cdkime Losing a "win" condition in this deck is not at all a problem. It's definitely not meant to win. Cutting Laboratory Maniac and Necropotence for the cards you've mentioned is a great idea. I've also cut Cromat for Wood Elemental.
Thank you muchly for your suggestions. Making this deck the worst of the absolute worst is the end goal.

I also remembered another couple of cards which might be worth adding:
Ebon Praetor. Besides having one of the stranger card arts in the game, the card also places -2/-2 counters on itself (you heard that right! Not two -1/-1 counters, but one -2/-2 counter!), and can place +1/0 counters on itself (with a synergy that your deck does not have).
As for what to cut, I agree with cutting Teferi--I think he is too good for this deck. Norin I think fits well with the theme of this deck--he is a card with potential to be powerful, but only if carefully built around. I would be disinclined to cut him.
I would say cut Laboratory Maniac, as he is a powerful card, but then one of your few ways to win disappears. I do not think Cromat is necessarily a bad card, as it gives you tremendous utility. Sure, its casting cost is difficult, and keeping the mana open for it can be a pain, but it is still a decent enough card. Necropotence is easily among the best cards ever printed--there is a reason the thing is banned in Legacy and restricted in Vintage. I do not think it has any place in this deck.

It would be cool to see a 5 color dino with a Cromat set of abilities. Have one ability for each color that benefitted dinos on the field or something. I feel Gishath, Sun's Avatar is great for what it does but it doesn't feel like a lord really.
1W: Target Dinosaur you control gain first strike until the end of turn.
1U: Target Dinosaur you control gains flying until the end of turn.
1B: Target Dinosaur you control gains deathtouch until the end of turn.
1R: Target Dinosaur you control gains menace until the end of turn.
1G: Target Dinosaur you control gets +1/+1 until the end of turn.
WUBRG: Dinosaurs you control get +1/+1 and gain first strike, flying, deathtouch and menace until the end of turn.
I know thats a lot going on on one card but if im gonna speculate im going all out! Whatever the card is can target itself with the abilities meaning its not totally wasted if you have no other dinos on board.

I have thought about this so hard. I'm considering Cromat for coverage. I need to find a good control commander (preferably not grixis because there's a lot in my meta, though I like the idea of Crosis, the Purger). I just don't know what commander or colors to use.

If you're looking for a replacement commander to make it legal, I hear you on Child of Alara being overdone.
I recommend Ramos, Dragon Engine. You seem to have a fair-ish amount of multicolored cards, as well as you can put in more to make it more multicolored to fulfill his ability.
Mostly I mean this to remove those counters and have a very good mana ramp.
ALTERNATIVELY, you could replace those creatures with some more Elementals, and make a really good use out of Horde of Notions, though that would make the deck more of an Elemental Tribal, than what you're going for.
Other than that, I can't think of any useful legal commanders for this deck, but I do like the card you currently illegally have as your commander, and the deck idea itself!

Oh I see... then how about Cloudstone Curio + any 2x creatures (like Cromat + Atogatog) + Deadeye Navigator + Ramos, Dragon Engine = Infinite of all colors but blue. I was brainstorming a deck like this, that's what drew me in originally. You can check it out for more potential ideas.
