Telekinetic Sliver Discussion

Having spent the last few years with a beat down style sliver deck, not only was it not as effective as I wanted it to be, it was also getting a little stale...time to spice things up a little! Another important factor, Overlord is fantastic but also very slow - as it turns out, an 8 mana/5 colour tutor isn't exactly efficient. With these thoughts in mind, I've decided to give the deck a significant overhaul with 2 goals in mind: improve reliability + increase shenanigans.
I've taken out most of the pump slivers in favour of a few effective combo slivers. I've also learned that I need some disruption to avoid the hive mind's mortal enemy - board wipes. Anyway, here's the change list:
Out: Aphetto Dredging, Constricting Sliver, Cryptolith Rite, Distant Melody, Horned Sliver, Magma Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Might Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Root Sliver, Shared Animosity, Synapse Sliver, Telekinetic Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver, Toxin Sliver, Ward Sliver
In: Basal Sliver, Blur Sliver, Commander's Sphere, Counterspell, Crypt Sliver, Darksteel Ingot, Disallow, Dormant Sliver, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Paradox Engine, Quick Sliver, Swan Song, Voidslime, Wheel of Sun and Moon, Winged Sliver
I'm looking forward to seeing how this refreshed build performs.

Heya, this deck looks pretty sweet overall. I haven't personally played Slivers in EDH, but I have in Pauper and a little in Modern. I'm pretty sure that Frenetic Sliver would be quite good here. The card looks bad, as it has a chance to sacrifice the creature, but keep in mind you'd only use the ability if a sliver's getting targeted with removal anyway. It basically makes half your opponent's removal spells just completely fizzle. Telekinetic Sliver and Darkheart Sliver are both pretty sweet as well. Maybe consider getting rid of some of the redundant slivers for those?

to be fair, the /X slivers are easily the most powerful slivers you have access too, so it feels like a waste to avoid them, by extension Sedge Sliver and means losing out lifegain, removal, mana, and +1/+1 counters, and makes it harder to cast the 5c lords, but thats your call.
Anyway, as mentioned above bant is your only real option, red has some useful slivers left, but they are ability slivers and the splash for Blur Sliver or Two-Headed Sliver probably isn't worth it. so you may need to fill the gap with the any-lords Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic

I love slivers I have a deck of my own you should check it out and upvote it if you think it deserves it. suggestion you should have homing sliver in your deck along with Darkheart Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Quick Sliver, Root Sliver and Telekinetic Sliver.

I wouldn't play Homing Sliver, just way to slow and Screeching Sliver i would drop as well I can't imaging when I would ever board Screeching in. Telekinetic Sliver is also a hard sell, Shadow Sliver seems better.

I have more potentially available, but this is the main stuff I want to sell.
Also, if you have staples for LED Dredge and Manaless Dredge, let me know. My end goal is LED, but until then will settle for Manaless.
I will pay for tracking on orders over $30. Otherwise, add $2 for tracking. Other arrangements can be made in trade discussion.

Pozo2212, While I think Storage Matrix is an interesting card in and of itself it's usefulness in this deck is extremely narrow. It will slow down the usefulness of my mana rocks, specifically Mana Crypt, Darksteel Ingot, Coalition Relic, Chromatic Lantern and Sol Ring. Once Storage Matrix hits the battlefield i'd be forced to choose between untapping my artifacts, my creatures (if Gemhide Sliver was in play), or my lands (since I run the original dual lands, i'll be more likely to have the mana I need at a moment's notice). It's kind of a lose/lose/lose scenario for me. Additionally, it may force me to abandon Scroll Rack as well. It's not a mana rock per se, but it does help me sift through my library for mana.
For this card to work the way i'd want it, i'd need to run Telekinetic Sliver, Opposition and other cards of a similar type. Unfortunately, none of those cards really work with the strategies i'm trying to use in this deck.
Additionally, it's not a very good political card. Sure, it'll slow down the more aggro themed decks but in a multiplayer game i'm sure all of my other opponents/temporary allies will be less inclined to help me out when i'm constantly slowing down their individual progress. But for now, i'll pass on Storage Matrix.
