Whenever a player casts a red spell, you may gain 1 life.
colinplaysmagic89 on $60 Mono Red Prowess with Upgrade Path to Murktide

I threw together the sideboard for the $60 version based on what I could fit into the budget, but here's a general explanation of the sideboard choices:
Abrade Abrade doubles as a removal spell against creature decks and artifact hate against decks like Hammertime, Affinity, and Hardened Scales. While you can also snag a turn one Amulet of Vigor on the draw against Titan, this might be too slow. Abrade also deals with Chalice of the Void
Dragon's Claw Whenever you are in a matchup where you need to race, Dragon's Claw gains you a ton of life. Bring it in in the mirror and against burn, for sure.
Kozilek's Return This card serves a few different purposes. Because it only deals two damage, your prowess creatures will survive the spell, meaning you can use this to clear the board in matchups like Hammertime, Yawgmoth, or Creature based decks. But the spell is also colorless, meaning that it can kill creatures with protection from Red like Sanctifier en-Vec
Smash to Smithereens This gives us some extra reach against hammer and burn while also destroying their shadowspear or getting rid of an artifact blocker.
Unholy Heat This is a removal spell for matchups like Yawgmoth where we need to get through blockers or anything where we need to kill something. This can also take care of a primiveal titan if we have delirium.
Pyrite Spellbomb This card is more Sanctifier En-Vec protection.
Tormod's Crypt Zero mana graveyard hate. Because it's zero mana, it also is good for getting prowess/delirum triggers.
Soul-Guide Lantern One mana graveyard hate that gets past leyline of sanctity, or deals with a single target in the graveyard and then cantrips.

You have a bunch of cards here that don't belong in a mainboard - they're sideboard cards. If you're playing with a sideboard, then they should go there. You never want these cards to ever be in a mainboard. They are: Dragon's Claw, Pyrite Spellbomb, Tormod's Crypt, Smash to Smithereens, and Leyline of Combustion. I would also suggest that Flame Slash is a really dubious choice for a card.

i think that could only/typically happen in the mirror match... and if there is other burn/RDW in your meta give Dragon's Claw a go for the sideboard.

Just my opinion but I think the sideboard could be tuned a bit better. So, Leyline of the Void is a good card and everything, but because you don't have any looting/discard effects you just can't afford to draw it. I would run 3 Surgical Extraction or Tormod's Crypt instead because it isn't a dead draw and will activate prowess effects on your creatures. Then, Magus of the Moon can be 3 Blood Moon instead because playing the noncreature will activate prowess. With 2 extra cards in the sideboard now I would say cut a Kozilek's Return for 3 Dragon's Claw. Finally, Chandra, Dressed to Kill is good in those more grindy matchups but I feel like Shrine of Burning Rage would be better in that situation but also Roiling Vortex is something to be highly considered just because of the current modern META.
For the flex slots, all I can say is that 2-3 Bedlam Reveler seems to be fairly standard for prowess, but its up to you if you want to get experimental with it :)

dnthymamai Thank you for the support and feedback! I will add those suggestions to the sideboard promptly. Kari Zev's Expertise is big worth it! What a fun card!
I usually leave Staff of the Flame Magus on the side unless I'm playing multi-player and will likely need the health for those longer games, but I can see what you mean about Dragon's Claw being the better alternative for sure.

I would suggest you would consider Dragon's Claw instead of Staff of the Flame Magus. It may heal you less when fighting a Green or White deck, but it will come out a turn earlier, and you have greater chances of winning a mirrormatch.
Another similar suggestion would be swapping Act of Treason with another spell (since you are in mono-red, you can do it) that does a little bit more. e.g. Harness by Force or Hijack. But the best in your case would definitely be Kari Zev's Expertise ! :-)

Minor Sideboard update: Engineered Explosives is back in (use Ratchet Bomb if your budget's tight) due to the influx of The Underworld Cookbook food spam decks.
swapped 1 Dragon's Claw for a Crippling Fear just to have a one-sided boardwipe. I really want 2 claws but I already have Collective Brutality for burn as well, so 3 slots devoted to a matchup that used to be a nightmare but is more manageable with Aetherborn and Sorin. Hitting with a flying+lifelink 7/6 Nocturnus on turn 4 is not uncommon here. I cut Ashiok because I was already running 4 spellbombs for my graveyard hate. If I don't keep Crippling Fear, either I'd toss in a third Abrade or possibly a Kolaghan's Command or Dreadbore given the larger role of walkers in current modern. Or even my old favorite, Rakdos Charm. That card is incredible.

Forgot to mention Dragon's Claw and Collective Brutality for the Burn matchup.
