As your deck list is pretty big so I thought I would give you some ideas for cards to cut.
Akroma, Angel of Fury: good, but does not have a big enough effect for commander
Anger: you're only running 2 mountains
Duergar Hedge-Mage good card but again, you are only running 4 mountains and 6 plains
Fallen Angel: you don't really have a use for a sac engine.
Jayemdae Tome: Just not great
Wrecking Ball no need for land destruction and there is better creature removal
Ghostly Prison:fine cared but has no real reason to be in this deck
Vow of Duty: just run a removal spell
Earthquake, Evincar's Justice, Pyrohemia, Sulfurous Blast: The mardu colors are the king of board wipes, run something better. ie. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Chain Reaction, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Decree of Pain to name a few
Congregate: don't need the life gain. Unless of course you play lots of token decks
Liliana of the Dark Realms: you have 3 swamps
you have a good amount of good creature but because your commander relies on your hand here are some more card draw ideas:Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Damnable Pact, Dragon Mage, Erebos, God of the Dead, Harvester of Souls, Necrologia, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Skeletal Scrying, Underworld Connections, Wretched Confluence, and Read the Bones.
More additional combat phase spell would also greatly benefit you. World at War, Aurelia, the Warleader, Fury of the Horde, Hellkite Charger, Relentless Assault, Savage Beating, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression
in case you haven't already you may want to check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/kaalia-of-the-vast for more card ideas.
Looks like a great start, hope my comments were helpful

Savage Beating, Feudkiller's Verdict, Mother of Runes, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Bastion Protector, Tectonic Rift, Crush Underfoot, Bearer of the Heavens, Quarry Colossus, Kalemne's Captain, Sigarda's Aid would be good good options to consider; but they all depend on how tribal you want your deck to be or how commander centered you want it to play as. A deck like this was the first one I made, a giant exclusive tribal deck. But that was my playstyle and likes, it all depends on how you like your game to run!

I think I would work on cutting down the aura's in place of creatures so that you have more ammo for Kaalia. Kaalia tends to want to be play pretty. Having protection for her is great as she will definitely be a target but if you have no ammo for her she is just a 2/2 flyer. Some of the nastier creatures I like with Kaalia are Rakdos the Defiler. Since you will be cheating him in with Kaalia, attackers will already be declared so you will not have to sac any permanents and generally in most cases your biggest threat will be sacing half of theirs. Just don't attack with him later. He is a reliable blocker though. Iona, Shield of Emeria can slow your opponents down if they share colors or completely hose a deck that favors one color heavily or is mono-colored. Balefire Dragon is awesome cause it can creature wipe someone's board along with being a fatty flyer. Angel of Serenity is versatile as it can get creature back from your yard or get rid of some pesky blockers. While not cheatable with Kaalia, Iroas, God of Victory helps keep your creatures alive when attacking and provides some evasion. Angelic Arbiter forces your opponents to really think out their plays and can force some mistakes on their part. And of course Avacyn, Angel of Hope cause who doesn't want indestructible permanents? If you decide to include some MLD she is particularly nasty and if your MLD resolves you most likely win. Master of Cruelties for sure. For removal I would focus on 1-2 drop spot remove like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile and some enchantment based remove to get ride of things like Ghostly Prison. Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring comes to mind. Darksteel Mutation is a good way to cripple someone's Commander. Four mana creature wipes are good as well Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation I would include maybe 2 of the higher costed wipes like Austere Command or Merciless Eviction.
Necropotence is a good way to keep your hand loaded with ammo for Kaalia. Quicksilver Amulet can be a back up plan as well as your creatures are going to be fairly expensive to hard cast. Amulet of Vigor is beautiful with Kaalia as it lets you untap all the creature you cheat in with her and lets you run the bounce lands with out as much draw back.
Spells and enchantments that give you extra combat phases are good too.. Savage Beating is one I like for Kaalia.

Hey, this looks like a great deck! I really like Neheb, the Eternal as a commander. +1!
The combo-potential between Neheb, the Eternal and cards like Fury of the Horde is just over 9000!!! The mana you generate with him stacks up with every extra combat step. So why don't you also play Relentless Assault and Seize the Day? World at War does only work in the first postcombat mainphase but would still be nice. Savage Beating can only be cast in the combat phase, so you cannot use the mana from Neheb, the Eternal to cast it. Maybe it should leave therefore.
Another idea would be to include cards that give your commander flying, so that he won't get killed by cards like Molten Disaster anymore. You could include Fleetfeather Sandals or Akroma's Memorial. This way you could also play Earthquake in your deck. If you manage to give him horsemanship, you could also include Rolling Earthquake ;).

Are you sick of all these tribal elf decks? I am, but there's this old Lorwyn deck of mine that's asking to be completed. I replaced black with red and put Radha, Heir to Keld + some red instants (notably, Savage Beating) + In the Web of War in order to make a sort of elf "berserked-warrior" deck [continues in the deck description]:
Thanks for your feedback!

I understand. I would run a few more dinosaurs. In my deck I run 27 dinosaurs. I don't run any of the "old" dinosaurs, I just run 27 dinosaurs from Ixalan. I don't really like any of the "old" dinosaurs that they changed to dinosaurs-beasts or dinosaur-lizards.
An artifact that I run in all my 3+ color decks is Chromatic Lantern. It really helps with color fixing. Herald’s Horn is a great tribal card. It makes the dinosaurs cheaper and lets you draw your dinosaurs.
I don't run a lot of top deck manipulation, but it's good with Gishath. I run Congregation at Dawn and Worldly Tutor. I would run Scroll Rack but I don't know what card to take out. To get cards out of your hand, cards like Hunting Grounds or Lurking Predators are great cards.

Your force is formidable, but there are plenty of Warriors you should look into for upgrades. A few particularly useful options include Archetype of Aggression, Bloodmark Mentor, Heartlash Cinder, Neheb, the Eternal, Ogre Battledriver, Paragon of Fierce Defiance, and Vengeful Firebrand.
You seem to want to attack a lot, so why not more than once a turn? Combat Celebrant, Savage Beating, World at War or, my personal favorite, Aggravated Assault are all great tech to keep the beats going.
Why stop at just hitting more though? Red offers plenty of way to apply even more damage every time you hit something. Try out Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and especially Gratuitous Violence for extra pain.
Other than those, all I can think of that you may want are some basic staples in Red. Blasphemous Act and Chaos Warp are the best removal you can pack in this color. Mana doublers like Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Might and Gauntlet of Power will help you out a ton. Other useful tech such as Insurrection, Shared Animosity and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle can give you the extra boost your deck might want.
Granted, not all of these are cheap, but just keep them in mind for long-term goals. Mono-Red is tough to play well in this format, so you'll need plenty of help to attain victory. Good luck!
