Is this a more creature based aggro deck made with the distinct intention of not being your average burn deck? If not, I wonder at the absence of things like Goblin Guide, Monastery Swiftspear, and other burn staples. If so, then that's why they're not there, no worries. However, either way, why not Bump in the Night? That's essentially a black burn spell with potential (very) late game upside. Also, Searing Blood as a better sideboard answer to small creatures than Godo's Irregulars. Rakdos Charm as a multi-tool? It could act as budget sideboard graveyard hate, destroys a troublesome artifact, or even causes that extra bit of burn against a deck that relies on creatures. You know, at the expense of hurting yourself a bit, but if you're that close to dead you're probably not winning anyway, so who cares about losing three life yourself?

Why Tarfire instead of another burn option? I know you're maxed out on lighting bolts, but if just burning the player isn't good enough (Bump in the Night, Lava Spike) and Rift Bolt is too slow, what about Forked Bolt? It allows you to do the same thing as Tarfire, but also offers the option of taking out a creature with one toughness and also hitting a player for one, or killing two 1/1 creatures at the cost of being a sorcery. Maybe take it out and add in another Seal of Fire because of the revolt trigger? Thoughts? +1

Ok, so Mindmelter is only in there to push the last few points of damage in. I was running a Slither Blade instead for a while, but it did not work well when I used Illusory Wrappings or Reduce in Stature on the tree so I decided to swap Slither Blade out for Mindmelter. The best way to kill your opponent tho is Bump in the Night.

The key thing to know is that damage and life loss are two different things. Losing life is the most common result of taking damage, but it's also possible to lose life without taking any damage (Phyrexian Arena, Bump in the Night, etc.) and there are even some situations where damage doesn't actually cause life loss (the Infect ability on Glistener Elf and friends is the best example).
