Wirox, I've thought about Smokebraider, and initially planned to include it, but there are ample format staples of pauper that kill x/1s. It's also just not really a good turn 2 play for a deck that wants to beat down quickly.
I'll definitely consider adding a fourth Mulldrifter. It feels like a good idea but I'm not sure I want to mess with my aggressive creature base.
Thanks for the advice!

I really like this idea, I've been trying to make a good Pauper Elemental deck and yours actually looks nice, but I think it needs some improvements.
Smokebraider is a must-have in your deck. It's actually the main reason why you'd want to make an Elemental tribal in the first place.
Fireblast is a great card, but for burn-like decks. You are more aggro than burn, so you often want to treat such cards like removals and Fireblast can only act as a finisher. Again, I feel like Chain Lightning would be better.
There's absolutely no reason not to run 4 Mulldrifters. It's a great card for any deck with blue and for Elementals it's even greater.
Scorchwalker is just meh, I'd personnaly cut it.

i would take out Scorchwalker , Hellspark Elemental , Arc Runner , Dynacharge , Blistering Firecat , Ashenmoor Gouger , Guttersnipe cause it is slow and would be a dead draw and same for Madcap Skills

Burn generally wants to win very fast, so some of the high mana creatures should probably go. Instigator Gang Flip, Scorchwalker, Hellrider and Flamerush Rider probably need to go, and really anything above 1 cmc is not ideal.
Lands that come in untapped are ideal, so Dragonskull Summit is your best bet if you dont want to go full out on shocks and fetches.
Running black definitely mainboard your Dismembers in favor of all other removal. They shouldnt have time to play a planeswalker, and most of the time you will pay 4 life to cast it, your life total is pretty irrelevant when youre playing burn.
The biggest thing you want to do is make your playsets, pick the best cards and just use those so that you can be as consistent as possible.
I have a boros burn deck that has gotten pretty strong, take a look if you want http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/boros-burn-suggestions-welcome/
