In the same vein, Mirari's Wake really helps to ramp up, both your mana base and your creatures.
Herald's Horn lowers the cost of your Slivers and provides repeatable draw. Very useful.
Phyrexian Reclamation is a repeatable way to return cards from your graveyard.
Paradox Engine gives you essentially an unlimited combo with Sliver Overlord, letting you put all of the Slivers in your entire library into play if you've got Manaweft Sliver/Gemhide Sliver/Cryptolith Rite in play. Even if you don't have the combo pieces in play, it can provide a ton of value.
I too play a Sliver EDH deck, so these are some suggestions that I've learned from experience can be rather powerful.

They tie closely together because they go on the stack at the same time, so as long as a Goblin is a 2/2 or less before attackers are declared, it doesn't matter if you attack with 20 Goblins and each one is a 21/2 because of Shared Animosity, Raid Bombardment still procs as well because at the time the trigger resolves Shared Animosity hadn't. To make sure I hit the hardest I can, I have sometimes sacrificed a Goblin Chieftain or a Goblin King to make sure Bombardment gets to proc. Even if I get chump blocked or fogged I still get a lot of damage through. The fact that we get another lord, and he can sacrifice himself to himself to make sure I get under the threshold for Raid Bombardment is fantastic. I still can't get over how good these two new Goblins are!
Unfortunately I don't have any recordings of this in action, although I've always wanted to get it going on MTGO. I do have a GoPro though, so maybe I can convince some of my friends to play a game with me.

Another great new M19 card with:
Not only is it a lord, but also has a non-tap sacrifice ability, but it can also get rid of itself to get tokens back under the threshold for Shared Animosity, and it is recurrable. Just a really solid card.
This will be taking place of Shattering Spree in my deck.

Cool deck! I play an Edgar Markov deck myself, it’s probably my main deck, so I’ve got plenty of suggestions but before I get to that I wanted to say that I like this deck.
Firstly, while Door of Destinies can be absolutely amazing in the right circumstances (you get it out early and have plenty of vamps to follow it up with) if you get it any other time it’s just not very good. It needs you to have gas in your hand once it comes down and you never want to draw this late in the game, since it doesn’t have any effect on your boardstate immediately on hitting the field. One potential replacement is Shared Animosity. It costs 1 less to cast and it has an immediate effect, and it is very very strong in this deck. Coat of Arms is also super strong here but that one depends on your meta; if you have lots of other tribal decks around it may not be worth running it, since it’ll help all of them as well. If not, or if you think that it’ll benefit you more than them most of the time, it’s absolutely worth putting in.
A couple other cards I’d say you should drop are Licia, Sanguine Tribune and Mathas, Fiend Seeker. They’re both good cards, but there are much better options for this type of deck. Licia depends too much on lifegain to be consistently effective (which, admittedly, there will be a fair bit of in a vampire tribal deck) and Mathas doesn’t really fit with the aggressive swarm theme of the deck.
A few other vampires I personally dislike are Pawn of Ulamog, Sangromancer, Balustrade Spy, and Bloodhusk Ritualist. Pawn of Ulamog is alright, but there will probably be more tokens than non-tokens and there are just better things to include here. I took much of the lifegain out of my deck (personal preference really, it doesn’t seem to work as well as pure aggro for me) so Sangromancer came out of mine for that reason. Balustrade Spy costs too much for what it does; 4 mana for a 2/3 flyer isn’t great plus it’s ability doesn’t really synergize with the deck as a whole, and there are better inclusions. Bloodhusk Ritualist just doesn’t seem very good to me; sure it’s a decent mana sink late game, but besides that it doesn’t seem to do much. I much prefer Mirror Entity as a mana sink if that’s what the Ritualist is for; it is technically a vampire and it can pump your whole team a ridiculous amount, which is really what the deck wants.
Another thing decks like this want is consistent card draw. You’ve already got Twilight Prophet, which is good, but in my experience you need more than that. My deck historically had problems drawing cards and I was basically playing off the top of my deck, which is far from ideal. I’d recommend you add some more cards like Champion of Dusk, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, or Greed. These are very strong and consistent card draw options, and since you’re in vampire tribal and have a basically guaranteed lifegain subtheme it helps mitigate the life loss from these (which is worth paying anyway).
Also, I’m not really sure why Ghostly Prison is in here; it doesn’t synergize at all with the deck and doesn’t make much sense to me.
As for cards to add, there are tons of great options to choose from. Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief are both good; Viscera Seer is one of the bests one drops in this deck by far; Indulgent Aristocrat is another amazing one drop; Legion Lieutenant is a good, cheap vampire lord; Sanctum Seeker basically is your deck in one card, since he hits your opponents super hard every time your army attacks as well as gaining you a whole bunch of life; Stensia Masquerade is a very good anthem-type effect; Terminate, Anguished Unmaking, and Utter End are all amazing spot removal cards; and there are plenty of other great cards I can’t remember right this second.
Sorry about the wall of text, but these are some suggestions for your deck based on my own experience with Edgar Markov. Whether or not you make these changes is up to you of course. Here’s my deck if you’re interested; you may find other things I forgot to mention in there that you may want to put in your deck: Edgar Markov tokens.

