Thing is, with Sliver Overlord on the table you can tutor for Sliver Hivelord whenever you need it. If you're worried about getting the appropriate mana, remove some slivers in favor of:

Also, I would recommend Descendants' Path to get Slivers on the battlefield for free.

Good luck!

Cryptolith Rite is a pretty solid way to shore up your mana, basically copy 3 of Manaweft Sliver/Gemhide Sliver.

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.

Shared Animosity doesn't affect your opponents creatures, like Coat of Arms does.

Spirit of Resistance works great with 5c commanders. In particular, it's an amazing combo with Sliver Hivelord.

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.

Distant Melody and Wheel of Fortune are such good draw cards that they're hard to pass up.

I too play a Sliver EDH deck, so these are some suggestions that I've learned from experience can be rather powerful.

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. :)

Totally get what you are saying about the Aether Vial and Collected Company, but just do not have the cards at the moment to make that work. The board wipe is there for a reason though...More of a contingency actually. If I am playing a deck that is also a creature heavy deck, providing I have the Sliver Hivelord out, they hopefully lose everything, I lose nothing. I also play a considerable amount of multiplayer, so comes in handy then as well. Thanks for commenting though DankStompy

Here's some land recommendations, because playing 5 colors is hard without the right lands:

Ancient Ziggurat, Command Tower, Crystal Quarry, Frontier Bivouac (run all 10 of the tri-colored tap lands, they're cheap and good), Mystic Monastery, Nomad Outpost, Opulent Palace, Rupture Spire, Sandsteppe Citadel, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel, Shimmering Grotto, Sliver Hive, Transguild Promenade.

You should drop all your basic lands down to 1 of each type. Running 5x Vivid lands and 10x Tri-color lands, and 1 of each basic land takes up 20 land slots. The rest should be land that some how taps for all colors.

I run a pretty low budget Slivers list, with Hivelord as the commander as well. Here's some cards that could up the power level of your deck without crazy monetary investment:

Primal Rage and Shared Triumph offer buffs to all of your Slivers. Spirit of Resistance makes you invincible if you have Sliver Hivelord in play. Unearth is a solid way to return some of your best Slivers to play after removal. Harsh Sustenance is solid removal with the added benefit of life gain. Obelisk of Urd is a good way to pump up your Slivers. Domri Rade is a planeswalker that works really well with Slivers. Gives you consistent removal as well as draw. The ultimate makes it real difficult to lose games.

I run a Sliver Deck as well, it's pretty heavily combo based, the last game I played with it ended with me casting infinite Sliver tokens with Basal Sliver + Sliver Queen + Training Grounds you can check it out here if you want. 5-C Sliver Deck (Slivers: Resistance is Futile)

But, I highly recommend having all of the Sliver Lords in your deck: Sliver Overlord, Sliver Hivelord, Sliver Queen, and Sliver Legion. Furthermore, you should also run Constricting Sliver it's a great choice for control of the board. And, if you do decide to run Sliver Queen then you should also run Necrotic Sliver for complete control of the board. Notice that it says permanent, that includes everything on the board, from planeswalkers to lands.

But, have fun playing!

Solid idea! but need more removal cards than what you have. I put this up against my Sliver EDH deck, and because you only have 3 enchantment removal cards, you never got a chance to take out my Ghostly Prison, And once I got my commander out and pulled out Sliver Hivelord. Which not only can block your commander without losing creatures, You can only attack with a few creatures a turn and won't be able to come back from it.

Also, you need more than 32 land, it's too low of a chance to get a land. Have a great day! :)

Not sure I entierly understand why you are running Sliver Hivelord as your commander. While you have two cards that make all your creatures Slivers (Arcane Adaptation and Conspiracy), your commander is fairly insignificant without these cards in-play.

However, if you wish to stick with this plan, you should include Hivestone, as it gives you the desired effect for two mana. Perhaps add some tutors as well to ensure you can actually find these cards by the time you need them.
