Living Death Discussion

I mean, I'm surprised no one mentioned any cantrips yet... Ponder and Preordain are pretty easily two of the best cards in EDH (there's a reason they're banned in Modern), so I think you should stick them in there. multimedia's suggestion of a Flash line is a good plan, and adding the cantrips can help you find it (or whatever combo). Since you're not running fetchlands, I don't think Brainstorm is a good idea. If you do run things like Polluted Delta , it gets REALLY good.
I would also like to point out that, being as creature heavy as you are, you may have trouble with boardwipes. I think you should consider backup cards, like Living Death or Heroic Intervention , since they'll let you survive if you get hit with a Toxic Deluge or Supreme Verdict .
I like that you're running Deathrite Shaman and Birds of Paradise , but you should run some other dorks as well. Arbor Elf is good, especially with duals like your Overgrown Tomb . I'm also a big fan of Elves of Deep Shadow or the classical-era Fyndhorn Elves / Llanowar Elves / Elvish Mystic . Running dorks gets your general down that much faster, meaning your deck overall becomes exponentially more powerful.
If you run the dorks, you can cut cards like Chromatic Lantern in order to make Collector Ouphe viable. Collector Ouphe is a brutal card, especially since you can find it off of your Green Sun's Zenith .
You're running a lot of basics for a tri-color deck without Back to Basics or Blood Moon . There're some cards you may want to look into, like Mana Confluence , City of Brass , Reflecting Pool ... These'll smooth out your mana nicely.
Efficient counterspells can help protect your general and slow down your opponents. I suggest considering some of the following: Spell Snare , Spell Pierce , Delay , Dispel , Swan Song , Veil of Summer , Narset's Reversal or even Mental Misstep , depending upon your meta.

I'd run Adaptive Automaton and Crystal Shard . Blasphemous Act as well. Unclaimed Territory is a must and I like Tarnished Citadel . Living Death could be kida killer if you let the king go to the graveyard, and given his cost it isnt a bad idea. I think Firemind Vessel is actually really good here. Cauldron of Souls could also be interesting. I don't love Nim Deathmantle never have. I really don't like Cover of Darkness .

Hey xaarvaxus Nice thanks man, I forgot about Supreme Will but that is a great suggestion! I'm definitely not running Thieves' Fortune for the prowl cost haha. It's just another instant speed cantrip that can setup my Tunnel Vision , so getting a mana leak attached to it would definitely be a plus.
The Chainer suggestion is interesting, I have to think about that one. The plan is to win on one trigger of Gray Merchant in combination with my other creatures' triggers. All my other black creatures punish my opponents for having creatures ETB from my Living Death and deal additional damage as a result.

Thieves' Fortune could be upgraded with Supreme Will . Essentially the same cost as the chance of triggering prowl is almost non-existent, has the Impulse effect you are looking for plus you have another potential [weak] counterspell in the decklist.
A couple of non-creature permanents to add to your devotion could be useful here; No Mercy , Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence or a mono-black planeswalker like Ob Nixilis Reignited . Sorry these aren't the most budget of suggestions...

Maybe using cards like Sidisi, Undead Vizier so you can tutor cards and sac stuff you need in the grave, Scheming Symmetry , Phyrexian Delver , Bolas's Citadel , Buried Alive to tutor your wincons to the gy (like Necrotic Ooze Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion and you win in the spot), Animate Dead , Dark Petition , Carrion Feeder , Gravecrawler , Living Death / Rise of the Dark Realms (that last one is kinda expensive) I'd suggest those as black cards. Using Sol Ring is more useful than Worn Powerstone , Expedition Map to tutor any land to hand, Tormod's Crypt bc gy hate is useful, Gilded Lotus 3 mana by 5 isn't bad, Thought Vessel , Aetherflux Reservoir wincon tho. The mana base kinda concerns me by the amount of basic swamps, you could use something like Cabal Stronghold , Reliquary Tower , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds even if it's a mono color deck, being able to shuffle and get lands out of the deck will be useful, less dead draws. Sword of the Animist is always useful if you don't have ramp.

+1 my guy. @Your post
Darkblast is probably playable.
Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.
I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

I have my own sliver deck
Commander / EDH*

So I'll be making suggestions based on my experience with Sliver Overlord as commander.
There are 2 cards The First Sliver can take unfair advantage of. They are Hibernation Sliver and Aetherflux Reservoir . You will get a lot of free spells, especially if you have Morophon, the Boundless out. Mosswort Bridge works nice with your commander, too.
Just by looking at your deck, I get the idea that you want to get the most out of every cascade trigger. Almost every card that is less than 5 CC is a sliver, even if it's a bad sliver (several of the slivers with sacrifice abilities) or a changeling. While that does help the deck be more explosive, it really hurts its resiliency. If there's a boardwipe, or spot removal aimed at your commander, you will fall very far behind if you don't have the mana to recast your commander. That's why Crystalline Sliver is always the first thing I search for with Overlord.
I suggest a bit of a paradigm shift. I'd add more lower converted mana cost cards and some card advantage, that way you won't be blown out of the water with all-too-common boardwipes. When slivers are out, people tend to play those cards more often for some reason. I like Distant Melody , Chromatic Lantern , Aphetto Dredging , Living Death , Bring to Light , Opaline Sliver , and Sol Ring . Wheel of Fate works really well with your commander, as does Living End . It should be noted that if you don't want to cast the card you cascade into, you don't have to. If you choose to not cast it, it'll be shuffled back to the bottom of your deck to be cascaded into later instead. Also, Mirror Entity is killer with slivers.
Let me know what you think! I may change my deck to go with The First Sliver sometimes, so I'd appreciate if you have feedback I'm not aware of.

So far, one of the biggest things I can point out with this deck is that there are certain 'kits' (small 2-card or so sets of cards with a theme) that really don't have anything to do with the rest of the deck...and they're not going to be very consistent without extensive tutoring (even then, I don't see how they'll be better than just refining the deck itself).
Wildgrowth Walker + Path of Discovery is cute, but without Path, Walker is useless (and then we also need a ton of tokens to make this matter). Divine Visitation + Bishop of Wings is cute, but Bishop is pretty bad on it's own (and then we need a sac outlet and a payoff to make this matter). And I'm not sure what you're doing with Scapeshift and Worldshaper in an aristocrats list like this one. We can do landfall token generation, but I feel we'd need to really go for it a bit more if we want to make it worthwhile.
Another note with aristocrat strategies is you're better off, generally, with 'burst' reanimation...not just picking up one thing to your hand here and there as Oversold Cemetery and Meren are doing (I'm not saying it's bad, I'm just saying there's better for the strategy). Things like Thrilling Encore , Living Death , and Rally the Ancestors are your friends here. With that in mind, I would include some cheap creature-based sacrifice outlets, since those can be reanimated much more easily than the alternatives. Things like Viscera Seer at least, if not any suitable Nantuko Husk analogs...they aren't flashy, but they are functional. Also: Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip
