Latest Decks as Commander

Striking Sliver Discussion

Hey, who's the Commander of your deck? That matters when you trying to restrict the budget.

There's four choices here Sliver Overlord , The First Sliver , Sliver Hivelord and Sliver Legion . In my opinion Overlord and First Sliver are better Commanders than Hivelord and Legion. First Silver is the least expensive price Commander option because it's been reprinted in Modern Horizons 2 meaning in the coming weeks it's going to go down in price even more. You have Hibernation Sliver and Quick Sliver which are busted with First Sliver when it's Commander.

If Overlord isn't the Commander than it's a fine cut to make due to the budget restrictions because Overlord is much less powerful when it's part of the 99 than when it's Commander. Using First Silver as Commander and cutting Overlord opens up a lot more budget for the rest of the deck such as adding Syphon Sliver to abuse Hibernation. Hivelord and Legion are good with First Sliver as Commander because with cascade you can get a lot of Slivers on the battlefield which both these help with attacking Slivers. If Sliver win condition combos are something you want to assemble then Overlord is the better Commander.

In the editor in the section where you can add cards to the decklist find the Sliver who's the Commander and type CMDR after it's text.

The First Sliver *CMDR*

Some budget Slivers upgrades to consider:

After you've chosen your Commander and if interested in any of these suggestions than I offer more advice including cuts to consider and budget manabase options. Good luck with your deck.

Leeching Sliver and Striking Sliver might be good if you can fit them in. I also agree with Metropolis39 that Cloudshredder Sliver should be a 4 of.

For the sideboard, you could maybe take out some of the less useful slivers for more normal hate cards like 4x Leyline of the Void , Leyline of Sanctity , etc just to help with those matchups.

Doombeard1984 on Getting Slivvy With It

Your deck came up in the feed so thought I would drop in and see how its going. Seeing a few alterations. Here is a bit of food for thought though:

Just some ideas. Also a question for you. How are you getting on using the Sliver in disguise in the deck. You finding it is helping your plays? I have considered it, as it gives access to the top of my library as well as being a Sliver in most ways. I probably run a load less slivers and so would be a bit less effective, but I am curious about the results.

Hey, good start and nice Legion foil pull! Obviously you have to finish the manabase and you should really do that before you make any other changes. That being said here's some Sliver upgrades to consider:

Quick is very good with cascade, casting Slivers at instant speed.

What's your budget for the manabase? Would you like some advice on the manabase? Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice work in progress on a budget.

I'll give some card suggestions only for Slivers and lands and if you would like additional help with other cards than I offer more help in another comment.

Some cards to consider adding:

Changeling are Slivers even when the card is in your hand, library or graveyard. Amoeboid Changeling can change an opponent's creature into a Sliver and then you can gain control of that creature with Overload. Overload's ability to gain control a creature doesn't end at end of turn therefore you gain permanent control of opponent's creature. Mirror Entity is another changeling and it's ability can change all creatures you control power/toughness equal to the amount of mana you pay. This can result in huge attacks with high powered Slivers. Combine Entity with Manaweft Sliver and Sentinel Sliver after attacking while in combat tap each Sliver you control to make mana to pay into Entity.

Command Tower is a staple land in Commander for decks that are two or more colors, it's especially good with five colors. Path of Ancestry can be helpful with repeatable scry when you cast a Sliver with mana from it. Cinder Glade, Sunken Hollow, Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Smoldering Marsh are called Battle lands and they have good interaction with basic lands to ETB untapped. These dual lands are also two different land types which makes land ramp spells such as Farseek better since it can search for and ramp with a Battle land.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Spitting Sliver
  • Synchronous Sliver
  • Lymph Sliver
  • First Sliver's Chosen
  • Reflex Sliver
  • Sliver Construct
  • Metallic Sliver
  • Bladeback Sliver
  • Enduring Sliver
  • Frenzy Sliver
  • Spined Sliver
  • Poultice Sliver
  • Rupture Spire
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Jungle Hollow
  • Rugged Highlands
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Swiftwater Cliffs
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Unknown Shores
  • Cave of Temptation

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

First off, cool deck and idea. I think uro is not necessary in the deck - you don't need ramp because your creatures have low cmc and uro isn't a sliver. Also, in order for uro to function well, you need to fill your graveyard up, which is something this deck cant do. I also think the Great Henge isn't very good in deck because most of your slivers will have low power an COCO already provides card advantage. Adding more slivers instead of Henge and Uro would be better. My suggestion would be more Galerider Sliver and some Striking Sliver because cheap creatures like them synergize very well with predatory sliver, leeching sliver, manaweft sliver and metallic mimic. Also, for the mana base, I think cutting a few lands might be better. Maybe like 22? Also, I don't think you need that much simic lands, if you plan on taking my advice, you should put maybe 1 or 2 gruul and izzet lands.

Hello again great mentor - I made an update to my Sliver Queen deck, and somehow lost all of the "show" and "hide" buttons in the accordion menu. I have no idea how I made that mistake...and am just facerolling on the keyboard. I'd appreciate any sort of assistance you could provide...but i'm wondering what did I delete? Warning: this is alot of code.

and then theres the aforementioned Venom Sliver and Striking Sliver interaction. so a jund build would likely net the most potential removal.
