Hellkite Charger Discussion

Have you considered replacing the abrades with Lightning Bolt yourself?
Icefall Regent seems nice, neutralizing a creature and requiring the opponent to spend extra mana to get rid of it and get their creature back. Here are some other card suggestions I have:
Dragonlord's Servant : Pretty straightforward, helps ramp into all your dragons.
Demanding Dragon : I think this is a good contender for adult gold dragon's spot, since they both have immediate board impact but this one's a 5/5 instead of a 4/3. (adult gold dragon dies to Dragon's Rage Channeler ;-;)
Stormbreath Dragon : Maybe 1-2 in sb, hoses white decks
Thundermaw Hellkite : Classic dragon powerhouse. Might be better in the sideboard, but still great against any deck with flying creatures. Beats up fairies, good against spirits, and delver+drc+murktide decks.
Terror of the Peaks : A great card, but might not be as good here since it's pretty slow and has no immediate board impact. Overpriced as well.
Dragon Tempest : Also helps speed up your gameplan by making all your dragons hasty, and wipes the opponents board at the same time.

I always find that monored EDH decks tend to have an issue getting enough cards in hand. I could see that being an issue here, especially with the "free" play abilities you have in! Some things that could help are cards like
Cavalier of Flame
Mask of Memory
, Neheb, Dreadhoard Champion, and
Some non-creature cards that might have good synergy for the deck are Commander's Plate , Skullclamp , Whispersilk Cloak , Worldslayer , Embercleave , Mirage Mirror , Aggravated Assault , Gratuitous Violence , Chaosphere , and Sorrow's Path .
Some other creatures that could help are Breaker of Armies , Void Winnower , Marton Stromgald , Urabrask the Hidden , Legion Loyalist , Hellkite Charger , Flamerush Rider , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Soulbright Flamekin , and Siege Dragon . Also, any eldrazi if you wanna be that mean, especially the original set with annihilator.
The sacrifice clause on Purphoros can also have some fun opportunity, especially with cards like Blood Aspirant , Mycosynth Wellspring , and Ancient Stone Idol .
Oh! And if you do end up with that many mountains, Jaws of Stone , Landslide , Spawn of Thraxes , and Spire Barrage , could all be ridiculously powerful late-game!

I recommend adding some more early game ramp creatures or spells, probably as replacements for the Dragon Egg s and the risky Nikya of the Old Ways . More Dragonlord's Servant are totally fine, but I could also see Voyaging Satyr working to untap Gruul Turf for big mana or Zhur-Taa Druid bridging the gap between acceleration and aggression. On the spell side of things, some good old Rampant Growth effects could make Dragonmaster Outcast a nasty threat. Just looking at the cards you already have, I think more copies of Thunderbreak Regent , Atarka, World Render , and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma wouldn't hurt. Another option if you don't mind infinite combos is upping the count of Savage Ventmaw and Grand Warlord Radha so you can run Hellkite Charger for endless combat phases.
I'll also list some possible upgrades and sidegrades based on my own experience playing with and against dragons. Dragon Tempest is nearly a direct upgrade for Impact Tremors in dragons and Scourge of Valkas is also decent. Draconic Roar seems like it would be better than Magma Jet and/or Jaya's Greeting most of the time. Spit Flame might be even better if targets tend to have 4 toughness. Flying destruction feels unnecessary here, but I'd prefer something cheaper than Pinion Feast like the flexible Broken Wings regardless. Frontier Siege might be better than Atarka Monument if you need more mana or removal. Crucible of Fire could replace Sight of the Scalelords or Dragon Throne of Tarkir , depending on how much power you need. Sarkhan, Fireblood can be a rummager, accelerant, and bomb in the world you keep him alive. Even with so many legendaries, I still prefer Elvish Piper to Thran Temporal Gateway here. A final card that I'm not sure on is the new Draconic Intervention . Seems like it could be an interesting sweeper follow-up to a Descent of the Dragons that turns all your dorks into immune dragons. That is fairly slow though.
Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your deck!

Wow I did not really think much about Hellkite Charger . I always thought it was too mana hungry in general to pull off anything crazy. Additionally, I thought it was weak and with Xenagos being capable of only buffing 1 creature at a time, I wasn't so sure how to make it work. With that being said, 6 total combat steps is very important to my deck so I will have to try and add in that dragon. Thanks for the much needed advice! I need to go back to the drawing boards soon and consider these options.
