Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.
Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.
Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.
Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.
Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound
Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver
Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie
General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

Nice deck (+1), love the Boros theme here. Have you considered some creatures with built in battalion enabling; i.e. Hanweir Garrison, Hero of Bladehold, Leonin Warleader, Skyknight Vanguard, or Basri Ket (not a creature, but the same idea). Also Ilharg, the Raze-Boar seems like he would fit nicely here. Hope this helps.

For human tribal, Jirina or Trynn/Silvar are probably better, but Alena/Ravos could be pretty good for a different concept. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is a solid alternate to Alena, and is much cheaper now that commander legends is out, so unless you have a need for that red mana, he's worth considering.
For mana, you could add more mana rocks, but it doesn't look that bad other than lots of lands come into play tapped. I tend to run basics over many tapped lands.

Also, I have noticed that there aren't too many ways of triggering Avacyn's flip effect. I do see that there is Selfless Spirit and you could do something with the tokens gained from Hanweir Garrison, but other than that I don't really see many non-Angel creatures dying.
If you really don't care about getting Avacyn's effect off, then ignore this comment.
Heres my Voltron deck that does somewhat the same thing as this deck except it has more of a focus on equipping Avacyn and wrecking everything. Avacyn, the Commander

I'd definitely cut Temple, this deck seems too aggressive for it to be worthwhile. If you really want double-mana lands, try
Ancient Tomb if you have cash
Balduvian Trading Post(although it's really not a double mana land....)
Other than that, maybe try going heavier into the Goblin theme. There are a lot of goblin token generators, and Goblin synergy is often better than straight token synergy.
Additionally, lots of goblin synergy turns Shared Animosity into a win con. With Animosity or Marton, Breath of Fury becomes a straight win condition with enough tokens. Just slap it on your tokens and they'll get bigger with each swing.

How many devil tokens does Zurzoth, Chaos Rider usually end up making for you? Does Hanweir Garrison usually get through enough to consistently make tokens? Are Past in Flames and Shreds of Sanity usually dead draws for you? Do you usually find that you have enough mana to grind out some cards with Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner? What are your thoughts on 0-cost creatures like Kobolds of Kher Keep? What does Goblin Matron usually tutor for? Does Krenko, Mob Boss usually survive long enough to tap? Is Empty the Warrens usually better than Beetleback Chief? Do either of the Nehebs usually end up connecting?

Massacar - I wouldn't mind having a 60% competitive deck or higher. So somewhat able to go toe-to-toe with top tier decks. Ask for Hanweir Garrison, I would add it BUT I need the human tokens, not the eldrazi tokens. My "Devourers" need humans. That was a fun little sub-theme I wanted.
