Thanks Magic_Faqs! I'll definitely make use of the Dryad of the Ilysian Grove and Prismatic Omen. I hadn't thought of that interaction before, and I'm definitely a fan. After seeing your comment about Cultivate, I realized that whenever I had it during games, there were always better options for ramp. That was a good call. As far as Raze goes, I've got to agree with you on that as well. No point in using that when I can play Strip Mine 5 times in 1 turn. I like Molten Disaster, but it does damage to each player, and that includes me. My health total is already low enough from using cards like Arid Mesa and Prismatic Vista multiple times too. For those reasons, as well as the fact that I have some very aggressive decks in my meta, I'll probably pass on it. I didn't know that card existed though, so thanks for that too! I might try to use that as a finisher in another list. Thanks again!

You should definitely include Dryad of the Ilysian Grove or Prismatic Omen so you can get a bigger payoff with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. To make space, I'd probably remove Raze and Cultivate. I haven't faced many decks where their game plan gets shut down from losing a land or two. And with a high land count combined with effects letting you play extra lands, Cultivate just seems unnecessary.
Try running Molten Disaster as a replacement for Starstorm. This will not just clear out creatures, but damage your opponent. And it's easy to give it split second so that your opponent can't respond.

Reznorboy, Past in Flames seems awesome in theory, but is a bit too costly for this deck. To pay 4 mana and then the mana cost of whatever spells I want to flashback, most of the time I'd be able to recur one spell, maybe two, and forget about casting it for its own flashback cost. Desperate Ritual and spells like that are certainly something I'm considering, if I can find the right one or two. Mana Seism is really the only one I'm using at the moment. Also, hell yes build that Tasigur deck!
Peoyogon, I'm already running Boom / Bust and Impending Disaster, as well as Tectonic Break and quick spells like Raze and Tremble. Jokulhaups and some of the others you listed are too high mana cost. If I have that much mana to spend, I've either been messing up, or I've been doing amazing. If the latter, I have a lot more lands to lose than the opponents, and if the former it's probably too late to be helpful. And Decree of Annihilation is a hard no because I have a lot of interaction with my graveyard, and would be screwing myself if I exiled it. However, Boil and Ruination are certainly possible maybes.

So, I saw your post in reddit, and realized I had an RB Angler Pox list, and a Mono Red LD list, but not a Mono red Pox/Ponza/Stax/Crack the Earth list (I believe this archetype is closer to Ponza and to a lesser degree Pox, since we don't play any prison pieces to be Stax, and we don't play typical LD spells as, for instance, Mono Black LD).
Anyway, I decided to put up a rough, unpolished decklist which I might try, and might give you some ideas for your own deck. Goldfishing it a bit, it seemed slightly more consistent because of the higher mass of cantrips, and lower land count. Take a look, and tell me whatcha think. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mono-red-ldpoxcrack-the-earth/
Main changes are Akki Blizzard-Herder replacing Raze, since we can break akki's simmetry, but raze's gonna always be a 2 for 1, a higher mass of mana stones and cantripping artifacts, to keep the card flow, and have some mana sources after trembling and akki'ing, and finally Goblin Grenade/Heartfire which will sac our goblins to remove annoying creatures or burn our opponent's face.
The deck probably needs some more removal, and ways to get rid of wide boardstates, like your mainboard Electrickery, also doesn't have much of a board presence or a clear finisher as the RB version (you can check mine if you want https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/angler-pox/)
Finally, in case you wanna take a look, here's my creatureless mono red LD list, which I'll be updating anyday soon. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/creatureless-ponzaland-destruction/

I. Love. Goblin decks.
And this is a good one.
Next I would recommend Furious Assault. You're heavier on token production than creature spells, true, but the idea of any weenie deck is a-little-at-a-time, so since you're casting creatures pretty much every turn, it would help. Also synergies somewhat with Fires of Invention, and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell.
Lastly, you have a lot of mana ramp, but a somewhat low mana curve. I like the suggestion of Winter Orb mentioned earlier, but also I might include some amount of land destruction. Your opponents will need their land more than you do. Cheap spells like Raze and Tremble, permanents like Shivan Harvest, and bigger spells such as Tectonic Break, just to list a few examples. You might even be better served to use these in place of some of the mana ramp you're running, and could include Aether Vial to compensate.
Sorry for the novel. Looks pretty awesome already.

As for the beater, that's actually not a bad idea. There's also things like Slime Molding that you might like. Otherwise, just ignore me and have fun playing! =)
