Lava Dart Discussion

Cool idea! It's very budget so I'll try to keep to that but I feel like you can get away with less lands due to your general curve, I'd be happier with something like 19 maybe 18 lands. With that additional space I'd consider finding room for Lava Dart, it's both very cheap and great Kiln Fiend fuel. I think dropping a Skullcrack, a land, and 1 Thunderous Wrath could facilitate this and would also potentially aid in continuing the thesis of this deck.
To this end, I wonder if you have tried Viashino Pyromancer in the Hellspark Elemental slot? The appeal to the former is it at least guarantees 2 damage. It's power is lower yes and it doesn't have haste but I feel it may be worth a shot. Basically I want to see if you can get this even cheaper.

I think Lava Dart is a must in any prowess deck. One damage twice, plus two prowess activations for one mana is pretty awesome.

Spell_Slam- I think you're right about the Mutagenic Growth. I just don't know what to cut. I also think Lava Dart could be very interesting, especially with the Faithless Looting in the deck. I would implore you to try this deck out with the cards you suggested- and if it works let me know and I'll change it accordingly. I really appreciate you checking out my deck man, and it is a damn shame they have banned some of the better pieces for this deck.

This deck got hit with so many bans through the years (despite it never being the problem). I've been trying to recoup my paper deck into something playable. This seems like a great start.
At this point, I would think about running all 4 Mutagenic Growths. Free spells are the bread and butter of the deck.
In the same vein, I was considering playing a playset of Gut Shot. It's basically a free 4 damage spell with Kiln Fiend.
I was also thinking about adding Lava Dart, which is an additional 7 damage for 1 mana and 1 mountain.
What do you think of these cards? Anything worth running?

Update: Replaced 15 cards
I was able to test my deck out in four matches of a (4 way fight). I had really good success with pulling high threats to the board. However I noticed that my deck speed was too slow, and some cards weren't as useful I initially thought they would be i.e.(repeated reverberation). I also didn't have enough protection from removals once I had my combo set up. Another player sacrificed himself many times just to stop me. I pulled a few ramps, and other items to add in more draw/burn/removal. One treat I'm really looking forward too is Lava Dart . If i have this in my graveyard it's a free pass to ignite my combos if i run out of spells and mana to set them up.

Play 4X Shard Volley, Skewer the Critics, and Rift Bolt. These are all cheap impactful cards. I would play Thunderous Wrath as a 2 of in budget burn builds because it can be the BEST burn spell ever if you draw it and it's not in your opening hand. for five damage is pretty powerful. Even in a budget deck Lightning Bolt still needs to go in. It's not too much money and it's a stable card in several formats. Take out Storm Strike, Incendiary Flow, Thrill of Possibility, 2XLava Dart, 2XSearing Spear, and 2XTarfire. You can check out my budget burn deck here: Red = Burn Spells and More Burn Spells
