This is one of the best Dinosaur Decks I have seen a while. Nice Job adding Comedy to this deck!

Thanks GameFruity! I have been testing it a lot and trying to find the right balance of ramp and stomp.
Adding Rile has actually really made a huge difference. With Ranging Raptors in play for I fetch a land and draw a card, thinning the deck quickly for a better success rate with both Commune with Dinosaurs and Gishath, Sun's Avatar to grab me a Carnage Tyrant.

Coopdeforce, it's funny you ask. I was originally running two of it, figuring it could add a lot with looking for creatures and then massive mana in the late game...
Instead I found it too expensive at CMC 3 for the initial effect, and too conditional to be consistent for the flip-side.
I made a lot of tweaks to keep this running smooth, and the eventual winners have been a package of Ranging Raptors, Ripjaw Raptor, Raging Swordtooth, and Rile. Those 4 cards cause the deck to ramp and thin quickly, and also provide bodies for damage or blocking. (which becomes win-win if they creature block)
It's absurdly fun to get a T1 cost reducer, T2 Ranging Raptors, T3 Ripjaw, and T4 Swordtooth. You walk into T5 ready to Commune and drop a Carnage Tyrant, or stabilize your opponent with Cast Out, then Commune for a T6 Gishath, Sun's Avatar.
Back to the topic, there wasn't really any place in there that Growing Rites could have been cast, or would have helped much. By the time you have enough creatures to flip it, you're already ramped high enough to cast Carnage Tyrant (such a cute little guy) from your hand.
Hope this little rant helps!

...to be fair, the earliest I've consistently cast a Carnage Tyrant was T4. It's technically possible to get one on T3 with this deck, but I have not seen it.
T4 7/6 Trample Hexproof is still more than scary anyway.

Well, I was. Scary af. Until you run into turbofog. But why would you? ;)
Great deck description. I actually re-closed the legal disclaimer before reading it and then read the first paragraphs first because I'd had hoped for something like this. Had a good laugh.

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you! I always like to have an amusing deck description.
Turbofog WOULD be a problem, and is usually a good answer to a creature based, stomp-happy, aggro deck like this one.
My only hope would be keeping that pressure on and maybe swapping in a little more removal/lifegain from the sideboard.

Lol Gamefruity is my irl friend and I have a Dino deck Super similar to this if you wanna give it a look. I am very insulted by Gamefruity. I need to go give him a punch to the face.

You missed a good opportunity here:"Any guests found harassing the adorable dinosaurs may be Cast Out without warning."
Awesome deck, love the theme and whatnot! :)
