Akroan Horse seems...like it could be something better. Cards like Verdant Force and Tendershoot Dryad would do better, and Verdant Embrace enchants another creature to do the same. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is another one that could probably benefit from your current build, since you're running a lot of creatures. Kher Keep could be a fun land for you to run.
Evolutionary Leap would be a good sac outlet for you to run, and you could probably use a few more. Viscera Seer should be in the main deck. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed could produce you tokens under the right circumstance, and also provides sac and card draw. Krav, the Unredeemed works similarly to your other devour creatures, and will draw you double cards with Korvold on the battlefield. Vampiric Rites is another sac and draw outlet.
Other cuts I'd recommend: Ramunap Excavator and Crucible of Worlds (better for lands-matters themes), Chancellor of the Forge (high CMC, and to boot is tough to cast), and possibly Breeding Pit (tying up each turn might prove to be a pain in the ass).
Hope that helps!

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...
Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris
Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy
Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons
Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion
Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!
Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus
King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas
That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!

Akroan Horse is basically WotC's tip of a hat to the Trojan war. Chained to the Rocks sounds a lot like the story of Perseues's wife Andromeda. Maybe im just blind, but I don't see a Minotaur in here. Mogis, God of Slaughter is the biggest, baddest cow i can think of. Breaching Hippocamp is a hippocampus. I don't really know how much more i can say about that.
I love that you are making these theme decks, and that they function pretty well as actual decks too! Keep up the good work.

This is cool, not a commander I've played, +1. I always thought her ability was kind of weird, but in this environment, it works! Also lol communism.

Hiya!! Looking good so far! one of the trickiest thing with a deck like this is balancing the chaos/ group slug nature of red/black with the politics that Xantcha wants to direct.
I think Akroan Horse is perfect for you. and also Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , these two cards are great for getting other people at the table to join your side, or at least reconsider attacking you. Havoc Festival is also a must. Even Torgaar, Famine Incarnate would fit too. Vial Smasher the Fierce helps sow those seeds of Chaos as well.
I think political Rakdos is one of the coolest archetypes, and this deck seems like it's got the potential! Keep at it! How has it been to play so far?

I like Hunted Lammasu best of those options. Akroan Horse is good, but takes time to really earn itself, and there's a lot of artifact hate, from Kolaghan's Command to Abrade .1 horror is a lot easier to deal with than 5 goblins, though, yeah. I I should have looked through the hunted cycle again. I went down from 3 to 2 phantasms for that reason, 5 creatures being hard to keep under control.
I'll take out the time ravelers, but I'm not sure what I'll replace it with. If I end up needing more reliable creature presence on the opposite side of the board, I could add more Hunted Lammasu , but Niblis of Frost is also good, and I like the ability to make an Opt a free activated ability from Quiet Contemplation . Against aggro, lifelink would be helpful, so maybe Ojutai Exemplars instead of the niblis of frost?
As for having a way to permanently shut creatures down, that kind of goes against the aesthetic. The hope is that I'll be able to net more value out of it than my oppinent will with Verity Circle . Not all games will have verity circle out though, I know.
Gideon is a way to deal with tapped creatures, but he's a 1-of. Should I bump that number up, or go with a card like Swift Reckoning ?

I think you need some way to permanently deal with creatures. In modern, there are some creatures that you can't just let a stay on the board for extended periods of time, like Dark Confidant .
