You should add a Minion of the Mighty

Very creative and original deck! Have you considered adding any cards that might help you find Minion of the Mighty, such as Adventurous Impulse?

You know what Housegheist? This deck does need more ramp and I'm coming around to the idea of adding Scaled Nurturer as a cute lil dragon mana dork. As for Return of the Wildspeaker and Rishkar's Expertise, I like them a lot and was running them in my Atarka build, but my draw suite is decent and I'm not 100% certain what I'd cut to make room for them.

Minion of the Mighty! Definitely a funny one and certainly a different way of sneaking out another dragon. I like it, just uncertain if it makes the cut.

Speaking of cuts, after playing some games I've gotten a better feel for what the deck needs (more ramp, more early game interaction) and also what hasn't been working so well. I'll be doing a pretty big overhaul in the near future.

My thought with Korlessa, Scale Singer (1/4 Body for 2 cmc!) and the Scaled Nurturer was, that it's improtant to have some creatures out. Korlessa let you cast your Dragons from top of library which is kind of card potential. The nurturer fits into your 2cmc ramp-theme...

And it don't hurt to draw them lately since Miirym would create copy of them both unlike the rocks.

Any thoughts on Return of the Wildspeaker or Rishkar's Expertise? Oh, Minion of the Mighty could be a funny one

I have been working on this deck too. Mana is indeed the problem but once you get going, you very quickly wipe out most people.

I personally think you can work in 1 of 2 ways for this deck.
One of them is mana ramp which is what I see your trying to work with. The other way is cheat in dragons!

Alaundo the Seer is a way to help you get out some high cost dragons however is a bit slow build up.

Minion of the Mighty is perfect for this deck as it will help you at least cheat in 1 dragon and with your commander that 1 becomes 2!

Monster Manual and Quicksilver Amulet are great helpers as well.

Heirloom Blade can help keep dragons in your hand so the fun never stops.

Other notable additions are

Molten Echoes for give you an extra monster with haste which also works great with Minion of the Mighty. Thanks to your commander you will get 3 dragons for 1 turn, 1 has haste but is gone at end of turn. Alternatively just add an enchantment that provides haste so both your original cast dragon and his token can both attack right away.

Skanos Dragonheart is a crazy powerful addition that can be slightly lower cost then some dragons.

Old Gnawbone and Goldspan Dragon and absolute powerhouses if you can afford them.

To help deal with pesky commanders out there I like to always include at least one nullifying enchantment such as Lignify

Hi @lhetrick13 Thank you very much for the comment, the upvote and the hint. Minion of the Mighty is indeed interesting. But probably better for my dragon commander :) For this deck there are not enough synergies; he cannot gain haste and will be effective only at a time when dragons drop anyway, then potentially drawing removal... I struggled a long time to find the right deck for Zirilan of the Claw and still am... I probably get the minion anyway though :) Thanks

As a lover of anything "tribal", I really like the look of this and it give me some ideas for my own "tribal" deck as I have not done dragons yet. If I may offer up a suggestion, Minion of the Mighty might be a good addition. If not dealt with, he would allow you to pull on of those expensive dragons straight from you hand to the battlefield. Hopefully that is helpful!

Ok here is my take on the budget side. TLDR: Land total and Ramp increased. A lot of subpar removal taken out, and better ones put in. Some cheaper dragons/shapeshifters added to smooth out curve and provide cheap dragon drops for commander ability. Most importantly is added some value for getting extra dragons from cards, either by creating tokens or playing them for free from hand/deck. Added in 3 additional wincons similar to Terror of the Peaks to make it easier to win just by populating board and swinging in. Note that the wincons also can serve as creature removal, which is why so many of the outs are instant/sorcery removals
