Shweet. Rakdos Aggro really isn't my thing, but herewego:
T2, Heartless Summoning.
T3: Priest of Urabrask for 1, giving you a total of 5 mana, drop 1 for Mass Hysteria (I highly doubt any creature they put out will be bigger or more aggressive than yours, so it's a net gain for you.) and drop 2 for Nova Chaser, champion flamkin brawler, swing for 9 trample. Spend the other 2 perhaps on... Hellrider, for even more aggro?
Great filler cards for this deck would be things like Flamekin Harbinger, to ensure you hit your chasers, or Thunderblust perhaps. Scorchwalker is a pretty sexy bloodrush. Heartless Summoning is great, but if you wanted to get rid of it for some reason, Smokebraider is pretty sexy, as is Generator Servant.
...I kinda wanna make an elemental tribal now xD

Kor Spiritdancer is strictly better than mesa. the only playable modern enchantress really. should really probably consider Ethereal Armor Dragon Mantle maybe even Gift of Orzhova too on the aura end if you havent already. Hammerhand is the slot id point to. that card is annoying and rude, but i feel modern is too powerful that youre way too likely to just get 2-for-1ed on it so often that the bonuses you get for landing it half the time or something dont work out numbers-wise in the end. especially with the low number of creatures you are running. the selesnya aura blitz that resembles this a bit relies on the hexproof aspect of the creature bodies to prevent spot removal creating 2 and 3 for 1s.
as a strategy, its a brutal cannon when it fires, but its vulnerable enough stacking all those permanents on the board that alot of the competitive boros stuff always retreats a bit into burn.
theres another way to go with this that ive tinkered around with a bit that might have some ideas for you to consider too: Fencing Ace Boros Swiftblade and Mirran Crusader. they leave open a bunch of really degenerate things you can do with weird tools like Scorchwalker (cant be countered) and some of the swords and utility lands. dont forget your lands! Slayers' Stronghold is fantastic in this boros blitz!

Gleam of Battle is a little slow, but a one-of might not be off the mark.

Bear in mind that Scorchwalker won't trigger any Heroic since its an activated ability and not a spell being cast.
I would play Launch the Fleet to trigger as many Heroes as you want and to fill your field with soldiers!
This isn't post-rotation already, is it? Then what about Boros Charm ?

This is my version of Xenagos, God of Revels EDH: Xenegos, God of "You're Swinging with a HOW BIG?". Since it is based on his abilities and isn't just G/R good stuff as most Xenagos lists I have seen are; it is super cheap. All you need are creatures with high power and something to give your guys evasion of some sort. Since toughness doesn't matter as much cards like Scorchwalker which are super cheap monetarily become great since it is basically a 10/6. Put a Primal Rage out and all of a sudden a weak card becomes a huge problem.
