Here is my first crack at a dragon deck with slumbering dragon in it. Plus the only one I know of like this at the time. The idea is to try and get Slumbering Dragon out turn one and then get Ring of Valkas on it by turn 3. Maybe even more of them on him by turn 4. Turn 5 your trying to get out one of the big dragons to swing for a lot of damage and eventually game. I have won with Slumbering Dragon himself by getting him swinging at turn 5 with 2 ring of valkases and a volt charge proliferating; also the opponent hit me once as well.
I am thinking of adding Moonveil Dragon to this as well, but i can't find my English version of the card only my Japanese version so i would like to wait to add him till I find that. Anyway please give some suggestions on cards to add, and please stay away from the sets that are leaving once return to ravnica comes out. Yes i know i have new pherexia in there, but i'm looking for cards to replace them. Again with that in mind please leave me some ideas for this deck down bellow....
Thank you for checking out my deck!!!!
P.S. I can't find my Acquireboard when i look at this deck so ill post it here...3x Faithless Looting1x Geosurge2x Infernal Plunge2x Lightning Prowess2x Magmaquake2x Red Sun's Zenith2x Shock1x Thundermaw Hellkite1x Volt ChargeI have most of these cards but i need to look through some boxes to find them and I'm a little lazy right now..lol.. This is why there is only 1 faithless looting but i am thinking of putting in 2 or 3 of them maybe even 4. Same with the other good cards in the Acquireboard.
Anyway Thanks Again.. Bye.
I see you are running mono red. Have you put any thought into converting it into a R/G deck? Doing so would allow you to run Increasing Savagery (and dont forget it has flashback for late game) allowing you to actually smash face with slumbering dragon by turn 3 on your own without your opponent attacking you, using a mana ramp such as Farseek and Arbor Elf both of which aren't going out of rotation in October. Also, running R/G allows you to use the traditional Huntmaster of the Fells Flip which is a triple threat putting out a creature, giving you life, and burning your opponent & their creature(s) for 2. Also it lets you eliminate your Volt Charge so you don't have any phyrexia cards nor rely on proliferate.
As for the rest of your deck, im personally not too fond of the discard to draw nor the mono red mana ramp cards like Geosurge but i do like the removal you have chosen such as Pillar of Flame . I think if you tweak your deck a bit and make it R/G you will have more consistency. As for a solution to draw i like the green card Abundant Growth from the Avacyn set, which also helps with the mana curve. If you don't wanna switch the deck idea around i would suggest tossing in Cavern of Souls naming Dragons because nobody wants to waste 7 mana on a dragon for it to get countered by a Mana Leak

I think you should splash green, just for Increasing Savagery . Also I think you will need more land, like 24 or so.
