Quicksilver Amulet , Cryptic Gateway , Thran Temporal Gateway , Vanquisher's Banner , Cascading Cataracts , Crystal Quarry , Thran Quarry , City of Brass , Grand Coliseum , Guildmages' Forum

These are a few suggestions that you might like. Also the converted mana cost is a little high and the land count is a little low. With this deck, you probably want around 37-40 lands. Also you will have a lot of opening hands with only high drop dragons in it. I would suggest cutting some dragons and adding mana rocks and/or more ramp spells like Explosive Vegetation , or Tempt with Discovery .

Some mana rocks: Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , etc.

It is a very good start though.

Best budget suggestions I could think of:

Coldsteel Heart - can become the colored source you need the most right now

Wayfarer's Bauble - crappy version of Rampant Growth but is an artifact and puts the basic needed most directly into play.

Goblin Welder - more shenanigans with artifacts that can swap opponents' stuff as well.

Starting to go up in price but would be awesome if you land one, Smothering Tithe , as EDH players love to draw cards.

You have a pretty low overall CMC in the deck, with only one card costing over 5, so maybe cut Temple of the False God for another colored mana source? Grand Coliseum , while hardly optimal, isn't overly expensive to get and would probably get you by long enough to draw a regular source of the needed color[s].

Hey NKNWNtt! Welcome to T/O!

You can consider adding in lands that damage you such as Ancient Tomb , Nomad Stadium , Tarnished Citadel , City of Brass , and Grand Coliseum to proc more triggers when you have Darien active.

To help with card draw you can definitely add in Skullclamp to help you use all your tokens and gain advantage with them. Secure the Wastes is also a good investment at any point of the game to make plenty of tokens.

Hope that helps!

You run both. You want both Paradox Engine + Intruder Alarm as well as Gemhide Sliver + Manaweft Sliver + Cryptolith Rite. This lets you get your combo out as consistently as possible, plus all of these individually massively help your game plan even if you aren't comboing out with them.

Training Grounds makes your commander's ability immensely more usable. Helps with a few of the activation costs from Slivers as well, like Necrotic Sliver.

I also play 5c Slivers with Overlord as the Commander.

Here are some cards I'd suggest with that experience in mind:

Descendants' Path is a great draw engine. Mirari's Wake buffs your slivers and doubles your mana. Phyrexian Reclamation lets you pull Slivers from your yard. Shared Animosity is one of the best one sided buffs you can give your Slivers. Steely Resolve for an additional way to give them all hexproof. Spirit of Resistance combos with Sliver Hivelord making it so you cannot lose the game. Konda's Banner gives +2/+2 to all slivers when attached to a 5c sliver. Vanquisher's Banner is a draw engine and buffs your slivers. Distant Melody draws a ton, Domri Rade serves many roles and is very cheap to play, Cyclonic Rift belongs in any EDH list with blue in it. Shaman of Forgotten Ways is a good ramper, helps to hit 5 colors and has a win-con attached to it. I also run a Birds of Paradise for color fixing.

This deck doesn't look to be a budget deck, except in your lands. That's okay, that's exactly how my deck is as well. Here are some good cards to make fixing 5 colors easier:

The Vivid land cycle: Vivid Crag Vivid Creek Vivid Grove Vivid Marsh Vivid Meadow. 5 lands that can tap for any color twice.

The Triple Taplands: Seaside Citadel, Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Savage Lands, Jungle Shrine, Sandsteppe Citadel, Mystic Monastery, Opulent Palace, Nomad Outpost, Frontier Bivouac.

The cheaper 5c lands: Ancient Ziggurat, Cascading Cataracts, City of Brass, Command Tower, Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse + (only) 1 of each basic, Exotic Orchard, Grand Coliseum, Mirrodin's Core, Path of Ancestry, Rupture Spire, Sliver Hive, Transguild Promenade, Gateway Plaza, Unclaimed Territory, Unknown Shores.

Running a combination of all of these means you only need 1 of each basic, and you'll have no problem hitting 5 colors asap. There are better ways to build the mana pool for 5c Slivers, but it costs thousands of dollars worth of lands.

Anyways, love what you've got going on so far. Hope your table hates playing against this deck as much as my table hates playing against mine, haha.

I noticed you had Arid Mesa in there but no basic mountains or plains which would make it useless unless cards like Volcanic Island counts as technically they are both types. I also noticed that you have many lands that sacrifice themselves for a specific color or two specific colors I think it would be beneficial to add some three color lands like Frontier Bivouac, Opulent Palace, Crumbling Necropolis or Savage Lands. Rupture Spire and Grand Coliseum are good too. Unknown Shores is another option if you still need more multicolored.

If you want to work with your commander, there are a lot of ways to damage yourself.

Notably on the land side of things: Grand Coliseum and Nomad Stadium are good budget options.

Benalish Marshal from Dominaria would probably be a good addition here as well. You might want to grab a Crusade and Celestial Crusader while you're at it. Kindred Boon is a pretty sweet mono-white card for tribal decks.

If you need help cutting cards, I feel like Sunlance, Soul Parry, Pacifism, Mortal's Ardor, Mighty Leap, and Dauntless Onslaught are the weakest cards here at the moment.

+1 from me. :)

Hey, consider adding more good ramp? The avg. CMC here is 4.5, that's very high without having a lot of ramp. Dinos can benefit from lots of ramp because most have high mana costs. Zacama is also nine mana.

Consider adding:
