I need a serif font that just fits nice with Egyptian Slate typeface:
I also use Slate (sans)
Thank you very much in advance!
I think Design or General Discussions are a better place for such request.

Hrant, a pretty bold move pairing two slabs...
Frankly, I'm not good at font pairing.
I usually pair serif heading with sans body, or vice versa. If you really need to go with a serif, how about Caslon?
@riccard0 – It could have been worse. My favourite, PT Serif, is a slab, IIRC.
Egyptians were originally (early 19th century) the bold for Scotch, which makes sense as a pairing, because unless your accompanying serif has high contrast, there isn’t sufﬁcient distinction between one serif face and the other.
However, if your display face is a bold Egyptian, you can use just about any serif style for body text.
Thanks for answers and clarifications.
I think Utopia suites up nice.
Also, Laurentian, from same designer of Slate works well.
The mentioned Egyptian is used for some bold headlines and uppercase captions.
