If you're going to use Sliver Overlord as your commander, you really should be running Homeward Path. Especially since you're light on other removal.

There are several Sliver I think your amiss in dismissing:

Bonescythe Sliver, for cheap double strike.
Brood Sliver, for massive Sliver production.
Harmonic Sliver, for artifact/enchantment removal.
Heart Sliver, for cheap haste.
Magma Sliver, for massive gains.
Manaweft Sliver, as a backup Gemhide Sliver.
Necrotic Sliver, to turn every Sliver into a Vindicate.
Shifting Sliver, to make your team unblockable.
Sinew Sliver, as another Muscle Sliver.
Virulent Sliver, to only have to deal ten, not 40.
Winged Sliver, for more flying.

Other Slivers you might consider: Basal Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, Essence Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Horned Sliver, Spined Sliver, Spitting Sliver, Lymph Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Opaline Sliver, Psionic Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Screeching Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord, Synapse Sliver, Synchronous Sliver, and Syphon Sliver.

Tribal stuff:
Cavern of Souls, obviously.
Descendants' Path, if you want to go heavy tribal.
Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
Belbe's Portal
Urza's Incubator
Patriarch's Bidding

For the purpose of easiness, Sliver Overlord is also fairly easy to use as the basis of a Sliver deck. It may not be your style and it gets a lot of hate on the board, but it's difficult to go wrong with Slivers for your first EDH deck.

As a long term Sliver player, Legion should NEVER be your commander if Overlord is available. Sliver Overlord provides you the most functionality and utility of the Sliver commanders. Sliver Hivelord provides you the most aggressive and difficult to deal with of them and Sliver Queen can be used if you've got a token generation focused deck.

There are also some fantastic combos with Overlord and cards like Unnatural Selection Amoeboid Changeling Shields of Velis Vel. It lets you just take your opponents creatures if they're dangerous.

Mana Echoes With Sliver Queen makes infinite tokens and infinite mana. And if you want to just watch the world burn, Sliver Hivelord and a deck of board wipes or even the much hated Worldslayer works well.

If you'd like to look over another Sliver deck that works quite well, my deck makes other players groan and leave the table when they see it come out. Sliver Mastery There's a LOT of infinite comboes in there mind you, so this deck now only comes out to punish people who aren't fun to play with.

So if your group is full of highly competitive decks that deploy their game plan early, why are you choosing a general that costs 7?

I understand you can accellerate Omnath, Locus of Rage early, but by then you've either run low on cards or run out of time. I believe Omnath may be a good choice against Stax-type decks, as the elementals dying give you additional value. But at most you'll have 2 or 3 tokens until your board position is dealt with.

A lot of the generals you mention seem like they win in one of a few different ways. Can you please explain which of the following you usually face or have difficulty with:

A) Power out a quick win via combo Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or commander damage Scion of the Ur-Dragon and Uril, the Miststalker

B) Play "Free" spells/permanents Sharuum the Hegemon, Talrand, Sky Summoner, and of course who can forget Maelstrom Wanderer

C) Win with overwhelming incremental advantage (such as constant card draw, creature removal, etc...) over time Sliver Overlord, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

MichaelWas Thanks for bringing up that inconsistency between Paradox Engine and Planar Bridge I removed it, I appreciate that. Honestly, no one has caught that in the times I've used the combo.

I run Training Grounds rather than Heartstone because it also drops Sliver Overlord's ability to as well.

My buddy plays Sliver Overlord and its oppressive when he has the mana to tutor up a Crystalline Sliver and some other silly shenanigans. Usually a Hivelord...
