I had a deck a few years ago, basically it was based around this, Rift elemental and arc blade for an insane amount of damage, with losts of Elemental tribal to make it easier to pull off, and flamekin brawler as an alternative outlet. This deck was pretty effective even when I occasionally had to take mana burn. Now, it'd be even better.

One of my favorite cards I used this in a Leyline of Anticipation upkeep suspend deck to hard cast emrakul
Basically I used paradox haze and reality strobe to just bounce everything back to my opponents hand and gelectrode and arc blade to kill everything they had. it is a long process but it was a fun deck to play.

@ Mid_Squad: I just came up with a similar idea. It's not mono-red, but it's a teeny bit faster.

T1: Island, Training Grounds
T2: Mountain, Soulbright Flamekin
T3: Because of Training Grounds, now Soulbright's ability only costs {1}, so you play another land, activate the ability three times, and voila, you have the same 8 red mana.

It completely ignores Braid of Fire, but oh well. Braid of Fire is good, in my opinion, but only for instants, which luckily red has tons of.

Combos with taking your turn. And Earthen Goo.

What do you do when mana burn is gone?
Do your hair like a hippie and cast fireball

Autoinclude for a Rosheen Meanderer Commander deck, with all of those X spells wandering about.

What's that Olivia Voldaren? You say you need more mana to ping things and grow bigger with? Why yes, i have something like that right here!

In all seriousness, Olivia Voldaren is a stupid enough general without something like this enabling absolutely degenerate things.

Since M10, this is indeed a nice card.
Either spend the mana for instants in burn decks, activated abilities, or pay upkeep costs, including those from cultimative upkeep cost since they can equate each other,
for example Brand of Ill Omen, Earthen Goo, Halls of Mist, Heat Wave and Magmatic Core.
Further cultimative upkeep cards of other colors that can make use of this include: Hibernation's End, Wave of Terror, Musician, Corrosion, Elephant Grass, Energy Storm, Fyndhorn Pollen, Kjeldoran Javelineer, Malignant Growth, Mesmeric Trance, Mystic Remora, Prismatic Circle and Revered Unicorn.

I'd be tempted to use it with Oona, Queen of the Fae. You know, for massive ownage.
