Omniscience_is_life- Thanks for the input. I've decided to try a lot of the changes you mentioned. I have added Charging Tuskodon , Fiendish Duo , Halvar, God of Battle Flip, Reyav, Master Smith , Mind Stone , and Teferi's Protection .
I have added some cards to my maybeboard that I may try to add in at some point.
Thanks again for your wonderful suggestions!

Ajani, Strength of the Pride is an excellent card, but given that 1. if your commander gets in for damage your opponent should already be dead--and the rest are to come--and 2. if your commander has not gotten in for damage then Ajani doesn't kill anything. And then you're up a creek.
If you want a creature that'll swing for many, many points of life... look no further than Charging Tuskodon . If my math is correct, giving this beautiful Dino doublestrike and triple damage, he'll hit for 48 damage (a lot).
Love the deck, keep it up! Excited to see where it goes in the future

Change Charging Tuskodon's ability so that it says "a creature you control" instead of its name. Fog will prevent both the damage doubling replacement effect like Coward_Token and I are suggesting and the trigger you have written since the combat damage is never dealt.

TonyStark9001 Sure thing, that's great.
But my point still stands on Charging Tuskodon. Your deck will definitely be better if it got swapped for Regisaur Alpha or Shifting Ceratops. Commune with Dinosaurs also really gives you some great selection. You can't always expect to have Llanowar Elves in your opener, so having other options for turn 1 is always nice.
What I meant was that your beaters cost 5 and up. If you don't have your rampers on curve (or they get removed) you're stuck going 1 for 1 until you find a 5th land. The land count is also in the lower end, given your high curve.
Keep in mind that the Pioneer format is quite a lot stronger than Standard.
Don't take it to heart mate, it's just my 2 cents on how to hopefully improve the deck. If it works for you, just ignore my suggestions.

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!

Etali, Primal Storm is a fantastic Dinosaur card for commander
Carnage Tyrant is one of the better Dinosaurs
Guardian Project for card draw
Charging Tuskodon can be a massive hay maker.
Regal Behemoth for card draw and ramp
Ripjaw Raptor for card draw
Wakening Sun's Avatar is a very specific tribal wrath
Frontier Siege can give you either mana or a ETB fight trigger
Urza's Incubator to make them all cheaper
Sol Ring for mana
