SufferFromEDHD on Mono Red Enchantments

I've been brewing this same concept along with mono green enchantment control the past few weeks. I really like what you have going here!

Goblin Chainwhirler and Syr Carah, the Bold seem out of place. Eidolon of the Great Revel and Forgeborn Oreads would be upgrades.

Risky Move and Confusion in the Ranks this janky combo finally has a home.

Grip of Chaos for more chaos.

No Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle???

Flame Fusillade is super secret tech!

Icaruskid on Dominus Burn

king-saproling I definitely agree on Spellweaver Helix. It's better than Harness the Storm though I dislike it slowing me down by exiling two Dragon's Approach from the graveyard. It's a minor drawback that would otherwise make this an instant maindeck choice. I still go back and forth on it.

Neheb is a powerhouse in any red deck and in burn its a massive mana source. In practice, it's effects usually take a turn to realize and because it's a creature it's pretty vulnerable. It's a big effect but might be on the verge of win-more for my personal tastes.

Syr Carah, the Bold is an excellent suggestion! Repeatable card advantage and damage all in one is at a premium here. The only downside is that it's a creature that is vulnerable to enemy removal and it gets hit by Earthquake. These minor factors keep it on the backburner but it's a close call.

You've got me thinking! Thank you for sharing!

Personally I would make these swaps:

Exalted Flamer of Tzeentch -> Ruby Medallion
Necropotence -> Syr Carah, the Bold
Rhystic Study -> Spellweaver Helix
Jeweled Lotus -> Reckless Barbarian
Mox Amber -> Cheering Fanatic
Firebrand Archer -> Chart a Course
Dimir Signet -> Sign in Blood
Chromatic Lantern -> Ancestral Vision
Talisman of Dominance -> Knollspine Dragon
Vampiric Tutor -> Niv-Mizzet, Parun
Thought Vessel -> Thrumming Stone
Faithless Looting, Toxic Deluge, Wheel of Misfortune, An Offer You Can't Refuse, Negate, Mana Drain, Chaos Warp, Deadly Rollick, Deflecting Swat, Pongify, Teminate, Stubborn Denial, Lightning Greaves -> 13x Dragon's Approach

This is a very cool list, I really like the idea here. I also have some suggestions for you:

Syr Carah, the Bold could be additional card draw for you. Passionate Archaeologist will be a constant source of damage. Tavern Brawler and Outpost Siege draw additional cards.

You already have Blazing Sunsteel + Brash Taunter/Stuffy Doll, so that's an infinite combo you can use to win. Coalhauler Swine is another "masochist" creature. Chain of Plasma can turn your hand into fuel, and the empty hand is something you could utilize via Ghirapur Orrery. One final creature to include is Stormwild Capridor.

I agree with your decision to exclude Deflecting Swat and Lightning Greaves since they are cards that say your "planning for the worst" (which is even dumber than regular planning). I think a better way to make sure Syr Carah, the Bold spends as much time as possible on the battlefield is to max out on rituals like Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual and Mana Geyser. Maybe also max out on mana positive rocks like Mox Diamond Grim Monolith Mana Vault and Grim Monolith. At 36 lands you could almost swap any mana positive spell for a land and probably run a bit smoother and faster. I know those are big money cards but I see that Lion's Eye Diamond

+1 for embracing the battlecruiser / glass cannon aspects of Syr Carah, the Bold!

Jett2112 on Impulsive Immolation

It's a bit irresponsible but I usually tap out to cast syr carah so giving her haste to ping is fine but I usually won't be able to cast whatever I impulse draw that turn. The play pattern is usually ramp into Syr Carah, the Bold then on the next turn tap or attack with her to impulse draw chaining 4 mana worth of burn spells till I impulse draw a land.

Ward of Bones and Smoke are excellent recs. HOWEVER. this deck is full on Johnny. all spells must make mana or card advantage and or be a damage dealing instant or sorcery, which with Syr Carah, the Bold is card advantage. except I guess for Wild Magic Surge and Chaos Warp just because I'm not completely irresponsible...

I changed the lands as per SufferFromEDHD recs. Do I have enough Mountains? we shall see...

Gamble? yeah. worst case scenario I find Volcanic Spray and put it into the graveyard. Best case I get Repercussion or a needed interaction in hand. It's not like I can discard combo pieces in this deck so it is card advantage or at least a one mana chance at card advantage.
