You may play Twilight's Call any time you could play an instant if you pay more to play it.
Each player returns all creature cards from his or her graveyard to play.

No prob! Haha yeah TO prices are usually pretty behind. I see a bunch on TCGPlayer for $4.
Another strong commander option, though it'd be self-mill and a second color, is Araumi of the Dead Tide. Encore makes more petitioners depending on the # of opponents which is cool. Also Araumi opens the door for strong black cards like Echoing Return, Secret Salvage, Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding, Twilight's Call, and Haunting Voyage. Could close out the game by reanimating Lab Maniac using Araumi or Dread Return

Reaperfire For sure! You could cut some of the more odd cards for better interactions and protection but this deck is a bit more casual than my other ones so I just jam the fun cards and don't care a ton about have the correct amount of interaction.
Ebegeezer Usually I'm looking for hands with 3-4 lands, a threat or two, ramp and a card draw engine to refill. The biggest thing with the deck is dumping everything to ramp into the dragons and then casting one, it dying and then having no action. So if you can get the engines to start drawings that would be key.
Niemandswasser Yes I have! It has provided a great way of providing fuel for the big recursion engines and value if you're dragons die to draw more cards. The deck has been moving in a way that the dragons have less power so you're not able to draw as many cards. Might have to include a Crucible of Fire in the future since they're getting lower with each set but I like it a lot if you're doing graveyard interactions!
HerbivoreDragon Yes I think if I were to get another wipe in the deck, I'd add Blasphemous Act for that potential interaction. I've played Twilight's Call in other decks before. I think the ones I have included are better versions of it and there might be a few others out there I'm not thing of but if you're wanting to play more of that effect, I don't see a problem with it. Just don't overload on them.
tinqle I was only including in the update the Elders and one's I wanted to put in the deck if I had space. Firkraag in the exclusion tab further down in the page of the deck description and a small explanation on why. Basically, Firkraag is better as the head of a Goad deck rather than a Goading creature in a dragon deck. With it, I'd rather be goading a lot of creatures than just one per turn.

What a nicely written Baldur's Gate Update MattN7498!!
When Wrathful Red Dragon got spoiled i also knew right from the start this is gonna be a staple in Dragon Tribal Decks, period. Same goes for Thrakkus the Butcher. Doubling the attackpower of every Dragon you control? Insane. Giving them trample via Garruk's Uprising for example and double strike via Atarka, World Render or a quick The Ur-Dragon trigger into Sylvia Brightspear in addition and we look at a pretty effective Overrun.
I think we still don't quite get how powerful Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm will be in this deck, it's gonna be almost hilarious. Double Terror of the Peaks and Scourge of Valkas triggers are going to make me smile, haha.
I switched Crux of Fate (i know, i know..) for Blasphemous Act as my Playgroup tends to steal my cards, so they use Crux of Fate to wipe the board with all my dragons or i can't wipe their board as they control MY dragons. With Blasphemous Act i make sure everything dies and comes back to MY graveyard, it also serves as a finisher with Blasphemous Act + Wrathful Red Dragon , shoot x times 13 Damage at non-Dragon targets, including life totals, where x is the number of Dragons you control. With Blasphemous Act you also have yet another way to get your Dragons into the Graveyard for mass reanimation spells like Patriarch's Bidding, Living Death, Haunting Voyage or Twilight's Call.
By the way I really like Twilight's Call as you can play it at instant speed which can be a game changer for example when someone tries to exile our graveyard. More often then not did the Foretell mechanic of Haunting Voyage hindered me by ONE turn to win the game and made me loose, which is why i changed it to Twilight's Call.
In general, you were a HUGE inspiration for my own iteration of an The Ur-Dragon Deck and i always come back to your Primer when i need some advice or thoughts on cards. So thank you for the write-up!
Some day I would love to show you my The Ur-Dragon Deck, as i would very much appreciate to hear your thoughts on some of my card picks! (I still need to post it on tappedout..)

Cards I'd suggest finding room for
Tutors like Forerunner of the Legion if you don't like the usual ones.
Mass reanimation like Twilight's Call Living Death or even Patriarch's Bidding I feel mass reanimation and using aristocrats to win on the spot is the most ideal way to win in this type of deck. Always run some if you plan to win with death triggers.
Specifically for Edgar Markov I'd run some sort of Xtra combat spell like Waves of Aggression just so he is the finisher he is if you need to cast him.

Doubling death triggers is a powerful effect. However you need to get a good amount of value from it to make it worth it. A Xtra token once is not great (see Hunted Witness). I'd look at that if you are looking where to cut to add any of this.
Open the Graves Xtra token per death trigger.
Mask of Griselbrand card draw made for this deck. By far.
Crowded Crypt interesting new card I'd suggest running over the locket
Demon of Dark Schemes boardwipe small guys plus reanimation.
Death Tyrant a little niche but very powerful if doubled.
Fallen Ideal For thatvultron win vs the deck with near infinite health.
Peer into the Abyss underrated card draw or even player removal.
Twilight's CallDread ReturnVictimize Hell's Caretaker you lack reanimation almost entirely. This is a few I'd suggest. In this type of deck saying your board 1ce reanimating and doing it all over again is the general way I see aristocrats win. Adding a few even if it's not these will immensely power up your deck.
