Yikes, that's a really rough field to play Tron in. Goblins, in particular, will be very tough to beat. And you can bet your 7-mana @#$ that the Jund player will be as prepared as you expect.

The real advantage of red is access to Firespout, or Anger of the Gods if you think you can manage the colors, although that might be tricky. Pyroclasm is also something to keep in mind. The general meta has so much aggro right now that sweepers seem much more effective than Banefire to live until Tron is online. Firespout isn't good in the tron mirror, but it's still something that you should consider.

In budget tron I would absolutely be playing 4 Relic of Progenitus. And maybe even some mainboard Thragtusk - casting them shouldn't be too hard and they're especially great vs Goblins and Jund.

Wooded Foothills and Stomping Ground are a lot of pain. And you can rely on facing Field of Ruin often enough to warrant at least 3 basic lands, if not more. Karplusan Forest is a decent way to get your colors, although Grove of the Burnwillows is definitely the best.

As for beating the tron mirror... I admittedly have few ideas. I'm a grixis player. I don't know how to beat tron. I don't know what it feels like. I probably boast a 5% lifetime winrate vs Tron, if not lower. I can literally only think of one match that I've won, and only a few times that I've taken them to game 3.

I think you'll have a veeeeery hard time with humans. I'd consider some sweepers for this reason; yes, they're a nonbo with Pyro, but it's better than losing. I feel Sweltering Suns is grossly underplayed in modern, but most would choose Anger of the Gods; both are good, having some of each may be preferable to get around Meddling Mage. There's also Pyroclasm, Firespout, Kozilek's Return.

I like the deck overall, my man! I think 2-3 manlands could be beneficial, as well -- doubly so if you're adding sweepers.

While the cycling of Sweltering Suns can definitely be useful this deck already draws a ton of cards with Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star. Firespout is in this deck to deal with aggro decks which means you want to be able to cast it when you draw it, which is the downside of the double red in the Sweltering Suns mana cost.

+1! Love the decklist!

I think Sweltering Suns would be a great inclusion in the list! I'd imagine it is better than Firespout in many games, as the cycling is such a useful ability! It may be hard to fix for, but still, if you can't cast it, it can still be used.

GCNDAN3702 on Modern - Tamanoa Combo (?)

Oops, I totally missed that! You're right, it wouldn't make much sense to run mark and also reckoner and spitemare alongside it.

Thinking about it some more though, I think Rite of Passage with all of the aforementioned creatures could be fun, but might be too slow if you are trying to make this competitive. I think if you're looking to make this tuned then it would be best to focus more on damage/board sweepers and pain cards that affects both players, and utilize Tamanoa and other life gain cards like Sun Droplet to keep you afloat while your opponent struggles. The pridemates could still be good in the deck as long as you have enough life gain triggers to make them big enough to avoid taking lethal from your sweepers. Some sweepers I would consider are Flamebreak, Earthquake, Firespout, and Volcanic Fallout. You could also maybe have some specific player hate cards in the sideboard that put more damage pressure on the opponent with cards like Psychogenic Probe, Burning Earth, and Burning-Tree Shaman. Eidolon of the Great Revel is also a fantastic card, but I don't know how hard it would be to play around with all of your sweepers since it only has 2 toughness.

I would add a few basic lands to the deck to protect against various types of land destruction mostly forests for Blood Moon and Ghost Quarter effects. Maybe add in some removal such as Pyroclasm or Oblivion Stone or Firespout although if your meta isn't super creature heavy, then you could make do with just a few copies of Lightning Bolt

You considered Firespout or Rough as replacements for Pyroclasm as they don't hit your flyers?
