If you want to further pursue the avenue; I have a few more ideas.
Verdeloth the Ancient
Bonfire of the Damned
Stream of Life
There's plenty more, but a lot of the one-shot burn spells are just that, one-shot, and don't keep hurting your opponent's turn after turn. Obviously that's a lot of suggestions so choose what's fun for you. This isn't a highly used archetype so a lot of the cards are pretty cheap :)
Cards like Decree of Annihilation scare me as they slow down the game, but one of your opponents could use something like Sensei's Divining Top to get ahead quicker. I know, I've done that to an opponent before after they played Apocalypse.
Genesis Wave drops all of your x-costing creatures onto the 'field as 0/0s and they die. So if you do add a ton of hydras etc I'd suggest removing it. Citanul Flute is epic in here since the converted cost of say, Savageborn Hydra, is only 2.
Anywho, have fun! +1 from me! Pease take a minute to check out some of my decks and +1 them! Cheers

I would focus more on instants and sorceries that make creatures over Acidic Slime Hornet Queen It That Betrays Orcish Settlers Regal Force Xenagod and use spells that double tokens and maybe Strionic Resonator

Hmm, okay. I just thought it'd be a cool early option, if you can't get Rakdos out quickly. Also, why Thran dynamo instead of Hedron Archive? Archive seems like it'd be better here, since Rakdos only requires two colorless, and archive provides draw later. Also Heartless Summoning would help a lot here I think. It helps power out your commander, and only prevents you from playing one creature in your deck, Orcish Settlers, which can be removed for something like Fulminator Mage. Also, Lifeline may be worth looking into, in case you run into a lot of removal. Last off, are the artifact hate redundancies on purpose? I understand all the land hate but you've got a lot of artifact wipes in here. I'd replace one of them with another tutor, if you've got one in mind. I'd get rid of Shattering Spree, myself. It's a bit too color-intensive. Subterranean Tremors would be a great replacement either for Spree or Vandalblast, since it doesn't just kill artifacts, doesn't hurt Rakdos, and can be cast for more if you want the 8/8. Just a thought. Seven deadly sins would be cool for this, I think.

Being that you want to do land hate here are some cheaper nasty land destruction cards that might interest you I don't know many green land hate cards so:
Orcish Settlers <-- would be really nasty with some ramp
Price of Glory sadly this is a little pricey for a budget deck
Pyromancer's Goggles <-- if you decide to throw some targeting land hate spells

I love the art on Orcish Settlers (yay, American Gothic reference!) but I think it's too mana-hungry.
Thanks for the comment! :) If you like the deck, you're welcome to leave a +1 ;)

Thanks for the compliment Suaz14! Here are some more. Please excuse my need to recommend creature spells... It's my favorite card type. I'll be sure to include some non-creatures as well!
- From the Ashes
- Obsidian Fireheart
- Orcish Settlers
- Embermaw Hellion
- Ember Swallower
- Volcanic Offering
- Bend or Break
- Thoughts of Ruin
- Tectonic Break
- Winter Orb
- Static Orb
- Psychogenic Probe (This card is awesome for fetches!)
- Impending Disaster
- Smoke (Fitting I feel)
- Tectonic Instability
You'll probably want to be drawing cards while your opponents are forced to discard cards because they're missing land drops or just barely making the cut at 7 cards in hand. In any case Sandstone Oracle is a budget friendly draw spell. There are plenty of other better options too, but it was just a thought.
I'm not going to be cruel and "suggest" the cards above, that's a lot of clicking around for you to do. So I'll just leave the list here. Hopefully you see something that sparks some interest!
