Electrostatic Bolt for small creatures and affinity. Jaya's Greeting for Lightning Bolt + scry. Magma Jet because scrying is good. Firebolt we love to flashback.

Firewild Borderpost & Veinfire Borderpost because of Raze and it triggers Archer.

Electrostatic Bolt seems kind of bad, there's better removal cards that could take its place. On the other hand, there's a few more cheap LD effects you could consider.

Each of the following are symmetrical, but given that your deck's entire purpose revolves around LD, you should be able to maximize your mana advantage. Crack the Earth, Raze, and Tremble all offer cheap but powerful resource denial effects.

Replace the Electrostatic Bolt and Scorching Lava s with Lightning Bolts.

Replace the Prohibit s and Dispel with something like Mana Leak or Negate.

Replace the Ghostly Flicker with an Ulamog's Crusher, as I see Ulamog's Crusher being good in your deck, and Ghostly Flicker doesn't do that much in your deck.

Also, in a Mystical Teachings deck Havenwood Wurm seems insane.

Add 2 more Expedition Maps, they are very important!

I love the idea, by the way.

Here are some suggestions off the top of my head. You are at 63 cards. And I'm fairly sure we've had the 60 card discussion before. :D

Consider the following changes:
-1 Bomber Corps
-1 Lightning Strike
-1 Thunderous Wrath
That drops you to 60 without any major changes to the the deck.

Here are some other cards I want you to consider:
Crash Through and Faithless Looting for card draw.
You are going to need a sideboard for more competitive environments. And the sideboard also works for testing maybe cards. Take a look at Legion Loyalist, Stonewright, Tormod's Crypt, Electrostatic Bolt, Smelt, Shattering Spree, Shattering Blow, Monastery Swiftspear, Skullcrack, Collateral Damage, Barrage of Expendables, Pyrite Spellbomb and Searing Blood as either main or sideboard cards.

Sideboard suggestion:
3 Tormod's Crypt
3 Smelt
2 Searing Blood
2 Slagstorm
2 Shattering Blow
3 ???, not sure on this one.

Let me know what you think.

Red Decks FTW!I think that Kiln Fiend would be perfect there.I feel like Magma Spray would be useful here as well.Smash to Smithereens or Abrade would be a good replacement for Electrostatic Bolt.You might also think about Browbeat which would provide you really nice draw.
