First of all: nice idea! I like the tribal theme and I like dragons as well.

Are you playing competitive with this deck or is it more casual play?

For competitive, I would focus more on dragons with cmc4 or cmc5 with haste, like your allready featuring Archwing Dragon.

  1. Glorybringer (this one may also get rid of some nasty creature your opponent controls)

  2. Hunted Dragon

  3. Stormbreath Dragon (which is safe from one of the most used white single-creature removal in Legacy, Swords to Plowshares, along with Path to Exile)

  4. Thundermaw Hellkite

Running four copies of Seething Song should provide you constantly with some pretty nice blows to your opponent's life points per turn three.

Maybe add some burn spells. I'll suggest Lightning Bolt as the alltime classic in mono red, along with Price of Progress (Legacy is most likely full of multicolored decks with lots of nonbasic lands to support them).

Thinking about archetypes, I wonder what you ought to do against control decks. You could try Cavern of Souls in your sideboard to exchange for an equal amount of Mountains when you face an opponent who keeps countering your dragons. Another archetype which is probably a lot faster than your dragons would be combo decks, like ANT and stuff. These decks struggle with an (off-flavour) Eidolon of the Great Revel from your board, because they need a lot of cards with cmc3 or less to get their combo runnning.

So long, thank you for reading ;)

This deck is fun. It's not blatantly threatening enough to draw early hate but dang it can build up fast. Won a game last night with a well timed Price of Progress. Got it past a Force of Will with a Fork. All the small incremental damages add up to some serious mana.

Tunneling Geopede and Firebrand Archer are both inconspicuous but drop a land for turn, cast something like Sizzle and suddenly you have 15 mana on your second main (4 players assumed) and you've dealt 5 to all opponents.

I realize Guttersnipe is missing. I'll rectify that ASAP.

I also realize that dedicated lifegain decks will stand up well to this deck. I may need to find something to shore up that hole.

Rivenor thanks for the suggestions! Comet Storm has been in the build since jump because value. I ended up already cutting Price of Progress in place of Flame Rift. The global damage doublers also have been temporarily replaced by one sided damage doublers. They'll likely find their way back in. I actually have already tried most of your suggestions in deck, aside from the pricier ones. I'd love to add Aggravated Assault if I could only find a copy hahaha.

You know, I did originally play Price of Progress but cut it for some reason a while back. I don't deny that it can have a big impact, but I'm pretty sure I replaced it with something a little more proactive. Maybe an spell like Comet Storm

Just curious, why dont you run Price of Progress? It hurts you the least in mono red and can straight up 1 shot some opponents late game for a mere 2 mana

Hes essentially a mini Price of Progress on a stick which is potentially very high damage, even monocolored edh decks run things like Cavern of Souls, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Ancient Tomb, Reliquary Tower and Temple of the False God, and even casual playgroups run non basic taplands such as gates

Price of Progress and Comet Storm are some of the best burn cards in EDH. Stuffy Doll is great with most all types of red Blasphemous Act style removal. Speaking of removal: Spine of Ish Sah, Chain Reaction, Pyrohemia, Caldera Hellion are all absent at the moment. Solemn Simulacrum because red ramp. Maybe some doublers Gauntlet of Might, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun. Is Whispersilk Cloak more valuable than Darksteel Plate in your meta? Lastly since red draw is minimal you might want to consider Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.
