Mirari's Wake Discussion
1 day ago
Adorned Pouncer is a must with arahbo. Turning that 1/1 into a 4/4 with doublestrike which swings by turn 3 is nasty and sweet. I do notice as well you haven't included Skyhunter Skirmisher, a considerable powerhouse for the deck being a 4/4 with double strike but with the added benefit of built in evasion on flying for a single more mana. Enlightened Ascetic brings some enchantment removal in the form of a body that can hit for 4 if needed. Leonin Relic-Warder brings in some similar effect. Krosan Vorine is a cat which goes under the radar but with provoke and a little boost from Arahbo, 6/5 going for heads in the field ain't a joke. Leonin Shikari is rather useful if you are going for the equipment approach on Nazahn. Oreskos Explorer acts as a Gift of Estates with a good body for arahbo to boost. Sure we are running Green and have access to better ramp but it is good to consider. Pride Sovereign, out kitty overlord, can get very big with a good White Sun's Zenith or even a Regal Caracal coming into play.
Mirari's Wake was part of the precon and comes along nicely with the deck. It gives you the ability to slam more than a single big cat at once or cast a colossal Zenith.
For a little Go Wide strategy, Overwhelming Stampede can help a bit, even at sorcery speed.
For the final touch. That new Bladehold Kitty from M19 comes in nicely for any cat dek i believe.

Also identifying expensive cards you could cut based on their importance/relative value to the deck:
Potential cuts for budget
- Path to Exile - Swords to plowshares is the better option anyway in the casual format. Lifegain is less useful than ramp for most decks.
- Mirari's Wake - Certainly a good card, but not essential for the deck to function. Maybe a future upgrade instead?
- Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip - Good, but this deck doesn't go so wide or run big X spells that this is essential. Use the slot for a budget ramp piece instead?
- Gavony Township Another good card, but you're not going so wide that this becomes a game winner

In the same vein, Mirari's Wake really helps to ramp up, both your mana base and your creatures.
Herald's Horn lowers the cost of your Slivers and provides repeatable draw. Very useful.
Phyrexian Reclamation is a repeatable way to return cards from your graveyard.
Paradox Engine gives you essentially an unlimited combo with Sliver Overlord, letting you put all of the Slivers in your entire library into play if you've got Manaweft Sliver/Gemhide Sliver/Cryptolith Rite in play. Even if you don't have the combo pieces in play, it can provide a ton of value.
I too play a Sliver EDH deck, so these are some suggestions that I've learned from experience can be rather powerful.

Heliod, God of the Sun and Ant Queen are strong token generators. Mirari's Wake is a great anthem/mana doubler. Gavony Township is also good for heavy creature strategies like yours. You might also consider Craterhoof Behemoth as a finisher and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. I'd also replace Fog with Constant Mists for a fog you can keep using.

So the immediate problem I see is that you're trying to run legendary and non-legendary cards together as a theme, while I think it can work just fine, it'll be very difficult to fit a tertiary theme, and it will be finicky sometimes because they will kinda of grind against each other. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker only works with non-legendary creatures. If you get a few non-legendary creatures out with Jalira, Master Polymorphist and have Heroes' Podium it's going to feel kind of bad, but it'll feel pretty good to have a it with a bunch of legends. Mirari's Wake might fit better for you.
SO relatively, I only added white pretty recently and I only have 5 white cards. Felidar Guardian because it's basically twin combo with Saheeli Rai, but also works with Kiki-Jiki, Restoration Angel I view as a protection spell that just happens to work with Kiki-Jiki. Tamiyo, Field Researcher (combos with Doubling Season and is good value), Anointed Procession (more Doubling Season/Parallel Lives effects), and Teferi's Protection (should be in every deck that can run it as it protects from Cyclonic Rift).
So if I hadn't changed this deck recently I could probably use some of your ideas and then I'd put in Village Bell-Ringer but I don't actually have a reason to just untap most creatures for just value if I need to, having only 5 creatures with Untap abilities anymore, and they are more just either combos themselves or combo protection. Say if I have Tidewater Minion and Kiora's Follower and I go to combo off with Minion and someone just Doom Blade's it I can use Follower to untap Minion and then just float literally billions of mana, here I could use Village Bell-ringer and it'd be the same thing, but Kiora's Follower can untap land for me as well, Bell-ringer can't normally, for me. So if you have more activated abilities Bell-ringer will work for you, and I'd also recommend Thousand-Year Elixir and Illusionist's Bracers if you're not already running them.
I don't play cards that can give my opponents value. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis is the only thing I run basically just for colors. I have to be in a tight spot in order to actually cast it, and it should be a partner commander combination but I had been at such a loss of what even to take out of the deck in order to get a partner combination in here. So I don't play cards like Selvala, Explorer Returned because she gives too much value to opponent's, and again I don't even play K&T unless I have to and I'd rather have partner commanders.
Just make sure all your Twin combo targets can do other things, like, I don't run Breaching Hippocamp because it doens't provide enough for me, while others like Zealous Conscripts can just take someone's Planeswalker and ult them or someone else's kiki-jiki and win, I've used Deceiver Exarch to tap down Blightsteel Colossus and prevent an attack. Interactions.

Extensively updated the description, as well as the decklist which hasn't been updated since the year Breed Lethality was released. For posterity I uploaded my current decklist, though there are plenty of cards I want to cut already, for instance Primal Vigor, Render Silent, and Juniper Order Ranger
The first of which just being really just redundant and a worse version of Doubling Season, not want I want to be playing when there are other cool things available, like Mirari's Wake or Abzan Ascendancy.
As far as Render Silent is concerned, it's just bad. It just is. I have enough off-theme counter spells in the deck as it is. There are far, far better things to be playing that are on theme, such as Draining Whelk that I'd love to play.
And for the last card, it's just boring. And it just sits there costing five mana and waiting to get removed. Don't get me wrong, Juniper Order Ranger is great and it's good in our deck, but there's a lot of other cards in the list that are already putting in that work better, at lower cost, such as Corpsejack Menace and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

Craterhoof Behemoth would be a great finisher for this deck. Anointed Procession, Mirari's Wake, Marshal's Anthem, and Parallel Lives would also be really good enchantments to include for more tokens/buffs. Second Harvest can also do gross things if you have a decent amount of tokens.

If you want a less competitive, more janky route, you can always just grab a random 5-color commander (I'd say Cromat would be the best as an infinite mana sink) and throw in all the tutors Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor to tutor for tutors, etc. along with all the 2-card combos in magic. Palinchron + Mirari's Wake and Deadeye Navigator. All the different possible Splinter Twin/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos, etc.
