Take out: Gut Shot, Mutagenic Growth, Mystical Tutor, Merchant Scroll, Enigma Drake, Spellheart Chimera, Vivid Crag.
Add: Delver of Secrets  Flip, Remand, Electrolyze, Grim Lavamancer, and maybe Condescend and Shard Volley or Rift Bolt or Searing Blaze which ever one you prefer. If you got the money Goblin Guide, Cryptic Command, and more Snapcaster Mage's. Sideboard could use some of these Spell Snare, Breaking Point, Flames of the Blood Hand, Sudden Shock and maybe Vendilion Clique and/or a Bribery to steal Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Progenitus from an opponents deck. Guile Is a cool card as well.

I would say it's a good idea, but there are too many creatures and not enough instant/sorceries. I'd take out Dragon-Style Twins, Jeskai Elder, Blistercoil Weird and Skaab Ruinator, and add Kiln Fiend, Mutagenic Growth, Gut Shot and Temur Battle Rage.

I'm not sure if you are aware, but:

Gut Shot has no upside as opposed to a normal lightning bolt after you've cast Worldfire due to your one life.

If you want an alternate win-condition, assuming you suspend it with Jhoira of the Ghitu, Near-Death Experience is significantly better than Barren Glory since you won't have to time it perfectly.

As far a Firebolt, it is 1. not legal in modern, and 2. no better than a Lightning Bolt, since will be exiled when you cast Worldfire, and it costs 5 mana to flash back anyway, either requiring 14 mana or drawing 5 lands after worldfire.

I would not recommend playing Counterlash because sorcery is probably the least potent card type in modern, and a 6 mana counter is very bad.

Overall, seems interesting with some more work.

I have found Gut Shot useful in taking out creatures like Snapcaster Mage but i do agree with you, after playing some rounds, that I do need some card draw/cantrips. Plus, I tried out Distortion Strike in my pauper deck and i didn't really thought they fit, but now that the deck is more aggressive I will certainly given Distortion Strike a try.

Gut Shot is really only useful when you are tapped out. Personally I would rather have Serum Visions or Opt, since you haven't got any of those either.

Lastly, how about Distortion Strike over Artful Dodge?

Here's a few more suggestions. some pricier than others!

Upgrades for Shock: Galvanic Blast, Wild Slash

Enchantments: Bloodchief Ascension, Quest for Pure Flame,

Others: Death Spark, Fall of the Titans, Gut Shot, Firestorm, Pyrite Spellbomb (can also card draw), Spark Jolt, Spark Spray, Tarfire (probably not worth it), and Unstable Footing

The new card Opt would be good here when its printed

Also Gut Shot andStormchaser Mage

Grapeshot is an alternate direct damage wincon that doubles as divided removal, AND its budget friendly! Id totally run a playset

Not bad power level for a first modern deck!

The funny thing is, I took out Vampire Lacerator for Pulse Tracker a while ago. My sole reason for that was I'm still able to deal 2 damage at best without the loss of life drawback.

Falkenrath Gorger would actually be pretty good in here. I just need to find a few copies. same with Fatal Push.

Still iffy on Lightning Bolt. I thought about putting it in, but I'm also a fan of Gut Shot and Grapeshot.
