Whenever you cast a spell from your hand, reveal the top X cards of your library, where X is that spell's converted mana cost/mana value. You may cast a card revealed this way with converted mana cost/mana value X or less without paying its mana cost. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

This. Is. Magnificent! May I humbly suggest Sunbird's Invocation and Warstorm Surge? Sunbird's will not just effectively double your mana, but will also churn through your deck. You will probably look at every card in just a few turns, some more than once. Warstorm plus Neheb would rebate you most/all of your mana if you have to cast creatures 1st main phase (though can't imagine you would ever). Admittedly, without having seen the deck in action, I have no idea if it needs these cards, just that I think they are pretty sweet and seem like a good fit.

Hey here is some thoughts I have on the deck. The comments are through the lens of trying to be very competitive.
With Birgi, the strongest win condition is storming out and clapping all of your opponent's cheeks in one fell swoop. The best way to achieve this is comboing out as opposed to going for a lot of chip damage. Chip damage by its very nature takes time and is hard to make work in a competitive meta (maybe in some form of stax it could work). Your deck list appears to have its foot in both doors which is fun and cool, but ultimately reduces the overall lethality of the deck.
The problem with mono-red as a top-tier EDH colour is that it is very limited in tutors, which makes it difficult to find your win conditions consistently. To overcome this, a player needs to put in a few win conditions and the ability to dig for them in the deck. You really are on the right track I think with all the cantrip and impulse draw spells. Dragon's Rage Channeler filters like a champ in this deck, and synergizes very well with Past in Flames and Underworld Breach
You have Grapeshot which is great, but if you were to also throw in an Aetherflux Reservoir and Manaform Hellkite you would be set up. Grinning Ignus with Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip gives you infinite storm. Add a Ruby Medallion to turn this into infinite mana, and a Impact Tremors or Altar of the Brood for an additional win con. Also quite funny with Sunbird's Invocation. You can tutor for the Ingus pretty reliably with Imperial Recruiter and Flamekin Harbinger.
So I realize this is turning into a small essay so I'll try to keep it a little briefer.
If you take the path of trying to combo, some cuts I'd make because they either are clunky, work towards a different win con, or just don't generate a ton of value are: Insurrection Captain Lannery Storm Quakebringer Toralf, God of Fury Flip Blindblast Traitorous Blood Experimental Frenzy
If you are going to all-in commit to just combing off with ingus (which I think you should) also consider cutting: Sulfuric Vortex Stigma Lasher Solphim, Mayhem Dominus Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Mechanized Warfare
I can talk on and on and on about theory for this deck so just hit me up if you want more insight. You know what you're doing, so obviously ignore me if this "deck primer" doesn't suit you at all!

I would recommend some of the Eldrazi titans, such as Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger as some big top end bombs. Some ramp creatures wouldn't go amiss either, such as Birds of Paradise, and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove.
In terms of Instants, Sorceries, and Enchantments, getting some more of the Ultimatum cycle (Brilliant Ultimatum, Cruel Ultimatum, Emergent Ultimatum) might be a good idea, and Sunbird's Invocation would be a good idea too if you are casting such big CMC cards.
Another recommended addition would be Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh as it is just a straight up good card for the colour and big mana theme.
I'd recommend replacing the tapped tri-lands (Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Frontier Bivouac, Jungle Shrine, Mystic Monastery, Nomad Outpost, Opulent Palace, Sandsteppe Citadel, Savage Lands, and Seaside Citadel) with the shock land cycle (Blood Crypt, Breeding Pool, Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, Overgrown Tomb, Sacred Foundry, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, Temple Garden, and Watery Grave) as they are easier to fetch for or find with ramp spells.
Final notes: Give the deck a little more of a creature focus, having as few as you have right now you'll find there is very little to hit with your reanimation, but other then that, good job on the first draft! looking forward to see how it plays out!

Okay, so cuts first: 1. all the "Diamond" series of mana rocks can go, they're kind of bad. The signets are good, they can stay.
Paradoxical Outcome can go. It's not exactly what you want here since you don't have strong ETB themes.
Keep Safe there are better counters.
Decoy Gambit can go. Not really strong enough to warrant giving people the options.
Sunbird's Invocation is a bit too expensive for what it does in this deck, IMO.
Dualcaster Mage - this doesn't target (its ETB effect does the targeting), but if you want the copy effect, you can replace it later with something else, like Increasing Vengeance.
Radiant Scrollwielder and Soulfire Grand Master - I saw exactly 4 cards that these even affect, probably not worth using with so little synergy. (and their abilities aren't the most useful here)
Oona's Grace - not bad, but not worthy of the 100.
Aether Gale - you have other cards that do what this is trying to do, but better.
You've also got what looks like multiples of a couple cards, which could help the count. Hope this helps! Let me know after you've made some edits and I'll help some more.

SteelSentry on Do you consider "Value" = …

most deckbuilding templates suggest you use 8-10 pieces of card draw, whether it's the Command Zone's template, the 8x8 method, or otherwise. If you're building a deck with cards like Defense of the Heart, Genesis Storm, or Sunbird's Invocation, do you consider these pieces to be "card draw", or do you have a category dedicated to "free value" cards?

Jodah is my favorite commander, so I kind of have a thing for giving feedback on other peoples Jodah decks.
First, Enter the Infinite. With Omniscience, it wins the game. My other suggestions are Sunbird's Invocation, Cast Through Time, Swarm Intelligence, Lurking Predators, Chromatic Lantern,Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves, (both are must-haves), Progenitus, Sphinx of the Second Sun, and Faeburrow Elder. I’ll stop now because at this point I’m basically just listing off all of the cards that I have in my deck that you don’t.
You can check out my Woah, where did THAT come from? Jodah deck if you want some more ideas.

I like Sunbird's Invocation in decks like this. Greater Good could really help you refill your hand in response to a giant getting targeted. I also like Rishkar's Expertise as a big draw/big play spell. Brion Stoutarm could provide some extra utility.
I'm not sure on your custom card there. I like it, but wonder how pushed it is. Have you got a chance to sit with a group that will let you play it? If so, how did it affect the overall performance of the deck, especially with K&T being able to provide the ramp it does?
Anywho, I like it. Hope these help. +1.
