-7: Exile the top seven cards of your library. You may play them this turn.
Chandra, Fire Artisan Discussion

Cut Chandra, Fire Artisan for Ugin or any enchantment removal. Mono red struggles with that and if someone has a troubling enchantment, then you're in trouble. I see Chaos Warp in the maybeboard, curious why it isn't included?
While I usually like to employ loads of non-basics in my mono color decks, I feel that in Torbran it wouldn't be the best given that burning earth hurts you as well. I don't see the benefit of a lot of your non-basics lands to justify it. Play it out, let me know how it goes, I could be wrong.
Wheel of Fortune - Card draw
Humble Defector - More card draw + politics (you remember our recent humble swaps)
Volcanic Offering - Such a good card, lots of value, 4 effects in 1 card = destroy 2 nonbasic lands and 2 creatures for 5 mana instant speed. Great value IMO.
Inventors' Fair - Tutor with minimal yet noticeable lifegain. Has saved me in Norin a couple times, a staple for any deck with 20+ artifacts.

Solar Blaze is another board wipe, but it's more situational.
I would also replace Ugin, the Ineffable for Chandra, Fire Artisan or maybe Chandra, Acolyte of Flame . Chandra, Fire Artisan is cheaper and still gets you card advantage and damage. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame gives you damage, can put a counter on The Royal Scions or lets you reuse a spell (ex: Dance of the Manse or Deafening Clarion ). For the same mana cost you could get one of the other Mythic Chandras, but neither of them give you the card advantage.
For the sideboard it really just depends on which decks you think this one will have the most trouble with, and then you sideboard in to deal with those colors. For example, if your deck does fine against aggressive red decks, then there's no need to sideboard in against red but you should sideboard in against, for example, if your deck does bad against control or black decks.
Devout Decree is the one card I want to really point out the value, it's 2 cost to exile a creature or a planeswalker and it gets you a scry, so it's basically a better Prison Realm for Black and Red. Aether Gust has the nice effect of being able to counter, with the downside of them being able to choose to put it on top of their library (at least I believe this is how the card works).
Reckless Air Strike is a card to consider if you want artifact removal, but I don't personally think your deck needs it.

Another idea is Chandra, Fire Artisan could also help you with card advantage, plus she''s be a bitch to get rid of since Torbran will increase the damage done if she's attacked.

ChibiNature tell me what you think about this: I could tune it to chase the Arcbond + Martyrdom combo and add in more indestructible instants, but I know Feather is not the Legendary to expect more out of than getting lucky and steamrolling one player in a cEDH pod even at its best. I'm not looking to spend a whole bunch of cash to win dollars--I just like playing to be social without being a complete casual. Pinging keeps the pressure on everyone if I can protect the creatures but there aren't enough of those to rely on. Prophetic Flamespeaker 's pseudo card draw is what makes it stay in; Swiftblade Vindicator is on the way out so I'm looking at also removing Uncanny Speed and Invigorated Rampage because they lack a card advantage or defense function. Akroan Conscriptor is great for it's ability to steal things at instant speed but it is one of my highest CMC cards and is not always relevant; there is a far stronger argument for keeping Magnetic Theft around despite it being a dead card sometimes. I'm not even sure how attached I should be to Charmbreaker Devils because it is at the top of my curve and the effect is random. Myth Realized and Scroll of the Masters are slow but definitely require answers before they get out of hand; Chandra, Fire Artisan isn't going to win the game on the turn it hits, either, but that ultimate digs deep and does damage at the same time. Settle Beyond Reality feels like a super great effect but I think it isn't good enough at sorcery speed and I would likely be defenseless after using that much mana; Sentinel Tower is also being cut because of only working on my turn. Primal Amulet Flip seems like a sure buy once it cycles, as does a Clifftop Retreat ; Settle the Wreckage can be cast with Sunforger so it feels like something to consider strongly as well. I could use Fateful Showdown to target my own creature like I plan to to do with Orim's Thunder and recycle it with Feather's ability but it would require indestructible backup.

Also your list seems to be pretty divided in how it wants to win the game. On one hand you are trying to ping everyone to death with cards like Guttersnipe . Yet on the other hand you are also trying to win via combat with cards like Prophetic Flamespeaker . Just remember that a deck that tries to do too many things will end up doing neither.
Since this isn't a cEDH list I am not too sure how far you want to take it competitively, but as a general rule I try to stay away from lands that enter tapped no matter what like Temple of Triumph in a deck that is really reliant on being fast.

I was originally going to say yes, but that guildmage saved a lot of damage in two games by tapping down a big attacker a lot, and enabling Nahiri, Storm of Stone . I might drop the Boros Challenger since most of the creatures in your deck already have two power, or at most you will get one trigger.
Also, Legion Warboss generally doesn't add much value in my experience. The one goblin it makes often gets chump blocked, then he gets removed. I would say overall: -3 Legion Warboss and -3 Boros Challenger for +1 Tajic and Aurelia, and +4 Hero of Precinct One .
I feel Like Solar Blaze should be a 3-of in Side Board, not a 1-of in main. Given your creature costs, do you often find it is killing them? Deafening Clarion might get you further, giving you a lot of lifelink and a small scale boardwipe if needed. I might do -1 Solar Blaze and -1 Response / Resurgence for +2 Deafening Clarion in mainboard to keep up with some options.
Lastly, this deck needs some deck filtering/card draw. I recommend 3x Revitalize in the Sideboard against Aggro to keep ahead. I also recommend 2x Light Up the Stage . I would remove 1x Mountain and 1x Plain, and go 22 Lands. This deck tops out at 4, so you don't need a lot of mana late game. If that makes it harder to use the Guildmages, then maybe you drop them for some similar prison effect that is less mana intensive, like Prison Realm (which I like for the Scry). As you develop your rares, I would drop the Nahiri's for Experimental Frenzy or Chandra, Fire Artisan . Again, no more running out of gas.
Note on Sideboarding: I know sideboarding can be a pain, but with White, you have the best sideboard color in the game, and learning to use it can be very important. If you just do 1-ofs in Arena, I guess Nvm. If not, get some Disenchant and Revitalize in the sideboard, along with Lava Coil to start.
Hope this helps!
