I'll be honest with you, because it's currently 2:50 in the morning and I feel like being candid. Also, apologies in advance if I sound like a total dick. I promise I'm mostly a nice person, but again, 2:50.
The deck isn't great. Here's why.
Firstly, there is no versatility. Naya burn, the buniest of all burn decks (feel the burn), still has room to run cards that interact with the opponent. This deck doesn't do that. Yeah, you can bolt creatures, but once you do that you've basically accepted defeat, as you really do need to burn face the whole game to have any chance of winning with this deck. Trust me, I'm a semi-okay magic player.
Also, wtf bro (or bra, depending on your gender)? Why are you not running Blood Moon or Magus of the Moon? You have a mono-red deck, play those cards. I know you're going budget, but still. If your opponents just can't cast spells, you basically win.
If I were you, I would ditch the idea of 33 lands and Seismic Assault for something a bit more consistent and powerful. I know you don't want to sell a kidney to pay for this deck, so here are some viable budget options for a mono-red burn deck. Goblin Grenade Monastery Swiftspear Reckless Abandon Thunderous Wrath (only one) Massive Raid Eidolon of the Great Revel Reckless Bushwhacker Goblin Bushwhacker Stoke the Flames Goblin Piledriver (I have a thing for goblins). Some of these cards are great, some are meh, all are red, so hey, there's that.
I hope I was at least semi-helpful, and intelligent sounding, and to the point. Have fun with the deck, or don't, you live your life.

LOL thanks for the candid commentary Stephencliffe! I realize that most wouldn't appreciate it, but I actually do! This is my first foray into Modern during my recent MTG resurrection, so I don't know/remember all of the cards available etc. I played in the late 90s, took off for a while, then played in the early 2000s for a year or 2, then took off for more than decade until SOI, and have been basically only been playing Standard since SOI. I will deffo take a look at all of your suggestions! I do remember Blood Moon, that's probably a definite addition if I decide to put out the money.
