I wonder if in the past 4 years you realized that Rift Bolt Monastery Swiftspear and Lava Spike are good cards lol

The combo between Favored Hoplite and Rile is really good. Also, Ephemerate and Center Soul or Stave Off protect your creatures and provide more triggers. I have a weird love for Artful Maneuver, but Idk if it's objectively worth it. Unfortunately, Zada won't trigger everyone else's Heroic abilities, but it's still a very good card. Combo with Defiant Strike, Samut's Sprint, or Titan's Strength for big card advantage. Seeker of the Way is a popular include in Boros Feather, and it could probably make it's way into here. Monastery Swiftspear Monastery Mentor, Dreadhorde Arcanist, Boros Charm, Temur Battle Rage and Feather, the Redeemed are all good options to upgrade with if you have the money for them.

I don't think Lightning Strike is powerful enough. I would replace it with Monastery Swiftspear.

This is minor and probably doesn't matter in the grander scheme of the combo, but Monastery Swiftspear is just better than Fervent Champion here. Also Torch Courier could be used to give Drakuseth, Maw of Flames haste if you want to add insult to your opponents injury. That's just nitpicking though, because the combo is really cool!

Sprite Dragon will be great once ikoria comes out. shock is bad dont play shock, there are better versions like Burst Lightning and Firebolt enigma dragon is also pretty weak, Thing in the Ice  Flip is an auto include in this sorta deck. consider Monastery Swiftspear and Kiln Fiend as well. Manamorphose is super good

If you just want somthing 60$ and competitive/fast MTGgoldfish just featured a pretty decent 8-whack deck if your interested.

If your not, cut the nonbasic lands for some burn spells. 27 lands is way too many, and your nonbasics are too slow. I can't think why you would want to play G-Fang, so I would reccomend Monastery Swiftspear in it's place.
