False Prophet Discussion

Hey DieKnowMight! It looks like you have a lot of suggestions going on here. I'm no expert on Mardu commanders, but I have a few suggestions!
Elspeth, Sun's Champion has a wipe on her -2 that replicates the wipe people have been recommending to you.
Dolmen Gate is pretty solid, acting as damage negation similar to Iroas.
Mother of Runes is another way to protect your commander and can be used offensively to get a free swing in as well!
Stronghold Assassin goes 1 for 1 on creatures with your opponents, worthwhile since you can the creature he sacrifices and him if he dies.
Oreskos Explorer helps search for lands if you are playing against ramp.
Legion Loyalist gives your tiny guys trample, but more importantly ignores tokens.
Flesh Carver drops a big token after he dies and can sacrifice things.

If that is the theme you're going for I feel like there is still a lot of good options you're missing out on. Detention Sphere is great for tokens, False Prophet, Silence the Believers, Summary Dismissal, Final Judgment, Identity Crisis, Merciless Eviction, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Reality Shift, and Grasp of Fate.

I'll start with the questions since that's easier.
1) +x/+0 effects are not necessary. Damage multipliers could be nice since you will be playing a fair-er deck.
2) Dreadnought is worth the money for the right deck. That deck is piloted by Varolz, the Scar-Striped. I wouldn't consider it for Brion.
3) Kiki-jiki is worth it. A wonderful combo piece that can go wild in almost every deck that runs red. In your colours, he could be a secondary win condition with Restoration Angel and Zealous Conscripts (you could add more combo pieces but that would draw the deck away from what you want to do by taking too many slots).
Alright! Now on with suggestions and notable omissions:
Bloodshot Cyclops is a second Brion and I think it's necessary in every Brion deck as a backup.
Might Makes Right is an interesting repeatable threaten effect. The drawback can be negated by most giants since they tend to be larger than average.
Vicious Shadows can be another mighty red enchantment.
As a matter of fact I would include less creatures that die at end of turn. Either that or include more recursion like Karmic Guide and Sun Titan. Try to find space for Kor Cartographer and Knight of the White Orchid as some of the only land-ramp in white.
Another major issue with the deck is your Sunforger. Where are the instants it will tutor for!? You need to improve that package with a lot of other cards. My suggestions for a decent boros package are Into the Core, Boros Charm, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Wild Ricochet and Master Warcraft.
Then card draw... I'd like to see (a lot) more, you will probably like to see more as well. But in boros that may be rough, sadly...
For boardwipes you have the classics (e.g. Day of Judgment) but you may find some interest in cards like False Prophet and Bearer of the Heavens. They can be very political and can prove a very literal threat with your commander. Otherwise opt for cards that offer versatility like Tragic Arrogance and Fell the Mighty.
Lastly, i would recommend taking a look at Brion's page on EDHRec. It's by no means the golden standard to pick cards from there, but it's a decent source of inspiration.
I hope this was at least a little bit insightful for you. It's always nice to see unconventional commanders and I would have loved to see a Brion deck at my table!

Thanks again bushido_man96!
Expedite is only in here for the card draw and I agree it's super weak.
As for Brave the Elements, it's one of those cards I put in almost every white deck. It's saved my @$$ more times than I can count! But I can definitely see it not being as strong as other options, thanks!
I just saw False Prophet the other day. Creature + board wipe! It's awesome!

I think of cards you could cut, I would include Expedite, Crusader of Odric (it doesn't look like you are going to be controlling enough creatures to really make that one matter), Thunder-Thrash Elder (you want to sac creatures to Brion), and Brave the Elements (its ok, but its a once-off that I think you could find better value for that slot). That would give you some room to narrow down your maybeboard.
For an interesting option for boardwipes, you could consider False Prophet.
