Cool deck!!!
Just my two cents, When you run mill, it is important to run graveyard hate too. Otherwise your opponents playing muldrotha or Kess or the like get a big advantage for free.
Bojuka Bog is great, Nihil Spellbomb is good, Soul-Guide Lantern is good, Scavenger Grounds is a bit extreme but an option.

Starfield Mystic can be good in these sorts of decks! I'd recommend more graveyard interaction personally, but my meta's pretty graveyard heavy. Rest in Peace , Scavenger Grounds , Angel of Finality , Soul-Guide Lantern etc.

Osbert thanks for dropping an upvote and comment!

You are quite right about this list being tight--but even so I should factor in GY-ey decks as being a direct counter to my own, as you say. I think I'm going to add a Scavenger Grounds : as it doesn't require me to cut a "real" card.

Thanks for bringing that very real issue up! I'm sure I would have started playing this deck again after Covid and realized this mistake in a far more embarrassing manner than it happened here.

@Grind Thank you!

I like Scavenger Grounds , I remember playing that in standard! Will probably replace Haunted Fengraf . I've found that this deck is very hungry for untapped green mana turn one and two, so I'm hesitant to cut too much green from the deck!

I also like the other suggestions! Not sure what I would cut at this point, though Thrashing Brontodon or Kraul Harpooner might be on the block, as I'll admit they're pet cards (though pretty decent), as the other's seem like they'd be more consistent.

Cool deck!!
If you want a little more interaction for dealing with combo decks, Nature's Claim , Krosan Grip , and Force of Vigor are all decent. And Scavenger Grounds is a decent form of graveyard hate.
Also have you seen Nature's Will ? This card is sweet.

TheSlowestBro on Squee the Looter

Awesome deck, I'm a big fan of Squee both the card and the character, I thought about going a similar route when choosing which mono-red commander to go for, but in the end I had to go with my man Norin the Wary , I ofc have Squee in that deck though. But I digress.

Regarding your list, personally I'd probably add Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle , Valakut Awakening  Flip and Scavenger Grounds over a few mountains. I'd also suggest trying out Chandra Ablaze , her -3 can help you hoze everyone, yet not so hard you get hated out, and her +1 is gravy with Squee.

Looks like fun! What kinds of groups are you playing against? The landbase is always a good place to start, I'd recommend Path of Ancestry over the guildgate and Bojuka Bog / Scavenger Grounds if anyone in your playgroup interacts with graveyards. There's also plenty of great counterspell options out there, Didn't Say Please is strictly better than cancel here, but there's also SwanSong and Drown in the Loch , both of which are pretty powerful in Commander. Removal is also important to consider, there's a bunch of great kill spells that are better than Murder , but they'll depend on your playgroup. Go for the Throat , Price of Fame , Doom Blade , Spark Harvest , Heartless Act , selected based on what kinds of decks you play against. If you're going full zombie-ball, I'd recommend Coat of Arms as a duplicate Door of Destinies . If budget isn't an issue, there's Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , which is a great group-buff and recursion engine, and Patriarch's Bidding , which can give you a huge army really quick, so long as you don't have any other tribal players at the table, but if you keep their graveyards cleaned out it shouldn't be an issue.
