Ash Zealot Discussion

I'd consider trading a couple mountains for Stomping Ground or similar to add a little more green. Just so you don't end up mana-screwed and your emissary and two planes walkers in hand.

I'm looking at running a similar Gruul aggro deck except I'm using the revolt triggers to get a more explosive start. I think this deck at the moment is torn between being a proper burn aggro and/or a creature heavy aggro. I think you need to decide on which you would prefer to run.
If you want to go burn aggro keep the Goblin Guide, Monastery Swiftspear, maybe Vexing Devil. Also Eidolon of the Great Revel would be a better fit over Ash Zealot. Remove the rest of the creatures and fill your mainboard with more burn spells Lightning Bolt, Rift Bolt etc etc..
If you go the creature route I'd remove all burn spells except Lightning Bolt and Atarka's Command and fill the rest with haste creatures or even just 1 mana drops like Experiment One, Kird Ape, Wild Nacatl (they work really well with Burning-Tree Emissary) etc.
Anyways just my 2 cents, I play tested your deck against some other decks aggro, control, and it just wasn't fast enough so I think this should help out a bit. :)

I remember seeing that card but I hadn't though of that combo!
How many would you suggest and what to remove?

Ash Zealot, Boros Reckoner, Eidolon of the Great Revel, and Blood Moon/Magus of the Moon are the best you got for actual control effects. Some of them are pretty pricey though. I think if you are going to spend any money on cards to get, eidolon is your best bet as far as pricey cards go, as it pairs well on the field with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. Moon effects are less important if you run heretic cathar anyway. zealot is good for a sideboard against zombies or other reanimators. boros reckoner you could take or leave. Just some ideas for solid red additions to get the most out of the splash of red

The reason for Ash Zealot is first strike, menace, haste, and instant burn all stack damage on either my opponent or forces them to chump. Aware or not. The secondary ability of Ash Zealot is just an uncommon perk.

Ash Zealot is IMHO sideboard-only card. There will be no point in her trigger against most of your opponents. I'd suggest Kari Zev, Skyship Raider or Stormblood Berserker as alternative -drops or Village Messenger if you really want Haste'r
Cut 1 or 2 Hazorets. She's legendary so you don't want to draw 2 copies at the same time
Don't see any reasonable usage of Elixir of Immortality. Could you please explain?
It's good idea to run 4-8 fetches even in mono-colored Modern deck
P.S. What happened to your deck's description?

:). Now lets move to the next card im sceptic about.. Deviant Glee. Removing the creature targeted by Deviant Glee as a response to it being cast is what is called a 2-for-1 (dont know how new you are, but you should be familiar with this term unless you are new new). I think even Lightning Strike would be better as its easier to resolve and Deviant Glee takes another turn, a creature and for that creature to survive to get more profit. Altho, i would not recommend Lightning Strike in modern. How about Bump in the Night or Lava Spike (or both?).
