Decks of dragons are always fun to play and I'll give my thoughts about the cards that I would take out, so your deck has 60 cards.

  • 4x Predator Ooze - This creature is very good, but it has 2 problems, first is the CMC. It has a CMC of 3 and you have to pay , which makes your early turns very tight, if you don't have a godly mana source. Also, it's effect is good, but rather slow, and in my oppinion it would affect your game plan.

  • 2x Voracious Cobra - sure deathtouch is always nice, but it'a a 2/2, for 4, and you're going aggro with your deck, so by turn 4 you can already have a dragon powerfull enough, so you don't have to worry about your opponent's creatures being very big.

  • 1x Rite of Passage - you already have some great enchantments that can power up your creatures, this card won't bring much to you.

  • 2x Snake Umbra - very expensive for it's effect. A card similar to this, that has a better CMC is Keen Sense.

  • 1x Magmatic Chasm - this is the other card that I would take out. This is a good card for evasion, but since your deck is very aggressive you can overrun your opponent with your big creatures.

With this you have a deck with 60 cards. These would seem to me the cards that I would take out, but this is only my oppinion, feel free to argue and share your thoughts.

Perhaps there will be an uptick in Basilisk Collars on first strike creatures? Maybe mono-white knight tribal with the collar to build-our-own Voracious Cobras will be a thing against all the agro decks.

Now that you have some quality lands, you can start weeding out the sub-par ones!

Find yourself a Rootbound Crag for less than $2 and your manabase will be even tighter. Fungal Reaches, Gruul Guildgate, Kazandu Refuge and Shivan Oasis are all slowwwwww and no longer worth it. You can cut them with your replacements.

Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds are no longer needed. You can either swap them for 2 Forests or a 1/1 split.

You can drop Indrik Stomphowler for Reclamation Sage. It's two turns faster and you won't accidentally blow up your own Enchantments. Indrik is mandatory, RecSage says "may," so the ability is optional.

Another super cheap pickup you should get is Ambush Viper. Unlike Voracious Cobra, who can be killed or played around, A.Viper is a surprise that your opponent won't see until they've already declared an attacker.

Iron Myr might be alright. Elvish Visionary would be great.

There are a plethora of new creatures (a year+ of product) that deserves consideration for this deck. Hit me up when you have ideas and I can make cut suggestions. I see 5-10 bodies that could easily be something else. You can definitely squeeze some fun Eldrazi creatures in here.
