Optimator on FIGHT ME COWARD!

Conventional wisdom is 36-38 lands is where you wanna be. I almost always do 36.
I would cut Reckless Crew, Rune of Sustenance and Rune of Speed.
One thing I thought of, when putting my list together, is that creatures with doublestrike are extra good because of the damage bonus Bruenor gives. Reyav, Master Smith helps with that, but it's only one card. In the maybeboard of my deck I listed a bunch of doublestrikers. I think Mirran Crusader, Aven Sunstriker, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Blade Historian, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Boros Swiftblade, Heavenly Blademaster, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Skyhunter Skirmisher, and Oketra the True are some stand-outs. It's hard to fit them all in but a few might be good.
I really like your selection of creatures though! Got all the good ones. Nice and cheap, too. Swiftblade Vindicator is an excellent inclusion.

You definitely have the beginning of a solid list here. I'd recommend dropping Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, especially if you don't have more Haste anthems. On that note, I do like your inclusion of Hammer of Purphoros. You could also run Fervor or even Emblem of the Warmind as a couple more redundant options. Goro-Goro, Disciple of Ryusei is another potential option that's also on theme.
Sword of the Chosen is okay, but a bit narrow if you wanted to look for a cut. Zeriam, Golden Wind could also be another potential cut; it's narrow since it is your only Griffin in the deck. Tori D'Avenant, Fury Rider anthems up your whole team, and gives pseudo-vigilance for keeping blockers up. Ratadrabik of Urborg, Hofri Ghostforge, and Garna, the Bloodflame can help round out your creature reanimation/recursion options.
I hope some of these suggestions are helpful.

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

Well, I don't know how well it fits, but Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is one of my favorite white cards and is in general a pretty strong flier that hits for eight and doesn't tap. And Indestructible doesn't hurt.

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is kinda mana intensive, but can win you the game with all it’s keywords. Also surprised not to see a couple white staples, Tragic Arrogance and Darksteel Mutation are just phenomenal re moral in the commander format. Also, you’ve got a Boros Signet on your main list and Arcane Signet on the maybe board, but Arcane is just superior to Boros just because it doesn’t cost the mana the turn you play it. Though I’d recommend both, you could really use more ramp…
