Search drops the basic land untapped. This makes it equivalent, unless you have an upkeep trigger that has to be sequenced before it.

If you're looking for fun, on-theme stuff I'd look at Cherished Hatchling and Scout's Warning/Savage Summoning. Enrage alongside flash feels a lot better, and backed by some funstuff like Favor of the Mighty can make for interactive matchups with more depth than pure beatdown.

I feel like 4xUtopia Sprawl and 4xArbor Elf would help with the ramp here.

Rampaging Ferocidon feels like its better in the side.

Frilled Deathspitter for 3 cost Deathmist Raptor, Runic Armasaur or Rampaging Ferocidon is better

regisaur alpha if your ramping i think more than 1 would be better

Cherished Hatchling just doesn't do enough. its a 1 turn flash fight.

Raging Regisaur Seems pretty strong think you should give it a test

Reckless Rage Could be a good way to trigger Enrage

Lightning Bolt Just a great card

Garruk Wildspeaker Good if you want to ramp to big dinos also

Kessig Wolf Run just a amazing land to have 1 or 2 of in the deck

Birds of Paradise Just better than Llanowar Elves.

I recommend this:

replace your Nest Robber with Cherished Hatchling.

more fun enrage: Ripjaw Raptor, Ranging Raptors :D

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the list! While this deck is more heavily based on creatures I also find that RNG can be a pain to rely on for the most part. I think that in a best case scenario Gishath, Sun's Avatar can bring HUGE board presence but I agree about the consistency of Zacama, Primal Calamity. Stuffy Doll is actually a great idea and I think I'm going to play around with it to see what it can bring because you're definitely onto something about its potential. I will admit that I have considered Cherished Hatchling and haven't ruled it out, you're right about the shenanigans it can present. Thanks for the suggestions and the +1!

There's a whooole bunch of cards that would do nicely in this deck in Ixalan. If you're looking for cards, start by buying packs and boxes from there (as that's where you'll find literally all of your dinosuar).

If I were building the deck, the first thing I'd do is throw out some of the unriliable or unfitting cards like Pterodon Knight, Huatli's Spurring, and Built to Smash. As for adding cards, I like the idea of Charging Tuskodon and creatures activate abilities when damaging players (psst, Gishath, Sun's Avatar). Lightning Strike and the like provide good creature removal, and Territorial Hammerskull have are good evasion effects.

Green would benefit the deck tremendously. There are dinosaurs aplenty in green, and it could provide some much needed ramp (more mana faster) and creature buffing.

Cards I would consider adding are Blood Mist (one of my favorites), Cobbled Wings, Thundering Spineback, regisaur alpha , Gishath, Sun's Avatar if you can get your hands on one or two, and Cherished Hatchling.

Just look around in Ixalan and see what works and what doesn't while you're playing. was and is my best friend when I'm looking for cards to add to a deck.

PS: Your deck is standard, not modern, unless you imagine adding cards from non-standard sets in the future.

True that. For the best decks, you gotta pony up. Oh, the eternal struggle of a magic player.

I took a look at all the Green/White creatures in Standard atm, and this is the list of creatures I would consider for a Dinosaur deck in these colors:

Imperial Lancer
Kinjalli's Caller
Priest of the Wakening Sun
Cherished Hatchling
Drover of the Mighty
Raptor Companion
Atzocan Seer
Deathgorge Scavenger
Kinjalli's Sunwing
Orazca Frillback
Ranging Raptors
Ravenous Daggertooth
Renegade Rallier
Rhonas the Indomitable
Territorial Hammerskull
Thrashing Brontodon
Knight of the Stampede
Ripjaw Raptor
Territorial Allosaurus
Crested Herdcaller
Snapping Sailback
Temple Altisaur
Trapjaw Tyrant
Carnage Tyrant
Goring Ceratops
Wakening Sun's Avatar
Zetalpa, Primal Dawn
Ghalta, Primal Hunger

I would consider maybe focusing on the lower CMC Dinos to populate the majority of the deck and have Wakening Sun's Avatar as a finisher. Your curve is a little wonky, and you'll want to smooth it out a tad.
