If you would flip a coin, instead flip two coins and ignore one.
Krark's Thumb Discussion

Hey there! The only quick suggestion I have is Krark's Thumb to help with the coin flips.

Well I can see two big problems with your deck- but only two.
1) Ramp. Yes, the fellow above commented on it, figured I'd belabor the point. Armillary Sphere , Burnished Hart , Mycosynth Wellspring , Pilgrim's Eye , Renegade Map , and Wayfarer's Bauble are all good ramp spells.
I also feel your commander should definitely be Rakdos, the Showstopper . You appear to be a fan of chance and of shaking up the board state- that is, rocking the board state violently. You could put in a copy of Krark's Thumb and just roll with that. I don't see you getting much value out of the price reduction until you already have a few demons out.
Now, if you want any suggestions on cards to cut feel free to ask, but a lot of people don't take that super well so I'll hold off until I've got the OK.

@DrValium My playgroup kind of has an interesting history with boompile, so I tend to avoid it unless I have a Daretti, Scrap Savant as my commander. I do like Lethal Vapors though but I am pretty sure I won't get to cards like that until I finish play testing other cards I have. (Haven't been able to meet up with playgroup recently)
@metalevolence That is mostly due to me having cards lying around that I haven't been able to use in a while. I am moving cards around to play test other things but haven't had a chance to meet up with my playgroup recently to try them out. I honestly will likely take those out and add a little more ramp or something to curve out the deck a bit better. I will definitely figure it out when I have more opportunity to play again.
@mtgmidget You should honestly try out Mirror March . It is more of a pet card that I threw in since I was going to toss a Krark's Thumb in anyway but it ended up being very fun to use. It is really fun using it with etb effects or even with something as simple as a Hellrider . Captive Audience also surprised me with how flavorful it felt with the style of deck. If you want to try out some cards for fun definitely worth throwing the few quarters in for em. I also really liked the Decoction Module suggestion because there were a couple energy cards I was looking into anyway.

I personally don't feel the new Rakdos is competitive. If anyone can prove me wrong, cool. Either way, he is a lot of fun. What I did with mine is create a "Russian Roullete" themed deck. It's very casual, cheesy board wipes, and some of my own minions are not immune to Rakdos Roullete. He's a lot of fun. Here are some useful picks you might want to consider.
Basically, blink Rakdos. :) If you find any others, please let me know. Here is the link to my version.
No graveyard recursion whatsoever, just a bunch of demons, some other useful critters. Some devils, imps. Somewhat refined draw, and a stupid amount of ramp. I saw the cost of Rakdos, and demons, and decided they needed to become affordable ASAP. Built for fun. It gets those demons out though, so you don't necessarily have to cut demons, in fact, because of Liliana's Contract being so cheap right now, I'd take advantage of that if you already haven't. Also, Revel in Riches ..... Running my version, you are basically playing Rakdos Roullette, again and again hehe. Mirror March looks interesting. I am considering Krark's Thumb for mine.
Be careful playing Painful Quandary! If you don't have a ton of discard to support that card, you can get targeted really fast. I run it in my Gonti's suicide hotline deck.
My Rakdos is either hilariously effective against something, or ridiculously ineffective. But, as a lover of board wipes, he is a ton of fun. I may consider Mirror March for my version, so thank you for sharing. Look through my creatures though! There are some fantastic demons that make the ramp worth it. I've got a pretty good ramp package too, so check that out as well.
