Looks pretty good. But you should remove Magma Jet to put in 4 Chain Lightning because it's much faster.

Chain Lightning is pauper-legal. Definitely recommend including a playset of it in place of Incinerate.

Fireblast is also a must include. It's essentially a free 4 damage for finishing off your opponent. Probably would only run as a 2-of, though, in place of a couple copies of Expedite.

Adding a couple copies of Forgotten Cave to your manabase to filter out dead draws would also probably be helpful.

Nice list! Might just build it myself.

Chain Lightning isn't modern legal. You can replace it with Lightning Bolt.

Hey! I love your deck! +! from me! Raze seems weak. I recommend either Sinkhole or Chain Lightning

I have one quite like it Burn the Land and the Hand and I'd love your input

Hmm,actually this looks pretty solid. I do want to ask a bout a few cards I saw in the new set though that you don't have.

Mavren Fein, Duck Apostle seems like a better option than Heir of Falkenrath  Flip.

Also Legion's Landing definitely feels better than Carrier Thrall.

Also, Sanctum Seeker was spoiled as well, though I'm not sure where to cut for it unless you would want it over Brutal Hordechief. Personally I'd want both, but obviously you can't fit everything in here.

Speaking of which, Boros Charm seems way better than Chain Lightning. For one extra mana you get 2 other options, or at least you get 1 extra damage without the chance for retaliation.

For some cards though I feel they'd be good, but where to cut is a problem again.

Iroas, God of Victory, Sunforger, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Blade of the Bloodchief, and Mardu Ascendancy all seem like solid options for an aggro build. Had you already considered them?

I'd take out Commune with Lava and Banefire. This is BURN. You don't need to draw cards and if you have more than five lands you've lost! Chain Lightning and Rift Bolt should do the trick!
