All creatures have vigilance.
At the end of each player's turn, tap all untapped creatures that player controls that didn't attack this turn. Angel's Trumpet deals damage to the player equal to the number of creatures tapped this way.
DreadKhan on thantis and the boys

I don't think Thantis should leave home without Rite of the Raging Storm, this way everyone has stuff to swing as your opponents, but nobody has extra vs you, but it also should work with Garruk's Uprising. Akroan Horse is another so-so source of bodies that get better with supporting buffs. I am always surprised at how much work War Cadence can do in a meta with lots of attacking, it can even play like a Stax effect if the board is pretty big, because you can turn any swing into an unblockable one at instant speed. Mask of Griselbrand is a pretty impressive equipment in practice, Flying is great evasion, Lifelink is a great ability on a large creature and that much card draw can change a game's outcome very easily.
If you're looking seriously at cards like Assassinate, I feel I should point out that it's a Sorcery and has targeting limitations. If you want to run sorcery speed removal then I strongly recommend Make an Example and Phyrexian Purge, both of those are quite a bit better. I think you could also look at Beast Within and Road / Ruin, both are very useful spells, offering versatility of effect.
Have you drawn Nikya in many games yet? I feel like with only 31 creatures in the 99 that you'll not want to cast him very often, it'll interfere with your other spells.
I'm not sure that Dragon Whelp is a very reliable Commander card, it's not that much less mana than a Shivan Dragon, and it's a much worse card. I would note that most people who play Shivan Dragon in Commander are playing it as a pet card, there are other better cards you could play. I think you could just play something like Avatar of Fury even, it's janky but it's very easy for it to cost 2 mana later game, or maybe Cavalier of Flame if you want something pricier.
Since Thantis can get pretty big, I suspect anything like Return of the Wildspeaker or Rishkar's Expertise would be pretty solid in here.
I'm not sure how much of a target Thantis ends up being, but Angel's Trumpet is a nice back up option that does something similar.
DreadKhan on Unlimited Fodder, Kardur the Doomscourge budget

Angel's Trumpet might do some work in here? It's a source of Vigilance that also does damage to decks that won't swing (and make them unable to block). Goblin Diplomats can also force them to swing, if you consistently have the better board this can win games easily. If you know people are going to attack and you want their board to survive (or you want yours to survive swinging) you can try War Cadence, this is a sneaky enchantment that's easy to underestimate since you can activate it during anyone's turn.
If you expect other people's stuff to die, there is Kothophed, Soul Hoarder that can draw a bunch of cards. This can be extra good if your meta is fairly spiky, as this draws off of any sacrifice effect your opponent's use... this can also kill you technically vs a treasure (or other infinite sacrifice based combo). Mask of Griselbrand is pretty good with decks that expect to lose creatures a lot while attacking, Lifelink and evasion are sweet, cards are even better I find, this card is amazing with Rite of the Raging Storm (as are Berserkers' Onslaught and Exquisite Blood actually, not sure if they're within your budget).
If people play lots of non-basic lands vs you then Dwarven Miner and Dwarven Blastminer are disturbingly strong. Volcanic Offering can also torch 2 lands and 2 creatures in many matches. If people avoid non-Basics then these are bad cards, so beware.
Really random, but if you expect your opponent's stuff to be dying, you can use Grave Betrayal to steal them, letting you swarm them the next turn.
If you tend to have tokens that aren't very impressive, Hell's Caretaker can turn one into any creature in your graveyard by tapping.
Crow-Umbra on Isshin, Two Heavens as One [Politic]

Oooo a Goad Isshin list. Glad to see some twists in addition to go-wide Isshin lists.
There's plenty of cool tech out there for Isshin. I have a few things for you to consider for your theme:
Mercadia's Downfall - Combat trick for yourself, or use it on your opponents' Goaded stuff.
Vengeful Ancestor - A little surprised you didn't have this one in list already.
Xantcha, Sleeper Agent - Not budget, but guarantees attacks against opponents & can draw cards/punish outlet for its controller.
Keldon Twilight, Angel's Trumpet - Forced combat enablers.
There's def more forced combat & Monarch stuff out there if you're interested. Monarch & Initiative ( White Plume Adventurer) could also be a fun way to introduce politics & get people to swing at each other.
My playgroup has a house rule where every game has Monarch in it by end of turn 3 by default. It's made our games much more dynamic & interactive, also adds a big political element to negotiating swings to get Monarch.

Nice! I also built a low-hug phelddagrif deck (you can check it out here if you want).
These wincons might interest you: Gideon, Champion of Justice, Angel's Trumpet, Suture Priest, Dingus Staff, Mantle of Leadership
Here are some other cards that perform well: Keep Watch, Borrowing 100,000 Arrows, Theft of Dreams, Jaheira's Respite, Sawtusk Demolisher, Authority of the Consuls

You might enjoy Agitator Ant, it is pretty funny in chaos decks, as is Angel's Trumpet. It's a weird card, but War Cadence is really useful to make blocking impossible. There is also War Tax, which is the opposite yet also very fun. If you aren't big on combos, Protection Racket can either give you non-lands or deal damage, extra juicy with Exquisite Blood obviously. He's clunky now, but Kaervek the Merciless deals a heap of damage, both him and Vial are good with Mask of Griselbrand, as is Rite of the Raging Storm.
Not quite sure it fits, but Fatespinner does a fair bit of work, adding a substantial cost to attacking for your opponents while doing nothing to you.

Angel's Trumpet may force your opponents into bad trades once you get some of your bigger baddies out, and give you the benefit of keeping them untapped. Not game-breaking, but could be fun.

Max_Hammer Obeka doesn't work with Goatnapper/Act of Treason effects, since they end at the end of the turn. The end of the turn still happens with Obeka.
The best cards to use with Obeka are the ones that mess you up on your end step. Alchemist's Gambit, Angel's Trumpet errata, Avaricious Dragon, etc.

Black Market Connections can do a lot of work for a 3 drop, and you've got access to White for random life gain to make it less of a problem. It's clunky but Axis of Mortality is a really fun/interesting card that can make it an asset to pay life, and you can also use it to just switch two opponent's life totals if yours is the highest. If you want something lower to the ground, there are also the Soul Sisters, Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, or Lunarch Veteran Flip. One or two of those coming out early can mean a ton of life if nobody is wiping.
I think Welcoming Vampire might work, but you probably want to have tokens enter on other people's turns, not sure if you can pull that off readily. There is also Bennie Bracks, Zoologist, which doesn't care what kind of token you're making and can be cheap to cast, he's really nice with Pitiless Plunderer and a sac outlet or Smothering Tithe.
Not sure if you get walled very often, but if you're usually going wide Angel's Trumpet can create a ton of chaos for unprepared decks.
