There are some other "targets" for discard, but I don't think all of these are the best for you. I'll list each of them instead of loads of paragraphs.

  1. Punishing Fire - Could be a replacement for Spit Flame but honestly that's up to you. Punishing Fire is technically more versatile since it hits any target and depending on the matchup it can be easier to retrieve. However, Spit Flame has an easier time removing creatures. This one more to just let you know exists.

  2. Flamewake Phoenix - Again, a card that I'm mentioning just to let you know exists. Since most of your dragons have 4 or more power, you could easily get this card back from your graveyard but you would also deviate a bit from the draconic theme.

  3. Ore-Scale Guardian - This one isn't a target himself, but he makes it more profitable for you to discard lands, specially if you end up being mana flooded.

  4. Runehorn Hellkite - Can be used to refill your hand late game(?) and as he's no diffenrent from other dragons, there's no downside letting him rest in your grave until you active it's effect.

  5. Fiery Temper - Basically adds 3 damage for one mana to all of your discard spells.

These are the monored option. I also have options that would actually require you to splash for black. These are, of course, not mandatory for you to run, but it's always good to get to know more cards.

  1. Bladewing the Risen -A giant dragon that reanimates another one when it comes into play and also has the ability to pump all your dragons. Obviously he's not a target for discard himself. However, he can make other dragons more interesting to discard.

  2. Boneyard Scourge - Pretty simple. Dump him into the graveyard and when one of your dragons die, you get him back for a really cheap cost.

  3. Bone Dragon - A recurrable dragon that can be left in the grave until the late game when it can come back multiple times, assuming you have enough cards in the grave.

  4. Dread Return - By sacrificing 3 Bladewing's Thrall you could get a free reanimation spell since when you get the dragon back from the graveyard you'll also get the Thralls back.

In case you consider any of these black cards or you just don't feel confortable not bein able to cast the Thralls, there are a few budget lands that can help you with the mana. Also, the Haven of the Spirit Dragon could help you cast the black dragons but not activate their abilities.

About the cuts for the Thralls, you are still above 60 cards. There are some other cuts you can also make.

  1. Dragonspeaker Shaman - They're quite expensive and you already have a pretty decent amount of "ramp" and cost discounts. Even more, they're really easy to kill.

  2. Slumbering Dragon - He seems quite tempting to play as he can grow a lot. However, that's the problem, he CAN grow but nothing guarantees he will. Also, only one in the deck won't help at all.

  3. Sarkhan's Triumph - Since you now have more card draw, you could maybe cut one of these.

  4. For the Thralls I'd cut one Spinerock Knoll , Mudslide and the two Dragon Egg s.

Add 1 or 2 Canyon Slough to the Mana base and maybe bump up to 20 lands. Your key spot is the 3 drop slot so you camnot afford to miss any land drops by T3. This should do it.

You are right about Graven Cairns , in fact I would go so far as to add 2x more to this plan because of the utility. Maybe drop the 2x Dragonskull Summit for one more AND 1x copy os Spinerock Knoll.

I don't see the use in adding white as an extra color for a creature here.

What I would do is remove Leonin Squire , Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry . Substitute the creature with one of these: - Trading Post - Skeleton Shard - Fortuitous Find - Myr Retriever , OR - Scrap Trawler

The Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry can be traded out for mountains and swamps, as well as: - Cinder Barrens - Canyon Slough (this has Cycling, so would be good for drawing) - Akoum Refuge - Blackcleave Cliffs - Bloodfell Caves - Dragonskull Summit , AND/OR - Buried Ruin , which would give you additional room to return artifacts

Some lands to consider to improve the mana base: Exotic Orchard , Sheltered Thicket for draw, Canyon Slough for draw, Jund Panorama and Tainted Wood / Tainted Peak should be reliable with the green ramp spells to fetch a basic swamp.

With your commander's triggered ability, you'll want to find ways to stack the top of your deck. Sadly, all of the best stuff to do this is very expensive. The only ones I could find that seem reasonably priced were Cream of the Crop and Haunted Crossroads .

Last One Standing is a cheap boardwipe that will usually get rid of the important stuff. Especially good if someone in your meta plays a tokens deck as it decreases the odds that the only creature standing is anything too troublesome.

Wasitora, Nekoru Queen is on theme and can be additional removal or token generation.

Nice deck, seems strong, the only problem I see regards the lands. I would consider adding some of the following cards: Bloodstained Mire , Prismatic Vista , Canyon Slough , Graven Cairns , Blackcleave Cliffs , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , and maybe Sulfurous Springs ! If you find this helpful, please consider upvoting my deck, A Deal With the Devil EDH! Hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a nice day!
