On-topic for what you're planning, you can use Ancestral Mask and Nylea's Colossus to get something really big before you rumble in. There's also passive damage you can stack up with Overabundance , Mana Barbs, Sulfuric Vortex , Court of Ire , et cetera to whittle people down. Sandwurm Convergence makes a lot of beef. It's mana intensive but Pyrohemia and Rite of Passage means you can have a thing that lives while you keep pinging everything. There's also the aforementioned Helix Pinnacle if you're looking at having a lot of mana.
Of course, if you think some thing demand a more personal touch, you could slam a Form of the Dragon and off someone yourself.

It's worth noting that when transitioning from standard to modern, a lot of cards that seem like powerful contributors to a tribe end up being worse than non-tribal counterparts. For instance, Thunderherd Migration is probably better than the standard alternative Beneath the Sands , but it's probably worse than Rampant Growth , Cultivate , or maybe Sylvan Scrying with the right nonbasic to fetch. Drover of the Mighty is another that seems strong as a 3/3, but if you're tapping it for mana most of the time anyway, something like Birds of Paradise , Arbor Elf , Joraga Treespeaker , Incubation Druid , Whisperer of the Wilds , or Ilysian Caryatid might be more efficient. The only other suggestion I have is to consider adding ways to recurrently trigger enrage. Forerunner of the Empire is a pretty common option, but I can also see Pyrohemia , Harbinger of the Hunt , Raging Regisaur , Spikeshot Elder , or Power of Fire being used with varying pros and cons. Some enrage lists I see also make use of damage trigger shenanigans on cards like Arcbond and Rite of Passage . A possible cut could be Shifting Ceratops since it's generally more of a sideboard card. Otherwise, I'd cut any enrage trigger that isn't either repeatable or very cheap. Reckless Rage is great, but Tilonalli's Crown could just as easily be Dual Shot or something to that effect. A final note I'd make is that you may be able to take advantage of some of the bigger enrage dinos like Snapping Sailback and Silverclad Ferocidons . I wouldn't normally recommend them, however, Etali and a lot of ramp go a long way toward making them viable.

TheoryCrafter I put Raging Swordtooth in and out of the deck around times, but it falls flat usually overall. I'll probably order a Marauding Raptor soon enough as it doesn't kill too many of my creatures and has good synergy. Rite of Passage is a maybe at this point.

Have you considered Marauding Raptor or Raging Swordtooth ? With Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor already in your deck, the damage getting dished out will trigger their enrage abilities. Playing Polyraptor with Marauding Raptor already on the battlefield will force a mandatory draw if you're gonna lose no matter what else you do. Also, you could also add Rite of Passage .
