Cuts from the Sideboard listed cards:
Prismatic Geoscope: Running 18 basics means you might not always get 3 mana from it, more like 2. Eitherway I feel it's bad as a rock and lackluster as a cage target.
25 cards I'll suggest for <15$ (EDHREC TCGPLAYER listed prices, may be higher or lower):
Cephalid Inkshrouder: Discard which doesn't matter to make shrouded Mairsil? Hell yeah. (Price: 0.29)
Soliton: Another U: untap is solid. (Price: 0.10)
Forbidden Alchemy: Basically a draw 4 most of the time for 3 mana and can be flashed back if you discard it or mill it another way. (Price: 0.11)
Pestilent Souleater: Can be a backup win con with a card or two that can also pump. (Price: 0.10)
Twisted Abomination: Get a land with it then give Mairsil regenerate for a black when his commander tax is too high. Can never have too much protection when the commander is the whole gameplan. (Price: 0.03)
Magus of the Bazaar: Draw 5 for tap on Mairsil. What's not to like? (Price: .46)
Etherium-Horn Sorcerer: 3 To replay Mairsil isn't bad. Also can just be a cascade card if need be. (Price: 0.15)
Cinderhaze Wretch: Untap affect + can be used to disrupt enemies. Also can be used on yourself if you really want for some weird reason? (Price 0.26)
Dreamscape Artist: Discard isn't a downside, and it ramps. Can be put on Mairsil as well if need be. (Price: 0.26)
Vector Asp: B: infect is very strong. Especially with following card. (Price: 0.20)
Spikeshot Elder: This plus infect is a gross combo. Even without R to deal 4 to any target is strong, better than lightning bolt! (Price: 0.21)
Grinning Ignus: A way to bounce Mairsil that's ALSO ramp. Pays for a commander tax! (Price: 0.16)
Frantic Search: Free loot isn't ever bad. Instant speed too. (Price 0.47)
Sinister Sabotage: You don't have much interaction. These next 3 are just interactive pieces to stop your opponents from racing you. Sinister is a good counter that also can basically draw a card with Surveil. (Price: 0.12)
Terminate: No regen for them! Instant speed kill. Nice. (Price: 0.44)
Arcane Denial: Great counterspell that's not mana intensive. (Price: 0.46)
Perplex: Either a counter, makes an opponent lose their hand, or you can transmute to tutor for a 3 drop such as Rings or Commander's Sphere. Very versatile. (Price: 1.24)
AEtherize: Bounce all attackers is a good way to protect yourself, since you already have many ways to protect Mairsil. (Price: 0.23)
Whispering Madness: Wheel that can be repeated. With GY synergies it's amazing. 10/10 (Price 0.57)
Chain Reaction: Boardwhipe most of the time. You need some mass removal. (Price: 0.67)
Pyroclasm: Clears tokens easily. (Price: 0.16)
Total Price: $12.94
Some pump activated abilities may be a good other add.

I really like your deck :)
Phyrexian Tower let's you also get more mileage out of your creatures after having used them and is a land.
Assault Strobe could be nice too to.

Could replace your domri with Domri, Anarch of Bolas to bring the price down a bit and net some ramp. Since you care about land, Abundance is fairly inexpensive for what it does. Gruul Locket is pennies and gives you some ramp with a draw outlet if needed. Could replace one of your more expensive draws. Same thing for a cantrip like Cathartic Reunion. On the passive damage side, Sulfuric Vortex and Obsidian Fireheart are under a buck.

Hey gatotempo, sorry for the late reply, I was doing a lot of number-crunching for the deck. I really like the Pyromancer, but I'm afraid of how diluted the deck will get if I allow for 3-and-below creature drops. I'm going to look into replacements for Cathartic Reunion still, however--but so far I like how deep it digs for the mana cost. Haven't found an equal, but that doesn't mean there isn't one. Thanks for commenting!

@Murphy77: It would be fairly easy to alter it to Temur, however due to personal preference I try to avoid playing beyond two colors since my consistency always seen to drop when I add a third color. Teferi's Ageless Insight is an addition I didn't think about and it fits really well, though it is currently a one-of here, I could easily drop 1-2 Cathartic Reunion if necessary.
@Balaam__: Thanks for the upvote!
