P.s. as for the kings of cedh
Thats called commander dependency
Its a weakness. Stop the commander stop the deck
Keep in mind we have been playing against turn 2 Sliver Queen decks years before cedh was even a thing.
and before anyone even says it. No the decks had nothing todo with slivers, the commander never had to leave the zone. It was just access to 5 colors and an optional mana dump

Averna, the Chaos Bloom is too good here. They're well worth breaking the cascade chain one time. For 3 mana, they provide lands consistently, easily making them one of the best forms of ramp in a cascade deck. They're simply explosive.
KITTYMANHunkGTI I am not able to help, outside of checking out Mitch's budget brew on YouTube. His channel is called Commander's Quarters. This deck started as his budget sliver brew he made, and then I just spent tons of money to get lands. Thankfully when I bought Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen they were far less expensive at the time (I purchased Sliver Queen for ~$60).

Doombeard1984 There is absolutely a lot of randomness that goes with it, I admit. I've sent away a fair share of useful lands and enchantments using Call to the Kindred , for example, but I see it as an acceptable trade-off for the ability to put some extra Slivers on the field, especially for free. To be fair, my deck is also more heavily centered around the Sliver Queen combo than yours, so my strategy isn't much affected if I shuffle away something that's not part of the combo.
With that being said, I still see it as an acceptable risk for your deck, since you're shuffling away anything you would have drawn every time you tutor anyways, and there's very little difference to me between shuffling away a good pull because of Sliver Overlord and putting a card on the bottom of the library. It's also worth mentioning that you have half again as many creatures in your deck as mine, so Call to the Kindred would probably work better for you than for me :)

Understood concerning Sliver Queen. She is a pricey one.
Mirror Entity can really give you a powerful swing in using its ability.
I like menace, so Two-Headed Sliver might give you another good way of getting through damage.
Sedge Sliver is also really good

ok then. So I would suggest (if your budget permits) a Sliver Legion. It is a strictly Sliver Coat of Arms. Speaking of CoA, I would probably actually cut it for the Sliver Legion. You could also look at things like Shared Animosity and Magma Sliver. I suggest dropping the Coat of Arms because the effect from this is symmetrical. I am a "greedy" player. If I bring an effect to the table, I want it for me only :) .
So, I don't want to be the guy to suggest infect... However, if you are going all out attack Triumph of the Hordes is a good finisher.
Metallic Sliver seems a little like filler. I tend to look at cards and say "If I pull this card, am I going to be happy". I don't see a time when you pull this that you are happy.
Brood Sliver could also be a really good include. Lots of extra Sliver tokens for your Hive. If this is something you want to lead into, you could look at Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives or Doubling Season as well. At the very expensive end of this, you could look at Sliver Queen. Her, plus any doubler and Basal Sliver means, infinite sliver tokens!!
I think some draw would be useful for you too. YOu never want to be running out of gas. Guardian Project and The Great Henge are possibilities. With the henge, remember, if your Commander is out, it will only cost due to the cost reducing effect.
Also, sometimes you just need to boardwipe. Either the board has become too crazy, or you are wanting to "turn sideways". If you got Sliver Hivelord out you can afford to destroy all your opponents creatures as you are rocking indestructible. Wrath of God, Damnation are one of a multitude of wraths. Also, everyones favorite, Cyclonic Rift can always open your opponent up for the end.
Hopefully that gives you some ideas. And of course
So, thats some ideas at least. Hope it gives you stuff to think about.

JeanYass, Thank you for your response. Whilst I can see yo reasoning, I must disagree on your analysis. Let me address the points you make:
Training Grounds - I indeed may only have a few targets for Training Grounds to have an impact on. However, one of those is my commander, Sliver Overlord, enabling me to tutor for any Sliver in my deck, for . Also is super good with Sliver Queen, again making each Slivery Baby only cost . Necrotic Sliver is again, gives me the ability to destroy any permanent for and a Sliver Sacrifice. Also, don't forget, Mirror Entity is also a "Sliver". Thats a reduction in that creatures activation straight away. Essentially, Training Grounds enables my deck to "fire off" easier.
Boardwipes - Firstly, boardwipes are kind of a staple of EDH. Sometimes, boardstates get away from you, and you have to reset. Also, with some of the combinations of my boardstates, the effects are way worse for opponents. Sliver Hivelord gives my creatures indestructable. If have a mana producers, such as Manaweft Sliver, Jokulhaups is not as destructive to myself as it is to my opponents, and will leave my enemies mana deprived etc. Blasphemous Act + Spiteful Sliver is a game ender, if I have managed to "go off" and tutor and play all the slivers in my deck (Using Manaweft Sliver/Gemhide Sliver + Intruder Alarm + A haste enabling Sliver) Spiteful Sliver's effect will happen and can kill players off.
The other stackable Slivers - I actually used to run the Slivers you mentioned in the your comment. As my deck mainly wins via combo, not so much combat (although it is perfectly capable of "turning sideways"), taking them out was the best option. the +1/+1 and +0/+1 are kind of incidental, and don't cause a massive swing in advantage. Leeching Sliver i always liked, but it is not super relevant to the deck.
Hope this gives you an explanation as to why I have what I have in my deck. Any questions, just ask
