I love the foil Serra the Benevolent and the SL Sliver Overlord. If it looks good in foil, then I generally like the art.

Peoni: I really appreciate your comment! Yeah, I like running a tight ship, even when on the lower spectrum of power. I still think Rogues are relatively lower power for my playgroup, but I'll know more once I get a chance to play around with it.

You may have a point regarding Propaganda. If it does turn out to be a weak card, I'll find a suitable replacement. There are several "go-wide" strategies in my meta like Atla Palani, Nest Tender tokens, Sliver Overlord tribal, and Emmara, Soul of the Accord aggro. It's mostly a preventative measure, just in case. If it doesn't work out, I'll try something else.

Excellent point regarding Gilded Lotus. Ramp should be focused to get Anowon down on turn 3 as consistently as possible.

I'm not sold on Maddening Cacophony. Mill is great and all, but I have no big benefit for it at the moment.

Thanks again for your help! Cheers!

That’s a good question DeinoStinkus, apparently wizards weren’t being mindful when they printed the wedges.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Niv-Mizzet Reborn Reaper King The First Sliver General Tazri Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Even cards older than those like Sliver Overlord follow the “color wheel” that’s found on the back of every MTG card. Idk why the wekdge cards are different.

However I just seen Jodah, Archmage Eternal and his activated ability followed WUBRG color wheel but his personal CMC does not.

Slivers is tribal... but you could totally try. Main problem is that Sliver Overlord or Sliver Queen are just the absolute best ways to play slivers in EDH.

I mean, it's probably because no other commander I know of easily tutors out each other sliver (Sliver Overlord)

It is relatively easy to go infinite with slivers - a mana sliver and an untap all effect like Aggravated Assault; Sliver Queen with a mana sliver, a haste sliver, and Basal Sliver; Sliver Queen and a cost reduced like Training Grounds with Basal Sliver; Sliver Queen with Mana Echoes.

Using Sliver Queen in your command zone both gives you a combo piece and an outlet for infinite mana, allowing you to generate infinite slivers. Using Sliver Overlord in your command zone gives you a way to tutor your combo pieces and also tutor Amoeboid Changeling so you can use your infinite mana/infinite untaps to take all your opponents’ blockers.

I would throw in Sliver Queen, Coat of Arms, Belligerent Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver,Lavabelly Sliver, Sliver Hivelord, Sliver Legion, Sliver Overlord, and Syphon Sliver. I would remove a lot of the slivers that give other slivers an ability that costs 2 mana to activate.

If you aren't opting for a Food Chain type of line with The First Sliver then there are often more capable sliver commanders, especially for budget decks or more casual settings. Sliver Overlord does lend itself to execution of the self contained sliver based infinite combo line. Tutoring for Heart Sliver, Manaweft Sliver, Basal Sliver, and Sliver Queen and getting them into play allows you to generate infinite mana by making a new sliver, taping it for mana, saccing it for mana, and then using the to make another new sliver and repeat the loop. From here there are any number of ways you could choose to win with Sliver Overlord, just making an infinite army of slivers, melting face with a something like Acidic Sliver, or drawing out the whole deck with Mnemonic Sliver. Some of your friends might not like the power level of this line of play if the group is more casual, but without a consistent means of engaging the cascade ability of The First Sliver from the command zone a swap to this as the primary line of play for the deck would certainly improve performance and consistency. Training Grounds and Biomancer's Familiar are good support cards to include to facilitate cheaper ability activations.
