I see you are running mono red. Have you put any thought into converting it into a R/G deck? Doing so would allow you to run Increasing Savagery (and dont forget it has flashback for late game) allowing you to actually smash face with slumbering dragon by turn 3 on your own without your opponent attacking you, using a mana ramp such as Farseek and Arbor Elf both of which aren't going out of rotation in October. Also, running R/G allows you to use the traditional Huntmaster of the Fells Flip which is a triple threat putting out a creature, giving you life, and burning your opponent & their creature(s) for 2. Also it lets you eliminate your Volt Charge so you don't have any phyrexia cards nor rely on proliferate.
As for the rest of your deck, im personally not too fond of the discard to draw nor the mono red mana ramp cards like Geosurge but i do like the removal you have chosen such as Pillar of Flame . I think if you tweak your deck a bit and make it R/G you will have more consistency. As for a solution to draw i like the green card Abundant Growth from the Avacyn set, which also helps with the mana curve. If you don't wanna switch the deck idea around i would suggest tossing in Cavern of Souls naming Dragons because nobody wants to waste 7 mana on a dragon for it to get countered by a Mana Leak

I think you should splash green, just for Increasing Savagery . Also I think you will need more land, like 24 or so.
