Sarkhan the Masterless
Legendary Planeswalker — Sarkhan
Whenever a creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control, each Dragon you control deals 1 damage to that creature.
+1: Until end of turn, each planeswalker you control becomes a 4/4 red Dragon creature and gains flying.
-3: Create a 4/4 red Dragon creature token with flying.

Not sure if Springleaf Drum would work in here? Your Commander comes out quite early and doesn't tap to use his ability, also useful if you steal a creature or make a small token.
If you end up using Tymaret's ability a fair bit, some Lifelink might be nice since it's damage, Mask of Griselbrand seems like a fit (great if your Commander dies a lot), possibly Basilisk Collar. Either of those is also quite good with Rite of the Raging Storm, and if it's not killed you can sacrifice the token with your Commander each turn (same if a 5/1 trample is useless otherwise). Another great sacrifice source could be Ophiomancer (but it's a bit pricey), or Ogre Slumlord, which can make a ton of bodies in some matches. Sifter of Skulls is a budget pawn of ulamog, not sure if you want both (but I think I would).
If you're using Crux of Fate, I feel like you should consider Sarkhan the Masterless, it's Dragon tokens will dodge the wipe, and he can make you harder to attack if you have a few Dragons out.
It's an old/weird card, but Kyren Negotiations has some synergy with your Commander, it turns any creatures you have out into damage sources, even if they can't attack, handy to use before sacrificing something maybe?
Whenever I see Whisper, it makes me think of Hell's Caretaker, Caretaker is more awkward timing-wise, but it's also only 1 for 1. I really love Coffin Queen, especially to reanimate opponent's stuff, but she is a bit pricey.
Since your Commander is a Zombie, have you thought about using Gravecrawler? If you have enough support, you could make your Commander into an infinite combo, but I think even if you just cast Gravecrawler 2 or 3 times a turn you're probably not doing too badly? The fact that it's not a token means it'll work with Pawn or Sifter of Skulls, and Bog Initiate can turn their mana into Black, so you can recast Gravecrawler at least. Defiler of Flesh can also help recast Gravecrawler (or any other Black permanent).

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.
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.

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.
