Training Grounds


Activated abilities of creatures you control cost up to less to activate. This effect can't reduce the mana in that cost to less than one mana.

legendofa on In what color to combo …

Welcome to the club, DndDungeonGeist!

Aside from personal preference, which Crow_Umbra covered nicely, always seems to have several tricks. Training Grounds, Gilder Bairn, and Seedborn Muse are great enablers, and it's almost trivially easy to get infinite mana and/or counters, if that's your thing. Counterspell and Heroic Intervention are pretty typical protective spells. And if budget's a concern, all of these have very inexpensive replacements that work just as well most of the time. Lots of drawing, mana, and stability make this a very solid color pair for combo.

DoctorMunchiesPHD Crypt Sliver winds up being more mana efficient in board states without Training Grounds. Love Brood Sliver always have always will. Frenetic Sliver is more a last resort removal protection and more often then not is a blue card to pitch for Force of Will or used to get Dormant Sliver off the board if I need to attack to finish someone. Don't really need mana reduction from Herald's Horn and it winds up not discounting a number of important Slivers in the deck. I'm not the biggest fan of the tutors that put the card on the top of the deck and not in hand, Worldly Tutor was the closest to making the deck among your suggestions but I chose Vampiric Tutor over it, due to the greater versatility and not having to reveal the card.

Training Grounds = [sad horn sound from The Price is Right] Mystic Remora is a great replacement.

Faith's Reward I run a playset of these effects. I will cut one and add this.

Tainted AEther = Epic card. Epic tax... Wrong colors haha

Land Equilibrium = you suggested this in my Skip Turns deck. This is a great tax after MLD but weak before. Going to chew on it.

Coward_Token on Murders at Karlov Manor

Spoilers are on

Hoping Nelly Borca's deck contains some new and efficient cards that give out creature tokens

Kinda wished Mirko, Obsessive Theorist also had the option to flashback an instant/sorcery for free

Missed opportunity to have a Massacre Girl murder commander deck to complement all those Detectives

Mastermind Plum seems fun, hope black will get more Treasure & artifact support. Obviously great with Prosper.

Juddith: feels kinda weird that Imp tokens are bigger than Devil ones but w/e. Gogo Blasphemous Act for a million hp.

Ertrata: Seems fun. Training Grounds helps here.

Nice upgrade, maybe you should consider Sundial of the Infinite for permanent copies frome Sliver Mommy. Also Training Grounds and Convergence of Dominion for cost reduction might be worth a try.

If you like, check out my Sliver deck: Mommy, Slivers!


Doombeard1984 on Slivers Everywhere

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

Training Grounds should be a must here. It is cheaper and more reliable than Zirda due to being harder to get rid off. I love love love this deck idea. I may want to brew something similar.
