hmm. those be good cards. here's what i think:
Ball Lightning is cheap, is strong, has both trample and haste. downside is it's good for only one turn. but i do see your reason for Blood Lust. the Ball Lightning becomes a 10/1 with Trample and Haste and with it being an instant you can trigger it anytime you want. however a better instant, if you can find one, is Enrage. with that card you can choose how strong to make Ball Lightning. and with 21 mountains each producing triple mana you can pour a ton of mana into Enrage to make the Ball Lightning even more powerful.

gflshade great question!
It kinda depends on the long term goals, so investing $40 in a good Boros mana base may be what you want, that way you can use the cards for other Boros/multicolored decks.
Besides mana base though, if I only had $40 to spend on this deck, I'd start with Recruiter of the Guard, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Enlightened Tutor, Sculpting Steel, and Steelshaper's Gift. All of these cards are great and most importantly can be used in almost any deck with these colors. Don't get something like Sneak Attack though because that's a splurge item :)
The deck is nice because the gimmick theme keeps the price down. Ball Lightning creatures are all 50 cents because they're pretty bad anywhere else haha
Most of the price comes from all the value cards like Sun Titan, Solemn Simulacrum, Well of Lost Dreams, and Feldon of the Third Path. That's nice because they're pretty solid cards and again, fit into many decks.
Hope some of this helps!

lukas96 Grubbernaut I think testing is in order. I've heard the same thing about Magma Jet just not bring right for the deck and Hellspark Elemental doesn't feel quite right either but I'll test them both. Right now the Ball Lightning has been working but I think I'm a hard pool it might not be right. Do you guys have any other suggestions?

Three mana for Ball Lightning is pretty slow in a format with such an abundance of 1-mana removal; Hellspark Elemental seems a bit safer and even if it gets killed, you've got Unearth to bring it back.

I'll throw my hat in with my personal "lol" deck:

It's all about doubling down on the efficiency of Ball Lightning "sack at end of turn" creatures. Sneak Attack a Spark Trooper, pump with Hazoret's Favor and Fatal Frenzy, attack, then sack to Brion Stoutarm at end of turn! 5 mana, 32 damage, 32 life, 4 "sack at end of turn" effects!

Yeah i've already changed the edicts this morning but i forgot to update here.
I found Shield Spheres really useful since my Red deck friend runs 4xVexing Devil, 4xBall Lightning, 2xBladetusk Boar and Sword of Feast and Famine, so have a 0 drop 0/6 can help me save removals for the (not so much) later big flyers like Thundermaw Hellkite.
Also there's none other me that plays Black, so Doom Blades are prettu much ok.

Yep, i have two opponents: one have a red dragon/burn with the biggest threats be the likes of Ball Lightning, Thundermaw Hellkite and Vexing Devil on turn one every single time lol. The other one has a green elves but i already beaten him easily with some mass removal like Infest.
I've got one Tragic Slip, but i think it's a lot situational, since if it is the only spot removal in my hand i'll be in trouble with a mere -1/-1. I've 4xVictim of Night sideboarded and well, i think i must try first and see if the Fatal Pushes can be good or replace them.
I've got even 2xSurgical Extraction sideboarded and i find it really useful... but i'm afraid to find it when i would need better a discard. Even this i must try first!
