So I actually did an order the day before you commented and luckily for me a lot of your suggestions are in my order.
To help with draw I’ve added Gravestorm Rhystic Study Verity Circle Waste Not
To help with lands I’ve added Choked Estuary Creeping Tar Pit Jwar Isle Refuge Mistvault Bridge Salt Marsh Submerged Boneyard Sunken Hollow Swiftwater Cliffs Tainted Isle Temple of Epiphany
To help with mana rocks I’ve added Arcane Signet Corrupted Grafstone Dimir Signet Fellwar Stone Izzet Signet Thought Vessel
I’ve been really contemplating making Mirko Vosk my commander due to the lack of red but I really wanted Xander to work.

I should add that colorless cards like The Underworld Cookbook are legal in any Commander deck.
Token creatures do not count toward the 100. This next note is a little more advanced, but you can create tokens that are not in your commander's color identity, as long as the source is within the color identity. As an example, Experimental Synthesizer creates a white creature token, but is legal in a deck. The way to tell if you can use a card is if it has the symbol , , , , or . If it simply says the word white, to use the Experimental Synthesizer example, it is legal with any commander that uses .
To determine how many lands of a given color to add, aim for the same balance as the card color requirements. On TappedOut, there's a pie chart by this comments section. The closer the inner circle matches up with the outer circle, the more accurate your land balance will be.
You can also go the more math-intensive route and count the number of symbols of each color in your deck and divide that by the number of land slots. So if you have, say, 80 and 40 across all the mana costs in your deck, you will want twice as many lands that produce as lands that produce .
As you expand your collection, look for lands that can produce more than one color of mana. These are available at every level, from the common Swiftwater Cliffs and Izzet Guildgate to the rare and valuable Steam Vents and Fiery Islet. These can take the place of a basic land of either color, but remember, you can only have one of each card in Commander, aside from basic lands.
Also important are other cards that can produce mana. Arcane Signet, Sol Ring, and Izzet Cluestone are all examples of these.

Something like Swiftwater Cliffs would be better than Izzet Guildgate if you’re going to stick with a tap land. Otherwise, something like Sulfur Falls isn’t too pricey and is an upgrade to consider.

Hey, for a first Commander deck well done. You have some interesting card choices and nice Ur-Dragon, Gnawbone, Utvara and Sarkhan.
An area to consider improving on is repeatable draw. When you can get draw from simply having a Dragon ETB then this can help gameplay. Some budget repeatable draw sources to consider adding:
- Temur Ascendancy
- Dragon's Hoard
- Court of Bounty
- Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
- Dragonborn Champion
- Garruk's Uprising
Most of these cards give you more than one effect: Temur Ascendancy is also haste enabler, Dragon's Hoard and Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is also ramp, Court of Bounty can also be cheat a Dragon from your hand onto the battlefield as well as land ramp, Garruk's Uprising also gives all creatures you control trample to break through an opponent's annoying flying Spirit or Angel tokens.
You have Dragon Arch and Quicksilver Amulet which are nice effects to cheat Dragons onto the battlefield, but Court of Bounty is a step above these because it provides other effects. It can be repeatable draw with monarch or lets you play a land from your hand at your upkeep. The monarch is you draw a card at your end step, but only one player in the game can be the monarch. Any player who does combat damage to you or plays a card that makes them the monarch then becomes the monarch and you lose the monarch. You can get it back though and flying Dragons help a lot at attacking as well as blocking for an opponent not to be able to do combat damage to you.
Hellkite Charger is a combo with Old Gnawbone for infinite attacks with Dragons, but if you're playing casual then you might want to avoid a combo like this. I would include it as a win condition with Dragons. There's some budget creature/Dragon upgrades to consider:
- Hellkite Charger
- Scourge of Valkas
- Dragonborn Champion
- Faeburrow Elder
- Tireless Provisioner
- Atarka, World Render
- Silumgar, the Drifting Death
- Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund
You have the three staple budget Rainbow lands already: Tower, Orchard and Ancestry which is great, but you could improve the manabase other ways. If you have a low budget for lands then my advice is replace lands that always ETB tapped with a Tri land. A Tri land such as Jungle Shrine also always ETB tapped, but the color fixing it provides, three colors, is worth it. A land such as Swiftwater Cliffs isn't worth it instead consider Frontier Bivouac?
Archway Commons, Gateway Plaza and other lands like this are not good even though they can potentially make one of five colors. You can't play one of them unless you control an untapped land to pay 1 mana and that's a big requirement just be able to play a land.
Some budget land changes to consider:
- Frontier Bivouac --> Gruul Turf
- Crumbling Necropolis --> Swiftwater Cliffs
- Opulent Palace --> Coral Atoll
- Mystic Monastery --> Rustvale Bridge
- Arcane Sanctum --> Mistvault Bridge
- Seaside Citadel --> Quandrix Campus
If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Unless I'm missing something Cleansing Wildfire and Geomancer's Gambit both seem like they don't advance the game plan very much given that they let your opponent search up basics to replace the lands they lose. Pauper tends to involve decks with lots of basics so it would be hard to get rid of so many that our opponents fail to find. That being said since you are running them you might want to consider Silverbluff Bridge over Swiftwater Cliffs because it will let you use either one of those spells to ramp yourself by targeting your own indestructable dual.

Hey Gattison, I agree that is how the universe works =).
Removing a Gryff would be problematic, because sometimes it's hard to draw eldrazi, having only 7 of them.
I'll think about removing a Goblin Instigator , or better a Dragon Fodder , and a Swiftwater Cliffs , but I'm unconfortable in having 16 lands, needs testing.
As for Goblin Chirurgeon , motion approved! I only need to acquire them.
Thanks for the advice! Cheers!

I love goblins, so I love this deck. That's just the way the universe works. However, it was the Lovecraft reference that brought me here. That is also how this universe works.
I was thinking you could also go -1 Wretched Gryff , -1 Goblin Instigator in order to add some Goblin Grenade s. If you wanted, you could probably cut -1 Swiftwater Cliffs for a third.
I second the motion to add Goblin Chirurgeon . It could replace the 3x Goblin War Party maybe.
