Howling Mine Discussion

I think Temple Bell / Howling Mine always sound like a good idea but ultimately become your undoing; especially in a multiplayer game... someone is gonna end up drawing/playing something you cant deal with and or combo off (thats my opinion)... in a 1V1 game it could work with blowing up lands with Sinkhole / Strip Mine and all that kinda fun stuff; and id say go the opposite rout of The Rack / Shrieking Affliction and go with Black Vise / Ebony Owl Netsuke .
I suggest Necrogen Mists to keep hands empty and Dakmor Salvage for its synergy with Smallpox / Raven's Crime ... for some protection Ensnaring Bridge can help keep creatures from plowing you over and Pack Rat / Zombie Infestation can be good for getting value from "dead" discard spells.... there is also the queen of 8-Rack herself Liliana of the Veil .

Doomblade, take out ghoulcaller's chant (your draw of chant to return lab maniac could just be another lab maniac instead), add ponder over forbiden alchemy as its just better aint it, Windfall is good for this alongside Kami of the Crescent Moon Howling Mine and even Jace Beleren , since the goal is to win through self mill via demonic consultation might wanna consider removing all the stalkers and scholars and shit and just throwing in like Fog Bank and Wall of Frost
Couldn't link cards as unknown is an un set and none of the linked cards are legal....

Here's a pretty good list of what I'd tweak:
Add - Breya, Etherium Shaper , Revel in Riches , Vampiric Tutor / Demonic Tutor / Diabolic Tutor etc., Forced Fruition , Master of the Feast , Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas , Stroke of Genius , Anvil of Bogardan , Howling Mine , Howling Golem , Copy Enchantment , Blinkmoth Urn , Broodstar
Remove - Daretti, Scrap Savant , Laboratory Maniac , Coveted Jewel , Flux (nobody will choose to do it), Psychosis Crawler (YOU don't necessarily draw enough), Alhammarret's Archive (costs too much mana for a do-nothing), Sunbird's Invocation , Oath of Teferi (too niche), Chandra Ablaze (on the fence, just a lot of mana), Propaganda / Ghostly Prison / Sphere of Safety (unless you're in a super-aggro meta)

Tried to add some more artifacts and some more firepower. I'm also thinking that these will pair well with Unwinding Clock (especially the Artifact Lands). Competitive Meter went from 76% to 78%.

The first thing I think of looking at this new card is reanimator. The next thing I thought was "damn, why couldn't he be in Rakdos?" But anyway....
To me, he could really run well with Daretti, Scrap Savant , being a more efficient way of pitching more artifacts and drawing more cards. What I'm wrestling with is whether he is strong enough to run as the Commander, or in the 99 alongside Daretti or even Feldon of the Third Path . He just screams to pitch artifacts and then cast Scrap Mastery or start digging with Goblin Welder and Daretti.
Here's the drawback I see with him. Its hard to draw cards consistently and keep a full grip in mono red. At 4 CMC, you can get him out early, by turn 2 or 3, depending on how aggressively you can ramp (or what you ramp you can afford). Red does rummage really well, but even then, you are trading cards for cards, and not really gaining much. The Wheel effects will be really helpful once a hand runs dry. I would recommend running Book of Rass as another card draw option, and perhaps a Howling Mine as well.
I think you've got something good started here. Let us know how it plays out for you. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this deck grows.

You don't really have the feel of a group hug deck here. A few cards you are running are group-huggish, like Veteran Explorer , Orzhov Advokist , and Kami of the Crescent Moon . Otherwise, you are running more of a pillowfort deck, where you are trying to incentivise others to attack players other than yourself.
If you want to go group-hug, you should consider running cards like Rites of Flourishing , Eladamri's Vineyard , Magus of the Vineyard , Howling Mine , Noble Benefactor , Dictate of Kruphix , Awakening , and cards such as these that really benefit the rest of the table, along with yourself. Its ok to run group-hug alongside a pillowfort strategy, but you don't have much group-hug going on right now that I can see.
