Good burn deck. Maybe take out the four Soul-Scar Mage for Seal of Fire or Mishra's Bauble because of the Lurrus of the Dream-Den.

I disagree about Lightning Helix not being played in boros burn

I disagree about Rift Bolt being a bad spell.

Reference: google boros burn or boros prowess those cards are played 4x of

I don't like the Blistercoil Weird.

Reference: as above, but this card isn't played at all

I will think about including 4x Soul-Scar Mage since I see it in some lists.

Other than that the suggestions are great and thanks for them.

EDIT: I was being daft last night exclude Manamorphose as it is a two color deck Also if you are going for budget forget about Mishra's Bauble Keep 2xKiln Fiend, if you really think you'll get yo re-cast him with Lurrus later on, it is a good card

Now for the changes:

Remove 2xShrine of Burning Rage you need to cast spells that do something every turn with this deck, its is non negotiable. Add 2x Lava Dart

Remove 2xKiln Fiend add 2xBlistercoil Weird

Remove 2x Forked Bolt and just add the 2 Burst Lightning from the sideboard, its a great top deck at turn 5 in this deck.

Remove 4x Rift Bolt it is the most inconsistent burn spell and you will often remove it after every game 1 add 4x Soul-Scar Mage

Lightning Helix doesnt often play in the prowess deck because it is 2 mana but its such a cool card and its great in mirror match ups

you will need to change the mana base to 4x sunbaked canyon 3x sacred foundry 4x Arid Mesa 1x wooded foothills and 3x inspiring vantage 3x mountain

Lava dart is invaluable in this deck as you can trigger prowess 4 times with 2 mountains

your call if you want to remove 2x skewer for an extra 2

You can now play an extra 2 spells, ideally with this deck it should be Mishra's Bauble

Hope this helps!

Creatures are your win condition, you need to have at least 10

On the other hand Kiln Fiend is a big hitter but dies easily for the 2 mana, it is NOT a bad choice though, red prowess has always run this

Include 4x Soul-Scar Mage and 2x Spellgorger Weird

The deck only needs 18 -19 lands

With Lurrus Seal of Fire is also great

Where is Mishra's Bauble?

Where is Manamorphose?

Also with the mix I just proposed maybe include Fight as One although that would be less competitive more for fun (you could exxclude 2 boros charm and put in 2 of these for example)

You need 3x Kor Firewalker in your SB

hope this helps!

Soul-Scar Mage

lets you run direct damage like Lightning Bolt or repeatable damage like Sorcerer's Wand or Thornbite Staff

Soul-Scar Mage could be interesting with pingers.

While this seems like a great pick against most of the metagame, It really doesn't do anything against control decks, which are a sizeable chunk of the tier builds. That being said, the deck needs 1-drops to reach it's full potential. Something to play turn 1 against aggro. I like Authority of the Consuls here. Also, Soul-Scar Mage notably works nicely with Deafening Clarion.
