The Birth of the Swarm - [EDH]

Commander / EDH Aggro Casual Five Color Sliver Tribal



Awaken my child, and embrace the glory that is your birthright. Know that I am the Overmind; the eternal will of the Swarm, and that you have been created to serve me.

The Overmind

Hello to you!

I'm OP_Sigma, I've been playing MTG since Mirage and exclusively EDH for the past 6 years. It has been my favorite format since I opened my Mimeoplasm precon in 2012.

I play at a LGS that has Strong but fair as a motto, so no cEDH there.

My favourite place to play is with my friends playgroup, they're more midrange/lategame, games there can last for hours. The group is composed of learning and strong players. I don't plan on going infinite.

If my text is poorly written it is because english is not my native language.

The plan is to manipulate my library to get the most of my casacade effects and be agressive.

Protect the Swarm against wipes or use them at your advantage with cards like Bone Harvest , Footbottom Feast and Gravepurge to enable even more cascade effects!

  • Sliver Overlord : Well originally, it was an Overlord deck. But everyone who likes slivers will play that one and I wanted to try something special. And oh my.. the pain if it gets stolen I don't even want to think about it. Maybe I'll return to it one day, who knows?

  • Sliver Queen : I want to play casualy and with a sliver theme, the Queen is mostly used for combos.

  • Sliver Legion : I prefer it as a wincon and without the commander tax

  • Sliver Hivelord : I prefer to play it unexpectedly, I want my opponent to forget that I own that card and flash it/recur it in response to a wipe.

  • Morophon, the Boundless : Well it's new and I could play every WUBRG for free but 7 CMC is a lot, maybe in another version of the deck.

  • It's a new legendary!
  • Seems to be quicker than the other generals
  • As far as I know old Sliver players are more likely to use it in the 99 more than as their general
This deck is a work in progress and I'd like this deck to be the best version of itself. Hey even maybe a Primer someday who knows?

You opinions and suggestions are welcome, I want to know what could be missing.

  • LVL_666: For prefering the flavor and the love of playing Slivers over the obsession of competitiveness that comes with cEDH. Your decklist is the greatest and you are a great inspiration.

Many thanks for always being such a gentleman and wanting to help others with their decks.

Updates Add

New slivers including a legendary? OH YES!!!

As an obsessive deck brewer I just could not stand there without trying The First Sliver as a general.

Plus Cloudshredder Sliver is a blessing, great replacement for Blur Sliver .

I can't wait to play my next game with those changes!
