This combo generates infinite:
- Mana (any color you have available)
- ETB triggers
- Death/LTB triggers
- Have Worldgorger Dragon in your graveyard and Animate Dead in your hand.
- Cast Animate Dead, targeting Worldgorger Dragon.
- Worldgorger Dragon enters the battlefield, causing it to exile all other permanents you control.
- Animate Dead gets exiled along with all your other permanents.
- Animate Dead's LTB ability triggers, sacrificing Worldgorger Dragon.
- All permanents exiled with Worldgorger Dragon enter the battlefield.
- Target Worldgorger Dragon with Animate Dead, have this ability stay on the stack and in response, tap all lands you control and activate any abilities of permanents you control.
- Let everything resolve.
- Repeat steps 3-8.
Note 1: Creatures entering the battlefield from exile have summoning sickness, so you cannot activate tap abilities of creatures that don't have haste.
Note 2: This combo is an unstoppable looping combo. What this means is that this combo will force the game to a draw as it will forever continue its iterations. The only way to stop it is to meet the following criteria:

It'd be interesting to run an enchantress package with the number of enchantments you have. Cut some fat dragons/bad enchantments and artifacts for:
- Argothian Enchantress / Mesa Enchantress / Verduran Enchantress / Enchantress's Presence / (maybe) Femeref Enchantress
- Mirari's Wake or Dictate of Karametra or Heartbeat of Spring (or Zhur-Taa Ancient or Overabundance if you're edgy)
- Burgeoning + Exploration + (maybe) Manabond
Otherwise I'd run the most color-useful signets for fixing and Fellwar Stone. Amulet of Vigor if you really want to keep running taplands. Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are pretty mediocre. Don't know about Herald’s Horn.
Dorks to consider:
On theme and maybe useful:
- Dragonmaster Outcast
- Balefire Dragon
- Dragonlord Dromoka / Dragonlord Silumgar / Dragonlord Ojutai
- Kokusho, the Evening Star
- Mirrorwing Dragon
- Thundermaw Hellkite
- Kargan Dragonlord (just a neat card)

The interaction works like this; Cast Animate Dead targeting Worldgorger, Worldgorger enters play his effect triggers on the stack, response to his effect on the stack float all your mana, his ability resolves and triggers Animate Dead's ability forcing your to sack him, all your cards enter back into play untapped. Repeat that process for however long it takes to fireball someone to death or drop your hand.
Also I get why you put it in there but... Birds is a really bad card in EDH, just think how shitty it feels to draw Birds on turn 7? A better one drop for that slot is gonna be Dragonmaster Outcast, because playing him turn 7 feels great!
Last thing... I get why you are using the Ur-Dragon as your commander but I still think Scion is just strictly better because getting an Ur-Dragon for , or any other dragon for that matter, from your deck is just too good. plus you can always use cards like Dread Return, Animate Dead, or Reanimate to bring those dragons back to life later.
If you want some cool card suggestion take a look at my dragon deck;

ScrOuch: Forbidden Orchard is fine when you're ready to end the game, but can be hindering in the early stages of the game. Remember, + is an infinite. It doesn't matter how many sources of or I have, I'll still have an endless supply of mana to pump into Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius.

From one Breya deck to another, good stuff!
One thing I'd recommend is to maybe think about shaving off the Scrylands. You don't need to be cray with the Revised Duallies, but even doubling up on some basics just increases that acceleration. Unless you'd prefer Amulet of Vigor to help with that.
Did you think about running the + combo? You'd be able to go off in record time, and use that mana to cast and sacrifice Breya, bolting the table for days.

I understand what you mean. It's definitely a good combo. I decided to add in + after playing the deck last night.
I activated SDT and they were the first two cards on top, so I put Dragon back on the very top. Drew with Top. Activated Daretti's +2 and pitched Dragon and proceeded to combo with Breya on board. This deck is quickly becoming one of my faves.

n0bunga/KailDaemon: One thing to note about the + combo is that with just those two, the game would end in a draw, but since we can respond to the exile trigger by sacrificing the tokens to deal damage, you technically don't need to have another creature in the graveyard as you are advancing the game state by changing life totals.

So I'm incorrect in the specific example, but correct in that all artifacts are not targets of the controller's spells and abilities...You may as well run Padeem, Consul of Innovation if you want to negate that drawback of hindering your own cards in any capacity.
My suggestion is to make better use of artifacts/permanents going to the grave. Look into more recursion and GY manipulation tactics outside of just the Nim combo. Disciple of the Vault naturally does something with all these tokens/Breya being sacrificed. Or, if you want to see deckbuilds that JumboCommander, KailDaemon or myself have done with regards to Breya, feel free for more inspiration.
+ also works in this deck. You'd just need to make sure to have another creature in the GY to break the loop.
