Thanks for the comment REDWHITEandBLUE; I had them both in the deck before I put in Savage Ventmaw and Hellkite Charger but you've made me rethink adding them back in :)

Love the Dragons, I always loved having Thunderbreak Regent & Dragonmaster Outcast I find they are less on the priority side but strong when they work.

Chandra's Ignition is also a looker because more times then not you will be running beefy Monsters, and if you are focusing on the attack side of things I find personal success with Aggravated Assault over Hellkite Charger.. Urza's Incubator has also been a baby of mine that really helps the big drops lol.

love the deck

Hoard-Smelter Dragon is just one of the better Commander dragons in general, and it looks like you are a hair light on artifact removal anyway. Hellkite Charger is a reasonable dragon, and though you can't use him the turn you drop him in off of a Kaalia, he'd replace Relentless Assault fairly well. Oros, the Avenger is a poor man's Balefire Dragon, but having access to a second sweep for decks going wide may help- I'd likely opt for Scourge of Kher Ridges though. Knollspine Dragon is still a good card, especially as you're running Wheel of Fortune anyhow. Like the previous posters stated, Angel of Finality is a beating against the right decks. You could also look to upgrade Grand Abolisher with Conqueror's Flail.

You might want to up your land count. Most EDH decks run between 35 and 40. 32 means you're probably going to struggle with your land drops.

Anyway it looks like you're trying for an aggro punisher type deck. If that's the case then something like Savage Beating and Hellkite Charger would be good for being aggressive. Furnace of Rath is good for more damage doubling. Also Zo-Zu the Punisher; Ankh of Mishra; and Manabarbs are all really good. Price of Glory is good at stopping people from countering your spells and removing your creatures at instant speed. Lastly I'd recommend Chromatic Lantern for color fixing.

Thanks for the comments!

I'll definitely add in Hellkite Charger and the lands; however I don't think I'm in much need for the evasion spells.

Kaalia of the Vast already has flying, I don't really want to put too much 'unblockable' redundancy in the deck considering she comes with evasion.

Run Hellkite Charger. You can cheat it out, pay , then cheat something else out. Also, Goblin Tunneler, Break Through the Line, Fear, Rogue's Passage, and Shizo, Death's Storehouse would break the game, allowing you to swing in every turn unblocked without having to worry about Kaalia dying.

I saw you have Sword of Feast and Famine and Savage Ventmaw. When I see these it makes me want to have Aggravated Assault and Hellkite Charger could add Bear Umbra for the cherry on top. combine the mana or land untap with the extra combat phases and bash down an opponent or two from 40 to 0 in one turn. Not the most efficient combo as you must win at combat multiple times but it is fun and really throws people off. Works well with the little bit of voltron you have going too. Laboratory Maniac for when you draw your deck.

Haste and mowing?

The problem of these decks is that it's hard to keep drawing those dragons as they cost you a card. Re-use helps:

What cards to cut? Some cards seem a bit lost in this deck. Try and focus and cut the rest.

  • Chameleon Colossus
  • Disciple of Bolas - rather sac those biggies at instant speed: Greater Good
  • All the manadorks. They are fragile, cost a card and take a turn to get working. Better play some ramp or lands.
  • Too many tutors can make for boring games where players find the same cards every game. Do you really need them?
