Champion of Rhonas
You may exert Champion of Rhonas as it attacks. When you do, you may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. (An exerted creature won't untap during your next untap step.)

Champion of Rhonas Discussion

While Champion of Rhonas does seem like an interesting addition, you would sort of need to focus the deck around him or something in order to make it work.
Like, you can't have Otepec Huntmaster in the same deck as Champion of Rhonas because they contradict one another. Why rely on Huntmaster's ability to cheapen the cost of your Dinos when Rhonas just ignores said costs when you exert him?
Walking Ballista would also counteract Rhonas because if he's brought out through Rhonas's exertion ability, he'll just have 0 Power and Toughness since you ignored his ramping mana cost.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc or New Horizons for more rampy? I'd drop white all together for this deck. I think you're running too man high curves, even when cheating out from Champion of Rhonas, what about some Dowsing Dagger too for sweet flip land? I'd drop 2 Thundering Spineback and 2 Verdant Sun's Avatar for the Growing Rites of Itlimoc and drop Onward / Victory for 3 New Horizons. Drop 2 Engineered Might for Larger Than Life , Crash the Ramparts or Overcome perhaps. I think you could substitute Pyramid of the Pantheon for Dowsing Dagger and have you considered the buddylands? Rootbound Crag would speed it up! I'd drop 2 Sheltered Thicket for it. Drover of the Mighty is a better upgrade than Naga Vitalist.
Cultivator's Caravan might fit here.

DashtheDestroyer I don't think that there's much room to fit a Champion of Rhonas. If only it had a bigger body for the 4 mana cost I would have considered it more. It dies to a good amount of removal, mind you that Lightning Strike is back lol.
Antwaan33 I do think Growing Rites of Itlimoc is a pretty sweet card, for commander. Only because it's hard to evaluate it in standard. Digging through the top four for a creature is decent card advantage but any card requiring you to have four creatures at the same time is a little easier said than done. Maybeboard for sure for sure..

Have you considered going full Naya? Cards like Sky Terror, Kinjalli's Sunwing Cast Out Huatli, Warrior Poet seem fairly worth it, and the land base for adding white is pretty good Inspiring Vantage and Sunpetal Grove
Maybe this is the deck where Champion of Rhonas Shines?

I honestly have to agree with your Samut idea. That gives plenty more support to an aggressive strategy, which they clearly favor. Mayael could also run beautifully in the 99 there, if only to grab blockers as fast-effects. I do think using the legend-dino is a bit risky for its high cost and mandatory Voltron style, so Samut would happily blend the styles!It's looking like they also have a self-damage subtheme, so mana-reduction stuff fits in for expendable early-game advantage, a la Champion of Rhonas and Elvish Piper.

I'll add it to the maybe board as a budget option in place of Chandra
