I actually put Mindwrack Liege in the deck as a last-minute addition, given that I had nothing else to include in the first place, so I’ll take it out. Thanks for the tip about Hunted Horror, it would really work well with Thing in the Ice; including black also allows me to include other black horrors, like maybe Kederekt Parasite as an early creature, although many of my red horrors come down later, and Cryptborn Horror , although that may be a little redundant in this deck. In regards to the mana base, I am trying to keep this deck somewhat budget, but I will probably need to use fetchlands if I go Grixis. But overall, thanks for the help!

You could use discard, since you already have Faithless Looting and , probably has the best madness cards in; Fiery Temper / Alms of the Vein.

You could go for Minotaur tribal, fitting with Fanatic of Mogis and Mogis, God of Slaughter, run cards like Bloodrage Brawler / Neheb, the Worthy. Vampire tribal is also an option; Stromkirk Captain.

Or you could maximise devotion, simply by running lots of cards like Avatar of Discord or Cryptborn Horror, similar to where you are now.

What I will say is that Fists of the Demigod, isn't a good idea, it gives your opponent an easy 2-for-1 by killing the creature. I'd replace it for now with Curse of Stalked Prey, though that could change depending on your deck style. I guess this is really over to you now, what sort of deck is it you want to build? Hope this helps a little, I'll happily add more if you want to head in a particular direction...

Hey there! I'm here to try and help your deck grow and develop a strategy, because at the moment your deck looks like a Singleton Creature-Only deck, no offence intended.

First off, Angrath is a terrific include, try and run 2 more. What I think you should develop here is a light control build that forces players to Discard while you swing in to bring the win in. You need some more consistency, so try and run 4-3 of each copy I suggest. First off, Playset of Blightning. It'll keep your opponents down and deal some damage. Inquisition of Kozilek is good, but a tad pricey, so save up for a playset too. Cryptborn Horror looks like it could really be the star of the show here. Essentially your strategy would be to deal tons of damage in a single turn while your opponents doesn't have anything to respond with (Due to you forcing them to discard), and then play Cryptborn Horror and have a huge threat your opponent can't deal with. To make Cryptborn work, you'll want to run 4 Lightning Bolts, and some creatures that hit in for damage very quickly, something maybe like Reckless Bushwhacker. Duress could be good too if you can't afford Thoughtseize. Remember, the information that these cards give you by letting you see your opponent's hand is very important, because you can anticipate what they'll do. Run more of Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, she's great in this. Okay, so you'll want more removal than just Lightning Bolt, so putting in a playset of Fatal Push will be a good idea. Other than that, running Dragonskull Summit and Graven Cairns will mean you won't have troubles with the wrong color of mana.

Hero of Bladehold, Ogre Battledriver, Accorder Paladin, Cryptborn Horror, Goblin Wardriver, Akroan Hoplite, Goblin Rabblemaster, Mardu Ascendancy might be good inclusions in a hyper aggessive deck. Have played with Battledriver and Bladehold before, disgusting amounts of damage

Aside from the other suggestions I'd take out hellcarver demon, defiler of souls,around 10-12 swamps. You'll need more than five red mana sources. as a color combination Rakdos wants to do more damage than be thinking about life gain.

you'll want to add Conduit of Ruin, Cryptolith Fragment  Flip,Cryptborn Horror. Suggestions from me personally are Neheb, the Eternal, Conduit of Storms  Flip,NighthowlerOb Nixilis, Unshackled,Maralen of the Mornsong.
