OK this deck needs a lot of tweaks to get it to work.
These are some of the issues:
It's difficult to play Gideon of the Trials because, unlike Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, he doesn't bring any Creature in to play to protect himself. You only have one Creature that can protect him (Channeler Initiate), unless you can get some 8/8 Octopus action happening.
It's REALLY tricky to cast Crush of Tentacles for its surge cost. There were that many times I was sitting on six mana, but all the other spells in my hand cost 2CMC or more. If you want to make this deck work then I think you need a lot of little 1CMC spells that you will be almost guaranteed to cast.
Confront the Unknown
Gift of Tusks
Heaven / Earth - you can pay 0 for X, just to trigger Surge
Select for Inspection
Natural State - probably best in the Sideboard
Stinging Shot - Sideboard
I could go on, but I think you get the gist.
A lot of this stuff is a throw back to decks that are trying to get a lot of to spin Aetherworks Marvel. You might be able to kill two birds with one stone if you try taking out Glimmer of Genius for Creatures that should give you draw.

This deck has possibilities, that's for sure. It just needs to be more consistent.

Watchful Naga for card draw
Silkweaver Elite has draw on a revolt condition
Armorcraft Judge has draw on entry but it's only for +1/+1s
Byway Courier has investigate on death (something with revolt conditions?)
Wild Wanderer fetches lands on entry
Vizier of the Menagerie can cast from your topdeck

Glorybringer is just way too good to not run. Especially when you're already running 2x Arlinn Kord Flip and 4x Always Watching . The Nissa and Gideons are too cute and don't really have a lot of synergy with the rest of the exert deck. Also, I'm not sure what the 4x Thraben Inspector are doing. 4x Watchful Naga is plenty. If you still want more card draw, using Blossoming Defense to protect the nagas, initiates, and champions would make this deck more consistent.

Of all lists Ive seen for Exert, this one looks like one of the most consequently designed, great job!
Honestly i don't get it why everyone is picking Djeru's Resolve, that card just seems like a really bad card to me that just got slightly better cause of cycling. I would always pick Blessed Alliance over it.
And i would consider Arlinn Kord Flip and Samut, Voice of Dissent in the main if you really want to play the Combat Celebrant cause cards like him really need haste to shine, otherwise he will always die before he commits anything to the board.Haste is also critical for later Glory-Bound Initiates and the suggested Watchful Naga even though i would prefer to play Mouth / Feed as that card can provide a lot more card adventage and is never dead in your hand, as it won't hurt to lose or trade the token when you still have the opportunity to play the Feed-halve later on.

I have a list like this, and it runs Watchful Naga, which I absolutely love. If you do end up running Champion of Rhonas, then you can stack the triggers so that you can draw into a creature that you then place with Champion, and of course if you have Always Watching out, you're drawing cards every turn.
