Creature — Dragon
At the beginning of each upkeep, put a 1/1 red and green Dragon creature token with flying and devour 2 onto the battlefield. (As the token enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. It enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)

Dragon Broodmother Discussion

Ur Dragon over Scion as commander. Look for Cryptic Gateway, Defense of the Heart, Dragon Broodmother, Descendants' Path and maybe Path of Ancestry, Shared Animosity and Heirloom Blade. Anything that adds draw or ramp is also good.

Hey! Thanks for the upvote and comment.
I'd like to address each card personally.
Dragonmaster Outcast - I absolutely love this card. Seriously underrated. Yes, of course you must be weary of things like Lightning Bolt, Shock, Fatal Push, Path to Exile... Hell even Golgari Charm. But I find if you try to build a deck worrying about all of the IF's, you won't have any fun. Having said that, while I love this card, I don't feel he has a place in the deck. This deck aims to cheat out Dragons first and foremost. If I can cheat out lands, awesome; The majority of my mana, however, is produced by non-land sources: Birds of Paradise, Generator Servant, Savage Ventmaw, & Xenagos, the Reveler. I have a Mono-Red Token / Burn deck that uses a playset of Dragonmaster Outcast, so I do fully know of his potential. In this deck however, I feel he's not a very good pick. The reason is, I need my 1-CMC slot open for Birds of Paradise. Dragon Broodmother already produces TONS of Tokens (On EACH Upkeep, not just mine), as does Utvara Hellkite and Sarkhan Vol's -6. So I've got Tokens plenty covered :)
Dragonlord's Servant! Ahh, a staple of any and all Dragon Decks! Sooo... why isn't he in here? I opted in place of him Generator Servant. Why? Because not only does it get me rather than a reduced cost of , I can use the on any spell I'd like. IF it is cast on a Creature, that Creature gains Haste. But I can do it on, say, Genesis Wave if I'd like. And something I've noticed people don't normally think about is that you can divide the into + . Each of these can be imparted onto separate Creatures, giving BOTH of them Haste. That's why I did it this way, instead.
Utvara Hellkite. Oh. My. God. This guy is a beast of a beast. I'm running 2x of him already. I put him in nearly every Dragon Deck I make. So... funny thing. I can get a T3 Savage Ventmaw. 3x Lands + Birds of Paradise + Generator Servant. Ventmaw now has Haste, and I can swing and get . I bring that up, because on T4, even if I don't play a 4th Land, I'd have access to 10 mana in total (3x Lands, 1x Birds of Paradise, +6 mana from Savage Ventmaw). With 10 / at my disposal, I can get a T4 Utvara Hellkite, easily. Even if he's within the top 8 cards of my Library, I can cheat him out for with See the Unwritten. So, a T4 Utvara Hellkite kind of trumps a T6 :)
I had not considered Door of Destinies. Since that's based on whenever I CAST the spell, I'm not certain my guys would get bigger via Tokens. HOWEVER! For more mana, Coat of Arms will make things VERY interesting... Likewise, there's always Crucible of Fire for a bit cheaper. I use those in that Mono-Red Token / Burn that I mentioned earlier.
I had no considered Atarka's Command. To address each point, however:
A.) Lifegain isn't an issue with this deck. Between Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest, you're looking at some SERIOUS Non-Combat Damage. Especially when Utvara Hellkite, Dragon Broodmother, and Sarkhan Vol kick in. I've once dealt over 70 damage on Turn 6. Not BY Turn 6. ON Turn 6.
B.) 3 points of damage is fun and all, but I'd rather spend that on other spells, like a Genesis Wave :)
C.) Extra Lands are always useful, but as I said the vast majority of this deck seeks to use Non-Land sources to produce it's Mana.
D.) +1/+1 and Reach would be a solid benefit, if 85% of my deck didn't already have Flying :p
I'm not trying to crap on your suggestions. I really appreciate them all :D
There's just a particular method to my madness, is all :3

HydraOoze I want to say I have a Stormbreath Dragon and a Thundermaw Hellkite somewhere. And if I don't, I know a local store where I can get them. Dragon Broodmother as well for the locating. I am sure I have Thunderbreak Regent somewhere.
Thank you for your advice!
