I like what you're doing here, Dash Hopes is vicious! I think I might add it to my own deck.
There is a couple of things I don't quite agree with:
1) The play set of Wicked Akuba. It would benefit from some type of evasion, or even deathtouch, but it doesn't. More often than not, it's a bear. I think I'd rather see either another type of removal, or Chittering Rats, which has the always effective ETB effect. If your looking for something to help the devotion, another decent creature could be Dauthi Slayer: opponent can't chump block, which forces them to expend a removal spell.
2) Pharika's Cure seems too cute of a card. It's essentially a 2 cmc 4 life gain, strictly worse than Lone Missionary or Rest for the Weary, but in Black. Once again, I'd rather see some type of removal, or hand disruption, something that impacts the board state a bit more.
Thanks for sharing! You got an upvote!

is Crypt Rats very expensive? Not so much and it is wildly better than anything else on the list.

I was planning on building black/red pauper burn, but this is an awesome idea.
I would drop Dash Hopes. Giving the opponent a choice is never ideal. Morsel Theft is awesome- but you probably want 12-16 creatures to reliably pull off these shenanigans. Vampire's Bite is another card worth considering.
Choking Sands is a sideboard card.
