Won everything so far :) I did add some Built to Smash though

I'd take out that Built to Smash and Fervent Strike for Claim // Fame and/or Buccaneer's Bravado. Looks like a fun build. Good luck!

Hi I like the deck theme, I made one myself a couple of months ago :) I was surprised not to see Wizard's Lightning most of the time in this deck it casts for 1. I would recommend Crash Through and Warlord's Fury they work very well for making your wizards bigger and the draw 1 enables you to keep up the pressure. Run Amok could be a good alternative to Built to Smash due to your lack of artefact creatures.

There's a whooole bunch of cards that would do nicely in this deck in Ixalan. If you're looking for cards, start by buying packs and boxes from there (as that's where you'll find literally all of your dinosuar).

If I were building the deck, the first thing I'd do is throw out some of the unriliable or unfitting cards like Pterodon Knight, Huatli's Spurring, and Built to Smash. As for adding cards, I like the idea of Charging Tuskodon and creatures activate abilities when damaging players (psst, Gishath, Sun's Avatar). Lightning Strike and the like provide good creature removal, and Territorial Hammerskull have are good evasion effects.

Green would benefit the deck tremendously. There are dinosaurs aplenty in green, and it could provide some much needed ramp (more mana faster) and creature buffing.

Cards I would consider adding are Blood Mist (one of my favorites), Cobbled Wings, Thundering Spineback, regisaur alpha , Gishath, Sun's Avatar if you can get your hands on one or two, and Cherished Hatchling.

Just look around in Ixalan and see what works and what doesn't while you're playing. was and is my best friend when I'm looking for cards to add to a deck.

PS: Your deck is standard, not modern, unless you imagine adding cards from non-standard sets in the future.

BSmitt, the input is greatly appreciated!

Now, regarding the suggestions, I want the focus of this deck to be more of a burn deck (and somewhat of a wizard-tribal deck, for obvious reasons), so a critical mass of non-creature spells is supremely important. Hazoret the Fervent is a great card by itself, but for what the deck is trying to do, it is a bit clunky at 4 mana, and is a creature, a type of card I don't need anymore of in the deck. Because of that fact, Built to Smash is not a great card, because it does nothing without a creature in play. Fight with Fire is in the main deck because Lyra Dawnbringer is near unbeatable game 1 otherwise, and while most deck run her sideboard, an aggro deck thrives on game 1 wins, and match-ups only tend to get worse with sideboard, so I decided to gear myself for any difficult situation game 1 and try to adjust to the match-up on game 2. Now, the reason a card like Warlord’s Fury is in the deck, is to develop a "prowess count" to get for absurd amounts of damage with only 1 or 2 creatures with prowess in play. Most of the time, Warlord’s Fury into Opt into any burn spell can amount to 8+ damage out of nowhere. This can happen as fast as turn 3, and with cantrips, it will happen more often than not, giving the deck the consistency it needs to close out games before opponents can stabilize.

I like the idea, not fond of Fight with Fire or Warlord’s Fury in the main deck. To give you an idea here's my deck with a similar synergy. Keld Burn Upon Playtesting it went 6-3 against top 8 decks. The draws were stale in 1 of the losses and the other 2 went to game 5 and lost by 1-3 HP. At FnM I went 4-0 top deck. I would like seeing Built to Smash and as always with decks trying to clear your hand Hazoret the Fervent rains supreme.

I feel like red still offers more than blue. Red gives access to Fling, Invigorated Rampage, and Built to Smash. I'm curiuos how viable the pummeler strategy still is or if it can be used in some new way like with God-Pharoah's Gift (which I have to admit I've been on a bit of a kick with lately).

I do think Red has more of the instant speed pump spells. Built to Smash as well. Fair enough.
