well I take it this is built with a highly limited budget (if not then this is just straight up bad). Given that though here are some deck building tips for a "red deck."

1. In magic the "bang for your buck" philosophy is highly important. You really need to be getting your manas worth out of your cards. Things like stuffy doll, slumbering dragon, and a bunch of other high cost low impact cards need to go. For red decks focus on things that make an impact at a low cost.

2. Everything in your deck should be about damage output. Most red mages expect to get 3 or more damage out of every card they cast. Cards that are budget friendly that do this are things like lightning bolts, mog flunkies, rakdos cacklers, helspark elementals, ball lightnings and so on.

3. lower your curve. The curve is a concept in magic that basically means how your converted mana costs are distributed (i.e. lots of 2 drops a few 3's, and nothing that costs more then 4).

Hope that helps
