This spell costs less to cast for each creature on the battlefield.
Blasphemous Act deals 13 damage to each creature.

I really like your lathliss deck. Blasphemous Act plus your wrathful red dragon can end a game if you have enough dragons on the field.

Update: -Marionette Master / +Cyberdrive Awakener -Machine God's Effigy / +Imotekh the Stormlord -Blasphemous Act / +Their Name is Death -Disciple of the Vault / +Steel Overseer -Reverse Engineer / +Losheel, Clockwork Scholar -Bedevil / +Void Rend -Temple of Malice / +Cryptothrall -Temple of Enlightenment / +Optimus Prime, Hero Flip -Temple of Deceit / +Thirst for Knowledge -Temple of Epiphany / +Shivan Reef
Notes: I chose Cryptothrall over Spellskite because they serve the same function, to protect your stuff, but Cryptothrall requires less effort. I put in Optimus because I wanted to experiment with him. Lastly, I'm keeping Austere Command in the deck since I like to have a board wipe that hits enchantments and artifacts.

11/23/22 - Madness update
I'm really low on madness cards. Needs to be far higher for an anje deck.
Emergence Zone - adds a lot of sorcery speed options into gorger loop
Cloudstone Curio - infinite mana combo with Dockside + a creature iff dockside makes enough mana to cast both.
Revolutionist - if in gorger loop, can loop instants (and sorceries if anje is there too.)
Alms of the Vein - sorcery for above
Fiery Temper - instant for above
Violent Eruption - instant for above
Distemper of the Blood - can also get looped with Revolutionist
Hell Mongrel - discard outlet WITH MADNESS
Asylum Visitor - madness
Kitchen Imp - madness
Bloodhall Priest - madness and etb trigger that kills with gorger
Terminal Agony - madness
Necrogoyf - madness
Malevolent Whispers - madness
Removed most end game threats + interaction that didn't have madness, since madness tech needs to be there in high density and the deck can win through that stuff mainly.

You have the option of another mana Sliver in the form of Gemhide Sliver. Trust me, Mana is your most required asset. I would drop Virulent Sliver as, to be honest, I would not genuinely expect to win with poison counters. And if this was a win con I would be going hard on it, not just a 1 chance.
As the aim of your deck is to go wide, I would be tempted to go with Shared Animosity to pump your attack power.
I would question the value of Spinneret Sliver when you already have 2 slivers giving you flying.
Now... onto the mana base...
I would strongly suggest getting more dual color lands which can come into play UNTAPPED. We are in a very intensive deck, and getting to that is super important. Chromatic Lantern could be super useful, and you may also wish to replace something with Morophon, the Boundless.
Whilst ABUR duals are super expesive, and to an extent Fetchlands too, Shocklands (Godless Shrine etc.) and Bondlands (Morphic Pool etc.) may be more accessible. You could look at the Filter lands too, or checks. I just think this could essentially speed up the deck exponentially
I will have another think about some other bits as well and will get back to you :)

Very nice Rakdos slug deck. I highly recommend adding Repercussion to pair with Blasphemous Act which is already in your deck, as well as Mana Geyser paired with Cut / Ribbons which is in your maybe board. Both those pairings have won me many games with my group slug deck - just this past Friday, Repercussion did 117 damage to one fella, and I followed it up with X=19 Ribbons thanks to Mana Geyser.
I took Haunting Wind as an idea from your deck list and will have to place it within my own - to punish all those treasure lovers out there!

