Gain control of target creature or Vehicle until end of turn. Untap it. It gains haste until end of turn.
You may cast a card with converted mana cost 2 or less from your hand without paying its mana cost.

Initial thoughts. Deck needs to be piled out to see what needs to be shored up. Look up 8x8 deck building theory. Once its piled itll be more clear.
Sage of Fables - Expensive
Trinket Mage - Fetches nothing
Goblin Bombardment - Expensive
Spinal Embrace - really high CMC for effect
Dreadhorde Butcher - a must
Talisman of Creativity - minus a locket or signet
Stalking Vengeance (maybe)

So I’m running: 3 Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma 3 Traxos, Scourge of Kroog 3 Fleetwheel Cruiser 3 Phyrexian Soulgorger 3 Ghalta, Primal Hunger 2 Birds of Paradise 4 Sol Ring 4 Sarkhan's Unsealing 2 Colossal Majesty 4 Thud 4 Fling 2 Manamorphose 2 Kari Zev's Expertise 4 Stomping Ground 4 Rootbound Crag 2 Cinder Glade 1 Game Trail 6 Snow-Covered Forest 6 Snow-Covered Mountain I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet, but play testing hands, it seems a lot of fun. :)

Ghalta, Primal Hunger does seem like a good bet. Flinging for 12 is so tasty!!
I really like the idea of Sol Ring , as they serve as an untap for Traxos, as well.
Once it rotates, and if it drops in price, I'd like to include Carnage Tyrant , especially for multiplayer games.
I guess I'm not sure which balance of creatures to run.
Do I need Fleetwheel Cruiser ? Maybe Ghalta instead of Fleetwheel?

I would cut:
Insufficiently on theme - these are good cards but don´t take advantage of your commander or what you´re trying to do. Magnetic Theft , Comeuppance , Electrodominance , Lapse of Certainty , Panic , Return to Dust , Teferi's Protection , Temur Battle Rage , Titan's Strength , Wear , Acrobatic Maneuver , Wheel of Fortune , Blasphemous Act , Day of Judgment , Empty the Warrens , Faithless Looting , Gamble , Kari Zev's Expertise , Wrath of God ,
Paradox Engine was recently banned in commander.
Given that I cut more than the needed 16 I´ll point out a couple feather allstars you´re missing.
Aurelia's Fury - does so much. One damage to one of your creatures and you have repeatable tapping, removal, and combo protection. Intimidation Bolt - repeatable fog when targeting your own creature. Spawning Breath - this is your smothering tithe replacement, mana, creatures for Zada to target, and removal in a pinch all on an instant. Orim's Thunder - kicked is the best repeatable enchantment and artifact removal I´ve found.

I'd look at Kari Zev's Expertise and Electrodominance for footfalls- there are already lists tinkering with that out there which put up results, and Ancestral Vision is amazing. Risk Factor is a strictly better browbeat.

Well, here's what I would do:
-all 15 creatures
+4 Fatal Push
+4 Rune Snag
+1 Mana Leak

Dreadhorde Arcanist is perfect for this deck, genius. Would probably cut Rancor , Simic Charm and Kari Zev's Expertise for more copies of both Arcanist and Bloodbraid Elf . Maybe it could be good to add a couple of Faithless Looting to fuel Pteramander , pitch Crashing Footfalls and Ancestral Vision for Arcanist and setting up the "combo"?
