Thunderous Wrath is a great card in any format it's available in, and it's not all that pricey either. I personally love Temple of Abandon, too. It's a slow land, but never underestimate the ability to Scry. You can't go wrong with a little Vexing Shusher, either.
Now, if you want to add in a bit more green, you could throw in some ramp cards like Utopia Sprawl, Arbor Elf, Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid, or even do a little ramp-burn combo with Zhur-Taa Druid. With the extra ramp, you could very easy catch your opponent off-guard with high-costing heavy hitters like Banefire or Borborygmos Enraged.

Cards that you should take out: Infectious Bloodlust (unless you add 2 more) Flamespeaker's Will, Ancient Grudge is waayy better, Great Furnace They are not modern! lol, Whims of the Fates its just not good, Gruul Guildgate, Nyxborn Rollicker a 1/1 for is not good in modern. Cards to Add: Burning-Tree Shaman its good as a 3/4 for 3 and can only get better, Temple of Abandon, Cinder Glade while these are not needed they will be nice. Sorry that this is kinda short, this is my second time writing this and I got a bit impatient.....

Werewolves is going to be a rough deck in modern, I'm afraid. Most decks won't let you flip, and many decks will out grind you. That being said, there are a few things you can do too make this list a bit better.
Realize your list is an aggro deck. Werewolves wants to kill as fast as possible. You cannot afford to run lands that enter tapped. Cut the Temple of Abandon's for other rare lands, ideally Wooded Foothills and Stomping grounds, but more budget friendly options are Karplusan Forest. Though it is absurdly expensive, Cavern of Souls would give you a great control matchup and smooth your mana Running in with this aggro theme are ways to push through damage. Atarka's Command Has a lot of utility, and you can get some work out of the pump.
Id change your curve. Kruin Outlaw Flip is a win more card, it will never pull out a win. Id change her out for Hermit of the Natterknolls Flip for some more draw power. You also need more one drops, id suggest trimming one Geier Reach Bandit Flip and one Moonmist for two Reckless Waif Flip. Its almost delver, and punishes greedy hands hard. Finally, Collected Company can be a fantastic combat trick for surprise board prescence.

Replacing the guildgates with Temple of Abandon is all upside, and pretty cheap.

Three things you need that stand out from your list are more fast mana, mana consistency, and some haste effects.
This looks like a budget build so I will try to keep my recommendations to less than $2 each, though I think a couple of recommendations I'm going to make are worth the additional cost.
On the mana consistency: Kaalia (and many of your other cards) has (have) heavy color commitments, so more dual lands are in order. Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Dragonskull Summit, Temple of Malice, Temple of Silence, and Temple of Abandon would be a good start. You might also add Vivid Meadow and Vivid Crag; I generally don't like CITP ("comes into play tapped") lands in Kaalia decks, but the above are pretty much your best budget options, and the temples at least give you the useful "scry 1" while the vivids provide all three colors mana.
On the other hand, I'm personally NOT a fan of the "karoo" lands (i.e. Rakdos Carnarium), especially because there's a good chance that the land you're going to be bouncing is going to come back into play tapped; you're better off with the Guildgates, the Tarkir "refuge" lands (i.e. Wind-Scarred Crag), or basic lands.

Urza's Incubator is great for any tribal deck and so is Door of Destinies and I agree with the above that ramp is necessary for Dragons. maybe upping the land count to 36-37 because 34 is super light for dragons. And maybe things like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach and lastly a Harrow for some more ramp spells. If you are willing to spend another $15 though picking up a Thran Dynamo and a Gilded Lotus would be great for the deck. Warstorm Surge is great for Dragons because they come out doing damage! Speaking of Dragons have you met Dragonstorm which is a late game bomb. Also I am not entirely sure why you are running Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in the deck. It seems to slow and completely pointless for early and mid game(sorry don't mean to sound rude). Also I would take out Garruk for one of the Sarkhans if you really want another Planewalker to replace him. for your land base you can also run the more budget friendly r/g lands things like Rugged Highlands,Kazandu Refuge,Temple of Abandon,Temple of the False God, Game Trail, Timber Gorge,Mossfire Valley and lastly Karplusan Forest. There's also the two best budget fetches Terramorphic Expanse, and Evolving Wilds to help you get the colors you need. My final recommendations for you are Dragonlord Atarka, Dragonmaster Outcast, maybe a Skyline Despot and Fires of Yavimaya I hope this may have been helpful to you!

Not knowing what you're able to afford/ willing to spend I'll make both budget and non-budget recommendations; if anything you'll have something to aspire to, right?
I'll start where I typically do on here, and that's with the mana base. I can't stress this enough--with 3 colors you just can't run a bunch of basics; you need to be able to reliably access all three colors early and often. I'd shoot for 36-38 lands with no more than 12-15 basic lands between all three if your colors.
Budget (~$2.50 or less each):
