I can't believe I left out Wizard's Lightning! Thanks for reminding me lol.

The tempo stuff is a good idea, I'll definitely try it out. Thanks!

Wizard's Lightning instead of lava spike?

I don't understand what Pillar of Origins is doing in this deck? I would drop that, all copies of Act of Treason and Thud, then replace them with 4x Wizard's Lightning and 3x Banefire.

then drop Dual Shot, add in Risk Factor because you have no card draw in this deck. Tormenting Voice would be more card draw, or The Flame of Keld could be used with 1-2 cards in hand and then as a finisher.

Why Precision Bolt? Even if you don't have a wizard at least Wizard's Lightning is instant speed.

Thinking of trying out Viashino Pyromancer to make Wizard's Lightning more consistent. Any thoughts as to what I might take out? Or if there's another 1 or 2 drop red wizard I'm missing? Thanks! :)

Yo, i have the same deck and i would recommend whole heartedly Grim Lavamancer. It is a 1/1, but he is a wizard, so he turns on Wizard's Lightning, he is amazing in the longer grindier matchups. Since you do have a lot of discard with Faithless Looting and The Flame of Keld so you almost always have ammo for Grim.

And actually Flame Jab, i know it looks super janky but honestly it is crazy. Again works with discard and gets more dmg (even if it is one). The nice thing about this is you can keep casting it since it does not exile it. It has closed games with me but i only run 1 copy. Might take it out but i really like it.

My gut reaction is that your weakest cards are Fanatical Firebrand, Legion Warboss, and Wizard's Lightning. The Firebrand is a 1/1 that in the late game might ping your opponent. The Warboss is just going to create 1/1s that die in combat immediately (though might be a good card against control decks in the side board), and will likely trade if it ever attacks. Without a critical mass of wizards, Wizard's Lightning is just an Open Fire, which isn't very impressive.

Electrify, Radiating Lightning, and Doublecast aren't going to be that good for you. Bombard and Spit Flame are both superior to Electrify, but even then, they aren't that good. Radiating Lightning is going to, most of the time, bolt your opponent, ping all their creatures, and perhaps kill 1 of them. For 4 mana, that is not enough. Radiating Lightning is probably at its best against token decks, but Fiery Cannonade is the better card in mono-red for that. Doublecast needs another spell to work, and even then, that is probably not enough to justify it in your side board.

This deck is looks like its in the "Is it a goblin deck or is it a burn deck?" zone. I would be more inclined to lean into the burn aspect, and build something like the following:
