guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.

some shock replacements include:

Wild Slash

Flame Slash

Searing Blaze

Skullcrack

Shard Volley

Deflecting Palm

Collateral Damage

Gut Shot

Molten Rain

Chained to the Rocks

guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks

Young Pyromancer

Firebrand Archer

Kiln Fiend

Goblin Arsonist / Goblin Grenade

Mogg Fanatic

Keldon Marauders

Seeker of the Way

Soul-Scar Mage

Abbot of Keral Keep

sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like

Fragmentize

Wear / Tear

Smash to Smithereens

or even just the very basics in Smelt and Demystify

Dawn Charm is versatile for RDW and Burn and can even regenerate your Obstinate Baloth when it gets Flame Slash ed.... Leyline of Sanctity in the SB?

Definitely would cut Flame Slash for either Burst Lightning or Forked Bolt . Slash is dead in too many modern matchups, imo.

-1 Dispel

+1 Condescend

I value the Scry 2, and counter all ability over the limitation to just instants, as I don't know what the meta will be like yet.

-3 Evolving Wilds

+2 Ash Barrens

+1 Terramorphic Expanse

Ash Barrens interacts better with Foil as it allows me to fetch an island to my hand.

-2 Vapor Snag

+2 Echoing Truth

As I'm not sure what my meta will be like, Echoing Truth can act as catch all solution.

-1 Flame Slash

+1 Thermo-Alchemist

To increase my reach a bit.

Flame Slash would be nice somewhere in the 75, works well with Hypersonic

Whelming Wave is a cheap board wipe but was just a few cents too expensive to replace aetherize.

Vapor Snag and Shock are also cheap removal that might be able to replace some other card in the deck. Flame Slash is usually better as removal but can't be used as an instant-speed finisher.

Counterspells can be easily customized to hit creatures, instants or noncreatures within the budget. Choose what you want for your meta.

As for draw spells, Tormenting Voice is probably better than Whirlpool Rider against non-blue decks. Treasure Cruise is also within budget but needs an enabler. Anticipate is also cheap but I initially cut it in favour of the whirlpools based on the reasoning that they can draw you into anything if you have the combo set up (infinite mana means infinite displaces on archaeomancer+any other creature).

One final word on finishers, fireball has the same problem as grapeshot. They are sorceries. I would recommend switching it with Fall of the Titans or with Volcanic Geyser . Fireball is iconic but it sadly is not as good as other budget replacements.

Bloodfire Infusion , Flame Slash , possibly Lava Storm , Martyr of Ashes , Sandstorm , Hush , Multani's Decree and possibly Swirling Sandstorm could act as hate against your mainly voltron opponents. Don't overload your deck with these though.

Unfortunatly, most of this also hurts you.

I would cut two lands for Kodama's Reach and Cultivate .

Darksteel Pendant can help you find what your looking for.

Does the soulblade player use Viridian Longbow ?

How fast is Vizkopa Guildmage ?

If Longbow becomes a problem, I would recomend somthing versatile like Crushing Canopy .

Monarch cards could be good, but Valduk is pretty punishing on monarch cards.

Ulamog's Crusher is the biggest beater in PDH, so he could find his way in here if you wanted.

How fast is Valduk?

Would some more combat tricks (First strike) get a Vine Mare mid combat?

What flying creature is the Stinging Shot mainly in there for?

Sorry for the unorganized thoughts, hope this helps! :)

Flame Slash > Bombard & Lightning Strike > Burn the Impure .

Maybe more creatures that get bonuses from equipment? Kitesail Apprentice , Kor Duelist , Auriok Glaivemaster , etc.

Check out $5 Kor Equipment for some other ideas.
