Each Time Spiral card was an homage to at least one previously printed card.
Specifically, each Sliver in Time Spiral and Planar Chaos derive their ability from a previously printed card.

This Sliver is referencing a previous sliver, Metallic Sliver, only larger. The Venser referenced here is Venser, Shaper Savant, a powerful artificer who, like Volrath the Fallen before him, was attempting to use an artificial sliver to study the way the sliver hive mentality worked. During the events of Time Spiral block, his planeswalker spark ignited; he would later appear as Venser, the Sojourner.

Cut Venser some slack guys, he's clearly not a master artificer yet.

Venser... you need to make another one of these. Then let it fall into Phyrexian hands.

Wonder what an Urza's Silver would be like. Poor Venser.

Likely the worst of all slivers.

A plain 3/3 artifact creature for 4 wouldn't have been powercreep either, even though it had a useful creature type in this case.
At least i can't remember Hill Giant ever having been a big threat.

Sad that this doesn't cost 4 mana. A waste of a card like this.

Come on, guys. It still pulls the super-fun-time antics that all other slivers deliver. It just doesn't return the favor.

Well, the slivers would have recognized and rejected too good an artificial sliver. Venser's a genius!

I throw a couple of these in my affinity for artifacts deck in case of surprise slivers. It's expensive, but at 3/3 has higher base stats than most slivers. It's still not -good-, but as an anti-sliver it's passable.
