Chandra, Acolyte of Flame Discussion

I would go with 3x Anax, 3x Torbran as they are legendary and I would also drop 2x Embercleave because Legendary and situational / high cost vs control decks. Thats 4 less cards, instead I would add 4x Rimrock Knight to boost your Fervent Champion first strike or to deal 2 more damage to face.
Also don't see the use of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame as you don't have anything to revive. She will be only be 2x 1/1 in 90% of yours games. Maybe add Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage instead to remove 2 blockers or 2x Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded as the devotion to red is very high in this deck.

+1 Create two 3/1 ELemental creature tokens with haste. Sacrifice them at the beginning of your next end step.
-1 Draw a card. If it was a noncreature card, Chandra, the Firestorm deals 1 damage to target opponent. If it was a creature card, exile it. You may play it as long as you control Chandra, the Firestorm.
-7 Chandra, the Firestorm deals damage equal to half your life total, rounded down.

To preface this comment: Tinkering with different cool cards is what deck builders do, and I know that. My comment will, however, be based on possibly making the deck more competitive.
I feel like you're really missing out if you're playing Silverwing Squadron and Master Splicer. I like the concept with them, but you don't get the attack trigger from squardon, and splicer doesn't get you a ton of bang for your buck. I might recommend Charming Prince or Elite Guardmage. These would help with aggro matchups to slow them down.
I also think that going down on Legion Warboss is a choice is a mistake. You really want the turn 3 warboss into a t4 Winota. I can see that you took them out in your revisions, but I personally really like the card. 4 of these would help with control and ramp matchups to aggro them out or outvalue them.
I also think that Gingerbrute is an odd choice. There are a few reasons why this card is really good, but I don't believe you really want it in this deck. I would err more towards a way to get multiple triggers on Winota.
I like the Chandra, Acolyte of Flame as a way to create tokens or recast raise the alarm. I like Teferi, Time Raveler as protection during your burst turns as well as a way to bounce back etb cards like Agent of Treachery, or if you choose to run it, Charming Prince.
The sideboard really depends on meta, so that's up to you. Main things to keep in mind if you're on Arena post-Platinum is that you'll be going up against a lot of fires and control decks in Bo3, and a lot of fires and sacrifice decks in Bo1.
Good luck with brewing! I really like the potential that Winota has, and I'm interested to see where a deck like this goes post rotation without Agent of Treachery.

This seems like a very cool deck! It would be helpful if you put the pointed cards in the description. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame might be good because she can flashback spells and put counters on some of the other walkers in the deck. Jeskai Ascendancy and Whirlwind of Thought are both good additions over Outlaws' Merriment.

DanMcSharp I am just brewing this up now, so no play-testing yet. I'm also battling with my wife so we can buy a new computer, and no Arena until I win that battle.
Chandra, Acolyte of Flame is not here to provide mutate targets. She is here to provide self-sacrificing Role Reversal targets, and to recast Callous Dismissal and Role Reversal. Also, to pump up The Royal Scions and/or combo with them for some beats. Chandra Acolyte may well be my favorite card in Standard.

Maybe I'm missing something, but you seem to be counting on Chandra, Acolyte of Flame to provide mutate targets? Pretty sure the mutated creature would just die at the end of turn anyway since they are not really "new" creatures. Maybe I'm wrong though, did you test it?
However Callous Dismissal should provide a good target, the extra counter is nice.

Let's start xD First: -Creatures: seems that you want some ur kiln field delver, then instead of nivix (which cost a lot of mana) and curious homunculus, I would put the 4 kiln field. Dreadhorde is perfect (I would go with 3), and then you have to make a decision, young pyromancer or thing in the ice (mix them is a nonmbo).
-Instants: 4 opt yes or yes haha xD, and maybe thought scour (3-4) (dreadhorde). I think you need more counters at least 2-3 remands, 1 dispel, 2-3 leaks.
-Sorcery: serum is perfect, maybe 3-4 slip through space. If you choose thought scour then get out of sleight of hand, else 4 sleight of hand xd.
-Planeswalkers: maybe 2 Chandra, Acolyte of Flame or 2 scions.
-Lands: :C if you are in budget i'll go with 4 shivan, 2 sulfur, and 9 islands, 3-4 mountains, and why not Faerie Conclave, I use it in my ur delver and is nice. No more than 19-20 lands.

Nice deck! But I agree with previous commenters. It needs card advantage and more explosive plays.
Maybe the way to go with Winota is with a non- human Soldier token package with multiple anthems like Spear of Heliod, Icon of Ancestry, Hall of Triumph, Intangible Virtue and Crusade paired with human lords and non- human lords... Field Marshal, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Paragon of New Dawns, Celestial Crusader and Angel of Jubilation come to mind.
