Karn Liberated Discussion

Welcome to Magic the Gathering, where magical ..... well, you know Btw. The strategy you are reffering to is known as Aristocrats.
Rings of Brighthearth - Synergizes with your commander. If you are were to add fetchlands (lands which grab other basic lands from the deck) such as Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs and others, you can get 2 lands for each fetchland by using rings. You sacrifice the fetchland putting the ability on the stack, then pay 2 mana and copy the ability with rings.
Imp's Mischief - This card does a lot of 2 mana. Lots of spells in MTG target. Removal such as Path to Exile, draw spells like Overflowing Insight, extra turns like Time Warp and even Counterspells target. A cool thing you can do aside from redirecting a spell that has 1 target is the following..... You cast your commander, they cast Counterspell, targetting your commander. You then cast imp's mischief, changing the target of the counterspell to imp's mischief. Imp's mischief resolves. Counterspell tries to resolve and counter imp's mischief but because it is removed from the stack, the counterspell does nothing. Then your commander resolves. Very useful card! Do not overlook it!
I see you already have some decent tutors which is good. Tutors ensure consistency, help you get a combo like Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond. They also help you get whatever you need when you need it, it is black's greatest strength in EDH. Now to discuss weaknesses.....
Black has almost no way to get rid of artifacts and enchantments. If an opponent plays Rest in Peace or something similar, you will find yourself in a tough position. As such, having cards such as Blast Zone, Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Ugin, the Ineffable, Meteor Golem, Ratchet Bomb, Lux Cannon and others can be extremely useful.
I don't know what your meta (the group of people you play with) are like and how powerful their decks are, this seems pretty casual. There are lots of cuts and many more cards you can add depending on what you're going for exactly. If you want ideas of other cards to add and/or what to cut, let me know. Mono black EDH is my favorite.

Also here's a sweet (but rather hard/impossible) combo with Barren Glory
It's a 3 card combo including barren glory
- Play karn
- +4 Karn target yourself -> exile barren glory
- wait until next turn, so you have to protect him with blockers or taxes
- +4 Karn target yourself -> exile non-permanent
- gotta keep him alive.. it's hard 3 on 1, but you got this
- Restart the game with ONLY barren glory in play
- Mulligan to 0
- wait until your turn and win

Boza A friend of mine jams a budget Tron deck, and it’s plenty strong. The cool thing about Tron is that the white-bordered lands are relatively cheap, and there are a lot of budget alternatives for the payoffs, where most of the cost of the deck is. Myr Battlesphere may not be as powerful as Karn Liberated , but it’s just as scary on turn three. The deck is really sweet.

This feels like it would take quite a while to set up. Aside from that however, 4 mana karn loses a loyalty every time you run an extra turn cycle. Are you aware of that? My guess is that you can build a reasonable mana advantage in that time even if it runs through a karns loyalty. Maybe you could have a 2nd copy available by then with the extra draw steps.
Another concern i have would be the 8 green spells and only b 12 ways to get green mana. I am thinking a green/x talisman to not only have additional sources but to help ramp as well. . Finally I'm not sure how well this deck will handle the aggro matchups. A couple.more removal spells somewhere between the main or side might be very useful. All Is Dust would line up with the t3 tron plan perfectly.

This list is a decent start but let's look at mono red's weaknesses, card draw and enchantment removal. You have LOTS of cuts to be made, lmk if you want ideas on what to cut or more things to add.
Arch of Orazca - Card draw that only takes a land slot
Commune with Lava - Can be used on end of opponents turns, usually good for 3-5 depending on how much mana you have and your curve.
Endless Atlas - Reuseable, cheap to play, cheap to actives
Hedron Archive - Card draw and ramp
Humble Defector - Draw with politics
Ignite the Future - Very good "draw" as it can be flashbacked
Light Up the Stage - Similar to above
Mind's Eye - Re-useable, fun with wheels
Skullclamp - Cheap easy card draw, fun with myrs
Solemn Simulacrum - Card draw and ramp
Tome of Legends - Your most powerful draw engine in the entire deck
Lastly, with all your enchantments you might want to consider Crystal Chimes

Murderous Rider > Hero downfall
Imp's Mischief - Counters counterspells, redirects removal, redirect some extra turn spells and some draw. Very powerful! > Exlir of immortality
Demonic Tutor or any cheaper variant you desire

Cabal Coffers - ramp , cut temple of false
Deserted Temple - untap coffers , cut bog. If GY shenanigans are prevalent in your meta, then keep it. I would still try to add temple over it because there are other GY hate cards
Imp's Mischief - redirect removal, counter counterspells, redirect some extra turns. All for 2 mana that no1 sees coming. Cut bad moon as it is win more
Your biggest issue at the moment is dealing with artifacts and enchantments. You should add some of the following....
