Nov 16, 2017Any ideas with Unclaimed Territory for 5 color allies.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
It looks like to have the same problems. We can get tall very quickly, but without disruption on creatures, it won't work or work just as well as current ally lists against combo decks.
Nov 5, 2017Unclaimed Territory turns into the Non-Sedge Sliver version. It is called Fast Slivers and runs a number of 1-2 drop slivers to aggro out the enemy. There are examples above and Timba is the resident expert on Fast Slivers.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Nov 1, 2017Apparently SGC Cincinniti had Adam Bowman on winning against Burn.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Sadly, it looks like he only had 15 points on the day. However, I think I saw a Telekinetic Sliver in his main deck and his sideboard is different.
Oct 26, 2017I acknowledge that Fast Slivers are probably better in this environment see Simic Merfolk.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
The issue with fast slivers is something that Simic Merfolk can do, but fast Slivers can't. It is card selection/advantage. It is the reason why I find the Fast Sliver list both tantalizing and frustrating. It can kinda work in legacy and pauper because the formats are different. Legacy works because of crystalline and there isn't a ton of creatures being played as their are in modern as well as less removal over all. Slivers can get larger in pauper and there is less power over all so a syngerstic deck can win. Notice though that Slivers are fringe in both of these formats.
With the amount of removal and relatively lack of good protection cards for slivers (mutagenic growth is weaker now that fatal push is in the format and lightning bolt is mostly gone). Apostle's Blessing might be an answer, but it still has major issues. It is why I was theorycrafting with Smuggler's Copters in my earlier list to provide at least some card selection if not advantage to provide the right slivers in the right time.
Also his list is old as he himself admitted that it was mostly done before hte current metagame and before fatal push.
Despite my concerns, I am planning on testing it as soon as I get some of the cards or money online to testing. I got the standard bug for Dinosaurs, so I haven't been playing as many FNMs for modern and I take a different deck to the occasional modern tournament. I do play Slivers on line, but I haven't entered a tournament as the learning curve on MTGO is slow for me. Modern Slivers I am taking way too much time playing and leave many a game lost due to time out. Fast Slivers could solve this, but I need to buy the missing cards and find a build that I like which will mostly likely include Aether Vial which isn't in his list to 1, not die to blood moon and 2 to get down faster as well as tricks
Oct 24, 2017You are siding out Blur alot. I might keep it for matches we need to race as Blur provides those advantages. Any combo deck, blur is going to be pretty good. I might side out other utility slivers depending on the matchup. Diffusion/Sentinel/Darkheart/Galerider depending on the matchup. I just highly prize haste from slivers since it helps our explosive starts and turn 4 wins.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Oct 23, 2017I went to a small PPTQ where I succeed in getting in getting to the top 8.Posted in: Deck Creation (Standard)
my list is
I faced a BR Pirate deck (won 2-0), a Temur Energy deck (0-2), a GR energy deck (2-1), a Sultai Energy/Scarab God/Hostage taker deck (2-1). I will write something more detailed tomorrow. I lost in the Quarters to the same Temur Energy opponent (1-2).
Oct 19, 2017The Lifecrafter's Bestiary is mostly for the scry. It is also mostly for Jeskai, U/W Control, and other grindy control games like Lantern Control who have Path to Exile (I know lantern doesn't). It is admitted lower value against Jund where I probably wouldn't bring it in and should preferably have Hivelord in 1 of its places.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Oct 18, 2017I might need to try fast slivering.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
I am looking at the new Simic Merfolk and it plays a lot like how Fast Slivers would. The issue for slivers is that we don't have the 12 cantrip spells that Simic Merfolk has to stay relevant past the first few turns, nor the countermagic or possibility for grindier stuff.
I am not sure about this. Maybe Smuggler's Copter instead of Vial and 2 more creatures like Frenetic Sliver or Darkheart Sliver.
Oct 18, 2017The G/U Merfolk lists remind me of what Slivers would be without CoCo and included Unclaimed Territory. Aggro all the time with some nice cantrips and card selection. It seems pretty good and I like the sideboard counter board and perhaps Lead/CoCo in the side.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
It is probably pretty good in this meta.

My decks tended to play 3x Nykthos, at least one Joraga Warcaller, as well as Genesis Wave; but he does talk about taking advantage of Nykthos within his article so I thought it was worth discussing.
I think there is one missing card in the main deck. A flex position, I play Growing Rites, most people play Visionary, Scooze, or E-wit
Oct 17, 2017Looks like he is just relying on being faster or more resilant than burn ie. forcing burn to react to him than the other way around.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
