As this enters the battlefield, you may have it become a copy of any creature on the battlefield until end of turn, except it has haste.

Hellkite Charger could replace Skanos Dragonheart? Both these Dragons want to attack to trigger abilities, but Skanos needs other Dragons to make it good, Charger doesn't. Skanos can't pump itself and doesn't have evasion, Charger can be part of a combo Skanos can't. Thrakkus the Butcher is a better five drop Dragon with trample who pumps itself as well as all other Dragons you control.
There's another combo you could add that creates infinite Dragons with Astral Dragon and the enabler Cursed Mirror provides a wincon, haste to attack. Could of course have other wincons: Scourge of Valkas, Dragon Tempest or Warstorm Surge. Mirror is a good card, you wouldn't just be adding it for the combo, it's a mana rock that if it becomes a Dragon when it enters then Miirym can copy it.
When you control Cursed Mirror that's not a creature have Astral Dragon enter and copy Mirror. The Mirror tokens then enter as Astral and copy original Mirror that's not a creature and repeat. This creates a loop of Astral and Mirror making copies of each other, each copy of Mirror is a 4/4 Astral Dragon with haste. To break the loop stop copying Mirror with Astral, copy something else.
Sarkhan Unbroken would be another fine upgrade, but not when on a budget. $25 for a nonDragon creature card when on a budget seems not a good use of funds. For $25 you could improve the manabase with many land upgrades Reflecting Pool, more Pain lands (Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef), some Bond lands (Spire Garden), some Filter lands (Flooded Grove) or some Check lands (Sulfur Falls, Rootbound Crag). In my opinion when on a budget allocating some of the budget for good lands is more important than adding flashy cards such as Sarkhan.
Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is less powerful than Sarkhan, but it's also less than $2. Kiora can still do much work as another Temur Ascendancy draw effect as well as give you 7 turns of ramp that can untap any permanent including Sol Ring or an Orb.
Shamanic Revelation could be a cut for some lower mana cost draw since you're more likely to have a higher power Dragon then that same number of Dragon creatures. That's what makes Return of the Wildspeaker and Rishkar's Expertise good draw with Dragons is they have high power. Revelation is better when playing little tribal creatures such as Elves which tend to have quantity of creatures rather than single creature with high power.

@ Vlasiax Maybe Savage Ventmaw has a place in the deck, but I'm not sure about Aggravated Assault. The combo is good, but having to make room for them might be an issue, and off theme a bit. I'll leave that to Forkbeard.
I have a Sylvan Library, but actually took it out of my other dragon deck. No doubt it's strong, but with some already synergistic card draw available already, it felt like a "win more" card for my particular deck. I don't have a mana crypt, but if I did I don't think I'd use it, but that's just more of me keeping the power level of my deck in check.

Ha, that's definitely a funny interaction to watch out for Slash. I shall take heed! I've had great success with Astral Dragon so far - even just copying a mana rock is decent value (the dream is Cursed Mirror but I haven't been able to make that happen yet). Super cool card & I want a playmat of that gorgeous art.

Nice list and really helpful if you start with a new color combination for the first time.
Some green cards to edit:
Maybe you have to sort the artifacts a bit more (1 color, 2 colors, etc.)

Tempt with Vengeance is a good X spell. Opponents will almost never copy it.
Cursed Mirror is a good value mana rock for red.
Check out my deck you can see my mana for mono red. Hyperbolic Genesis Chamber Norin

Hey, well done meshing all these precons into one deck, nice budget version of Breya.
Some cards that are in the precons to consider adding that are upgrades:
Hart is very slow ramp. Spine is more mana, but it can target any permanent and can be repeatable, good with artifact reanimation/recursion.
- Baleful Strix --> Artificer's Epiphany
- Shimmer Myr --> Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer
- Silas Renn, Seeker Adept --> Armory Automaton
- Sharuum the Hegemon --> Myr Retriever
- Swiftfoot Boots --> Loxodon Warhammer
Strix is excellent value artifact creature for only two mana. Flash for artifacts is a powerful effect with Breya. You don't have enough good equipment to make Automaton worth it. The problem is you don't own or control equipment you take from opponents meaning you can't sac it with Breya or get the equipment player effects (do combat damage. etc.). Sharuum is more mana, but can reanimate any artifact in your graveyard. Repeatable protection for Breya as well as haste for big creatures is better than what Warhammer does.
- Treasure Nabber --> Chief of the Foundry
Nabber is powerful repeatable effect in multiplayer Commander because just about all opponent's decks will have mana rocks. Steal opponents mana rocks, use them on your turn and then sac them with Breya.
- Cursed Mirror --> Vessel of Endless Rest
Mirror is good in multiplayer Commander especially with artifact reanimation/recursion.
Good luck with your deck.

Welcome to EDH! My first Magic deck was a Boros deck, so it has a special place in my heart. <3
Additionally, I would consider removing most of the Mentor cards and replacing them with more immediately impactful cards. Mentor takes a while to build up and each mentor creature only buffs one other creature at a time, meaning it usually takes a few turns to get enough out if it to secure the win. If this is a token deck, I would recommend adding some more token produced as well, such as Hanweir Garrison Meld and Leonin Warleader.
Also, you have very little card draw and ramp. My recommendation is to have at least 8 sources of card draw and 8 sources of ramp. Some ramp I would suggest is: Boros Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Mind Stone, Smothering Tithe, Keeper of the Accord, and maybe Cursed Mirror or Professional Face-Breaker. Some card draw I would suggest is: Esper Sentinel, Battle Angels of Tyr, Court of Grace, Jeska's Will, and Laelia, the Blade Reforged.
I highly recommend checking out sites like edhrec.com for deckbuilding advice, as well as the Command Zone on YouTube:
I hope this has been helpful!
