So I'm looking to build some decks that can hang with competitive tables but also have a strong overlying theme to them that makes the deck fun and unique to pilot, like dragon tribal or +1/+1 counters or something. I've sort of run dry on ideas lately and I was hoping I might borrow some from you guys.

Jenara, Asura of War is really solid by herself, but with the +1/+1 lords and Doubling Season etc. she is a monster. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund would be really good if you do not want to go 5c Scion of the Ur-Dragon. I have seen a Doran, the Siege Tower big butts deck that was really competitive.

Same can be said about Ulasht, the Hate Seed, Rasputin Dreamweaver, The Mimeoplasm and similar proliferate builds.

Also, there are a good number of decks that are commonly played as good stuff, than can still be excellent in themed builds - Horde of Notions or Animar, Soul of Elements Elemental Tribal, Karador, Ghost Chieftain Spirit tribal, Child of Alara Enduring Ideal Enchantment deck, Uril, the Miststalker Beast Tribal, etc.

The problem you will run into with The Mimeoplasm or Uril, the Miststalker is that you are going to have to face the stereotype and if you do not have the power to overcome the possible Archenemy status it wont be a fun game.

You might have to be a little more specific. It seems like your idea of "themed" is pretty broad; which is fine; but really most EDH decks that aren't just "good stuff" will fit your idea of a theme. Which is basically good news: you have a lot of decks to choose from. Take a look at decks in my sig; they're all competitive enough and (as I understand it) themed enough for the present purpose.
