Lathliss, Dragon Queen Discussion

ThePerilousRealm, it looks tempting, however in this deck I need at minimum 20 Dragons so cutting one for similar effect is a little of a nonbo. Maybe in future WotC will create some kind of enchantment with Haste or protection and Double Strike effect like upgraded Duelist's Heritage but for now I'll stick to my winged friend.
NeonEndymion Hey man! Haven't seen you in a while. Recently I didn't change anything here since I'm unimpressed with new sets regarding this particual deck. And speaking of unimpressed here comes the newest Dragon legend... Drakuseth, Drakuseth, why can't you have Haste on your own?
I just think that 6 mana for 7/7 Flying with effect that may or may not work is on similar page with Chromium, the Mutable and as you can see neither of us uses this Dragon. Yes, it might shoot down something (or burn players since it has "any target" clause) but it requires too specific board state and I'd playtest him first to change my mind. As it is I don't know what to cut to make room and for sure it won't be Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire since he has high risk/high reward that we can later turn into low risk/high reward, which translates to constantly upgrading our boardstate while shrinking our opponents'. Removal is removal, I agree, but more often than not we want to shoot down something like Ghostly Prison or Mana Vault and creatures are of lower priority. Besides that to put it simple - potential of cheating into play another Dragon or powerful enchantment vs. burning someone for 4 and shooting down 1-2 or burning other players for 3... I think that answer here is clear.
One more thing - it might be perfect for Atarka, World Render or Lathliss, Dragon Queen , maybe even Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund decks but not for 5-color, where we already have "the best of the best" and where finding place for a new card is harder than finding a safe place in Jund.

Have you heard the word of our lord and savior Morophon, the Boundless ? Helps with ramp a lot, how'd you like to cast your commander for 4 mana? You also might want Utvara Hellkite , Lathliss, Dragon Queen , and Skyline Despot

I feel like Ilharg's ability was created for creatures like Etali, Primal Storm , Bedlam Reveler , Lathliss, Dragon Queen where the creature might be temporary, but they have permanent effects. I love the inclusion of Thundermare and Breaker of Armies for the free swings though.

Darksteel Myr , Guardians of Meletis , and Workshop Assistant Are all cards that seem like they don’t really do good things for your dragons, they are good blockers at best, but they are going to be really low impact on the board and don’t really fit the theme. Some options for replacements are blockers that are less hardy but ramp you into your dragons faster like— Palladium Myr and Iron Myr . And if you’re looking for quicker ways to interact with the board I’d use something like Dragon Hatchling before I’d use the artifact dudes.
Alchemist's Vial and Explorer's Scope Seem not that great, mana rocks or permanents that aren’t lands, but give mana are super good for the high casting cost dragon archetype, but I’d go for some of the other ones like Fire Diamond , Hedron Archive , Darksteel Ingot , Dreamstone Hedron , Burnished Hart
Angel's Tomb Seems pretty mediocre, it makes a single angle, some of the time. Yeah it gets around board wipes like Wrath of God but there are cooler ways to get around that like Dragon Egg or cards that actually benefit from being blown up like Anger
Battle Hymn is only particularly good, when you have several creatures out. When you are running so many big creatures it is going to be tough to have a lot out. So I’d hesitate to use it here.
Glimmerpost is only really useful in conjunction with Cloudpost , and even then I’d likely skip them in a format where you can only use one of each, they get powerful when you can run four copies of each in a deck.
Comet Storm Earthquake Pyrohemia and Hour of Devastation are all great for clearing out boards with a lot of stuff on it and since you’ll likely be trying to wipe out the game with a lot less creatures a lot of the time they’ll hurt your opponents way more than they hurt you. Relentless Assault is also just super good and cheap. You’ll also likely not have to deal with as many blockers as dragons fly, but a neat card to make your dragons more evasive and harder to chump block is Archetype of Aggression and also Goblin War Drums
Two cards that are likely out of budget, but are crazy good for the deck are Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Zirilan of the Claw . And Since you are in Mono Red I would 100% switch to Lathliss, Dragon Queen

Your side theme idea can't work. Lathliss, Dragon Queen say's whenever a non token dragon enters the battlefield, create a 5/5 dragon token. Sarkhan, Fireblood Ult say's that you put out four 5/5 dragon tokens. So they clash with one another. I would also consider Paradise Druid for a mana dork as she gives you any color of mana and she has Hexproof while she isn't tapped. Also recommend Banefire as a burn source, especially in a ramp deck as you can pump the crap out of it and hit creature or player.

No real updates to the list to share, but I did get to jam a fun little Magical Christmasland game yesterday, wherein I used Noxious Revival to chain back to back Patriarch's Bidding turns with Greater Good out, and I lucked into 1. no distruption and 2. every dragon in the deck in the graveyard.
