I honestly dont know. If the opponents creature etbs first would its ability trigger before youre own creature etbs? Hopefully thats the case because otherwise Bishop of Binding is a terrible card to play in the deck. An example, since they choose bishop you get ghalta. Bishop exiles ghalta while you are most likely tapped out. The opponent swings for 13 on their following turn.

Just trying to figure out how dubious challenge works because I made a bant version of this but gave up since I didnt know who entered first and when their ability triggered. Yours deck looks great. Chaos Maw is really good if the opponents creature enters and its ability triggers before your bouncer etbs. But since idk the ruling, it could be awesome or it could be the worst card suggestion ever. Good luck!

I do like Sweltering Suns here. I used to run it with Radiant Flames. I run it as a 2 of in the side. The sideboard is basically different removal packages and will depend on your LGS meta...Which is why I didnt post a sideboard, although i can post cards i use. I vary the numbers, but the cards i like using are Chaos Maw, Never / Return, Fatal Push,Lightning Strike, Sweltering Suns, By Force, Archfiend of Ifnir, Cut / Ribbons, Vraska's Contempt, Unlicensed Disintegration, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Fumigate, Doomfall, Hour of Glory... hopefully you get the idea. It is just so i have the ability to change the removal package. Do people play a lot of artifacts? More by force and abrades. Weak agro and tokens? Sweepers. Gods? Exiles. Big dudes? Unlicense. Planeswalkers? Never return. Like i said before, it just depends on your meta =)

Hey friend! Love the deck. Kresh is one of my favorites -- I've got a build and primer myself @ Blood-Braided Beatdown (Primer); go check it out! I took mine in a slightly different direction than you did, making Fling and friends my primary win conditions, but you might still be able to find some new cards in there.

As for directions your build could grow, I think you could make a lot of incremental improvements with individual cards. Stuff like Seed Guardian, for example, currently serve as your "flex spots" you can cut for edits if needed (I'd put Vile Redeemer over it, probably). Also cut cards that don't scale to EDH well, like Bolt and Make Obsolete, in favor of Earthquake and Fall of the Titans or something. Random suggestions are Dying Wish and Feed the Pack.

In general, I'd recommend increasing your creature density as much as possible -- put in Chaos Maw or Skirsdag Cultist for Devour in Flames, for instance, since Devour won't put counters on Kresh when it dies. Put in "fight"ing creatures instead of damage-based removal. And so forth. And then solidify a win condition: is it Soulblast? Overwhelming Stampede? Surestrike Trident? plain Voltron? and so forth.

Hope this helps! Hit me up if I can clarify or assist! Kresh is near and dear to my heart and I love the start you've gotten with this build.

I did think about that combo, I do have the cards, the problem is dealing with the hate. The group of people I play commander with don't give me much room so the number of counters are necessary. I am going to add a Eldrazi Monument to counteract the global 3 damage from Chaos Maw and combine it with Soul-Scar Mage
