BrandonJamesCAC, yeah I tend to agree with you about Push and Thoughtseize, but push/path are the only decent creature removal spells we got in modern. Thoughtseize + Bitterblossom = Literally Kill yourself, yeah I have done this countless times, but Thoughtseize is just so damn good at being an unconditional removal spell though, for the low price of 2 life. Yeah, Vendilion Clique is just better all around when compared to Brazen Borrower, nonetheless Borrower can act as a time walk in some cases.

I've got my own Rakdos deck. It's my favourite!
Sanctum of Ugin is an excellent land to have, since it often means dropping multiple fatties in the same turn. Having many colourless lands can make it difficult to cast Rakdos, but it's very much worth it with this land.
I eventually cut my Terminate for Bedevil and haven't looked back. The extra mana is well worth the flexibility.
Bitterblossom is an excellent source of evasive creatures to be able to cast Rakdos repeatedly. It gives you tons of chump blockers and eventually an army all on its own.
Retreat to Hagra is also a great way to get Rakdos into play by just playing lands. It also gives you a bit of life back and can also pump up some creatures and give them deathtouch occasionally.
I would cut some of your worse card draw spells for Bloodgift Demon. It's another copy of Phyrexian Arena and can also fly in and attack for 5. It also benefits from the Rakdos discount while also remaining playable in the mid game on its own.
Wheel of Fortune and Reforge the Soul are also excellent draw spells. I usually get way more out of it than my opponents do, especially when I can dump my hand, draw a new seven, then dump my hand again.
No Solemn Simulacrum in this deck? It's great when you can cast it for free off Rakdos and it can occasionally get in for some damage to help cast him.
I tried to optimize my deck to get Rakdos out as early as possible (turn 4, sometimes 3). I also run more traditional "pingers" because I have a deathtouch sub-theme as part of my removal suite. Other than that, our lists are really similar. Check it out here

IMHO as is this card is unplayable. It’s triggered abilities are too expensive. I’m fine with the casting cost, but we’re only talking one card for three mana. Unless we’re getting the creatures for free (off Bitterblossom or something else similar,) we’re paying the cost of that spell and the cost to draw. I’d be open to the cost being one as suggested and tacking the life gain/loss tax on seems flavourful.
Maybe if this was a creature you could justify it as is, because the thing can at least swing when you can’t afford it’s trigger.
I do appreciate the flavour and that there is design space here.

I've made some changes to the deck. I've cut out all the "infect" cards for example and i've rounded down the boardwipes. It still needs some playtesting though.
List of the cards that i want to add or are not present and why: Bitterblossom: i plan to add it but it's expensive so i'm waiting to find one for a lower price.
Contamination: I don't want to add it because i don't think it's a fair win con in a non competitive meta such as mine.
Bitter Ordeal: nice card here, i own a copy but i'm unsure if i want to use it as win con basically for the same reason as above
Cabal Coffers: Too expensive for me, it will never make the cut.
Bloodghast: Nice card but in my opinion unecessary as there are less expensive options that still do the trick.
All the infect stuff like Tainted Strike: In my opinion i saw a problem when i mixed the proliferation effect with the sacrifice/-1 counters effects because the deck was less focused. Sure, more options are better but i'm on a budgetish deck and i prefer to be more focused. About this point i could change my mind.

You also can't go wrong with a few more cheap rocks. As you've seen, I'm a big fan of cheap artifacts and storming off to create a huge amount of faerie tokens. Another thing that can allow things to get out of hand with your Dire Undercurrents and Alela on board is Kindred Discovery. That's two cards per faerie entering the field.
As for cards in your maybe board, Mystical Tutor and Enlightened Tutor are something you want. You have plenty of targets for both that they will very rarely be dead cards. Bitterblossom has is a flavor win, and also has great synergy with Dire Undercurrents and if you choose to add it, Kindred Discovery.

It's nice to see a Korvold deck that isn't going full cEDH into Food Chain.
You have a bit of a token sub-theme going so maybe some token doublers like Parallel Lives or the criminally expensive Doubling Season would be good. Plus Parallel Lives/Doubling Season + Clock of Omens + Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven is a hilarious infinite combo.
Also, Artifact Mutation might be a solid removal spell that provides fodder.
