I think you need a way to generate something to sacrifice to keep pumping your creatures with the sacrifice-to-add-counters mechanics. Something like From Beyond would be useful as it generates a creature each turn (and they can be stacked) that can be sacrificed for mana or for your purposes. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet helps with this idea, but 3x of the single card won't be reliable by itself.
I know that From Beyond is green, but Spire of Industry and/or dual lands like Blooming Marsh and/or Hissing Quagmire should easily provide the necessary mana to get something like that out. To make room, you do have 32 (!!) creatures, so it shouldn't be too hard to make a bit of room for 2x or 3x of this card or a similar card.
Cool tribal deck! +1 from me!

Does anyone else have a friend that plays non-interactive decks (Baral, Chief of Compliance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord combo, Kydele, Oracle of Kruphix + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept eggs). Those are the decks my friend plays, and quite frankly sick of them. The only deck I play is Karador, Ghost Chieftain reanimator, because that is my only deck that is finished. I want to build an aggro deck to play against his combo/control decks.
Any thoughts on what commander to use? Also, trying to keep this relatively budget (sub ~250).

I'm gonna leave this here instead of starting yet another thread: According to mtggoldfish, Eldrazitron and Bant Eldrazi combined make up roughly 11% of the meta right now. And eldrazitron is only just becoming popular. If this trend continues, i wouldnt be surprised to see eldrazi get nerfed again. It would be much like the consecutive bannings of Deathrite Shaman and Bloodbraid Elf.

As a support card you might have missed, I suggest you look at Sight of the Scalelords. You have no idea how much scarier it is when for seven mana you can play your 9/9 flying-vigilance-haste commander and bash someone for nine damage, or when your entire flight of Dragons doesn't even have to tap. Palace Siege might be helpful to you as well in getting back Dragons whose wings have been clipped. If your playgroup has a significant number of players who cast counterspells, Spellbreaker Behemoth may come in handy for you, though it isn't a Dragon.
As for cards that speed up the deck, I feel bad suggesting Mana Reflection since you have a budget, but if you don't mind helping speed up the rest of the table, you can instead run Zhur-Taa Ancient, Dictate of Karametra, or Rites of Flourishing. Explosive Vegetation and Cultivate (same effect and cost as Kodama's Reach) can help you find more lands, and you can use Darksteel Ingot if you're looking for another mana rock.
It looks like you don't have any Equipment to protect Karrthus from being targeted, like Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, or Whispersilk Cloak. I gotta warn you that your entire boardstate and game plan can be ruined by anyone who casts Rite of Replication on Karrthus. I'm a Karrthus player myself; I've seen it happen.
My final statement is that if you want to look at my Karrthus deck for ideas, it's Thunder of Dragons. That deck was built with a less strict budget, but the idea and goals are the same. Overall, I like your deck and I want to see more players build on this commander.
