Rift Bolt , Shard Volley , Light Up the Stage , Skullcrack are all good spells. Monastery Swiftspear is an amazing creature. Since you're on a budget, you should consider a Needle Drop + Thunderous Wrath package. If you leave 2 mana open, and your opponent cracks a fetchland on their turn, then you can play Needle Drop and have a chance at drawing Thunderous Wrath . Wrath is bad your opening hand, but with the London mulligan, that's less of an issue these days. Eidolon of the Great Revel is absolutely amazing, but it's a little bit expensive. If you can't afford it, then Hellspark Elemental is a very good alternative.

I'd cut the goblins and Goblin Grenade . If you want to play goblins, that's a different deck, and I don't think that adding them to the burn deck helps. Browbeat isn't very good. Incinerate is also real bad.

How strict is the budget? And how casual?

You can make a pretty decent burn deck for around $40, if you try to keep it fast and low to the ground, by dropping things like Viashino Pyromancer and Guttersnipe , and adding Soul-Scar Mage and / or Monastery Swiftspear

An upside to playing the prowess 1-drops is it gives you reliable access to a cheap burn spell called Wild Slash which is very good if you can reliably turn it on. Especially alongside Kiln Fiend , that should be easy to do.

I'd also suggest dropping Volcanic Fallout in favour of Exquisite Firecraft , losing the instant speed can be a minor downside, however, with two in the deck, and it costing 3 mana anyway, Firecraft will work more like a finisher, hitting your opponent for 4 instead of 2, and possibly finishing them off. It is uncounterable with spell mastery, which should be pretty easy to turn on.

Also, with 20 lands, it might be worth considering Shard Volley , turn your extra lands into 4 damage.

I could drop Grim Lavamancer to 1 but I like the card and its certain interactions like removing Scavenging Ooze creature targets from my graveyard or enabling spectacle.

Having an extra Shard Volley would be cool but I'm only running 18 lands so its a double edge sword or perhaps Thunderous Wrath but it's a dead opener or if flipped with Light Up the Stage . I can't really think of any other good 1 drop burn spells, let me know if you have any ideas.

Switching Grim Lavamancer for Eidolon of the Great Revel is probably the best scenario since it's such a good card in modern, but too often do I find myself in a position where I'm racing my opponent and if you end up on the draw game 1 you won't be able to cast it. I used to run only 2 but felt lacking but so far have been pretty happy with 3, I almost always move them to sideboard if I'm on the draw and if on the play I throw out Light Up the Stage and use 4 Eidolon of the Great Revel since the interaction beetwen the two is not good at all.

guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.

some shock replacements include:

Wild Slash

Flame Slash

Searing Blaze

Skullcrack

Shard Volley

Deflecting Palm

Collateral Damage

Gut Shot

Molten Rain

Chained to the Rocks

guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks

Young Pyromancer

Firebrand Archer

Kiln Fiend

Goblin Arsonist / Goblin Grenade

Mogg Fanatic

Keldon Marauders

Seeker of the Way

Soul-Scar Mage

Abbot of Keral Keep

sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like

Fragmentize

Wear / Tear

Smash to Smithereens

or even just the very basics in Smelt and Demystify

for example: vs burn on the draw. it is best if i can take out Eidolon of the Great Revel and Forked Bolt . if i take out Shard Volley then i will only have Dragon's Claw to put in. Molten Rain is not bad against multicolor burn, but it is better on the play. maybe i should side in Smash to Smithereens to counter possible Dragon's Claw and Ensnaring Bridge .. 3d chess doe

etron is pretty even, and depends on their hand.. all i can sideboard right now against it is Shard Volley and Smash to Smithereens in and Eidolon of the Great Revel and Forked Bolt out. hard to say what is that best thing to do about this matchup.. Chalice of the Void stops Shard Volley unless i get Smash to Smithereens .. no doubt Molten Rain would help. maybe i can take Shard Volley out of the sideboard. it is there for matches where i have more cards i want to take out of the mainboard, and nothing else to put in.

after some testing I put 4 Skewer the Critics in. after some research i decided to take Skullcrack out for now. it is a favorite of mine but the arguments against it are strong. I added Relic of Progenitus to the sideboard because it is useful against many common decks, though i am not totally sold. I moved Shard Volley to the sideboard as a replacement for bad cards depending on the match up. I filled the main board with Viashino Pyromancer .
