No problem austintayshus! It's a fun idea definitely! Let me know how your deck list turns out and feel free to ask for any help!

Technically it's a mixed variant, I can potentially win within T3-4 if I so choose to but it's more risky that way as I won't have built up enough resources to protect by winning line. To be specific it's a mid-range Ad Nauseam built where if it ever resolves during any mid-game the probability of winning is about 90%.
The key point is having Kess on the battlefield and use her as a recurable resource, I didn't go storm route because if I did I would actually change up the deck list and be going towards a Bonus Round route and use different types of rituals ex. Rite of Flame / Pyretic Ritual / Desperate Ritual .
Paradoxical Outcome is great in any storm deck, just doesn't fit the bill for me as I am running an Ad Naus curve, especially since I am running Dark Petition in the deck since I don't own another Imperial Seal yet. Life management is huge for me as I am pretty known as the threatening player so aggro always come at me first plus a majority of our board wipes in these colors rely on life ( Fire Covenant / Toxic Deluge ). That being said I do contemplate time from time in adding in Pyroclasm or even Volcanic Fallout .
Also yes, Shadow of Doubt has been one of my tech cards that is super lit, literally tells someone NO. Although you have to be careful as you can't tutor as well until end of turn.

I think there's at least a few auto includes youre missing here
1. Toxic Deluge
2. Fire Covenant
3. Blood Moon
4. Magus of the Moon
4. Pyroblast Functional clone of Red Elemental Blast and a better version of some of your other red counter spells
5. Gamble This downside isn't always all downside because of the GY focus of deck
Should Strongly Consider
1. Dark Confidant You have very low avg CMC so this will never be a problem
2. Demonic Consultation
4. Praetor's Grasp
5. Imperial Seal
6. Blood Artist Has a lot of synergy with your combos
7. Rakdos Signet
8. Talisman of Indulgence
9. Cabal Ritual
10. Cursed Totem
1. Rolling Earthquake
2. Dark Petition
3. Azra Oddsmaker
5. Infernal Darkness
7. Anger of the Gods
8. By Force
9. Animate Dead
10. Phyrexian Arena
11. Mindblade Render

Thing is, most common infinite mana combo in our playgroup is Deadeye Navigator and Peregrine Drake (Unless we are facing infinite everything Animar, Soul of Elements , but it's unlikely this deck will go against him), and both of them will easily dodge the wipe - and they tend to emerge from Defense of the Heart , which needs either counter, or removal ( Beast Within or Chaos Warp ). We also have Judith, the Scourge Diva player, and thank god he doesnt know about Worldgorger Dragon infinite mana combo. All those creatures won't even notice weak Pyroclasm or Volcanic Fallout . I might replace counterspells with instant mass-removal, but again, it requires a lot of mana, which I won't have if I don't land Seedborn Muse or Wilderness Reclamation - otherwise I will just sit with all those creatures in my hand, unable to play because of anticipated shenanigans.
Are there any cards you might consider to be removed? Would love to hear your opinion on that.
I am debating about Champion of Rhonas , since unless I am playing against creatureless control or paintrain (FYI I am the only player with control ( Lavinia, Azorius Renegade ) and paintrain ( Mogis, God of Slaughter ) decks) since he will be able to proc only once, max, before being blocked in the face.
Also, I am considering to add cheap tutors in the deck, like Time of Need to find Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Yeva, Nature's Herald , maybe Fierce Empath , Gamble , Signal the Clans , Wild Pair or even Momir Vig, Simic Visionary .

If it's random dorks going infinite you can tech in cards like Pyroclasm or Volcanic Fallout a majority of your creatures will dodge the wipe, and there are other cards like Magmaquake or Fault Line for the instant speed removal.

The other way to fight this deck is to keep Tymna from drawing cards. Good, efficient sweepers like Toxic Deluge , Fire Covenant , and Pyroclasm can help keep them off the gas pedal. There are a ton of other good sweepers, just make sure you can hit the board for 2 damage, and keep Tymna from hitting people.
If you take a good look at Sanctum Prelate , you'll see that it only stops noncreature spells. Blood Pod is a hatebears deck first and foremost, so a card like Sanctum Prelate really doesn't do much against Blood Pod.
The best way, in my opinion, to beat Blood Pod is to disrupt their card advantage, and then win quickly. Because it is a staxy creature deck, Blood Pod wants to drag the game out. With their big swingy creatures, they're advantaged in the long game. Sweep their card advantage away, and then combo them. It's hard because of their stax pieces, but that's the best way to combat them.
Beating Blood Pod is tough (it's a good deck and top tier for a reason!) but I hope this helps!
