No red deck is really complete without a full set of Lightning Bolts. You just don't get it better than 3 damage for 1 mana, to any target at almost any time (it is exactly as Lightning Strike, but at half cost).

Your creatures belong in two different decks: One that goes wide, with a lot creatures that you then buff (Memnite and Signal Pest) and one that burns opponent to death (Guttersnipe and Spark Elemental). Since these two plans actually are rather different, drawing a couple of cards from both means that you can't carry out either of them. If you want to go wide, you need more smaller creatures or tokens (Dragon Fodder and Mogg War Marshal are good cards for this strategy). Tyrant of Discord has no business at all being in a deck with only 20 lands, since you plan on the game being over long before turn 14, which is when you'd be most likely to play it.

I've never really liked Guttersnipe, since it's a 3 mana creatures, that doesn't do anything on its own... and it belongs in a fast deck. That is, a fast deck where you don't mind spending your 3rd turn just playing a rather small creature, and not doing anything else. Of course you could wait until you have some more mana, so you could play some spells in the same turn... but what are you then doing until then? My guess is, that you'd then just end up playing the very same spells that you'd otherwise want to use for triggering Guttersnipe, and when you finally play it, you are more or less empty-handed. But if it has to be, you should play "free" spells, like Mutagenic Growth and Gut Shot... and since you'd then be playing free spells anyway, you might as well pick up the best prowess creature for fast deck - Monastery Swiftspear - and maybe you could get some real value out of Abbot of Keral Keep, since it both has prowess and gives you a card.

Anyway, you should probably make up your mind in regards to creatures, and stick to one plan.

Shrine of Burning Rage also likes free spells, but only as long as they are red... I'm not too happy having 4 of it in a deck. If there's one on the opening hand, it's fine, but drawing it later is a really under-powered draw. Perhaps it's better in decks, that can get rid of it - like if you played a looter (you know - "draw a card-discard a card") of some kind.

My personal experience with Omnath is land ramp is better than mana dorks. This is mostly because late game an Elvish Mystic is pretty much worthless, while a Rampant Growth can be huge with Omnath on the field.
Tempt with Vengeance and Boundless Realms will win you games. I don't know of any infinite combos off the top of my head.
Elementals I like: Malignus, Tyrant of Discord, Incandescent Soulstoke, and Rubblehulk. Although not an elemental, I also like Rakka Mar.
The only other suggestion I would have is Basilisk Collar. It turns your sac outlets into board wipes and extra life for you.
Good Luck!

Mycosynthlithium, let me know which deck plays out better.

Balaroth, I use to run both cards in a previous version. I think I cut Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger for Rampaging Baloths for other ways to produce large amounts of tokens, in case Omnath was being shutdown. I cut Green Sun's Zenith for Worldly Tutor to get a turn 2 Lotus Cobra out, so I can get an early turn Omnath.

NoNeedToBragoBoutIt, I use to run Chandra's Ignition, but cut it for Descent of the Dragons to give myself some 4/4 fliers for protection from the unfriendly skies.

feyn_do_alduin, If only Tyrant of Discord was all opponents rather than target opponent then it would be an auto-include for me.

Crawarc, I would include both Mind's Eye and Seer's Sundial if you have the room for both. The more draw engine cards you have the better for Omnath. I would advise against cutting Elemental Bond, it is such an easy card to abuse draw from with the many elemental tokens being produced.
