Taking out slow, high cost creatures that can be good if left to sit, but otherwise waste my entire turn doing nothing.
Putting in more attack trigger things (you know, the deck theme).

Oops, yeah I definitely missed Aurelia. It happens lol.
If you want another Extra Combat effect, I think Karlach can def replace Raiyuu for a couple of reasons:
Karlach triggers when you attack, and she doesn't need to be the one attacking.
Raiyuu triggers when you attack solo with a Warrior or Samurai. You currently have about 2 Warriors in the deck, and 3 Samurai, including Isshin. From having played Isshin for the past year, you typically want to swing with more than one creature each combat.
I've had a lot of fun with Professional Face-Breaker, which rewards you for going wide & playing aggro. She also pairs nicely with Captain Lannery Storm and any other Treasure production you might have in the 99, since Face-Breaker can turn your treasures into impulse draw.
Lastly, I'd recommend adding stuff like Unbreakable Formation and Clever Concealment as a means of protecting your board at instant speed. Being able to protect your board and maintain aggro momentum is crucial to keeping Isshin chugging along and swinging.

Since you mentioned you're pretty on a budget, most of these (at least according to my knowledge) are at or under a dollar.

Huge update! Included 8 extra legendary creatures and a total of 16 extra legendary permanents. Thanks a lot again for your help awesomedude20 you've inspired me a lot. Now let's hope the mailman arrives soon so I can test this Dihada 2.0!
Dangerwillrobinson79 apologies for the late reply. It must have been one or more episodes from either The Command Zone or EDHRecast because I actually follow only those two. It's a topic that pops up every now and then in several episodes. Bottom line is to just add more instants and creatures with activitated abilities to be more part of the game during other players' turn. For example, replace a basic Swamp for a Castle Locthwain. To have the castle enter untapped shouldn't be too hard and if ever you don't have to spend all your mana it could draw you a card. Simple example, but big benefit.
Funny is that with this huge update of the deck I've removed several instants and replaced it for other cardtypes. For example Generous Gift was cut for Loran of the Third Path and Swords to Plowshares had to make room for Drakuseth, Maw of Flames. So I guess I still need lessons in adding more instants -.-'
I've also checked your Di-Had-a'nuf deck and I like how it's really quite a different take on her but awesome nevertheless! I especially like your Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor and Vial Smasher the Fierce. Those might find their way into my Dihada aswell one day! Thank you

Mattio38 Hey, thanks for stopping by yourself haha!
I've played this a handful of times with my group, and it's always at LEAST been a major threat, with her ability to toss out huge threats at a moment's notice. Magda is genuinely an all-star lol, the ability to fetch Avacyn's Memorial out of the deck is insane. Especially considering you can swing Magda safely, since the fetched Memorial will make her indestructible lol. Allowing you to continue fetching big nasties (Bladewing, Deathless Tyrant, Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, Oros, the Avenger, and Piru, the Volatile are all excellent targets, with Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge as prooobably your last choice) turn after turn. Luxior, Giada's Gift is another great choice.
But honestly? I usually hate infinite combos, so I usually try to avoid tossing those in as wincons, so this deck usually just wins by beating face better than anyone else. There's a good amount of fliers too, which are both great at protecting Dihada, as well as getting in to damage people, and any winning boards just... facilitate keeping your board around to continue doing that haha. The boardwipe creatures are especially good at keeping everyone else's board in check, since all of them deal with most go-wide strategies pretty immediately, as well as smaller utility creatures and whatnot, paired with lifelink to boot, it gets kinda funny.
Lets you target Agrus with Dihada's +2, then you pay the , which copies her +2 for every one of your legendary creatures, and with Myrel out, your opponents don't have too many common options to deal with your board since USUALLY your board is quite vulnerable from your upkeep to your main phase 1. But Myrel stops people from doing anything during that point, so you can basically keep your Dihada +2 going safely for your entire creaturebase, letting you swing relentlessly and gain a ton of life, all while keeping Dihada safe behind the fliers and big bodies etc. etc.
Also Primevals' Glorious Rebirth won me a game hilariously hard once. A Lazav player milled like 3/4s of my library. Got to my turn. Topdecked Primeval. Put basically every legendary card in my deck straight onto the field, lands included. Generally speaking, I prefer to let all 4 cards go to the grave with Dihada's -3, since the 4 treasures is REALLY strong, but if I ever mill Primeval, you bet I'm grabbing that lol.
As for your recommendations, yeah Blasphemous Act is kinda just never a bad idea lol. I might toss it in, but I find I've been able to get by using Piru, Oros, or Ashling in a similar way. The deck makes enough mana to make it functional haha, plus it leans more into the legendary tribal aspect, which I enjoy. Sheoldred is definitely a great include, I'm not really sure why I didn't include her other than maaaaybe being a massive hate magnet. I would argue that Rodolf is even better in the deck with a little extra legwork involved, but Rodolf, for some strange reason, doesn't attract as many bad intentions haha
Definitely not a bad idea though, fits into my theme of "keep my things on the board", if I ever find a card underperforming I might just swap it out for her.

ok, I just play against my friend with the dragon deck and I think it might need some more mana producers or cheap fear.
His commander is Atarka, World Render, and here are some cards that I now know are in his deck: Foe-Razer Regent, Furnace Whelp, Rapacious Dragon, Atarka Monument, Frontier Siege, Vandalblast, Sweltering Suns, Talisman of Impulse, Akoum Hellkite, Harbinger of the Hunt, Dream Pillager, Sol Ring, Dragonmaster Outcast, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Savage Ventmaw, Dragonlord's Servant, Tyrant's Familiar, Thunderbreak Regent, and Drakuseth, Maw of Flames.

what the heck is a "tax and stax war"?
also, I think that I will replace Cast Down with No Mercy considering it will counter my friend's (possible) double strike ability Atarka, his Thunderbreak Regent, and his Drakuseth, Maw of Flames, or just any dragon that manages to hit me.
