Vivid Marsh Discussion

Maybe you should consider Vivid Meadow , Vivid Creek , Vivid Marsh , Vivid Crag and Vivid Grove over the guildgates. The synergy between Circuitous Route and the guildgates are nice, but the vivid lands can provide any color consistently since you have so much proliferate to keep increasing the number of counters on them.
Saljen on Sliver EDH

That's waaaaaay too many lands. 37 is a good number for slivers. If you're worried about hitting your colors and need your lands to fit a budget, here's some lands you can check out. The Vivid land cycle ( Vivid Marsh ), the Tri-colored land cycle ( Seaside Citadel ), 1 of each basic land + Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse / Prismatic Vista , and then a smothering of budget 5 color lands like: Grand Coliseum , Rupture Spire , Unknown Shores , etc.
I also play a Sliver deck. It's a budget list, but the budget is really only spared in the land base. I run all of the above mentioned lands and have zero problems hitting all 5 colors. Here's my list if you're interested.
Lands aside, here's some other Sliver staples that you're missing that might be worth looking at in the future. Sliver Overlord , Sliver Legion and the upcoming The First Sliver should be auto-includes if you can afford them. On that same note, Morophon, the Boundless is stupid good with Slivers and can let you play your commander for free from the Command zone, as well as reduce the cost of every sliver in your deck to just colorless or free. Cyclonic Rift is a staple in any EDH deck that runs blue, it would definitely slot nicely into this deck. Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm create an infinite combo with Sliver Overlord that lets you search out and play every single Sliver card in your library. The 'Domri' planeswalkers are very good with Slivers ( Domri Rade , Domri, Chaos Bringer , Domri, Anarch of Bolas ). They each give repeatable draw, ramp, and removal. Vanquisher's Banner is another solid piece that pumps and draws. Smothering Tithe works really well with Slivers, as it fixes your mana and ramps and next to nobody actually pays that extra 2 mana. Cryptolith Rite is another Manaweft Sliver / Gemhide Sliver , definitely worth running the extra effect. Birds of Paradise really helps with fixing, especially if you land it on turn 1.
As far as your Slivers, I'd say that you could definitely clean up the creatures in that list a bit. Most Slivers are pretty dirt cheap cost wise, so it wouldn't cost much to analyze and trim down that list to use only the best Sliver for each effect. I've put a whole lot of effort into making sure that my creatures are as optimized as possible, so feel free to use my deck list for a reference in that endeavor.
Anyways, from one Sliver player to another; enjoy losing all your friends!!

