Until end of turn, you may play cards from your graveyard.
If a card would be put into your graveyard from anywhere this turn, exile that card instead.

Yawgmoth's Will Discussion
1 week ago
TrEndKillHerEsy, I tested out Underworld Breach briefly and wasn’t impressed how it worked in the deck. I’d personally rather load my graveyard with silver bullet answers and the creatures I specifically need to win the game. Cards like Entomb and Buried Alive don’t dump enough fodder into the graveyard to get more than one, maybe two cheap spells off, and it usually means exiling creatures I’d like to keep available in the graveyard in addition to expendable cards like fetchlands. I have found great success in appearing to have a relatively “floundering” board state with the deck, where only I know how the one or two key demons I have in the graveyard will work with my cards in hand to steal the win. 20 cards in my graveyard screams that I am a serious threat, and this deck does not play enough protection to weather the combined assault of 3 opponents for very long.
Regarding Altar of Dementia, if I’m going to sacrifice my creatures, I want it to be to Sacrifice and Burnt Offering effects. Living demons are a source of mana investment that aren’t sacrificed when I swing with Rakdos, and the deck uses every shred of alternate mana sources it can get. Sacking a creature just to fill up my graveyard is not worth it to me. If you want to aim for a more all in graveyard strat in the deck, I could see Underworld Breach and Altar of Dementia being very effective.
Lastly, honestly I think you’re right about Yawgmoth's Will. The deck plays enough cheap reanimation, wheel effects, and rituals that it would be very effective even with a limited board state. I’ll have to think about a good cut for it. Thanks for the great suggestion!

So, let's have a look at the type of things you may want.
Lands: So, I can't afford OG duals really, but have found that shocks and fetches, coupled with the battlebond lands have kind of served me well. Fetches can get pricey, but you by no mean need them all. Having 5 or 6 fetches, all the shock lands (10 to 15 bucks each) and then filling it out with something like the battlebond lands can really sort you out. Cavern of Souls is always good, and can see you have one. Basically, lands coming into play untapped are much better. Quicker access to all that slivery goodness. Personally I would look to change those 3 colour tap lands and things like Rupture Spire piece at a time.
Ramp: So, as we are running 5 colour, we want to ramp and rock efficiently to get our board set ASAP. Chromatic Lantern is good, but I would replace the Pillar of Origins with an Arcane Signet. Its just better and less restrictive. For spells, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Three Visits and Skyshroud Claim all enable you to get land type lands. This will let you get your Breeding Pool or Godless Shrine as it has that land type. This is why shock lands (and to a lesser extent triomes) are so much better. You can even get these with the fetchlands too. Luckily, we also have Gemhide Sliver and Manaweft Sliver to turn all our slivers into our own Birds of Paradise
Slivers: So this is a big list here lol. I'm not going to try and write them all lol. I will say that I would cut several of the ones you have though. I would drop Virulent Sliver and replace with a Triumph of the Hordes. Combat tricks are good. Most of the Megantic Sliver effects I would drop I'm favour of things like Door of Destinies. Crystalline Sliver is great to protect your board a bit. Diffusion Sliver I can't see being relevant in a game of edh, and would rather take interaction like Counterspell etc. I think pairing back the creatures to the key ones is really important. Will free up space for stuff like card draw and interaction. Shifting Sliver is basically unblockable. Defo a good one. Necrotic Sliver means each sliver becomes a Vindicate at the cost of 2 and a sacrifice. Synapse Sliver is good to keep your hand full.
Other cards of note:
So just some good cards to consider.
Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Kindred Discovery card draw is important, The Great Henge your commander makes this cost , Phyrexian Arena again, card draw. Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act or other destroy boardwipes. If your stuff is indestructible, all good. Yawgmoth's Will pricey, but such a good answer if you are boardwiped etc. Patriarch's Bidding you are likely to pay off better than most.
I think that's all I got for now. Please look at other decks with slivers as well to get a good idea of the stuff out there. Hope this is a good start of things to look at

RambIe - you should be building around Ad Nauseam you're not just putting a random 20+ cards in your hand. It should all be positive rocks, 0 cost rocks and free spells. You should be able to storm off and nuke people with the reservoir. I've done it a number of times and it's a lot of fun. There was even an instance I was able to gain enough life and use Yawgmoth's Will to Ad Nauseam again - was it necessary to win? No. Was it super fun? Hell yes.

Magus of the Will is budget Yawgmoth's Will on a body that can be reanimated by Muldrotha. It lets you play instants and sorceries in your graveyard. Usually these will be big reanimation spells. Very effective with Splendid Reclamation and Early Harvest. You need to reanimate all lands in the graveyard and untap most of them in this way, but once you do you have access to a lot of mana and the ability to play the rest of the good stuff in the graveyard such as Rise of the Dark Realms. This leads to the big finisher:
Reanimate all creatures and bring back Prime Speaker Zegana, Sewer Nemesis, and Laboratory Maniac --> Draw cards equal to the number of cards in your graveyard. If that number is bigger than your library, you win. Add Disciple of Bolas to double the card draw.

Cards in your hand gain cycling until end of turn. The cycling cost is exile four other cards with a cycling ability from your graveyard. (Cards are only eligible to be exiled this way if they have a native cycling ability.)
Yeah, it's probably broken somehow. It's kind of a dope idea though, if I do say so myself. Like if Yawgmoth's Will and Underworld Breach had a kid, and that kid was raised by Tectonic Reformation. Now that's a crazy thought.
Create a mono-white card that drains life.

The deck seems to be going in too many directions at once to function effectively. I think, my best advice would be to eliminate the +1/+1 strategy, because you aren't really leaning into it and it doesn't create good synergy with your commander. I might even drop the green out altogether and pick a different partner commander ensuring black is in the color identity, such as Vial Smasher the Fierce.
If it was me, I'd lean heavily into pushing cards into your graveyard and then recurring them in multiple ways. You want transmute there with Ramirez to reuse already. I'd want want to dump a lot of the current draw package and instead pull in discard draw to push more cards to your graveyard for recursion. The red in Vial Smasher the Fierce would allow you to easily lean into this with draw like Tormenting Voice, Faithless Looting, Intuition and the 20 other options just like it. Then package in a more effective recursion suite, such as Phyrexian Reclamation, Animate Dead, Reanimate, Unburial Rites or Yawgmoth's Will. I don't think a transmute sub-theme is a problem. You might be able to lean into in some games, but there definitely aren't enough good transmute cards to be the main theme. For wincon, you could go more voltron and Vial Smasher the Fierce is beneficial in this by being a damage dealer on its own. For Voltron, I'd focus on pump spells and trample givers that are one-time spends that you can then pull back to your and rinse and repeat.
Thanks for using custom sorting. I always find it so much easier to review a deck that way.

That being said, I think the life loss should be a payment and I think it should be connected to using the Threshold ability. Otherwise you are bound to this cost whenever using other effects that casts from the graveyard, say flashback or retrace or plain ol' Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. I don't think Gix should taint your graveyard for effects he doesn't cause.
