As an additional cost to cast Cathartic Reunion, discard two cards.
Draw three cards.

Also, you will need less graveyard hate in the sideboard. And I think that great additions in the side can be Collective Brutality and Abrade , because of Burn and Whirza, that are popular decks right now.

May I suggest having a having a split between Cathartic Reunion and Thrill of Possibility ? Reunion is better at filling the graveyard for Reveler, but after you get 6 in there every Reunion after drops off in value; plus the instant speed on Thrill lets you use your mana more efficiently. For example, if it's turn 3 and you have a Terminate and Thrill in hand you can pass the turn and draw if they don't play a threat, which you wouldn't be able to do with Cathartic Reunion.

You also don't have any card draw. You do have a good source in the command zone, which, is nice. Unfortunately, Boros colors do draw the worst, so you'll have to rely on some not-so-budget mostly-colorless staples or less-than-efficient engines. The prevailing wisdom is ~8 draw pieces but you'll be lucky to have half that in Boros colors. I personally consider card advantage in the command zone to count as ~2 draw cards due to the accessibility.
Mind's Eye , Staff of Nin , Arch of Orazca , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Reforge the Soul , Cathartic Reunion , Rogue's Gloves , Infiltration Lens Coercive Portal , Mask of Memory , Trading Post , Conqueror's Galleon Flip, and Well of Lost Dreams are about as good as you can get without going into much more expensive cards or other colors.
Good luck and have fun! I hear Depala is a fun commander.

You need to add more tormenting voice effects. Faithless Looting and Cathartic Reunion for sorcery, Geier Reach Sanitarium for land, Key to the City for artifacts, Rix Maadi Reveler for a budget creature and Seasoned Pyromancer nonbudget.
The second thing you need is fast mana, so put in cards like signets: Rakdos Signet , Orzhov Signet , Boros Signet and the talisman cycle: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Indulgence .

WUBRG87 Last thing I'd want is to sculpt your deck into something that doesn't feel like yours(!) - I love EDH's lack of homogeneity. Happy to give you my 2 cents with the direction I'd be thinking of from here though and with not too bad of a budget...
More of a sacrifice direction that isn't 'aristocrats'; add another altar ( Phyrexian Altar or Altar of Dementia ), maybe switch Dark Ritual for Culling the Weak - then you would have a good level of sac outlets to have some heavy hitters like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Kokusho, the Evening Star replace Noble/Zula/Buccaneer. It's a bit contradictory adding sac outlets and removing aristocrats I know but I think the aristocrats make better use of volume (like tokens) and our boy Chainer is better off packing more value into a big recur-able punch.
If it were me, I'd be thinking:
- Falkenrath Noble
- Zulaport Cutthroat
- Glint-Horn Buccaneer
- Charmbreaker Devils
- Corpse Augur (switch for Disciple as another sac outlet)
- Scheming Symmetry (switch for Intent)
- Dark Ritual (switch for CtW)
- Burning Vengeance (Warstorm Surge and Flayer do it better, or drop Warstorm if you wanted to lower the overall CMC)
- 1 of Vampiric Rites , Cathartic Reunion or Underworld Connections (I think there's enough card selection that all 3 of these aren't necessary. Depends if you like the speed or reusability as to which)
- OK I'm stuck on the last one just now!! Maybe Stitcher's Supplier , but then I'd maybe want the Altar of Dementia instead... I'd probably end up saying Dreadbore because sorcery speed. That way Mausoleum Secrets -ing for your Bedevil is essentially your second instant speed spot removal for Planeswalkers
Also, to your point about the 'Compet-o-meter', I'd say the impact will be from the system rating Zula/Noble highly because of combo involvement in decks that revolve around them and the Buccaneer showing up in Nekusar, the Mindrazer lists, which tend to be pretty savage!, rather than necessarily your changes being significantly worse one-for-one. I actually really like Embodiment of Agonies in this, it's cheap and can be a massive beatstick pretty easily.

There is no strict replacement for
. All "alternatives" such as
cost , which is significantly more than . All alternatives which cost (such as the
that ToolmasterOfBrainerd mentioned) simply do not do the same job that
does, as looting allows twice the "loot" as all alternatives.
If you're desperate for a replacement, the neonate is probably your best bet... but it feels WAY worse to play than Faithless Looting .

Sooo.... Faithless Looting is banned.
