If you ever win the lottery, replacing mountains with Snow-Covered Mountain and cutting one for Scrying Sheets isnt exactly easy to access but it adds a rare ability to scry into good topdecks in mono red other than Sensei's Divining Top

what about Into the North? I mean just turn 6-8 lands in your deck into snow forests and maybe even add some utility snow lands like Scrying Sheets that lets you scry for forests if you have all your forests as snow forests or even creatures if you add Centaur Omenreader for example!

Your list seems a bit heavy for how much ramp you have. I also think that you're running a lot of cards which could be replaced with much more effective counterparts.
Archetype of Endurance should be something like Mother of Runes instead. Archetype is slow and by the time you've assembled the setup with it and Avacyn, you should have already won. Mo' runes can come down turn 1 and helps Sisay stick until her summon sickness wears off.
Unless your playgroup runs Extraplanar Lens/you're running Scrying Sheets, Into the North is not worth it just for the Arctic Flats. Given that you're using Paradox Engine, Talisman of Unity is a much better card.
You have very little inthe way of creature removal. You're not running Mangara of Corondor, Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile. These are all staple removal pieces in Sisay and not running them is just setting yourself back.
Myojin of Life's Web is a trap card. First off you have to cast it, then to get any value off of it, you have to have a bunch of creatures in your hand, generally meaning that you have to not play stuff for a few turns. This just seems counter productive.
You should be running Avacyn's Pilgrim. One drop dork that fixes your off colour is super good.

Hey, so just comparing my paper list to yours and it's pretty similar but I have some suggestions:
Another really strong card is Cloudstone Curio, this card is usually what gets me over the hump and I think is a better inclusion than Tempt with Vengeance. For 3 mana it basically gives your token producers buyback and generates a lot of value over the course of a game.
Changeling Berserker has won a game or two for me as well, that champion trigger is sweet for double Krenko taps etc.
Last thing - What do you think of Shifting Shadow? I slipped it in my list but haven't had a chance to play it, seems pretty great though.

Hey thanks for the detailed comment! I see what you're saying with some of those cards, the main reason I'm not running Whim of Volrath and similar cards is because, while they're great for making my hate cards more generic, they only change the text, which doesn't affect cards in the same way as the Blind Seer. They were in the deck at some point but were cut to raise the power level, replaced for things like Consecrated Sphinx.
Vodalian Mystic was unfortunately cut for similar reasons.
Paradox Engine is a huge target that might save my staxy artifacts from being targeted but I personally dislike it for this deck, mostly because the lack of infinite combos make it only "alright" in my mind. If I play it and win, it's a wincon but if I play it and nothing much happens except the deck stax harder, which I fear will happen frequently, it will feel dead or unwanted while in hand. Meanwhile, I could use that slot for more silly colour shenanigans. So personal preference but, again, thank you for your well thought out and interesting comment!

Whim of Volrath, Alter Reality, Glamerdye or Swirl the Mists or the like for some of those enchantments - love the green / red hate being put to good use. Wrath of Marit Lage might also work well with them, and Llawan, Cephalid Empress as well.
Since you are running Telepathy, Planeswalker's Mischief might be up your alley. It's slow, and it's random, but it can massively f*ck up an opponent's plan, and it draws hate away from other permanents you might wish to keep.
Vodalian Mystic and Painter's Servant (not sure painter's servant is still banned, need to check that out after this post) will help with the activation costs of your general, as will Training Grounds
Scrying Sheets. If you are running all snow islands, run this to smooth out your draws. that, and Extraplanar Lens will allow you to net extra without giving any to your opponents. I see you're already running it, so props there.
