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.

I think you'd want to focus on proliferate and putting +1/+1 counters on your creatures.

I think that you have a larger number of enchantments then you need. Here are my suggestions to sharpen this area of your deck. Web of Inertia should be replaced with Inexorable Tide . Sheltered Aerie can be replaced with Hardened Scales . This next swab can be a large chunk of money but is a significant upgrade. Asceticism is an upgrade for Shielding Plax . It is up to you but I would cut Beastmaster Ascension and Bred for the Hunt . You can replace them with value creatures that allow you to utilize your commander.

For Sorcery, I am going to again focus on proliferate. Miming Slime creates a creature who can be powerful but not of value, instead I would put in Tezzeret's Gambit . Verdant Confluence is a good card but beings with it a high mana cost. Triumph of the Hordes is cheaper, buffs all your creatures, and threatens your opponents with an infect trample attack. I would replace Confluence with the Triumph of the Hordes card. Cultivate could be more versatile and cheaper then Journey of Discovery .

Now instants. Druid's Deliverance focuses on populate. This ability is for doubling tokens and not counters. Krosan Grip is more value as you get to remove a target artifact or enchantment. Your other cards are good choices but preventing combat damage just slows you down. I would remove Respite and Root Snare . You can use this spot to add 2 more creatures that will buff your experience counters.

Artifacts is really up to you. My only suggestion would be to remove Simic Keyrune and put in Whispersilk Cloak .

Lands look great! Some suggestions would be Yavimaya Coast , Temple of Mystery , Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse , Botanical Sanctum , and Hinterland Harbor . Sand Silos can slow you down somewhat and Darksteel Citadel only produces colorless mana. It is up to you on how you want to combine these suggestions. My last note is that your land count should be between 37 and 39 to make sure you can constantly play mana and don't get stuck.

Creatures are the bread and butter of your deck. You need them for those experience counters, so let's start putting in some value creatures that benefit you. Wall of Mist is a defender that will never attack, instead lets try to put in Chasm Skulker . Skulker can get very scary and when he is removed, you have an army of tokens. Cultivator of Blades can help to power up your creatures on an attack, triggers an experience counter, and is cheaper in mana then Oran-Rief Hydra . Druid of the Cowl can be upgraded with Gyre Sage . Sakura-Tribe Scout and Wayward Swordtooth allow you to play additional lands but this doesn't benefit your gameplan. Herald of Secret Streams and Champion of Lambholt are good value cards to replace them. Gladehart Cavalry is very expensive mana wise. Vorel of the Hull Clade is a great replacement that doubles your counters. Overgrown Armasaur should be replaced with Managorger Hydra .

Out Bellowing Aegisaur - Low-impact dino. Doesn't actually combo with Marath. It replaces the counter you spent to ping it, but doesn't actually put you ahead

Overgrown Armasaur - Low-impact dino

Sun-Crowned Hunters - Low-impact dino

Snapping Sailback - Low-impact dino

Vigor - As with the Bellowing Aegisaur , doesn't actually let Marath go up on counters

Anger of the Gods - If I'm pulling back on the enrage theme, do I need this?

In Basilisk Collar - It's back. See my prior comment

Avenger of Zendikar - Big token producer, even if not directly on theme

Xenagos, the Reveler - Generate big mana

Mirari's Wake - More big mana

Runic Armasaur - A new toy. Let's see how it does

Chord of Calling - It's a combo deck, so now I can tutor for what I need, like Ivy Lane Denizen

Other things I don't have but which I'm considering: Anointed Procession and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip

Out

Maybe Out

In

You're missing a bunch of the best dinosaur cards in my opinion

Maybe In

That gets you no where near where you need to be. To me you have too many enchantments might look there more.

Some cards of possible interest that shouldn't break the bank:

Fungal Plots Dead bodies can spawn you new bodies to keep attacking and generating more mana.

Hammer of Purphoros Haste is good and extra lands become attackers if needed.

Artifact Mutation Turn their artifacts into your attackers.

Fanning the Flames Something to do with all of that mana.

Overgrown Armasaur can produce more bodies to generate more attack mana. Thundering Spineback is a mana sink that makes more bodies and Forerunner of the Empire will fetch either or Ghalta plus ding the Armasaur to make a saproling. There may be other dinos that fit in here and most aren't expensive.

Inferno Titan has a firebreathing mana sink plus can help clear the way so all of your attackers actually connect more often. Warmonger Hellkite is even less expensive to buy and gives your whole team firebreathing. You have to attack every turn but you should be wanting to do that anyway.

Gruul Guildgate and Gruul Turf are dirt cheap. Sheltered Thicket is a budget dual that Wood Elves can go fetch. Cinder Glade does the same but might be just over what you're looking to spend. Raging Ravine might also be right at that budget line but produces both your colors early and attacks when you have the mana mid to late, getting bigger each attack. Myriad Landscape , Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse can fetch the appropriate color, thin your deck and create a shuffle effect if needed.

If you happen to have Heroic Intervention I would recommend adding it but it is definitely more than what you've indicated your budget per card is.

I understand that you are posting a deck based on cards you have so that means some cards are acting as filler. When you get a chance I would suggest cutting:

Bone Picker, Elfhame Druid, Knight of Malice, Overgrown Armasaur, Thorn Elemental, Untamed Kavu, Verdant Force, Gift of Growth, and Verdant Rebirth.

Cards I would suggest adding:

2x Llanowar Elves

3x Tendershoot Dryad

3x Sporecrown Thallid

1x Saproling Migration

2x Song of Freyalise

If you need to make more room for some of these card suggestions then you might want to trim copies of Deathbloom Thallid because of how much removal right now is exile based.

If you want to compare a deck idea you can view my ideas for saps I have 2 different deck ideas B/G: Dom Fungal Sap and W/G: W/G Saps.

Best of luck with the deck.
