Amoeboid Changeling Discussion

Hey, well done so far, nice Queen. The manabase is underwhelming for five colors and you forgot Command Tower.
31 lands is a low amount to have enough color fixing when five colors are essential to cast Overlord as well as needing many different color combinations in the early turns of the game to cast Slivers. Compared to the rest of your deck, other than five lands (Forbidden, Exotic, Crypt, Tree, Zagoth), the rest of the manabase has been neglected. What is the Snow theme for? Playing Snow for Into the North doesn't seem worth it since all the Snow duals always ETB tapped.
Consider adding 3-5 more lands and some more 2 CMC ramp that can make any color?
- Manaweft Sliver --> Spectral Sliver
- Arcane Signet --> Kasmina's Transmutation
- Fellwar Stone --> Into the North
- Command Tower --> No Escape
- Path of Ancestry --> Run Away Together
- Unclaimed Territory --> Death Pits of Rath
Some Sliver upgrades to consider:
- Basal Sliver --> Spined Sliver
- Manaweft Sliver --> Spectral Sliver
- Amoeboid Changeling --> Hivestone
- Bonescythe Sliver --> Fungus Sliver
- Harmonic Sliver --> Blade Sliver
- Striking Sliver --> Plated Sliver
- Sentinel Sliver --> Hunter Sliver
- Two-Headed Sliver --> Poultice Sliver
- Realmwalker --> Mindlash Sliver
Basal Sliver combos with Sliver Queen to make infinite 1/1 Slivers which Lavabelly Sliver is a win condition. Amoeboid Changeling is a Changeling which are all creature types. It's a Sliver while in your hand, library, graveyard and because it's a Sliver in your library you can tutor for it with Overlord. Overlord and Amoeboid have repeatable interaction to turn an opponent's creature into a Silver and then gain control of it.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, well done on a budget while having Overlord, First, Legion and Hivelord. The area of your deck that needs the most improvements is the manabase and lands are my first budget suggestions to consider.
Exotic Orchard, Unclaimed Territory and Path of Ancestry are three more Rainbow lands. The five Battle lands have good interaction with lots of basic lands: Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade, Sunken Hollow, Prairie Stream and Smoldering Marsh. You're better off playing more Tri lands than the Thriving lands: Jungle Shrine, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel, Crumbling Necropolis, Opulent Palace, etc.
A Tri land gives you three choices of colors, not two, which is better when playing five colors. Being able to choose the second color with a Thriving land is nice, but with five colors not as good as having three choices. If you have the Pathways then that's good, but if not they're too expensive price for lands for five colors since you can only choose one color of mana with them. The Battle lands could replace them.
Cloudshredder Sliver is a two drop Sliver that gives flying and haste, it's one of the best Slivers. Shifting Sliver makes all Sliver unblockable unless an opponent controls some Slivers. Quick Sliver lets you cast Slivers at instant speed during your opponents turns or at any point of the game. Flash is excellent with The First Sliver getting to cascade at instant speed is powerful because the card you cast from cascade doesn't have timing restrictions meaning you can cast any card.
Crypt Sliver can protect Slivers from most board wipes, from removal that destroys, from dying in combat from damage and interacts well with vigilance from Sentinel Sliver. Hibernation Sliver can protect from all board wipes, other removal most importantly exile for the cost of 2 life each Sliver.
Hibernation interacts well with The First Sliver by bouncing it as well as other Slivers to cast again and cascade again. Dormant Sliver has nice interaction with Hibernation because Dormant can draw a ton of cards and when you want to attack with Slivers bounce Dormant with Hibernation.
Diffusion Sliver helps to protect Slivers from targeted removal, making an opponent have to pay two more mana to target a Sliver. Striking Sliver is another one drop Sliver and first strike is nice to have when attacking.
Amoeboid Changeling is a Sliver because Changelings are all creature types even when in your hand, library or graveyard. Amoebiod has really good interaction with Sliver Overlord because Overlord can gain control of a Sliver. Amoeboid can make any opponent's creature who you can target a Sliver and then Overlord can gain control of that creature permanently. This is especially powerful to gain control of opponents Commanders. These two combine to gain control of all your opponents creatures over a course of many turns. Because Amoeboid is a Silver while in your library then Overlord can tutor for it.
If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Nobody said Shields of Velis Vel yet. Somebody should say that one.

Actually, you wouldn't have to worry about placing mutate creatures at the bottom of a target creature if you supplement them with Unnatural Selection and Mistform Wakecaster.
It'll give those two aforementioned creature type changers a less janky home since you don't have to rely solely on them to be effective.
Amoeboid Changeling , although something that can never be copied by Volo, might also be good utility for making your own creature lose all creature types.

Hey, interesting version of Slivers.
The interaction of Primal Surge with Gates and Maze is interesting, but I don't think you need it because without Surge Gates are making the manabase really slow to cast Slivers especially to get five mana of all different colors to cast Overlord. Amulet of Vigor helps, but you can't count on consistently having it early game when you need it. In my opinion it's more important for gameplay to cast Slivers then to try to make Maze work with Surge.
I don't think Maze and Gates is wanted here because you're not playing other cards that have interaction with Gates especially land ramp that can search for and put more Gates onto the battlefield such as Circuitous Route . You have some really excellent lands for five colors and then there's the Gates which just doesn't make sense. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is the five color Commander to play with Maze and Gates.
Amoeboid Changeling is an excellent Sliver with Overlord as Commander because of Overlord's ability to gain control of a Sliver. Use Amoeboid to make any targetable opponent creature into a Sliver and then gain control of it with Overlord. Since Amoeboid is a Changeling then it's considered a Sliver while in your library thus Overlord can tutor for it. Amoeboid could replace Might Sliver since don't really need it's lesser anthem effect when you have Sliver Legion also at five mana.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, who's the Commander of your deck? That matters when you trying to restrict the budget.
There's four choices here Sliver Overlord , The First Sliver , Sliver Hivelord and Sliver Legion . In my opinion Overlord and First Sliver are better Commanders than Hivelord and Legion. First Silver is the least expensive price Commander option because it's been reprinted in Modern Horizons 2 meaning in the coming weeks it's going to go down in price even more. You have Hibernation Sliver and Quick Sliver which are busted with First Sliver when it's Commander.
If Overlord isn't the Commander than it's a fine cut to make due to the budget restrictions because Overlord is much less powerful when it's part of the 99 than when it's Commander. Using First Silver as Commander and cutting Overlord opens up a lot more budget for the rest of the deck such as adding Syphon Sliver to abuse Hibernation. Hivelord and Legion are good with First Sliver as Commander because with cascade you can get a lot of Slivers on the battlefield which both these help with attacking Slivers. If Sliver win condition combos are something you want to assemble then Overlord is the better Commander.
In the editor in the section where you can add cards to the decklist find the Sliver who's the Commander and type CMDR after it's text.
The First Sliver *CMDR*
Some budget Slivers upgrades to consider:
- Manaweft Sliver : another Gemhide.
- Amoeboid Changeling : if playing Overlord as Commander.
- Necrotic Sliver
- Pulmonic Sliver : Slivers that die go to the top of your library to then be cast with cascade.
- Crypt Sliver
- Mirror Entity : combine it with Gemhide/Manawelf + Sentinel to make huge Sliver attacks.
- Winged Sliver
- Striking Sliver
After you've chosen your Commander and if interested in any of these suggestions than I offer more advice including cuts to consider and budget manabase options. Good luck with your deck.
