Mana Echoes Discussion

Sorry for not responding sooner - got busy with life and stuff. Also been working on a new deck for funsies. However, your question: would Maelstrom Nexus work as a possible value engine in your deck? In my opinion...I think you wouldn't get as much value out of the card as you would like. According to my count you have 13 cards in your deck that are CMC 5 or 6. Ideally with Maelstrom Nexus out, you'd cast one of those big cards and cast something smaller - ideally a Sliver. The problem here is that there's a bit of unpredictability with Cascade - once you cast that spell you could end up revealing and casting any of your instants or sorceries. Imagine Cascadeing into a Armageddon with no Gemhide Sliver on the board?
tl:dr - Would Maelstrom Nexus be fun to play? Yes. Would it get you consistent results with every Cascade trigger? No. Sometimes, it may even hurt you.
If you were looking for more consistent results that result in ether value, or just outright win you the game then I'd suggest:
The previously mentioned cards when paired with a Mana and Haste Sliver result in you casting everything from your deck for the most part. Sure, it doesn't exactly fit within the aggro play style you seem to be going for, but it ends the game. Most players who have played against Slivers know exactly what any of the previously mentioned cards mean when you get them on the battlefield, so expect to have to defend it when it hits the board. What do you think of my suggestions? Would you want to use any of those, or are you looking for something more unique?

This deck is going to be dead in the water until it can get its Aetherflux Resovoir up. I recommend Whir of Invention, Gamble, Fabricate, Reshape, Planar Portal, Inventors' Fair, or Hoarding Dragon so you can find that your reservoir ASAP.
Speaking of lands, add a Reliquary Tower if you really want that Psychosis Crawler to get ugly.
Lotus Petal is an auto-include that you'd never hate to draw with this deck.
You'd also want some alternative win cons and do dumb things with your artifacts if your reservoir gets exiled, so let's do some crazy shit. Let's make everything artifacts with Mycosynth Lattice, make them indestructible with Darksteel Forge, then nuke everyone else's stuff with Nevinyrral's Disk, and make lots and lots of indestructible ugly beasts with Karn, Scion of Urza. You've got Mishra's Self-Replicator in there which can be fun if you can afford to keep paying for tokens. You know what works great with that? Mana Echoes.
Aetherflux Reservoir is an awesome card but with the right deck you can have a lot of fun even if you don't draw it.

Nice deck. If you added Mana Echoes you can create infinite mana, and with Gemhide Sliver and a haste sliver, you can have infinite colour mana too. Sliver Queen is the creature producer. +1from me, and feel free to have a look at mine

Hey I actually am rebuilding my Edgar deck right now, and I've realized a few things about the deck. So here's what I think...
- Dark Prophecy: Triple black, and can be used against your by wiping your board as it is NOT a may ability. So if you have 15 creatures and they WOG you lose 15 life which could be the game...
- Land Tax: I just don't think you need it, you operate with very little mana in this deck and I think you're fine without it.
- Umezawa's Jitte: I just don't like this card in EDH 9/10 the creature with the Jitte will ALWAYS be blocked. I just think there are better value cards out there
- Torment Of Hailfire: No one is ever going to do what you want with this card. Lets say they have an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger on the table and you want it dead... they'll discard every card, lose all the life, and sac all the lands before they get rid of the ONE card you wanted gone. Just play a hard removal, Damnation
- Sign In Blood & Night's Whisper: They are one off and you have plenty of draw power in the deck that is consistent. At the very least cut Sign as is't double black and you are in 3 colors.
- Gifted Aetherborn: I tried it but it just doesn't do enough... Plus double black
- Bloodline Necromancer: Too expensive, you want cheap vamps to maximize on Eminence! Plus you have Reclamation so...
Cards Worth adding:
- Bloodghast too good
- Purphoros, God of the Forge great in multiplayer
- Olivia, Mobilized for War the haste helps a LOT
- Olivia Voldaren Can steal enemy commanders
- Sangromancer punishes your opponent
- Shadow Alley Denizen Value town weenie
- Westvale Abbey Flip you produce tokens why not?
- Cathars' Crusade Burst potential is so great
- Anointed Procession helps with going wide
- Cover of Darkness Meta dependent, great in playgroups not black heavy
- Mana Echoes SO MUCH MANA!

TBH I stopped playing Slivers due to the constant targeting, even when I'm behind. People know the fear of slivers, and go above and beyond to screw you over unless you can luckily get an alliance with Table Politics. Due to this, I recommend you try and find some good Couterspells or more removal due to the constant targeting.
I also see a lot of slivers that don't fully make sense to me. I know you're going for the "Punch them in the face" tactic, but there is such thing as Pillow Fort/Control, and this deck will lose to them a lot without any game ending combos. The easiest (yet expensive) combo is playing Sliver Queen after Mana Echoes. Infinite 1/1s and colorless mana is an easy 2 card combo, and it doesn't stop there. Getting a tap source with infinite 1/1s and Haste Slivers can trigger Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Heck, even playing Altar of the Brood and popping the combo will win you the game, all you need to do then is pass!
I'm being 100% serious when I say this: Aggro decks in EDH are hard to pull off due to the amount of good removal and combos that pop off before you can even swing. I'm not saying you can't, far from it. I'm saying that you need to be a skilled veteran to MTG, EDH, and Aggro to know who to target and when.
I like your deck though! It was a completely different side from my Combo-Pillow Fort Slivers deck. I recommend you add some removal, counters, or even card advantage such as Distant Melody. Its up to you though, you definitely know more cards than I know of!

You say arcane adaptation doesn't do much, but it makes all the cards in your deck the creature type. In your case you'd pick sliver so you can fetch out any creature, lords included. You also deny Urborg having any use, but if you also throw in Cabal Coffers You then have a looooot of mana to use to fetch with as well.
I'd also consider Mana Echoes

If you're wanting to play combo slivers, you should look into outlet cards like Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist who form a combo with your commander and Basal Sliver, Ashnod's Altar or Mana Echoes (which you should add). Cutthraot and artist don't work with Mana Echoes however are still good enough to run. The other slivers you should look ata running are Dormant Sliver and Necrotic Sliver.
You don't need Darkheart Sliver, Ghostflame Sliver, Fungus Sliver or Mistform Sliver. They don't do enough to wanrrant a slot. You should however look at including Nature's Lore, Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman (assuming you have fetches) and Noble Hierarch (depending on budget).

Is there another interaction that warrants Striking Sliver being in here?
Outside of it's great synergy with Venom Sliver, Striking is nice to play when Dormant, Basal (Striking is usually one of the first Slivers I sac for the ), Gemhide or Harmonic Sliver is on the battlefield. Even better, is when you're trying to go off with Mana Echoes or Paradox Engine. I guess what i'm trying to get at is that Striking fills a gap, a need when you want a drop to get value.
