OK, that's cool. So yes Sliver Hivelord is 100% legal. Very helpful card.
Now, for the steal effects, you use things like Amoeboid Changeling , Artificial Evolution , Unnatural Selection , Imagecrafter etc. You will also want lots of mana generation. You will also need to be careful with some slivers, especially Crystalline Sliver , as this will make it impossible to steal your opponents stuff

From 1 Sliver player to another, I gift you a +1 lol.
Also, as an interesting combo. Spiteful Sliver + Blasphemous Act can be hilarious as a win con. A great alternative if playing against a pillow fort deck or something. And if you have Sliver Hivelord out, then it is pretty much a 1 sided board wipe. Yippee!

So I think first thing to do is decide the direction you want to go with Slivers. They are super versatile due to the Lords they have:
The first 3 are the mainly used commanders. Examples my deck is a toolbox/combo/control type deck. Therefore Overlord made sense to me, as the tutor ability means I can get the right sliver for the right occasion. You can go for a go wide strategy, a go big strategy, a much harder line combo strategy, there is plenty to choose from. I would do some research on decks that run at least the first 3 as their commanders and see which one takes your fancy. I think the other thing to consider is your budget. Slivers can be fairly expensive to build. As you see, the cost of Sliver Queen is high as is on the reserved list. Also, the mana base can be pricey. It can be done cheaply, at the cost of some efficiency. It has taken me years to build the deck up to what it is, so it is definitely a deck you can upgrade over time.

KITTYMANHunkGTI, thanks for the follow. I am by no means one of the best lol. However, if I can help you make a deck, I am more than happy to do so. If I can help someone build and enjoy playing MTG, especially using my beloved Slivers, well that's a win in my book. I really would have a look at The Queens Egg deck as well (mentioned and linked in my deck desdeiption). This deck by Mortlocke is literally a thingof beauty. I was lucky enough to have some help from him on creating my own Hive.

Thanks for the upvote and comments KITTYMANHunkGTI. Much appreciated.
And yes, Amoeboid Changeling can help me steal my opponents creatures and even commanders. Not so great when Crystalline Sliver totally NONbo's it for me hahaha. You can also use Unnatural Selection as an enchantment version of this, or Artificial Evolution . I like The Blue Blob though.
Do you have a Sliver Hive of your own, or considering building one?
May 7, 2021 1:02 p.m.
Thanks for the comment and suggestion babydaggers. I did consider it, but thought, is it just a bit of an obnoxious wincon lol. But you are right, I should run it. What would you take out for it?
And also, I did genuinely find it enjoyable to play. Did find it a bit draw cards and not much else lol. This deck has only been played once though, so always good to consider other options.

Just a beautiful deck. I also run a Sliver EDH deck, but tend to have Sliver Overlord at the helm. I also tend to run a bit more counter magic etc. Fun little combo if you make a infinite brood of sliver tokens is have Spiteful Sliver and Blasphemous Act . A bizarre and hilarious way to win. I also use all thr Lords as well. Here's hoping for a new one in Modern Horizons 2. Please feel free to stop by my Hive and have a look. We must All hail...The Overlord and the The Queen .
Of course, a +1 given too

Well RA_HORAKHTE, I definitely see the reason behind your combo. And providing you have the life (which is a resource after all), you have a really good chance to "go infinite". Seems like solid combo.
I personally play The Overlord as my commander as I like the consistency that the tutoring a ability provides. I have a Swiss army knife of Slivers lol.
Intruder Alarm is a great, but dangerous card. I tend to only play it when I am about to pop off. It does effect the whole board, and some decks will benefit from this greatly. Elves can really benefit from it with their insane mana generation.

Hello RA_HORAKHTE, and thank you for your upvote for my Hive. Has been a labour of love, and am now embarking on a new part of the adventure for those elusive dual lands. Please let me know your thoughts, opinions etc. as they are greatly appreciated.
Also, stopped by and checked out your hive as well. V nice. Upvote duly given lol

Thanks Mortlocke for the kind words. II had the Homeward Path in there because I previously did not have anything in the deck to deal with a control magic effect. Since have upgraded and included a bevvy of counter-magic etc, so yes, don't feel The Path is required anymore.
I guess as the acquisitions increase, I will probably look to replace the Battlebond type lands ( Morphic Pool and its ilk) with the duals.
April 29, 2021 5:03 a.m.
Well my friends, today a new journey has begun....
Today I have bought my first OG revised dual land. I feel that now that barrier has been breached, I will end up buying more (possibly one a month). Savannah is the first one I have bought. 2 Reasons, one it helps me get the land more evenly spread in this deck, and 2.... My first ever EDH deck is so there is some sentimental stuff there. Cant wait to add it to the deck. What would you take out for it? I am considering the Reflecting Pool or the Homeward Path ... Mortlocke I feel I may need to ask for your guidance once more.
I have also bought the secret lair drop with the poster art, purely because that art looks awesome. That Nature's Lore will defo be in here.
April 29, 2021 2:43 a.m. Edited.
So, probably as dumb question but, how do you get up to date results for this? my All hail...The Overlord got a couple number one positions a while back, but nothing new for ages. Can we get up to date results?
April 28, 2021 2:05 a.m.
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:
- Diffusion Sliver out for Crystalline Sliver - Dont make it cost more for your enemies to target your stuff. Make it so they cant lol
- Talon Sliver out for Striking Sliver . Its a better costed version of the same card.
- Grow from the Ashes out for either Nature's Lore or a Skyshroud Claim . These would enable you to get a shock land, not just a basic, and Skyshroud enables you to get 2 or them. Even works with the Triomes.
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.

As Mortlocke said, I think Virulent Sliver is just too slow. Much more likely to combo out and kill with huge amounts of damage combined with my opponents board being decimated , or ETB effects, or triggers due to Spiteful Sliver and Blasphemous Act . At that point, a singular poison counter becomes moot. Thank you for having a look at my deck though, I really appreciate it. Any further suggestions, please let me know
April 26, 2021 4:25 a.m.
first off, a +1 for Slivers. ALWAYS! lol
So I can see you have the shell of the Prof's Sliver deck. Before I give some thoughts on this, what are you looking to do with the deck? Are you looking to make this a combo deck, a swing wide deck? a control deck? Great thing with The Almighty Overlord is that it makes your deck function as a toolbox, so is super versatile.
Will take a cheeky opportunity to ask you to have a look at my own deck as well. Opinions and ideas are welcome. And if you find some inspiration on what you are looking to do, then all the better.
Look forward to hearing from you

Totally get what you are saying about the lands. I am considering having a set of check lands or pain lands available should I find myself playing a 1 vs 1 game. As I usually play 4 pod though, personally I think they are better in that scenario.
As for the name thing, yeah, I kind of got bored of wanting one of these fancy looking names, but never knew how too. Found a profile with a tutorial on it. If I can learn it for the first time in very short time, your Hive mind geniusness will certainly get it in seconds. Have linked the deck/tutorial here: Username and Profile Customization Tutorial!.
