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!

I would suggest adding more Dinos that have "Enrage" in order to take advantage of having 4x Forerunner of the Empire in. For instance, Needletooth Raptor is great for removing small to medium threats. Polyraptor is a great card to take advantage of this, obviously. So is Siegehorn Ceratops , though the Siegehorn doesn't pair well with Marauding Raptor

Hey, good budget version of Gishath.
Congregation at Dawn ($2 at CardKingdom) and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can search for Dinos/Dino and put them/it on top of your library before you attack with Gishath making sure that you cheat a Dino/Dinos onto the battlefield with the attack. Tracker can get any Dino who has trample and there's quite a few including Quartzwood. Shared Summons can get any two creatures into your hand which includes Forerunner and an enrage Dino.
Garruk's Uprising is a good repeatable draw and trample source with Dinos. Getting both these abilities from a three drop enchantment is helpful especially with Quartzwood. Rhythm of the Wild makes Gishath uncounterable as well as a haste enabler for other Dinos or a +1/+1 counter source to help against Marauding/Forerunner's damage to a creature. Jeska's Will can make ramp to cast a fast Gishath for as low as five mana. Make seven or more red mana with Will then add any one white mana and any one green mana.
Otepec Huntmaster as a ramp source is better than Kinjalli's Caller because Huntmaster is also a haste enabler for a Dino and rarely will you have white mana turn one to cast Caller. Apex Altisaur is a big Dino who's an upgrade for Burning Sun's Avatar repeatable fight with enrage and it fights an opponent's creature when it ETB.
Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista would help color fixing because then Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Mountain Valley can search for a dual land and Battle lands have interaction with lots of basic lands. Path of Ancestry is a good budget Rainbow land for tribal since repeatable scry is helpful. Mosswort Bridge's hideaway can easily be triggered with Dinos. Some other budget lands are Battlefield Forge, Naya Panorama, Ash Barrens.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Highland Weald
- Timber Gorge
- Tranquil Expanse
- Gruul Guildgate
- Vivid Crag
- Vivid Meadow
- Graypelt Refuge
- Shamanic Revelation
- Alpha Authority
- Kinjalli's Caller
- Burning Sun's Avatar
- Siegehorn Ceratops
- Whispersilk Cloak
- Raging Regisaur
- Gratuitous Violence
Good luck with your deck.

I'm thinking what would be fun in this deck is going with a fight theme. Load up with all the good fight cards and creature cards like Siegehorn Ceratops, Silverclad Ferocidons, Snapping Sailback,Spitemare, Boros Reckoner, Sporeweb Weaver.
From my understanding damage from fighting is not combat damage, so Tajic, Legion's Edge could be an interesting route to take. If your just using fight as removal.

ScionsStillLive, i'll admit you do have a point but dropping to 18 creatures in a tribal deck seems like a rather low number. What Dino would you suggest replace Siegehorn Ceratops? It has to be relatively low cmc, and can't be a Generic Big Boi - it has to have some synergy with the themes of this deck.

ScionsStillLive, according to EDHREC the average number of lands in a Zacama deck is 36. Cutting down to 34 for a bit more interaction doesn't seem too detrimental. Yes, the Siegehorn Ceratops is a sad weak little poopoo saur, but until a better low cmc Enrage naya dino comes out itll keep its spot.

ScionsStillLive, Siegehorn Ceratops does...kind of suck. I'll admit I wish I had a better dino for the slot. I think your suggestion is a good one, i'm just hesitant on making the swap because i'll be losing a dinosaur and i'll be losing a potentially great option for an Enrage Trigger. Honestly, I wish there were just more viable early game Enrage Dinos out there to choose from. Crazy idea...but what if I were to cut Kessig Wolf Run to make room for Primal Might? Both are sort of in the same slot in terms of functionality...but the land isn't quite as useful.
