Catacomb Dragon Discussion

There is still plenty of color less tribal support like Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator so I don't think cost reduction will be much of an issue for the deck. Without green you will need to rely on artifacts more for ramping though.

As for powerful creatures you will have both Silumgars one Ojutais as well as the smaller dragons from their respective Tarkir broods.

Outside of that block you have good old "Skittles" Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon as well as Scalelord Reckoner and Sunscorch Regent from Tarkir. Boneyard Scourge is a nice repeatable dragon so you always have a body. Some oldie but could see come use are Catacomb Dragon.

You have the three star dragons with Keiga, Kokusho, and Yosei who all have really good death triggers.

You will also have access to blue so going with some clones like Spark Double and Clever Impersonator. Mirror Mockery will have some interesting interactions with each of the star dragons and Dragonlord Silumgar

Day of the Dragons could also be a fairly interesting 'meme' card for the deck if you are trying to have some fun.

There is nothing here I hate but there are some extra cards you should consider replacing Catacomb Dragon .

Dragonlord Dromoka is a great way of shutting out your opponents on your turn. Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is one of those double edged swords that I love about dragons. Haste and mind controlling all dragons is fantastic. However you can get destroyed by a Bribery . Dragonlord Kolaghan is another haste enabler that can hose some of the more janky strategies such as Rat Colony or Persistent Petitioners . Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire is also another great way to get around indestructible or remove really annoying permanents. Urza's Incubator is another great cost reduction to really bring down the cost.

If you are struggling to find cuts, just think about what you would rather draw off the top in a tight spot.

You have Nissa Revane and not Nissa's Chosen? You should have 4 of him if you have Nissa Revane. Here is another dump of cards that are cool too. Necromaster Dragon, Taigam, Ojutai Master, Catacomb Dragon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Siege Dragon, Rith, the Awakener, Crosis, the Purger, Utvara Hellkite (He is one of my favorites!), Mana-Charged Dragon, Vampiric Dragon, Death by Dragons, Dragonmaster Outcast, Knight of New Alara, Conflux, Kilnmouth Dragon (Drop him first and then you have never ending burn spells), Two-Headed Dragon, Flameblast Dragon. I have time on the bus ride home by the way. lol

Sweet deck, man. If you want more dragons, you could try Catacomb Dragon. Also, I see that you have Dragon Breath in there, and you might be interested in Dragon Shadow. Adding "Fear" to creatures that already have "Flying" gives them great evasion. Depending on your playgroup, you might like Balthor the Defiled as well.

This deck looks lots of fun. A card that could be possibly fun is Catacomb Dragon as with Silumgar in play it would be very hard to block.

As for dragons.. this is where it gets fun.
Bladewing the Risen, Boltwing Marauder, Catacomb Dragon, Cunning Breezedancer, Darigaaz, the Igniter-->one of my EDH Deck Commanders, Kilnmouth Dragon, and one of my personal favorite mechanics and edh deck commander Teneb, the Harvester.
