Love the primer! I have a Sliver deck but it's built more for the casual side than the cEDH side. That being said it does include the Mana Echoes combo lines and now that I have recently acquired an Emiel the Blessed (cost me a Cyclonic Rift foil but it's worth it), I plan on including it in the deck along with Dockside Extortionist. I've loved the thought of this combo since Emiel was spoiled and I realized it was a thing, this is the perfect deck for that combo since there's other uses of Emiel as well.

It may be a lot of work but a breakdown of every Sliver and it's usefulness versus non usefulness in the deck could be interesting to add. You do that to a certain degree in your inclusion/exclusion section but adding that could take this primer to the next level.

eta- Wow just looked, can't believe it's been over 5 months since I updated my list. The deck has changed quite a bit since then as I'm constantly tinkering with it with different packages to give it different feels.

eta2- what are your thoughts on Realmwalker for the deck? I'm a bit torn on it.

Hi WWolfe! And thanks!

I hope my primer could help slivers players in general, not only competitive ones. Emiel lines are really powerful since Sliver Overlord is a great infinite mana outlet.
Regarding the "all slivers" analysis, it's a huge effort, and at the moment I prefer interaction with the community. Which means, if someone asks for a sliver which is not included in the "exclusions" section, I'll answer that question and add it in the primer.

Realmwalker might be good, but I just feel it's not needed.
In general, if were into Emiel + Dockside, we don't need it, we just need our commander. If we're into Intruder Alarm + Haste Sliver + Dork Sliver, and we can start the loop, our commander is just enough, we don't need it.
Including Realmwalker feels like I have to cut something more relevant from the list.

Tell me what you think about it ;)

PS: I'm gonna add Realmwalker to the primer exclusions.

Yea, see that's where I am with it. It's one of those cards that looks like it would be good for the deck (and I probably will test play it at some point) but I just don't see it sticking. Like you I feel like I'd be cutting something that fits better to add it.

So I'm honestly considering Maskwood Nexus.

With that on the battlefield, Sliver Overlord can tutor for the combo on its own: First one will be Dockside Extortionist, so treasures can be used for tutoring or directly for the combo. Second one will be Emiel The Blessed.

What do you think?
