Only speaking from a modern-perspective, My thoughts are:

Note that most of the above aren’t too overpowered though, so aren’t in massive need of “colouring”. Going further back into legacy territory, we can see some really miserable artifacts that should have colours (Smokestack should be black, Winter Orb should be blue, Skullclamp is probably black-green, etc).

In general with colourless artifacts, there’s the constant problem that they either print the card to weak (to compensate for colourlessness), and nobody uses it, OR they print it too strong, and everyone does, harmonising decks (which they don’t want happening). Being able to apply a colour to an artifact lets them give it a bit more oompf, without as much fear of it becoming an auto-include for every standard deck.

I don't think you have an issue on how to end the game because you can reliably drain the opponent each turn with Contamination's trigger + Blood Artist/Bastion of Remembrance.

I think, however, that maybe Ensnaring Bridge is missing to make the prison full circle.

The deck reminds me of Big Red/Dragon Stompy with Contamination being the "Blood Moon".

Maybe, just maybe, Karn, the Great Creator could occupy 4 slots in the maindeck to tutor for Trinisphere, Chalice of the Void and Ensnaring Bridge.

And maybe even tutor for Wurmcoil Engine or another alt-wincon or a token-generator like Orochi Hatchery or Retrofitter Foundry... not to mention the wide toolbox variety Liquimetal Coating, Mycosynth Lattice, Pithing Needle, Relic of Progenitus, Tormod's Crypt, Executioner's Capsule, Sphere of Annihilation, etc.

Maybe some Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth can help since Ancient Tomb hurts over time.

things in the modern meta to be mindful of are Chalice of the Void and Ensnaring Bridge... have access to a lot of artifact and enchantment removal. I suggest 2 copies of Prismatic Ending and 2 copies of Abrade/Rip Apart. Prismatic ending counts as a 1cmc spell so it can hit chalice on and rip apart can get rid of chalice on and both can clear away ensnaring bridge... maybe even Hurkyl's Recall for affinity matchups.

you dont seem to have much reliance or utilization of your own graveyard as a resource so Rest in Peace/Relic of Progenitus seem like a great option for hosing opponents with graveyard shenanigans.

Cleansing Wildfire/Alpine Moon seem like good options for dealing with somthing like Inkmoth Nexus... Blood Moon also works but its a bit high cmc and youd have to make sure you fetch a basic Plains/Island before playing it.

Because you are in a good countermagic spell could be Remand... it might buy you a turn against a combo deck like Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian and draw you a card.

Great price range, though the list does not include fetch lands.

Do the creatures get answered by Chalice of the Void?

Does Red Deck Wins usually outpace responses, or does RDW use sideboard spots for specific answers to Leyline of Sanctity, Gnaw to the Bone, and Thragtusk?

I find your list very interesting, as 2 of the cards you mentioned (Blood Moon and Chalice of the Void) contribute towards keeping the modern-meta healthy, in that they’re only real purpose is to punish greedy and unfair decks.

My top 3 “hate” cards at the moment would be:

If you're looking for another edge against Lurrus decks you might want to consider Chalice of the Void since a Chalice on 1 tends to lock them out. When Control was big a few months back I think it was getting there on the back of Chalice of the Void+T3feri being good against that meta.
