There are two sets of Gemhides now? How odd to me.
There's a difference! This set makes it only "slivers *YOU* control", that's.. I don't know what to make of that yet..

Very interesting card. Out of all the slivers in the set, this is the only one that could have granted its ability to sliver permanents, not just sliver creatures. But I can understand why WotC would stray away from such a concept, as the ability it grants has become one sided and simplified, as well. Gemhide Sliver's effect was a major asset to mostly any sliver deck, and this one will be no different. While some might believe this will completely obsolete Gemihide, I have a feeling the two will be used in tandem more often than not. Gemhide now has an evolved brother-from-another-mother to help in singleton and EDH.

As I've already said about Trevor Claxton's art in Bonescythe Sliver, I usually either love it or dislike it. This is an example of one that I absolutely love.

Okay, so I'm NOT a Vorthos, not in the way some are, at least. I enjoy the story, but I don't NEED it for this game.

However, all the hate these new slivers are getting is ridiculous. I admit, at first I was a little skeptical, but I didn't juts flat out say NO! like it seems quite a few people are. In fact, after I thought about it, it seemed to make sense.

I don't know a ton about slivers, but of what I know, they're supposed to be near perfect biological beings, able to adapt at a moments notice, or at least adapt the evolution of other slivers nearby. So, slivers adapting humanoid form isn't entirely unreasonable.

They're malleable beings, and taking on humanoid appearances could be an evolutionary step for them. After all, adapting the form of their enemies is a strategic advantage. After all, if humans can effectively fight slivers (at least without a queen or some such), why not take their form to fight more effectively? As well, psychology. If you take on a humanoid appea...

Strictly better than Gemhide Sliver thanks to the sliver changes for M14. I never thought I'd say that.
