Legendary Creature — Sliver
Sliver creatures you control have indestructible. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy them.)

Sliver Hivelord Discussion
3 days ago
At a quick glance, you have a better start than when I made mine so good job! I will say get those triple production lands in there, you don't want to be short a certain color ever. Good that you kept some basic lands. Always good to be able to look for them when you need a certain color. Test the deck a bit on here before you buy anything.
I also recently made a sliver deck and you have a lot of them that boost their power and toughness, I can tell you from experience that you don't need so many. You will be better shooting for abilities to counteract what they have. Like if they have flying, cast a flyer. big creatures, cast first strike and deathtouch.
Your board wipes are also expensive to cast, get Sliver Hivelord out early if you're worried then use a card to destroy all creatures. Your slivers will be safe.
Spirit of Resistance is also great with 5 colored decks.
If you need anything else just ask! My sliver deck is also on here and you should check it out! Runs great and is 1/3 the cost of what you are at now. Let me know what you think of it! Sliver EDH
Have a great day! :) sorry for a long post

May I gust suggest using Sliver Overlord as your commander. The ability to search for any sliver, including Sliver Hivelord, means that you would have almost nothing to worry about. I speak from experience, but if what you have works to your satisfaction, by all means, keep it that way.

There's cards with lower casting costs out there for creature board wipes out there. And you can just get Sliver Hivelord into play and then your creatures are just fine. Can look at my sliver deck for some help. But also look at it for any suggestions you have for me! :)

Glad to see your a fan of the wonderous hive also k_drake. I also happen to have a Sliver Overlord deck of my own, although mine is still a lot cheaper. Keep in mind however that LVL_666 has also chosen to bling out this deck nearly entirely, and thus the price you see on here is much more than what it would could actually be with a non-foil, non-masterpiece/expedition version of the decklist.
The first and most obvious things to avoid would be the original duals, (i.e Underground Sea, Volcanic Island, Tropical Island etc...), next you make do without Mana Crypt, Cavern of Souls, Wheel of Fortune, Yawgmoth's Will, and Mana Drain which should bring the deck down by a huge margin.
There's is such a vast amount of lands to choose from that could be suitable early on, including: the vivid cycle (Vivid Crag, Vivid Grove), the tri-lands (Seaside Citadel, Savage Lands, Jungle Shrine, and so on), then there's ones I use to use like Transguild Promenade, Exotic Orchard, Forbidden Orchard, Rupture Spire, Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse, Ash Barrens (highly recommend), and the panorama cycle (Bant Panorama, Jund Panorama, Esper Panorama, etc).
You can then make use out of the signets, Golgari Signet, Izzet Signet, etc) and perhaps use most of the combinations (prioritize the ones that have green). Anyways I know I have told you a Lot of information to read and consider, and so let me give you a good visual of what a starting point could look like:

This deck by the Professor I do recommend you consider as a base, and from there start as I have done, which was slowly acquire all the slivers (and imo minus the queen, and legion at least at first), I actually was quite fortunate to receive most of the slivers needed for my list from a friend who had their very own Sliver Overlord deck and he sold/traded me eventually most of it as he was getting out of commander. I picked up stuff like Gemhide Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Harmonic Sliver, Heart Sliver, Galerider Sliver and Crystalline Sliver if I recall first by cash and standard trades.
Then I got a few things like a Chromatic Lantern, Merciless Eviction, Heartstone, and Training Grounds for more additions. Eventually I started with getting the shocks and fetches (the khans fetches are cheaper) again the cheaper ones like Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills, Temple Garden, Overgrown Tomb, Hallowed Fountain, and worked my way up having more than half of them (I'm currently only missing 3 fetches and 3 shocklands).
I got my Sliver Queen and Sliver Legion from the same friend who took apart his sliver list (it's unfortunate he sold it's entire manabase and then just kept the slivers before I even met him at my lgs though), after I had all the rest of the creatures and up until that point I focused more on an aggro/voltron strategy. I bought him some very pricey modern staples (2x Chalice of the Void before there reprint and traded an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for these 2 slivers and to nearly finish a whole deck to play for modern :)
You can then later like i'm soon about to do myself soon I think, start to buy things like a Mana Crypt, Mana Drain, Demonic Tutor, Wheel of Fortune, etc to make the deck more competitive.To give you an idea where i'm at, here's my decklist (I'm missing 16 cards in all from it) also that's cheaper than what you see here:

I did not exactly plan on writing essentially a book on this for you lol, and so I apoligize. In summary start by acquiring if you don't already own any these above suggested lands, and start acquiring all the slivers you can, I recommend get ones like Sliver Hivelord, Diffusion Sliver and or Crystalline Sliver, Blur Sliver, Gemhide Sliver + Manaweft Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver, Syphon Sliver, Heart Sliver, Harmonic Sliver, Galerider Sliver + Winged Sliver, and others like Predatory Sliver, Sinew Sliver, Muscle Sliver all of which are pretty cheap. Then you will want Chromatic Lantern, plenty of signets, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, maybe the newly reprinted Coalition Relic which is a bit cheaper now. Then start upgrading the manabase(Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Unclaimed Territory, Sliver Hive, Ancient Ziggurat are all a good start. Then go with maybe getting the filterlands which thankfully have been reprinted and are now a lot cheaper,(Flooded Grove, Twilight Mire,...) and the shocks/fetches prioritizing the ones for green like Breeding Pool, Overgrown Tomb, Windswept Heath, Wooded Foothills because you will want green I would say more than any of your colours to cast stuff like Manaweft Sliver + Gemhide Sliver, Kodama's Reach/Rampant Growth/Cultivate etc. Once you have most if not all of the slivers and the mana base then you can go back to refining the deck with medium to high end upgrades like Mana Crypt, Volrath's Stronghold, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Pact of Negation, and such. Personally in my case i'm refraining from the original duels for budget reasons myself as I can't ever see myself getting enough use out of them to make them worth it fully. Anyways I hope this gives you lots to think about!
(Final note), consider Spirit of Resistance at least initially if you think you can either protect it with counterspells or in a meta where enchantment removal won't be an issue :)

Paradox Engine is a must in sliver commander decks, since it pairs so nicely with Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver. You use your slivers to cast a sliver to untap your slivers to play another sliver to untap your slivers to . . . If you have Dormant Sliver in play, you can keep these shenanigans going for quite a while.
I also think you are incorrect about Sliver Overlord vs. Sliver Hivelord--Overlord simply provides a lot more utility as your commander. You can tutor your Hibernation Sliver to make your Dormant Sliver more effective. You can tutor your Hivelord to give your slivers indestructible. You can tutor your Crystalline Sliver if their deck is heavy on removal. You can tutor your Necrotic Sliver if they are about to combo out. You can . . . I think you get the point.

I am actually going to make Sliver Overlord my commander. I think that with Unnatural Selection is going to be a real problem to deal with. As far as what I far as what I will take out to put Sliver Hivelord in the 99? I'm not sure, as I just updated my list again and added more goodies. I also plan on adding a Konda's Banner. So that's 2 cards I have to cut. Welcome to any suggestions though.

Lol don't feel bad, I actually started recommending it earlier but caught myself. People rarely play slivers in Modern. It's legacy where they shine. Crystalline Sliver + Sliver Hivelord is the best. Hope you've got a board wipe!
