Great deck! Manamorphose will help you filter through your deck and filter you mana into anything.

Thank you jpxsat ! Guttersnipe is fine as a Burn general. It's really hard to compete with Zada in terms of Mono-Red right now. She is the only way to really create substantial card advantage in Red.

I forgot to mention:

I don't really like the haste enablers in Rakdos, since you usually play your creatures out post-combat to get the discount. Unless they're packaged with other abilities, I don't think they're worth it. ie. Fervor and Crashing Drawbridge.

Great choice for a budget!

Piranha Marsh is a suprisingly effective land. I'm often very happy to play this on turn 5 to get Rakdos out.

Insolent Neonate is also surprisngly effective as an enabler with Menace. Being able to use him as card draw later is a big bonus.

Duplicant is .75 cents. That should be cheap enough to make your budget, right? It's removal and potentially another fatty that can be very cheap with Rakdos.

Knollspine Dragon is 1.28, but being able to draw tons of cards after an attack is brutal.

Steel Hellkite is .99 cents. Definitely worth an include.

Increasing Ambition is 1.26, which is pretty cheap for a good tutor.

Dragon Mage hits hard and wheels you into more fatties. .20 cents.

Demonlord Belzenlok is 1$ can has a pretty good chance of drawing you a lot of cards.

Pestilence Demon is freakin' awesome. .48 cents.

When Sire Of Insanity gets out early, the game usually ends. .67 cents.

Gorgon's Head doesn't make much sense here since most of your pingers don't hit creatures.

Staff of Nin is cool, but just way too expensive on mana to be worth it.

Ill-Gotten Inheritance seems pretty weak. You don't want your enablers at 4 mana, usually.

Morgue Burst is really expensive. It just doesn't seem worth it.

Tectonic Giant could easily be cut.

Since a lot of the budget mana rocks are 3 mana, maybe you should look into more 2 mana or less pingers, so that you can get to your Rakdos on turn 4 more often.

Living Death seems really good for your deck. It's both a board wipe and a reanimation spell for you. It gets even better with cards like Bojuka Bog, which you should definitely replace a swamp for.

In the same vein, Patriarch's Bidding will most likely get you a lot more targets than anyone else.

I think you could swap out Eldrazi Monument for Coat of Arms for insta-kills.

Marrow-Gnawer should be finding its way to the maindeck somewhere. Mirror Entity as well.

In terms of cuts, Bad Moon is not great, since just having another rat pumps the same amount of power. Same with Shared Triumph. If you care about toughness, great. If not, these are easy cuts. Lurrus seems a bit grindy for you and could be better served as more card draw or something.