There is Kaervek the Merciless, this might work well with your fairly high MV. Also with the higher MV, you could look at Protection Racket, which is mostly a problem if your deck cares about specific cards, as long as your deck is just a bunch of cards that are all good together it's one of the best cards in Black, it can draw you more cards than Rhystic Study in some metas, or just drain everyone of life if they're really, really responsible and always pay. Finally, Timesifter is hilarious if your opponents have a deck with a noticeably lower MV, or a lot of lands compared to you. You could toss in some really high MV spells like Blasphemous Act and/or Reckless Endeavor, wipes are handy I find, even in a deck that usually is ahead, sometimes you face a faster deck, or a deck that has one sided wipes. I think if your MV is over 3.75 you probably could look at all but Timesifter, for that you might want to go even higher. Another way to raise your average MV is MDFs like Hagra Mauling Flip, as a spell you would never run it, but in place of a land it is both versatile and has it's MV for any effect that cares about it, the only question is if you can afford a tapped land (or want to pay for the Mythics, can enter untapped in a pinch). Some of these cards are just incredible value IMHO, like Valakut Awakening Flip, but some seem bad, afaik the best way to rate these is to consider if the effect is valuable period in Commander (is it worth a card in theory), not to worry as much about the cost because the alternative of hitting a land drop is almost never a terrible thing.
If you run a lot of creatures, I like Court of Cunning and Court of Ambition, both are annoying cards that can also draw you cards, and Cunning is a great source of repeated mill vs something like Glimpse. Also if you run a lot of creatures, Bident of Thassa is perhaps the best non-Frostfang version of this effect, the forced attack can be backbreaking to some decks. Another decent one is Reconnaissance Mission, the worst of the lot is Coastal Piracy. Grim Hireling and Professional Face-Breaker are also nice cards. Thalakos Deceiver and Thalakos Dreamsower are nice Blue Shadows, Dauthi Voidwalker is a really good Black one, each of these is really hard to block and comes with a substantial upside. It's a bit janky in Commander, but Sower of Temptation isn't a terrible card, you just can't count on stealing anything too game breaking, as long as you steal something not worth spending another card on you'll get an evasive 2/2 that can sneak damage in for triggers.
If you want a one-sided nearly-Wrath, you might consider Make an Example or Phyrexian Purge. Example is able to pinpoint remove the best creature of each opponent, by any metric, and it's almost impossible to get around with present day cards (it's a chosen, not targeted sacrifice effect), while Purge lets you clear out the best 4 or 5 creatures so you can just take over, Purge likes having access to some life gain, it's especially good with something like Sangromancer, but if you want life gain in Grixis it's hard to do better than Exquisite Blood, but I'm almost never unhappy with Mask of Griselbrand, I think that card is slept on somewhat in Commander.
If you do go with Kraum or some other beefy Commander for your deck, Agitator Ant is a pretty strong card, but you either need the biggest thing on board already or to be able to remove stuff as needed. Kraum having evasion means you'll usually be able to get in against someone, so +2 power is great, and you being Goaded wears off before your next attack step anyways, so it only matters if someone steals it I guess (at which point it can't attack you I suppose??), Agitator Ant also works with any super-evasive creatures, so if your deck has lots of Flying or Shadow it
Hope some of these ideas are helpful!

I can't help but notice you don't have much in the way of ammo for damaging your own creatures. Maybe your opponent will do the job for you, but it's just as possible he has a bunch of flyers who can just dodge your critters, or maybe he's trying to mill you out. Sometimes if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!

I definitely second the MTGO idea if you have no nearby game stores. It's definitely not the same as playing in person, but it works. There is also Spelltable for webcam games. Anyways, onto some deck suggestions:
Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury is a really strong Rakdos dragon since it pumps your team.
I personally have removed Urza's Incubator from my dragon tribal deck. There has been a pretty significant uptick in dragon decks lately due to recent sets and the symmetrical effect has become much more of a liability. I would replace it with Herald's Horn. You still get cost reduction, but with some card advantage thrown onto it.
Speaking of card advantage, I think you could use a lot more. Atsushi, the Blazing Sky is both a dragon and card advantage. Solemn Simulacrum is both ramp and card draw. Stinging Study is 5 mana, draw 5 for you at instant speed. I always advocate for black decks to run Read the Bones. It's still one of the best card draw cards in black.
Lastly, a litte more interaction could go a long ways. Crux of Fate is a fantastic board wipe for dragon tribal, and a Bedevil and Terminate would go a long way. If you want to get really spicy, Wrathful Red Dragon + either Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction is hilarious.
Good luck deck building! It looks like a fun build.
