Lotus Petal, Mox Opal and Chrome Mox are missing...and what I'm missing as well are all the important 1 drop mana elves, such as Arbor Elf, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, Boreal Druid and for two mana Bloom Tender. Carpet of Flowers is also a great card, even produces mana in the 2nd main phase on the same turn it has been played!

enpc I've already thought about sneak attack yesterday...that's an interesting idea, also because it could bring creatures into the graveyard that I'm currently not able to cast and it could be used to get creatures to die and trigger certain abilities (for example Protean Hulk could tutor up the whole aluren combo in the end step then). I don't have much red without blood moon thoughI play the mountain duals primarily for Anger and Wheel of Fortune but I often fetch for non-mountain duals
Unfortunately I have absolutely no space for counterspells and additional removals are also problematic. For counters I am too active, I can't just save mana for that and the free Counters have conditions I am unlikely to meet in this deck (for example additional blue cards to remove, taking back an Island for Daze, ...). I need to use stuff that is not just a response to a problem but also works towards my own goal. So, rather Sneak attack than additional removal :)
dlamars I don't get how I could play engineered explosives with blood moon...of course, I could play it anytime for 3 just in case a blood moon drops later, is that what you mean? I have both EE and pernicious deed, but I think deed would ruin too much of my own important cards. EE for 3 is probably a safe play at any time, it just doesn't work when I get reduced to red mana before I get EE.
MindAblaze I have quite a few little hatebears, so it would work. I'm still trying to find out which cards are the least important in the deck and what I could remove again for more resiliance against nonbasic hate. Most of the deck is fixed because of the Combos and necessary interactions, it's a total of maybe 10 cards, including lands that can be exchanged...for example one recruiter or both? How many and which big reanimate targets? number of lands 30-33? number of mana dorks? how many and which hatebears? Birthing Pod/Sneak Attack/Defense of the Heart yes or no and how important are they? That's a lot of decisions on only few slots but I've already got some good suggestions from this thread!
Does anyone have experience with Carpet of Flowers? Is it good enough to risk having a dead card when absolutely no one lays blue and how realistic is it that there's no Islands in play at all?

@ShaperSavant Have you had any chance to proxy up excavator and test it out yet? I've slotted it in in my build over Carpet of Flowers just because there's not always a deck in my meta every week and it's fantastic if I have to take the Safekeeper line on V1.
Turns out, V1 safekeeper, sac land for shroud, V2 Scryb ranger, V3 excavator is actually quite nice even if I don't hit a strip mine or cradle.

Priest of Titania can quickly get out of control. You ran lots of elves and your commander is an elf too. Has the same role as Gyre Sage and you don't have to use your counters trigger on her for her to get out of control
I think you should cut on the lands and play more dorks. You run none of the elf dorks, which would ramp you harder and would give you an experience counter.Elvish Mystic,Llanowar Elves,Arbor Elf,Fyndhorn Elves,Boreal Druid are all great to have on your starting hand and even if they're all more or less the same card, it gives you consistency

I would drop your land count and add in some alternate mana sources. It will allow you to have quicker starts, and make you less vulnerable to land destruction like [armageddon].
Elvish Mystic, Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, and Elves of Deep Shadow are all quite cheap and worth using. Some slightly less budget options are Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, and Carpet of Flowers. I would drop about 2 lands for every 3 alternate sources you put in.
Since you're not wanting to go the Food Chain route, some good alternate win conditions are Xenagos, God of Revels and Atarka, World Render. Both allow Prossh to one-hit a player by sacrificing all six of his tokens.
CUTS: Deepfire Elemental, Walker of the Grove, Charnelhoard Wurm, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper (most of your creatures will be tokens), Ogre Slumlord, Burn at the Stake, Acidic Slime, Hunted Troll, Deathrender.

Spell Pierce is great all the time. Mental Misstep works in competitive environments because there is always a good 1 drop spell like a Carpet of Flowers you dont want to waste a counterspell on but that you dont want them to have.

other than Sol Ring the others you mentioned are painfully slow. Ok there are tons of 1 drop green ramp spells, here we go. Carpet of Flowers is one of the best green ramp spells in the game, someone will almost always have an island or two but you can skip this one depending on your meta. Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Arbor Elf, Fyndhorn Elves. If you add all the elves which for this deck I kinda think you should you have Priest of Titania and Elvish Archdruid. After those and I didnt put every possibility for elf ball decks you have the 1 drop enchantments that work wonders with Arbor Elf. Cards like Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth those two are considered the best of effect like that however there are many others that are 3 drops. Only use cards that are 1 drops for effects like this.

I think you have too many win conditions personally. I would lean into hermit druid and bomberman combo and add some more goodstuff/artifact ramp. A Mana Vault would be a good add along with a Mox Diamond. After things like that you can't go wrong with Dark Confidant, Yawgmoth's Will, Snapcaster Mage, Sylvan Library, Carpet of Flowers
