To be honest you have what appears to be a lot of random cards in the deck that don't have much synergy or focus. You might want to try and figure out what you want your deck to do and cut the cards from your deck that don't fit it and find more that support that idea.
Example: Soul-Scar Mage is a solid 1 drop, but you have so few early burn cards to take advantage of his ability. You may want more copies of him in the deck because you lack 1 drop creature options, but I would highly advise adding cheaper mana cost burn spells like Harnessed Lightning or Magma Spray over Electrify (at the very least I suggest getting Flame Lash as it can be used to target players as well as creatures).
Another example: for cards like Fling and Heart-Piercer Manticore, you might want to consider cutting these from the deck as you run rather light on creatures overall to be sacrificing them for these effects. I am not saying you can't run these cards if you like how they function, but you might want to consider running more creatures and maybe change some of your spells into pump so after you swing in you can inflate the creature for more damage, then sacrifice it for potential game ending results. This would mean you would want to change how your deck is focused again, but just something to keep in mind.
Hope these suggestions help. Willing to help if you have any questions or need me to explain my comments better.

I like the idea of being really cheap and fast. However, with 16 land, you'll rarely ever play Chandra, Pyrogenius. But otherwise, I like it a lot. Possibly remove Liberating Combustion and Flame Lash because of the cost as well. Pyromancer's Assault is a good card for your deck, but you have no spells to draw cards so you may run out of gas quick and be top decking. I suggest putting in Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion and Cryptic Serpent. With these cards you'll be drawing a lot more and also be able to pump your Enigma Drake like crazy.

Are Flame Lash or Deem Worthy really worth it over Cut? I love some of the synergies in this deck though. I forgot Curious Homunculus Flip was a thing. Have you tried playing more than 1 Fevered Visions? Its really good, but its a card I'd either play 4 of or none. It combos with itself too well. I'd also consider Bedlam Reveler over Sin Prodder and possible remove the singleton Thing in the Ice Flip. Or move to 2, if that's a wincon your going for. Fatal Push is everywhere though, so Thing in the Ice Flip strats are risky. Finally, I'd swap out Unsubstantiate for Censor, but that's just me.

Soul-Scar Mage gives non-combat damage wither* (not infect)

I think the best answer you can muster is probably the Release the Gremlins already in your side board. I'm not sure if 2x or 3x is correct here. This is one of the reasons I switched from Grixis to Temur so I could use Natural Obsolescence also. Either way though, Mardu Vehicles is definitely the tough matchup.
Another decent option to consider is Incendiary Flow instead of Flame Lash to deal with Scrapheap Scrounger because as it exiles the creature, it can't come back from the graveyard. For the same reason I tried running 2x Void Shatter in the main instead of a couple of the Disallow for additional help with Scrapheap Scrounger. I like 2x Negate, 3x Disallow and 2x Void Shatter for my counter magic.
You can definitely have games with this deck though where you have all the answers.
