Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Discussion

I really like your idea here! Though expensive, here are some lands that might be interesting to consider: Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Shizo, Death's Storehouse (there are two more in the cycle but I think those 3 are the most relevant here).

I like the list, but I'll echo that tymaret feels out of place here. Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar is a neat option if you run more discard, but since you only have brutality, its not a swap for tymeret. I think I'd just run Valentin, Dean of the Vein Flip.
Its also worth considering Shizo, Death's Storehouse / Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep if you have room in your manabase - they'll provide coloured mana where the factory won't, and play nice with the legends- shizo on ragavan is really good.

1x Tangle Wire
1x Bolt Bend Is this ever reduced for your commander?
1x Taurean Mauler It's okay but sort of unnecessary. Can have an artifact dwarf instead.
1x Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Useless in your deck, replace with a 1 mana dwarf.
1x By Force
1x Wheel of Misfortune Really unreliable, especially if all 4 players still playing.
1x Akroma's Memorial You shouldn't win by combat.
1x Illusionist's Bracers One use of commander should be more than enough to win.
1x Dwarven Thaumaturgist His effect is irrelevent.
1x Mycosynth Lattice Mana fixing for opponents, how generous.
1x Rings of Brighthearth see Illusionist's Bracers above
1x Clock of Omens Primary wincon, and at instant speed.
1x Dwarven Grunt 1 mana dwarves
1x Dwarven Scorcher 1 mana dwarves
1x Dwarven Trader 1 mana dwarves
1x Enslaved Dwarf 1 mana dwarves
1x Liberated Dwarf 1 mana dwarves
1x Proteus Machine Artifact dwarf, slotted for consistency. Unnecessary really, can be replaced with whatever.
1x Feldon of the Third Path Can create an artifact dwarf or maybe pull out a dragon that was discarded/played if game went too long.
1x Possessed Portal Use if winning and clock of omens has been dealt with or you don't have an artifact dwarf.
1x Daretti, Scrap Savant Good for rummaging or returning an artifact, since you always have a treasure in play. Can be replaced with good card draw.
1x Mystic Forge 1/4 of deck is artifacts. Can also fix dead draws to a certain extent. Can be replaced with good card draw.
1x Herald's Horn Call dwarves every time. Can be replaced with good card draw.
1x Final Fortune Can win out of nowhere. Use only if you are certain you can win. Be careful, highly recommended only if opponents appear tapped out.
Other worthy mentions I don't feel like figuring out how to slot in right now:
Outpost Siege Solid red card draw.
Commune with Lava Playable red card advantage.
Maze of Ith Use this as a spell slot, not a land slot. Can untap your own dwarves, or be used defensively.
Scrying Sheets all your lands are snow for whatever reason, so could be okay if you have nothing else to cast in a turn.
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with all these mountains, why not?
Command Beacon In case people kill your 1 toughness commander too many times.
Darksteel Citadel More artifacts. ONLY PUT IF you don't have color problems.
Flamekin Village Not sure if haste is important enough, but something to consider.
Inventors' Fair gives you health, but more importantly can tutor an artifact.
Madblind Mountain If you end up with a lot of top deck shenanigans.
Labyrinth of Skophos If you're being attacked.
Kher Keep Chump blockers.
Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Might help seem more intimidating early game?
Sequestered Stash Can return an artifact to your DECK, and then commander can grab it.
Sea Gate Wreckage If you run out of cards and have colorless mana sources.
Quicksand Can dissuade attackers
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Big mana
Myriad Landscape Ramp
Mouth of Ronom If you still have too many snow lands.

Hey! I love this, I started my main commander deck as a samurai tribal with Queen Marchesa As the commander, too! As far as Creatures go, adding Masako the Humorless Or Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker can help with some defense control. If you want to keep your creatures dense with samurai, I would suggest Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo. If you want a Shapeshifter, I would replace your Taurean Mauler with a Mirror Entity. For enchantments and artifacts, I would suggest Ghostly Prison for defense purposes, and Coat of Arms for tribal synergy. When playing commander, I always try to run some neat lands in order to make sure I use up my card space efficiently. I would suggest taking out some basic lands and adding Eiganjo Castle , Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep , And Shizo, Death's Storehouse. These lands tap for colored mana, don't come in tapped, and give you an extra little something. Those lands have helped me win a few stressful games, and are a few of my favorite cards. Feel free to check out my samurai standard deck, or my Queen Marchesa commander deck for more ideas!! Good luck!!

Kresh can be built with much more synergy in mind if you like. Take a look at cards like Rollick of Abandon, Chandra's Ignition, Spitebellows, Fleshbag Marauder or Temur Battle Rage to make him more powerful. I'd probably run cards like Lightning Greaves to protect him, and Garruk's Uprising or Rancor to provide trample.
I don't like playing color-intensive cards like Necropotence, Pestilence, Pyrohemia and War Elemental with the amount of mana fixing you have, and Nissa's Pilgrimage or Scorched Ruins don't help you with red or black mana at all. This deck could use a Chromatic Lantern though.
Since you're hardly drawing lots of cards, Reliquary Tower does way more harm to your mana than it's worth. I'd definitely replace that. Maybe colored utility lands like Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep or Castle Garenbrig could fill that spot.
Finally, your deck might even be better off with a different commander altogether. Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Korvold, Fae-Cursed King maybe?

Ash Zealot, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Battle Brawler, Bloodmark Mentor, Goblin Spymaster, Grim Initiate, Kruin Outlaw Flip, Neheb, the Worthy, No-Dachi, Rakdos Ringleader, Rustrazor Butcher, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Splatter Thug, Viridian Claw, and Zada's Commando are the ones worth maaayayybe considering. In my opinion. Budget-permitting, of course.
