mtgoracle- Nice deck, however, I do have some suggestions. First, if your alternate win condition is to have an abundance of tokens, you NEED Revel in Riches. I know it's black, but it is worth splashing some Swamps in, so you can also use the ribbons in Cut / Ribbons. My other cheap (mana cost wise) suggestions are Soul-Scar Mage and Harsh Mentor, as it's a lose-lose for your opponent. When I think of heavy burn creatures, 2 comes to mind- Burning Sun's Avatar  Flip and Combustible Gearhulk, so I would toss in both of those, maybe even 2. Great deck, keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help. Oh yeah...can you check out and help me with this deck please?

More dinosaurs would make Gishath's trigger more consistent, even though Burning Sun's Avatar  Flip and Verdant Sun's Avatar are underwhelming compared to other dinos such as the mono-color legends. Try cutting back on some of your combat tricks - they're dead cards without dinos. Just focus on a few with multiple uses like Boros Charm for double strike Gishath or indestructible creatures.

Another recommendation is finding a place for "fight cards" like Savage Stomp and Dromoka's Command which double as creature removal and a way to trigger enrages.

Definitely keep between 8-10 ramp cards though. Getting Gishath out turn 5 and swinging into an empty board feels great.

You do indeed have a lot of creatures, but you also have a lot of good cards. Try to think about what your deck wants to do. To me, it looks like it wants to 1) play a lot of dinos, 2) trigger a lot of enrages, 3) attack with a bunch of dudes for lots of damage, so here's some suggestions based on that.

Cards I'd recommend you take out:

My overall suggestions would be to keep aware of your mana curve and your color distribution. Take a look at your creatures and take out the ones that seem too mana-expensive for what they achieve. Keep track of what problems you encounter when you play. Do you struggle with mana, do you need more draw power, are you unable to deal with a particular matchup repeatedly? Then use that to make adjustments based on what you feel is working and what you enjoying playing.

KillDatBUG I would, but enrage isn't my focus here. I may, however, take out Burning Sun's Avatar and replace it with Forerunner of the Empire for both a tutor and repeated enrage trigger.

Would strongly consider Pyrohemia and AEther Flash as good ways of triggering Enrage. As it is, you only have Raging Swordtooth and Burning Sun's Avatar to trigger it.

Cards to pull:

Creatures- Belligerent Brontodon, Bonded Horncrest, Generator Servant, Looming Altisaur. Opaline Unicorn, Zhur-Taa Druid

Instants + Sorceries:Fateful Showdown ?, Enter the Unknown, Explore

There are some other cards that aren't that great, but currently you don't have the resources to replace them.

Cards to add from Sideboard:Commune with Dinosaurs, Kinjalli's Caller, Obelisk of Urd, Otepec Huntmaster

Other Recomendations:

Pick up the Huatli Planeswalker deck. It has Huatli, Dinosaur Knight who has great synergy with all dinos along with Burning Sun's Avatar, Sun-Blessed Mount, and Goring Ceratops which are all good dinosaurs themselves. And who knows, maybe you'll draw some of the dinosaurs from Ixalan that you don't have from the booster packs. Also, I'd recommend getting the Feline Ferocity commander deck from C17. It's the cheapest of the set, it's in your colors, and you can break it apart and use at least a third of the cards in there. Not many of the creatures would be of use but there are great commander staples and powerful cards in the the lands, instants, sorceries, arifacts, and enchantments in that deck. These two decks would be good options to help enhance your deck if you don't want to just go out and buy the singles you actually need.
