Best Sliver ever? Most Slivers grant tap
abilities, like Screeching, Telekinetic, Gemhide,
and Psionic. So you use this to ensure a fresh
supply of Slivers in your hand, not caring that
you're not attacking. Then if you decide you
want to attack, you use one of Frenetic,
Mindlash, Necrotic, Psionic, or Basal Sliver to
get rid of it. It does its job, and then its job
allows it to get out of the way.
Best. Sliver. Ever.
2/28 - Dormant
The things Dormant Sliver is good for are as
follows: 1) Sideboard it against a sliver deck,
2) Sacrifice to Necrotic Sliver, 3) fill up the
hand of a sliver deck whose game plan is to
finish your opponent with Psionic Sliver. I'm
not terribly excited about any of those for
constructed, much less for limited, and option
three sounds amusing for casual.
Constructed - 2-
Casual - 3
Limited - 1+ (except out of the sideboard of
that one sliver-guy in draft)
Similar to Vampiric Sliver, this is more of an
anti-sliver card than a card you'd want to run
in a sliver deck. The price for what you get
isn't that spectacular; a 2/2 body and a card
for 4 mana. There's not a competitive sliver
deck in constructed, so there's no reason to run
this over something like Carven Caryatid.
In casual, maybe you can use it against an
opposing sliver deck, but isn't Vampiric Sliver
better for that?
In limited, I'd take it if there was nothing
better in the pack, but keep it in the sideboard
and use it against a player with a lot of
slivers. At worst, it's a body that replaces
