Try to look up the Izzet Blitz list. You definitely need more card draw just in case your first barrage doesn't kill.

Cut: Soul's Fire , Shock , Arc Runner , Perilous Myr , Mark of Mutiny , Seething Song , Reckless Abandon , Sure Strike , 2x Fireblast , 2x Ghitu Lavarunner and Thermo-Alchemist

Run: 4x Lightning Bolt , 3x Temur Battle Rage , 3x Nivix Cyclops , 3x Kiln Fiend , 3x Gush , 2x Ponder , 2x Fling , 2x Opt , 2x Gitaxian Probe , 2x Mutagenic Growth

Consider also running some dual lands such as Swiftwater Cliffs . Cycle lands are a good idea but Lonely Sandbar is better than Desert of the Mindful .

Sideboard: 4x Apostle's Blessing , 3x Counterspell , 2x Dispel , 3x Electrickery , 3x Tormod's Crypt ,

Ghitu Lavarunner is there primarily to trigger Wizard's Lightning . But you got a point. Perhaps a side board option...?

Darth_Savage I'll keep the Sword-Point Diplomacy because I like the card idea. I'll do some changes like trade 4x Ghitu Lavarunner to 4x Monastery Swiftspear and 4x Wizard's Lightning to 4x Rift Bolt and 4x Lightning Strike to 4x Magma Jet I'll keep Viashino because I dont think Thunderous Wrath will fit in this deck. Hey bro I'm very grateful for the help :D

Poaralion Update for you regarding the pace of the deck. I took home the last two FNMs after making edits to the deck (this list is now current), and the last one I went 2-0 in each round up against Izzet drake/Niv, chromatic black, Jeskai Control, and Golgari midrange. I have not run out of firepower since making the edits, as Risk Factor and Sword-Point Diplomacy give me card advantage late to draw the last couple burn spells needed to win. It's extremely easy to end the game quick when turn one is Ghitu Lavarunner into turn two Wizard's Lightnings or Shocks, activating Ghitu Lavarunner and dealing 6-8 damage on turn two.

"ggwpezwin" means "Good game well played easy win", just a joke. If Experimental Frenzy is on the battlefield, you probably win the game.

Also, you don't have any wizard for Wizard's Lightning ! It's really bad then. You could add 4xGhitu Lavarunner and 4xViashino Pyromancer and go down -2xBanefire -2xRisk Factor and -4xDirect Current. Something like this ?

I would cut the Guttersnipes completely and put in Arclight Phoenix in that spot. Then go to 4 Risk Factor and 3 Flame of Keld to help get your birds in the yard faster, cutting both Ghitu Lavarunner and 1 Rile

Imho it's weaker than Shock or Ghitu Lavarunner or even the hasty one mana ping goblin in the onedrop slot and I don't want more onedrops. It's just not that good in this cascade event.

My normal Rakdos Burn list looks also differently than this pile here.
