I would like to recommend +4 Scalding Tarn, +4 Steam Vents, +4 Goblin Electromancer, + 4 Manamorphose, -3 Vessel of Volatility, -1 Pentad Prism, -4 Sleight of Hand, -3 Island, -5 Mountain, swap Serum Visions for Preordain (scry, then draw to help on combo turns), or Peer Through Depths (grabs instants or sorceries 5 deep and can use Splice onto Arcane from Desperate Ritual, or even See Beyond (Draw two, then shuffle dragon from your hand into library so it's not stuck).

The splice ability on Desperate Ritual only allows you to splice it onto an arcane spell. An arcane spell is a spell that has the Arcane subtype. Examples of cards with the arcane subtype are Goryo's Vengeance or Nourishing Shoal. Since Fanning the Flames does not have the arcane subtype, you cannot splice Desperate Ritual onto it.

Say I have 5 counters on Mizzix of the Izmagnus and I want to cast and buy back Fanning the Flames (2 red, 4 colorless for 1 damage), while casting I use the splice from Desperate Ritual (1 red, 1 colorless) to add 3 red to my mana pool. How does this play out?
A) Pay desperate rituals 1 colorless with Mizzix, resulting in an infinite combo of casting and buying back fanning the flames and splicing desperate ritual, then spending desperate rituals 3 red mana to cast it all again.
B) Mizzix can not pay the colorless for desperate ritual and I end up with a repeatable combo for as long as I can cover the 1 colorless from another source.

Yo MoGoose831, it looks like you have a pretty decent list. Here might be some inexpensive cards that can be considered as well!
Some cuts can be the 0 drop creature as they don't really help you when you have Kykar out. It might be a little bit more on the expensive side but some of the really helpful spells are ones that makes creatures as well such as Monastery Mentor and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer. Purphoros, God of the Forge is also a great one to rack up damage, you can also try out Crown of Flames it makes you infinite triggers if you have a token doubler effect. Bonus Round and Past in Flames are super good cards to use as well as Underworld Breach.
I have an old list if ya wanna take a look.

What you're describing sounds more like a prison deck than what I typically think of from the "skred red" archetype. Having said that, if I recall correctly, the lists I was referencing when I first tried to build this included some number each of Chalice and Bridge in the sideboard, so what you're describing probably isn't actually that different of a beast. You're right about not dropping money on either of those, however; though I have most of the cards you listed in my collection, I have no copies of Chalice or Bridge. What did the decks you've seen ramp towards? Was the point of SSG and rituals simply to slam lock pieces ASAP? What did they do to win once the board was controlled?
Also, weren't Desperate Ritual and Pyretic Ritual banned at one point? I could have sworn they were out before even Seething Song, and must have forgotten having read about their unbanning... or perhaps I'm merely imagining it all?

The last Skred lists I have seen all play a playset of:
Ensnaring Bridge, Chalice of the Void, Blood Moon Simian Spirit Guide, Desperate Ritual along with varying numbers of Pyretic Ritual. They usualy have the bulk of board wipes in the side, and have Goblin Rabblemaster in the three drop creature slot.
All this information is all wrong if mono-red-prison and Skred have recently seperated into different decks :)
