How it Works

Slivers share a hive mind. Whatever one thinks, they all think. Whatever one can do, they can all do. Slivers have mutated over the years, and the “Sliver Evolution” deck shows off their new, deadlier skills. But they still think the same thing they always did: "Smash anything that’s not a Sliver."

As soon as the game begins, start building your Sliver collective. Gemhide Sliver Buy is especially good early since its mana ability helps you play other Slivers. Don’t take any risks in combat with your first few Slivers. If they’re still in play a few turns later when their friends show up, even the most mild-mannered Sliver will turn into a ferocious attacker.

The creatures that turn your hive into a potent offensive force are Bonesplitter Sliver Buy, which gives all your creatures +2/+0, Watcher Sliver Buy, which gives all your creatures +0/+2, and Might Sliver Buy, which confers both bonuses at once. Once you’ve assembled enough pieces to make your Sliver army into a fearsome force, start attacking. Your opponent may be able to take down a Sliver or two, but the blockers will surely be paying the price. When you attack, you’ll need to judge whether it’s best to send in all your Slivers or whether you should hold back the most important ones, like Might Sliver, to protect them.

Other Slivers can enhance your horde in more clever ways. Fungus Sliver Buy puts a +1/+1 counter on any Sliver that’s been dealt damage. Quilled Sliver Buy lets your Slivers deal 1 damage to an attacking or blocking creature. Use them together! Have one of your Slivers attack, then tap another Sliver to deal 1 damage to it, thus making it permanently bigger!

Another nifty duo is Sidewinder Sliver Buy and Spined Sliver Buy. If they’re in play together, whenever one of your Slivers becomes blocked, that Sliver gets bigger and the blocker gets smaller! But for game-ending power, look no further than Pulmonic Sliver Buy. Not only does it gives your entire horde flying, but whenever any of your Slivers is destroyed, it's put on top of your library where you can draw it next turn.

Once you have some games under your belt, it’s time for the deck to evolve. Ravnica dual lands, like Temple Garden Buy or Sacred Foundry Buy, will make it easier to play your Slivers. You can try including Time Spiral Slivers of a different color, like Psionic Sliver Buy. Or you can check out the awesome Slivers in the Tempest , Stronghold , and Legions sets.
