Also, take out a lot of your ramp. 8-12 ramp cards are recommended for most EDH decks and 24 ramp cards are way too much in my opinion. You cheat your dragons into play most of the time. Take out Braid of Fire, Caged Sun, Coalition Relic, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Everflowing Chalice, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Gilded Lotus, Mana Vault, Mox Opal, Star Compass, Thran Dynamo, and Worn Powerstone. If you add in Sword of the Animist and Solemn Simulacrum, that brings you down to 12 ramp cards, 3 of which double the mana your Mountains produce and two of which are lands that don't take up spell slots.

Shard Phoenix? Seems janky, but I like the premise of discard something to Hazoret, then returning it.
Let's take a look at some burn spells:
Pyrokinesis for a surprise, Increasing Vengeance, Fork & Reverberate to copy em, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Skred if you just want to run snow mountains for reasons. Fiery Confluence is good for all modes, and maybe Collective Defiance?
I think Illusionist's Bracers ought to work.
Braid of Fire is a very janky way at generating boatloads of red mana to use only during your upkeep. could sink a ton into instant burn spells?
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seems obligatory.
And for the non-budgetary purposes: Gauntlet of Might
Latulla, Keldon Overseer seems like janky fun.

Deck seems pretty solid already!
The one card in your deck that seems out of place is Braid of Fire. Since that mana enters your pool on your upkeep, you can't use it in your main phase. Unless a card like Kruphix, God of Horizons says otherwise the mana would leave your pool and thus could only cast instants with it. I feel like that for your deck it's nice, but doest work with most of your other cards. With your current mainboard configuration i'm also not too in love with Whip of Erebos as most of your creatures are small until they can do damage which makes them not as great to bring back. I could see it being justified maybe but for right not it seems a bit low power.
You also have 7 cards that have an ability trigger when you deal damage. Makes me wonder if Temur Battle Rage has a home here as it means that the creature will do damage twice in the same combat. Even with things like Vampire Outcasts it could do a decent amount of damage.
As for your sideboard, I think that needs a bit more work than the maindeck. Generally speaking, the sideboard is used to change your deck to give you matchups agaisnt other decks. For instance if you were against a graveyard based deck, you might be able to being in something like Leyline of the Void. As it is it appears to be more of a collection of cards that you couldnt find room for in the mainboard. Some of the cards in there also seem to be a tad out of place. Vicious Shadows for instance costs a lot of mana. Yes it's powerful when it hits play, but without any ramp i think it is pretty likely for it to be stranded in your hand for most of the game.
Hope this helps! again seems like a pretty solid deck already.

The problem is that you can play only 4x Braid of Fire - and digging/tutoring for it is not really an option :/

Groovy. I'm trying to put a list together and I'm seeing why Braid of Fire isn't run. The card takes up space for a removal spell. Anybody have a list that's done reasonably well?

Braid of Fire would be cool to pay the firebreathing costs too and at least still gives you 1 devotion. Not sure if it would fit or be competitive, but certainly would be cool.
