Razaketh, the Foulblooded Discussion

My main concern of the deck is the "competitive" tag. That tag would imply this deck is a fully optimized, competitive list, able to see play against the best decks of the format, and still have a decent winrate.
This list, from what I see, is not able to accomplish this.
I honestly do not know what this deck is trying to do, as there was not a primer for it, nor an explanation, but I will look and see, If I am wrong in my analysis, please correct me, and I will apologize promptly if I am mistaken entirely.
It looks like a Shadowborn Apostle deck, that is using the apostles to cheat out few choice demons, of which there are 7 total, out of them Demon of Death's Gate and Ravenous Demon Flip are simply large beatsticks, and so are basically useless for a cEDH deck, Indulgent Tormentor is the same unless you team with an opponent, and Rune-Scarred Demon is a Demonic Tutor on a stick. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a big hate-on search, but the 10 life and sacrifice a creature should barely hurt a player unless they are paradox combo with Captain Sisay or Arcum Dagsson, and so they use a Swords to Plowshares on it or Pongify and then combo off. Harvester of Souls is decent card draw, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded is actual tutoring.
What can you tutor for or draw to win? Not much I am afraid you only have 6 removal spells, and they aren't very good for these colors, no Dismember or anything else really.
Without Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Lotus Petal, or Chrome Mox type effects, you can't legitimately expect to pull a win with this deck at a competitve table, and your card draw is just horrendous.
At least I would suggest you do the courtesy of running your good tutors, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal and Grim Tutor (some decks don't need Grim Tutor), along with Necropotence for draw and Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace for the draw your deck.
May I ask about you landbase?
Commonly, for a competitive deck, the usually 2-color landbase looks like:
City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Concealed Courtyard, Command Tower, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, Gemstone Caverns, and Tarnished Citadel (the 11 unfetchable duals in your colors)
This 31 card landbase is fully tuned and optimized for a competitive deck, why does yours not run the rest of the good fetches, and all of the good duals?
To be entirely honest, I don't think this is a bad deck, and don't want to offend you or your deck-building skills, but I would hope you drop the "competitive" tag or change the deck a lot, it is mis-leading as it is.
If you want any deck-building advice on how to make this deck competitive, I suggest heading on over to Why Every Commander is Competitive and learning from that resource I set up for new players to cEDH.

What about Razaketh, the Foulblooded ? You could search for him and then use him to search for other demons

Thrumming Stone is a must in this deck.
Also rat decks should have more than just 28 rats, unlike shadowborn apostle decks the rats need to be a bit more.
gravepact should be in here as well, unless you are trying to go budget.
My version of this deck is much more boring... but it is probably a bit more consistent as I play with Sidisi, Undead Vizier (I know it's a flavor fail) as my commander to tutor Thrumming Stone up immediately. If you get a chance check it out Stack Dat Cheese!.
Also have you considered changing the deck name to... "I'm Beginning to Fell Like A Rat God"

Hey, I think the Demon archetype can really benefit from Reassembling Skeleton in M19. Several Demons in current Standard and M19 Standard coming up can be good with a recurring sac outlet like Skeleton: Demon of Catastrophes, Rite of Belzenlok and Razaketh, the Foulblooded.
I suggest to make your deck unique consider building around the Demons, Rite and Eldest using Skeleton as a sac outlet. Focus more on one, two and three drop removal rather than creatures.
Something like this:
- 4x Aetherborn
- 4x Skeleton
- 4x Catastrophes
- 2x Belzenlok
- 1x Razaketh
- 1x Liliana DM
- 4x Push
- 3x Down
- 4x Doomfall
- 3x Never
- 3x Rite
- 3x Eldest

Just watched your Youtube video. I had already recognized that Jodah-Rector-Flash-Omniscience had potential, but without thinking about the actual lines in detail.
I was skeptical at first about Tidespout Tyrant, but it made sense in the end.
Still, there are two things I would like to see to improve the deck:
1) A way to win off of Flash-Hulk even if those are the last two cards in your hand
So far, the best line I could come up with is the following: - Flash in Protean Hulk - Find Viscera Seer and Body Double, copying Protean Hulk - Sac Body Double, find Academy Rector and Wirewood Herald - Sac Academy Rector to find Omniscience - Sac Wirewood Herald to find Fierce Empath - Play Fierce Empath with Omniscience to find Razaketh, the Foulblooded - Play Razaketh, the Foulblooded, sac Fierce Empath to find any tutor to keep going
This requires a lot of extra slots, so I think there might be a better way
2) A way to win that doesn't rely on the graveyard
I'm also looking to get rid of the Wishes, since I think your situation is rather unique.
