I have found playing with Seizan normally hits your life total hard. I suggest adding more lifegain.
See if you can replace existing cards with ones that do the same effect but gain life EX: Death Wind --> Battle at the Bridge

How reliable is the mana base for this deck? And considering the release of Bolas and it being tri-color and expensive as fuck, what do you think about Prophetic Prism and/or Cryptolith Fragment Flip?

Think about adding a Blightsteel Colossus as a target for Kuldotha Forgemaster when you have 5 artifcats out as as it's an articate glissa it fits into your deck synergyAnd while Beseech the Queen is good, in commander i would rather run Demonic Tutor over it anyday snice it doesn't come with any draw backs or rescritions. and if possible use Vampiric TutorSeeing you have Darksteel Forge + Unwinding Clock i think you should add another one to your mix Mycosynth Lattice
This Memnarch + Mycosynth Lattice combo would mean you dont need blue mana to use Memnarch ablilties which if used with the Lattice you can steal any perment on the board, including your oppents commanders if they become a pain. if your worred about not having blue just incase something happens to the lattice , there are many mana fixing cards such as Cryptolith Fragment Flip City of Brass Exotic Orchard Mirrodin's Core Alloy Myr Lotus Valeand Mana ConfluenceI would recommend getting a few more artificat lands and using lotus vale so you can sac them and use Glissa, the Traitor ability to bring them back just because you dont run red, white and blue doesn't mean you can't use the colored mana they give you to pay for your gerenic mana costs. your more interested in the fact they are artificatsI think you can get rid of Crypt Ghast and use Gaea's Cradle instead, or you can use them both there isn't really one over the other. just creatures are much more easly removed compared to lands.Now snice we are playing with artificats, i know this is away from the reanimator purpose of this deck. but if you include Mindslaver well with this you can control a player for the whole game. it's quite simple. you play this, sac it as soon as possible, take control of player mess them up by wasting their mana abilities and spells, attack with any creature that can attack, Glissa, the Traitor murders it you can Mindslaver back in your hand, rise and repeat.Finnally just a small question, Where is your Sol Ring?

So, proposed edit list
I ran a list with a similar number of ramp spells to make Sen Triplets work, and 3-drop artifacts are really hard on your early game. 2-drops curve out so nicely in comparison. Here are a few changes on that note:
Lose: Tormenting Voice for Cathartic Reunion. I've run both and if your hand is sad enough to want to blow mana on card advantage, you probably want to cycle as much hand as possible. If budget allows, Wheel of Fortune is oodles better, or the "miracle" wheel the name of which I cannot remember.
Lightning Reaver because awesome for multiplayer.
Coldsteel Heart Is a great rock for 2 mana. Take a look at your artifact base when all the edits are done and see where/if you can fit it.
Scorched Ruins is an amazing way to hedge mana against Rakdos if your meta isn't blowing up targeted lands. Or if you have a crucible... ;)
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is so incredibly badass when you're connecting with demons. No backswing to worry about, and more damage to your opponents. In multiplayer this guy is king.
Necropotence suits the suicidey theme and refills your hand better than any card in the game.
Rakdos, Lord of Riots I think is really good in this deck.
Give Larceny some consideration after playing the deck a bit. See how much your demons are actually connecting. Great value.
Pain Magnification is a solid include given all your flying shenanigans.

You are off to a great start on a fun looking deck! Since your "tribe" has little in common besides being all creatures I would add in some "anthem" styled pump spells like Dictate of Heliod, Collective Blessing, Marshal's Anthem, Spear of Heliod, Gaea's Anthem, and Glorious Anthem. After that I was looking at your mana base. I know you are interested in making the deck as close to 100% on-theme as possible.... but I think you should add in a bunch of 5c mana rocks like Astral Cornucopia, Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, Darksteel Ingot, Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Commander's Sphere, Manalith, Vessel of Endless Rest, and Cultivator's Caravan to help you cast some spells before you die to mana screw. Especially with a mana base of all basics, some colorless mana fixing seems crucial. Happy gathering!!

Some cards you might want to consider:
Mana Rocks: Even in a two color deck, RRBB is hard to get on turn 4. Chromatic Lantern helps with that. Similarly, you might want some cheap mana rocks like Rakdos Signet, Fire Diamond, and Charcoal Diamond.
Early damage: You have some good creatures to make sure Rakdos comes down early, but I might also recommend some noncreature sources of early damage. Things like Seal of Fire and lim-dl's hex so you can still have something if someone drops an early wipe. I don't know how many times you've played Rakdos so far looking at how long this deck has been here, but you're the early threat in most games. Your opponents will try to stop you early.
Also, I'd recommend Heartless Hidetsugu. It's nuts in this deck.
Also also, speaking of protection, I'd suggest Lightning Greaves. The more things you have to make sure Rakdos doesn't die, the better. Because nothing sucks more than having him killed at the end of your combat step.
Card draw: Black and Red have some great card draw opportunities. Stuff like Disciple of Bolas and Knollspine Dragon work great in a deck like this. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is a perfect add as well. Nothing is quite as good as playing Rune-Scarred Demon for Kozilek and then playing Disciple of Bolas to sac Kozi. That's 16 beautiful cards in one turn. Bloodgift Demon would also work well because it's a cheap attacker that either draws cards or guarantees damage.
Colorless creatures: In general I'd try to stay away from anything with more than 2 mana symbols in its cost. There are exceptions like Dread Cacodemon, but Rakdos works best when you can slam down as many creatures as possible.
Some stuff to consider removing:
Winter Orb: A fantastic idea, actually, and one I didn't think about previously. But right now since most of your creatures have multiple mana symbols, I think it's hurting you. But bravo for thinking of this. I'm totally going to steal this tech.
Feel free to look at my list for other ideas. It's definitely a "Go Big or Go Home" deck, but I love it.
