That's exactly it actually. RUG Delver also plays a little more like a midrange deck compared to UR Tempo. It could work, but I would probably have to lose the Vedalken Shackles in favor of more spells to trigger Young Pyromancer and Delver of Secrets  Flip

Due to the large number of instants in your deck, I would say that Guttersnipe > Young Pyromancer . After all, the point is to get opponent's life to 0 as fast as possible (this is a burn deck, not an aggro: i.e. I need a bunch of tiny 1/1 token creatures...). It's imo, you are going to do what's best for you. I am just saying, you aer blurring between aggro & burn a little, and it may be diluting your burn potential.

How has this deck played for you?

I put him on my sideboard. I also have Skullcrack for preventing damage. Maybe a couple more similar cards would be nice. My problem is not knowing what I should get rid of for Guttersnipe consistently. I could forsee replacing any of Young Pyromancer , Goblin Rabblemaster or Chandra's Phoenix but they add some nice value to the deck.

razorsoldier exactly! I do plan on keeping with Guttersnipe . He works a lot better in this deck than Young Pyromancer would.

Young Pyromancer works better in a tempo than in a burn so you should keep Guttersnipe .

Wait, Young Pyromancer is a she? I really don't see that connection there aeonstoremyliver. The artists of magic really like making something feminine obviously feminine.

I'm not sure you want to have Anger of the Gods in your main board since it kills most of your creatures, maybe try moving them to the sideboard in place of the Mizzium Mortars . Molten Birth also seems a bit slow for modern. Ball Lightning also seems like most of the time it's going to get killed before it does damage.

So here's what I'd do. Take those out and put in 4x Young Pyromancer , 4x Lava Spike and 3x Rift Bolt /Shard Volley . that gives you more ways to get elementals, and more of a burn package to make up for most of your creatures killing themselves.

for your sideboard, Ingot Chewer could be good as an artifact removal spell you can tutor with Flamekin Harbinger and you'd probably also want some Skullcrack for that pesky lifegain.
