The basic idea is to wipe the board and wipe their hand so you have no threats left to deal with but what's on top of their deck. 4 colors means you have the best spells to pick from but mana might be a problem (but it hasn't been yet in 30+ games so take from that what you will.)

4 isolated chapel
2 clifftop retreat
1 dragonskull summit
1 sulfur falls
1 drowned catacombs
4 glacial fortress
4 blood crypt
4 hallowed fountain
4 steam vents

4 bonfire of the damned
3 entreat the angels
3 terminus
4 think twice
4 dreadbore
3 detention sphere
2 supreme verdict
3 gilded lotus
3 azorius keyrune
3 rakdos keyrune
3 rakdos' return

still working on a good sideboard
Possible inclusions to main deck: lingering souls, nichol bolas

Quite often the deck just burns out the opp with miracled bonfire and rakdos' return but the angels/keyrunes have gotten the job done a number of times. any info would be appreciated

try chromatic lantern... it's not a keyrune but helps fixing mana and frees the lotus spot (3 rakdos, 3 lantern, 0-1 azorius might be more than enough). also, olivia is pretty good in this kind of deck. i run a similar deck without white, though i was thinking on adding it, but only for terminus and maybe purify the grave in SB. rakdos return is weak without more discard in the deck (duress, appetite for brains....).

Your deck should do something proactive. Only 3 rakdos return and 3 entreat the angels as win conditions is very low. Try adding some planeswalkers, or indeed, lingering souls, just because certain decks are very good in attrition wars (reanimator), planeswalker control decks, ..., and your winconditions might be to easy to deal with.

If your going to run entreats and bonfires, in a 4cc control deck, boundless realms is probably one of the best cards you can play and also agree about the lantern. Additionally I think a few bolas, should give the re animator deck some problems.

Thanks for all the great advice! Although, it's a bit scary when jacois compliments the deck, makes me think I am doing something wacky. The basic reason I went with 4 colors is so that I could run dreadbore and detention sphere as they are some of the most versatile removal spells. If I was going to cut a color, I think it would have to be either black or blue. If I cut black, I lose dreadbore and rakdos' return. With blue I lose think twice, verdict and sphere.
