If you are heavy on mana and don't mind casting during your 2nd main phase, Dream Pillager works wonders.
Also Spinerock Knoll is a good source of card advantage, as it's insanely easy to meet the damage output requirement.
:) Red Dragons is sort of my specialty right now :3
And every single one of these is budget, so that's really cool as well. Oh, Mask of Memory is solid, too.
Personally, I prefer repeatable effects - E.G. permanents. Getting 1 card off it means you effectively "replaced" it, like a cantrip. Yes I know I'm using a loose comparison but like if I pay for Dragon's Hoard and get a Dragon (Bonus, the Dragon doesn't have to be nontoken) and I immediately use it to draw, it effectively became a cantrip. After that, it's value. Similarly, if I drop Spinerock Knoll as my land and move to combat where I deal 7+ damage, I can now get the exiled card. Again, 1 card gives access to 1 card. E.G., "cantrip", in a red-based method.
Personally I prefer what's called "impulse draw", in which you get until end of turn to cast the top card of your library after exiling it.

Hmm that is a pretty vague request. Card draw engines come in all shapes and sizes depending on your strategy. What type of deck are you trying to build? Regardless, here are some of my favorite general ones in each color:

If we fill the base areas (draw, removal and ramp) with humans, we can reduce the Homo Homini Lupus without losing trigger %, that's is aewsome because open slots for the cards on the maybe list.

My new favorite source of card draw in red is Furious Rise
It goes without saying that Shamanic Revelation is amazing, my copies have been the difference between winning and losing sometimes

Humble Defector - Khorvath's Fury - Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip - Tormenting Voice - Faithless Looting - Cathartic Reunion - Thrill of Possibility - Outpost Siege - Wild Guess - Shreds of Sanity - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Tamiyo's Journal - Seer's Sundial - Ghirapur Orrery - Loreseeker's Stone - Magnifying Glass
Not owned but worth considering:
I really like Chandra, Flamecaller. Seems like planeswalkers would be hard to defend though?

Wheel of Fate is great when you're able to dump out your hand. It basically gives you 4 turns to play your hand out so that you can draw the most amount of cards for it.
The only way I see Humble Defector working is if you can make a deal with someone to give it back to you. If you're confident you can do that, then go for it, but I don't quite like it.

Hiya! Are you running Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye for card draw? If so, can I suggest some better options? Both of those probably draw you about one extra card a turn, and they are 6 mana. Outpost Siege or Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip are 4 mana and impulsive draw you one extra card a turn. Prophetic Flamespeaker is a creature that holds equipment well because of the Double-Strike and also gets you impulsive draw. Reforge the Soul costs one less mana than the big artifacts and is a wheel effect (could cost you less if you are lucky and miracle it). Finally, if you're gonna be running 6 mana artifacts that draw you cards, go all out and do the The Immortal Sun. You don't have any Planeswalkers, and it does so much more than just draw you cards.
Hope this helps! I love Boros, so I'd always be glad to help if you need advice on card selection.
