I have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.
Ramp: Drop all 4x rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Arcane Signet, Pentad Prism, Basalt Monolith, Lotus Petal, and Coalition Relic are your best budget(ish) mana rock options you don't already run. Also consider Generator Servant and Crystal Vein.
Pillow Fort: Smoke is amazing here.
Auto Haste: Dragon Breath will automatically enchant Narset every time you recast her.
PW: Ral Zarek is handy for his untap ability (Strionic Resonator is easily my favorite target) and his ult is pretty easy to hit for 2-3 extra turns.
Feel free to check out my list for more ideas, it's one of the top rated Narset lists on this site. It's not budget friendly as a whole but still plenty of options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Fumiko the Lowblood . Creates an interesting dynamic on the board every time your commander is out. Lots of neat effects to pair it with, whether you go for untap restrictions like Smoke or Static Orb , or just want to cause games to end quickly with things like Furnace of Rath
Also a big fan of Horobi, Death's Wail . Pack it full of every single death black effect you can find, like Death Match Death Pits of Rath , Mindslicer Pestilence and whatever else you can find. You'll win far more games than you imagine as you create a board state so toxic no one can develop properly. You don't even need free target effects, but it helps.
Kaervek the Merciless is another general that allows some unique building imo. Stuff yourself full of board wipes like Pyroclasm Anger of the Gods Toxic Deluge Earthquake and similar to keep the board clear while you build up to 7 mana. Stuff your deck full of fatties who can survive small red sweeper effects, and punish players with the Kaervek trigger and your fatties.
For a serious competitive answer, look at Tasigur, the Golden Fang . Highly political deck with a strong color identity, and lots of different infinite combos available as your means of winning. The GY recursion allows you to play control in a format that is traditionally hard to play control in.

Hey, nice overall concept, but I think you can be doing a lot more slugging :)
Harsh Mentor , Zo-Zu the Punisher , Ankh of Mishra , Spellshock can be more repeatable damage to your opponents and these cards are good in a large variety of deck matchups. Spellshock and Mentor can alone shut down infinite combos. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell makes Mogis do 4 damage instead of 2 each turn and he's good with other sources of damage especially Manabarbs since 3 damage is a lot more than 1 damage. Torbran and Loyal Subordinate with Mogis can increase the bleeding of your opponents.
Cards also can do damage to you which is good draw with Vilis, Broker of Blood and Vilis is busted with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth . Sire Of Insanity can be a backbreaking effect in multiplayer Commander and it goes with the idea of gaining turns to bleed out your opponents. Sire is good with Bloodchief Ascension . Vilis and Sire are worth including a small reanimation package with some enablers to cheat them onto the battlefield.
Smoke is an underrated disruptive card for red. Not only is good to stop lots of attackers, but also mana dorks since an opponent can only untap one of them.
Good luck with your deck.

The main thing you'll want to do if you decide to increase this decks competitiveness is increase the amount of ramp you have by a LOT. A turn 3-4 Narset should be the goal.
Don't go with the Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus you have in your maybeboard though... stick to ramp that costs or less ( is ok if it adds more than 1 mana). Lotus Petal , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , Boros Signet , Azorius Signet , Izzet Signet , Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , Coalition Relic , Basalt Monolith , and Worn Powerstone are all great mana rocks here that won't break the bank. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are excellent here also.
Smoke is really good in Narset, especially with your Superfriends subtheme.
Aqueous Form allows you to Scry before Narset's trigger so you can dig 5 cards deep while making her unblockable.
Long-Term Plans is an excellent budget tutor here to set up a Narset attack.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's dedicated extra turns/combats and is very optimized. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Suns_Champion, it's perfect. I think that there really is no other way to build this. I think you went a tad bit to light in removal. Mostly because of cards like Ghostly Prison , Prison Term , Pramikon, Sky Rampart and other cards that can keep you from attacking. Maybe add 4 more removal cards. Like Cleansing Nova to get all the artifacts and enchantments stopping you. Maybe add Chaos Warp , maybe add Smoke since you will only be attacking with one creature anyway. Maybe add Silent Arbiter , maybe add Abrade , maybe add Crush Contraband

Depending on how many creatures you end up running and your meta, Smoke can be amazing.
If you're looking for ideas in these colors I'd look up Queen Marchesa lists. They're usually pillowfort, lots of wraths, and stax(ish).

Consider replacing your big beefer stuff with more small utility stuff and upping the wipes. Small red creature blasts like Pyroclasm Whipflare and Sweltering Suns will massively slow down any decks relying on dorks to supply mana and kill weak commanders. I'd also recommend peeking Open the Armory for some nice early tutors, and Sigarda's Aid + Hammer of Nazahn for free equips. Additional pieces to slow other decks will help you leverage more swings, so consider slowdown pieces like Smoke Tangle Wire Eidolon of Rhetoric Oppression Trinisphere .
I'd cut almost all your creatures 5 CMC or above except possibly Avacyn and Massacre wurm and Aurelia.
