GeoFromz I like the addition of Dragonlord Dromoka and Dragonlord Atarka I would recommend throwing in the other dragonlords as well, just for pure value. Land base, all of my decks use as few basic lands as possible. Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, with some shock lands and fetch lands will 100% help the color fixing. If you ever want to playtest a deck against one of mine just let me know!

Xenhelga Hi! Thanks for checking in! I've been meaning to talk to you about this but just haven't found the time until now. I've been looking at some cards to put in and have decided on Dragonlord Dromoka, Dragonlord Atarka, and City of Brass. There are other cards that I want to put in but I'm not old enough to get a job yet so I can't get much money to buy other cards. The deck seems to work pretty well and is always fun to play with, although it is my only functional commander deck right now and I only have two other people in my playgroup. I'm only familiar with two other decks and am not sure how my deck would play against different decks. Sometimes my deck blows everyone out of the water but more often than not it is on pretty equal footing with my friends' decks.

With Dubious Challenge you'd be better off avoiding creatures with EtB (or activated) abilities to not give the opponent any value before you get them back.

So I wouldn't recommend cards like:
Dragonlord Atarka, Griselbrand, Grave Titan and possibly Sundering Titan
(unless the deck is built in a way to break the symmetry of its ability).

Isn't Griselbrand relatively cheap now? Also, any of the Legendary Praetors, any of the fat Eldrazi, Dragonlord Atarka maybe?

I agree that I need to have more targeted removal in order to protect my board although I'm not sure if i'm too into adding cards to cheat dragons into play.

I am going to keep all the dragon lords in for flavor although I would argue that Dragonlord Kolaghan is a haste enabler which is very important, Dragonlord Ojutai is card draw and Dragonlord Atarka is sort of targeted removal which isnt bad at all.

However I do need to remove things to add in more protection, what are your opinions on Spellbound Dragon, Painful Truths, Boneyard Scourge, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami and the Teneb, the Harvester, Intet, the Dreamer and Crosis, the Purger trio

Given that the Ur-Dragon is 5 coloured, you get access to greens amazing ramp!

I would include Llanowar Elves for some first turn pumping and a quick Kodama's Reach for more lands!

Personally Id like to have a Dragonlord Atarka and a Glorybringer in the deck as well, though Im not sure how Glorybringer will fare in multiplayer, Ive only seen it in Standard and Modern.

Lol its all good man. But im glad my suggestions helped! And yeah, the only way you can really play around the legendary rule is with death effects (Keiga, the Tide Star and Yosei, the Morning Star) or enter the battlefield effects like with Dragonlord Atarka because a second legendary enters and then one of them is immediately sacrificed. Which is why Rite of Replication is so good for this bc you just get 5 free triggers of a really juicy effect lol
