It's not too expensive provided that you have ways around it's rediculous castings cost.
My mono red all dragon deck packs 4 Dragonspeaker Shamans and 4 Urza's incubators and theoretically my dragons are 12 colourless mana cheaper.
That means you only have to worry about the red mana.
Or you can play green and add some Elvish Pipers in the deck (as someone here mentioned earlier), something worth considering (even by me, who rather keeps his creature themed-decks mono-coloured).
And if you are still too worried about your dragons being too expensive...Well, you have got to be extremely desperate but you can also add 4 copies of Ruby Medallion (wich makes your red dragons another 4 colourless mana cheaper). But I'm sure no one here is THAT DESPERATE :D

Tied with Hunted Dragon for biggest mono-red dragon, I think.

Damn. This card is amazing. Expensive to get out? Maybe, but there are so many ways around that. Maintenance cost? Maybe, but you'll probably win with one or two attacks.

Excellent. Simply excellent.

I ran this guy in a R/G land destruction deck as a late game beatstick, and he was more often than not how I won. It's really hard to respond to a win condition suddenly showing up or taking advantage of the tyrants' drawback if you have no lands.

Of course, this was back in the days of yore when stone rain and the like were actually feasible and not too slow. And also before everyone in my playgroup got all hurr type 2 tourneymode.

All in all, I love this card. He shows up and says "alright you worthless ape! I'm going to win you this fight, but you had better pay me tribute or I'll leave your sorry arse!!!"

This is the most destructive non-legend creature I've ever seen.

Zirilian of the Claw EDH is a turn-six bomb.
T5: Summon Zirilian
T6: Land, Search for this, pump thrice, 18 damage to the face. That hurts. Use burn to eliminate blockers.
Also, tied with hunted dragon AND Ancient Hellkite for biggest monored Dragon. I still like Hellkite Overlord though.

If you get the mana for it at the same time you cast this beast.

Reckless Charge
