Okay, this is coming from a burn player with years of incredible experience (about 0.5 of them actually) playing budget burn in modern, so don't expect my suggestions to be amazing or anything. You have been warned.
1) If you can afford them, 4x Goblin Guide and at least 2x Vexing Devil are must-haves. But do not worry if you cannot, some other creatures might help. Keldon Marauders is one great go-to plan for budget, with the capability of dealing 5 damage with at least 2 guaranteed.
2) Spells are the most important part of budget burn, so choose wisely. Players have different favorites when it comes to burn spells other than the bolts (3 damage). Thunderous Wrath is my personal favorite. Although you only get its miracle cost like 15% of the time, it's still really fun to play. Browbeat can be a very powerful threat that most amateurs don't know how to deal with. Experienced players will almost always choose to take 5 rather than have you draw 3 because of the risk of you getting >=2 bolts is too high. Otherwise, it's a 3 mana 5 dmg card which is fine (even better when your opponent is <5 health).
3) Searing Blaze is way better than Searing Blood and worth it. The keywords being 'damage to target player' and 'when this creature dies'. When you have a land in your hand and your opponent is playing late game creatures (toughness <3) or has a life total of 3 life left (very common scenario in fact (okay maybe that's just me)), do you want the blaze or the blood? Searing Blood becomes useless late, while Searing Blaze keeps its value.
Hope this helps!

Great. Now this needs Gideon's Intervention (Wizards, stahp. More than one planeswalker exists in this world you know, print more of the discreet ones (No, Nissa does not count as a discreet character!)).
