Admiral Beckett Brass Discussion

Argy I have tried Admiral Beckett Brass and found it is not very good due to the fact that the biggest weakness right now is Deafening Clarion and Admiral Beckett Brass requires a lot of pirates. In addition as a sort of tempo deck I prefer Dreamcaller Siren because it has flash. I will test out Fight with Fire and Banefire. I have not had a big need for a bigger play than a four drop but I am considering looking into it, when I built this deck I was very focused on the power of Pirates and only put Pirates into the deck, but I am open to ideas.

You've got nothing at the top end of your curve so all your Opponent needs to do is keep your early game under control and they soon end up with Creatures large enough to block without trading.
If they have a couple of large fliers you end up not being able to hold them off for very long.
Have you tested with Admiral Beckett Brass, since you are in Grixis colours?
My partner StuBi and I did muck around with a Pirate brew but found we could only make it work with The Scarab God in the mix. Unfortunately you no longer have that card in Standard, or even Torrential Gearhulk.
You need to work out a Creature that comes out for either 5 or 6 CMC that will basically mean game over for your Opponent.

Interesting list! Its giving me ideas for my own piratey build The Crew of the Black Pearl: Dimir Piracy [GRN]
Also if there is a build for Admiral Beckett Brass, this might be it...c'mon you know you want to splash for it.

What kind of budget are we talking?
Your second to last paragraph screams Muldrotha, the Gravetide to me (probably biased because that's what I'm building). You're constantly re-using your permanents and removal, and you can run things like Hostage Taker and Kheru Spellsnatcher to steal opponent's things, and then reuse them!
Do any of those sound appealing?

Leodragon67890 That's a pretty good idea. I've been meaning to build another pirate deck. Not sure what exactly its going to be. All I know is its going to have some ships (cause a pirate isn't a pirate without a pirate ship) and Admiral Beckett Brass. Its a neat card.

What about Brawl to deal damage to your opponent's creatures and gain control of them because of Admiral Beckett Brass? You could do the same with cards such as Electropotence, Fall of the Hammer, Tail Slash, etc.

...& by that, I mean an underrated commander that can hold their own in some way possible...
I was thinking of doing 1 of 3 of the following...
1: (Apparently there are little good for Mono- in minority standards.
2: Xantcha, Sleeper Agent forced politics.
3: Wait until my other decks are complete.
4: Be Arcana Tarot 0, & get back to (I'll wait for GRN.).
5: An ULTRA-CUTTHROAT Mayael the Anima Deck that cheats so much into play to the point of lockdown.
I'd like your thoughts on this, as I wanted to do something different from all others while breaking out of the crowd. Please make your descision, everyone...

Why no Admiral Beckett Brass? He's a bad M.F.er!
