A few things I’ve noticed about the deck.
You run a lot of creature steal but no sac outlet to prevent the creature from returning to your opponents.
Two infinite mana loops in the deck would be beneficial towards running Torment of Hailfire
Thran Turbine helps reduce your commanders activated ability.
Since you’re running Tainted Strike , Glistening Oil gives infect and the negative aspect of it can be controlled with the Unspeakable Symbol and AEther Snap . Phyresis also grants infect. This strategy works exceptionally well with your already built in Dauthi Embrace and Rogue's Passage .
The build is off to a good start, but isn’t very stream lined towards consistency. Polluted Bonds seems like a filler. Stormbreath Dragon is a bad mana dump that is only relevant if opponents draw a large hand and don’t discard down. Situational at best. I’ve only seen Pyrohemia and Pestilence become relevant in jund dino fight decks and devastate your field to much because this deck isn’t geared towards their abuse. You have enough deterrence built in already.
Braid of Fire in the maybe pile would be amazing early game and worth wasting a tutor you grab it since you’ll then have free draws once your commander is out. Speaking of tutors, add Diabolic Intent to sac a creature you stole while tutoring for your wincon pieces.

Honestly, this looks like it would be fun to pilot, and very well put together. Seems pretty streamlined to me. My only suggestion would be to consider something that gives protection from colors or land walk?
Quietus Spike can be a fun thought?
If you wanna play on the wild side, give Heartless Hidetsugu a thought. It can drain that last 1 damage, if you get through with your commander. Lol
+1 for creativity!

Curse of the Pierced Heart seems like a quick way to make an opponent hate you. If they don't have an answer to the enchantment, they might turn to player removal to get rid of it.
Heartless Hidetsugu is definitely powerful, though it has some rather dampening downsides. At 5 CMC, he will be in the top 10% of the cards by cost. This combined with him not doing anything the turn he is played makes it hard to include him.
Scour from Existence would be the highest CMC card on the list if it made it in. There is a definite usefulness in being able to remove any permanent, but it is just too high CMC to play.

Curse of the Pierced Heart for a bolt every turn on a certain player.
Heartless Hidetsugu for a race you win because you're getting an extra 2 damage each time.
Leyline of Punishment for an answer to decks that have options against burn.

Okay, I love the flavor of the deck. I think the damage aspect could still be improved, but I also think it's very hard to focus. So, I apologize for throwing all of these options at you:
Curse of Bloodletting
(I think this would stack),
Claws of Valakut
Jaws of Stone
Breath of Darigaaz
Ashling the Pilgrim
Koth of the Hammer
As for cuts, I (without thinking very much and just reacting to a first read through) am leaning towards: impact tremors, stolen strategy, vicious shadows, war's toll ( I don't think this will stack with mana barbs and burning earth, but I could be totally wrong), red elemental blast, sarkhan the masterless, and ugin the ineffible.
