Grixis Panorama Discussion

Alright! Hi! Since this is your first EDH deck I'll start with a lot of basic/staple things to get you up to speed :)
First, welcome to the best magic format! If you haven't already, check out the rules website here.
Back? Alright! We need to get you up to 100 cards my friend! Let's start with your lands.
For any average EDH deck, you need 35-38 lands. This depends on a great many things(like curve, strategy, ramp, card draw, ect) but something in that range is what you should shoot for.
Going all basics is very risky because there's no guarantee you can get all three colors on turn 4. It's also hard to cast stuff with double or triple colors in their mana costs. So here are a bunch of $5 and under suggestions to get you up to ~37 lands. I like to do things in cycles, so I have the same amount of each color available.
Extra mana: Temple of the False God
So those are all a bunch of relatively budget options you can use. I usually keep all of those the same and change the number of each basic land to match the color ratio of the deck.
Next I want to talk about ramp. Any EDH deck should have about 8-10. You don't have green so most of it will be artifact ramp. Your commander has a CMC of 4 so it's important to use 2 cost artifact ramp to get her out on turn 3.
Sol Ring goes in pretty much every EDH deck. If you think you'll be playing EDH for a while I'd buy at least 5 haha
That'll give you a solid playable mana base, whith with you can do anything with the rest of the deck and still play normally. You could even change commanders if you want!
For the rest, I'll turn to the pros: This is the Command Zone Episode 151 where they talk about their template and how much ramp, lands, board wipes, spot removal, card draw, creatures, etc etc etc you should have in your average deck. Definitely watch it all but here's a summery I found in the comments:
Mana Ramp - 10Card Draw - 10Single Target Removal - 5Board Wipes - 5
Standalone - a card that works on it's own or in concert with your commander. (25)Enhancer - a card that either amplifies or is amplified by your commander, standalone cards or other enhancers. (10-12)Enabler - a card that covers a weakness or a fills a gap in your strategy. (7-8)
Then head over to EDHREC and pick out cards that interest you!
One last peice of advice, don't go and buy all this shit yet. Wait a while, craft the deck, continue getting advice on it, then buy the cards you know you want. Don't be like me and but 200 cards for a 100 card deck haha

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!
