Since apparently me playing with Slivers is bullshit and I have to be everybody’s first target.
"Oh, you’re playing Slivers? Everyone go after him first."
5 minutes later I’m out of the game and I get to sit around for an hour while I wait for everyone else to finish.
Sure, I’ve had a game where I killed one person with poison counters in one turn and the last two people with counters in the second turn.
Yes, I’ve had like 40+ Sliver tokens on the field thanks to Brood Sliver before.
Ok, I can make my slivers get +30/+30 or higher (and that’s without Sliver Legion, which I don’t have) but do I really have to be EVERYONE’S first target? My deck does nothing for about 10 turns depending on my draws and if I have Gemhide Sliver. Even if it does go off, one board sweep and my deck does nothing depending how many Slivers I’ve lost. /endrant.
My new one is a Skullbriar, the Walking Grave deck. It’s pretty obvious what it does. Put lots of counters on Skullbriar and win with commander damage. Pretty much everything in the deck adds counters to something, kills stuff, or reanimates it. True B/G style. My favorite cards in it are;
Skullbriar, the Walking Grave (He’s cheap to cast, has an amazing ability and in multi-player will almost always have counters added to him in the early game)
Worldspine Wurm - He’s (possibly?) the largest creature in Magic. He makes more guys when he dies. My deck likes the fact that he’s willing to die and has many ways to benefit from his death.
Jarad’s Orders - A tutor card in EDH, do I have to explain it?
Lumberknot - Most likely considered a bad card. Amazing in this deck.
Jarad, Golgar Lich Lord - In the late game, him with Skullbriar is a way to kill everyone very quickly.
Grave Betrayal - Fun stuff with this card.
Necropolis Regent - Also fun stuff with this card. Her + Skullbriar = win.
Jar of Eyeballs - Filtering. Always necessary.
Corpsejack Menace - Again, very obvious why he’s in.
Death’s Presence - See “Grave Betrayal” or “Worldspine Wurm”
I’ll be adding more stuff to it as time goes on. I have to play around with it and see what it needs and what it doesn’t need. And of course I have various Lhurgoyf creatures (except the og Lhurgoyf himself, but I know where to get one)
Once people start bitching about this deck I think I’m going to do a U/B Faerie/Specter deck using Oona as my general.
