dlamars: Hmmm. Really depends what you're trying to hate on.
Manabarbs hits ramp players.
Rest in Peace hits GY players.
Et cetera :)

I'm in agreement the CMC of the deck is fairly high. I see you have included Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Boros Signet, Solemn Simulacrum. So, here is some food for thought: Moar Land, Kor Cartographer, Burnished Hart, Land Tax, Path to Exile, Weathered Wayfarer, Coalition Relic, Gilded Lotus, Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith, etc. Don't know how you feel about Mana Flare.
So, Brion isn't really a "fast deck". It's hard to Fling a Serra Avatar, because even if you kill somebody with early ramp you're going to scare the hell out of everyone else. I would try and keep the field fairly empty, Blasphemous Act, AEther Flash, Pyrohemia, Wrath of God, all over the place.
As far as what to pull... there are a lot of Fling targets that don't really do their job, or take excessive build up to do so. Taurean Mauler, Thunderblust, etc. Also don't know why Bloodshot Cyclops unless Brion gets tucked? Good luck.

I'm curious. I got myself a copy of Varchild's War-Riders and am quite interested in using it in this deck. The problem is that I fear those pesky 1/1 Survivors who make it into a steep upkeep cost. One solution would be to add stuff that clear the board of small stuff like Pyroclasm and Volcanic Fallout? Or should I go with AEther Flash instead?

I cannot say I know how a pillow fort will work on tariel honestly. I feel you would be better off loading the deck with kill spells and board wipes over the deterring attacker abilities.
I'm not too sure on Mana Tithe it's a counterspell yes, but I feel in most instances they'll just pay the extra 1 mana and be done with it. If you want some kind of control, it's not a counter, but Painful Quandary does make your opponents think twice
I also don't think I would be playing any of the runes of protection, yes the cycle, but you have a 1/6 chance of drawing them against a deck that plays the correct colors or things. I would replace them with either more kill spells, or if you want to keep the pillow fort idea things like Riot Control and other Fog effects.
I'm not sure about Repay in Kind if your deck is going well it seems that you will always be the highest life total which means that you'll usually be getting hurt off it more than it helps you.
Given you are a noncreature centered deck I likewise think Spellshock will end up hurting you a lot more than many other decks.
Keep in mind AEther Flash will apply to anything you pull from a graveyard.
