SynergyBuild, thanks again for all your suggestions.
I'll test some of those changes the next time I play with this deck (can't use Orcish Lumberjack yet because I don't have it).
My point about Caldera Hellion is that, even though it costs more than the sweepers you've mentioned, it is a creature, and it can be tutored with green tutors (e.g. Chord of Calling and Worldly Tutor, which I'll use in this deck when possible), so I can search for a sweeper in some situations. I don't know if this versatility is enough to justify its inclusion (maybe isn't), but I want to test it before changing it.

Kavu Lair (I hate giving opponents cards), Wood Elves (love that you can use the forest immediately, and doesn't die as easily, but 1 mana is just better in my opinion), Sakura-Tribe Elder (for similar reasons!), Caldera Hellion (Useful, but 5 mana is a lot for a sweeper in comparison to Rolling Earthquake, Electrickery, Pyroclasm, or Sweltering Suns) would be my drops for the dorks.

"Never forget: the lightning starts at the ground."
One quick not: Caldera Hellion is a jund card, not a grixis one.

Westvale Abbey Flip -> Stomping Ground because Westvale Abbey is illegal in your deck because Ormendahl is a black card. It sucks, but it's the same reason why I can't put Archangel Avacyn Flip in my Karametra, God of Harvests deck.

Have you tried to put some infect? and i would recommend Wound Reflection its great with Havoc festival
and Caldera Hellion its a boardwipe and can attack the same turn if Exava its on the board

Very cool concept!
I worry about the fragility of depending on your commander for your combos, although a Boros commander is certainly great for this deck. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, might be the best one for this deck, but I bet Razia, Boros Archangel, would work well, too. I might suggest that Avacyn go in the 99 as a trigger for Repercussion.
Neheb, the Eternal also seems broken for this deck.
In terms of spells that might reasonably consistently trigger Repercussion, have you tested with additional, efficient "...damage to each creature" spells like Balefire Dragon, Anger of the Gods, Bloodfire Dwarf, Bloodfire Kavu, Breath of Darigaaz, Caldera Hellion, Cave-In, Chandra, Flamecaller, Devastating Dreams, Faultline, Firespout, Firestorm, Incendiary Command, Pyroclasm, Kozilek's Return, Krark-Clan Shaman, Magma Vein, Martyr of Ashes (+ Proclamation of Rebirth), Meteor Blast, Pyrohemia, Rupture, Ryusei, the Falling Star, Scourge of Kher Ridges, Scouring Sands, Slagstorm, Slice and Dice (cycled), Starstorm, Subterranean Tremors, Sulfurous Blast, Sweltering Suns, Thunder Dragon, Tremor, Electrickery, Volcanic Fallout, Volcanic Spray, Whipflare, or Yamabushi's Storm?
It seems like tutor, ramp, win with direct creature damage is the path to victory with or without Avacyn, so the more cards dedicated to those three things, the better.
