Valakut Awakening

Instant

Put any number of cards from your hand on the bottom of your library, then draw that many cards plus one.

Avaricious Dragon might be worth a spot.

Valakut Awakening  Flip could be upgraded to discard like Change of Fortune, Dangerous Wager or Dragon Mage.

Gamble great tutor to begin with by the random discard is an upside in this deck.

Null Brooch grants Negate to colors that can't Negate.

Geier Reach Sanitarium > Mikokoro, Center of the Sea

As Imodane is rather powerful in a deck like this, I'd recommend adding in some stuff that either prevents Imodane from being countered (maybe some counters of your own like Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast) when he's cast and/or stuff to protect him from (targeted) removal (the boots (Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots).

Also, I should point out that currently the deck has very few resources available to draw additional cards with. You can add some utility lands to help you out (Bonders' Enclave/Mikokoro, Center of the Sea/War Room) or maybe some more non-permanents (my favorites in mono-red include Seize the Spotlight/Valakut Awakening  Flip/Wheel of Misfortune)

Last but not least, would care to hear your thoughts on also including Braid of Fire. I'm thinking it might be worth it, considering the amount of damage-instants you're running.

Urabrask  Flip - bit more mana and damage, eventually can recast all those great spells from the graveyard. Blocks

Blast Zone - a bit of removal in the land base

Geier Reach Sanitarium - maybe loot away extra lands?

Mikokoro, Center of the Sea - not ideal, but mono-Red

Valakut Awakening  Flip - could take a land slot

Shatterskull Smashing  Flip - take a land slot and add more burn

Song-Mad Treachery  Flip - could take a land slot, could steal a big creature and get across the finish line. Expensive, but synergizes with all your instant- and sorcery-stuff

Imodane, the Pyrohammer - huge force multiplier! A win-con. Probably a must-include

Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might  Flip - another force-multiplier. Might be redundant though

Darb_the_Bard on Buttercup: Princess Bride

The deck can be built in a number of different ways, which is why it's so intriguing to me. I am not building around rats specifically since Rodents of Unusual Size cannot be tutored for with Buttercup (since it's not legendary), but if you want to do that, I say go for it! I have a Rat Colony deck with Marrow-Gnawer as the commander and it's a lot of fun.

I took out Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, and two of the weaker deathtouch creatures and swapped in Arcane Signet, Ornithopter of Paradise, Three Visits, and Garruk's Uprising. I also took out Valakut Awakening  Flip for a basic Mountain and Jwari Disruption  Flip for a basic Island. Not only will that improve Myriad Landscape, but it should also help out lands like Canopy Vista and Cinder Glade so they come into play untapped more reliably. Those "Forest" typed lands are also important so I can tutor for the color I need when I draw one of the key green ramp cards: Farseek, Nature's Lore and now Three Visits.

Optimator on Goblin Shenanigans (The Secret of Kiki Jiki)

Some cool lands to maybe think about for future upgrades:

Malakir Rebirth  Flip, Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Shatterskull Smashing  Flip, Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, Valakut Awakening  Flip, Castle Locthwain, Castle Embereth

Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, Blightstep Pathway  Flip, Auntie's Hovel

I think your Reliquary Tower might be a bit ambitious; maybe replace it with Goblin Burrows or Den of the Bugbear for flavor? or Westvale Abbey  Flip!! No shortage of tokens to sacrifice!
