Not intrinsically, some cards may specifically call for creatures to be tapped, which they wouldn't bother doing if the fight mechanic already caused those creature to tap. For instance: Arena and Magus of the Arena specifically say to tap both creatures and then have them fight, so that requires tapping (though either or both of those creatures may already be tapped). Ulvenwald Tracker taps to make two creatures fight, but doesn't tap either of them. Nightfall Predator Flip taps to fight another creature, but doesn't tap the creature it fights.

Arena is just a very good option for making creatures fight each other, but with the added benefit of getting smaller enrage triggers. Cost 1 more than Ulvenwald Tracker but will definetely stay on the board for longer.

Bxbx : Very useful inputs, thanks a lot :D You are absolutely right, i am going with the enrage theme and hopefully we will get a big load of new dinos with enrage in January when we return to Ixalan :)
Shaman en-Kor: Seems to have potential, but i am a bit concerned that it wont stay on board long enough before its removed or has given any use, with the number of enrage dinosaurs yet. But will definetely get a place on my maybeboard and be playtested.
Warstorm Surge: Will definetly find my old copy in my box, didnt even consider it being able to trigger enrage :)
Fungusaur: I decided to switch it out with Rite of Passage, for me it seems like an enchantment that gives the exact same ability to every dinosaur is better, and it costs less and harder to remove :)
I agree with cutting Dinosaur Stampede was actually an add from looking up most used cards for this deck from EDHREC.com :) I think you are right with the Haste enablers, its not really needed when it is Gishath job to put dinosaurs in when attackers have already been declared. So Samut, Voice of Dissent might get kicked out as well.
Mayael's Aria is really a card most would kick out, but for some reason i want to keep it in, even though in my own testing with a 80 card build it has never been useful. so it might get the kick soon, sadly :p.
Thanks a lot for the suggestions, you Rock Bxbx

if you're going for the enrage-theme I can recommend Shaman en-Kor to you. It lets you redirect any damage that is dealt to creatures to another creature you control. And the best part is that it splits the damage in several instances of one damage each. Credits go to TheDeckMaker2300 for mentioning this card on another deck page!
Another card would be Breath of Darigaaz because you can either use it as a simple enrage-trigger or as a medium-scale boardwipe.
Warstorm Surge lets you kill the opponents' creatures but also trigger your own creatures' enrage.
You culd cut Dinosaur Stampede (maybe not strong enough for EDH), Mayael's Aria (unrelated to the deck theme), Fires of Yavimaya (I consider giving all creatures haste to be rather unimportant in this deck. you already have Regisaur Alpha and Otepec Huntmaster. maybe add Xenagos, God of Revels as well). Some of the smaller dinosaurs could also be cut as you are playing more as enough dinosaurs, but I know that this is really tough :(
That's all for now. I hope my comment will be useful.
Oh, and I'll link my own version so you can check it out:

Hi, first of all, this is an innovative take on playing dinosaurs in EDH! I like it!
Cards you might cut:
Dinosaur Stampede and Rallying Roar because aside from flavor they do not offer much. Dinosaurs are already comparatively large and don't need a small buff like that. The trample from Dinosaur Stampede is nice, but ultimatively it's not enough. I also don't like Titanic Ultimatum because the mana cost is really difficult to pay.
Elixir of Immortality is virtually card disadvantage and is only useful with strong library manipulation or tutors in your deck
Stuffy Doll does only interact with 5 cards in a meaningful way: Chandra's Ignition, Star of Extinction, Pyrohemia, Magmasaur and Fiery Confluence from which only Star of Extinction has a significant impact. All other pingers could just simply direct their damage to the player instead of Stuffy Doll. So maybe this is not enough to warrant its inclusion
Ok, that's all for now. Keep me updated about your list!

It may seem a little too spicy but have you ever considered a 1-of Arena in the mana base? Combos really well with Phyrexian Obliterator.
