What's up buddy? I would appreciate your help evaluating my deck commander for Iroas, god of Victory! What do you think? Would you help me?

First thing you should do is add four lands to the deck to make it EDH legal.

Descend upon the Sinful: don't see how this helps you with 30 creatures in the mainboard.

Consulate Crackdown: I find it too narrow. It doesn't have flash, so when you need it most, it could be too late. Spot removal is typical better.

Paraselene: Like Consulate Crackdown, too narrow in its use.

Captain Sisay: You only have 10 total legend cards in the deck. I think you can find better cards for the theme you are going for.

Before I suggest cards and/or replacements, what is your budget for the deck?

I like the curve you have going with the deck. That can be tough at times to keep down. I have to say, the deck works pretty good when playtesting. If you wish to possibly work with even more hatebears, I'd suggest cards like:

Throne of the God-Pharaoh: Helps you knock even more life off of the opponent at the cost of only 2 mana.

Mother of Runes: helps protect your commander and is just helpful in creature-based decks.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben: slow your opponents down more than you, since you are running 35 creatures.

Aven Mindcensor: slows down ramp and combo decks, limiting there search power.

Linvala, Keeper of Silence: still relatively cheap compared to its once $50 price tag.

Aura of Silence: Removal and slows down decks that want to get there enchantments and artifacts out quick.

Swords to Plowshares: Can never have enough removal in a deck. life gain for your opponent isn't that big of a deal with your strength being combat.

Return to Dust: the best artifact/enchantment removal spell in magic, behind Krosan Grip. Yes, it is 4 mana, but you get 2 hits, if done during your main phase. #Valuecity

Ramp:

Thran Dynamo: Worth the investment in a mono or dual color deck. It just helps you get ahead and allows you to play spells quicker.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx: Speaks for itself.

Sword of the Animist: Boros has basically no ramp. This equipment works well in a deck like this one.

Suggestions to remove:

Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran: seems slow and redundant to me. i think your commander granting melee and neutering damage to your board is more than enough. The pump is nice, but I feel is too narrow.

Call for Unity: Too narrow. Cathars' Crusade is better and enough good stuff to work with.

Breath of Fury: Works well with Angel of Jubilation, but that is too situational. If you want another creature with extra combat abilities, use Scourge of the Throne.

Gideon, Martial Paragon: This is one of the better planeswalker deck planeswalkers'. I think for his cost, his abilities are weak on an empty board.

Legion's Initiative: I feel like this offers protection, but also allows your opponent to plan around it once the creatures re-enter during your next combat.

Honored Crop-Captain: you don't want to completely rely on combat even with your colors being Boros.

Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker: an average planewalker with a decent removal. I feel you can do better at 5 mana.

Stone Quarry: One less tapped land.
