Dragonspeaker Shaman is needed cost reduction for your scaled beasties though looking on Card Kingdom.com, the price on this is a bit higher than I would have guessed. Would still be a very good investment for the deck.
Icon of Ancestry is an anthem and search for more dragons.
You really need more artifact ramp here. Budget options [under $1] include: Star Compass , Mana Geode , Pillar of Origins and Hedron Archive . If you're willing to bump up and spend more than $1 per rock: Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Wayfarer's Bauble and Fire Diamond are more powerful options. Sol Ring is an obvious choice as well and if you can afford to splurge on one, I would.
By Force is a really nice mass artifact removal spell that will go a long way towards slowing down the table to give you time to launch the dragon airforce.
Too bad on Sundial of the Infinite , it would really make the deck much better by mitigating Zirilan's drawback.

RECENT UPDATES: Pillar of Origins out Extraplanar Lens in (as well as snow lands), Reito Lantern sadly out cause i like this one but it was never as handy as I wanted it to be so Empowered Autogenerator is in adding to the ramp package. Ive also added Mirage Mirror and Grip of Chaos replacing Minion Reflector and somthing else i cant remember tho, Grip of Chaos i havnt played yet but its mainly there for fun till i find somthing better.

Sheltered Thicket has two types, mountain and forest, so it helps with Kird Ape . Maybe you can focus on your lands to surprise your adversary with Primal Bellow , you may try Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds . Or, following the shout style: Roar of the Crowd .
In fact this deck can use a lot of cards ideas. So I believe you will maintain it opened for new ideas you may have for quite a while.

My first modern deck how Humanity works. by using raging aggro by putting stuff like Thraben Inspector , Boros Elite and buff them with stuff like Coat of Arms or Honor of the Pure could be good late-game buffs.
Removals- In this case, there will be no stuff like Path to Exile because it's kinda budget so I've have decided to put stuff like Fiend Hunter , Banisher Priest or fast spell-like Celestial Purge , Seal Away , Sunlance etc.
Mana ramp- Since this an aggro deck so it should include too much mana ramp for the help, But this case for sparing I've have decided to include Talisman of Hierarchy , Pillar of Origins for an emergency.

Do you play a particular format, or just kitchen table with friends?
Either way your mana curve could use a bit of work. you have a lot of 3 and 5 cmc cards in here. I don't know what kind of card pool/budget you have access to, but you may consider some generic tribal support cards, such as: Steely Resolve , Descendants' Path , Stoneforge Masterwork , or Pillar of Origins .
Given how much token generation you have in here, Parallel Lives could be worth looking at as well.
You may also want to run a few more lands. 20 is pretty slim. I'd recommend 2-4 more probably, unless you include some ramping options, like the previously mentioned Pillar of Origins , or effects like Rampant Growth .
This looks fun though. I love seeing people brew with unusual tribes.

Mirari's Wake is super slow and couuld be cheaper ramp. I don't know how you feel about running non-sliver cards, but stuff like Birds of Paradise , Avacyn's Pilgrim , Elves of Deep Shadow , etc. should be here. More low end ramp means yo ucan get your commander down faster which means spewing out slivers sooner.
Would recommend swapping Rupture Spire out with Mana Confluence . I don't think you need ot be running 38 lands, especially if you work to pull your curve down a bit (try targetting something more like 2.5 average CMC). In that case you could free up 2-3 lands for other cards.

I know some of these get up to the $10-$15 mark but worth checking out. Also check out ixalan block or commander 17 has some more generic tribal things.

Pretty much any mana rock will be better than Manalith . You may have enough other ramp to just drop it entirely though you could replace with something with cheaper CMC like Pillar of Origins or Coldsteel Heart .
You could really use some additional removal. Some suggestions: Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile will permanently get rid of a creature; Vandalblast , Wear / Tear , Crush Contraband , Force of Vigor , Krosan Grip are all good ways to deal with problematic artifacts and/or enchantments; Beast Within and Chaos Warp are great catch-alls. You obviously don't need all of these but you should think about adding 2-3 so you have a chance to break up some decks' gameplans.
