+1: Chandra, Pyromaster deals 1 damage to target player and 1 damage to up to one target creature that player controls. That creature can't block this turn.
0: Exile the top card of your library. You may play it this turn.
-7: Exile the top ten cards of your library. Choose an instant or sorcery card exiled this way and copy it three times. You may cast the copies without paying their mana costs.

Second thing, I can't see any reason behind Aurelia in sideboard. It's too slow for this deck, especially when you don't really want to sit on more than 4-5 lands in most matchups. Secondly with little amount of creatures in deck, she does not so good as a finisher.
Try to find place for Skullcrack mainboard. Having answer to Sphinx's Revelation is really nice thing to have vs control matchups game 1. Also does good work against any deck that can lifegaian to get out of burn range. I would consider cutting 2 Shock and 1 Chandra, Pyromaster .
Even though this deck does rather ok vs other aggro, consider Boros Reckoner as sideboard, this card also helps vs G/R monsters (not that good against Jund though - they get acess to point removal).
The second I posted this, I realized that Chandra, Pyromaster comes out for 1x Crypt Incursion to offset life loss from Thoughtseize , Read the Bones and Underworld Connections , leaving room for that Drown in Sorrow in the sideboard. Problem solved!
DannyG, I have tried running a draw engine in my previous version and it turns out that I do not need one that badly, at least in this version anyway. It is very difficult to try to find a spot for even 1 or 2 of them (and if anything, the spot would go to Warleader's Helix first since that was the spell I was forced to cut when making this version). The only problems I've had with this deck is just having a more awkward openers than it should on average. Also, Desecration Demon has proven to be a powerhouse against many many matchups and have either won me games or stabilize me out of nowhere and he's probably here to stay.
Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to be able to fit one or two-of of some kind of draw engine in the list (I thought of Chandra, Pyromaster before cutting her for Stormbreath Dragon ), it's just that the list is too tight at the moment.
Thanks for the comment!
Searing Blood and Satyr Firedancer make a really good combo. Also i think Mizzium Mortars should find a place in here. Chandra, Pyromaster is really good, and Awaken the Ancient is nice for devotion. Stormbreath Dragon , and Legion Loyalist should be here also.
So IMO drop the Shock s, Firefist Striker , and Burning-Tree Emissary s.... Add 3xSatyr Firedancer , 3xSearing Blood ,2x Mizzium Mortars 2xStormbreath Dragon , 1xChandra, Pyromaster . If you want to try dropping the Rakdos Cackler for Legion Loyalist thats possible, they are both really good so just go with your gut on that one.

How often do you find yourself alive long enough to be activating the Whip of Erebos rather than playing from your hand? I tried the whip in a similar deck, but found I got almost no use out of its activated ability, just the lifelink. Have you considered Chandra, Pyromaster as a replacement? It has the same CMC as the whip, but an easier cost to hit since it relies on red rather than black, provides timely draw in synergy with your Magma Jet with her +0, or a good stalemate breaker with her +1. She doesn't quite give you the extra life the whip does, but practically gives you 4-5 life as your opponent will almost always swing at her next turn with at least part of his forces.
