Drover of the Mighty instead of Druid of the Cowl
Remove Atzocan Archer unless you intend to use its ETB to give yourself bonus points with Bellowing Aegisaur. A better card for this slot would be Commune with Dinosaurs or perhaps Kinjalli's Sunwing to slow your opponents down.
I assume you're attempting a budget brew. I have no problem with the card Ripjaw raptor as another beautiful piece to play with Atzocan Archer, but if you have the money for it there is no substitute for Carnage Tyrant.

there isn't some sort of fast removal like Lightning Strike which is really bad. Also you may tutor your dinosaurs with Commune with Dinosaurs. you may put Kinjalli's Sunwing into sideboard instead of main.

So Growing Rites of Itlimoc is redundant here, it's a legendary for one so there's no need to have 4 of them, however I would cut them entirely, you mainly want them to pump out mana for your big creatures but you don't have enough little guys to reliably flip it, generally by the time it flips here you'll already have enough Mana that you won't really need it.
You have no removal in this deck despite running red which is a wasted opportunity.
You're relying on big creatures to flex on the battlefield but no real way to get them out early enough for it to matter.
I also feel like you're being a slave to your theme.
Here's some suggestions
2x Raptor Hatchling
2x regisaur alpha
1x Ripjaw raptor
4x Growing Rites of Itlimoc
4x New Horizons
3x Savage Stomp

Szavor You're my hero for testing this out! Yeah I run into the same issue! I'm thinking that Commune with Dinosaurs or Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip that let you go digging are the best method of finding this big monster and then throwing it at someone's face!

For sure if you are going the tribal route Commune with Dinosaurs is likely superior. My deck is like the complete flip of yours I started as dino tribal and eventually ended up with non tribal version that features the hasty Crocodile of the Crossing as the primary aggressor.
Funny how different metas can take similar ideas is totally different directions. Another synergy I considered building around was Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Greenbelt Rampager. You can draw quite a few cards off of it pretty early. But since I wasn't running an energy package the rampager didn't do enough.
Keep up the good fight. Ill check back in and let you know how I do at this weeks standard showdown if I make it there. Gonna run branchwalker and see how it goes. Here is the link to my deck at the moment. Good luck out there!

Hey, thanks for the comment! I can tell you that I originally played Resilient Khenra and Channeler Initiate but found Merfolk Branchwalker and Drover of the Mighty to be far, far superior. Regarding Prowling Serpopard, I am heavily considering giving it a try in the board, but I've been liking Lifecrafter's Bestiary so much as my anti-control card. Regarding Rishkar, Peema Renegade I originally ran 2 of him and 3-4 Verdurous Gearhulk, but it wasn't as good as going more dino-centric. Lastly, I don't think Shapers' Sanctuary is worth the 1-drop spot, especially going more dino, because Commune with Dinosaurs is just an excellent t1 play.

Hello there! I have a brother that made a Gruul deck for standard as well. When playing he realized that dinos were very strong, but had little that made them into a tribe. Rather, Dinosaurs are just huge value creatures. Other than Commune with Dinosaurs and Otepec Huntmaster (two easily replaced cards) you don't have a real advantage focusing on dinos. You might say Drover of the Mighty has a payoff, but the most important part of drover is that he's a mana dork. Consider Servant of the Conduit and Attune with Aether for otepec and commune. These energy providers also allow you to take advantage of Harnessed Lightning to kill off larger creatures if you so choose. Lastly, you might want to consider replacing Panharmonicon. I know that this is what made you want to make this deck, but as mentioned it is too important of a spot on your curve. I do have a replacement suggestion for you though. What about God-Pharaoh's Gift? With better mana dorks you can usually end up playing it turn 5 or 6. It comes down and can immediately provide a creature from your graveyard as a 4/4. Also, you still get double triggers off of your creatures if they died. This is what my brother did, and the deck becomes a little crazy. Just suggestions if you are interested.
