Find a spot for Helm of the Host. It could combo well in this deck.

regisaur alpha and Etali, Primal Storm are prime subjects for dawning the helm. If Regisaur wears it, you'll get it AND another trample dinosaur each turn. They'll both have haste! With a Forerunner of the Empire on the battlefield, you could either put the helm on another dragon and chip away at the opponent each turn OR, if you know you'll be playing dinosaurs, you can put the helm on Forerunner and deal more and more damage each turn.

Deathgorge Scavenger would give you consistant life gain, but that's not quiet as good. If you have a Regisaur on the battlfield, you could opt to give each new Deathgore +1/+1 and swing with haste, but... why would you not put Helm on Regisaur???

Rhonas the Indomitable would LOVE the helm! The second Rhonas will activate the first Rhonas and they can buff each other!

While equiping Otepec Huntmaster and Kinjalli's Caller would theoretically make dropping big bombs gradually easier, this is a silly idea. The helm requires almost as much mana as your bombs anyway. By the time these combos would be up and running, you would have a dinosaur on the battlefield who is a better target for the helm. These combos might do well in a commander deck though. Your commander tax wouldn't matter!

I'm thinking of getting back in standard with a Dinasaur deck :)

If I were to build upon your deck I would add some ramping with 4 Drover of the Mighty, 4 Otepec Huntmaster, 4 Thunderherd Migration and have at least 23 lands.

For removal I would choose 4 Abrade(Lightning Strike works too) and maybe a couple of Reckless Rage.

For draw Commune with Dinosaurs.

And for the rest, Dinasaurs :)

Looks good so far! I love dinosaurs, they're super fun to play. Being a dino player myself, I have a lot of suggestions for you!

First off, I would suggest cutting some of the mana dorks, like Kinjalli's Caller, Knight of the Stampede, or Otepec Huntmaster. Although they can be helpful, I suggest cutting them to make room for better ramp. I also think cutting Priest of the Wakening Sun is a good idea; I didn't find him very useful whenever I played him in my deck, but maybe that's just me. Some more cards to reconsider are some of your sorceries, namely Anger of the Gods, Commune with Dinosaurs, and Sweltering Suns. While Anger the Gods and Sweltering Suns allow you to get the enrage trigger, I think they're a little on the weaker side. Not only would they deal a good amount of damage to each of your creatures (they would alone kill 9 of the creatures you currently have in your deck), they are also sorceries and are rather slow. Commune with Dinosaurs I didn't find useful when I playtested with it. As far as your enchantments go, I think Ashes of the Abhorrent, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, and Solemnity don't fit. It seems like you're worried about getting attacked and losing life, but as a dino player, you can't worry about those things. Dinosaurs are aggressive, so you need to put cards in that make them more aggressive rather than slow you down. Plus a lot of your dinosaurs involve +1/+1 counters, and solemnity doesn't allow you to put them on creatures.

To help you with these things, I suggest more ramp in the form of Kodama's Reach, Commander's Sphere, Zendikar Resurgent, Herald's Horn (sort of like ramp and card draw) and Mirari's Wake (the less budget option). In my mind, you can never have enough ramp, especially with an 8 cmc commander. I also think you need some more card draw, so I recommend cards like Elemental Bond, Sunbird's Invocation, Shamanic Revelation or Rishkar's Expertise. Both Elemental Bond and Sunbird's Invocation have worked wonderfully for me. As far as the enrage trigger, I saw you have Pyrohemia so that's a great start, but think about adding Rampaging Ferocidon. My dinosaur deck doesn't focus on the enrage mechanic, but maybe you'll find use of cards like Staff of Nin, Splintering Wind, Task Mage Assembly, or Bullwhip.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions, I hope I didn't overwhelm you. Great start though!

Commune with Dinosaurs might want to look at to cycle deck faster. Kinjalli's Sunwing is a must.

But I would go green red and put in Forerunner of the Empire and Needletooth Raptor great combo! Otepec Huntmaster, if you're looking to keep the dinosaurs cost low. hope this helps.

I would add Regisaur Alphas in place of the Raging Regisaurs. If you ramp right you play Alpha turn 3, Ghalta turn 4. Also, I would run 4 Drover of the Mighty and 2 Otepec Huntmaster instead of the other way around. I took my dino deck to a GP and did fairly well with these cards. Regisaur turn 3 Ghalta turn 4 usually makes them scoop...

Thanks Here are a few more i thought of.

Rampaging Ferocidon (prob one of the best dinos in game).

Kinjalli's Caller , and Otepec Huntmaster Lower Dino cost

Drover of the Mighty Creature ramp and dino theme

Thrashing Brontodon You really need some artifact and enchantment destruction. here is a dino that does it. Great card. 100% recommend this one.

i'd probably go full playsets of Drover of the Mighty, Otepec Huntmaster, Ripjaw Raptor, Charging Tuskodon, and Carnage Tyrant, 24 lands, and then as much removal as possible.

Otepec Huntmaster is mandatory. the only non-dinos you should be using are the humans that directly help the dinosaurs. Commune with Dinosaurs is great way to dig for dinos and lands, and Charging Tuskodon is very powerful. you also need some mainboard removal like Lightning Strike and Savage Stomp
