RyuSama1990 I understand how the cards work, but I'm failing to see how they’re more valuable here than other dragons that fit his theme better like Boneyard Scourge , Malfegor , and Scourge of Nel Toth ; non dragons that fit his theme better, like Dragonmaster Outcast , Corpse Connoisseur , Balthor the Defiled , Flayer of the Hatebound , Dragonspeaker Shaman , and Anger ; or dragons that are just better in general, like Skyline Despot and Thunderbreak Regent .

I feel like this list could use more of the efficient 5-cost dragons like Thunderbreak Regent, Demanding Dragon, Glorybringer, Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite.

Also, Lathliss, Dragon Queen gives you a flood of tokens when mass reanimating your dragons, Dragonlord Kolaghan is a haste outlet on a body that packs a punch, and Moltensteel Dragon can mess up combat math as well as give the occasional kill out of nowhere.

Super would recommend Utvara Hellkite, it was reprinted and is super op!

Lathliss, Dragon Queen also is a new dragon that is very synergistic with dragons, Atarka, World Render gives the team double strike, Bladewing the Risen reanimates them and lets you pump all of them if you put in mana, Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury gives you all of them a ton of damage, Savage Ventmaw lets you get out more dragons too!

Scourge of Valkas is a great dragon if you can cast it for triple red, giving you removal and damage for days! Broodmate Dragon is fine, Steel Hellkite is good removal, Thunderbreak Regent is a nice addition too! Hoard-Smelter Dragon, Bogardan Hellkite, Deathbringer Regent, and Tyrant's Familiar are also good removal in dragon form.

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher gives you a field for blockage, Dragon Mage draws you more dragons, and Scourge of Kher Ridges is a board wipe on repeat too.

Consider Fierce Empath, Crux of Fate, Dragon's Hoard, and Dragon Tempest too!

Wow you were not kidding when you said you had massive changes for this deck. Most of cards that you added and cut seem to make sense as a whole, but there are a few changes I found surprising. As you said, you wanted to cut cards that only helped you cast creatures, so taking out cards like Urza's Incubator makes sense, but I was a little bit surprised that you took out Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. This card is insanely powerful in creature decks like this one, and gets even better with cards like Paradox Engine. I personally am also not a fan of having most of your removal only dealing with creatures, other than the Cyclonic Rift and Vandalblast, which means you only have one card that deal with enchantments, but it doesn't destroy it, just bounces it to hand. I feel like one of either Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile could be something like a Beast Within or Anguished Unmaking. The lack of basics was surprising, but if your meta doesn't run anything like Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, then it really isn't that big of a deal. I also feel like Homeward Path and Dragonlord Silumgar are kind of a non-bo, and I think that the dragonlord could be swapped for something else for this reason. I do like the addition of Lotus Cobra as it works insanely well with fetch lands, as being able to produce up to three mana off of one land is insane. I also like Boneyard Scourge and Thunderbreak Regent. They are definitely some of the weaker dragons, but having recursion or punishment for your opponents hitting your stuff, as well as being early game beaters is really good. Chromium, the Mutable was an interesting addition that I didn't expect, but flash, uncounterable, built-in protection, AND a 7/7 for six mana is pretty powerful. Overall, I think the new decklist is insanely powerful, just a little lacking in more versatile removal.

The deck features several early removal options Abrade, Lightning Bolt, Incinerate and Anger of the Gods to try and maintain us in game in the early turns. Lightning Bolt and Incinerate are also an option to close the game at a late stage.

We have some ways of generating card advantage with Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Sarkhan, Fireblood and Bomat Courier.

Goblin Chainwhirler serves a double function: he is a good blocker and a nice board wipe from early small creatures.

The main finishers are Glorybringer, Stormbreath Dragon and Thunderbreak Regent.

This deck is meant to be a budget deck below $250.

Please give your feedback.

Thank you.

Vlasiax the damage from Thunderbreak Regent can really add up over time but the main reason I love that dragon is if you get a nuts draw Turn one ( e.g Mox Diamond, Sol Ring etc..) you can drop him on Turn 2 which can make even Tier 1 decks scoop ;)

There are also situations where damage is automatically applied ( Caltrops for example) in which case you can do 30+ damage to your opponents face if you have 10 dragons on the board.

I personally don't see need for wheel effects here or Dragonlord Silumgar. Rest of them is pretty much self-explanatory, since you explained your combo with Isochron Scepter.
Besides that - how useful Thunderbreak Regent proves to be? I find him to be too weak sometimes because bolt in 40-life format isn't scary at all, especially for targeting, which can be avoided by e.g. boardwipe.
