Hey, welcome to TappedOut.

Your deck doesn't have a Commander. To make Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor the Commander then go into the deck editor. In the text list of cards find Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor and add the CMDR tag at the end.

Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor *CMDR*

Save and Obuun will appear in Commander category with a card image.


On a budget well done so far, nice Jeweled Lotus. Command Tower and Arcane Signet are two budget staples for Commander to consider adding. Since Obuun can put +1/+1 counters on himself to make himself a threat to do Commander damage then having more sources of evasion helps. Garruk's Uprising is a great budget card that gives all creatures you control trample as well as can be a repeatable draw source whenever a 4 or more power creature you control ETB including creating a creature token such as from Omnath, Locus of Rage.

For $5 Moraug, Fury of Akoum is a really good landfall effect for extra attacks. Druid Class starts with the static effect of gaining 1 life each time a land you control ETB. It has two other levels; level 2 is if you pay three mana you get the effect of being able to play an additional land. This effect is static, it stays as long as you control the Class. Level 3 for five mana you make a land into a potentially high power/toughness creature and you also get to keep the other Level effects. With the classes you don't lose the previous effects when you level up.

You're playing the Guildgates for Circuitous Route, but other than the interaction with Route Guildgates are not good lands since even on a budget there's better options. You could replace the Guildgates with Glade and Vista and replace Route with Skyshroud Claim which can search for Glade and Vista and put them potentially onto the battlefield untapped.


Some upgrades to consider:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

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.

As a general rule, setting a price for the deck is much more helpful than setting a price per card. Becuase if a really strong card which would help your deck out immensly is $15 then you can pair it with a 50c card compared to 2x $7.50 cards which are so-so. Just food for thought.

As for suggestions, you need more ramp and draw card in general. Especialy since you don't currently have much draw card effects, I would be favouring land ramp over mana dorks. Between Rampant Growth , Three Visits , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Explosive Vegetation , Circuitous Route , etc. there are a lot of good, relatively cheap options (that are good cards to have in your collection).

Hey, good version of Overlord on a budget.

Unclaimed Territory is another budget Rainbow land with Slivers, it could replace Rupture Spire . The Battle lands would be budget upgrades since there's 18 basic lands to activate a Battle land.

By adding the Battle lands then Farseek is two drop land ramp spell that can search for a dual land and it could replace Circuitous Route . Playing Tri lands with Bounce lands can be problematic when having to bounce a Tri land. Consider playing only the Tri lands and cutting the Bounce lands? Some budget Pain lands could replace the Bounce lands.

These potential land upgrades can speed up game play since increasing the amount of lands that can ETB untapped and cutting ones that always ETB tapped. Crop Rotation is a budget land tutor that get any land and put it onto the battlefield and it's helpful when playing lots of basic lands. Faeburrow Elder is powerful in five color decks with so many possibilities from Slivers of having different colored permanents. Elder could replace Firemind Vessel .


Some other budget upgrades to consider:

Shadow Sliver can be a problem not being able to block with Slivers. Dormant Sliver is repeatable draw, but Slivers can't attack until you remove it. Beast Whisperer can be a alternative to Dormant if not being able to attack is something you don't want to worry about. Preordain with scry 2 before draw is better than Ponder and it's less than $1.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia Mostly I just chose to do Maze’s End + Gates since I already had them. It does definitely suck as a land base, and I will very likely upgrade it over time, but to start the deck off I wanted to keep the land base super cheap to cut down on costs a little. I probably won’t build into it very much since I’d rather keep the other cards, and I’ll just live with the crappy land base for now (except for Circuitous Route , which I don’t know how I forgot). I will definitely upgrade in the future though.

I really appreciate your suggestions! They are definitely better than some of the weaker cards I have here. Thanks!
