Ranging Raptors Discussion

I love and play Dino’s as well!
Some things I can see right away to consider are Ranging Raptors but no basic lands?
10 Fetchlands but only 8 possible targets.
I’ve found using around 8-10 Basics works well with Ranging for some great stable ramp via pings from Marauding or other spells.
I’d try out Solar Blaze , it’s worked wonders due to a pretty big number of my guys being bottom heavy.

It appears that Pyrohemia is your only way to damage Bellowing Aegisaur , Boros Reckoner , and Ranging Raptors , and Siegehorn Ceratops ? As a 4-of with no draw or search, I'm not sure I'd bank so heavily on synergizing with it. Manabarbs and Pyrohemia will draw a lot of hate. Do you think this deck can handle it?

Definitely get a set of Ripjaw Raptor in here, taking out Thundering Spineback s for them. Then for the rest of the deck I'd cut Rhonas's Monument , Thunderherd Migration , Adventurous Impulse , and 2 Ranging Raptors to play 4 Llanowar Elves , 2 more Commune with Dinosaurs , and 2 more Gigantosaurus .
Ripjaw Raptor is very hard card for red decks and other aggro decks to deal with. The reason for cutting the Monument, Ranging Raptors, and Thunderherd Migration is because there's less need for the slower, more reliable ramp when you're not playing a 7 mana dino. With the changes above, your curve will top out at 5 (discounting Ghalta) which means getting to that mana count faster is more important, hence the 4 Llanowar Elves .

Another thing with proliferate incrementing over the long game is that you usually don't have that many expensive creatures. One of the problems mentioned was not having anything to do with the mana, but that's because you're playing Nissa which isn't a strict requirement for the rest of the deck to function well; adding in mana sinks is a third-order consideration, which I would say is too much before seeing real matches. The mana from Yang won't come in such a rush; he's a lot better for just laying out more of your small dudes (so you will want more draw) and then dumping the occasional Celebration on them.
Yang is awesome awesome awesome with vigilance.
Evolution Sage is a beast. The problem is that despite grabbing a bunch of land cards, there's nothing accelerating them coming into play early game; it becomes circular to have Nissa's ultimate be the one doing this. I would add 4x Evolving Wilds for sure and maybe do Ranging Raptors instead of Triumph.
Shalai, Voice of Plenty looks neat.
Promotion is a neat trick but not really necessary when your guys are just large. I know you like Mileva but I would replace it and Pridemate with 4x Sunhome Stalwart .
You'll be surprised how much weight the Apparition will pull on its own; it feels like four proliferators might be overkill. If you don't end up going with instant-speed land-drops, 2x Vivien, Champion of the Wilds would improve the Raptor. Vivien is also hilarious when Oketra is out.
Sidenote I don't think the rules let Celebration trigger Pridemate more than once.
