Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
dunno about this guy. I guess he could be
okay, and probably required in a Sliver deck, but
I don't think he's all that. I like the idea
of drawing a card more than adding a 1/1 to play.
Then again, maybe I'm on crack. It's good,
dont; get me wrong, but not awesome like I hear
everyone else say.
In limited, why the
hell not? A 3/3 that gives 1/1 with repeated
dome shots? Nice.
Hmm... this is kind of
like the Rith of the Sliver world. Make your
Slivers unblockable except by other Slivers (see
Shifting Sliver), and you start makin' babies as
long as you're not playing another Sliver deck.
And you don't leave yourself vulnerable in an all
out assault, because for each attacking Sliver,
you will make a 1/1 (probably bigger) Sliver baby
that can take the heat next turn from your
As far as Limited
play, it could be decent if you get some good
supporting Slivers. In constructed, this card is
crazy good in the right Sliver deck.
sliver, to say the least. Gives you more slivers
when you damage a player in combat. If you can
swing the board your way, then it's all gravy.
Would be cool in a sliver deck, although really
sucky in the mirror. I see a lot of sliver decks
In limited, I don't
like slivers. Hopefully, this'll be the last
time I have to type this, but the symmetry makes
them crap in my opinion.
he makes the cut in limited, particularly if for
some reason you're playing
u/g and have the unblockable one, but other than
that, he's a bit pricey.
constructed - 2.5
limited - 3
That is an awesome anility, in other formats you
the Queen, who is hard to cast...and this guy is
He usually wins games, if you cast him, In
is too slow, in type 2 the rest of the slivers are
sub-par so, who knows, Limited, a 3/3 that makes
who make other 1/1s lol, why not play it?
Brood Sliver –
Expensive but huge, what a way to multiply your
Sliver horde. Unfortunately I believe that this is
a “win more” card. After all, if your Slivers are
swinging for combat damage that means that they
are getting through and you are already winning
the game (probably).
Constructed – I expect
most Sliver decks will have this guy but I’m not
sure he will be key to any of the best builds.
Best decks like cards that help them win not cards
that let them win more – 3.90
Limited – What other Slivers do
you expect to get? May be worthwhile especially
with a lot of Provoke creatures and extra Slivers.
– 4.00 (very dependent on other draws)
Why do the Slivers
have to be so expensive?!?!? Whatever happen to
playing a Sliver deck that was aggressive and fast
like a weenie deck but it was also able to grow in
the late game? This Sliver has an amazing ability
but a cost that will make you think about using
him twice, then again if type II keeps getting
cards like this one we'll be facing a really slow
environment. I think this guy's too slow for the
current environment and don't believe that Sliver
decks will do too well, but if everything slows
down then he could be ok. His ability is great
because he can build you an army in a matter of
seconds. If your Slivers can hit while this guy's
in play it could just as well be game over for
your opponent since all your Slivers will be
multiplying per turn but I still think he's too
slow. >< He might do well in limited tho and I
would consider him as a first or second pick on a
draft because he has a lot of potential. It just
depends on the environment I guess. 0.o
Brood Sliver is
probably my favorite of the new batch of Slivers
(not a hard category to win), green's rare Sliver
has the potential to amass a huge army in a short
period of time. Five mana for a 3/3 is still
pretty steep, but a U/G Sliver deck with Birds of
Paradise and Llanowar Elves could make it a bit
easier to cast. A Sliver deck based around Brood,
Synapse, Shifting, and Root Slivers looks to be
the best way to try and abuse the new batch of
well.....It's rare, a 3/3 for five mana without
evasion. Nope, don't think so.
