Yeah I agree with both of those and will probably add Knight of the Reliquary and maybe Batterskull soon Along with Noble Hierarch if it ever tanks in price xD. The problem as always is figuring out cards that are cut worthy for new additions. Academy Rector may be very powerful but I don't know how consistant it would be without sacrifice outlets

Yeah without all the expensive mana positive rocks its like that. Its definitely worth a spot either way. Im curious why no Masterwork of Ingenuity. Double Skullclamp, Sword of Fire and Ice, or Batterskull is flat out ridiculous.

just a quick few equipment off the top of my head i can think of you might like Konda's Banner just for giving all your cats +2 +2 more on top of the boost from raksha. Sword of Vengeance for more sweet keywords. Masterwork of Ingenuity to copy any other equipments. Darksteel Plate for indestructible. Godsend because that equipment is freaking amazing. Argentum Armor is great even if it costs a bit to get out and equip and Batterskull because obvious reasons. i don't know what your budget would be but you could also throw in Stonehewer Giant for more equipment tutoring. if you can you can spring on some great card advantage in white being Land Tax + Scroll Rack which can come out to paying 1 to draw 3 cards a turn. sweet deck though. get a +1 from me!

Now that I think of it, I have seen quite a few Skred lists that ran Batterskull in the mainboard. Don't know why it slipped my mind when I was making the deck. I think I'll throw it in in place of the third Eternal Scourge as I am not a huge fan of having 3 mainboard anyways. My personal reasoning for only running 3 Blood Moons mainboard is that, while having 4 does make drawing it more guaranteed, if you draw another while you already have one out, it's kind of a dead draw. However, I will probably try playtesting it with 4 to see how it feels. I'm currently running Kolaghan's Command in sideboard as per suggestion of a friend of mine. Originally I had it in place of the 2 mainboard Fatal Pushes but decided to switch to the Fatal Pushes as a good amount of the meta around where I am is super aggressive creature aggro (All-in Goblins, Affinity, Naya Zoo, Jund, etc.). I usually sideboard Kolaghan's Command in against Affinity, though. As for Terminate, I've considered putting it in the place of the Fatal Pushes as there is a guy around here that runs R/G Titanshift and those pesky Titans get annoying. At the same time, however, I've thought about using Dreadbore instead as it would provide an answer to Planeswalkers as well. I will probably go ahead and replace the Surgical Extractions in my sideboard with Slaughter Games as it is only now that I realize that Inquisition doesn't hit Ad Nauseam, and thus cannot be hit buy Surgical Extraction.

This seems like a very 'shutdown' type of Skred deck, so I would definitly suggest Batterskull as it provides a recurring un-removable way of winning, as well as increasing your survivability. I would also recommend a full playset of Blood Moon, as it quite literally is a free win. Possibly Kolaghan's Command? Just a thought. Also, Terminate could be good, for things like Tarmogoyf that can get very big, very quickly. Slaughter Games for the sideboard, against anything particularly annoying cough Storm cough.
Anyways, they're my suggestions, looks pretty good as is :)

So yeah, pretty big improvements that can be made.
Ideally you want to be able to see more of your deck, so Brainstorm, Serum Visions, Ponder (which I noted you had) and Preordain will help you do that. You could even play Predict if you wanted to synergise with them.
You want to be able to play multiple copies of your best cards, and in highlander decks, run back up copies. Snapcaster is obviously good, but there are weaker versions or diffrent version. Torrential Gearhulk, and Recoup seem obvious choices.
For a threat, I don't think you want to be on the Welk/Combust gearhulk plan. I would suggest Stoneforge Mystic/Batterskull and Vendilion Clique. Clique is flash/flyer 3/1 who basically removes a card they want from their hand. Stoneforge/Batterskull thins deck, stoneforge fetches batterskull and it wins you games an uncounterable instant speed 4/4 for 2
