I like it! My previous mono-black CMDR that used a lot of these cards was Maralen of the Mornsong. I can sleeve up almost the entire deck but due to budget I plan to replace Candelabra of Tawnos, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, and Bazaar of Baghdad with Liliana of the Veil, Geth's Grimoire, Crucible of Worlds, and Inventors' Fair. I think I will try Paradox Engine over Voltaic Key and Painful Quandary instead of Oppression.

It actually took me till about turn 8 when testing this deck vs 3 others to realize that this deck was creatureless. Don't know how you do it, but you keep creating decks that I love. +1 good sir .
- Lake of the Dead + Crucible of Worlds. Lake is great for extra mana when needed; and crucible for when you discard and/or combo with Lake. Maybe I'm stubborn and think missing land drops is bad.
- Isochron Scepter: I count 9 instants this works well with. I'm not sure how often you'll have a hand, but when I playtested, several times I got a full hand back with Geth's Grimoire and Waste Not.
- Hecatomb: Go full jank... if you want... I once had 8 creatures from other players, and another time had 5 zombies from Waste Not. Ehhhhhhh? I could see it helping out, but certainly situational.

I love a good mono-red BEATS deck! How does Urza's Rage sound? Chandra, Pyromaster is a cheap planeswalker than can copy a devastating damage spell. Dual Casting for more copying. If you want to have fun and gamble, Fiery Gambit can attract a crowd to your table to watch (Imagine copying it!). Braid of Fire Ain't cheap, but it'll supply you with mana. Wild Ricochet is almost an auto-include for me (saved me multiple times). run Brand if card stealing is heavy in your meta.
Card Draw: Unfortunately, Red mana doesn't have great access to card draw without discard effects; Avaricious Dragon, Browbeat can net a few cards, Burning Inquiry, Goblin Lore, Control of the Court, Mindmoil does a dope job of letting you dig through your library. ALOT of wheel effects.
BUT Geth's Grimoire Makes amazing use of these wheel effects!!
You might be interested in Otherworld Atlas. Yes it gives everybody cards, but hardly anyone can complain or target the guy giving everyone cards. Arcane Spyglass makes use of unneeded mana. Farsight Mask, Font of Mythos, Illuminated Folio, Staff of Nin, Well of Knowledge,
Sorry for the gross wall of text, hope this helps!!

how does the deck develop in the early turns? - Disruption, disruption, disruption. Find something to gum up the works asap. Chains of Mephistopheles, Oppression, Desolation, Mindslicer, Contamination, or Infernal Darkness all work wonders. Necropotence, Waste Not, or Geth's Grimoire are great for creating early advantage, but they don't adversely affect opponent game plans, so first priority is disruption.
what is the reason you arent running buried alive? - It's unnecessary and it reveals lots of information. Unless you can immediately convert Buried Alive into a win, you've given the table a map of what line you're on. I prefer to develop wincons as they emerge to keep opponents guessing.
how do you feel about pawn of ulamog? - I've considered it a couple times. It still may find its way in. At the end of the day, the trouble with this and Grim Haruspex is that they only trigger when nontoken creatures die. Sure, that dovetails fine with Gravecrawler, but you want to capitalize on everything if possible (Dark Prophecy, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Carnival of Souls).
inventors fair seems playable here - Agreed. It comes and goes.
nether traitor - It's a combo piece that has no other utility. Try to keep those to a minimum.
