Ok! Sorry I missed you already have Prowler's Helm ! I also totally get the unfavorability of Hot Soup but A) it’d hilarious and B) I’ve personally won games with it. Of course this isn’t meant to say your points still don’t stand cause equip 3 is a lot. I just think most people will underestimate it’s power if they’re not slinging non-combat damage with ease.

A counter-suggestion to Stormtide Leviathan + Part Water ... how about Wonder and Filth + Buried Alive . You don’t necessarily need Buried Alive but it’s an enabler for the other two to automatically work. And I would personally take out Wingcrafter and Jace's Phantasm for them.

All 3 of the “Extra Turn” spells are dope, but in the name of practicality I would probably take out the weaker 1 or 2 for Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top as they fit into the theme of manipulating the top of your library and they will also get you out of trouble a majority of the time.

Smoke Shroud is amazing flavor but I eould probably replace that with Dauthi Embrace .

What do you think?

Sweet deck!

Have you considered Trailblazer's Boots , Hot Soup , Prowler's Helm or Dauthi Embrace ? All are fantastic choices to make creatures unblockable. You already have Skeleton Key which is great!

Something really janky you could try is Stormtide Leviathan + Part Water . Something most people wont look for.

I have nothing against Coastal Piracy but Kindred Discovery may do more for you, since you draw on the Enter and the Attack per creature.

I think Heartstone helps cut ninjitsu costs.

Hey Nephs, just finally got a look at both First Sliver's Chosen and Lancer Sliver. You were spot on with Lancer's ability, but what piqued my interest was Chosen. Exalted among Slivers? With the right build that sounds like it could definitely get out of hand. I'd imagine Brood Sliver and maybe Hive Stirrings could be part of the strategy to quickly increase the amount of Exalted instances on the board. I haven't heard anything about what will be full art though. Do you have a link?

Slayroth, interesting card Carpet of Flowers . I have honestly never heard of it before...but to use it in EDH seems risky - because you have no idea what decks your opponents are bringing to the table. Blue is a popular color though, so there will be at least one player there packing some form of Blue control. I'd recommend combining Carpet of Flowers with something like Stormtide Leviathan or Quicksilver Fountain to really take advantage of it. I think Carpet of Flowers probably belongs in a deck that has Islandwalk and all matters Island as part of it's central theme. There's not enough room in something that is Sliver focused.

i personally would up the wincons a bit.

you could Mass Polymorph / Polymorph / etc. into combo pieces like for example Palinchron or just some finishers like Blightsteel Colossus or Guile . Did you think of Docent of Perfection  Flip and Stormtide Leviathan ? They did great work for me.

Also artifact-ramp and while we're there you could also use scepter + dramatic reversal and Paradox Engine or some other ways to create infinite mana. Either way you need an Isochron Scepter . If you're going for the combo route, you might want to add tutors like Fabricate or Muddle the Mixture .

If your goal is to go for plain Drake spam, there's options for that too. Coat of Arms Door of Destinies the before mentioned leviathan, even Runechanter's Pike or Sphinx-Bone Wand .

Whatever you do, you'll want more Mana, to interact ( Extraplanar Lens Sapphire Medallion ) and your cantrips and card draw more at instant-speed, so you can react to what is happening. you are heavy into counterspells

Why the Archetype of Imagination ? You have enough control that you don't have to worry about a creature with Flying or Islandwalk and Stormtide Leviathan makes it so, in all but blood, only it can attack and even then it cannot be blocked because of the islandwalk mechanic. I just don't think it does anything to help you.

Thank you so, so,so much appreciated! As for Mystic Decree , I'm currently pairing it with Magus of the Moat which has the same effect as Moat and Stormtide Leviathan , but I'll consider running the Leviathan too.

As for Shalai, Voice of Plenty you're right! Thank you very much for pointing it out!

My gameplan is to basically ramp with mana, mana rocks and mana dorks ( minimum required for Planar Bridge's ability) in order to tutor or to cast Planar Bridge , combo it with Paradox Engine to go infinite and then proceed to cast Omen Machine and/or Knowledge Pool in order to lock my opponent out of the game thanks to Lavinia, Azorius Renegade and follow with Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Platinum Angel , and (I wanted to get some protection for myself and for my permanents, so I originally chose her, too) Shalai, Voice of Plenty and then close the game with Azor's Elocutors when opponents are locked out and I'm safe for the most part.

Since Shalai, Voice of Plenty is not available, I'm looking for another way to make myself and my permanents hexproof, aside from Padeem, Consul of Innovation , or maybe different cards or strategies.

I thought about Witchbane Orb and/or Spiritual Asylum , but Asylum seems more like an hindrance?

If someone has ideas for an alternative wincon, I'm all ears!

If you're going to run Planar Bridge then you should have something worth spending on. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is one but for it to be worth it you probably want more than one.

If you're going to play Mystic Decree you should pair it with Moat or Stormtide Leviathan , otherwise I'm not sure it's doing enough for you, plus it's nerfing your own flyers. Actually, speaking of flyers, one of yours is not legal in an Azorius deck. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great card, but it's legally a white & green card due to its activated ability.

Since the goal is to cast Stormtide Leviathan as soon as possible, you could run Choke (against other control decks), since Wilderness Reclamation stop it from hurting you very much.

Also Quicksilver Fountain , against tron decks. You can prevent the fountain from turning all your lands to Islands, by using two Simic Growth Chamber to bounce eachother.
