Chandra, Flamecaller Discussion

I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.
36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.
If you wanna go revel in riches
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it
If you wanna go infect
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate
Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build

Cards I'd recommend: Chandra, Flamecaller was reprinted in this year's commander decks so is really cheap, and she's one of the better Chandras, working especially well with this Neheb.
Speaking of Chandra - the Chandra's Spellbook just reprinted Fiery Confluence, one of the best cards in a Neheb deck in terms of flexibility so if you want to keep this deck around, you might consider picking it up. If Neheb is on the field and you have 3 opponents, you can use it to deal out 6 damage to each player, resulting in 18 mana during your second main phase. It's great, but it's also not really a budget card. The only reason I mention it is how good it is here and it was about 20 bucks until the recent reprint, and now it's about 3.
Outpost Siege is a decent way to draw cards, which is important in mono red.
You can't really go wrong with how you build Neheb. He's a ton of fun.

Here's my take on what to cut:
Elvish Aberration: 6 mana is a lot just to ramp. Cycling is nice, but doesn't directly Ramp.
Ghitu Chronicler: Again, expensive. There are much better things to do with our 6-mana
Krosan Tusker: Same as before. Expensive for what it is, doesn't directly ramp.
Magus of the Candelabra: Unless we can double mana somehow, doesn't actually ramp.
Nessian Demolok: Can be useful, but I've found tribute usually gets paid with these cards since creatures are pretty easy to deal with.
Oblivion Sower: Fun card, but just doesn't fit the deck
Treasonous Ogre: Just seems really slow to me
Valley Rannet: Same reasons as the tusker
Void Attendant: Again, just doesn't fit with the deck
Vessel of Volatility: Slow, and I honestly prefer my ramp to be repeatable
Land. I usually stick to around 36, I'd go down to there and test to see if it works out all right (Maybe 1 or 2 more since you seem to have a good amount of lands that can be sacrificed).
The Chain Veil: Not exactly useful here. You have some Planeswalkers, but not enough to really make it worth it.
Blood Feud: Too expensive for what it does. Green has a lot cheaper options
Processor Assault: Good value for your mana, but how often does exile come up in your games?
Volcanic Vision: Has potential, but I'm not really seeing a whole lot of spells that make it great.
Yawning Fissure: Doesn't fit strategy of the deck
Fiery Fall: Expensive.
These are just my thoughts, hope it helped!
(Also, Pyromancer's Goggles seems good here.)

Humble Defector - Khorvath's Fury - Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip - Tormenting Voice - Faithless Looting - Cathartic Reunion - Thrill of Possibility - Outpost Siege - Wild Guess - Shreds of Sanity - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Tamiyo's Journal - Seer's Sundial - Ghirapur Orrery - Loreseeker's Stone - Magnifying Glass
Not owned but worth considering:
I really like Chandra, Flamecaller. Seems like planeswalkers would be hard to defend though?

Thanks greyninja! I'm generally not a blue player but If you cant beat em, join em. I got most of these counter spells for my Narset deck. Im still looking to pick up a mana drain though ( thats why its in the maybe ). Ill be sure to check yours out and suggest some things if needed.
Dovin's Veto is one of the better control cards in magic. I just haven't found a spot for it and I need to pick one up.
I have Chandra, Flamecaller in my maybe board. I do think she would fit the deck very well but im having trouble taking cards out for another planeswalker. She is also very expensive for just using a wheel effect.
Jeskai Ascendancy is a good card but im not sure we could abuse the first bit of text. We are already growing our generals at an absurd rate so getting an extra 1 or 2 damage doesnt help us much. Untapping is nice but im not sure if its worth it without some kind of combo that im not aware of. Lastly, the line of text saying we can discard and draw whenever we cast a noncreature spell is very much in our line of play. The only thing I wonder is if its actually needed. We are already cycling through our library with wheel effects and hopefully keeping our hand full of things to do. I will say that the deck needs more things to cast before 4 mana. Alot of the times it feels like I start the game at turn 6 getting my generals in play. Maybe this is what i need to fix that.
Thrill of Possibility fits into the same logic as before. Im not sure I need more draw spells when im consistently drawing 7 ( or close to it). Something to think about for sure tho. Much better with Jeskai Ascendancy and Whirlwind of Thought
