I love this card. It's one of those cards that turn your sliver deck untouchable. However I like to keep this card as a sideboard because I prefer using Magma Sliver instead. However I switch between Magma sliver and Crystalline depending on how the opponent plays.

Needless to say an awesome card and a must have for any sliver deck.

"Bred as living shields, these slivers have proven unruly—they know they cannot be caught." Trollface sliver.

@artemis3120 - To answer your questions:

Overlord - First ability doesn't target, so you can still search them out (even if it did, you would still be able to find them, since they don't have shroud in your library); second ability targets, so it wouldn't work.

Homing Sliver - You can still slivercycle, since they don't have shroud anywhere else except in play. Since your hand isn't in play, you're golden.

Sliver in graveyard - As above...if it's not on the battlefield, it doesn't have shroud (stuff like this doesn't affect cards that aren't in play unless they state otherwise...look at Mycosynth Lattice). You can reanimate any slivers in your graveyard with no problems.

Hands down, the best sliver available. This should be your first, second, third and seventh choice for a sliver deck. Basically turns a sliver deck untouchable.

The current Oracle wording ("All slivers gain shroud.") interacts differently than the original wording with cards such as Humble.

Slivers can't be the Target of spells and abilities. The card doesn't target a specific sliver, but all Slivers at once. Saying that the group can't be targeted would create a paradox. It's an amusing concept though.

Does this negate the ability of Crypt Sliver?
Yes it does. Crypt Sliver ability says "Tap: Regenerate target sliver", and with the Crystalline Sliver out, you can no longer target slivers with spells or abilities.

Does this apply to Sliver spells as well as Sliver permanents in play?
If you are asking if slivers spells can still be countered with the Crystalline Sliver in play, then the answer is yes, they can still be countered. If you want counter defense with slivers, use the Root Sliver.

Sliver abilities generally don't target other slivers. They're continuous abilities, not activatable abilities.

This is the most annoying sliver ever.

If all slivers had shroud, wouldn't that in turn cancel their ability to have that ability since they are being targeted by another Sliver?
