I would load up on Harmonic Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, Sinew Sliver, Predatory Sliver, Gemhide Sliver ...and Sliver Hivelord is also very powerful. I would cut Toxin Sliver, Spined Sliver, Horned Sliver, and Darkheart Sliver. If you have the money 4x Aether Vial is a bit of an investment, but they go in any Modern aggro deck not just Slivers. Good luck!

It's worth it for the redundancy. I ran a sliver deck at one point, here are a few other slivers I think worthy of addition:
- Toxin Sliver - makes anyone think twice about blocking
- Horned Sliver - giving everything trample can mean game on the spot
- Sliver Queen - creates broodlings
- Sliver Legion - insane buff
- Psionic Sliver - this is one that I tested and was split on a lot, but you can sometimes ping someone to death in a turn or two if you can't swing in (or say they have Ghostly Prison out)
- Sedge Sliver - it's a backup to Crypt Sliver
- Virulent Sliver - depending on how cutthroat you want to be...
- Ward Sliver - pick the most popular color at the table
Obviously some of those are expensive, but you could always put them on your wishlist for now

So Thorncaster Sliver came across my radar sometime ago, and my reasons for not including are thus - for a 2/2 that can deal potentially 3 points of damage in a given turn is lackluster. Terrible. Not worth the mana. Additionally, there are plenty of other slivers that cost (in varying colors) that are just plain better - Brood Sliver the Legendary Slivers and Synapse Sliver just to name a few. It's synergy with Venom Sliver is nice and all, but that's the only card let alone sliver it'd have any actual synergy with. To make it more viable, i'd have to include Toxin Sliver as well, but i'd prefer to keep my current line up. tl:dr - it's CMC is too high for what good it actually does.

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.

Depending upon your playgroup you could add these and build more around them. Not my style, but can't fault you for it if you like them:

These slivers you may want to take out and replace with some of the ones below if you can
Call to the Kindred, Prismatic Omen, Bloom Tender, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Exotic Orchard, Beastmaster Ascension,Coat of Arms, Descendants' Path,dual lands (if you can) pain lands (to replace some of the tri land, few of the basics)
these slivers will combo a tad better than the ones you currently have. especially hunter sliver with first strike and deathtouch
