Needs at least 22 land. also Curse of the Pierced Heart is an option as pseudo-additional red shrines that are not limited to 1 on board. Shrine of Burning Rage is also good and super on theme. Leyline of Punishment should be in the deck in higher numbers or not at all since you want to always open with it. As an alternative to Leyline consider Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. Quest for Pure Flame is also a card that is best at 4 because you want to see it early. Max out Lightning Bolt. It is just so good and somewhat on theme. Nice to see a Kamigawa/Ryusei type deck. Firebrand Archer could go to 4. -1 Torbran -4 Vexing Devil -2 Jaya -2 Leyline -1 Honden -2 Comet Storm -2 Chandra's Fury -4 Ember-Fist Zubera -1 Shock +1 Mountain +4 Ramunap Ruins +2 Tibalt +1 Lightning Bolt +4 Shrine of Burning Rage +4 Curse of the Pierced Heart +1 Archer +2 Quest for Pure Flame is one way to go about changing it.

Curse of the Pierced Heart seems like a quick way to make an opponent hate you. If they don't have an answer to the enchantment, they might turn to player removal to get rid of it.
Heartless Hidetsugu is definitely powerful, though it has some rather dampening downsides. At 5 CMC, he will be in the top 10% of the cards by cost. This combined with him not doing anything the turn he is played makes it hard to include him.
Scour from Existence would be the highest CMC card on the list if it made it in. There is a definite usefulness in being able to remove any permanent, but it is just too high CMC to play.

Curse of the Pierced Heart for a bolt every turn on a certain player.
Heartless Hidetsugu for a race you win because you're getting an extra 2 damage each time.
Leyline of Punishment for an answer to decks that have options against burn.

in terms of fog effects like you said its closer to Indestructibility being safe from Lightning Bolt or pingers like Grim Lavamancer but can still get hit by Doom Blade with the having the additional weakness of "damage cant be prevented" effect from Skullcrack or Leyline of Punishment and such.
I think its a matter of preference for whatever homebrewed scenarios your decks will face... sometimes intentional weakness/limitations are beneficial as a teaching tool... but for overall most resilience id go with either indestructible or instant speed protection.

Looks like a solid deck. Looks alot like my deck, Basic Boros Burn: Tier one version (the goal). But I have to ask, why a playset of Leyline of Combustion ? Its great if it's in your opening hand, but wont it be a dead card if it's not? Same with Leyline of Punishment . I think three copies of Skullcrack should replace it in your side board, with one copy of Rest in Peace . But I'm still a new player, and honestly Leyline of Combustion looks fun to play around with!
