Creature — Ogre Shaman
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may sacrifice Blood Speaker. If you do, search your library for a Demon card, reveal that card, and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library.
Whenever a Demon enters the battlefield under your control, return Blood Speaker from your graveyard to your hand.

Blood Speaker Discussion

The important stuff goes in this order here:
- Choose targets.
- Pay costs (discard to Dream Halls).
- Spell gets cast.
- Cast triggers go on stack.
- Things resolve in last-first order if there are no responses.
- Anything that triggers from the spell resolving goes on the stack.
Blood Speaker triggering from the demon ETB happens in number 6, so it will trigger and go back to your hand.
Verdant Eidolon is in the graveyard for number 4, so it will also trigger and go back to your hand.
You can't target the card you discarded to cast Regrowth because you have to choose targets at number 1, before you discard the card at number 2.
Nice interaction on the first two though.

aha - i total misread Voidmage Husher - i thought it returned itself from the graveyard, not the battlefield.
how about - i discard Blood Speaker to Dream Halls and cast a demon card. is the blood speaker now 'in the graveyard' when the demon 'enters the battlefield'? and thus returns Blood Speaker to hand.

Tempted to remove Bad Moon just for another land. With such a high average CMC, I need those land drops. Might drop Butcher of Malakir since he almost never see's play (I'm sure that can happen with a 99 card deck haha). But I could throw in a cheaper creature on the off chance I need it. Like Pawn of Ulamog since he can be both cheap and create tokens, as well as those tokens help trigger Morbid and give me mana. Unfortunately, he doesn't care for tokens being sacrificed, unlike Butcher.

Blood Speaker is another option to tutor out Soulflayer, since the latter is a Demon. Plus, you can choose to either exile him to help pay the Delve cost, or return him to your hand to tutor another Soulflayer after the first enters the battlefield.

A number of excellent lords and tribal options that you could consider including:
Also, Descendants' Path could be a really good if you up the creature count.

Angels and Demons are always cool tribes, however I feel your deck needs more ways to accelerate getting these big fatties into play.
First, with the high CMC of most of your creatures, I would recommend mana rocks to help ramp: Orzhov Signet, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Expedition Map, and Mind Stone and Hedron Archive (which double as card draw) are all great options and relatively cheap money wise.
Gaining a ton of life is great, but in EDH there are still many ways to lose even with 100 life. However, if you use your life total as a resource/win-con, your deck can be so much more powerful. The aforementioned Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless are great, but there is also Test of Endurance, Bond of Agony, and Hatred to outright win the game. I second the inclusion of Phyrexian Arena, but Greed and Phyrexian Reclamation are additional ways to gain advantage with your life total.
Lastly (sorry for the long post), Magister of Worth and Archangel of Tithes could also be great additions. Blood Speaker, though not a demon, can tutor for demons and Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath can add to the life gain plan while making more demons. Norn's Annex can provide another Ghostly Prison effect, or you could run the less budget friendly No Mercy.

Okay! I don't have much experience with "tabletop" MTG or anything so I'm not quite sure what to suggest--I'm also not great at aggro--but I'll just throw out this archetype you might like: B/R Legacy Reanimator. It's got a lot of hate cards like Unmask and Chancellor of the Annex that you probably don't need, but the main strategy you should enjoy: reanimating Sire Of Insanity really early with Entomb and Reanimate effects.
You could easily use this strategy to get the other big Rakdos bombs on the table too, like your Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Defiler of Souls, and Prince of Thralls. Then you could supplant some of your lower end curve spells, like Blood Speaker, with some more board control like maybe Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Go for the Throat. Especially since those help trigger Prince.
You would just really need Faithless Looting and Entomb playsets to get the fatties in the GY, then playsets of Reanimate and Animate Dead to get 'em back. With new reprints it's not too expensive; you could also substitute some Entomb with Cathartic Reunion. Dark Ritual helps speed up the whole reanimation turn too and they're cheap.
Just something to consider. It seems like a very fun archetype! :)