Looks like a fun deck, maybe Cloud Key or Urza's Incubator could be good for some cost reduction. Cryptic Gateway could potentially be good for cheating stuff out sometimes at the end of your opponent's turn Belbe's Portal is good for cheating stuff out too. Konda's Banner could be pretty good Kindred Charge and Kindred Boon could both be pretty good. Path of Ancestry is worth putting in there instead of Boros Guildgate. Shared Animosity and Shared Triumph are both fun, also Gratuitous Violence would be good in here. All in all, I like the deck! Was thinking about building something with those two as well. +1 hope my suggestions are helpful :)

Ogre Battledriver with mary out has given me the ability to just dump all my mana into tokens (pending mary size) and generate an army of 3/1 haste dorks.
one turn I had a 5/5 mary, Shared Animosity and this guy out. turned mary into tokens, those tokens came in as 3/1'2 and became 7/1s when they attacked. felt amazing and essentially one shotted the control mage at the table
(noting my favorite new synergies to justify cuts and get started on the primer)

Najeela is super sweet. My roommate recently built a deck that doesn't emphasize her activated ability, but it still has some good warrior options.
One thing I notice immediately is that your mana curve is relatively high. If you have enough low-cost creatures for it be worth it, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can be warrior-based recursion. Aven Wind Guide boosts Najeela's tokens, literally. Brighthearth Banneret is great Warrior ramp. Did you know Champion of Lambholt is a warrior? Also Mindblade Render, Rushblade Commander, and definitely Thrasher Brute from Battlebond.
You don't have any enchantment/artifact removal, so I'd suggest adding a Nature's Claim or even Aura Shards. Honestly, I don't think Insidious Will or Settle the Wreckage are necessary. The deck isn't trying to be a control deck and with all the ways to give your chump blockers vigilance, being attacked isn't a problem.
Aggravated Assault is unnecessary. Bear Umbra only works on the one creature it's attached to. Consider Beastmaster Ascension, Fervor, Intangible Virtue, Parallel Lives, and the "safe" Coat of Arms, Shared Animosity.
Skyshroud Claim isn't good in a 5 color deck and Genesis Wave isn't what the deck is wanting to do. Consider Harvest Season for ramp and things like Blasphemous Act, Dreadbore, and Hull Breach for more removal.
I don't love Hazezon Tamar because he's so slow and also cost-prohibitive for most people. Dakkon Blackblade isn't worth his mana cost compared to other warrior options you have available. I'm not a fan of using the experience counter commanders in the 99 (Ezuri) because they never seem impactful enough while they're around. I think there's better/cheaper options to replace Jazal that aren't so white heavy. Rubblebelt Raiders only benefits itself.
To summarize: make the deck more synergistic with warriors that support all warriors rather than just themselves, add more card draw, add more removal, focus on the goal of the deck.

@DarkerThan13lack that's right. "Although the tokens created by Najeela’s first ability are attacking, they were never declared as attacking creatures (for the purposes of abilities that trigger whenever a creature attacks, for example)."
Those tokens don't trigger Druids' Repository, Grand Warlord Radha or Shared Animosity. However, since they are attacking when Shared Animosity's ability resolves, they do count for the bonus the other creatures get.
