Cat: A self-Summoning omni-Stratos for the archetype. It's amazing of course, but too blatant.

Exploder: Spell/Trap nuke counterpart for Scattershot. Looks fine to me, gives a way for Volcanics to stand against backrow decks.

Dragon: ATK is way too high for a semi-generic Rank4. Then again, a high ATK means it won't apply its ATK-boosting effect as often, hmm. Should be fine I guess. Other than that, looks like a good game finisher. The burn of the last effect may be a bit too high though, I shudder at the mere idea of taking 1600 damage from this guy destroying one of my Level4s. Maybe make it x200 to be safe.

Wyvern: Not a fan of spinning Volcanic cards into the Deck, that should be left to Firestorm Guards and the now unlimited Pot of Avarice. Spinning Blaze Accelerator cards is cool though, so that can stay and keep the draw power this card provides, but then it's more fair to make it draw only 1 card. 2 cards is  pushing it just because you can.

Power Blaze Accelerator: Mixed feeling towards this. Its on-field effect does what the float effect of Reload does, and this is more proactive and doesn't need to be sent to the GY like Reload does for the mill, but at the same time it's covering what Reload cannot do, and vice-versa. The second effect is more of icing on cake and goes with the dual-effect trait of Reload. I would say Volcanics want this card more than anything else in this set. heck, I dare say this card alone is enough to take Volcanics into a higher level.

Blazing Eruption: An archetype Reborn with an extra burn effect thrown in. Rather simple but still good. Plus it's searchable by Cat, that's the only edge it has over Monster Reborn and maybe Soul Charge.

Volcanic Guard: Not so useful. It's fine if it exists but I cannot picture Volcanic deck bothering with playing this.

Destruction: An archetype omni-Counter, Trap, what a surprise. It's only good because Cat can search it, otherwise it's no better than a Solemn Counter.

Overall, Power Blaze Accelerator is the MVP, you could have posted it alone and it would have been great support for Volcanics already. Exploder is nice at least as a side or meta call card, and Wyvern is a solid source of card advantage as long as it draws only 1 card. Dragon feels a bit overkill-ish but I don't consider as wrong to have a game finisher like it. Destruction and Blazing Eruption are mostly good because of Cat, but IMO Cat shouldn't be as flexible.

The only card that I feel really awkward about is Wyvern.  You've added some, but on the whole, Volcanics have 0 spam potential.  It'd be much more usable as a Link 1 (and then maybe follow that with a shuffle 3 draw 1 instead of 4 > 2).

I'm unsure about that. On one hand, we would be speaking of turning any Volcanic into an "Emeral" for an easy plus, and taking Firestorm Guard's job. If you want to buff it, I would rather make its materials more flexible and let it use either FIREs or Pyros, before turning it into a Link1.
And yet on the other hand, it would require at least 3 Volcanics in the GY for the draw so it's not as live. And plusing Link1s shouldn't exactly be avoided at all times or frowned upon, as some archetypes do have them, like Marincess and Magical Musket, which aren't breaking anything, at least not at the time being.
