Kiln Fiend Discussion
13 hours ago
If you have any, Pathmaker Initiate sync's well with Kiln Fiend as you can activate the ability before you begin buffing it. You may also want to consider Delver of Secrets Flip, it's a common that sees play in every format. As far as the sideboard goes pauper is a weird format and it's hard to know what to do when you don't have an idea of the meta. I can however give you ideas for ways to deal with popular decks, notably green stompy and Affinity. Ancient Grudge is probably pauper's best card to deal with affinity, and you also have access to Gorilla Shaman. Relic of Progenitus is a nice one of in pauper because of the format being somewhat unpredictable especially in casual metas. Electrickery is also pretty good against an elf focused green stompy deck. Other than that you want Negate and Dispel for control matchups and U/B mill. Hope this helps.
Also, so you know some of the cards above show up as uncommon but they were printed as commons in the past so they are legal.

Hate to break it to ya, but Seat of the Synod and Great Furnace are not modern legal. I play a Grixis list similar to this except I also run Ensoul Artifact and Tezzeret's Touch with it, which I think could improve the deck quite a bit, but I would personally recommend you get rid of the illegal artifact lands if you really want to keep this modern (Darksteel Citadel is still legal, however) and add 4 Spire of Industry and possibly 4 Scalding Tarn if you can afford them, otherwise just go with 4 Spirebluff Canal. Also your Titan's Strengths could be replaced with Serum Visions or Faithless Looting; red pump usually isn't amazing unless you're playing Kiln Fiend to power it up.

Kiln Fiend is a surprisingly powerful card if you're casting a lot of spells, +3 damage every instant/sorcery is no joke. Could sideboard this if you're playing against something slow.
Just some ideas, I'm sure there's some other cards out there but being mono red does limit some of your options

And Claim / Fame is great here. Even if Death's Shadow isn't in your graveyard, when you use it to target Kiln Fiend, it gets a total of +5/+0 because of the cast trigger on Fame. In the right situation, that card is going to be able to win games outright.

Since your Kiln Fiends have the potential to one-shot your opponent but die to Path to Exile/Lightning Bolt/Dismember etc, I'd recommend 4x Apostle's Blessing. They'll pump it and some of your other prowess creatures further while keeping them alive (and sometimes making them unblockable).
A side note that's less important is, if you have them, a few more fetches never hurt in fast decks. Especially because of the Grim Lavamancers. :)

Boros Charm in my opinion works better than battle rage since it also has other modes to either save my creatures from a board wipe or to deal some quick burn damage.
Kiln Fiend is in fact good, but it seems too weak toughness wise since it only gets +3 to power so it can get easily killed unless i use Brute Force. I also just prefer hoplite more since it can stay big because of its counters and can scry at the same time.
