In my deck I want to enter markdown referencing the 6/6 Dragon token from Utvara Hellkite.
There's many dragon tokens so I can't just reference
I tried this:
But it doesn't work

Grubbernaut-I figured already phoenixes would a weak tribe by themselves and figured i would need a big finisher, atm i have Yidaro, Wandering Monster in the deck for to reasons 1. as a finisher and 2. He can be cycled multiply times which allows to bring back Spellpyre Phoenix. And i have Utvara Hellkite as a big finisher as well.
enpc No i don't want five colors, three at most. I considered green but other than ramp and enchantment/artifact hate i really didn't see green as beneficial, though black green does indeed have great death pay offs im not trying to make an aristocratic style deck. As for Darigaaz Reincarnated yes his ability is reminiscent of phoenixes but since he's your command he just return to the command and ignore the whole egg counter thing though he would ne more expensive
Grubbernaut and seshiro_of_the_orochi No never really thought of Boros as an option i did think of Jeskai but not Boros. As for Zirda, the Dawnwaker while she would help my phoenixes out greatly but have access to blue would also let gain access to flying support like Kangee, Sky Warden, Inniaz, the Gale Force, Sprite Noble, Windstorm Drake, Favorable Winds ect. As for Alesha, Who Smiles at Death she was my first thought as a three color commander but out of the 29 phenoxies she only hits 9 of them with her ability and out of ones I choose she only hits five of them so not sure if she's worth it. But Mardu does access to both recursion and flying sppourt just not the best compared if when with jeskai. But remembering Zirda means that Red White will be at minimum the way to go.

Always wanted to build an EDH deck with Utvara Hellkite as its cmdr. Probably won't be terribly competitive, but should be tons of fun :)

Atarka can make a pretty mean combat damage deck. It's not the best at interaction, but player removal counts as removal, too. I notice you're not running much green interaction, so I would suggest adding Nature's Claim and Return to Nature. They're nice and cheap.
Some upgrades could be Untamed Wilds and Spoils of Victory for Kodama's Reach and Cultivate. There's also Skyshroud Claim and Beanstalk Giant. Having lands that can ramp is really nice too, so I'd consider swapping some basics for Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland.
Bower Passage gives basically all your dragons unblockable (it's some really nice tech for dragon decks). This ca
Savage Ventmaw is an excellent dragon in my opinion. Helps a lot with the mana. If you have a Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient or Old Gnawbone that would be better. But the uncommon is good on a budget. Any one of these goes very well with Aggravated Assault or Hellkite Charger.
Now for the expensive suggestions. Xenagos, God of Revels lets you one-shot people with your commander while also giving haste. I know you may not want to be one of THOSE people, but if you put Grafted Exoskeleton on your commander, it also lets you one-shot people. Balefire Dragon and Hellkite Tyrant are excellent for completely wiping out opponents. Steel Hellkite is a budget alternative to those. The Great Henge is powerful in this deck by giving you draw, extra power, mana, and being a low cost once you have a dragon out. Utvara Hellkite is an army in a can. Gets ridiculous fast.
Some cards I would consider cutting are definitely the burn spells. Magma Jet, Lightning Bolt, Volcanic Fallout, Dragon's Fire, Banefire, and Atarka's Command may be good in other formats, but they fall short in commander. They aren't very good interaction because you'll often not be able to deal with the biggest threats on the board. Better cards for interaction would probably be Ryusei, the Falling Star, Rolling Earthquake, and Scourge of Valkas.

Hey bud. I'm a big dragon fan, and am trying play dragons in modern. However I run into a few issues mainly being Blue/black control, aggro control, and white blue control. I wish more people would try and run dragons. Some suggestions I have...
Thunderbreak Regent pretty taxing for your opponents to remove.
Rhythm of the Wild good sideboard piece in my opinion against white blue counter.
Draconic Roar great removal piece for that benefits off of the dragon tribe. Good way to grind down your opponent.
Haven of the Spirit Dragon Good land for dragon fixing, but often more useful for bringing dragons back from graveyard.
Looks like you have a couple ways to cheat your dragons out, but you might want more of a ramp to get to them. Mana dorks can be a good choice, but a lot of aggro decks will take them out quick. Theoretically I like to have my dragons ramped out by at least turn 4-5. Anyways great build man. Hope it works out. I'd love to see dragons make more of a return in modern!

Hey, nice version of Ur-Dragon, but this is not aggro, it's midrange. That's fine because you don't really want aggro in multiplayer Commander since it doesn't do enough when you have three or more opponents who each start with 40 life.
Four mana even with Ur-Dragon cost reduction for Dragons is the average amount of mana you'll spend to cast your first spell which is high. You also really want a ramp mana source in your opening hand and 10 ramp sources is not enough to consistently have one. You have lots of powerful tutors here as well as Tiamat which means you could reduce the Dragons to the best ones and cut the subpar ones which will speed up gameplay. Old Gnawbone + Hellkite Charger is a Dragon win condition combo for infinite attacks.
The better Dragons:
- Old Gnawbone
- Hellkite Charger
- Hellkite Tyrant
- Hellkite Courser
- Utvara Hellkite
- Terror of the Peaks
- Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient
- Dragonlord Ojutai
- Iymrith, Desert Doom
- Goldspan Dragon
- Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund
- Morophon, the Boundless
- Scalelord Reckoner
In the place of other Dragons because of the high budget consider adding more lower CMC support cards?
- Esper Sentinel
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds
- Birds of Paradise
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study
- Ignoble Hierarch
- Faeburrow Elder
- Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
- Defense of the Heart
- Fellwar Stone
Good luck with your deck.
