Good question!

Short version: Definitely! (depending on your DM).
1. Any DM can rule about deities in their setting any time they want of course. :-)
2. p. 33 PH: "Dragonborn owe their devotion and respect to their clan above all else, even the gods."
3. Choosing a deity closer to the Dragonborn's class or other background philosophies or alignment are totally appropriate as well.

If you were a player in my group, I would definitely allow other deities, but would want it explained in your back story. Why are you "such a rebel" from your kind that you chose a different deity than usual social norms would warrant? Is your entire clan this way, or are you an anomaly in your clan?

What do others think?
