RCotD #97

Random Card of the Day #97:

Opaline Sliver - 1WU
Creature - Sliver
All Slivers have "Whenever this permanent becomes the target of a spell an opponent controls, you may draw a card."

Initial thoughts:

I feel like I've been getting too many slivers on random as of recent. I've basically already said everything I wanted to say about slivers before, so I guess I'll say it again: I see slivers has a higher synergy elf deck, with more risk and more reward, as they can very quickly spiral out of control.

That said this sliver makes your slivers exactly what you want them to be. A kind of "damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don't kind of dealio. You still suffer from board wipes, especially those that don't target, but now you almost want your slivers to be Lightning Bolt'd. Or even better, Boomerang'd.

Some part of me wishes that it was worded like Livewire Lash so that you could abuse it with your own cards, but that obviously didn't make it out of card testing. It's still a really good sliver to drop after you're already set up--it's even pretty good on it's own. 4/5
