I recommend adding a Lion's Eye Diamond to the deck.
There's a god hand T1 win with Food Chain but it requires 6 specific cards.
-Squee, the Immortal
-Any other land to discard to Mox Diamond
-Lion's Eye Diamond
1)Play Ancient Tomb and Mox Diamond discarding any other land.
2)Tap for three mana to play Food Chain
3)Cast Lion's Eye Diamond discarding Squee and any other card.
4)Make three red mana from L.E.D and cast Squee from the graveyard to make infinite coloured mana off of FC.
5)Cast the commander, fetch the wincon, play it and proceed to win the game by casting the commander infinitely to FC.

Mooncalf1988 i realized very quickly after i started playing. My dumbass was thinking that Food Chain would only add 3 mana. Its easy to forget hes 12 mana, not 2 mana lmfao. This is one of my favorite decks, so thanks alot!

Entomb target is usually Squee, the Immortal , or Food Chain if Noxious Revival , Reap , Sevinne's Reclamation or Yawgmoth's Will is in hand. Occasionally I will entomb Memory's Journey to disrupt someone's graveyard if win con is in there (e.g. flash-hulk combo generally interacts with the graveyard)

Sorry for taking so long to respond, but as for your question - "Should First Sliver be the commander instead of sliver overlord?" - First things first (pun intended) - if you ever see a Sliver Overlord as an opponent, your commander will likely get stolen without a Crystalline Sliver or something there to prevent it. First has two strategies - sliver tribal where you just rely on cascade triggers and dump out all your permanents as fast as possible, and as a cEDH Food Chain commander - I highly recommend ShaperSavant's Food Chain Sliver as a good point of reference. Both strategies are totally viable, but are meant for very different metas.
But to answer your question directly - First should absolutely be your commander if your play style and personal preference is geared more toward it. Your only real worry in a tribal meta is Sliver Overlord , but if you have the right tools you can stop your commander from getting stolen.

sam171z Thanks for the upvote!
The deck won't really work because Food Chain is banned in Duel Commander, and this deck is categorized as a Korvold Food Chain deck, even though there are other ways to win.
You can still pull off many of the combos using Dockside Extortionist + Temur Sabertooth or Cloudstone Curio + Dockside Extortionist + a creature card, but those don't win on the spot unless your opponent has at least 5 enchantments/artifacts. Seeing as many of the mana rocks are banned, I don't know how often that happens in Duel Commander.
Without knowing more of the Duel Commander meta, I'd say that none of the The Korvold Food Chain decks, including this Lands-matter version, will work in Duel Commander.
