"none of the broken barf-your-cards-everywhere that elves can do, for example" On this I actually agree haha.

But to be more specific, both Crypt Sliver and Crystalline Sliver are non-modern, and the Modern Slivers there are to take the place of these are Poultice Sliver and Opaline Sliver, which are pretty straightforwardly worse, and play a huge role in their susceptibility to removal. In fact I dare say that the removal that was around back in those days, Terror, was actually better against them than any of the removal you listed due to the anti-regeneration clause. But that still wasn't enough. Combined with the likes of Magma Sliver, Quick Sliver, Root Sliver, Shifting Sliver, Sliver Overlord, and Sliver Queen and I'd say I have a pretty succinct list of horrors hiding in un-modern-legal slivers, which makes them the object of such fear.

There is a distinct reason that if somebody walks into an EDH game and starts off by revealing a Sliver Queen as their commander, the game starts as Xv1 instead of the usual free-for-all. And that's in a format where they less reliably get the effects they want. Even if she's a "tier 2" commander, and a lot of things in EDH can snowball out of control, it's just what slivers do. They don't need specific combos, it just happens.

There's not much I can say about Inquisition/Thoughtseize effects. I fully acknowledge that the pool of cards has grown stronger, and these are a great example of that. But slivers always were extremely resilient, and I feel as though the lack of some of these key pieces severely hampers their viability in Modern. Moreso than just the strength of the card pool. Honestly just the fact that they're Tier 2 in EDH tells me there has to be more to it than card pool.

I would have suggested Clot Sliver or Crypt Sliver to deal with the Angler, but you don't seem to be running black. Poultice Sliver is a three drop though, but is in color with the rest of the deck.

In response to Ulamog's Crusher, there's not much I can say. You can try to race them, or take the 2 sacrifices, then gang up on the crusher with multiple blockers.

let's start by removing the following for some of my previously suggested cards

This includes cards like Crypt Sliver, Poultice Sliver, and possibly Clot Sliver. Regenerate is not a very strong mechanic that takes up a valuable slot in the 99 that could be used for better cards like Obelisk of Urd, Door of Destinies, and Coat of Arms
These could be used for better cards when your commander is a tutor, and if you really want to fetch any creature, run Conspiracy, it's in your colors and makes every creature in your deck a sliver as well as turning certain cards like Mistform Warchief into constant slivers. Tooth and Nail would be fine to stay because it has that alternative mode to get out free slivers. However definitely take out Signal the Clans, it's trash in this deck.
When your tribe is one of the most common tribes in EDH, this card becomes god-awful. This slot would be much more useful if it was something like Spear of Heliod, Glorious Anthem, or hell, even Always Watching . Brass Herald (yes again) would even be better despite being 3x as expensive mana-wise.
Lastly, I realize the rest of the comment was in accordion form, but this is important, INCLUDE Call to the Kindred!!!!!

Poultice Sliver is great in any sliver deck I might throw in a couple in place of Travel Preparations and some other card

No data for this card yet.
