Interesting, as I hadn't thought of the interaction of Blood Sun and the bouncelands essentially removing their 'downside'. But I don't really think this iteration works, Blood Sun removes our ability to activate Slayers' Stronghold and Sunhome, as well as almost blanking Amulet due to the lands not coming into play tapped, this effect is most noticeable when you have multiple Amulets, which is the decks strongest interaction and allows incredibly broken things. I think there might be an actual spot for Lotus Fields somewhere in the deck, at least in theory, but definitely not as a 4-of. There will be many times where your entire hand will be bouncelands and Lotus Fields, essentially forcing mulligans. If you don't draw enough lands to even cast a Blood Sun the drawback is huge since just playing it out you will often have bouncelands as targets, which is losing you mana. Sure you could maybe generate some large amounts of mana with amulets and the Lotus Fields but you're still blowing up all your lands unless you have Blood Sun in play, which makes the deck way more all-in on that interaction since if they have an answer for your titan you've now put yourself incredibly behind instead of still leveraging your lands in play to cast more things. Just my two cents!
Also, Gemstone Mine is often better than Mana Confluence/City of Brass in this deck, as bouncing it restores counters and it's painless. Crumbling Vestige , Tendo Ice Bridge , Aether Hub are also good. Vesuva as a one-of is pretty standard for Amulet Titan decks, as it removes the necessity to run two Boros Garrisons for the Sunhome activation and is much more flexible, I have even won a game using Vesuva to copy an opponent's Celestial Colonnade for lethal.
Also good cards for this kind of deck:
Trinket Mage , utility for sideboard cards + extra Amulets
Walking Ballista , wincon/aggro deterrent
Hornet Queen , almost an auto-win vs. Midrange/Control
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , against storm/spellslinger decks
Dragonlord Dromoka , anti-control/protects titan combo
Sigarda, Host of Herons , anti-control/midrange, impossible to remove
Chameleon Colossus , extremely strong vs. Death's Shadow and black decks in general
Courser of Kruphix , anti-aggro wall that generates life and value, easy to cast
Explore , safer but less explosive than the tribe scouts, also cycles
Khalni Garden , stalls against aggro and can be insurance as a sacrifice target against cards like Liliana of the Veil to protect Titan
Radiant Fountain , good against burn, bounce multiple times
Temple of Mystery , extra card filtering, better if you also run the Serum Visions versions
Abrade , versatile answer

Wild Pair is a must for this deck. Living Death and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth are good recurrsion cards. Seek the Horizon is also good ramp. Dromoka, the Eternal and Dragonlord Dromoka are some important dragons. Silumgar, the Drifting Death and Dragonlord Silumgar are also considerations. Verix Bladewing should also be considered. Where Ancients Tread is better than some of the curses. Diabolic Tutor can search up anything you need.
I hope this helps!

Basically, that it doesn't win more than 95% of the time yet. It functions pretty well but it still sometimes loses to decks with lots of counterspells if it can't get Dragonlord Dromoka out, as well as some aggro decks. It can also lose because of a combo or something like Ruination . It's also not perfectly consistent (Yes, I know that's impossible).

Wild Pair is perfect for dragon tribal. Crucible of Fire boosts the dragons; it is a staple in this kind of deck. Living Death is needed in the deck; two reanimation spells are the ideal. Dragonlord Dromoka is not a must but is still fun. Any Sarkhan planeswalker card to be perfectly honest can be put into a deck like this. Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread creates a lot of pain for your opponents. If you want to be a grade A d-bag, then add in Coat of Arms .

Dragonlord Dromoka could be fun. I would swap him in and take out Dragonlord Kolaghan as his last ability, while very strong, is almost useless in most EDH games. Dromoka, however, essentially makes all your spells uncounterable and shuts down a lot of other nonsense that you won't want to happen on your turn. No Cyclonic Rift on your endstep, forcing you do discard half your permanents lol.

Yes Keranos, God of Storms comes in against control matchups as well as most midrange type decks. The reason for this is that so-many decks are running Surgical Extraction (though the meta is shifting a little bit) so a plan B option in the sideboard felt like a necessary development (not being prepared for the multitude of Thoughtseize decks can be bad especially if you expect them to be out in force). Of the possible plan B's (most of which are listed in the primer above) Keranos, God of Storms is my personal favorite hence why he is included; this does not mean that he is the best option, that would probably be either Godhead of Awe or Dragonlord Dromoka right now looking at recent meta data, Crovax, Ascendant Hero may also have an outside chance if you are looking to play a plan B in the side. Honestly I'm thinking of making that slot a Boseiju, Who Shelters All as Dovin's Veto is a bit scary but I don't have enough data to gage how often I need to worry about that card. Otherwise the slot can be used for an extra Fatal Push / Path to Exile or as a flex spot.
As for Slaughter Pact I have always been a fan of it simply for its flexibility, it more reliably can answer certain problem cards such as Eidolon of Rhetoric than Fatal Push or it can buy a turn against decks like Amulet if things aren't going well. It also provides for some interesting scenarios with the math to win being free, most notably in the Humans matchup allowing us to beat a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben with 7 available mana, or remove something like Meddling Mage naming a combo piece for free and win at instant speed on time. Before putting in the plan B with Keranos, God of Storms I was actually on 2 Fatal Push and 1 Slaughter Pact and was happy with the results for a long time, when it came down to cutting one of those, I prioritized the Humans matchup where Slaughter Pact can be the difference, and at the same time allowing myself to have a removal spell for a quick Gurmag Angler or larger threat that push can't deal with as efficiently.
