My Colors Are Green and Blue I value respect, honesty, acceptance, and trust. I love to tell stories and to experience new things. At my best, I am compassionate and creative. At my worst, I am detached and submissive. My enemies are Black and White.
I have every intention of making a Sliver Horde deck and it will be impossible :p
Oh snap, ultimate achievement.
Myr Horder FTW

One word: Samurai. I know I'm breaking all the conventions of the format since I'll have to make my own tokens and that makes me a terrible person blah blah blah but you have to admit fighting a horde of samurai would be AWESOME. Also a Horde horde deck playing all the hordes in magic. Don't worry, I'll figure out how.

Don't worry, I'll figure out how.An easy modification to the format to allow tribes that don't have printed tokens (or just to avoid having to round up lots of tokens) is to designate some subset of creatures (such as all common creatures or all creatures with CMC 3 or less) to count as the "tokens".

I'd be interested in Illusions or allies as the horde deck. Both have some flavor and totally different effects. Furthermore oozes seem interesting to me (although the best ooze in my opinion (Necrotic Ooze) can't be used). Mitotic Slime, Gutter Grime (although it isn't too good...)...
I don't post much anymore.
I love the idea of Elemental tokens, mainly because they're so diverse. My token stack has 4/4 white elementals, 4/4 green elementals, 1/1 red elementals, 3/1 red elementals, 5/5 red and blue elementals, and probably some I've forgotten. It'd make for an awesome and interesting horde, although their sizes are probably large enough that you'd want fewer than 50 tokens in the horde deck.
From Mark Rosewater's Tumblr: the0uroboros asked: How in the same set can we have a hexproof, unsacrificable(not a word) creature AND a land that makes it uncounterable. How does this lead to interactive play? I believe I’m able to play my creature and you have to deal with it is much more interactive than you counter my creature.
MaRo: One of the classic R&D stories happened during a Scars of Mirrodin draft. Erik Lauer was sitting to my right (meaning that he passed to me in the first and third packs). At the end of the draft, Erik was upset because I was in his colors (black-green). He said, "Didn't you see the signals? I went into black-green in pack one." I replied, "Didn't you see my signals? I started drafting infect six drafts ago."
MaRo: I redesigned him while the effect was on the stack.
Homarids! But seriously slivers would be next to impossible. 1 of each of the following: Sliver Legion Might Sliver Heart Sliver Horned Sliver Talon Sliver Winged Sliver Crystalline Sliver Spined Sliver Toxin Sliver Sidewinder Sliver Pulmonic Sliver Quick Sliver Two-Headed Sliver Bonesplitter Sliver Fury Sliver Spinneret Sliver Root Sliver Brood Sliver Venser's Sliver Metallic Sliver Opaline Sliver Ghostflame Sliver Harmonic Sliver Spitting Sliver Synchronous Sliver Battering Sliver Reflex Sliver Lymph Sliver Frenzy Sliver 2 of each of the following: Muscle Sliver Sinew Sliver Plated Sliver Blade Sliver Watcher Sliver Bone-Splitter Sliver And 60 1/1 Sliver Tokens I omitted any Sliver with an ability that you pay mana for, as that would get out of hand with the Horde's infinite mana. Also any abilities that targeted I left out (excluding Harmonic Sliver) to avoid having to much random rolling.
Another cool group with a token would be Minions, except that a TON of them require you to make choices, with activated abilities, echo and life paying ETB abilities. If there was a mind behind the deck it might work but in the current format it wouldn't work. Which is sad because flipping a bunch of 1/1 minion tokens and then slamming a Phage the Untouchable with haste would be joyful.
