Gitaxian Probe and Lava Dart will be really good here, Mental Misstep is probably solid too but you lose the targets of Sol Ring, Mystical and Vampiric Tutor, Top, Seal, Entomb and Tide, but there's tons of great 1 drops anyways that I'd still run it. 2 life to counter a mana dork, Brainstorm, Gamble, Wordly or Enlightened Tutor? Seems great.
Also, Storm. Grapeshot after a couple cheap or free spells can not only deal a solid chunk of damage, but it also can give you a lot of Magecraft triggers(and you can kill a commander with it).
You could definitely cut a couple of the higher CMC cards as they'll clog up your gameplan a bit -- run a few more cantrips and interaction such as Preordain , Serum Visions , Faithless Looting , Lightning Bolt , Spell Pierce and Miscast .
Also, a couple rituals -- Rite of Flame is the best one here, but Simian Spirit Guide also works. Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual are also okay, but they don't help you cast Veyran so they're last in line for those slots.

If you are playing a budget storm list, Lava Dart & Conflagrate will add reach and multiple spell casts. Escape Velocity or Underworld Rage-Hound type escape cards makes fossil find a lot better. Just jamming stuff that reads 'when spell' and 'draw a card' will work ok - though meta consideration, luminmancer is making people pack removal for that plan.
Force of Rage is fairly cheap and a pair of ambush vipers can be useful.
There are some cool sideboard options - Tunnel Ignus , Sulfur Elemental , Ingot Chewer and so forth, but they have mostly been balanced around Flamekin Harbinger which is out of budget, so slots will dissapear quick - I'd look at hiding some mainboard.

legality is 8th edition onward with a ban list....
typically described as a 4 turn format (your deck should be able to win/stabilize to win by turn 4).
dont be too greedy with your mana base Blood Moon exists.

YamishiTheWickedOne, no argument that Dark Confidant is solid and worth considering. The drain & gain should offset the life loss, but was never crazy about the card and it’s easily sniped by Lava Dart .

One thing I'm noticing as I look through this deck it that you have alot of specific artifact destruction, and the thing is, its going to be very dead in a large portion of your matchups, and even in those matchups they can rebuild quite quickly from something like Shattering Spree . Id advocate for playing Sulfuric Vortex , this card is an all-star in burn and normal RDW. Additionally, Char and Lava Dart are both great at really getting in those final points of damage, and Lava Dart helps when your really flooding out on lands. Additionally, I could 100% see this deck going down to around 32 lands because your almost always going to reach the threshold of 3 lands, and when you run out of steam your going to have a larger chance of having better topdecks.

jacobpmesser thanks for the suggestions, I really like the idea of the synergy with Blood Artist , but in a Lava Dart heavy meta an 0/1 is super squishy. Silversmote Ghoul can sac itself for card draw, is an incredible combo with Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord 2nd +1 that’s guaranteed to come back from the graveyard (having multiple cards able to comeback is nice). I don’t mind that it’s only a 1 toughness because it easily comes back, blood artist would need lurrus or Unearth to come back. I agree silversmote & sorin are a nonbo with lurrus, but other targets exist for lurrus.
