I play Rhonas as one of my decks as well and while it looks weird at first, it really has high potential for a quick kill. You just shouldn't forget one thing, which is that the odds are not in your favour when you play aggro in commander.
I've played my Rhonas twice yesterday and I can only say the most powerful Support creature is definitely Pathbreaker Ibex. If that one resolves and attacks once, at least one opponent is gone for sure. Turn 4 should be the goal, later if it's backed up with removal and protection, because that's when you probably lose to a real combo deck or when control removes all your important stuff. You could do well without the few artifacts you have (maybe Keep the mana artifacts, but not necessarily) and Play Carpet of Flowers, Root Maze, Null Rod and Molder Slug instead. Choke and Prowling Serpopard help to keep the majority of (objectively) better commander decks in check.
You can use Berserk on rhonas everytime and he won't die. Invigorate, Vines of Vastwood, Phytoburst and Might of Old Krosa can easily push through a lot of commander dmg to make the blocks in the mid game already difficult for every defending opponent. I would also say that Triumph of the Hordes and Overwhelming Stampede are a must in green decks that win with combat damage.

How often will you trigger Hunger of the Howlpack?
Invigorate is free powerful infect pump.

I have made a deck like this and I would recommend that you use an Artful Dodge or a Aqueous Form to make your Glistener Elf and Ichorclaw Myr unblockable. I would also recommend spending some more money on land, maybe a Misty Rainforest or a Breeding Pool. Another great card is Invigorate. It works because you're dealing infect instead of damage. It is the only reason my deck is not currently modern legal.

Honestly I think the best way to use Arahbo is to not cast him but abuse his free boost for cheap double strikers and infect (see my comment under your help post).
Infect is basically a one shot strategy in EDH, one attack to kill a player because it's easy and often unexpected in an otherwise non-infect deck. Lost Leonin with Arahbo is already 5 infect, so you only need something like Phytoburst or Berserk to get to 10. Triumph of the Hordes is also a must play in any green aggro deck, because it will kill at least one player, maybe even all opponents.
Probably the most important creatures will be Adorned Pouncer and Skyhunter Skirmisher. Throw a Rancor on them and you already hit for 12 dmg, Invigorate, Mutagenic Growth, Vines of Vastwood or again Berserk multiply the damage output of these cheap cats to an insanely high number. Green offers quite a few cheap tutors to find the double strikers in the early game.
I would only play a few bigger cats as late game saviors and aim at a kill before the first mass removal is likely to hit the board. Only play like 1-3 beaters at once and try to get the best out of the free +3/+3 from the command zone

I would cut a lot of the creatures and equipment with higher mana costs. Worldly Tutor, Sylvan Tutor, Eladamri's Call should help finding the best beaters you have, Cataclysm and Armageddon are good to prevent control decks from interacting with your creatures too much.

miracle while the picture of cats directly fighting dragons is indeed ridiculous, I still think that Arahbo shines in the command zone, not in play. The free +3/+3 every turn is what makes this deck so fast and good.
We have Adorned Pouncer, which can drop on turn 1, or Lost Leonin and green offers several additional pump spells like Invigorate and Berserk or Phytoburst. Let's imagine we drop the pouncer on turn 1 with Mox Diamond or Chrome Mox and turn 2 we can play another land and cast Phytoburst and Berserk. That makes the pouncer a 18/9 double strike in the attack on turn 2, basically taking out one player on the spot if they don't react. That's a lot faster and realistic than any dragon tribal deck could possibly kill.
