I would replace your slower creatures with Rakdos Cackler.

I think the biggest way to improve this deck right now would be to make it either mono-red or mono-black. Having lands that enter the battlefield tapped is a serious problem for an aggro deck and not being able to cast your spells on curve because you've got the wrong combination of red and black is going to slow the deck down a lot too.

Red is the easiest to make a good creature aggro deck with, so I'm going to recommend cards for that: Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, Rakdos Cackler, Falkenrath Gorger, Burning-Tree Emissary, Lightning Mauler, Firedrinker Satyr, Foundry Street Denizen. Basically, I think that you have to have a really good reason to include a card that costs more than 2 mana both so you can run a low land count and not get mana screwed and so you can deploy as many threats as possible as quickly as possible to overwhelm your opponent and none of your expensive cards at the moment justify their inclusion.

I completely missed the part with Kederekt Parasite that it needed a red permanent. My bad. Let me search for a red permanent that will do the job better than Rakdos Cackler.

zephyr_chang, Really good suggestions thank you! The Rakdos Cackler was in there for just early game blocking and to trigger Kederekt Parasite's ability. I'm definitely looking to get rid of those Fists of the Demigod... As for Thoughtseize, and some of the other suggestions, they were a bit too expensive for me (since this was kind of a budget deck). I will most definitely try out Waste Not as well as Geier Reach Sanitarium. Their synergy with the rest of the deck is sick!

I think you can lose the Rakdos Cackler and Fists of the Demigod; the former is too low impact and the latter only works well with Rakdos Cackler (for full value). They are kind of random. You could play Waste Not which would give you a ton of value in this sort of deck. Or you can probably use those slots for more staple discard and removal such as Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt. 15 lands is also much much too low and you should go up to at least 18-20. Geier Reach Sanitarium will fit your gameplan quite well. Bloodstained Mires will be great if you have them.

Rakdos Cackler Ash Zealot and Flame Javelin are some hard hitting budget options. People might laugh at your Lightning Strikes, Searing Spears and Incinerates for not being Lightning Bolts but they probably won't be laughing very long.

Overall this deck looks pretty solid. It reminds me a lot of 8-Rack (which you may or may not have heard about), which uses The Rack and Shrieking Affliction. Those could be 1-drops that replace Rakdos Cackler since that doesn't seem to add towards your "discard to win" strategy, especially since the Rack is splashable. The main reason you may want to keep as-is is if you don't want to be entirely dependent on the discard strategy and have a good beater.

Also, I find that Duress is very useful. Maybe replace 1-2 Despise with that or Brainbite since, although brainbite cantrips and acts as a painless budget Thoughtseize, it's rather slow and you may rather be casting Blightning or Bloodhusk Ritualist at that point.

i would cut 4 Hellrider and 2 Rakdos Cackler for 3 Tymaret, the Murder King and 3 Lord of the Undead.

Consider Anathemancer and Ghoulcaller's Chant for the sideboard.
