I like the commander, love the vampire theme. I just don't understand how the deck is supposed to win in a multiplayer format. Ultimately this all comes down to your playgroup and how competitive the deck is, what the meta is, all that good stuff. Most vampire decks to date have done Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond / Defiant Bloodlord. Or stealing opponents stuff with Olivia Voldaren in the late game. Or even Vampire Hexmage + Dark Depths. In my experience, very rarely are you going to be able to overwhelm all of your opponents with vampires that have had time to grow and get fat. Heavy creature decks that also generate tokens are huge Wrath of God magnets.
You may want to consider some more removal if you plan on keeping the win condition brute force: Merciless Eviction, Austere Command, Tempest of Light, Utter End, Oblation, Red Elemental Blast, Grave Pact, whatever. Otherwise, you fall victim to a huge variety of defensive measures: Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Copy Enchantment, Moat, Crawlspace, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, No Mercy, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, etc.
Finally, it's hard for me to say what I would cut without knowing your meta, but I'll give it a go: Confusion in the Ranks, Harsh Mercy, Insolent Neonate, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Attrition, Urge to Feed. These cards are either too finite, or have circumstantial value. Other than that, I challenge you to look at your creature base, I know you want to get a lot of value out of Edgar Markov but the creatures themselves need to bring a lot to the table too.

Overall, the deck looks good, especially on a budget! I'm a fan of RW as an EDH color combination - if you want to look over a deck in exchange, and also find some cards you might use, I'd appreciate if you'd look at my Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER* deck haha.
I feel like your deck could use a Gratuitous Violence. It would double the damage your hasty creatures deal, while also doubling the damage (and life gain) you reap from Brion throwing them. To spit it out earlier, you could run Academy Rector, and use Brion to sac her :)
Crumbling Colossus is your weakest high-power creature by quite a margin, and would be my first cut.
You have Swords to Plowshares in here, but there's other removal you might want to be playing (Path to Exile, Oblation, Chaos Warp, etc). Also, add an Enlightened Tutor to your Sunforger Package; you'll thank me later haha.
Your ramp is...marginal at best, I'm afraid. I personally would try to play all of the 2-mana rocks you can, since they let you cast Brion on T3. That suggests Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Marble Diamond, Iron Myr, Gold Myr, and Mind Stone (listed from best to worst). Normally I'd suggest Mana Crypt too, but it's worth half as much as your deck in total ;) I'd cut your 3-mana rocks wherever possible.
RW always lacks card draw. You literally only have 2 cards in this deck that can draw you cards, however. That is a PROBLEM. I'd recommend getting a Memory Jar, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, and Wheel of Fate. Yes, I am aware of the cost of Wheel, but it's vital to your deck, and it's a good investment (price keeps going up, and it's good in every red deck). If you're feeling fancy, Scroll Rack+Land Tax is another super good combo ;)
Hope that's helpful! :)

I run a similar list including anya in the 99 but with tajic at the helm.
Due to her indestructible nature and access to stuff like Boros Charm Frontline Medic Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Iroas, God of Victory, i would recommend running powerful spells that indestructible creatures like anya, see my list for reference, but a ton of spells exist that anya survives but everything else wont
Also, your lack of tutors is disturbing :/
As far as artifact theme, you're missing a few key cards
Without this, a single Vandalblast neuters your game plan
not just flavor, this card allows you to run a "toolbox" of 1-4 cmc instants, some i run in tajic are
Creatures constantly being destroyed? Fear not. Leave 4 mana open and anya and friends will NEVER die, it also abuses etb effects like Godo, Bandit Warlord

goblinguiderevealpls all the cards you said are phenomenal. Austere Command is a card I've been wanting to put in my deck for some time now. Regrettably I haven't been able to get my hands on one. Once I do you can be certain it is going in. Also, I was waiting for the price to go down on Anguished Unmaking and Utter End to add them. They are better than Banishing Light and Oblation, even though they are more mana intensive. I got distracted and forgot to pick them up. Thanks for the reminder!
As for Countersquall it is a great card but as far as counters go it is a little low impact. The two life doesn't really mean much in a format with 40 life. I'd more often than not want a counter that can be more versatile. Hour of Revelation is a powerful card but it's safer to run a board wipe that will keep my artifacts in play.
Thanks for the feedback! Are you planning on making a Sen Triplets decks?

