Love the deck. May I make one small suggestion?
I mean a single Dragon with +X/+X is great and all, but ALL Dragons with Menace is a pain in the ass.
And I don't think I saw it in here. Have you considered Descendent's Path? I also find much success with See the Unwritten, though I also play Modern so perhaps that card isn't powerful enough for EDH.
Hope I helped :) really do like the deck though. Dragons = #1 favorite Tribe

Hey! Thanks for the upvote and comment.
I'd like to address each card personally.
Dragonmaster Outcast - I absolutely love this card. Seriously underrated. Yes, of course you must be weary of things like Lightning Bolt, Shock, Fatal Push, Path to Exile... Hell even Golgari Charm. But I find if you try to build a deck worrying about all of the IF's, you won't have any fun. Having said that, while I love this card, I don't feel he has a place in the deck. This deck aims to cheat out Dragons first and foremost. If I can cheat out lands, awesome; The majority of my mana, however, is produced by non-land sources: Birds of Paradise, Generator Servant, Savage Ventmaw, & Xenagos, the Reveler. I have a Mono-Red Token / Burn deck that uses a playset of Dragonmaster Outcast, so I do fully know of his potential. In this deck however, I feel he's not a very good pick. The reason is, I need my 1-CMC slot open for Birds of Paradise. Dragon Broodmother already produces TONS of Tokens (On EACH Upkeep, not just mine), as does Utvara Hellkite and Sarkhan Vol's -6. So I've got Tokens plenty covered :)
Dragonlord's Servant! Ahh, a staple of any and all Dragon Decks! Sooo... why isn't he in here? I opted in place of him Generator Servant. Why? Because not only does it get me rather than a reduced cost of , I can use the on any spell I'd like. IF it is cast on a Creature, that Creature gains Haste. But I can do it on, say, Genesis Wave if I'd like. And something I've noticed people don't normally think about is that you can divide the into + . Each of these can be imparted onto separate Creatures, giving BOTH of them Haste. That's why I did it this way, instead.
Utvara Hellkite. Oh. My. God. This guy is a beast of a beast. I'm running 2x of him already. I put him in nearly every Dragon Deck I make. So... funny thing. I can get a T3 Savage Ventmaw. 3x Lands + Birds of Paradise + Generator Servant. Ventmaw now has Haste, and I can swing and get . I bring that up, because on T4, even if I don't play a 4th Land, I'd have access to 10 mana in total (3x Lands, 1x Birds of Paradise, +6 mana from Savage Ventmaw). With 10 / at my disposal, I can get a T4 Utvara Hellkite, easily. Even if he's within the top 8 cards of my Library, I can cheat him out for with See the Unwritten. So, a T4 Utvara Hellkite kind of trumps a T6 :)
I had not considered Door of Destinies. Since that's based on whenever I CAST the spell, I'm not certain my guys would get bigger via Tokens. HOWEVER! For more mana, Coat of Arms will make things VERY interesting... Likewise, there's always Crucible of Fire for a bit cheaper. I use those in that Mono-Red Token / Burn that I mentioned earlier.
I had no considered Atarka's Command. To address each point, however:
A.) Lifegain isn't an issue with this deck. Between Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest, you're looking at some SERIOUS Non-Combat Damage. Especially when Utvara Hellkite, Dragon Broodmother, and Sarkhan Vol kick in. I've once dealt over 70 damage on Turn 6. Not BY Turn 6. ON Turn 6.
B.) 3 points of damage is fun and all, but I'd rather spend that on other spells, like a Genesis Wave :)
C.) Extra Lands are always useful, but as I said the vast majority of this deck seeks to use Non-Land sources to produce it's Mana.
D.) +1/+1 and Reach would be a solid benefit, if 85% of my deck didn't already have Flying :p
I'm not trying to crap on your suggestions. I really appreciate them all :D
There's just a particular method to my madness, is all :3

Creature spells on the stack are not creatures, but spells. So they can only be targeted by spells that target spells. So Lightning Bolt can not target a spell on the stack.
Spells only care what the game state looks like as it is cast and/or as it resolves. See the Unwritten checks as it resolves. So it will see the Shaman of the Great Hunt. But you would need a way to give See the Unwritten flash, as it is a sorcery and can not normally be cast in response to another spell.

First, can a creature be destroyed by damage or destruction spells while on the stack ex. Scissors Lizard cast, hits stack gets Lightning Bolted? Next, during main phase, if i were to cast Shaman of the Great Hunt and it enters the battlefield, then is targeted by Galvanic Bombardment, but before it resolves i play See the Unwritten, would the ferocious effect for See the Unwritten still trigger or would the shaman leave the battlefield beforehand? (assuming this is a legal play)

@RicketyEng Thanks! And yes, Collected Company didn't do so hot in the time I tested. I really wanted some See the Unwritten sort of effects and I think green cards that target permanents rather than creatures should do the trick.
I'll keep you posted. I think I've cycled through every Grimlock list trying to get ideas and I feel like we're all part of this little club. Haha.

Thanks chadsansing for your answer! No I haven't tested them yet but I'm sure I'll test them soon. Genesis Wave, Tooth and Nail and Boros Charm look very interesting. Maybe switching See the Unwritten or Selvala's Stampede with Genesis Wave could have a nice impact especially for number of outputs. About Overrun I'm not sure if it will change the fate of the game since is very difficult to keep creatures in play for enough time in my playgroup.About Triumph of the Hordes, It looks really nice but I think that infect could be seen badly by other guys. Savage Beating could instead be a nice wincon for more than one player if casted in a proper combat. Thank you again for your answer!
