Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.)

Would you consider Mirari's Wake? Its great.
Also there are some cool dinosaurs you might not have considered: Mirror Entity, Realmwalker, Chameleon Collossus, and Taurean Mauler.
Also i feel like Odric, Lunarch Marshal or a Similar card might be worth running even if he isn't a dinosaur.
Finally any thoughts about Eldrazi Monument or Akroma's Memorial? Those can be good... Anyway cheers and have fun!!!

Looks fun! Here are a few ideas.
Taurean Mauler effectively a dragon. Grows over time too.
Liquimetal Torque make perms artifacts and easier to remove. Especially for mono red.
Arcbond pet red card of mine. Can finish games or be a boardwipe the size you want it to be with a little planning.

Ok here is my take on the budget side. TLDR: Land total and Ramp increased. A lot of subpar removal taken out, and better ones put in. Some cheaper dragons/shapeshifters added to smooth out curve and provide cheap dragon drops for commander ability. Most importantly is added some value for getting extra dragons from cards, either by creating tokens or playing them for free from hand/deck. Added in 3 additional wincons similar to Terror of the Peaks to make it easier to win just by populating board and swinging in. Note that the wincons also can serve as creature removal, which is why so many of the outs are instant/sorcery removals

My thoughts Show
Wand of Wonder: Deluxe Chaos Wand for one more mana to cast (but the same for actually activating). Even if you can't rely on getting more than one spell (it'll "only" happen 55% of the time), the fact that you don't have to guess which opponent has the best spell cards in their deck (hell, you get to reveal quite a bit of information for everyone to see) and get to choose among three cards makes the risk of whiffing with stuff like Torment of Hailfire or Elvish Promenade much less likely. Prosper obviously enjoys this, even if the exta red pip makes it a bit harder to reliably cast off an impulse draw. Oh and note that whatever spell cards you don't choose to cast stays exiled.
Ancient Brass Dragon: I was annoyed about the color assignment of the chromatic dragons and I'm annoyed about this. Hell, now the visual color doesn't even apply; how is a shiny Chaotic Good creature mono-black? The actual card is an OK Timmy creature. No haste or self-protection along with unreliability isn't super great, but it'll occassionaly be quite funny when it gets in hits multiple turns in a row.
Minsc & Boo, Timeless Heroes: I don't see much appeal for running him as a commander beyond fan-service. Anyway, changelings are also Hamsters so you could fling e.g. a Taurean Mauler to net the draw. Oh and with a Mirror Box you can make extra Boos!

Thanks for all the suggestions. Sorry I haven't been very active on replying, been dealing with personal stuff so all I've been doing is Deckcycling my deck. So here we go, time to reply.
Mortlocke: Gishath is so far the only commander that cares about Dinosaurs. Zacama, Primal Calamity is great, but has not one line of text saying dinosaur, Atla Palani, Nest Tender has a similar effect to Gishath, but she only gets one creature and again, doesn't care if it's a dinosaur or not. Morophon, the Boundless is a good commander for tribal, but I feel like Morophon should aid tribes that have zero support or commander options. Kaheera, the Orphanguard is a good lord, but she loses red. So yes, as of right now Gishath should be the end all be all dinosaur commander in my mind.
The comment about the counter triggered ability, so far there are only 9 spells that counter a triggered ability and most of them only do that or activated abilities, so I don't see them being used against me or more then once. I also have a burning hatred for blue players and tend to target them until a bigger threat arrives. But yes, every effect can be countered. I will go and change that in my description.
BmoreBeast: I would run Urban Daggertooth, but I feel that the next time dinosaurs get a real boost, they won't be using enrage (hopefully I am wrong). That's why I am slowly moving away from enrage triggers and more so towards trample effects. If the next time dinosaurs get support and it is with enrage triggers, I will think about adding Urban Daggertooth to the deck. I've also been wanting to move away from Planeswalkers and focus more so on dinosaurs.
iwulf411: THANK YOU! Thank you for playtesting the deck. I love hearing people testing out my deck and giving me feedback. Warms my cold heart. :D
Titanoth Rex is in the deck because he is a large trampler and I have been slowly morphing the deck towards dinosaurs with trample. Siegehorn Ceratops is in the deck because she's a 2/2 for 2 with enrage that makes her bigger. So early game I can drop her in and cump block if need be and make her stronger. Raging Regisaur is on the coping block if we never see anymore dinosaurs with enrage. Taurean Mauler can come out without any argument from me. I will find a ramp spell to replace it.
I tried to cut lands in my commander decks, but everytime I do, I always get mana screwed in the get go. 38 just seems to be my sweet spot. I will consider going down to 36, but 34 just seems way to low for me. Ancient Tomb is a great ramp spell, yes it hurts me, but 40 life means I can use it 10 times before it gets too scary for me. If I ever get an original dual land, this will hands down come out for one of them. Bonders' Enclave & War Room, you are right but I lacked room in the deck for card draw, so I threw them in. These two would be switched out for original dual lands. Cavern of Souls is simply in the deck because I HATE blue. Forbidden Orchard has been on the cutting board several times, however, its always survived because I normally use it as a political tool or if I'm in a game with my wife, to keep her alive. Yes I know, nepotism, but I am a Mardu player at heart.
Skyshroud Claim will defiantly go back in. I cut it early on but you have a point, especially if I ever get my hands on an original dual land. Cultivate or Kodama's Reach were both in the deck at the start, but the more I played the harder it was for me to justify them because I kept cutting basic lands to the point where there were times where I could only find one land. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip is a pet card of mine, but I cut it from the deck long ago because a lot of times I never could get it to flip due to never having enough creatures. I will consider adding it again. Elemental Bond I will consider re-adding as well. Birds of Paradise will be a maybe, if I don't go pure dinosaurs but Bloom Tender will be a no because she requires perms to be out. Fauna Shaman and Elvish Piper will be a maybe again because I have been considering going pure dinosaurs.
Thank you again for playtesting the deck.
bushido_man96: I'd love to see your list! I always like seeing what others come up with.
I run the reduce cost creatures to get Gishath out earlier or if a high costing dinosaur gets stuck in my hand for I have no ways of cheating them out anymore or returning them to the deck. However, your comments have won me over and the next time dinosaurs get support (I've heard rumors that Ixalan may be getting a new set next year), I will turn it into a pure dinosaur build.
Thank you all again for the comments. Once things calm down in my personal life and I return to work and pay off these medical bills, I will defiantly take a look at revamping Ixalan Park with your suggests and some of my own. Till then, keep the comments rolling and the upvotes a coming. :D

Taurean Mauler too.
Chandra's Ignition would be really good. Not budget though.

Lookin' good! Assuming this is a Commander deck, you can change the format in the edit page - makes it easier for people to find and interact with. Also lets you set a creature as your Commander!
