Since you have tons of things at deal with counters Mayael's Aria could work well.

Bxbx : Very useful inputs, thanks a lot :D You are absolutely right, i am going with the enrage theme and hopefully we will get a big load of new dinos with enrage in January when we return to Ixalan :)

Shaman en-Kor: Seems to have potential, but i am a bit concerned that it wont stay on board long enough before its removed or has given any use, with the number of enrage dinosaurs yet. But will definetely get a place on my maybeboard and be playtested.

Breath of Darigaaz: Also a possibility, but i kinda prefer Tremor & Volcanic Spray myself.

Warstorm Surge: Will definetly find my old copy in my box, didnt even consider it being able to trigger enrage :)

Fungusaur: I decided to switch it out with Rite of Passage, for me it seems like an enchantment that gives the exact same ability to every dinosaur is better, and it costs less and harder to remove :)

Desert & Arena : How did i not think of Desert? Its an easy enrage enabler, once they are strong enough, sadly its in the end of combat, but still a good utility land. Arena

I agree with cutting Dinosaur Stampede was actually an add from looking up most used cards for this deck from :) I think you are right with the Haste enablers, its not really needed when it is Gishath job to put dinosaurs in when attackers have already been declared. So Samut, Voice of Dissent might get kicked out as well.

Mayael's Aria is really a card most would kick out, but for some reason i want to keep it in, even though in my own testing with a 80 card build it has never been useful. so it might get the kick soon, sadly :p.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions, you Rock Bxbx

if you're going for the enrage-theme I can recommend Shaman en-Kor to you. It lets you redirect any damage that is dealt to creatures to another creature you control. And the best part is that it splits the damage in several instances of one damage each. Credits go to TheDeckMaker2300 for mentioning this card on another deck page!

Another card would be Breath of Darigaaz because you can either use it as a simple enrage-trigger or as a medium-scale boardwipe.

Warstorm Surge lets you kill the opponents' creatures but also trigger your own creatures' enrage.

By the way, you missed the first dinosaur to be printed with a semi-enrage-ability: Fungusaur. It got an erratum to be a dinosaur just like Magmasaur who is a good enrage-enabler.

Last but not least, you can add Desert and/or Arena for enabling enrage.

You culd cut Dinosaur Stampede (maybe not strong enough for EDH), Mayael's Aria (unrelated to the deck theme), Fires of Yavimaya (I consider giving all creatures haste to be rather unimportant in this deck. you already have Regisaur Alpha and Otepec Huntmaster. maybe add Xenagos, God of Revels as well). Some of the smaller dinosaurs could also be cut as you are playing more as enough dinosaurs, but I know that this is really tough :(

That's all for now. I hope my comment will be useful.

Oh, and I'll link my own version so you can check it out:

Curious to hear how this deck plays for you. Seems to me at first glance like you have a lot of really cool alternative wincons, but that you are lacking the necessary meat to get you there. Example: You are running Test of Endurance and Felidar Guardian, but I don't see much lifegain other than Mayael's Aria, and then, that isn't helping you much unless you also have Etched Monstrosity out. This might be why people are recommending tutors, but I think you'd do fine to just streamline the thing a bit and flesh out a few of these wincons a bit more.

However, if you are finding that in your playgroup you can end up just cascading into Ramos's mana ability every turn and laying down this huge board every game... maybe loading the deck up with as much spice as possible is just the most fun way to play.

Either way, kudos on a fun list!

Aorosco14 do you have a preferred color or strategy in mind? budget?

cuz you can go for cards that just say you win by meeting certain conditions from turbo fog with Azor's Elocutors.... to self mill Laboratory Maniac... i got the biggest with Mayael's Aria and others?

aiming to combo out with something ridiculous like Altar of the Brood/Reckless Fireweaver + Liquimetal Coating + Saheeli Rai?

So far, I've gotten to play this deck once in 4 man multiplayer. It was insane. Beat everyone with Mayael's Aria with a 20/20 Winding Constrictor, heh.

I'm considering adding Eternity Vessel and maybe some pain lands. Does the vessel sound too win-more? Or, would I be better off with adding to my mana base with a Thran Dynamo maybe?

Pheardemons thank you for the suggestions! I'll definitely consider putting in Mayael's Aria, that sounds like a really fun card. I'll also test out Spidersilk Armor, that was a really good suggestion! If you think of anything else feel free to let me know!

You may want to include stuff like Spidersilk Armor so that you have a way to deal with flying. That seems to be a problem here. Mayael's Aria seems like a decent alternate win con. Another way to draw here could be Greater Good. I feel like you'll always be drawing more than you're discarding, plus it's a way for your opponent's board wipes to mean less.
