Hey, you asked for my help.
I'm not a fan of Eldrazi or five color therefore my advice will be in one area you could improve your deck. Consider more repeatable draw sources? Sources of draw that you don't have to pay any mana to draw cards. Creatures are a big part of your deck therefore consider enchantments that draw when a creature you control ETB?
Ascendancy can also give big Eldrazi as well as Morophon haste which makes them more of threats especially with annihilator. Skullclamp is good with 0/1 Eldrazi tokens since equipping one kills it or sac the spawn for mana drawing two cards. These are less expensive price repeatable draw sources, but there's more powerful sources if you're willing to spend more.
Willing to spend even more:

Good luck with your deck.

Great start! I think that you could improve consistency by adding some tutors and card draw. Most of your card draw is conditional and I can see this deck running out of steam if you are delayed a turn due to removal.
You have many options to ping opponents to get Rakdos on the board and some great payoff options. Perhaps you could exchange some of the pingers and enablers for Tutors and Draw. In particular Flayer Drone , Loyal Subordinate , and Stalking Vengeance could be replaced.

Ok, so after playtesting and trying out various different ideas I've pretty much decided this doesn't really work. I did discover that digging cards like Ancient Stirrings and Commune with Nature and cantrips like Dissenter's Deliverance and Edge of Autumn are a really fun way to put together combos though, so I've changed to the Brood Monitor / Eldrazi Displacer combo. This is better as it has more redundancy (Emrakul's Hatcher can replace Brood Monitor and either Flayer Drone or Altar of the Brood can be the win condition). This also means that virtually all combo pieces can be found by Ancient Stirrings (except Emrakul's Hatcher but Commune with Nature can still grab that if need be).
Its quite consistent and can usually assemble the combo by Turn 5.

Any further advice would be greatly appreciated. And thanks again to everyone who has helped out so far...

I found a problem with recognising certain cards in inventory, thus it disables the possibility of adding them into collection.

I recommend Sky Scourer over Kozilek's Sentinel - the flying is far more important the extra points of toughness; you want to be all about getting damage through, not blocking! I'd also recommend Reaver Drone over the Sludge Crawler since he's more aggressive. You don't want to be paying mana to make your guy bigger when you could be playing another creature instead. You could try to have both for a more aggressive curve, though. Flayer Drone is also worth including, he gives you some extra reach even if your opponent has the board locked down.

nice deck but missing some stuff
- Molten Nursery pretty much everysingle colorless thing you cast can deal damage to creatures or opponent's
- Emrakul's Influence just cast your eldrazi two card draw
- Kozilek's Return need a third board sweep well here it is.
- Not of This World wow this is not in if they try to get rid of you big guy(s) this can counter it. FOR FREE!
- Corrupted Crossroads this is not in your deck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74hA6Q7vPI4why.... honestly why... ITS A RAINBOW MANA PRODUCER FOR ALL THE ELEDRAZIS!!!!!!
- Flayer Drone same thing as the nursey but this is etb trigger on creatures so throw in Brood Monitor then you can do infinite damage with Eldrazi Displacer
- It That Betrays *facepalm* why in earths name is this not in if you All Is Dust with this on the field its instantaneously all over for your opponents you just stole every single thing they have.
- Deepfathom Skulker card draw and makes eldrazis unblockable
- Void Attendant exploit the cituation on all of the exiled cards for mana (don't do a sacrifice focused deck though.)
- Brood Butcher nice removal for the small creatures particually keeping Gaddock Teeg from ever seeing the light of the battlefield
- you have the banner (creatures get +1/+1 for each creature that shares a type) so scion/spawn producers is a must Brood Monitor, Blight Herder, Rapacious One, Drowner of Hope, Emrakul's Hatcher, Skittering Invasion and Sifter of Skulls.
- you have From Beyond go get the other one Awakening Zone
- Ashnod's Altar lets change the scions/spawns mana from 1 to 2 shall we.
- last but not least a top secret staple card nobody even bothers to put in stranglely Spreading Plague you just cast korona thne you just lock out anybody from getting creatures on the board and heres the kicker your beautiful eldrazis get untouched by this because devoid means they are colorless and its not a color.
oh heres a bonus if your willing to breath deep and do this but the Gisela, the Broken Blade and Bruna, the Fading Light for a loop hole of getting somewhat two white eldrazi since this can turn into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares
so those are my suggestions

My only concern with Flayer Drone is its susceptibility to extremely cheap and efficient removal paired with the fact that it is a 3-drop. I have been considering it, I just don't know where it would slot in... That being said, Dust Stalker has the same issue with removal (but it's one of my favorites). I know the whole "dies to Doom Blade" argument is pretty meh, but I feel it is quite relevant in this instance. I wish the drone was a little bit beefier. The drain effect and first strike are quite good though.
I'll have to mull it over a bit.
