In response to your question about card draws:

Night's Whisper is probably the best card draw option you can get for a dual-color deck with Black. There's Sign in Blood as well, but that requires 2 Black to cast.

If you don't mind (or want to work in synergy with) a sacrifice mechanic, there's other options there as well including (not limited to): Altar's Reap, Bankrupt in Blood, Costly Plunder

Village Rites is a better version of Altar's Reap you might consider changing it. see ya man <3

I would really like there to be a Rakdos Aristocrats deck in modern

Village Rites is strictly better than Altar's Reap. Lightning Bolt is strictly better than Collateral Damage. Priest of Forgotten Gods works as a great sacrifice outlet for creatures. Maybe use the Cauldron Familiar+Witch's Oven combo? Gravecrawler is an endless sac outlet if you have a zombie. Call of the Death-Dweller is good for reanimating.

Good Luck!

Check some Shirei decks, most creatures have just 1 power, so they can sac/reanimate all the time and its pretty sick :)
Village Rites is better version of Altar's Reap
Black Market can be very good, especially if you can go crazy and put tons of counters on it.. or it just eats removal instead of some more important card in your deck.
Tortured Existence - absolutely great creature retrieval just for and can go crazy with your Desecrated Tomb. I use it in combination of Phyrexian Altar as infinite etb/etg engine. Bitter Ordeal to exile everyone's library; Emergence Zone to make it instant speed if needed.
Hell's Caretaker can be fairly good reanimator for Shirei aswell.
Crypt of Agadeem,Dark Ritual,Bubbling Muck,Songs of the Damned are cheap for mana ramp.
Mutilate is just board version of Defile, might aswell use both?
Altar of the Brood easy mill just for that triggers upon any permanent you play.
Insidious Dreams - to cast your combos from top of your library if you manage to keep Bolas's Citadel on board. Forever Young/Gravepurge for casting creatures from your graveyard (top of your library with Bolas's Citadel).
Blanket of Night if you get more non-swamp lands and you're on low budget. Its just cheaper enchantment version of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.
Call the Bloodline could be easy way to get creatures into your graveyard, get some sacrifice dork and reanimate them later.
Priest of Forgotten Gods this pretty lady could be a nice addition to Shirei aswell, if you get some cards that make sacrifice dorks/etc. blahblah

Village Rites seems like an upgrade to Altar's Reap in case you haven't seen it yet. Looks like a sweet deck!

Ok, I guess the deck works, but it seems far from smooth. Impassioned Orator, Orzhov Racketeers are pretty terrible here, and Basilica Bell-Haunt isn't the most fitting, as well. You should definitely include some kind of free sacrifice-outlet like Nantuko Husk. There are many that are better, but Husk is super-cheap and very effective. Great card draw for the deck is Altar's Reap, and I really like cards such as Macabre Waltz for this kind of strategy. Looking at your overall creature base, Dusk / Dawn seems pretty useful. Oh, and adding a one-drop seems important. Doomed Traveler seems most fitting.
