Stronghold Biologist Discussion

For sizing, the bigger counter point is simply color logic - I know of not a single blue 3/2 for 2 blue mana. the closest comparison is Gilded Drake , which while a 3/3 for 2, is given to your opponent as opposed to kept on your side of the field. searching the gatherer for creatures costing "UU", the majority are 2/2s, with a few 1/2s, 2/1s, and the odd 1/4 or 4/1.
I am forced to agree with cdkime - "sliver" is more than a powerful enough mechanic to begin with. especially since morph is less useful to slivers than any other tribe, as the creatures face down have no creature type. the ability to turn face up is much better for triggered creatures, such as Voidmage Apprentice or Weaver of Lies . Creatues without a "when this card turns face up" typically just have a larger mana cost that can be paid over 2 different turns, and that's it.

The first thing I would recommend is finding a way to copy your namesake card the turn it's cast. Copies aren't cast, so both will resolve! It's pretty expensive, so having onboard ways are the best. Primal Amulet Flip is probably the best. If you utilize spell based ramp and tutors, you should be able to flip it. Swarm Intelligence , The Mirari Conjecture could also work.
Since you're not planning on using your hand or lands into the late game, you might as well have onboard tricks that use those resources.
To use your hand, you could play Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace , Words of Waste , Null Brooch , Restore Balance , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , Mageta the Lion , Stronghold Machinist , Stronghold Biologist , Greel, Mind Raker , Alexi, Zephyr Mage , Notorious Assassin , Knollspine Invocation , Pyromancy , and Magus of the Balance .

After reading your commander I immediately went to the list for a madness deck I'm working on. Here's some cards I could see that might fit. I especially like the idea of playing off the discard.
- Circular Logic power card in here, I think
- Curator of Mysteries
- Decree of Silence
- Drake Haven turn those discards into drakes
- Forbid discard two cards to counter a spell
- Obsessive Search discard it then pay 1 to replace it
- Stronghold Biologist Discard to counter
- Tidespout Tyrant counter their spells and clear their board
- Zenith Seeker if you had a big grounded beater. Flying Kraken anyone?

If you're really looking for things to remove: Fork, Increasing Vengeance, Reiterate.
You're playing with an Epic spell, much as I applaud it, it's important to understand that after the first cast of the spell, that's it, all of your hand is dead. It bears mentioning because it's just that much of a down-side.
The majority of your casts of Dominion is going to be during the upkeep, no fork, no howl of the horde, no dualcast mage.
They're nice on the first cast, yes, but the same mana can be put into abilities that you put into place in turns prior, and can continue to affect the future casts of it.
Additionally, you need more pillows. Windborn Muse, Elephant Grass, things that keep people from punching your face in.
If you want cards that Synergize well with the fact that you're running an Epic spell, I'd look into the Spellshaper creature type. Most of their abilities aren't all that impressive, but it does allow for using the cards in your hand for more than Epic would normally allow you too. Most notably Stronghold Machinist and Stronghold Biologist

Other fun stuff included ...
- Three Spellshapers. We'd seen the creature class before (on Jaya Ballard, Task Mage), but hadn't really dived in. They have a fun flavor -- mages who can turn anything into a particular spell. Our favorite was a Stronghold Biologist, who can turn anything (even a land) into essentially a Remove Soul
- Some interesting land interactions in Coiling Woodworm and Submerge
- A Caw Elf! OK, Skyshroud Sentinel is more expensive and doesn't have the evasion of a Squadron Hawk, but it was fun to see the mechanic 10 years before Caw Blade.
And now, for the rare:
