Creature — Sliver
Whenever a Sliver deals combat damage to a player, its controller may put a 1/1 colorless Sliver creature token into play.
Brood Sliver Discussion

Hey Nephs, just finally got a look at both First Sliver's Chosen and Lancer Sliver. You were spot on with Lancer's ability, but what piqued my interest was Chosen. Exalted among Slivers? With the right build that sounds like it could definitely get out of hand. I'd imagine Brood Sliver and maybe Hive Stirrings could be part of the strategy to quickly increase the amount of Exalted instances on the board. I haven't heard anything about what will be full art though. Do you have a link?
Slayroth, interesting card Carpet of Flowers . I have honestly never heard of it before...but to use it in EDH seems risky - because you have no idea what decks your opponents are bringing to the table. Blue is a popular color though, so there will be at least one player there packing some form of Blue control. I'd recommend combining Carpet of Flowers with something like Stormtide Leviathan or Quicksilver Fountain to really take advantage of it. I think Carpet of Flowers probably belongs in a deck that has Islandwalk and all matters Island as part of it's central theme. There's not enough room in something that is Sliver focused.

Many thanks for your comment. I love the Sliver tokens. So much so that I now play Brood Sliver every chance I get. I've only got one copy of Teferi's Protection and it's in my Dino deck. I'll give it a try in this deck at some point. Good suggestion though. Thanks again for commenting!

My advice is to stick with a White and Green deck, you have the base slivers there like Sinew Sliver, Muscle Sliver, Brood Sliver, Horned Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver, Gemhide Sliver, Ward Sliver, Might Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, Essence Sliver and Sidewinder Sliver there, plus some more but these are the greatest ones for me. With them you can splash more colors to use Crystalline Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Sliver Queen, Sliver Legion, Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hivelord, which are the ones with most value in my opinion outside Selesnya colors, although there are some good ones too in Blue and Red. Metallic Sliver is a good and cheap body but with no abilities of its own. Also get non-creatures spells that allow you to draw, tutor or fix your hand/deck for more creatures, as well as things to protect said creatures from boardwipes and individual kill spells. Check my sliver deck to get a more accurate idea of what I'm saying please Merciless Aliens

Great choice for your sliver commander! I know people like to use Hivelord for the indestructibility (but with exiling removal becoming more prominent its not as good as it seems) or Overlord for tutoring the same combos. Despite that I feel that the Queen is the strongest because she allows you to build your board without overextending.
Personally I feel that you should cut out all non-sliver creatures unless they provide something really unique to the game plan. I mean, Qasali Pridemage can be replaced with Harmonic Sliver. You can cut out your ramp creatures for land-based ramp since you are in green. Slivers are already susceptible to board wipes. Why exacerbate that with so many mana dorks?
You are also missing some MVP slivers. Venom Sliver and Toxin Sliver, Brood Sliver. Hibernation Sliver lets you protect choice slivers from wraths (including your commander!) I would actually use anthems to pump up your slivers, this way you can keep precious card slots for useful abilities. You don't need to waste slots on weenies cause your commander conjures them out of thin air.
The PWs may add an alternate route to victory but imo they don't really synergize with the sliver plan. Psionic Sliver can let your slivers one-shot a player. Thorncaster Sliver does something similar on attack. Leeching Sliver as well. If you add in the haste slivers, you can put in Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding as a powerful plan B.

Also, some important cards for your five color deck would be some five color lands like Unclaimed Territory/Cavern of Souls or Gemstone Mine/Tendo Ice Bridge/Aether Hub. That way you dont have to dilute your deck with Chromatic Lantern or Gift of Paradise and you can just run more creatures or all 4 Collected Company

Brood Sliver I would recommend removing because it is too slow for aggro. Dementia Sliver This card is a little more toward late game and if your aggro it wouldn't be the best include. Frenetic Sliver Can possibly removed if you feel like it, but can be kept in just for some fun. That was just a few things I saw I didn't have much time looking through all the cards.

Thanks for the feedback, multimedia! In fact, I had already made a couple of inclusions in the deck but forgot to update it prior to deckcycling it. The edits have now been made, and yes, I included Cryptolith Rite and also added Horned Sliver, having taken out a few other slivers. I will consider expanding lands too; despite having good ramp, I do often find myself stuck with 5-7 lands most of the game.
Another thing I want to maintain is a fully permanents deck, with Primal Surge being the only non-permanent, meaning guaranteed a complete deck vomit wincon. But yeah, I wish I had boardwipes. haha
Root Sliver and Brood Sliver used to be in the deck but got sided since they rarely proved relevant, the former mostly because my group relies more on wiping than counters, but yes, I was considering putting it back in.
I will also throw in the Tri lands instead of the vivids and playtest a bit. Thanks to the number of any-color lands, rocks, and mana fixing with Manaweft, Gemhide, and Cryptolith, I use a vivid counter about 40% of games, and both in a single land about 5%. Ultimately, shock/fetch/fix lands are better, yes, but I'm hesitant about dropping $10 per land. lol
Again, thank you very much for your feedback! If you have any followup comments, feel free to drop them!
