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!

If your main issue is you're getting beat down before you can get your mid/late game rolling then you might want to consider some mass removal. Something like Anger of the Gods could work.
Think about what each card in your deck does and how it helps your over-all plan. Kargan Dragonrider is kind of a flavour win but as a 2/2 it most likely trades or chumps against other early game creatures. You're not generating any card advantage that way.
You might also look at cards like Dragonlord's Servant to fill that roll. It blocks better than Dragon Rider and it accelerates your dragon plan by 1 turn. Dragonspeaker Shaman is also helpful but being a 3 drop it's competing with Sarkhan and Dragon's horde.

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.

I like the idea but there are some improvements that may help. You have basically no ramp and a rather low land count for a deck that curves out around 5/6. I would bump you lands up to 34 at least, maybe 35/36. I would seriously consider all 10 shock lands, and either the full set of check or filter. I;ve had good luck with just shocks and check with my own 5c EDH deck but with some many dual symbol creatures, the filters may be better for you. You'll need a least a few ramp sources, maybe 5-7. You're playing some very large creatures and you want to go fast. Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant both help drop the cost of dragons. Sol Ring and the signets are all low cost rocks, while some spells like Farseek , Rampant Growth and Cultivate help thin our your deck and the colors you need. You are doing reanimation some maybe some creatures like Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder .
Just some general good support cards, Patriarch's Bidding seems like it was made for your deck, as is Rise of the Dark Realms . Moltensteel Dragon is also a must, as its a one shot kill with your commander and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon .
I'm not sure your budget so I hope something helps

Well, if you're still looking for other low-cost dragon related cards, Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman seem excellent ways to both have creatures early and to ramp (although the latter is sadly not Modern legal). Dragon Whisperer may be Mythic Rare, but is still very cheap. Dragonmaster Outcast would be great for you, but may be out of your budget.

I woud replace Moltensteel Dragon with Verix Bladewing . If you take the 4 damage to cast Moltensteel Dragon it costs the same as casting Verix without the kicker and if you don't take the damage and you pay the full 6 mana, why not pay 1 more to create another 4/4 flying dragon? Plus, all the abilities that cheat the mana cast for Moltensteel ( Dragonlord's Servant , Dragonspeaker Shaman ) apply to Verix. On top of that, you can pay Verix's kicker with colorless mana, which your deck seems to generate a bunch of versus paying a red or taking 2 damage for a +1/+0 end of turn effect.
