Why not in this deck Light Up the Stage

I mean, the main thing I see that you're missing is card draw. Red is bad at it, but it still exists -- and drawing more cards makes Neheb, the Eternal all the more powerful. Additionally, if you are drawing enough threats, your commander won't have such a big target on his head. I suggest at least considering some of the following:

Additionally, there're some cards I think you should at least consider:

Good luck!

Burnished Hart is a little slow, but its worth it for me. ESPECIALLY with Feldon of the Third Path late game combined with valakut is one of my favorite wincons. Ramp and bolts all in one!

Stingscourger will be eventually cut for something else, haven't decided yet. He is eh. It's cool when he costs 1 mana due to medalion and I have double ETB's through Panharmonichron. Otherwise, eh.

Humble Defector and Starke of Rath have both been useful, humble moreso. Just played a game today where I had Homeward Path out. Even if I didn't I made a deal with the boros player (I run 2 gauntlets to help him and myself) to give it back to me since we both needed card draw.

Regarding Outpost Siege and Light Up the Stage , both seem cool but im worried I might not wanna cast the top card and it would just stay in exile. Thoughts on Stolen Strategy instead? Costs 1 more mana but its each opponent, messes with topdeck tutors (prevalent in my meta).

Im gonna remove Jaya's Immolating Inferno for Pyrohemia , that just seems like fun!

Smuggler's Copter - Is the looting helpful? Crew 1 seems very easy with Norin.

As for Cloudstone Curio , I know it's a broken card. I will need to playtest it to fully understand how broken it is!

Norin players unite!

Burnished Hart - I've found this to be just too slow and expensive, and just underwhelming and frustrating. Same with Feldon of the Third Path . How have they worked for you? I'm also curious about Stingscourger - i ended up cutting it. By the way, I was underwhelmed by Terrain Generator .

How have Humble Defector and Starke of Rath performed? Not sure if they seems worth it

Some of my first additions to this list would be- Pyrohemia , Outpost Siege Smuggler's Copter , Cloudstone Curio and Light Up the Stage .

Light Up the Stage is a great way to keep momentum going in a burn deck.

What about Light Up the Stage ? If you’re not dredging it’s the same as looting without having to discard it just has a time limit.

Haven't visited in a while!! Hi!!

I come bearing suggestions:

Light Up the Stage and Ignite the Future are both fantastic red "draw" cards that give a more forgiving window and I have grown to love them. They may help you gain card advantage without costing you life.

Risk Factor

Pretty much only need blue if you want counterspells. Otherwise just play burn
