Court Hussar seems weak. Syr Faren, the Hengehammer and Knight of the Reliquary do as well. I would cut all of them for better ramp cards, like Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart. Ancient Ziggurat might replace a Transguild Promenade. Order of Midnight also seems weak. Try Belle of the Brawl. Basri's Lieutenant is also really good. It could replace Deathless Knight.

Yes, yes and yes. Keep the sliver decks coming.

I would suggest some lands.

Ancient Ziggurat, Cavern of Souls and Mutavault all work very well in sliver (or any tribal) deck.

Good work :D.

Ancient Ziggurat is great in tribal decks.

Cavern of Souls is another

Mutavault if you can, and those are just land suggestions lol.

Here's the deck I run in modern if you want an example

You're off to a good start, these can be hard to put together because some of the cards can get expensive. They are a ton of fun to play though, if you dont mind all your friends hating you.

If you really want to push Slivers to the next level make a goal of creating a sliver EDH deck. They are brutal once you get all the pieces.

Have fun with it man, I look forward to seeing it evolve.

Updated the landbase slightly. The tri-lands are out since it's too important for us to have our first three mana without any tapped lands.

Opulent Palace --> Gemstone Mine

Zagoth Triome --> Ancient Ziggurat

Thran Quarry was also a consideration of mine. But I think it might get us into too much trouble, so I'll hold back on that.

Nice deck! I think the hideaway lands could work well here, especially Windbrisk Heights. Other land options that might help are Gavony Township, Kessig Wolf Run, Ancient Ziggurat, and Thran Quarry. Some other synergistic cards that come to mind are Aid from the Cowl, Rhythm of the Wild, Keeper of Fables, Temur Sabertooth, Bear Umbra, Path of Discovery, and Champion of Lambholt. Triumph of the Hordes and Gratuitous Violence could be a wincon. As for good counterspell options, I'd recommend Avoid Fate and Rebuff the Wicked. You could also always just go with Price of Glory.

So... I looked into lands... Did you know that if all your spells are elemental creatures, you've got a LOT of options? I didn't, but I do now! Cavern of Souls and Unclaimed Territory are common knowledge. Ancient Ziggurat and Primal Beyond, however, are new to me and give me SIXTEEN UNTAPPED RAINBOW LANDS at my disposal. So I'm excited for that.

Next, I think Vesperlark should help a lot in control matchups?? Probably not enough tho. Maybe I should run some manlands, yea.

I really don't want to have any creatures except maybe a Flamekin Harbinger and a Smokebraider until the turn I combo off, so Chord of Calling is basically just 6 mana. I experimented with Collected Company initially, which is arguably a bit better for this deck, but turn 4 is when I want to go off, so spending that turn to cast one spell is iffy. That said, it gets two creatures, and the deck was very different then... maybe it warrants playtesting again.

The cycling lands seem pretty good, but I don't want lands that only tap for one color. The bicycle lands might be worth considering tho?? I'm gonna see what my deck looks like with all the rainbow lands.

you actually wouldn't have the same problem casting colorless spells. just use the non-Ancient Ziggurat lands to cast them. i think the best options would be Chromatic Lantern and Prophetic Prism

I have a 5 color zoo deck (The Gold Standard), that runs into one problem every now and then. The problem is Ancient Ziggurat and the few non-creatures I run.

I do run Wild Cantor for such reasons and ramp, but more options is better. A Burning-Tree Emissary like card that could either give Golgari or Selesnya colors would be an absolute life saver. So far I don't know with what kind of keywords those kinds of cards could be worded, so I'm calling on you guys! Thanks in advance.
