Manaweft Sliver is a lot better than Birds of Paradise becuase it gives all your slivers the ability to tap for mana, and Virulent Sliver is insanly good no matter what, making games shorter, Shifting Sliver and Crystalline Sliver are just overpowered, Ancient Ziggurat and Unclaimed Territory are really good lands, maybe include a Door of Destinies and a Beastmaster Ascension too. Also if i were you id include some larger slivers for some good late game boosts, like Megantic Sliver or Constricting Sliver , also either a Sliver Overlord or a Homing Sliver to get what slivers you need

As I mentioned on your thread, and as alias42 mentioned above, this deck does not meet the requirements for Standard, for which you currently have it labeled. Upon closer inspection, it does not seem to be Modern-legal either, though you can probably make it Modern-legal with a few changes. Specificall, Heart Sliver and Shifting Sliver are not Modern-legal. There might be others, but those are the two that immediately jump out at me.

Some general deckbuilding advise that will apply to all formats:

Lands that enter the battlefield tapped are bad, as they put you a turn behind. Transguild Promenade in particular is awful--not only do you not gain an extra land on the turn you play it, it additionally puts you behind a land.

Slivers are a hyper-aggressive tribe, and you want to maximize this. Focus on slivers with low mana costs and effects that stack, and run four copies of those, then run 2-3 copies of slivers whose abilities do not stack. For example, Predatory Sliver, Sinew Sliver, and Muscle Sliver (not Modern-legal) each give your creatures +1/+1, for the low cost of 2 mana. I'd probably run a full set of 12, (or 8 if you are moving to Modern).

Heart Sliver and Crystalline Sliver (neither are modern-legal) are fantastic, but multiple instances of Haste or Shroud do nothing for you. These are both cards you want to draw exactly one copy of, so running 3 of either should be fine. The one exception to this rule would be Galerider Sliver (which is a strict upgrade to the Winged Sliver you are currently running, and is Modern-legal). Because this costs one mana, you want to maximize your chances of having this in your opening hand, so you at least have something productive to do on turn 1. I'd run four copies.

Personally, I don't think any of the five-mana slivers are worth it in a 60-card constructed deck. You generally have better things to do with your time and mana.

Once you've figured out your format, I can try to give a bit more specific advice on what slivers to run.

Galerider Sliver is good, but it's expensive. Leeching Sliver is another good one, and a good anti-boardwipe one is Pulmonic Sliver. Shadow Sliver is good, since no one uses the shadow mechanic anymore. Another similar one is Shifting Sliver.

I would use Galerider Sliver if your using Winged Sliver same purpose just one mana less.

Paragon of Gathering Mists, Diffusion Sliver, Rattlechains, Shadow Sliver, Shifting Sliver and Kopala, Warden of Waves could help protect your commander and give additional abilities.

Thank you for the feedback!! As for Galerider Sliver, I've went from 2 to 3 and back to 2. There are other answers to aggro decks with flyers, like Telekinetic Sliver, or attacking right back with Syphon Sliver out if Shifting Sliver or Sliver Hivelord is also alongside it. There's also two different tutors, plus Eladamri's Call to go dig for whatever sliver is needed. Your point remains valid though. If I do create a sideboard, I'll certainly add a couple Galeriders to it. :)

Great deck! I tested it against my Sliver EDH deck and it did quite well! I never thought about doing a wither EDH deck, in all honesty forgot about it! Actually taking a note from you and I will be adding Grafted Exoskeleton to my deck. That with my commander Sliver Overlord, It's a lot of poison counters. Also, with Bonescythe Sliver or Hunter Sliver. I can now make them either lose earlier, force an indestructible creature fight it and kill it. Or if Shifting Sliver is in play it's a quick death! Thank you for reminding me! Upvote for you :)
