Akroan Crusader is similar to Silverfur Partisan but allows you to be more aggressive with your pump spells early in the game, i would cut Burning-Tree Emissary and Abbot of Keral Keep for a set of them.
By the way, Fires of Yavimaya is not modern legal and you have 65 cards on your maindeck.

Things like Rolling Thunder would be insane: for the low low price of , just targeting every creature on the battlefield (even your own, because why not?), you could deal damage divided as you choose, "...and I'll start by choosing 0 damage for all of my stuff". Or, Comet Storm, where dealing X damage to every critter they control becomes free. They would go bonkers with two or more Thaumaturge on the battlefield.
If you go into other colors, you can get some more fun stuff; The most interesting is Profane Command, since you can target every creature on the battlefield, just to make X large, and you can choose something else for the second mode. Then, attack with a likely unblockable army.
Maybe Akroan Crusader to help the pyromancer clutter up the board with tokens?

Baller list, friend. Couple of suggestions:
Spark of Creativity seems rough to use on your own creatures, since it is impulsive draw and you won't get to keep it around... Try Renegade Tactics or Dualcaster Mage or any instant-copying to extract more value from card draw.
Your token-makers are awesome and hilarious (on that note, try Empty the Warrens). However, it seems like you've gotta have a bunch of tokens out already in order to get value from Spawning Breath, etc. Technically, you can tutor for them, but I'd almost rather jam a couple token-producers rather than pay 12 mana for Planar Portal. However, red tokens is not my forte, so...I guess I can only suggest Goblins and Elementals. Akroan Crusader, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder came up after a quick Google search.
I think your "pump" section is also win-condition-worthy. You could cut some of the less helpful spells here after testing for more token producers, though, especially if you Expedite to draw 10 (because you'll draw into your pumping).
I'm glad you reached out for help! Hit me up anytime if I can be of service.

you should definitely have 4 Purphoros, God of the Forge and maybe some Impact Tremors. great deck though +1 from me. are you sure you need the Akroan Crusader and all the combat tricks. you might find better luck with red white.

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.
With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.
Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

Karma1452 ive thought about those two cards. i have full sets of them. Akroan Crusader is a good card, but too slow. i will use buffs after the declare attackers stage, to ramp damage. using that would not give me the surprise aspect of which creature i will buff. Guttersnipe has a special place for me, i love the card, it was in my very first deck. and ive considered putting it in. but i decided to go with the Countryside Crusher, because getting a 3rd land is not something i want and has almost cost me games before.
but thanks for the suggestions :)
