That is a problem for such a large creature, but the number of times we can use him on an empty board (especially if you regard my theory about Sorcerous Spyglass and Dream Trawler) or use him for the ability is still staggering!

That's hard to bear, for most. The thing I do to keep my decks cheap is avoid Shock Lands( Steam Vents and the like) and cards like Fabled Passage . I'm not denying their value, but are they really 10-20 times more valuable (in the game) than a card like Temple of Epiphany ? They both tap, and both give an add on.
Also, Sleeves exist, to protect cards. Cards can be bought cheaper when they are in a less-than-new condition. And foils are also a bit unnecessary, if your goal is to stay cheap.
Now for an actual idea. I was looking at the cards you liked at the top of this post. Pteramander and Crackling Drake are both big on instants, and getting Humongous as a result of them. Enigma Drake has already rotated, it is no longer standard legal. Two other red and blue cards that get Gargantuan as a result of instants/sorceries are Erratic Cyclops and Wee Dragonauts . Cards that help you cast such spells are Goblin Electromancer , and (sorta) Spellkeeper Weird . The instants/sorceries you want to cast with this can be damaging type, card advantage type, orcreature buff/debuff, or even the first two of these combined. (Counterspells are essential, too)
For Damage, Shock , Lava Coil and Electrodominance are good. Card-Drawing, Opt , Winged Words , and Chemister's Insight all draw and give card advantage. Infuriate , Sure Strike , and Sonic Assault both buff/debuff. Ral's Outburst both damages and gives card advantage. For a damaging deck, you may want Electrostatic Field . For a card-drawing deck, The Magic Mirror and Niv-Mizzet, Parun make a great combo. If you want to simply buff your creatures to victory, make sure to keep the pumping creatures.
Counterspells are essential, I find Quench is surprisingly useful. Ionize is great too, and everyone seems to love Mystical Dispute too, although it is pricey. Convolute is a cheaper (monetary-wise) thing to use.
I hope this helped you decide on cards!

Like the deck, personally I would add a bit more card draw as this deck seems like it can have problems trying to recover from a boardwipe. Cards like Outpost Siege , Beast Whisperer are classics at this points but even a card like Harmonize could help to get the momentum flowing again. Besides this maybe making room for a few more creatures might be nice as for a creature centric deck you aren't running an amazingly high amount. Some suggestions for cuts to make room for this: Spinning Wheel (expensive and you don't need the colour fixing+ you are in green so land ramp is easy to find), Infuriate (combat tricks are just not that great in commander). Lastly I see you are running some fight cards like Prey Upon maybe looking for this effect on a creature could be a way to up the creature count Thorn Mammoth is a good option. This stays true for other nessecary effects like ramp, etc.

Dragon Throne of Tarkir would certainly improve the robustness of the deck, and I do have several spells currently in there similar to Infuriate (such as Borrowed Hostility , Brute Force ,...), but for now I am tuning the deck for pure speed. But I think as soon as I get a couple games in with my play group they will catch on to what I'm doing and I will switch to a longer game build where Dragon Throne of Tarkir will be super handy!

Pretty much any cantrip cards (ones that cost 1 mana and draw you a card) are always good. Defiant Strike , Expedite , and Crimson Wisps are some of the most popular ones I believe. Then you'll just want other good spells to add like Infuriate , Shelter , Gods Willing , Titan's Strength and other cards that cost small amounts of mana that you can get back every time you cast them with Feather.
And Sunforger is almost a must have in any Boros deck since being able to cast almost any instant speed spell from your deck is crazy good.
