MTG: Top 20 Slivers
Taking a look at the best slivers ever printed.
Slivers are one of the most powerful creature types in MTG. They appeared in the Rath Cycle and have been around since. They only appear in certain blocks here and there, but when they do it’s insane. Slivers build off of one another and form an unstoppable force.
Honorable Mentions: Plague Sliver & Lymph Sliver
Plauge Sliver gets a special mention because it’s a good card outside of a sliver deck and an awesome sliver to use against a sliver deck! It’s the anti-sliver. Lymph Sliver gets an honorable mention because it is the only card to ever be printed with the absorb ability. I hope they bring it back one day, because it seems like an interesting ability. Now to the real list!
#20 Crystalline Sliver
An amazing card for it’s casting cost. Cards like Magma Sliver will be useless if you play this card, so it comes in a little low on the list. However, this prevents your slivers from being killed off by Terror or Shock.
#19 Psionic Sliver
A sliver for the end of the game, this card can kill off your slivers if you aren’t careful. However, if you have six or more slivers in play, you’ll probably be able to take your opponent’s life down to zero. This is an end of the game card (or a card to play after you have more than two Mucle Slivers in play).
#18 Winged Sliver
Why is this card lower on the list? Well, because sometimes flying hurts more than helps. I have lost two or three games because of this card. Certain cards deal X damage to creatures with flying or things like that. This card should be in your deck, but don’t play it without tact.
#17 Two-Headed Sliver
This card is Goblin War Drums. There are slivers that do a better job of making your slivers difficult to block, but this is the cheapest one. A good play early in the game.
