Uncle AXstivan looks like fun! Never seen him before, first impression is he is a brick on the field that can take a beating. Voltron him? Maybe. Can he win games on his own? Maybe. I would use him as a stall/sometimes beater till your end game pieces are in place which at the moment looks like life-drain through some cruel control (like discard and hand hate like Distress for example. Death Watch might be a good fit also). I like the idea of a 'swamps' matter/devotion thing you have so far (Gary, Drain life, etc). I really like decks that are versatile and can change direction when needed. Your Uncle is still easily removed, so you might want some protection for him like Whispersilk Cloak for example(esp if you are going for an artifact synergy with Cranial Plating...also: Nim Shrieker and Hunger of the Nim if you go in that direction). But like Gattison mentions plenty of graveyard effects helps avoid comm-tax. And speaking of graveyards Nihil Spellbomb would fit here as well. As far as Swamps-matter I would consider cards like Death Wind, Howl from Beyond, Infernal Harvest and for ramp and artifact synergy: Armillary Sphere. Also for some added instant black-mana to feed those x-spells there is also Liturgy of Blood which feeds a dual purpose. I'll be sure to check back when you make updates. Happy PDHing!

Ashiok is not in your commander's color identity, so he should be cut for sure.
Furor of the Bitten, Trepanation Blade, Liturgy of Blood, Bone Splinters, Mindslaver, Gifted Aetherborn, Gatekeeper of Malakir, and Grave Upheaval all don't feel like they're fitting the theme of what you want the deck to do, so I'd recommend taking out those for lands.

Liturgy of Blood, Index, Extinction, Dimir Cluestone, Jace Beleren, Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Returned Reveler, Returned Centaur, Indulgent Tormentor, and Elusive Tormentor Flip could all be cut for better cards. I'm glad to see your CMC for the deck is low, but most of these cards have better versions. You already have the good Jace in here, Liturgy can be removed for Go for the Throat, Indulgent can be taken out for either Bloodgift Demon or Archfiend of Depravity. I don't see how Lili, heretical healer and Elusuve Tormentor help your deck, and Extinction seems too narrow.

This looks like a really fun deck. I love Rakdos. If you want to make it more viable for an FNM while maintaining a budget I do have some tips:
A lot of the creatures just don't really meld well with a burn strategy. Burn typically means you want to win fast. I would actually scrap all the creatures and replace them.
With the low cost of all the cards you don't need 23 lands. I would take out Darksteel Citadel and Terramorphic Expanse. Bloodfell Caves and some of your basics can be replaced with Dragonskull Summit.
