Actually, a fun card that might help with the flying issue is Chaosphere. It flips everything on its head and

zeusfireair YES! So glad you like some of the suggestions! Let me know how they work for you. I agree on your counterpoints to Trove and the tutors—not meant for every deck!
Good point about Brand I definitely misinterpreted that!
Also, some more that came to mind:
Oh and def for funsies (if it’s not already in your deck list I cant recall) Chaosphere

Thanks for the suggestions! Both Chaosphere and Raging River seem to make a great Bedlam impression. I might only include the Chaosphere, because I'm not sure this decks wants three copies of this sort of similar effect. Also, I didn't know the card Gratuitous Violence, this card is amazing! It's basically a one sided Furnace of Rath for creatures, for just one generic mana more, it's going right into the deck! Also, I just died yesterday to Insurrection, so it's going right in as well! hahaha
On the other hand, I'm not sure I want to go too deep in the token generating effects. I think this deck (with the current build, that is) would work better relying on Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor mostly. Also, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is in there mostly as a Plan B, just because it works so well with equipment. I do like Shared Animosity a lot, though, which is more or less a second copy of Coat of Arms for attackers. And a bad version of an amazing card is still pretty good! :D I will say that it's quite reasonable to take Varchild as a tokens Commander, though. It's just, I like more the Voltron strategy for myself, but you could get a sick tokens deck, in which case I would also consider Purphoros, God of the Forge
Thanks a lot for commenting and for the suggestions. It's been super helpful! :D

Awesome build! I've been wanting to build this dude since I saw him spoiled. To make blocking even more confusing you can throw in a Chaosphere and maybe Raging River. Insurrection is a sweet late game move too. There is also Gratuitous Violence for doubling damage as well. Also, Firecat Blitz is probs my favorite token generator in the game. That flashback cost calls for desperate measures but it plays into what Red likes to do. If Valduk is one of your main token generators it may be worth having a Sundial of the Infinite so in the off-chance your making a bunch with him you can keep them too. In the vein of survivor tokens, Shared Animosity and Kindred Charge can be deadly (and then Sundial can work with Kindred Charge also).
You may have convinced me into buckling down and building Varchild! I never started as a red player but in recent years I have embraced it fully! Thanks for the inspiration. Hope the suggestions help!

Steely Resolve is a nice tribal protection enchantment that can protect your dinosaurs.
I'd say Heroic Intervention and Boros Charm are both very important to protecting your dinosaurs and the charm is even better for sudden double strike on Gishath. Both cards also enable a potential Forerunner of the Empire, Polyraptor / Raptor Hatchling infinite token enrage win con with the indestructibility.
I've also personally had success running a damage board wipe package alongside the indestructibility spells (and Temple Altisaur ) like Blasphemous Act, Star of Extinction, and Wave of Reckoning just to get that enrage value. Board wipes hurt in Gishath, but sometimes you just have to. You can at least get something out of it if you have enrage dinosaurs out using those spells. Getting the occasional one sided wipe with the package of cards alongside enrage has always felt good.
