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.

Cryptborn is one of those cards that should be awesome, but I find it falls flat when I do draw it because I haven't made it to the point where I can deal out damage, or it just becomes a win more card. I might change my mind on this later, but Demonic Tutor is likely going to outperform it handily.

I considered both early on actually..

The Cryptborn Horror is a rather conditional win-more card..

Avatar of Discord on the other hand, would be absolutely beastly in a dedicated Madness or Torpor Orb deck, but is strictly card disadvantage in anything else..

I know it's probably been a while, bit how do you feel about Cryptborn Horror or Avatar of Discord?

-Ugh. Selfless Spirit. Commence nightmares.

-Altar of Dementia and Millstone are interesting choices. You can target yourself to load up your graveyard.

-Some creature ideas. I'm pretty sure these work, since their base power is 0, and they don't get the counters until they enter the battlefield:

Enjoy your brewing!

Personally, with the amount of burn you've got going on here... Cryptborn Horror could be a great finisher.
