Creature — Sliver
Sliver creatures you control have haste.
Blur Sliver Discussion
2 months ago
Also, I almost forgot. It's necessary to INCLUDE Blur Sliver to increase the consistency of hasty surprise kills and it's crucial to REMOVE Harmonic Sliver . It's ability is a MUST, so unless you're facing a full artifact based deck, Harmonic Sliver will work to destroy your own enchantments/ artifacts and shut off this deck's acceleration. However, this is a sure include in the sideboard.

Another round of changes while working in new cards.
Making my existing commander better while taking out some marginal things.

A bit janky but this is funny...
You tap Emmara, because she’s a sliver, for , this creates a sliver token with haste, you use the she created to Untap her and repeat.
Infinite slivers tokens with life link, that all have haste and can all tap for

Those are all solid suggestions Doombeard1984, cheers. I'm planning on cutting Blur Sliver , Dormant Sliver & Winged Sliver to make room for 3 of the new ones (Cloudshredder, Lavabelly + The First). That means 1 less draw option for me so Rhystic Study + Vanquisher's Banner are both appealing, even if The First Sliver is pseudo-draw.
You're right, Intruder Alarm would be killer in here for the reasons you've mentioned and I have a copy I could test out. Yawg-win is an incredible card but I only have 1 copy and it's never leaving my Zombie deck. I'll slot it in here just to try it out for funsies and if it performs I may invest in another copy.

So many replies, so many thoughts! The spoilers have been late have got me so excited! Let me respond to one thing at a time:
Odysseus_97, Honestly, Morophon, the Boundless doesn't appeal to me on an aesthetic level. The art is rather "meh", but it's "Spells of the chosen type you cast cost less to cast. This effect reduces only the amount of coloured mana you pay." does have my attention. A cmc of does leave this card strictly in the mid-late game bomb territory. I'm going to be honest, I haven't come to a conclusion on what to do with this. But it's...interesting.
_Delta_, I heard about the new slivers from my playgroup and knew that Lavabelly Sliver was an auto include. Why? Simple: It's a new Sliver Queen game ending combo: Sliver Queen + Basal Sliver + Lavabelly Sliver - with all three on the battlefield, all that's required is to activate Sliver Queen 's ability to generate a Sliver Token. That token will have Lavabelly Sliver 's ETB effect - draining 1 point of damage from any target. Sacrifice that token for , to generate...yes you guessed it another Sliver creature token. It's simply rinse, wash, repeat - until all non-slivers (or rival hives) are dead. Now, what do I cut? I think it has to be Blur Sliver or Winged Sliver . The verdict is still out. Blur Sliver has more functionality while Winged offers evasion. I'll experiment between the two. Dregscape Sliver and Tempered Sliver also crossed my radar as well. I feel like Hibernation Sliver does the job of protecting slivers on the battlefield a bit better than Dregscape Sliver . Tempered Sliver belongs in more aggro based decks, but it is a very nice sliver. Now, onto the 800 lbs. elephant in the room - The First Sliver . I have to have it. I haven't figured out exactly what to do with it...but I have to have it. But what to cut? I'm still thinking on that.
DGenerationX61, I've got two words for ya! I jest. WWF was pretty awesome. But back to the topic at had - I have my hand on F5 refreshing like crazy. I can't wait to see what else Wizards has in store. I was so desperate for new Slivers I started making up my own - you can see my "dream sliver" posted in the comments somewhere lol. I can't wait to tweak this deck with new Slivers.

Non-Linear I wanted Aura Shards in the deck as opposed to Harmonic Sliver because I run 14 artifacts and enchantments in the deck and Harmonic Sliver would force me to blow up my utility artifacts and enchantments too, where as Aura Shards lets me only blow up my opponents. I see what you were saying about Heartstone but I prefer Training Grounds because it only costs one mana instead of three and it reduces the cost of every sliver's ability to one instead of two. I think Crypt Sliver vs Clot Sliver is more personal preference, I thought an early game Crypt Sliver might not be as effective because if you only have a few slivers out and they have summoning sickness than it wouldn't do much good. I think there's a good argument for Heart Sliver instead of Blur Sliver but I think Blur works better for the deck because if my oppoents have a sliver deck then Heart Sliver could help them, where as Blur Sliver only helps me.
In regards to adding more infinite combos, I try to stay away from them for the most part because I enjoy playing the game, not just winning the game. My original plans for the deck had Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm in it but I just wasn't feeling it. I wanted to keep cards that I enjoyed playing and have never played before.
Some of the expensive cards I have in the deck are because they are helpful and provide value, such as The Immortal Sun and Volrath's Stronghold . Some of them are in the deck because I have never played them before and I think they could be good in the deck and fun to play, like Karn Liberated . I completely understand finding cheaper alternate cards but I want this to be my subjectively strongest EDH deck + one of my favs to play.
Thx for the feedback though, and I may consider building an infinite combo Sliver Overlord deck with some of the cards you mentioned.

Alright, I love slivers and this was my first EDH deck. You have nice and expensive cards some of which are redundant. Harmonic Sliver = Aura Shards but better, Training Grounds is a bit redundant because the cost for the queen is only reduced to 1 and Heartstone will give you the same effect. Some of your slivers seem to only be in the deck because it is TRIBAL. This is the biggest mistake for cEDH you need to branch out and pull value from non-slivers. Crypt Sliver is better than Clot Sliver and Heart Sliver is cheaper than Blur Sliver .
If you already own these cards great, if not find cheaper alternatives. Not to be a prude but it seems you just have some expensive cards because you can and not because it is helpful...
