This is truly a mishmash, but out of all your creatures the ones that jump out at me are the disproportionately high number of spiders. Spider tribal could be an interesting direction to move the deck in, although switching to Golgari or at least Jund would probably be necessary. Black gives you access to graveyard interaction that benefits cards like Hatchery Spider while also having a fair number of good spider cards. Some modern options for such a deck are Arasta of the Endless Web, Graverobber Spider, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Nyx Weaver, Rotwidow Pack, Chainweb Aracnir, Twin-Silk Spider, Spider Spawning, Blex, Vexing Pest  Flip, Renowned Weaver, Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Obelisk of Urd, and Coat of Arms.

If you are more interested in staying red, one option is to focus on your combat tricks with cards that like being targeted. Silverfur Partisan and Zada, Hedron Grinder are a great pair for such a deck. Cheap buffs with bonus effects like Confront the Unknown and Expedite work well in such a shell, as do cards that care about having many creatures like Might of the Masses.

MurrSheep: Thanks for the upvote and the comment. Regarding your suggestions: Hidden Spider is interesting, but it's hard to find room for a one-drop that doesn't me help me get delirium online by itself. It's still definitely worth remembering. I recently kicked Penumbra Spider for Rotwidow Pack. While the former has better stats, the latter can help me win the game. So I'll pass there.

Updated: added 2x Rotwidow Pack and one Hatchery Spider to make it work with the graveyard a bit more as a lot of cards end up there with Nyx Weaver
