Shifting Ceratops

Creature — Dinosaur

This spell can't be countered.

Protection from blue (This creature can't be dealt damage, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything blue and anything blue attached to this immediately falls off.)

: Shiting Ceratops gains your choice of reach, trample, or haste until end of turn.

Nice deck, full of flavour. I think there's a few things you could do to make it pop even more...

First thing that comes to mind is Molten Echoes. Obviously this won't work on your legendaries, but the potential for supercharging your etbs (and especially Gishath trigger mass-etb party) is too sweet to pass up.

Seize the Day would also be a nice addition, potentially game-ending if people are dumb enough to let Gish hang around for a turn.

I would also consider Warstorm Surge despite its high cmc. Again, this could just end the game if you hit the right dinos off Gishath.

In terms of what to cut, I would probably say Gideon's Intervention and Cartouche of Strength are up there, although of course you know your own local meta better than I do. Obviously I'm loath to suggest you cut dinos, since they are the lifeblood of the deck, but if I had to choose the weakest I'd go with Colossal Dreadmaw, Snapping Sailback and Shifting Ceratops

Finally on mana base and ramp, I think you could swap a basic for a Cultivate just to push the tempo a bit, and maybe consider bringing in a couple of tap duals (e.g. Wooded Ridgeline) and stuff that searches for Forests like Nature's Lore and Wood Elves for a bit of mana fixing

Hope that helps!

I'd add 6 or so lands. There's just not near enough there. It also seems you're expecting a really long game with cards to reshuffle stuff into your library and gain life. You start at 40 health. If you're taking that much damage, the extra 5 here or there aren't saving you. And reshuffling cards from the graveyard into the library is only going to be useful if you're playing against a mill deck or you somehow draw your entire deck. Both somewhat uncommon situations.

Cards under $3 that you might consider:
Nature's Lore
Rishkar's Expertise
Rampant Growth
Kodama's Reach
Colossal Majesty
Return of the Wildspeaker
Beast Within
Nature's Claim
Thunderfoot Baloth
Rootweaver Druid
Reclamation Sage
Cathar Commando
Knight of Autumn
Qasali Pridemage
Thrashing Brontodon
Ranging Raptors
Regisaur Alpha
Shifting Ceratops
Territorial Hammerskull
Territorial Allosaurus
Topiary Stomper
Atzocan Seer
Tribal Forcemage
Naya Charm
Road of Return
Boros Charm

Cards that I would call easily expendable:
Looming Altisaur
Imperial Ceratops
Wilderness Reclamation
Verdant Haven
Gift of Paradise
Fertile Ground
Oketra's Last Mercy
Rolling Thunder
Serene Remembrance
Elixir of Immortality
Oketra's Monument
Alhammarret's Archive
Sanguine Sacrament
Slice in Twain
Enter the Unknown
Boros Signet
Gruul Signet
Selesnya Signet

Heres a list of things that went through my mind looking at the deck. They are not recommended or necessary but should bee seen as different view on your deck. Who knows maybe you'll find something interesting.

Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Etali, Primal Storm and Ghalta, Primal Hunger feel very odd. Those cards only "win more" and dont contribute to the deck the way constructed is playing out. If u can stick Gishath, Sun's Avatar or Carnage Tyrant the game should be over in 2-3 turns anyways. Your damage trigger will best case reduce it to 2 turns consistently. Ghalta, Primal Hunter needs a lot of power already on the board which indicates you're winning already, making it a bit redundant. And Etali, Primal Storm is fun to play with but considering cards commonly played in pioneer wont do much in a duel.

Switch Shifting Ceratops with Zetalpa, Primal Dawn because Zetalpa is the stronger game 1 threat

I would also Remove Otepec Huntmaster and add some protection or land based ramp

if you only use half the amounts of Regisaur Alpha you could include Relentless Raptor if you want more early game

It also would'nt Hurt to include some early Sweepers like Crush the Weak or Cinderclasm against aggro decks

Some very good dinosaurs to consider:

Deathgorge Scavenger;Rampaging Ferocidon;Ripjaw Raptor;Runic Armasaur

Hey, nice first Dino deck on a low budget, but this isn't Standard. In the deck editor if you change the format of your deck to casual then all the cards will not show up red. I don't think you need white since on low budget all white is doing is making the manabase worse. Two color Gruul (red and green) will simplify your overall deck especially the manabase with mostly basic Forests and basic Mountains.

Some advice for when deck building for a 60 card deck is increase the consistently of drawing the good cards you want to draw more than others. This is done by playing more 4 ofs (4x of a card) then 1 ofs or 2 ofs (1x or 2x of card). Build a core of cards that if you got the perfect hand could be cast one after another which is called a curve. Here's an example on a low budget:

The idea with this curve is to cast Dinos quicker such as 4 CMC 5/4 Shifting Ceratops turn three or 5 CMC 6/6 Quartzwood Crasher turn four. Quartzwood is a powerful Dino who creates just as powerful Dino tokens and this effect is repeatable as long as creatures you control with trample do combat damage to your opponent. Shifting can give itself trample for one mana.

With Dinos ramp is important to cast early therefore make a couple of 1-2 CMC cards that ramp 4 ofs such as Otepec Huntmaster and Drover of the Mighty to have a better chance of having one of these in your opening hand. Huntmaster has the advantage especially with Quartzwood of giving a Dino haste while also reducing the Dino's mana cost.

Good luck with your deck.

+1 for the name. Was my brothers favorite line from Jurassic Park. Also agree with above commenter, Shifting Ceratops is a solid inclusion.

Both Shifting Ceratops and Zacama, Primal Calamity are great versus flyers. The ceratops is amazing versus blue.

Stopping the life gain with stuff like Everlasting Torment or Leyline of Punishment is good alongside stopping the flyers.
