I feel like you'd be better off with less pingers (tap for damage creatures) and more punishing triggered effects/etb effects on creatures.

Akoum Hellkite , Aria of Flame , Ash Zealot , Bomb Squad , Flameblade Angel (each time your dealt damage by any source with your commander on the ground, it deals 3 damage to that sources commander), Goblin Sharpshooter , Hellrider (same deal as Flameblade but attacking), Invader Parasite , Karplusan Minotaur , Leyline of Lightning , Mindsparker , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Repercussion (works even better since you control the source of damage), Satyr Firedancer (try it with damage based field wipes and you might just clear the table), Stalking Vengeance , Tephraderm , Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Tunnel Ignus , Warstorm Surge

I was gold fishing with this deck and alot of the time I would end up with the worldgorger dragon combo but nothing to spend the mana on. Have you considered adding Retreat to Hagra or Akoum Hellkite to the deck. That way every time worldgorger flickers in and out all your opponents take 1 damage for each land?

One thing to note: see how as we add more cards a mana curve naturally starts to form? That happens just about every deck. I try to maintain the curve that forms unless I have a reason to adjust it. So we'll be cutting cards that disrupt the curve. For example, at this moment we would want to cut cards that cost 6 cmc. But we're not done.

What mistake was corrected?

Hellkite Igniter and Hoarding Dragon are what stood out as weak dragons. Moonveil Dragon , Scourge of the Throne or Thunderbreak Regent fit a utility role currently missing from your Zirilan package.

Akoum Hellkite and/or Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seem appropriate for a mono red deck with 24 mountains.

Is Molten Disaster not a better upgrade to Earthquake? Split second is a powerful ability.

Hmm Akoum Hellkite probably would be a better switch, but either way you're right that Doubling Season is expensive, even with the reprint. Maybe it'll make you too much of a target even if you don't do anything with it right away, but maybe the risk is worth the reward? Akoum Hellkite may be able to stay in if you use it as removal rather than direct damage; it may be useful in that respect.

forneyt I hadn't considered Doubling Season for this deck, but I do see how useful it could by. By my count, 18 cards (including Nesting Dragon) would benefit from its effects... Omnath pumps out an army of 5/5s, Avenger of Zendikar becomes an absolute nightmare, and being able to emblem either of the planeswalkers included on the turn that they enter would be fantastic. It's an expensive card though, perhaps if ultimate masters is kind to me I'll come across one. I'm not so sure I'd take Nesting Dragon's slot with it though. Part of me wouldn't be very happy taking out a card that would benefit from the one which I'm putting in. Making dragon eggs isn't the most exciting or aggressive thing to be doing, but I never mind having a plethora of chump blockers, especially ones that call in a wave of better creatures in the event of a board wipe.I'm actually thinking I might take out Akoum Hellkite. I wanted a creature that gives me direct damage for landfall triggers, but with only 5 mountains I fear I might not get the most out of it.

 Farmert3d I don't quite follow what you meant there.