Been super busy lately so sorry for the late replies!
@Limo: Thanks for the upvote! I'll be sure to take a look at your deck!
@: If you had read the deck description I've put the relevant ruling for auras there as many get confused by them; basically auras only target when cast so if they are put into play as part of an effect (ie. Zur, Replenish , Open the Vaults , etc) they can be attached to a legal permanent of your choosing (as defined by the enchant ability) without targeting that permanent. As MtgMaster02 pointed out Triclopean Sight is indeed both backup to Daybreak Coronet as well as an effective means to get Stasis up and running.
@SlowMoon17: I'd say both yes and no. I've slightly drifted away from the straight 1v1 environment to make it more resilient and able to at least hold its own in multiplayer as well (due to the local meta). I feel like there are faster ways of combo winning ( Doomsday , Phyrexian Unlife , etc) but that's just boring. There's something about playing land destruction/ Stasis and seeing the light drain from your oppenents' eyes that just makes it oh so worth it haha.
@MordMetal: It really depends on how budget you want. Obviously don't foil it lol; but in all seriousness you can save a ton on the land base alone. Add more basics and tap lands ( Arcane Sanctum / Vivid Creek / Vivid Marsh / Vivid Meadow ), use Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse instead of fetches, etc. If your overall CMC is still low swap Dark Confidant for Dark Tutelage , Snapcaster Mage for Archaeomancer / Mnemonic Wall . As for Timetwister it really depends on what effect you are looking for... GY shuffle: Elixir of Immortality , Card draw: Windfall , both: Time Spiral although it costs double the mana (and untaps!) and is still expensive although still cheaper by a phenomenal amount. These are just some examples. I'd recommend doing an advanced Gatherer search (https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Default.aspx) for specific effects you are looking for in a cheaper card variant.
@Dankey Thank you! I like running Jace, the Mind Sculptor for the Brainstorm effect (and Unsummon effect if needed) to filter away any enchantments that find thier way into my hand (so i can tutor them up for free). In 1v1 Jace basically lets me know what my opponent is drawing most of the time too; so for now I think he is just too versatile to get rid of.
@cango35: I really like Winding Canyons in most creature based decks but i think it'd be kind of a waste here for a few reasons. Firstly I overall barely have any creatures. Secondly the additional 2 mana is killer... it'd mean i'd need 6 mana PLUS the land to get it off and that's just not worth the luxury of flash in my opinion. Thanks for the suggestion though!
@Auraprime1984: There are a few options. The rest of the mana base is pretty solid, so to be honest it doesn't matter a whole lot. You could add more basics, the third painland ( Caves of Koilos ), Exotic Orchard , maybe Tainted Isle / Tainted Field , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Prairie Stream / Sunken Hollow , Choked Estuary / Port Town , etc. You could also use some tap lands like Arcane Sanctum , Celestial Colonnade , Fetid Pools / Irrigated Farmland , Temple of Deceit / Temple of Enlightenment , etc. Signet lands are also an option Darkwater Catacombs / Skycloud Expanse . You mostly just have to figure out what would work best with your build. Hope that helps!

There's a couple others you should consider.
Shadowblood Ridge = OG Filter
Arcane Sanctum = Tri-Land
Crumbling Necropolis = Tri-Land
Frontier Bivouac = Tri-Land
Jungle Shrine = Tri-Land
Mystic Monastery = Tri-Land
Nomad Outpost = Tri-Land
Opulent Palace = Tri-Land
Sandsteppe Citadel = Tri-Land
Savage Lands = Tri-Land
Seaside Citadel = Tri-Land
Ash Barrens = Cycles for any color of mana which you can play untapped.
Mirrodin's Core = Comes in untapped. Can give you any color of mana the very next turn.
Vivid Crag = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Creek = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Grove = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Marsh = Vivid Cycle
Vivid Meadow = Vivid Cycle

You might consider replacing Vivid Meadow , Vivid Creek , Vivid Marsh , Vivid Crag and Vivid Grove for the still-cheap Prairie Stream , Sunken Hollow , Smoldering Marsh , Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista . This way, a Farseek can get you two colors! If you include Murmuring Bosk and Krosan Verge , the latter can be activated on turn 3 to fetch Murmuring Bosk and Cinder Glade , guaranteeing you 4 colors for a turn-4 Scion of the Ur-Dragon .

Cabal Stronghold it does seem it should be taken out. I don't think i have actually used it. By time i get Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth out i have already won. Mainly because my combo of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth . Probably should spend some change and get Cabal Coffers .
I do like the idea of the Vivid Marsh type cards. Also i will check out the link you posted on 3 color decks.

Cabal Stronghold seems awfully suspect in a 3-color deck, especially one with a budget manabase. If you insist on running it, I would put in Hour of Promise to get it out with Urborg. I like multimedia's suggestions, and I would also include Vivid Marsh , Vivid Grove , and Vivid Meadow . You should check out The Professor's guide to building a 3-color EDH manabase..

What strategy are you trying to make work with this deck? How are you envisioning this deck winning? Is it creature beats? Combo?
As for the mana base, 4 color can be rough on a budget but Spire of Industry isn't too much $$ and should give some flexibility while having a mode that doesn't ding for life. Maybe the Vivid land cycle Vivid Marsh , Vivid Crag , etc, could help as well.
