It might help to know a bit more about your playgroup.

Offhand, I'd say that Skittering Invasion and Rapacious One are too expensive to represent useful sources of ramp. Running a full set of Awakening Zone and From Beyond instead might be more useful (with the latter helping you fetch your Eldrazi). Eyeless Watcher might be a good option for bodies that come with Eldrazi Spawn tokens.

I think Soulsurge Elemental is an easy cut. You may also want something a bit more impactful than Fireball (possibly Comet Storm or Bonfire of the Damned could be good if you're looking for a mana sink).

Do you need to worry about boardwipes from your opponents? If you absolutely need to have some of your eldrazi spawn live for a few turns, something like Rootborn Defenses might come in handy.

I'd be curious to see how Doubling Cube performs for you. It seems like it's probably too expensive relative to how much mana it's likely to give you. But it's absolutely worth testing to see how it goes.

Whatever you end up with here is likely to have some real weaknesses, but seems like it could be pretty fun in the right playgroup. Keep us posted :)

Here is the guy I keep talking about I am going to post him on Daretti because it would be the most interest to that deck: Rapacious One

The Sac option probably doesn't mean much to Daretti but the beater with high colorless mana production could be neat

Great deck! Love to see some Gruul

I've been playing Xenagos as my commander a long time and while my build is not a budget one, it has some nice cheap gems you should consider.

Xenagod, Wrecker of Face

I think that you should in particular look into

Rapacious One

Crazy ramp dude, if this guy connects you get so much mana (and tokens for various Diabolic Edict-effects and such). It also has a decent power and trample and will cost you less than a dollar to acquire.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed

You like playing creatures (Gruul yeah!) why not punishing everybody else? This guy is awesome since he has reach and vigilance he can block flyers all day. The "downside" of attacking each turn is already a part of the strategy here so that is hardly a problem.

Malignus

Or 1-hit-KO-elemental as I like to call him. Do you ever play against pesky blue mages? Those "control players" that never play creatures? BOOM drop this guy and give him Xena-power and you will take out a player per turn if they don't get blockers out.

Grafted Exoskeleton

This card goes with basically any creature in your deck and just makes every creature into 1-hit-KO-dude. This card is especially fun with Ruric Thar, the Unbowed since it basically reads everybody gets to play ONE non-creature spell then its over for that player.

Chandra's Ignition

Goes very well with Grafted Exoskeleton since you usually just win by targeting a pumped creature with the exoskeleton. Also inst-win with a pumped Malignus. This card is great even without instant wins though, its a boardwipe where you get to keep your big creature and also deal A LOT of damage to everybody.

Budget for this upgrade is less than 5 USD

Hope they continue to enjoy Magic!

EDH can be a little intense at first, because so many different cards come at you all at once.

Hunter's Prowess, Garruk's Packleader, Soul of the Harvest and Elemental Bond are all good sources of drawing cards.

Flameblast Dragon, Ulvenwald Tracker can be useful for turning creatures into removal.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Stalking Vengeance, Savage Ventmaw, Archetype of Endurance, and Rapacious One, all have either fun or useful abilities for the deck.

Overwhelming Stampede can be used as a nice finisher. Potentially Titanic Ultimatum too, if the deck can consistently cast it.

Happy gaming!

In that case it looks like you've got basically everything else covered. Maaaybe Rapacious One for a creature that people won't block if you promise to give them tokens... maaaybe. That's kind of stretching it though.

Oh, for sure! It's an old favourite of mine.You know who really like bloodrush? Rapacious One :D

MRDOOM3 on xenagos, god of revels

First of all, I would either cut Ruric Thar or cut a few noncreature spells, since his ability applies to everyone, and all it takes to bring someone down from 40 to 0 is 7 noncreatures.

I would cut Vexing Shusher and replace it with Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Alongside mana dorks, you probably should use extra lands per turn cards such as Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Azusa, Lost but Seeking.

Siege Behemoth and Arlinn Kord  Flip are nice for getting past pesky chump blockers, should your creatures not have trample handy.

Pathbreaker Ibex, Rapacious One, Balefire Dragon, and technically Deus of Calamity are all cards that benefit from Xenago's pump ability.

To protect your fatties during attacking, Stonehoof Chieftain can help with those with deathtouch or protection from red/green and Breaker of Armies helps by being the "attention stealer".

Malignus makes for a very nice early game threat and beater as well.

One lovely synergy I like to run is Dragon Throne of Tarkir+Heroes' Bane. Sure, my 256/256 gets reduced to a mere doorstop, but much worse things happen afterwards.

You can find my Xenagos deck here. Who knows, you may find some cards you like!
