Darth_Savage, thanks for the suggestions!

I don't see how I can run Lingering Souls very effectively, unfortunately. Dragon Fodder is worth considering, for sure, especially if I'm going to capitalize on sacrifice payout. Smallpox fits more of a dedicated control or 8-rack, I think. I don't really want to be sacking lands when I'm trying to ramp into MoC. I think in place of Scorched Rusalka, I'll use Captain's Claws for that last point of damage, and add in Gut Shot. Rusalka looks powerful but I fear I won't have a whole lot of creatures at any given time. I like Infernal Plunge and will add it if I add Dragon Fodder. Another ramp idea that came to me was Generator Servant.

For the unblockability, I like Glaring Spotlight and Whispersilk Cloak the most. Thanks for those suggestions.

Lastly, my kill spell of choice within my play group is Go for the Throat but this is easily changed to fit your own group's style. Personally I don't run into Artifact Creatures nearly often enough for it to disappoint me.

i can see Crop Rotation being very stong in this deck, you could even experiment with some jank lands with crop rotation and the sac theme Bojuka Bog for sb GY hate, Desert or even Sejiri Steppe might work. also the sb needs alot of work, the delver match up is pretty weak so id reccomend 3-4 Scattershot Archer or Gut Shot and also Dwarven Scorcher is pretty bad

Cool deck! Looks like I wasn't the only one who had this idea.

If you're going to try to use Phyrexian cards with Lavarunner, you might want to run a 4-of Gut Shot or Mutagenic Growth to increase your chances of t1 lavarunner. Other than that, the list seems a bit outdated (Marauders and Flame Rift aren't used so much anymore, while most lists run Thermoalchemist and Firebrand Archer), but it looks solid overall.

A non-zero amount of Gut Shot would do some good against elves and inside out. Faerie macabre or tormods crypt serves for good graveyard hate against te or some control decks

No red deck is really complete without a full set of Lightning Bolts. You just don't get it better than 3 damage for 1 mana, to any target at almost any time (it is exactly as Lightning Strike, but at half cost).

Your creatures belong in two different decks: One that goes wide, with a lot creatures that you then buff (Memnite and Signal Pest) and one that burns opponent to death (Guttersnipe and Spark Elemental). Since these two plans actually are rather different, drawing a couple of cards from both means that you can't carry out either of them. If you want to go wide, you need more smaller creatures or tokens (Dragon Fodder and Mogg War Marshal are good cards for this strategy). Tyrant of Discord has no business at all being in a deck with only 20 lands, since you plan on the game being over long before turn 14, which is when you'd be most likely to play it.

I've never really liked Guttersnipe, since it's a 3 mana creatures, that doesn't do anything on its own... and it belongs in a fast deck. That is, a fast deck where you don't mind spending your 3rd turn just playing a rather small creature, and not doing anything else. Of course you could wait until you have some more mana, so you could play some spells in the same turn... but what are you then doing until then? My guess is, that you'd then just end up playing the very same spells that you'd otherwise want to use for triggering Guttersnipe, and when you finally play it, you are more or less empty-handed. But if it has to be, you should play "free" spells, like Mutagenic Growth and Gut Shot... and since you'd then be playing free spells anyway, you might as well pick up the best prowess creature for fast deck - Monastery Swiftspear - and maybe you could get some real value out of Abbot of Keral Keep, since it both has prowess and gives you a card.

Anyway, you should probably make up your mind in regards to creatures, and stick to one plan.

Shrine of Burning Rage also likes free spells, but only as long as they are red... I'm not too happy having 4 of it in a deck. If there's one on the opening hand, it's fine, but drawing it later is a really under-powered draw. Perhaps it's better in decks, that can get rid of it - like if you played a looter (you know - "draw a card-discard a card") of some kind.

Aether Vial allows a turn 3 kill with Gut Shot or Slaughter Pact. Thoughtscour is your go-to cantrip as it can spark the combo as well. Ghost Quarter is another great way to start it up. Spellskite, Academy Ruins and Muddle the Mixture are also cards to consider. Definitely get more thoughtseize.

Gut Shot, Stomping Ground, and Wooded Foothills. The last two are because they are red and green. You are running red and back so technically you just added two red mana. You could replace those two with Rakdos Carnarium, and Rakdos Signet. Those two things are not needed but if mana becomes a problem then try to add them two. But that would be my removal list.
