Hey, you're welcome, nice changes.

Vigor prevents enrage from happening since it prevents damage dealt to Vron. It's a replacement effect which replaces the damage that is dealt with +1/+1 counters since damage isn't dealt enrage doesn't trigger. Rite of Passage works how you want with Vron because it doesn't prevent damage, but also puts a +1/+1 counter when damage is dealt.

Goblin Bombardment could replace many different cards simply because it's a win condition with Vron that's only two mana. Bombardment is also another card to infinite combo with Polyraptor and it can prevent ending the game in a draw with Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor. Anara, Wolvid Familiar could replace Cacophodon. Is Cacophodon part of a combo that I'm not seeing? Crop Rotation could replace Steel Wall.

Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker are in the precon and they can draw a lot of cards because Vron starts at 5 power. Return being an instant can be cast not on your turn to fill your hand of cards to choose from to cast on your next turn. These spells are excellent with Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient and Old Gnawbone who can make a ton of mana to cast all the cards you draw.

Expertise and Return are actually better spells here than Kindred Summons because with Vron no matter what you're drawing at least 5 cards. Summons requires that you control many Dragons to get the same amount of value. One advantage of Summons is instant speed to potentially reveal both Gnawbone + Charger, cheating them onto the battlefield, but without a way to arrange these Dragons to the top of your library that will be rare.

Sword of Hours is in the precon and it does a lot with Vron since it's a source of repeatable die roll and a way to make Vron bigger with +1/+1 counters. Some budget lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands: Naya Panorama, Jund Panorama, Bonders' Enclave, Rogue's Passage.


Some changes to consider:

Looks good! These might interest you: Arcbond, Gideon's Sacrifice, Martyrdom, Sunforger, Saving Grace, Repercussion, Chandra's Ignition, Mogg Maniac, Spiteful Sliver, Truefire Captain, Coalhauler Swine, Vigor, Polyraptor, Rite of Passage, Cacophodon, Sporeweb Weaver.

Also I must disagree with gavriel1136 regarding Blazing Sunsteel since it can deal infinite damage with Stuffy Doll or an indestructible reckoner-type creature.

One of my favorite cards for guys like Gishnath is Pollenbright Wings. Flying dinos and a bajillion blockers. Fire Ants is great with all that Enrage and combos really well with Cacophodon

Omniscience_is_life so am I correct in that Cacophodon equipped with Darksteel Plate is used with Power of Fire enchanting any of the untap payoffs?

I really like Vizier of Deferment as a way to keep a huge pumped-up creature off your face for a turn, and it can block a second as well. Traveler's Amulet is a good turn-one play in 3+ color decks, in my opinion, just decent very cheap syncing Justice Strike is more often than not 2 mana removal, which is great in Boros/budget decks Cacophodon enables ALL OF the combos. Love that card.
