Leyline of the Void Discussion

Fraying Sanity triggers Alela, which can trigger Altar of the Brood. Altar of Dementia and Undercity Informer can use those faerie tokens for more mill. You can definitely make this work! There's enough synergy to make a cool, original deck.
There might be some infinite loops with Grinding Station, Alela and a certain artifact creature out there...

janushif there is no point trying to combat flash hulk. This deck is not equipped to do so. That card does not reliably come out early enough; a better card would be Leyline of the Void but even that is sketchy.

Mindshrieker could potentially be a big flyer. Patient Rebuilding? Hedonist's Trove? Chancellor of the Spires? Mind Sculpt? Leyline of the Void so everything milled is exiled instead. Ashen Powder and Extract from Darkness are always fun in my mill deck.
Then there's always the Persistent Petitioners route...

Given the name of the game here, artifacts have to be worth it. Moriok Replica, Obelisk of Urd, Staff of Nin, and Temple Bell are not and possibly Mind Stone too. If your Demon and Zombie tribes were less of a subtheme then the Obelisk might be worth it.

The bolt thing fills a slot similar to a singleton of spell snare in blue decks, not in quantity large enough to be consistent turn 1 draws or hands, but can alter the tempo of a game in narrow but crucial scenarios (turn 1 infect plays, swiftspears, or mirror). But you do make some good points that the lack of consistency leaves a bit to be desired in today's pace and meta.
As far as Snow goes I was referring to the prevalence of more snow-basics being implemented into decks as well as the rise of astrolabe. Both have caused Blood Moon to diminish its returns as a four of, backing up what you said. I play Snow-Bant in paper and run blood moons in the board for example.
I think playing to your local meta is crucial if you want the deck to be competitive. Lot of Tron? Bring 4 moons. Lot of white? Sneak a Stormbreath Dragon into the main or side. Lots of astrolabe? Give Abrade or Ancient Grudge a try. I am forever changing this deck, since its a tier 2 it needs constant tuning against tier 1s. For example, I use to run Obstinate Baloth out of the side board when Jund was big with Lilly and KC, but it has no place in the current meta, instead i run 4 Leyline of the Void these days and lots of Veil of Summer.

Hey! Yes, I use Bojuka Bog to hose other’s graveyard shenanigans. Also, Sentinel Totem, Tormod's Crypt, Grafdigger's Cage, Nihil Spellbomb, and Leyline of the Void (I don’t own a Void but that would be another relatively common used card). Anyway, the only real answers to those are artifact/enchantment removal cards. So yes, Bane of Progress is something I could totally add. I own one already but I believe it’s in another deck at the moment. It should be a card I own more of. It’s a fantastic EDH card. Rampage of the Clans is another one I own but have in another deck. I know it gives the opponent’s creatures but I love that it’s removal at instant speed. I’ve used it a few times to great effect. Acidic Slime or Reclamation Sage are handy one-offs, then there’s Wave of Vitriol bit of a bomb card. I use that one in my Gitrog deck.
I know there’s a ton of artifact removal out there that can respond to most of the graveyard hate cards but sometimes when my meta knows I’m running a deck that uses the graveyard they’re prepared.

fasmith718 that's sweet to hear you killed it at a paper event! I've been competing on MTGO and doing decent. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper has been a popular discussion point in that discord that I shared in the description. I, personally, am not a fan of planeswalker cards, but that's the aggro in me. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper is good as a recurring grave exile threat, and as a small cmc creature threat. However, Kaya's Guile can be at instant speed, adds to grave for Bedlam Reveler and can force opponent to sacrifice an expensive creature (which has come in hand against Primeval Titan, Gurmag Angler, Bedlam Reveler, and other big creatures we find it difficult to remove at instant speed. As for the synergy with Leyline of the Void, I agree that that could close out games really well IF opponent lets Kaya, Orzhov Usurper get there. Generally, you don't judge a planeswalker based on ultimate alone, but you do bring up very strong points. If you like the synergy, and it works for you, keep it! Keep reporting back to us on how it works for you. Also, as for Chalice of the Void, I usually use Kolaghan's Command or Wear when I know opponent uses it. Usually, Mardu Pyromancer can work at the 2 or 3 cmc range really well, until artifact hate is found. Opponent usually doesn't have 6 mana super early to use Chalice of the Void to counter 3cmc spells.
YamishiTheWickedOne there are new Rakdos lists that use Lightning Skelemental, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, Dreadhorde Arcanist, and Seasoned Pyromancer to absolutely blaze through opponents. I think I've generally seen them forgo to also threaten with Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon. They are somewhat susceptible to early interaction and grave hate, so that's why I've kept my list this way. That being said, Unearth doesn't work here super well, since most creatures are not 3 cmc or lower pre-sideboard. I actually just did a league and I found myself not needing more card draw. I had plenty of threats and just had to "toolbox" and figure out which I needed to cast at that moment.
Thank you for your comments! Please feel included and encouraged to critique and suggest anything else to the deck, or even the primer to make it better! :)

BubbRubb4Real: Ground Seal shouldn’t be a huge problem for this deck, since both Kroxa and Underworld Breach still function with it out. Leyline of the Void is trickier, though, and Rest in Peace is even worse. The issue I've had with Mire in Misery is that it requires them to only control one enchantment, it's pretty useless with two enchantments out. Another potential option is Pharika's Libation. But Chaos Warp is my current go-to spot removal for enchantments, and I'd almost rather run another tutor for it instead.
