Creature — Lizard Beast
Whenever a permanent you control is turned face up, you may return Deathmist Raptor from your graveyard to the battlefield face up or face down.
Megamorph (You may cast this card face down as a 2/2 creature for . Turn it face up at any time for its megamorph cost and put a +1/+1 counter on it.)
Deathmist Raptor Discussion

Phule451 yea, I thought all night about a combo with zoetic cavern, turn a land to hand, play it for free with cost reducers and sacrify the Deathmist Raptor with some altar and which returns to play when you cast again the cavern.
Long story short, a 1000000 cards combo which probably won' work, but I'll add the cavern as soon as I put my hands on one:)!

Also, Aspect of Hydra is a cheap staple in mono-G devotion style decks.

Mono green stompy is competitive (in some metas). Aspect of Hydra or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx etc. Similarly, there are a bunch of ramp decks that look to play 4/5 drops, with Leyline of Abundance offering a lot to that.
Carnage Tyrant is a solid anti-control card. Deathmist Raptor is likely consigned to weird morph/cloudshift/reanimator brews. Imperiosaur is the most solid of the modern dinos- and underwhelming. Territorial Allosaurus is flat better and still not great. Runic Armasaur or shaper's sanctuary might be sideboard-worthy.
I could see a Wayward Swordtooth/Ranging Raptors setup existing, but I doubt it would be budget by any means.

Staizer - Get ready for a long response:
I did look at the same list as you did, but as a longtime morph player, this deck is a disappointment. I've already made my thoughts on Kadena clear so I'll make that response short.
A bland Sultai value engine that brings nothing new to the table. She isn't a bad card by any means, but she doesn't address any of morph's biggest weaknesses. I'd still play Animar, Soul of Elements , Kruphix, God of Horizons , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and maybe even the new Bant brawl commander over her.
The choice of morph/manifest related reprints
Some fine inclusions. Ixidron , Stratus Dancer , and Vesuvan Shapeshifter are nice, but they chose to exclude most of the best morph/manifest related cards: Dream Chisel , Ixidor, Reality Sculptor , Whisperwood Elemental , Riptide Entrancer , Voidmage Prodigy , Voidmage Apprentice , Aphetto Runecaster , Primordial Mist , Obscuring AEther , Unblinking Bleb , Weaver of Lies , Brine Elemental (though this one actually makes sense), and even Backslide . I would never expect all or even most of those to make it into the deck, but a couple would've been nice and would've made more sense than something like Deathmist Raptor or Silumgar Assassin .
Only Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer are worth mentioning here. I know I sound like a broken record, but none of the new cards help address the issues facing morph: speed and the fact that morph is a value based mechanic that requires a massive mana investment. Morph will always be a casual mechanic, but it needs something that reduces the cost of triggering morph, or something that allows for multiple activations (my hope was for repeatable Backslide effects). Neither of those issues were addressed by the new cards in this deck. I would've been happy with just 1 card that helps in that way...1 card.
Is this a good pre-con for new players? Yes. Does it have value? Yes, though most of the value cards are only that way due to scarcity. I think many will end up tanking in price. Will it win games against the other pre-cons? Probably. Will it win games against even 60% decks? Unlikely.
So is it a good pre-con and I am being extra critical? Maybe, but this mechanic has had a special place in my heart for a very long time (Morph was first introduced when I was a little kid and just starting out playing Magic). I was excited to see morph finally get some needed reprints and support. Instead the new cards aren't that inspiring and the reprints honestly look like they just pulled up Gatherer, typed in "morph", and then picked some of the first things that they found.

Rare/mythic morph cards or cards that care about face down cards especially if from older sets. They are all good prices right now and most will spike if a morph Commander is revealed.
- Voidmage Prodigy
- Dream Chisel
- Aphetto Runecaster
- Ixidor, Reality Sculptor
- Riptide Entrancer
- Deathmist Raptor
- Whisperwood Elemental
- Aphetto Alchemist
- Vesuvan Shapeshifter

I think it'd be difficult to make it fast enough for Modern, but I can see Deathmist Raptor having some potential. If you discard one to morph a Gathan Raiders , you can then put it on the battlefield. You wouldn't even need to add red. Den Protector would be another one for a graveyard heavy strategy.
Zoetic Cavern would be a fun land if you're only in 1 or 2 colors.

Rampaging Ferocidon feels like its better in the side.
regisaur alpha if your ramping i think more than 1 would be better
Cherished Hatchling just doesn't do enough. its a 1 turn flash fight.
Raging Regisaur Seems pretty strong think you should give it a test
Reckless Rage Could be a good way to trigger Enrage
Lightning Bolt Just a great card
Garruk Wildspeaker Good if you want to ramp to big dinos also
Kessig Wolf Run just a amazing land to have 1 or 2 of in the deck
Birds of Paradise Just better than Llanowar Elves.
