Quote from Outcryqq »Good list. How's your budget? Patriarch's Bidding would probably work better than Empty the Catacombs. A few really powerful slivers that aren't currently in your list are Manaweft Sliver, Galerider Sliver, and Sliver Hivelord. I'm not wild about your slivers that only pump their toughness - they should always win in combat and kill people because you're almost always attacking with Sliver Legion or evasion. And though not important against Edgar, counter magic can hurt you, I'd probably play Root Sliver. But I think your list will perform well, I think the biggest missing piece is Manaweft Sliver to help you with ramping up your sliver production.

Oracle text about unearth:
If a creature returned to the battlefield with unearth would leave the battlefield for any reason, it’s exiled instead — unless the spell or ability that’s causing the creature to leave the battlefield is actually trying to exile it! In that case, it succeeds at exiling it. If it later returns the creature card to the battlefield (as Oblivion Ring or Flickerwisp might, for example), the creature card will return to the battlefield as a new object with no relation to its previous existence. The unearth effect will no longer apply to it.
So, if I am not missunderstanding it, in both cases your revived slivers stay in the battlefield: In case of Teferi's Protection, triggers of "at the beginning of the next end step" misses target cause your slivers are phased out; in case of Ghostway is the same example case of Oblivion Ring or Flickerwisp. I think I saw Animatou decks using this already.
As I said some weeks ago, you can naturally get this effect of perma-unearth with 50% chance with Frenetic sliver.
Quote from gvazdaus »What is everyone’s thought on Sliver Queen with Lavabelly Sliver and Basal Sliver? Probably won’t make many friends but seems like a strong win condition. Would this be easier to assemble with reanimation themes or using Sneak and Show tactics?[/card]?
Quote from gvazdaus »Also, if you unearth with Dregscape Sliver how does that interact if you follow up with Teferi’s Protection or Ghostway?
