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.

Suns_Champion: To inform you of my findings, Trapjaw Tyrant and Silverclad Ferocidons are good inclusions if you have more cards like Pyrohemia but otherwise not so hot for a spellslinger deck. You would be better served with the likes of Stuffy Doll, Boros Reckoner and the like. At least, That's my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

So, I had an idea. How about Trapjaw Tyrant and Silverclad Ferocidons? Their Enrage abilities have a great synergy with cards that deal damage to all creatures.

Maybe include 2 copies of Vanquisher's Banner mainboard since you have a strong tribal theme? I'd also add 1 or 2 copies of Combat Celebrant. Maybe a 2/2 split with Champion to keep down the non-dino count.

Maybe go down to 2 Commune, 2 Ranging Raptors, and 3 Sheltering Light to bring in a 2/2 split of Kinjalli's Caller and Priest of the Wakening Sun or a 1/1/2 of Snubhorn Sentry, Caller, and Priest. You should have some 1-drop bodies against aggro.

Shake the Foundations seems like too expensive an instant here if you want to cast a creature or two every turn. Maybe swap them out for 3 copies of Abrade?

Sideboard should have a few low-cost, instant artifact hate cards and some life gain like Renewed Faith. Maybe a Trapjaw Tyrant. A few more broad answers like Baffling End, Settle the Wreckage, and Ixalan's Binding.

I hope those suggestions make sense. I am not a Standard player, so I apologize for any obvious mistakes, but my recommendations are in-line with what I know about constructed tribal decks :)

Have fun!

Sorry for the radio silence all, thanks for commenting Polupus and the way, don't you owe me some feedback? :)

As for Caltrops, it's for what nsolarz pointed out earlier- it's meant to be used with the Enrage ability belonging to Polyraptor, Ripjaw Raptor, and Trapjaw Tyrant. Initially, I wanted to make it a sub-theme within the deck, but I haven't found any other dinos with that ability worth including. What do you two think about Siegehorn Ceratops and Ranging Raptors? Think they're worth including? What would you cut to include them?

So 1: Belligerent Brontodon doesn't do a lot of work. In fact it hurts some of your creatures and the only one it helps by more than 1 power is Kinjalli's Caller.

2: Where are Polyraptor, Forerunner of the Empire, Pyrohemia, Etali, Primal Storm, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Knight of the Stampede, Raging Regisaur, Ripjaw raptor , Siegehorn Ceratops, Silverclad Ferocidons, Temple Altisaur, or Trapjaw Tyrant?

How about the noncreatures, like Kindred Boon, Kindred Summons, Aura Shards, kindred charge , Blasphemous Act, Chandra, the Firebrand?? ANY SORT OF MANA RAMP?!
