helps. If you would like to come and drop by my hive, you will be always welcome to come have a look around and leave me a message letting me know what you think :)

Just a heads up! Ponder is limited so you can't play it at 3 like the list says... Also I'd recommend swapping galerider sliver with Cloudshredder Sliver and the muscle slivers for Sliver Legion,Bonescythe Sliver, or Striking Sliver. Lastly I feel as if hibernation sliver does nothing relevant in the deck and would suggest swapping it with Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver. OH and Diffusion Sliver could also be good.

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 ?

DemMeowsephs I love your ideas about upgrading the mana ramp! The pain lands might be out of my budget but the others are great! You talked briefly about the creatures, but would it be worth it to add cards like Sliver Legion, and Brood Sliver?
