Creature — Ogre
Whenever Hoarding Ogre attacks, roll a twenty sided die. (Remember that MTG spindowns are not well weight balanced, so please roll a die that isn't an MTG spindown)
If you roll a 1-9 | Create a Treasure token. (It's an artifact with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Gain one mana of any colour.")
If you roll 10-19 | Create two Treasure tokens.
If you roll a 20 | Create three Treasure tokens.

id probably start with cutting Glorious Anthem, Duelist's Heritage, Strionic Resonator, Sunforger, Navigation Orb, Defiant Strike, Deflecting Palm, Night's Whisper, Rakshasa Debaser, Shakedown Heavy, Hoarding Ogre, Imperial Recruiter, Inferno Titan, Wingmate Roc,
Combat Calligrapher will get you killed ,
Tori D'Avenant, Fury Rider is fair if you go the exalted route, idk about tokens,
Throw in a random Tainted Strike. It probably wont be too hard to kill hit for 9 with a single creature.

For decent salt but fun game I'd focus run some staxy type card.
Archfiend of Depravity weep tokens decks
Sepulchral Primordial steal 3 creature at once
Molten Primordial steal 3 creatures
Tymaret, Chosen from Deathgrave hate that works well with commander to limit the randomness
Altar of Dementia free sac plus many more upsides
Syr Konrad, the Grim with cards entering and leaving graves a decent wincon
Hofri Ghostforge double use etbs with other upside
Sire Of Insanity especially in a low budget slowing down the game works well in your favor. Also a blue players nightmare
Burnished Hart ramp
Tragic Arrogance you choose kinda boardwipe
Command the Dreadhorde Greatness at any cost
Victimize 1 bad guy fir 2 good guys. Seems legit
Painful Truths draw 3
Skullclamp for all the dorks out there. Let's make them useful
Helm of Possession trade your borrowed creature for a newer model
Smothering Tithe do you pay the tax?
Leonin Arbiter did you pay that tax
Wayfarer's Bauble ramp
Ruthless Technomancer ramp reanimation
Hoarding Ogre budget ramp
Fracture flexible removal
Stinging Study good with commander
Archon of Emeria 1 spell per turn
Rule of Law 1 spell per turn
Any of the Fleshbag Marauder effects
Visions of Ruin ramp kinda but mostly removal
Thrilling Discovery card draw
Echo Chamber fun card
Spreading Plague neat includes not great
Grave Betrayal steal creatures
These are just a few ideas. You'll have to mess with it from there.

Red has a lot of treasure generating cards now (Treasure tap and sac for any one colored mana) and some of these cards improve that effect.

I've been finding that with the use of Hoarding Ogre, the goblin created by Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Flip, Sword of the Animist, Aerial Surveyor, and Shiny Impetus (used to buff a creature that I want to continuously attack with anyways in order to fix mana or defensively), along with one of the copy generators such as the Delina, Wild Mage. Flamerush Rider, or Reflection of Kiki-Jiki Flip that I have an embarrassment of treasure tokens by turn 4 or 5. It seems like I can get away with drawing into one or two big guys in order to really solidify a lead. I'm also just into big bombs a not so guilty pleasure!
That being said I forgot to mention Fireflux Squad. As far as I can tell we can actually sac the tokens generated by Captain's Claws, Myriad copies from Warchief Giant (not in your deck last I checked but in your maybeboard) and Herald of the Host, Goblins created by Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin, Flamerush Rider and Delina to dig through our decks to throw out a non-token creature that won't exile or die at the end of combat. I'm going to test this card out. I think it may be something of a sleeper. Unless I completely misunderstand its effects it'll be like a second, less strict Winota, Joiner of Forces cheating out some of those bombs.

Thank you for the suggestions Rolska, these are all pretty solid. Also, thank you for reading through my primer lol.
I should list Eldrazi Conscription in the upgrades section. Definitely very powerful, & Ulamog's Crusher isn't the worst of the bunch. A dude in my playgroup plays a couple of the Titans in his Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy deck, but he can get them out stupidly early.
Hoarding Ogre also seems like it has a lot of potential. Admittedly, I slept on the D20 & Dungeon Venturing mechanics until I started play-testing them with Isshin. I'm very excited for Delina, Wild Mage in particular.
I replaced Audacious Thief with Nadaar, Selfless Paladin earlier today. I like the potential value upside from the Dungeon Venturing, & his Anthem.
I currently run Conspiracy Theorist in my Alesha deck. Some times it feels good, sometimes it feels clunky. I've also considered Cheering Fanatic for some 2cmc "ramp"/value.
You're the second person to recommend the Kiki-Jiki fable to me lol. I need to update the maybe list. I like the Looting upside on it for sure.
As for Keldon Twilight and Total War, I like both suggestions, but have a trickier time play testing those effects in just solo testing. I'll definitely keep them in my back pocket as I start to play some games with this deck in the next month or so. I want to give Thorough Investigation a chance, but am eyeing that as a potential swap-out slot

I know you said that you're not a fan of Eldrazi - which is fair enough. The only one I really like is Ulamog's Crusher because it just seems strong but not ridiculous like most bigger Eldrazi are. That being said, Eldrazi Conscription I think is worth a look at. Having someone like Iroas, God of Victory become a 17/14 with Trample and Annihilator 2 (Annihilator 4 with Isshin, Two Heavens as One ) is pretty fun.
Still basically an Eldrazi though. So that aside, below are a few cards I'm interested in that you've not mentioned yet, though you've mentioned most of what I found as well.
Hoarding Ogre - 2x Treasure is great for early pressure and mana fixing in a three color deck. With Isshin, Two Triggers as One you'll be getting 2x-6x Treasure per attack (averaging about 4). Absolutely fantastic with Isshin, alright on its own. Monetarily cheap as well.
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Flip // Reflection of Kiki-Jiki Flip works much the same as Hoarding Ogre, almost a free Thrill of Possibility, and create a token before the Combat Phase even begins allowing for additional "When Attacking" triggers.

Thanks so much for the kind words, Sentri! I'm glad you enjoy the deck! Hoarding Ogre Is definitely a good card to replace, as it's pretty inconsequential more often than not. As for what other cards to replace it depends on how you prefer to win. If you find yourself going infinite relatively often, the anthem effects that don't give trample like Crucible of Fire, Gratuitous Violence, or Atarka, World Render wind up being irrelevant, and could definitely be replaced. In general though, I would say that the relatively slow ramp of Wood Elves and the fairly situational Sarkhan the Masterless are among the weaker cards and would probably be the best to replace.
P.S. Yeah my Grist deck is definitely a bit lower power level than this one, but one of my favorites to pilot, very fun.
