I am building a deck themed around the torture cards and I could use a hand.
This is what I've got right now:

4X Cursed Rack


4X The Rack


4X Ankh of Mishra


4X Skull Cage


3X Mind Rot


4X Paupers' Cage


4X Rackling


1X Sol Ring


1X Maga, Traitor to Mortals


2X Nyxathid


3X Alley Grifters

 If you have any ideas for makeing the deck better please tell me.

No Iron Maiden ? Wheel of Torture ? Misers' Cage ? Scalding Tongs ?


I have a similar deck with all you mentionned and those ^ but I also have Ivory Tower  for me and Teferi's Puzzle box so I can get different cards on the field to really cover the gaps.
My decks, mostly casuals, but some I use online with some small changes: http://www.mtgvault.com/Profile.aspx?UserID=91484

Well, You see the main stratagy is to play Cursed Rack as soon as possible then force your opponent's hand down to 1 card at most so your other cards hurt them as much as possible, So Iron Maiden and Misers' Cage don't really fit, But I will add Wheel of Torture to the deck If I cant get the Ankh of Mishra's I need.
The main problem I see with this deck is a lack of creatures though.
rackling, viseling, falkenrath torturer spring imediatly to mind

If you read my decklist you will see that I have 4 copies of Rackling already, Falkenrath Torturer and Viseling dose not really fit in with the deck's strategy.

Revised Decklist:
 

4X Cursed Rack


4X The Rack


4X Ankh of Mishra or Wheel of Torture


4X Skullcage


4X Mind Rot


4X Paupers' Cage


4X Rackling


1X Sol Ring


4X Alley Grifters


2X Nyxathid

Gnat Miser and Locust Miser, perhaps?

Cheers!

I will consider it as it combos with Scalding Tongs, But I would have to remove a few cards to make room for it and I don't see how I could do that.
The art of Earthbind fits your theme, yet the card itself does little for your deck.

Still, its there if you want it.

Bottomless Pit plus Megrim is great for some lulz. It also combos well with your The Rack-ish effects.
I'd put Yixlid Jailer for good form.  Flavorfully fits, cheap creature, doesn't affect you and protect you from many decks (dredge, unheart, flashback, etc...).

Ok man, First I have already considered Bottomless Pit, Also Liliana's Caress dose basically the same thing as Megrim for one mana less.

I will consider it, Maybe I could remove one or two copys of Alley Grifters.
