Pretty impressive list.

Immersturm Predator and Bladewing the Risen are additional BR dragons. Cryptic Gateway and Belbe's Portal can help you cheat out more dragons.

This males sense, maybe try it. A card you could try is Cream of the Crop. It could help you filter for Primal Surge without interupting it if you cast it before. A useful white "ape" is Mirror Entity. Also, Chameleon Colossus is another big beater. Finally, maybe consider Cryptic Gateway and Belbe's Portal to cheat out some big apes.

Something like Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, Nissa, Worldwaker, Yedora, Grave Gardener or Vernal Bloom are cards that will help with ramp. Cryptic Gateway can use tokens to get the bigger bugs into play.

Scroll Rack can help stack your deck for your commander's ability.

As for what to take out that is a little harder and what I always struggle with.

Good luck with adding and taking.

Ok, so Sol Ring is a powerful card. I can understand when you leave it out on purpose, but otherwise, I'd heavily suggest adding it. Great ramp for dragon decks are Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant.

Warstorm Surge is a second Terror of the Peaks. Cryptic Gateway can cheat dragons into play for basically free.

Chaos Warp is red's Beast Within. Draconic Intervention is a great, on flavour boardwipe.

Playing four Dragon's Approach makes no sense. You have to exile five of them for the effect, so that's the minimum. But as you'd want to have a big number of it, you'd basically have to play at least twenty. So maybe drop these and add at least some more lands. 34 is very few. 36 or 37 should be ok.

The rest looks fine. Have fun playing it.

Cool deck, i always like seeing sliver decks, i have one myself. Some suggestions for you Cryptic Gateway allows to to just play some slivers without mana by tapping two other slivers, Pir's Whim is a pretty good card allows you to get any land you want as well as force some "foes" to sac a artifact. Shifting Sliver is a pretty good include.

Cryptic Gateway works muh like Captivating Vampire, as the tapping is part of the cost, meaning it bypasses haste.
