Thanks for the card suggestion and the upvote!
I gotta say this one cool card design, might have to change the wording a bit (since I need to read into the ability) but I really do like it!

Since you asked me for help, I will give you what I can.
Card choices seem poor at the moment, when building aggressive decks, you should cut out cards that cost 4cmc or above, as they are not aggressive and will clunk up your hand, regardless of how good they are. Also, cards like Blessed Alliance and Djeru's Resolve could be replaced with better cards.
Land count. Any aggressive deck wants to play 19-21 lands in total, cutting the cmc down with the lands will give you fast power and efficiency, which is needed for a successful aggro deck.
Honestly, there is currently a great mono-red aggro deck that you could easily merge this towards, it is very cheap and has a full article here Two Tix Red Link
If you need anymore help let me know.

Thanks for the upvote!
I also really like the idea behind your suggested card, and have decided to add it under the created by users folder, thanks for contributing!

I love mardu decks, so +1 from me. But I definitely have some suggestions.
This deck seems to currently have a very confused model, on the one hand, you have Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor, two cards which can be very powerful given the correct deck, and deck strategies. You also hae cards like Kalitas, and Archangel, which do well in the more top-down model version of this type of deck. However, a blend of these types of decks doesn't really work, as one of them wants to be a ground pounding midrange deck which could run the Platinum Emperion combo with Madcap Experiment as has been done with cards like Nahiri, the Harbinger, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. You really should decide on one model or the other, and if you'd like further help with that feel free to ask.
You do not run enough discard spells. Inquisition of Kozilek AND Thoughtseize are needed for decks that do not run blue in order to have a chance to beat combo decks, since you have no real combos yourself at the moment.
More fetchlands. Whoever said in the comments you can only look for basic lands does not understand how fetchlands work, as you can search for any land matching the land type designated, regardless if it's a basic or not. For decks that want to play 3 or more colors consistently, you need to increase the number of fetch and shocklands available in your deck, checklands are very popular and go with these shocks to make the manabase less painful. (Dragonskull Summit is a good example of a checkland.)
Card Choices. Why is archangel even in this deck? Youdont have nearly enough effect for the card to be useful and do not play an infinite combo with it such as SpikeFeeder I'd suggest Baneslayer Angel or simply moving Gideon to the mainboard.

Thanks for the upvotes!
Negative upvotes on a deck signify that fake accounts have upvoted the deck, and thus the votes turned negative.

Also, I'd cut a land to play Sea Gate Wreckage, as often Tron loses because you just draw a land when you really need a finisher.

I like the concept, so +1. I have some suggestions.
Perilous Vault is the closest thing you can get to Oblivion Stone without paying an arm and a leg, and would probably work out great as a one-of in the mainboard. But if not it's great for sideboards too against many of the decks this deck can struggle against.
I'd play Nature's Claim over Naturalize in the sideboard. The 4 life may seem like a drawback, but you are playing tron, which is the best deck in the format at top-decking finishers, which means 4 life doesn't really matter in the long run. The real reason is so you can get rid of cards like Stony Silence when you are on the draw, and not have to worry about them.
Since Platinum Angel is only about $3, I think it would make a great one-of addition to the mainboard since it requires your opponents to deal with it. Also, Thopter Assembly is great at gumming up the board with Flyers.
I don't know if its needed, but Firespout as the traditional sweeper played in tron, and its still very cheap.
Karplusan Forest, got a needed reprint and is now only $2.5, although I'm unsure if you need it with your current set up.
Banefire is 40 cents more expensive then blaze, and is uncounterable if X is 5 or more.

Fake accounts upvoting the deck causes this problem.

First off, thanks for the upvote! This deck is close to getting positive again!
With tron decks that play 4 Chalice of the Void being one of the best decks in the format, lantern is pretty dead online, and is no longer played at my LGS,
Recall might seem like an okay choice, but in reality, I already have better options. Because for recall to be any good, there needs to be a board of artifacts on the board, which means my opponents deck has been working great. The other issue with recall is that I need to top-deck it for it to be useful most of the time, and lantern usually does a good job of making sure that doesn't happen.
The other main reason I don't like it is because it is just a one turn deal, and affinity already scoops to wraths and Spell Snare on important threats.
It honestly comes down to both metagame and sideboard slots, but I can definitely see where you are coming from!
