Okay I'm here! Sorry it took so long; my comment deleted somehow!
Here's a good list of resources I use if you're new to the format:
EDHREC.com look up your commander and get hundreds of the most popular cards for him!
MTG ASSIST.com look up cards and find similar ones!
The Command Zone #151 Deck template maybe watch this first; very helpful!
So You need a bunch of cuts, I'd start with looking at:
- Allosaurus Rider
- Caller of the Pack
- Garruk's Horde
- Hornet Queen
- Inkwell Leviathan
- Nezahal, Primal Tide
- Pelakka Wurm
- Ranging Raptors
- Ripjaw Raptor
- Scavenging Ooze
- Scute Mob
- Simic Sky Swallower
- Stormtide Leviathan
- Ulvenwald Hydra
- Hunt the Weak
- Primal Surge
- Hadana's Climb
- Sandwurm Convergence
- Venser's Journal
- Kiora, Master of the Depths
- Early Harvest
- Swell of Growth
Not saying throw them all at, but consider cutting and replacing :)
Now, I think Kruphix boils down to two things: Making mana, and using mana. With that in mind, here are some suggestions. Consider what your budget allows.
Making Mana: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Doubling Cube, Plasm Capture, Seedborn Muse, Kiora's Follower, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Deadeye Navigator(some infinite combos with this guy, ask if interested), Weaver of Currents, Everflowing Chalice, Frontier Siege etc.
Using mana: Stroke of Genius, Pull from Tomorrow, Curse of the Swine, Altered Ego, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Thrasios, Triton Hero, some Eldrazi beasties if you have the money, Genesis Wave, Braingeyser, Enter the Infinite, Gelatinous Genesis, Expropriate, Planar Bridge, Nissa, Steward of Elements, and finally, Helix Pinnacle as a fun win-condition.
That's my $0.02! Hope some if this helps!

Thank you all so much for the feedback!! I'm definitely going to put some of the cards you suggested into the deck. I'm thinking of including Selvala's Stampede as well.
Updates to the deck 2/11/18:
Keep in mind that this deck is purely for fun, casual play and I'm not really looking to buy cards within the $20+ range.

no Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots to protect your commander? Frontier Siege would be good since you would not lose your mana pool Patron of the Orochi, Carpet of Flowers, Loam Dryad, Citanul Hierophants, Cryptolith Rite, Deconstruct, Elemental Resonance. just some thoughts that could help. also as brutal as omnath is i feel elf tribal or elves and druids would make him even more brutal there are so many ways with them to put mana into your mana pull and fast because they are so cheap.

Hey its PJ from Commander Replay. With the goal of keeping the core of your deck intact, here are some changes that I would make to streamline things a bit more. So my general philosophy with the Ur Dragon is, to get all of our non dragon effects lower than 5cc, so that the upper part of the curve is free to slam your dragons. Whether this is the correct philosophy who knows, but it seems to make sense to me, so here we go...
Urabrask the Hidden - it competes with your 6cmc dragons.
Snapcaster Mage great card, but there aren't a ton of spells in this deck, so its not the right home
Dualcaster Mage this thing always gets stuck in my hand. and ramp decks generally try to tap out each turn instead of leaving mana open.
Commander's Sphere theres is better ramp
Traverse the Ulvenwald for the reasons you mentioned. If this was a graveyard focused deck, I would include.
Elemental Bond I think there is better ways to draw cards. Under normal circumstances I wouldn't expect to cast more than 3 or 4 dragons in a game.
Desertion competes with 6 cmc dragons.
Maybe Cards to Cut- I haven't played with these so I am not as sure about them. Pay attention to how they perform, then decide if they should stay in or get cut.
Sarkhan Unbroken solid, but not sure if its the right home.
Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoah powerful but not sure if its the right home.
Soul Manipulationthe raise dead effect is cool, but not sure if we just want counterspell instead.
Dragonlord's Servant I like Herald's horn since it doesn't get lost in a board wipe, plus the card advantage part.
I prefer to run about 39-40 lands in a deck like this. Want to make sure you hit all of your land drops.
Fervor replaces Urabrask at lower CC, and doesn't die to board wipe.
Ramp: Choose 3-4 of the options below
Oracle of Mul Daya its expensive, but such a good card.
Ranger's Path finds your forest dual lands
Frontier Siege i like the utility this provides. sometimes ramp, sometimes removal
Blasphemous Act cheap board wipe.
Phyrexian Arena i like this better than elemental bond
Herald's Horn cost reduction and advantage
Counterspell replaces soul manipulation. allows you to protect your creatures

Bane of Progress is a creature you should consider. Avenger of Zendikar seems to suit your theme, too. Wipes out artifacts and enchantments, and gets you counters, is what you are wanting to get. Phantom Nishoba might be nice, too. Mirari's Wake and Aura Shards would be good cards to add. Parallel Lives might help out, too.
Cards I'd consider dropping are Wake the Reflections, Common Bond, Verdant Rebirth, and Smite for now. Smite is just a bad Swords to Plowshares. Those other spells aren't going to give you as much value as you might initially think.
Other cards I'd consider looking for replacements for would be Always Watching and Intangible Virtue. They are ok on a budget, but I'd rather use some buffs that affect all my creatures, as opposed to just some of them. Mirari's Wake, for instance, and Tolsimir Wolfblood does this well. Another option could be Wilt-Leaf Liege (although her 2nd ability is kind of lacking for this deck). Cards like Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes could be finishers.
You look like you've got a lot of land ramp going on, which is good. Sol Ring is pretty much standard for Commander, and Selesnya Signet fits the bill here, too. Cards like Burgeoning and Exploration are pretty potent first turn plays if you think you'd like something like that. Frontier Siege gives another option for ramp. Sword of the Animist might be a way to go, too.
Card draw. More is always better (almost). Harmonize is not bad. Soul's Majesty can be good, but costs more mana-wise than I'd want to pay. Zendikar Resurgent is a two-for-one deal; ramp and card draw. Skullclamp can do some work, and Mask of Memory is decent, too. I always liked Collective Unconscious, and there are some others like it out there, too.
That's a lot, but I hope it helps a little and gives you some ideas to consider. Can't wait to play!

Perhaps a little Frontier Siege could be good ; it's a cheap card money wise, and can be helpfull for mana, or super awesome when you just fight puny with monstrous abominations!
It's a sideboard option for more creatures oriented match-ups
Have a great day sir!
