Wow that's a lot of planeswalkers. Do you get much use out of Chandra, the Firebrand ? Copying instants and sorcery is nice, but you run some of X cost ones. If you're trying to be aggressive, maybe Chandra, Pyromaster would do better.

If you want to punish people further with Kaervek, try Painful Quandary. I'd also drop Rakdos Ringleader since he's 6 mana for a 3/1 first strike. You seem to like going aggro here so maybe something cheap like Spike Jester (could also substitute for Shred-Freak)

I'd also drop Rakdos the Defiler since, while he is strong, you have few demos to feed him. Defiler of Souls or some other demon for a replacement?

This deck looks, aggro but I'm getting a bit of disarray at the overall strategy. Graveyard shenanigans? Punch them in the face? Mana Ramp? Ultimately, you just need to fine tune your overall strategy and find cards that fit it and yourself. That's what EDH is about :)
