Creature — Goblin Assassin
When Murderous Redcap enters the battlefield, it deals damage equal to its power to target creature or player.
Persist (When this creature is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

the answer is yes.
this card works almost exactly like Melira, Sylvok Outcast with persist creatures. so if you have Murderous Redcap, or Kitchen Finks along with a sac outlet like say Spawning Pit. the result would be either infinite damage or infinite life respectively.

@trav1405 - I definitely like Qasali Pridemage, especially with Renegade Rallier in the deck. It has a lot of uses and exalted is a nice plus too. In the future I might move one of those and an Orzhov Pontiff from the sideboard to main deck to focus on more toolbox creatures.
@Ethon - I see how Avacyn's Pilgrim would be more consistent. Maybe I'm getting greedy but I do like being able to hardcast Murderous Redcap with Overgrown Tomb + Arbor Elf. I may try running a 2/2 split and see how it goes.
As for Fiend Hunter, I've been debating whether Phyrexian Revoker can cover most of it's functionality.... I'm hoping Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet barely exists and that Revoker can cover Scavenging Ooze. Fiend Hunter is the consensus better option and I'll probably swap back.

Since you already have Ashnod's Altar in the deck, I would recommend adding Nim Deathmantle as well. Not only does it combo with Murderous Redcap and Altar, but it also gives a good buff to Tana, making her both easier to connect with as well as deal more damage (for more tokens).

Deck:Cult of Rakdos EDH
So far I an pretty happy with how the deck plays. It does it's thing well and more importantly it's fun as all hell.
There is however a list of cards I want to add but I'm unsure whether I should and if so, what cards to cut in their place.

On the whole (and especially as a budget build) the deck looks really good. As for individual card choices:
Selesnya sanctuary is not great, as it slows down your turn two play. Turn two is a vet important turn as a decent chunk of your ramp (as well as your commander) are turn two plays. Tectonic Edge is a good card as it give you a bit of land and isn't too expensive to buy. I would recommend switching them.
Rampant growth is good, however if you can a Nature's Lore, do that.
Kami of false hope is a bit overkill given you have Spore Frog who is the better option as well as a bunch of ways to tutor for him.
Reclaim is ok, but Noxious Revival is so much better. It's a bit expensive for an uncommon but it's basically free and doubles as temporary graveyard hate.
I'm not a fan of persist combos in the deck. They don't work with Saffi or any other recursion combo and without access to Murderous Redcap they don't generate a win condition without Blasting Station or Altar of Dementia anyway. Plus you're hinging everything on Cathars' Crusade with redundancy on it. But adding redundancy means having potentially "dead" card in your deck.
While having additional combo in your deck is nice, the fact that they have no iteraction with your primary combo is not good and in my opinion at least, a waste of card slots. This also means that cards like Fanatical Devotion are completely useless (whooo, you can infintiely regenrate creatures, yay...).
What I did with my deck was to cut a lot of the non-core combo pieces (both creature and otherwise) and just focus on the core combo package as there is an awesome amount of interaction between the recursion pieces. Then I used all the additional card slots I had freed up to add creature tutor and raw card advantage. This in turn helps the deck find its combo pieces better.
That's why I run cards like Eidolon of Blossoms (which is a lot better than a lot of people think), Nissa, Sage Animist Flip, Stoneforge Mystic etc, as well as lands like Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Horizon Canopy, Inventors' Fair (which you should seriously get a copy of) etc. But I appreciate that a lot of those cards are quite expensive to buy.
On that same note, I don't like Mirror Entity. It's quite complicated to get a combo with it working and while it's cute as a beatstick, you're not running Avenger of Zendikar alongside it so it loses a lot of its potency.
Anyway, I hope this has given you some iedas and insights, but feel fre to hit me up if you have more questions.
