Literally anything would be better than Fire Dragon . Try Imperial Hellkite instead.

The cards I recommended over messenger were:

Awakening, Charnelhoard Wurm (which loses to Imperial Hellkite now that I know it exists), Moonveil Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, and lastly Thundermaw Hellkite.

Qolorful I tried Imperial Hellkite, but a 11 drop tutor on a stick isn't that efficient, and i can't reduce its cost because its morphing not casting, also i do not use instants if you've noticedbut thanks for the advice

Sarkhan's Triumph and Imperial Hellkite would be very helpful

So all suggestions are kinda budget and focused on a more casual chilled meta. I can show you how I would build RB dragons personally if you want, but my budget might be higher and I can be more cut throat, with certain political angles that might not fit your deck.

You can cut down on lands. You only need about 36, because you have 8 other pieces of ramp. However, Sol Ring seems to be missing. And you do seem to want to jump mana quickly.

Dragon Hatchling is a poor card in this deck, and I would argue Dragon Hatchling is too. Scourge of Valkas seems an auto include really for a dragons deck, and Imperial Hellkite gives you a big body and tutor effect.

I don't like Death Wind, Draconic Roar, Fall of the Hammer or Flesh to Dust. Unholy Hunger just makes the cut in my eyes. You want access to more flexible, more powerful removal ideally. Wrecking Ball for example, costs 1 less, and has an upside in you can also kill lands. Chaos Warp is very flexible, and ideally I would want something like Rakdos Charm and some more artifact removal.

You are very very draw light. The basics I would always consider are Read the Bones, Greed, etc. Phyrexian Arena and similar are also good consistent draw. Palace Siege is a recursion engine too which is nice.

I would also look for more mana sinks like Dragon Roost, or something so you can always be spending spare mana for an effect. Vampiric Dragon is another option for just pinging.

Cards I think should be cut (mostly because they are weak or overcosted or irrelevant to your game plan): Akoum Hellkite, Desecration Demon, Imperial Hellkite (morph is not reduced by Rakdos' ability), Sire Of Insanity, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Conqueror's Flail, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Piranha Marsh, Zoetic Cavern, Palace Siege, Quest for Pure Flame, Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath, Tainted Strike, Lightning Bolt

Things you should add: Bloodgift Demon, Tyrant's Familiar, Toxic Deluge, Pandemonium, Heartless Summoning, Chaos Warp, MANY more draw and ramp effects.
