Quote from dondeebecause there is a lot of new mechanics that the old slivers dont have like.... Annihilate? Hexproof? Evolve? WOTC? this is just sick!
Quote from Smores_PrimeNot sure why they chose to redesign the slivers, since they have such a long history of looking the way they did, but I don't really mind either.
Quote from Magic MikePlease don't attribute DarkSapphire's quotes to me. You are only making things more confusing.

Quote from HeylookitsamooseQuote from Magic MikeSliver evolution is not instantaneous. They are only capable of adapting their form based on whatever other types slivers are nearby.

Quote from Magic MikeNo offence, but you should understand the
conversation before jumping in and arguing with people.
Quote from Rancid RaptorA bunch of people are saying they are from Shandalar and are the Original species volrath changed, because of one line of flavor text.
However Doug said these are in fact Dominarian. Just saying it because people must of missed that.
And yes, they could be more powerfull in broods, but the way they were geneticly manipulated by Volrath makes it hard for me to think they would seperate from each other.
Quote from Rancid RaptorThose of you STILL SAYING its not Dominaria.
the voice for vorthos page with Doug whatsit said that these are in fact the Dominaria slivers. Its just 'been a while' since we seen them last.
Which makes it even harder to accept these new slivers into the hive. (not to mention since it IS dominaria, there is only ONE hive which makes thier non-global abilities still wrong)
Quote from Magic MikeThat is not how slivers work. Each sub-species of sliver evolves separately from the whole. They then share their unique adaptations with the whole. That is why the species is collectively called "slivers".
Quote from Magic MikeAnd The Hive did not have access to poisonous until a segment of it evolved the ability after hundreds/thousands of years of wandering Dominaria.
Quote from Magic MikeOld Slivers had a unique form of shapeshifting that made them distinct from shapeshifters. The way these new slivers are described do not.
Quote from Magic MikeIf they are capable of altering their form to meet whatever challenge comes their way, then why have The Hive at all? Why do they need to share abilities when they could just auto evolve?
Quote from Magic MikeThis is where new slivers fail in the flavor department. This is what happens when one makes sweeping changes to a fantasy species lore without really understanding the original lore to begin with.
Quote from bfellowIt's similar to blocking with creatures with Banding.
