This evolves from Winged Sliver when exposed to a Power Creep Stone.

I don't get what people are freaking out about, a 1/1 flyer for 1 is perfectly OH GOD IT'S A SLIVER.

Winged Sliver is currently rated around 4.5/5. This is strickly better and nearly a full star lower. People really don't like the new "slivers you control" slivers.

So combining all the rares and the most vanilla Sliver in the set (Sliver Construct), you have a doublestriking, flying, lifelinking, pinging 5/5. At worst, with only commons, you have a 3/3 with first strike, vigilance, haste, and trample. Damn.

This is an extraordinary 1 drop for any sliver deck! But even in any other deck, an evasive 1/1 is always nice on your first turn. Thus far, Jace's Phantasm, Judge's Familiar, Lantern Kami, Flying Men, Scryb Sprites, Suntail Hawk, and Zephyr Sprite are the only other creatures with no drawbacks that are unconditional 1/1 flyers for 1 mana. While one could argue that Striking Sliver is just as good first turn, Galerider Sliver will usually skip the opponent's choice of whether or not to block and go straight for the throat. While is does outdo Winged Sliver in pretty much every way, it will still have a place in singleton and EDH decks, as well as purest fans of the original sliver look.

Congratulations, James Zapata, on your second card art for M:tG and M14! The asymmetry of this one is well ... (see all)

One of the biggest Magic purchases I ever made was sets of Flying Men back when they got timeshifted. 1 drop fliers with no drawback basically didn't exist for blue, and when your rarities are special and Arabian Nights... And then we get this.

As for the Sliver itself...my only question is why? Winged Sliver was rarely an early drop Sliver, usually a finisher. The only reason to play a turn 1 Galerider is to bait a Doom Blade, and there's better Slivers for the task.

I have a friend who claims higher rarity does not equal more powerful cards. This should shut him up.
Strictly better than winged sliver, man, that feels so wrong.

Playing M14 slivers gets you automatically disqualified. I think it's in the rules somewhere. Stupid names. Dumb art. Recycled abilities. Slivers are done. You don't have to make any more unless you think they need one of the new keyword abilities, for some reason. (They don't.) Core sets suck. 0.5/5

Someone explain to me how this can cost only one mana, but anyone else has to pay four for a group flying effect?
