Trivia time! There were 1,930 new Commander/Vintage-legal cards released in 2022, representing four Standard-legal sets, six Commander sets, and three additional products. In 2017, that number was 915 across four Standard sets and one Commander set. (Paradox Engine got banned in Commander.) In 2012, the number was 729, representing five products, with Griselbrand getting banned in Commander. From 2012 to 2017, the number of new unique cards per year increased by 186. From 2017 to 2022, the rate increased by 1,015 new cards per year.
It's not so much the number of new mechanics per year that concerns me. It's the number of new cards. Each year now produces more than twice as many new cards than even five years ago. Product fatigue is real.

Hello Votecat, thanks for commenting on my page. Just as a side note, you can tag the cards you reference by using:
I have thoughts on every card suggestion you made, and i'll address them individually. Root Sliver is on permanent standby for me. Depending on the nature of my meta (Rather, when I actually get one - RL has its challenges) i'd find a way to work it in, but I'm uncertain on what i'd cut - what would you cut from my list to make room? Rhythm of the Wild is a great card, however it's unnecessary as Slivers do all of the things this Enchantment can do - but better. Why be confined by Riot? Having to choose Haste or a +1/+1 counter? Besides, dedicating so many resources to countering one form of interaction is just unnecessary with the inclusion of Cavern of Souls and the potential inclusion of Root Sliver.
Intruder Alarm I have my own issues with - namely that it's a dead card in hand until you have all the combo pieces on board to fully take advantage of it before an opponent does. The effect can very easily backfire - and has backfired on me personally - and has forever soured my take on the card. Also, keep in mind if you are ever in a mirror match, there is always a chance the opponent can out maneuver you with the exact same pieces. This simply makes me miss Paradox Engine that much more. The printing of Urza, Lord High Artificer made the banning of Paradox Engine essential if players were going to use him - so I forever hate on Urza, who personally ruined my fun with one of my favorite cards.
The comparison of Dregscape Sliver and Yawgmoth's Will is like a 9MM vs. a Nuclear Bomb. YawgWill is leagues beyond the potential of what Dregscape has to offer - you can play a land, any spell that isn't a Sliver, oh and a Sliver, until the end of turn out of your graveyard. The best part is that said Sliver doesn't get exiled at the end of turn. There is a very good reason why this card is on the reserved list. I'm not going to be swapping out YawgWill anytime soon.
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth are both good cards - within context. Urborg is kind of meh outside of a monoblack or 2 color deck that also utilizes Cabal Coffers - and doesn't have access to Green. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth on the otherhand is uh...meh? Slivers aren't a Lands matter deck and there aren't any Slivers that gain +X/+X for each Forest I control - though that would be sweet. Honestly, these lands would do more harm than good as fixing the manabases of my opponents is something I generally want to avoid.
Ashnod's Altar is not the most optimal choice unless the commander is Sliver Queen herself. Without the other combo pieces on board, Altar just kind of sits there as an optional sac outlet that could potentially ramp you - but to take full advantage you would absolutely need Quick Sliver on board. Again, it's a good card for Sliver Queen the commander, but in a Sliver Tribal deck i'm just not convinced.
Crowd Lands - first time i've heard Bondlands being referred to as that. Cool. I don't always play this deck in a pod so having lands that always come in tapped is simply not ideal. I lean more toward the Shadowmoor/Eventide Filterlands e.g. Flooded Grove, Cascade Bluffs, etc. if I were to swap out my Revised Dual Lands.
Thanks for commenting by the way, please leave a +1 if you like as I will be doing the same on your deckpage.
chitinous approval ensues
AstroAA on Need help with Karametra God …

I used to play Karametra, God of Harvests as somewhat of a storm commander. She wasn't storm in the typical sense of building up to something like Grapeshot, but was built off of abusing Paradox Engine back when it wasn't banned to get infinite mana off of tapping and untapping mana dorks into using Whitemane Lion and Temur Sabertooth to recast Craterhoof Behemoth an arbitrarily large number of times. I've since rebuilt the list, but it doesn't work nearly as well as it did.
Now, it's based off of abusing Aluren to cast Whitemane Lion-esque cards an infinite amount of times. Then, paired with Cloudstone Curio, casting cards like Wall of Blossoms or Hanged Executioner an arbitrarily large number of times because you can get an additional bounce off of a Whitemane Lion cast with the Cloudstone Curio.
My list can be found here, but keep in mind - it's very outdated and I don't really intend on updating it.

I would unban Iona, Shield of Emeria because angels are my favorite tribe, and I have both the Iona, Shield of Emeria and the Iona, Shield of Emeria versions and I need an excuse to run them.
If I couldn't get Iona, Shield of Emeria unbanned, I'd go Paradox Engine because I still have my foil one from back in the day and it's banning killed my Karametra, God of Harvests storm deck.

Paradox Engine. Not sure if it would affect the meta but I think it’s worth considering.

Kahos paradox engine this is an old list I use to play before the Paradox Engine ban if you have infinate mana and a way to give kaho haste and ways to untap her Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal, Lapis Lazuli Talisman and Tidespout Tyrant all let you turn cantrips into spells that draw your deck for wins with Laboratory Maniac or Thassa's Oracle. Generally you will want to fetch a flicker spell, shuffle you graveyard into your library spell to loop whatever third spell you choose. Essence Flux, Stream of Consciousness and a tutor or draw spell were my go to stacks.
