Cryptolith Fragment Discussion

Take out Anger, Ogre Battledriver, Vedalken Orrery and potentially Urabrask. The nature of Rakdos is to attack, then cast creatures with 6cmc or more off the top. Largely, hasty creatures are useless after combat. Pestilence Demon can replace Pyrohemia. I'd also drop Skull Rend, Retreat to Hagra, Read the Bones, Demonic Tutor, Unlicensed Disintegration, and Terminate. All of your mana rocks are also useless; picture the ideal scenario with any one of them: t1 Sol Ring, t2 Lobber Crew, t3 whiff...t4 Rakdos, t5 go off... t1 land, t2 Rakdos Signet, t3 Lobber Crew...t4 Rakdos, t5 go off...t1 land, t2 land, t3 Rakdos Keyrune, t4 Lobber Crew...you get the picture. There's only two worth keeping: Cryptolith Fragment Flip and Pilgrim's Eye, because they will GUARANTEE a t4 Rakdos. In all my time playing Rakdos, I've found that the most important thing is to increase the consistency of playing him on turn four. If you want any suggestions, my build is currently undergoing renovation, but still worth a looksee: Satan Said Dance.

A few other cards that would fit in flavor-wise would be Blasted Landscape and Cryptolith Fragment Flip. I'm pretty sure the second one is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's "The Color Out of Space", which is one of my favorite works by him :)

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.

take out some mountains man, you don't need 40 lands in a deck like this, i also think you should remove Cryptolith Fragment Flip because in commander, this card will rarely ever actually transform. you also can't have 2 Sol Ring so take one of those out.

No problem, mate. Just as an afterthought, though, I would switch out Cryptolith Fragment Flip for Commander's Sphere. In my experience, the late game draw has always been pretty nice. Good luck with the deck!
