Blightning deals 3 damage to target player. That player discards two cards.

APPLE01DOJ, This is my current brew. All the changes are with cards I actually have, except for The Rack which I have proxies of until I pick up the rest of the stuff I want to change. I was thinking Chittering Rats would swap out with Blightning. I will also be picking up Lavaclaw Reaches.
What do you think of this build so far? Feel free to pick it apart.

Ensnaring Bridge isn't needed at all but having it will give you more time to get your racks & their hand size in check. That being said, it will also draw out games exceedingly long.
Liliana of the Veil is quite crucial to the deck, she acts as the engine of the deck, she's your "way out" against locks and she'll steal you wins on a regular basis. I would slowly invest in her but if it's just not going to happen then you could try filling her slot with some Kolaghan's Command and Blightning. Necrogen Mists is effective but suffers from timing.
Honestly, you should brew up a list and post it here. I'll be happy to help you tweak it.

In all honesty I'm not certain that Harsh Scrutiny and Duress are up to speed if you're playing aggro. I get the benefits, but you want to pump out creatures quick and hit with them before your opponent gets the chance to stabilise.
Consider Blightning instead of Rakdos's Return. It's at about 0.70 a piece right now and for CMC 3 you get 3 damage and 2 discard instead of just a value of 1 for X meaning 1 damage and 1 discard. Blightning is more cost-efficient and especially in aggro you want to hit hard and fast, not wait until you can pump up your spell to X=6 or 7.
I run a similar list and included Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and some extra unleash creatures such as Gore-House Chainwalker. The second fits the hell theme quite well, and should it be dead, attack with Alesha, tap two black mana and you've got an extra 3/2 swinging out from your graveyard. Of course she can bring back the Gifted Aetherborn as well for a sudden deathtouch getting in for 2.
Another 2-drop to consider is Ash Zealot for both first strike and haste, and depending on who you play against some great graveyard hate, but even without that this is a nice hitter for turn two.

Some suggestions. First, you should probably replace Falkenrath Noble with Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist. Next, I'd honestly run the under appreciated Nephalia Academy. If there's anything I've learned from Tolarian Academy, it's that the word "academy" translates to "good card". You want the academy for those pesky Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize runners, as well as Blightning and Pain Magnification. I don't see the need for transmute in this deck. Those two cards specifically search for exactly 3 CMC. Not one of your combo pieces costs 3.
Anyway, neat idea! I can see this becoming a very popular (very budget) deck. Best of luck friend!

I'm liking what I see, though I don't understand Thought Scour. I'd personally use something with more burn value than fatal push, so I'd main board some combination of Kolaghan's Command, Blightning and Vapor Snag. 2 of each would perfectly replace the cards I quibbled over. Young Pyromancer would be a great route to go too.
