Destroy all Islands.

Rant - That is a point I will concede to.
I would argue that Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast are a little better being that their only one mana, and that they can destroy a blue permanent as well. The deck doesn't need to be true control for them to be able to work. Not every blue deck plays enough islands for Boil or Boiling Seas to truly make a difference, but every blue deck will play some sort of blue permanent, or a counter or two.
Either way, you have any possible suggestions for the deck? Anything you can think of that may go well with the deck/theme?

First off, thanks for the compliment and glad it could make your day!
Secondly, not at all. I have no problem spreading the pure hatred that is Rakdos. Hope you destroy all of your opponents and make them bow to your power!

Busse nice on Followed Footsteps. I forgot about that. I gotta look closer at the last few comments after work, but Winterblast I took a quick look at your deck and saw Armageddon. Gotta add that. I'm also going to run Boil, and just not run any actual islands. Haha this deck is going to be so mean.

APPLE01DOJ- I think pairing red with blue would give you the best land hate cards in modern. Blood Moon, Molten Rain, and Crumble to Dust along with the blue enchantments and counterspells seems better than adding green. You could then combo your blue enchantments with a Boil for awesome land hate lol. I often play RG Ponza in modern and can attest to how great LD can be :)

A friend in my playgroup runs Boil in his deck. Although it's more so a middle finger to blue than a direct answer.

Winterblast, our group seems to have a gentleman's agreement on the sideboard at this point. No specific color hate, no color specific MLD to side in, and no one plays cards that people hate playing against, even in the sideboard. We all side things that are powerful counters to deck archetypes, answers to specific game states that are recurrent but not common, and ways to slightly shift the focus of each deck to better handle certain match ups. Generic graveyard hate or Pyroblast is OK, but Karma or Boil is out. This keeps the powerful cards that are infrequently used out of the main deck, but allows each deck to overcome bad match ups when they pop up, without playing unfun cards. The sideboard should be a storehouse of bombs and answers that you usually don't want to draw, but occasionally would love to have. In this case, Wishes can actually speed up games because the sideboard does not need to be used until it is needed in game, and then it is quick to access what is needed. No tough decisions about what to side in or out delaying the start of a game. What you need is either in the sideboard or it's not, and you know you need it because the game is underway and you now need it. I think that a sideboard is a nice way to make Wishes more fun and work better, and Wishes are a nice way to make a sideboard more fun and work better. I think I would want both if I had either.
MegaMatt13, I anticipate our change will be very similar. I think that it will be a good thing. For our group, infinite combos are frowned on, Stax is considered unfun and frowned on, specific color hate is frowned on, and outside of my 8 year old son, MLD is frowned on. Even for my son, I have recently snuck the MLD out of his deck without him paying attention. Even that was after he had multiple games where he played an Armageddon and I responded with Boros Charm to win the game. We have not banned any of these things, but our polite unspoken agreement has been that no one likes playing against them, so no one brings decks in these styles. The Sol Ring has been our first ban, and no one had fun against an explosive Sol Ring powered win, no one felt really great after winning on the back of an early Sol Ring, but no one wanted to be the only person to depower their deck, because it is the best at what it does. So we talked, and now I think we are all happier that it is gone.
