I wonder why you didn't put Alta Palani, Nest Tender as the commander. She allows , the only drawback is that you have to use her tap ability and then chump block with the egg and have her stay alive, but then you could hit say, Gishath, Sun's Avatar and then have Aggravated Assault out and win!

Gishath, Sun's Avatar sounds like it would fit here.

So here are the suggestions thus far:

From yourself, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Atla Palani, Nest Tender, and Nikya of the Old Ways.

dbpunk suggested Xenagos, God of Revels (with another vote from triproberts12.

seshiro_of_the_orochi suggested Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma.

Vimozahr flew in with a host of suggestions: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, one or more Naya Dino Commanders, The Ur-Dragon, the C13 Naya Commanders (Mayael the Anima, Gahiji, Honored One, and Marath, Will of the Wild), any number of colorless Eldrazi commanders, and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed.

I suggested Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Kestia, the Cultivator, Tana, the Bloodsower with either Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, or Otrimi, the Ever-Playful.

Brutal_B suggested Kruphix, God of Horizons.

And, finally, GoblinElectromancer swoops in with Ezuri, Renegade Leader.

Not posting to provide opinions, this is just the ones in consideration.

Hello everyone, a friend of mine decided to give mtg a try and since in our playgroup we basically play only commander he asked me some suggestions for his deck. He likes big creatures and a straightforward strategy. The deck also has to be a on a budget since he would like to improve it gradually. My first suggestions were Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Atla Palani, Nest Tender and Nikya of the Old Ways.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Always happy to see more dinosaur decks. I found your decklist from your "Dinosaur Combos" forum post. If you want a Dino deck that is more oriented toward combos then i'd suggest you switch commanders - Gishath, Sun's Avatar is oriented toward one strategy - Dino Tribal Aggro. Definitely a viable strategy (especially with all the new dinos coming out in Ikoria) but isn't very combo focused. Zacama, Primal Calamity is the combo oriented Tribal Dinosaur commander. Some key examples of Zacama based combos are:

Just double checking rules. Say i have Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Cream of the Crop on the battlefield and Gishath deals damage to an opponent when i reveal a dinosaur and put it on the battlefield using his ability will it trigger COTP before i reveal the next card?

The two ways you can build a casual EDH deck are A: Play a handful of very broken cards/combos to enable jank and B: Play a pile of generically good, interactive magic cards. Dinos should probably look more like the former, while the Blightsteel/Eldrazi plan is going to lead to the latter. Case in point, right now I'm building Satyr tribal. Cheap creatures aren't great, but with Aluren , it's not so hard to go off. I'm not exactly sure how that would look for a dino deck, since most people choose Gishath, Sun's Avatar , but I can tell you that activating Mirror Entity 's ability for X=0, turning all your creatures into 0/0 "Eggs" is gas.
