If you resolve Lathliss, Dragon Queen's token ability before Scourge of Valkas's damage ability, you get the figures I mentioned above. Since you own both and both go on the stack at the same time, you choose the order they stack up.
Lets take another look at Utvara Hellkite. Looking at the numbers, it is strictly better than Lathliss.
With 5 total Dragonstorms,
- Scourge of Valkas - 1
- Scourge of Valkas - 2+2
- Scourge of Valkas - 3+3+3
- Utvara Hellkite - 4+4+4
- Dragonlord Kolaghan - 5+5+5
- Declare Attackers (Create Tokens) - 30+30+30+30+30

As far as Utvara Hellkite goes, again whether I am using my direct damage or my attacking dragons, the game is going to end really soon and I'm not sure they need help getting the job done.
I think I will add one Lathliss, Dragon Queen in case my my deck goes off late and my opponents get a bunch of extra life quickly.
I will test out the Land Grant to see if it speeds me up.

this is a work of art, sir.
your whole board looks really well made, it doesnt look like you have more than 1 or 2 flex slots.
i like the idea of bloom if youre okay with waiting a little longer.
which could help your turn 2.
this is all probably over speculation as Lotus Petal is always the right choice lol

Hey I saw your question about how to better combat agro decks. I have a few suggestions worth checking out.
First up, I am counting 3 board wipes and currently, (not counting rift) I think you should increase your board wipe count to 5 or 6. But if we are smart about which board wipes we choose, we wont have the clunkiness of playing 6 board wipes. I do like Sweltering Suns as a choice because of the cycling. I would add only 1 small board wipe since elves and vampires tend to grow in size over time. Any of the 4 mana wraths are great Day of Judgment, Damnation, Wrath of God. But you can get better utility out of things like Austere Command, Living Death, and Faultline. Faultline works great in my angel decks, there stuff is dead and yours isn't. Living Death is also great, its either a board wipe or mass reanimation depending on what you need. So pick the board wipes that work best for you.
Finally, since you already have some creatures that are good at board control lets look at some ways to make sure we get them into play more often via tutors Sarkhan's Triumph is very reasonable and assuming its not to slow Dragonstorm with at least 1 additional trigger is very good. Oh also, theres nothing wrong with Diabolic Tutor, if enough creatures on board you tutor and blasphemous act for 5 mana. At that point you can search for balefire, silumgar, steel hellkite, or scourge of kher ridge as needed with either of those. And if you really wanted to you could add Oros, the Avenger but without testing it, my guess is that its underwhelming.
Next looking at what to cut. Since we are adding a lot of board wipes, we can cut from the single target removal spells. I would probably cut Disallow, Path to Exile, possibly Mystic Confluence. Are you able to achieve the triple blue on Cryptic Command regularly? If not, I would cut. For me its not a counterspell style deck so unless there is a meta call where you really need them, I think having 2 good counters should be plenty. I would probably also cut the 2 worst dragons, possibly Numot, the Devastator and Skyline Despot, and cut whatever the worst card draw spell in your deck is.
Anyway if it were my deck, I think I would add something like this: Austere Command, Living Death, Diabolic Tutor, Sarkhan's Triumph, Ghostly Prison, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach. That would give you 5 board wipes, 2 additional tutors, some pillow fort, and a bit more ramp. I feel like that should tighten up your game against agro. Anyway let me know how it goes.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions and the upvotes!
@Atuva and SirSh4ggy: Ramos, Dragon Engine has high upside if its ability gets going, but he will be too slow in the deck without further support, I expect. That's because there are relatively few multicolored spells and the cmc of the deck is rather high (even with the alternative cost from Jodah). And I don't want to put cards like Doubling Season in the deck only for Ramos. It would be great if somebody pointed out a way to include Ramos, Dragon Engine into the Grozoth combo (searching him out with Dragonstorm wouldn't do much yet).
@SirSh4ggy: Maelstrom Wanderer doesn't hit most of the powerhouses in the deck, so I didn't include it, but Unexpected Results seems cool because it either ramps or has a chance on hitting the powerhouses (and I play few counterspells) - cool addition!
Quicksilver Amulet and company won't let me use the cast triggers of my creatures, so they're not optimal. But Defense of the Heart is a tutor at least and can search something like Dragonlord Kolaghan + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre which is nice. And Elvish Piper could maybe replace Myojin of Life's Web.
@Spoosky: Akroma's Memorial is a good idea! A lot of my creatures have no evasion at all and this will give them all kinds of evasion. If testing shows that my threat density is more than enough, then I'll try to find room for the memorial.

Bitterblossom seems like a good way to get all the tokens, and one life is even less relavent in edh
You have a lot of ramp in this deck, Dragonstorm might be possible (if very janky)
P.S. you have this listed in Standard :)

You cannot cast Dragonstorm with mana generated from Geosurge. You can only use that mana to cast creature or artifact spells. With that being said, the Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl package is much more consistent. If they counter your dragon spell after you burn a bunch of rituals, you are left with no more ramp and few cards in hand. If they counter your big dragon spells after you ramp with Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl, you shrug your shoulders because you still have a ton of mana next turn and can just cast another dragon then.
