Guild Summit won't do much in this deck as you only have 1 guildgate in the deck. Outpost Siege , while getting you cards you can cast from exile, isn't technically drawing them so doesn't trigger your commander's ability.

Brainstorm is card draw that pretty much becomes Lightning Bolt as well with this commander.

Cards like Direct Current and Bombard are not great removal in the EDH format as too much of what you want to remove is way too big for that minimal damage. If you want to keep a bolt effect, Bombard should become Spit Flame because you could potentially recur it by casting your commander or one of the handful of dragons you have in the 99.

Some EDH removal staples include: Chaos Warp , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization and Reality Shift for targeted removal and you will also want a couple of boardwipes such as Blasphemous Act , Hour of Devastation , Earthquake or Chain Reaction .

I'd cut some of the creatures like Leapfrog to go with more instants and sorceries to take advantage of your commander's last line of text. Expansion / Explosion is one I'd strongly consider.

Some cards that work with all versions of Niv: Basilisk Collar and Gorgon Flail to give his pinging ability deathtouch for boardcontrol and Curiosity is a superior engine for him.

And considering his casting cost, I'd look to add a Gilded Lotus to the deck as you could easily get stuck with not having enough of one of your colors.

Not quite sure what your budget is, but a reanimation package usually works well in a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck. I always liked Fated Return for instant speed tricks or indestructible.

Speaking of indestructible Soul of New Phyrexia is a good card to make sure your board of scary dragons doesn't get wrath'ed away.

Another option to give you haste is Hammer of Purphoros

Mana rocks are good, drawing cards is good. I think the Dragon's Hoard should be in this to solve both issues.

I'm intrigued by Bring to Light in this deck. I guess it is a cheap tutor, but is seems limited. I would love you hear how you use it.

There are some fun combos pieces that work with different dragons Bear Umbra , Curiosity (are you planning to add Niv-Mizzet, Parun ?), and Tainted Strike ; are you able to get them to work that often? If not, they may be the cards to cut.

MoronPlayz, ChupaNahBrah, thank you for some feedback! I appreciate it. I'll look into making some changes, I've been trying to slim down the deck and streamline it, but it always helps to have some outside input! I had Curiosity in there to trigger the infinite combo with the niv-mizzet dragons, does it still trigger with the Phyrexian Arena ? Herald's Horn looks solid, I'll have to grab some of those, seems like it would be good in any tribal deck really.. I'll look around for more wizards, thanks again !

This seems like a really tough quest. (It also looks almost identical to my fist magic deck, lol.)

I don't really have a lot of help to offer here other than saying I think you are correct with your describtion, and that Curiosity does nothing in this deck atm.

I think you should try out either Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Both tend to control the board until they can win with either Curiosity or Ophidian Eye . OG Niv is easier on a budget mana base, but paying more for new miv might be preferable for you if you're okay not turbo'ing him out and playing a slower game. Mizzix of the Izmagnus is also very combo-y if you're into Izzet. If you want to go Temur, Animar, Soul of Elements is typically build as a combo deck using Ancestral Statue to go infinite, and the popular Animorphs build is very budget friendly and lends itself well to the Pickles Lock combo of Brine Elemental + Vesuvan Shapeshifter . The Gates deck is a control deck that wins with your favorite one-card combo, Scapeshift . It's a one-trick pony, but if you're into it, I would build it with Child of Alara at the helm. Riku of Two Reflections might be for you if you just want all the value until you can find whatever wincon you like. Finally, if it's the rampy, storm bit you like about Nic Fit and Scapeshift, I love my Tatyova, Benthic Druid druid tribal deck. Chaining land ramp and drawing cards feels very stormy, even more so when going off with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , Guardian Project , or Beast Whisperer with Seton, Krosan Protector , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Stone-Seeder Hierophant , or Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip.

Nice deck, but since you already run Curiosity , how do you feel about Ophidian Eye , Tandem Lookout , and Drift of Phantasms to fetch them out?
