Serra Avatar's power and toughness are each equal to your life total.
When Serra Avatar is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Seems like you don't really have a win-con other than creature damage, which sometimes wont work if you're playing a token deck or something of that sort. you're gaining a ton of life, so I've got a couple suggestions. Aetherflux Reservoir is a great card for life gain decks and lets you shut down your opponents immediately, and it's especially easy in commander. One of my playgroups favorite combos is Wall of Reverence+Serra Avatar, lets you double your life total every turn. I's also recommend Detention Sphere, good to take care of commanders. some other cards are Venser's Journal and Well of Lost Dreams, as well as Alhammarret's Archive and Maze of Ith. I'll probably think of more suggestions in a sec. Great deck tho!

Serra Avatar seems like a fun addition! She is an inexpensive card as well.

General recommendations: Cradle of Vitality, Serra Avatar, Sunscorch Regent, Archangel of Thune, Austere Command, Ranger of Eos, Gift of Estates, Miren, the Moaning Well, Return to Dust, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Sunbond, Resplendent Mentor, Comeuppance, Gilded Lotus, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Phyrexian Processor
Maybe Atalya, Samite Master as the commander if yours doesn't feel good.
Graveyard control Rest in Peace, Ashes of the Abhorrent
Azor's Gateway for the infinite mana you don't need lol

Cerodon Yearling and Sky Terror are both somewhat low value cards, basically just cheap attackers. Also, Sundering Titan is unfortunately banned in edh (and by unfortunately I mean fortunately, because it would be a huge pain to deal with).
Cataclysmic Gearhulk could be a pretty decent board wipe, though it does kind of clash with how many artifacts you run. Conquering Manticore is another creature-based Threaten effect, letting you more easily repeatably steal opposing creatures. I also think that more tutors to help you find Skullclamp for draw or Thornbite Staff for repeated sacrifice is pretty important. Hoarding Dragon is a great way to do so, since not only can it get equipments, it can also fetch some of your other powerful artifacts. Godo, Bandit Warlord is another great way to do so, and can beat down geared up with a bunch of equipments if need be.
Next, some more synergy pieces. Mistveil Plains lets you reuse Sunforger targets, and can even be found by Tithe, which can be found by the Sunforger, meaning that you only need to draw Sunforger to have access to any of its spells once per turn. It can also be found by Knight of the White Orchid. Next, I really like Heirloom Blade as a kind of backup Skullclamp. It works really well alongside Taurean Mauler, always giving you at least 2 draws, and they're specifically creatures, meaning you always get another creature to sacrifice. In addition, it combos with Serra Avatar when you've already drawn the rest of your avatars, meaning that you just redraw the avatar after sacrificing it.
Check out my Brion deck for more inspiration. It's a bit more focused on one big explosive turn, but has a lot of powerful synergy pieces that could work in any Brion list.

Yeah, I just like my creatures to be more than just huge bodies, unless they're just ridiculously big. Like, the only fatties I run are Serra Avatar, Phyrexian Processor, and Taurean Mauler. Flinging a Serra Avatar should remove a player from the game almost every time, and it shuffles itself into the deck for Heirloom Blade synergy. Phyrexian Processor just can make ridiculously large creatures every turn, and Taurean Mauler just makes the whole Heirloom Blade package come together.
I actually did add Deathrender after some consideration. A lot of the cool combos the deck can accomplish require huge amounts of mana, and Deathrender lets it go off much more easily. In addition, we can generate lots of red mana pretty easily, but getting out white creatures can be a challenge at times.
I'm not sure about adding another fling effect. Slots are pretty tight at the moment, and a one-off fling effect would probably come at the price of a creature slot, which isn't something I really want to happen. If I were to add some redundancy for Brion, I'd probably bring Bloodshot Cyclops back in.
Thanks for all the suggestions and explanations!

The more I think about it, I'm convinced that Deathrender would actually be a good inclusion. The only problem is that it really needs a draw engine to support it. Still, if I add more equipment tutors to the list I think it would be really good. I'm picturing something like Brion Stoutarm + Deathrender + Heirloom Blade + Thornbite Staff + Serra Avatar, where you pay to deal your life total in damage to an opponent and gain that much life. However, it requires a lot of pieces to work well, so I'm not sure about it.

I like the deck.I'm just wondering why you didn't include an Enlightened Tutor, an Academy Rector and a Sneak Attack to be searched with those two.And with those three cards, a Serra Avatar to oneshot any opponent (maybe two if one has no blockers).
