Love the deck, just see a bit of a problem with the Sweltering Suns in the sideboard. having just 3 red sources, all of which come in tapped, might not allow you to cast Sweltering Suns when you want it. I have no doubt you will find the 3 lands because of the heavy cycling theme, but likely not turn 3-4, right when you need it. This is just a concern that I have, I don't know if that scenario will actually come up in games, but at a glance it could be an issue. An easy fix would be to remove a forest for a Mountain in main, as you still have the same number of untapped lands, and green has enough lands already (the extra advantage is the fact that you can get it from the Shefet Monitor . Love how you made all the sideboard cards improve your goal AND help against certain matchups, That's always a sign of a great brew. Honestly i love this deck and will definitely try it out. great job!

This looks incredible, +1 from me!
Hopefully you can take a minute to check out one or two of my decks, maybe animar since it's updated and in the same color scheme.
Keep up the good work!

Ifnir Deadlands is a pretty sweet desert, and with Excavator with a removal spell you can continue to recur.
Hazoret the Fervent also seems really good in this deck by discarding lands you draw for a free 2 damage and then playing it from the graveyard for all the value.
Shefet Monitor might have a place?

Thanks for the upvote and suggestions KeelHaul10!
Do you like any of your suggestions more than Tormod's Crypt? Because that's the swap I'll end up making, though i think the crypt might be better for now? I was thinking Primal Command or Struggle / Survive might be clever ways of hating graveyard nonsense. though the mana cost of the crypt is the best selling point it has.
Quick aside on Vicious Shadows, It's really good! It triggers on any creature dying not just my own. And if folks are casting all the cards in their hands my board wipes will be that much more effective. Also it can sometimes combo-kill the table when someones playing tokens and i have Blasphemous Act lol.
Shefet Monitor is fun with Radha, Heir to Keld because you attack with radha, get the trigger and cycle the monitor. than that same turn you have 3 untapped lands to hopefully cast another ramp spell. That's my thoughts behind it anyway, I am looking at is as my weakest ramp spell for sure.

Graveyard hate, eh? Burn Away do anything for you? if not, I recommend Mudhole for lands, Cranial Archive for card draw, Phyrexian Furnace is cheap but slow, Thran Foundry, and Watchers of the Dead seem like good choices to sub in. as for cuts, if you feel Vicious Shadows over preforms, then leave it in, but I just don't see how. It's trigger can be mitigated by having a low hand count. Shefet Monitor also could be cut.
All in all, I love your deck, commander needs more beat-down decks like this one rather than the tier 1 combo-crud that's been hitting my meta recently.
