Light Up the Stage
Spectacle (You may cast this spell for its spectacle cost rather than its mana cost if an opponent lost life this turn.)
Exile the top two cards of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play those cards.

Thank you both for these great suggestions. I also added

Out: Seize the Spoils
It's very likely we can cast Light Up the Stage for its spectacle cost in our second main phase, and we'll likely have treasures and mana up to cast the exiled cards. Also, the card has dragons in the artwork!

TheOfficialCreator Thank you, Light Up the Stage looks great with Spellweaver Helix. I wish Vilis, Broker of Blood was a dragon. MaybeMaskwood Nexus to make him a dragon… Theater of Horrors looks perfect, though!

So I’ve played allot of budget blitz and this is how’d I build it on a budget
This will give you a really fast, consistent deck that’ll win you games. It definitely has the power to take down fnm with some good draws. Without fast/shock lands playing 2 colors is just to risky for an agro deck.
Everything is in the $5 budget, Manamorphose and soul scar are borderline but they’re just such a solid cards.
I hope it does well for you! If you decide to stick with your list, I’d definitely add dart, Darcy, tarfire and light up the stage. It’ll increase the overall power level considerably

Hey, with Rakdos as Commander then consider some effects that make an opponent lose life without attacking? Rakdos can't be cast without first an opponent losing life and effects that cost no additional mana as well as being repeatable are nice since you want to use your mana on your turn to cast Demons or draw. Get repeatable value while also making your opponent or each opponent lose life.
Cryptolith Fragment Flip is ramp and an enabler for Rakdos. Plague Spitter is a hidden gem, repeatable 1 damage to each creature at your upkeep can wreck opponent token strategies especially Spirits who are flying blockers against Demons and opponent's green mana dorks. Lower mana cost options, less than 4 mana, are better since they can potentially be cast before Rakdos.
With Rakdos as Commander and playing Demons you need less ramp because he's a source of ramp for Demons. For this reason I would make draw more important then ramp. Still play some ramp, but more draw lets you draw Demons to cast using Rakdos mana cost reduction.

- Rakdos Signet
- Theater of Horrors
- Florian, Voldaren Scion
- Valakut Exploration
- Mask of Memory
- Faithless Looting
- Light Up the Stage
- Seize the Spoils
- Big Score
- Unexpected Windfall
- Magus of the Wheel
- Read the Bones
For more draw my advice is make cards with repeatable effects a priory for upgrades. Draw spells that are a single effect are fine too, having both is best. Seize the Spoils, Big Score and Unexpected Windfall is loot (draw and discard) and ramp with treasures, that's really helpful for Demons to get three effects with one card.
If you're interested I offer more advice in another comment. Would you like more advice?

What kind of budget are you working with?
Azusa, Lost but Seeking is awesome for extra landfall triggers in a turn. Cabaretti Courtyard is also a good search land for doubling up on landfall triggers. Since you have a fair few lands with sacrifice abilities, World Shaper might be worth some consideration, too.
A few more good cards for this in no particular order: Embodiment of Fury, Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi, Druid Class, Field of the Dead ($$), Nissa, Who Shakes the World / Nissa, Vital Force, Omnath, Locus of Rage.
As far as things you can cut to make room: Canopy Baloth is kind of meh since it doesn't have any kind of evasion. Could swap this out for Embodiment of Fury. Might of Murasa could come out for the Awakening, since it's a similar costed effect (surprise giant blocker for only 1 effective mana more). Light Up the Stage feels out of place, could be cut for Druid Class for good gains.
Reviving Dose could also be cut for one of the Nissas - essentially, you're paying 3 mana for 3 life, where you could instead pay 5 mana for an epic planeswalker that makes you more land creatures. I'm also not a particular fan of Weather the Storm, although IMO it's at least situationally better than reviving dose. You could even cut both of those life gain spells and add both Nissas.
