Cribbing off the Favored Soul, I've put together a bonus Spells Known ruleset here for Wild Magic and Draconic Bloodline sorcerers. Because the Favored Soul's major feature is getting new spells, these tweaks only give half as many bonus spells, but I think they feel pleasantly flavorful.

DRACONIC BLOODLINE: DRAGON MAGIC
Your connection to dragons grants you access to a number of spells that emulate their power. The spells on the following table are on the sorcerer spell list for you. At 1st level, choose one of the spells listed for 1st-level sorcerers. You add this spell to your Spells Known, and it doesn't count against the number of spells you know. At 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th levels, you likewise learn one of the spells listed for those levels.



Sorcerer Level
Spells


1st
charm person, chromatic orb


3rd
dragon's breath,* suggestion


5th
fly, fear


7th
compulsion, elemental bane


9th
draconic form,* find lesser dragon*



*These are new spells I designed - check the second post for details

WILD MAGIC: CHAOTIC KNOWLEDGE
The wild magic that grants you power also grants you bursts of magical insight, though seemingly at random. At 1st level, roll d% twice on the 1st Level column of the table below. The resulting spells are on the sorcerer list for you. Choose one of the spells rolled. You add this spell to your Spells Known, and it doesn't count against the number of spells you know. When you reach 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th levels in the sorcerer class, you likewise roll on the corresponding columns, adding the spells to the sorcerer list and adding one to your Spells Known.
Each time you gain a sorcerer level, you can choose to reroll one of your previous spells, replacing it on the sorcerer list or in your Spells Known.
Your DM may allow you to add spells to this table from sources other than the Player's Handbook.

New Draconic Spells

DRACONIC FORM
5th-level transmutation
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, S, M (a tooth of the type of dragon whose form you with to take)
Duration: Concentration, up to 1 hour

You transform yourself into the form of a dragon. The transformation lasts for the duration, or until you drop to 0 hit points or die. The new form can be any true dragon whose challenge rating is equal to or less than your level. Your game statistics, including mental ability scores, are replaced by the statistics of the chosen dragon. You retain your alignment and personality.
You assume the hit points of your new form. When you revert to your normal form, you return to the number of hit points you had before you transformed. If you revert as a result of dropping to 0 hit points, any excess damage carries over to your normal form. As long as the excess damage doesnít reduce your normal form to 0 hit points, you arenít knocked unconscious.
You are limited in the actions you can perform by the nature of your new form, and you canít cast spells. Your gear melds into the new form. You canít activate, use, wield, or otherwise benefit from any of your equipment.

Design Notes: This is obviously just polymorph with dragons. I like the idea of a dragon sorcerer getting the ability to transform into a dragon, but as it is, there's no way to do that until level 17. Transforming into a wyrmling is pretty lackluster - it doesn't really feel like a dragon - so I went with young dragons, whose CR caps out one level after you'd get this spell.


DRAGON'S BREATH
2nd-Level Evocation
Casting Time: 1 action
Range: Self
Components: V, M (100 gp worth of dragon scales)
Duration: 1 minute

You imbue your breath with magical energy. While this spell is in effect, you gain a breath attack, whose damage type you choose from the following table:



Damage
[B[Saving Throw]


Acid
Dexterity


Cold
Constitution


Fire
Dexterity


Lightning
Dexterity


Poison
Constitution



As a bonus action on your turn, you can exhale at a target within 30 feet. The target takes 2d6 damage on a failed save, or no damage on a successful save.
The effect of the spell ends after the duration has expired or after you have used the breath attack 3 times, whichever comes first.
At Higher Levels. When you use a spell slot of 4th level or higher to cast this spell, the damage from the breath attack increases by 1d6 for each slot level above 3rd.

Design Notes: I considered actually granting a dragon's breath attack with this, but a) I wasn't totally sure what spell level it would be, and b) it felt like that was robbing the dragonborn of their one cool feature; anyway, someone else has definitely made that spell already. I used the potion of fire breath and scorching ray as my basis, with the cost based on chromatic orb.


FIND LESSER DRAGON
5th-level enchantment (ritual)
Casting Time: 10 hours
Range: 10 miles
Components: V, S, M (the eye of an adult dragon of the appropriate color, worth 1,000 gp)
Duration: Instantaneous

You summon a dragon with a challenge rating of 5 or lower from within range and bond it to you. If you begin casting this spell and there are no dragons within range, the spell fails, and you donít lose a spell slot. If there are multiple types of dragons within range, the DM randomly determines the type of dragon that you summon. During the casting of the spell, the dragon is drawn toward you steadily, arriving as you complete the casting.
The dragon acts independently of you and retains its nature and personality, but it is friendly toward you and your companions, and it tries to stay near you. In combat, the dragon rolls its own initiative, and its nature may require that you persuade it to fight. If you are unconscious, the dragon does its best to protect you as its nature dictates.
You canít have more than one dragon bonded by this spell at a time. As an action, you can release the dragon from its bond at any time, causing it to leave and travel back to where it was summoned from.
If a dispel magic spell of 5th level or higher, or similar magic, affects the dragon, or if you die, the enchantment is broken. If the dragon would normally be hostile toward you or your companions, it attacks; otherwise it leaves, traveling back to where it was summoned from.

Design Notes: There's no good way in the game to get a dragon companion, except the Chainlock's pseudodragon option - I figured a 5th-level spell for a weakish companion you can't 100% control is decently balanced against the next best companion, the Beast Master's.
