LittleBlueHero on Speculation on new dinosaurs with ...

I think a reclamation sage or even a Manic Vandal type dino would be very on flavor.

We already have Deathgorge Scavenger doing great things against graveyards so I don't know that wed see the angel ability. But thanks to that card its on flavor for sure.

Flavorwise I don't think Mindclaw fits at all. Love the card but it just can't see a dinosaur involved in spell casting.

In my head Dinosaurs are beasts. They aren't magic really in any way so most of the things they can and will do will be built around combat and buffs etc. I would love to see them go after the minor lifegain theme they have going bringing in something like Ravenous Baloth type effect. They also need a strong way to close out games. Gishath is great but I still think an etb Overrun esque effect would be awesome to have on a dino like Pathbreaker Ibex. Really just more faux Lords that grant abilities and such like Bellowing Tanglewurm.

My favorite green card has always been Eternal Witness and while i don't think it makes a ton of sense I would love that type of effect on a dino, even if it cost more for a bigger body like Greenwarden of Murasa.

Also a large flier that can hold its own against the usual suspects in commander like Steel Hellkite would be a great addition.

So, to start with, there is a lot of beast synergy.

Krosan Warchief provides reduction and the regenerate isn't bad.

Ravenous Baloth is a great way to blank removal and gain life from it, as well as being just efficient.

Beyond that, I don't know what your casual meta is like. Fog/Naturalise are still bad in the main deck. That is what your sideboard is for.

Now I can't help you with Legacy, or Legacy tournaments, as neither are within my realm of knowledge, but you sound like you'd enjoy EDH. If you don't know, you pick a legendary creature as you 'Commander' and build a 99-card singleton deck within their colours, it's a format full of multiplayer politics, ramp, and bug creatures!

If you're interested there are more rules you can find

So a great commander could be Gahiji, Honored One, who encourages aggressive behavior and your opponent's to attack anyone else.

Some cool beast cards you don't have on the list are Canopy Crawler, Contested Cliffs, Ezuri's Predation, Fresh Meat, Garruk Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Godsire, Gruul Ragebeast, Gruul Keyrune, Naya Soulbeast,Rampaging Baloths, Ravenous Baloth, Soul of Zendikar, Spawning Grounds, Thresher Beast, and Wirewood Savage!!

Now I might not include all of these, as their mana cost can be quite high, and you can't always hit that Quicksilver Amulet, but EDH allows you to casually play a cool non-competitive tribe like Beasts with your friends and still had lots of fun.
