Hellkite Overlord and Scourge of the Throne are great dragons to add. I ran Cyclonic Rift and Sudden Spoiling in mine as board clears for being attacked or attacking. Descendants' Path is also a great card for tribal along with Urza's Incubator

I also put Ilharg in but you already have it ;)

I'm kind of with you there:
-add Backdraft Hellkite
And if we go in that direction, you probably don't need Fire Covenant ; that more depends on how many board wipes you feel you need, and which boardwipes are most effective in your meta (and whether/not you're running Balefire Dragon ).
On my list, I'm definitely swapping out Fellwar Stone for Arcane Signet , when it releases, and so far I've been happy with the Moxen over the 3CMC ramp, but for those kinds of hands, the deck might want to look at a Windfall , Wheel of Fortune , or Timetwister slot to refill your hand after a fast start/disrupt other kept hands. There have been times when I didn't have an extra land to ditch to Mox Diamond and/or an extra spell to exile to Chrome Mox , and having them be dead draws later is a real risk vs the fast start payoff.

I recently think about cutting Scourge of the Throne since I still have proxy of him and more often than not I'm at the highest life total so it's just an expensive vanilla card. That's why I thought about recently spoiled Backdraft Hellkite .
Other cards that I think about cutting are Chromatic Lantern and Anguished Unmaking since they both cost 3 and don't provide that much value as they used to but currently I wonder what could be good enough in these spots. However, I might add Fire Covenant and then it might be an enabler for Scourge of the Throne to trigger extra combat.

Well, I've found that post- Paradox Engine 's ban, a lot of cEDH and/or "high power" players in the area have re-evaluated what they want to get out of the format, or in the cases of a few Sisay/Arcum decks, quit the format entirely, so games have slowed down a bit. Which of course has allowed me to focus more on Good Boi dragons vs speed/curve/go-wide considerations. It's also just a bit more fun to swing with some of these Good Bois than vanilla tokens, but it has made it just a little harder to get the old draw/value engine online. You?
And yes, I did cut Dragonlord Kolaghan again, as Temur Ascendancy remains a primary tutor target and there are at least 2x other haste enablers in the list. I never liked drawing her naturally and never tutored for her, so out she went.
As to Backdraft Hellkite , I'm definitely finding a slot for it. Right now I'm looking at perhaps cutting Dragon Broodmother or Scourge of the Throne for it. What will you cut to slot it in? Dragon Broodmother is a good card, of course, but even with "perfect" mana, her pip requirements have been really hard to satisfy.
Semi-related: As my local meta has slowed down a bit, graveyard value engines have become a problem, as have go-wide token strategies, so I've found a slot for Rakdos Charm for the times when Deathrite Shaman can't effectively be the Yard Police on his own (he's better for 1v1 policing, anyway). The flexibility there has been very good vs, say, Tormod's Crypt , and with Backdraft Hellkite , it's only going to get better.
