Rakdos decks are the best kind of decks to abuse hellbent and madness cards, not just in the "power at any cost" color themes, but the flavor and playstyle as well :p

Examples

Anthem of Rakdos

Gibbering Descent

Infernal Tutor

Asylum Visitor

Murderous Compulsion

Necrogen Mists

Bottomless Pit

It does seem hurtful at first, but trust me opponents will feel it a lot more especially if you just cast Oppression and pass turn to a storm, control, combo or tempo player or any blue player itll cripple them :p

To think like a madman, you must PLAY like a madman :p

lilgiantrobot on My First EDH - King Macar Discard

Syphon Mind effects are better than making one player discard. The Unnerve in your maybe board is almost always going to be better than Despise since you're going against multiple people. Other cheap discard option are Miasmic Mummy, Rotting Rats, Sibsig Icebreakers, Cunning Lethemancer, Bottomless Pit, and Stronghold Rats. Waste Not is a few bucks right now, but is so much value for you.

How does someone playing Bulls on Parade - Neheb $40 Budget Minotaurs recoup from discard spells like Bottomless Pit, Delirium Skeins , Malfegor and Sire Of Insanity?

I'm interested in the deck, but there doesn't seem to be enough card draw to offset the aforementioned disadvantage.

Mass discard is a "mean" strategy, and I think you may have built this list afraid to be the villain. It looks like you tried to hybrid an aggressive deck and a cruel control deck, and those don't really work together. First thing I would do is slow down the deck, and put in more longevity.

A lot of your discard is low-impact. Black Cat, for example, only makes one opponent discard once. Why not play, for example, Hypnotic Specter, which can hit multiple times. In addition, I would add things that benefit off of discard, like Liliana's Caress, Sangromancer, Geth's Grimoire, and Waste Not. Symmetrical effects are a little harder to build around, but things like Sire Of Insanity, Oppression, and Bottomless Pit can really get your job done faster. Notion Thief can prevent your opponents from refilling their hand, and Torment of Hailfire is a good finisher from HOU.

In addition, Tymaret already wants you to have tokens, so I would beef up that sub-theme, adding things like Ophiomancer and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Tokens would keep you alive longer, and would allow you to play things like Sadistic Hypnotist and Mind Slash. If you have fodder lying around a lot, Pox and Death Cloud hurt you a lot less than your opponents.

A cruel control theme is not an easy way to make friends at the table, but playing a lot of spite cards can make people reluctant to attack you. Mind Twisting for 7 or having Attrition on the board will stick with people (and, if your budget is bigger, No Mercy).

My bad! Didn't see it in the custom categories. Maybe Bottomless Pit?

DarkLaw I think it looks interesting at least because it says "nonland" casting this after a boardwipe essentially means 3 times X dmg. Having everyone at zero cards in hand isn't too hard to achieve in a mono b deck either, with stuff like Delirium Skeins, Bottomless Pit, Mind Twist, Necrogen Mists...I think I'll try it in my deck with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed
