Good_knight Well I really don't know what you have so that makes things harder. I can offer some suggestions but that kind of depends on your meta. What is your playgroup like or are you talking about local game store? Do you play 1v1 or more?

If your 1v1 I suggest more spot removal. This should help you buy time to get your engine online. There are a ton of cheap options as white and black are good for this. If you have a local game store near buy, you might be able to do get these pretty easy. Afterlife, Swords to Plowshares, Blazing Hope, Crib Swap, Mortify, Profane Procession (this would be a good card for this deck even when you move beyond it simple trickets). Unmake, Walk the Plank, Go for the Throat. You get the idea.

Ok so some ideas for improving your creature pool. I tried to keep this pretty cheap. Dauntless Bodyguard, Chieftain en-Dal, Fiendslayer Paladin, Kinsbaile Cavalier, Knight of Dusk (A great cheap card for this deck. Just make sure you always have the mana up to destroy. Since it can be played at instant speed you can kill their creature after blockers are declared and damage is done. This is one of the reasons you should wait until second main to play nonessential spells. Lightwielder Paladin, Knight of Sursi, Mirror Entity, Pentarch Paladin.

Some enchantments to help out: Glorious Anthem, Behind the Scenes, Archetype of Courage, Archetype of Finality, Brave the Sands, Intimidation, Knighthood.

Artifacts and lands: Whip of Erebos, Fellwar Stone, Rupture Spire, Path of Ancestry Unclaimed Territory . If you want to splurge a little bit get an Isochron Scepter and put something like Go for the Throat on it.

This are just suggestions. Take all or some. On August 10th the new preconstructed Commander decks come out. In the past these have been pretty awesome for right out of the box. You can always tailor make them. They are normally worth well over the MSRP.

Also don't let the prices here scare you too much. They are just a generalization. You could go to tcgplayer and get better values. Even after you choose, they can optimize your cart to get a lower value.

Hey I play a lot of dinosaurs and main it in Standard competitive.

I would drop 2x Belligerent Brontodon, 1x Polyraptor (its to slow, you will never get 8 mana in a real standard game), 3x Ranging Raptors, 2 or 3 Snapping Sailback, 1x Vanquisher's Banner and lastly all 3 Blazing Hope (its to specific and you need to lose the game to use it) All of these cards are either to slow or to specific in their use.

That leaves you with around 13 free slots

ADD: 2x Ghalta, Primal Hunger I know he doesnt seem efficent cause of his 12 mana cost but his ability lets you drop him on turn 4 or 5 with only 2 green mana if you played right^^ 2x Ripjaw Raptor 4x Thrashing Brontodon 1x Carnage Tyrant 2 - 3x Trapjaw Tyrant for the nasty exile Ability ^^ (can wipe a board up pretty quick) maybe some Llanowar Elves or 1-2Blossoming Defense

3x Ixalan's Binding insteat of 3x Blazing Hope

I have a red/green Dino deck that does rellay well in the competitiv scene if you want to take a look at it Primal Rage (Red/Green Dino ramp)

Hope it helps and good luck brewing your deck^^

Hey I would drop 2x Belligerent Brontodon because u dnot get much out of it , 3x Ranging Raptors because you already need 3 mana to get it out so its rather expensive , 4x Snapping Sailback because its to mana expensive and Polyraptor is also very expensive but i think u really want to keep him in the deck no? ^^ 3x Blazing Hope is not really what u want. Ixalan's Binding would be better or Cast Out. my friend AutKingfisher has a really good red//green dinosaur deck that you could check out Primal Rage (Red/Green Dino ramp)

I would say -2 Belligerent Brontodon for +2 Ripjaw Raptor. The brontodon is just plain bad. -3 Blazing Hope seeing as how you have to be near death to use it. Much better to use something a little more expensive that van always be used like +3 Cast Out. Huatli, Radiant Champion is good but I'm not sure if she is right for this type of deck. I would maybe take her out for another Vanquisher's Banner. Anyone else have any ideas?

Instead of Kinjalli's Sunwing, why don't you do Authority of the Consuls? It's 2 less mana for the same effect, although you don't get a 2/3 body out of it. Also, why not switch Jace, Cunning Castaway for Warkite Marauder, Zetalpa, or Azor? Right now you don't really have a finisher other than attacking with lots of small, low-power 3-drop fliers, and Jace doesn't really help you with that. Maybe run Cast Out or a copy of Blazing Hope in the sideboard.

Note to self: Replace Soulfire Grand Master with a Wild Slash, a Shock, a Twin Bolt, and a Warleader's Helix. Swap the two Recumbent Blisses for the two Pacifisms. Have the Tarfires instead of the Fiery Impulses. Remove the Blazing Hope and the Erase for a couple Mudbutton Torchrunners.

I don't know much about Dinosaurs (I don't like the tribe), but in general it looks like you don't have a whole lot of ways to interact with your opponent. You need more ways to deal with their threats instead of just Lightning Strike and Shock, because inevitably you're going to come up against something that you can't remove with just those.

In White, you have things like Settle the Wreckage, Cast Out, Ixalan's Binding, Baffling End and, depending on what you're up against, Blazing Hope. Those are noncreature options.

In Red, you have Abrade, Chandra's Defeat, Fiery Cannonade, etc.

Those are just quick lists to give you an idea, but I would try and fit some more controlling cards in there. And they might be in your sideboard, but it's not listed so I'm not sure. Also, considering replacing Stone Quarry with Inspiring Vantage.

And here's a list of all Red/White cards in Standard that are/interact with Dinosaurs if you wanted to stay strong with that tribe:
RW Dinos (Scryfall)

Forerunner of the Empire and Huatli, Warrior Poet could be good includes.
