berserkalucard on Gishath, Primal Naya God

@Forsaken - I've not had a chance to playtest it much, only a couple games and it does seem painfully slow. I'm thinking of some low ramp mana dorks or rocks. The times I've been swinging in with Gishath, Sun's Avatar I've been missing hitting a lot of the dinos and just seeing goodstuff instead. So I'm thinking I need to focus more on comboing or voltronning with Gishath, or wait till Rivals of Ixalan for more dino support. Just at this point there's not a great selection

Okay lemme just say that I looove this deck and it has quite a fun theme to go with it. Most of my games have ended with just throwing Gishath, Sun's Avatar out onto the field and flooding the board with dinos. It'd be great if Magic had more dinos for much more synergies in this deck.

I have a 3 colored dinosaur deck (Naya) like you said. I am very satisfied with it only because of the white dinosaurs that you could add Gishath, Sun's Avatar which is amazing if you can get him out. I would highly recommend you adding the white. +1 for dinos

I think Samut, the Tested may be a good addition to your deck as well, since it provides insane synergy with dinosaur tribal and helps with getting the Gishath, Sun's Avatar as soon as possible like you said. A very interesting deck to build though.

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it. I was thinking about using Star of Extinction + Heroic Intervention as a potential combo, as well as putting Boros Charm in there as another way to protect my dinos. In terms of removal, I only have Terminus in there as a complete board wipe, largely because it would bury my dinos rather than send them to the graveyard, at which point Gishath, Sun's Avatar would still be able to retrieve them. After running a couple simulations, I agree, I need some additional card draw; Mind's Eye and Elemental Bond are two that I am absolutely going to work in.

As for Reverberate my main reason for having it in the deck is twofold. First, it gives me a small amount of protection against counter-spells, so I can hold it until I am ready to cast something potentially game-winning to ensure that the spell goes off. Second, if I am not playing against a control deck, I can use it to tutor since I am out of black. Beyond that, it can also serve a utility purpose of being additional ramp or spot removal as a two cost.

Berserkers' Onslaught, Stranglehold, and Elixir of Immortality are all cards that I have been extremely wish-washy over. Ultimately, I think you are right; they are probably cards that would be best served as a sideboard depending on the meta. Chaosphere seems like a great addition over any of those three. I might also include something like a Whispersilk Cloak to make sure my commander gets through to trigger its ability.

Again, I appreciate the input.

Thanks ArcticPhreeze and Aaerys :)

The suggestions seem very valid - what would you recommend I swap out to deal with the mentioned problems?

I am open to rehauling the entire deck if need be - the general idea was to ramp into strong dinos (such as Gishath, Sun's Avatar) early, and have things like Commune with Dinosaurs for hand-and-land fixing if need be.

I'm quite new to deckbuilding, only having started MTG properly a month ago.

I feel like the only reason to run white is Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Huatli, Warrior Poet. There should definitely at least one of each in the main if your going to use white. I'd probably drop white altogether otherwise. Kinjalli's Caller and Kinjalli's Sunwing don't seem necessary to me. Good list though. I've been trying to come up with something similar. I just can seem to get white to fit in with the stuff I want to do.
