Creature — Dragon
At the beginning of each upkeep, put a 1/1 red and green Dragon creature token with flying and devour 2 onto the battlefield. (As the token enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. It enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
Dragon Broodmother Discussion

Dragon Broodmother prob. In my deck's current form, I want eggs, but not so many that my deck falls out of control. Again, delicate balance! Having some changelings makes for interesting dynamic, like using Shields of Velis Vel against a wrath, making all your guys eggs, turning a wrath into a board builder.
The best thing about this deck is watching opponents throw all their resources at 0/1 egg tokens, trembling in fear, choosing not to attack just because I HAVE an egg on board! It's really amusing.

bushido_man96 I don't know, I'm not really of fan of this one. I do have to add some board wipes in there and I'll consider the blast but I'm not really a fan.

I have an Ur-Dragon deck and its my fav deck. Dragon Broodmother is awesome. Get one and enjoy the insane dragon swarm!

Smothering Tithe is insane in commander. I suggest finding space for it. Dragon Broodmother is also a dragon that demands attention. It combined with Dromoka, the Eternal / Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury can do 100's of damage with all those pumped up baby dragons. Its just lots of attack triggers which dragons love.

Well noggynogworld, I'm trying to get my average CMC a bit lower -- I have made a couple updates to the deck that I'm currently testing and enjoying. Deck feels good even when I have to claw back from board wipes, as long as I still have some enchantments or something out. One of the things I generally dislike about EDH is the slow build-up and gameplay that takes forever. I play Eldrazi in modern and Elves in Pauper, so speed is important -- I think a CMC in the high 2's or low 3's is going to get that feel for me. I think from here on out I have to be a bit careful, because if I optimize this too much then I should just make it a prossh deck, and I want to keep the uniqueness of the partners. Plus, I kept a hand of 6 lands + Skullclamp and laughed all the way to the bank this weekend, drawing only 2 lands naturally.
Greater Good is still in the sights for the chopping block, but I think it has merit that I haven't found yet. I only seem to draw it super early, which of course is not the way one should draw conclusions but I think the hand filtering alone should be OK to keep it in.
For testing: Recent game, tried to kill the table on turn 6 or 7, had Carrion Feeder and some dudes and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord out plus a Primal Vigor . Announced that I thought I could win, ended up being 1 mana short of re-casting Reyhan after I sac'd her to the Feeder to get 26 counters on him and drained the table for 27. I probably could have sequenced better and got it done, but it was one of the weird games where I never saw any red mana.
Last game played actually I Artifact Mutation 'd for 5 saprolings, then Eternal Witness 'd it for 6 saprolings later and just used Dictate of Erebos to hard-lock everyone out of a board presence until my 6-counter Bloodspore Thrinax and Dragon Broodmother could finish getting me enough dorks and untap with Reyhan, where my opponents scooped but I would have attacked everyone for lethal anyway.
I'll check out your Kresh changes today, too. Glad to know you're still experimenting inside Jund colors :D

Well, I've found that post- Paradox Engine 's ban, a lot of cEDH and/or "high power" players in the area have re-evaluated what they want to get out of the format, or in the cases of a few Sisay/Arcum decks, quit the format entirely, so games have slowed down a bit. Which of course has allowed me to focus more on Good Boi dragons vs speed/curve/go-wide considerations. It's also just a bit more fun to swing with some of these Good Bois than vanilla tokens, but it has made it just a little harder to get the old draw/value engine online. You?
And yes, I did cut Dragonlord Kolaghan again, as Temur Ascendancy remains a primary tutor target and there are at least 2x other haste enablers in the list. I never liked drawing her naturally and never tutored for her, so out she went.
As to Backdraft Hellkite , I'm definitely finding a slot for it. Right now I'm looking at perhaps cutting Dragon Broodmother or Scourge of the Throne for it. What will you cut to slot it in? Dragon Broodmother is a good card, of course, but even with "perfect" mana, her pip requirements have been really hard to satisfy.
Semi-related: As my local meta has slowed down a bit, graveyard value engines have become a problem, as have go-wide token strategies, so I've found a slot for Rakdos Charm for the times when Deathrite Shaman can't effectively be the Yard Police on his own (he's better for 1v1 policing, anyway). The flexibility there has been very good vs, say, Tormod's Crypt , and with Backdraft Hellkite , it's only going to get better.

I Highly recommend Sarkhan, Fireblood as a way of looting and ramping out good dragons early.
One of my personal favorite dragons is Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as a haste enabler and to get back your cards if they get stolen.
Here is a list of other dragons/spells I use in my deck.
Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire for spot permanent removal.
Dragonstorm because dragons?
Scalelord Reckoner is good against spot removal
Just some of my favorite dragons. Some are a bit $$$$.
