Good list! I got some ideas for my own, so thanks!

In terms of enablers, Keen Duelist and Descent into Avernus are quite strong. Walking Ballista (and to a lesser extent Hangarback Walker) also makes a great enabler in the early game or a giant threat in the mid/late game. Cryptolith Fragment  Flip is great as a ramp spell that fixes and also enables casting Rakdos. I am also playing Insolent Neonate, which has worked out surprisingly well, though there may be better options out there. I see you're not running Heartless Hidetsugu, which I think is a must-have for this deck. It makes dumping out your hand and killing every opponent trivially easy.

When it comes to payoffs, I really like playing as many colourless cards as possible to really take advantage of Rakdos. I see you're missing Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Emrakul, the Promised End in your top-end. In terms of other colourless cards, I like Duplicant as a potentially free removal spell, Wurmcoil Engine for the value, Myr Battlesphere for early damage output and Steel Hellkite as a flying threat that can wipe out huge chunks of the board.

When it comes to coloured payoffs, I stopped playing cards that cost more than or in their costs, as they wouldn't play well with the Rakdos discount. I do like Sheoldred, Whispering One, Knollspine Dragon and Balefire Dragon.

With Whip of Erebos and Exquisite Blood in the deck, is seems like Sanguine Bond would be a great include as a combo finisher.

In terms of cuts, Lightning Bolt seems like an easy one to let go. I stopped playing haste-givers because I found myself playing creatures post-combat most of the time anyways, so something like Rising of the Day could be an easy cut. Read the Bones seems like a really weak card that could be replaced with better card draw or recursion (Necropotence?). I see the combo with Tectonic Hazard and Death-rattle Oni, but that seems pretty niche otherwise and could be replaced with more reliable/repeatable enablers instead. Spawn of Mayhem seems pretty awkward in this deck, as you'll rarely be able to cast it before turn 4 even with Spectacle (and we know what turn 4 is for! :) ). The triple-black on Bloodletter of Aclazotz and Dread Cacodemon are pretty restricting, in my opinion. Indulgent Tormenter seems very unreliable and probably not worth the cost.

Jet Medallion and Ruby Medallion are not at their best here, as they reduce colourless costs instead of adding mana, which means that with Rakdos out they may not even do anything.

TheForsakenOne: So, yeah. You got me...I admit, I didn't really -plan- this deck out. I really wanted to build the deck, so I took a lot of Black spells that I enjoy a lot, and threw them together. I mean, to be fair, it works pretty damn good. (lol) I do honestly appreciate the suggestions, however, and plan on implementing what I can. Thank you.

I want to make an argument for Xathrid Gorgon, and please feel free to counter-argument: I like this card because she can shut down Commanders. It doesn't matter if she's fast or not, she doesn't need to be. If I can turn off a Voja, Jaws of the Conclave, an Urza, Lord High Artificer, or even an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, I consider that a win.

Anyway, thanks again for your time and suggestions.

Whoops, here are the most expensive cards in the deck and rough prices currently.

Icbrgr on Is Leyline binding worth it?

It could just be the boomer in me but I have trauma from just needing an answer for Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and hope to as quickly/efficiently REMOVE Grief and also a plausible target for Snapcaster Mage... I know it's a dated card I just am having a hard time letting go... I see march or prismatic filling in though for 9/10 times.

I am also forgetting that I just got these Leyline Bindings so yeah maybe its time to move on.

@Profet93 I had a couple of games with this deck on friday, and I won both of them. Opponents simply did not draw enough answers. Had lot's of fun card in play in both games (e.g., Blinkmoth Urn, Darksteel Monolith, Mirage Mirror, and Planar Bridge). Even with lots of artifact removal in the second game, I was able to hold my ground and kill them with annihilation. In first game I got 8+ permanents from It That Betrays ;-)

I played Artisan of Kozilek in both games without getting anything from the graveyard, so think I might be ready to swap it for Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.

Would also want to find room for Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger so that I can steal extra exiled lands with Oblivion Sower, but it does not feel like a really important interaction
