Creature — Human Warrior
Whenever Flamerush Rider attacks, create a token that's tapped and attacking that is a copy of another target attacking creature. Exile the token at end of combat.
Dash (You may cast this spell for its dash cost. If you do, this gains haste, and is returned from the battlefield to this creature's owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.)

I've been brewing and playing Goro-Goro and Satoru recently, they're a lot of fun. Have you had a chance to play this deck irl yet, or still play testing?
I think you're pretty light on the mana department, between a low land count and not much ramp beyond Sol Ring and Ragavan. I get that a lot of your creatures are small and fast, but you could probably cut some to open up some slots for land and ramp.
Aside from that, I'd recommend checking out some of the following creatures with Dash, or "pseudo-Dash":
Death-Greeter's Champion - The Backup 1 will grant another creature Double Strike. Especially with the many small, fast, & evasive creatures you currently have in the list, this could be gas. With the way G-G&S is worded, combat damage from Double Strike will net you 2 Dragon Spirit tokens.
Shatterskull Charger - Just never pay the Kicker cost lol.
Archwing Dragon - Doesn't have Dash, but it's a beefier body that can get replayed.
Flamerush Rider - Repeatable means of making a hasty token copy of something on your board.
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury - G-G&S want to crank out Dragon Spirit tokens, & Kolaghan anthems up your team based on the number of attacking dragons you control.
Some other stuff that can work in the deck:
Stubborn Denial - The Ferocious clause should be fairly easy to pull of in a deck that is pumping out Dragon Spirit tokens.
Flamewake Phoenix - Self-recurring hasty & evasive body as long as you're hitting that Ferocious clause.
Cursed Mirror - ETBs as a copy of any creature around the battlefield, and has Haste on top of that. Excellent mana rock for this deck.
I hope these suggestions are helpful. Best of luck with your brewing.

The Jeskai version of Kamiz, Obscura Oculus. I agree with you, human tribal is the wrong direction. Value off unblockability is the way to go. Infect/toxic if you want to be evil :)
Blinding Angel is epic. Glad to see this old rare in your list. Auto include no matter which strategy you chose for Aragon.
Marton Stromgald speeds up the aggro clock similar to infect/toxic.
Battle Angels of Tyr deep value.
Cephalid Constable really fits the theme.
Orcish Squatters haha
Graceful Antelope the haha continues

The recent Aurelia Multiverse Legends reprint is such a huge benefit to budget decks. I know your overall budget is $75, but do you have a budget per card? I have a few suggestions within budget that I think could push your deck a little more without breaking the bank:
I think you can probably cut Heiko Yamazaki, the General and Raiyuu, Storm's Edge you currently have 5 Warriors & 3 Samurai in deck. From playing Isshin extensively this past year, you definitely want to be attacking with more than one creature per combat haha. Solo attacking usually only happens in early game or after recovering from board wipes.
Since you already have Duke Ulder Ravengard and Hammers of Moradin, you could lean a bit more into Myriad. Hammers of Moradin is one of my favorite cards in my list, and usually punches above its weight. Some other Myriad creatures you could include are Genasi Enforcers and Elturel Survivors.
To pair with Myriad and your creature token production in general, I'd recommend getting in some ETB damage effects like Corpse Knight, Impact Tremors, and/or Witty Roastmaster. This helps get some damage in "around" defenses, and softens up opponents even further for when your creatures connect.
I think Delina, Wild Mage could be an eventual swap/upgrade to Flamerush Rider. Yes, you can Dash out the Rider, but the copies that Delina makes are not Legendary, which can have a higher ceiling on doubling up those triggers you typically wouldn't be able to.
Karlach, Fury of Avernus could be a budget-ish (less than $10) swap for Raiyuu if you want another extra combat effect. Karlach doesn't even need to attack, she just checks if you are attacking.
Breena, the Demagogue or Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant could be potential swaps with Glint-Sleeve Siphoner. Both are a blast, and add some fun political wrinkles to games while helping you (and opponents) draw cards. They're high risk/high reward. Breena can help grow herself or your other threats, and Karazikar can help deflect aggro away with Goad.
Lastly, I'd recommend Gruesome Realization as a swap for Faithless Looting. Yes, Looting is cheap & has Flashback, but it isn't super helpful in this deck since you're not utilizing your graveyard as a resource. Gruesome Realization has helped me cut down other opposing creature token boards in a few games, or drawn me cards if I wasn't playing against those types of strats.
I hope these suggestions are helpful. Overall your deck has decent synergy, but I think a handful of the suggested swaps can get it a bit more honed in. Hope you have fun with Isshin, he's a blast.

shadow63 I forgot to mention your other comment. I've considered branching clone effects out into their own hub; like you said, half the time you're cloning your own cards. On the other hand, in my experience, it's not too unusual to clone an opponent's card even if you're not using a dedicated clone/theft strategy. Then the temporary token copies created by cards like Flamerush Rider, or effects like Soul Foundry or Mimic Vat, do those count as clone effects?

Anointed Procession's rules text says: "if the effect creating the tokens instructs you to do something with those tokens at a later time, like exiling them at the end of combat, you'll do that for all the tokens."
You make two token copies of Hostile Desert, which will be tapped lands (not creatures, but you can pay the cost to animate them too. Since they enter as lands, they won't be attacking)
Those two token copies of lands will trigger Hazezon, Anointed Procession gives you 2x2 warriors per land, so 8 Sand Warriors total.
At the end of combat, you'll have to exile your two tapped land token copies.

Well as an example, Flamerush Rider would make a token copy of it if both he and your land attack.
The token triggers Hazoren to make two more Sand Warriors.
And your doubling enchantments will also double those Sand Warriors, too.
So you'd land 2x Desert creatures and 8x Sand Warriors (4 for each).
When the Desert token is exiled, you retain the copied token and all 8 Sand Warriors. And because that Desert token is a copy of the original, which is still a land by its own decree, it means you now have land tokens in play.
Admittedly you're going into full blown Timmy territory here, but that's where all the fun's at ;)

Sorry, some last minute thoughts:
