I think, since it's a tribal, you should definitely add Cavern of Souls

Some other good lands could be: Marsh Flats, Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, Sacred Foundry, Luxury Suite (or, if you have money, Plateau, Badlands, Scrubland), Winding Canyons, Maze of Ith, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Bojuka Bog, Nephalia Academy, Slayers' Stronghold, Command Beacon, Arcane Lighthouse

If you want some combo in your deck you could add Exquisite Blood (goes in combo with Sanguine Bond) and Dark Depths, that goes in combo with Vampire Hexmage)

How often does urza tron become relevant? would those slots be better served with different utility lands like say Hall of the Bandit Lord, Hanweir Battlements, and Slayers' Stronghold, more ways to give a kaalia haste seems a bit more useful than the chance for a late game extra mana.

And your thoughts on using Master of Cruelties, or similarly, Rakdos the Defiler as the one hit kill an opponent? I know some groups don't like those wincons but iona usually gets the same amount of hate so I figured I'd bring those two up.

And have you thoughts of Liliana Vess and Dark Petition as other strong tutors.

I also usually suggest more lands in a commander deck, but here I see land tax and top and plenty of ways to tutor them so sounds good (Quicksilver Amulet can also act as a kaalia #2). Here I link my kaalia which has ran into quite a few multiplayer playgroups (so some of the card choices are to survive more than one opponent's hate or to not draw "kill him first" rules) Heavenly Rakdos

Hey, well constructed budget Commander deck. I'm confused though the main deck here is low budget, but the maybeboard is not? In fact the small amount of cards in the maybeboard are worth more than the entire main deck? If you want to play voltron consider a lot more equipments and cards that give bonuses to equipment? Voltron is a good secondary strategy with the main strategy of having many attack phases with Aurelia.

Consider these budget cards for more voltron (in no order):

An alternative for the very expensive price Swords (Sword of Feast of Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, etc) are the three less expensive price Kaldra equipments. Obviously these are not as good as the Swords, but they're still powerful equipments and can get all three for less than half the price of one Sword. When you get all three into play they can combine to make a 4/4 creature and attach all three Kaldra equipments to it.

For the manabase consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Why run General Tazri as your Commander? You've only got a small handful of cards that aren't mono white. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight or Aurelia, the Warleader still allow you to splash the red you have in here and then you'd only need to cut two cards.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty which you could easily replace with Swords to Plowshares. That would give you spot removal, in addition to being another good target for your Isochron Scepter, on that note, you might want to consider replacing Silence with Orim's Chant. Slayers' Stronghold or Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion are both good swaps for Vault of the Archangel

Other swaps to consider Always Watching in place of Serra's Blessing and check out True Conviction in place of Noble Purpose

Big think I took from trying to get my devour decks going- haste. Haste is your friend- It doesn't matter if you are jamming a Hall of the Bandit Lord Slayers' Stronghold or Hanweir Battlements, getting a hit that big in is amazing, especially followed by Fling. The new Thud and old Pandemonium might push this into a neat mono-red archetype where you just have three goblins then drop twenty damage in a turn.

The traditional options are trample/double strike/lifelink etc enablers to soak up mana and let your titans end the game. Kessig Wolf Run is the biggest, paired with Slayers' Stronghold for a 'drop titan, fetch slayers, gain haste, attack, fetch kessig, spend the rest of your mana' turn. Vault of the Archangel also appears surprisingly regluarly.

Gavony Township is used in a lot of 'go wide' lists. Westvale Abbey  Flip has appeared a lot recently.

Other than that, its Tolaria West/bounceland for Summoner's Pact.
