Etali, Primal Storm is a fantastic Dinosaur card for commander
Carnage Tyrant is one of the better Dinosaurs
Guardian Project for card draw
Charging Tuskodon can be a massive hay maker.
Regal Behemoth for card draw and ramp
Ripjaw Raptor for card draw
Wakening Sun's Avatar is a very specific tribal wrath
Frontier Siege can give you either mana or a ETB fight trigger
Urza's Incubator to make them all cheaper
Sol Ring for mana

I'm ending up removing the golgari and selesnya guildgates in place of an Overgrown Tomb and a Radiant Fountain . I also removed Scepter of Dominance , Creeping Renaissance , Gaze of Granite , Brought Back , Aggressive Mammoth , Goring Ceratops , Thalia's Lancers , and Adarkar Valkyrie . I put in Thrive , Bramblesnap , Banehound , Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter , Sunblade Elf , Leafkin Druid , Birds of Paradise , Courser of Kruphix and District Guide . What do you think IMMG?

Brand new user here, brand new player (been toying with MTG Arena to figure out builds I want to invest in).
I've been playing around with Omniscience . I've seen the build that combos it with Overflowing Insight to make the opponent deck out, but that just doesn't seem fun to play with or against. Instead, I've been trying to play as many big creatures as possible and win the same turn in comes out.
Here's where I'm struggling: Omniscience is a big card, so I know the deck needs to ramp quickly. I also know I need to have a constant inflow of cards into my hand. Also fine. The problem is that, when I put together the ramp cards and the drawing engines, there isn't really any room in the deck for anything else. I can fit a few big hitters, and not much to protect me until turn 5+ when I can get all of this out. Here's what I'm running right now on Arena:
2x New Horizons
2x Mana Geode
The idea is to ramp, draw cards, get Samut, Tyrant Smasher out so all my big hitters have Haste and take the game the turn they come on. I know I'm doing something inefficiently, I just don't know what. Any help would be really appreciated here.

The thing about a Feather deck is that you want to use his effect as much as possible. Play any instant, targeting one of your own creatures, and you get it back at the end of turn to play again next turn. Sheltering Light and Adamant Will can then protect a creature every turn and cards like Dauntless Bodyguard become redundant.
Any creature with double-strike equipped with Run Amok and Sheltering Light could end up doing a lot of damage. You then have the option of aiming for a high cmc creature like Goring Ceratops , or something like Swiftblade Vindicator and more instants like Sure Strike . With Feather in the mix, I would lean toward cheap instant spells.
The idea of bringing in Battlefield Promotion is interesting. More so if you had Ajani's Pridemate or Gideon's Company on the field. The problem is that you need to fit a large number of cheap instant spells into the deck and trying to fit in too many strategies could mean that you fail with them all. Adanto Vanguard , as a stand-alone creature just seems far too risky - you have a limited number of creature spots.
How much control you build into the deck will always be a debating point. If you can quickly build a powerful indestructible attacking force, maybe you can run over a number of decks with very little control. The combination of Teyo, the Shieldmage and Shalai, Voice of Plenty could give you blanket protection, but is likely to slow the deck down considerably. Ditto for Ixalan's Binding , Prison Realm , Conclave Tribunal etc. I would tend to have some of these cards in the side-board and aim for a high-tempo, win quickly approach with an equal number of impact creatures and boosting instant spells.
Although I haven't play-tested the concept, I rather like War of the Feather M

triproberts12 Hi man, really appreciate the help as this is the first comment I've had on tapped out after using it for a couple of days! The point you make about Nature's Lore being in over Selesnya Signet I think is probably correct so when I acquire one I'll swap that in. I'm already running Farseek so I guess the decision would be weather to cut Bellowing Aegisaur or Onward / Victory for Sakura-Tribe Elder . Do you not think I have enough ramp (this may be the case)? Bellowing Aegisaur combos well with Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor and I think that Onward / Victory seemed very good at getting almost two double strike triggers for Gishath, Sun's Avatar . Perhaps I don't need this though as I have may enough effects like True Conviction , Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion , Boros Charm (if needed) and Goring Ceratops . Perhaps Blood Mist is better than Onward / Victory anyway.

Wow! A very expensive deck with a very high mana curve. The creatures all look great, although I would consider Shalai, Voice of Plenty and maybe something like Goring Ceratops. I would try to include a bit more mana ramp and reduce the mana curve, but with such great creatures wouldn't even dare to suggest something to remove.

True that. For the best decks, you gotta pony up. Oh, the eternal struggle of a magic player.
I took a look at all the Green/White creatures in Standard atm, and this is the list of creatures I would consider for a Dinosaur deck in these colors:
Priest of the Wakening Sun
Drover of the Mighty
Rhonas the Indomitable
Knight of the Stampede
Wakening Sun's Avatar
Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
Ghalta, Primal Hunger
I would consider maybe focusing on the lower CMC Dinos to populate the majority of the deck and have Wakening Sun's Avatar as a finisher. Your curve is a little wonky, and you'll want to smooth it out a tad.

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 (?)
