IMO must includes for draw, control, and a bit of ramp Grappling Hook, Angel of Condemnation, Endless Atlas, Darksteel Mutation, Empowered Autogenerator, Steel Hellkite.
Here are a list of unblockable artifacts that smooth out any voltron play Hot Soup, Prowler's Helm, Whispersilk Cloak, Suspicious Bookcase, Rogue's Passage, Trailblazer's Boots, Manifold Key, Key to the City.

I think Steel Hellkite would be a good (budget) addition.
multimedia on Miirym Dragon Tribal Deck

Hey, well done so far for a first deck with a $500+ budget.
34 lands and only 9 reliable ramp sources is low for Dragons. The land count is fine, but only if you add more low mana cost ramp. Add more lands or add more ramp? Tempt with Discovery relies on opponents to be ramp and Thaumatic Compass Flip relies on you controlling seven or more lands to be ramp. These aren't reliable as ramp and they cost too much mana for what you get.
In simplest terms there's two areas you want most with Miirym, ramp and Dragons. Ramp to first cast 6 mana Miirym and Dragons to cast after Miirym. Of course you want other areas too, but most important are these two. Consider expanding on ramp?
- Nature's Lore, Farseek
- Cursed Mirror
- Jade Orb of Dragonkind, Fellwar Stone
- Shadow in the Warp
- Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
Nature's Lore, Farseek are more good two drop land ramp like Three Visits. Cursed Mirror is excellent with blink, if you blink the copied creature then that blinks Mirror which can then ETB as a copy of some other creature including an opponent's creature. You can also choose to have it just ETB as a mana rock which is needed for a combo.
Jade Orb of Dragonkind gives protection from targeted removal until your next turn for the Dragon you cast with it. This effect is helpful since paying a lot of mana to cast a Dragon to then have it killed is feels bad. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner untap ability is versatile, any permanent you control, it's also repeatable draw when a Dragon ETB including a token.
There's 100+ of different Dragons you could play with a $500+ budget and having Old Gnawbone as a price point? Consider upgrading some Dragons?
These Dragons can be parts of wincon combos and they're made much better thanks to Miiryn copying them. All these Dragons don't break the bank and adding them can really increase the power level of your deck.
- Hellkite Charger + Old Gnawbone = infinite combat steps, attacks.
- Astral Dragon + Cursed Mirror = infinite Astrals with haste.
- Niv-Mizzet, Parun + Tandem Lookout = draw as much of your library as you want.
- Wrathful Red Dragon + Blasphemous Act = do a ton of damage to opponents.
What's nice about these combos are they all use a Dragon. All the cards are good by themselves, but with the Dragon and/or Miirym they're much better. Tandem Lookout can be repeatable draw that can change creature it's bonded too. Bond to any creature you control before Miirym, then bond to Miirym and when you're ready bond to Niv-Mizzet. Bond to any Dragon who can do repeatable noncombat damage to opponents such as Scourge of Valkas for lots of draw.
- Goldspan Dragon, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient
- Iymrith, Desert Doom, Ancient Silver Dragon
- Steel Hellkite
Getting more value: ramp, draw or removal from Dragons can help gameplay. Steel Hellkite + Old Gnawbone/Savage Ventmaw mana can wreck especially when you have multiple Hellkites.
If you're interested I offer more advice in another comment. Would you like more advice?
Good luck with your deck.

This is wonderful! I'm missing a very, very important card for especially your deck and strategy though: Unwinding Clock. In my view, a must have in this deck. Steel Hellkite would give you some more excellent removal. Also, I would prefer the new Cityscape Leveler over Meteor Golem as it guarantees more uses of its destruction ability (especially when you cast it with flash). And as long as I'm talking about removal, Walking Ballista is also very good.

Wasn't there a fix already proposed? The "French" Mulligan, I believe it was called? Where you draw 7 and, when you decide you'd rather not keep a hand of 6 lands and 1 mana rock, you take those seven cards and throw them at the bottom in a random order. You draw the next seven and decide if you'd like to keep. If you do, you choose 1 of the 7 and that too goes to the bottom.
If you do not keep, all 7 go to the bottom and you draw the next seven. If you keep that, you choose 2 cards and those go to the bottom.
- (They may all get shuffled in, I'm not sure.)
Either way, the best way to end poor draws and needless mulligans is to just adhere to proper deck building techniques, such as land ratios and mana curves. That won't guarantee you 100% of the time that a hand is usable, but it will significantly improve your odds.
Although the BEST method is to implement redundancy. For example, having a "midrange" deck with only 5 removal spells is entirely pointless. You'd want probably 12 removal spells, so you constantly draw back into something new, to keep the midrange game going. Hell, you may want something like 12 instant / sorcery removal spells, a few kill-ability spells such as Steel Hellkite and Meteor Golem, probably like three solid wraths to reset the boardstate, and maybe even a Planeswalker or two that can kill creatures just to have some added and repeatable utility thrown into the mix.
Redundancy. Now when you take a hand, as long as your mana curve is tight and your mana base is fluid, you'll be able to be more flexible in your plays.
We, in Commander, don't get the benefit of running playsets of the best spells in the game. We don't get 4x Counterspell and 4x Lightning Bolt and 4x Mutagenic Growth. So we have to make due with a Dreadbore and a Terminate and a Murder and a Go for the Throat and a Walk the Plank and a Fatal Push. Because now, if you draw a theoretical hand of say, 3 lands, some enchantment, an expensive creature and two of anything listed above, you're probably going to be good. Because you can get your lands out and hold your removal against someone's Commander to buy you time - as is how you'd want Midrange to play. As an example.
But, seeing as this is a General forum, the idea still remains. Redundancy. Run 2x, 3x and 4x of the very best cards. Now, your hand is far more predictable and solid, all the time.
Redundancy is how you win games.

carpecanum I like that Steel Hellkite, what do you think i should remove to use it? And Silent Arbiter is a good option but with the commander all my creatures have menace and i should have a lot of thopters, in any case i will have to use the deck in a real situation to check if it is totally necessary or not.

Silent Arbiter to make your artifact creatures unblockable?
Bladegriff Prototype and Steel Hellkite for removal. The Metalwork Colossus should come out cheap in this deck.

You should check out my green white token deck. Its got more than a few cards id recommend to fill out your ramp, removal, and draw while keeping the cost of the deck down. Here are a couple examples id recommend.
Kyler, the ULTIMATE HYPE MAN!!!
Angel of Condemnation
