My suggestion: add red for Faithless Looting and maybe Cathartic Reunion . You need more discard outlets and Haunted Dead is not nearly enough bang for your buck.

I see no scenario where Haunted Dead is better than another Hymn to Tourach , land (you have FIFTEEN), or Sinkhole .

If Collective Defiance had an escalate cost not tied to paying mana, like Collective Brutality and Collective Effort, even if that cost was sacrificing a land, I'd like it more. As it stands, you are likely to only use one mode, so why not just run Cathartic Reunion? Hollow One wants to play fast, an extra mana is a big thing. Scrapheap Scrounger is ok, I guess, though why not just run Bloodsoaked Champion, Haunted Dead or Hellspark Elemental as Bloodghast, since they don't eat your graveyard, which your delve creatures will need?

I play a Hollow One variant myself; Power 4 is Ferocious it isn't budget, but it could be; Power 4 is Ferocious Budget. Losing the fetches, even with a cycle land will hurt more than you might realise, though I'd also run 10 mountains and 2 swamps, even if unlikely, you could end up with a no red sources in your opening hand, at the moment. You can still get the classic start of Flameblade Adept then a discard spell next turn into Hollow One or the more explosive multiples of the golem, so that aspect is solid. I wish you luck with your brew, Hollow One is the most fun I've had in a while with a deck. Hope this is of help.

I'd cut Enclave Cryptologist, the level up creatures are just mana sinks and you don't need a mana sink, instead try Magus of the Bazaar. I'd also cut Call the Bloodline and Sinister Concoction for either Zombie Infestation or Haunted Dead and perhaps try to find a space for Cunning Survivor, Nether Traitor or Grave Scrabbler.

Well that's a few suggestions, hope they help, have fun brewing your deck.

I'd suggest Magus of the Bazaar over Jace's Archivist, it's unusual to see this sort of deck without some form of recurring creature, you could use Flamewake Phoenix or Haunted Dead, which also doubles as a discard outlet. Another possibility is cards like Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate which force both players to discard and draw, though this isn't without risks since a lot of modern decks leverage the graveyard.

Hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

On second thought after making some changes Haunted Dead works pretty well with the deck

You might be able to use Shadowstorm Vizier in the same way that the RB Hollow One deck uses Flameblade Adept. I probably prefer Haunted Dead to Call the Bloodline too and the Archfiend of Ifnir might be better as one of the delve cards; Gurmag Angler, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Empty the Pits and Necropolis Fiend.

First off I'd suggest Magus of the Bazaar over Merfolk Looter. Other cards that might help are Haunted Dead and Phantasmagorian. Given your colour choice, you might be able to use Shadowstorm Vizier, in the same way the more traditional RB deck uses Flameblade Adept. I play a Hollow One deck myself HollowFlayer, though I'm also trying to leverage Soulflayer
