Willen Teneb I'm trying out because it it's able to become a threat on it's own rather than having to commit more to the board and overextend. Sure you have to have haste and have mana to make it the best it can be. But it's still fine on it's own to try with being more graveyard based. And suffering from some type of counter can be said about any spell in Commander. That's just how the format is. If you want to use counters in your deck, go ahead. But just adding a bunch of generic counters to the deck takes away from the fact that it's a dragon deck and becomes half a dragon deck and half of EDH most powerful cards which sounds boring. Plus not to mention you're adding a ton of heavy blue mana symbol cards when it's one the least represented colors in the deck so then your mana base/fetching needs become really bad. Being able to cast all the different dragon colors and have double or triple blue mana is just too much to where you'll end up having to take a bunch of unnecessary damage from the mana base. Sure some super generic ones like Swan Song are fine but you're deck should either have all counter spells or none. Going in between just dilutes your deck in my opinion.

Hey! I've trying some changes like the mass reanimation version and I liked a lot. Bot noticed some problems with this version. Teneb, the Harvester is versatile and very interesting dragon/reanimator, but it needed of having haste and mana to user it's ability, so I don't think it will be very useful. Otherwise, great spells like Patriarch's Bidding and Haunting Voyage works nicely, but almost all time suffer some type of counter. To deal with this response, I used counters on deck too, like Mana Drain, Counter spell, Cryptic Command and Negate, to guarantee the use of the big reanimate spells. Also, counters helps to deal with spells like removals, specially when Sneak Attack is dropped down in the table. As you can see, the real deal of this changes was what cards needed to cut off to include counters. I removed Teneb, Klauth's Will, Sarkhan the Masterless (Because when you have a lot of dragons, he becames useless at some point), Sarkhan's Unsealing (needed to cut off), Kindred Discovery (needed to cut off), as example. I'll do more tests, but add counters resolves a lot of problems with enchantments and some stuffs on the field. Maybe I consider to add Heroic Intervention or Swan Song, but you know... ^^" We need more spots hahaha

That is my bad, I thought it was in your haves, sorry. How about Swan Song, Leyline of Anticipation, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Duskmantle Seer, and Exhume.

Always happy to see a Sliver deck, HCO_Guitars. I do have a few suggstions:

  • I'd reconsider the inclusion of Heartstone as it can also benefit your opponents as well. This deck is tagged as being "competitive", so you generally don't want to play spells that are a net benefit for the table - only for you. I'd suggest replacing the previously mentioned with either: Urza's Incubator or Herald's Horn.

  • Virulent Sliver is a wasted slot. Why? Because for you to actually win you'd need to have 10 separate instances of your creatures assigning combat damage to a single opponent for them to actually lose to poison damage. I do see that your deck has a few creature copy effects, but in my personal opinion you need a lot more copy effects for this to be a viable alternate wincon - even in a casual deck. I suggest cutting the card altogether for another counterspell effect like Counterspell, Swan Song, Dovin's Veto or Delay.

I think you could potentially lean in more on the creature copy subtheme of the deck and just go all in on a unique vision for Sliver tribal aggro, but that's just me. +1 for Slivers and good luck in your adventures piloting this iconic tribe.

replacement ideas: - 4 Trespasser's Curse with Thoughtseize - 1 Swan Song with Mishra's Bauble (Tolaria West backup target)

27 non-creatures is crazy high. I understand you wanting counters to boardwipes but there's zero reason to run Cultivate type effects here. I'd also suggest counterspells over something like Akroma's Memorial. Swan Song and Stubborn Denial are 2 really good ones here.

Sakura-Tribe Elder, Wood Elves, Birds of Paradise, Beastcaller Savant (works like morph thanks to haste), and even stuff like Cloud of Faeries/Peregrine Drake (which also work with Morph/Cloudstone) will serve you much much better.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid ⫷PRIMER⫸

You could run some Threats still in line with your them:

Wurmcoil Engine

Kaldra Compleat

Karn, the Great Creator: I love this tool box card but it depends on how people feel about the 10 card sideboard, it isn't officially allowed exactly but cEDH may change that. you can fill the board (10 is generally the accepted number I have seen for the "side") with situationally useful artifacts.

The only other thing I would think of is maybe considering a bit more control like

Dovin's Veto

Render Silent

Counterflux

Swan Song

to give a bit more protection for your strats

Rakdos's Return is always funny but may or may not work here

Sevinne's Reclamation could give some recursion Academy Ruins and Trading Post Too

Aetherflux Reservoir and Time Sieve with Thopter Assembly if you want some combo wombo

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast seems to fit the theme

I am not a fan of the wellsprings, they do fit the them somewhat but can seem dead at times.

I had a couple of others that were in mind but lost them, I will comment if I think of them
