That's not a bad point. Mizzium Mortars would also be a strong consideration in mono red. Lovestruck Beast is a problem; I guess it depends on your meta. If there's more Beasts, definitely Roast ; if more Glorybringer , then Lava Coil or Mortars may be better.

You should add Gauntlets of Light . It goes infinite with Faeburrow Elder as long as it taps for at least 4. At which point you can cast your entire deck using Golos, then win with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . One idea is to run board wipes like Time Wipe and Realm-Cloaked Giant to clear the board after someone has committed to it. Jaya's Greeting , Murder , and Lava Coil can also help to remove annoying creatures early on. Flame Sweep is also a low cost mini wrath that can buy you time. I'd like to see more card draw, consider Growth Spiral , Opt , and Chemister's Insight . Finally my favorite card in my azorious control deck Teferi, Time Raveler , can help deal with control players and bounce troublesome creatures, artifacts, and enchantments while drawing you a card. The +1 is also good cause it gives your sorceries flash essentially.

For SB, in general, I feel that Lava Coil is better than Roast with Glorybringer breaking into the metagame.

Looks like fun! Cheers!

Also, Rekindling Phoenix is just awesome against removal decks. Or creature decks that try to block over and over. Flying gives great evasion against certain decks too. Atarka's command is... interesting in this list. Wild Slash seems good in this deck along with maybe 2 copies of Lava Coil . I would say all red decks in Pioneer should run some Abrade as the versatility it has is too great to ignore. Apologies on the long message... Hope some of it helped

I haven't considered much for a side board, as this is intended for BO1 (Best of 1) on MTG Arena at the moment. But here are a few quick thoughts on what it might include:

Hey I've had a look at the deck and i think it looks fun, most versions of the deck i see run Midnight Reaper or Icon of Ancestry over risk factor but if it works it works.

SB wise the key is to design it against the meta where you play do you play at your local shop, just with friends, on arena ect...

when you have identified the meta were you play you can design an accurate useful sideboard.

until then you can build a general one to help with key archetypes that have been played recently.

I would recommend something along the lines:

4x Duress this can be a key card against control match ups, being able to strip a key removal piece or even a sweeper is important! (if most control decks you play are esper or a lot of the decks you play against are mono black Specter's Shriek instead.

2x Legion's End even though this is no longer useful against golos (WHOOP WHOOP) it is useful against many match ups that run low cost threats in high numbers like golgari adventure and token decks.

2x Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord can really help against similar decks if you have one of these on the battlefield it starts to become difficult to race and it is recursion.

3x Midnight Reaper + 1x Icon of Ancestry alternate draw for matchups were they do not care so much about risk factor (maybe they are playing lifegain ect)

3x Lava Coil against recursive decks or decks that do not run shock-able creatures

I'm not saying this is the best side board to run by any means i'm just saying this is a great starting point

I've included a few effects in the side board for that, however I feel that it may not be needed in the main board due to the type of removal I have included. Justice Strike will hit almost every problem creature in standard, Lava Coil will kill a majority of what is seen in your tough match-ups (Gruul and Mono-Red), and Deafening Clarion will sweep up all the smaller threats of Mono-Black/Red/White as well as those for the adventure style decks.

I tried to fit it in the main deck but couldn't really figure out what to replace for it. I might switch it with Kaya's Wrath as it will still be castable without Fires of Invention .

Play tested it and did not too well. most notability facing Red/Blue decks with Improbable Alliance , Irencrag Pyromancer , and The Royal Scions as Irencrag Pyromancer can easily block all my non-buffed attacks and kill next turn via second card ability trigger. Giant Killer can tap her (adventure totally useless in this case) but as soon a second Irencrag Pyromancer is on the field hes a goner. maybe a forth Giant Killer could work as an extra in the sideboard?

For sideboard I would highly recommend Lava Coil for removal of Irencrag Pyromancer . And Disenchant at Improbable Alliance to shut down such decks.

I would also recommend Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice just to buff any non- Tenth District Legionnaire creatures and for the mentor ability for white only creatures if forced to use those.
