All creatures have haste.

Looking to fit in the latter two along with an Overwhelming Stampede

In that vein, I think you need more ways to exploit a big field in a single turn with Haste, which also makes your dorks go faster. You have access to Red, but only a couple ways to give Urtet Haste (and both are colorless to boot). Maybe a couple from this list will help: Samut, Tyrant Smasher, Alibou, Ancient Witness, Concordant Crossroads/Mass Hysteria, Hammer of Purphoros/Rhythm of the Wild, Nahiri's Resolve, Uncivil Unrest, and Winged Hive Tyrant.
(By the way, if you want to split it up into categories on TappedOut, do like this:)
# Category 1 Name 1x Card 1 Name (XYZ) 1x Card 2 Name (XYZ)
Great start, I'll keep thinking of more potential adds (Unwinding Clock?)

I think one easy swap that you could make that also potentially helps with the dilemma of adding in Chivalric Alliance is swapping either Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire or a basic Plains for Minas Tirith.
I've been okay so far at 35 lands. I can understand running Mass Hysteria for the mana efficiency, but giving your opponents' creatures haste runs the risk of benefiting other aggro strats, and activated tap abilities. Rising of the Day gives 17 of your 29 total creatures (including Isshin) that little additional buff.
My quick suggestions for cuts or swaps:
Swap either Brave the Sands or Fervent Charge for Flowering of the White Tree. Again, 17 of your 29 creatures get a couple decent buffs, and all your other creatures get a consistent +1/+1. Fervent Charge only buffs when you attack.
I think you can cut Revenge of Ravens for similarly stated reasons as Emberwilde Captain. Or, you could flat out swap with Marchesa's Decree if you really want to keep the effect, but still squeeze in another draw opportunity.
You can likely cut Vampiric Rites as you were thinking, especially if you end up adding Minas Tirith, which feels like a middle ground to Vampiric Rites & Chivalric Alliance in terms of getting the draw. Idk what land destruction is like in your meta, but Minas Tirith is also a bit more removal resistant.
Painful Truths can be a potential cut, or perhaps swap with Professional Face-Breaker. Face-Breaker is a combat damage trigger, but is still something you can benefit from since you want to go wide & hit face anyways.
Inquisitorial Rosette could be another cut. I've personally moved away from this card & Captain's Claws. I think they got phased out for additional creature slots. If you like it as a menace anthem, then Goblin War Drums is also an option. Ultimately up to you though.

Okay, this deck needs a little tuning. I got so caught up in honing the knife edge that this deck can be (and believe me, when it pops, it absolutely wrecks the table) that I made it a little hard to play. I love that the deck is low to the ground, but Crow-Umbra was right. I need more lands. I think my ideal number would be 35? 36? Unknown. but I get into so many situations where I can get out a few cards, but just get stalled at playing multiple cards per turn, or just don't draw lands and get killed because of it. So, I am very open to recommendations for cuts.
Here is what I want to fit into the deck:
- AT LEAST: 2 more lands (maybe 3?)
- One more piece of ramp (If it also supports some other part of Isshin, then all the better)
- One more haste enabler (cards I'm looking at for this slot include Mass Hysteria and Rising of the Day, but again, suggestions that include a haste enabler and ALSO contribute another piece to the Isshin gameplan could be ideal too)
So that is 4-5 cuts that would need to be made. And those cuts will definitely hurt, because I love each and every card that is currently in Isshin, but I want him to be able to consistently do his thing, rather than annihilate everyone only irregularly. Thanks for any feedback!

For global haste you can use Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads, Mass Hysteria, and Urabrask the Hidden who will also conveniently turn off other people's haste. Anger and Barbarian Class also give haste after more effort.
Ant Queen, Artifact Mutation, Battle Hymn, Circle of Dreams Druid, Dragon Broodmother, Pest Infestation, Scute Swarm, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Termagant Swarm are all useful if you can give haste to all of them.
Birds of Paradise is just the best mana dork.
You have green, so you might as well use the standard ramp package with Cultivate , Kodama's Reach, Explore , Farseek, , Rampant Growth, Three Visits and Nature's Lore. Probably ignore most mana rocks, because people are going to want to vandalblast you just because of the treasures.
For draw spells consider Scroll Rack, Garruk's Uprising, Elemental Bond, Soul's Majesty, Furious Rise, Rishkar's Expertise, Beast Whisperer, Shamanic Revelation, Disciple of Bolas, Pact of the Serpent, Painful Truths, Harmonize, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Damnable Pact, Commune with Lava, Lifeblood Hydra, or maybe Necropotence although the color restricion on necro is tough, treasures should take care of it.
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Flip, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer , The Reaver Cleaver , Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge , Ancient Copper Dragon , Old Gnawbone Ziatora, the Incinerator for more treasure makers. Pyrohemia and Pestilence could be fun with the extra mana. Awaken the Woods is an amazing x spell too, but wont appreciate the two aforementioned cards.
If you're using magda the deck will benefit from dragons and expensive artifacts. throw in Imperial Recruiter and Worldly Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and Demonic Tutor all go in your colors. so you can get her more consistently. Darksteel Forge and Gate to Phyrexia can be tutored into play with her for five treasure.
If you use dragons, you could add Dragonstorm, but you should carefully consider how many cheap spells you expect to be able to cast if you arent building specifically towards this card. Chatterstorm, Empty the Warrens, Yawgmoth's Will, Jeska's Will, Mana Geyser, and Manamorphose, Past in Flames are all good on their own and would add synergy.
Swashbuckler Extraordinaire is a very good payoff for using treasures if you dont use certain other nightmarish dragons like Atarka, World Render, Blast-Furnace Hellkite, Terror of Mount Velus, Thrakkus the Butcher

This a cool deck! I've been looking into building Marton Stromgald and seeing your deck gave me some ideas. Have you considered using Mass Hysteria and Bedlam in this deck? Seems like they could be pretty good.

Ok hear me out. Pull out all the legendaries, then add in Arcum Dagsson. Also add Jegantha, the Wellspring as your companion. The rework to companions (having to pay 3 to put from command zone to hand) means that while Jodah is out, when you cast Jegantha, you will always get Arcum. Arcum can sac an artifact mana dork (e.g. Ornithopter of Paradise, Bronze Walrus, Scuttlemutt, Opaline Unicorn, etc. there are many of them) to get Door to Nothingness.
Thanks to Jegantha's ability, you will reliably be ready to use the Door as soon as it touches the board, and since it came in via Arcum's ability the Door can't be countered. You can also use Arcum to fetch artifacts that copy the Door/Door ability (like Sculpting Steel, Rings of Brighthearth) or artifacts that return the Door from grave to hand (e.g. Protomatter Powder, Codex Shredder)).
The other slots I would fill with cheap ramp effects like Birds of Paradise and all the available mana-producing artifact creatures. Maybe also cheap haste effects like Mass Hysteria, Concordant Crossroads, Lightning Greaves, Crashing Drawbridge, etc. so you can use Jegantha and Arcum immediately. You wouldn't really need to worry about interaction because you could keep the Door unused until the opp's end step before your turn and use it to threaten death of whomever tries to disrupt your setup in the meantime. For example if an opponent casts Cyclonic Rift, just respond by activating the Door to get that fool out da game thereby fizzling the Rift.
