Creature — Zombie Warrior
Whenever Dreadhorde Butcher deals combat damage to a player or planeswalker, put a +1/+1 counter on Dreadhorde Butcher.
When Dreadhorde Butcher dies, it deals damage equal to its power to any target.

both Chaplain of Alms Flip and Ambitious Farmhand Flip feel really out of place here, i’d ditch them so you can run the 4th Carrion Feeder and Gravecrawler, both cards that are vitally important to this deck functioning.
i’d also get rid of Sungold Sentinel, Intrepid Adversary, and Lunarch Veteran Flip as they’re all pretty bad cards and don’t really fit the sacrifice theme. White is pretty poor with sacrifice in general so maybe it’s better to be running red instead - gives you access to Mayhem Devil, Goblin Bombardment, Dreadhorde Butcher, and Lightning Bolt, which are all really helpful for profiting from sacrifice while applying a lot of fast-pressure (I have a competitive BR zombie-sac deck here if you're interested to see that).
If you’re planning on doing tournaments then you’ll need a sideboard. If you do end up with one, Duress belongs there instead of the mainboard (it’s useless versus other creature decks).
i’m worried that Rotten Reunion only feels just-barely playable if Kaya is out doing her -2.

From a competitive modern standpoint, all of the following cards have super-impressed me and felt a lot stronger than they first appear:
Of course, every card is bad in the wrong deck, and these are no exception. Most of these cards do feel like they require more support than the average competitively-played card, but i’ve certainly found them all to pull their weight above-and-beyond what i’d initially expected.

The Wandering Emperor, Walking Ballista, Lion Sash, Scavenging Ooze, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Zabaz, the Glimmerwasp, Steel Overseer, Gruul Spellbreaker, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Stonecoil Serpent, Dreadhorde Butcher, Cleric Class, The Great Henge, Simic Ascendancy.

both Grave Pact and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord seem to be going against your strategy of being a fast aggro deck - and both will be particularly hard to cast with 17 lands (especially Jared, having soo few green sources outside of treasure). I think these cards will slow you down more than they will help you.
I’m also unconvinced that any of Gather the Pack, Village Rites, or Deadly Dispute help you play aggressively. I would think that these slots would be better suited towards being more quick threats, rather than slowly looking through your deck for stuff.
You have almost no reason to run green, especially as i’m not convinced any of your current green choices are worth running (there is Hardened Scales, but i’m not sure its worth splashing a whole colour for). Have you considered swapping green out for red instead, to give you access to Dreadhorde Butcher and Lightning Bolt?

Several years ago I put together a strictly Rakdos-themed Aggro deck built around Fists of the Demigod, Psychotic Fury, Ashenmoor Liege, and having a "transformative" sideboard. Many users on T/O at the time seemed to like it as much as I did. But unfortunately, one day I accidentally left it at an LGS shortly before it permanently closed, and was never able to get it back...
Now half a decade later, I'm looking to rebuild. However, over the past 5 years many new creatures have been printed that have rendered my old list, quite frankly, obsolete..
I'm probably going to keep all of the non-creature spells (except maybe Madcap Skills), but I'm likely to replace all of the creatures except the playsets of Rakdos Cackler & Spike Jester, and the singles of Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch and (of course) Ashenmoor Liege.
With so many new options, compounded by the fact that I haven't played any Modern in years, I find it difficult to settle on a particular direction...

Glad you finally cut Graf Harvest
Dreadhorde Butcher might be worth including.
There have been several variants of BRx midrange goblins that actually run Goblin Bombardment without being a fully committed zombardment combo deck.
How has Bladestitched Skaab been for you? I'm not sure whether it would be good enough here.
Headless Rider is a new spicy zombie, might be a fun 1 of?

Something to think about though, you can count on your opponent trying to remove some of your more important cards, and just bank up extra food by sacking them first with Witch's Oven. This lets you sac Cauldron Familiar for other things like Spark Harvest and still return him to the battlefield with the extra food.

zapyourtumor my friend was playing Soulflayer and he would delve Zetalpa and I simply lost whenever that happened. Grasp of Darkness is a thought, but normally he would have hexproof on it as well. Again, it is there for now but obviously I need to adjust according to whatever the meta may come to.
Murderous Rider was there as a catch all for later games since Fatal Push can't hit anything past 5, but it would be taken out. There may be an adjustment with how many Light Up the Stage s I play, with Murderous Rider and whatnot. Something to think about. Thanks for the thought!
Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger is another one that I'm going to play when I can find a foil Japanese Extended art, or have the money to afford it. Another way to help with grindy games.
Honestly, Dreadhorde Butcher is a potential as well. But his ability to just take over games cannot be denied. Plus, he's probably one of my favorite cards in Pioneer. It is RARE that I don't like to see him. He can be a serious clock. However, he isn't as synergetic as some of the other cards.
