This deck is quite on a budget, first because I mostly used cards I already own... And second 'cause I'm being VERY economic on lands (I already had some Cavern of Souls lying around).

The easy part is that I also already own every single sliver, 'cause they're my favorite creatures since I started playing in 2003 (the first magic card I ever held in my hands was a Plated Sliver). The hard part was choosing which ones I would bring to the table, 'cause I want to play them all!

Long story short: I finally disassembled my beloved legacy Sliver Slaying deck to make a commander, and for three basic reasons:

First: I was rarely using the legacy one.

Second: I am mostly playing EDH.

And third: Like someone once told me, "in commander I can use a lot more slivers, and they're better in play seeing some action than stored in my folder". :)

I guess it's true that I can use more slivers than I was using before, but I still can't use them all... It was a TORTURE to finally reach 37 in this decklist!

About the deck strategy: Search for basic lands, play some slivers, overwhelm your adversaries.

Some cards will make you a 'lil bit safer, like Sliver Hivelord, Darkheart Sliver + Hibernation Sliver, Sedge Sliver or Crypt Sliver, Diffusion Sliver, Ward Sliver, Root Sliver, Frenetic Sliver (in last case scenarios), Crystalline Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Asceticism, Privileged Position and Steely Resolve. I know Crystalline can get in the way of some targeting effects I control, but if it come to this I can return him to my hand or sacrifice him using other abilities. Safety first!

In case of unsafe environment, Necrotic Sliver, Harmonic Sliver, Constricting Sliver, Telekinetic Sliver, Cautery Sliver and Amoeboid Changeling + the commander can control some hazards for you. You can even search for Crib Swap using your commander's ability!

With this deck I can end the game with normal combat damage, commander damage, poison counters (Virulent Sliver) or playing some hard-to-achieve combos with Ashnod's Altar, Heartstone or Training Grounds, Sliver Queen and slivers giving haste and mana generation. Another combo is Paradox Engine with mana generation slivers: The right amount of slivers + your commander can cast your entire deck!

Actually with Basal Sliver + one mana generation sliver + haste I don't even need to reduce the cost of Sliver Queen ability. Just make a token, tap for 1 mana, sac for 2 mana, make a token with one mana floating. Repeat until you have as many mana of any color as you want.

In case of emergency, break the glass with Door to Nothingness. (it already won me a couple games)

I guess that's all I have to say... Upvote for Sliver Hivelord or Crypt Sliver + Supreme Verdict, or for Ghostflame Sliver + All Is Dust (this last one I'm still considering using, but both Ghostflame and All is Dust are kinda useless to me unless played together). :D

Upvote if you wanna gather all the slivers! \o/

P.S.: Which one you guys think it is better, Cautery Sliver, Acidic Sliver or Psionic Sliver?
