Tried playtesting this against my Minn, Wily Illusionist EDH deck. On turn 6 or 7, I gained control of Karona, False God, attacked, then played Ixidron, effectively trapping your commander on my board. Another card in my deck would effectively do the same thing: In Too Deep. It was a bit of a slow drawn out process from there, but you may need something to destroy your commander if it gets trapped like this. Also saw after that this is meant to be a political deck, but.. just some notes.

Thantis, the Warweaver is so open-ended. When I did build Thantis to care more about forcing unfavorable combat I leaned heavily into lifelink... so: Whip of Erebos, etc... This way I could be more aggressive with my vigilant commander while also heavily discouraging swing-wide in my direction, (I had some situations where it came down to 1v1 & a field of 1/1's would swing at me, grow Thantis, & actually gain me life for the crackback). One of my favorites for anti-voltron was Shiny Impetus. I never personally saw that much allure to deathtouchees or Archetype of Finality, I'd rather be trampling with my giant commander & lifelinking aggressively. With playtesting, my opponents were tapped out half the time & open for business, or they had chump blockers which were going to be dead anyway (deathtouch was lame either way). The only reason I stopped playing combat-focused Thantis is because my meta was so heavy on non-combat tactics (tapdown their own stuff, etc...) So I eventually changed over to Jund goodstuff & making a lifedrain token-army deck.

Anger is a fantastic idea! I'll have to think hard about removing Shiny Impetus, as goad is one of my favorite mechanics and it fits both the theme and the mechanics of the deck well. I'll have to make a cut somewhere though, as you are correct, haste is an absolute must in this deck. My inclination points to Rose Room Treasurer, as it's a 4 mana do nothing the first turn its out and slowly recoups that value provided you have creatures entering and mana to blow on removal, which makes its floor-to-ceiling ratio pretty ludicrous (roughly in line with the risk/reward of having Anger in the list).
Duke Ulder Ravengard is definetely in there to high-roll on Winota triggers, and I like that if I play him for 6 he at least does something that turn. That being said, Zariel, Archduke of Avernus is some GAS. I think this is an easy swap, although I wanna play at least 1 game where I get Duke out to see how he feels before I switch him out of the list.

Shiny Impetus is a sweet gem though. Keeps the damage train going, pseudo removal, good anti-voltron. I play it in decks that don't double triggers & it usually nets me at least 2 ramp + a bunch of damage going elsewhere.

Gleeock - I see where Captive Audience could work, but I don't think I'm going to include it in this list. Despite how much I love that card in a different deck I have. I forgot all about Calculating Lich and I think I own one. I'll definitely look into that. Bitterblossom and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs were both cards I was looking at taking out because Bitterblossom is so slow and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs relies on my opponents. Most likely they won't attack me until they can pay or get rid of it. I'll keep that in mind as I playtest as well. Shiny Impetusand Curse of Opulence were both considered but I thought they were a bit too slow for the slow. I might do Professional Face-Breaker if I decide to add in some more ramp in that form.

Maybe Captive Audience. Calculating Lich for political redundancy. Though, mana value is still an issue. Shiny Impetus is a pretty aggressive ramp, that works as pseudo problem-removal. Curse of Opulence is more of the same.
