This looks like tons of fun. Board the Weatherlight and Time of Need might help find the legends you need as well.

Hello there! So I would LOVE to help you out! Ok so as you have read the MOST and I mean ABSOLUTE MOST lands you can have is 40 and higher that is just not needed. In slivers or just making slivers form your sliver queen try getting cards like when a creature enters the battlefield and things like that and be careful of cards that so when you cast a creature spell instead of when a creature enters the battlefield. Artifacts - Keep Ashnod's Altar Chromatic Lantern Gilded Lotus Sol Ring Lands - Keep Canopy Vista Command Tower Dark Depths Flagstones of Trokair Gaea's Cradle Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Pillar of the Paruns Thespian's Stage VesuvaInstants - Enlightened Tutor Vampiric TutorSorceries - Channel the Suns Commune with Nature Demonic Tutor Restore Sylvan Scrying Time of Need Vindicate Creatures - Auriok Champion Courser of Kruphix Essence Warden Hangarback Walker Joiner Adept Linvala, Keeper of Silence Soul's Attendant Soul Warden Urborg ElfEnchantments - Defense of the Heart Exquisite Blood gravepact Land Tax Sanguine Blood Tranquil Grove Ok so those are the cards that I would keep for starters. Cards like Azusa, Lost but Seeking Exploration and Explore will definitely help you out with your land. Plus cards like Authority of the Consuls Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Ghostly Prison help you out early game to get ahead of everybody. Also I know what I said about the whole creatures entering the battlefield and all that but actually Zendikar Resurgent will be a HUGE help for mana and card draw if you got creature which is my assumption. Also Protean Hulk Tishana, Voice of Thunder and Seal of the Guildpact just for extra support. And plus if you want some just plain fun do Sheoldred, Whispering One, Equilibrium, Rhystic Study, and Unexpected Results. Hope this helps!!!!!

Board the weatherlight is interesting - 1/3 of the deck, exluding artifacts are a hit, but compared to something like Time of Need, board is lackluster. Weatherlight itself, making the effect repeatable, seems pretty decent on the other hand...

Time of Need to snag one of your angel's or gods faster?

Eladamri's Call is a strictly better Altar of Bone. Time of Need is a great tutor for your legendary creatures. Gavony Township is also a great mana sink land card. If you need more card draw that is easier try for Sylvan Library. With your small but still useful life-gain from Selvala you can mitigate the life loss of the library with ease.

Swords to Plowshares and Earthquake are good budget choices for removal...Harsh Mercy can be great in Tribal if you can find a copy.

If you really want to improve your deck I'd add a few tutors to help you find removal when you need it- you can even use tutors to find a Farseek, Cultivate, Sol Ring etc... to ramp your mana up to overcome a slow start or to grab a big dragon to finish off an opponent. I personally always tute for Dragon Tempest - game winner!

If you can afford them Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal are all awesome. If you are on a budget a Diabolic Tutor is better than nothing. Time of Need and Sarkhan's Triumph are also good budget tutors but they will only fetch Dragons for you.

Two artifacts that are in a lot of Dragon Tribal decks are Quicksilver Amulet and Dragon Arch- they are awesome fun for cheating Dragons into play at instant speed. This way you can dodge Counterspells and have blockers come out of nowhere.

Another big improvement would be card draw- Phyrexian Arena is great for helping you get through your deck faster. Tribal Dragons is all about maintaining a fast tempo and overwhelming your opponents asap...extra cards in hand makes this happen.

TepigAggro I initially did have Vizier of Remedies. I opted for Melira, Sylvok Outcast for several reasons. One is Time of Need. It lets me tutor for a combo piece. Time of Need also helps if I pull any legendary creatures from my sideboard to counter any specific decks. Another is the back up combo of Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Phyrexian Unlife. I get that splashing green is inconvienent but I think it makes it quicker if I get the lands right and it makes the deck more redundant.
