Alrighty then let's get you all set!
You've got some big things and that's not bad with your commander, but you'll need some cheaper burn spells if Rakdos can really work. With that being said, Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, Bump in the Night, and Rift Bolt are your best friends. As for land base, try to shy away from basics, but add in as many rakdos duals that don't come in tapped as possible. I'll get you started down below.
While using rakdos, keep in mind that he takes away only colorless mana, so huge eldrazi such as Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Desolation Twin and It That Betrays can all go out for free if you play it right.
Furthermore, there are some cards that don't work too well in an aggro build like this and could use an upgrade. Take out:
- Strangling Soot
- Rend Flesh
- Wail of the Nim
- Sire Of Insanity
- Falkenrath Noble
- Maggot Carrier
- Tavern Swindler
- Rakdos Guildgate
- Blood Reckoning
- 4x Swamp
- 4x Mountain
- No Mercy
- Blood Crypt
- Ultimate Price
- Vial Smasher the Fierce
- Mogis, God of Slaughter
- Lord of the Void
- Dragonskull Summit
- Bloodstained Mire
- Command Tower
- Opal Palace
- Graven Cairns
- Shadowblood Ridge
- Leechridden Swamp
- Sulfurous Springs
- Chandra, Torch of Defiance
With these changes as well as the ones mentioned above, you'll be well on your way to a hated deck! Good luck!

For cheap mana fixing (<$1):
Gift of Paradise
Pyramid of the Pantheon
Cuts I'd suggest:
Gideon's Lawkeeper for Journey to Nowhere
Manaplasm for Managorger Hydra or Forgotten Ancient
Ondu Giant for Wood Elves
Rhox War MonkSengir Vampire for Archfiend of Depravity or Desecration Demon
Serra Angel for Serra Avenger
Stormblood Berserker for Sulfuric Vortex
Circle of Flame for Mizzium Mortars
Glory of Warfare for Chromatic Lantern
Honor of the Pure for Spear of Heliod, if you really want an anthem effect.
Frost Breath for Mana Leak
Guardians' Pledge for Sakura-Tribe Elder (you really dont have enough white creatures for this effect)
Incinerate & Lightning Bolt for Terminate and Murder
Plummet for Oblivion Ring
Titanic Growth for Harmonize
War Report for Day of Judgment
Exploding Borders for Burnished Hart
Traveler's Amulet for Wayfarer's Bauble
I suggest choosing a theme for your deck. Right now it seems to be pulling in too many directions.
Want to cast and swing with Progenitus? Include cards that grant haste like Temur Ascendancy.
Want to play fun multicolored shenanigans? Include whatever value you like.
Want to use overcosted enchantment cycles? Include the Shrines.
Focusing will allow you to better determine what your deck wants. Regardless, I recommend playing heavy green to maximize your ability to mana ramp.

Looks like a good budget list. I really like your spells, the only problem I see is the landbase. I can see how shocks and fetches are not an option but there are still plenty of other more budget options. Like the three painlands (Llanowar Wastes), the two or fewer lands (like Blooming Marsh), 5 color painlands (City of Brass, Mana Confluence) Opal Palace. And the woodland cemetery in your maybe board, etc. you really want to hit all your colors to curve a elf into turn 2 reyhan into turn three tana.
I would maybe cut the harmonize for the Smothering Abomination, I'm really bullish on that card. It's great. Can draw you your deck.
do you own the card in your maybe board, or are they things you still want? there are some cards i would surely add if i had them.

Whispersilk Cloak, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots. you need stuff like this to protect your commander more to keep her out. also maybe Marath, Will of the Wild would be a better choice he would hit them in the face everytime he came out with warstorm surge in play and he gets bigger everytime you cast him if you do go that route possibly i would through in Opal Palace

Champion of Lambholt would be really good in this deck. Phytohydra, Managorger, Mikaeus, the Lunarchwould all be really good creatures in this Inspiring Call for some solid life gain, Fog protection, Opal Palace make your commander bigger, Archangel of Tithes, Norn's Annex, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Windborn Muse, Elephant Grass will stop your opponents from attacking you and allow you to do what you want , Abzan Falconer and Tuskguard Captain will give your creatures with counters flying and trample. hope some of this helps.

Sounds lands to consider: Ash Barrens, Terramorphic Expanse, Esper Panorama, Opal Palace. The Lair's can help with fixing too Treva's Ruins & Dromar's Cavern. Or add more storage type lands like Dreadship Reef to take advantage of Proliferate.
Gyre Sage is cool here too.

Aqueous Form is really good with Shu Yun as permanent unblockability is very powerful.
Having Mystic Retrieval to rebuy a couple of cards can be key as well.
Myth Realized could be a backup win-con that can go unnoticed by your opponents.
Running out of steam is one of the biggest weaknesses in a deck like this and Surrakar Spellblade can help you refill your hand.
