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.

My only thoughts are that in my playgroup I would struggle with this deck because of politics. Someone would take me out before I could finish them. Spell Pierce is a less-than-optimal card, because usually players have plenty of mana available in a commander game. So you might pull it off, but more often than not, it would be a dead card in your hand. To close the game more quickly, consider adding damage doublers like Dictate of the Twin Gods, Quest for Pure Flame, Angrath's Marauders, Furnace of Rath, Fire Servant or Overblaze.

Needs at least 22 land. also Curse of the Pierced Heart is an option as pseudo-additional red shrines that are not limited to 1 on board. Shrine of Burning Rage is also good and super on theme. Leyline of Punishment should be in the deck in higher numbers or not at all since you want to always open with it. As an alternative to Leyline consider Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. Quest for Pure Flame is also a card that is best at 4 because you want to see it early. Max out Lightning Bolt. It is just so good and somewhat on theme. Nice to see a Kamigawa/Ryusei type deck. Firebrand Archer could go to 4. -1 Torbran -4 Vexing Devil -2 Jaya -2 Leyline -1 Honden -2 Comet Storm -2 Chandra's Fury -4 Ember-Fist Zubera -1 Shock +1 Mountain +4 Ramunap Ruins +2 Tibalt +1 Lightning Bolt +4 Shrine of Burning Rage +4 Curse of the Pierced Heart +1 Archer +2 Quest for Pure Flame is one way to go about changing it.

Suns_Champion - Thank you! Yes, Underworld Breach is going in as soon as I get a spare copy, probably instead of Shreds of Sanity. Endless Atlas and Quest for Pure Flame have been in the list before, but they are on the shortlist of cards that I'm considering putting back in, if I can work out what to take out. Maybe I need to keep a quasi-sideboard with the deck and switch it up between games.
Ignite the Future is a lot better than I thought when I first read it, as it has the Commune with Lava wording - end of your next turn. The flashback free cast is handy too - doesn't work with X cost spells, but from that 'may' wording I think you could still choose to pay X costs as normal (if you had any mana left after paying the flashback cost, of course). Definitely worth considering, although I'm not sure what to replace.
Other probable Ikoria/Commander 2020 updates - Twinning Staff, Deflecting Swat and maybe Shiny Impetus? Surly Badgersaur has some good discard synergy, but I don't want to add any more creatures if I can help it.

"I haven't been able to test this deck in a while, but I have continued to make (questionable) updates as new sets come out."
Man I feel that SO much hahahaha
Awesome deck man, one mono-red player to another. This is a tight list.
A few suggestions that have been really good in my Neheb deck:

Hello WarpedZerghead and thanks for your suggestion :)
In addition, Furnace of Rath is nice but I find upsides to each other damage doubler I actually run.

There are a couple of more permanent Damige Doublers that I'd like a bit better than Quest for Pure Flame like Furnace of Rath and Gratuitous Violence. Also, if you want to be mean to people, I'm pretty sure you should try Ruric Thar, the Unbowed. I knwo he can hit you as well, but chances are people are gonna be more concerned with him. You can also try Zhur-Taa Druid because he fits in the theme and is ramp.
Try an mitigate some heavy loss of life with Loxodon Warhammer and Shadowspear and maybe include a tad bit more recursion. I'd also try running Wildfire just to mess with people, but you might need some help recovering from that.

Sweet deck love the idea of keep or kill! Very impressed with the budget too! Jalira, Master Polymorphist seems like too much value for you to pass up and within budget I think. Primal Growth also seems like a good fit. Quest for Pure Flame although not a perfect fit double and sometimes quad dammage is always fun espescialy when your hitting your opponent with their creature who is twice as strong when on your side... seems like a dramatic betrayal. Temur Ascendancy also feels like a must have for this one! Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall also seem like good includes instead of the brainstorm or Temur Runemark .
I'm sure you can get a copy of Mimic Vat for 50 cents and it would be adding insult to injury having your opponents creature come back turn after turn to beat them up.
