I'm trying to put the finishing touches on this deck.
SCORE: 1 | 123 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
It's going for Modern semi-competitive, and budget isn't a major concern. (The mega-money cards don't seem to help this deck much, though.) Right now, it has the potential to establish on turn 3, and often gets out a finishing threat by turn 4. I'm not satisfied with its reliability, though; it can also sit around getting nothing done until turn 6-7.
I'm looking for cheap permanents that can consistently fill the graveyard. Right now, I have Search for Azcanta Flip and Sliversmith , but is there anything better for this deck? Search for Azcanta Flip is off-color, and Sliversmith isn't that impressive.
If you have any other thoughts about other card choices, please put them out there, too.

Door of Destinies is too slow for modern. Aether Vial and Collected Company would be much faster. you're also missing Sinew Sliver and Sedge Sliver. Sliversmith is also way too slow, and you don't want to be discarding cards anyway.

I would say that the core of the deck should be:
4x Gemhide Sliver
4x Manaweft Sliver
4x Predatory Sliver
These are a solid base for any sliver deck, and if you manage to cast any of the mana dorks, the mana color isn't an issue afterwards. (If you are still worried about mana colors, adding Oath of Nissa is a possibility) Green also has things like Asceticism that coupled with some ramp make your creatures very resilient to removal.
For a second color white or red are the best options,
White gives access to Sidewinder Sliver & Sinew Sliver
Red gives access to Striking Sliver, Two-Headed Sliver, and most importantly Homing Sliver
Homing Sliver is probably the single best sliver card in modern. Slivercycling is beyond op. So its a must include in my opinion. The question is do you want to be able to pay hist cost from land mana, or paying him with sliver produced mana is good enough?
If you have slivercycling you can have all sorts of slivers with a variety of different abilities as a 1of, and use them as a toolbox. Glittering Wish enables to do the same, just with multicolored slivers from the sideboard.
Also there are a number of other cards that can support this tribe pretty well, like Hive Stirrings, or Sliversmith to use with madness cards, or things that return to your hand once discarded (like Squee, Goblin Nabob), Hivestone if you want to include some non-sliver creatures, or Cloudstone Curio that returns dead slivers to hand, instead of putting them in the grave.

I think you can drop Sliversmith and Mishra's Factory to add three more Codex Shredder. You have plenty of opportunity to discard yourself without Sliversmith, and Mishra's Factory isn't legal in this format anyway.
