Shock is just a worse Lightning Bolt. I don't think any of those are incredibly necessary considering many of your dragons have innate abilities to deal damage for removal purposes. Although Skred is a thing you may find spicy to find a use for your Snow-Covered Mountains.

Honestly, Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast are two of my all time favorite cards and prove to be useful red counterspells against a pesky blue player. It really just comes down to a meta call, and I personally would continue running them.

What are your thoughts on stuff like Lightning Shrieker and Archwing Dragon? With Shrieker you can have a tutorable 5/5 flyer with haste and trample every turn for Zirilan's ability since it continuously goes back to your deck at the end of turn while Archwing simply goes to your hand. Inherent abilities like that to avoid being exiled may prove to be extremely useful in this deck in case you aren't pulling your Sundial or Stylus. Just some things to think about to play around with a bit.

I am a bit curious about your choice of running Snow-Covered Mountain without running Extraplanar Lens. I totally get it if it's entirely for the art alone, because there really isn't a downside to running them haha. I do have a frequent Zo-Zu the Punisher player in my playgroup who runs Snow-Covered Mountains so if I play a deck like this I could just wait for him to drop a lens so I don't have to!

You have obviously have pored over each and every card choice carefully and painstakingly. I thought I saw one more possible upgrade in the form of Snow-Covered Mountains and Scrying Sheets, only to find out that you already are working towards them. Great deck!

EDIT: Found a possible card that you might be interested in! Hammer of Nazahn has some upsides over Darksteel Plate that may make it a compelling replacement (or addition but I don't know what I'd cut!)

Change all your lands to Snow-Covered Mountain Snow-Covered Plains then run Skred

Then Skred your Reckoner or Doll

you could run Snow-Covered Mountains instead of regular Mountains then run Extraplanar Lens and Scrying Sheets

You might want to consider using Extraplanar Lens in order to double your mana output on the Snow covered mountains.

What do you think of Scrying Sheets combined with Snow-Covered Mountain? This would help to utilize Frenzy better. You would miss out on thinning tho.

You might want to consider revamping your mana base a bit. There's a couple of tricks that could help you take down the total number of lands in your deck while still improving your consistency, which would allow you to transfer some of your maybeboard to your mainboard.

Extraplanar Lens would be a solid pick for you since you've got so many basic lands to work with, but it's downside is that if your opponents use basic Mountains as well, you'll likely be buffing them as well. You can solve this pretty easily by swapping out all your Mountains with Snow-Covered Mountains. This will allow you to use Extraplanar Lens much more selfishly than you'd otherwise be resigned to.

Another nasty trick for getting those basic lands out on the field more consistently would be throwing in an Arid Mesa, Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, and Wooded Foothills. Using the abilities of each of these lands will thin your deck a bit and help with your draw reliability, and if you also add in Crucible of Worlds you'll be able to continually use any one of them to pull basic lands to the battlefield each turn if you need to. Having to worry less about mana means you can focus more on the good stuff.
