Okay, so first of all you need some basic burn spells, Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, and a few others Im sure you can find by looking at a mono red burn list for modern or legacy, now you need a few cards that aren't already in here, Ojutai Exemplars, Ponder, Brainstorm, Slip Through Space, Jeskai Ascendancy, Distortion Strike, Artful Dodge, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Aqueous Form, Niblis of Frost, Monastery Swiftspear, Dragonlord Ojutai, Return to Dust, and that would be a good start for now

I love Jeskai Delver/Prowess decks. They are definitely my favourite modern archetype. In this deck you have a lot of control type spells, so I can recommend one of two things.
The first is two build it in a more tempo/agressive fashion by dropping some permission and removal (not all of it) for spells like Emerge Unscathed and Distortion Strike. The rebound real helps trigger Prowess, and Emerge Unscathed specifically is a huge tempo card because you can cast it on an opponents turn to protect a creature, and attack with pseudo unblockable the next turn. Also adding some more Prowess creatures like Stormchaser Mage and Abbot of Keral Keep can help out, especially with all the spells you cast. His ability is almost never a wiff, and he prevents mana flood. If you plan on this route, I would recommend the following:
- 1 Geist of Saint Traft
- 1 Spell Queller
- 2 Snapcaster Mage
- 2 Failure / Comply
- 2 Remand
- 1 Path to Exile
- 1 Mana Leak
- 2 Abbot of Keral Keep
- 2 Stormchaser Mage
- 2 Emerge Unscathed
- 2 Distortion Strike
- 1 Spell Snare
- 1 Spell Pierce
The other direction you could take this deck is a Jeskai Control deck. I don't have much expertise in the area, but my recommendation would be taking out a lot of the aggressive creatures, adding in Thing in the Ice Flip and a lot more land, as you will want to be going a bit further late game.
If you want, feel free to check out my Jeskai Prowes list:
My apologies for the long ramble, I really love the deck, and you have a +1 from me!

As a replacement for Training Grounds I would say maybe Distortion Strike, Veil of Secrecy, or Ghostform. I was looking at Stormrider Rig and I realized that Sai of the Shinobi is strictly better while still being very cheap. I also think it is worth putting in 2 Rogue's Passage.

Why are you only running 2 Glistener Elf? Why 4 Blight Mamba? Why 2 Thrummingbird and Viridian Betrayers at all? Ichorclaw Myr is under a dollar, and its way better than the Bird or betrayers. Also, look at Necropede.
Drop Steady Progress all together dude. 3 mana for a poison counter and a single draw? And thats only if you have poison on your opponent.
Lower the overall mana curve. Too many 2 drops. Infect is about being blazingly fast, not a midgame deck with no tools to fight at all.
1-2 Apostle's Blessing in SB would do you well, too.
These are all budget options.

hardhitta71194 will do! Thanks for the upvote and all hail the Firemind!
xyr0s I'll keep Distortion Strike in mind, I do see the advantage for both cards. Considering it's a relatively cheap card, I'll see if I can get a playset for testing. Gut Shot is very nice being a 0-drop, it'd be great for another deck idea I have involving Thermo-Alchemist, so I'll keep it in consideration. Do you think the Mana Leaks could be replaced? I was thinking of Dispel and Titan's Strength as a possibility, or 2x Spell Pierce. Desolate Lighthouse looks great for filtering cards! I'll add it in.
As for Thought Scour, it thins the deck by 3 cards and fuels the graveyard for Bedlam Reveler. It's a tad RnG, but there's a metric ton of instants and sorceries in the deck so your chances of hitting a creature are low. At worst it's a cantrip, which is still nice for triggering Prowess. Thanks for the suggestions and input!
