Snow Land — Mountain Plains
(: Gain or .)
Alpine Meadow enters the battlefield tapped.
2 weeks ago
This was an idea I wanted to try for a little while now; A tri-color checkland.
Mountain Fang Peak
Mountain Fang Peak enters the battlefield tapped unless you control two or more lands of the following types: Island, Mountain or Plains.
: Add , or .
And if all you control is an Alpine Meadow, no Mountain Fang Peak will not ETB untapped. While you do have two subtypes, you need two different permanents. Alpine is just one permanent, ergo ETB tapped.
It bothered me that we have Jade Orb of Dragonkind as well as the blue and red ones, but not the white and black ones. I'd like to think that white would gain you life equal to that Dragon's power and black would have an opponent ̶d̶i̶s̶c̶a̶r̶d̶ ̶a̶ ̶c̶a̶r̶d̶ mill cards.
Quartz Orb of Dragonkind
: Add . When you spend this mana to cast a Dragon spell, you gain life equal to its power when it enters the battlefield.
Onyx Orb of Dragonkind
: Add . When you spend this mana to cast a Dragon spell, target opponent mills five cards.
Rineraz, the Covetous
Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon
Flying, Ward X where X is the number of nontoken artifacts you control.
Rineraz, the Covetous can only be cast by mana produced by artifact sources you control.
When Rineraz, the Covetous enters the battlefield, gain control of target artifact each opponent controls until Rineraz leaves the battlefield or you lose control of him. Untap those artifacts, they gain haste until end of turn. If you lose control of Rineraz, the player who gained control of him also gains control of all artifacts you control but do not own.
(He is an 8/8 because I recognize not only how difficult it will be to cast him only using artifacts, but that it will become increasingly more difficult with commander tax - and a simple bounce or artifact wrath shuts him down, entirely.)
Are there any "unfinished sets" or other ideas that have bothered you, that should have been finished or changed? If so, here's your chance to correct / amend it or them.

See, the problem with specifically me suggesting cuts is that you and I seem to have much different playstyles. I am not big on Planeswalkers and like to keep my mana curve super low to the ground, especially with a mana hungry commander like Marath. I can tell you about objectively strong cards for your mana base though, and I tried to just do that.
If I were pressed and had to make suggestions; for just the first four sorceries I would say both 6-mana Ajanis, a basic Forest, and a basic Plains. For all 12 of my suggestions and in descending order from first card cut to last so that you can take any number and have my suggestions for cuts:
Many of these other cuts are also ramp, but that is because your Land+Ramp number is pretty close to what I like after cutting the two Ajanis. Going with sorceries and artifacts will protect you a little better from sweepers since your mana base will be able to survive a Wrath of God and you would be more likely to be able to recover. The artifacts will still leave you weak to Austere Command, but you are less likely to be collateral damage.

Temple of Abandon, Temple of Plenty, Temple of Triumph, Brushland, Battlefield Forge, Karplusan Forest, Cragcrown Pathway Flip, Needleverge Pathway Flip, Branchloft Pathway Flip could all fit into your manabase. I know you have a budget of about $5 per card, and i believe most of them other then Brushland are at or below that range.
I can see how heavily your deck is weighted toward green, but my instinct is that you have a lot of enter tapped lands that don't do anything when they enter tapped. Temples could at least provide 2 colors and scry you a card, but things like Grasslands don't thin out your deck enough to be worth losing a turn.
My recommendation is to cut 3 forests, Grasslands, Mountain Valley, Aether Hub, Alpine Meadow, Arctic Treeline, Highland Forest for the 3 temples, 3 pain and 3 pathways. With new caperna dropping, you can also cut a forest for Jetmir's Garden when its released.
Apologies for the wall of text, I hope it helps.

