With your bounce theme you may want to consider some ETB effects like:
Rune-Scarred Demon or Torgaar, Famine Incarnate or Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
Maybe one or two graveyard hate cards, such as Bojuka Bog or Agent of Erebos.
Or possibly other good ETB's such as Big Game Hunter or just to be funny Ichor Rats

What's your philosophy here? What do you want your deck to do?

Bound in Silence fits better than Pacifism since you can tutor for it. Same thing with Big Game Hunter over one of your kill spells. Pious Warrior and Shield Dancer make pretty good surprise blockers too.

Junktroller, Mistveil Plains, and Reito Lantern add a little redundancy to Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, Mercenary Informer, and Rebel Informer.

You've also got pieces to a few combos but they would need a few more parts. Teysa, Orzhov Scion combos with Darkest Hour but it really needs a Blood Artist and Ashnod's Altar to work. Cho-Manno, Revolutionary combos with Pariah and Pariah's Shield. Those two also combo with Stuffy Doll.

One last Card. Conspiracy turns every creature into Rebels or Mercenaries, letting you tutor for any creature in your deck.

You could potentially cheat out decent spells with their madness cost...things like Asylum Visitor, Alms of the Vein, Big Game Hunter, Fiery Temper, Bloodhall Priest, From Under the Floorboards, Gorgon Recluse, and Dark Withering.

These are all pretty cheap and have some decent abilities...

Nihil Spellbomb > Relic of Progenitus - as it spares your grave. (And you dont need to hold up mana in case you may need an emergency activation).

If you wan to stick to BR, then Rakdos Charm is by far the best option, as it is good against multiple decks freeing up sideboard slots, it can take the playe of both artifact and grave hate & has can provide extreme reach against go wide decks, like Mardu midrange, or just a storm deck that played Empty the Warrens.

I menat that Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is bad because you have no way to intentionally flip it, thus decks that would have hard time against it can simply blow it uo, or not take block that would flip it.

In general i would advocate for avoiding cards like Nihil Spellbomb that actively feed Tarmogoyfif you use them or discard them, if there are alternatives.

If you are looking for a boardwipe then in red you have Anger of the Gods (awesome against dredge, merfolk, elves, goblins... etc.), or you could use something like Bontu's Last Reckoning (its very bad in decks that have so few lan like this), or Damnation

Fatal Push is not good sideboard material, i would play Big Game Hunter (can't be hit by Negate, Stubborn Denial... etc.), Murderous Cut (as 1 of), or even lightning bolt over it.



In terms of mana base, you should cut back on Swamps, as you don't need black sources in turn 1 (and often even in turn 2), not to mention that all your "cantrips" are red, which means that if you got red mana you can find blck much more easilythan if the reverse is true. (However if blood moon is a large part of your meta, you may need to keep those swamps)

bgntsty yeah, Big Game Hunter is pretty sweet. Not sure if there is space for it in the main though... Maybe as a two of in the board? Also, you may want to consider doing a 1-1 split of Wrath of God and Day of Judgment in your sideboard for Meddling Mage purposes. I don't think regenerate comes into effect too often, but if your Humans matchup is good enough as is (which it should be from what I understand) then it might not matter too much.

Woodland Bellower package would enjoy a Big Game Hunter. You can also use it to tutor up Vampire Hexmage, killer of planeswalkers and nothing else.

Kiora, the Crashing Wave explores seem good.

This style of deck probably thrives off of a modest suite of black sweepers, to reuse your effects. And it's obviously sacrilege to not run Putrefy.

On the topic of durdly land goofery, Ghost Quarter is mandatory, both offensively and as a way to recycle your lands into the graveyard for replaying and tutor up to new basics for additional basics. Lotus Cobra also sounds fun. Barrin, Master Wizard can sac your lands when they're in surplus for late game interaction, and is a reasonable mana sink for your alpha strike turns. Infernal Tribute might also be reasonable.

Recycling Nihil Spellbomb every turn is kind of boner inducing.

Duplicant could be a creature spot removal you're looking for.

Banewhip Punisher a bit more harder to abuse without prior synergy.

Big Game Hunter Depends how big your meta is.

Death Pits of Rath Since GY is like a second hand, it might have a place here?

Evil Twin Another target to copy hulk or something beefy in play.

That's all I could think of for creature spot removal that can target anything.
