Battalion — Whenever Firefist Striker and at least two other creature attack, target creature can't block this turn.
Searing Blood and Satyr Firedancer make a really good combo. Also i think Mizzium Mortars should find a place in here. Chandra, Pyromaster is really good, and Awaken the Ancient is nice for devotion. Stormbreath Dragon , and Legion Loyalist should be here also.
So IMO drop the Shock s, Firefist Striker , and Burning-Tree Emissary s.... Add 3xSatyr Firedancer , 3xSearing Blood ,2x Mizzium Mortars 2xStormbreath Dragon , 1xChandra, Pyromaster . If you want to try dropping the Rakdos Cackler for Legion Loyalist thats possible, they are both really good so just go with your gut on that one.
Warmind Infantry , Bomber Corps , and Wojek Halberdiers seem like the first to go. Trim Tajic back one. That should leave you with 12 battalion non hasters to 11 hasters. If you want, subbing in the Legion Loyalist for the boros elites would be good. Using the six free spaces, you could go full playset of Mugging and cttr. With one free space you could put in a final legion loyalist or put another burn spell in. Creature removal is never a bad thing. Or if you need that final two points of damage to do your opponent in. remove titan's strength and replace it for Magma Jet for removal and scry. Maybe even try dropping the Firemane Avenger to the sideboard and adding another Firefist Striker . Your CMC will be lower as a deck average and the striker is just a general cock blocking bad ass
@Grimgrinner, I think Firefist Striker is not that necessary of a card in this deck considering he has alot of big creatures, so he can fit in the Fanatic of Xenagos if he takes out the Firefist Striker .
I'm using a Rakdos Aggro build atm and I'm looking to improve my matchup against White aggro and Selesnya midrange type decks. I've added Doom Blade and Firefist Striker into the sideboard. If you have any ideas on how to improve the deck or how to improve the matchup don't be afraid to drop suggestions.
I love making decks with a limited pool of cards, challenge accepted! Here's what I came up with:
2x Shock 1x Giant Growth 1x Pit Fight 1x Coordinated Assault 1x Annihilating Fire 1x Flames of the Firebrand 1x Mugging 1x Hunt the Weak 1x Chandra's Outrage 1x Madcap Skills 1x Gruul War Chant 1x Trollhide
1x Aerial Predation 1x Druid's Deliverance 1x Fade into Antiquity 1x Towering Thunderfist 1x Viashino Racketeer 1x Brindle Boar 1x Traveler's Amulet 1x Sliver Construct 1x Dimir Keyrune 1x Howl of the Night Pack 1x Act of Treason 1x Axebane Stag 1x Slime Molding 2x Scab-Clan Charger
I split the creatures into three strategic groups, the first is beast and advocate of the beast to pump them up, the second is cheap creatures and rubblebelt raider to get a boost off of them, the last is just your mana ramp creatures and big creatures. I built a sideboard too, but not everything in there is useful, its some utility, some pumps, more creatures and more ramp. Anyway have fun playing magic and hope this helps.

Maybe toss 4 Peak Eruption in the sideboard. Maybe consider Madcap Skills or Titan's Strength . Maybe drop 2 mortars and put 2 of the above in your deck. Then move two skullcracks to sideboard, put in another titans strength or madcap skills. 4 is kind of excessive.
