At the beginning of your upkeep, exile the top card of each opponent's library. Until end of turn, you may cast nonland cards from among those exiled cards, and you my spend mana as though it were mana of any colour to cat those spells.

Is there a good mono-red deck to use Stolen Strategy in ?
The art is awesome and I do love the idea of stealing my opponents stuff.

You already have almost exactly the same non-creature cards as I would have put in with this commander. I love this deck. Thornbite Staff, Goblin Sharpshooter and maybe another pinger to use the stuff thats already helping Kumano?
Lands and artifacts that do the same thing as Glaring Spotlight. There are two lands that do that? Three?
The only red card draw I really like is Stolen Strategy.

Well red and white aren't going to offer a lot of card draw unless you use something like Dragon Mage or another "all players draw cards". I like playing Stolen Strategy and pretend its card draw. Or maybe Etali, Primal Storm

Hey, Ramble, thanks for the advice! I'm genuinely puzzled that Enchantments aren't a bigger slice of the Kykar pie, she creates spirits, that create mana, that cast bigger enchantments that alter the game, until you're casting 10 spells a turn that aren't from your deck each turn with cards like Stolen Strategy and Hive Mind. I looked at artifacts, but there are so many other options for artifacts, like Breya or Sharuum. The flashback/wheel build sounds cool, I'll definitely check it out. Thanks so much!

So what I would recommend putting in are Outpost Siege - Staff of Nin - Tectonic Giant - Protector of the Crown - Tome of Legends - Mask of Memory - Infiltration Lens - Farsight Mask - Magus of the Wheel -
Two card-advantage cards are Giants, so that will "save" you two slots!
The cards that you don't own that might be worth buying are Bonders' Enclave for sure, and perhaps Well of Lost Dreams and Reforge the Soul. I love those. Stolen Strategy might be worth it too, for both Brion reasons and card-advantage reasons. It's extra good in a heavy ramp deck.
EDIT: I forgot a decent one: Vanquisher's Banner. I don't love it in decks with expensive creatures, but there it is

Next step is card-draw and card-advantage. Unfortunately, the Boros colors are the worst at drawing cards. Graveyard recursion is a type of card advantage, so Colfenor's Urn can count. I've never seen that card before! Nice find and good instincts!
Here are some options for you.
First up, the cards I own that I'm willing to part with:
Seer's Sundial - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Key to the City - Infiltration Lens - Mask of Memory - Tome of Legends - Outpost Siege - Khorvath's Fury - Humble Defector - Chandra, Flamecaller - Magus of the Wheel
Cards I don't have that you should consider:
Bonders' Enclave would be worth picking up, I think.
Browbeat - Loreseeker's Stone - Arcane Encyclopedia - Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip - Ignite the Future - Reforge the Soul - Wheel of Fate - Mind's Eye (used to be the gold-standard! Very mana-inefficient though) - Icon of Ancestry (interesting choice since it has the anthem) - Rogue's Gloves - Well of Lost Dreams (great choice with your commander!) - Coveted Jewel (ramp and draw! Unreliable and mana-expensive, but chaotic and fun!) - Mangara, the Diplomat - Runehorn Hellkite - Dragon Mage - Knollspine Dragon - Herald's Horn - Endless Atlas (a bit suspect in two-color decks unless your colors are very skewed or you have lots of Renegade Map-type cards) - Bag of Holding - Arch of Orazca - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Mazemind Tome

Haha I did miss Fiendish Duo, I saw the wheel creatures and got distracted. Sometimes I run Stolen Strategy or Grenzo, Havoc Raiser or Chandra, Torch of Defiance for impulse card advantage, but a vast majority of my red or boros decks have relied on wheels, so I always like when I see them in brews.
