    So since some people have begun calling the new slivers "Predators" and the old ones "Aliens" which do you like so far. Aliens or Predators?

    I'm old school so give me the Tempest/Stronghold ones or face my Rath.

    I find that "Predators" may have potential, Hopefully Theros some how has more slivers. Doubtful sense its a Greek mythology set.

    It's interesting. I kind of like the variety, although I think the original Slivers looked the best.

    Slivers you control are indestructible and have infect.

    Both equaliy
  • #8
    They're both good. I recognise a need for a core set to be more simplistic.

    Sure is a nice Library you got there.. be a shame if something were to happen to it...
  • #9
    I like them both as far as art goes, but I prefer the old mechanic as opposed to the new one-sided mechanic.
  • #10
    Personally I'm one of those guys that hates slivers in general, but they were 10000x better as a unique race with intersting interactions in a mirror match.

    I absolutely abhor GENERIC HUMANOID FACTION #13562 with an all-upside-all-the-time mechanic.

    what potential do you think "Predators" have ?

    Your poll lacks the options "Both" and "Neither" and leaves the criteria untouched. So even if moved to a more proper forum than Speculation (where this thread doesn't belong) it would still be a pointless thread designed to instigate more pointless polarization on a topic that already is creating more than enough overly heated arguments.

    Why would you want to do that?
    Planar Chaos was not a mistake neither was it random. You might want to look at it again.

    I call the new ones neo-slivers and liked the art a lot better. They were their own creature type the new ones just look like humonoid beasts to me.
    Also i wished the new ones had the creature types elder sliver to indicate they were different from the others.

    Old slivers are better, hands down, no-contest.

    Old ones have 2 legends and better abilities.

    make that mythic rare and have indestructibility and you have one hell of a deal

    edit: if any species in the whole of the multiverse could kill the eldrazi it would be the Slivers, and that would be interesting story wise.

    I like the new slivers more, because I don't like the snake look of for example Battering Sliver. I think the more humanoid looking new slivers are better, although there are some old slivers whose arts I like (Barbed Sliver or Armor Sliver)

    even in the movies, aliens are WAY cooler than predators. but i mostly voted old slivers because you can't have an interesting slivil war with any of the new slivers! so lame, my friend and i used to both have sliver decks which made for the most hilarious mirror matchup.

    Predator type of art has been seen and used a gazillion times, while the alien type slivers were unique and very "twisting".
    My vote goes for the Aliens, despite liking the quality of predator art more than the other one, but that is just natural becomes of progress through time.
