16 lands and 4 borderposts is a very difficult mana base with which to cast cards that 5 or 6 mana in three different colors.
I would advise you to cut the borderposts (they are not very good) and just go to 23 lands, with some amount of comes-into-play-tapped lands and/or Evolving Wilds/Esper Panorama. And if you do add an artifact, make that artifact Prophetic Prism.
Apart from that you will have a very hard time to win with this deck. Your best way to deal damage is Skyfisher pecking away for 2 per turn. Additionally, besides preventing the opponent dealing damage to you, you have very few ways to interact with what the opponent is doing, which is not necessarily bad, but I am just noting that.
Finally, as the most extreme suggestion, cut a color. Tri-color is very difficult in pauper and rarely worth it. Here, for example, black is your secondary color, but brings almost nothing to the table - the rats have mediocre effect (yes, you can prevent the opponent from drawing a card by blinking them, but being color-screwed is worse), the unearth does not revive your most impactful creatures, sign in blood is just a worse Mulldrifter in this deck, while supernatural stamina is an ok blink card, but can just be a Cloudshift.
Alternatively, you can cut blue. Blue brings momentary blink flashback, perilous research, and ponder. This a lot less cards to cut. Momentary blink -> Undying Evil, research -> sign in blood, ponder -> more undying evil/supernatural stamina. The best blue card is Mulldrifter but you are not playing that, so no loss really. Augur of Skulls is good if you have 8 copies of undying evil/stamina.

Lol sorry. Your right. Kinda of an odd ruling. Anyway your list is really sweet. I think I'll throw it together and give it a whirl. However how essential do you think the Rancor and Aura Gnarlid synergy is? Personally I would like to lean ether harder into the Aura Gnarlid plan or maybe cut those four cards to fill out the playset of bolts and maybe a Prophetic Prism . I think with some tweaking and optimization this deck could be really top tier =).

I think you'd like Unquestioned Authority . Like Traveler's Cloak, it makes Brago unblockable and can be flickered with his ability for extra draw. These might interest you too: Curator's Ward (protects Brago and gives extra draw when he flickers himself! You can flicker the Ward as well, but be sure to leave 1 creature unflicked so the Ward has somewhere to land), Sunblast Angel , Heliod's Pilgrim , Totem-Guide Hartebeest , Flickerform , Coveted Jewel , Mulldrifter , Cloudblazer , Prophetic Prism , Azorius Signet , Fellwar Stone , Tsabo's Web , Nevermaker , Sovereigns of Lost Alara

Faeburrow Elder is a huge mana source and in an aristocrat deck you can recur it.
Prophetic Prism , the Signets, and other similar effects can convert your red mana into actual mana.

Without paying too much attention right now there are some things I can say:
If you want to use a tutor, use Mastermind's Acquisition . It costs the same amount of mana and it's around the same price.

Also, why no Lightning Bolt ? It’s great in most red decks, especially midrange.

That is a cool base, and you got a couple of cool green tron cards like grazer and rotation. When you include the chromatic artifacts, you can also include all other colors you want, some utility lands like a Bojuka Bog and Haunted Fengraf .
Additionally, remove 4 devastators, 4 blisterpods and 2 or 3 crushers (6 big dudes are quite enough), add 1 Rolling Thunder (+2,3 mountains instead of all forests); 4 Mulldrifter as it is incredibly good; 3 Prophetic Prism and 2-3 utility cards - Weather the Storm , Scour from Existence , Mnemonic Wall are examples of that.
