Lava Dart and Shower of Sparks in my testing have been extremely valuable.

I see the Keldon Megaliths, if this deck goes hellbent Scalding Tongs might be worthwhile.

Just built and started testing Ghyrson out myself.

Get that Lava Dart into the main board. Too much easy value.

Shower of Sparks hidden gem I found digging thru my collection. Double Lightning Bolt for the same cost!

If your deck goes hellbent Scalding Tongs.

If your deck goes control Thumbscrews.

TapatioDorito Thanks for the suggestions! I like the idea of using Play with Fire to help scry for cards. That was actually my thought process for switching out my Monastery Swiftspear with Dragon's Rage Channeler. The suggestion by wallisface to add Seal of Fire just confirmed it haha! I may end up switching in Play with Fire for Lava Spike if I decide I want to manipulate that top card more. I think Dragon's Rage Channeler beats out Play with Fire for now because I prefer Lava Dart in the graveyard and surveil fuels Bedlam Reveler.

Temur Battle Rage and similar effects are interesting and something I hadn't considered. It would help increase combat damage, but I think it makes me more vulnerable to creature removal by piling effects onto one creature. I'll keep that in mind though!

Thanks again for the suggestions!

wallisface Thanks for the suggestion! Seal of Fire is an interesting idea! The purpose of Guttersnipe was to take advantage of its trigger to deal noncombat damage. I'm not committed to it, but I considered using it to get additional value out of Lava Dart and other instants/sorceries. It does pair well with the ability of Chandra's Incinerator, but I admit it's on the cutting board and one of the reasons I'm looking for replacements within the community lol! If I remove Guttersnipe I may be looking to replace Lava Dart as well....

My thinking with Soul-Scar Mage was to get around indestructible or whittle down large creatures. Additionally I considered using it against protection from red in conjunction with Anger of the Gods, but I'm realizing as I type this it would likely be a niche situation where both are needed. Concerning indestructible or large creatures, I could see Soul-Scar Mage doing real work with Chandra's Incinerator if they're both on the battlefield. To be honest though I don't know the prevalence of these strategies or how well this might answer them....

Thanks again for your suggestion though, much appreciated!

Hello SeekerofSecrets! First off, thank you for being the first to comment.

I love how consistent mono decks are with their mana base, which is why when I first started playing modern I played mono red goblins. I'm fine with going mono red is what I'm getting at. It's my favorite color after all! :D

I'd like to know more about why you'd include Lava Dart, Soul-Scar Mage and Dragon's Rage Channeler (is that Darcy?).

Isn't lava dart too weak? Even if it does eventually act as a Tarfire isn't sacrificing a mountain more detrimental than doing 2 damage total? Am I missing something?

Soul scar mage has prowess but it doesn't have haste. If you compare it to Delver of Secrets  Flip, soul scar mage needs a damage source from you, which means a card from your hand, most of the time. I understand that delver makes you lose the element of surprise, and doesn't have haste, but passing through your opponent's creatures with a 3/2 flier as soon as your next turn is pretty good, is it not?

Finally, dragon's rage channeler in this deck will only trigger if you have at least one of a land, instant, sorcery, and creatures. That's a lot to ask for is it not? Wouldn't you want to run enchantments or artifacts to get Dragon's rage channeler to trigger easily? Plus there's only 8 sorceries total.

P.s. Crash Through does let you draw a card, but is the trample really that good? Why not Dragon Mantle for example?
