I hope we get more of these stories as I know that I'll just be disappointed with Bolas' "genius" plot. His whole scheme on Amonkhet was plain dumb, since the payoff was just a bunch of lazotep-coated zombies.
He destroyed the adult population of an entire plane, reprogrammed their gods to become administrators of what amounted to a gigantic training camp, all to get a bunch of lazotep-coated zombies. Oh yeah and the harsh training mainly involved the humans sacrificing their teammates to monsters and traps in order to get past them to the next "obstacle". This is supposed to make them "elite warriors" when they become zombies. "Genius" indeed.

I think you should leave feedback for the deck above yours. You can't use the excuse that you missed the thread opener, seeing as you read it well enough to use the recommended deck-large format.

Oracle of Mul Daya seems to be a good fit for this deck. Could possibly replace the Rites of Flourishing imo

How can you call this a superfriends deck when it doesn't even pack Deepglow Skate?? :P

Add Path of Discovery and don't look back! Satisfaction guaranteed!

Keranos, God of Storms is a good resilient commander that people usually won't/can't remove. He'll net you plenty of value while you do your shenanigans!
For chaos cards, Izzet gives you loads of options. In red you have Wild Evocation, Tide of War, Possibility Storm, Mana Cache... For Blue you have mainly Hive Mind, you can check out this list sorted by colour.

No mill deck is complete without Mesmeric Orb! Just try it once! It really warps games!
You could also put in Laboratory Maniac and Dread Return as backup Plan B (Cast or reanimate the Lab Maniac, or even flashback the Dread Return if you have both milled. Then use Phenax's ability on yourself to mill yourself out and cast a draw spell).
Last but not least, Eater of the Dead with Phenax out has a high chance of milling ALL your opponents in one shot. Play at your own risk!

You can consider adding the Thespian's Stage and Dark Depths combo since you have Life from the Loam. You can even add Vampire Hexmage to help with the combo, it also acts as a repeatable PW killer with Muldrotha's ability.

@WhatevWorks: Haha those cards would not be a good fit for my gameplan as I don't intend to durdle in the early game! This deck aims to step up the pressure from the get-go. If there are more than three opponents it tends to get difficult bringing life totals down. There is a decent amount of card draw so that I can keep playing dragons each turn to keep the damage piling on. With the tarkir legendary dragons (those that say "whenever a dragon you control attacks..") as well as cards like Scourge of the Throne, Utvara Hellkite, Kessig Wolf Run,Xenagod.. a huge blowout can come out of nowhere!

Great choice for your sliver commander! I know people like to use Hivelord for the indestructibility (but with exiling removal becoming more prominent its not as good as it seems) or Overlord for tutoring the same combos. Despite that I feel that the Queen is the strongest because she allows you to build your board without overextending.
Personally I feel that you should cut out all non-sliver creatures unless they provide something really unique to the game plan. I mean, Qasali Pridemage can be replaced with Harmonic Sliver. You can cut out your ramp creatures for land-based ramp since you are in green. Slivers are already susceptible to board wipes. Why exacerbate that with so many mana dorks?
You are also missing some MVP slivers. Venom Sliver and Toxin Sliver, Brood Sliver. Hibernation Sliver lets you protect choice slivers from wraths (including your commander!) I would actually use anthems to pump up your slivers, this way you can keep precious card slots for useful abilities. You don't need to waste slots on weenies cause your commander conjures them out of thin air.
The PWs may add an alternate route to victory but imo they don't really synergize with the sliver plan. Psionic Sliver can let your slivers one-shot a player. Thorncaster Sliver does something similar on attack. Leeching Sliver as well. If you add in the haste slivers, you can put in Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding as a powerful plan B.

I would remove the Jet Medallion as the black dragons you have are few and far between. You can replace it with something like Fellwar Stone. You are in RB so you should not need a lot of mana fixing. Reliable 2CMC mana rocks will be good, best have at least 8 sources of ramp that costs 2 mana or less.
Next, your dragons are very top heavy. I'd recommend trimming some of the bigger dragons for some solid 5mana ones. You are missing Glorybringer, Thundermaw Hellkite and last but DEFINITELY not least, Scourge of Valkas. The Scourge of Valkas is extremely important as it gives you a devastating Plan B.
That Plan B is mass reanimation spells like Living End and Patriarch's Bidding. Now, if you reanimate Scourge of Valkas along with a whole bunch of dragons, thats a huge amount of damage that can put the game away on the spot. You already have a Dragon Tempest in the deck, the effect stacks to really bring on the pain. Reanimating 4 dragons (INCLUDING Scourge of Valkas) with Dragon Tempest out is already 32 points of damage.

My Ur-dragon deck! The main focus of my deck is to maximize the strength of the commander discount, so I play the most efficient and/or threatening dragons. The tarkir dragonlords and some dragons like Utvara, Scourge of Valkas or Scourge of the Throne act as force multipliers to go out of hand. There is always the combo-ish plan B of mass reanimating dragons with a haste outlet or Scourge of Valkas/Dragon Tempest out.

Feels like the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo could be squeezed in. You have Ramunap Excavator, E.Witness and Regrowth as means to get the lands back. Thespian's Stage could come out first while you sandbag the Depths for when you need it. Along that line you can also put in Vampire Hexmage as a way to access the combo/ hate on PWs and stuff that uses counters.

I think you're going to have to take a direction with the deck. It seems that your deck is being pulled in too many different directions. Big finishers (with your commander being one), discard enablers, discard payoffs... the balance depends on how you want to take your deck.
If you want to stick with Crosis, I'd recommend building a control-ish deck with him at the top end (or close to it) of your mana curve. Take out your specters and dragons. Run more low-to-the-ground utility drops like Baleful Strix, Serendib Sorcerer, Liliana's Specter, Nin, the Pain Artist, Nivix Guildmage, Notion Thief etc. Run cards that force discarding like Necrogen Mists, Creeping Dread, Painful Quandary etc. Go heavy on removal and draw spells. Alongside your commander, you can have some big spells as a way to end the game when they go long, like Torment of Hailfire, Exsanguinate, deathcloud. Unless the vast majority of your cards are CMC 4 or below, the deck will be very clunky imo.

Thanks for the feedback! Long ago I did include Mistmeadow Witch, as well as other assorted flicker engines like Galepowder Mage. However I found that over-reliance on repeated flickering was lackluster in my playgroup. I also once leaned very hard on a Salvaging Station package, with around 10 utility cogs. But this diluted my deck too much, it would only be good if I built my deck around the Sharuum infinite.
I did have a Nev's Disk in there once but cut it out cause I found myself tutoring for the combo constantly. After cutting away most of my tutors I forgot all about it, am considering making space for it alongside the Mycosynth Lattice (it's something that will also help with Padeem and Leonin Abunas) so thanks for the suggestion!

Upvoted! Us Esper artifact players should stick together :P
For suggestions, I feel that you can incorporate a Stoneforge Mystic package to find equipment to protect the Triplets during grindy games. You can even throw in a Conqueror's Flail and Helm of the Host (I think the helm is a better way to enhance your board state as compared to the Tempered Steel).
