On a sidenote, I imagine we'll get a un-blue (WBRG) commander somewhere in the future to combine all these forced combat monstrosities.
Also: The Oaths are a cycle? Didn't know that.
Regarding Karazikar, Bloodthirsty Blade is awesome, obviously. When building Thantis, I started with some combat tricks that either grant deathtouch or turn the attacker into a glass cannon (Auger Spree) to make multi-kills in every combat more frequent. Trumpet Blast maybe? Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats is great in attacky decks, and I imagine that Karazikar will include some party-relevant types by default without even trying. You could play into granting creatures to opponents, but that might lead too far. Disrupt Decorum is obvious, and I really like the new Hellish Rebuke.

Awesome looking deck! I have a Grixis version of this type deck. Goad is quickly becoming one of my favorite mechanics. Bloodthirsty Blade would make an awesome addition, it's great for getting peoples non combat creatures killed, or forcing them to attack with their big guys. Also the new modern masters just dropped Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant gives your opponents some incentive to attack each other and gives you some card draw. Also Maddening Imp is probably one of the best forced attack abilities since it destroys all creatures that don't attack.

I quite like the idea of stealing stuff with Molten Primordial and sacrificing them to Tooth and Claw . But it is kinda unfortunate that the stolen creatures can't attack (when copying the Primordial with Delina). Goblin Bombardment and Spawning Pit might be a good inclusion if you wanna lean more into that.

Ok, a forced combat deck in WB? Awesome!
Then, there are multiple useful Propaganda -like effects:
Orzhov Advokist is similar to Breena.
Finally, Crown of Doom is pretty cool for a little game of hot potatoe.

Deck looks fun and good so far! I like it. I have a comment to start. Tahngarth's ability works similarly to Kaalia of the Vast in the sense that there is no attack trigger, so for things like Bear Umbra the ability does not trigger when you give him to other players to attack, so it's really only useful on other creatures.
Interestingly enough, even if you kept him on an opponent's field for a full turn cycle, this actually is bad! Since they control Tahngarth, they will get the benefit, due to the card's wording. You only control the things attached to Tahngarth, so since Bear Umbra gives the ability to Tahngarth's text, the opponent would get to untap lands.
All this ^^^ was more just of interest rather than general advice.
Moving on, in your OTHER category. You have a LOT of incentives to get people to not attack you, too many in fact. I'll tell you which ones I think are best, but it's up to your personal preference which ones to cut. I think the Curse of Predation , Curse of Disturbance , Bloodthirsty Blade , Frenzied Saddlebrute , Disrupt Decorum , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Shiny Impetus , Xantcha, Sleeper Agent , and Goblin Spymaster are the best personally, as they are the most effective at goading.
I think Dimir House Guard is really not that great, and you have enough other tutors to get Tahngarth.
Cunning Rhetoric is a fabulous card for this deck (also in general, holy moly I'm glad I know about this card now). Your monarch cards might not be that great to have, but I think it's worth play-testing. I think it might make it hard for you, since you can't attack a person who is the monarch for fear that they will attack you, although this can be counteracted through goad cards.
Otherwise, I think this deck is pretty cool, and I approve of it.

Some artifacts in monored, that can be reasonably tutored with Goblin Engineer :
