Alright! Brion is one of my favorites!
Here's mine for reference.

Not sure about your strategy. Seems inconsistent and hard to get going. You'll need a way to get the creatures and then the equipment and then a strong recursion package. Balan seems viable. Kemba not so much.
That said, here are some ideas.
Equipment: Sunforger(possible recursion enabler too), Assault Suit, Illusionist's Bracers(equip to brion), Masterwork of Ingenuity, Skullclamp(very important), Grafted Exoskeleton(will get hate). In my Brion deck I only run equipment for utility so I'm not as much help there.
Recursion: Mimic Vat and Feldon of the Third Path my be good for you. Putting Balan under the Vat seems especially good. Then you only need 6 mana per turn to do his thing. That seems alright to me. Gift of Immortality will be good for you. There are lots of other white recursion too. Karmic Guide, Resurrection etc.
For mana base I'd just look at mine and get what you can afford. As long as you aren't doing anything to color intensive early on you should be good.
I will say that Threaten effects are a great way to go with brion. I don't have many personally but the one-two punch then life gain with their own creature is great. Very Aikido which I like.
Other Brion goodstuff: Well of Lost Dreams. If you want to play Brion you need this card. Boros doesn't get much help with card draw but for Brion the Well is an all star. Serra Avatar and Phyrexian Processor are good finishers. Rite of the Raging Storm is really fun too. You get a flingable every turn and all your opponents have to attack each other. Good times. Chandra's Ignition is good for all the lifegain.
That's all I got for now. Check out my list for other ideas. And as others have said, get a full-ish list together to we can better see what you're trying to do. Four cards isn't a lot to go on. Help us help you haha!

Boundless Realms could be used as a final land ramp card so you can dump out all the dinos in your grip the following turn. Polyraptor + Forerunner of the Empire + Rite of Passage is pretty sweet tech. Maybe more white cards to help with color balancing with your lands could be Breath of Life, and Resurrection. Angry Omnath to synergize with the land ramping? +1'ed

Hi, first off I'd like to say that I love the concept of this deck and many of the choices in it. I do have a few suggestions that I feel would make this list a bit stronger.
Firstly, I have a few suggestions for your reanimation package. While Debtors' Knell, Reya Dawnbringer, and Sheoldred, Whispering One are objectively strong cards, in my experience I've found them lacking. Your mileage may vary but for me they often eat removal before they can really get to work, thus not making them worth the mana investment in my eyes. I'm also not entirely sure if Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker works with Elenda or not. I think her power needs to be 1 or less as she's leaving and if she's buffed with a bunch of counters I don't think she'll get the reanimation trigger.
All of those previous cards I mentioned I would suggest cutting. Luckily this color pairing offers a myriad of quality replacements that are efficient and affordable. Animate Dead is a classic choice for graveyard recursion and is quite versatile as it hits every graveyard. Victimize might be up your alley as it can double as a sacrifice outlet, only not for Elenda. Unburial Rites is another quality recursion spell since it has flashback, so you can get Elenda back twice with the same card, or hold it up in your graveyard for another creature. There are also a few good single-use spells in both colors, namely Zombify, Resurrection, Breath of Life, False Defeat and Miraculous Recovery (this last one might be of particular interest due to its instant speed and +1/+1 counter synergy). Depending on your budget I would also suggest Necromancy.
May I also recommend Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter over Curse of the Cabal? Both seem to serve a similar purpose, but I think Vish Kal fits your strategy better. He gets +1/+1 counters from being a sacrifice outlet, and can use those counters as removal.
I hope this was of some help. I really like this deck's concept and these are just my suggestions for it. Happy brewing!

Man I must be real old and stuck in the past lol. When you ask what colors pulled things from the grave my immediate thought is black/white, green as tertiary. I guess a lot of that stems from my thought process assuming you meant pulling things from the graveyard onto the battlefield, where most green stuff seems to put it back in your hand. Maybe my playgroup is just old too, I see Resurrection on an almost daily basis still. And Miraculous Recovery, printed in a duel deck, still feels... recent to me. Even though that was like 4 years ago.
I honestly can't even think of any green cards that bring things from the grave to the field. Regrowth is the only thing that even comes to mind where green reanimation is concerned. Yeah, there's a fair bit of Black/Green reanimation, such as Vigor Mortis or Dredge cards, but I'm not sure I've ever perceived Green as being heavy on the reanimation.

Heya, this deck looks quite budget, so i won't give expensive suggestions.
Firstly I just wanted to say that Eldrazi Displacer needs colourless mana, which you currently have not a single source of. You need cards like Sol Ring or cards like Karoo that can make the colourless mana.
Other than that, here's some general advice. Things I'm missing here is ramp and more value creatures/spells. This deck has too many spot removal that shouldnt do much, as you don't seem aggresive enough to burst your way through. Cards like Divine Verdict, Enduring Victory or Expose Evil dont do that much in a 4 player free for all. Look at cards such as Luminate Primordial or Selfless Squire instead. These cards give a lot more value for you.
As far as ramp goes in monowhite, Kor Cartographer is a great inclusion, and so is colourless ramp such as Everflowing Chalice, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Thought Vessel, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Pearl Medallion. And even cards like Gift of Estates can be very helpfull to ensure you play a land every turn. You should go down to 37 lands or so and add at least a bit more ramp.
Good luck and I hope I helped you somewhat ;)

eyessky: I considered Resurrection, but with stuff like Emeria Shepherd, Defy Death and Bishop of Rebirth being printed relatively recently I didn't think it was extreme enough to warrant inclusion. Mark Rosewater has said that white can occasionally get reanimation. The others work though!

Gattison and I talk about this all the time! Here's are few that you might want to add: Dawn Charm, Resurrection, It That Rides as One Flip and I believe there are a few other white creatures with trample. Im sure Ill think of some others. Thanks for putting this together!
