What's up. This is Marc. Here are some suggestions. Some can be pricy but they're just ideas.

Thanks smiffdemon for the suggestions! I have looked over the deck and made some substitutions based on your advice. I will list the changes here so people know what I swapped out. Furyborn Hellkite for Kilnmouth Dragon, Drumhunter for Dragon Mage, Overwhelming Stampede for Xenagos, God of Revels, Moonveil Dragon for Moltensteel Dragon, Ryusei, the Falling Star for Stormbreath Dragon, and Sight of the Scalelords for Harmonize.

Nice budget build! I'll try to stay away from really expensive upgrades.
Stormbreath Dragon is only a few dollars and can wreck those high draw spell control decks that you see at commander tables when it turns monstrous. I also like Moltensteel Dragon because you can power it up without any mana investment. Kilnmouth Dragon is a beast especially with double strike. Dragon Mage is awesome hand disruption for you opponents and a wheel effect for you when you dont have the right cards in hand. Knollspine Dragon fills a similar role, allowing you to often draw a massive amount of cards with the damage you're gonna be shelling out. Always good in Gruul colors. Speaking of, I'd definitely pick up a Harmonize and throw it in there. That card is reliable in any deck with green.
Ramp super hard and you can probably even consider Dragonstorm. Alternatively, if you find yourself struggling to get enough mana to play multiple spells Quicksilver Amulet, Belbe's Portal, and Dragon Arch are winners.

MoGoose831 Appreciate it man! Thanks for breaking down the Metalwork Colossus math for me... I'll definatly keep an eye on my artifacts and may pick it up later! And I suppose Sneak Attack will always be there too.
TheHamster Blood Lust seems like a not quite as good +X/+0 effect, and I've been phasing those out recently anyway. And yeah, you've been watching this deck for a while now! I believe you were my first commenter actually! It's been quite a journey. And I completely forgot about Martyr's Bond! I'll take another good luck at it and try to find the money and a slot in the 99 for it! Thanks again friend!
PartyJ Thanks for responding! Adarkar Valkyrie is good, especially for stealing my opponents' creatures, but isn't as good for most of my creatures, who would die again at end of turn. Used to have more Act of Treason and they'll continue to float in and out of the side/maybeboard. Archangel Avacyn Flip is cool. Quick question: can I flash her in at the end of my untap step? Is that a thing? I was so excited when I saw Teferi's Protection spoiled! Amazing card but not a $25 I need to spend on Brion haha! Thanks for your help!
Thanks for coming friend! Rings of Brighthearth is too expensive but perhaps Thousand-Year Elixir will go in! I agree it'd be the perfect 3-drop before Brion. Grafted Exoskeleton is.... was... not sure why I took it out. Haha! It may definitely find it's way back in though! Thanks a ton!
Zimmers_0 Thanks for responding! I've responded to both of those previously but they'll both stay sideboard staples for now. The Act of Treason effects are usually what I cut first to test new stuff. Thanks again!
Casey4321 I admire your humility! I've covered my reasoning Act of Treason effects well enough I think haha! Moltensteel Dragon I never really cared for but Magewright Stone I might pick up. Thanks again friend!
One last THANK YOU to all who comment/upvote! You guys are the best!

I love all of your ideas actually. I'm pretty new to magic so creating a commander deck has been a very long process, I just don't know all of the cards out there it's overwhelming. I'm adding in all of the cards you mentioned and removing Dromoka, the Eternal and Hoard-Smelter Dragon, I've been on the fence about both of those cards for awhile now. I just can't part with Moltensteel Dragon though, Moltensteel Dragon + Scion of the Ur-Dragon is just to good when it happens. Great OHKO combo.
What do you think about my land? The list is really starting to come together outside of the land I feel. I just don't know what to do other than a set of Dual's which I can't afford hahaha. Any suggestions there?

I just got a chance to play the Dragon precon last night.
I ended up winning due to an explosive turn that the other players couldn't recover from or hope to outrace. I can honestly say that being able to pull it off was directly thanks to Fist of Suns and Curse of Opulence. Since the gold tokens can be sacrificed for any color of mana it played a huge roll in me being able to pay one of each to activate the fist.
That being the case when I tweak the deck I will be making sure Dragon Arch and Quicksilver Amulet are both in the deck. Maybe even Belbe's Portal. These, like fist of suns, offer us a good way to drop dragons we otherwise would have a hard time casting. Making it easier to cast dragons that are great but might not have made the cut because of color restrictions (Bladewing the Risen for example).
Personally im not a fan of Moltensteel Dragon or Hoard-Smelter Dragon. They don't really do enough on their own to warrant playing for me. Same goes for Dromoka, the Eternal. She may be one of my favorite dragons but her bolter ability doesn't do much when all your creatures are already fatties. Lastly Explore isn't great in commander. If you don't start with it or get it early it an upsetting top deck later in the game... I would consider running Explosive Vegetation over it since you are low on 4 cost cards anyway. Speaking of which it isn't a dragon but Vizier of the Menagerie is a great inclusion here.
