I'll admit that I'm not well versed in piloting control decks, but I'm pretty sure that dropping to 20 lands is not a good plan. I love Boros to pieces but we all know how bad RW is at drawing cards, which will magnify missing a land drop beyond reason. Especially when considering the meta contains turn 4 Ulamogs and Zombie swarms. The few control builds that I piloted ran the land creatures (like your Needle Spires) on top of the regular lands or the deck had ways to cheat mana costs.
The reason I recommended dropping Wrangle is that it's a sorcery with conditional targeting, meaning that you don't want to draw it in some cases.
As for Renewed Faith, I'm guessing it will be your main draw spell. The bonus of gain 2 life could help to sustain until you can line up one of your Expertise chains or get Gideon into play. So if you feel that you need to keep them in I can understand the thought process.
What I would anticipate is needing a creature under your control that you don't mind flinging, Glory-Bound Initiate is a good example. There is always the possibility that your opponent will not have a creature worth taking and then flinging. On top of that, without having a full hand the likeliness of having an expertise and a card to cast for free decreases drastically. Using some sort of wheel ability may be in order, cards like Bedlam Reveler, Chandra, Flamecaller, Collective Defiance, or Nahiri, the Harbinger could facilitate a hand refresh.
I hope you find something that I've mentioned useful tcoplayer! My ramblings can sometimes miss their mark.

What about other cards that would utilize Fling, such as Kari Zev's Expertise? This way you don't have multiple Flings in your hand wasting space, and you can get around your opponent's indestructible or high-toughness creatures.
Also, Turn Aside would be useful to cheaply counter anything that tries to interrupt your combo.

After playing it for three weeks now, I've had a couple realizations:
2) I'm struggling to find a good 4-drop finisher in red and black right now. Fleetwheel Cruiser is nice the turn it comes down, but after that you have to give up another attaching creature just to swing with it. Tried Skyship Stalker as well but it's just too expensive at 5 mana for a 3/3 flying haste.

Can't you just cast Seize the Day on your second main phase after attacking targetting Zada, Hedron Grinder copy and untap, swing again with your first extra combat then on your extra main cast Wrangle, Act of Treason,Besmirch,Harness by Force,Hijack,Kari Zev's Expertise,Mark of Mutiny,Threaten,Traitorous Blood,Unwilling Recruit,Lose Calm,Malevolent Whispers,Portent of Betrayal,Temporary Insanity,or Traitorous Instinct on Zada, Hedron Grinder then copy and untap all your creatures move to the next combat phase Ad Nauseam. Or you could Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker with Zealous Conscripts to infinite swing each combat. Or have Sword of Feast and Famine on a creature when it hit and combo off with cantrip copies on Zada into draw and more untap. Then if you're going with the infinite combat should probably put in Aggravated Assault as another infinite combat option, though with all the card draw you'll get it relatively quickly not even putting into consideration Past in Flames to cast those already cast untap spells again from the graveyard. Should be enough untap + combat phases to kill everyone. Though this seems like a lot of mana with a spliced Desperate Ritual onto Blazing Shoal you should get three red mana per creature if for some reason you weren't able to equip Sword of Feast and Famine. All of this relies on having the cards but cantrip draw shouldn't be a problem. Maybe this would work , haven't done the math, but it's a possibility.
