Quest for Pure Flame
Whenever a source you control deals damage to an opponent, you may put a quest counter on Quest for Pure Flame.
Remove four quest counters from Quest for Pure Flame and sacrifice it: If any source you control would deal damage to a creature or player this turn, it deals double that damage to that creature or player instead.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer is not modern legal. Fortunately, there are other critters that do what he does: Kederekt Parasite and Fate Unraveler . If you add both of these, you can make drawing cards very painful for the opponent.
And I think Quest for Pure Flame would work well with this kind of strategy, since it could come down early, and activate as the enchantments ping the opponent, and be used to kill the opponent when you make them draw a bunch of cards, with Cerebral Vortex or Runeflare Trap or whatever.

I would say Aether Vial would be better than Heartless Summoning at helping power out the minotaurs. Once it gets three counters, put a free Ragemonger on to the battlefield, then use your mana to cast the rest of your hand. Aether Vial also makes the drawback of Ruinous Minotaur irrelevant.
If you're willing to give up on the idea of Minotaur Tribal, but you could put your Boros Reckoner and Fanatic of Mogis in a devotion to red deck: something with Leyline of Lightning , Quest for Pure Flame , Goblin Chainwhirler , and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , maybe?

There is a couple of suggestions I would make. Sunscorched Desert triggers Quest for Pure Flame and may allow you to activate it earlier. Firebrand Archer is another alternative to Thermo-Alchemist , only difference being it can deal 2 dmg to an unprotected opponent.
I'm sure you could find something better than Browbeat , three cards for three mana isn't the most effective way to get fresh cards. Faithless Looting is great and would combo with Fiery Temper . Bomat Courier is also an option.

Guttersnipe is what you need, with 28 instant/sorcery it is a must. I would replace Lightning Strike with Magma Jet for the scry 2 effect. Check my similar deck, Guttersnipe's Burning Rage. You should consider Sunscorched Desert as well. Otherwise it's a good budget deck, maybe you could remove a couple of spells to ad Quest for Pure Flame , it's really easy to trigger and would double damage around turn 3/4.

Well I've uh never actually won with this deck. The people I play with just have more money and more cards but the main idea is to get out Quest for Pure Flame and then either go for Fireball , Bonfire of the Damned or Incite Rebellion to try and do as much damage as I can. The closet I got was able to toss out 12 Fireball each dealing 14 damage but then someone played Teferi's Protection and one shot me the next turn.

I'd recommend either Soul-Scar Mage or Monastery Swiftspear to give you another low mana cost creature and an early play, they also both survive Pyroclasm. You might also want to consider a couple of copies of Cryptic Serpent, which isn't quite a budget Bedlam Reveler, but it's similar enough.
A quick note on Guttersnipe, it's a trap, partly because he's a horrible topdeck and partly due to cards like Pyromancer Ascension and Quest for Pure Flame, which perform a similar role but are harder to remove and cost less to cast. Eidolon of the Great Revel appears in modern burn because your opponent is forced to burn themselves to just play magic and most spells used in modern are under 3 CMC, since it's a turn 4 format.
On the subject of traps Traumatize isn't a good card either, primarily because it cost's 5 mana, even mill decks don't play it. Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Tormenting Voice or even Magmatic Insight are all better choices, probably in the order I've written them. I hope this is of some help, good luck brewing your deck.
