So, since I had a short day at EFRC, I decided to try again. I had such wretched luck that I'm not sure if I made the deck better or not.

-2 Anger of the Gods - move to board
3 Battlefield Thaumaturge
-1 Chasm Skulker - decided it was not relevant except when I'm winning anyway
+1 Commune With Lava - thought I'd try it
1 Crucible of Fire
4 Descent of the Dragons
2 Draconic Roar
4 Dragon Tempest
3 (+1) Dragonlord's Servant - seemed more than the Skulker
1 Goblin Rabblemaster - still only have 1
4 Hordeling Outburst
1 Hour of Need
+1 Keranos, God of Storms - thought I'd throw it in
1 Lightning Shrieker - because I don't have enough good dragons
1 Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker - because I have it and not enough good dragons
1 Shockmaw Dragon - not enough good dragons
3 Stoke the Flames
1 Stormbreath Dragon - because I only have 1
4 Thunderbreak Regent - still the start of the show

I totally changed the board. My first goal was to have something to board in that I thought might give me a chance against control. So the first half of the board is that package:
4 Monastery Swiftspear
1 Zurgo Bellstriker
1 Belltoll Dragon (hexproof dragon seems good against control)
2 Stubborn Denial - to keep a dragon if I get one

The rest of the board was:
3 Anger of the Gods - to bring in against aggro
2 Disdainful Stroke
1 Reality Shift - because I can only find 1
1 Temur Battle Rage - because it's good but I'm not sure how to use it

I played this version of the deck last night at FNM. Took match 1 against Jon Benison's casual Mastery of the Unseen deck. Unexpectedly took match 2 against Joey Beyer's pro-looking Abzan deck -- I drew well enough, and he didn't hit the right answers before the dragons descended. Match 3 against Lance's blue-white heroic deck (splashing red for Temur Battle Rage). Game 1 I had nothing, game 2 my combo worked, and game 3 I was stuck on 4 land with my 5 drops in hand. 2-1, third place. Not bad for a silly deck.
