Sliver Swarm is a deck for anyone who has ever loved Slivers, obviously. The creature type is one of the most popular to build around, with each often buffing others on the battlefield and beyond. It’s one of the strongest creature types to build an entire deck around due to their absurd synergy. This deck is also one that’s not afraid to sit back and build its hive, ready to garner strength for devastating attacks.

If you’re wondering what the deck actually comes with and how best to utilize it, worry not. Here’s the typal MTG Commander Masters Sliver precon deck that will fulfill all your slithering desires.

MTG Commander Masters Sliver strategy

Rukarumel, Biologist In Magic the Gathering

Sliver Swarm is not a terribly complex deck to get the hang of, and it’s a great starting point if you’re still getting used to Commander. If you’ve played a typal deck, you know what you are in store for here.

Your objective is to play a lot of Sliver cards, filling your board with creatures that all buff one another with powerful abilities.

If you even get a handful of the many, many Slivers in this deck, you’ll become very dangerous, as all of them become more powerful and laden with different keywords. This is why you will want to race out as many as possible.

One of the benefits, though potentially the biggest drawbacks here, is that Sliver Gravemother is a five-color commander, meaning you have access to a lot of spells, but also, you may have some trouble getting the mana base sorted out. The deck comes with a lot of slower lands so it might take some time to get them all together.

However, if you can overcome this and have access to the mana base you need, and remain relatively stable, you can dish out immense pain. You can also build up to enormous attacks across the table with the Sliver Gravemother ability, which we will get into below.

MTG Commander Masters Sliver Commander 

Sliver Gravemother

Sliver Gravemother

Sliver Gravemother is a pretty gnarly commander for this Sliver typal deck. This card makes sure that each of your slivers, of which there are many in this deck, will return for one more scare to each player, even after being killed.

Her abilities read: “The “legend rule” doesn’t apply to Slivers you control.

Each Sliver creature card in your graveyard has Encore X, where X is its mana value.

Encore 5 (, Exile this card from your graveyard: For each opponent, create a token copy that attacks that opponent this turn if able. They gain haste. Sacrifice them at the beginning of the next end step. Activate only as a sorcery.)

This essentially means you can pay the cost of a Sliver in your graveyard to get three tokens of that Sliver attacking each of your opponents that turn. If you have access to a lot of mana, you can have really explosive turns with lots of Slivers going out against every opponent at the table. This is a lot of trouble for everyone to deal with, and you’ll undoubtedly cause some havoc with her.
