And Scapeshift (Bit more expansive but worth it). Cast with your commander and 8 lands for example you get 8x 5/5 tokens and with Where Ancients Tread on the field you closeup games. Feel free, maybe you finde some inspiration -> It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time (Omnath-Commander)

Hey what do you think about Gruul Ragebeast now every of your landfalls gets 5 damage to a creature. Scapeshift is broken in this deck, it close up games especially when you have Where Ancients Tread on the field. Also you get a lot of triggers. Rite of the Raging Storm is a good and fun card in this deck. Feel free, maybe you can find some inspiration -> It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time (Omnath-Commander)

itachi45, a previous version of this deck ran those cards actually. What I found was that Mayael's Aria and Mighty Emergence became a "win more" condition rather than helping the consistency. Where Ancients Tread I had taken out because I felt it was too mana expensive. But I haven't tried it with Enlisted Wurm , which could cheat it out. Thanks for the suggestions!

Mayael's Aria seems doable. Also, Where Ancients Tread and Mighty Emergence are pretty fun.

I am a very simple human being: I see a alt-art of Tohru and I click on the deck. Pity you do not have alt-arts of Fafnir, Locula and Khana. Would have loved to see that! I do have a few suggestions for the deck. Wild Pair would be a good addition to the deck. Boltwing Marauder is a pretty good dragon. Crucible of Fire gives a boost to every dragon. Lathliss, Dragon Queen should have an honourable place in this deck. Dragon's Hoard is fun and on theme. Where Ancients Tread is a maybe but it is thematic. You may want to consider Living Death as some recurrsion.

I hope this has helped!

Some suggestions from a fellow Scion of Ur-Dragon EDH player:

Mana rocks that fix colours are your friend in a deck that can run such high mana costs! Stuff like the Ravnica Signets can do a significant amount in fixing your colour bases in the early game. I put all 10 into my deck and I have never regretted it.

You're on the right track with finding means to lower the costs. Things like Urza's Incubator , Urza's Filter , Elvish Piper can add a lot of redundancy to the deck along with the ones you already have in there.

What do the Nicol Bolas walkers do in the deck that are vital to the strategy? Personally I find Sarkhan (The Mad especially) does a lot more when it comes do a dragon heavy deck.

Things like Where Ancients Tread can do a significant amount of damage as well just by you playing your Dragons.

Overall it looks like a decently solid EDH deck.

Hey, great start really well made deck :)

Cards to consider adding:

Gamble and Chaos Warp are fantastic cards because their effects are outside red's color pie. Their staples for red because they're unique and powerful. Chandra, Torch of Defiance is amazing being either ramp, draw or removal. Tectonic Reformation and Endless Atlas can be sources of repeatable draw.

Feldon of the Third Path can be repeatable reanimation with haste of Dragons which is a helpful effect to have since Dragons are going to die. He'll make a token copy of a Dragon which doesn't trigger Lathliss, but that's fine because the tokens trigger any ETB abilities or attack triggers the creature has. Feldon is good to take some advantage of Avaricious Dragon and Dragon Mage . He's also very good with Solemn Simulacrum to create a mini land ramp and draw engine for red.

Cards to consider cutting:

i love marath he was my commander forever for my beast tribal deck but then i decided to go with Samut, Voice of Dissent because it functions a little better for me. i see you have Where Ancients Tread why not Warstorm Surge instead or both but if you only want to run one i would go with warstorm it does not limit you on size. instead of planar cleansing how about Phyrexian Rebirth it's a good wipe and a little cheaper also there is Wrath of God which is great Decimate is good also and Nevinyrral's Disk . A good tutor would be Chord of Calling or Green Sun's Zenith i think chord is a little better though. i see you have primal vigor but what about Parallel Lives and Doubling Season and Anointed Procession are super good but doubling season is a little costly. just some thoughts like the deck here is mine even though i don't run marath anymore Beastiality (beast tribal)
