Oh, I see!
Flavor is the best reason to keep a card in a list. So Keep Breaking Wave and be happy!
Oh, I forgot to tell you about Oran-Rief, the Vastwood ! It's Novijen, Heart of Progress that enters tapped, but with a free activation cost! You can either have more lands with this is effect or simply replace one for another as you see fit!

My Kumena deck is one of my favorite decks. Very different strategy (and colors), since it likes to go wide to abuse tap/untap effects, but isn't too control-y. But there are some cards that might be useful.
Salvager of Secrets works as both a Merfolk and a Wizard. Deeproot Waters is so good at rebuilding a board if I'm unable to protect it. It also really helps Lullmage Mentor go off, which could also be good with all the counterspells you got. Speaking of, something like Muddle the Mixture can work as another counter spell or a tutor for your many 2 drops.
If you have it or it's within your budget, Kindred Discovery can be a beast at drawing cards. The newer Reflections of Littjara can also really expand your board in really gross ways (making a token copy of Merrow Commerce feels so good in Kumena). If you can reliably get your merfolk tapped, Fallowsage is also very good, but that might just be me thinking of how much work he does with Kumena.

Unless you're playing with some funky homebrew rules, your commander does have to be a legendary creature. For bird tribal, Kangee, Aerie Keeper or Kangee, Sky Warden would be the most obvious choices. Also, Screaming Seahawk does not get around the singleton restriction in the same way something like Relentless Rats does. Even if it did, I still don't think it would be worth running over the much faster Squadron Hawk . More relevant inclusions might be Watcher of the Spheres , Warden of Evos Isle , Soulcatchers' Aerie , Migratory Route , Wingmate Roc , Aven Mimeomancer , Emeria Angel , Favorable Winds , Kangee's Lieutenant , Judge's Familiar , Steel-Plume Marshal , Battle Screech , Skycat Sovereign , Pride of the Clouds , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Jotun Owl Keeper , Windreader Sphinx , Aven Gagglemaster , Thunderclap Wyvern , Jubilant Skybonder , Rally of Wings , Eyes in the Skies , Alrund's Epiphany , Aerial Assault , Rise of Eagles , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Dovescape , Gravitational Shift , Kindred Discovery , Call to the Kindred , Serra the Benevolent , or Seaside Haven .
Looks like my comment is now a little redundant here, but hope the seconded advice still helps. Good luck!

Very awesome deck! I saw your video deck tech in Youtube, very well explained.
I'm also been collecting slivers from a long time, and whe the First Sliver came out I decided to build the EDH deck with him as commander. (My still unfinished deck: THE FIRST SLIVER EVOLUTION)
Now I'm studying how other players have been building and playing EDH sliver decks to try to improve mine, so thanks for sharing yours!
By the way, what do you think about Kindred Discovery as a draw engine similar to Vanquisher's Banner, but giving you even more card draw, and Patriarch's Bidding as a back-up plan mass reanimation effect?

E-Witness is gold. Regrowth is also pretty nice. Swan Song kind of sucks in the fact that it gives them a token that can actually block your big flying lizards. A much better card to run would be Silumgar's Scorn which will basically be Counterspell in your deck, or you could just run Counterspell as well. Icon of Ancestry, Tooth and Nail, and Worldly Tutor are all really strong.
For tutoring/filtering Winding Way is also pretty good, especially if you can find a way to cast it multiple times. That brings me to a pretty fun combo with it and other yard fillers:
As for tribal support/buffs I found these to be the best for dragons:
- Might of the Nephilim can smoke someone if played on your commander
- Mana Echoes can ramp you pretty fast if you are running lower curve dragons especially with Ur's ability
- Mudslide can win you a game flat out if you aren't fighting an opposing flier deck
- Shared Animosity gets out of control pretty fast especially if you have a way of making dragon tokens and comboing with Kindred Charge and Scourge of the Throne for additional combat steps
- Shared Triumph and Favorable Winds are much cheaper CMC anthems and Rally of Wings is a really fun combat trick
- Cover of Darkness cangive all your dragons fear for 2 (I rarely run this since they have flying anyways...)
- Lurking Predators and Descendants' Path are just extreme value
- Kindred Discovery can help you filter through your deck faster
- Kindred Summons will net you a game-ending amount of dragons directly onto the field by the time you have 7 mana to spare on an instant
- Kindred Dominance is basically like having another copy of Crux of Fate and Seismic Rupture can keep the field clear of weenies while not harming your dragons at all
- Rishkar's Expertise doubles as a deck filter and a put onto battlefield card

You might benefit from all those coils with a Kindred Discovery for more card draw. This is an interesting build, and I haven't seen Koma built this way. Thanks for sharing!

I would try and lean heavier into the tribal theme with cards like Vanquisher's Banner or Reflections of Littjara . If you have the money, you could go for cards like Kindred Discovery , Door of Destinies or Herald's Horn . Overall, pretty fun looking deck, +1 from me!
