Sight of the Scalelords Discussion

This deck is after my little stompy gruul dragon heart! It's beautiful. I was going to suggest Zhur-Taa Druid in place of Rattleclaw Mystic for the extra burn damage, but I saw your shenanigans with morph and that makes a lot of sense.
For another Tarkir gem, have you considered Sight of the Scalelords, or is the cmc too high for your curve?

Heyo! Evil Artifact/Enchantment destruction: Cindervines , Storm the Citadel , Decimate , Hull Breach , Casualties of War - there's a billion, but those are efficient/flexible/fit in your deck. Keep in mind Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge though...
Other random things that might be good: Gruul Charm (first effect fits the deck, second good against Norin the Wary Sight of the Scalelords (Most of your spiders have 4 toughness, and Thantis forces you to attack as well, so vigilance is great) Havoc Festival ...depending on how insane you want to make things. It's a card. lol

I recommend adding some more early game ramp creatures or spells, probably as replacements for the Dragon Egg s and the risky Nikya of the Old Ways . More Dragonlord's Servant are totally fine, but I could also see Voyaging Satyr working to untap Gruul Turf for big mana or Zhur-Taa Druid bridging the gap between acceleration and aggression. On the spell side of things, some good old Rampant Growth effects could make Dragonmaster Outcast a nasty threat. Just looking at the cards you already have, I think more copies of Thunderbreak Regent , Atarka, World Render , and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma wouldn't hurt. Another option if you don't mind infinite combos is upping the count of Savage Ventmaw and Grand Warlord Radha so you can run Hellkite Charger for endless combat phases.
I'll also list some possible upgrades and sidegrades based on my own experience playing with and against dragons. Dragon Tempest is nearly a direct upgrade for Impact Tremors in dragons and Scourge of Valkas is also decent. Draconic Roar seems like it would be better than Magma Jet and/or Jaya's Greeting most of the time. Spit Flame might be even better if targets tend to have 4 toughness. Flying destruction feels unnecessary here, but I'd prefer something cheaper than Pinion Feast like the flexible Broken Wings regardless. Frontier Siege might be better than Atarka Monument if you need more mana or removal. Crucible of Fire could replace Sight of the Scalelords or Dragon Throne of Tarkir , depending on how much power you need. Sarkhan, Fireblood can be a rummager, accelerant, and bomb in the world you keep him alive. Even with so many legendaries, I still prefer Elvish Piper to Thran Temporal Gateway here. A final card that I'm not sure on is the new Draconic Intervention . Seems like it could be an interesting sweeper follow-up to a Descent of the Dragons that turns all your dorks into immune dragons. That is fairly slow though.
Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your deck!

Do you have High Alert in the deck already? for when you lose your commander or don't have him out.
Other good choices;
Creatures: Stalwart Shield-Bearers & Oathsworn Giant.
Equipment: Mirror Shield.
Enchantments: Sight of the Scalelords,Spidersilk Armor, Treefolk Umbra, Eland Umbra & Leyline of Vitality.
Planeswalkers: Elspeth, Sun's Champion.

As an enchantment deck, I think Might of Oaks and Giant Growth can be replaced with an enchantment that is equal, if not superior, like Armor of Thorns or Hydra's Growth. I think your Natural Connection has better alternatives, there's far better spell based ramp, and you should use an enchantment, like Sheltered Aerie.
Cool deck though! Definitely like Sight of the Scalelords and Oath of the Ancient Wood. Have you considered Nylea's Colossus? You have far more ramp than my deck does, so it could be an absolute all-star in here.

Colfenor's Urn is kind of a lot of elaborate work for a bit of a dubious payoff(it generally seems much worse than just having a counterspell to protect your creatures from dying in the first place, for example.). Mirror Shield is a hyper specific draft card, It's just not very powerful. Also, vigilance isn't really an important keyword for you, so Brave the Sands isn't really helping you much. I'm also skeptical of Sight of the Scalelords...your creatures are probably big enough on average that an anthem isn't really the most important effect for you, particularly not at such a steep rate.
I'd suggest they be replaced with just cheap cantrips and/or interaction, if there's no other cards that immediately are of interest for you. Beast Within, Generous Gift, Disdainful Stroke, Negate, Kenrith's Transformation are a few excellent and budget options. Effects like Rampant Growth or Mind Stone would also probably be fine and generically good additions.
