There are some other "targets" for discard, but I don't think all of these are the best for you. I'll list each of them instead of loads of paragraphs.
Punishing Fire - Could be a replacement for Spit Flame but honestly that's up to you. Punishing Fire is technically more versatile since it hits any target and depending on the matchup it can be easier to retrieve. However, Spit Flame has an easier time removing creatures. This one more to just let you know exists.
Flamewake Phoenix - Again, a card that I'm mentioning just to let you know exists. Since most of your dragons have 4 or more power, you could easily get this card back from your graveyard but you would also deviate a bit from the draconic theme.
Ore-Scale Guardian - This one isn't a target himself, but he makes it more profitable for you to discard lands, specially if you end up being mana flooded.
Runehorn Hellkite - Can be used to refill your hand late game(?) and as he's no diffenrent from other dragons, there's no downside letting him rest in your grave until you active it's effect.
Fiery Temper - Basically adds 3 damage for one mana to all of your discard spells.
These are the monored option. I also have options that would actually require you to splash for black. These are, of course, not mandatory for you to run, but it's always good to get to know more cards.
Bladewing the Risen -A giant dragon that reanimates another one when it comes into play and also has the ability to pump all your dragons. Obviously he's not a target for discard himself. However, he can make other dragons more interesting to discard.
Boneyard Scourge - Pretty simple. Dump him into the graveyard and when one of your dragons die, you get him back for a really cheap cost.
Bone Dragon - A recurrable dragon that can be left in the grave until the late game when it can come back multiple times, assuming you have enough cards in the grave.
In case you consider any of these black cards or you just don't feel confortable not bein able to cast the Thralls, there are a few budget lands that can help you with the mana. Also, the Haven of the Spirit Dragon could help you cast the black dragons but not activate their abilities.
About the cuts for the Thralls, you are still above 60 cards. There are some other cuts you can also make.
Dragonspeaker Shaman - They're quite expensive and you already have a pretty decent amount of "ramp" and cost discounts. Even more, they're really easy to kill.
Slumbering Dragon - He seems quite tempting to play as he can grow a lot. However, that's the problem, he CAN grow but nothing guarantees he will. Also, only one in the deck won't help at all.
Sarkhan's Triumph - Since you now have more card draw, you could maybe cut one of these.

None of the cards you mentioned in the second point seem important to this deck's mechanic from my point of view. I would concentrate on your first point and focus the build on your choice of beaters.
Lurking Predators as a fall-back if your cammander is taken out
Hope this inspires you, looking forward to see the decklist you come up with!

Legendary Planeswalker — Sarkhan
If a source would deal damage to a Dragon creature or Sarkhan planeswalker you control, it deals that much damage minus 1 instead.
+1: Put a +1/+1 counter on each dragon you control.
-3: Create three Dragon Egg creature tokens.
-7: You get an emblem with "Dragons you control have indestructible and lifelink." Create a 5/5 red Dragon creature token with flying.
Indestructible is somewhat non-bo on a Dragon Egg , but you can still sac them to devour.

Tribal Enchantment - Dragon
Dragons you control have haste.
Whenever a Dragon enters the battlefield under your control, it deals damage to any target equal to it's power.
Whenever a Legendary Dragon enters the battlefield under your control, create two 0/2 Dragon Egg tokens.
Make another tribal enchantment for your favorite tribe.

Dragonlord's Servant is a neat tool to consider for getting dragons out a bit faster... maybe Mind Stone for a bit more mana acceleration with a draw option.... some earlier plays could also be Slumbering Dragon and Dragon Egg for a bit of defense while waiting to player other dragons...otherwise without earlier plays/barriers then i think you would need Pyroclasm / Anger of the Gods to stave off the opponents incomming assault for their creatures. id also consider Sarkhan, Fireblood as a replacement planswalker.

The early-game is still lacking, even with Slumbering Dragon (especially if your opponents remove him or you don't draw him). Unfortunately, with dragons, there's not much you can do about that. Dragon Egg , maybe? Look into the other Sarkhans too, they're all good for dragons.

Worldspine Wurm is good unrelated but there is a combo with Ashnod's Altar and Runed Stalactite That will let you just go through you your entire deck of creatures till you get the one you want. Then if possible use a card like Faith's Reward or Brought Back to get some creatures you sacrificed that turn while you were cycling through your deck.
