Wow, the deck looks nice! Though, to perform the Gitrog loop you need something to shuffle the graveyard back into the library, like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Gaea's Blessing, otherwise you are going to mill yourself without dealing enough damage to kill everyone. You may also consider Borborygmos Enraged, works just like Seismic Assault, but you can Tooth and Nail him into play alongside The Gitrog Monster for an instant win.
If you have Cavalier of Flame on the field, you can one-shot everyone with an Obliterate and a sufficient amount of lands into play, which doesn't seem like a nuisance for you. Of course you will draw a lot of hate because of this card, maybe it's preferable not to include it, but it's an option.
Overall, really cool list!

epott It's not silly! I totally get not playing the ascension, but thought it should be recommended in the event you hadn't thought of it! I also get the downsides to Rampage of the Clans. I'm a bit of a chaotic/go-for-the-crazy-move kind of player so it's a card I love. Glad you like the Tower Defense rec. That was an easy one to upgrade.
I do love the flavor you have going on in your Artifact department. I missed that before!
Lastly, I notice a lack of board wipes (unless I missed something on your list or it's another flavor/casual choice over competitive then you can ignore this). But Wave of Vitriol, The Great Aurora, Bearer of the Heavens, Obliterate, Decree of Annihilation, Hour of Devastation could be some options for you. (Creeping Renaissance as something to bring back a permanent type if you're looking for that as well.)
If you have the time I'll take feedback on my budget version of Gallia. It's far from great and I have yet to actually use the deck but it never hurts to get another pair of eyes on something. No worries if you don't!

I feel like the deck is solid, definite room for growth, but for the budget incredibly effective. There are some weaknesses, but the deck definitely can be a powerhouse.
Biggest room for improvement:
Resolve the small issues (See below)
Issues that I see:
-Few ways of protecting Kaalia
-Few ways of drawing cards
-Slightly not enough ramp, try adding 2 more
-Too high CMC on non-angel/demon/dragon cards
-Few ways of removing single targets
-Slightly too many board wipes
-Slightly too few lands, adding a few will allow you to have more keep-able hands
Cards to add: (These are some good budget substitutions for cards you have and will make the deck run smoothly, I listed the card kingdom prices in ()'s)
Talisman of Indulgence (2.3)
Fellwar Stone (3.5)
Coldsteel Heart (1.5)
Chaos Warp (1.5)
Harvester of Souls (1.3)
Bloodgift Demon (1)
Demonlord Belzenlok (.8)
Boros Charm (2.5)
Apostle's Blessing (.25)
Giver of Runes (3)
Caves of Koilos (1)
The total for cards to add should only be about $25
Cards to take out to make room:
The next big move will be to improve the landbase. 35 is the right amount for the deck, in my opinion, however it definitely could use an upgrade. Having a consistent land base allows you to easier play Kaalia on turn 3 or 4. It also helps you to consistently have the colors of mana you need, when you need them. I would add/completed the cycles in this order. These are listed from cheapest to most expensive.

Joe_Ken_ Definitely like the idea of Decree of Annihilation. Would you run that in place of Obliterate / Armageddon, or would you run in addition to? I used to run Smothering Tithe and I understand the usefulness for sure. It's just that every time I had it in had, it always felt a little underwhelming to drop, maybe I should circle back and take a closer look though.

As someone who has been tinkering with this deck for a long time, very very good primer! A few key cards seem to be missing from consideration in the way of Sneak Attack most notably. I don't really understand Unstable Obelisk. It is nice to be able to remove anything, but it doesn't feel like it pulls its weight. Does it to you? I feel as though an All Is Dust which you'd had mentioned would pull more weight slowing down your opponents without affecting you greatly and also allowing you a way to punch through pillow fort strategies effectively. Lastly, I really like having a finisher of some kind in the form of mass land destruction Obliterate, but that is just me.

This deck is aewsome, I have tried a few times and never let me down, even in defeat it put up a really good fight.
A fast "voltron" deck with double strike creatures and a solid plan with avacyn and some SAC creatures.
I have tried with 10+ of then, the deck really starts to flow better, so you can control the board and finish with big angels and stuffs like that, some cards that prevents from losing is good against combo decks.
Aurelia, the Warleader is a good general for this, one big creature attacking two times can hurt a lot.
And last but not least you can go the dirty strategy, that's where Boros really surpass the others colors but the social contract held us from doing it.
