Braid of Fire is a little specific, but you could toss a Desperate Ritual on an Isochron Scepter

it would be a little hard to get both of these cards out,and it would take a little time to get going but you could use Skirk Prospector and Krenko, Mob Boss.

If I were you I would look up a storm deck. Storm makes stupid amounts of mana super fast. Definitely add Simian Spirit Guide, Runaway Steam-Kin, and Pyromancer Ascension.

Also, now that I’ve had more time to think, I would add Curse of Opulence for mana, Platinum Emperion to protect you from yourself, and Darksteel Plate to protect him and ashling. Anything from Ixalan that makes treasure might be good too.

Oh, and if you do something like use Pyromancer's Goggles on like a Rite of Flame, you'll copy the card and net a ton of mana.

Specifically, since only one ROF is in the graveyard when it resolves, you'll net 6x for just spending 1x

Now, if you do something insanely stupid like... oh I don't know...

Tap a Pyromancer's Goggles and float the to cast Rite of Flame, copy it, and before either one resolves you tap two lands and Reverberate one of your ROFs you'll net...


9 mana for tapping two Mountains? Green would be GREEN with envy.

Thermopod may be alright if you have a lot of small creatures/tokens.

red stuff has been mentioned, but Doubling Cube is a good way to get lethal mana with rituals

lots of colorless mana combos like:

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth

Voltaic Construct + Metalworker

Umbral Mantle + Metalworker

Ashnod's Altar/Krark-Clan Ironworks + Myr Battlesphere (or any other creature that spawns 2 or more tokens, like Krenko, Mob Boss) + Nim Deathmantle

Gemstone Array converts to red

also if you're running a lot of the same creature, Mana Echoes can generate absurd colorless that can also be converted to red
