Bogardan Hellkite is a good card but I it doesn't really synergise with the artifact theme of this deck.

Always looking for advice to improve the deck. Starting with suggestions on what I could remove for Bogardan Hellkite, Darksteel Forge, Treasure Keeper and Siege-Gang Commander.

You need the better cantrips for starters like Serum Visions and Sleight of Hand, maybe a few Past in Flames for more recursion to draw and play more like traditional storm decks. I like the Spinerock Knolls with the burn package though. You're gonna want better dragons too like Bogardan Hellkite and Furyborn Hellkite. You could use a few dual colored lands like Spirebluff Canal and Shivan Reef if you want to avoid fetches and shocks. You're gonna want a set of Manamorphose for the extra draw and mana fixing, it's a prefect card for storm, it looks like you're keeping this on a budget though so I can see why avoiding a $6 card is preferable.

Hey, I dabble with kaalia in cEDH. Overall, I would highly recommend a stax shell to slow down your opponents, as mardu offers some of the best stax pieces available in the format (Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Rule of Laws, Blood Moons). Kaalia plays well with them as she cheats stuff into play as a pseudo Sneak Attack. Having razaketh has really helped her game as well. I would recommend a combo finisher such as kiki jiki + village bell ringer/restoration angel or Worldgorger Dragon+Animate Dead with an outlet such as Cut, Bogardan Hellkite, or even Shivan Hellkite. Winning with beats is a relevant back up plan as well. Here is my current list for reference

How bad the "ritual-to-dragon" thing is, depends mainly on rituals, for example Chandra, Torch of Defiance, or Koth of the Hammer are both real fine rituals.

Dragons are not that bad.
I would argue that Stormbreath Dragon is one of (if not "THE") best beatstick in modern, because most decks have no way to remove it, it gets huge, and has good chance to sweep small creatures from the board.

And the are some less awesome but "ok" dragons like Thunderbreak Regent. (maybe Mirrorwing Dragon?????)

And more importantly there are really great cards that require you to have dragons, like Silumgar's Scorn - its a modern legal Counterspell (!!!), or a better Logic Knot, but that probably doesn't say much to most people, who don't play (draw-go) control.

The main problem with dragons is the sheer number of tempting cards that "were good in standard" Crucible of Fire, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Bogardan Hellkite to give some examples.

And that doing more viable things seems like giving up on the idea, since they are not named for dragons.

Still dragons are a perfectly good endgame plan for skred.
(And they could probably be fit into the hollow one shell as big payoffs, that would also be nice imho)
