mortlock wow thats good to know, i have a cool FNM Megantic Sliver ill add, now with Urza's Incubator he is a little less of a pain to play. Thanks for looking into the Mesmeric Sliver bit. He was always just a good politics player imho.

My general strategy is to have more spells than the table has removal. I don't worry about one or two people holding up a counterspell or a path to exile. Similarly, I tend to not worry about their plays either.

I get my stuff out faster than the rest of the table, then overwhelm with a force they can't hope to stop.

This tends to make all of my decks very heavily reliant on combat damage and combat tricks, but there are ways to mix that up. In my aforementioned Lathliss deck, I have a bit of cruel control such as with Mudslide and Citadel of Pain, as well as Blood Moon and some others.

Then I passively create damage via Chandra, Awakened Inferno, Impact Tremors, Dragon Tempest, Warstorm Surge, Scourge of Valkas, Terror of the Peaks, Purphoros, God of the Forge and more. Also Sarkhan the Masterless

Ramp, I've got Mana Crypt, Ancient Tomb, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Mox Amber, Chrome Mox, Mox Tantalite, Mox Diamond and other staples.

Even cost reduction via Ruby Medallion, cloudkey, Urza's Incubator, Herald's Horn, Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman.

I can cheat via Sunbird's Invocation, Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast and Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded - who also serves as a haste enabler on top of like the six other haste enablers in the deck. Oh and Spinerock Knoll.

It even has recursion. For example, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Vesuva and Thespian's Stage.

...it's like a $1,000 deck... For a $4 Commander, lol

i'm not sure as to what your budget is but if you're still looking for suggestions.

you can use Mana Crypt Sol Ring for generic ramp. Arcane Signet Fellwar Stone for color fixing. Commander's Sphere Mind Stone to draw when they're useless. Orb of Dragonkind helps you dig through your deck in a pinch. And finally Urza's Incubator reduces their cost.

Both Xenograft and Urza's Incubator are already in the maybe board. Xenograft I didn't feel I needed after some testing , although I can easily rplace Trickery Charm or Imagecrafter for it. And Urza's Incubator I don't have and is kind of expensive, so it's not currently in the deck.

You missed Xenograft, my guy. And Urza's Incubator for major luls. Won't do anything until Maskwood Nexus is online, but then all of their creature spells cost less to cast lmao

Thank you so much for the suggestions. Urza's Incubator is a great choice. Also that makes complete sense about the poison counter suggestion. My only reason for keeping it was when I grabbed all the slivers from the deck, it was a little bit of extra salt in the wound to also die from poison. but yeah, naturally as the groups main target, I could use another counter. Thank You!

Always happy to see a Sliver deck, HCO_Guitars. I do have a few suggstions:

  • I'd reconsider the inclusion of Heartstone as it can also benefit your opponents as well. This deck is tagged as being "competitive", so you generally don't want to play spells that are a net benefit for the table - only for you. I'd suggest replacing the previously mentioned with either: Urza's Incubator or Herald's Horn.

  • Virulent Sliver is a wasted slot. Why? Because for you to actually win you'd need to have 10 separate instances of your creatures assigning combat damage to a single opponent for them to actually lose to poison damage. I do see that your deck has a few creature copy effects, but in my personal opinion you need a lot more copy effects for this to be a viable alternate wincon - even in a casual deck. I suggest cutting the card altogether for another counterspell effect like Counterspell, Swan Song, Dovin's Veto or Delay.

I think you could potentially lean in more on the creature copy subtheme of the deck and just go all in on a unique vision for Sliver tribal aggro, but that's just me. +1 for Slivers and good luck in your adventures piloting this iconic tribe.

Oddly enough I would suggest cutting some tribal payoffs like Vanquisher's Banner, Door of Destinies, and maybe even Urza's Incubator just because you have a lot of non-werewolf creatures in the deck so these aren't as good as they would be in other tribal decks that are more "pure". Also, you can consider cutting some slower cards like Ranger Class. It is good, but very slow and you have to pump a lot of mana into it before it is powerful.
