: Add to your mana pool. When that mana is spent to cast a red instant or sorcery spell, copy that spell and you may choose new targets for the copy.
Pyromancer's Goggles Discussion
5 days ago
First off you need about 10-12 more lands and Gifts Ungiven is banned in commander. Ditch the 2nd Sure Strike then go buy a Pyromancer's Goggles , Primal Amulet Flip and Swarm Intelligence . You need to cut some cards to make room for the added lands. I'm not gonna point you in any direction with your deck cuz it's kinda all over the place and I don't know what you're after beyond copying instants/sorceries but I'd definitely ditch Kozilek's Sentinel and narrow your overall aim of the deck...is it prowess with buffs? tokens? countering? board control?...
Some other cards worth suggesting: Dualcaster Mage . Naru Meha, Master Wizard . God-Eternal Kefnet . Echo Mage . The Mirari Conjecture . Jori En, Ruin Diver . Mirrorpool . Dual Casting . There are a few instants/sorceries that copy your next instant/sorcery as well.
Good luck with your brew!

Before I begin, I'd like to preface this with the fact that I want this to work, you have no idea.
1.) How do you intend to fish out Genju of the Spires ? It seems fairly important for the deck to run, but I worry it will get flooded out of the odds by the 56 Mountains.
2.) How do you cast things when there's little/no land on your side of the field? I think a deck like this would appreciate some kind of ramp, especially since Fling is going to get hella pricey after the first one or two castings.
What others already said:
Jaya Ballard ; doubles as draw power.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance ; also doubles as an additional source of damage.
Pyromancer's Goggles ; more for spell duplication, but still. Why wouldn't anyone want to duplicate Fling here?
Neheb, the Eternal ; almost necessary with how much Fling will cost down the road. You'll get at least 4-6 mana in the post-combat main phase for the Fling you casted earlier.
Crucible of Worlds ; it would be good to have at least a second form of land recursion. It's one the best pieces you can hope for outside of Green.
Crawlspace ; see above.
Repercussion ; another form of creature suppression in its own way.
Fire Servant ; even more Fling mileage; doesn't double damage dealt to you.
. . .
That's all that comes to mind off the top of my head. I'll be interested in seeing if/how this deck progresses.

The reason I don't use cards like Electrostatic Field or Firebrand Archer is because they will deal the damage whether you want them to or not. You must have control over who takes odd damage and even if you can even out two opponents but then odd the other one, you're in just as bad of a position. Solid recommendations though, I like where your head is at.
As for Pyromancer's Goggles and Paradox Engine , you'll notice that the curve tops out at 5, minus some obvious exceptions. This is because after hidetsugu is out, or the onset of him coming out, you want your plays to be as impactful as possible with the threat of ending the game right there. Once Hidetsugu or a x2dmg effect hits the field you are automatically the highest priority threat if your opponents are smart. You won't have time to make your value back on these cards as your crescendo of fire is at its apex at this point in the game. Remember it's the quality of the taps, not the quantity. One tap, maybe two is all you really need to burn down the table. But this being said the deck could really use some fast Manas like Grim Monolith and moxes which I fully intend to get for faster games.
Impact Resonance is actually a solid card for this deck. Very relevant, and I'd leave it up to your choice and your meta if you'd want to include it. For me, there aren't enough aggro decks in my group to justify it over some of my other choices.

This is an awesome list!
Since a third of your deck is instant/sorceries do you think Electrostatic Field or Guttersnipe work at all for you? Electrostatic Field for pinging everyone 1 at a time to bring people to proper odd or even if necessary. Probably too situational but still.
Maybe Paradox Engine for untap utility?
Not sure if any of those actually help but they seem like they could fit in.

A few thoughts. This is gonna be some word vomit, so take what you please. I'm also only going to suggest more budget-friendly cards, since this is casual (so no Cyclonic Rift ).
- My first thought is to get this strictly down to 60 cards. Your chances of getting to what you need is significantly higher for every number you go above 60. With a deck like this, cut it down to about 23 lands, and fill in the rest.
- Take out Kasmina's Transmutation . There are so many good red/blue removal. From Lightning Bolt to Lava Coil ; from Vapor Snag to Curse of the Swine .
- You don't want too many counterspells, cause permanent removal is just as good most of the time, so I'd take out Counterflux and bump up Ionize to four copies.
- Hijack should definitely be a sideboard card, since control is a popular archetype. Same goes for Protean Raider .
- You have more than , so Pyromancer's Goggles might not be the best fit, but running a 1 of isn't too bad.
- You can never have too many Young Pyromancer s if you are running spells! Also see Murmuring Mystic and Talrand, Sky Summoner .
- Keranos, God of Storms is legendary and top of your curve. Consider cutting 1-2, but definitely leave him.

This deck seems sweet! Looking through the list, I'm much more convinced that the aggro side works!
I don't like: Hero of Oxid Ridge (this card just seems bad) Tormod's Crypt , (there are better graveyard removal options) Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring (these always get removed in my experience) Borrowed Hostility (I think I want my pump spells to either draw a card or be stronger than this)
I'd test: Mirrorwing Dragon Pyromancer's Goggles Primal Amulet Flip (this saves you a lot of mana on the 2+ cmc spells) Zada, Hedron Grinder (synergizes really well) Shelter (draw seems incredibly important for feather) Weathered Wayfarer (staple for boros imo) Crimson Wisps (better than accelerate) Chandra's Ignition Fight with Fire Boros Charm is probably just better than Assault Strobe and should probably come in.
