Orcish Lumberjack might be something to consider here.

Tangent: Great underrated card: Orcish Lumberjack. I’ve heard it referred to as lotus orc. Five mana on turn 2....I mean come on, this should be in every Gruul deck.

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.

So I mean, the easiest way to improve the deck I can see is to add more 2-mana mana-rocks and potentially some 1-mana mana-dorks. I try to never run more than 32 or 33 lands in non-landfall decks, so cutting 5-6 lands is acceptable if you replace them with mana sources. Note that 3-mana mana-rocks are significantly worse than 2-mana rocks, and should be replaced. Consider running some of the following: the talismans (Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy and friends), Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, the signets (Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet and friends), Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Deathrite Shaman, Orcish Lumberjack... All of these are low-cost ways to get more mana. Dropping a rock on turn two and casting a four-mana spell turn three is much better than ramping on turn 3, in my experience. With the exception of Noble Hierarch, I think all these cards should be well under $20.

You could put in some Snow-Covered Basics for Field of the Dead.

Cards I have in my Wingrace deck which could interest you: Orcish Lumberjack to bring Windgrace out early. It is very good.

Cavalier of Flame really cool card to cycle your hand or to finish the game when you sacrifice it.

Zuran Orb really cool card to sacrifice lands and it could safe your life ;-)

Greater Good awesome card draw engine. In combination with titania and a land sac outlet you can cycle through your deck very quickly

Crop Rotation a staple for a land deck, you should play it

Retreat to Hagra also a very neat card which could make a lot of damage over the game.

Here is my Windgrace deck: Windgrace, Lord of Lands maybe you find some usefull cards

T3: Land, tap lands and dork for 4, sacrifice all 3 lands for 9 more mana
