Made these changes because I didn't have the original cards

Any sort of ETB effect will be perfect.
- Gray Merchant of Asphodel
- Rakdos, the Showstopper
- Demanding Dragon
- Rapacious Dragon <-- free mana
- Shadowborn Demon <-- A beautiful engine for Chainer
- Abhorrent Overlord
Also Flameshadow Conjuring would be perfect to get double triggers off of your creatures, and it gives the token haste so you can swing without losing much since it'd be exiled at your end step anyway. This way you get twice the value off of the ETB and you can swing for some boardstate pressure.
HERE is a list of creatures in Rakdos that have Madness.

Shadowborn Demon is seriously underrated. It is removal on a fat stick with a sacrifice trigger.
If you have the life to run Bolas's Citadel , it's broken and a lot of fun.

What I'd take out:
- Whiptongue Hydra (no synergy and very situational)
- Pelt Collector (cards like Wight of Precinct Six cost only 1 mana more and get way bigger)
- Dryad Greenseeker (there are a lot of better options for your deck)
- Chlorophant (same as Pelt Collector)
- Ghoultree (Boneyard Wurm is similar, but always only costs 2 mana)
What I'd put in:
By the way, Guardian Project is a great card. First time that I see it.

I like the changes! Looks like a solid deck. The last thing I would do to tune it is look at the bottom end of the curve. Gibbering Fiend and Pilfering Imp are cute, but now that you've removed your token producers, you'll have a tough time feeding Demonlord of Ashmouth , Eater of Hope , Xathrid Demon , Shadowborn Demon , and Infernal Offering . You've still got some cards that care about going wide, like Torrent of Souls , Hellrider , and Skirsdag High Priest .
The rate on Hordeling Outburst is good. For a reanimator deck, Skirk Ridge Exhumer , Cryptbreaker , Call the Bloodline , and Silversmith are also good. At the top end of the curve, Abhorrent Overlord could also warrant consideration. Also, in the land slot, if you feel your manabase is good, I like Kher Keep . Speaking of the manabase, Urborg Volcano and Tresserhorn Sinks are better in your deck than Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse . Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace is a good utility land for reanimator. Also, Pyramid of the Pantheon and Molten Slagheap are real bad. Myriad Landscape is miles better.
My favorite low-curve option for pumping out bodies is Hanweir Garrison . Hanweir Battlements would be a sweet addition, as well, and I think it's better in this deck than Hammer of Purphoros . You don't really want to be taxing your lands with a deck full of 5+ drops, and I could say the same for Underworld Connections . It looks like a budget Phyrexian Arena , but it's really not. You're pretty good on card draw at this point, but if you really feel the need for another source, Night's Whisper is a clean, solid option.

Krark's Thumb probably isn't good enough though

Here is a few more fatties you could consider for this deck Scourge of the Throne, Balefire Dragon, Karmic Guide, Baneslayer Angel, Lyra Dawnbringer, Shadowborn Demon, Demonlord Belzenlok, and Overseer of the Damned.
