In reference to the last paragraph of your description; why label the deck as a primer if you are not going to write a primer? Especially with some rather controversial choices. Primers are meant to teach people how to play an archetype and give a reasonably well tuned list. Below I have listed the major points that I have a problem with calling this list a primer.

I guess most of my problems stem from you labeling your deck as a primer. Outside of that, you have some good interactions and a nice looking deck. I would suggest you at least consider all of the cards I listed off if you were unaware of them before.

Interesting, as I hadn't thought of the interaction of Blood Sun and the bouncelands essentially removing their 'downside'. But I don't really think this iteration works, Blood Sun removes our ability to activate Slayers' Stronghold and Sunhome, as well as almost blanking Amulet due to the lands not coming into play tapped, this effect is most noticeable when you have multiple Amulets, which is the decks strongest interaction and allows incredibly broken things. I think there might be an actual spot for Lotus Fields somewhere in the deck, at least in theory, but definitely not as a 4-of. There will be many times where your entire hand will be bouncelands and Lotus Fields, essentially forcing mulligans. If you don't draw enough lands to even cast a Blood Sun the drawback is huge since just playing it out you will often have bouncelands as targets, which is losing you mana. Sure you could maybe generate some large amounts of mana with amulets and the Lotus Fields but you're still blowing up all your lands unless you have Blood Sun in play, which makes the deck way more all-in on that interaction since if they have an answer for your titan you've now put yourself incredibly behind instead of still leveraging your lands in play to cast more things. Just my two cents!

Also, Gemstone Mine is often better than Mana Confluence/City of Brass in this deck, as bouncing it restores counters and it's painless. Crumbling Vestige , Tendo Ice Bridge , Aether Hub are also good. Vesuva as a one-of is pretty standard for Amulet Titan decks, as it removes the necessity to run two Boros Garrisons for the Sunhome activation and is much more flexible, I have even won a game using Vesuva to copy an opponent's Celestial Colonnade for lethal.

Also good cards for this kind of deck:

Trinket Mage , utility for sideboard cards + extra Amulets

Walking Ballista , wincon/aggro deterrent

Hornet Queen , almost an auto-win vs. Midrange/Control

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , against storm/spellslinger decks

Dragonlord Dromoka , anti-control/protects titan combo

Sigarda, Host of Herons , anti-control/midrange, impossible to remove

Chameleon Colossus , extremely strong vs. Death's Shadow and black decks in general

Courser of Kruphix , anti-aggro wall that generates life and value, easy to cast

Explore , safer but less explosive than the tribe scouts, also cycles

Khalni Garden , stalls against aggro and can be insurance as a sacrifice target against cards like Liliana of the Veil to protect Titan

Radiant Fountain , good against burn, bounce multiple times

Temple of Mystery , extra card filtering, better if you also run the Serum Visions versions

Abrade , versatile answer

Elvish Champion and Chameleon Colossus would be a good sideboard cards. Also maybe Heroic Intervention on sideboard too for matchups against red. Khalni Hydra might be something to look at too since your deck can fill up the board very quickly with green elves so most games you'll be able to play it for free

Any aversions to using changelings? I would think Chameleon Colossus immediately becomes one of your better bears. Are Spectral Bears too hard to find or too narrow? And including Beast Within and/or Force of Vigor gives some much needed additional removal.

Sectiron on The First Sliver to the Last Sliver

Hi Jasinatael,

In creating this deck I researched numerous things to get started. Among these I looked at other sliver decks and on gatherer I went through all 0 cost cards, slivers and changelings. Unfortunately Taurean Mauler , like Chameleon Colossus , didn't make the cut. I avoided it because I preferred pump cards that have a more global effect rather than buffing just itself. This is because Taurean Mauler on its own can be blocked by a single creature if we don't have evasion or can be simply killed off when it becomes a problem. Furthermore it doesn't have an immediate effect on the board, for our fast/surprise kills, while the lords such as Predatory Sliver , Sinew Sliver , Muscle Sliver and Blade Sliver .

However, the card does seem interesting in the way that it can draw destruction away from The First Sliver , being able to get out of hand relatively quickly. For now I probably won't run it, but it might be a good option in future.

Thanks!

Chameleon Colossus , Woodland Changeling , Changeling Titan , Game-Trail Changeling , Universal Automaton, and Webweaver Changeling might all be good cards to consider if you want more bears

Well I waved the deck onto the board on turn 3. Triple mana rocks turn 2 into Freyalise, Waved for 13 on turn 3 into Earthcraft/Paradox Engine and EWit, getting back Wave. That was fun. :P

I think the only other way to haste all in monogreen is Akroma's Memorial , which, while excellent, is somewhat prohibitive in cost. Crossroads might still have a place if you can win with it, maybe with Triumph. Otherwise, yeah probably not a good idea to throw buffs around the table. Eldrazi Monument would let you fly your creatures in for the kill, but Triumph accomplishes roughly the same effect.

I'd also consider Mutavault and Chameleon Colossus . Colossus gives you a mana sink if you need a stompy creature, while still counting as both an elf and a druid.

Have you considered some changelings in this build? Taurean Mauler and Chameleon Colossus seem to be the strongest and can imitate cheap Dragons.
