marowakcity: unless Sliver Hive counts as a rainbow land, then my version of 5c slivers doesn't run any. but even if it does count, it should be noted that even if i don't draw it, I very rarely have color issues.
gbugtfh: your deck is currently 67 cards. cut it down to 60, and don't use a full playset of any sliver whose effect does not stack. an example would be Quilled Sliver. another pro-tip is that Phantasmal Image can be utilized to become an extra sliver body and copy stackable effects such as Predatory Sliver and Diffusion Sliver. Aether Vial and Collected Company help immensely, but even a single Aether Vial will cost you the $35 you were hoping to keep the deck under.

um Concerted Effort feels mandatory here,Cairn Wanderer feels especially powerful, Bone Picker isnt bad, and Vampire Cutthroat is worth a look especially with all your creatures having low power to compensate for keywords at low cmcs.

ZendikariWol I would side in for 4x Harmonic Sliver for Tron- for Burn I would probably side in for a total of 3x Syphon Sliver, 3x Diffusion, & 2x Quilled Sliver. I didn't include a sideboard here, though, since this deck is meant more for casual play than competitive, & I usually don't do sideboards when playing at home or in casual play at a shop, unless it's a tournament.

Icbrgr, thanks for the comment and +1, the hive appreciates it. The combo potential of Venom Sliver is great, as Deathtouch is just a wonderful ability. Quilled Sliver's ability is also great, but it does leave much to be desired. The strict stipulation of having to target an attacking or blocking creature really limits the combo's viability. A similar Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver is also pretty lackluster. I wish for I could get a slightly improved Psionic Sliver. It's design simply falls short of a Prodigal Sorcerer, which I believe it's supposed to be, but a Sliver. Quilled Sliver isn't bad, but its not optimized.

I have a sliver deck as well & will make a few suggestions if i may? Crystalline Sliver is by far the best sliver ever printed, imo, but he is not legal in Modern- & the next best thing is Diffusion Sliver! Diffusion Sliver &/or Opaline Sliver are crucial to playing slivers, since targeted removal is a sliver-deck's greatest enemy.. & unlike many sliver-abilities, their abilities actually stack, so with 2 Diffusion Slivers in play, a Path to Exile or Fatal Push or Lightning Bolt would cost FIVE mana just to take out one of your slivers.. I see you have 2 Diffusion Sliver, but since he is so important to keep your engine going, i personally prefer to run 3 of them (they are not aggressive enough to run 4x though, imo). Sentinel Sliver is amazing, & i would recommend 2x in every sliver deck! You can even attack, then use tapping abilities during 2nd Main Phase, effectively giving you a 2nd turn in comparison to running without him. Megantic Sliver is a total game-changer, and i have found 2x Megantic to be very very good. I run 4x Manaweft to be able to cast him, though, plus 1x Gemhide Sliver. Groundshaker Sliver is pretty bad.. I think Battering Sliver is actually better, but he is pretty bad too, imo.. I would cut them in fvor of Megantic Sliver. For a mana-base, 4x Sliver Hive is worth every penny, and 4 Ancient Ziggurat is nearly the same thing for about $1 (that is if you cut some of the sorceries, which i would personally cut all of them in favor of more slivers!). I think Spinneret Sliver is pretty terrible when you could be running Galerider Sliver as a 1-drop with a better ability. Predatory Sliver should be a 4-of, as should Sinew Sliver, which i am surprised to not see here. With 4x Venom Sliver, i would definitely recommend running at least 2x each of Striking Sliver & Bonescythe Sliver!! Another good card to run with the deathtouch is Quilled Sliver, though i wouldn't run more than 1-2 since his targets are limited to attacking/blocking creatures. Blur Sliver is ok, but i have found that cutting him is better- by the time you cast him, you should have other slivers in play, and every single sliver gives its ability to every other sliver, with or without the haste. I would rather give the slivers already in play more abilities instead of giving the cards yet to be played the ability to do the SAME THING as all the other slivers one turn earlier . Since it doesn't help with Predatory/Sinew's ability, i would cut Hardened Scales in favor of something like Collected Company. Harmonic Sliver is a must-have sideboard card, and i run 1x in my mainboard as well. Remember that Virulent Sliver has POISONOUS 1, not Infect- what this means is that your pump spells don't add any additional poison counters to your opponent; each sliver will only give them one poison counter when it connects (unless the pump is from Double Strike! More reason to play Bonescythe Sliver! That would double the poison counters as well). Anyways, sorry for the rant, but hopefully I've given you some ideas! I love slivers!! A couple more fun slivers as 1-ofs are Pulmonic Sliver and Telekinetic Sliver.. so many awesome abilities! Check out my Slivershod deck! My nephew played my Sliver deck against me with my Zombie deck and ended up swinging at me with 150+ damage at once, with Flying, Deathtouch, Double Strike, Lifelink, Indestructible, & a Diffusion Sliver!! That just shows how insanely out of hand they can get if they go un-checked. Good luck!
