Here's a my Boros Angel Tribal deck Gisela's Angel Tribe. A few cards I'd add would be Savage Beating because more combat, Swords to Plowshares probably the best piece of removal ever printed, Teferi's Protection as a panic button, The Immortal Sun because it the most overloaded card ever, any of the following for ramp Thaumatic Compass, Land Tax, Weathered Wayfarer, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, if games at your meta are going long Emeria, The Sky Ruin can be amazing. Thalia's Lancers is a 4/4 first striker that tutors a legendary card to your hand.

Or if you can play lots of creatures Try Savage Beating

Good start, I love these guys!

I like that you included Fling and Thud.

When I built these partners I ended up cutting most of the fat (the bad coin flip cards like Wirefly Hive for example).
Other cuts I'd recommend: Two-headed giant's wording doesn't work with your commanders (says heads/tails not "win"). Sorcerer's Strongbox is strictly worse than Tidings or... maybe perhaps Opportunity even in a coin flip deck. Crooked Scales is just wayyyy to mana hungry. Boompile will kill your commanders and maybe draw you a card. Ral Zarek will likely NEVER ult in multiplayer, but he's good if you put more high value rocks in your deck and can occasionally open the door for Okan. Creepy Doll eats up the 5 drop you'd rather use for either commander and usually doesn't get the chance to block.

Honestly you don't need to pack too much coin flip to make the deck work.
I'd focus on copying the effects to repeat coin-flipping for better value. You can even use cards like Strionic Resonator to copy coin flipping.
I highly recommend cards that provide Multiple combat phases for Okaun, Eye of Chaos such as Savage Beating, and Relentless Assault. If you go the multiple combat phases route, check out any card that also says "at the beginning of combat" like Loyal Drake so you can the most value out of your turns.

Savage Beating how about a 3rd combat step and/or double strike. The Immortal Sun is an amazing card in Boros. Weathered Wayfarer for some ramp. Thalia's Lancers is tutor on a solid body(note it say legendary card).

Skyshroud Elf are very good with firebreath effects especially Moonveil Dragon.

Also Savage Beating is a beast.

Cloudius on Xenagos and his hitmen

This deck is brutal and it probably explains why you're being targeted by your play group.

Here're some of my suggestions for your consideration:

Spellbinder when imprinted with Savage Beating means you can potentially take infinite combat steps and win the game there and then.

Sneak Attack fits the theme of your deck well as Xenagos' hitman came out of nowhere, charging into combat and dealing crazy damage.

Ramp wise, you can consider Mana Reflection as a redundancy for Zendikar Resurgent.

Defense of the Heart is a decent tutor too, fetching you 2 fatties at once.

I'd recommend Savage Beating it's a surprise win out of nowhere, I'd also recommend The Immortal Sun it's one of the most over loaded cards ever printed, maybe a Star Compass, I'd also recommend a Thaumatic Compass it will help to guarantee your lands and it will turn into protection from counter attacks.

Chandra, the Firebrand This card may be a sneaky good card for your deck. Chandra, the Firebrand + Savage Beating uses both modes. It also works well with most of your sorcery spells like Acidic Soil, Chandra's Ignition and Kaboom!.
