You have Pestilence Demon , but you dont have Pestilence nor Pyrohemia Both of these do the same thing as the demon but are cheaper and must be sacrificed if you don't have a creature out. But as long as you do, pay one mana to have 3 mana cheaper on your demons.

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is imo the best target with Razaketh, the Foulblooded as a close second. The only reason I rank him second is you need at least one more creature in play to go ham.

Other great ones are Consecrated Sphinx, Nezahal, Primal Tide. Pestilence Demon is a personal favourite of mine too.

If you can reanimate at instant speed like I do in my The Scarab God deck, some nice options open up like Torrential Gearhulk, Steel Hellkite, It That Betrays and a personal piece of tech I have found useful: Keeper of Keys

Other honourable mentions are Rune-Scarred Demon, Kederekt Leviathan, Sire Of Insanity, Meteor Golem, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Worldgorger Dragon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and Kokusho, the Evening Star,

Celestial Mantle and Pestilence Demon dont work the way you describe. You have to deal combat damage to double your life total. Both are still sweet in their own though.

Only thing I can see as an issue is your land count. At minimum, I would add 3 more lands, but ideally I would run 38 in a deck with such a high cost. Maybe cut some of the weaker or vanilla cards like Spirit Link and Yargle, Glutton of Urborg for some more land.

Take out Anger, Ogre Battledriver, Vedalken Orrery and potentially Urabrask. The nature of Rakdos is to attack, then cast creatures with 6cmc or more off the top. Largely, hasty creatures are useless after combat. Pestilence Demon can replace Pyrohemia. I'd also drop Skull Rend, Retreat to Hagra, Read the Bones, Demonic Tutor, Unlicensed Disintegration, and Terminate. All of your mana rocks are also useless; picture the ideal scenario with any one of them: t1 Sol Ring, t2 Lobber Crew, t3 whiff...t4 Rakdos, t5 go off... t1 land, t2 Rakdos Signet, t3 Lobber Crew...t4 Rakdos, t5 go off...t1 land, t2 land, t3 Rakdos Keyrune, t4 Lobber Crew...you get the picture. There's only two worth keeping: Cryptolith Fragment  Flip and Pilgrim's Eye, because they will GUARANTEE a t4 Rakdos. In all my time playing Rakdos, I've found that the most important thing is to increase the consistency of playing him on turn four. If you want any suggestions, my build is currently undergoing renovation, but still worth a looksee: Satan Said Dance.

True. back in Old Zendikar we had plenty of nameless demons like Pestilence Demon vying with the Eldrazi for world domination. Seems perfectly reasonable for this to be one of those.

I was thinking Wound Reflection and Archfiend of Depravity. They would really put the pressure on opponents with all the collateral damage they will take from this deck.

Also, you run triskedecaphobia, so maybe Tree of Perdition??

Also, you really could consider running things that prevent life gain, like Leyline of Punishment and while we are talking about leylines, maybe Leyline of the Void or really anything that would exile graveyards is helping you with permanent removal. Bojuka Bog or Nihil Spellbomb come to mind off the top of my head.

I see you have Pestilence in your sideboard. That along with Pestilence Demon are great for keeping the board clear and putting pressure (a countdown with a life total) on opponents.
Lethal Vapors also helps on this front.

Mogis is a fun god to run, but just remember that he works best if you do not trigger his devotion as he becomes more vulnerable to removal at that point.
