to me, i think the Izzet Guildmage is good here. i've actually copied your deck on here and have been making my own changes to it. right now i've found a way to storm off with him that is quite interesting. the Rite of Flame could possibly be replaced with one of the cards from above. each time i playtest the deck i never get that combo to go off, so most of the time it may be a dead draw. however, early game being able to cast 1 of them gets the Aetherflux Reservoir out a turn early.
it could be replaced with more card draw as well such as Opt as well.
as for the deck i've been working with, here is a link to it so you can check it out and playtest it:

Yes, Yes, yes... It's all falling together! cackles maniacally
I see what you mean, and its a lot to take in . . . But, I do agree, there are a lot of ways to go with this. Right now I'm working out the numbering and the exact strat, but one more question.

Make a mono red deck, and have only stuff that cost one or two mana and deals damage like Shock, Lightning Bolt, Gut Shot, Burst Lightning, Chain Lightning, Firebolt, Lava Spike, Pillar of Flame, Wild Slash, and then add stuff like Rite of Flame, and Figure of Destiny. This deck is able to beat even the best mtg players with their own personal decks.

shrapnel_ Empty the Warrens is only useful for impact tremors, so it would muddy up the flow, I feel. Rite of Flame is like Seething Song, only slightly worse, as it also kind of slows the flow. I do, however, really like Manamorphose, as it is essentially just a free card in hand that allows for more deck cycling. I will try to find a place to add that in, as it seems helpful.

Nobody has mentioned Empty the Warrens. Lots of storm decks like one of those as well. With Impact Tremors out it would deal the same damage as grapeshot and leave you with a field of tokens. Rite of Flame and Manamorphose seem to be pretty standard for manafixing/ramp as well.

Thanks for the suggestions Von.Banamaor, you certainly put forward some interesting points. Unfortunately the issue with Simian Spirit Guide is that it involves exiling in order to get 1 mana, while Rite of Flame replaces itself in terms of mana and counts as a non-creature spell cast for Firebrand Archer, Thermo-Alchemist, and Monastery Swiftspear. A lot of the time this difference will only mean 1 or 2 damage more dealt but a lot of the time it's actually worth it. In summary I feel like it's a lot down to personal preference, as some people may prefer to have Simian as a backup 2/2 creature. Also in regards to Lava Spike, I found in previous iterations of the deck that I needed the straight damage to my opponent's face and that Spike provided that dome damage. Perhaps for greater board interaction I could put a few copies of Shock in the sideboard?Also it's great to hear that my list helped give inspiration for your own decklist, Renegade Tactics can be really sweet for making Swiftspear more evasive in tough board-states.
