Creature — Dragon
You don't lose unspent red mana as steps and phases end.
When Leyline Tyrant dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), you may pay an amount of . When you do, it deals that much damage to target creature, player or planeswalker.

All of these cards can help with ramp in some way:
Atsushi, the Blazing Sky, Crucible of the Spirit Dragon, Dockside Extortionist, Dragonlord's Servant, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Goldspan Dragon, Leyline Tyrant, Rapacious Dragon, Sarkhan, Fireblood and Treasure Vault.
Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Got a few combos for you mate
Infinite red mana to allow infinite combat phases Leyline Tyrant + Mana Geyser + Reiterate + Aggravated Assault Have Leyline tyrant out, play mana geyser, copy with reiterate, buyback the reiterate with that mana, copy again, repeat until you have a stupid amount of red mana. at each main phase after your extra combat phase, pay for the next combat phase. Leyline is important here due to phases. Can also substitute in Jeska's Will for Mana Geyser for the same effect.
Infinite combat phases Aurelia, the Warleader + Helm of the Host Helm of the host copies aurelia at the start of combat, the new aurelia then attacks in the next combat triggering a new combat, repeat
Another infinite combat phase combo Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault equip the sword to a creature that is difficult to block, then it hit, untap all your lands, pay for aggravated assault, repeat

I really like the build. There's quite a few cards I can think of that might be nice in here. Basilisk Collar is cheap alternative to Loxodon Warhammer, Blasphemous Act and Toralf, God of Fury Flip have very interesting reactions with Repercussion and Chandra's Incinerator goes infinite with it, Heartstone decreases the cost of Ashlings ability which can really boost her once it's mixed with mana doublers, Leyline Tyrant would let you hold up mana for Ashling on opponents turns and stockpile it for later use, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seems like a nice choice given your land count and the presence of Vesuva and Thespian's Stage, Walking Atlas, Sword of the Animist and Ghirapur Orrery might help with ramping up for big plays, Stigma Lasher is a bit niche but if you can target it with Chandra's Ignition Lifegain decks are done for the rest of the game. Smoke and Price of Glory are nice stax pieces that shouldn't impact you too heavily given your low creature and instant count. Any one of Mogg Maniac, Brash Taunter and Stuffy Doll should all fit nicely given Ashlings explosive potential. Arcbond is a near guaranteed win against creature heavy decks. The Immortal Sun is a nearly strictly better Staff of Nin. Scrap Mastery might be a nice recovery from late game artifact wipes, or intense mill strategies. Sanctuary Blade is just as good as any of the swords at protecting Ashling and Hammer of Nazahn is nearly essential in such an equipment heavy deck, The Ozolith would help recover if Ashling gets popped before you can blow her up yourself. Harsh Mentor and Spellshock can keep infinite combos out of reach of those pesky combo players. Brass's Bounty and Reiterate can get you to infinite treasures/mana with enough lands in play and of course Ruby Medallion fits in nearly every red deck.

Omniscience_is_life Thanks, good call on both of those! Gatherer had a real hard time returning any results when I tried searching for this effect; even the cards I knew about wouldn't come up when I basically re-wrote the rules text verbatim. Anyway, obviously Leyline Tyrant is not applicable in this deck, and Mana Omnath just won't do quite enough to merit inclusion. Usually any deck I make that includes green winds up being mostly green, but not in this case. Omnath would only retain about 25% of my mana on average. I'll probably be fine with just the 2 cards I'm gonna be running, especially once I get some tutors going. Thanks again though!

Thanks for the comment, DragonWolf420!
This deck was more just for fun, and was a challenge deck I built with a friend to see what the other could come up with given the combo of Leyline Tyrant and Braid of Fire. I'm sure with some tweaking it could be more competitive, but that wasn't my intention with this deck.

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).

Thanks for the response!
I'd love Phyrexian Altar for a handful of my decks but the high price point has kept me from getting one. Hopefully it gets a reprint sometime soon. Su-Chi is on the Reserved List, so the price for that one will probably never come down. Cathodion is as close as we will probably get to it. Ashnod's Altar is a card that I should have a handful of, but have somehow never gotten. Might need to fix that sometime soon because it's a great card.
Bloodfire Colossus is pretty similar in effect to Ryusei, the Falling Star. Ryusei's effect is slightly cheaper, though, as it doesn't require an activation cost and just has to die. Leyline Tyrant, Altar of Dementia and Impulsive Pilferer are also great, but all of mine are in other decks at the moment.
I'm not terribly interested in infinite/game-winning combos as a whole, so I'll have to pass on Thornbite Staff related stuff.
