IlGuale on Removal to make CREATURES!!

I really like your deck, keep up the good work! My suggestion is to move mainboard Rest in Peace, maybe replacing some graveyard hate, because graveyard hate can stop Snapcaster Mage, Tarmogoyf, Grim Lavamancer, Dredge, Delirium and Delve strategy, while Stony Silence is rarely as useful if you are not against affinity.

Leyline of Sanctity is also a card which probably deserves more than one slot, because it saves you against Burn and protects your hand from black discard. If budget is a problem, Ivory Mask or Aegis of the Gods are suitable replacements. Against Burn, Nyx-Fleece Ram is another great card, giving you life and blocking every creature they have.

Eidolon of Rhetoric is a good sideboard card against Storm and is both a creature and an enchantment.

Then Dovescape is a card in your colours that can protect your permanents and become an alternative win-con if you counter your not-needed enchantment. But is more of a fun card than a necessity.

Ha! Well, I'd also include your 8-10 fetchlands, so playsets of Wooded Foothills and Bloodstained Mire, with 2x Arid Mesa. Or at the very least, 8x fetches. The reason why we do this, even in a mono deck, is that we sometimes want to trigger landfall with Searing Blaze on our opponent's turn. The fuel for Grim Lavamancer is also very nice. The shuffle and minimal deckthinning is a thing, but it is minimal.

You play too many Grim Lavamancers. They're supposed to be late game gas (so, you don't want to see them in your opening hand or in your first few draws), so you're better off playing just two. With the remaining two slots, you could play something like Shard Volley.

And if you're gonna take this to tournaments, consider splashing white or green for better sideboard options. Mono-red burn can't do a thing about cards like Worship and Leyline of Sanctity, so you absolutely NEED to pack enchantment hate in your SB - and green (Destructive Revelry) and white (Disenchant, Wear) are your go-to colors when it comes to enchantment hate.

Smallpox would never work with only 19 lands, I think. Maybe you can play a few more discard or Dark Confidant and Grim Lavamancer in its place? Death's Shadow seems good in this deck too.

CommanderNeyo will consider it. I have tried to decide if I should replace Grim Lavamancer with Monastery Swiftspear but idk.

Glorybringer looks real nice, but I'd still choose stormbreath dragon. Stormbreath has protection from white, meaning it evades push, bolt (although multiples can kill), path, and decay.

monstrous usually isn't a problem, and the triggered ability after becoming monstrous punishes decks for having too many cards or holding up answers.

Grim Lavamancer is really good in burn, and would probably work well for this deck, but unlike burn, i dont have a consistent stream of spells hitting the graveyard.

I'll try out that Glorybringer tho, thanks!

Would Grim Lavamancer be of significant value with the amount of cards you can load into graveyard here? I wouldn't know where to fit it in, and at most it would be a two of, but you have sac outlets for it to be a shock generator. Also, what's your thoughts on Glorybringer as a swap out for Stormbreath Dragon? StormBreath has evasion and a significant buff built in with Monstrous, but is at face value less powerful initially and expensive to activate Mounstrous.

Just some thoughts, hope all is well!

Why Chancellor of the Dross? Soul Spike is horrible value, and Chancellor is too. You would be better off with Lava Spike, Grim Lavamancer, Fulminator Mage, Rift Bolt, Rakdos Charm, and Dreadbore mixed into the deck. At 18 lands I just don't see chancellor and soul spike giving you much to do without the pair being handy. I may be missing something though.
