-1 Path of Ancestry +1 Mouth of Ronom

Mouth of Ronom is another snow land and it just works so well in conjunction with fighting bears and Crucible of Worlds . It also serves as a colorless source of damage against pro-green creatures.

Trying to build my own Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck right now. Is there a reason why you play Savage Lands over Path of Ancestry ?

Fist of Suns doesn't cheat out creatures for 0. Fist of Suns replaces what you can pay, not the CMC. Morophos effects the CMC.

28 land is way too little. Bane of Progress , Planar Cleansing and cards that remove artifacts destroy your game. Reliquary Tower , Ash Barrens , Unclaimed Territory , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , Path of Ancestry are all land that should be in the deck.

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma fits the theme, and gives all the dragons that don't have it trample

Sarkhan Unbroken , Sarkhan, Dragonsoul , Sarkhan, Fireblood , and Sarkhan the Masterless to protect them are some planeswalkers who help dragons.

Hypersonic Dragon ... if you had any sorceries like Wrath of God , and Crux of Fate instants and adds a haste creature

You need removal. Vindicate removes the Propaganda that destroys your swinging. Crackling Doom removes the opponents biggest creature. Assassin's Trophy and/or Putrefy removes a endless-combo piece. Swords to Plowshares removes indestructible. Removal is crucial to advancing your own game.

Crosis, the Purger , and Ramos, Dragon Engine are 2 dragons I play

Temur Ascendancy is a card that helps you draw more, and the haste on dragons is amazing

Taigam, Ojutai Master is my last consideration. Makes sure your dragons hit the battlefield.

Well, it's good that it works then :) It also depends on the deck of course. I think I'll just have to see. Another suggestion for your deck would be Path of Ancestry btw. It's better than Opulent Palace and even has synergy with 4 of your creatures (excluding Muldrotha herself) :)

Savage Ventmaw is always nice, especially with Hellkite Charger . They don't give an infinite loop, since you're one mana shy, but they certainly work well together.

Also, I might reconsider cutting Path of Ancestry , especially when you have Descendants' Path .

Some updates:

Massacre Girl has been added at the expense of cutting Black Market . At the same cmc I felt it reasonable. Nim Deathmantle has been cut for Rings of Brighthearth (at long last!). And finally, Path of Ancestry has been axed in favor of the Deserted Temple inclusion, instead of a Swamp — I prefer to have my lands be in untapped, dont you?

So as a disclaimer, I'll be using my experiences with my deck, March of the Dusk Legion, as a point of reference for my recommendations.

Mana-Base Tuning Show

So one thing I noticed is that your list is a bit unfocused in terms of strategy. What do you want to accomplish with your deck? Is it a token deck? +1/+1 counters? Aristocrats? You have cards that support all of these strategies but not enough of any one to reach critical mass.

Start with the mana-base changes and decide what you want the deck to accomplish and we can go from there!
