Star of Extinction
Destroy target land. Star of Extinction deals 20 damage to each creature and each planeswalker.

I can't help but notice you don't have much in the way of ammo for damaging your own creatures. Maybe your opponent will do the job for you, but it's just as possible he has a bunch of flyers who can just dodge your critters, or maybe he's trying to mill you out. Sometimes if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!

I definitely second the MTGO idea if you have no nearby game stores. It's definitely not the same as playing in person, but it works. There is also Spelltable for webcam games. Anyways, onto some deck suggestions:
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury is a really strong Rakdos dragon since it pumps your team.
I personally have removed Urza's Incubator from my dragon tribal deck. There has been a pretty significant uptick in dragon decks lately due to recent sets and the symmetrical effect has become much more of a liability. I would replace it with Herald's Horn. You still get cost reduction, but with some card advantage thrown onto it.
Speaking of card advantage, I think you could use a lot more. Atsushi, the Blazing Sky is both a dragon and card advantage. Solemn Simulacrum is both ramp and card draw. Stinging Study is 5 mana, draw 5 for you at instant speed. I always advocate for black decks to run Read the Bones. It's still one of the best card draw cards in black.
Lastly, a litte more interaction could go a long ways. Crux of Fate is a fantastic board wipe for dragon tribal, and a Bedevil and Terminate would go a long way. If you want to get really spicy, Wrathful Red Dragon + either Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction is hilarious.
Good luck deck building! It looks like a fun build.

I like it, seems strong and on point and is probably better than mine.
Personally I think Scute Swarm / Scute Mob / Rampaging Baloths and Zendikar's Roil are actually pretty decent and can explode quickly if you like going wide and big. Also, Bane of Progress might be better or equivalent to Structural Assault because it gets enchantments and counters. You already have that wipe in addition to Blasphemous Act, having two might be better, but Star of Extinction is stupid with Vigor. Tilonalli's Summoner is more on theme than the beast or insect tokens and is better with Locus of Rage but you could theoretically use Arcane Adaptation if you really want to commit.
Eh just some thoughts, its obviously strong, but you have an easy chance to go wide for a few changes.

I have a similar deck to this one and Star of Extinction works fantastically.

I had a Toralf deck but since now have a Florian, Voldaren Scion deck that functions much the same but has more of a fighting chance for other people.

Radiant_Draconis - You must play some long games! Star of Extinction is bloody expensive, lol! That is a good combo though. I do the same thing with a solider deck (Boots on the Ground). I have thought of doing something similar but with Wakening Sun's Avatar using him to to blast everything and clear the way for a victory.
I will say though, I kinda put my dino deck together thinking it would be a little slower but it actually does pretty well in Open Modern on MTGO as it holds its own against most decks and overwhelms a lot of creature focused decks with just bigger creatures. The dinosaurs are so fun to play with the enrage, I hope they do another dino themed set in the near future...would love to get more to play with!

lhetrick13 I have made a few more tweaks after playing some matches at my LGS! Bringing Star of Extinction to the table is just so fun. especially when my Temple Altisaur protects my creatures from extinction... Watching the rest of the board go up in flames, oh man it feels good!

Nice build! Ganax, Astral Hunter could be a good inclusion for recurring treasure production over some of the one shot effects you have.
