mande on Firesong and Sunspeaker

I would cut a lot of cards here, try to streamline the boros spellslinger build. Tajic, Victory's Herald, Serra Ascendant. I'd cut Boros Keyrune and Manalith for more efficient rocks (Probably Hedron Archive and Boros Cluestone, since boros is atrocious in card draw. Also run Red copy effects, such as Increasing Vengeance. I would also include Jaya Ballard, Fire Servant, Warleader's Helix, to name a few.

@Suns_Champion: Since you don't agree that a cEDH competitive Boros Deck is possible, I just want your thoughts on this in general, & how much more competitive it would take to trump your Firesong & Sunspeaker deck as well. What other X-Burns do you recommend, as well as other stuff that might be of use alongside fixed burn spells? Also, you think Fire Servant might work here? I'm trying to get as close to CMC2 as possible as a standard for cEDH...

Garmads I wouldn't take out Aggravated Assault because it's way too fun for that. Kaboom! is definitely a must have because it's so much fun and it adds the randomness that red can give you. Dualcaster Mage, Fire Servant, Tunneling Geopede, Sunbird's Invocation, Stolen Strategy, Thieves' Auction and Bonus Round are also really fun.

for a more budget and casual version. maybe take a look at my deck: Neheb, The Fireflinger (MRB-Ramp)

The rest of the cards I have in my burn deck that differ from your list revolved around me emptying my hand to allow ensnaring bridge to protect me. They may or may not meet your criteria (and most probably don't as they just double the initial lightning bolt but some are direct damage) but thought I'd list them anyway:

Cursed Scroll, Isochron Scepter, Firestorm, Fire Servant, Hazoret the Fervent, Masticore, Dual Casting, Harness the Storm, Pyromancer Ascension, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Increasing Vengeance, Searing Blood, Skullcrack, Thunderous Wrath, Harsh Mentor

The curve feels too high, and some of your card choices are fairly low-impact. Cunning Sparkmage and Vulshok Sorcerer are best in combo lists ( Banishing Knack/Intruder Alarm/Cowardice/Fractured Loyalty/Power of Fire ) where they are a win condition rather than anything playing more linear, because 1 damage/turn for three mana is weak on its own.

They can work in more casual Deep-Slumber Titan lists. With Goblin Fireslinger existing though, (used for the bloodthirst mechanic) they almost never see play. Gorgon's head synergy just isn't reliable enough to see play outside Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile commander, and is best non-budget for Basilisk Collar.

Looking for that kind of synergy is exactly the right mindset for effective budget deckbuilding, you just need to get used to all the options so you can find the good stuff.

Its best to go hard on exactly what you want to do with a deck, especially as a budget list. Expensive cards are usually the most versatile cards (or cards with no alternatives). So to play budget effectively, you need a strategy that keeps cropping up in MTG and go all-in. A direct damage burst with Quest is a good choice, and so is the incredible efficiency of Shrapnel Blast, so lets build around those. You want to spend a single turn taking somone from 14-15 to 0 with artifacts on the field.

Go to gatherer, advanced search. Search for red enchantments that might sit alongside quest to help hit that 'eight copy reliable' stage. Anything that catches your eye, add it to the maybeboard, so you can see how much each card costs. We can also do a search for 'double damage' and 'whenever a source damage' to pick up other likely options.

Don't grab cards costing 6 or more mana, because unless you build your entire deck to cast them, you'll never cast them. Assault Strobe, Temur Battle Rage, Dictate of the Twin Gods ( Fire Servant ), ( Curse of Bloodletting )Insult,Overblaze, The Flame of Keld all stand out to me.

But with them all sitting in or around the 5 mana slot, or being creatures pump spells, suddenly we have some deckbuilding restrictions. We need either a bunch of damage on the field which we abruptly double and win, or to spend five mana getting one to the battlefield then cast a bunch of spells.

So lets look at the tools mono-red has to do that. For the former, there are agressive creatures like Keldon Marauders, Mogg Fanatic, Mortarpod, , Seal of Fire Zektar Shrine Expedition, Emberwilde Augur etc, for the latter Fling Spark Elemental etc.

Getting a big list of all the options then picking the best, looking at both price and effect is a good habit to get into with deckbuilding- Learning to trim the fat and spot strong options helps immensely with draft formats, and can help massively streamline your lists. If you are having trouble finding options, look into the archived standard deckbuilding discussions for an archetype that might have useful tools, and steal those.

Just remember, redundant copies of any spell makes it good, and casting spells on turns 1-2-3 is very good.
