Any player may play creature cards with converted mana cost 3 or less without paying their mana cost and as though they had flash.

Might want to consider Aluren since the deck is so close to the ground.

Ok, so lost to Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves, not awesome, he really matches well with the fight though. I did manage to win all the other rounds, but seeded low right off the start, so didn't face too many difficult decks.
Switch Spike Feeder to Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista line that has a win-con instead of just infinite life, which is useless. This combo is CMC9 so it's not functional without further rework of the mana ramping. Can break it up, CMC3 for Heliod, Sun-Crowned and then CMC4 + CMC2 for Walking Ballista and Lifelink, but thats still CMC6.
Infect will still be line 1, refine some synergy around that.
Add infinite draw combos with The Great Henge and cats, likely Whitemane Lion + Aluren but there must be others. Fleetfoot Panther isn't too exciting, but we'll see, there are a few other cats like Fleetfoot Panther, only take on cats that don't suck as well.
Have to find a way to build combos with a cat, need a T1 solution? in selesnya? I don't want to take it Stax, would rather figure out how to stay combo.
I can't see any equipment changes other than the boots coming back in. Greater Good might come out if no combos with it, but I do like it for the draw, so maybe not. I've been looking at Rafiq of the Many and Uril, the Miststalker but don't see that as the right way to go, think the equipment package is correct. Sword of Feast and Famine still presents the challenge with Pro-green, but none of the other swords give me pro-black without pro-white/pro-green that are any good.
Need to get creative, might start a Arahbo, Roar of the World discord, hmm, need to brainstorm. We need some good white cards in commander, and some really high powered cats. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist and Leonin Relic-Warder the only really functionally played cats.
Thats the plan, lots of thinking and building synergies to work through. I'm playing it as is again (no Heliod and Ballista) this weekend again to try and get an evaluation of what is working. Strengthen the infect a bit too.

Why be overly complicated when you can just play Aluren ? Once Aluren is on the battlefield, cast Uro, let his ETB resolve, let his sacrifice trigger resolve, put him back to the command zone, and repeat. You get to draw your whole deck, gain a bunch of life, and put all (or nearly all) of your lands onto the battlefield. Not only that, but it's at instant speed!
Good deck though, just swap out one card for this for redundancy.

Some notable standouts from Theros that I will be testing:
Overall, these are some exciting cards that should spice up the deck quite a bit.

The two ways you can build a casual EDH deck are A: Play a handful of very broken cards/combos to enable jank and B: Play a pile of generically good, interactive magic cards. Dinos should probably look more like the former, while the Blightsteel/Eldrazi plan is going to lead to the latter. Case in point, right now I'm building Satyr tribal. Cheap creatures aren't great, but with Aluren , it's not so hard to go off. I'm not exactly sure how that would look for a dino deck, since most people choose Gishath, Sun's Avatar , but I can tell you that activating Mirror Entity 's ability for X=0, turning all your creatures into 0/0 "Eggs" is gas.

Sachora, Nature's Striving
Legendary Enchantment Creature — Demigod
Whenever ~ attacks, untap target attacking creature you control and put a +1/+1 counter on it.
3-colored gods seem antithetical to the devotion theme, but maybe something like this could work.

Hey, well made for your first Commander deck. Nice Aluren :)
You forgot Plains in the manabase? I suggest cutting 3x Forest and 2x Island for 5x Plains. This will give you 15 white sources in the manabase which is my opinion the lowest amount of sources to have for a color. Another option is to add more lands that can Fetch or make white mana: Bant Panorama , Ash Barrens , Prairie Stream are other budget playable lands. Whatever you decide my advice is play at least 2x basic Plains.
Whitemane Lion is excellent with Chulane since it can bounce itself back to your hand. It has flash which lets you trigger Chulane on an your opponents turns. Cast Whitemane with Aluren for infinite creature casts which with Chulane results in infinite draw/putting all lands from your hand onto the battlefield.
Eladamri's Call is an excellent creature tutor, among the best in Commander. Neoform is another great tutor, sac a creature you control to tutor for another and put it onto the battlefield. Swords to Plowshares and Beast Within are staple instant removal spells in Commander. Exiling any creature for one mana is very good. Destroying any permanent, includes a land, is versatile in Commander.
Eternal Witness is a staple green card for recursion in Commander because it can recur any one card includes a land. Guardian Project and Beast Whisperer are other sources of repeatable draw with creatures. On cast with Whisperer and ETB with Project. These can be backup repeatable draw sources if Chulane gets disrupted.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Overbeing of Myth
- Karametra, God of Harvests
- Kruphix, God of Horizons
- Agent of Treachery
- Tishana, Voice of Thunder
- Avatar of Growth
- Angel of the Dire Hour
- Hour of Eternity
- Forgotten Creation
- Primordial Hydra
The majority of these suggested cuts are high CMC creatures who don't interact with Aluren and some of them are five drops. My advice is not to play a lot of five drops because you already have the four five drops you want to play more than others: Chulane, Tatyova, Crawler, Muse. These five drops are also better than all the six drops therefore you could, cut all the six drops too.
I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.
