Hello! Edgar Markov is the best Vampire commander. Good choice. But why did you exclude Blade of the Bloodchief? I think it works well in Vampire builds. I also think you need more token generators like Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Grim Nemesis. And something to boost your Vampires. For example: Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Vanquisher's Banner, Obelisk of Urd etc. And don't forget about board wipes. I see Merciless Eviction here but I also recommend to think about Wrath of God, Day of Judgment and/or Damnation. Good luck!

Gravecrawler, Death Baron, Obelisk of Urd, Call to the Grave, Raving Dead, Zombie Master, Rite of Replication.

Runed Stalactite makes your boss a zombie for zombie bonuses.

Your zombies will die. Your boss can bring back zombies. You have to protect your boss in case of multiple exiles. Alexi's Cloak effectively counters whatever was going to kill him then gives him shroud. Neurok Stealthsuit can do the same. Swiftfoot Boots etc.

No Rest for the Wicked and Wail of the Nim protect from board wipes (mostly saving your boss so he has mana to bring back a couple creatures instead of being recast).

Does that planeswalker actually help?

I recommend narrowing in on a strategy that spiders fit into. On one hand, you could go farther in on the Assault Formation plan with cards like Tower Defense, Kin-Tree Invocation, and Sheltering Word. There's also the option of playing more with the graveyard using Nyx Weaver, Spider Spawning, and other self-mill. Either way, I'd consider adding in ways to benefit from going tribal. Metallic Mimic, Obelisk of Urd, Door of Destinies, and Adaptive Automaton come to mind. As for spider lords, Ishkanah, Grafwidow is an obvious choice.

I assume, at least at the moment, that this is a budget build. So my suggestions will attempt to be budget friendly.

Sliver Hive and Hive Stirrings would likely be welcome additions to your list here. Path of Ancestry is also really good for tribal decks that go creature heavy. Additionally, Sylvan Scrying and Expedition Map are both very good mana-fixers in terms of land-fetching (also, on a budget, cards like Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, and Crop Rotation, especially for a five color deck, can be very good). Stoneforge Masterwork, Obelisk of Urd, and Door of Destinies are also all relatively budget friendly tribal cards.

There are obviously some more expensive cards that you could dip into, such as Cavern of Souls (and similar non-budget lands), Urza's Incubator, Herald's Horn, Coat of Arms, Training Grounds (if you decided to have Sliver Overlord for your commander), not to mention other good sliver creatures such as Galerider Sliver, Sliver Overlord, Sliver Queen, and Sliver Legion.

This is far from a complete list. That being said, there are a ton of different Sliver tribal EDH decks out there -- you should check them out and see what kinds of cards, interactions, and combos they run. Good luck!

Ok some more here you go The Immortal Sun I know it only gives +1/+1 but you get to draw an extra card and it cost 6 and it basically does what Obelisk of Urd+Pearl Medallion does combined and so 6 total mana vs 8 and one card vs two oh and you get to shut down pesky planeswalkers. That allows you to add another creature back to your deck. I also do not think you need Darksteel Ingot + Manalith + Marble Diamond that is three cards cost 8 mana and you are single mana build and you only get three mana in return vs one card 5 mana to get down but 3 mana per tap and it can be white Gilded Lotus and now you can add 2 more creatures back in your deck or creatures and some equipment if you want.

Thanks for the suggestions, and the upvotes Goronagar! I'll add Shared Animosity. Generally I don't like Coat of Arms very much, although the effect is very good it does also tend to help my opponents quite a bit, and I'm trying to not really use the mass-buff artifacts, such as that, Door of Destinies, or Obelisk of Urd, as I just want to keep it more creature-heavy for the eminence effect.

Ideas:

+Urza's Incubator - cheeper minotaurs

+Fervor - haste for all

+Living Death - protection against board wipes

+Lightning Greaves - protection and haste

+Sign in Blood/card draw in general

+Phyrexian Arena - card draw!

+Rakdos Charm - just a good card

+Gratuitous Violence - dmg incorporated.

+Anthem of Rakdos - dmg incorporated.

+Furnace of Rath - dmg incorporated.

+Havoc Festival - dmg incorporated. Plus the most Rakdos card

+Mana Flare - speed things up a bit

+Greed - more card draw

+Pain Magnification - could be good for keeping 0 cards in their hands

+Shared Animosity - can be super strong

Traps:

-Black Sun's Zenith -expensive

-Cut // Ribbons - expensive

-Torment of Hailfire - expensive

-Ifnir Deadlands - I just don't get why its here, a swamp seems better

Cards to look into removing:

-Aether Vial - seems almost slow? Just doesn't fit in with the deck, but by all means, test it and see where it goes! Having fun with the cards is the most important part anyway.

-Azor's Gateway  Flip - also doesn't quite fit, but maybe? I've never personally played with the card.

-Obelisk of Urd - another one to playtest, I've thought it wasn't good enough in my tribal decks to get a spot

-Trepanation Blade - Very random card. Very random. I don't know what to think. Probably very good, though.

-Consuming Vapors - Don't quite get it, but might be a good way to gain life. Seems dependent on your playgroup.

-Impale, may I introduce you to murder?

-In Garruk's Wake - very expensive

I don't think Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask are going to be good in the deck. I would not add them.

Silence the Believers will be too slow.

Maybe board:

-Cruel Reality: Just a trap, you have much better cards and it is extremely expensive.

-Dictate of Erebos: Maybe? I think you have better options

-Black Sun's Zenith: Maybe not. Has a much better place with Cabal Coffers.

-Cut // Ribbons: Nope. See above.

+Flurry of Horns :)

-Firestorm: too expensive IRL

+All the minotaurs, they're minotaurs?

I don't think Breath of Fury and Nemesis Mask are going to be good in the deck. I would not add them.

Silence the Believers will be too slow.

Sorry about the formatting, it hates me sometimes.
