Have you considered replacing the abrades with Lightning Bolt yourself?

Icefall Regent seems nice, neutralizing a creature and requiring the opponent to spend extra mana to get rid of it and get their creature back. Here are some other card suggestions I have:

Dragonlord's Servant : Pretty straightforward, helps ramp into all your dragons.

Demanding Dragon : I think this is a good contender for adult gold dragon's spot, since they both have immediate board impact but this one's a 5/5 instead of a 4/3. (adult gold dragon dies to Dragon's Rage Channeler ;-;)

Stormbreath Dragon : Maybe 1-2 in sb, hoses white decks

Thundermaw Hellkite : Classic dragon powerhouse. Might be better in the sideboard, but still great against any deck with flying creatures. Beats up fairies, good against spirits, and delver+drc+murktide decks.

Terror of the Peaks : A great card, but might not be as good here since it's pretty slow and has no immediate board impact. Overpriced as well.

Dragon Tempest : Also helps speed up your gameplan by making all your dragons hasty, and wipes the opponents board at the same time.

Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw was my favorite janky dragon interaction a while back but that's probably too casual for this list.

Stormbreath Dragon was a 3/4-of in Modern Skred for a long time. It's still very very good in Path-heavy metas, and it's probably worth running one or two if UW(x) control is something you struggle with.

Thundermaw Hellkite might have seen play at one point, but honestly it's just the option you use against BW tokens, which isn't a super common deck anyways.

Both are easily outclassed by Glorybringer most of the time. It represents a 2-for-1 that can easily become a 3- or 4-for-1 if the opponent fails to remove it. While the other two are good, Glorybringer is better except against Path-Snapcaster decks and Bitterblossom / Lingering Souls decks, both of which are rare enough that it takes a really weird local meta for Thundermaw or Stormbreath to be the better choice.

They're all also ~$2 and fill a slot that you typically only have 4-6 spaces for.

I don’t really see them being played anymore. Maybe in EDH Dragon decks?

Stormbreath Dragon used to be played in Modern Ponza sideboards but idk if it does anymore.

Has it really?

On the topic of dragons with equivalent mana costs, thoughts on Thundermaw Hellkite and Stormbreath Dragon ?

It's a shame Hypersonic Dragon doesn't do as well as these other cards in a 60 card deck. Well, I can always use it in casual against crappy decks:)

lagotripha on Thrumming Approach

I like this, put a single dragon in.

This makes searching for thrumming feel a lot better- it gives you two win conditions; cast a thrumming stone or see 5 approaches with Seasoned pyromancer.

While I'd love to reccomend Lightning Shrieker for this spot as this is likely the only deck that likes its drawback, Thundermaw Hellkite , Velomachus Lorehold or Bogardan Hellkite , with sideboard Chromium, the Mutable or Steel Hellkite is going to feel better to play.

In terms of consistently ramping to 5, there are a few budget red green lists that use the 'ramp to Stormbreath Dragon or Glorybringer ' plan to look at for ideas. Generally speaking its some combination of elf, sprawl, Mind Stone (which dodges a lot of removal), and various Elvish Mystic variants.

The trick is going to be filtering and lands - If this is to be a budget deck, I'd go all in on mono red - elf/sprawl is great but just casting Skirk Prospector , Wild Cantor Desperate Ritual and mana rocks will work. Red green will mean moving more heavily into green - looking at casting things like Harrow or Search for Tomorrow , but much of red/green mana is balanced around silly cards like Wrenn and Six or Scapeshift , making a competing mana base tricky to judge - elves' dorks aren't just good because they make mana, they are good because they also are creatures to give stats and trample to.

You are going to want to look really carefully at the balance between land/approach/other - I'm not sure what the most space efficient way to ramp to 5 is with that in mind - I could see this being blue artifact ramp, where you Reshape for thrumming (functionally getting 8+ copies of your combo piece)- it'd take some testing.

Finally, the biggest hurdle and oppertunity. Surgical Extraction . If you are in a meta where it is sideboarded, you need it yourself. You can extract the thing they extract to deny a target, and can set up a transformative 'exile all approaches' sideboard where you are suddenly a 40 card stompy ramp deck with a high proportion of answers.

TheVectornaut on Human to Eldrazi Conversion

It looks like your breakpoint for Eldritch Evolution is at 3 mana, but the single copy of Gisela is the only creature you can tutor for at that point that costs more than the sacrificed creature. If you want Evolution to be the Birthing Pod for this deck, I'd suggest adding more threats that cost 4-5 mana. Fives are particularly valuable since they can themselves be sacced to find Bruna or Deceiver of Form . Sticking with the Eldrazi type, Emrakul's Hatcher , Kozilek's Channeler , and the popular Reality Smasher seem like they'd be the most effective. The world's your oyster if you don't mind running other creature types. Stormbreath Dragon , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Baneslayer Angel , and Thragtusk are some picks recommended by the internet as the best modern creatures on 5. If you prefer having only the biggest baddest threats in the 7-9 range, I'd cut Evolution entirely for more ramp in Cryptolith Rite / Citanul Hierophants , From Beyond / Awakening Zone , or really whatever other options you prefer. Another card I'd consider cutting is Kozilek's Return since it will wipe out all of your tokens (even after upgrading with Emrakul's Evangel ) unless you're lucky enough to also have Eldrazi Monument out. Maybe Mizzium Mortars could be your sweeper if that's what you're looking for. A final cut I'd make is the odd fifth copy of Game Trail . Unless that's a typo, you don't typically want to run more than 4 copies of nonbasics, even in casual. Plus, your deck looks like it could use more white and colorless mana sources anyway. An interesting option that jumped to my mind was Westvale Abbey  Flip since you already have a human token theme. Some other tribal picks that might fit are Champion of the Parish , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Mayor of Avabruck  Flip.

Let me know if you have any questions and good luck! (BTW, I'm not a great sideboard builder, but I do know eldrazi make use of Warping Wail and Oblivion Sower in addition to the more traditional hate artifacts.)

Demarge on Asleep at the Wheel

In modern the 5 cmc dragon threat is really only going to make it you need to have all 4 copies of Sarkhan, Fireblood , he even has the means to reduce the effects of his own redundancy so why not increase the chances you get a 5 cmc dragon out faster?

now your current choice of 5 cmc dragon maybe the new hotness, but what does it really do for your deck synergy wise? Glorybringer and Demanding Dragon both fit the scary dragon top end threat while being removal. Stormbreath Dragon represents a lot of damage and is harder for white decks to remove with path. Terror of the Peaks though is probably the dragon with the most synergy, you get bonus damage from your dragons, though Hunted Dragon does give the opponent some creatures to trigger the slumbering dragon.

Now your sprite really wants free spells or ones that are cheap and cantrip, for consideration Gut Shot and Dismember are both cheap/free removal, Mutagenic Growth also free, these cards also synergize with another suggestion lower down. Manamorphose is probably the most free spell. Opt is just strong cantrip.

Now for possibly the best dragon for this shell that seems to like to target it's own creatures with spells Orvar, the All-Form will get out of hand pretty easily giving all your buff spells a Clone tagged on it.

other considerations are the above mentioned bolts, cheaper spell and doesn't require hoops for it to dome someone. Mutavault is a dragon man land, extra worth considering if you go heavier into a dragon tribal. the full 4 on copter, it is just the best vehicle for it's cmc, well there is the The Omenkeel ... I'd almost suggest having just 4x of these two as your full vehicle detachment the god side would even provide late game options. Spell Pierce is also likely a strong choice over the dragon counterspell, double blue can be tricky to pull off and also have double red.
