Phyrexian Rager Discussion

Okay, some thoughts:Sinkhole was never printed as a Common on MTGO, so outside of places that will let you play things banned online in paper tournaments (and therefore also Hymn to Tourach, which I would play in a hot second), it is not legal.
How do you deal with aggro decks that go wide or have hexproof? IMO, you need to address it either with a sweeper main or cheap deathtouch creatures plus some main deck edicts. Since you are already on the burn plan, 2-3 main deck Geth's Verdict seem perfect. Again, since you are on burn, maybe 2
I'm guessing most of your wincon is burn? I would consider Rancid Earth over Icequake. Once you hit Threshold, it is 1 damage to all creatures (mini-sweeper) and 1 damage to each player.
I think this is a deck that makes a really good case for Thermo-Alchemist, though if you do that you might want to add 4 Duress and drop the Rats. Phyrexian Rager as a 2-of seems less good than 2 Gurmag Angler.
I like the design though. It is a burnier version of my build.

Phyrexian Rager is nice, too, but not sure if it fits what you're trying to do.

Cards to Consider:Sanctum Gargoyle
8 months ago
As far as suggestions go, I can't help but feel that your land count is a bit low - I tend to stay around the 37 mark. I noticed that you're a bit sparse on draw spells, and black gets some of the best draw pauper has to offer; I run Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Succumb to Temptation, Phyrexian Rager, and Read the Bones in my own list.
Three cards in your list that seem a bit underwhelming to me are Last Caress, Contaminated Bond, and Reave Soul. The former seems too minor an effect, even with the cantrip. The Bond is a cool card, but most of the time I think it's a better idea to remove the threat entirely (if you dig the "slow drain" theme, I think the Contaminated Ground in your maybeboard would be better in this slot.) For myself, the sorcery speed of Reave Soul makes it less appealing - maybe something like Wring Flesh, Spinning Darkness, or Tendrils of Corruption would be worth considering? I also dig Viper's Kiss as "utility" removal.
Great deck, though! Pauper EDH is my new favorite format, as it tends to feel more like 'oldschool' magic.
