Howdy! Gishath is a fun choice for dinosaur tribal, can't go too wrong!
In terms of general advice for cuts, I'd try to evaluate the cards in terms of if it wins the game or furthers your gameplan for the deck. For example, in your current decklist, Slayer's Cleaver doesn't seem to gel with either your ramp or dino matters themes, and it strikes me as a dead draw.
Also, while cool, Morophon, the Boundless unfortunately has the color identity of all 5 colors, so you can't "legally" run it with your current commander.
All in all though, I'd recommend focusing on cards that you enjoy playing, even if it's not "optimal!"
So with that out of the way, here are some cards I'd recommend cutting hahaha XD Frilled Deathspitter Thrash of Raptors Territorial Hammerskull Ravenous Daggertooth Frenzied Raptor Bonded Horncrest Rallying Roar Huatli's Spurring Slayer's Cleaver Overgrowth (There are cheaper cmc options that will both ramp AND color fix for you), Strength of the Pack .
Those are all cards that strike me as cool, but maybe worth cutting.
As for suggestions, Ikoria brought about a LOT of cool dinosaurs! Quartzwood Crasher can put in some work! I'd play Titanoth Rex over Ancient Brontodon as you can still cycle it for less mana, both are just big dumb creatures! It would take some cuts, but I've seen some people run Kaheera, the Orphanguard as a companion for your commander, so that could help you make some cuts as well? And for flavor Zilortha, Strength Incarnate is a flavor win!
I'd also recommend Kinjalli's Sunwing . It's a "hate dinosaur" that has evasion and can stall opponents enough that you can summon your big boy dinosaur! Speaking of, Apex Altisaur and Zacama, Primal Calamity are the biggest.
The thing I'd probably recommend adding over anything is Pyrohemia . It's a board wipe in a pinch (something that is needed to get to late game) and allows for some cheeky interactions that can be frustrating to deal with. It turns Siegehorn Ceratops Snapping Sailback and Bellowing Aegisaur into creatures that keep getting bigger or pump your entire team all while clearing the board for bigger attacks. Not to mention it also is a handy source for one ping damage for enrage triggers.
Hope these suggestions help! Happy hunting!

Anax, Hardened in the Forge , Archetype of Aggression , Garruk's Packleader , Nylea's Forerunner , Quartzwood Crasher and Warmonger Hellkite might be some cards of interest. My Strength Incarnate deck might have some other useful cards, but those are the best I can think of.

Hey, well done on a budget.
Command Tower , Exotic Orchard and Path of Ancestry are staple budget rainbow lands in Commander. Currently Farseek and Three Visits can't search for a white dual land only Cinder Glade . The new Snow dual lands Alpine Meadow and Arctic Treeline are two different land types one being Plains.
Court of Bounty is a good card with Dinos since it can potentially cheat them from your hand onto the battlefield or it lets you put a land. The monarch can be repeatable draw and Dinos can be good blockers to keep the monarch. Berserkers' Onslaught can give Gishath double strike and if he does combat damage to a player then you trigger his ability twice. Double strike makes all other Dinos more powerful and has bonkers interaction with Quartzwood Crasher .
Some changes to consider:
- Command Tower --> 1x Forest
- Exotic Orchard --> 1x Mountain
- Path of Ancestry --> 1x Plains
- Alpine Meadow --> Wind-Scarred Crag
- Arctic Treeline --> Graypelt Refuge
- Court of Bounty --> Colossal Majesty
- Berserkers' Onslaught --> Thundering Spineback
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start on a low budget.
Sol Ring , Arcane Signet and Command Tower are three staples cards for Commander. Dinos and Gishath can benefit from ramp since Gishath is 8 mana and the better Dinos are also high CMC. Ramp can come from mana rocks such as Sol Ring, but you're playing green thus you also have access to lots of other ramp options (land ramp spells, mana dorks, land auras). Land ramp spells can search for and put a dual land or basic land onto the battlefield. Mana dorks are creatures who can tap for mana and land auras are enchantments that can enchant a land to tap that land for more mana then you can normally make.
- Sol Ring
- Arcane Signet
- Drover of the Mighty
- Faeburrow Elder
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Farseek : can search for a dual land such as Cinder Glade or Alpine Meadow
- Fertile Ground
Some budget Dinos to consider adding:
- Quartzwood Crasher : can create Dino tokens with trample.
- Etali, Primal Storm : attack ability gives you a lot of value in multiplayer Commander.
- Regisaur Alpha
- Annoyed Altisaur
- Realmwalker : Changelings are Dinos.
- Silverclad Ferocidons
Creature tutors, repeatable draw sources and other ways to cheat Dinos onto the battlefield are all helpful effects to have.
If you would like I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good budget version of Gishath. Nice Regal Behemoth :)
Mentioned above, double strike with Gishath gives you two triggers, but Gishath is nine mana and you want to take advantage of it's haste. You want to get the double strike effect the turn you play Gishath, but if you have to also cast a card to give double strike you need even more than nine mana. Duelist's Heritage can give Gishath double strike for no mana and turns before Gishath it can give other Dinos double strike.
You have a few repeatable draw effects, but consider Court of Bounty ? It can be repeatable draw as well as land ramp or cheat a Dino onto the battlefield. Bounty helps Regal as another way for you to become the monarch.
Consider budget creature tutors Mwonvuli Beast Tracker and Fierce Empath ? Empath can get Regal or any other 6 CMC or higher Dino. Tracker can get Quartzwood Crasher or any other Dino who has trample. Either of these tutors can get Regal and that's helpful because it's the best Dino for ramp into Gishath. Tracker also puts the creature you tutor for on top of your library thus if you have the mana you could tutor for a Dino before you attack with Gishath.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Rally the Ranks
- Blackblade Reforged
- Vanquisher's Banner
- Snapping Sailback
- Siegehorn Ceratops
- Commander's Sphere
A small amount of additional p/t for Dinos from anthems is not worth taking up card spots since Dinos are already big. Getting draw from casting a Dino is not as good as draw from a Dino ETB since most Dinos are high CMC and you don't cast Dinos you cheat onto the battlefield with Gishath.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget version of Atla. Your deck name gave me a laugh :)
Fanatical Devotion is another no mana cost sac outlet that can sac an Egg at instant speed. Fanatical can save Atla from most board wipes or removal spells. High Market is a land that's a sac outlet and Crop Rotation can tutor for it.
Open the Armory can tutor for Greaves of Staff, two important equipment to have more access too. Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can tutor for a creature with trample and put it on top of your library to then cheat it onto the battlefield with an Egg.
Quartzwood Crasher and Giant Adephage are two budget big creature upgrades. Both of them have trample, can create their own armies of trampling creatures, create a token to copy or populate and have excellent interaction. Angel of Sanctions is nonpermanent removal on a flying creature and if you get to embalm then the Angel token is very good to copy or populate.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Blossoming Sands
- Graypelt Refuge
- Kazandu Refuge
- Rugged Highlands
- Desolation Twin
- Maelstrom Colossus
- Enlisted Wurm
- Scute Mob
- Ageless Entity
- Bull Cerodon
- Woolly Thoctar
- Colossal Majesty
Desolation, Maelstrom and Enlisted abilities only trigger if you cast them not when you cheat them onto the battlefield. Without their triggers they're very lackluster.
Good luck with your deck.
