You might like Vanquisher's Banner in the deck, it's a small buff but you get free cards everytime you play a sliver.

X-Factor11105 I honestly can't really say how Blood Fast has been, since I've almost never drawn it. Blerg. In theory it's good; I thought about using Greed, but Blood Fast comes down way earlier, even if it does cost more to activate.

I don't think Mutavault works the way you're thinking (if I'm reading your post right). It can become a dragon to trigger stuff like Utvara Hellkite, but it'll never etb as a dragon for anything else.

Ugh, if Vanquisher's Banner cost like 2 mana less I would consider it, but 5 mana is just too much for that kind of effect IMO. Dragon's Hoard already pretty much fills that slot for me. I've actually also just put Skyline Despot back in, for extra dragon etb's and draw power, but I haven't had a chance to see him in action yet.

There are a few cards such as Adaptive Automaton, Vanquisher's Banner, and Icon of Ancestry that allow you to have tribal supports for any creature type. They might be nice to make up for the very few giant tribal synergies in the game.

Also, Fuzzlewuzzle and iammute, have you both tested Vanquisher's Banner? Five mana is a lot, I'm just trying to think of ways to net card advantage. Species Specialist feels like it won't have enough impact, Pirate's Pillage feels intriguing to me (albeit sorcery speed), and maybe I just need to bring Dragon Mage back into my build.

It's a cool idea, but bustedly abusable if you'd try. Making everything a sliver for example is problematic. Vanquisher's Banner is insane with this. Turntimber Ranger goes infinite with itself. Crux of Fate will be silly. Flamekin Harbinger becomes Worldly Tutor. Gilt-Leaf Archdruid... Those cards are powerful because you need to impose restrictions on your deck to make them effective, but this commander removes all those restrictions entirely. It honestly breaks the game. However, depending how you would build the deck, everything could fall apart if your opponents can keep your commander off the table. You'd be stuck with a bunch of tribal lords without other members of the effected tribes. Very all or nothing.

For a less busted but more balanced and still powerful, similar idea without the need for a custom commander, you could check out this episode of MtGGoldfish' commander clash where the Ur-Dragon deck is a deck that plays a lot of changelings and a lot of seemingly random tribal synergies. The deck is build so, that your creatures mostly already have all creature types, so that you wouldn't need this effect from your commander.
