Destroy all creatures, then create an X/X colourless Horror artifact creature token, where X is the number of creatures destroyed this way.
Phyrexian Rebirth Discussion

Just to be evil, you could put in a few Drove of Elves so you have some cheap infinity/infinity's once you get the squirrel setup. In a similar vein, if it's worth making the deck Green/White, a Festival of Trokin will give you infinite life for one white mana with the infinite squirrels, and Shanna, Sisay's Legacy provides a cheaper albeit white alternative to Drove of Elves. While the potential infinity/infinity creatures are just potential bastard moves, Festival of Trokin is actually very useful if you just got the squirrel setup the turn before your opponent would destroy you with flying creatures, and you cannot make them flying before you would die. Nonetheless, all of these will make powerful combos with infinite squirrels, especially considering they are stupidly cheap for their broken potential and you keep the squirrels.
I should also mention that there are some alternatives that cost a little more, but cause board wipes in addition to the mentioned buffs in exchange for the deaths of your squirrels. Phyrexian Rebirth will give you a white infinity/infinity artifact creature, and Fumigate gives you infinite life, but both require your squirrels to not have Indestructible. Not sure if those would work well with this deck in particular, considering it aims to make the squirrels indestructible, but they might help.

May I suggest the following?: Counterspell Negate Swan Song Delay as for the counters. They're just a must have in a blue controllish scenario when you want to avoid any trouble until you have your commander out. But they're also useful in the later stages of the game when you want to "nope" the key/finisher cards of your opponent(s). Blue is also known for it's draw power: Mystic Remora (the more affordable) and Rhystic Study both really shine in MP sessions.
White has also some nice control enchantments like: Oblivion Ring
, Banishing Light , Hieromancer's Cage , Stasis Snare or Suspension Field . I suggest to add one or two, to exile the biggest threat IF necessary (I'm looking at you generic Eldrazi with anihilator 4) You have 38 creatures in the deck. With Patriarch's Bidding you already have an excellent ressurection option IF ever needed (with this creature stock) so maybe taking out Lifeline and adding some ramp like Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone , Coalition Relic or even Herald's Horn to reduce the mana cost of your slivers. Aggro decks (naturally) tend to attract more attention on the table. You also want to protect yourself from massive board-wipes with maybe Teferi's Protection , Boros Charm or Heroic Intervention . But use them yourself Planar Cleansing , Phyrexian Rebirth or Merciless Eviction should be some nice sideboard add's when facing maybe goblin's or vampires (also very aggro tribes) I'd rather run (target) permanent removals: Assassin's Trophy , Generous Gift , Beast Within than tutors (but this is a very personal choice) because your commander already is tutoring up all the other needs. Maybe add one more land tutor. Skyshroud Claim for example. first sliver could cascade you a massive amount of creatures in just one big scoop. A must have. Also maybe reduce the amount of the +/+ Slivers to get some room for the more necessary ramp and control you need to stabilize your game. I hope this helps to stabilize your gameplan. HF

Okay, let's give a few starters.. Adding Rienne seems to be not such a great choice. Your amount of multicoloured creatures is, aside from her, only 9... and you should remove Tahngarth, First Mate for sure, perhaps Emmara Tandris too, since the big tokens might nog necessarily care TOO much for not receiving damage, especially for 7 mana. So I'd take Rienne out.
Taking out Hate Mirage also doesn't seem like a great idea. You have the ability to copy your opponents creatures and at least smack people in the face with them. Imagine some of your opponents playing either giant legendary Eldrazi or powerful ETB creatures. The best part though is that, if non-legendary, you can populate those creatures you were only gonna have for a turn...and make the populated token stay. Populating the token does NOT copy the exile clause of Hate Mirage, or any other sortlike clauses on red copy spells. Turning powerful creatures this way into tokens is a surefire way of your opponents going "oh-ooh..".
Desolation Twin is a doubting case... yes it costs 10.. but you are in green for ramp and probably want something like a Mirari's Wake anyway.. so it might be a good card. Plus if you somehow mill or discard it, a Feldon of the Third Path or Seance (which might be a worthwhile inclusion as well) can suddenly get you 20/20 on the board divided over 2 bodies. And each time you populate, you give yourself an additional 20/20.
Your deck now contains a single boardwipe in the form of Hour of Reckoning . I'd include 1-2 more in. Yes, you are very heavy on creatures and you would like to keep your board... but if you ever find yourself against such a powerful board, maybe even multiple times in a game, and it's wipe or lose... a 1/99 chance to draw your only boardwipe won't cut it. So to stay in token theme though, I'd add your removed Phyrexian Rebirth and perhaps, thought they are tiny, Martial Coup will give you at least 5 1/1s after wiping the board. It's something.
For the rest:
Trostani's Judgement (exile and synergy with deck.. but too expensive for single target removal). Replace that with something like Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile . Yes you ramp/let your opponent live longer... but at the same time you make sure you don't die to something you want to get rid off, NOW, for only a single mana you might have had left over somehow.
Alot more, but this comment is probably already getting a bit too long...

I agree with SP3CTR3_chelts I think you can go down to 36-37 lands pretty easily. I would also look at getting a few dual lands as well. Some fairly budget ones are Tainted Field , Scoured Barrens , Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard , Caves of Koilos and Shambling Vent . They will help make sure you have the colors you need and let you get away with having less land. I know buying lands is not always the most fun way to spend your money, but it's almost always worth it.
I noticed you only have 1 board wipe, and would suggest a couple more. I really like Fumigate and Phyrexian Rebirth since they either gain you life or leave you with a big creature token. Also, Swords to Plowshares is only a couple bucks and the best creature removal you can get for commander.

i love marath he was my commander forever for my beast tribal deck but then i decided to go with Samut, Voice of Dissent because it functions a little better for me. i see you have Where Ancients Tread why not Warstorm Surge instead or both but if you only want to run one i would go with warstorm it does not limit you on size. instead of planar cleansing how about Phyrexian Rebirth it's a good wipe and a little cheaper also there is Wrath of God which is great Decimate is good also and Nevinyrral's Disk . A good tutor would be Chord of Calling or Green Sun's Zenith i think chord is a little better though. i see you have primal vigor but what about Parallel Lives and Doubling Season and Anointed Procession are super good but doubling season is a little costly. just some thoughts like the deck here is mine even though i don't run marath anymore Beastiality (beast tribal)

More nonbasic lands added.

The cuts I suggested to Stone:
Explosive Vegetation (you could still run this, Route's just better)
And my suggested additions:
Skullclamp (my very favorite)
Just suggestions as always. The curve is waaayyy too shallow to be consistent.
