You’re welcome. The only reason that I didn’t say to just add more Infernal Plunges is that when you get stuck with expensive creatures in your hand, add you don’t have any cheap creatures, you can’t really cast it since you wouldn’t have any creatures. So I thought that a couple Generator Servants might be useful for those instances.

I feel like this deck needs more ramp. I play tested it a couple times, and I kept getting stuck with a Flayer of the Hatebound in hand and no early drops. The difficult thing is, rakdos doesn’t generally have the best ramp. One I can think off the top of my head that might work well here is Generator Servant, because he dies and stuff, and you want creatures to die. I don’t know. Also, you could try Rakdos Carnarium.
Now, onto the sideboard problem. I think sideboards are generally just comprised of hate cards (or cards that work well against other decks in your meta) for the decks you typically play against. Then again, I’m no expert since I also play casually and don’t use sideboards. I think to really help you build a sideboard, I would have to know what decks are in your meta, what decks you need to have an answer to.
Other than that, it was a fun deck to play upon play testing. Nice idea!

I would be worried about the mana base in this deck. I can see that there would be times where you just get the wrong lands to play your spells. If Budget is an issue, then you might want to try the SOI show lands. With the amount of basics you’re running, they could be untapped most of the time, and you can get a play set of most of them for under $4. The ones you want are Choked Estuary and Port Town. Otherwise, good deck.

Nice! I like this deck, and good job with it. What worries me, though, is that you’re playing 20 lands with 6 and 5 mana creatures. I don’t mean to sound criticising or anything, but I think you might want a few more lands in this to make it more consistent. I think the most beneficial fix here would be to take out the Banshees and add 2 more lands, because 22 lands with a curve that tops out at 5 is okay, but I also see why you would want to keep them in the deck. Anyway, just something to think about. Other than that, it looks pretty good. +1 from me

I’ve been thinking about a list similar to this for casual play. Your deck looks pretty good, but I do have one concern. All your 8 one drops are recursive, which kind of contradicts Tombstalker. I mean, he wants cards to stay in the ‘yard to delve, but your creatures always come back. How is it working for you? I considered him, but scrapped the idea for that reason. Anyway, Nice deck!
