Specific Recommendations:

Krosan Drover

Llanowar Elves

Needletooth Raptor

Ravenous Daggertooth

Territorial Hammerskull

Thrash of Raptors

We want to make room for some cards to help you get more dinosaurs onto the battlefield faster, and to interact with your opponents threats and spells. If you increase your card draw, you'll still draw into enough creatures to overwhelm your opponent.

Add:

Forerunner of the Empire

This tutors for a dinosaur and can trigger your engrage abilities. Sick combo with Polyraptor.

Colossal Majesty

This is going to serve as persistent card draw for keeping creatures on board, which you aim to do anyway.

Guardian Project and/or Elemental Bond

Both of these cards allow you to draw a card when a creature enters play.

Unbreakable Formation and/or Make a Stand

These can have two uses: the first use is on attack, but it also can be cast to safeguard your board from effects like Wrath of God .

Eerie Interlude

Like above, this protects your creatures from board wipes, but also works against exile and -x/-x effects like Toxic Deluge .

Resurrection and/or Breath of Life and/or Brought Back

Losing an expensive creature feels bad. Bringing it back to the battlefield for less than its casting cost helps take the sting away.

Replacements

Cut Naturalize , add Krosan Grip

Cut Fires of Yavimaya , add Rhythm of the Wild

Cut Worn Powerstone , add Sol Ring

Consider

Adding Board Wipes:

Star of Extinction and Starstorm are flavorful possibilities.

Adding a tutor or two:

Finale of Devastation is flavorful and rewards you for going big on mana.

Upgrading the mana base: I would start by replacing the "gain 1 life" lands with the "scry" lands in Core 2020, which can be had for about $2 each. From there I might look at getting a Krosan Verge and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, and gradually upgrading over time.

What else to cut / Replace

I might nix Explore and Lay of the Land , and replace them with Domri, Chaos Bringer or Domri, Anarch of Bolas (which can provide mana and either card draw or removal), or Zacama, Primal Calamity , which you essentially cast for free (or gain mana from, if you're using Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun )), since it untaps your lands if you cast it from your hand.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful. I tried to stay on the lower end of prices on this stuff.

GL;HF! :D

Yeah, there's not nearly enough lands. Think of it this way: Lands are 21% of your deck, as it is now. That's the equivalent of running 13 lands in a 60-card deck or 9 lands in a 40-card deck. You're built around an 8-mana commander, so 39 is the minimum you should be running, along with, at the very least, 8 sources of ramp.

I think these 3 videos will be very helpful for you. The first two are videos by The Professor, one on Commander deck construction, and the other on building a 3-color manabase for the format. The last one is SaffronOlive on common pitfalls in deck construction.

Next off, what you'll want to do is look at the EDHREC page for Gishath to see what other people are putting in their decks. If you're on a budget, you can also click at the top right to go to what people are playing in decks labeled as budget. Remember to include card advantage, ramp, removal that is either flexible or hits the whole table, and haymakers that will close out the game.

As for cuts, I would start with 4 to 7-mana non-dinos, since that spot on the curve will get clogged up pretty quickly, and you want to be putting expensive dinos out for free with Gishath. I would also cut Atzocan Archer , Emperor's Vanguard , Frenzied Raptor , Looming Altisaur , Nest Robber , Pterodon Knight , Raptor Companion , Raptor Hatchling , Ravenous Daggertooth , Sky Terror , Steadfast Armasaur , Voltaic Brawler , Cobbled Wings , Primal Amulet  Flip, Abrade , Blossoming Defense , Demystify , Lightning Helix , Righteousness , Shock , and Slash of Talons . They're all either too narrow, too weak, don't scale up well with the creature size or life totals of Commander, or don't make sense in your deck.

Good luck!

I would recommend, if you want to keep green, use it more for ramp than you are atm. I would also recomend replacing Slash of Talons with Lightning Bolt, Crested Herdcaller with Regisaur Alpha, Two Huatli's Snubhorn with Temple Altisaur's, Everdawn Champion with Atzocan Seer, balance the land a little more, maybe some Dual Shots and Ranging Raptors for ramp and enrage triggers, maybe one Ravenous Daggertooth instead of an Imperial Ceratops so you can get enrage lifegain earlier, it's also more of an earlier bait target for removal which will benefit you. Also Regrowth, Destructive Revelry for your sideboard. Otherwise removing green, adding in more red like Silverclad Ferocidons, Raptor Hatchling and Charging Monstrosaur and the white and red Ixalan Avatars, if you cut out the green you could also lean into more of the lifegain aspect with some give lifelink spells on your fliers then you can chump block small boys with either face or enrage dinos.

Hello, Like the deck and giving it a +1 for Pyrohemia and dinos!

In your description your combo is not infinite actually. You need to add in your Drover of the Mighty for it to be an infinite combo. And your Ravenous Daggertooth does not need to be listed in the chain since it does nothing to help it go infinite. It does let you survive the combo when it does go infinite, however, so it should still get honorable mention.

I am sure this is a fun deck to play.

True that. For the best decks, you gotta pony up. Oh, the eternal struggle of a magic player.

I took a look at all the Green/White creatures in Standard atm, and this is the list of creatures I would consider for a Dinosaur deck in these colors:

Imperial Lancer
Kinjalli's Caller
Priest of the Wakening Sun
Cherished Hatchling
Drover of the Mighty
Raptor Companion
Atzocan Seer
Deathgorge Scavenger
Kinjalli's Sunwing
Orazca Frillback
Ranging Raptors
Ravenous Daggertooth
Renegade Rallier
Rhonas the Indomitable
Territorial Hammerskull
Thrashing Brontodon
Knight of the Stampede
Ripjaw Raptor
Territorial Allosaurus
Crested Herdcaller
Snapping Sailback
Temple Altisaur
Trapjaw Tyrant
Carnage Tyrant
Goring Ceratops
Wakening Sun's Avatar
Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
Ghalta, Primal Hunger

I would consider maybe focusing on the lower CMC Dinos to populate the majority of the deck and have Wakening Sun's Avatar as a finisher. Your curve is a little wonky, and you'll want to smooth it out a tad.

40fy on You Won't Like Them When They're Angry

Hey, I'm that guy who was building that wizards control deck. I thought you might be a fellow combo player when I saw your suggestions, glad to see I wasn't wrong.

Aside from any sort of discussion of the deck, the combo you describe here actually doesn't kill ALL of the resulting tokens. Assuming you let Forerunner of the Empire trigger at least three times or more, you will end up with three tokens per Raptor Hatchling, although I unfortunately must also inform you that you do not get infinite tokens with two Raptor Hatchlings. However, you can do better! Polyraptor can make infinite tokens, since the dinosaurs will grow exponentially instead of linearly, and so every generation will be bigger then the last. This means that even if one generation dies out, the next will be bigger and will create a bigger one yet after it. If an 8 mana dino is a little much for your taste, you can also gain infinite life with Ravenous Daggertooth. Finally, I recommend Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip as a good way to use the wide board you will end up creating.
