Mystic Monastery Discussion

Here's some land recommendations, because playing 5 colors is hard without the right lands:
Ancient Ziggurat, Command Tower, Crystal Quarry, Frontier Bivouac (run all 10 of the tri-colored tap lands, they're cheap and good), Mystic Monastery, Nomad Outpost, Opulent Palace, Rupture Spire, Sandsteppe Citadel, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel, Shimmering Grotto, Sliver Hive, Transguild Promenade.
You should drop all your basic lands down to 1 of each type. Running 5x Vivid lands and 10x Tri-color lands, and 1 of each basic land takes up 20 land slots. The rest should be land that some how taps for all colors.
I run a pretty low budget Slivers list, with Hivelord as the commander as well. Here's some cards that could up the power level of your deck without crazy monetary investment:
Primal Rage and Shared Triumph offer buffs to all of your Slivers. Spirit of Resistance makes you invincible if you have Sliver Hivelord in play. Unearth is a solid way to return some of your best Slivers to play after removal. Harsh Sustenance is solid removal with the added benefit of life gain. Obelisk of Urd is a good way to pump up your Slivers. Domri Rade is a planeswalker that works really well with Slivers. Gives you consistent removal as well as draw. The ultimate makes it real difficult to lose games.

This isn't super sorted, but I tried to keep similar effects together, sorted by cost as well.
General Tip - Since Narset can only cast things whenever they could be cast, instants are a big advantage
About Wraths - You won't want to cast them with Narset out, but it's better than dying(probably get 4-6)
Things to cut:
any equipment - equipment is okay, but since you don't get the equip cost for free you want to focus on low equip costs, or things that protect narset
about aura's - normally they're just card disadvantage but narset probably offsets that
bounce lands - (like Boros Garrison) are usually a little awkward and slow, in three colors you're better off with basics
Aether Gale - tricky since it needs six targets and that won't always be possible
Sea God's Revenge - bounce that only targets creatures usually isn't worth it in EDH, probably better to have hard removal
Breath of Fury - while decent if you have the creatures (and you have some token generation) it's probably not consistent enough, just run sorcs that give extra combats
Dissipation Field - often gives too much value to opponents, maybe even being a lure (lightmine field might be a decent replacement)
Dismiss Into Dreams - you're not targeting that often, and if you are it should be removal anyways
Assemble the Legion - Seems to slow to be effective
Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Need to go wide for this to be really effective
_cheap$$(around or less than a dollar): _
Swords to Plowshares(removal) - excellent creature removal, cheap if you happen to draw it
Crib Swap(removal) - still exiles a creature outright, but 3cmc
Banishing Stroke (removal, tuck, utility) - expensive hard cast without narset/miracle but tucking is often better than destroying(worse than exiling)
Relentless Assault(extra combats) - Extra attack steps with Narset is dumb, do it
Fury of the Horde(extra combats) - extra attack steps (they're the best)
Boros Charm(protection, burn) - versatile, keeps narset alive
Return to Dust(utility removal) - Exiling artifacts and enchantments is better than not
Vandalblast(Mass artifact removal) - not an exciting card, but taking out only opponents artifacts cripples some decks
Sunforger(tutor/equipment) - only good if you have enough cards it can search for, is mana intensive but if you have enough cards it can fetch it'll be worth it
Lightmine Field(pillowfort/defense) - Narset can attack through it, and keeps token swarms off your back
Crawlspace(pillowfort/defense) - Against, stops large swarms, still you'll probably get hit by the two biggest creatures
Counterflux(counterspell) - strong counterspell, wins counter wars
Render Silent(counterspell) - Makes people sad, locks them out of whole turns
Insidious Will(counterspell, spell copy) - versatile, let's you copy stronger effects from narset as well
Reverberate(spell copy) - often is what you need it to be, can be a counterspell or raw value, great for piggybacking on green ramp
Wild Ricochet(spell copy) - copy a spell, twice!
Spelltwine(spell copy, recursion) - recursion is great since you're putting so much stuff in your graveyard
Call to Mind (recursion) - you have spells, may as well re-use the best ones
Mystic Retrieval (recursion) - same but with flashback!
Mirari(spell copying) - copying any instant or sorcery for three is a pretty good deal if you don't have to pay for the spell already
Clone Legion(wincon) - With how many etb creatures people run, this can be a game ender, or enough raw value to put you ahead
Blatant Thievery(card advantage, removal) - stealing things makes people mad, but it's very effective
Journeyer's Kite(ramp) - slower than rocks, but more reliable, a slow and steady way to get mana
Brass's Bounty(ramp) - only good if you need a lot of mana one time
Chain Reaction(mass removal) - board dependent, and kills narset, sometimes you need more wraths
Day of Judgment(mass removal) - very strong
Final Judgment(mass removal) - against some decks destroying all creatures isn't enough, exiling is
_LANDS(can be boring, but are often a big part of how your deck performs): _
Command Tower - Must have in three colors
Mystic Monastery - Tapped lands aren't great, tri-color tap lands in your color are
Rogue's Passage(unblockable) - Being colorless is bad, being unblockable is good
not so cheap$$(around three or more dollars):
Path to Exile(removal) - a second StP, not all decks need it, but it is strong
Darksteel Plate(protection) - keeps your commander safer, isn't super powerful, cheap equip
Rite of Replication(wincon, value) - You still have to pay the kicker but this card is incredible
Waves of Aggression(extra combats) - take extra combats, plus you can play it from the graveyard
Wrath of God(mass removal) - it's the best, but day of judgment is as good 99% of the time
Austere Command(mass removal) - hit's only what you need it to hit, can ignore narset if necessary
Cyclonic Rift(mass removal) - one sided, but you have to pay for the kicker with narset, still can steal games
Blasphemous Act(mass removal) - often one mana

