Creature — Human Warrior
If Combat Celebrant hasn't been exerted this turn, you may exert it as it attacks. When you do, untap all other creatures you control and after this phase, there is an additional combat phase. (An exerted creature can't untap during your next untap step.)

Combat Celebrant Discussion

Hey, this looks like a solid list so far, I like it, but there are a few things I highly recommend to make it much faster and more consistent
First off, I would highly recommend more card draw. I see you have some, but it could definitely use at least Rhystic Study and Sylvan Library. Those are possibly the best card draw engines in the format. Skullclamp also looks amazing in this deck.
Secondly, some more mana acceleration would greatly help the speed of the deck. I would recommend at the very least Birds of Paradise, Noble Hierarch, Bloom Tender, Mana Crypt, and Deathrite Shaman. Commander's Sphere, Thran Dynamo, Mana Vault, and Gilded Lotus also wouldn't hurt, but they aren't as essential.
I know they're not warriors and might seem kinda boring, but they are crucial to a successful deck. I would also recommend cutting the lands the enter the battlefield tapped in favor of all the fetchlands and original duals if you can afford them or can proxy them. Considering this optimized landbase, Farseek, Nature's Lore, and Skyshroud Claim all become viable options if you need them since they hit shocklands and the og duals as opposed to Cultivate and Harvest Season (though I don't think you really will need them).
As for cuts, at first glance, Archetype of Aggression doesn't seem overly strong considering the bulk of most of your creatures. Combat Celebrant seems redundant with Najeela, and Thrilling Encore is probably just better than Garna, the Bloodflame, but you might need to maintain your warrior count, you've done more testing than I with this deck, so that's up to you. Aggravated Assault seems unnecessary for the same reason as celebrant, but it's not even a warrior. Wretched Confluence is actually surprisingly weak, I'd recommend cutting that. Chance for Glory isn't really the greatest; it does nothing the vast majority of the game, sometimes all of the game. You're in blue, just run Time Warp if you want an extra turn. Kolaghan's Command is dissapointing in edh as compared to modern. If you're looking for something that hits multiple targets, you can run Decimate and Curtains' Call. I'd also recommend Austere Command for this. Noxious Revival seems kinda unnecessary for this kind of deck, but it's fine.
A few random suggestions to end off, I'd recommend at least having one or two emergency counterspells like Pact of Negation, Negate, and/or Disallow/Counterspell. I would also highly recommend a Craterhoof Behemoth. That thing slaughters people. Eldrazi Monument also seems great in this deck due to all the tokens you're generating.
Sorry, I know that's a lot more suggestions for additions than cuts, but that speaks to the power of the list you already have here. It's kinda tricky balancing the warrior count with other "better" options. Trust me, I played a Gishath, Sun's Avatar deck back when he was released, and keeping dino numbers high while trying to run as many cards that are just better was rough, but it can be done. Keep at it!

Since you have Helm of the Host you can add Combat Celebrant as a second way to get infinite combat steps aside from your commander. Giving Combat Celebrant vigilance also removes the downside of the exert ability!

Maybe Combat Celebrant for extra damage

If you like combat, there’s a few cards you could add to keep those combat steps coming all night. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker plus Combat Celebrant equals infinite combat steps, and Hellkite Charger plus Sword of Feast and Famine equals the same. Good job so far and I hope I helped in some way.

No, because Combat Celebrant says "if this card has not been exerted"

Had a question about a couple of card options. I am slowly getting the deck together but I don't have the cash for a few things atm cough Cradle... But I'm slowly putting it together. Until I can snag a Null Rod would Titania's Song work in the slot? I know it's sub optimal but there are only a few cEDH in my meta. The other sub would be Growing Rites of Itlamoc untill I can rack up enough to throw into a Cradle. The biggest question I wanted to ask is have you considered Combat Celebrant as a slot for an additional way to go off with Kiki combo?

Cheers for the recommendations, you hit the nail on the head that I need something with a bit of extra oomph to get the deck to that next level.
Vigor is one of my big go-to cards in aggro decks, usually -- Here I was more worried I wouldn't be able to use my enrage effects, but I have two in the deck, it's not something to worry about really, and I would probably remove the Silverclad Ferocidons to get Vigor in anyway, the Ranging Raptors would be useful in the early game anyways.
With Combat Celebrant, I just had a thought -- Would you be able to copy it's effect with Flamerush Rider? Since the token it makes comes in attacking and you exert CC as it attacks, or would it narrowly miss the timing?
Hellkite Charger is a creature I'd already been thinking about, but you're right about needing that redundancy.
Also wow, last time I looked Dolmen Gate was close to $12, absolutely an option now.
The land destruction spells you mentioned with Vigor are something to think about too -- Especially as you point out that Radha, Ventmaw and DD can get a butt-ton of mana going with extra combat steps.
