You may want to change what format the deck is under because right now it isn't standard legal.

But just at first glance I can tell you that just by cutting your cards down from 80 to 60, and eliminating the unnecessary 1 of cards that your deck will already smooth itself out at least a little. Since you need help smoothing out lands and creatures, you can cut your land count down from 31 (way overkill) down to 25-27 (you gotta find the sweet spot :) ).

You should also pick a focus on what you want your deck to do. Almost all of your creatures are pretty high in manacost but you have no ramp spell and nothing to accelerate to them except one lonely Hedron Archive, and Rampant Growth, which just isn't enough. I am not taking Seek the Horizon because it doesn't actually accelerate/ramp you it just filters your draws.

You obviously want a dragon theme, so instead of running one of each dragon pick a couple of the better ones and stick with them, then eliminate anything that doesn't help your strategy.

Also replace things like Sylvan Ranger, which again doesn't ramp or accelerate just filters. Instead, try to use things like Elvish Mystic, Zhur-Taa Druid, Beastcaller Savant, or Somberwald Sage.

Also I would remove Xenagos, the Reveler. He is a good planeswalker but this deck needs something that works better in here. His first ability, the way your deck is, will not net you a significant amount of mana, and his second ability is arguably his better one, and while his ultimate is obviously beast in a deck like this you never run a walker because of his last ability because you don't always get to use it. I would instead try to run 2-3 copies of Domri Rade. His first ability helps you filter draws, his second ability acts as removal, and his ult will literally win you the game lol.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask any questions. I am assuming this is a modern/casual deck and not standard one :)
