Grixis Panorama Discussion

I'm currently doing something similar with my copy of the pre-con and though I bounce back and forth between Scion and The Ur-Dragon himself, I inevitably lean towards the battle-cruiser style in both builds.
Regarding the mana-base, I've found that focusing primarily on all the "Red" lands works pretty well for me.
This provides numerous opportunities to grab the colors needed to cast all dragons while keeping all the great Fire Breathing dragons relevant.
I also add in all the budget 5 color lands that I can manage - Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade are great. A lot of people look down on them and refuse to use them but like you, I also don't want to spend a mortgage payment on the land base.
Forbidden Orchard is relevant since your flyers don't particularly care about 1/1 grounded tokens, but still is not as budget friendly as the others I've listed so far. Still, better than a lot of the options out there.
Aside from the mana-base. Haste + Big dragons is great. I skipped Dragonlord Kolaghan for a long time but having finally slotted him into the deck for a test run, he promptly won me a game and I can confirm he's pretty much worth the slot - Being much more budget friendly than Karthas.
Temur Ascendancy is another multi-function haste enabler that's very budget friendly.
Keiga, the Tide Star and the other Kamigawa dragons all just got a reprint and are way better in Ur-Dragon than in Scion.
It's expensive but I'm personally running a Cyclonic Rift. That's an easy one, but there are lots of other great options that synergize with your dragons in the same way Earthquake does. Magmaquake and Molten Disaster are great includes here.
I've won games with Rite of Replication - which is great even in a vacuum since you can target your opponent's creatures. The more Legendary Dragons you run though, the worse it becomes and it's not exactly dirt cheap so your mileage may vary.

Thanks raffess, I will definitely keep those in mind, however few of those lands are quite pricey and it will take time until I get those.

I would highly suggest:
My first cuts would be:
Talrand, Sky Summoner You already have far better win-cons.Liliana of the Veil Great card, but unnecessary for combo.Phyrexian Arena Too slow. This deck isn't in it for the long haul.Lotus Bloom I love this in Yidris, but not where there's no way to cheat it.Rakdos Charm Would only play this in a control version of the commander/deck.Dreadbore Same as above.Nightscape Familiar Never have been too impressed by these effects in storm.Serum Visions One of my least favorite draw spells in the format.Grixis Panorama I would cut 6 lands down to 30. You'll find yourself flooded with this many.
Beyond this, you have to play test the deck a ton to get a feel for it. I hope you enjoy!

Brainstorm is a common in it's orginal printing
Grixis Panorama is another common terramorphic expanse
what decks are you playing against that you need so many Blazing Volley type cards?
Treasure Cruise is a common and great
Arcane Denial might be better than cancel
Looks really fun! Clever idea and well put together deck, I have a Jori En, Diving on a Budget deck that's running on a budget and could use another izzet mage's eyes on it if you have the time. Thanks!

@lloydss: Cards like Flooded Strand or Grixis Panorama are a weird loophole. You can't use cards with the direct symbols, but if it's just the words you can. So s/he can use them legally, it's just in bad flavor to some people.
Overall a good start. Always love a Kaalia deck, so auto plus one from me.
Your CMC seems a bit high though. While using Kaalia is awesome, she attracts a pretty big target and you'll want to be able to play your deck without her. Potentially lowering your creature count for more ramp, protection, or removal?
Some alternate considerations I've always found to be decent is using Maze of Ith over Reconnaissance as it can save Kaalia and prevent attacks as necessary. Also Wear / Tear is a very strong spot removal in my opinion. A fun addition is Amulet of Vigor as it puts your creatures in UNtapped and attacking leaving you with blockers and helps with tapped lands later in game. Since you're running Master of Cruelties, another demon for a "one shot" ability is the original Rakdos the Defiler as you can skip his attack trigger, but still benefit off his damage trigger.
If you'd like more ideas, feel free to check out my list Kaalia's Revenge. I have descriptions behind most, if not all, the cards in the deck to help people out. Either way, hope some of that was helpful and that you enjoy playing her. Again, +1 for Kaalia! lol

So, to start:
While your manabase is decently developed, 35 lands is an extremely low number for 3-color if you want to hit your fixing consistently, especially with your overwhelming inclination towards black (it's a lot harder to splash in Commander, so you may want to lighten that up after more deck testing, moreso since most of your black inclination comes from multicolored spells). To this end, I'd recommend adding Grixis Panorama and Crumbling Necropolis for a nice, handy 37 (an important threshold for consistently getting 3-land hands) that has a good bit of early fixing.
Furthermore, if you're shakily building a deck, remember the building blocks:
-10 ramp sources-10 draw sources-5 single-target removal sources-5 mass removal sources
You're halfway solid here, but your overwhelming reliance on artifact ramp might be a problem in your meta. I'd try Nightscape Familiar and Expedition Map to better support the wide amount of multicolored spells you have and fetch Urborg, because it's bloody Urborg. It's never a bad idea to diversify your ramp sources, lest Armageddon or Vandalblast set you back 5 turns.
