Do you know why I love slivers?
They are great fun bringers
They have poison and blades and wings
They are legions and queens and kings
They have overlords and can tutor up their kin
They just swarm and grow if you let them begin
So don’t be afraid of my one-armed friend
They have poultice dudes with them to mend
They have acid and fungus and wakes of flame
They will just keep growing till I win the game
With fury and hides full of gems or crystal skin
A shifting sliver lets me swing for the win.
Aura shards and vindicate and psionic entity
And mistform beasts to take your identity
Reflex, roots, shadows and sedge
Toxin, two heads, victual, vampiric and sledge
Barbed and armored, watcher and ward
No matter which, each is a lord
Haste, trample, firebreathing, first strike
Flanking, buffs, provoke and psych
Regenerate, shroud, draw and lifelink
Frenzy, mill, reach and blink
Shade, mana, shadow and reach
Flying shadow, protection and leech
But do you know the best thing of my army’s twin... (see all)

Make an EDH sliver deck and make this guy your general. I guarantee your friends will never want to play EDH again.

I am happy. The premium deck that I bought has two sliver overlords. Nothing else is missing but I got two.

Find your amoebic changeling and use it to take over any of your opponents creatures for 3 and tapping the amoebic changeling.

Lol-z combo...

Bazaar Trader and Hivestone, give the hivestone to them, pull out your Sliver Overlord, start taking all their creatures.

- They can't reprint Sliver Queen since the card is on the "Reserved List", i. e. a list of cards that WotC doesn't want to reprint, ever.

- "Legendary" does not equal "good"

- I'd also expected to see some new Art on the Overlord.

- Now to the Card:
It's tutoring Ability is great in late game. Too bad you can't take over your opponents creatures when you have Crystaline or Ward Sliver out. Wins the Mirror Match, Antisliver-Sliver.

How can you say it's not good? A 7/7 for WUBRG is pretty good on its face, plus it gets ALL the bonuses of every sliver you have already played, plus it can tutor for any of the myriad slivers that exist in your deck to solve any problem you need to.

This+training grounds+shields of velis vel = 1: gain control of an opponents creature, it has +0/+1 until end of turn.

It's not that Wizards doesn't want to reprint cards on the reserve list (in fact there are a number of cards on it they DO want to print again), it's that they promised they wouldn't reprint them to preserve the secondary market and have the integrity to stand by their word.
