Moltensteel Dragon Discussion

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.
It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.
budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier
that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

As a serious comment in addition to Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon you should add Moltensteel Dragon , Aggravated Assault , Hellkite Tyrant , Curiosity , and Ophidian Eye . These will facilitate instant win combos and blowout plays against artifact heavy boards.

Might have went overboard with the signets... but a little short on cheap CC dragons, so:
Trying a dragon-based removal solution (which also ends up lower cc after the discount):
Real talk... Sarkhan isn't great. Moltensteel wins games sometimes:
Triple red (and red activation is tough); I like stealing artifacts though:
A few tapped lands aren't gonna kill anyone (plus I realized later I didn't have a couple of these):

I like the idea but there are some improvements that may help. You have basically no ramp and a rather low land count for a deck that curves out around 5/6. I would bump you lands up to 34 at least, maybe 35/36. I would seriously consider all 10 shock lands, and either the full set of check or filter. I;ve had good luck with just shocks and check with my own 5c EDH deck but with some many dual symbol creatures, the filters may be better for you. You'll need a least a few ramp sources, maybe 5-7. You're playing some very large creatures and you want to go fast. Dragonspeaker Shaman and Dragonlord's Servant both help drop the cost of dragons. Sol Ring and the signets are all low cost rocks, while some spells like Farseek , Rampant Growth and Cultivate help thin our your deck and the colors you need. You are doing reanimation some maybe some creatures like Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder .
Just some general good support cards, Patriarch's Bidding seems like it was made for your deck, as is Rise of the Dark Realms . Moltensteel Dragon is also a must, as its a one shot kill with your commander and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon .
I'm not sure your budget so I hope something helps

I woud replace Moltensteel Dragon with Verix Bladewing . If you take the 4 damage to cast Moltensteel Dragon it costs the same as casting Verix without the kicker and if you don't take the damage and you pay the full 6 mana, why not pay 1 more to create another 4/4 flying dragon? Plus, all the abilities that cheat the mana cast for Moltensteel ( Dragonlord's Servant , Dragonspeaker Shaman ) apply to Verix. On top of that, you can pay Verix's kicker with colorless mana, which your deck seems to generate a bunch of versus paying a red or taking 2 damage for a +1/+0 end of turn effect.

Just a heads up, I'd replace your Mountains with Snow-Covered Mountain s because Extraplanar Lens doubles mana of ALL lands named. More than likely no one at the table will have snow lands so... Plus this gives your access to Scrying Sheets which is something this deck greatly needs, card advantage. Also I REALLY, REALLY think you should be playing Sarkhan, Fireblood and Sarkhan's Unsealing they are WAY too good for this deck.
Here's some card suggestions!
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
- Staff of Nin
- Mind's Eye
- Wheel of Fortune
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Faithless Looting
- Tormenting Voice
- Cathartic Reunion
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Sin Prodder
- Hedron Archive
- Treasure Map Flip
- The Immortal Sun
- Experimental Frenzy
- Endless Atlas
- Coveted Jewel
Here are some cut suggestions:
- Fledgling Dragon: For four mana you could play Moltensteel Dragon or Territorial Hellkite both of which are more value in my opinion
- Emblem of the warmind: As stated previously it's too easy to deal with.
- Farsight mask: Mind's Eye is strictly better, and you don't want to get hit in the face in order to draw a card.
- Kindred charge: This is PURELY a wind more card in dragons. By the time you cast this, because you'll hold it trying to maximize the copies, you'll be doing massive damage ANYWAY.
- Ancient hellkite: A lot of mana for a meh dragon when this could be a Steel Hellkite , Kilnmouth Dragon , Skyline Despot , or a Demanding Dragon
- Archwing dragon: If you are going to dedicate paying four mana to a dragon every turn, just play Dragon Tyrant
- Slumbering dragon: I like this card idealy... but if we are being honest... This card is NEVER going to wake up, no one is going to let an 8/8 dragon sit on the table for 5 turns.
- Zirilan of the claw: It's good... but you have to exile your creatures... and that's not good for you.

Here is three win-conditions I stole from another person's deck.
MoltenSkittles Poisonous OHKO ( Scion of the Ur-Dragon + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon + Moltensteel Dragon ): The way this works is, by activating Scions ability twice after seeing no blockers, you're able to put his ability on the stack twice. For the first effect, you choose Skythirix. For the second one, you choose Moltensteel Dragon. Moltensteel dragon will resolve first, so you pump him with 12 life, giving him +6/+6, then you allow Skythirix to resolve, making the damage go through as 10 poison counters.
Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity : Infinite Damge/Draw. In a multiplayer game, You can kill off one opponent, and still have a deck to play with, and <40 cards in your hand to play against your next victim (Talk about card advantage, huh?) Reliquary Tower is also required to makes this as effective as it can be.
