I dunno about this guy.  I guess he could be okay, and probably required in a Sliver deck, but I don't think he's all that.  I like the idea of drawing a card more than adding a 1/1 to play.  Then again, maybe I'm on crack.  It's good, dont; get me wrong, but not awesome like I hear everyone else say.

In limited, why the hell not?  A 3/3 that gives 1/1 with repeated dome shots?  Nice. 

Constructed: 3.5
Limited: 4.5

Hmm... this is kind of like the Rith of the Sliver world.  Make your Slivers unblockable except by other Slivers (see Shifting Sliver), and you start makin' babies as long as you're not playing another Sliver deck. And you don't leave yourself vulnerable in an all out assault, because for each attacking Sliver, you will make a 1/1 (probably bigger) Sliver baby that can take the heat next turn from your opponent's army.

As far as Limited play, it could be decent if you get some good supporting Slivers. In constructed, this card is crazy good in the right Sliver deck.

Constructed: 4.5
Limited: 3

Judge Bill

An interesting sliver, to say the least. Gives you more slivers when you damage a player in combat. If you can swing the board your way, then it's all gravy. Would be cool in a sliver deck, although really sucky in the mirror. I see a lot of sliver decks using this.
In limited, I don't like slivers. Hopefully, this'll be the last time I have to type this, but the symmetry makes them crap in my opinion.
Constructed: 4
Limited: 1.5

Brood Sliver
he makes the cut in limited, particularly if for some reason you're playing
u/g and have the unblockable one,  but other than that,  he's a bit pricey.
constructed - 2.5
limited - 3


Brood Sliver

That is an awesome anility, in other formats you have
the Queen, who is hard to cast...and this guy is fun!
He usually wins games, if you cast him, In extended he
is too slow, in type 2 the rest of the slivers are
sub-par so, who knows, Limited, a 3/3 that makes 1/1s
who make other 1/1s lol, why not play it?



Brood Sliver – Expensive but huge, what a way to multiply your Sliver horde. Unfortunately I believe that this is a “win more” card. After all, if your Slivers are swinging for combat damage that means that they are getting through and you are already winning the game (probably).


Constructed – I expect most Sliver decks will have this guy but I’m not sure he will be key to any of the best builds. Best decks like cards that help them win not cards that let them win more – 3.90


Limited –  What other Slivers do you expect to get? May be worthwhile especially with a lot of Provoke creatures and extra Slivers. – 4.00 (very dependent on other draws)


Brood Sliver

Why do the Slivers have to be so expensive?!?!? Whatever happen to playing a Sliver deck that was aggressive and fast like a weenie deck but it was also able to grow in the late game? This Sliver has an amazing ability but a cost that will make you think about using him twice, then again if type II keeps getting cards like this one we'll be facing a really slow environment. I think this guy's too slow for the current environment and don't believe that Sliver decks will do too well, but if everything slows down then he could be ok. His ability is great because he can build you an army in a matter of seconds. If your Slivers can hit while this guy's in play it could just as well be game over for your opponent since all your Slivers will be multiplying per turn but I still think he's too slow. >< He might do well in limited tho and I would consider him as a first or second pick on a draft because he has a lot of potential. It just depends on the environment I guess. 0.o

Constructed 3

Limited 3.5

Scott Sager Brood Sliver is probably my favorite of the new batch of Slivers (not a hard category to win), green's rare Sliver has the potential to amass a huge army in a short period of time. Five mana for a 3/3 is still pretty steep, but a U/G Sliver deck with Birds of Paradise and Llanowar Elves could make it a bit easier to cast. A Sliver deck based around Brood, Synapse, Shifting, and Root Slivers looks to be the best way to try and abuse the new batch of Slivers.

Limited, well.....It's rare, a 3/3 for five mana without evasion. Nope, don't think so.

Constructed: 4

Limited: 1
