Shifting Sliver Discussion

Virulent Sliver because it's ability is basically useless. Poison won't be a game winner. Even against infinite life decks, it's far more likely you'll win with commander damage before poison.
Darkheart Sliver because why would you ever want to sacrifice a sliver to gain 3 life?
Magma Sliver because BIG DAMAGE means one hit kill with your commander!
Quick Sliver because casting slivers at instant speed allows you insane flexibility that your opponents won't be able to respond to effectively.

Hey, well done with your budget version of First.
Some budget upgrades to consider:
- Arcane Signet --> Pillar of Origins
- Fellwar Stone --> Rampant Growth
- Profane Tutor --> Shadow Sliver
- Patriarch's Bidding --> Spinneret Sliver
- Vivien, Champion of the Wilds --> Door to Nothingness
- Cinder Glade --> 1x Forest
- Canopy Vista --> 1x Plains
- Prairie Stream --> 1x Island
- Sunken Hollow --> 1x Swamp
- Smoldering Marsh --> 1x Mountain
Arcane Signet is a staple mana rock in Commander and especially good when playing five colors. Profane Tutor is a budget tutor that has interaction with cascade because it's CMC is 0. Patriarch's Bidding is quick recovery from a board wipe by reanimating all Slivers in your graveyard. Vivien, Champion of the Wilds is another flash effect for Slivers and it has other uses too since playing lots of creatures.
What makes Farseek a good ramp spell is when it can search for a dual land that has two or more basic land types such as Cinder Glade. If all you have is a basic land that Farseek can search for then it's subpar ramp, worse than Rampant Growth. Tango lands: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Sunken Hollow, Smoldering Marsh are budget and Farseek can search for one of them.
Shadow Sliver is a budget Shifting Sliver and since you have Shifting you don't also need Shadow. Not being able to block with Slivers can be a problem, not able to defend against opponents swingback. Spinneret Sliver is a just a worse effect then giving all Slivers flying.

Hey, you changed Sliver Commander, now playing Overlord instead of Hivelord. It looks like you've already added some of those cards I suggested except Scapegoat. Scapegoat could replace Lymph Sliver as it's effect is minimal protection for a five drop Sliver.
Some other upgrades you could make:
- Diffusion Sliver --> Spined Sliver
- Hibernation Sliver --> Talon Sliver
- Crypt Sliver --> Reflex Sliver
- Shifting Sliver --> Ward Sliver
- Necrotic Sliver --> Hive Stirrings
- Winged Sliver --> Spinneret Sliver
- Beast Whisperer --> Colossal Majesty
By changing to Overlord as Commander then you lose easy access to indestructible from Hivelord thus my advice is increase the amount of Slivers that provide good protection.

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.

Manaweft Sliver is another two drop mana Sliver. Shifting Sliver makes all your Slivers unblockable. Venom Sliver gives all deathtouch. These three Slivers could replace three of the higher CMC Slivers that have redundant effects. Blasphemous Act wrecks your opponents with Hivelord as Commander.
- Sol Ring --> Universal Automaton
- Manaweft Sliver --> Groundshaker Sliver
- Shifting Sliver --> First Sliver's Chosen
- Venom Sliver --> Fury Sliver
- Blasphemous Act --> Lymph Sliver
Consider more draw?
- Reconnaissance Mission
- Elemental Bond: if you control an anthem effect, that effect counts to increase the power of a Silver who ETB. Many Slivers only need one anthem effect to have 3 power.
- Return of the Wildspeaker
- Pact of the Serpent
- Distant Melody
- Painful Truths
Consider cutting a few of the lesser Slivers for more draw?
- Reconnaissance Mission --> Fungus Sliver
- Wild Pair --> Watcher Sliver
- Pyre of Heroes --> Talon Sliver
- Elemental Bond --> Steelform Sliver
- Return of the Wildspeaker --> Evolution Charm
- Cinder Glade --> Sheltered Thicket
- Canopy Vista --> Blossoming Sands
- Sunken Hollow --> Temple of Mystery
- Prairie Stream --> Wind-Scarred Crag
- Smoldering Marsh --> Canyon Slough
Good luck with your deck.

Cool deck, i always like seeing sliver decks, i have one myself. Some suggestions for you Cryptic Gateway allows to to just play some slivers without mana by tapping two other slivers, Pir's Whim is a pretty good card allows you to get any land you want as well as force some "foes" to sac a artifact. Shifting Sliver is a pretty good include.

That's a really fun interaction to win! I don't usually put things in the deck for a single interaction, because it would be already hard to find space to put it in the first place, but I'm glad I know about it now.
This deck mostly wins by the same combo always, which uses the Sliver Queen and Lavabelly Sliver or Acidic Sliver , and this already gfoes around pillow fort decks anyway. Very rarely I dare to go to combat, but when I do it's for commander damage with Shifting Sliver or something like that.

what about Shifting Sliver . Would make all your "Slivers" unblockable pretty much? You could also use Sedge Sliver and Crystalline Sliver as ma means of protection and ability to regen each "Sliver" for just 1 .
Sorry for the Sliver only suggestions, just Slivers are a knowledge base I have. Deck looks cool. +1 for sure :)
