Rite of the Raging Storm
Creatures named Lightning Rager can't attack you or planeswalkers you control.
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player puts a 5/1 red Elemental creature token named Lighnting Rager onto the battlefield. It has trample, haste, and "At the beginning of the end step, sacrifice this creature."

Rite of the Raging Storm Discussion

First things first...Sakura-Tribe Elder and Sol Ring. By using Omnath, Locus of Rage with expensive dragons you want early and inexpensive ramp. Shaman of Forgotten Ways is also a great ramp for creature-heavy decks. I understand this aspires to be a budget deck so Burgeoning finds home here and not Exploration too. Take out Relentless Hunter for Rubblehulk. Take out Harbinger of the Hunt for Savage Ventmaw.
Zendikar's Roil is a bit slow and ineffective here as you don't focus on small tokens rather than big fat tokens from Omnath and creatures. Where Ancients Tread also finds home here it has won me lots of games (I also play EDH with this Omnath). Take out Peregrination for Cultivate it's essential to have cheap ramp spells. You can scry a lot more with Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
Wild Slash and Draconic Roar are awful in EDH. Instead have Comet Storm and perhaps Starstorm or Mizzium Mortars...Ground Assault, Hull Breach, Decimate and Vandalblast are all excellent removals for Gruul EDH.
In the end some good cards are: Elemental Bond for card draw. Rite of the Raging Storm which triggers both Elemental Bond,Omnath, Locus of Rage AND Where Ancients Tread. You can take out Revel of the Fallen God for it...it's not such a good card. Spellbreaker Behemoth to mess with those blue players out there. Gruul Turf, Naya Panorama, Terramorphic Expanse as for lands. Grave Sifter or Creeping Renaissance for turning the game to your advantage. And perhaps Mistcutter Hydra for a kill out of nowhere.

What do you think of Serene Master (the definition of aikido), Crown of Doom, Skullclamp (if someone has the monarch, you can opt for drawing with the tokens), Mother of Runes (negates any sort of spot removal, providing evasion and easy defence as well)?
I was also thinking about Rite of the Raging Storm, as it doesn't prevent the opponents from doing anything (no feeling of stax) and gives them free stuff to play with (similar to hug). Have you ever considered it?

I have been slowing building a Kresh Deck myself and have a few suggestions for you to consider.
Rite of the Raging Storm - High mana cost, but a potentially 5 counters every end step.
Ulvenwald Tracker - Single target removal / Kresh wins fights...
Flowstone Slide - Spicy / underrated / lesser known card. How many extra counters would you like? Also consider Flowstone Surge against/with token strategies
Reyhan, Last of the Abzan - Because your creatures will die or put into the command zone ...
Traverse the Outlands - Ramp based on creature's power ...
Rishkar's Expertise - Draw based on creature's power ...

Hi! Saw your post on the forums, glad to see more Brion players out there.
In response to the forum post: in my personal experience Stalking Vengeance never did much for me. but with the choice between Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader, I'd cut the Warleader.
Now after having a look at your deck, I've got a few suggestions!
First off, you have a lot of high costed(6-8 mana) spells, but almost no ramp to speak of.
Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Hedron Archive, Marble Diamond, and Mind Stone are all good options. Focus on the 2 mana ramps because that a) allows for a turn 3 Brion and b) doesn't slow you down as much in the late game.
Ramp is important, and so is card draw. Unfortunately, Boros sucks at both. Still, artifacts like Well of Lost Dreams and Skullclamp are great, so through in some more like Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory. Solemn Simulacrum is great too, though price is an issue(Kor Cartographer is the budget version). The color red also provides you with wheel effects, you have a couple but Reforge the Soul would help you I think.
Now the boring stuff is out of the way. How about some big creatures?! Hamletback Goliath, Thunderblust, and Serra Avatar are some good sackable fatties, and give great value for your dollar! Sun Titan is some good recursion.
Now for some win conditions to bounce off ya: Phyrexian Processor! Here's what you need: 9 mana, at least 1 more life than your opponent, and Brion on the field. Play the processor, pay most of your life, make a X/X creature, sack it to Brion, kill your opponent and gain all the life back! Works great with damage/lifegain doublers.
Phyrexian Devourer! Here's how he works. Exile cards off your library until he hits seven and his ability triggers, then sack him with Brion in response to the trigger, then keep exileing cards in respone to that to get it's power up to more than your opponents, then all that resolves and kills someone. This can all happen turn 7 which is nice.
Cut suggestions. Whenever I'm cutting stuff I look at the top of my curve first and move down. How much are these 6, 7, 8 mana spells doing for you? I'd take a long look at the two Akromas and some of the other angels, Stalking Vengeance, and Ryusei, the Falling Star. Further down the curve I see Taj-Nar Swordsmith(not using him to full potential), Magus of the Disk(just use the disk) and Vesuva(replace with Clifftop Retreat).
Hopefully some of this helps! Check out my Brion deck for a reference!

Cards to take out: Lightning Bolt is pretty weak in Commander; Magma Spray same; Tribute to the Wild should be Krosan Grip in my opinion but making each opponent sac isn't bad either; Hostile Desert you want lands to come back and they don't do that from exile; Dictate of the Twin Gods is iffy it can bite you in the butt; Amulet of Vigor not seeing enough tapped cards to make this worth it; Titania's Chosen; Naga Vitalist should be Arbor Elf or Llanowar Elves or Birds of Paradise; Mycoloth and Inferno Titan don't really fit the theme
Cards to add: Gruul Signet, Solemn Simulacrum, Talisman of Impulse, Rite of the Raging Storm, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Ramunap Excavator, Burgeoning, Reforge the Soul, Explore, Thran Dynamo, Mind Stone, Rishkar's Expertise
All suggestions of course

Teysa, Orzhov Scion (though she does require some commitment to a wider/token strategy) seems like a profitable edition for synergies with Dictate of Erebos plus she is the best at keeping scary stuff off the board, or even threatening to. Rite of the Raging Storm could be fun for politics and fort of a more persuasive nature.
I also can't stress the need for dual lands enough in a three color deck. They can be pricey (Especially the actual dual lands and so forth) but some of them have seen quite a few reprints and can be picked up for between 2-6 dollars. These colors are also on the cheaper sideShambling Vent at 2.50Temple of Triumph at 1.00Dragonskull Summit at 3.00All the Best!

I have also been recently messing around with Kresh mainly for the colours though, but I like her flavour. I'd like to suggest 2 cards for you.
- Rogue's Passage - because Unblockable hurts.
- Rite of the Raging Storm - That's five potential Kresh counters on every endstep
