Cuts & Additions after play -

Take out all the high cost CMC spells and keep only the efficiently costed ones. You don't need cards like:
- Djinn Illuminatus
- Dualcaster Mage
- Swarm Intelligence
- Eye of the Storm
- The Mirari Conjecture
- Volcanic Awakening
- Temporal Fissure
- Temporal Mastery
- Star of Extinction
- Lava Spike
- Empty the Warrens
- Devastation Tide
- Chart a Course
- Call to Mind
- Polymorphist's Jest
- Gilded Lotus
- Sphinx-Bone Wand
- Brain Freeze
- Hindering Touch
- Mystic Confluence
- Wild Ricochet
- Desolate Lighthouse
- Izzet Boilerworks
You also have two copies of Ponder in your list. After cutting those cards you should have about 100 cards. You were running too many additional redundant effects. Hope that helps.

Indeed we do not know you and we also can't know what you would consider to be fun or whether you'd care whether others had fun; which is why we didn't state these things, we just asked some questions. We were a bit puzzled because the deck's style differs a lot from what we come across on a regular basis, so we were just curious.
We saw your revisions just now and we think they'd fit very well. We were wondering why you would cut the Flail though, since you have few offensive spells/permanents we would think that other players not being able to counter those would be a good thing (although you do also already have City of Solitude, we thought this was a nice bit of redundancy) :) And as long as you're adding Tendrils, would you also consider adding stuff like Empty the Warrens, Grapeshot, Ignite Memories and Temporal Fissure?

Day's Undoing seems bad beacause you just want one super sick turn so ending it not ideal. The extra turn cards are not actually super good because storm count doesn't carry over across extra turns. Turnabout and Palinchron are like free storm count that make high tide insane, palinchron gives you infinite storm count with lands and a mana doubler. Mana Flare is basically another high tide. Seething Song is the best red ritual. Sentinel Tower is another wincon, so are Grapeshot, Empty the Warrens, and Temporal Fissure.

I have a concern - how much cheaper is it compared to Pauper? The most popular Pauper deck on MTGO is UR Delver which is 130 bucks on MTGoldfish. Now the bulk of that comes from playing skred and a dozen snow-covered lands. You can halve the cost of the deck by playing Flame Slash.
The second most popular option is Rainbow Tron, which costs 65 bucks on MTGoldfish. So, if the most expensive decks in Pauper cost 65 bucks on average, a set of 8 decks will cost you at most 520 bucks on MTGoldfish. One of the most popular decks in Standard is Jeskai Control, which is 650 bucks on MTGoldfish.
So, for the cost of a competitive standard deck, you can buy 8 Pauper decks and a box of Guilds of Ravnica, plus meals from a fast-food chain for every participant, and organzie a pauper tournament yourself and have 8 decks that will never rotate instead of one that will be worthless in an year.
Finally, some challenges - suppose you create hte format, put all the legal cards in a Google spreadsheet, put everybody's decks in there as well and vlookup the cards versus the list. Nobody has any illegal cards, so you start the tourney. Turns out, a savvy player perused the list and found that Mind's Desire and Grapeshot are far less than a dollar, so he/she storms out everybody. Thus, these storm cards are now banned. next tourney, someone discovers that Temporal Fissure and Storm Entity are still super good and wins that tourney with a modified storm list. So, you ban all storm cards. Next tourney, someone notices Invigorate is 26 cents and builds infect, which kills everyone on turn 3. There are a lot of broken cards that are under a dollar, these are just the ones banned in pauper.
TLDR: The proposed format is cheap, but Pauper already is cheap. It turns out that 10 000+ cards are very hard to balance.

Well let me be the first to say: Welcome to the wide world of pauper! Very fun format, it's basically exclusively what I play online these days. Never played GW slivers myself, but I've played against it more than my fair share of times. I definitely have a few ideas on how you could improve this list.
First and foremost, you'll want 3-4 copies of Journey to Nowhere in the main. Pauper is actually one of, if not the most, interactive format. There are still a few uninteractive decks floating around, but most of them have been banned out over the years, starting with Temporal Fissure, Cloudpost, Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, et cetera. Point is, if you run into a Gurmag Angler or a Myr Enforcer (which are both very common), you'll want a quick and easy way to get rid of it.
Another easy thing to change is replacing Commune with the Gods with Lead the Stampede. You're using commune only to find creatures, which... at that point, you may as well be playing Commune with Nature for one less mana. But no, Lead the Stampede is incredible. It will almost always net you at least 2 creatures, but best-case-scenario draws you 5 creatures for 3 mana.
Should probably play some dual lands for consistency. Shaving 2 of each basic and adding 4 Blossoming Sands should do the trick in and of itself.
Gemhide Sliver is a card that you honestly don't really need. One cool thing about sliver decks is that they're highly customizable, so if you want to play it, then by all means. Tapping your creatures to add mana just isn't something your deck is interested in doing, in general. You want to be attacking with your dudes every turn you can, so at that point I think the Gemhide is better suited as anything else. For example, I think Spinneret Sliver is a good one to consider for the main. Probably not as a 4-of, but flying creatures are very abundant. Specifically, Mulldrifter and Kor Skyfisher are everywhere, plus the occasional Glint Hawk or Vault Skirge. Plus, being a natural 2/2 for 2 mana is nice, as opposed to being a 1/1.
Beyond that stuff though, not sure what else I can offer. I don't know enough about playing the deck to talk about shaving some of the numbers. I will say though, MTGGoldfish is the best pauper decklist resource. Not a big fan of their content honestly, but it's a great site to see decklists. GW Slivers is an archetype you can find in the pauper metagame section, where you can find a bunch of different takes on the list, complete with sideboards.
But yeah. I hope any of that is useful, and good luck with the deck!

Awesome muht1234, glad some of my suggestions helped.
Out of interest, which site does your group use to evaluate deck prices? Our budget pods used to use deckstats.net, but they've changed from a market price, to a checkout cart (price based on what's in inventory for sale). We were looking for somewhere else to value the decks but couldn't find anything so we opted to re-comply all our decks in the new deckstats.net pricing model.
The reason we don't use tappedout is because, even looking at your deck, it says $74.43 but that is excluding 7 cards, Firemind's Foresight, Goblin Electromancer, Mind's Desire, Swiftwater Cliffs, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Temporal Fissure, Volcanic Vision. Really silly IMHO.
Out of interest, your well under the $100 now Deckstats.net price on deckstats.net.
Don't know if you noticed, tappedout says your at 101 cards, you'll need to remove 1 to get down to 100 cards.
Also, since you don't have a budgetary issue anymore, I would add back Cyclonic Rift since it has quite high play value when overloaded, or add the Mystic Confluence back for the modular and draw. Will still be well under budget and get the benefits of the extra power as well.