Thanks for the tip, sundial is a card I hadn't seen before but I really like it. Mind's Eye is also a card I want to play, I just haven't bought it yet. The sword is kind of out of my current budget, but I have been looking at Mask of Memory, other options I have considered are Oblation which goes well with the tokens and is very versatile, and Staff of Nin. I also want to try Hazoret's Undying Fury and Leave / Chance which while not strictly card advantage allows me to pitch excess lands and goes well with the wraths.

Ok, starting with the lands... In my experience the karoo lands are bad. I decided to cut them down of my decks. They're good if you're playing landfall, nothing else. So, Boros Garrison could be the Battlefield Forge or Arid Mesa depending on budget.Besides, your deck has a very low mana curve. I'd reduce it to 37 lands + 4 mana rocks. One of those lands would have to be Temple of the False God while the other would have to be Buried Ruin. For mana rocks the regular Sol Ring, Boros Signet, Boros Cluestone and Worn Powerstone if available.We're talking 41 mana producers. 1 more than you're using. That's ok because you can't use Cranial Plating (it has black mana in the abilities, making it a card you can't use in a Boros deck). Off with it and we're back at 100 cards.
Sunforger is fun... But you don't have a build to take advantage of it. I'd swap it for a Loxodon Warhammer. I might also remove some of your less sturdy creatures (you might have too many of them and they tend to be quite small) to add better equipment. Batterskull comes to mind (living weapons might be quite helpful in such a deck!). As does Argentum Armor. And stuff that gives equipped creature double strike.I might have missed something... But I don't see what use are your Illusionist's Bracers.
Something else that you're missing are removal spells. Be it either mass or spot removal, you need it. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Condemn, Oblation, Chaos Warp are all great options. And Boros Charm would also be good. If you add these you can easily keep your Sunforger. More so if you add Mistveil Plains in place of a regular plain.
I'd also add Sun Titan...
Well, this might be enough food for thought right now. :)

The beauty of Kaalia is despite the obvious shell of "Aggro General", you can play her however you want. You can pick one of the three tribes and stick to a tribal deck instead of running all three. You can make a stax build since Kaalia cheats stuff in. With that in mind, the following are cards that can fit in any general Kaalia deck (suggestions on left, remove on right/change up removals how you see fit).
- Crackling Doom - Bathe in Light
- Anguished Unmaking - Cleansing Beam
- Dragon Tempest - Righteous Cause
- Phyrexian Arena - Soul Snare
- Chromatic Lantern - Armillary Sphere
- Strionic Resonator - Pyrohemia
- Amulet of Vigor - Sulfurous Blast
- Tragic Arrogance - Evincar's Justice
- Night's Whisper/Read the Bones - Syphon Mind/Flesh
- Oblation/Chaos Warp - Wrecking Ball/Congregate
- Most of the creatures in general could be swapped for whatever, but overall would bring the count down below 25 including Kaalia. Notable creatures though are Angel of Serenity, Archfiend of Depravity, and Hellkite Tyrant
If you'd like more suggestions, this is my Kaalia decklist that I've been working on since her intial release. I tried to give good reasoning on each aspect of the deck in the descriptions so you can have a better idea of what I do with each card. Other than that, good luck!

Id look into upgrading some of the removal, because chump blockers can make your life difficult. Stuff like Path to Exile and Wrath of God for creatures and possibly extra stuff for other stuff like Return to Dust and Oblation. Removing problems is a good way to make sure that you have enough time to set up like you want to.
