It’s no secret that the new Slivers are mechanically inspired by the old Slivers, that’s an obvious connection. But just how much better are the New compared to the Old?
Striking Sliver vs. Talon Sliver - Obviously Striking Sliver wins on this one. It’s the exact same in every way except it’s red and costs 1 less mana, and only affects your Slivers.
Bonescythe Sliver vs. Fury Sliver - New Slivers win again with Bonescythe. Yes it has 1 less power, but it also costs 2 less mana. it also only affects your Slivers.
Battle Sliver vs. Bonesplitter Sliver - If there was no difference between New and Old Slivers, then I would call it a tie. But Battle Sliver wins this one for being on the same CMC to P/T ratio, but only affecting your Slivers.
Megantic Sliver vs. Might Sliver - This is no contest. Megantic Sliver is an easier to cast Collective Blessing on a 6/6 body for 6 mana. It’s damn good.
Groundshaker Sliver vs. Horned Sliver - The only Old Sliver on this list to win, Horned Sliver is damned awesome, giving all Slivers trample for only 3 mana is great.
So all in all, New Slivers are indeed better than Old Slivers, that’s just the way it is.
PS: Yes I know there are other New Slivers, but they’re either insignificant or have no real competition.
This is what I dont get. They made these new slivers EVEN MORE powerful than they were before, and they’re gonna release them in a core set. And I read somewhere they they redesigned them just because they were too powerful. SO this makes no sense. Also they barely even look like slivers now. Hell, Megantic Sliver is straight up treefolk.
What you read was bullshit. They redesigned them because they had to. in the NWO, creature lords only benefit things you control. Slivers were never too powerful, they just created stupidly complex board states. These Slivers are a lot more simple, as you only need to track yours.
The idea behind the art redesign was that they have totally exhausted what they could do with scythe-arm-worm-tail and wanted something new. All their designs still retain something from the old Slivers though, such as one arm being bigger or sharper than the rest, or having tendrils coming from their head or back.
The explanation is that they have evolved more since the last time we saw them, it’s only been about 100 years since we last them, but that was in Time Spirale. If we’re going back to the last time we REALLY saw Slivers, it was more like a couple thousand years. Given that Slivers evolve quickly, it makes sense story wise.
And that’s all I have to say about Slivers.
