Ok, I'm confused. What purpose does shuffling the deck with madblind mountain serve. There isn't any way to manipulate the top of the deck to ensure any better draws than what you would normally get. I'm guessing this is for random times like an opponent casting Plow Under on you or something. Maybe if there was an Experimental Frenzy in play then shuffling could have some use, but otherwise I don't see any upside to it.

More Embercleaves. Otherwise, this deck seems solid fir what you're going for, have you considered Light Up the Stage, Experimental Frenzy, or Runaway Steam-Kin?

Red's version of card advantage is Light Up the Stage-type cards.

As far as other value cards... Chaos Warp, Experimental Frenzy, Risk Factor, and Browbeat.

Mana Geyser can go infinite with reiterate: If you can cast Reiterate with buyback in response to a Mana Geyser that will produce 7 or more mana, you can cast infinite Reiterates to get infinite storm and infinite mana.

Another infinite could be Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts.

Dualcaster Mage and Twinflame/Heat Shimmer go infinite

Lastly, Experimental Frenzy, Sensei's Divining Top and Ugin, the Ineffable let you draw your whole deck

Where is your card draw? All I see are 3 wheels and outpost siege. Anvil, burning inquiry don't count IMO because they don't net you cards. I really like this chaos build. I had something similar (although not as compact/good) about a year or so back, but my playgroup hates chaos so they targeted me. So I made mine a semi-competitive build. If you added more card draw in the form of....(there are other ideas, just lmk if ur interested in them)

Endless Atlas - Card draw

Tome of Legends - I have a "good" feeling about this ;)

Ignite the Future - Better in more serious builds, but is still nice

Light Up the Stage - Similar to above, this card is probably better suited to your deck, although I run both since I'm card draw hungry in mono red

No Strip Mine instead of field? Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle instead of a mountain?

Would love to hear your thoughts on my semi-competitive build

Experimental Frenzy is a fun card that lets you not rely on having cards in hand to cast spells.

Nice deck!

Conspicuous Snoop in M21 looks like it would be a beast in this deck. Definitely must add. Might be a better Experimental Frenzy

You truly are wise!! :D

I think Light Up the Stage should be put in instead of tower that draws you cards. Reason is because tower costs a lot to play and a lot to activate. Its a HUGE tempo loss in a deck that can't really afford it. Light up the stage can be easily paid for and isn't even if bad if paid in full cost. It has helped me win several games.

I take it you're willing to risk the small potential for anti-synergy of ugin and immortal given how much potential Ugin has. Another potential idea could be as follows...

Ugin Ineffable + Sensei's Divining Top + Experimental Frenzy can help you draw your entire deck. Top is just amazing on it's own and frenzy can help with card draw. I personally took this combo out of my deck because there is little/no way to assemble it in mono red outside from gamble, but I thought it was something to consider given you adding ugin and a potential back up combo.

Volcanic offering is more of a pet card than a 100% serious recomendation. It's goodstuff, nice to have, but not necessary at all.

Warstorm Surge NEEDS to be in this deck, above flametongue even. 2 damage minimum every turn, not to mention adding a gauntlet or immortal to deal more damage. Works well with token enablers.

Inventors' Fair - Tutor, lifegain, very helpful.

And if my new Standard combos ever launch, I suspect we'll see a Drannith Magistrate or Experimental Frenzy ban.
