Creature — Dragon
Flying, haste, protection from white
: Monstrosity 3. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put three +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
When Stormbreath Dragon becomes monstrous, it deals damage to each opponent equal to the number of cards in that player's hand.
Stormbreath Dragon Discussion

TypicalTimmy, I made room for Utvara Hellkite and Scourge of Valkas . I don't like the increase in mana curve, but the combo there-in is pretty devastating. I dropped Stormbreath Dragon and Demanding Dragon to make room.

Oh yeah, I always forget about Disallow . And I'll definitely take a look at my mix of counterspells ...

as I'm experimenting with Dragons as well, I'll offer some tips.
first off its too top heavy. I would take out all cards you have with Hellkite in the name as they cost too much to be of use. Moonveil Dragon doesn't do enough for costing 6 mana. the only 6 drop dragon you'd want to consider is Lathliss, and then only as a 1 of, and that's because she makes free tokens when you cast a dragon. I have 1 Descent of the Dragons instead because my deck banks on Dragon Tempest and Scourge of Valkas so I want to get as many dragons entering as possible, and if I can blow up my entire board to get 4 or 5 dragon tokens, that's usually game.
speaking of Scourge of Valkas, that is a good win con if you're on the "get a lot of dragons" plan, so you want 4 of those guys, and that's the only 5 drop you should have, but you can consider Glorybringer , Stormbreath Dragon or Thundermaw Hellkite as alternate options. Mirrorwing is pretty terrible.
in my 4 drops, I only have Avaricious and Thunderbreak Regent. Avaricious is pretty good for extra draw if you're ok discarding at end of turn and Regent simply makes it hard for opponents to spot remove your stuff. Crucible is not very good at all in modern and is a card you only want in EDH dragons.
Sarkhan Fireblood is your goto card for dragons and you want 2-3 of him ideally. not 4 cause extra copies are useless. Dragon Egg is decent as a 1 of, but I actually have been liking Dragon's Hoard at 3-4 because of how helpful it is. the turn you play it you can use it for mana, or if you play a dragon after it, you can immediately draw off of it and its easy to build up multiple counters on it and then its a constant extra card every turn.
at 2 mana I like 3-4 Dragon Tempest because that's one of the main win cons, but I don't wanna see a bunch early on in lieu of creatures. I have 3 of the goblins that makes the dragons cost 1 less, but I also have Generator Servant as it gives you 2 mana plus haste to the dragon incase you don't have a Tempest. I don't think much else in mono red makes sense.
you need some 1 drops for consistency. I like Slumbering Dragon because if played early and left unchecked, he can grow large by himself, but more importantly he's a 1 drop dragon to trigger your Tempest effects late game. 4 Faithless Looting is the main thing you want. its the best draw spell red has, letting you trade extra lands for spells or extra Sarkhans or whatever. also I recommend a couple Bolts just cause its Bolt.
I'm still play testing and figuring this deck out, and trying to see whether I should splash in some green for ramp or not, but that's what I've found works best so far. if you want all the big expensive dragons, those are best for EDH.

Had an interesting 1v1 play-through on this against an Edgar deck. That deck would probably run all over this one 8/10 times.
I had Stormbreath Dragon (not monstrous), Glorybringer and Zirilan of the Claw out. I had Glorybringer up a few turns and had exerted to clear some of the board by pinging and had kept things locked down with AEther Flash . My opponent had just tutored for Austere Command , but couldn't cast it on their turn. They had one creature untapped on their side and they were sitting at 30 life. I was sitting on 6 mana and had Final Fortune in my hand.
I tapped 3 and Zirilan to tutor out Tyrant's Familiar and swung. Tyrant's Familiar dealt with the one blocker and allowed all three to get through for 15 (after Tyrant's Familiar added +2/+2). In my second main phase I use the Final Fortune with my remaining 3 mana. After untapping, I tutor again with Zirilan of the Claw and go get Mana-Charged Dragon . With my remaining three mana I add +2/+0 to the Mana-Charged Dragon and I am able to swing for another 15, taking my appointment out.
This is exactly what this deck is designed to do - tutor for answers and a wincon. I don't think it will work often and it will struggle even more in multiplayer, but in 1v1, it is fun. I need to play test some more.

Also, Stormbreath Dragon is a meta choice and will never actually be caged by mairsil. I have a friend who regularly draws a ton of cards and stormbreath can do some heavy lifting against him

You have swiftfoot boots listed twice and I'm not sure about the inclusion of Stormbreath Dragon but otherwise I like this version of Mairsil :)

Ah, that makes sense with Domri . In practice though, it's been pretty rare that I've been able to use that extra mana. That said, every now and then we get to do something like Cast Domri; +1 for a Green mana; Cast Arbor Elf and ETB with Haste. Untap Forest + Utopia Sprawl . Cast Abrade to destroy our opponent's Aether Vial . :-D
Tbh, more often the value from him is a -3 to draw a card or two/filter out some Lands and a late-game Blood Moon , and then "gain" X life (because our opponent swings to kill Domri rather than taking a chance that we use him to ramp into a Stormbreath Dragon or Inferno Titan with Riot on our next turn).

I don't think Rhythm is worth a spot in here, seems like a redundancy that's not needed due to your commander.
As for growth spiral, I would look at maybe Roar of the Crowd or Cancel . Roar seems like it has a high CMC for what it does, especially when you're likely to chose dragons. Since they have such a high CMC you're unlikely to have enough out to make it worth running over another stronger burn card, such as Comet Storm or such.
As far as other adjustments, I would try and make the following swaps:
+1 from me, I like dragon decks.
