I think your mana curve is a bit high, as well you seem to be sacrificing just to keep with the Izzet theme.

I have a few suggestions for cards, some are obvious and won't need explaination.

Lightning Bolt Buy
Shock Buy
Words of War Buy - Easily replaces Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Buy. He's a strong card but is just to slow.
Fork Buy or Twincast Buy
Brainstorm Buy - Good card you need more

Also with the amount of copies you can make you might wanna look in to something with Storm.

i think its a great deck if its a bit slow because of mana just put in some things like lotus petal or drain power to steal away some ones mana... but other than that i cant really think of any thing that would speed it up

I don't like Azami and the Supreme inquisitor because you don't have that many wizards in your deck.

Well...you got an average deck, here's why:

The mana curve is high, need more mana accel to bring your creatures, find some artifacts for this.
You have way too many singles, and that doesn't give you card consistency, i can relate to you, because i need lots of cards in my decks, but this is bad because you'll have difficulty drawing needed cards.
If you want burn, red has lots of it, and cheap, lightning bolt would be my primary choice, or piromancy to get rid of weenies. I don't see much of it in your deck.
I'll rate the playability and originaly based on this, since your deck isn't all that originall, you have good synergy, but gotta use burn, and be less controlish.

not too bad. few changed could be made (and i'm keepin gbudget in mind):

drop viashino fangtail for Prodigal Sorcerer Buy. the fantail has nice body, but it costs too much and it's ability is almost useless given it's size and mana cost. also, the sorcerer is a wizard, so that should help.

next up is azami. it's a neat card, but it just screams "KILL ME NOW!," and ppl often do, thus killing a creature and getting a free jester's cap. in her place, i would add land- preferably another izzet boilerworks.

last thing, i would up the land count to around 22. yur deck has some exspensive things, and u'll need atleast that much land to operate smoothly. maybe even some Seething Song Buy to get djinn out turn 5.

your mana curve is way too high for the amount of land you have...

OUT:
2 TwM
3 VFt
1 GA
2 Fw
1 FF
1 CE
1 Bs
1 CE
1 Mof
2 TT
2 Th

IN:
1 Book burning ( BB )
2 convolute
2 lat-nam's
2 OlE
1 ToT
3 Vm

Capital letters is the first letter of the first word. lower case is the first letter of the 2nd syllable. 2nd capital is first letter of 2nd word. 2nd lower case is last bit of word..

You do have 6 spaces left over just throw it in wizards where you need them. i started in creatures, then spells, then enchants.

the mana curve here really hurts, it's seriously slowing you down, and alot of singles for inconsistancy.

I'd recommend hitting the card shop and looking through the common boxes.

Seathing song can also really help here, I'd add at least 2, probably 3. You won;t need much burn but ig that's what you want toss in a couple of lightning bolts and 1-2 deamon fires as a finisher. (they come in real handy at times.)

It's not bad, and the Inquisitor is a great card when used right. I agree with points made on the mana curve. It really needs more consistency as well. Other than that, not bad.

Mindmoil and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, see if you can locate a few cards that allow you to draw more often. this get's you that combo out faster as well as speeds up your deck.

Try not to do too much at once.
