Rakdos, Lord of Riots Discussion

Hey, I looked through my binder and found Rakdos, Lord of Riots and wondered if he could be a useful commander? Maybe Using Heartless Hidetsugu or something along the lines of that. Then casting huge colorless creatures? Idk if it's as cool or useful but whaddya think?

I would also consider playing green in the deck if nothing else than for Elvish Piper.

If you have problems in R/B mana acceleration, a card that could help would be Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Technically it's not mama acceleration, but it helps spew out cards from your hand and your commander. Plus it's a 6/6 with flying and trample for 4 mana. #Worth imo

First of all, thank you for the upvote and taking the time to help with this.
To answer your questions:
Queen Marchesa gives me an early play in a deck where I have lots of top end flyers. She also is an easy way to have additional card draw (monarch). Plus deathtouch blockers. Kaalia is probably the better commander but the $35 price tag keeps me from picking her up. Its probably worth it but on the flip side.. I really do like Marchesa, she fits the secondary goal of the deck which is a hatebear/control strategy. Not exactly a "prison", "pillowfort" or "death and taxes" but similar (if that makes any sense). I want to control the board without having to just kill shit and blow stuff up. I would love to win without having it be just an all out brawl (I have Surrak for that). I would love for this deck to be more like that. I just already had the whole angel/demon thing going.
This started out as an orzhov deck with Obzedat, Ghost Council as the commander. The main reason I built it was because I didn't like white and wanted to force myself to play it. It soon became my favorite deck to play, then shifted towards angels/demons. I ended up adding red for primarily 4 cards Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Master of Cruelties, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, and Aurelia, the Warleader. They fit the theme and were too good to pass up.
I definitely want to keep the angel/demon theme intact but would love this deck to have more control to it. I have a hard time cutting stuff at this point. Everything is good, you know? When I saw your list I was like "Unholy fucking shit man this is disgusting! How do I implement something like this in my Mardu list?"
You bring up a good point on ramp. That is an area of the deck I have basically neglected. Thoughts on cuts in favor of the signets and other rocks (possibly even shit like Burnished Hart and Pilgrim's Eye)?

Not a big fan of Malfegor in this build, but that's just me...
Wonderful design, though! The creature base looks remarkably solid! I'd look into drooping the fatties down just a bit to streamline the mana curve, but, other than that, it's looking good! :)
