Interesting deck! I would however recommend narrowing down to one potential commander so you can better focus the deck. Personally, I have both Vaevictis and Prossh decks, Prossh is a beast in a token build, but I'd say Vaevictis is the better choice for dragon tribal.

I think you could probably use Rhythm of the Wild , Urabrask the Hidden and Ogre Battledriver which are all great haste enablers.

If I had to make suggestions about things to cut, I think there are better alternatives to Madrush Cyclops , Rise from the Grave and Settle the Score . Anyway, sorry to ramble. I like the deck!

It may be best to try to focus on two or three specific colors to make your mana base a little more consistent. RUG are the best colors for dragons so maybe if you could drop some of your greedier-costed White and Black cards, such as Serra the Benevolent , Dakkon Blackblade , Debt to the Deathless , Pox , Settle the Score , Leyline of the Void , Heightened Awareness , and Divine Intervention and replace them with some ramp spells, cheaper dragons, and potentially some anthems, I think you've definitely got more consistency and less dead draws than you did before.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Karn is definitely card draw and has that nice negative with those Karnstructs, so it would probably be good other than those Karnstructs being a problem with all your board wipes. Lol It's also important to note the difference in draw backs. Karn lets you get your opponent's choice of top two, which is a bad 2 deep search since you can simply get the silver countered card back the next turn. Chandra only gets the top 1, but it's a use it or lose it scenario since you only have one turn.

A bad version of The Elderspell is Settle the Score but I don't know if I'd recommend it. Also, Have you thought about Ignite the Beacon or Board the Weatherlight ?

Have you thought about using Settle the Score or The Elderspell as a way to increase the counters on your PWs?

I would run The Elderspell in the sideboard for PW hate that increases "Lord Davriel" board duration. There's also Settle the Score as creature removal that even works on the Gods that can increase his board duration as well, maybe even good enough for the main deck.

Settle the Score for Moment of Craving IMO but its a heavy mana investment
