I swear, you and I are twins in terms of our experiences with magic. Back in high school I started playing magic around the onslaught block (or shortly before it). I had friends who bought boxes and sold the packs at school, and my mom was awesome enough to give me a couple extra bucks to help pay for my new addic-er...habit lol. My second deck was a crappy monoblue wizards deck...Prodigal Sorcerer + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter was my wincon. BUT when I faced slivers for the first time during Legion...my mind was completely blown. I knew I had to play them. During college I collected them through various trades. I'm -still- kicking myself for not trading for a foil Sliver Legion. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20 huh? I too made an incredibly overpriced sliver deck...but what's weird is just how similar...and different our choices are.
+1 on principle. Long live the hive and all that. I'm still analyzing your deck, because you put far more ramp in your lands than I did. I rely more heavily on control, ramp and rocks. My only suggestions for a replacement would be swapping out Farseek for Nature's Lore. I'd prefer to have that one mana free to perhaps cast something else on that turn. But that's just my opinion. Also, why don't you have Gaea's Cradle not in here? It'd be perfect lol. By the way, i'm so jelly of your DCI promo Crucible of Worlds. Are you a judge? Or did you actually shell out the cash to buy that bad boy?

Totally understand! Im glad you got a chuckle from the jank lol.
I made a few brews trying to break panharmonicon. A long time ago i made a Tim (Prodigal Sorcerer) deck. So when i saw pan and Quicksmith Rebel i attempted some silliness based around that! Tim 2.0. Panharmonicon+Quicksmith Rebel+Narnam Cobra...supported with Blossoming Defense and Heroic Intervention. It was a ton of fun to play and beat mardu relentlessly. Also had a hidden theme with Metalwork Colossus.
This standard is excellent for homebrew stuff. Did you ever play against infinite whales? Lol. Best Quote for MTG i have ever heard came from that deck... the fuy said I attack you for an unneccessarily high amount of infinite damage, GG

I have some questions about some of the synergies though. Doesn't it seem redundant to target a creature using Cyclonic Rift + Cowardice? I mean...you're going to return target permanent anyway. Also, your wincon doesn't have much redundancy. If you're going to constantly be dealing damage via cards in hand, why don't you include The Rack as well? Additionally, you may not have enough counter spells to remove every single creature on the board. Have you considered cards like Propaganda? Now, take this worth a grain of salt, but maybe you could consider incorporating cards like Prodigal Sorcerer + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter? While it is a reliable wincon it also feeds into your deck's strategy. Especially Sorcerer.
Overall, your strategy of constant board disruption seems like a good way to keep the pressure up on the opponent. I can't wait to see how this deck evolves further.

Long story, and I apologize in advance...
Initially, I thought I was merely a tribal player when I built my 2nd deck in magic - Mono tribal Wizards. I started around Apocalypse, but didn't really get into the full swing of things until Onslaught. I was in love with , specifically the Counterspell spell. The ability to just tell people "no" felt so good. With some help from my friends I built this awful Wizards tribal deck that ran on Prodigal Sorcerer + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter. My friend traded me a Force of Will for some Fetchlands.
Then Legions came out...and I saw them for the first time - Slivers. My true form, and tribe. Their look, their presence, everything about them were simply overwhelming. I just couldn't really process them to be honest. I didn't have the best understanding of all the rules then, so...when I saw Root Sliver I was just dumbfounded. Years later around Futuresight I just started collecting Slivers feverishly. I had traded for multiple Sliver Queens (my favorite card) and all the other one clawed critters I could get my hands on and I built my one TRUE deck. The deck that represents me on the battlefield.
My wife, my true Queen even contributed...and bought me a custom hand made deckbox that resembles a Sliver Queen's Egg. If we're going by magic lore, and we as players are all Planeswalkers...then I am definitely a Legendary Sliver.
How do you find the right deck for you? Well...you just have to see someone else play it. You have to get an idea of the mechanics, the form, the function. It may enthrall you, hold your curiosity...but what's most important is you seeing yourself playing this for a long time. Finding little ways to tweak and experiment with it. Making it better...making it more and more unique to you. So long as you have the desire to make it better, it'll be your deck.

Alright, time to make it budget. I can probably take out Phelddagrif as he doesn't help the deck and is a little expensive. His questing cousin, here just for flavor, can go too. As mentionned, Rubinia Soulsinger would fit the deck better as a commander anyway; she's also under a dollar, which is a plus.Chasm Skulker would be the next to go - he's nice if we get draws but we don't really need big creatures (if we do we can take them with Rubinia).The one I am torn about is Luminarch Ascension. It is super expensive considering we need an average card cost of 0.50$, but it is super aligned with what we want to do. We have to find another win condition as we cannot rely on Azor's Elocutors alone.Here, BudgetMTGDecks helps us again with a nice infinite damage combo in blue: using Aphetto Alchemist as an untap engine with Illusionist's Bracers and Prodigal Sorcerer is a nice way to win and takes the 3 spots we just freed so there we go.-Phelddagrif-Questing Phelddagrif-Chasm Skulker-Luminarch Ascension+Rubinia Soulsinger+Aphetto Alchemist+Illusionist's Bracers+Prodigal Sorcerer

thoughts on Prodigal Sorcerer as an infinite damage win con with dramatic scepter combo?
