3 sulfurous springs
4 tainted peak
3 wasteland


4 dark ritual
4 sinkhole
4 hymn to tourach
4 duress
4 lightning bolt
3 incinerate
2 diabolic edict


3 the rack
2 cursed scroll


4 hypnotic specter
3 phyrexian negator
2 blazing specter

I'd run your mana base a little more like:
9 Swamp
2 Mountain
4 Sulfurous Springs
3 Urborg Volcano / Rocky Tar Pit
2 Wasteland

I like color consistency, and I worry about Tainted Peak with only 9 Swamps. You don't have many one drops, and many of your early plays are more defensive anyway (Sinkhole, Bolt). Admittedly, you also have some very aggressive ones, like Hymn and Duress. Wasteland is big, but between your discard and Sinkholes, you shouldn't miss them too much.

I'd run the fourth Incinerate over a The Rack (I abhor that grammar), and 2 more Cursed Scrolls instead of the remaining 2 The Racks.

I would swap 2 Blazing Specters and 2 Negators for like, 4 Dauthi Horror so that you've got some early pressure.
