This is a big change to the deck, but I like the idea of switching the deck to be more focused on repeatable sources of mill, namely Sphinx's Tutelage, Jace's Erasure, and Consuming Aberration. With this change, cantrips like Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm would be more powerful for their low cmc, allowing you to cast lots of spells in a turn, cycling through your deck and milling people out quickly. Your current game plan of pairing utility creatures with mill seems a bit weak, since the ingest plan is very slow, as are Stern Mentor and Vedalken Entrancer.

Whether you stick to your current game plan or decide to switch it up, there are some cards that I believe feel out of place. The x-costing damage-based removal spells (Heat Ray and Fanning the Flames) are incredibly slow, especially with how little ramp in your list. Thunderous Wrath is another very low-impact card I see here.

I believe your removal package is very strong already, you just need to add more instant/sorcery-based draw/cycle, which synergizes with Kess for lots of draw power. I mentioned the cantrips earlier, another great option is Impulse, while Fact or Fiction is an incredibly powerful draw spell that also fills your graveyard with spells to flashback. Forbidden Alchemy is another great spell that cantrips while filling your yard, and has flashback in case you don't have access to Kess. Mind Grind is a great mill finisher, and can be reused with Kess for incredible amounts of mill.

I would suggest adding a little more ramp to your list as well. Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, and Rakdos Signet are some of the best mana rocks, and I try to fit signets into every multicolored deck I play.

Finally, there's a very powerful combo you can run in mill decks that I think would fit in well here with Kess's ability to recur instants/sorceries. Using a counterspell that puts the countered spell on the bottom of its owner's library (Hinder or Spell Crumple), then casting Tunnel Vision naming the countered card, you can mill a player out completely.

bushido_man96 Thanks for upvoting/commenting!

I've considered Blood Moon... not sure what it is about it but maybe it just... doesn't interest me? i dunno. if I ever pull one I'll probably throw it in here but as of right now I don't want to spend $20 unless my heart's behind it haha

I'm not the biggest fan of X-spells but Fanning the Flames might go in!

Appreciate you taking a look friend!

Fluffpocalypse Thank you so much! Neheb is a ton of fun to play!

Braid of Fire is sick but I can only use the mana for instant(it goes away after the upkeep is over) and I like to do stuff after attacking, in my second main. Neheb gives waaaayyy more mana haha

As for Sulfuric Vortex... I think you misread Neheb, the Eternal there. His mana trigger only happens on my post-combat main phase. Not my opponents :( I wish though!

Burning Anger seems interesting and I'll consider it! Concerned about the casting cost and the potential to be 2-for-1ed though.

Again, thank you to you both and to all who upvote and comment! Keep the suggestions rolling!

Ok, this deck looks really tight, so I don't know that there is much I can offer in the way of advise. It would just be insulting, really. That, and I don't play mono-red much. Only thing I can think of is Blood Moon to shut down other players if the game is getting out of hand, but you are running quite a few non-basics yourself, which would suck.

Something I found to be a rather funny interaction is that Neheb's ability basically turns Lightning Bolt into Dark Ritual.

Have you checked out Disintegrate? Its like Fanning the Flames, but no buyback.

Once again, great looking deck.

Megalomania thanks again! I'll have a look!

shiki1335 Thanks for the comment!

Obsidian Battle-Axe I like because it gives Neheb haste, extra power, and that 1 extra toughness that lets him survive stuff like Inferno and Bloodfire Colossus. Mask of Memory is good and I'll consider it.

Inferno. Hmmmm. Fanning the Flames might be a good replacement.

Akroma's Memorial is just too good in my meta and too easy to cast with Neheb. Sphinx-Bone Wand doesn't do enough soon enough.

I'll also consider Seething Song.

Thanks all!

No worries.

Comet Storm is already in the deck, and I've been mulling over putting in the Blasphemous Act + Repercussion combo as well. I'll also pick up a copy of Fanning the Flames soon

You may be better off replacing Dragon Fodder &/or Krenko's Command with Goblin Offensive, Beetleback Chief, or Tempt with Vengeance.

I may be crazy, but it seems like pairing Young Pyromancer with buyback spells might be interesting with Prossh. Fanning the Flames could take the place of Burn at the Stake, Lab Rats or Wurmcalling or Sprout Swarm could take the place of Spoils of Blood, Reiterate is just plain good, Disturbed Burial has it's use, and Haze of Rage is a possible win con.
