Rakdos Signet Discussion

Actually, you can get Bolas out on turn 2 with a perfect hand and some signets...

So, It looks to me that this deck is on a budget, and I will comment with that in mind.
Commander damage looks like your major wincon, but it can be a very difficult way to win games. Most experienced commander players will recognize a threat like Thrax early on. Because of this you probably want more protection for Tharx if you want him to connect more consistently or even just stay on the field to get big. Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves are good, but even Curator's Ward will work.
The next thing I would look at is your mana base. If you have access to the signets (i.e. Rakdos Signet) I would work them in. They are faster and fix better than the cluestones. Get a Sol Ring if you can. Darksteel Ingot is better than Obelisk of Grixis because of the indestructibility. You might also want to consider Nightscape Familiar to reduce your mana burden.
You have a few cards like Aetherflux Reservoir that just don't fit this kind of deck.
Overall, I think the weakest point of the deck is that it lacks focus. Most budget decks are going to aim for one thing and just try to do that one thing really well. This deck looks like a grab bag of cards that might work in this color identity, but not a focused group of cards with a common goal. I would pick how you want to interact with the game, then find cards and build into that mode. For example, a lot of Thrax decks have sacrifice themes, controlling the creature state by forcing as many sacs as possible, other decks might try to control the game with classic grixis control like counter, kill, and burn spells. If agro is you goal here, you need bigger beaters and more value for your swings (i.e.It That Betrays and Bident of Thassa).
My thoughts on the viability: I wouldn't take this to a tournament, but I've played with decks that were less congruent then this one and still had fun.
Good Luck, I hope this helps. I'd be happy to provide more card suggestion if you tell me which direction you are headed.

Ok so I made a few changes to make this deck even more playable and fun :)
Along with this change are multiple changes to lands, a few basics have been replaced with cycle lands and deserts, and some duals have been swapped for other duals that are better...
I’ve also swapped out/in some artifacts, because mana ramp...

Really liking the changes so far! In some testing with it, still feel very strongly about adding both Rakdos Signet and Orzhov Signet. Fixing is so important to your build due to needing to ensure Kaalia of the Vast hits the board ASAP. Without her, you tend to durdle quite a bit. Darksteel Colossus felt really bad... cannot reanimate from the grave, nor sneak it in with Kaalia of the Vast. Visara the Dreadful also seems more like a target on your head card than anything. If you were going to use the Gorgon to fill graves, you're better off playing Rout and catching everything (at instant speed if you need too).
