I love making decks with a limited pool of cards, challenge accepted! Here's what I came up with:
2x Shock 1x Giant Growth 1x Pit Fight 1x Coordinated Assault 1x Annihilating Fire 1x Flames of the Firebrand 1x Mugging 1x Hunt the Weak 1x Chandra's Outrage 1x Madcap Skills 1x Gruul War Chant 1x Trollhide
1x Aerial Predation 1x Druid's Deliverance 1x Fade into Antiquity 1x Towering Thunderfist 1x Viashino Racketeer 1x Brindle Boar 1x Traveler's Amulet 1x Sliver Construct 1x Dimir Keyrune 1x Howl of the Night Pack 1x Act of Treason 1x Axebane Stag 1x Slime Molding 2x Scab-Clan Charger
I split the creatures into three strategic groups, the first is beast and advocate of the beast to pump them up, the second is cheap creatures and rubblebelt raider to get a boost off of them, the last is just your mana ramp creatures and big creatures. I built a sideboard too, but not everything in there is useful, its some utility, some pumps, more creatures and more ramp. Anyway have fun playing magic and hope this helps.

Chronic Flooding is not good for this deck unless you put in appropriate graveyard interactions
I would suggest Champion of the Parish but he's pretty much just burn-spell fodder. He'll get maybe one or two triggers before someone bounces him.
For a finisher, I'd put in Tajic, Blade of the Legion . When he gets battalion off, he's a beater,
Also, Lyev Decree is perfect for a battalion setup. Cheap, and locks out two of their blockers. If you were to put in Firefist Striker you could lock out 3 attackers with that card and battalion triggers.
From the looks of all the nice one-of rares, this is everything you pulled? Congrats on all of those So here are just some suggestions... All fairly cheap commons and what notTake out Gore-House Chainwalker , put in Firefist Striker or Bomber Corps Fiend Hunter for Wojek Halberdiers Splatter Thug for Skyknight Legionnaire or maybe a Towering Thunderfist for a larger creature.
I'd probably try to run just a little less creatures (I would take out Geist-Honored Monk and Azorius Arrester ) and a couple more instants like Martial Glory or Banners Raised . The 4 Boros Charms are great, and Warleader's Helix is nice (consider switching to Lightning Helix if you can though. 1 less damage and life for half the mana is very nice.)
Then there are just the couple cards that seem out of, place but might work out anyway, like Mikaeus, the Lunarch and Stromkirk Noble . Im not quite sure what to do with those, but I guess keep them in there until you get others that fit better, like Legion Loyalist or the now-less-expensive Aurelia, the Warleader