Loonmoon18Thank you for your comment, you are totally right. How many lands would you recommend? Also, I just bought a Chromatic Lantern to put in and that should help as well. After reading your comment, I'm thinking of going to 36 lands. I'll add Mystic Monastery, Shivan Reef, and Adarkar Wastes. Do you know of any others that are good for fixing that won't break the bank?

Holy crap this deck is almost exactly like mine 2 months ago...
Anyways here is a few suggestions
Cards to take out: Baleful Strix Chief Engineer Phyrexian Arena Mystic Monastery Nomad Outpost Arcane Sanctum Evolving Wilds Painful Truths Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Fact or Fiction Terramorphic Expanse
Some of these suggestions probably look weird to you...
For creatures: my suggestions are purely value creatures, but your creatures just aren't good enough because with Strix it is too mana entensive and with Chief you don't have enough creatures and Slobad isn't good because you aren't playing eggs or a deck that can effectively use his sac ability... this means that you are purely using his ability to protect your stuff.
For lands: tap lands just aren't good enough and evolving wilds isn't good enough either... having things come in tapped is terrible.
For everything else there is better stuff around for you to put in instead
One of the things about your deck is that it doesn't use the graveyard to its fullest extent. Artifacts are one of the best archetypes to abuse the graveyard and Scrap Trawler is another screw up that WOTC printed. If you add cards like Chromatic Star or Ichor Wellspring you are effectively dig through your entire deck with just Krark-Clan Ironworks. Self mill is an incredibly powerful thing to do in this game, cards like Yawgmoth's Will or even Scrap Trawler are some of the most degenerate things in the game. Because your graveyard effectively becomes your hand. And you don't really have to do much more to your deck to abuse these effects.
Another thing your deck isn't doing is abusing wheel effects, you have Notion Thief and Windfall should just make you win. You also really need to put in Isochron Scepter Because it is such a utility engine and another wincon for you deck to easily put in. And just put in Ad Nauseam while your curve is pretty high, drawing 10 cards at instant speed still wins you the game. You should also be playing Paradox Engine it will make you randomly win as it is basically a Omniscience but 5 mana and artifacts can generally abuse it.

Well at a glance I can see that you have only two creatures below 4 CMC and they're Birds of Paradise and Urborg Elf, so depending on what kind of decks you play against, that might be an issue.
Is mana/ramp/color fixing a problem you encounter? The three-color tap lands (Jungle Shrine, Mystic Monastery, etc. might be good for you, or perhaps the lairs (Rith's Grove, Treva's Ruins, etc.). Sylvan Caryatid is better than Urborg Elf in that respect. Commander's Sphere is mana and card draw. Oh, Command Tower will help. There's also Cultivate and Rampant Growth, for more Kodama's Reach-type effects.
Also, in 5 colors you have access to all the awesome modal charms like Boros Charm and Naya Charm and Bant Charm (obviously there's a lot of options, but those are some good ones for starters). They offer utility in a very flexible way.
You've got a bunch of cards that kind of want an to do different things. I'd suggest taking a look at what you want your deck's win condition to be and tailor it a bit more towards achieving it specifically. For example, is Revel in Riches an important part of your strategy, because if you aren't going specifically for treasures, there's better ways of fixing your mana. I realize you also have Hellkite Tyrant, so if you play against a lot of Pirate decks, that might actually be a pretty ok strategy.
By the way, your list currently has 2 Cyclonic Rifts.
