True that. For the best decks, you gotta pony up. Oh, the eternal struggle of a magic player.

I took a look at all the Green/White creatures in Standard atm, and this is the list of creatures I would consider for a Dinosaur deck in these colors:

Imperial Lancer
Kinjalli's Caller
Priest of the Wakening Sun
Cherished Hatchling
Drover of the Mighty
Raptor Companion
Atzocan Seer
Deathgorge Scavenger
Kinjalli's Sunwing
Orazca Frillback
Ranging Raptors
Ravenous Daggertooth
Renegade Rallier
Rhonas the Indomitable
Territorial Hammerskull
Thrashing Brontodon
Knight of the Stampede
Ripjaw Raptor
Territorial Allosaurus
Crested Herdcaller
Snapping Sailback
Temple Altisaur
Trapjaw Tyrant
Carnage Tyrant
Goring Ceratops
Wakening Sun's Avatar
Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
Ghalta, Primal Hunger

I would consider maybe focusing on the lower CMC Dinos to populate the majority of the deck and have Wakening Sun's Avatar as a finisher. Your curve is a little wonky, and you'll want to smooth it out a tad.

I've played against some good Vampire builds in both sealed/draft and in standard. Adding in Cast Down is going to make that deck strong. I think everyone is going to need a good board wipe in the side board more than ever.

Green stompy is looking like it's gonna be scary. I've messed around with a build using Druid of the Cowl to ramp into Crested Herdcaller and then drop the Ghalta, Primal Hunger

I like to trigger Path of Discovery multiple times, and a nice way to do that is with tokens; and if Tendershoot Dryad is not enough for you, there's always Crested Herdcaller and Polyraptor.

Also, i am not sure wether you go wide enough for Strength of the Pack. If you wanna go wide, consider Crested Herdcaller. It is not particualarly good IMHO, but it goes wide for the counters.
