The biggest things you can pitch to power up Blazing Shoal to the extreme have all CMC 10:
Decree of Annihilation, Dragon Tyrant, Greater Gargadon, Myojin of Infinite Rage, Progenitus, Reaper King
With Painter's Servant you could also use Draco or Gleemax.

1st turn (albeit unlikely) win;
-Play a Swamp, tap for black mana
-Cast Dark Ritual
-Cast Ornithopter (or other 0 cmc creature)
-Cast Lightning Greaves
-Cast Tainted Strike, targeting Ornithopter
-Cast Blazing Shoal, exiling Progenitus (or other cmc > 9 red card)
-Equip Ornithopter with Lightning Greaves and swing for the win :)

banned in Modern?

It looks incredibly powerful, I understand the Infect combo...I'm trying to find a way justify keeping this, and banning something else...I don't see it. Yeah, broken in Modern. Which is kind of a shame. This is a really neat card that can be used with plenty of fair strategies. Infect + Red is just asking for trouble, though. I wish the Pros had a bit more soul, and would play only cards that were meant to be played together, rather than ruining deck designer's dreams with fast combos.

I'm an insane Johnny, I understand the appeal of combos, and going infinite, and breaking things in half- but I prefer the convoluted kind that rarely ever work, and therefore provide extra "What. the. ***. ?!!?" value to the moment when you win. The fast combos are boring.

At the risk of losing stars, if it looks like something out of the Yu-Gi-Oh! show (I know, I know....but that cartoon made it fun to watch card games. For me anyway. I loved that show. Particular... (see all)

For those who're truly evil, uses Rakdos Pit Dragon. Why? Because Blazing Shoal allow you to remove cards in your hands to achieve Pit Dragon's Hellbent efficiently with benefits.

if you actually read the card in question, you'd see that the card is exiled, not discarded.

Revealing a Chancellor of the Forge and then -d-i-s-c-a-r-d-i-n-g- exiling it to Shoal your 1/1 hasted critter for +7 is pretty cool. (Alright then, MrFrostM. It's fixed. There's no need to be an ass about it.)

With a Painter's Servant in play you can discard a Draco to Blazing Shoal for +16, or discard an Emrakul for +15.

Surprises the heck out of anyone expecting you to play a Grindstone, that's for sure.

1st turn = Raging Goblin + Blazing Shoal (Myojin of Infinite Rage) + Blazing Shoal (Myojin of Infinite Rage) = Win. This was Standard legal for a while....

Can't help but say this: Wish Autochthon Wurm was red.
