How would you not play four Thorncasters? In a dedicated Sliver deck it seems better than Hellrider, right? Well, it needs another guy to get Haste, but it really doesn't even need to attack himself. Again, it shows that none of the choices have been tested and everything is just done on gut feeling... Seems bad.
What do you think of sideboarding Syphon Sliver? Like Galerider, it would rely on Cavern and Manaweft to be played, but the lifelink could be a game changer against fast burn decks.
I don't see any other way to get to 6 slivers by the end of turn 3 (Galerider Sliver aside), but I could be being stupid.
Turn 3: Land (access to 5 mana now--3 land and 2 slivers), (+2 slivers; 6 slivers total)I don't see any other way to get to 6 slivers by the end of turn 3 (Galerider Sliver aside), but I could be being stupid.
Thorncaster Sliver's ability stacks, right? That seems pretty good. You can do it to planeswalkers and you don't even have to worry about combat and your stuff gets through unblocked
