Thran Temporal Gateway Discussion

For getting big creatures out fast without ramping there is a few options. First off you can try Quicksilver Amulet , or Cryptic Gateway , or Belbe's Portal . These are great effects for cheating a creature into play. There's also Thran Temporal Gateway

I recommend adding some more early game ramp creatures or spells, probably as replacements for the Dragon Egg s and the risky Nikya of the Old Ways . More Dragonlord's Servant are totally fine, but I could also see Voyaging Satyr working to untap Gruul Turf for big mana or Zhur-Taa Druid bridging the gap between acceleration and aggression. On the spell side of things, some good old Rampant Growth effects could make Dragonmaster Outcast a nasty threat. Just looking at the cards you already have, I think more copies of Thunderbreak Regent , Atarka, World Render , and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma wouldn't hurt. Another option if you don't mind infinite combos is upping the count of Savage Ventmaw and Grand Warlord Radha so you can run Hellkite Charger for endless combat phases.
I'll also list some possible upgrades and sidegrades based on my own experience playing with and against dragons. Dragon Tempest is nearly a direct upgrade for Impact Tremors in dragons and Scourge of Valkas is also decent. Draconic Roar seems like it would be better than Magma Jet and/or Jaya's Greeting most of the time. Spit Flame might be even better if targets tend to have 4 toughness. Flying destruction feels unnecessary here, but I'd prefer something cheaper than Pinion Feast like the flexible Broken Wings regardless. Frontier Siege might be better than Atarka Monument if you need more mana or removal. Crucible of Fire could replace Sight of the Scalelords or Dragon Throne of Tarkir , depending on how much power you need. Sarkhan, Fireblood can be a rummager, accelerant, and bomb in the world you keep him alive. Even with so many legendaries, I still prefer Elvish Piper to Thran Temporal Gateway here. A final card that I'm not sure on is the new Draconic Intervention . Seems like it could be an interesting sweeper follow-up to a Descent of the Dragons that turns all your dorks into immune dragons. That is fairly slow though.
Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your deck!

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)
Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.
Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.
Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.
Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.
Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS
Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.
Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.
Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.
Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.
Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.
Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.
Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.
Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad
Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.

For your sub-theme support (and some of them are dragon-themed too!):

not sure how I feel about Phyrexian Triniform for 9 mana its a bit much. I have tried Thran Temporal Gateway and Quicksilver Amulet I think your curve is too low to make good use out of them as well. I think you may be light on the card draw have you considered cards like Vedalken Archmage, Whirlwind of Thought, Shimmer Dragon, Riddlesmith

I've been working on acquiring some of the cheaper rocks, but I only order specific cards every couple of months. I'll probably add those to my next order. I agree Reshape the Earth is pretty bad, I playtested it once and didn't get much kick out of it except to help recast Zacama quicker. I'll probably take it out for some cheaper ramp. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't Zacama need to be in my hand via Command Beacon to use Thran Temporal Gateway? I do agree it's good for cheating out other cards like Gishath, the elder dinos, and my bigger artifacts.

I like smashy decks! I agree with Optimator's comments that you'll need more ramp and rocks. Reshape the Earth is bad because it's really a more-win card than a ramp card. I like the Talismans for flexibility and cost, and the Signets as well. I also believe every commander deck needs a Sol Ring. Alternatively, you could look for cards that let you cheat big CMC permanents into play. Zacama is an instant voltron threat that will draw a lot of hate, which means his CMC effectively goes up as the game progresses. Thran Temporal Gateway is a card I use in my No Paradox Engine, No Problem! Sisay Untap Angels deck to cheat in big threats, and it gives the bonus of being able to drop legendary permanents into play at instant speed. You wouldn't get the cast trigger from Zacama, but you could accelerate his other abilities or just start smashing.
