i think Mindwrack Liege is too expensive for a deck with only 22 lands. plus its the only multi-colored creature in the deck, so you're payin 6 mana for just a +1/+1 boost. i also think you need more instants/sorceries for your Thing in the Ice Flip/ Bedlam Reveler . and you definitely want fetchlands if you're using Scourge Wolf . the way your deck is now, its actually impossible to get delirium online unless your opponent uses land destruction against you. if you added black you could try Hunted Horror . just save it until right before Thing in the Ice Flip would transform to negate the downside.

Ok, some cards that will really help.
If you want a red 2 drop that pumps your creatures permanently, Curse of Stalked Prey is great.
The traditional efficient double strike tools are Assault Strobe and Temur Battle Rage, with dipping into R/W for Boros Charm, which means that double strike on creatures themselves will always be a good pick for budget lists.
In mono red, I'd look to support a more 'go wide' creatures strat with some permanent buffs and haste (Expedite/Crimson Wisps) with a sideboard designed to remove answers (plans for Ensnaring Bridge, Ghostly Prison, tanky creatures.)

Hey friend. I agree that you're better off with Red in your board, considering Cathartic Reunion and Insolent Neonate see play in Tier 2 Modern Dredge lists... In fact, considering your revisions, the non-creature suite looks pretty spot-on. Maybe cut some noncreature spells in your SB for creatures with similar effects (Fairgrounds Warden over Cast Out, for example), and maybe Haunted Dead as an additional on-theme discard engine.
Hm. Depends on how you want to play this. You can go midrange or aggro, but probably not both.
I'm personally an enormous fan of Combustible Gearhulk, especially in a deck like this with about 20% of your deck at 4 CMC=damage or higher, that ALSO doesn't mind whether the cards go to grave or to hand (since you'll just discard them). If you go this route, I'd cut all your non-Neonate creatures below CMC 4-5. You're wanting to power out the Gift until T4, and after T4 it literally doesn't matter how much your discarded cards cost, 'cuz it's a free "gift". Things that come to mind are Angel of Deliverance, Emeria Shepherd, Lightning Runner, Noosegraf Mob (which is a T5 9/9...), Regal Caracal in the SB to stabilize against aggro, Tree of Perdition (which is cute, but not bad...). Just pick your favorite.
On the other hand, you could go more aggressive, and only cast GPG late-game when you are needing more fuel. In that case, Scourge Wolf, Thraben Inspector, Fairgrounds Warden, Gifted Aetherborn, Aerial Responder, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Bomat Courier, Bloodrage Brawler are at their best, where you get to cast them twice, and the second time, they're beefy.
Either way, I'd cut Cataclysmic Gearhulk, because you can't get your tokens back, and I'd cut the creatures with the Eternalize mechanic (since they're made "balanced" with Eternalize already, they're designed to not be broken with GPG, unlike the aforementioned strategies).
Hope that helps! Again, mention me if I can be helpful to you.

I like the idea of this deck, but I don't know if you're taking full advantage of some of the cards. Scourge Wolf is a pretty decent card on its own, but it gets even better with delirium, and I don't know if you are able to make that happen easily. Also you aren't discarding a lot, so Geralf's Masterpiece will not very often be a very big creature because of this. I personally don't really like Stitched Mangler and think it's kind of a bad card in constructed. I also don't think you have enough instants and sorceries to make the best use of Thing in the Ice Flip as it will not get flipped when you will need it to. I like the idea of using it to boardwipe and be able to keep all of your creatures, but I might look more into taking out some of the creatures that don't do a lot and putting more spells in to use Thing in the Ice Flip and even Ingenious Skaab better. Those are just my thoughts use them as you'd like and if you have any questions let me know.

OK, interesting setup, looking to make use of going wide with power boosts and double strike. I can work with that. You're siting really high on the curve for modern aggro- most of the time 5/6 drops only get cast in control/ramp . They're awesome cards, don't get me wrong, but I'm not feeling them here.
If you want to go all in on the Boros Swiftblade strategy, you could do worse than run some Fencing Ace, Scourge Wolf and Viashino Slaughtermaster to really all-in on the strategy, backed by solid lifegain and protection (if you want to draw the game out) or Titan's Strength/Brute Force/Apostle's Blessing type voltron style. Usually the latter style is reliant on Temur Charm/Boros Charm to double strike out and is outperformed by infect, so I'll focus on the former, test a little and see if I can put together a list for you.

I found a gem for you, and i don't know why it took us this long to find it, Scourge Wolf.

Scourge Wolf mainboard I mean. Seems like you could pretty easily achieve delirium.
