Realistically, I'd probably second the hexproof equipment.

Maybe Thunderbreak Regent, and/or Niv-Mizzet, Parun are worth a look? Maybe not as effective protection as the others, but they are synergistic dragons.

Hey, you're welcome.

Sure, an Ancient Dragon would fit, but I don't think Ancient Bronze Dragon or all the other Ancient Dragons are worth their price. All are wildly overpriced since their power relies on randomness of the die. Yes, you could roll a 20, but you could also roll a 1. For the price of one Ancient Dragon you could instead make quite a few card upgrades.

A lower price Dragon to consider adding is Hellkite Charger because it's an infinite attack combo with Savage Ventmaw. Miirym creates a copy of Ventmaw, then two attacking Ventmaws + Charger can infinite trigger Charger as long as all three Dragons can keep attacking. Dragons like to attack, an infinite attack combo as wincon helps.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun is really good in multiplayer Commander and when you control two Niv then it can be a huge advantage. Irenicus's Vile Duplication is new card in Dominaria United and it's powerful for less than $3. Make a token copy of Miirym or any other Dragon you control.

Bigsplashy on Imoti in a Miirym deck

I'm in the process of building a Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm deck, but I'd like some advice. Does Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty fit in, or does it just waste a spot another dragon could take? My thought is that that you cast a 6 cmc card like Niv-Mizzet, Parun copy it, cascade into Something like Rapacious Dragon, copy it, and cascade into something like Dragonborn Champion and copy it. 6 dragons for 6 mana in a dream scenario. But is Imoti reliable enough for the deck, or is she better replaced with another copyable dragon?

Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a nice inclusion. For me Blistercoil Weird and Delver of Secrets  Flip feels underwhelming in edh you can swap them for some more draw or since you like cipher even Triton Shorestalker and Mist-Cloaked Herald.

Since you asked for card draw suggestions the main staples are X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith,Pull from Tomorrow, 4 CMC type Fact or Fiction / Steam Augury or Behold the Multiverse stuff and cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder etc. There are also wheels like Windfall. Have you checked Scryfall? Their search engine is rather easy to use.

I still haven't build my Niv deck but I plan to put in the transmute package to find me the three combo pieces

Dizzy Spell for Curiosity

Drift of Phantasms for Tandem Lookout or Ophidian Eye

Hope this helps. Cheers!

Hey, you have an interesting/fun deck, but sorry it's casual power level (PL) 5 at most.

Lands in the manabase and ramp sources are a big sign of what PL. A low budget manabase that has Highland Lake and Temple of the False God isn't PL 7-8. Very little ramp with a 4.0 avg. CMC is not PL 7-8. Please get rid of Temple of the False God.

It's difficult to get to PL 8 or higher on a low budget because the best lands and mana rocks are some of the most expensive cards in Commander. At best on a low budget unless playing mono-colored you're looking at PL 6. Your deck doesn't have any instants or sorceries? Izzet has many good low budget instants and sorceries especially for draw.

You have an infinite combo Niv-Mizzet, Parun + Curiosity, that helps to have a higher PL. Although, Niv-Mizzet, Parun is better as a win condition when it's the Commander not inside the 99. You have many potential other win conditions: Purphoros, God of the Forge, Reckless Fireweaver, Impact Tremors, Nettle Drone, etc., but lack enablers to combo with these win conditions.

To increase PL your deck needs to be more tuned to get to the final goal which is to win the game. PL 8 uses just about all cards in the deck to help to assemble a combo win, ramp, tutor, draw, protect the combo or stop an opponent's combo. If a card doesn't help to do one of these then it's not needed in the deck. Don't try to get to PL 8 unless you can spend for expensive price cards instead shoot for PL 6.

Here's some low budget cards to increase the PL of your deck:

Great suggestions thank you for the comments.

I honestly forgot about Teferi's Puzzle Box and I didn't even think about Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator but that's a great combo.

I first wanted to keep out Ophidian Eye and Curiosity because I was worried they draw my deck dead with Nekusar, the Mindrazer and having them just for Niv-Mizzet, Parun seemed not really worth taking a card slot for me, since I have no way of getting him consistent on the battlefield. I also didn't realize here that Glint-Horn Buccaneer actually kills everybody in the discard step at the end of the turn with enough cards in my hand.

And Glint-Horn Buccaneer goes infinite with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator or Curiosity/Ophidian Eye if that is something you want to do. Curiosity/Ophidian Eye also goes infinite With Niv-Mizzet, Parun.
