The idea behind this build is to only use green items to make a Primal Strike build. I also hate using Savagery as a buff - so build is without it. As a second class I went for Demolitionist because of resistance reduction, total speed, flat damage, OA and DA bonuses. Core of the build is Korvan Storm Halberd. Monster Infrequents were chosen in such way to fix things in the build (resistances, additional bonuses to skills etc.). Build does SR 65-66 easily.
Here is a list comparing all my Primal Strike builds from best to worst. All are at least SR 65-66 capable.
Dragonborn – great build, 2H melee physical PS, good offensively and very powerful defensively (best of my PS builds)
Thor – great build, 2H melee lightning PS, offensively similar to Dragonborn, defensively noticably weaker than Dragonborn
Aetheros Ranged – great build, 2H ranged aether PS, offensively a little weaker than Dragonborn, defensively a little weaker than Thor
Aetheros – great build, 2H melee aether PS, offensively a little better than Aetheros Ranged (and a little weaker than Dragonborn), defensively a little weaker than Aetheros Ranged
Colderos – great build, 2H melee cold PS, offensively noticably better than Dragonborn (best of my PS builds), defensively a little weaker than Aetheros
Colderos Ranged – great build, 2H ranged cold PS, offensively a little weaker than Colderos, defensively a little weaker than Colderos (actually only when facetanking bosses otherwise you can take out enemies from distance)
Viteros – good build, 2H melee vitality PS, offensively a little weaker than Aetheros Ranged, defensively similar to Colderos Ranged
Meme Striker – good build, 2H melee lightning PS, offensively similar to Colderos, defensively noticably weaker than Colderos Ranged
Storm Knight – good build, 1H melee + shield lightning PS, offensively noticably weaker than Viteros, defensively a little weaker than Meme Striker
Storm Blitzer – good build, 1H melee + shield lightning PS, offensively a little weaker than Storm Knight, defensively a little weaker than Storm Knight
Savage Stormrender – OK build, DW melee lightning PS on cooldown, offensively noticably weaker than Storm Knight, defensively a little weaker than Storm Knight
BUILD IS FOR GDSTASHERS ONLY because of crazy double rare items that can not be realistically found in the game!!!
Two crafting bonuses are to freeze resistance, one to slow resistance and one to energy regeneration.

I play SR with camera pointed away from enemies and I try my builds only in SR 65-66 and SR 80. I play around 10 SR runs per character.
Build does SR 65-66 easily. It can even do SR 80. It behaves like a glass cannon in SR 80 so be careful. Performance will greatly depend on your skills. Don’t be too lazy with this build or you will die. It kills fast but you can’t tank everything. Getting nullified is an instant death sentence. Physical hitters are dangerous. Avoid Benny’s and Kaisan’s crystals and also Aleks’ meteor. It can go higher if you are a skilled player.
I don’t have a time number for Crucible because I don’t play it.
