I used to run haste-givers like Anger in my deck, but I found that because of Rakdos, I tend to play a lot of my creatures post-combat, which made haste useless for the most part. I would take Anger, Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask out.

Walking Ballista is an excellent choice for this deck. You can play it early and attack or ping the opponent to cast Rakdos, or you can sink your mana into it and make a huge Ballista later in the game. Hangarback Walker is good in the same vein, but not quite as powerful (though it's strong against boardwipes, which the deck can be soft to).

I think you could take out a lot of the single-target damage spells from your deck. Lightning Bolt, Incincerate, Lightning Strike, Skewer the Critics, Exquisite Firecraft, and Char are all fine in 1v1, but in a multiplayer setting they feel pretty weak, and they almost act as a commander tax if you use them to play Rakdos.

I am not sure what your budget is, but investing in all the legal Eldrazi Titans and mythics will really improve your deck. Emrakul, the Promised End, Void Winnower, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre are usually game-ending. If not, Rune-Scarred Demon, Duplicant and Knollspine Dragon are all pretty cheap and powerful cards to cast with discounts.

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is one of the best mana rocks for this deck. It is both your fourth mana source (of any colour) to cast Rakdos and the damage enabler you need! Pilgrim's Eye is also similar in that it has good evasion and guarantees you a fourth land to both deal damage and play Rakdos the following turn.

I like Spear Spewer a lot more than Thermo-Alchemist or Nettle Drone usually because in multiplayer Spewer will guarantee 3 damage every turn and is much more flexible to play in the early turns at only 1 mana.

Pilgrim's Eye , Farfinder , and Skittering Surveyor all allow you to not miss a land drop and still get another body on the field

jpermar that's helpful to know! So how come you're running it over Tormenting Voice ?

For what it's worth, I have run a Bladewing the Risen that wants to rummage in order to fill the yard with Dragons, so I'm wondering if the mana efficiency of Magmatic Insight is more worthwhile than including Tormenting Voice , especially when Thrill of Possibility does the same thing at instant speed.

Do you think Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire and Dream Devourer are a little too slow to activate to find their way in here? You'd need to look into how Devourer stacks with Rakdos (eg. does the total mana cost of a creature, if foretold after any damage is dealt, keep that reduced CMC, minus two?) but both are flavor fits and get the tools you want into hand / onto the field a bit. One may slot in over Pilgrim's Eye , though I'm not sure about the second spot...

It is absolutely the manta ray, but yes, Pilgrim's Eye or Skittering Surveyor is probably a more consistent pick! I've got Sadbot in there, so I'll see how the Wayfarer plays.

Is it the manta ray? I bet its the manta ray ^_^

...if not then Pilgrim's Eye??

I've been running all the 1 cmc instant/ sorceries that target permanents just so I can consistently clone lands. All these fat payoffs like the sphinxes are fun when I can dump my hand and copy 5/5s while also wheeling my deck... Though I'm not sure which draw engines to run. Pulse of the Grid seems fun.
