Leeching Sliver Discussion

Hibernation Sliver is a great option for preventing your Slivers from being sent to the graveyard.
I would recommend four copies of Galerider Sliver, to maximize your chances of playing it on your first mana.
Aether Vial is absurdly good in Slivers. You fill your deck with a bunch of 2 mana Slivers, get two counters on Aether Vial, and then throw out a free Sliver each turn.
Leeching Sliver is great. You get free damage through, even if your Slivers are blocked. If you have multiple copies in play, the abilities stack, creating absurd amounts of life-loss.

I am mostly going to agree with MrJohny--with the exception of Goblins, Slivers are the most aggressive tribe in the game. I am a huge fan of unusual deck arctypes, and would love to see a Sliver deck taken in a more control-oriented direction.
This deck, however, is not that. As MrJohny pointed out, you have no way of winning. Slivers have incredible ramp with Manaweft Sliver, allowing you to play fairly significant win conditions. Sliver Legion or Sliver Queen would make for powerful finishers.
If you want to go full control, Hibernation Sliver is a great option, as it allows you to save your Slivers from removal. Personally, I think it is a vastly better option than Diffusion Sliver, as it also protects against boardwipes. That said, you are running a lot of damage-dealing lands, so you might not have the health for it. Cutting a few colours from your deck would mitigate this some.
On the more aggressive side of things, I want to add Galerider Sliver and Leeching Sliver to MrJohny's suggestions. A one-drop that gives all your creatures evasion is absurd, and the additional damage Leeching Sliver provides, even if your creatures are blocked, can add up quickly.

So first off, slivers CAN be good and not broken. The key is which you use. To achieve this end, here are a few slivers that would create a more solid gameplay experience but have an at least okay deck. I can help with the others too, but for now we'll talk about this.
Anything that just buffs the team: Predatory Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Might Sliver, Battle Sliver, Armor Sliver and Barbed Sliver, Blade Sliver, Bonesplitter Sliver, Muscle Sliver, and Sinew Sliver are all pretty cool, but a standout for me, a SUPER fun sliver to play: Firewake Sliver.
Abilities that aren't too broken include Blur Sliver, Belligerent Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Heart Sliver, Leeching Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Quick Sliver, Reflex Sliver, Sentinel Sliver, Striking Sliver, Syphon Sliver, Two-Headed Sliver, Venom Sliver.
Consider making this deck pauper? It would probably limit it enough to be fair.

Gemhide Sliver is another option, but probably unnecessary--all your slivers are 1 or 2 mana, so additional ramp does not provide you much utility--any sliver you tap for mana is a sliver you are not attacking with, and that seems a bit wasted.

"My goal with the Sliver deck was to have a highly synergystic creature combo deck that wins by attacking with creatures for obscene, unblockable, sliver damage."
Just so we're clear, it sounds like you want to build an aggro deck. Yes? Well in that case, Overlord isn't exactly the choice for you. He's a great sliver, but he's not the only choice...and he's suited to more control/midrange decks. It sounds like Sliver Hivelord or Sliver Legion are the choices for you. Additionally, you'd want to put in some means for tutoring creatures i.e. Worldly Tutor. Additionally, you'll have to cut back on slivers to make room for more spells and enchantments that contribute to your wincon. Here are some recommended cuts:
Virulent Sliver > Shared Animosity. If you are hitting your opponent 10 times to kill them, then you're doing something wrong. Virulent just isn't worth the effort because much like Diffusion Sliver the ability needs to stack in order to be effective. But since you can only have one Virulent Sliver, it's just not worth including.
Metallic Mimic > Megantic Sliver. having more lords available to you is just best. Besides it's like a huge bomb going off when hitting the field. The icing on the cake is that it also has sweet promo art.
Amoeboid Changeling > Xenagos, God of Revels (or Magma Sliver) you don't necessarily have to stick to slivers only. There are other creatures out there that offer alot to your battle strategy. But Amoeboid isn't aggro based. It's strictly for synergy with Sliver Overlord which doesn't really fit your game plan.

In my experience with Ancient Ziggurat, it has screwed me over more times than it has helped. Instead, I run Vivid Grove and Reflecting Pool, since as long as you have Caver, Hive, or Confluence. Also, while most sliver decks run Sedge Sliver, it can be ditched for a more aggressive alternative, such as Leeching Sliver or Sliver Legion, which both allow for a really quick closure.
