Here are some more I might trade for:
Order of Succession
Dragonlair Spider
Utter End
Selvala's Stampede
Blasphemous Act
Anguished Unmaking
Noxious Gearhulk
Training Grounds
Rune-Scarred Demon
Darksteel Plate
Cyclonic Rift
Sword of War and Peace
Sword of Feast and Famine

Not in order of preference..js

There are some other cards I might trade for value, but won't be used in any deck I am either making or predicting I will build.

A 6 CMC commander is removal-bait--especially in a voltron deck. Perhaps even more protection would be worth it: Champion's Helm. You have all the other good protectors and more, except for perhaps Darksteel Plate.

Besides that some ramp can help you speed things up, I would also recommend to add more protection for your commander. Cards like:

The commander in this particular build is pretty vital, so give him more cover.

Have fun and good luck!

It doesn't seem like you really need 4 Swift foot boots or the Shadow Sliver. You could take out two boots for two Darksteel Plate to protect the defender sliver, and then instead of the shadow sliver, run another create to attack with, or more ways to help combat slivers, like Cyclonic Rift I would also be careful about the shroud sliver because if they get rid of the defense sliver then you give the other person's shroud thats no fun. So those could come out as well and maybe use Metallic Sliver to steal their effects or Mnemonic Sliver to draw more

Cool deck, +1 for the Darksteel theme. What about Darksteel Plate and Darksteel Ingot?

I also don't agree that you couldn't make this a competitive deck. If you are willing to spend some money and invest in some more impactful cards, I think you could make this deck more competitive. I don't really have any experience with Kor Tribal, but I do know that they do not have any specific lords like the more popular tribal decks like Merfolk (Lord of Atlantis or Elves Elvish Archdruid. However, with the release of Aether Revolt, you now have access to Metallic Mimic, which gives the plus side of allowing your Kor creatures to maintain the +1/+1 counter it gains if Mimic dies. There is also Adaptive Automaton, of course.

Next, I see what you are trying to do with Livewire Lash and Specter's Shroud, but it seems far to situational and is subject to too many variables to seem worth a single spot in your deck, much less a full playset of each. I would consider the various swords like I mentioned in my previous comment, as well as other Equipments like Basilisk Collar, Brawler's Plate, Captain's Claws, Darksteel Plate, Deathrender, and Godsend just to name some.

As far as your core "Kor" creatures go, perhaps consider Kor Outfitter, as it can come down on the field and equip an equipment you already have on the field all in one turn, saving you mana and increasing your tempo. Perhaps consider Lone Missionary in the sideboard against burn.

I would consider putting some or all of the Brave the Elements in the sideboard in order to make room for other cards, perhaps Ghost Quarter to simultaneously increase the consistency of your land drops and improve your matchup against decks like Scapeshift (Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Tron (any of the Urza lands), Infect/Affinity (Inkmoth Nexus), and other decks that have powerful lands or have a fragile manabase.

And finally, for the sideboard, you could consider putting in cards like Leyline of Sanctity for Burn and decks that target you a lot, Disenchant against Affinity and other artifact based decks, and Rest in Peace against decks like Dredge, Living End, and other decks that utilize their graveyard a lot.

I hope I am not coming off as if I am trying to change your deck entirely, because as long as you are happy with you deck that is all that matters. However, if you want to make the deck more competitive, which I believe is achievable, this is the way to do it. I hope this helped and best of luck to you!

Interesting that you've taken Intet down a Dragon-deck path, instead of going with a more traditional dragon commander like Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund or Scion of the Ur-Dragon. I can see the benefit of using her to cheat your creatures out for just three mana.

There's a lot of potential here, but it all depends on how much money you're willing to invest to improve the deck. I have a couple of creatures to suggest that might improve your deck: Dragon Broodmother (she's pricey, though) and Savage Ventmaw. Ventmaw and Hellkite Charger have their own infinite combat combos, by the way. Ventmaw goes infinite with Aggravated Assault creating infinite mana in the process, and Hellkite Charger goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine while also producing infinite mana so long as you have at least 8 mana available through lands. If you object to using infinite combos, I appologize, but I want you to be aware that they exist. As for cards that can leave the deck, you only have 10 sorceries, so unless you really think you get a lot of value out of it, Hypersonic Dragon might not have a place here. I also don't see the purpose of Dack's Duplicate in the context of this deck.

Since you have so many dragons, you could also include some tribal stuff and some other banner effects that could help. Just to name a few, I know of Shared Animosity, Crucible of Fire, Sight of the Scalelords, and Door of Destinies. With the high number of creatures you have, you can also run Lurking Predators; that will make your opponents think twice before they cast spells.

There isn't much here to synergize with Intet herself so that she can be more consistent. To do so, we're looking for cards that can protect Intet and manipulate what she exiles off the top of the library. Unfortunately, doing this also requires some money... I'll give you the list and see what you think: Sensei's Divining Top, Sigiled Starfish, Soothsaying, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Saheeli Rai, Stormcaller of Keranos, Index, Brainstorm, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak, and Clout of the Dominus.

I have a Karrthus Dragon Tribal deck of my own that you can refer to for inspiration. It's Thunder of Dragons. I'm also contstructing an Intet deck with a different strategy, which you can find with this link: Do Dragons Dream of Blazing Sheep?

Angel's Trumpet is an oldie but goodie.

Phyrexian Unlife + Delaying Shield/Melira, Sylvok Outcast combo might work here if you go hardcore and find yourself losing life too quick.

Eternity Vessel and Exquisite Archangel help in that regard as well.

Having an indestructible (cough Stuffy Doll) block with stuff like Godsend with cards like Defensive Formation to do epic stuff.

And lastly, stuff like Avatar of Hope + Indestructibility / Darksteel Plate / Spirit Mantle
