Hey, you're welcome, nice changes.
Vigor prevents enrage from happening since it prevents damage dealt to Vron. It's a replacement effect which replaces the damage that is dealt with +1/+1 counters since damage isn't dealt enrage doesn't trigger. Rite of Passage works how you want with Vron because it doesn't prevent damage, but also puts a +1/+1 counter when damage is dealt.
Goblin Bombardment could replace many different cards simply because it's a win condition with Vron that's only two mana. Bombardment is also another card to infinite combo with Polyraptor and it can prevent ending the game in a draw with Marauding Raptor + Polyraptor. Anara, Wolvid Familiar could replace Cacophodon. Is Cacophodon part of a combo that I'm not seeing? Crop Rotation could replace Steel Wall.
Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker are in the precon and they can draw a lot of cards because Vron starts at 5 power. Return being an instant can be cast not on your turn to fill your hand of cards to choose from to cast on your next turn. These spells are excellent with Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient and Old Gnawbone who can make a ton of mana to cast all the cards you draw.
Expertise and Return are actually better spells here than Kindred Summons because with Vron no matter what you're drawing at least 5 cards. Summons requires that you control many Dragons to get the same amount of value. One advantage of Summons is instant speed to potentially reveal both Gnawbone + Charger, cheating them onto the battlefield, but without a way to arrange these Dragons to the top of your library that will be rare.
Sword of Hours is in the precon and it does a lot with Vron since it's a source of repeatable die roll and a way to make Vron bigger with +1/+1 counters. Some budget lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands: Naya Panorama, Jund Panorama, Bonders' Enclave, Rogue's Passage.
Some changes to consider:
- Goblin Bombardment --> Vigor
- Anara, Wolvid Familiar --> Cacophodon
- Crop Rotation --> Phyrexian Walker
- Sword of Hours --> Steel Wall
- Return of the Wildspeaker or Rishkar's Expertise --> Lathliss, Dragon Queen
- Naya Panorama --> 1x Mountain
- Jund Panorama --> 1x Mountain
- Bonders' Enclave --> Temple of the Dragon Queen
- Rogue's Passage --> 1x Forest

Assault Suit could be fun here. It allows you to keep the dragon spirit that it is attached to. The haste is nice as well.

I would add Momentous Fall, Life's Legacy,Return of the Wildspeaker, and Greater Good these are pretty good card draw spells which should work pretty good in a hydra deck being they can get bigger. I've even cast rishkar expertise into wild speaker.
For interaction you could add Walking Ballista and Rite of Passage along with hardened scales makes infinite damage +1/+1 counters on your hydras. Can also be done with Vigor... Also Devoted Druid would make infinite mana with the counters.
These are "infinite" but not in the broken category.

WOW! Your Deck is pretty similar to mine! Have you considered Ripjaw Raptor or Bellowing Aegisaur? Ripjaw Raptor is pretty good for card advantage and it is in general a very good card and Bellowing Aegisaur is pretty good with Pyrohemia and Rite of Passage. Im not an expert but in my opinion these are pretty good. Your deck is pretty good and i really need to change my deck! :)

I feel like getting redundant options for ivy lane is the most important thing - Blade of the Bloodchief +sac outlet will let you get a lot of sacrifices in, Rite of Passage / Urban Daggertooth , Thornbite Staff and Blasting Station will get a lot of etb triggers. Triskelion and Death's Presence exist. Fecundity has been a combo staple for a while. Llanowar Reborn offers a way to get the first counter on herd.
Altar of the Brood is a neat alternative wincon.

I like this. Iwamori is one of those commanders that I have considered building a dozen times, but still never did because I didn't like resulting list. Yours looks very cool, I like the route you've taken. You should consider some ways to make your Saitama indestructible: Spearbreaker Behemoth , Hammer of Nazahn or something similar. Also, how about Gargos, Vicious Watcher as additional removal off of each Aura and fight spell? Bow of Nylea is a great value card that makes your attacks so much better. Vigor and Rite of Passage are awesome for fight decks. Klothys's Design can be quite a house in a deck with big creatures. And then, there is Return of the Wildspeaker . Oh, and I forgot Karametra's Acolyte and Grunn, the Lonely King .

On-topic for what you're planning, you can use Ancestral Mask and Nylea's Colossus to get something really big before you rumble in. There's also passive damage you can stack up with Overabundance , Mana Barbs, Sulfuric Vortex , Court of Ire , et cetera to whittle people down. Sandwurm Convergence makes a lot of beef. It's mana intensive but Pyrohemia and Rite of Passage means you can have a thing that lives while you keep pinging everything. There's also the aforementioned Helix Pinnacle if you're looking at having a lot of mana.
Of course, if you think some thing demand a more personal touch, you could slam a Form of the Dragon and off someone yourself.
