Might want to look into adding these cards for combat step potency. Berserkers' Onslaught, Aggravated Assault, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Savage Ventmaw, Rampaging Baloths, Skarrgan Hellkite, End-Raze Forerunners, terrastodon, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Scourge of the Throne
And these cards for card-draw and mana ramp Beast Whisperer, Garruk's Uprising, Castle Garenbrig, Llanowar Elves, Temple of Abandon, Gruul Turf, Sheltered Thicket, Cragcrown Pathway Flip, Return of the Wildspeaker, Elvish Mystic, Hunter's Insight, Ilysian Caryatid, Guardian Project, Bonders' Enclave, Nylea, Keen-Eyed,Lifecrafter's Bestiary
And the cuts I were thinking of could be Vivien, Champion of the Wilds, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Giant Adephage, Spidersilk Armor, Mistcutter Hydra, Shifting Ceratops, Sunder Shaman, Voracious Hydra, Rhonas's Monument, Blood Mist
This are just my first initial thoughts on the deck.

It looks like the spoilers that I put the non-Boros giant suggestions aren't working. So weird. I'll try to reconstruct what I suggested.
So I know you had your heart set on Brion as your commander, but I wanted to list all the good giants with , and in their colors, as there are a bunch that are excellent. Brion doesn't bring much to the giant-tribal table other than a small-ish lifelinking Giant body and occasional face-damage. You may want to use Iroas, God of Victory or Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas as your commander if you're dead-set on staying Boros colors. If the idea of fully exploring Giants in Magic's history is the goal, and being the most Giant-y deck, having more colors or all five colors will give you a greater creature spread and significantly help with the deck's function.
Arbor Colossus - great rate! Worth considering
Beanstalk Giant - ramp AND a giant body! Worth considering
Earthshaker Giant - Worth considering
Garenbrig Paladin - playable, but probably wouldn't make the cut in a five-color deck
Gorm the Great - interesting choice, and nice at four mana, but probably not worth a slot
Marshdrinker Giant - odd removal piece.
Nylea's Colossus - good effect even without a ton of enchantment support. Worth considering
Outland Colossus - Worth considering
Rampart Smasher - watch out, Knights! Probably wouldn't make the cut
Skyshroud Troll - Regeneration is always nice, but the stats aren't great
Sunder Shaman - fucking awesome giant. One of the best reasons to consider running Green cards. Can't recommend enough.
Swarmborn Giant - kinda a weird one, but interesting nonetheless
Towering Titan - potentially awesome! Worth considering
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath - fucking incredible. Pretend you're terrorizing standard! That pricetag though :(
Valleymaker - very interesting utility. Potentially worth considering, but might not make the cut in a five-color deck.
Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig - Absolutely stellar Giant. three on-color might be hard to swing in a five-color deck, although any deck would probably lean Green due to ramp and utility. Very much worth considering.
Galecaster Colossus - extremely strong Giant. better in Wizard-tribal decks, but is still really good on its own.
Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - A real powerhouse. Highly recommended
Ruhan of the Fomori - Another excellent giant. Highly recommended
Skaab Goliath - Pretty decent. Might not make the cut in 5-color but worth considering]
Thryx, the Sudden Storm - Incredible! Ramp AND a flying body. A perfect reason to run Blue. Highly recommended
Bartel Runeaxe - this is a giant. Probably only worth running for the memes. Expensive too. A piece of Giant Magic history though.
Doomwake Giant - Pretty decent even without Enchantment support--lots of one-toughness support creatures out there.
Erebos's Titan - slightly recursive threat. Decent
Grave Titan - an utter powerhouse. One of the best giants. Highly recommended
Grixis Slavedriver - decent for a common. Probably not quite worth a slot.
Helldozer - pretty good! Three on-color might be hard but the payoff is huuuge.
Knight of the Last Breath - leaving behind blockers is pretty good. (Mana)-expensive though.
Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger - Pretend you're terrorizing Standard!! Incredible Giant, but expensive.
Necrosavant - recursive creature, but you probably don't want to be sacrificing giants
Nightfire Giant - could be decent utility. Not the strongest giant but worth looking at
Tithebearer Giant - good for a common I suppose!
So as you can see, there are a bunch of fantastic Giants outside of Red and White colors. The stand-outs on a budget are:

Some more giants that are worth considering:
Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas - Kalemne is bae, but I'm biased.
Realm-Cloaked Giant - this card is mandatory.
Quarry Colossus - this one is passable.
Grasping Giant - I love this one--just put it in my Giant deck
Oathsworn Giant - Good utility if you are wanting to swing out every turn
Swathcutter Giant - I actually kinda like this one a lot.
Taurean Mauler - one of the best giants, sadly
Bonecrusher Giant - pretend you're terrorizing Standard!
Arbiter of Knollridge - gimmicky but fun.
Boldwyr Intimidator - I have one in my Warrior deck. Very funny card. Not exactly a powerhouse at 7CMC but the unblockable aspect could win a game here and there.
Siegebreaker Giant - Pretty good for 5 mana IMO
Non-Boros Giants Show
Beanstalk Giant - Ramp AND a giant body
Thryx, the Sudden Storm - Ramp and a giant FLYING body!
Outland Colossus - great rate
Arbor Colossus - great rate
Helldozer is pretty good, but three on-color is often difficult to do in a five-color deck
Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig - Three on-color is difficult in three- and five-color decks, but most would skew Green for the utility and ramp cards so it wouldn't be impossible.
Galecaster Colossus - good even by itself
Erebos's Titan - a weird one!
Jotun Owl Keeper - another weird one!
One thing that's tricky with Giants is that they are traditionally commons and uncommons; usually rare large red creatures are Dragons. As such, many giants are pretty low-impact or poor deals for their mana (think of the classic Hill Giant). There are enough good ones to fill out a deck, though, but you gotta hunt for them.

I find I agree with your input about Rampart Smasher which is basically a Sunder Shaman lets be honest lol.. but either way I do find I lack more removal, I tried to keep it in theme with giants however. I think some early game removal would be quite ideal. If I’m being honest, I might swap out for Storm's Wrath as I think many of my creatures are big enough to survive it. But you could also argue for Garruk's Uprising in here too.. hmmm

MagicalHacker haha omg are your fingers OK after typing all that ? you go right ahead and hiijack away. im just glad to be socializing, and to be honest everyone is so focused on fishhulk that they ether don't care or don't notice that i am trying to warn them that the change in first hand probability has already resulted in much worse decks. turn 0 and turn 1 decks currently exist in commander and when they hit main stream we can expect more banned cards. But im ok with all of it because a banned list is more like a suggested do not use list when your dealing with an unsanctioned format.
As for your suggested cards. all of them are great and i do own them. i just like to do dumber more unexpected plays. like surprise Temur Battle Rage on a chump blocked Sunder Shaman Then after they had a moment to let that settle in Emergence Zone into a Mycosynth Lattice.
(not counting my competitive decks) i build to pull of those 1 in a million trick shot moves with little care of getting an actual "w" don't get me wrong winning is great and all. but post game banter about those amazing combo's being pulled of is just so much better.

Bonecrusher Giant is probably the card I would insert if I find Sunder Shaman and Klothys, God of Destiny , or Gallia of the Endless Dance under-perform. Its tough trying to balance how many copies of each new card to play without actually testing it out, but that's how I made room for Klothys, God of Destiny . Its not that the devotion is the main payoff, but its better if my creatures incidentally turned her into a 4/5 indestructible fairly reliably. I think a Shock to the opponents face most turns is a huge payoff and tried to include some cards that would maximize the god's potential as a big beater.
