Said on The dragUr...

Hey sexy_microwave,

Thanks for commenting on my dragon deck earlier, Return Of The Ur-Dragon: A Budget Dragon Primer. I went ahead and added you as one of my references, since I liked your suggestions ;)

Take it with a grain of salt, but I'll comment on your "Need Help" section:

Hellkite Charger vs Scourge of the Throne

I like both these dragons and would personally try to keep both in my deck. This is a tough call for me since Hellkite Charger suffers from a large mana investment to use its ability (sans exceptional cases where you can cheat it in or have Savage Ventmaw out) whereas Scourge of the Throne suffers from its lack of haste and can be a threat magnet. I'd go with Scourge of the Throne in your deck, since you have a decent amount of haste enablers, and ways to cheat dragons, and I seldom get to capitalize on Hellkite Tyrant's ability in my games.

Skyshroud Claim vs Tempt with Discovery

I prefer Skyshroud Claim since it synergizes so well with your shock lands. Furthermore, I (1) don't like to rely on my opponents choices, (2) don't want to help my opponents ramp, and (3) Tempt with Discovery loses value in the late game as more players are knocked out or (4) have enough lands to refuse your offer.

Descendants' Path vs Call to the Kindred

I prefer Descendants' Path, because it has a lower CMC and is more resilient as it isn't creature dependent. The latter can have a higher reward but it isn't worth the risk, especially because our dragons are often removal magnets.

Selvala's Stampede vs Finale of Devastation

This is also a tough choice, because they're both so good. If I had to pick, I would pick Selvala's Stampede, however, because it has a lower CMC and helps rebuild our board, probably our area of greatest weakness. Finale of Devastation is good, but primarily as a tutor and finisher, but it's a big mana investment, and usually isn't nearly as effective without an established board state (and you're probably already winning if you have an established board).

I generally think that you should add tutors to make your deck more consistent and powerful whereas removal can make your deck more resilient if used appropriately (with commander politics!), with the former being more efficient. It depends on what you want your deck to do.
