Power of Fire Discussion

This is a good start! You might consider these: Warstorm Surge (causes your general and your assassins to murder a dude when they enter), Fire Whip , Power of Fire , Unquestioned Authority , Asha's Favor , Stuffy Doll , Lapse of Certainty , Royal Assassin , Mogg Maniac , Dread .
I have a Queen M deck too if you wanna check it out. It has rattlesnakes and a lot of atypical stuff too that you might find interesting.

Nice list, seems perfect for your friend's playstyle! I find cards like Viridian Longbow / Fire Whip / Power of Fire super useful with Queen M for rattlesnaking. Warstorm Surge is cool as well, since if monarchy is lost, Queen M will make a deathtouching assassin every turn that murders on impact. You might like these too: Unquestioned Authority (makes a dude unblockable, or a perfect blocker, and replaces itself! perfect for maintaining monarchy and also a flavor win), Pariah (enchant an opponent's creature. surely they'd gladly die protecting the Queen), Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts .

fun deck! A couple things come to mind.
I like that humble defector is in here Soldevi Sentry and Wall of Shards are other great political pieces (although wall of shards has shot up in the past couple weeks with all the new snow decks going around, might want to wait to get one) Oath of Lieges is probably my favorite political card. Nobody wants to kill you.

The curve feels too high, and some of your card choices are fairly low-impact. Cunning Sparkmage and Vulshok Sorcerer are best in combo lists ( Banishing Knack/Intruder Alarm/Cowardice/Fractured Loyalty/Power of Fire ) where they are a win condition rather than anything playing more linear, because 1 damage/turn for three mana is weak on its own.
They can work in more casual Deep-Slumber Titan lists. With Goblin Fireslinger existing though, (used for the bloodthirst mechanic) they almost never see play. Gorgon's head synergy just isn't reliable enough to see play outside Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile commander, and is best non-budget for Basilisk Collar.
Looking for that kind of synergy is exactly the right mindset for effective budget deckbuilding, you just need to get used to all the options so you can find the good stuff.
Its best to go hard on exactly what you want to do with a deck, especially as a budget list. Expensive cards are usually the most versatile cards (or cards with no alternatives). So to play budget effectively, you need a strategy that keeps cropping up in MTG and go all-in. A direct damage burst with Quest is a good choice, and so is the incredible efficiency of Shrapnel Blast, so lets build around those. You want to spend a single turn taking somone from 14-15 to 0 with artifacts on the field.
Go to gatherer, advanced search. Search for red enchantments that might sit alongside quest to help hit that 'eight copy reliable' stage. Anything that catches your eye, add it to the maybeboard, so you can see how much each card costs. We can also do a search for 'double damage' and 'whenever a source damage' to pick up other likely options.
Don't grab cards costing 6 or more mana, because unless you build your entire deck to cast them, you'll never cast them. Assault Strobe, Temur Battle Rage, Dictate of the Twin Gods ( Fire Servant ), ( Curse of Bloodletting )Insult,Overblaze, The Flame of Keld all stand out to me.
But with them all sitting in or around the 5 mana slot, or being creatures pump spells, suddenly we have some deckbuilding restrictions. We need either a bunch of damage on the field which we abruptly double and win, or to spend five mana getting one to the battlefield then cast a bunch of spells.
So lets look at the tools mono-red has to do that. For the former, there are agressive creatures like Keldon Marauders, Mogg Fanatic, Mortarpod, , Seal of Fire Zektar Shrine Expedition, Emberwilde Augur etc, for the latter Fling Spark Elemental etc.
Getting a big list of all the options then picking the best, looking at both price and effect is a good habit to get into with deckbuilding- Learning to trim the fat and spot strong options helps immensely with draft formats, and can help massively streamline your lists. If you are having trouble finding options, look into the archived standard deckbuilding discussions for an archetype that might have useful tools, and steal those.
Just remember, redundant copies of any spell makes it good, and casting spells on turns 1-2-3 is very good.
on I hate you.

ErikLeber you have to cast a spell that specifically targets Agent of the Fates to trigger heroic. so if you enchant it with Power of Fire you'll trigger heroic but you can't trigger it repeatedly with the tap affect of power of fire as you are not casting additional spells but rather using an activated ability.
I believe that's what Elitizt meant

Creatures with wither or infect can throw counters around with Fire Whip, Power of Fire, Lavamancer's Skill and Burning Anger. The Hateflayer goes crazy with one of these to tap, then untap, repeat as often as you have mana. Pretty funny on Stigma Lasher as well.
Arcane Lighthouse might help.
You have a LOT of creatures that would be great in a Soul Foundry because of effects that take place as they enter of leave the battlefield.

Thanks for checking it out. My mistake it wasn't my intention to make it seem like I was tapping and making opponents sac, I just meant I only use Power of Fire on Agent of the Fates for the one time sac effect when it's enchanted. I Can always use Viridian Longbow on Agent of the Fates or the other 2 deathtouch creatures but that enchantment is strictly to activate the heroic effect. Also didn't mean targeting Agent of the Fates would trigger heroic if that's how it sounded.

Power of Fire's "tap deal 1 damage to target" shouldn't trigger Agent of Erebos's sac, effect as it's not a spell. You would get one sacrifice out of it when you enchanted the Agent of Erebos with the Power of Fire aura...but tapping to deal damage to the Agent won't trigger the sacrifice effect, because that's an ability and not a spell. I'm afraid you have been playing these cards and effects illegally.
