How to survive a wrath of god?

I just recently bought 4 of the card Cauldron Haze for use in my sliver deck in order to survive a Wrath of God. I rather like the concept of my opponent killing off his own creatures while mine live. However, I was wondering if there were any better alternatives for surviving a board sweep. Preferably a card with low converted mana cost like Cauldron Haze.
My Sliver and Thallid decks both use blue to stop board wipes. It's called counter-magic, it works.

Nothing beats Quash to say to your opponent, "Where's your God now?"
For a Sliver deck, consider Hibernation Sliver, Frenetic Sliver and/or Pulmonic Sliver to survive enemy Wraths.  If you want to be cool and wrath the board yourself while sparing your slivers, Ghostflame Sliver + All is Dust is fun.

Of course, you could use the spells that everyone is suggesting, but I prefer to solve problems in a Sliver deck with "Moar Slivers"

Or, of course, as is usually the case in my playgroup...
1) Acidic Sliver.
2) Nine other slivers.
3) Heartstone.
4) floating.
5) An itchy mana-tapping finger.

That usually stops board wipes for sliver players...

Fecundity helps you recover from board wipes in a fast manner.

Still, countermagic is most efficient.

I guess with Slivers, you could run Necrotic Sliver, then kill your opponent's land as a parting shot.
