Rite of Consumption
As an additional cost to play Rite of Consumption, sacrifice a creature.
Rite of Consumption deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target player. You gain life equal to the damage dealt this way.

Dead_Blue_ I definitely think Apostle's Blessing is a strong choice, especially as a sideboard option against Chalice of the Void to swap out Disciple of the Vault, and it has the added benefit of being especially strong in the current multicolor-piled meta. I don't know that I quite understand Rite of Consumption, though. I get the idea behind suggesting it, but in most cases I'd much rather have a main-field body like Disciple of the Vault or Zulaport Cutthroat that acts as a latent combo piece until the last piece resolves than a sorcery-speed payoff.
I've added both to the maybeboard. I'll likely put Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard (possibly over the mana-intensive Murderous Rider).
Thank you for the suggestions!

Rite of Consumption For the combo payoff

Rite of Consumption, Tend the Pests, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Feed the Pack
Tend the Pests especially because its an instant that can react to an opponents removal.
If you need to bring the price down you have a couple $5 lands that could be replaced easily. Basics or even cheap guildgates work in a two color deck.
Fractal Harness to add counters.

I second the idea of looking into a sacrifice-matters strategy. It's a good archetype for Rakdos that can be played on a low budget in casual settings. In my deck, Sacrifice in Flame, I make use of free sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder to get value out of sacrificing things, especially if those things are actually my opponent's creatures stolen via Act of Treason effects like Kari Zev's Expertise, Claim the Firstborn, or Bloody Betrayal. You can also sac for damage with Thud, Rite of Consumption, and other Flings, something that makes big cards with downside like Abyssal Persecutor, Desecration Demon, and Goldnight Castigator much better without needing a Harmless Offering or the like. As you can see, demons often take a starring role in such decks and from what you have here, it does look like you enjoy demons. The tribe isn't super well supported, but you could take a look at Raphael, Fiendish Savior or Liliana's Contract.

Ok so this deck is really cool, and I don't feel like dogging on it too much, but i feel like there are a ton of wasted slots here. I get the need to push damage, but isn't Ragged Veins just an awful way to kill an opponent? I do understand the usage, to flash in on a creature about to get absolutely pummeled by a Souleater. But can't you just do the same with Apostle's Blessing, Rite of Consumption, or better yet Gods Willing? Idk, it just kinda gets on my nerves. Also, if Trespassing Souleater is intended to roleplay as a lifesink, then why not just use Blood Celebrant? It's quite cheap, and can filter mana if things get hairy. Also, the lack of card draw and playsets in a combo deck really doesn't sit right with me. Possibly try to make nessessary cuts to make the deck more consistent overall. Also, for the love of god, please cut Scoured Barrens for Silverquill Campus for the long-game.

MagicMarc: Rakdos with lifegain lol I like the idea just bc it's unusual. Preypiecer would be interesting with lifelink creatures. Especially lifelinked creatures pumped by Unspeakable Symbol. Though I suppose Furnace of Rath would suffice with Mogis as the commander.
Been exploring other options too. Willowdusk, Essence Seer caught my eye. Could make it revolve around evasive lifelink creatures and Vito effects. Pay lots of life say to a Wall of Blood or Murderous Betrayal, Lurking Evil, Unspeakable Symbol, Phyrexian Processor ect. Gain it all back when you slap the +1/+1 counters on a lifelink critter and swing. Needs more of a setup with Willowdusk and the cards are all playable with just Vito (with his effect). Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption would be hilarious includes. Add Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord for giggles. I even thought of running Jarad at the helm. With a lifegain suite and Wall of Blood, Jarad can one shot the table. Ntm there are so many ways to tutor for WoB in golgari. Unspeakable Symbol works great with him too. I'm sure there are more examples with Jarad but I have yet to look into it.
Thanks yet again! Though I may just brew that Rakdos deck as it's intriguing as is Jarad with a lifegain twist.

Definitely drop red and run 1 or 2 Rite of Consumption !!! and I think you should definitely look into Supernatural Stamina as well as Blessed Defiance ! I would also recommend you run some direct removal and make this more of a midrange deck. Unmake and Cast Down are both good choices :) oh and I'd also run at least two copies of Guardians of Akrasa especially if you indeed drop red.
