multimedia if I put Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner in the deck I could put Sarkhan the Masterless back in as well as I can use his ability to transform Kiora into a dragon

Hey, on a budget really well done for your first Dragon tribal deck. On low budget you have good card sense and deck building skills.
There's many excellent Dragons here, but some stand out as subpar, not needed.
- Fellwar Stone --> Scaled Nurturer
- Fierce Empath --> Skanos Dragonheart
- Eternal Witness --> Earthquake Dragon
- Dryad's Revival --> Sapphire Dragon
Scaled Nurturer is lackluster ramp because only green mana and the mana can only be used to cast a Dragon. Can do much better for two drop ramp. Fierce Empath is another budget creature tutor to get a Dragon.
There's one area of deck building that you've left out, recursion and green is the best color for it because it's recursion of any card such as Eternal Witness. In multiplayer Commander your stuff is going to be destroyed a lot having some card recursion can help to get back certain cards that are important to gameplay such as Temur Ascendancy. Witness and Empath can be blinked to be repeatable.
- Bower Passage --> Sarkhan the Masterless
- Court of Bounty --> Crucible of Fire
Sarkhan the Masterless is less impactful here for five mana then if you're playing more Planeswalkers or a Commander Planeswalker. Bower Passage can help Dragons to wreck your opponents. For two mana it makes them essentially unblockable. It can stop annoying little Spirits from being blockers against Dragons.
Court of Bounty can be repeatable draw with the monarch and then repeatable cheat Dragon or cheat land from your hand. Dragons don't really need +3/+3 from Crucible of Fire for four mana since they're already high power/toughness and flying makes them good attackers.
- Yavimaya Coast --> Thornwood Falls
- Shivan Reef --> 1x Mountain
- Karplusan Forest --> 1x Mountain
- Mosswort Bridge --> 1x Forest
- Game Trail --> 1x Mountain
- Vineglimmer Snarl --> 1x Mountain
12x basic Mountains is a lot compared to the other numbers of basic lands. Replacing some basic Mountains with more dual lands could improve color fixing from lands to help gameplay. Yavimaya Coast, Shivan Reef, Karplusan Forest Pain lands have just been reprinted in newest set Dominaria United, get them while they're $2 or less each.
Good luck with your deck.

Some cards I can think of are Comeuppance and Divine Deflection. Other cards like Sarkhan the Masterless, Circle of Flame and Lightmine Field punish attacking.

TheoryCrafter: Luxior, Giada's Gift says "in addition to its other types" so I doubt it. Note that e.g. Sarkhan the Masterless also turns people into non-PW creatures without affecting legendary-ness AFAIK.

So I just found out that you can take a card with mutate like Parcelbeast and drop it on top of a permanent that's only temporarily a creature (vehicle, equipment, planeswalker, land, etc.) and it will permanently become only the top creature but keep it's other abilities. This way you can clone or proliferate your animated land, 1/1 sol ring creature or your mutant 'planeswalker' monster that can't die from having 0 loyalty counters or have creatures directed to attack it, yet can still activate loyalty abilities. (Clearly we're playing the game as Wizards intended...) Pairs really well with Sarkhan the Masterless. Also with some commanders if the mutant is on top. Because while the commander is still a commander, it is no longer a legendary- meaning that you can add it and other legendaries to your list of cloneable etb creatures that won't be dead on arrival.

I would like to say, before I say anything else, that the first few decks people build often have a bunch that could be fixed, so if it seems like I wrote an essay, I'm not trying to be overly critical. My first deck was a mono-white Angel Tribal Lifegain deck that had no real payoff for gaining life. Needless to say, it had a lot that could have been done, and my next deck was one of the Commander Pre-Cons from C18. I'd also like to say that these are just observations.
For cuts, I can see a few. Several of the planeswalkers seem only sort-of related, so you could get away with dropping some of them (like Gideon Blackblade and Ajani Steadfast). I'm not sure why Blackblade Reforged is in. It is great for go tall decks, where you want 1 really big creature (usually made big using equipments and/or auras), but in a go wide deck like this one, I'm not sure if you need it. Plus, dragons are fairly big on their own. | Chaplain's Blessing. I know gaining 5 life might seem good, but I've come to realize that gaining a bunch of life isn't very good without something like Aetherflux Reservoir. And at that point, I think a better option is to build around Aetherflux Reservoir, not dragons. | Not entirely sure what Bag of Holding is doing. | There are a few dragons that don't seem to be doing much, with the way your deck currently is. There doesn't seem to be a lot of instants/sorceries for Backdraft Hellkite get back. There aren't a lot of +1/+1 counter synergies, so Enduring Scalelord isn't doing a ton. There aren't a lot of artifacts, so Hellkite Igniter isn't getting the absurd amount of damage output that I've done with it, myself. It does have haste, but a 5/5 hasty flyer for 7 isn't super great. Unless you can give it deathtouch, most things in commander aren't bothered by Shockmaw Dragon's combat damage trigger. There aren't a lot of 2-colour spells for Niv-Mizzet Reborn to see off the top. | Dictate of Erebos can be brutal, but usually in aristocrat-style decks, where you want your own things to die.
Some other things I've noticed: Crux of Fate is a cheaper Descent of the Dragons that is also one sided. | About the Sarkhan question, I've always thought that Sarkhan the Masterless is kind of funny, and he can act as a deterrent for attacks (or a magnet, depending on board state). | 5 mana counterspells seems nice, but often end up being rather underwhelming, more often than not. | Fight effects (like Clash of Titans) are nice, but in a 5-colour deck, you also have cards like Path to Exile, Bedevil, Anguished Unmaking, Generous Gift, or Chaos Warp, that don't need you to have a big creature, and don't need you to put that creature at risk. | I feel like you could use a bit more ramp. I'd recommend a few of the guild signets from Ravnica, Arcane Signet and Farseek. | The Ur-Dragon was the out-of-the-box Commander for a 5-colour dragon tribal commander deck from C17. Usually he is the head of a dragon tribal deck, but he's still powerful in the 99.
All of this is just my opinion, with my own biases, and I'm still learning a fair bit myself, so take it with a grain of salt. Playtest it, see what works and what doesn't. See what you like, and what you don't. I will admit that I prefer more aggressive play as opposed to a slower, more control heavy style, so that may influence my choices, and I've also been (partially) traumatized by a few planeswalker decks before, so I don't really like them that much (although I do like the concept and design of them).
Lastly, I don't know if you have any pet cards or any cards that you are running because you like them (even if it may be not as good), so if a personal favorite is listed among the cuts, feel free to ignore that. Magic IS about having fun, at the end of the day. And, yes, Dragon Tribal is glorious!
