Creature — Eldrazi Drone
Whenever Rapacious One deals combat damage to a player, put that many 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add 1 to your mana pool."

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.
I think that you should in particular look into
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
Malignus makes for a very nice early game threat and beater as well.
You can find my Xenagos deck here. Who knows, you may find some cards you like!

You're joking right?
Emrakul's Hatcher is basically 8 damage for 1 and a red.
Rapacious One is free damage and mana on contact.
Spawnsire of Ulamog is a reusable spawn engine that goes infinite with Mana Echoes
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is mill protection and removal as well as a potential way to win.
Skittering Invasion is 10 damage for 2.
Chandras parents is 6 damage for 2 and 2 red that has anti-synergy with Thopter Assembly. Elemental Mastery is a potential maybe however with it being an aura enchantment it's iffy as I can deal with lost creatures with Feldon and to a lesser extent trading post however enchantments are a different story and auras are so easy to deal with. Solemn is a maybe as I have enough sac effects to abuse both triggers and I can abuse it with Trading Post and Feldon. I like Warstorm Surge except that I have to target, I would rather use Impact Tremors as it's quicker, deals it to everyone, and 9 times out or 10 will be doing the same damage as the Surge.
