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

Check out my Xenagos Dragon deck, Xenagos, God of Revels . It used to be completely dragon tribal but i've shifted a bit away from that and found that it works excellently. I've been playing and tuning it for the better part of 6 years now, and I think it's in an excellent state. It's not the most powerful because i'm trying to keep it fun for everyone else to play against, but I still think you might pull a few good ideas from there.
As for any suggestions off the top of my head, you might want to look into speeding things up a bit. It won't overpower the deck at all, but it'll allow you to play your own game a bit more and have more control. Cards like Dragonspeaker Shaman are nice, but rather than playing that why not instead play a ramp spell that'll accelerate every card you play and can't be removed as easily. Look into Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , and Explosive Vegetation . The first two can grab lands like Stomping Ground and Sheltered Thicket , while the last allows you to grab multiple basics. Another great one is Tempt with Discovery .
Regal Behemoth will give you access to another double mana source
Chromatic Lantern will also give you both mana fixing and further ramp.
There are a ton of other things you might like if you check out my deck list.
Good luck Gaming!

Hello, have you considered adding some low-curve Dragons like Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip, Glorybringer or Thunderbreak Regent ? I just feel that lowering the average CMC would feel amazing to play.

Removing the following, some I may re-add when I get them, others would just be better as legit mana sources
High CMC, non-dragon
Low impact, non-dragon
Signet would almost always do a better job
Signet would almost always do a better job
A little pricey ($), might be more durable as a signet anyway
Need colored mana
Just forgot to order him

Thanks for the suggstions Spairut . Hornet Nest and Frontier Siege are no options for me as they are green and no dragons. The only reason I included some Forest in my Manabase is Cindervines , which is currently my only idea to handle opponents enchantments. Surely not my definite solution.. I don´t need forests for the Dragon Broodmother as there are 6 lands who can produce any kind of mana for dragon spells and 4x Dragon's Hoard .
I know there are a few nice green dragon related cards, but there are more downsides than upsides in switching from a basically red manabase to R/G, when focusing on the ETB effects. In contrast, I thought about switching a bit more to B/R and replace Draconic Roar with Thoughtseize ... For ramp I tried Dragonspeaker Shaman , Dragonlord's Servant or the universal Urza's Incubator . But in the end I replaced them one after another with Dragon's Hoard , as it is a manaramp for all kinds of spells, and an additional card draw for every dragon entering the battlefield. Dragon Egg is just much more effective in this deck then Hornet Nest , as it allows to trigger etb effects two times.
My current Idea is to replace one Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip main and one Chandra, Torch of Defiance main with Metallic Mimic each. This is because I often find myself in situations were I would rather draw a dragon than a Planeswalker, and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip was often underwhelming. Metallic Mimic would be a great 2 drop dragon with benefits for all other creatures in the deck, as there are no non-dragons.

Rise of the Dark Realms . Nuff said.
It also seems like you could maybe use some fodder engines with unusual token types. Things like Faerie Artisans , Ulvenwald Mysteries note that it will trigger even if you sack the clue to an atog, Tireless Tracker same, Smothering Tithe , Dragon Broodmother , Whisperwood Elemental .
Sweet deck. Would love to try it someday.

Heavy blue invites playing Carpet of Flowers but that sorta depends on how many colors in addition to the blue. Skullclamp only kills your elves really, might be worth putting in a Craterhoof Behemoth package in case the one hit wonder doesnt work out. Dragon Broodmother and Dragonlair Spider are my favorite gruul cards for that

This looks far better; we have a defined theme now and I see some more staples in (dorks). However I'd like to address few likely weak spots.
First thing that got my attention was the relatively high average cmc. This is a casual deck and higher-than-usual avg cmc is to be expected of course. But in my suggestions I'll keep in mind fostering a healthy curve and prioritize low-cmc cards.
Dragon Broodmother- this is a neat, but a very slow engine. If the deck works perfectly as intended, there are still cooler options. Plus 6cmc for such slow effect is a lot.
Ghoulcaller Gisa - again, neat but slow. At 5cmc there might be better options available to you. First similar thing that comes to mind is Open the Graves which would give you tokens more reliably (being a triggered rather than an activated ability stapled to an enchantment rather than a creature) and that doesn't have summoning sickness.
Sheoldred, Whispering One - probably the best expensive creature you have. My concern is that in order to get to 7 mana and stay alive long enough for Sheoldred to matter, you must have game in a state where, frankly, SHeoldred isn't much of a factor.
Stalking Vengeance seems awfully expensive TBH. That ceiling is something, but IMO it's too greedy.
Vicious Shadows - 7 mana to do something in case you have a removal and an opponent has significant number of cards in hand? You can comfortably throw in a blue moon somewhere in that chain of events...
Essence Harvest - goes well with the theme, but ultimately doesn't do much
Fungal Sprouting - cute, but the fact that it's useless when you're down makes it a no no in my eyes.
Now some suggestions;
Fecundity - seems like a cool way to draw extra cards
Skullclamp - in here it says ": draw 2 cards". Yes please.
Fling/Thud - these effects seem like they could/should be your bread and butter. Worst case scenario they're pw/creature removal with sac outlet. Best case scenario they are capable of taking down players.
Sidisi, Undead Vizier- tutor on a stick is usually good if you have creatures to sac. In a vacuum it's a Demonic Tutor that gives counters to Kresh. Best case scenario you have a sac outlet and get a complimentary 4/6 deathtouch to fool around with.
Smothering Abomination - draw engine on a stick. Seems good.
Birthing Pod - it kills stuff plus it tutors. And it's repeatable. What's not to like?
Evolutionary Leap - sac outlet that gets you more creatures.
