AEther Sting Discussion

I like the group slug in combination with a pillowfort idea. Gisela's wording offers a pretty unique opportunity. Triggered effects that would deal 1 damage to you while she is on the board deal no damage to you instead, but double damage to opponents. Manabarbs, AEther Sting, Battle Strain, Burning Earth, Heat of Battle, Rampaging Ferocidon, City of Brass, Talisman of Conviction, Battlefield Forge are all cards that would have their negative effect negated if Gisela is on the field, while opponents would suffer more.
Ankh of Mishra, Psychogenic Probe, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar, Repercussion, Spellshock, Zo-Zu the Punisher would all be cards that have their negative effects mitigated with Gisela out and opponents would suffer a lot more.
You could complement this game plan with pieces like War's Toll, Caltrops, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Glowrider, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse to tax and slow them down while all the slug effects eat away at life totals.
I feel like there's quite a bit of space to be explored in this niche for Gisela.

Torbran is really neat. Have you considered these? Manabarbs , Embermaw Hellion , Spellshock , Electrickery , Scouring Sands , Volcanic Vision , Knollspine Dragon , Ancient Runes , Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip, Outpost Siege , AEther Sting , Repercussion , Balefire Dragon , Commune with Lava , Sunbird's Invocation

I would cut Mine Layer, AEther Sting, Krenko, Mob Boss, Form of the Dragon, Maralen of the Mornsong, Sword of Kaldra, Armillary Sphere, Surveyor's Scope, Butcher of Malakir, Grave Pact, Reassembling Skeleton, Geth's Grimoire, and Traveler's Amulet. Cards I would consider adding are Sol Ring!!, Lightning Greaves, Phyrexian Arena, Coalition Relic, and Painful Quandary.

Here's some idea's you may not have considered. Obviously your meta-game is different than mine, but in my multi-player commander games, we get a lot of board wipes. As a result, I tend to ignore 'number of creatures you control' effects because they don't help much when you don't have any. Mana Echoes is cute but I think there are better uses of that card slot.
I hope you like these suggestions. Good luck.
