I agree with Memphismaymagic5 on Kolaghan's Command. You could put 1-2 in the SB. It would be good against Affinity and any control decks. Imho burn decks work well with 2ish 3 cmc spells.
If you're adding a green land for Destructive Revelry, I would add two lands instead and put 4 Atarka's Command in as well. It's just that good. It's basically a Boros Charm and Skullcrack in one card.

On the topic of Rift Bolt. I hate how you have to wait till the next turn for the damage to go through. Sometimes you have two lands and a Rift Bolt and you want to win the game immediately but you can't.
I also might swap a couple of fetch lands for Blackcleave Cliffs this weekend and see how it goes.

Thanks for the tip guys. I really like GeminiSpartanX idea on a single Stomping Ground and a set of Destructive Revelry for the sideboard, so I'm going to remove the Smash to Smithereens and replace them. As Deputy_Cofax said the artifact hate on the sideboard is great, but the deck does lack enchantment hate and I really need a way to destroy Leyline of Sanctity. Kolaghan's Command however, is a bit too high mana cost for me, but I will try it out this weekend and see how it goes.

You may want to make a few changes to this list if you want to finish 1st in a local event. I'd start by going up to 4 Rift Bolts and removing the Aphotic Wisps. I know burn gets blocked by big creatures, but lately the big creatures that see play are black (Death's Shadow, Gurmag Angler, etc) so the wisps aren't as good. I'd also go up to the full set of Eidolons in place of a Shard Volley. It just hoses some decks (UR Gifts Storm in particular). You're running so many fetchlands, but since you're only 2 colors and your list doesn't include Grim Lavamancer, you could shave a few of them for 2-3 Blackcleave Cliffs to give you a few % points in the mirror match or against other aggressive decks. The boros versions have made the swap to using a number of Inspiring Vantages, and after testing it out I can understand why. There's also nothing holding you back from throwing in a single Stomping Ground for a set of Destructive Revelry in your SB to battle decks packing Leyline of Sanctity, since that card is quite brutal against burn normally. Hope some of that makes sense and good luck!

Entrei, Oketra's last mercy won't be played as mush as a lot of people are thinking. Timely Reinforcements is a much better option. Not only do you not want to really do it until around 5 life, but reinforcements is more survivable if you get Skullcracked or Atarka's Commanded. You can use timely reinforcements with value at any time and it's still devastating, plus it has the added vesatility of tokens. Therefore I don't see it being replaced and people won't run that much devotion against burn. As far as Leyline of Sanctity goes, they have just as much of a chance as you do to draw into Destructive Revelry and mise we'll play two turns to see if you draw it while establishing the mana, DarkLaw.
I see how the deck is linear, and that can be played around by stoping their options by drawing your options. Which, isn't that how magic is? So if you get mad about not drawing your answers, you're mad at your luck, which is a large part of magic. So I don't see the use in getting mad about the deck. I can see the it's not interactive and boring to play against part, I get that a lot actually. That's probably the best argument against playing it. The players calling it a non-deck are just what run through my head a lot.

The best Advice I can give is since Goblin Guide has gone down in price now is the time to try to pick them up. Also Inspiring Vantage is a GREAT budget alternative to fetches along with the Clifftop Retreats you already have. Another card I've been playing around with is Bedlam Reveler as a 1 or 2 of. I'm thinking the correct number is 1 but if it resolves late game it gives you some reach in your more grindy matchups.
I'm also seeing alot of hate for Eidolon of the Great Revel here. It is possibly your BEST card. Ignore anyone who says otherwise. Burn is a race, plain and simple. You use Eidolon of the Great Revel for the same reason you use Flame Rift in legacy. While it is a symmetrical effect you come out on top because your doing WAAAY to much damage WAAAY to quickly. Then if they want to deal with your threats or counter your spells they have to take 2 damage to do it. Most of the time in modern you cast this on turn 3 after you've done 3 damage to them with a burn spell and 1 or 2 damage with a creature and they've already fetched for 1. They're down to 15 on turn 3, you cast another burn spell and they're down to 12 then Eidolon of the Great Revel hits the table.
If you want to do any tournaments or FNM you need a sideboard for 1 card alone... Leyline of Sanctity. In Boros Wear / Tear is your best/most versatile card to deal with that. Chalice of the Void on 1 sucks as well and Wear / Tear deals with that too. Other options for artifacts are Smash to Smithereens and Destructive Revelry if you add green but that's a whole other conversation. Some good cards for the mirror are Dragon's Claw on a budget and Kor Firewalker without a budget (because you need fetchlands to guarantee your able to cast him). Deflecting Palm is one of my favorite cards in the game altogether. The looks on peoples faces are great when it resolves against Infect their Wurmcoil Engine. Also i'd suggest some Path to Exile's for anything else.
Hope this helps and I'm always happy to see another person playing Modern (even if it is at kitchen tables ;p)
Just for some background I play Modern with a splash of Legacy Burn. The modern paper decks I own are Affinty, Burn, Soul Sisters, and Abzan. Soul Sister's is one of my favorite decks it just can't win most of the time :.(... With that being said the card I am most scared to see across the table whenever I play ANY of those decks is Eidolon of the Great Revel.
