Quote from Malachite_Osprey »With the new Slivers coming out, I decided to finally join the Hive by buying my cousin's Sliver Overlord deck that they built ~5-6 years ago, but didn't play or update since M15. I've loved the concept of Slivers since I started playing back in 2010, so I'm excited to finally be playing them.
However, I'm not really sure on what direction to take the deck yet in regards to what Slivers get to make the cut. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the Queen or Sliver Legion. I wasn't really planning on a combo focus, so not having Queen isn't the worst, but not having Legion makes me worried about how I'll be able to close out games. Do you think that since I don't have Legion I should have a higher density of static P/T raising Slivers? Or maybe I should focus more on the toolbox aspect of the deck rather than the size of my Slivers?
Also, not sure if these have been suggested yet, but I didn't see them in the useful cards section: Creeping Renaissance and Faith's Reward for recovering from board wipes.

Anyway, we got urza! Seems...fine? Good value? Not amazing imo, although there's probably some combo I can't see.

This deck seems tailor-made for a Training Grounds. Didn't see any discussion of it in your thread, but it does serious work for me in Scarab God.
Lastly, a friend of mine used to have a Roon deck and he mentioned that one of his most underrated cards was Loxodon Warhammer. He said that it solved a lot of specific problems and shored up a lot of weaknesses. Might be something to try out.

I can see what you are saying and many seems ro agree, so it matters little what I think, but if we restrict discussion about a deck to ones that have played with that commander before (which is basically required in order to discuss matchups or most things beyond cards - heck even cards get somewhat annoying when you have to search through the thread for discussions on the cards), we do risk killing the thread - only one so far has seemingly played Roon for instance and the value of the thread would decrease a lot if only one or two posted per deck.
