When you can play 5+ copies of each card, there's about a million different ways to win on turn one. For example:

Simian Spirit Guide -> Simian Spirit Guide -> Surging Flame -> flip over 40 other Surging Flame s.

Simian Spirit Guide -> Rite of Flame -> Rite of Flame -> Manamorphose -> rinse and repeat for near-infinite mana, cards, and storm count.

Dark Ritual -> Dark Ritual -> Entomb -> Animate Dead -> Griselbrand -> repeat Dark Ritual -> Entomb -> Animate Dead until you get whatever amount of whatever creature(s) you want.

Grim Monolith s and/or Mana Vault s to power out an early Emrakul, the Aeons Torn .

Even if you make the format Standard-only, you'd still have people doing bullshit like making a deck with nothing but Viashino Pyromancer s, Ghitu Lavarunner s, Wizard's Lightning s, and Mountain s for guaranteed turn 3 or 4 kills. There's a reason there's a limit of 4 copies. Without it, you end up with either a format that's decided by the coin flip or a banlist longer than the dictionary.

Wardino, I believe I had both Ghitu Lavarunner and Stealth Mission as preliminary card when I started building it. With the Lavarunner I kept running into the issue of losing the haste and +1/+0 bonus if I didn't have Adeliz out to compensate for it. Otherwise it have worked fine.

I have done a little bit of testing on Arena with the additions of Wee Dragonauts and Stealth Mission and so far it looks like it maybe the way to go to help with its inconsistency.

I think Wee Dragonauts was made for this kind of deck. Perhaps Ghitu Lavarunner and Rile could help, and Stealth Mission could be entertaining as it could boost Dreadhorde Arcanist among other things, which could bring Stealth Mission back and such. Overall, This deck looks pretty fun, good picks!!

Posted the deck 10 minutes ago, already thinking Dauntless Bodyguard is slow. Maybe replace for Ghitu Lavarunner ? Not the biggest fan of Adanto Vanguard either.

The costs are a bit too high for a burn deck, consider adding Skewer the Critics , Light Up the Stage , Ghitu Lavarunner , Footlight Fiend .

I feel like you are relying too much on your opponent with Cindervines and Immolation Shaman . Instead add some burn like Lightning Strike or a synergising creature like Ghitu Lavarunner

Seems like a pretty reasonable budget Feather list! +1 from me.

If you're open to suggestions, Electrostatic Field seems good here. It's got a slightly less powerful Guttersnipe effect for only 2cmc, but it's always going to survive Fell the Mighty and/or Solar Blaze effects.

I also like Monastery Swiftspear and Ghitu Lavarunner for the list. Swiftspear seems like she could go wild with early game prowess, and Lavarunner just fits red spellslinger to a tee.

I like the idea, I would just recommand you add some more cheap instant/sorcery and remove 4 creatures. 4 Adeliz might be too much, it's a legendary so you won't be able to play more than one at the time.

The way I see it : -1 Adeliz, the Cinder Wind -2 Siren Stormtamer -1 Ghitu Lavarunner +3 Spell Pierce +1 Wizard's Lightning

Not sure about Spell Pierce but any decent one-drop could do the job. In my opinion you need at least 25/26 instant/sorcery to make it work.
