It works well with anything. Silver has a low anodic index like copper and nickel meaning the risk of galvanic corrosion is low. The only time you need to work is when mixing any of these metals [copper, nickel, silver] with aluminum in the same loop.

Admittedly this is a quibble but just to clarify–the pace of corrosion is a function of the difference in anodic index between two metals and has nothing to do with how high or low it is for the individual materials.

Yeah, I worded it wrong. I know it is calculated using the difference in anodic index between metals but seeing that silver, nickel and copper all have values that are within 0.20V of each other the risk of corrosion is low.
