I would replace Abundant Growth with another mana dork like Llanowar Elves, because it only lets the enchanted land produce any color, it doesnt ramp you, which is your main way of winning with decks such as this. Due to the mono-green devotion, I would drop Gishath, Sun's Avatar in favor of a big green beater such as Craterhoof Behemoth, even though it doesnt fit the theme it is a great wincon that affects the board immediately. I would also suggest some stuff like Leatherback Baloth to further strengthen your devotion plan. Personally I would drop all semblance of splashing red and focus more on the devotion theme, but if you do want to keep the Gruul colors, I would probably recommend you drop devotion and focus on ramp and board aggression, into a more mid-range styled list as opposed to a ramp list.

There's a whooole bunch of cards that would do nicely in this deck in Ixalan. If you're looking for cards, start by buying packs and boxes from there (as that's where you'll find literally all of your dinosuar).
If I were building the deck, the first thing I'd do is throw out some of the unriliable or unfitting cards like Pterodon Knight, Huatli's Spurring, and Built to Smash. As for adding cards, I like the idea of Charging Tuskodon and creatures activate abilities when damaging players (psst, Gishath, Sun's Avatar). Lightning Strike and the like provide good creature removal, and Territorial Hammerskull have are good evasion effects.
Green would benefit the deck tremendously. There are dinosaurs aplenty in green, and it could provide some much needed ramp (more mana faster) and creature buffing.
Cards I would consider adding are Blood Mist (one of my favorites), Cobbled Wings, Thundering Spineback, regisaur alpha , Gishath, Sun's Avatar if you can get your hands on one or two, and Cherished Hatchling.
Just look around in Ixalan and see what works and what doesn't while you're playing. was and is my best friend when I'm looking for cards to add to a deck.
PS: Your deck is standard, not modern, unless you imagine adding cards from non-standard sets in the future.

In my Gishath deck I run Vizier of the Menagerie and Prowling Serpopard not exactly tribal but they help with getting your dinos out on the field. Helm of the Host is also good to have, whether attached to Gishath, Sun's Avatar or Etali, Primal Storm is always a fun time.
There is also an argument to be made for Xenagos, God of Revels for all your Gishath trigger needs.

Isamaru, Hound of Konda, Uril, the Miststalker, and Gishath, Sun's Avatar are all pretty aggro too and have garnered pretty nasty reputations. I remember hitting someone for Commander damage on turn 5 with Until :)

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is theoretically one of the meanest I've seen. Releases with battlebond.

if you want to pursue the idea of a more dino-based zacama, a few cards you might want to try are Charging Monstrosaur, Bellowing Aegisaur, Cherished Hatchling, Etali, Primal Storm, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Goring Ceratops , Kinjalli's Sunwing, Polyraptor, Raging Swordtooth, Regisaur Alpha, Temple Altisaur, Wakening Sun's Avatar, and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn. I didn't actually check how expensive these are but i assume they're not too hard on the wallet (?)

Yeah, there's a lot of annoying creature decks in my meta. It's hilarious to see my friends forget about it and activate Krenko, Mob Boss or swing with Gishath, Sun's Avatar only to lose their whole board.
