Warstorm Surge, Pandemonium, and Stalking Vengeance also burn your opponents while you sneak creatures in or make zombies. Since Garna gives haste, Furystoke Giant, Nettle Drone, Lightning-Rig Crew, Goblin Fireslinger, Goblin Sharpshooter, and Cinder Pyromancer can also deal damage. Myr can also tap for mana before being sacrificed.
Razaketh, the Foulblooded is good for finding other combo pieces.
I have a tentative list you can check out.

Hey, you asked me for more help. lupin5th's gave you good advice. Add pingers, cards that have an activated ability that can do damage to an opponent thus making them lose life. Letting you cast your Commander or reduce the CMC of a another creature to cast. Play cards that don't require you to spend any additional mana to make an opponent(s) lose life this way you can really benefit from reducing the CMC of a creature.
To expand on Lupin5th's suggestions consider adding these cards:
- Lobber Crew
- Nettle Drone
- Goblin Fireslinger
- Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip
- Viashino Heretic
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
- Vial Smasher the Fierce
- Sin Prodder
- Inferno Titan
- Mogis, God of Slaughter
It looks like you have a Demon theme here as the high end creatures, that's fine, but understand that you really need enablers, cards that can make your opponent's lose life before you can realistically play a large amount of these high CMC Demons.
Rakdos, Lord of Riots has double red in it's CC. You're not playing enough red sources in the manabase to consistently be able to play your Commander. 26x Swamps are not needed, you can cut a lot of these for some Mountains and more dual lands. All my suggestions are also red, some even have double red CCs, to include these cards you'll want a lot more red sources in the manabase.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Abhorrent Overlord
- Apocalypse Demon
- Havoc Demon
- Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis
- Shadowborn Demon
- Xathrid Demon
- Assault Suit
- Staff of the Death Magus
- Worn Powerstone
- Reign of the Pit

To make the best use of lord of riots you'll need stuff that inflicts damage to your opponents.
Also consider adding these:Command Tower, Path of Ancestry
Best of luck.

@EasyBr0wnies343 Thanks for the recommendations! I am trying to stay away from converting this to a creature deck since my pet deck is Affinity (entire gameplan is swinging with creatures), so I want a different play style to work off of. Young Pyromancer allows for the creature token route to be taken if needed, but I do like the idea of splashing colorless for some Eldrazi since I don't have any decks running any Eldrazi other than my Pauper combo deck with Nettle Drone. Matter Reshaper would probably never land anything since I only have 9 permanents in the entire deck other than lands, but I really like the idea of using Search Warrant and Endbringer since they gives me more control information and also follow the subtheme of life gain. I will add them to the maybeboard!

Animar is my pet deck but I have gone for a more competitive route. Big Eldrazi Animar is a lot of fun to play for sure though. I would suggest Ancestral Statue which you can bounce infinitely with 4 counters and make Animar infinity large. Very cheap card.If you are going for a colorless style deck I would recommend Thought Harvester and Nettle Drone. You need more removal as well so maybe Kozilek's Return or Lightning Bolt World Breaker

Permafrost thx for the suggestions. I'm not sure about Lobber Crew, as I only have 4 multicolored cards in the entire deck. But I like Nettle Drone a lot more because it has 3 power, it can tap to do dmg, and I have many colorless spells. Good call! I think I'll take out Sheoldred, Whispering One because it's much better in a control deck (here, the card is too slow).
The way I've built the deck (very aggressively) means that the deck can't run out of steam, even for a bit. So I'm reluctant to take out card draw (Syphon Mind).
