Cool deck Idea, for the sideboard, to make things more simple, I would jut have like 40 Ruination Guide, and 20+ Reality Smasher or Eldrazi Aggressor (budget), for a bunch of hasty 45/5's, also if have the mana to activate spawnsires ability then you probably have enough to fuel 10 Eldrazi Obligator as well and beat people with a sort of insurrection effect

Ulamog's brood is: Benthic Infiltrator, Conduit of Ruin, Cryptic Cruiser, Drowner of Hope (as it is said in many places that Ulamogs brood moves through water easily.), Eyeless Watcher, Oblivion Sower, Ruination Guide, Vile Aggregate. and Wasteland Strangler (look to the left of the creature and you can see it's mask), I am also fairly certain that Brood Butcher is a part of Ulamogs brood as well.

Kozilek's lineage is: Dimensional Infiltrator, Immobilizer Eldrazi(note the eyes), Slaughter Drone(also has eyes on joints), Stalking Drone, and Walker of the Wastes.

Nest Invader is the only member of Emrakul's brood in the list here.

This deck should be in the legacy, vintage or casual hubs.

Ruination Guide isn't the best win condition for control, and neither is Archive Trap or Millstone. I would recommend Consecrated Sphinx, Vedalken Shackles, or even just Elixir of Immortality to keep reshuffling your deck in so your opponent decks themselves.

I think you should run more card draw. I would add Remand as a cheap counterspell that cantrips and probably Serum Visions.

I'm glad your getting back into MTG!

Hey Pozo2212, so uh...I have to say that your deck description looks rather might've come from somewhere else? I'll just take the rather "inspired" description as a compliment, but you could give some credit where credit is due :P Anywho, as for your deck itself, it is similar to my own, but at the same time distinctly different. I'll break my thoughts down into little bullets:

  • Cost: So you're pursuing original dual lands as well as the absolutely degenerate Gaea's Cradle? Wow. Well done. That's effectively an ideal manabase - as slivers don't function as well without access to WUBURG at any given moment. That already sets your deck leagues above most, placing it squarely within the competitive realm of EDH.

  • Creatures: Interesting choice including Eldrazi along with slivers. I'm genuinely surprised you don't have Ghostflame Sliver though. That'll make all your slivers immune to All Is Dust, and creates additional synergies with various eldrazi spells. With Ghostflame in play, consider of the following Eldrazi options:

  • Forerunner of Slaughter - A haste option for your colorless slivers

  • Ruination Guide - an "Anthem Sliver"

  • Vile Aggregate - a less powerful but viable Sliver Legion

The previous suggestions should be taken worth a grain of salt because they're all a bit janky as their viability are entirely reliant on just one creature, but it'd be interesting none the less. But if you want to be even more competetive, then maybe going with Sliver Queen as your commander would be the better route.

I knew that Drowner was a bit of a stretch though I still wanted to mention it.

Ruination Guide though seems a bit out of place. I feel like it does not contribute to the goal of the deck, which is to get Spawnsire of Ulamog down on the field and 'ultimating'. If you went for the Scion beatdown, maybe. So Eldrazi Skyspawner could take its place. It is a flyer, can put some pressure/chump and get you a Scion for mana.

I'd probably replace Privileged Position for Cryptolith Rite since hexproof on a wideboard isn't that necessary. Indestructible from Eldrazi Monument protect from boardwipe. You might not need 4 Rite either.

Sorry to be that guy, but Grixis is what you're running instead of Temur. On to the deck, I am a fan of eldrazi aggro, but I feel like a full set of Reality Smasher really tops your curve out nicely with an effective threat that is difficult to remove. I would personally take out 2 Ruination Guide for them. Also gives you a bit more oomph with Eldrazi Mimic.In your sideboard, I would not add any creatures unless you think they are extremely necessary. Mostly, you should include a better arrange of non-creature spells. Negate or counterspells would be necessary to have, as well as more efficient removal. You currently do not line up well against planeswalkers, and both Negate or Ruinous Path could help, perhaps even a To the Slaughter. Like the deck!

That's what I was thinking. I'm experimenting with Ornithopter. The flying and it being colorless hopefully can synergize with the Ruination Guides and Molten Nurserys.
