For slivers, you are doing really well. I made a casual deck (click on my name and find it in my decklist(I have made so many prototypes that the current name is forgotten)).

The best way to ensure your mana is to with one color, but I like where you can go with more (like I did). In your post in the deck help, you wanted to ensure you could beat Ulamog's Crusher, and eel the best way is to put play them...unless it's tron, screw tron...atleast in non-casual(may or may not have tron deck). If you can increase your curve, Angelic Edict, Angelic Purge, Death Rattle (reduce with delve), Oblivion Strike (before he attacks), Pillar of Light, ooooo Unmake...that's all that I can think of.

Hope it helps, it sure helped me. Happy Hunting

I totally overlooked Dramatic Rescue (which will be off the table once you remove the blue). Give Smite, Pillar of Light, or Avenging Arrow a shot there if you have any of those.

jonathanveedot You mean Firemantle Mage rather than Flameshadow Conjuring, right?

Also, I believe Path to Exile may be a better removal against Eldrazi than Lightning Bolt. A couple of other spells that may help get rid of the bigger Eldrazis creatures are Abzan Charm (comes later, but is quite flexible. Also requires an adjusted manabase), Intrepid Hero, Hidden Dragonslayer and Big Game Hunter (of which the last one seems most appealing, as he has his effect off og CoCo), Pillar of Light, Reprisal and possibly Selesnya Charm. Valorous Stance might also work. Most of these cards do less against other matchups though, so maybe only the versatile ones are considerable.

I believe in the end it comes down to being able to retain critical mass while gaining evasion (Firemantle Mage) or enough stats to be able to force suboptimal blocks by them (Akoum Battlesinger + Kor Bladewhirl). Alternatively, a somewhat midrangey deck might work out actually, though I also am not quite sure how that may work out. Should longer game plans work out though, cards like Doubling Chant, Lead the Stampede and Rally the Ancestors might partially replace CoCo.
