Copy Artifact Discussion

Strionic Resonator 100% needs to be in here. Copy Artifact can be Strionic Resonator #2 for or it copies a mana rock. Ral Zarek is also handy for untapping Strionic Resonator or Mana Vault type rocks and it only takes a few extra turns to ult.

Try Pentad Prism over Sphere of the Suns. It doesn't tap and you can remove both counters at once (only 2 drop mana rock that can get you 2 colored mana, granted once). Copy Artifact also doubles as a mana rock (or 2nd Strionic Resonator). For more ramp consider Crystal Vein and Generator Servant .

I have a few suggestions for you outside of the obvious of get more extra combat/turn spells in here.
Generator Servant - haste and ramp in one.
Talisman of Progress , Lotus Petal , Pentad Prism , Basalt Monolith , and Worn Powerstone are all worth it here. Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo on the other hand don't help with a turn 3-4 Narset... they cost too much. Copy Artifact is also worth it here.
Aqueous Form is great evasion here and you can scry before Narset's attack trigger.
Ral Zarek I like here more than Chandra. The untap is handy for things like Mana Vault or for Narset to block and that ult is easy to hit with just a few extra turns.
Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly but it's a very very optimized non Omniscience/ETI list. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Firstly it would seem that you've made a miscalculation. With Freed from the Real & Bloom Tender together you net 1 abundant mana (not really relevant which colours - even if it's only abundant green that should be enough - provided you can support a few other colours via lands & rocks), and finally end on one blue, and abundant other colour(s). This then means that you cast Sliver Overlord , tutor up Heart Sliver and Gemhide Sliver (or any dork-sliver) to then produce additional colours of mana as you need, meaning that you can add blue to your pool for each sliver and begin generating abundant mana of each colour. From here you can grab your combo & win.
Copy Artifact may not be your cup-of-tea; but while grabbing Arcane Adaptation might be cool - it's without a doubt a win-more card. Because by the time you have 10 mana to cast overlord, tutor & play a 2 drop you probably should've won xD

CyborgAeon: Cheers for the response. I had looked at using Freed from the Real , however my biggest concern with it an Bloom Tender is that you end up producing WBRG each loop (assuming you have your commander out). This in turn is not enough to loop Sliver Overlord and then means I can't combo via it. That's why I went for Umbral Mantle instead - it lets me produce WUBRG from both Bloom Tender and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds . I was also thinking of adding Gaea's Cradle so that I could put Umbral Mantle on Kiora's Follower as well.
The reason I was looking at Nivix Guildmage was that as well as producing infinite mana, he can act as a draw engine for Timetwister and Noxious Revival without the extra card requirements. Though Izzet Guildmage seems good too, I had kind of forgotten about him. Talking to a mate about it, he was actually recommending Riftsweeper instead, which does go all in on the Acidic Sliver line but technically provides redundancy on every pieces.
I'm on the fence about Copy Artifact - it's not bad but I don't think I need it here.
As for Overlord himself, I get that he's basically a dedicated combo piece. But the benefit of him is that he provides access to all five colours, provides a tutor for the deck win condition and can help get there faster by tutoring 2 mana BoPs in the form of Manaweft Sliver and Gemhide Sliver . He's also naturally a 7/7, which is nothing to scoff at. I did think about Hivestone but decided not to run it as it's only good for mana fixing, which I can get with Cryptolith Rite . I was thinking about Arcane Adaptation which gives Overlord deck-wide tutor, but for now am under the opinion that it's too mana inefficient. I might change my mind on this though.

I'd recommend Freed from the Real to go with bloom tender. This also means that you can use land auras such as Wild Growth (furthermore - this on a blue producing land means that Arbor Elf & Kiora's Follower & Selvala, Heart of the Wilds combo with FFtR).
I could be wrong, but I believe Izzet Guildmage offers the same utility at a cheaper mana cost and also combos the same as nivix guildmage, though it can't loot (usually this downside is ignored, since you can just copy any cantrip to excess, or copy a tutor).
I feel like running Copy Artifact would enable further wins via dual-scepters.
Overall I believe that the sliver plan will be very slow, as the only benefit that's provided is occasional stealing of a creature. You have a 'build your own hatebear' in the cz that needs other cards to operate; maybe Hivestone will help you to achieve your goals better?

Hmmm for an alternative win con and such, I usually go for Future Sight + Paradox Engine + Sensei's Divining Top or Helm of Awakening to go into infinite draws. After that I would use a spell like Bitter Ordeal and recur it with Codex Shredder . Another line I go for is the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal in addition with Copy Artifact + Winds of Rebuke / Swan Song and go infinite mill or birdies.
