Jaddi Offshoot Discussion

Jaddi? Not land focused
Beastmaster? Not fatty focused
Crown? Not wide enough
These cards are all slow, expensive, and make you a target. They are also redundant to Ruric Thar to some extent, which isn't bad, but it isn't copacetic to the plan.
What do these have in common? They're affordable, they're creatures and they ramp you to your fatties.

What are your reasons for limiting yourself to the plant tribe? The only thing I see in here that mentions creature type is Luminescent Rain and Avenger of Zendikar. I like the idea of capitalizing on the avenger's landfall ability so, if that is the goal, you should focus more on it. Max out your Wall of Roots, Sylvan Caryatid, and Utopia Tree. That way you can ramp quickly to the 7 mana for avenger. Then you can also add stuff like Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate/Kodama's Reach, Harvest Season, Scapeshift and/or Khalni Heart Expedition. Maybe even have some other landfall creatures in addition to Jaddi Offshoot like Tireless Tracker. And of course, got to max out that Assault Formation. good luck with the deck

I like the looks of your list a lot! I love that you ran across the card Terminal Moraine, I didn't even know that existed! Seems like it would work well with Titania, Protector of Argoth, she goes well with fetches too but at least Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds also count. Have you thought about Storm Cauldron? It's something I used to run and had a hard time cutting. I also see you're running Burgeoning, but you're also running Lotus Cobra. I used to run Burgeoning but decided Exploration was a better choice, since I usually don't need that many extra land drops and Exploration plays better with Lotus Cobra. Another card I used to run that does something similar to one of your cards was Lifegift (it actually got cut for Retreat to Kazandu). I thought I would recommend that as an alternative to Jaddi Offshoot since it's harder to kill and triggers more often (assuming you usually play 4-player games). I'm also going to recommend you don't consider using Scryb Ranger. This card is powerful when used to activate tap abilities multiple times a turn, such as Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (who is especially powerful as the commander of a deck). Here, it seems like you're just giving a creature vigilance, which seems really underwhelming. It's a cute surprise blocker but overall pretty ineffective. Right now I'm running World Breaker as a blocker for flying, since it doubles as removal and is also likely to kill whatever it blocks.
Overall, the deck looks like it's going a very fun and powerful direction! Hope you're having at least as much fun as I have with Mina and Denn :)

I personally don't bother with the boarding feature of tappedout - my tappedout lists are the ideal version of each deck that I can trade towards.
There quite a few cards that don't really synergize that can be cut: Ixalli's Keeper, Jaddi Offshoot, Jadecraft Artisan, Howl of the Horde, Profound Journey, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Prismatic Strands, Darksteel Pendant, Scroll of the Masters. You don't need spells to pump up your dinosaurs as they're already plenty big: Buccaneer's Bravado, Giant Growth, Crash the Ramparts. Some weak dinosaurs can be cut: Orazca Frillback, Raptor Companion. My thinking is that you don't need the weaker cheap creatures if you spend your early turns ramping so that you can start playing scary dinosaurs from turn 4.
My ideal version of a Gishath deck would be something like: 37 land, 3 mana rocks, 11(!) mana ramp spells, 10 answer spells (removal, board wipes), 4 protection spells (mainly stuff that can keep Gishath safe like Lightning Greaves), 30 dinosaurs, 5 non-dinosaurs that synergize well with the dinosaurs (e.g. Forerunner of the Empire).

It's kinda hard to find good plants. Jaddi Offshoot maybe?
I'll build the turtles as soon as the last cards arrive.

If the dollar limit is arbitrary, and you could push it up some there are a few other gems like Nyx-Fleece Ram and Ajani's Mantra that can give you a little life each turn. I like the theme behind the deck, I think you can come down on mana costs with a chunk of your creatures and get some more effects to gain the life in spurts each turn. If you would like the idea, I think making it green white would really help too. Heros Reunion Captured Sunlight and then green guys like Jaddi Offshoot Grazing Gladehart and Retreat to Kazandu. Some solid lands to include are Radiant Fountain and Kabira Crossroads. Again if you add green these get even better with Selesnya Sanctuary Blossoming Sands and Graypelt Refuge.

Thanks for the feedback. I have reasons for the choices i made over the suggestions though.
Fireball was in before someone pointed out that I can tutor up valakut with Drift of Phantasms and it can get around flagbearers. Costs 2 more but at that point im infinite mana anyway.
Went with the gate over the cliffs only because of the gatecreeper, I keep switching back to the cliffs and putting in Jaddi Offshoot
As for the seas claim ill try playing with the sideboard for room
