Chandra, Pyromaster Discussion
1 week ago
BS-T Hey thanks for your comment! Here are the choices I made based on your recommandations :
Capricious Efreet stays because it's chaos so it's fun and it's one of the few ways I have to interact with PW and enchantments.
Chandra's Phoenix : out. I like the card but cuts need to be made.
Flametongue Kavu : out. Good card but I'd prefer to do something else at 4 mana.
Goblin Chainwhirler stays because a 3/3 first striker for 3 is decent, it can net me mana depending on how many players we are and it has the potential to remove pesky tokens.
Molten Primordial : out. CMC too high for an unreliable ETB trigger.
Zealous Conscripts : out. I love the card and the potential to take and ultimate a PW, but that's actually a 3/3 haste for 5, so idk.
Chandra, Pyromaster stays because she's card advantage on a budget PW so that's pretty cool :)
Chain Lightning : out.
Seething Song stays because it's typical of red and allows me to have Neheb, the Eternal out T2 with a T1 Mountain + Sol Ring. If I one day decide to put in Simian Spirit Guide, I open the door to a potential T1 Neheb :)
Crystal Ball : out. It was initially there to avoid me having crappy hands over time, but I guess Orrery will do the job better.

This is all stuff I'd consider trim-worthy, mostly just because they are not impactful enough either in the format or in comparison to something else you're already playing:

For Red draw I highly recommend Chandra, Flamecaller.

Have you considered Sign in Blood for Night's Whisper? The double black seems reasonable in that it can allow you to cast Rakdos in a pinch and can reduce casting cost by 2 if he is already out. It is also the most satisfying kill in all of magic.
Angrath, the Flame-Chained is much stronger than Chandra, Pyromaster. His plus generates card advantage for you and causes a loss of 6 life, his minus can knock an opponent out, and his ultimate actually synergizes with Rakdos.

I'd agree that you want to add redundancy to your game plan, as Lagotripha said Living Lore is a good option to do this, you could also consider Chandra, Pyromaster, though getting to the ultimate is a challenge. You might want to consider evasive spells like Distortion Strike or Slip Through Space...
I've seen a deck similar to this before Wildfire Exploits(U/R Control With a Twist) might give you some ideas...

How competitive are you trying to be? Would you prefer to play with what you like, or are you trying to work up to playing in competitive tournaments? Here's a list to take a look into for Skred dragons that won an open:
A couple points I want to say is that I disagree with what people are saying about Blood Moon. It is an amazing card that can completely hose some decks. It can seem like a wasted card sometimes (mono-colored decks, they fetch their basics before it's played, ect). However, look at the list I sent you and let me know just how competitive you want to be. I may have better suggestions after that.
Being that your playing big dragons, you will probably need to go to 23 or 24 lands. One of the biggest problems you will have is keeping a hand. Dragons' weakness is that you will most likely only be playing one a turn, and you have no early game presence. One of the ways around that is to play early game removal in the form of Lightning Bolt, Skred (if you play Snow-Covered Mountain), Draconic Roar and Anger of the Gods or any variants of those (Sweltering Suns, Kozilek's Return, ect).
Another problem you have is if you hand becomes empty, you start top-decking. Red is not known for drawing well. Some of the ways around this are Relic of Progenitus, Mind Stone, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Chandra, Pyromaster and of course the best thing for dragons Sarkhan, Fireblood.
Dragon Tempest is a spicy include. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I like the thought of it. I think it would be interesting to playtest. One of the reasons that makes it obsolete is that the most playable dragons already have haste.
As far as dragons go, the ones I think that are the most competitive for modern are Stormbreath Dragon, Thunderbreak Regent, Thundermaw Hellkite, and potentially Glorybringer. I know that some people are saying that Glorybringer is too slow, and the exert is something that isn't worthwhile in modern. I disagree. The 4 damage has become much more relevant with the newer decks. Granted, I wouldn't play 4, but one or two may be viable. Also, I believe Stormbreath Dragon is superior to Thundermaw Hellkite. I play my own version of Skred red, and I cannot think of any situation where the 1 damage was more relevant than the pro-white. I have won A LOT of games because my opponent's Path to Exile was as dead card because of Stormbreath Dragon.
I think you should take into account all the suggestions thus far and remake your deck, proxy (or buy) and playtest. Go to your LGS on whatever day they play modern and start trying your deck. That will show you what works and what doesn't. If you have any questions just ask. Here's my Skred deck that I've been playing for over 6 years now. This list isn't the same list I started (I've gone through many transformations), but it is a decent competitive mono-red list. I'm not dragon specific though.
Sorry if this was too long. Just laying my initial thoughts.

Some of my choices maybe are better in my meta or in Zirilan of the Claw.
Clarifying some of my suggestions:
Warp World is usually very good against some decks, because it doesnt put planeswalker into play nor allow instant and sorcery spells to be cast. Sometimes I am able to put like 3 dragons replacing lands. It even counts the tokens you create with Lathliss. Only time it would not be good is against Monogreen decks with huge creatures. And it is a very fun card.
Geosurge, Mana Geyser and Seething Song - In my deck I use both Mana geyser and Seething song because I need the mana for activating Zirilan ability. Since You have more creatures than I do, I thought playing the three cards would be good.
Regarding planeswalker, I dont like Chandra, Pyromaster, Sarkhan, Fireblood and Chandra, Torch of Defiance in EDH. They are vulnerable and end up doesnt doing much. My argument about Chandra, Flamecaller is because it impacts the table in the turn she comes to play. And I end up treating her more of a modal sorcery than a Planeswalker. And in my deck Chandra's Ignition didnt work out.
Regarding Dragonspeaker Shaman and similar creatures, I dont like using them because they die to board wipe and are only better than Mana Rocks if you put more than one dragon into play per turn. I would prioritize using artifacts with similar effects like Urza's Incubator, Hazoret's Monument and Herald's Horn. Or even other mana rocks.
Sword of Light and Shadow = In my playstyle I dont care if something dies, because almost all of the dragons are a Threat, so I just wait to draw the next one. And I use card draws in its places, like Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Faithless Looting and the all-star for me Cathartic Reunion.
Some suggestions of dragons you didnt include but I imagine would be good in Lathliss. Glorybringer - This is an all-star, removal and haste in one package. Thundermaw Hellkite - This is a finisher in some matches. Verix Bladewing escalates acording to your mana. The new Demanding Dragon, Thunder Dragon and Tyrant's Familiar can be good too.
Sorry for the big wall of text, and I hope it helps. Monored dragons FTW!!!
