Quote from ardillacody »Dregscape Sliver along with Darkheart Sliver can really be an interesting combination to take in mind.
Lavabelly Sliver for me looks like a sideboard creature for burn matchups also.
And the most glorious sliver: The First Sliver can let us cascade almost to anything, even Collected Company and Cascade two time more, at least.
Quote from maniospas »First time posting while lurking here, but I do want to comment.
My opinion is that Domri as a better Judith, because a) it's pseudo-removal and b) a boltable anthem is not very impressive in modern. (Also, it shouldn't theoretically matter, but since this is kind of a budget archetype for the time being, getting a Cavern effect without the $$$ is nice.)
Command is interesting, but it's a win-more finisher that boosts speed a little vs combo; not committing to the board with a creature deck seems very unappealing in modern, since there are a ton of ways opponents can just grind games out. Playing some value engine that can get more creatures in the last noncreature slots (e.g. Light up the Stage?) creates more staying power, which in my opinion is more important.
P.S. Has anyone of the more experienced players in this thread tried maindecking Goblin Ruinblaster? I've found 2 copies to be pretty amazing (enough that I'm up to 3, but this could be a mistake without a means to accelerate it other than Banneret) since it's often timewalk with more mana but upside in the more difficult matchups.

Quote from Dressedspring1 »I actually think if we're open to splashing that Despark is the most exciting card in the set aside from Davriel. It's a single card that simultaneously deals with both leyline as well as the card advantage walkers that give us trouble like Jace and Teferi with a bit of utility in being useful against some creatures. I've played anguished unmaking in the past when I was splashing white and I think that this is generally going to be better when we want it, although I'm unconvinced that boarding to go after the leylines is ever going to be better than delirium skeins which was the direction I eventually settled on.
Quote from Marcovitch »in my pov, davriel is a budget liliana of the veil.
of course it does all what the deck needs, but it brings nothing that our deck is missing (to level up our MU vs tron for example).
your goal with that deck is to discard the hand of your opponnent down to 0 as quick as possible, and to maintain it.
Quote from dudu »Just played a 18 people tournament today. Went 3-2 and on top 8 lost to affinity. Lost to martyr proc(impossible matchup) and company with reliquary and colerahelm combo (he settled the wreckage my letal attack on g2 x.x). Won against budget hollow one, mono green stompy and humans. I played homing sliver main deck and it won me games against humans (fetch for galerider) and stompy. I’m a little desappointed with the deck in current meta, almost every deck is good against us. I’m thinking to try fast slivers instead the company, as my field is aggro, this version might be better, not sure.
Interesting, what makes you think Martyr is a bad match-up? I have never lost a martyr match, a few games yes but never a match.
