Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury
Legendary Creature — Dragon
Whenever a Dragon you control attacks, creatures you control get +1/+0 until end of turn.
Dash (You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, it gains haste, and it's returned from the battlefield to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.)

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury Discussion
1 day ago
I love this idea! I actually began building a Dragon-based Modern deck when I started getting into the format and this looks a lot like where I started. I was initially on the RB plan since I had played a similar build in standard and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury and her command were both fun cards to play. I personally found the Black to be pretty slow in my local meta. Nowadays I'm on this list using Green for ramp. Having the speedy option and having some relevant turn-one plays seemed like a strong option after some testing. Maybe there's a place for a Jund build?
On your maybeboard, Stormbreath Dragon is surprisingly resilient. I'm running all four in my build - try it out! If you're committed to Black, some number of one-mana hand disruption spells is probably correct. It's worthy finding the right balance between Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek. Fearsome Awakening is way too slow. I found Haven of the Spirit Dragon gives you some of that utility in your mana base.

I would replace Tyrant's Familiar. It's frankly lackluster without your commander out, and you are quite unlikely to have both out. I would also recommend you make space for Dragonlord Kolaghan and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury. One is a aggressively costed haste outlet and the other pumps your dragons up. You can cut both Dragonlord Silumgar and probably Boneyard Scourge.
The bulk of your dragons are 5 drops with the Ur-dragon cost reduction. In that sense I would cut Dreamstone Hedron, Gilded Lotus, Mirrari's Wake. You can replace them with cheaper ramp spells like signets and talismans to get you casting your dragons more quickly.

I like the idea with Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury.
I don't want to do the basic ramp package. There's only a few basics.

I like the deck idea, but i think there are some small changes i'd add. For dragon synergies Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury goes bonkers with little kittie dragons and Dragon Tempest gives haste and pounds a lot of damage. For ramp I would run the basic Kodama's Reach, Cultivate and Explosive Vegetation since we have access to green. For draw Phyrexian Arena is a staple. And some other good inclusions Heroic Intervention can save your board or single important permanent, Kessig Wolf Run for some utility and extra damage and maybe Berserkers' Onslaught. These are just some suggestion that I would consider

Thanks for your comments and enpc. This deck plays quite unusually so both of you probably misunderstood the point of Natural Affinity in the deck. It's not there merely to combo with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, but mainly to provide a large number of creatures for Deceiver of Form to change into other creatures. So it wins the game even on a board with only the Deceiver. Same thinking with Insurrection, which also has the benefit of clearing away blockers, although I could try a lower CMC alternative like Living Plane.
I share your concerns about Mirror Gallery, but I think it does have a role in this deck as a secondary combo piece, in that I don't need to actively look for it, but games where I do have it I can win with fewer creatures on the board due to the powerful effects of Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, and Medomai the Ageless. These can win the game on the spot with just a handful of them, unlike the nonlegendaries such as Utvara Hellkite which makes an incredible amount of dragons, but those dragons are guaranteed to be boardwiped before my next turn.
Omnath, Locus of Rage is actually not meant to be a token generator with Mirror Gallery out, but acts as direct burn to the face with no Mirror Gallery, since the damage is multiplicative for each Omnath.
Mana dorks could be great since they also provide bodies that can be transformed by the Deceiver, but only if they're not tapped out. The risk is that boardwipes would take them out and set me back, but I could swap a few mana rocks for them.
Your suggestions for a few more tutors could also be good. I'm thinking Sylvan Tutor and Eladamri's Call, and Chord of Calling will have to be tested for how reliably I can convoke for cost reduction.

Thanks for the comments cdkime! Mirrorweave doesn't work with legendary creatures unfortunately. Rite of Replication works pretty well most of the time, and it ends the game with Biovisionary on your turn.
I didn't include Cathars' Crusade since the focus is not on the tokens, and its power pales in comparison to the effects of having 4 Pathbreaker Ibex or Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury since those are multiplicative.
