If you would lose unspent mana, that mana becomes colourless instead.

Changes, 18 Jan 2022: -1 Upwelling, +1 War Tax. After some consideration, I think the "mana doesn't empty" effect is something I'm gonna want to keep to myself, rather than give the whole table. So, after acquiring a copy of War Tax, essentially Rite of Replication is taking Upwelling's slot. That is definitely an effect I'm going to want, so I'm probably gonna try to find a slot for Horizon Stone in the near future as well. As far as I know, that and Kruphix, God of Horizons are the only cards that carry that effect, so I'm also probably gonna find some slots for various tutors (Namely Enlightened, Idyllic, and Worldly) that can find those cards - not to mention a variety of other things I might want, depending on game situation - in the near future.

It wouldn't let me edit my last post for some reason...
Trying out Atarka as commander wouldn't require any additional changes, so I'd recommend doing that first. Just switch Atarka and Radha's places and see if Atarka helps the deck run smoother or if you enjoy being able to have double-strike dragons more often. If so, great! If not... that's fine, too!
I'd definitely recommend checking out Klauth, though. He's a big dragon, has haste and can ramp out stupid amounts of mana depending on the power of your other creatures, which, since you have a lot of big dragons, should be easy! If you do like the idea of Klauth as commander, I'd also recommend checking out Horizon Stone as another way to keep any leftover mana that Klauth generated (like Leyline Tyrant, which is already in the deck).

Hey, good version on a low budget and nice Gnawbone + Charger combo. If you're making 729 mana then get a Comet Storm in here!
Unnatural Growth can repeatedly at combat, before you attack, double the power/toughness of Klauth and all other Dragons you control. This effect can make a ton more mana, make your Dragon army much more dangerous and 8/8 Klauth is much more difficult for an opponent to favorably block. Dragon's Hoard is an upgrade for a ramp source since it has interaction with Dragons to be repeatable draw.
Anger is a good card and a wanted effect especially when you can get it for paying no mana. You don't want to ever cast Anger though instead you want to discard it or get into your graveyard other ways. Currently there's no way here to discard Anger unless you have 8 or more cards at your Cleanup step. Consider adding some loot that can discard Anger?
- Faithless Looting: can do it twice because of flashback.
- Seize the Spoils
- Unexpected Windfall
- Thrill of Possibility
By adding loot you also add more draw and two of these spells also create ramp from treasures. Anger is the only haste enabler here and that effect is wanted more with Dragons especially Gnawbone. Consider more haste enablers?
Some Dragon tutors can help to cast your powerful Dragons when you have the mana from Klauth. Consider some Dragon tutors?
Loot goes with any card recursion and green is excellent at it. Consider some card recursion?
Currently there's no card recursion here and that's a strength of green which other colors don't have as much access too. You're stuff is going to die in a game of Commander and being able to get it back is helpful especially when you can make a lot of mana. Seasons Past is a way to use a lot of mana to recur cards and cast all of them. Past is great with Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker to draw lots of cards.
Some cards to consider cutting are some of the lesser Dragons since there's several Dragons here that are miles ahead in power. By adding draw and tutors in place of some of the lesser Dragons then you have more chances to draw the better Dragons or get them directly into your hand.
- Decree of Savagery
- Neverwinter Hydra
- Taurean Mauler
- Skyship Stalker
- Demanding Dragon
- Hoard-Smelter Dragon
- Shivan Hellkite
- Dragon Throne of Tarkir
- Bogardan Hellkite
- Commander's Sphere
- 1x Forest
Mana created by Klauth can't be used to pay for activation costs, even if that mana is turned into colorless by Horizon Stone it still has the restriction of only being able to be used to cast spells. Because of this Dragons who the reason you're playing them is because they have an activated ability are less good then ones who give you value when they ETB or attack.
Good luck with your deck.

You can ramp quite a bit using artifacts, but you have so many X spells for a Boros deck! They also don't do anything with freebies like Wildfire Eternal (or copy spells, you're pretty unlikely to hit critical mana where they double effectively), so pick a couple good ones and call it a day. Drop a few of the "whenever damage is dealt to this creature, do stuff" like Stormwild Capridor and Truefire Captain... you have enough hoops to jump through as is. Ritual of Rejuvenation, Volcanic Vision, and Horizon Stone need to go. Consider Battlefield Forge and Talisman of Conviction! You'll have life to spare. Another thing. You have all of these "deal a bunch of damage to all creatures" effects, which is great, but you also have a bunch of "prevent noncombat damage that would be dealt to your creatures" effects too, which sorta defeats the purpose of all of your "whenever damage is dealt to this creature, do stuff" creatures. PLEASE listen when I say: pick a strategy and lean into it!

KayneMarco I'm kind of happy where the brew is at now but thanks for the suggestions! Neheb, the Eternal was in the original draft with Savage Ventmaw but after some goldfishing they really were just win more cards. I had actually never heard of Sakiko, Mother of Summer what a neat card its basically a snake Old Gnawbone. I love elves but I feel as though Grand Warlord Radha falls a tad short here; she's probably better at the helm of her own deck with low to the ground aggro creatures and big splashy pay offs. Omnath, Locus of Mana is in the same boat - I love angry little green koolaid man but he's better at the helm of his own deck. I had high hopes for Leyline Tyrant I thought the ability is really cool but it's just not impactful enough unless you're already ahead. Also, I noticed most of the suggestions were like Horizon Stone; while storing mana for a spell is great and all this deck cannot really do it in a sneaky way like kurphix, we swing and cast our pay off if we have to bank we've already lost.

I have a couple suggestions. If you're looking for one big turn of storming Aeve I'd consider Parallel Lives , Primal Vigor , Horizon Stone , and Doubling Cube . You might also consider going for big mana with Incubation Druid and Castle Garenbrig . Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can go infinite with a Temur Sabertooth if she has haste, but without it it's just value to be able to bounce your original copy of your commander and recast it on a later turn and to get more mana and tons of draws as Selvala will see the steady progression of each Aeve coming in slightly bigger than the one before. You may also consider Realmwalker and Maskwood Nexus for additional tribal value.

Using the cards you mentioned as examples:
Mana Reflection will not allow for the additional mana to be used on anything but creature spells/abilities, because the mana produced is still being produced by Garenbrig itself.
Heartbeat of Spring , however, allows you as the player to add the mana, meaning it isn't tied to the Castle. You may spend that mana on anything.
Doubling Cube , similarly to the Heartbeat, adds the mana independently of Castle Garenbrig--you may spend that additional mana on anything (this card was, incidentally, the basis for a legacy deck that utilized Jeweled Lotus ).
Horizon Stone simply retains the mana, it doesn't change its properties. Therefore, that mana may only be spent on creature spells/abilities. The same is true for Omnath.
