At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card that shares a creature type with a creature you control, you can cast this card without paying its mana cost. Otherwise, put it at the bottom of your library.

Title says it all, my friends! If you could pick FIVE cards for a Secret Lair, what would they be??
- inb4 moxen
- inb4 op can't inb4
Sure we could all say Power 9 cards or EDH $50+ staples, but where's the fun in that? Put your thinking caps on and design a Secret Lair you'd absolutely love to see printed. And yeah, sure if it's a set with five original dual lands I guess that's fine, but it's a bit drab and boring.
- MINE! :D
Name: Cheaters Always Win
I'm not picking Open the Vaults because we aren't wanting to help our opponents out ;)
And yeah sure, I mean I could do five WUBRG cards. Jodah, Morophon, Golos, Sisay and Ur-Dragon. But again, that's a pretty dang costly SL and this was meant to be fun. I picked cards that I enjoy, not cards the community would rather see.

E-Witness is gold. Regrowth is also pretty nice. Swan Song kind of sucks in the fact that it gives them a token that can actually block your big flying lizards. A much better card to run would be Silumgar's Scorn which will basically be Counterspell in your deck, or you could just run Counterspell as well. Icon of Ancestry, Tooth and Nail, and Worldly Tutor are all really strong.
For tutoring/filtering Winding Way is also pretty good, especially if you can find a way to cast it multiple times. That brings me to a pretty fun combo with it and other yard fillers:
As for tribal support/buffs I found these to be the best for dragons:
- Might of the Nephilim can smoke someone if played on your commander
- Mana Echoes can ramp you pretty fast if you are running lower curve dragons especially with Ur's ability
- Mudslide can win you a game flat out if you aren't fighting an opposing flier deck
- Shared Animosity gets out of control pretty fast especially if you have a way of making dragon tokens and comboing with Kindred Charge and Scourge of the Throne for additional combat steps
- Shared Triumph and Favorable Winds are much cheaper CMC anthems and Rally of Wings is a really fun combat trick
- Cover of Darkness cangive all your dragons fear for 2 (I rarely run this since they have flying anyways...)
- Lurking Predators and Descendants' Path are just extreme value
- Kindred Discovery can help you filter through your deck faster
- Kindred Summons will net you a game-ending amount of dragons directly onto the field by the time you have 7 mana to spare on an instant
- Kindred Dominance is basically like having another copy of Crux of Fate and Seismic Rupture can keep the field clear of weenies while not harming your dragons at all
- Rishkar's Expertise doubles as a deck filter and a put onto battlefield card

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

What do you think about Descendants' Path for this? It's something I've been testing out in my Modern Sliver deck.

Your deck seems pretty awesome already and you definitely have the dragons down. There are a few cards I would consider including. Bower Passage is a great way to ensure that your dragons get through for damage. I also would consider replacing Court of Bounty with Descendants' Path , since it is cheaper and more consistent. The final thing I would add is removal. You don't need removal, it really depends on your playgroup and whether you'd rather just focus on dragons, but it would make your deck stronger. Cards like Assassin's Trophy , Swords to Plowshares , and Chaos Warp are great examples.
