Taigam, Ojutai Master
Legendary Creature — Human Monk
Instant, sorcery, and Dragon spells you control can't be countered by spells or abilities.
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell from your hand, if Taigam, Ojutai Master attacked this turn, that spell gains rebound. (Exile the spell as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast that card from exile without paying its mana cost.)

Taigam, Ojutai Master Discussion

As a note Time walk is not EDH legal and Kefnet is ok with turn spells that exile themselves
You’ll be casting a copy and only the copy get’s exiled, but you don’t care about that anyways it’s just a copy
There are the core turn spells like Time Warp , Temporal Manipulation , and Capture of Jingzhou that will be the absolute best. But ones like Temporal Trespass with their own cost reducing abilities are nice, especially since you actually “cast” the copy so you can pay alternative costs like Delve
I also don’t think you really need a Lab man/Jace win unless you have an alternative infinite draw combo. When you demonstrate turns you can also just beat your opponents in the face with your dead bird, yeah it’s 6 hits each but you’re on turns anyways. At least that’s what I do with my Taigam, Ojutai Master Intuition Turns deck trying to win by turn 4/5
Other than that it seems like it’s mostly money upgrades to your core categories: Ramp, draw, and tutor so you can get your combo online ASAP. For what cards to get for that I’d recommend looking at the aforementioned Taigam deck or looking up a cEDH primer.
Also: don’t be afraid to proxy some cards. No one should pay $1,400 for a single piece of cardboard, or even $200 really. Personal opinion, you do you on that.

Fist of Suns doesn't cheat out creatures for 0. Fist of Suns replaces what you can pay, not the CMC. Morophos effects the CMC.
28 land is way too little. Bane of Progress , Planar Cleansing and cards that remove artifacts destroy your game. Reliquary Tower , Ash Barrens , Unclaimed Territory , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , Path of Ancestry are all land that should be in the deck.
Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma fits the theme, and gives all the dragons that don't have it trample
You need removal. Vindicate removes the Propaganda that destroys your swinging. Crackling Doom removes the opponents biggest creature. Assassin's Trophy and/or Putrefy removes a endless-combo piece. Swords to Plowshares removes indestructible. Removal is crucial to advancing your own game.
Temur Ascendancy is a card that helps you draw more, and the haste on dragons is amazing
Taigam, Ojutai Master is my last consideration. Makes sure your dragons hit the battlefield.

Aceh The goggles will only copy a red instant or sorcery so I don't think I'd be able to get a ton of use out of it since I won't always have red spell to copy with it. Thanks for the suggestion!
alechodgin23 Thanks! I've had a bunch of explosive wins myself; seems your friend enjoys the deck too! Aetherflux Reservoir I've kinda avoided using but I'd include it if I want to bump up my win rate.
Taigam, Ojutai Master was in the deck before and didn't do too much. But the uncounterable ability on him is pretty useful if more counterspells start popping up in my meta.
I've had my eye on Maelstrom Nexus or a while but haven't picked on up yet. I'll probably find a slot for it in my next deck update.
Thanks for the suggestions!

VeloCity_isnt_DT: As long as the second casting of Approach is from my hand that would win me the game. Casting a cheaper copy with Kefnet would make it slightly easier to win, the only problem is having 12 mana available to win on the spot!

Pikobyte The idea reminded me of so many cool games that I could not help myself writing you down a novel!
And I totally understand your point. Always seeking for more ''competitiveness'' fastly becomes boring and kills all the fun of EDH. That's why I dismantled Hokori in the end - even if it was solid and flavorful, it was just too disruptive and unfun to face for other players.
If you like cards that we rarely see, give a try to Barl's Cage . I only tried it once in a control-ish Azorius Taigam, Ojutai Master deck and I was amazed by its potential. It's still pretty much a funny card, and isn't too disruptive either.
If you feel like you're still lacking card draw, there are multiple viable options you don't actually run. As mentioned in my previous comment, Dawn of Hope is likable. Armistice is playable and good at politics. Alms Collector is a suitable meta depending tool. Tamiyo's Journal , Book of Rass (the book basically is a non-black, lot worse, Erebos/Greed) are both a bit expensive for their respective effects, but they're also effective if you really need that.
If you don't mind giving it a look, as I'm looking for some feedbacks to ameliorate my own brews, here's the last of my EDH decklist I updated on this site : Ishai and Ludevic
