Nice deck! I have a Rakdos modern deck that is lots of fun. Might I suggest Rakdos Charm , Spawn of Mayhem , and Chandra's Spitfire . Gravel-Hide Goblin cannot be used in this deck due to the green mana symbol. I would suggest swapping out a few of the lands such as Bad River , Mountain Valley and Esper Panorama for more basic lands.

For artifact recursion, Trash for Treasure is a useful one for cheating out big artifacts from the graveyard, and is a flavor win as you can literally trade your treasure tokens in for trash... err... your other artifacts XD Also, Goblin Welder is another classic one that can do the same thing. Trading Post is another flexible option, as I can see your deck being able to use most of the options. Though, I'll admit, I usually use these cards to cheat into play big artifact creatures that I've dumped into the graveyard, so you might want to consider this as a side option.

In terms of red artifact tutors, it's a little dicy, as most of the decent options use either blue or black. Inventors' Fair could work once you get all the needed artifacts on board. Some creature options also exist (if you're just looking to make a weird "illegal" fun deck.) Treasure Mage Trophy Mage Tribute Mage and Trinket Mage can fetch out needed artifacts, as well as having limited synergy with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death . Though looking at your current list, I don't see too many bomb cards that would be useful with recuring your artifacts. Maybe look into adding something like Solemn Simulacrum or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim ? In red you have things like Gamble , Hoarding Dragon and Goblin Engineer .

Hmmm... Sliver decks, while fun to pilot, either are dealt with early and fizzle out, or they end up overwhelming if you don't keep their creatures in check. If you're leaning more into the 5 color splashability casual deck, Rakdos Charm is a good catch-all card that deals with a lot of strategies. Even a well timed Blasphemous Act can slow them down. In your current build, I see you do run some interaction, but I think you'll find there are some more consistent better options out there!

Personally, I prefer run Vindicate instead of Mortify . Sorcery speed is a fine price to pay for a three-drop that can kill literally anything. You never know when you might need to take out a Coffers or a Cradle.

I'd also recommend Thundermaw Hellkite and Subjugator Angel as ambush cards to kill someone with blockers out of the blue, as well as Angel of Despair for better spot removal (same reason as Vindicate).

Also, if you're running Sunforger , I'd go with Tithe if you can afford it and a Mistveil Plains to give the other players a hard time. SOmething to look into for that Sunforger package, especially if you go that route, would be Rakdos Charm for repeatable grave hate and Bathe in Light as a similar ambush card to Thundermaw and Subjugator.

Nice deck, though. =3

If you're going the Sunforger route, I'd recommend Tithe and Mistveil Plains . You might also want a redirect and fork effect for the package. I'd also recommend Rakdos Charm , if only for the repeatable grave hate that setup would provide.

Speaking of grave hate, you'd definitely want to slot in that Bojuka in your Maybeboard. Also speaking of the Maybeboard, Phyrexian Reclamation is a wonderful card for abusing ETBs and Rakdos the Defiler or Master of Cruelties when combined with a sac outlet. Food for thought. =3

My Queen Marchesa deck, For da Kween!, should give you some ideas for the Sunforger package.

I'mma also leave my Kaalia deck, Hardcore Heavenly Inferno here for ya in case it gives you some ideas.

Happy gaming! :)

(March 2021) I am currently considering swapping:

Mainboard

  1. 4 Dragonskull Summit for 4 Cavern of Souls
  2. 2 Goblin Instigator for 2 Spike Jester

Sideboard

  1. 3 Nihil Spellbomb for 2 Rakdos Charm
  2. 2 Goblin Chainwhirler for 3 Pithing Needle

I'm going to go ahead and start on ramp here, you have only a couple pieces of pretty bad ramp.

So I really recommend picking up Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Wild Growth , Rakdos Signet , Golgari Signet and Gruul Signet . Those are all really good because they can come down early, they get you more mana to play Mario and Luigi earlier, they can help you play your bigger cards earlier, and they can be sacrificed to the brothers.

If you want to find room, Cultivate , Harrow , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , and Boundless Realms are all really really good, but not quite as necessary here as they can't be sacrificed to the brothers.

A couple other random suggestions that work great here are Solemn Simulacrum , Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , and Burnished Hart .

The player with the most mana is often the player in the best position in EDH, so mana ramp is important.

You also want some good interaction, which isn't quite as relevant with the brothers but it's still very important. Rakdos Charm , Terminate , Abrade , Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy (which are a bit pricier), Doom Blade effects such as Cast Down , Ultimate Price , Go for the Throat and Heartless Act , Lightning Bolt , Nature's Claim are all pretty solid ones. The purpose is just to be able to stop someone from killing you, remember not to be aggressive and kill things without reason.

Casualties of War is pretty cool too, I just like the card.
