Cavalier of Flame Discussion

At this point I'm kind of just thinking about what to cut for more draw power like Tormenting Voice or Faithless Looting, I mean, I already have Cavalier of Flame, Sandstone Oracle and Dragon Mage in the deck already, but doesn't hurt to put in a bit more recursion, I guess.
Overall, if I start with a haste-giver for Ilharg like Generator Servant (along with a big beatstick in my hand), this deck can move pretty fast. I can get Ilharg out and swinging on turn 2-3, and depending on the beatstick, games can end a few turns afterwards.

I played this version (well, my very slightly different build) twice last.
I absolutely walloped a Jund Midrange deck - Game 1 I ended with like 8 Pegasi in play and Game 2 the other guy just up and left after I Shattered the Sky.
But I lost pretty decisively to Jeskai Fires - Game 1 I didn't have an answer to Fires of Invention and got overrun by a Sphinx of Foresight, a Bonecrusher Giant, and a Cavalier of Flame before I could get my shit together. Game 2, I sideboarded out -4 Alseids and -1 Birth of Meletis for +2 Aether Gust, +2 Dovin's Veto, and +1 Heliod's Intervention. I won Game 2 with a stream of removal/denial and 4 rounds of Trawler attacks. Game 3, my opponent drew 3 Fires of Invention! I cancelled the first two, but had nothing for the third. With 6 untapped lands, my opponent dropped Kenrith, the Returned King and a Cavalier of Flame, juiced and hasted them both, and gave me a 17 point hit to the face. No coming back from that.
I'm not really sure what I could have done better to face that deck. But I definitely felt a bit outclassed.

Invader Parasite is an awesome recommendation! It is definitely a better Ogre Arsonist I would rather use Goblin Settler over either since it is one mana less, but it is a little out of my price range. I thought about having a artifact destruction creature like Irreverent Revelers or Ingot Chewer, but I would rather just put in another artifact destruction spell like By Force. I think it has more value and its immediate. Bogardan Hellkite and Cavalier of Flame are a bit more mana intensive and I focused on actual card draw in this deck rather than rummaging. I have been debating Flametongue Kavu from the beginning but am having a hard time thinking of what to substitute it for.

Love the deck! Have you considered Invader Parasite over Ogre Arsonist? I like the exile as my meta has several Muldrotha, Windgrace, and Gitrog decks running around, and the damage is occasionally useful. Irreverent Revelers, Cavalier of Flame, Flametongue Kavu, and Bogardan Hellkite might be up your alley as well!

Ok what route do you want to go is the question there are several most people are going the infinite combo Worldgorger Dragon this not really a new combo just a new shell to put the combo in along with doomsday etc but you can look that one up if you want to jump to that power level.
My deck is more casual friendly Discard with Anje
My play group is more in the tuned casual so I went this route myself and note I moved Master of Cruelties from another deck i had this is a win condition in my deck hit them unblocked then discard madness card for a bolt to face or leverage Syr Konrad, the Grim if he is on the board and discard damage. Not my only but one of them and graveyard fun
This was a budget upgrade with cards I owned already and I bought a few. Maybe this will give you some ideas.
Hope that helps
