the first I would change is the Land base, that isn´t necessery if u havn´t the buget:
and take the 4x Clifftop Retreat reason: they are to slow for modern aggro Decks
If u play against arfifact heavy decks u need Stony Silence
A nice red Aggro card Rift Bolt
Other things like Damping Sphere would be nice against tron or storm, but bad for yourself.

Sieghart I think you're right about the Arch, and playing another Clifftop Retreat in it's place is probably more correct. However, my personal preference is a more slim manabase than most, and I was fighting the urge to cut to 21 lands anyway. The Arch serves as a decent compromise: always a land, sometimes gas. If I were going to a major tournament (spoiler alert: I'm not lol), I'd likely swallow personal preference and swap the Arch for a colored land, color(s) dependant upon a small handful of other changes I'd probably make.

Some land choices you might consider: Path of Ancestry , Fortified Village , Scattered Groves , Sheltered Thicket , Sungrass Prairie , Terramorphic Expanse , Blighted Woodland (ramp on a land), Opal Palace . Clifftop Retreat is good if you already have it. Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary and Boros Garrison allow you to go further on land drops and ramp. Sometimes, you will have to pay 14 mana for your commander, so be ready for that.

you have white cards in the deck but no sources of white mana. definitely need dual lands like Sacred Foundry , Stomping Ground , Temple Garden , Clifftop Retreat , Rootbound Crag , and Sunpetal Grove . you'll also want to greatly cut down on the number of expensive creatures you have, and add some in the 1-2 mana range. the best ones for dinosaurs are Otepec Huntmaster , then Drover of the Mighty . with only 5 instant-speed cards in the deck, Wilderness Reclamation provides little to no benefit.

once you've built the deck on this site, you can post a link to it rather than typing out every card every time. heres an example.

for your angel deck, i'd reduce the amount of super high mana cost cards, and increase the amount of lands to 24. the Armageddon isn't really ideal since you don't have any nonland ways of producing mana. for lands, you definitely need dual lands if you want to use cards with double white and/or triple red in their costs. Arid Mesa , Sacred Foundry , and Clifftop Retreat are the best ones in your colors. Pyromania and Cleansing Nova could be traded for Lightning Bolt and Path to Exile .

I can't deny that Merfolk and their philosophy did fit me quite well. I overall like combo mechanics, powering up, and things like that.
Also, I wish to say that I do own some more rare cards, which could potentially be helpful for future upgrades of whichever deck I'd get: - Hinterland Harbor - Temple Garden - Clifftop Retreat - Azusa, Lost but Seeking - Myojin of Infinite Rage - Scion of the Wild - Earth Surge - Novijen Sages - Sensei's Divining Top
Is there anything out there for me? Some pre-made commander? Is there anything out there that I could potentially create with my cards? Is there something that I could build towards?

I know you said no to tron, but I happen to play a tron deck which is different than the others, and I like this one a lot. It instead plays a slower, control game with countermagic like Remand , Condescend , etc and doesn't try to rush getting the tron lands out like the others and most notably doesn't play Karn Liberated . There's a neat combo between Mindslaver and Academy Ruins (well not for your opponent at least) provided you have the mana :)
Besides Ugin, the Spirit Dragon that I already owned (from a time when it was much cheaper) I didn't have to spend too much on the deck besides the 2x Wurmcoil Engine s, the tron lands, and Academy Ruins . Go to my profile to see the decklist.
If that's still not your kind of deck that you had in mind, then what about burn? You could build this fairly cheap. With a mana base consisting of Clifftop Retreat s, Inspiring Vantage , fetches like Bloodstained Mire , Wooded Foothills , Sacred Foundry and some Mountain s. Skewer the Critics is a new burn spell you can play in it too that you should be able to acquire easily.
