Discard your hand. Search your library for three cards and put those cards into your hand. Then shuffle your library.
Behold the Beyond Discussion

Dredge4life thanks for that xD
Okay, so that makes sense, I assume I could use Leyline of Anticipation , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , Behold the Beyond finding Show and Tell , Omniscience and Enter the Infinite as well as a Counterspell . Pretty easy win from there. Beacon of Tomorrows , Time Stop , Spellbook , Narset's Reversal , God-Pharaoh's Statue , Elixir of Immortality , and a ton of Islands to cast Show and Tell .

There is a lot here. It is not that I think your deck is bad, just some options. Rakdos is my favorite guild and I have been considering a Rakdos deck for a while now.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion combo is pretty good in this deck. Both cards help a lot on their own, Triskelion is colorless so you can potentially cast him for free on top of being able to trigger damage to cast Rakdos. Mikaeus can help recur you Eldrazi. If you do 6 damage in a turn ( 1 swing with you commander ) you can cast the combo for 3 black.
If you don't want to combo. You still may want to pick up more targeted clear. Bedevil and Unlicensed Disintegration . Kaervek's Purge is potentially another good one if a player is buffing their creatures.
Illicit Auction can generate a ton of value, either stealing good creature or getting an opponent to spend a lot of life.
You may also want to throw in a Burnished Hart . You can potentially use it as a turn 2/3 creature to get a swing in turn 3/4 to allow Rakdos cast. It also has the added benefit of potentially being cast for free.
Neheb, the Eternal also has some good synergy considering you have several X cost spells.
I forget the names but there are several lands that do damage upon entering.
Mogis doesn't especially synergize with the deck as his damage is during other players turns and you have so much colorless it will be difficult to get him to 7. ( Commander + Mogis does get 6 though )
Ramp: Maybe replace some of your lands with ramp. Tutors/Draw: I would try to squeeze in 2/3 more tutors and 2/3 more draw cards. Behold the Beyond can cause scoops if used on a turn where you have done ~10 damage. And 10 damage isn't too much in this deck.
A lot of this also depends on your play group.

No problem kgmoneylove! If your looking for a tutor replacement instead of Behold the Beyond , you might be better off with Dark Petition as most likely you will trigger the spell mastery by than. Ancestral Vision is also another great 0 drop that you can hit off that will do work as well as Lotus Bloom !

Well, when going for the CMDR kill, Mesmeric Orb is the card of dreams, where other cards aren't bad, like Vicious Rumors, they don't do enough to warrant me wanting their inclusion without the commander.
What should be kept is a lot of tutors, to fetch different cards, as well as a lot of ramp. Then a reasonably large hand disruption package, and finishing the deck off with some combos, and cards that do a ton to swing the board in your favor.
Unsure of your budget, and the power level you want, here are the cards I would add to increase the competitiveness of the deck:
(On a budget? Do nothing with the lands!)
Draw: Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, and Asylum Visitor (can top cards you don't want to discard), Library of Leng (tops cards you don't want to discard again... but in a different way), Necropotence
(On a budget? use control elements like Doom Blade, and removal in black instead of stax, some of the more budget stax is okay, but generally the more layered stax the better, so the less the worse each is. Removal is a good replacement.)
Vicious Rumors, Abyssal Nocturnus, Fell Specter, Guul Draz Specter, Herald of Anguish, Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Reaver, Myojin of Night's Reach, Needle Specter, Scythe Specter, Sewer Nemesis, Stronghold Rats, Wei Night Raiders, Whispering Specter, Ghoulcaller's Bell, Darksteel Plate, Ordeal of Erebos, Raiders' Wake, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Anvil of Bogardan, Putrefaction, Painful Quandary, Megrim, Fraying Omnipotence, Rise of the Dark Realms, Torment of Hailfire, Liliana Vess.
Not sorry about the long comment ;)

Nice visuals, and the background is Behold the Beyond, which I love. Btw can you tell how to alter the visuals for a deck?

I baked you a little flavour. Which flavour, you ask? FLAVOUR FLAVOUR!!!
I just pondered with the possible shards or wedges. So the pseudo howling mine is colourless. Flying is blue, and "defender because gargoyle" is a white thing. The activated ability is a pretty red thing to do as it feels very impulsive. This guy definitely isn't a jeskai card though. Black has discard as a cost, but discarding your whole hand isn't that usual. It exists on cards like Behold the Beyond though.So making the card esper is a bending, but not a breaking. Still, a 4/4 for cmc4 with these abilities seems weird.
How about this:
Turiel, the Gemshaper
Legendary Artifact Creature - Gargoyle
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws an additional card.
Discard your hand: Until end of turn, Turiel, the Gemshaper gains flying and may attack as though it didn't have defender.
I left it at 4/4 but put the unconditional flying away. Also, now it costs cmc5 and is lrgendary. Thoughts?
