I see. Cradle is for sure more powerful than a Command Tower.

One additional note: Ancient Greenwarden is a bit tricky with bounce lands, though, as it makes you bounce two lands instead. Might get you locked sometimes.

Normally I would add Command Tower, but I didn’t feel it was necessary when the goal is to abuse fetch lands and needing plenty of lands that can be fetched with them. What little room left was for Gaea's Cradle and bounce lands to abuse landfall triggers.

I see. Btw, this is one of the first four coloured EDH decks I see without a Command Tower in it ;)

Assuming you still would like help, here are my thoughts just going off what you already have (so your mainboard and sideboard).

First of all your land situation needs to be sorted out. You have an insanely high average cmc (4.74) so you're going to be looking at about 40 lands without the very pricy ramp cards. 30 lands is in the range that decks with an average of about 2cmc or lower run. Here's a quickly made list of your lands that I'd use:

You almost always want to prioritise lands that can come in untapped over ones that always enter tapped. This is because auto-tapped lands basically set you back a turn, so it's often better to just run a basic over something like Sheltered Thicket. The exception here goes to the Triomes because they offer three colours and more importantly can be picked up by your fetchlands.

As for the rest of your cards, here's what I recommend cutting:

And add in their places, assuming you're running 40 lands:

Hopefully that helps, and let me know if you have any questions! These are just suggestions after a brief runthrough of course, so feel free to take them or leave them!

Hey, nice Scroll Rack Invention :)

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Sol Ring and Command Tower are some staple budget cards in Commander. At TCGPlayer you can find Sol for less than $3 and Tower for less than $1. Congregation at Dawn is a good budget creature tutor with Gishath. Cast it the same turn you want play Gishath or the turn before to tutor for and arrange the top of your library with any three Dinos to cheat onto the battlefield. Forerunner of the Empire is a Dino tutor (puts the Dino on top of your library) and a repeatable enrage enabler when a Dino you control ETB.

Quartzwood Crasher is one of the better budget Dinos since it can be a repeatable source of Dino tokens since many other Dinos have trample especially with Ghalta. Crasher combines well with Garruk's Uprising which can be a repeatable draw source and can give all creatures you control trample. Ripjaw Raptor has a powerful enrage ability to draw a card when it takes damage. Rhythm of the Wild makes all creatures you cast uncounterable and it gives nontoken creatures when they ETB the option of haste or make it bigger with a +1/+1 counter.

With Orcish Lumberjack sacing a Forest you control can make four mana since you can tap the Forest for mana before you sac it which can be a quick way to ramp into Gishath or other Dinos. Farseek is two drop land ramp that can search for a dual land such as Stomping Ground, Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. At TCGPlayer can get Vista and Glade for less than $2 each.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Aether Vial isn't mana ramp, nor do you want to rely on it for big dragons. Gauntlet of Power costs too much mana to be good ramp (you want to stick to cmc 3 or less) plus it doesn't color fix, and only works with basics (which you don't have much room for in a 5c deck). imo, Mox Amber is also too slow when all your legendaries are 5+ mana. it won't be able to produce mana until after you've already reached a point where you can cast your dragons anyway. you want stuff like Arcane Signet and Darksteel Ingot, as well as Farseek which can grab dual lands.

as for lands, a 5c mana base is easy if your group allows proxies. 1 of each fetch land, original duals, and shock lands gives you 30 lands. the rest you can fill out with rainbow lands like Command Tower, and Cavern of Souls. stay away from lands that enter tapped.

I assume that doesn't include the lands like the dual flip ones from ZNR because their faces are non land, but I do want to ask, as well how does Arcane Signet/Command Tower interact. I assume they tap for the commander's color identity, not the flipped one for the deck?

So can I ever cast my commander, and how are cards like Command Tower affected, you said I have to run cards outside my commander's identity, so is it the identity is flipped, letting my command tower tap for the colors of my deck, or of my commander, and do I need "any color" mana sources to ever cast my commander?
