Very nice alternative. I must say I think your list of searchable demons is a little thin and not that much utility to get. It appears you mostly have demons that grant card draw in some fashion.
I would probably put in something like Archfiend of Depravity or Pestilence Demon for swarm control. And I do find Archfiend of Despair a very neat tech choice to wallop an opponent out who has taken a bit too much damage. Or Sower of Discord to either dissuade an opponent from attacking into you or to utilize damage against one player to swing against another.
While Reaper from the Abyss is a very nice card that keeps on giving, I find Overseer of the Damned to be a good alternative, as the effect happens immediately and can better be utilized to save your skin or deal with a problematic creature from an opponent.
All this being said I don't think I'll ever drop the Orzhov variants of Shadowborn Apostle decks.
The amount of value you can get with Black-White is well worth it in my eyes.
Include cards like Immortal Servitude and Rally the Ancestors and if you're a bit more casual; Angel of Glory's Rise. Even if you only have a small slew of Apostles, you can use them again and again for quite cheap.
And while we're at it, throw in a Smothering Tithe.

Honestly can't think of any good budget cards I could suggest. Your average cmc is a little high but k'rrik has fun with that. Maybe recommend Bojuka Bog, Read the Bones, Defile, Feed the Swarm, Mind Stone, Repay in Kind, Animate Dead, or Pestilence Demon as good budget cards if you need to make some budget cuts. I like the deck though, it has much better synergy than just good stuff black I think, it's focused on gaining life and dealing damage, which is what is expect from a Chad like K'rrik

multimedia those are some good suggestions. I like alot of them. I really like what you said about chainer. Coveted Prize is cool but getting a full party is Christmas land. It's not gonna happen. I also really like robber of the rich. I may find room for alot of these.
seshiro_of_the_orochi I really live demons. Also being able to destroy all creatures at a touch of a button is great but I dont want to wipe out my creatures too. There will be no Crypt Rats, Fire Ants or Pestilence Demon's in this deck.

Great choice for a budget!
Piranha Marsh is a suprisingly effective land. I'm often very happy to play this on turn 5 to get Rakdos out.
Insolent Neonate is also surprisngly effective as an enabler with Menace. Being able to use him as card draw later is a big bonus.
Duplicant is .75 cents. That should be cheap enough to make your budget, right? It's removal and potentially another fatty that can be very cheap with Rakdos.
Knollspine Dragon is 1.28, but being able to draw tons of cards after an attack is brutal.
Steel Hellkite is .99 cents. Definitely worth an include.
Increasing Ambition is 1.26, which is pretty cheap for a good tutor.
Dragon Mage hits hard and wheels you into more fatties. .20 cents.
Demonlord Belzenlok is 1$ can has a pretty good chance of drawing you a lot of cards.
Pestilence Demon is freakin' awesome. .48 cents.
When Sire Of Insanity gets out early, the game usually ends. .67 cents.
Gorgon's Head doesn't make much sense here since most of your pingers don't hit creatures.
Staff of Nin is cool, but just way too expensive on mana to be worth it.
Ill-Gotten Inheritance seems pretty weak. You don't want your enablers at 4 mana, usually.
Morgue Burst is really expensive. It just doesn't seem worth it.
Tectonic Giant could easily be cut.
Since a lot of the budget mana rocks are 3 mana, maybe you should look into more 2 mana or less pingers, so that you can get to your Rakdos on turn 4 more often.

You have more chance of executing the ramp than you do the cheese tutors and Crypt Ghast serves two purposes which is hot chocolate
For destroy or removal look at Go for the Throat | Doom Blade | Bone Splinters | Disembowel | Sinister Concoction | Cast Down | Dreadbore | Terminate | Murderous Compulsion | Walk the Plank | Victim of Night.
I'd probably recommend 4 copies of either Go for the Throat or Walk the Plank because they get rid of mostly everything.
Mostly just try and figure out what demon/s you want to build your deck around then choose cards that complement it
