Sliver me timbers

~
Hey all,
we wanted to yatter about the new Premium Deck Series: Slivers Magic the Gathering product expected out late next month. We realise that you may have already known about this since lated July, but hey - better late than never.


Anywhoos - some background first. There are 76 or so Slivers which have been printed to date. These are creatures that share a hive mind, which most often allows them to share their abilities with other slivers on the battlefield.


Physically, Slivers are depicted with an armored vertebrate body, a long, bifurcated whip-like tail, one arm with a single talon for a hand, and a head with an armored crest. Variations on this appearance exist in accordance with the abilities each has to offer to the hive.


There are currently 12 white slivers, 11 blue slivers, 11 black slivers, 11 red slivers, 11 green slivers, 2 artifact slivers, and 18 multicolored slivers.
