But ya I would the say Adaptive Automaton is a bit over kill.

Hey RipGut-Gway, your deck looks interesting, back in the day I had a sliver deck and it was a lot of fun. I second Balaam__. I think the deck is strong fundamentally but needs more removal/opponent interaction. Since you are white dominant, I suggest a full set of Path to Exile instead of Adaptive Automaton, which seems like overkill in this build, or instead of a few white protection spells. Plus I think your sideboard could use some artifact/enchantment hate Disenchant or Revoke Existence, some way to deal with graveyard decks (Rest in Peace, Surgical Extraction), some way to deal with Tron/Ramp/Storm (Damping Sphere), and maybe even defense against burn/discard (Leyline of Sanctity). Another option is Aether Vial to pump out free slivers by turn 2.

Lol had to add Adaptive Automaton

I used to play a very similar deck and it was one of my favorites! I definitely recommend Echoing Truth (it's so much fun to use it against a token deck).

Phantom Warrior and Gossamer Phantasm aren't the strongest cards ever (despite the latter's gorgeous art), so if you need to remove cards to add new ones, they're where I'd start.

While I can't remember if there are any relevant blue or colorless ones off the top of my head, when building a tribal deck it's always worth looking at changelings, too, since they count as illusions and can have some fun effects.

Finally... If you can afford it, Adaptive Automaton is pretty great (and way cheaper than it used to be), and same goes for adding a fourth Phantasmal Image (who on the other hand is a lot more expensive now, haha).

Cool decklist.

It doesn't look like you have nearly enough ways to draw cards. Try Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, and Syphon Mind. For your X damage spells instead of cut I would try Exsanguinate.

Thoughts on Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic??
