Magma Jet deals 2 damage to target creature or player. Scry 2. (To scry 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

Magma Jet Discussion

Guttersnipe in a burn deck... Yuck, new player often evaluate the goblin as an extra 2 damage when they cast every Lightning Bolt, that sounds good! It isn't, in a burn deck Guttersnipe does nothing the turn it comes into play, it is an awful top deck and probably the card I tell people to cut from their decks the most. If I want something at CMC 3 in burn (which I probably don't) I'd play Hell's Thunder or Ball Lightning , since your already in white, you could even use Monastery Mentor or Spark Trooper ...
You aren't running any card draw, so replace Shock with Thunderous Wrath , in a similar vein Searing Spear is ok, but Magma Jet lets you setup your draws... Hope this helps (apologies for the Guttersnipe rant, but the card is bad), have fun and good luck with your brew.

Vampire Nocturnus is a cool card, however land are colourless (24) Burst Lightning, Shock are red (8), is 32 cards, so more than 50% of your deck won't effect Nocturnus. Luckily there are alternatives Stromkirk Condemned or Metallic Mimic , critically they both also cost less to cast than Nocturnus. Using one of these lets you play the red spells, however Burst Lightning, Shock aren't really Modern level, I'd swap them to Magma Jet and either Rift Bolt or the classic Lightning Bolt . Or you could stay almost mone black with Alms of the Vein and Pharika's Cure ... Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage I'll keep the Sword-Point Diplomacy because I like the card idea. I'll do some changes like trade 4x Ghitu Lavarunner to 4x Monastery Swiftspear and 4x Wizard's Lightning to 4x Rift Bolt and 4x Lightning Strike to 4x Magma Jet I'll keep Viashino because I dont think Thunderous Wrath will fit in this deck. Hey bro I'm very grateful for the help :D

Honestly I'd stay mono red unless you have a good reason not to. I'd convert this into a more classic burn list after that. Some substitutions that I'd make are:
Lightning Strike -> Magma Jet burn + scry at the same mana cost.
Wizard's Lightning -> Rift Bolt guaranteed one mana bolt, the wizard clause makes Lightning too fragile.
Ghitu Lavarunner -> Monastery Swiftspear one of the best creatures for a burn deck.
Viashino Pyromancer -> Thunderous Wrath one mana for 5 damage is a pretty likely scenario here.

Thanks for the help! Ramunap Ruins is super helpful and definitely helps with the flooding issue. I'm currently tuning up the amount of draw by upping Magma Jet to 4 and seeing how it runs from there. I really appreciate your suggestions, have a great rest of your weekend!

Putting in 4x Khalni Garden makes a turn 2 Emy with just two rituals. I had good testing with those four, two additional Magma Jet, and a Cathartic Reunion, replacing them for the four Crimson Wisps, two Expedite, and one Hordeling Outburst. I was discarding wisps turn 1 if I had a possible turn 3 Indomitable Creativity hand anyway, and having 25 land doesn't seem to bother a deck with this much digging. The little bit of extra interactivity from Magma Jet after already having a creature to target from a turn 1 plant token helps.

i can certainly see how that can be awesome M_Malcom. I like the synergy Boros Reckoner has with Skred as well as all the 2 damage burn spells like Magma Jet/Pyroclasm with the added bonus of a battlefield presence. Im gonna playtest it with replacing Molten Rain/Stormbreath Dragon and see how it pans out. Thanks!

This current list is comprised of cards that I currently had in my collection and I was able to throw together into a budget deck. Thank you to Cereal_Killer for your suggestions. I will definitely be adding 4 Lightning Bolt and 2 Serum Visions eventually (aka once my package arrives). Some of your other suggestions are fantastic and I will definitely be adding a few in. Counterflux is a great option and will probably be replacing Negate, which will be moved to the sideboard. Skullcrack and Magma Jet will probably be added in the future, once I figure out what to remove.
Omniscience and Nexus of Fate are mainly in the deck because I had them and I also enjoy a good meme. If I could set it up, I could go Omniscience into Niv-Mizzet, Parun into a bunch of spells, and maybe into Nexus of Fate with Thousand-Year Storm on the board (such a janky combo, but hilarious to think about). Of course, Omniscience and Nexus of Fate in this deck are 'win more' cards, so I've decided to only include 1 of each.
Once my cards arrive, I'll change out the decklist on here. Thank you again Cereal_Killer for your suggestions.
