Titan's Revenge (can be used multiple times and sort of scrys).
Uba Mask (If I can't draw cards then you can't either - also makes your wheels kind of fucked up brutal).

Let's say you have a Lightning Bolt imprinted on the Scepter, you can pay for the scepter thus copying the Bolt and then use Izzet Guildmage's 2U ability to copy the copy as it is still an instant. You could also use Reverberate for a similar effect.
However, with Chain of Acid I'm not sure you ever want to copy the spell, all it would do is speed up the process really as everything is still going to be gone.

In a situation where I cast a Reverberate / Fork effect with a Warrior's Oath on the stack can I use target my opponent with the copied Warrior's Oath so that they would be able to receive the effect?
Or will I receive the copied spell since Warrior's Oath does not specify a target in the text.

Love this kind of budget decks, lot of fun for little buck :) I have something similar, kiln fiend with Thermo-Alchemist. But it's mono red and as I wanted to be able to burn the way for Kiln fiend instead of making it unblockable I have included Flame Slash and Thunderous Wrath. Wild Guess is good match to Wrath, as I only want to play it for the miracle cost. Reverberate could be strong here, too. Quest for Pure Flame could escalate quickly as well.

Sorry all for the delayed responses. I have been on an island with no digital communication.
MegaMatt13, I have played with both Wild Ricochet and Reverberate. I found that game changing sorceries and instants were rarely of a type that I wanted to copy. The ones that were most likely for me to want to copy were counterspells, and my meta has been pretty short on them, until recently. I often found that the rest of the sorceries and instants were well taken care of with the rest of my cards, and they sat in my had without being played whenever I drew them. I cycled them out of the deck after looking at them sit in my had a bunch of times without targets.
As far as the suggestions, I may try out the other Threaten effects. I chose the ones I though would fit best, but will probably cycle through all to get an idea if others may work better.
I also go back and forth about Phyrexian Arena. Great card, just slow. I am thinking about revamping the card draw in the deck, see below.
sashaza, I will have to check out your deck. As for your questions:
Pillow fort cards are often powerful in duplicate, but there is a threshold over which any more of them would be less effective than it could be with another card. I often hold them, or ditch them to things like Solitary Confinement or Key to the City. It is surprising how often a card is useful in this deck as a generic card resource, and I can ditch less than useful cards to pay these resource costs. This is also true of things like Gift of Estates, Tithe, and Weathered Wayfarer. Cards in hand are useful, even if the specifics of the cards in hand are not.
That being said, I am considering adding more scry to the deck. I find that the Temples are often very useful, and they fly under the radar more than just drawing the card would. I am considering adding Crystal Ball, Seer's Lantern, and Hidden Stockpile, as well as the semi-loot cards Winds of Change and Molten Psyche. This would keep my profile low, while allowing me to dig for what I need. I find that scry is lower profile than draw or even looting, but I get what I need with it just the same. Combining scry with semi-loot, loot, subtle draw, and outright draw, including The Monarch, will likely put me good shape.
I keep resisting Gisela, the Broken Blade. She is a bomb, for sure, but she is expensive, and she is not at all subtle. I am sure that she would be a great inclusion, but I think she would cause some problems that would be counter to the best functioning of the deck. I am ever in search of Wincons that fit the theme.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a cheap Rattlesnake with an additional benefit, that is all. The play was for a sac outlet, even if it will be rare to have it all come together.
I will update the list and record my thought processes in updates as soon as I make them.

Flytrigreen Idea with anthem is cool! But I'm afraid I don't quite know how to put sound track on the deck page :-( Maybe later I read some info on TO forum about it.
IQuarent Thx you for suggestions!
Reverberate & Fork - I got your point IQuarent and in theory copiers can actually be nice for counter counterspells and use of strong sides of other colors spells. But in my practice (or maybe I just had bad luck with those two spells in my past experience) most of the time I want to have something else in my hand other than copier, cuz there was simply no target for it. Currently there is less than ten cards in deck which could be used with these two spells, I think this card number is very low and occupy two card slots for Reverberate and Fork not effective.
Still if I choose to put them in, any ideas what to cut?

I would strongly recommend as many copy spells as you can fit in the deck. Copy spells are very useful for a variety of reasons.
My favorite use of copy spells is targeting counterspells, choosing the counterspells as the target, ensuring your spells resolve.They're great against green decks or many other decks as well. Keeping, say, Reverberate in your opening hand lets you copy early Cultivates and Demonic Tutors that you wouldn't normally have access to. Late game copy Tooth and Nail(meaning yours resolves first and typically does so much damage that you kill them before their own Tooth and Nail) or Praetor's Counsel.
Since you're playing a spell deck, Reverberate and the like also allows you to copy your burn spells, pushing them that much farther and typically ending the game that much earlier.
