You need more lands, white does ramping poorly and you cant afford to miss a land drop ever, so probably 36 MINIMUM and 38 would be better. You need more ramp spells like Sol Ring , Thran Dynamo , Gilded Lotus , Knight of the White Orchid , Kor Cartographer , Solemn Simulacrum , Caged Sun , Gauntlet of Power and Extraplanar Lens . Also Herald of War is a very good choice as well. In short your playing big expensive creatures and you need the ability to get them out quickly. Note that the mana doublers I suggested works very well with your commanders mana sink ability.

@ PartyJ ,
I didn't even think about gifting away the etb-permanents like Kor Cartographer , it seems to be pretty valuable though :D
It's great to see someone playing Zedruu the political way she should be played while still going your very own, individual way :) I wish you great luck by trying out your deck in future games and hope my suggestions will serve you well ;) Otherwise... donate them!

Hi NetholonTheArchmage. Thanks for the kind words. My main goal is to have fun playing a commander that is not widely used, which also has a kinda unique approach to the commander game. I felt that Zedruu could give this to me. I recently changed it pretty hefty, cause I felt I was playing too passively. I really try to stay away from the bad gifts part or stax in general for obvious reasons:
1.) When I choose Zedruu, I choose to play a casual and social game. Stax and bad gifts does no good for this.
2.) I want to do something that is NOT the obvious route to take.
3.) New and/or unexperienced players have a hard time with stax and bad gifts.
However I also try not to be too gentle on them, so I chose a route in between: Zedruu politics with an army of anything from fodder to semi fodder (read: tokens). There aint no freebies in life, unless I get something favour in return. Insert evil grin
I love to try to 'play' the table in my favor and I gift them tokens in return. Eventually it should serve me way more than anyone else.
My main gifts are:
1.) Mercenaries being 'lend' out. Tokens ;-)
I am still balancing this act, so your suggestions are really appealing and I think I will give them both a try. Thanks! I will be coming to your deck soon.

Might want to consider more early ramp. Mind Stone/Fellwar Stone/Wayfarer's Bauble and Knight of the White Orchid/Solemn Simulacrum/Kor Cartographer. Your curve is so beefy and I think more ramp will really smooth your play.

You are in my realm this time with your flicker deck Wow that's a high curve. 17 of you flicker targets cost 5+ mana. Its ok to have big value cards, but when you have so many you aren't helping yourself.
The first thing I would do if I were you is trim back your mana curve. Some lower costing card I'd suggest are
And I'd also recommend running more flicker effects. some good ones would be
As always these are just suggestions, but I believe that these cards would improve your game-plan immensely

+1 from me! If you were going for a gimmick deck then dinosaurs is a pretty awesome option! I wanted to build pirates; but honestly dinosaurs got so much more support wowww
Honestly, if your ultimate gameplan is to "cast commander, beat face" then many of the other dinosaurs are just going to slow you down. Gishath, Sun's Avatar is arguably better for a dedicated dino deck imo
I feel like the dream play is Zacama, Primal Calamity immediately into Akroma's Memorial/Xenagos, God of Revels and swing... or just wiping everyone of problematic enchantments/artifacts/creatures lmao
It might be smart to run 30+ creatures because how often are you really casting a 9CMC commander?! Depends on where you take the deck. Do you want beaters or rampers? Wood Elves, Solemn Simulacrum, Kor Cartographer, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc etc. I assume you don't want it to feel exactly like Darigaaz Reincarnated/Maelstrom Wanderer which is why I suggested Otepec Huntmaster&friends. Just Brainstorming
You have a bunch of mana doublers which is awesome, including the updated Regal Behemoth that's a mf dinosaur! Plus sorcery ramp. There's a decent spot removal package and some of the auto include boardwipes. A couple dinos have removal tacked on as well. Spellbreaker Behemoth is sweet. I love Samut and the haste enablers. Fervor is meh. You have a lot of really cool stuff here tho. You even snuck in Craterhoof & Avenger. There's a light token theme here which doesn't fit. Idk.
If you're trying to thin some of the fat it would be the rando 5-8 cmc spells. Crested Herdcaller, Thundering Spineback, Raging Swordtooth, Godsire, ... It's so hard. Probably lose two enchantments and two instants/sorceries and you'll only have to cut seven creatures XD
The crossroads for me is the Gishath dino aggro or Zacama goodstuff combo. It'll be cool to ultimately see what your mind imagines!
