I dunno, but Hive Stirrings always seemed good to me. If you go beyond /,you could run things like Winged Sliver, Heart Sliver and one of my pet cards (it just looks so cool!) Frenzy Sliver.

SaltySpecula I'd argue that Hivelord is just as viable as Overlord. The strategy is just aggro as opposed to control. Also, Mana Echoes + Sliver Queen does not equal infinite mana. It equals infinite slivers. I do actually agree on your assessment of Hive Stirrings though. It's neat for a casual deck, but even in EDH it doesn't really have much impact.

Slivers is always fun. Something you may want to try: Mana Echoes + Sliver Queen = infinite mana.Hive Stirrings isn't that good, sadly. If you're willing to take a different commander, I'd suggest Sliver Overlord as your commander. Reliable sliver tutuor. Also, he pairs very well with Unnatural Selection and Amoeboid Changeling which will let you steal other player's good creatures.

Drop 2 Hive Stirrings for a playset of Descendants' Path

Mana Confluence is also a good "any color" land.

Regarding the slivers, i would play 8 mana producing ones Gemhide Sliver & Manaweft Sliver, a lot (probably 8) cheap slivers that increase power toughness like you do.
However i would add 4 Hive Stirrings, reduce the number of ability offering slivers to bare minimum and would get them via Homing Sliver, and the dual colored ones from the sideboard with Glittering Wish

And the rest of the mana base should be green/white imho.

Well i would try to pick up a playset of the leaked spoiled ixalan tribal land, unclaimed territory and the slightly older Ancient Ziggurat

I would also consider abusing the fact that the tribe offers so much flexibility, by utilising the tutor Homing Sliver, put all my multicolored slivers into wishboard to get with Glittering Wish.
This gives the option to play the more crazy stuff as one of in the main like Mesmeric Sliver (to play lantern controll with slivers), or to play the big sliver lords from the side/wishboard (Sliver Hivelord & Sliver Legion)

The tutoring effects also free you up to focus more on mana generating slivers, and non sliver cards that help you a lot like Collected Company, Hive Stirrings and the like - while playing slivers that grant effects you want as a 1 of, since you can tutor them whenever you wish.
And ixalan will bring a new green enchantment that will draw you a card if an effect targets your creatures! (for )

Slivers. Ain't nuthin' wrong with that.

All I can really ask is have you considered Cautery Sliver or Hive Stirrings? Cautery is great for dealing those last points of damage to an opponent or a really tough creature... or at least spite your opponent when they use a kill spell. And two mana is pretty affordable.

MindAblaze, absolutely! Do you already have a gameplan in mind, or would you like suggestions for a deck direction from me?

Because either way, I'm assuming that the idea is to flip Kytheon as soon as possible (turn 3-4) and then spam board wipes after activating his 0 or +1 to protect him or other creatures.

If that's the case, you want two other creatures by turn 3-4 to attack with so that he flips. Those creatures will probably die (this is commander, after all), but a worthy sacrifice to get a flipped Kytheon, I think. Activate his +2, and I think 5 loyalty is a good place to be for turn 3-4.

Those two creatures can be two tokens made via a 2-3 drop (4+ drops are too slow!), and I have put them here for your convenience:

Fourteen is what we need, and fourteen is what we can get.
