LeaPlath I thought something like a tribal reanimator. I didn't see, till now, how buried alive can improve this. But really appreciate the sugestion.

First of all, you need fetchlands to play Brainstorm. The key part of brainstorm is it lets you see so much more of your deck, but you need shuffle effects for it, otherwise you are going 3 cards deeper, but having to put the worst cards back, then draw them.
Victimize is just bad, because they can just bolt your creature, and you get nothing. Instead, play 4 copies of Life/Death. The life part doesn't matter. The Death part is a 2 mana reanimate. You want 12 reanimation spells.
For dragons, I think better options exist. The dragons you currently have are low impact, slow, or easily removed. Dragonlord Dromoka is big, lets you race stuff, makes your next reanimation as needed safe, and is quite impactful. Dragonlord Kolaghan is a big hasty 6 damage that changes the way your opponent plays slightly. Hellkite Overlord, big, fast, can regenerate, lots of damage.
For your sideboard, Duress is good, but there are better options for the other slots. For example, there are no hexproof creatures played in legacy for Glaring Spotlight. There is one with shroud, but it is a 3/3 and you are generally outclassing it. The unblockable for 4 mana over 2 turns also isn't relevant because you outclass most stuff in the air.

What do you think about Careful Study?
I never realize how Victimize is just awlful. I'll fix this!
On the dragons, the "chosen" ones was basically because i have them and they always seemed satisfactory to me...Despite that, i totally agree with the sugestions based on what you said: " better options exist". I played with the suggested creatures and was totally surprised!
Really appreciate the help!

And seems like that with the two dragonlords, my Balefire Dragon becomes even more scary.
