Hey, just a few thoughts. I think you're missing out on some of the great mono-color support out there. I know they can be pricey, but Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Nyx Lotus can all provide great mana.
I'm not sure you really need Spellbook? I haven't played this deck but I do feel that 3 ways to get rid of your max hand size are enough. If you have Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, or Venser's Journal then Spellbook is kind of dead.
Lastly, there's a card that I personally think is severely underplayed that I would like to reccomend. Head Games is a really nice way to mess with people. Do you need a board wipe? Cast Head Games on someone you know has one, give them a board wipe and fill the rest of their hand with bricks. Someone assembling their combo in hand? Make them start over

Paeldroth it’s not a necessity for the deck especially since the lens has gotten pricy over time. Some people also just like the full art snow lands from modern horizons. I’d say just use normal basic lands unless you really want to try for snow lands worth Lens.

Sheoldred, Whispering One -> Tombstone Stairwell: the first looked like the kind of card that does anything i was looking for in this deck. Unfortunately, i usually end up not casting her because of her high mana cost. The second gives a bunch of tokens each turn and works great even if you don't pay the comulative upkeep.

These are all suggestions that will help make your deck function better as you can replace underperforming cards with ramp and card draw, both of which red desperately needs. Your land count is a little low given your avg cmc and your lack of ramp. I can imagine you have a hard time casting your higher cmc cards quite often

Nice deck! I really like the direction you're taking, it looks like we think alike in our strategies for mono red -- feel free to compare to my red Akroma build, I update it regularly: The Red Terror: Akroma's Manifesto
I noticed Akroma and Drakuseth have a few things in common; big CMC, massive presence on the battlefield, and the ability to one-shot opponents. So the emphasize on explosive ramp in red is definitely appreciated. Here's a few thoughts from my experience playing Akroma:
One-time mana benefits like Mana Geyser and Geosurge are strong counter bait (either for the spell or for the commander that comes with it) and so often just leave you with fewer cards in your hand for your trouble. Unless you have alternative wincon plans for that mana, I would focus on permanent-based mana sources. I would look to mana doublers like Gauntlet of Power or even Caged Sun since this improves your board position.
I like your inclusion of Bolt Bend and I recently added it to my deck as well - it's so sneaky. In that vein, you might think of adding Not of This World because people NEVER see it coming, and it's free if you're protecting your commander. Also, I applaud main-decking Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast because they almost always carry their weight in gold.
You might want to think about switching your land base to snow-covered mountains. This would give access to a couple of nice cards like Skred Extraplanar Lens and Mouth of Ronom -- Mouth and Skred are nice responses to Gaddock Teeg, which in my experience often shuts down our decks.
I'd think of including alternative win conditions; Insurrection is often a blow out, and I'd reiterate the strength of Etali, Primal Storm as though it might eat removal, that's one removal spell less that will target your commander. The value of Etali is definitely real. Even Pyrohemia could do wonders here.

In my opinion, every monocolor deck should have a Caged Sun and/or Gauntlet of Power, and every monoblack deck should run some of black's doublers like Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, or even Bubbling Muck. Nyx Lotus and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can really help too.
God-Eternal Bontu is a fun, strong zombie. It's powerful, it lets you draw cards and you can get it back to your deck if it would be exiled. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is one of the strongest zombies in the game, since it can search any card in your deck. I always love boardwipes, and I think your deck is missing one of the best ones for it. Kindred Dominance will leave your field almost untouched, making it pretty useful.
I personally don't like Nim Devourer. It costs 5 for a 4/1, and it won't often get stronger than that with the number of artifacts you run. even if you add more, it's still not the most impressive for it's cost and there are zombies that can come back easier too. Lotleth Giant also doesn't feel worth it. It's much stronger in terms of raw stats for it's mana cost which is good, but a few points of damage when it enters the battlefield doesn't feel worth it when you could be running some of the other cards I've mentioned instead. Death Denied likely won't do as much as you think. It doesn't get any creatures into play, just back to your hand. lets say you want to get back Syr Konrad, the Grim. That would require you to pay 3 mana to get him back to your hand, plus 5 to cast him again. better to just run some sort of revival. I would also argue that instead of Ash Barrens, it's better to just run another swamp. Sure it thins your deck a tiny bit, but it costs you a mana to do that. Finally, Archfiend of Ifnir and Grave Scrabbler. They can both be powerful in the right deck. But I don't think this is it. Your deck doesn't discard enough for them.

Helm of the Host for combo with godo or value with etali
Maybe Embercleave to go with Godo
Maybe add High Market to stop theft effects
Arcane Signet > Prismatic lens
Endless Atlas 100%
There is a 2 drop red card I think that adds mana (I think for dinos and gives them haste, I forgot what it's called, probably from Ixalan set, look it up)
You have a lot of haste outlets, cut need for speed as it's the worst redundancy.
Outpost Siege in your maybeboard should go in. Even without you using top in response to the trigger (to ensure you always have something to cast and get the free card draw), its good stable card draw that you will need.
Mind's eye most def, you NEED card draw. I can't understate this

So I have been playing Chainer for a while now. I can give a bit of insight. First off I do like your list. So now into the thick of it. Chainer is a really mana hungry deck. Strands of Night is an amazing card but in my playing you need a card like Crucible of Worlds to get around the sac clause. All in all it is a fine card if you want to invest more slots to it. Nim Deathmantle No .... this card requires to much for it to be good. paired with a Grave Titan and an Ashnod's Altar is great but that turns into a 3 card combo. IMO not worth it. Lake of the Dead can be good if you add both of the other cards listed above. Soldevi Adnate best card. As long as you have a sac outlet on board and he never gets exiled he is amazing. Even if he does die just animate him back. As far as Pitiless Plunderer great card if you can sac alot. Generates mana witch is nice. As for Gauntlet of Power i mean if you feel as if you need that then go for it. I personally like the Plunderer better because of the fact that it is a creature. It is very hard for black to interact with artifacts and get them back. (Side note I know it can be done but not worth the ammount of slots needed again IMO) As for the cuts do not cut Villis , he is amazing card advantage. Priest is fine if you can make tokens or just have a good grip on the board state. Disciple is an okay card i cut and add it all the time. I also think you have too many cutie lands. swamps are your best friend in the deck along with urborg.
