Hey, you're welcome. I like the changes you've made :)

Unfortunately, consider more than four sources of blue mana to play 3x Bolas? Bolas is an important part of the deck because he's a Dragon and a four drop. I suggest 10-12 sources of blue to consistently be able to cast Bolas turn four without having either Sarkhan or Hoard mana. Sarkhan and Hoard help a lot to cast Bolas, but you can't just rely on them.

Consider this 25 land manabase (17 red, 14 black, 10 blue):

  • 4x Slough
  • 4x Summit
  • 4x Falls
  • 4x Catacomb
  • 5x Mountain
  • 2x Swamp
  • 2x Island

In the example I've cut Field of Ruin. With the addition of blue you now have a three color manabase which Ruin can't really fit into. You want to use it's spots in the manabase for blue.

Another option to consider is 2x Unclaimed Territory in place of 2x Island. Territory is nice when set to Dragon it can make one of any of three colors that Bolas requires. Since the only blue card is Bolas Territory can cast him while also being used to cast any of the other mono double red Dragons.

Nomad Mythmaker provides repeatable Aura recursion.

Sun Titan is the undisputed King of Recursion, and has many targets in your deck.

Sylvan Caryatid is one of the better mana dorks available. It's a decent blocker and produces both of your colours.

Rancor is cheap, effective, and recurs itself.

Sol Ring is a Commander staple. It's included in every Commander Precon deck, so it's easy to acquire. Colourless mana may make things awkward for Krond, but it's still ramp for your other spells and can pay for Commander Tax.

Reviving Melody is a great recursion spell for enchantment decks.

Spot Removal options:

Command Tower is a Commander staple. It's included in every multicoloured Commander Precon deck, so it's easy to acquire.

Bountiful Promenade, Canopy Vista, Fortified Village, Scattered Groves, Sunpetal Grove, and Temple of Plenty are all relatively cheap dual lands.

Blighted Woodland, Krosan Verge, and Myriad Landscape are ramp effects on lands.

Cascading Cataracts makes colourless mana less awkward for Krond.

Field of Ruin tags one of your opponents' utility lands.

Contaminated Ground, Shadow of Doubt, Field of Ruin are all good in the Tron match up.

1-2 Field of Ruin in place of a Ghost Quarter or two might be a good change as well. Also, if you're having trouble with Tron, try a couple Crumble to Dust in side. Might even work having 1 in main, one in side.

I think you're right when it comes to having a tiny bit more countermagic. I really do want to add 1 Spell Snare over a discard spell. The chance of drawing a discard spell if I remove 1 falls down 5% which is 1 in 20 games so it's not that big of a deal.

As for Delve, it get's awkward with Search for Azcanta  Flip and Snapcaster Mage. I used to run 1 Murderous Cut and decided to run Dismember over it after a while. More fetches would help, but then I would be running either less Field of Ruin or less basics which hurts in certain matchups. At the point I might as well just change to Grixis Shadow.

Not really a "threat" but I think 1 Liliana, the Last Hope would probably be a good addition. Getting back a Snapcaster Mage can be huge later in the game. If drawn early, I can just straight out win the game with an early emblem if I have enough protection.

Here's maybe a fun idea: How about Aven Mindcensor? It combos really really well with some cards in your mainboard, namely Field of Ruin, Wizard's Retort, and Settle the Wreckage. And, of course, it's Flash. :D
