Given you're playing in Modern:
Jund Titan seems like a fun build. You'd play 4x each Utopia Sprawl , Arbor Elf , and Ignoble Hierarch maybe with a couple Birds of Paradise . All of your lands should tap for green or black, as you're splashing red for Temur Battle Rage and Thud , possibly Lightning Bolt as well.
An optimal play would be
Turn One Arbor Elf
Turn Two Utopia Sprawl, tap it and untap the sprawled land for 4 mana, drop Titan
Turn three swing with titan and use either TBR or Thud to pull a turn three kill.
You get a lot of power from Grisly Salvage digging 5 cards deep for a titan, and also just swinging with titan a couple times typically wins the game if you can use 's great removal suite to keep the board clear.
It probably won't be top tier by any means, as Path to Exile and Thoughtseize easily trash your fast kills, but it should work.

It should be noted that Call of the Death-Dweller can only bring back one Thunderkin Awakener since two would have a combined cmc of 4. Another possible card to look at could be Thud . I found it to be fairly fun as a pseudo- Lightning Bolt with Hellspark Elemental when I wasn't sacrificing my opponents' own creatures. The 6 power elementals would make any Fling effects even better than that, although you don't get the combat damage trigger like with Assault Strobe . Still a way to clear blockers or just ignore them entirely though.

Rain of Filth , Thud and Rite of Consumption ? You have a lot of sac outlets and they don't do as much as some of the others. Ritual of the Machine was another suggestion but that's over $10 now. Prices sneak up on me over the decades

CaveBoy - LOL, Thud is fantastic. I do have Fling in the Maybeboard. Thud economically is good value for sure -- 1 Red to fling our buffed creature? Fantastic! My only concern is the sorcery speed of Thud , however since a part of the idea of this deck is to lean more on the casual side, Thud does make a good fit if you wanted to go through the fling-card route. I'm holding off on that personally to give more of a chance for the Living Weapon themed Mortarpod to shine in combination with a pumped up Fireblade Charger , in terms of big damage. Thud / Fling is technically better, as it's basically doubling Fireblade Charger 's effect, but this is supposed to be a Living Weapons deck! I wanna use Mortarpod ! Haha. That being said, it does become even more compelling to use if you were to swap out Warren Instigator for the Maybeboard-card, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade . A lovely card for the deck in many aspects and to myself (I love the look of that Future Sight border sooo much -- they're my favorite aesthetically), Korlash, Heir to Blackblade with a Lashwrithe and/or Cranial Plating will make him a big boy. If you happen upon a 2nd copy in hand, you can buff while also ramp, and of course if you were to have Thud or Fling , you're dishing out some spicy damage. Lots of fun ideas here!

at first glance i am going to suggest
Test of Endurance , Felidar Sovereign
Serra Avatar , Scourge of the Skyclaves , Malignus
Brion Stoutarm , Rite of Consumption , Fling , Thud
note: there are many other cards with similar effects so that these functions can be consistently played
its a busy day at work today but ill try to get some time later to do a more through inspection
