Bloodgift Demon Discussion

Just some quick suggestions:
I would recommend more card draw so you're not top-decking all the time. (The more cards you draw, the more answers you have.)
I like to aim for around 12 total:
Bloodgift Demon
Decree of Pain
Erebos, God of the Dead
Promise of Power
Ambition's Cost
Ancient Craving
Disciple of Bolas is especially good if you sac a big rat.

I would also recommend more removal cards, I typically aim around 20 give or take (which includes both noncreature and creature removal).
Nevinyrral's Disk
Hero's Downfall
Decree of Pain
Archfiend of Depravity
Butcher of Malakir
Sorin Markov

I also recommend good return spells including:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
Sheoldred, Whispering One

I think you should not build around Rakdos' ability too much. If you put in too many high casting cost creatures you'll be dead in the water if Rakdos gets answered (and he will get answered). Putting too much stock in Rakdos' ability is a mistake, and that is what is making your deck clunky (resulting in you feeling like you have issues balancing your deck, when the actual issue is that you are placing your eggs in a fragile basket)

Instead, build a solid BR midrange deck with a normal mana curve. Treat Rakdos as a undercosted beater that gives you mana discounts when you deal damage. Put in the efficient 5-mana dragons and demons and make them the mainstay of your force. Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon(helps you trigger Rakdos), Indulgent Tormentor...Glorybringer, Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite.. these will not rot in your hand when Rakdos gets answered, and are credible threats on their own. They are still good with Rakdos - swinging with Rakdos and playing two 5-drops for 4 mana is still an explosive play.

I would swap Indulgent Tormentor for Bloodgift Demon. You want the draw to be guaranteed when you need it!

I would fit Conqueror's Galleon  Flip in there somewhere. The card flips to Conqueror's Foothold, giving you recursion for spells and artifacts, not just creatures.

I assume Bloodgift Demon being in the list was a mistake?

Starke of Rath is on-theme, although removing stuff might lead to less choice overall

I assumed you've already discounted Seizan, Perverter of Truth & Nekusar, the Mindrazer as alternatives to Bloodgift Demon?

There's a few toys I'd recommend: For your Sunforger package, Tithe and Mistveil Plains are certainly worth looking for. A good backup would be Enlightened Tutor and Reito Lantern of you can't afford those two. I run all four for good measure, though, lol. I'd also add Anguished Unmaking and Hide / Seek for extra utility.

As for additional critters, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder and Bloodgift Demon are ridiculously good. Though I don't run her myself, Resplendent Angel also looks pretty yummy, especially if you have enough lifelinkers like Baneslayer Angel and Archangel of Thune. Utvara Hellkite and Scourge of Valkas are also hilarious, especially together.

My biggest recommendation, though is that you try and streamline that mana curve with more low-cost beaters.
