I might just be missing something, but what's the reason for putting in Zilortha, Strength Incarnate?

I just re-read your comment on my Zilortha, Strength Incarnate deck. In regards to your playgroup, you mentioned you needed a very explosive deck due to a big amount of wraths. Have you ever considered Feather, the Redeemed as a possible commander for that?
Btw, how is your Zilortha going? I've unfortunately still had no chance to actually test mine.

You're totally right mate. That came out worse than intended. Sorry.
Let me start over:
Love the dinos, love the name.
A few things to consider:
For competitive play, decks like this want a strong and efficient curve. For most decks, that usually means to lower the curve. Yours starts at 5, which is too slow in many cases. Even with some ramp and removal. Some good options could be Ripjaw Raptor and Marauding Raptor - this is obviously best with Enrage creatures, but definitely outshines Otepec Huntmaster at that point. Regisaur Alpha and Ghalta, Primal Hunger are also great cards, that happen to follow your trample theme. Both should be stronger than Yidaro, Wandering Monster and Zilortha, Strength Incarnate. The latter doesn't really synergize with anything in the deck.
You've gone hard on the spot removal to make up for the curve. Going one for one doesn't always cut it though, when you have no early pressure or card advantage. You'll run out of juice or just get outclassed. I'm a greedy guy myself, but I've run into that same problem myself several times before.
I think Commune with Dinosaurs is a must in dino tribal. It just adds some good consistency + it lets you play fewer lands without fear of mana screw. 4 copies + 22-23 lands should be enough, depending on your curve.
I'm not saying to build exactly like in this video, but she goes more in detail about deckbuilding and card choices in the first 5 minutes, so it might be of help -
Hope that helps. Good luck!

OK. I thought about it. I shouldn't have to merely rely on sources for Creatures w/ Higher Power, Toughness, or Equal of both. So, I ask you. Pretend I was using a Source like Scryfall Advanced, & I wanted to find a list of Creatures either of Higher Power, Higher Toughness, or even Equal stats (0/0, / & Variable + (0/X)/Variable + (0/X) also applies if you wanted other options.).
I've been trying to find a way for the longest time, that & an actual Artwork of the real Zilortha, Strength Incarnate; which is unfortunately, an Alternate name for "Godzilla, King of the Monsters". & find a good Mono- (Yep, I'm going there yet again.) utilizing Anti-Counter Strategies such as Solemnity, Lotus Bloom (Does Suspend Count?), Wall of Shards (What about Cumulative Upkeeps?), even Mothra Herself will make us appease her in honor; even if it's alongside 2 Mystical, Miniature Maidens. XP. Might as well throw in Phyrexian Unlife & any conventional ways to lose be locked out as options to lose.
Backtracking to Point 1: Does anyone have a Way to search only for Creatures w/ Higher Power, Toughness, or Equal Stats? I'm interested to know. :D
(Maybe I'll even bring The Temporal Cracking in Reality back for another try; someone might have found a great use for him...)

beets, i've been eyeing a number of cards from the Godzilla/Ikoria series but i'm having a difficult time finding a Dino that fits more than just generic "Dinosaur Tribal". I want dinos that either fit the Enrage subtheme or help enable an infinite combo like the Commander herself. Titanoth Rex is cool, but is geared more toward the psuedo-voltron theme of Mutate. I wanted to find a way to make Zilortha, Strength Incarnate work but it would have little impact on my deck - my creatures are THICC front and back. So, maybe there's something i'm missing? I wouldn't doubt it. But given what i'm looking for in a Dinosaur from ikoria is there anything that comes to mind?
