Ash Zealot Discussion

Love the deck so far... So red is usually very aggressive (of course), so maybe you could consider cards that pressure the life total a bit more? Maybe Ash Zealot, Lightning Helix, Deflecting Palm, etc... That might make harsh mentor stronger if the opponent just simply can't afford to use abilities.

Eidolon of the Great Revel might be good in here. Surprisingly powerful against storm and other T1 decks because of all the tutors they run.
Stranglehold is always good for a R/G deck, especially stax.
Spellshock might be pretty good.
Mondronen Shaman Flip is also pretty sweet if you can get it to flip.
Ash Zealot can be nice against graveyard strategies, of which there are a lot.
Dosan the Falling Leaf.

I own the following cards, and if you want them for the final build they're yours:
Impulsive Maneuvers, Widespread Panic, Custody Battle, Wild Ricochet, Sulfuric Vortex, Five-Alarm Fire, Fighting Chance, Heartless Hidetsugu, Bearer of the Heavens, Wildfire, Charmbreaker Devils, Flame Fusillade, Antagonism, Wild Evocation, Starke of Rath, Sin Prodder, Incite Rebellion, Scrambleverse, Tyrant of Discord, Smoke, Vulshok Battlemaster, Winter Sky, War Elemental, Power Surge, Galvanoth, Grand Melee, Mages' Contest, Chain Reaction, Breaking Point, Witch Hunt, Howl of the Horde, Thieves' Auction, Aftershock, Guttersnipe, Goblin Diplomats, Curse of Stalked Prey, Mob Rule, Mass Mutiny, Ash Zealot, Warp World.
I know a lot of those are more stax-y and group-slug-y than chaotic but some of them are quite chaotic and some of them force opponents to do something they don't want to do.

Foundry Street Denizen/Flameblade Adept/Goblin Bushwhacker/Reckless Bushwhacker/Zurgo Bellstriker? Ash Zealot is ok sideboard, though woe reaper does a lot to fix that. Its an archetype I can see being powerful, I'm just not confident the support is there, or the correct colours with Bramblewood Paragon out there.

In all honesty I'm not certain that Harsh Scrutiny and Duress are up to speed if you're playing aggro. I get the benefits, but you want to pump out creatures quick and hit with them before your opponent gets the chance to stabilise.
Consider Blightning instead of Rakdos's Return. It's at about 0.70 a piece right now and for CMC 3 you get 3 damage and 2 discard instead of just a value of 1 for X meaning 1 damage and 1 discard. Blightning is more cost-efficient and especially in aggro you want to hit hard and fast, not wait until you can pump up your spell to X=6 or 7.
I run a similar list and included Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and some extra unleash creatures such as Gore-House Chainwalker. The second fits the hell theme quite well, and should it be dead, attack with Alesha, tap two black mana and you've got an extra 3/2 swinging out from your graveyard. Of course she can bring back the Gifted Aetherborn as well for a sudden deathtouch getting in for 2.
Another 2-drop to consider is Ash Zealot for both first strike and haste, and depending on who you play against some great graveyard hate, but even without that this is a nice hitter for turn two.

Splash Black and go with Bump in the Night and put in Ash Zealot. Most burn decks also run something akin to Skullcrack, that Personally I'd rather than Desperate Ritual mainboard. Not to mention its WAAAY cheaper than the leylines if budget is that much of a concern. I know you have the leyline in the sideboard but that's pretty costly for a burn deck to cast if you don't have one in your opening hand. The other option I'd suggest over Desperate Ritual is Tormenting Voice. This gives you a way to chuck your extra Mountains and turn them into burn spells. Good Luck!
