Artifact — Equipment
Whenever equipped creature attacks, it deals damage equal to its power to the player or planeswalker it's attacking.
Equip (: Attach this to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

Instead of having so many creatures that add counters I think you should have a few more creatures that benefit from a high power. More Trample would be the easiest. Flying, First Strike and Double Strike. Loyal Guardian should be in to add counters however.

So, I gave this another look since we talked.
I think there's too much theme-consistent stuff vs practical-stuff. For example Mage Slayer is on-theme, but practically speaking it's inferior to Loxodon Warhammer or Blanchwood Armor here. Mage Slayer's primary benefit in a deck is that is deals unblockable damage. Your dudes already are punching through, Mage Slayer is just doubling their power here.
Blanchwood Armor would fucking destroy here (even more so if you tossed out Talisman of Impulse for even more Forest ramp). Personally I'd cut something out somewhere (Prolly Talisman of Impulse and/or drop down to 2-of Thorn Elemental) to cram in some way of protecting your dudes. Rhox regenerates, but the other dudes are just screaming to get Go for the Throated

Grull cards that scream gruul to me are
- Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
- Borborygmos Enraged
- Omnath, Locus of Rage
- Xenagos, God of Revels
- Gruul Ragebeast
- Mina and Denn, Wildborn
- Halana and Alena, Partners
Enchantment / artifact
- Xenagos, the Reveler
- Klauth's Will
- Destructive Revelry
- Hull Breach
- Contested Cliffs
- Kessig Wolf Run
These are the most "gruul" cards with both red and green (only red and green) in it, in my opinion.

Big, aggressive mana into big, aggressive creatures, like TypicalTimmy said. Anti-hate and forcing effects through, like SteelSentry said, to which I would add that Gruul is good at punishing stall and non-combat effects (Burning-Tree Shaman, Mage Slayer, etc.)
It doesn't have especially deep combo potential, with something like Nature's Will/Bear Umbra + Aggravated Assault/Hellkite Charger, or something with Scapeshift, being more or less the standard. Control is possible, with a good suite of damage-based creature removal, a huge variety of targeted and mass artifact and enchantment destruction, and targeted land destruction, but the win condition will generally come back to big creatures or damage over time. It can't set any hard locks, but it can find a way to punish an opponent for doing just about anything, even tapping or not tapping lands, even if it's not for mana.
I'd like to see more trickery from the color pair. Red has a very good selection of redirection and randomization effects, and green is good at maximizing its resources, through ramp, draw, and recursion. I can imagine a commander that's all about changing the battlefield and rules, messing up everyone else's strategy while accumulating resources and opportunities. Something that The Great Aurora and Warp World, for example, can fit into.

This seems to have a great structure, but there are a few things that may be improvable. Also, I'm not sure what your price range is, so some of these cards may be a bit too expensive.
Also, not sure if you noticed (I didn't at first when messing with hydras), but the mana from Klauth can only be used to cast spells, so the Hydra Broodmaster and Domesticated Hydra can't use their monstrosity from Klauth's ability, though they are still great cards.
the card Everflowing Chalice may help with what I stated above, and is good for producing large amounts of future mana.
You may want to add a doubling card such as Unbound Flourishing or Branching Evolution to help your creatures get stronger at an exponential rate with Klauth. The card Doubling Season also works, but it is much more expensive.
Sorry if this is a bit long. Hope this helps
