I appreciate the creativity, and there are certainly a few suggestions I could present. But first, I think it is most important to address your choice of Commander.

Niv-Mizzet Reborn is absolutely not the right Commander for this deck. And I don't mean to say that all 5-color Dragon tribal decks should have The Ur-Dragon at the helm (though, that would be a great choice, just sayin'). My reason is simple: you don't have enough color pair cards on the list for 'Ol Nivvy to be useful. Like, at all. Even as part of the 99.

Now, you could fix that by adding spells such as Terminate, Abrupt Decay, Diabolic Vision, Faeburrow Elder, Render Silent, Anguished Unmaking, etc etc etc... Not to mention that you only have 8 color pair dragons in the deck, and 5 of them are Gruul (meaning, first of all, that the most amount of dragons you could snatch with Niv would be 3 and the chances of doing so are astronomical, and secondly that if you revealed 3 or more dragons by some dumb luck they're more likely to all be Gruul than any other combination, meaning you'd only get to keep one).

The thing is, you'd have to add a helluva lot of cards to make Niv palatable for this deck, and that would mean basically overhauling the entire deck. A much easier task would be to just simply change the commander.

As for general suggestions, I think you can use some Haste enablers. Dragon Tempest, Temur Ascendancy, Dragonlord Kolaghan and Sarkhan Vol come readily to mind, but there are a ton of other choices, such as Rhythm of the Wild, Fires of Yavimaya and Samut, Tyrant Smasher.

As for your question about better low-mana dragons, understand that there really aren't many good ones below MV4. I mean, they're dragons. What do you expect? However, here's a few of the better ones that aren't an arm and a leg:

Again, if you're going for a genuinely low curve dragon deck, you're going to be disappointed. It just really can't be done.

And finally, Lathliss, Dragon Queen is quite upset that she wasn't included.

That's all I got.

I think Manalith and Mana Geode are both fine for now. They aren't the best and would probably need to be swapped out later but I think they'd be fine in a first draft. Same with Terminate.

For possible cuts... Temple of the False God has sabotaged me more times than it has helped me, though. Definitely recommend taking that one out. The five single color (and Adult Gold Dragon) AFR dragons, while cool, don't really do much in commander, sadly. I'd recommend taking them out as well. Gratuitous Violence is a great card for mono- decks but gets increasingly more difficult to cast with more colors. It will end up being uncastable in most situations. Should probably also be cut.

As for recommendations... Hellkite Courser would be fantastic in this deck! "Blinking" Tiamat in for a turn to trigger it's effect seems really good. Unclaimed Territory and Exotic Orchard would be help immensely with color fixing issues. Temur Ascendancy is great for giving all your dragons haste and helping you draw cards. Stubborn Denial (and to a lesser extent, anything with the keyword Ferocious) works really well in decks with big creatures. See the Unwritten is a way to possibly cheating out some creatures if you're looking for a bit of randomness. Lastly, Sarkhan's Unsealing can help you get rid of some enemy creatures or just blast someone in the face (or both!) just for casting dragons.

I think your first goal should be to getting the deck to 100 cards. Once there, you can use all the stats this site provides to see if you need more cards that help fix colors, what your mana curve is, how many spells you have etc. You can also create custom categories by putting #(yourcategoryname) after the card name in the deck builder. You can better organize your deck into categories like card draw, dragons, removal etc. You can even put them in multiple categories if you want. Here's a few so you can see what I mean :

1x Lathliss, Dragon Queen #Dragons #Tokens

1x Terminate #Creature_Removal

1x Command Tower #Lands

1x Arcane Signet #Ramp

Hope this helps! Best of luck!

Niko9, I am going to save a bit of spending and I think getting Doubling Cube and Sword of Hours makes the most sense. In gameplay one thing that has really helped this deck get off the ground also is haste, because getting to where you're casting dragons can take a bunch of turns. So in addition to Fires of Yavimaya and Dragon Tempest I am also going to be adding Temur Ascendancy and Fervor. To make room I may actually remove a dragon or two as once they're out they are really strong.

Temur Ascendancy is Fervor with extra color and effect... so if you have if you can consistently have tri colors on curve I see no issue. Assuming Haste is the initial reason for inclusion anyway, though after looking I see no others in the list so... who knows. If it's card draw I'm sure there's better.

I have replaced Temur Ascendancy and Deus of Calamity with Thought Vessel and Vithian Renegades, which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.98 to 3.94. As much as I liked those two cards, I did not have a sufficient number of creatures with power 4 or greater to justify the ascendancy and the deus's land-destroying ability could annoy my opponents, and the additional source of mana will be nice, as well.

I have a copy of Temur Ascendancy in my Riku of Two Reflections EDH deck, but I am wondering if that deck contains a sufficient number of creatures with power 4 or greater to justify the inclusion of that enchantment.

What does everyone else say about this subject? Does my Riku deck contain enough creatures with power 4 or greater to justify the inclusion of Temur Ascendancy?

Do I have enough creatures with power 4 or greater to justify the inclusion of Temur Ascendancy in this deck? I am not certain that I do.
