Nemesis on GRUUL SMASH!!!

Hey @Eldrazi_lord I've got a few suggestions for you, maybe you can do something with them :P.

The first thing I'd address is the fact that I don't think you have enough dragons to work with your commander. I think you'll need to decide between going with a big creature theme or going with a token theme. Your commander is more conducive to the former option, so my suggestions will be geared towards that. Some dragon additions I would consider are:

Lathliss, Dragon Queen

Savage Ventmaw

Scourge of Valkas

Hellkite Charger

Hellkite Tyrant

Dragonmaster Outcast

Thunderbreak Regent

Skyline Despot

Balefire Dragon

Steel Hellkite

I know I suggested a ton of high mana cost stuff, so here are some ramp suggestions to get you there -

Dragonlord's Servant

Dragonspeaker Shaman

Thran Dynamo

Kodama's Reach

Harrow

Gruul Signet

Worn Powerstone

Commander's Sphere

Hedron Archive

Gilded Lotus

Sakura-Tribe Elder

Somberwald Sage

Urza's Incubator

Next, some removal suggestions:

Beast Within

Subterranean Tremors

Magmaquake

Earthquake

Chaos Warp

Lastly, some utility/misc suggestions:

Crucible of Fire

Dragon Tempest

Frontier Siege

Sarkhan's Triumph

Rhythm of the Wild

Harmonize

Rishkar's Expertise

I have tons of other suggestions, so if you'd like to go in this direction hit me up and I'll keep going.

oh, one last last thing, you probably want to add more lands. like, 5-6 more minimum.

Hellkite Charger was originally in the deck. Must've accidentally cut it.

I hadn't even considered the entry damage spells. Dunno if I'll play em, but I'll definitely try em out.

Hellkite Charger could be a worthy include to grab later in the game if you find yourself ever having 10+ mana available to repeat combat. Also Warstorm Surge and Berserkers' Onslaught are generally pretty nice when you're using beefy creatures!

Since your creatures will often be getting exiled at some point anyway, Thud and Fling (and other similar sacrifice-creature value) could be good. Also, since you're running a tutor on a stick as a commander, you could probably cut a few dragons to add more support cards in the deck since you will usually be able to get whatever creature you need when you need it.

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.

Dragon Broodmother + Dragon Tempest or Scourge of Valkas = heaps of damage each turn cycle.

Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire for spot permanent removal.

Dragonstorm because dragons?

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip is able to flip into a solid planeswalker.

Savage Ventmaw + Hellkite Charger = 1 mana extra combat steps.

Scalelord Reckoner is good against spot removal

Just some of my favorite dragons. Some are a bit $$$$.

I am not at all happy about the reprint of Ixidron, since that card can completely ruin decks that have no way to turn their cards face-up, again.

However, the new version of Volrath is awesome (although 5 mana for a 7/5 is definitely overpowered, in my mind), and I am excited that each deck shall contain a new incarnation of a character from the Weatherlight saga (I personally am hoping to see new incarnations of Barrin, Crovax, and/or Ertai for the final two). I personally believe that he should have been only black and blue, because I do not believe that either his personality or abilities are green, but I suppose that having three colors in his mana cost is what allows his overall cost to be so low.

The reprint of Thespian's Stage is excellent, and I cannot believe that it was never printed in a Commander set before this.

Rayami is almost certainly from Zendikar, judging from her (I shall presume that Rayami is female, form the name) body paint, but from what plane is Grismold?

The artwork on gift of doom is insanely awesome, and I especially appreciate the dark atmosphere that it evokes.

Did Exotic Orchard really need another reprint? Would it really have been that difficult for WotC to have reprinted Reflecting Pool , instead?

However, the reprint of Thran Dynamo is always appreciated, since its price is still high, even after all of its previous reprints (which is evidence of how amazing a card it is), and the same is true for Reliquary Tower , as well.

I also do appreciate the reprint of Opulent Palace , so I hope that WotC reprints both Jungle Shrine and Mystic Monastery in the appropriately-colored decks, as well.

The reprint of Sol Ring was expected, but I really wish that WotC would not reprint it in every Commander deck, since it was once a very rare card, but now is very commonplace.

With dockside extortionist, I see that WotC is continuing the trend of small and inexpensive creatures that shall prove to be supremely annoying, with two earlier examples being Treasure Nabber and Collector Ouphe .

It is nice to see that WotC is reprinting the battle lands, or at least three of them; why could they not have reprinted all of them, or at least have reprinted Canopy Vista , as well? Sungrass Prairie is a nice card, but it has already been reprinted, and Temple Garden , Wooded Bastion , and Canopy Vista are all vastly superior to it.

Mandate of peace will definitely annoy players of aggressive decks that focus on combat; I like the card, but its mana cost is definitely too low; I personally believe that it could have cost and been perfectly balanced.

Thalia’s geistcaller is very nice, but, with only 1 toughness, is far too vulnerable to remain around for a sufficient duration to have a major impact upon a game without major protection; at least she has the ability to protect herself.

Empowered autogenerator could have been nice if it either cost 1 mana less or did not enter the battlefield tapped, because it is far too slow as it currently is; I shall keep Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice in my Atraxa EDH deck and Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus in all my other EDH decks, because they are far faster and can more easily produce large amounts of mana.

With ignite the future, I believe that this is the first time that a card has said “until the end of your next turn,” which is an interesting new ability, but I do hope that WotC uses it sparingly, to prevent it from being abused.

Backdraft hellkite is very nice, with it being a repeatable version of Snapcaster Mage , and I like how it continues the trend of creatures that provide interesting and powerful effects upon attacking, with prominent previous examples being Hellkite Charger and Aurelia, the Warleader . At only 5 mana, that is a really good bargain, in my mind.

Wow! This game finally has a legendary wall! It took twenty-six years, but WotC finally printed such a card! Its effect is nice, but rather weird.

The reprint of Ghostly Prison is very nice, but I am very displeased that none of the reprints have re-used the original art, since I feel that the original art does a better job of conveying the idea of the card’s effect.

Alright, Iona, Shield of Emeria has been banned. :( I did get her out with a hard cast, just once and prevented all my opponents from casting spells, they all folded immediately... I changed about 13 cards out in the deck, removing Dreadbore , Flooded Strand , Hoard-Smelter Dragon , Iona, Mortuary Mire , Overmaster , Reaper from the Abyss , Seething Song , Wind-Scarred Crag . I put in, Reconnaissance , Hellkite Charger , Archfiend of Despair , Blood Crypt , Godless Shrine , Sunbaked Canyon , Winds of Abandon , Bolas's Citadel , Talisman of Indulgence , and Thaumatic Compass  Flip... In process of swapping 3 more cards for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker , Erebos, God of the Dead , as well as Pyroblast
