As an additional cost to cast Fling, sacrifice a creature.
Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature, player or planeswalker.

Also, you can Fling Emrakul Incarnate with the ETB on the stack, so your opponent is deal 50 damage before you have to pay 20 life.

@FiveMagicsMaster; A decade or so ago there were competitive decks that got nicknamed "Pebbles". Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Pebbles, etc.
They used the following combination of cards or similar to beat people's life totals down with infinite "pings" of damage: Shield Sphere + Goblin Bombardment + Enduring Renewal . Any 0 cost creature would work. You sac the creature to trigger the damage, the renewal got it back to your hand, play the creature for free since 0 cost then keep doing it until they died. The difference in the deck names usually meant what cards were used to assemble the combo. Like Cocoa Pebbles used Necropotence to get to the combo pieces.
So naming combo decks, especially decks taking advantage of 0 cost creatures or 0 cost artifacts to win games started getting named after cereals. "Cheerios" decks use 0 cost artifacts to keep burning through their library and burning their opponent.
Pandemonium & Warstorm Surge are different from those being a non-sacrifice type of Fling . Like said, those don't have a theme. Just burn. A card like Burning Anger that taps to do damage might be considered a "Pinger" theme card like Prodigal Sorcerer but because its not 1 point at a time it may not be.

It's refreshing to see new players coming up with their own deck ideas instead of just copying the top meta decks. Welcome to the game btw!
I haven't seen many people play dedicated "fractal" decks so far, but something that I've seen people make work was using Body of Research to make a huge body and then win with Fling or Kazuul's Fury Flip. It seems pretty close to the way you try to play the deck anyway seeing how you like to have Solve the Equation in your opening hands. A combo deck like that wouldn't really need as many tribal interaction and focus mostly on getting the right cards out asap while just staying alive, so cards that give better card selections Omen of the Sea , bounce spells Into the Roil and counterspells Saw It Coming could be more helpful.
If you prefer to play the tribal aspect where you try to win with creatures and superior board state, you shouldn't really need to rush to a specific card like you do when using Solve the Equation . Instead you should try to get the most out of you creatures. The Great Henge seems like a great fit in this case since you will have large bodies for the discount, and your creatures will get more +1/+1 counters for your existing synergies. I'm not sure what Confounding Conundrum is there for, it's usually a side-board card, or a card built around things like Field of Ruin to trigger it or in Yorion, Sky Nomad to bounce it, but another 2 drop you could consider would be Guardian Gladewalker since it gives a +1/+1 counter and it also counts as a fractal for Biomathematician .
I find that The Ozolith is a very nice fit for the deck, but drawing multiple is hardly ever going to help you, so you could easily cut 1 and only play 3. Also, going up to 23(or more) lands certainly wouldn't hurt. You could make it a Mountain if you want to go the combo route to supplement your Ketria Triome for the red splash so that any Fabled Passage can be a red source.
Btw, you seem to think that The Ozolith would cover you if Body of Research gets "countered", but if that happens the creature won't ever exist, so there will be no counters for The Ozolith to pick-up. If it resolves and then the creature gets destroy or remove from play by any means, then yes it would work.
Hopefully these suggestions are useful,

Fling is a cool idea, tho from playtesting this deck Rielle is typically only up to probably about 7 or 8 power on average by the end of the game so it wouldn't be something that could do the job entirely. Also, Ox of Agonas tends to be a very important card for breaking the game in my favor so he gets dibs on the bulk of the graveyard- obviously you want to leave as many instants/sorceries in the yard as possible for Rielle and Magmatic Channeler , but generally speaking those cards and triggers from Ox are more important.

God damn that's a long maybe board lol. I think you should cut out cards that are just big such as Adamaro, First to Desire you want trigger/activated abilities so that it can be more interactive with your deck unless you want to drop him so you Fling . If you can figure out which way you want to go with your deck I can help narrow down your list.

Deck looks interesting and description was a nice read, I'm surprised you didn't find any political joke to make around Improbable Alliance though!

Wow, what a deck, very creative. I would probably buy it. . . except for the three Mana Confluences, very questionable. I'm assuming that is for blue mana, honestly, just run an Izzet Guildgate instead. This is very good but lacks win conditions, I have some notable suggestions below:) Suggestions:(at least consider sideboarding) Colossification + Fling (will usually seem suspicious in a gruul w a lil blue deck, so wait for your opponents to tap out, and if you want to take it even further Unleash Fury ) Brash Taunter + Unleash Fury or Brash Taunter + Star of Extinction add some counterspells maybe? Dissolve or Cancel Guttersnipe + Dictate of the Twin Gods (note: if you really wanna go crazy, throw in some Shock s, you're paying 1 for four damage lol) Finally, always reccomend Soul-Guide Lantern , pioneer players are mean and very often try to recast from the graveyards, as you will run into a lot more dreadhorde archanists probably, in black decks which is even more scary, given some of the spells they could play.
So that's all i got, like I said, i like the idea of this deck, just take these into consideration:) aslo, if you put Colossification on your Dreadhorde Archanist, essentially you can cast any instant or sorcery spell you want lol

CaveBoy - LOL, Thud is fantastic. I do have Fling in the Maybeboard. Thud economically is good value for sure -- 1 Red to fling our buffed creature? Fantastic! My only concern is the sorcery speed of Thud , however since a part of the idea of this deck is to lean more on the casual side, Thud does make a good fit if you wanted to go through the fling-card route. I'm holding off on that personally to give more of a chance for the Living Weapon themed Mortarpod to shine in combination with a pumped up Fireblade Charger , in terms of big damage. Thud / Fling is technically better, as it's basically doubling Fireblade Charger 's effect, but this is supposed to be a Living Weapons deck! I wanna use Mortarpod ! Haha. That being said, it does become even more compelling to use if you were to swap out Warren Instigator for the Maybeboard-card, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade . A lovely card for the deck in many aspects and to myself (I love the look of that Future Sight border sooo much -- they're my favorite aesthetically), Korlash, Heir to Blackblade with a Lashwrithe and/or Cranial Plating will make him a big boy. If you happen upon a 2nd copy in hand, you can buff while also ramp, and of course if you were to have Thud or Fling , you're dishing out some spicy damage. Lots of fun ideas here!
