This was a hard deck to figure out. It was originally
3 colors with more 1CC slivers. That wasn't powerful enough, so I upped it to 4 colors. But at that point it's hard to get the mana right. But then I thought about Sphere and Star and the fact that they cantrip.
They do slow you down a tad, but I find that you'll always have a color in your early hand that matches some cards, so you can play fast early on and then use left-over mana to prepare for the next turn. Star cantrips even if destroyed. The added muscle of Bonesplitter makes the deck's slower start worth it.
Multiple Muscle Slivers and Sinew Slivers get the job done as well. Crystalline Sliver is a very powerful card in the format of Lightning Bolts and Faith's Fetters, ensuring that your slivers will be left alone (remember there's not much mass removal in this format). Winged and Shadow give your guys evasion.
The deck can be pretty scary. I know I'm committing a mortal sin by not running Virulent but it just wasn't right for this deck. Pentad Prism is another thought I had, but I like the cantrips drawing me into more slivers.
