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!

Out

Maybe Out

In

You're missing a bunch of the best dinosaur cards in my opinion

Maybe In

That gets you no where near where you need to be. To me you have too many enchantments might look there more.

Did the Sky Terror change work well? I had some other thoughts moving along with the build you were starting with.

It seems a bit overdone on the red mana since none of your red costs more than 1 red mana+(other), and most of your deck is white. I'd drop the 2 guildgates at a minimum and put in plains, and I'd also add another plains to your deck, as it looks a little mana light.

If you'd like the mentor thing to work out a bit better, you need to beef up your Aurelia and "possibly" Boros Challenger in order to get their buffs going for you. Consider dropping another mountain or two and adding a couple Guildmages' Forum for a free buff for Aurelia. I would consider Candlelight Vigil, or some easy cast equipment to help out... Jousting Lancegets first strike with that too, good for mentors who often have more power than toughness. Dowsing Dagger  FlipForebear's Blade are other decent options.

I also think the History play is neat, but has it really been changing the game for you? If it is, keep it going, but if you want to tweek with the deck a bit, I think this is another good place to do it. Your saying it combos with your Legionnaire, but even if you had 2 out, that would only mean an extra 4 damage, nice, but I think you can make your deck more powerful with another combo using your mentors, or even just going straight red spell damage. Hopefully at that time you would have out one of your bigger fliers, or add another big one like Light of the Legion(also a mentor), or go for an earlier cheaper rout with some more buffering using Parhelion Patrol.

It really depends what to add depending how you are losing. If you are losing to a sweep of your smaller guys before they get bigger, you might need to go Tajic, Legion's Edge (another mentor as well as combo too getting buffs from the guildmage land) to prevent black and red spells killing your creatures. On the other hand, if you're getting behind early in games to a more aggro deck, the change in mana will likely help, but so will having your own quick damage to take out early trouble. Lightning Strike etc instead of the big spell casts like Intervention, but easy quick for early, and still a little helpful later on to finish off a blocking creature, planeswalker, player... They are getting out more creatures than you, and you have to leave your big fliers back to defend, Sigiled Sword of Valeron or Forebear's Blade, and put the Parhelion Patrol in for sure.

Once you have a good base, you can sideboard these different sets of cards depending what types of deck you're playing against. You will probably recognize some of the people, and if you don't, you will know which deck it is after the first game.

Keep playing around with it, and have fun. It looks like you have a fun deck that can really be tough to deal with. Please keep us posted if you get it running how you'd like, and what you did to make it happen. I had fun thinking through the possibilities. Best of luck

I didn't consider that SereneTsunami. I'll swap out Boros Challenger for Sky Terror and see how it plays. Thanks for the suggestion!

Sky Terror for a two drop?

I think you have too many instants and sorceries for what this deck is trying to do. Moreover, too many of your creatures are two-color, which makes them harder to cast. I would cut 2x (probably all of them, to be honest) Risk Factor and 2x Lightning Strike, and I would play an additional 2x History of Benalia and an additional 1x Legion's Landing  Flip.

I would also probably go to just a single copy of Tajic, Legion's Edge. For additional creatures, I would put in 4x Dauntless Bodyguard and probably 2x Benalish Marshal, and maybe 2x or 3x Knight of Grace. The point is to try to increase the density of knights as your current list has zero knights for History of Benalia to target (other than the two tokens it makes).

I have been underwhelmed by Swiftblade Vindicator. I get that it is a decent target for mentor, but too often it caps at a single +1/+1 counter, and that just doesn't seem like good value. For the same mana cost, why not a flier like Sky Terror? Exact same mana cost, but it flies and has menace-- and it is a 2/2 instead of a 1/1.

Just some thoughts. Hope these help! Good luck!

Malikin I think he's a pretty decent beater and would be interesting to test out. Sky Terror is a better 2-drop considering he's an evasive creature and can be pumped via mentor. It might be worth running 2 or sideboarding him just to push tempo.

Metallic_Purple: Okay, sweet! I wanted to ask you if you were enjoying running Sky Terror. I'm consider putting either that or Relentless Raptor in the sideboard of a Boros deck I'm working on and was wondering what you thought of the card.
