As long as Foriysian Totem is a creature, it can block an additional creature.

some other dragons you might consider:
Nesting Dragon - Pricey, but gives decent return for otherwise dead draws late game
Steel Hellkite - colorless enchantment removal. often overlooked
Territorial Hellkite - 6/5 flying haste for 4. aim is a bit wonky, but still a solid card for its cost
fun deck, keep us posted with how it does!

I'm not a big fan of those types of boardwipes in a deck like this. I could maybe see them making it in if my meta got more enchantment heavy. Unstable Obelisk would be my #1 pick for enchantment removal.

I love Rakdos land destruction. Let me give you some suggestions!
Fulminator Mage because its just a good card.
Foriysian Totem gives you landless mana and a wincon
Shivan Wumpus For a finisher/beater when you have land advantage and they cant afford to sac any more lands
Simian Spirit Guide to quickly destroy your opponents lands
edit: forgot Crumble to Dust - high CMC but is decent in modern because of all the nonbasic lands

I see what you're going for, and I appreciate it. Here's some thoughts I had that might help:
First off, Chaos Warp is just really good removal, which this deck lacks at the moment.
As nice as Foriysian Totem is as a mana rock/blocker, I think Silent Arbiter would be a better option. It's great for slowing down the game when you need to slow it down, and you can just pop it with one of your artifact destroyers when it's your turn to go in.
If you can afford it, I'd cut Sokenzan Spellblade and replace it with Daretti, Scrap Savant. You have enough artifacts that I think it would be worth the slot. Hell, with the prevalence of artifacts, you could even run Hellkite Tyrant as a surprise, cheeky wincon for when you've not been able to properly set up your wall of attackers.
As amazing as Dualcaster Mage is, idk if he runs enough Instants/Sorceries for it to be worth it. Like yeah you can copy Starstorm or Chain Reaction for the big boy damage, but you could produce a similar result (with repetition even) by running Pyromancer's Goggles. Like yeah you could copy Scour from Existence or Wild Swing as well, but idk.
In my opinion, Dormant Volcano is always a bad land. Mathematically, the benefit of DV is the same as if you ran another basic land. However, I think this deck is actively hurt by its inclusion. You use Snow-Covered Mountain for triggering so many different effects like Goblin Charbelcher and Glacial Crevasses so having to sacrifice one for a land that doesn't even come in untapped is just not good.
Overall, solid list! I like the strategy.

Combo: Basilisk Collar combos with Furnace of Rath and Heartless Hidetsugu for insta-killing everyone. Life gain on other creatures is helpful. Library of Leng is awesome with wheel effects, it lets you keep the cards you want!
Card Advantage: Sunbird's Invocation provides needed card advantage for monoreds. Etali, Primal Storm, Loreseeker's Stone, Seer's Sundial, Arch of Orazca, Sea Gate Wreckage, Magus of the Wheel, Memory Jar, Gamble, Mizzix's MasteryI really think Wheel of Fortune is worth it.
Ramp: Thran Dynamo, Worn Powerstone, Ancient Tomb, Sisay's Ring, Crystal Vein, Dreamstone Hedron, Foriysian Totem, Gauntlet of Power, Gilded Lotus, Koth of the Hammer, maybe Mana Flare on the big turn/finisher

Did you think about man-lands and man-a rocks? Theyre really great with all the wrath effects since they can crew immediately after wiping the board. I would suggest Foriysian Totem, Mutavault, Mishra's Factory, Guardian Idol, Thunder Totem, Ghitu Encampment and Dread Statuary. Also the new Wakening Sun's Avatar seems like an option. Im trying out some protection like Indomitable Archangel and Leonin Abunas as well and havent been disappointed yet.

Also Vedalken Engineer for specialized ramp. Not sure if you'd count the Monuments from Amonkhet?

I think the biggest problem with your deck is that your own Supreme Verdict will hit you hard.
If you are on a budget, AEtherling is the card for your deck. It avoids a bunch of stuff, it can become unblockable and you can pump it for the win. Another options for a budget deck: Faerie Conclave, Ojutai Monument, Glint Hawk Idol, Foriysian Totem, Azorius Keyrune, Chimeric Staff