Hey, good start, nice Atla Dino version.
When you start to make modifications consider adding more low CMC noncreature ramp? Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone, Farseek. The Farseek suggestion goes with some budget land upgrade suggestions: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista and Alpine Meadow. These lands have two different basic land types which can be searched for by Farseek. When land ramp can get a dual land instead of basic land(s), that helps color fixing.
Quartzwood Crasher is one of the best Dinos since it can create an army of Dinos with trample by itself because it has trample and it's $2. Of course if you have more creatures who have trample then Quartzwood becomes much better esepcially with Ghalta, Primal Hunger. Garruk's Uprising gives all creatures you control trample and it also can be repeatable draw since each time a Dino ETB or Dino token that's created that's 4 or more power you draw a card. Uprising is just plain good with Dinos because most of them have 4 or more power.
With Mirror Entity more effects to give Atla a +1/+1 counter are helpful and you can get more just from budget lands: Tyrite Sanctum, Opal Palace, Forge of Heroes. Sanctum is best of these three because it can be repeatable and you don't have to cast Atla with it. When Sanctum has made Atla a God it can be saced to make Atla indestructible which is really helpful against the majority of board wipes and targeted removal. High Market is a land sac outlet. Crop Rotation can instant tutor for one of these lands, put it onto the battlefield or sac a basic land to get Command Tower.
Fanatical Devotion is more protection for Atla and it's a sac outlet for Eggs.
Good luck with your deck.

With Feather, you need to lean one way or the other, pump or burn. Cards like Firebrand Archer won't do much of anything in a deck that wins by Commander damage, whereas the pump is best replaced in a burn deck. This deck leans more toward pump, so I'll suggest cards for that.
Ajani's Presence is strictly better than some of the protection spells in here. Inquisitor's Flail is a repeatable way to double Feather's damage, it also stacks with both double strike and Unleash Fury. Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar turns a one=person kill into a full win. Blacksmith's Skill is just about the best protection spell you could ever want. Sejiri Shelter Flip is a relevant MDFC. Intimidation Bolt can save you games. Impact Resonance can help you deal with problems too, and speaking of removal, you need some boardwipes. Austere Command is a very flexible sweeper, Blasphemous Act is a quality cheap one that you can frequently protect your own stuff from, and Slaughter the Strong is also cheap and mostly doesn't affect you. If you're running Sunforger, you really need to run Magnetic Theft to fetch on the first activation. It's a very effective combo. And then Storm-Kiln Artist is just a must in every Feather deck. It turns your engine from good to game-ending in seconds. Show of Confidence is also a game-ender, pairs very well with the storm aspect of the deck and the counters are permanent and it's hard to counter.
If you find your stuff is getting countered, or you need to use spells but Feather can't stay out, recursion like Dreadhorde Arcanist, Mavinda, Students' Advocate, and Past in Flames might be worth looking into.
In general, remove two-cost spells if possible, remove burn, and think about what color your mana production is. In my experience, most of the spells you want to cast multiple times are white, so red-mana production is less valuable. And Remote Farm will backfire very quickly without a way to increase its counters or blink it. There are a few other cards in here that just aren't quite good enough if you need advice on more things to take out.
If your playgroup starts to adapt, like mine did, and runs cards that don't care about your protection like Sakashima's Will, Out of Time, Extinction Event, etc., think about Eerie Interlude. It's three mana and one-time protection, but it can get you out of a rough spot that no other card can.

I suspect you'd benefit from a few more White mana sources, or things that can find them. Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape are readily cast ramp that can find plains for you. Krosan Verge is on colour here, and is probably worth running as well, as it can find non-basic lands for you, like the Kaldheim Snow Duals. There are also ramp spells that can find those Snow Duals, so it's not just about the pricier Fetch Lands. The relevant Snow Duals are Arctic Treeline Alpine Meadow and Highland Forest. Farseek can find Meadow at least, and things like Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Skyshroud Claim can find any that are Forests. These have no other upside, but getting access to White mana off of Three Visits is going to help. Most people just find Shock Lands with Farseek, but Snow Duals are very solid options to have.
The other thing that jumped out is the low amount artifact/enchantment hate. Cards like this are really useful in Commander, there is almost always a target, even if you draw a few of them. Viashino Heretic is good artifact hate on a stick, Devout Witness can hate on either, but is worse at it's job. You can also run Green options, which often sac the creature like Thrashing Brontodon or work as a Comes Into Play effect like Reclamation Sage. Since you have big creatures and love to have Jared get hit, Ulvenwald Tracker can arrange for Jared to get swatted by the biggest thing on the board every turn, either killing it and growing or just growing.
