Create a token that's a copy of target artifact or creature.
Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)

A "copy legion" themed Sliver deck seems like an awesome idea that I would love to help come into fruition. Copy spells that I think would be all-stars in this deck would be:
- Reflections of Littjara: This card would likely be the heavy lifter for copy effects. It's a triggered ability that only requires you to cast stuff, which you really want to do in this deck.
- Rite of Replication: This is a big splashy spell that can really get your army going. A good target for this spell would be Predatory Sliver, and Muscle Sliver.
- Clone Legion: Seems like a good clone spell
- Double Major: Seems like a good clone spell
- Quasiduplicate: Seems like a good clone spell
- Stolen Identity: Seems like a good clone spell
- Mystic Reflection: This spell is interesting because when changing a creature an opponent casts to a Sliver (like their commander), you could just outright steal it using your commander's second ability.
Additional cards i'd suggest are:
Panharmonicon: Doubling copy triggered abilities always seems like a good idea.
That's it off the top of my head. Honestly i've never seen a copy focused Sliver deck. This seems exciting! I'll be watching your list as it grows and changes.

Heraldic Banner is a boss card in budget Talrand, as are Hands of Binding Hidden Strings and Stolen Identity. Ciphering is amazing in Talrand, and the cards are really budget. Dig Through Time got reprinted recently I think. Ravenform is a great solution card in mono-blue, especially if you add some tutors later, as it can exile an artifact, something blue generally can't do. There is also Resculpt, which gives a 4/4 but is an instant. Either or both are worth considering. Saw It Coming and Mystic Reflection are also worth taking a look at.

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

I think you might be short on mana.

might be a bit expensive, but could go crazy in a deck like this.
Redirect and Twincast have a lot of utility here. Opponent buffing their creature? mine now, and you get to make a token copy. Opponent countering your spell? copy or redirect the counterspell.

P.S. you could take cards like
Spelltithe Enforcer, Vryn Wingmare, & Windborn Muse
but then add cards like
Rite of Replication, Quasiduplicate, & Followed Footsteps
it should help buy the time you need pull off your combos
o and Stolen Identity seems like it would could be amazing with Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun
Cipher it onto a token you control then let your commander make it unblockable
