My sideboard is in the link above.

I considered putting a [Card]Carnage Gladiator[/card] in there but decided since everything else had Haste it didn't go together.
Hmm. Normally I have some sort of input to say for deck helps. But this seems pretty solid actually.

I don't have any recommendations, just a little advice: Be careful of people like me, who run things like Electrickery in their sideboard and main deck, pings like that can ruin you.

And all will know the wonder of my dark and jeweled sky, when all the world is wrapped in an eternal lullaby.

Rakdos cackler should go in the mainboard as your primary one drop, as a 2/2 gets the job done a lot better than a 1/1 haste, plus if you have exava out, he gets that bonus as well. Gore-house chainwalker is also a good two drop that gets better with exava, might replace the shred freaks, and lastly Hellhole flailer is another great 3 drop that you should consider.
Exava is kind of out of place here all your creatures have haste already and none of them have unleash. If you want speed go for Ball lightning or HellSpark Elemental maybe.

I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.

 2nded, I would suggest dropping exava for that carnage gladiator so that even once they get out defenders it will still hurt them and bring you that much closer to finnishing them off
ash zealot's anti-flashback ability is really metagame specific. Also, you don't have very many spells that will let your recur chandra's phoenix. Both creatures are solid beaters but if you do rakdos cackler and gore-house chainwalker they have more synergy with exava and beat pretty hard on their own besides.

I dunno what this deck needs really. Probably best to playtest and adjust accordingly.
Thanks for the feedback, I am trying to avoid using anything that rotates out in 3 weeks, so that is why I chose what I did. I will look into these suggestions and post an update soon.

Here's an update, I am open to thoughts.

Should I drop the Exava and replace it with the gore-house chainwalker? Or Hellhole Flailer?
I wouldn't drop her but since she is legendary you might go down to 3 copies.
What about dropping her to 2 and adding 2 Gore-House Chainwalker?
If you want to add chainwalker I would go 3 exava 3 carnage gladiator.
