You need to add Endless Atlas as it is an amazing source of draw that should not be overlooked in red.

As for cuts, some you will be more hesitant than others to cut...

Anger - Bad haste outlet, needs to be in yard. Eh

Hanweir Garrison - Only synergy with hanweir, even then weak synergy. Not worth including

It That Betrays - Too costly, not impactful enough

Lightning Runner - Weak AF

Urabrask the Hidden - Better haste outlets in lands which are harder to remove, this is not needed

Star of Extinction - Too expensive

Dual Casting - Auras, especially with no way to abuse are just bad (2 for 1)

Chaos Wand - Fun but not efficient

Helm of the Host - VERY fun but too mana intensive. If you had more ramp, I MIGHT recomend it, but its very very winmore.

So my opponent activates Chaos Wand, revealing Arc Blade off the top of my library and casting it for free. As part of resolving Arc Blade, it is exiled with three time counters. I own the card but he controls the spell that exiles the card. On whose upkeep are time counters removed, and who casts the spell when the last one is removed? I can’t seem to find an official rule on this anywhere.

Ender666666, you don't think the Cluestone, Locket, Sol Ring, Staff of Nin , and Vessel of Endless Rest is enough? Plus I have Bontu's Monument , Heartless Summoning and Conduit of Ruin to reduce costs. My thought process behind the land count is as follows: with so many high cmc cards and the filtering of lands via Bloodstained Mire , Rocky Tar Pit and the panoramas, I want to make sure I'm hitting my land drops every turn.

At the very least I can fish for some ramp with Chaos Wand and/or Etali, Primal Storm .

You think something like Mycosynth Wellspring , Mind Stone or Charcoal Diamond should be slotted in? I do have Mana Vault laying around...

To preface, chaos decks in general draw a lot of ire, especially when it is chaos for chaos's sake with no direction toward victory. I personally have no issue with the chaos style, though resolving a Warp World or Scrambleverse is definitely a chore haha. Anyway it looks like you aren't going for anything too egregious here, so you should be fine in the eyes of your opponents. Even so, I might describe the deck as "unique/oddball effects" rather than "chaos" just so opponents don't get the wrong idea and try to eliminate you first because they think your goal is Hive Mind + Undying Flames lol.

As far as the general, have you considered Arjun, the Shifting Flame ? He makes it so that every time you cast a spell, you get a new hand. Pretty chaotic if you ask me! You could fill the deck with unusual effects (like you've done here with Jhoira) so that neither you nor your opponents will know whats coming next. Tasigur, the Golden Fang could be an interesting general as well, since the fact that an opponent chooses the card you get makes it both chaotic and interactive. Ruhan of the Fomori and Atla Palani, Nest Tender are pretty chaotic as well.

These cards might interest you: Chaos Wand , Mindmoil , Stolen Strategy , Charmbreaker Devils , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar , Shared Fate , Telemin Performance , Proteus Staff , Endless Whispers , Infernal Genesis , Bottomless Pit , Thieving Amalgam , Evolutionary Leap , Oath of Druids
