You may want the Planeswalkers that add red mana.
Jaya will allow you to get mana and loot. CTOD gives you mana or card advantage. CBP only gets you mana, but comes with a free Shock tacked on as well.

Wily Goblin , Pirate's Pillage , Captain Lannery Storm , Chandra, Bold Pyromancer , Runaway Steam-Kin , Brass's Bounty , Gilded Lotus , and Chromatic Lantern are all reasonable ramp you could use in red. :D

Gilded Lotus and any of the other variations of it out there

The mana curve is suffering. In case this helps you, I'll point out that with only 20 lands, especially in a deck with >60 cards, those cards in the deck that cost 5+, and often those that cost 4, will be dead cards in hand on the turn you'd want to cast them.
I use deckstats.net to help me calculate my ratios of various types of cards.
A few examples. With 20 out of 63 cards being lands, and 2 of 63 being mana-producing 4-drops, there is a 32% chance of having either your Grand Warlord Radha or your Chandra, Torch of Defiance in hand on turn 4. Even if that 32% works in your favor, you still need 4 lands, which has a 49% chance of happening by turn 4. Multiply .32 by .49 and the odds of having both one of those 4-drops plus 4 lands in hand by turn 4 is only a 15.7% chance.
The chance of having at least one of these 5-drops in hand by turn 5 is 58%, but the chance of having 5 lands by then is 31%. The chance of having both is only 18%, about one out of five games.
If the land count went up to 24, the chance of playing a 4-drop on turn 4 becomes 30%, a 5-drop on turn 5 becomes 30%, and a 6-drop on turn 6 becomes 13.3%. The combined chance of any of these happening by turn 6 becomes ~46%. With 20 lands, the combined chance is ~29%. To summarize, in my opinion you should either cut the 5- and 6-drops and replace them with low-curve spells, or you should cut some of the less impactful low-curve spells and bring up the land count. Otherwise you can't cast certain spells reliably.

agreed its nowhere near as good in all areas... more so just attempting to mimic it as close as possible...at least deck philosophy of skred red.
Shivan Fire caught my attention because of its ability to grow in the late game in the way skred gets stronger as more snow permanents are in play... perhaps Banefire would be more suitable in this aspect... idk still just an idea t this point.
mimicing Blood Moon is by far the toughest thing to do... is this the main thing you were getting at with not having the same factors in standard as modern Boza?... Blood Sun/Alpine Moon seem to be dead in all scenarios i typically come across/can think of in arena....but Damping Sphere might be good in those izzet matchups with Guttersnipe/Electrostatic Field/Niv-Mizzet, Parun... otherwise just might be nice to slow the creatures from being all dumped into play in one turn against the merfolk matchups or similar.
Sarkahn is no koth but i figure he's a better option than Chandra, Bold Pyromancer (i think anyway...) Have his abilities be used to ditch the least useful card in hand to hopefully topdeck something more relevent and his other ability to lay down a threat like Verix Bladewing and still leave mana open for another burn spell of even just pay that kicker cost.... his ultimate of 4 5/5 flyers is kinda cool but yeah its not koths emblem by a long shot.

Also Chandra, Bold Pyromancer or any version would be good to have

Hey ZolvaNation, do you think Jaya Ballard or Chandra, Bold Pyromancer would work for my deck? I'm not a fan of their cmc, but just curious. I'm also looking at ways to increase my card advantage. Warlord’s Fury has got my interest there.

Hey Kalink27 I see this has been around for a while but I hope this still helps. I'm not sure how your playgroup is but I'd defiantly recommend more lands and ramp. Also potentially draw.
Not convinced about Mindcrank seems to me like your giving any graveyard manipulation heaps of value and unless your meta has lots of lifegain I cant see you milling someone.
Looks like fun though!!!
Would be awesome if you could give my deck some thoughts!
