Probably a couple more of Supreme Verdict, so that you can say NO to any Aggro player a Leyline of Punishment out of the sideboard, and defiantly a Rest in Peace and Stony Silence in the sideboard, as they basically say "you win the game" against certain decks.

alrighty, considering i just made a burn deck that is somewhat similar i think i can offer some advice, i think it would be nice to add some Chain Lightning to your deck, Searing Blood is a little more consistent than searing blaze but that's personal preference, also for creatures its not bad to consider Kiln Fiendor Chandra's Spitfire or even Guttersnipealthough the creatures you have now are nice. If you're looking for a planeswalker that's low cost i'd suggest Chandra, Pyromaster. additionally another good burn card that's super fun is Book Burning which isn't too common so it works really well. Lastly i'd suggest adding a few Reverberate burn tends to struggle against life link, a good way to counter this if you come to this problem is Leyline of Punishment

One thing I did a while back with nivix cyclops and kiln fiend was splashed black for a Playset of Tainted Strike but you would need fetches to color fix. It gets around life gain decks. Leyline of Punishment is also good.
W/B spirits or was it just tokens? That can be a hard match. Echoing Truth can help wipe all the tokens and you need gy hate to stop Lingering Souls from coming back. The anthems would be hard to remove so you need to try to counter those.
Junk/abzan is always a hard match, but that's why it's expensive. One thing that hurts them the most is messing with their lands. Blood Moon or Spreading Seas / Sea's Claim might be useful. Keeping them off colors and bolting dorks slows them down quite a bit. The cards to punish this deck aren't really in your colors. The discard is what hurts the most. Leyline of Sanctity is the best but since it's not color viable for you Nephalia Academy might be a better budget choice.
Just tossing out some ideas. It's hard to sideboard for every deck in modern so sometimes it feels like a game of rock paper scissors. You can't beat rock with scissors but paper will always lose.
Best I've ever done with my version of this was 2nd place and I also lost to junk. I had Gitaxian Probe and Mutagenic Growth with just some unblockable spells on a fiend or cyclops. Spell heart was in there for a while till I played Wee Dragonauts in its place. Keep trying to make it better and the more you play the better your match ups will be.

I prefer Rain of Gore over Everlasting Torment as well, if you were going to go this route. There is also Leyline of Punishment. If you are playing burn, any spell that costs 3 mana or more is going to preform iffy. You have to keep tempo sometimes while not getting as many land drops as your opponent so that's why everything in burn is 1 or 2 mana. You have a good start on your instanst/sorceries and creatures you just need more copies of them. I would replace Magma Spray with more Skullcrack here, you'll be amazed at how much lifegain/damage prevention is in the format.

Aggravated Assault - more attacks is always good
Dauthi Embrace - give Alesha shadow.
Fanatical Devotion - more instant speed sac and save Alesha from a nuke.
I also like to run Leyline of Punishment, Forsaken Wastes and Sulfuric Vortex to hose Oloro or any lifegain decks really. Although, wastes and vortex aren't currently in my Alesha build, they're still good cards FOR her.

Have a peek at my deck if you have the gumption.

Eidolon of the great Revel is a 100% no. Used it, didn't like it, never again. And Goblin Guide is way too expensive, the fetch lands I can use in other multi color decks, but I don't like spending so much money on cards that are really ever only useful in one deck. I set skullcracks aside for now, since I use Leyline of Punishment should I ever face lifegainers. And Rift Bolts are actually also set aside, infact I did replace them with the Rituals, but they don't seem to work too well in a multicolored burn, guess I'll throw rift bolts back in.

Erebos, God of the Dead is probably the best help against pesky life gain decks, for it does not prohibit you, as well as provide some card advantage.
