Will of the council — At the beginning of your upkeep, starting with you, each player votes for carnage or homage. If carnage gets more votes, sacrifice Coercive Portal and destroy all nonland permanents. If homage gets more votes or the vote is tied, draw a card.

Coercive Portal Discussion

It's like some kind of distorted Kenrith deck. I love it.
Head Games is so much fun! I run it in my Kenrith deck. You can give an opponent an answer for a big threat or a hand full of lands. Really versatile.

Neat multiplayer deck! I can see it's based in voting and multiplayer politics, i'm a really big fan of this idea
I notice you're playing Terramorphic Expanse Evolving Wilds, and Esper Panorama without playing any basic lands... It may be worth it to take out some of the slower ETB Tapped lands in favor of some basics here.
You should consider some of these cards: Coercive Portal -> Nets you an extra card each turn or wraths the board based on each players' decision Oreskos Explorer or Boreas Charger -> Good way to get you out of a situation where you're down on lands, with a nice multiplayer theme Wayfarer's Bauble -> Mana ramp in non-green colors Crystal Shard or Erratic Portal -> Buys back your own creatures that may have ETB effects, can also save your duders in a pinch Split Decision -> Voting card that can either copy a spell or counter one
Duskmantle Seer is always fun in a deck where you consistently have more life than an opponent

I imagine Cabal Stronghold might be up your alley. Lashwrithe is just a fun an efficient beater in black that works with any of your small guys as well. Heck, as a control deck Empowered Autogenerator should keep your high curved sated in time. Mind Sludge seems like reasonably powerful discard power.
Given this is control idk why you wouldn't have draw power such as Phyrexian Arena , or even Underworld Connections , Coercive Portal . Ob Nixilis Reignited even serves those goals with some removal splashed in.

You also don't have any card draw. You do have a good source in the command zone, which, is nice. Unfortunately, Boros colors do draw the worst, so you'll have to rely on some not-so-budget mostly-colorless staples or less-than-efficient engines. The prevailing wisdom is ~8 draw pieces but you'll be lucky to have half that in Boros colors. I personally consider card advantage in the command zone to count as ~2 draw cards due to the accessibility.
Mind's Eye , Staff of Nin , Arch of Orazca , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Reforge the Soul , Cathartic Reunion , Rogue's Gloves , Infiltration Lens Coercive Portal , Mask of Memory , Trading Post , Conqueror's Galleon Flip, and Well of Lost Dreams are about as good as you can get without going into much more expensive cards or other colors.
Good luck and have fun! I hear Depala is a fun commander.

You're playing enforcer: You need good Enforcer Cards. I'm not sure how often you're using your commander's ability (there seems to be a synergy in Dingus Egg ) which makes me super happy.
Here's some that come to mind (that aren't Cyclonic Rift-priced): Chandra's Ignition Blasphemous Act Slaughter the Strong , Tragic Arrogance and Boompile . The last one I've seen used to great effect similar to Oblivion Stone without having to hold up them mana or Nevinyrral's Disk / Slows the board down (or makes you the enemy, but you're playing Jokulhaups--you're not being nice).
Get rid of the Myr mana generators and put in Talismans ( Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , and, if you want to spend a little, Talisman of Progress ). I say this because you're gonna kill creatures a lot with your sweepers. Talismans also have the added benefit of being 2-colored fixing and no summoning sickness. Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart Should replace your other dorks (better value, don't care about sweeps.)
Now, What do Overpowered decks like to do: 1) Abuse triggers: Hushwing Gryff , and Torpor Orb are amazing because you have no ETB triggers on your creatures. 2) Abuse Specific Cards: This is a two parter. First, you can get rid of/hamper combo cards you know of with things like Extract or $ Meddling Mage or Pithing Needle / Sorcerous Spyglass -type effects. OR, you could go after their ability to actively find their answers with Stranglehold , Aven Mindcensor , or Mindlock Orb . The latter choice murders people with search lands... but your deck already does that in spades (Make it hurt worse with Thalia, Heretic Cathar ) 3) Use Crazy Manabases: Ruination , Price of Progress , Blood Moon , Magus of the Moon . Hates yourself pretty good, too, but that's what you wanted? Impending Disaster is a fun play 4) Graveyards: If you can't afford Rest in Peace , The next best things are Grafdigger's Cage and Silent Gravestone are the best IMO.
FINALLY; You need more draw. Budget Wheel of Fortune , Wheel of Fate is good, Windfall is an Auto-include. Mystic Remora is a gamble, but not bad. What I think would be great in this deck is Zedruu the Greathearted . Give away your things that hurt everyone, because It (usually) doesn't matter who controls them. Coercive Portal is also nice in a big game like you're gonna play. Get some voting going!... That was an aside.. and kinda draw, kinda gross.
I hope that helps. If you know some of these folks commanders, I can suggest further Shenanigans

If the former: Border Guard , Soldier of the Pantheon , Unquestioned Authority , Tragic Arrogance , Gauntlet of Power , Warmonger's Chariot , Eternal Dominion , Scorched Earth , and Disdainful Stroke . And maybe some of the 'each player votes' cards like Coercive Portal and Ballot Broker .
If the later, I'll have to ponder some more ... Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the only one that comes immediately to mind.

Chainer's game plan should be something like... Ramp > Control > Reanimate.
Focus on filling and stealing from your opponents' graveyards and protecting Chainer.
Stax: Honestly, I would avoid hard stax. It encourages your opponents to hate you and escalate their power-level.
What this deck really needs is ramp: 38-40 lands and 12-16 cards like Bubbling Muck , Charcoal Diamond , Heartless Summoning , Burnished Hart , Coalition Relic , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Magus of the Coffers , Gauntlet of Power , Nirkana Revenant , etc. Also Phyrexian Tower .
...If you want to lean into stax... here's a list for evil people :)
