Very Fun Card. My multiplayer Heartstone deck includes Ant Queen, Feral Hydra, Obsidian Fireheart, Kumano, Master Yamabushi, and Lord of Shatterskull Pass.
However, the star is Soulbright Flamekin. 5 mana to play him and get 8 red mana.
Besides slivers, spikes, and level-up cards, there are the mongers, hateflayer, inner-flame igniter and two-headed dragon.

Going infinite turn 4 is fun, even if it is unstable:
Pili Pala with a Hermetic Study on it, plus this.
Tap it, deal 1 damage, pay the mana for the Pili Pala's ability to untap it and get a mana. Now tap it, deal 1 damage, and use the mana you just got to untap. Now tap it, deal 1 damage... Because few things are as funny as the look on the other player's faces when your bizarre blue deck wins on turn 4 by putting 4 quadrillion instances of damage on the stack.

Check out Rise of the Eldrazi's Training Grounds... takes this ability up a notch or two and for less mana. Pretty much always the better choice if you want this effect and can play blue.

Mana Echoes is an easier way to get unlimited Slivers using the Queen. That plus that "{2}, Sac: Deals 2 damage" Sliver is pratically an "I Win".

@kitsunewarlock: Heartstone doesn't reduce cycling costs. It only affects creatures, not creature cards. Cycling is an ability that creature cards use while in your hand; they aren't permanents yet.

Training Grounds is all creatures you control, not just a single one like you're trying to say.

@Pigfish99 and everyone else who doesn't bother reading the card.
This effect can't reduce the amount of mana an ability costs to less than 1.

Read the text before making comments people!

This and/or Training Grounds is the cornerstone to a pretty easy 3 card infinite mana combo with Grim Monolith or Basalt Monolith and any artifact animation (I run with Karn, Silver Golem if you don't have the funds for Power Artifact). That said, being an artifact, this powers my Tolarian Academy while Training Grounds does not.

sliver queen+heartstone+basal sliver=infinite slivers and black mana. Throw in coat of arms for infinite power and toughness to go along with you infinite slivers.

@dmaher: No, while Heartstone does say "creatures" it's implicit that it's creature permanents it affects. Otherwise it would include the words "creature cards".
Creature cards are creatures that haven't yet become permanents (entered the battlefield).
