RIP Simian Spirit Guide. May he rest in peace.

Have you tried Koth of the Hammer? I used to run one in my old mono red prison deck and he was quite strong.

1 Void Mirror in the sideboard would also probably be a good idea since it also hates on etron and elementals in addition to the other stuff chalice shuts down.

Some thoughts:

  • almost all decks with Lurrus, run Mishra's Bauble. At the moment, you don’t have many good targets for Lurrus.

  • Decks i’ve seen running Force of Negation usually don’t run more than 2ish, as the card disadvantage from playing multiple can start to hurt. But i assume running 4 is still fine most of the time.

  • I’d swap out Drown in the Loch for Counterspell. You don’t have many ways to fill an opponents grave, and you already have plenty of ways to kill creatures, so an unconditional counter seems more practical here (especially if you’re concerned about big stuff like Murktide).

  • having Chalice of the Void AND Void Mirror in the sideboard feels excessive, you probably only need one of these, unless your entire meta is cascading into Living End

magwaaf and wallisface, thank you both for the comments.

magwaaf, here is the explanation for the sideboard cards: Damping Sphere for tron + storm, Fog for any aggro decks, Gaea's Blessing for mill, Negate for combo + control, Tormod's Crypt for any decks that rely on graveyards (Dragon's Rage Channeler and stuff), Void Mirror for cascade decks, and Tombstalker and Gurmag Angler just to change up the threats in the deck.

wallisface in my playtesting of the deck, the mill cards have been pretty consistent. I agree that sorcery speed cards aren't good in a control deck, however I like Chart a Course because I both draw and discard, and it's the only discard effect. I'll do some research on some instant speed looting effects. I run 3 of each of the creatures so I'm less likely to draw them, and for room for other cards. I'm so dumb, I love both Bone Shards and Collective Brutality, I can't believe I forgot about them! You're probably right about the lands. I'll playtest with all the cards you suggested, thanks!

Would recommend Void Mirror for the Tron matchups, is also brutal against decks with the Cascade mechanic

After a few weeks of playing at different stores I put Raven's Crime at 4 copies. Many games the opponent has lands on thier hand and only raven's crime and Funeral Charm get those in the graveyard. Funeral charm is best in a meta with Ragavan & Dragons rage channeler. Other than that it's lack luster. Castle Locthwain is great at 1 copy, the investment is pretty heavy, essentially you are committing 4 lands for the draw ability. Solid list. The only real suggestion is for the sideboard, Void Mirror for Tron and Cascade decks and Torpor Orb for any deck using Ephemerate

I feel Void Mirror would be underwhelming, especially because they need to rely on generic mana for it to actually be good.

Yeah, 2/24 lands allow you to play 16 of your creatures when you name Eldrazi, but every other card in your deck would be dead, especially if you didn't happen to have one of those 2 lands in your opening hand.

I'm just saying it might be worth considering a basic Swamp or something. You produce colorless with basically all of your lands, so you don't really need a basic that does colorless as much (still need Wastes for Blood Moon since at least Expedition Map is another virtual 4 copies of Wastes).

For instance you could replace 1 Wastes with literally any other basic land, then you could pre-play Expedition Map and crack it with any mana to find the singular colored mana source that would allow you to play around Void Mirror with all of your artifacts etc.

The best basic land for your current decklist is probably Swamp since it lets you pay 2 less life for Dismember if desired.

You might want to consider diversifying your landbase/mana-production a little, as Void Mirror is a decent sideboard choice now, especially since a lot of decks are running Karn, the Great Creator and can basically play it 'mainboard' without it being a dead draw.

It also doesn't seem like you have too many answers for 'silver bullet' types of cards like that in the sideboard, which could take the form of artifacts, creatures, or enchantments (don't think there's any planeswalkers you need to worry about). You have decent answers for creatures, but troublesome artifacts/enchantments don't seem to have any answers in your sideboard.

For example, there's also Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon in a lot of red decks which slow you down considerably, but aren't quite as winning on the spot.
