Sliver Queen Discussion

RobbyThinv, did you get my response to your forums question regarding slivers? Do you have any questions? Also, Since Sliver Queen is on the reserved list, she never got reprinted into a foil version :( But yeah, let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Lvl_666, thanks for the kind words and recommendations. I havent played in a fair while and only played with a group of friends, loved it though. Im still reading all my cards and working out which ones I think will work well together and which ones I think will be fun (at least for me).
I initially put a bunch of equipment in, but im thinking the Slivers already buff each other, I should use the slots for mana fixing/ramp, protection (as in answers) and control, maybe tutoring for cards other than creatures.
(As you know) I can already tutor for slivers with Sliver Overlord including Changelings. Ill probably keep it pure Slivers, but may put other creatures in if I feel theyll really help.
The M14 and M15 Slivers look great as they affect only your Slivers rather than all, which would be best on the odd chance you have opponents running Slivers. They are all on my buy list.

Speeds are definitely improved so that's awesome. However, lots of strange little anomalies remain. I've noticed a few decks with mislabeled cards that I can't change. For example, my Sliver Queen shows as foil and if I edit the deck to remove the foil tag, it stubbornly remains even after a deck save. I've noticed this for various cards in decks, pretty weird. Also, I added 3 cards to my binder last night...check out the 'Last Update' section :|
So yeah. Strange things are afoot! On a positive note, really liking the nice little aesthetic changes on the site. Definitely has a cleaner look.

Ahem. So lets break down your question here, and i'll get right to answering it as best as I can:
"Im looking at the possibility of building a Sliver EDH deck (please dont hate). I dont know exactly what would be good tech for the deck."
So, when building a Sliver EDH deck know this: You are going . You have no other choice as all legendary slivers are 5 color. This is relevant only because you have to figure out the most expensive part of your deck which will be your landbase. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Lets look at your tech options:
Sliver Overlord is currently the most popular Sliver Commander/General, also it is the control oriented Sliver commander. If you pilot him, you should include cards that capitalize on it's second ability (i.e. Amoeboid Changeling and/or Unnatural Selection). Additionally, you would use cards that slow down the game as you would play a more attrition based strategy. I actually run this Commander, but I chose to build a midrage deck- the more "traditional" magic deck. Overlord works well in midrange as well as control, but it all depends on what appeals to you - do you want to lock down the game while you steadily populate the battlefield or do you want to ramp up and have a more flexible build that can win through different strategies?
Sliver Queen is the General for those who desire a combo win strategy. When the beautiful and incredible queen was first introduced, she was quickly paired with Heartstone + Ashnod's Altar. Such a lovely infinite sliver combo it was. But now, you have even more options in the form of Mana Echoes, Training Grounds or Basal Sliver + Heart Sliver + Gemhide Sliver. You get the idea. The best part however, is that Queen is so dynamic and incredible that she has been used as a general for non-sliver builds like superfriends. But i'm getting off track here. Queen decks are definitely the most competitive builds when it comes to Sliver EDH due to her being a combo piece herself, and thanks to the command zone you will always have ready access to her. On top of that, she makes blockers for next to no mana. There's a good reason why she's on the reserved list.
Now, certainly last but definitely not least you have both Sliver Legion and Sliver Hivelord making up the aggro based strats for Sliver EDH. These Generals may be simple, but they are incredibly powerful. The strategy would be rather simple with these two, as you would run alot of cards that ramp up the damage like Shared Animosity, Rancor etc. Quick little plays that add up quickly over time. If you have Sliver Hivelord in play, you could run alot more mass destruction. Oh, and true fact here: I a player outright scooped when I played Sliver Hivelord + Crystalline Sliver. Since you're running 5 color, you'll have access to all instance of them! Even better, look at the synergy between Ghostflame Sliver + All Is Dust. The slivers thought of everything at some point.
So really, that's a high level generalization of what directions you can go in when it comes to building a Sliver EDH deck. Please, let me know if you have questions as I'm always happy talk about Slivers.

I'm suggesting a replacement of the current deck for Sliver Queen because it's outdated (pre hulk unbanning) and doesn't even have a single way of using the commander as a mana sink, not even as a backup plan.

I'm torn between mana echoes and Worldgorger combo (main win option is flash hulk or birthing pod combo) but for now I have the dragon as a plan B because the reanimate enchantments are already there.
I would say the deck is optimized now, consistently tries to win on turns 2-4 often with protection or backup. I've played it quite a lot both in real life and online

Why not use Sliver Overlord? Having him be the commander would let you run Sliver Queen, Sliver Legion, and Sliver Hivelord in the deck, where the overlord can fetch them all for you. Once the hivelord is out, you can mass-wrath your opponent's creatures all you want and it won't affect your slivers, including the hivelord himself. The best part about it is that you can just replay the overlord and start up the sliver engine again very quickly if your stuff is forced to be shuffled back into your library from anywhere!
I actually find the those four are pretty good on their own, in pairs, trios, OR all together, but running the overlord as the commander would be the fastest way to start it up. The final positive thing to note here is that since some of your opponents are probably aware of how potent slivers can be, each of the four legendary slivers is often very likely to draw hate to itself, and away from something you really NEED.
