For global haste you can use Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, and Urabrask the Hidden who will also conveniently turn off other people's haste. Anger and Barbarian Class also give haste after more effort.
Ant Queen, Artifact Mutation, Battle Hymn, Circle of Dreams Druid, Dragon Broodmother, Pest Infestation, Scute Swarm, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Termagant Swarm are all useful if you can give haste to all of them.
Birds of Paradise is just the best mana dork.
You have green, so you might as well use the standard ramp package with Cultivate , Kodama's Reach, Explore , Farseek, , Rampant Growth, Three Visits and Nature's Lore. Probably ignore most mana rocks, because people are going to want to vandalblast you just because of the treasures.
Relentless Assault, Scourge of the Throne, Combat Celebrant, Hexplate Wallbreaker, World at War grant extra combats, with Hellkite Charger and Aggravated Assault potentially going infinite.
Vandalblast goes in every red deck. Even though youll have a ton of treasures i'd still run Brotherhood's End too
For draw spells consider Scroll Rack, Garruk's Uprising, Elemental Bond, Soul's Majesty, Furious Rise, Rishkar's Expertise, Beast Whisperer, Shamanic Revelation, Disciple of Bolas, Pact of the Serpent, Painful Truths, Harmonize, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Damnable Pact, Commune with Lava, Lifeblood Hydra, or maybe Necropotence although the color restricion on necro is tough, treasures should take care of it.
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Flip, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer , The Reaver Cleaver , Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge , Ancient Copper Dragon , Old Gnawbone Ziatora, the Incinerator for more treasure makers. Pyrohemia and Pestilence could be fun with the extra mana. Awaken the Woods is an amazing x spell too, but wont appreciate the two aforementioned cards.
If you're using magda the deck will benefit from dragons and expensive artifacts. throw in Imperial Recruiter and Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Demonic Tutor all go in your colors. so you can get her more consistently. Darksteel Forge and Gate to Phyrexia can be tutored into play with her for five treasure.
If you use dragons, you could add Dragonstorm, but you should carefully consider how many cheap spells you expect to be able to cast if you arent building specifically towards this card. Chatterstorm, Empty the Warrens, Yawgmoth's Will, Jeska's Will, Mana Geyser, and Manamorphose, Past in Flames are all good on their own and would add synergy.
If it ends up dragon tribal, cards like Crippling Fear , Kindred Dominance, Crux of Fate
Swashbuckler Extraordinaire is a very good payoff for using treasures if you dont use certain other nightmarish dragons like Atarka, World Render, Blast-Furnace Hellkite, Terror of Mount Velus, Thrakkus the Butcher

The main problem I see is how you plan to reliably play Shivan Dragon and keep it in play. As he's your hidden commander, I would suggest splashing black. Black will let you reliably tutor for him and allow a couple/few recursion spells if he's killed. An added bonus of adding black is you also get to run Crux of Fate as a solid board wipe and Kaya's Ghostform as another protection piece.
A card to consider for the deck itself, is Leyline Tyrant. His red mana storage works well with Shivan's Firebreathing.
Edit: As a side note, you could consider running Shivan as your commander with a white background under a rule 0 situation. This would admittedly make him more difficult to play, it would solve the 'finding/getting him problem.'

I use to play this precon. I am not a fan of O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami as a card. The effect is way too narrow and you'll have a better chance just running a hard removal spell like Beast Within
I liked Dragonlord's Prerogative as a nice refuel card.
And lastly, I think Crux of Fate is far superior than Day of Judgment because it acts as a one sided board wipe

I get the feeling that you're not into wiping the board, but I suspect Crux of Fate would probably fit. You can even dig it out with Bring to Light, wiping non-Dragons will miss your Commander (if you had to cast) and any Changelings while wiping most other creatures.
I think you've got enough non-Changelings to make digging out Maskwood Nexus pretty solid, maybe Wargate? There are lots of other ways to dig out The World Tree fwiw, many pretty affordable, if you can set up both Tree and Nexus (and have lots of mana) you should win on the spot, and it's not even 'infinite combo'. Wargate is just a nice fit because it can find any permanent, so in a pinch it can also just ramp out a land for 3 mana, iirc that's better than the going rate for non-basic ramp.
With your CMC of 9 Commander, you might consider Stinging Study, it's like a tiny Ad Nauseum that costs way less life, works without casting your Commander too.
It's a bit of a weird fit (and is big and clunky), but Avenger of Zendikar is really good in a higher land count Changeling deck, each land pumps your Changelings for you too, in addition to making a bunch of blockers. I run it with some budget fetches like Krosan Verge, which can find non-basics like duals or triomes for great fixing, Myriad Landscape which is okay fixing because it can find Green, and Blighted Woodland which I feel has a low opportunity cost as it'll ramp me as an instant if kept mana up for something and didn't need it.
It's a bit small, but Scarecrone can be a so-so card if you ever decide to toss Haakon in, with your Eminence ability you can recast Universal Automaton for free, so it's just 1 to draw a card and get a sacrifice/death trigger.
If you don't want to run actual counters, you might sneak a Patron Wizard in to help deal with wipes, you've got some Vigilance sources even.

In: Gix's Command
Out: Crux of Fate
Wasn't entirely sure what to take out to play test Gix's Command, so just swapped it for a board wipe for now.

I definitely second the MTGO idea if you have no nearby game stores. It's definitely not the same as playing in person, but it works. There is also Spelltable for webcam games. Anyways, onto some deck suggestions:
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury is a really strong Rakdos dragon since it pumps your team.
I personally have removed Urza's Incubator from my dragon tribal deck. There has been a pretty significant uptick in dragon decks lately due to recent sets and the symmetrical effect has become much more of a liability. I would replace it with Herald's Horn. You still get cost reduction, but with some card advantage thrown onto it.
Speaking of card advantage, I think you could use a lot more. Atsushi, the Blazing Sky is both a dragon and card advantage. Solemn Simulacrum is both ramp and card draw. Stinging Study is 5 mana, draw 5 for you at instant speed. I always advocate for black decks to run Read the Bones. It's still one of the best card draw cards in black.
Lastly, a litte more interaction could go a long ways. Crux of Fate is a fantastic board wipe for dragon tribal, and a Bedevil and Terminate would go a long way. If you want to get really spicy, Wrathful Red Dragon + either Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction is hilarious.
Good luck deck building! It looks like a fun build.

Ah, my girls! I love to see someone else's take on them. Another good boardwipe could be Crux of Fate.
