Grim Lavamancer Discussion

I'm not the biggest fan of Force Spike since it loses most of its effectiveness after turn 3 or 4. I at least have Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Lightning Bolt, Stifle, Blustersquall, Vapor Snag, Spite of Mogis, Grim Lavamancer, and Brittle Effigy to interact with creatures. Opt was a later cut just because I needed more cards with a real impact. Some cards I was considering were Meekstone and Grafdigger's Cage due to how well they can hate out opponents, but I'm not sure what to cut.

Grim Lavamancer possible in sideboard? You throw piles of cards in the GY anyway, and against some opponents, you need to remove bunches of small creatures.

Yes, Abbot of Keral Keep is occupying the one flexible slot in the deck. I would also strongly consider Grim Lavamancer for that slot or the possibility of throwing in a couple Kolaghan's Commands, Exquisite Firecrafts, or something like that to fill the slot. Bringing back an Abbot of Keral Keep with Claim / Fame is a very effective way to close out close games and push those last few point's of damage through though.

Fiery Temper is definitely too cute. You will end up forcing yourself to make sub-optimal plays, just to get the madness in. Better to just have bolt... too simple and effective to pass up.
I play a similar deck and i prefer Bedlam Reveler to the angler, because you have no Stubborn Denial to defend it, so very often it just dies anyways, so might as well draw 3. With all the self discard spells i think you could afford to try it out. (maybe i am just saying this so i can have more people playtesting my deck lol).
Also is having Pyroclasm and Pia and Kiran Nalaar at the same time good? I feel like it is too much of an anti-synergy(although maybe you see off the beaten path decks a lot in your meta, where pyroclasm is necessary). I like the idea of having Grim Lavamancer main deck in the spot of pyroclasm, since you're loading up your graveyard with looting and cheap discard spells, and you might want to be gaining value late game (since faithless looting is card disadvantage).
I am not personally a fan of the Demigod of Revenge plan... there is no Buried Alive in the format to make it consistent. The best cheap equivalent card i would go for is Goblin Dark-Dwellers, since you have plenty of powerful instants and sorceries to go for.

I think you can safely go up to 4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or at least include 2 more in your sideboard. It is excellent against control, which is your bad matchup. I feel like Boros Charm is more important as a 1-of as opposed to Blessed Alliance. It protects against boardwipes and has more offensive options, which is what you need in this deck. Grim Lavamancer is also a good 1-drop that is viable in mid-to-late game. As for lands, I'm nitpicking but I think 1 Mountain is enough, and obviously the fetches should be on-color (Arid Mesa) if you can manage it.

You don't need anything other than Pyroclasm/Anger of the Gods/Pyrohemia and creatures with enrage. You can ramp with Search for Tomorrow and Sakura-Tribe Elder (that way, you don't kill your own mana dorks).
The list I've been messing around with so far is:
I'm hoping we get a wider variety of enrage creatures later in the block, because right now I feel as though this list is weaker than playing Dragons (Thundermaw Hellkite and Stormbreath Dragon, specifically) or Tooth and Nail.
