Sky Terror Discussion

4 Sky Terror 4 Nest Robber and then cut Thrash of Raptors and Imperial Aerosaur as far as enchantment hate is concerned, 4 Forsake the Worldly is fine to run in the mainboard since it basically says pay 2 draw a card. I would cut Demolish completely.

I think Kinjalli's Caller could be replaced by Raptor Hatchling for the enrage mechanic. That would also really help your mana base because it heavily reduces your reliance on white mana. If you reduce your Sky Terror and Deathgorge Scavenger count by 1 you could run a full set of Raptor Hatchling. Swap 3 Forests for 3 of your double lands (2 Rootbound Crag and 1 sunpetal grove). I think 4 Inspiring Vantage is a bit heavy on white for the adjustments I am suggesting. Might be able to swap those around as well. Just because its a good land doesn't make it the right land. I assume you need equal parts green and red on your first 3 turns. You could almost drop white completely.
Since your spells are almost entirely 5 cmc or less I don't think you need all the cost reducing creatures. Otepec Huntmaster isn't as good as Drover of the Mighty in a long game. You could drop those completely for more spells like Rile or Magma Spray.
With some minor adjustments you could really capitalize the enrage mechanic and have a strong tribal deck. Vanquisher's Banner could have good potential synergy for a long game and you may be able to slide it in as a 1 of card just for the off chance it comes in handy.

Sky Terror goes poorly with a ramp game plan. Huatli, Dinosaur Knight is a bit too expensive for what she does, although she's better. I'd drop the little flying nasty man for a four-six mana dinosaur like Raging Swordtooth or Burning Sun's Avatar or Carnage Tyrant if you don't mind the, uh, $$$ problems.

Why not run Sky Terror? It's really evasive and pretty decent to chip in damage.

You can use Savage Stomp to your advantage with enrage dinos. if you dont have/want many of those in your deck, consider cutting Raging Swordtooth . on that note, Raptor Companion and Tilonalli's Skinshifter both die to Swordtooth's ETB effect.
I would do 4 total of Drover of the Mighty . its a 2-drop 3/3 with an upside. you'll most likely have a dino out, but if not, its still a mana dork to ramp out the big guns.
Thaumatic Compass and New Horizons seem slow for an aggro deck. have you been having success with those, specifically? i'd say probably cut them for a combination of Drover of the Mighty and other dinos. maybe some main deck Lightning Strike or Cast Out for a bit of general removal that doesnt require a creature.
Lastly, have you considered Burning Sun's Avatar (had pretty good success with that guy), Ripjaw raptor (price tag sucks, but the dude is good), Kinjalli's Sunwing , or Imperial Aerosaur (a well-timed, surprise flying dino bomb can close a game)?? if you're going low-to the ground aggressive some other worthy considerations are Sky Terror, Nest Robber, Metallic Mimic, Raptor Hatchling , Territorial Hammerskull, Rampaging Ferocidon, Bonded Horncrest (not in love with him, but not terrible with low curve aggro), Thrash of Raptors, and Dinosaur Stampede. i was rocking a RW dino aggro list and got top 8 at FNM at my LGS. changed the list so much and went Naya, so the relevance isnt there as much. worth noting that low-curve aggro dinos are actually playable. Nest Robber was mvp.

I also build a Gishath deck and I can recommend Reinforcements, to cast in response to the Gishath trigger. Also Sky Terror may be almost unblockable but deals not enough damage without support.I don't know how competitive your group is, but you can still take a look at my own Gishath deck: Groaaarrr!

Hi there. There are a few things that I think you could definitely change about the deck, to make it a bit more synergistic and consistent.
In any deck running Kinjalli's Caller, you want all of your creatures to be dino's. Not only that, you want all of those dino's to reap the benefits of K-caller, by costing 1 less to cast. Sky Terror, Glorybringer, Captain Lannery Storm and Wily Goblin don't fit that requirement, and I would strongly recommend taking them out of the deck. They might seem like good cards to have in the deck because they're good cards in general, but I promise, they don't belong. There are other, better options.
I see you have Rampaging Ferocidon in the mainboard. This is a really good card, and you're smart to run it, but it really is more of a sideboard piece. Even if it's typically good against your local meta, I would still advise that you put it into the sideboard. Against some decks, it's basically a 3/3 for 3. Not what you want to be doing.
The fact that you're play boros colors makes ramping a lot more difficult. Also, it means that you don't have access to some of the best dino's that Ixalan has to offer. Still, we can make it work. Otepec Huntmaster is a great card, you should be running a playset. Also, as far as good dino's that could replace all of the cards that I suggested you take out, Burning Sun's Avatar might be okay. It seems good, Searing Blaze on a 6/6 for 6, and it might be discounted by K-caller and huntmaster. Also, if you feel bold enough, your top end could be Wakening Sun's Avatar. It probably won't be great, as you're really light on ramp and a decent curve without green, but give it a go and see if it's good.
Hope this helps, good luck.

I feel that Rampaging Ferocidon doesn't belong in this shell as it want more tokens to ping the opponent than your few creatures. Maybe even try the other Huatli, Dinosaur Knight Planeswalker! Another viable Rare/Mythic replacement could be Combustible Gearhulk (for more gas) or Burning Sun's Avatar
Even though not a dino, I would look into Dauntless Aven as a means to protect your Huatli, by giving your big creatures Pseudo vigilance.
I would try these changes for a bigger punch through:
-1 Sky Terror (You already want to get to late game as soon as possible so you can skip 1)
+1-2 Huatli's Spurring (with the other Huatli, it makes this spell even better!)
