Some good dinosaurs that appear to be missing: Trapjaw Tyrant, Thrashing Brontodon (need to have some answers in your deck for other people's stuff), Temple Altisaur, Verdant Sun's Avatar, Ranging Raptors, Wakening Sun's Avatar (boardwipe dinosaur!), Thundering Spineback, and some of my favourite "dinosaurs" Taurean Mauler and Chameleon Colossus.

Dinosaurs are expensive - make sure you can cast them with plenty of cheap mana ramp (Rampant Growth, Cultivate, etc.).

I was torn between Huatli, Warrior Poet and Verdant Sun's Avatar.. I ended up using verdant due to the interaction it has with Gishath, Sun's Avatar.. But i might change my mind in the near future and just replace Gishath entirely.

Verdant Sun's Avatar for a bit of life gain perhaps?

Here's a couple of suggestions: Knight of the Stampede would be very good here. Also, Priest of the Wakening Sun can help gain life, and Kinjalli's Caller is a good early game blocker that can ramp into larger dinosaurs. Frankly, I suggest maybeboarding -> sideboarding Priest of the Wakening Sun and mainboarding Knight of the Stampede. Two of the three avatars (Wakening Sun's Avatar, Verdant Sun's Avatar) are pretty good and worth adding. Personally, I love the decklist and think it might be worth running in FNM. Great job YungStitch!

More dinosaurs would make Gishath's trigger more consistent, even though Burning Sun's Avatar  Flip and Verdant Sun's Avatar are underwhelming compared to other dinos such as the mono-color legends. Try cutting back on some of your combat tricks - they're dead cards without dinos. Just focus on a few with multiple uses like Boros Charm for double strike Gishath or indestructible creatures.

Another recommendation is finding a place for "fight cards" like Savage Stomp and Dromoka's Command which double as creature removal and a way to trigger enrages.

Definitely keep between 8-10 ramp cards though. Getting Gishath out turn 5 and swinging into an empty board feels great.

Would Verdant Sun's Avatar go well here?

There's a couple of Dinos in Ixalan that could work well with your deck:

Verdant Sun's Avatar - Life gain for all those big booties.

Belligerent Brontodon - It's basically a second Doran in case your commander gets stolen.

They're a bit expensive, so maybe just choose one of them.
