So i built my own!
Not an exact replica as that's not my style.
As I was combing through my collection to build my deck I noticed there was a good bit of red cards that supported energy: Voltaic Brawler and Lightning Runner for example. Did you give red any thought when building yours?

Yeah, there's not nearly enough lands. Think of it this way: Lands are 21% of your deck, as it is now. That's the equivalent of running 13 lands in a 60-card deck or 9 lands in a 40-card deck. You're built around an 8-mana commander, so 39 is the minimum you should be running, along with, at the very least, 8 sources of ramp.
I think these 3 videos will be very helpful for you. The first two are videos by The Professor, one on Commander deck construction, and the other on building a 3-color manabase for the format. The last one is SaffronOlive on common pitfalls in deck construction.
Next off, what you'll want to do is look at the EDHREC page for Gishath to see what other people are putting in their decks. If you're on a budget, you can also click at the top right to go to what people are playing in decks labeled as budget. Remember to include card advantage, ramp, removal that is either flexible or hits the whole table, and haymakers that will close out the game.
As for cuts, I would start with 4 to 7-mana non-dinos, since that spot on the curve will get clogged up pretty quickly, and you want to be putting expensive dinos out for free with Gishath. I would also cut Atzocan Archer , Emperor's Vanguard , Frenzied Raptor , Looming Altisaur , Nest Robber , Pterodon Knight , Raptor Companion , Raptor Hatchling , Ravenous Daggertooth , Sky Terror , Steadfast Armasaur , Voltaic Brawler , Cobbled Wings , Primal Amulet Flip, Abrade , Blossoming Defense , Demystify , Lightning Helix , Righteousness , Shock , and Slash of Talons . They're all either too narrow, too weak, don't scale up well with the creature size or life totals of Commander, or don't make sense in your deck.

The Giant Fan wouldn't move an energy counter from a player onto the Voltaic Brawler, it would move any counter from any other permanent onto that creature, which would then turn into an energy counter, as that's what the printed text on the card refers to.

I would argue that you couldn't use Giant Fan to put an energy counter on Voltaic Brawler, simply because its oracle text says to move the counter "from one permanent to another." Energy counters are on players, and players aren't permanents.

I'm pretty sure this is only relevant to silver-bordered games ATM, and I'm also pretty sure the answer is no. But anyway.
If I control a Voltaic Brawler and move a charge counter onto it with a Giant Fan, would I be able to pay for its triggered ability if the only charge counter in play at that time is sitting on that creature?

kingquark No problem!
Krosan Grip is great due to the split second clause as it's pretty relevant. Beast Within is generally an amazing card, but because you have access to other colors their are other cards that do it so much better such as Assassin's Trophy, Abrupt Decay, Maelstrom Pulse, and Vindicate.
Another card you can maybe run is Orim's Thunder.
Cards I would consider cutting would be: Shamanic Revelation (Too slow), Woolly Thoctar, Voltaic Brawler, Moltensteel Dragon, Herald of Torment, Bloodbraid Elf, and Accorder Paladin (All of them are a bit underwhleming in terms of value and a bit vanilla).
Some adjustment for budget I would consider are: Iroas, God of Victory, Gisela, Blade of Goldknight , Dauntless Escort, Forgotten Ancient, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Mirror Entity, Taurean Mauler, Hydra Omnivore (Hidden tech, it also does additional damage to the player you chosen!), Tana, the Bloodsower (Also makes additional tokens due to hitting two players!), Urabrask the Hidden, Gahiji, The Honored One, Hero of Bladehold, and Hanweir Garrison.
Hope that gives an idea that could help!

Here are some other options you could consider Bloodsoaked Champion, Goblin Bushwhacker, Pelt Collector, Rhys the Redeemed, Chief of the Edge, Chief of the Scale, Decorated Champion, Den Protector, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Hidden Dragonslayer, Rushblade Commander, Thorn Lieutenant, Voltaic Brawler, and Blood-Chin Fanatic.
Also a quick note about the mana base. Having so few basics in the deck could be quite dangerous. Certainly there is always the possibility of not hitting the correct colors, but having more basics lets you use more flexible ramp and as is, a Blood Moon or Ruination would be crushing.

Hey all! I've heard recently that Cascading Bloodbraid Elf into Grafted Wargear is kinda cool. So I thought Ponza might be a fun place to try it. I present to you all Grafted Ponza, oddly aggressive Ponza with even more awkward creature choices! But hey, its actually kind of fun to play test. I'd love feedback, mainly on a Voltaic Brawler replacement and sideboard tech. Thanks all!
