Why Rhystic Tutor ? Diabolic Tutor or Increasing Ambition gets you the card for sure and it is very cheap. I would pay the to counter your search all day, I really can't imagine someone not paying it, so the or less mana that Rhystic cost doesn't really worth it.

I have yet another completely different way to build this deck. This is my sixth time typing this comment, because my damn internet keeps cutting out. I'm starting to get very irritated. That being said, I'm gonna try and be brief about this.
It's gravestorm. Get as many deathtriggers as you can in one turn.
You could also run a few infinite combos if you want:
There's a deck that does exactly what I'm talking about, and it does it very well. It's cEDH, and you're probably not looking for that, but it is a good way to see what I mean if you don't already. Garna The Broflame
I hope I've adequately served my Queen!

If you're wanting to play combo slivers, you should look into outlet cards like Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist who form a combo with your commander and Basal Sliver, Ashnod's Altar or Mana Echoes (which you should add). Cutthraot and artist don't work with Mana Echoes however are still good enough to run. The other slivers you should look ata running are Dormant Sliver and Necrotic Sliver.
You don't need Darkheart Sliver, Ghostflame Sliver, Fungus Sliver or Mistform Sliver. They don't do enough to wanrrant a slot. You should however look at including Nature's Lore, Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman (assuming you have fetches) and Noble Hierarch (depending on budget).

gvazdaus, typically my wins look like a Heart Sliver + Basal Sliver + Gemhide Sliver/Manaweft Sliver + Sliver Queen infinite mana combo. My meta is Control Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign, Voltron Sram, Senior Edificer, and Goodstuff/Synergy Reki, the History of Kamigawa. The worst of it is that politically, my deck is very weak. My playgroup tends to go for me first, and it quickly becomes a game of Archenemy. Typically the best thing I can do is play a bunch of Slivers and attempt to combo out when the table least expects it. Usually it works a lot better than i'd expect until the Yennett player gets a CounterScepter online, then i'd just be hurtin.
Rarely do I ever swing wide though. In case you were wondering.

OP_Sigma I love the list. Great manabase, I have hardly any criticisms there. I do have one question though: why the inclusion of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth? It's not like you're hurting for . I'd probably sub in something that produces , as you're going more control you'll want more access to that mana. Compared to my list you also chose to go a little lean on Slivers, removing Essence Sliver, Dormant Sliver, Homing Sliver and Basal Sliver. From these omissions it looks like you're going for a more aggressive strategy - potentially playing your commander a little sooner to get in that damage. I always think that Dormant Sliver is a great inclusion, but maybe Synapse Sliver would be more your speed?
This is an excellent build. I look forward to seeing what additional tweaks and adjustments you'll make going forward. +1 from me! I can honestly say that The Queen approves

If you're prepared to threaten a combo there are decks built around Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Basal Sliver with Skeletal Changeling. You could do the same with a hivestone and a Bloodcrazed Paladin for an arbitrarily large creature.
You could even drop an Ashes of the Fallen on knight so your slivers themselves are recastable as an alternative combo tool.
