This is one of the most interesting games that I've played. I look forward to everyone's great ideas.

Cards to put in:

Artifacts: Sol Ring, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Rakdos Signet, Boros Signet and other ramp. Maybe some card draw like Skullclamp and sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar. If your creatures are gonna die anyway, may as well get some value off 'em.

Enchantments: Cards like Bloodfire Infusion, Power of Fire, Lightning Prowess, Lavamancer's Skill, Fire Whip, and Aspect of Gorgon and Retreat to Hagra. More things that grant the abilities you're wanting to dish out. Maybe some card draw like Phyrexian Arena would be good here too.

Creatures: More things with deathtouch. Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Harvester of Souls. That's all I've got right now.

Sorceries: Chandra's Ignition?!?!? How'd this not make the cut? Also other wipes. Especially stuff that gets rid of non-creature permanents. Heck, maybe even Armageddon. Tutors could be here too. Maybe some card draw.

Instants: Pretty good with what you've got in here. Needs a bit more removal probably. Non-creature and creature. You could try Arcbond for a fun time.

That's about all I've got for now. Definitely missing some stuff.

Lands: Take out 2 Mountains, Stone Quarry, Cinder Barrens, and Forsaken Sanctuary and maybe the Guildgates if you want and add in at least one plains, Haven of the Spirit Dragon, any of the life gain dual lands from Tarkir... just use better duals than the strictly-worse guildgates. I have a personal issue with those lands. They insulted "Avatar the Last Airbender" once.

Creatures:

Things to pull: Ancient Hellkite works to slow, requires to much investment, and is too conditional. Forgestoker Dragon cuz it's clunky and slow compared to other things. (A lot of these suggestions will be cutting the worst of duplicate effects). Aegis Angel (above reason)? Wojek Embermage? Paragon of Open Graves cuz you don't have enough black to make its ability work. Scalding Salamander is too conditional. Either Vulshok Sorcerer or Blood Cultist. Crossbow Infantry. Stun Sniper. Painsmith because not enough artifacts.

Artifacts: That Which Was Taken cuz it's also too slow.

For Phenax:

Needs 3-4 more lands, I think. I'm talking Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, and gags Submerged Boneyard if nothing else. Better lands than those in no particular order are Dimir Aqueduct, Temple of the False God, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Opal Palace.

Also cards you could take out to put those in: Sphinx's Tutelage is better in a card draw based deck than a mill based deck. Maybe it'll get a dozen or so cards every other game, but I don't really think it's quite worth it. Isochron Scepter is good if you can hook it up with one of your half dozen instants that are worth while imprinting with it and it can go infinite w/ Dramatic Reversal and a Sol Ring or something, but I'm not sold. It's an easy two-for-one if an opponent gets rid of it and I feel like there'd be many situations that it's just a dead card in hand if you don't have one of your instants. I've seen how well Tormod's Crypt has worked, but it doesn't do enough to stay in the deck compared to some of your other "graveyard hate" cards. Plus, many of your other cards (literally) get their power from having stuff in your opponent's yard. Evil Twin isn't as bad as he thinks he is. As a removal spell he's slow and I don't see why you need a Clone in here. Body Double is worth it, though because 8/10 times people will have more creatures in their graveyard than on the battlefield against this deck. Disciple of Deceit feels... untrustworthy. If it works, though, by all means keep it. I'm not familiar enough with the deck to know what you would throw away and what you would want to go find. Maybe Crypt Incursion for the sane reason as Toromod's Crypt? Maybe switch it with Profane Memento? Also, maybe Bontu the Glorified could be cut?

Some other cards you could look out for: Altar of the Brood. Mind Sculpt. Siren of the Silent Song (I really like its draw and mill ability). Dinrova Horror, Far / Away, and Reality Shift are underrated removal spells. Also at least two more board wipes. Cyclonic Rift is just as good, if not better, here as it is anywhere else. In Garruk's Wake is pricy, mana-wise, but pretty nice. Nevinyrral's Disk is a classic. Profaner of the Dead works in here. And there are more at least decent black wipes that you could consider playing. And maybe you didn't think of these couple dudes, but they are good for butts and good in general: Disowned Ancestor, Dragon's Eye Savants and the best blocker of all time Fog Bank.

Happy Building!

Cards to pull:

Creatures- Belligerent Brontodon, Bonded Horncrest, Generator Servant, Looming Altisaur. Opaline Unicorn, Zhur-Taa Druid

Instants + Sorceries:Fateful Showdown ?, Enter the Unknown, Explore

There are some other cards that aren't that great, but currently you don't have the resources to replace them.

Cards to add from Sideboard:Commune with Dinosaurs, Kinjalli's Caller, Obelisk of Urd, Otepec Huntmaster

Other Recomendations:

Pick up the Huatli Planeswalker deck. It has Huatli, Dinosaur Knight who has great synergy with all dinos along with Burning Sun's Avatar, Sun-Blessed Mount, and Goring Ceratops which are all good dinosaurs themselves. And who knows, maybe you'll draw some of the dinosaurs from Ixalan that you don't have from the booster packs. Also, I'd recommend getting the Feline Ferocity commander deck from C17. It's the cheapest of the set, it's in your colors, and you can break it apart and use at least a third of the cards in there. Not many of the creatures would be of use but there are great commander staples and powerful cards in the the lands, instants, sorceries, arifacts, and enchantments in that deck. These two decks would be good options to help enhance your deck if you don't want to just go out and buy the singles you actually need.
