I would probably cut the second sword for a Lavaclaw Reaches and maybe 2 swamps for 2 Dragonskull Summit ...maybe even cut 2 more for 2 more Marsh Flats or Polluted Delta for budget reasons. This deck seems to want and make sure to have red available turn 1.

I playtested this deck against my brother. Who plays a counters deck. And uses Dromoka's Command. And... it kinda fuucked me up...
So he killed my first Sphinx's Tutelage. And i was so happy i got my second one. Then he got the command back with Den Protector and it was game over... Second game i had 2 Sphinx's Tutelage in my hand. Played my first. Had to sac it cuz you know... command. Played my second... another command... So yeah, I agree we need Duress.
So i was thinking, how to make it a deck... And the upcomming landcycle from Battle for Zendikar is gonna be great! But we need to adjust the deck for it a lot to work.
So i think we want 4 Duress and 2 or 3 Read the Bones. Sadly Read the Bones is relatively expensive to cast. so i think we dont want to much of it so we can keep drawing cards and dont get stuck with too few mana to spend. That's why idd say to keep Tormenting Voice since it is cheap and it fuels our deck for our treasure cruises. So we need to drop Divination, and the 4 Magmatic Insight and a few lands to get 4 Duress and 3 Read the Bones.
Now we need to change our landbase. I think we'll go back to 24. So something like this
3 Sunken Hollow
2 Smoldering Marsh
Still adapting on what is best, this is what i just came up with. We still need a good way to gain some life...

The biggest thing is, at the end of the day Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is still the best eldrazi commander (pending more spoilers) and while some decks can hard cast him turn 4, if he's one of the 99 then they either have to draw into him or tutor for him. Though T1 Swamp into Dark Ritual, Entomb, Reanimate seems good. Unlikely but good.

Oh yeah, for sure but I always give people a full list of recommendations and let them decide how much they want to spend.
I've won games on turn 3 before with just a handful of cards. Combos that require 2 or 3 cards are pretty common in high level play. I used to play this one:
Turn 3: Play Reveillark. Win.
That's an instant win for infinite damage.
It goes like this:
Because Karmic Guide enters the battlefield Blasting Station untaps and is ready to use again. Also, because Karmic Guide entered the battlefield you can use its ability to pull the Reveillark you literally just sacrificed from the graveyard to the battlefield.
With Karmic Guides ability on the stack (it hasn't yet happened but is about to) you sacrifice it to Blasting Station at instant speed. The blasting station taps, it deals 1 damage, and Karmic Guide dies. But its ability trigger is still waiting to happen so you let that resolve - which returns Reveillark and untaps Blasting Station. That last part is complicated because you need to kill a creature in response to its own ability but you are allowed to do that, and the ability still happens. Anyway at the end you're left with Reveillark and Blasting Station in play, with Karmic Guide in the graveyard - repeat for infinite damage.

One more thing I just thought of, because you are running 4x Whispering Specter and only 3x Swamp I think you will find the Specter ends up being a dead card in your hand more often than not right now due to your land composition.

i have only played this deck a few times in a proxy version... i splash blue for cheap card filtering and re-usable spot removal through snapcaster mage...
the game plan remind me of american control with hand disruption instead of counterspells...
1x Mana Leak
4x Devour Flesh
4x Marsh Flats
1x Watery Grave
hope it helps
