Also War Cadence can just be an instant win on an alpha.

Some suggestions:

I would replace the red Archetype with Anger. It's already not an Orc, but the Archetype can be removed and you lose the effect. Anger gets removed and you keep the effect until someone brings graveyard hate.

Chromatic Lantern for Mardu Banner? Gives you any color but fixes your lands, too? I always run Lantern when I have more than 2 colors and in some 2 color decks, too.

You have a lower Mana curve, so you may be able to replace two lands with more cards.

I think Hatred and Ride Down are somewhat weak cards. Maybe War Cadence and In the Web of War? WC gives you a repeatable "can't be blocked" effect and ITWOW is a non-creature version of Ogre Battledriver.

With so many dash effects, maybe take out one of the weaker Orcs for Purphoros, God of the Forge? I could see Orcs worshipping the Red God and that 2 damage per creature entering the battlefield will really add up.

Some overall "good stuff" cards for combat strikes in these colors:

Neheb, the Eternal with Aggravated Assault can potentially go infinite with combat steps.Conqueror's Flail gives Zurgo a huge boost AND helps you against enemy spells during your turn.

Teleportal, Magmatic Chasm, Falter, Mark for Death, Seismic Stomp, and Tectonic Rift all muddle up your opponent's non-fliers. All star Bedlam could make or break the game, a more one-sided option is Goblin War Drums, Raging River, and War Cadence.

Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Cover of Darkness, Metallic Mimic, and Vanquisher's Banner all help out your chosen creature type well.

Look into some shroud and hexproof options, as you won't be targeting your creatures with anything, so making sure they don't get removed is important.

Break Through the Line - awesome if you're swinging with weenies

Filth - allstar (especially with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth)

Bedlam - your crazy option

Thassa, God of the Sea - dump mana

War Cadence - dump even more mana

Hmm... I like War Cadence, and I will be transferring Akroma's Memorial over from my Neheb, the Worthy deck, even though its cmc is higher than I would like. I do use Chaosphere as well.

I'm assuming you're open to non blue stuff, since it's an EDH deck with Beckett at the helm. War Cadence I think would do the trick well. Teleportal is a short term option too.

I'm doing something similar. Some cards I've added are War Tax for pirate flavor, and War Cadence to push pirates through. Curse of Opulence for flavor and mana ramp. Mass Mutiny (if only there was a piratey art) and Treasure Trove are some more flavor wins.
