So many no-no's.

Typhoid Rats is not really a modern card. If it is, then its role is to dissuade attacking, not to attack for 1 damage on turn 2. That makes it a kind of control card.

Piles of 4 cmc creatures: a couple of them, perhaps, if you don't mind being more midrange than aggro. In a deck with 20 lands, you average is to hit the first 3 land drops, then skip a turn, and have your 4th land on turn 5. On top, you have 4 lands that come into play tapped, meaning that you are even further behind. Removal is pretty good in modern, so you can expect something like Fanatic of Mogis to work poorly.

Madcap Skills. Out, all of them. Your creatures in general suffer from low toughness and a lack of protection. Trying to put an aura on them is just letting your opponent 2-for-1 you without getting anything in return.

No Lightning Bolts. Yes, it's a boring card, played by every deck that has the least bit of red mana in modern. That's because it's a very good card. It can handle early creatures, or go to the face - pretty good for an instant at 1 mana, huh?

I like that idea. I think I'll try it out, just maybe not in place of Madcap Skills.

dzapf2008 its a fun deck but it could probably be made without Blightning or Bump in the Night or Hellhole Flailer and include more evasion stuff like Madcap Skills and the like. I think you can either go more of a creature strategy with rakdos and be more effective, or go the opposite route and go just mono-R burn. Its good, but its weak in its current state. I appreciate the kind words though!

Thanks for your feedback, guys.I think i might run Atarka's Command as a sideboard card and swap it with Madcap Skills depending on the opponent's removal possibilities. And about the mana, I guess I'll keep it current way, because the nonfetch dual lands are 2 types which boosts this deck significantly.

Sounds like your looking for some of the fetch lands. Arid Mesa, Wooded Foothills, and Windswept Heath are the ones best suited for your colors. The other are Overgrown Tomb, Flooded Strand, Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, Misty Rainforest, Polluted Delta, and Marsh Flats.

Atarka's Command Might also be a good addition, I would use it in place of the Madcap Skills.

The fetches and Atarka's Command are a bit pricey, so if you're going for budget they might not work well. Good luck!

ill start by saying that saskia's ability shows more potential in something outside of voltron.. but i could see it performing decently! Here's some of my suggestions...

if there were ever a screw blue card, i would say Possibility Storm would be the iconic. Any time they cast a counter spell, they have to rely on the fact that the next one they draw into is also a counter. also this allows you to cycle through card types like maybe artifacts that you don't want.

i think you could play a bit more into the double strike and making saskia more of a force to be reckoned with even faster. things like Battle Mastery or Madcap Skills (while not double strike, still does well early game for dmg boost and evasion).

Vexing Shusher helps carry your commander to the field even when your opponent knows your deck and that your win con relies on saskia getting out.

Open the Armory should have a place in here.

Bastion Protector is a good support creature for you.

i'm a firm believer that Burgeoning is better than Exploration in commander.

i have to go do some work, but i want to get back with some more ideas for you and also some things you don't need in here. stay tuned!
