Hey, for your first Commander deck well done and nice deck description. You picked an interesting General as your first one to make a deck because not being able to cast noncreature spells can be a real burden in multiplayer Commander. In a Commander deck ideally you want to have a nice mix of noncreature spells and you can't really do that with Nikya.
I see Temur Sabertooth and it's bounce activated ability is great with Nikya's ramp. Sabertooth lets you play some noncreature spells because you can use the mana generated by Nikya to bounce Nikya with Sabertooth and then use the rest of the mana to cast a noncreature spell. This trick is very good with Primal Surge since there's all permanents here, creatures, meaning you dump all the creatures and lands from your library onto the battlefield on your turn. Genesis Wave is another powerful spell with the Sabertooth Nikya trick and it too depending on how much mana you have can dump all your permanents onto the battlefield.
Enchantments, artifacts and Planeswalkers are also permanent cards which have interaction with Surge and Wave. Fires of Yavimaya , Hammer of Purphoros gives all your creatures haste which can be a win condition when you dump it and all your creatures onto the battlefield.
With big creatures and ramp Fierce Empath is a good creature tutor especially with Sabertooth since it can bounce Empath for you to cast again. Genesis Hydra is another creature to take advantage of ramp as well as Sabertooth and it can put a nonland noncreature permanent you reveal onto the battlefield which is a way to get around Nikya's restriction since you're not casting that permanent.
As you play more Commander and make more decks you will find that good lands and manabases are consistently the most expensive cards of a deck. There are however some good budget lands in Commander. Command Tower is the staple land for multicolored decks in Commander. Cinder Glade , Rootbound Crag , Game Trail , Sheltered Thicket and Temple of Abandon are all good Gruul lands.
I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey multimedia, For a budget deck, your deck is great. The Ur-Dragon is my first and most favorite deck have, I played it since I bought the prebuild deck and now up to this day. I put a lot of money, time and care in this deck The dragUr and this what I can suggest you (ill keep it budget) :
Add more haste card. since dragon are big scary creature, they get targeted more often, so I think they must be use as soon they hit the table.
The mana base it's biggest issue for a budget deck 5 color and fixing it cost thousands. So ramp and cheating dragon is essential.
for ramp :
for cheating dragon :
Hope it help you.

I love this deck concept. Ferocity of the Wilds and Rhythm of the Wild are good additions for this deck. Fires of Yavimaya and Gruul War Chant may also be good for your deck. Beast Whisperer is a fun addition. Iroas, God of Victory and Nylea, God of the Hunt may also come in useful.
I hope this has been of some use to you

Oh wow. I just realized the potential of Vitalize in combo with Immaculate Magistrate (which already combos with Joraga Warcaller ). With the small splash of red I'm considering, Fires of Yavimaya becomes a speed-up possibility too. And Apollo_Paladin, your deck Tae'rin Terror (Elf Zerg) is awesome, by the way. I'm going to have so much fun looking there for ideas, and not just for this deck.

Hey there. I had a look at the decklist and while I like a lot of what you're doing here, I think there are a lot of cards worth considering for this list. I'll list the ones I think are best here, and give my reasons why below.
First off is Fires of Yavimaya and it's best friends Anger / Hammer of Purphoros . Three cards that are fantastic for this deck, as giving Korvold (and all his other friends) can be really important to get your engine rolling!
Second, I've got Goblin Bombardment , and Yawgmoth, Thran Physician . These two are pretty self-explanatory, they're by far the best sacrifice outlets you'll find, and go great in any deck that's looking to sac creatures for value.
Third are Blood for Bones , Meren of Clan Nel Toth , and Phyrexian Reclamation three recursion engines that in this deck, will ensure you can keep re-using important creatures, or so that you don't gas out before you hit your win conditions. Speaking of...
The last 2 cards I have written down are Garruk, Cursed Huntsman , and Tendershoot Dryad . While the least neccessary of the bunch, I would highly recommend adding these two, as they serve the dual purpose of being both win condition and creature generators.
So to round out our suggestions (desite my claims that Garruk and the dryad were our last), I would advise adding more basic Mountain s, especially if you intend to run Anger . The deck would likely run better, as the amount of tap lands youre running is just too high, and is likely clunkier than just throwing more Mountain s into the deck.
Well if you made it this far, then thanks for that and best of luck with your deck!
