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!

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...
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.

*In my playgroup my creatures get destroyed or sacrificed quite often, so I opted for something with a lower mana cost.

For a purely casual burn deck, I really love running Syr Carah, the Bold for some card advantage. She plays really nice with Rift Bolt because you will be untapping when rifty-B does it's damage. And this is just me, but I like Needle Drop
Uggh, this makes me want to dust off my burn some draw some Izzet deck. Thanks!

Have you considered swapping Syr Carah, the Bold as the general? Access to her with the stone potentially changes the odds from 1 in 4 to 1 in 7 cards. This would dramatically lower the demand of approaches needed

I'd like to add to my ideas:
Finally, I have no idea if there's a commander that could even do it, but a GX version of Mishra, Artificer Prodigy around cards like Wild Pair and Panglacial Wurm would be pretty wild. Does anyone have an idea for a commander for that?
