Hi,

With Modern Horizons coming up I've been looking for a Sliver deck and I really like how you put your Za Warudo! (Sliver Overlord Aggro) together.

Do you think there would be many changes if you swapped out Sliver Overlord for The First Sliver, cascade instead of tutor.

A new card you may want to look into is Unbound Flourishing . It doubles Marath's abilities- so it's effectively a Doubling Season when making tokens or adding counters to your creatures, but it also doubles the damage Marath deals! Nightshade Peddler with Marath and this card can effectively let Marath kill 2 creatures for only 1 mana and 1 counter, which is kind of a big deal. I'm cutting Primal Vigor for it in my own list, but you could likely cut something else for it.

There are a few things I'd change if using The First Sliver over Overlord- I likely wouldn't be running Intruder Alarm or Paradox Engine without Overlord since his ability to ensure I have Gemhide is what makes those valuable. Depending on how many mana dorks you run overall, though, you could keep Engine.

Sacrifice outlets would be less necessary in the event of clones- so Slivers like Cautery, Darkheart, etc., would be less valuable, but you have newer cards like Lavabelly Sliver or Unsettled Mariner that you could run in their stead if you like. Homing Sliver to get Hibernation Sliver will be huge, though, so I'd recommend both of those pretty strongly.

Just run tons of ramp (I do 36 lands and 16 ramp in mine), 'cause getting TFS ASAP is likely what will cause the deck to explode turn after turn. More methods of drawing cards will be useful too as that'll give you a lot of gas to keep chain-casting Slivers repeatedly.

Saw your deck in the cycle list and thought I'd come say hi. I also regularly play Marath, my list is here for reference:

I see you have Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, etc., but no Illusionist's Bracers . That particular card would be a great help as, when attached to Marath, it's a functional second copy of Doubling Season. Doubles the damage Marath deals with its ability, doubles the tokens, and lets you put counters back on Marath with excess mana.

One thing about Marath is that its a very, very mana hungry deck. More mana = more tokens, after all. For this reason, I recommend Cryptolith Rite and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, which let you turn your tokens into way more mana. Marath, being so efficient at making tokens once you get something like Ivy Lane or Doubling Season down (as 1 mana will equal 1 token, essentially), I would recommend you focus on using Marath to generate virtual card advantage.

Outpost Siege is fine in mono red, but this deck isn't mono red. A once-per-turn card 'draw' ability is okay, but you have access to better cards in Naya to draw ( Sylvan Library , Mentor of the Meek , Huatli, Radiant Champion , even Harmonize , all of which are the same cost or better). For the second ability, Goblin Bombardment does the same exact function but gives you complete control over when you want the damage. Throne of the God-Pharaoh can function essentially as a damage doubler (attack with or tap 20 tokens, one opponent loses 20 and then each opponent takes 20 more on top of that lol. Cryptolith Rite and Throne of the God Pharaoh can be hilarious).

I would recommend cutting:

Outpost Siege

Oreskos Explorer (you have access to actual ramp in green. Run Nature's Lore , Burgeoning , Devoted Druid (though note that Druid + Cathars' Crusade + Marath makes infinite tokens), etc., but don't run Oreskos Explorer. Since you're in green you have all the ability in the world to be the player with the most lands at the table).

Kazuul

And possibly a few other cards that similarly don't really help your gameplan that much. Hope this helps!
