Draconic Roar Discussion

Even though cycling is important to ditch bricks in your hand, it's also good to have targets that incentivise you to discard, like Bladewing's Thrall .
I know it may look like without being able to cast it that's an uselees card. However, since you're adding discard spells to the deck, it becomes possible to effectively use it. Also, you'd never want to cast it anyway. Four mana por a "vanilla" 3/3 is never a good deal.
Another good discard target would be Anger . By having it in your graveyard all of your creatures automatically have haste, regardless of their types, while also not requiring any mana investiment. Just to provide an example:
- Turn 2 and you have two mana. Instead of spending two mana to cast Dragon Tempest and "losing" the turn, by discarding Anger through Faithless Looting or Cathartic Reunion you'll have simultaneously set up your creatures to have haste while also getting card advantage.
Still on the discard topic, there is a card that can also help you cycle through your deck while cheapening the cost of your dragons, and that is Hazoret's Monument . It's more resilient than Dragonspeaker Shaman and reduces the cost of all of red creatures instead of just dragons.
A great card for any dragon deck is Thunderbreak Regent as it's cheap and gives amazing protection to your dragons.

Silverdrake thanks again for helping me with my decks.
The initial version had both Lathliss, Dragon Queen and Draconic Roar . I took Lathliss out because i could never really cast it and gain value out of her because of either mana issues or just if i was losing she wasn't saving me and if i was winning she wasn't doing anything that really mattered anyways. Draconic roar felt very bad against mono green stompy and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip so i took it out in favor of Dreadbore that also hits random Nissas and Okos. I didn't get to try Demanding Dragon , what is it good against? I imagine it being good against 0 creatures decks.
Let me know what you think about my reasonings :)

Looks fun! Surprised to not see a 1-2 of Lathliss, Dragon Queen though. Demanding Dragon could find a home in here, too. Probably Draconic Roar as well, if you're looking for more removal to help you survive

Draconic Roar is a two for one in dragon decks. Foul-Tongue Invocation is also extremely important as it gains you life you're going to need against the aggro decks who can kill you before you drop your first dragon.

It deals 3 damage to target creature. I may reveal a Dragon, or if I control a Dragon (As it resolves) it deals 3 damage to that creature's controller.
Now, it doesn't say "In addition to" or "instead". It merely says that it does.
This means that if I reveal / control a Dragon, it deals a grand total of 6 damage - correct? 3 damage to any targeted creature, and 3 damage to that creature's controller (Who is not targeted, by the way. Nice way around Hexproof / Protection)?

Well, it's kinda hard to say what to replace without taking into account my own taste. However, if I have to say I would choose to cut Drakuseth, Maw of Flames and one Dragonmaster Outcast with the reasons being:
Drakuseth, Maw of Flames - Too heavy and slow. Does nothing when it enters and is easy to remove.
Dragonmaster Outcast - Not a bad card by any means but since you are playing a monored deck you won't be ramping which means you are gonna have to wait until turn 6 at least to play it.
In both cases, Thunderbreak Regent is way faster and way more punishing to your opponent.
Also, small tip. Scavenger Grounds since red doesn't have that much grave hate and you can put it in the main deck.
