Even though you are primarily Giant-Tribal, you may still want to have a small suite of "Brion" cards.
Gift of Immortality is extremely good with Brion. I don't have one though.
Sigil of the New Dawn isn't the most efficient, but can be good.
I have a Serra Avatar too, which is the best Fling-able creature around. Evra, Halcyon Witness is great too, but I don't have one. It's cheap though. A Stalking Vengeance would double up Brion's damage, but I don't think I have one either. Reya Dawnbringer is way mana-expensive but can be useful with such pricey giants dying left and right.
Flameshadow Conjuring can be good with Brion too. I don't think I have one though.
Phyrexian Processor is one of the craziest pieces of Brion tech around. It's not too expensive--I would totally slide this card in, even if I was doing Giant Tribal. You can get blown out, but the payoff is enormous.
Another piece of Brion tech is Grafted Exoskeleton, if you wanna be dirty.
Since Brion isn't the center of the strategy, protecting him isn't at such a premium. Cards like Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are still good for protecting your big giants though. It may be worth sliding some cards like that in, but since it's a casual deck you may get away with none.
I have a Cradle of Vitality on-hand. Might be really good!
If you have any more Threaten-effects, those are functionally creature removal with your commander out. Perhaps a couple of cards like that deserve a slot. Captivating Crew is fun because it's repeatable. Song-Mad Treachery Flip is cool because it's a land too!
There are many more.
Illusionist's Bracers is very good with Brion, even with less of a focus on him. Probably worth keeping in.

My almost next to last favorite white card at 6 cmc is Adarkar Valkyrie.

These might interest you: Magewright's Stone (you can untap Mangara and use his ability again while the first activiation is still on the stack, exiling 2 things), Thousand-Year Elixir, Puppet Strings, To Arms!, Erratic Portal (return Mangara to hand before the ability resolves. it will exile the target without exiling Mangara), Acrobatic Maneuver (works like Erratic portal. when Mangara returns he will not be exiled by the old Mangara's ability, since the new one is a new object), Angel of Condemnation, Eldrazi Displacer, Sanctum of Eternity, Flickerform, Illusionist's Bracers, Rings of Brighthearth, Witch Hunter, Adarkar Valkyrie, Mimic Vat, Palace Jailer

Looks good so far! You might like these: Cloudshift (works like conjurer's closet), Kaya's Ghostform, Ghostly Flicker, Deadeye Navigator, Nephalia Smuggler, Bastion Protector (protects merieke and allows you to steal legendary creatures indefinitely), Darksteel Plate (equip to a stolen creature to keep it even after merieke untaps), Chakram Retriever, Magewright's Stone, Thousand-Year Elixir, Aphetto Alchemist, Vizier of Tumbling Sands, Adarkar Valkyrie (target a stolen creature, then untap merieke to regain the stolen creature for good), Opalescence (lets you take enchantments), March of the Machines (take artifacts), Sydri, Galvanic Genius

The first combo you mention doesn't really synergize with the rest of the deck. Thornbite Staff is pretty bad outside the combo, Adarkar Valkyrie is slow and clunky for what it does, and the deck doesn't really do enough aristocrat-style things for Phyrexian Altar to be good. Honestly, seeing how all the cards are rather bad individually, I recommend taking them out. Way too much mana to assemble, can't assemble it consistently, and each of the cards in it are bad.
If you really want an infinite mana combo, play Zirda, the Dawnwaker + Basalt Monolith. I understand this doesn't give you infinite colored mana, but your deck can do plenty with colorless mana. Additionally, each of these cards is solid on their own- Zirda makes equip costs cheaper (an effect your deck wants) and the monolith is a decent mana rock.
If you're worried about having enough mana, just play mana rocks. You already have artifact synergies in the deck, mana rocks will get you the mana you want and synergize with the deck. There are also amazing options like Smothering Tithe and Dockside Extortionist.

Correcting some changes:
I replaced Martyr's Bond with Adarkar Valkyrie. Although the aforementioned spell is very strong, it is more reactive, and I need a more proactive deck, the valkyrie is a very strong recursion piece and can combo with Thornbite Staff and Death Cultist. In turn, I removed Priest of Forgotten Gods to add Death Cultist.
There was the addition of the Chromatic Lantern for mana correction
