Disrupt Decorum Discussion

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.

Did you intend to skip Disrupt Decorum ?

I think all creatures having vigilance makes this a lot less appealing than you think. Combat math is less interesting if everything can attack and block every turn. It's part of the reason Elder Gargaroth is such a ridiculous card. Triggers on both attacking and blocking, combined with vigilance, so there's no cost, no decision about how to use the creature. Don't forget, your opponents' blockers will also never go away, they have vigilance too. It will lead to the biggest boardstalls, not the wildest combats.
Also, why do you untap all creatures during the second combat phase if everything has vigilance? This card would possibly be a combo piece for that extra untap, with stuff like Sylvan Awakening .
Remove the vigilance, and it's probably an interesting card. Debatably, the ability to Goad might need a little steeper cost, if you compare this repeatable ability to the one-shot spell Disrupt Decorum that resembles it most.

A creature that is goaded, must attack if able, and it must attack a different player than who goaded it if able.
Disrupt Decorum is not an old card, but it has brought me great fun ^^

I think that ways to increase your creature's power and give it trample could help too. Disrupt Decorum fits in perfectly if you don't mind it's price. Otherwise, Titanic Growth, Rancor, Barge In, and Crash Through are solid options. It could also be worth looking into making Marisi your commander for more consistent access to goad, but I'm not sure what you'd be able to replace black with. I really love the deck though!

Mind's Eye - I think Lithoforming and Exploration are both stronger cards in this deck.
Snow-Covered Mountainx1 - I will have to see how big the impact this has on my mulligans and draws. I've been able to more than double the amount of draw the deck had even a year ago, but I'm not sure if that is enough to cut the land count down any further.
I've decided against Lithoform Engine for now.
As always it feels impossible.
I am also considering adding Goblin Engineer at that point to capitalize on Lotus, Crucible of Worlds for the interaction with Nahiri's Lithoforming, and all the artifacts I am likely to get with Dockside Extortionist.

Okay, so I just thunk a thought. What if you force combats every turn, in order to get your creatures through without them being blocked, and then you just find ways to tap down your stuff that you don't want swinging? Turn the game into a super-aggro melee in the early game, so everyone is forced to swing with (and possibly lose) their set-up creatures. That's what red should be doing to win - make everyone else react and fight on your terms.
So, cards that can force combats: Angel's Trumpet, Avatar of Slaughter (Mogis approved), Bloodthirsty Blade, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Disrupt Decorum, Geode Rager, Goblin Diplomats, Goblin Spymaster, Grand Melee, The Akroan War, Trove of Temptation, Warmonger Hellkite, and of course, War's Toll.
