What do you think about Songs of the Damned? It could give you another way to cast crusher, it works well with Consume spirit and it can create a board wipe big enough to clear anything with the rats in the sb.

Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.
Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.
If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:
- Songs of the Damned and Caravan Vigil for ramp
- Soulshriek to help with your Rite of Consumption plan
- Nimble Mongoose will be amazing with quick threshold
- Vile Rebirth and Shamble Back to fuel your sac outlets in black
- Chatter of the Squirrel and Scatter the Seeds and Night Soil to fuel sac in green
- Ghastly Demise for cheap, efficient removal
- Blossoming Wreath and Pulse of Murasa to stall aggro
- Dregscape Zombie and Rotting Rats because this deck could break Unearth
Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

I have been brewing different takes on reanimator (most private) and playing against myself using another deck on this site, most decks didn't make the cut due to being incosistent. In my opinion the main problem of reanimator is the prevalence of blue in the format and bounce spells like Vapor Snag. If at least your crusher died you could exhume it back, having it in your han on turn 3 is bad, really bad. That is why the for latest iteration of this archetype I moved over to golgari Tortured Existence using Songs of the Damned and drege/Pit Keeper to relentlessly place little guys into the battlefield. I have more cretures than they have removal/bounce/counters so in the end the board is mine. Crypt Rats help wrath away boards and players and Gnaw to the Bone makes sure there is no chance for an aggro deck to kill before I have everything set up to win.
My personal recomendation is that you brew the deck however you prefer but forego that many big eldrazi. Gurmag Angler has great synergy with discard and fetch-lite lands like Ash Barrens or Terramorphic Expanse. It also dodges doom-blade which is nice. If you splash blue you can have Striped Riverwinder which dodges targeted removal and happily jumps into your graveyard on command. In Rackdos colors you have Horror of the Broken Lands with synergy for discard Ingot Chewer for affinity and some other fatty with cycling or evoke I don't remember. Personaly I would also drop cathartic reunion as the heavy control meta makes it read "discard 3 cards including a card named cathartic reunion and spend 2 mana to bait a counterspel". Also if you are running red and discard for your reanimator list Dragon Breath can easily make you win a turn earlier and dodge all that pesky sorcery speed removal and letting your oponents untap.
Have fun with the deck, I would be very interested to see where this takes you as I haven't tried brewing Rakdos reanimator...yet.

Good call. Too bad he can't run Songs of the Damned. But you could run it Goblins for defense and run Battle Hymn, Brightstone Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Energy Tap, Infernal Plunge, and Pyretic Ritual along with tutors for the Storm cards. Might be better as pure combo, not sure.
