Misstyped; meant Searing Blaze, whoops.

Some suggestions for you that you might be interested in:
Raid Bombardment - This will act similarly to Orcish Oriflamme, should always trigger on each of your tokens provided you sequence your anthem buff spells correctly, and does the damage directly to get around blockers / fogs.
Flame Slash - Strictly better than Boulder Salvo.
Guardians' Pledge - Pretty good anthem effect, possibly situationally better than Rally the Forces or Rally the Righteous.
Aftershock - This one may be too cute, but, short of doing a ton of damage to something, you don't have a way to outright destroy a creature. This does that, and will trigger the commander, too. It may be better to just run Oblivion Ring, but I've found it to be very useful.
Chain Lightning - More flexible than Lava Spike. Can trigger Blaze Commando more than once if your opponent messes up (never send a chain lightning back if the caster has RR open ;) ). Actually, in paper, it costs less $$, too!

Well it seems like you are running pirate aggro which I am not too big of a fan on, but it works i guess. I think that you need to narrow down your list of pirates to just a few, since your deck looks a little inconsistent. For your instants and sorceries, you should add in a few counterspells Spell Pierce, Mana Leak, Cryptic Command, Remand) and burn cards(Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, Lava Spike, Flame Slash) for a more midrange deck so that your pirates(which start kinda slow) to take over the game. Also in this deck, I would definitely bring your amount of lands to at least 20+, and if you wanted to make this deck a lot better, you can put in a couple Steam Vents and Scalding Tarn to help your deck get more consistent. Another tip is to buy singles instead of a box when you are building a deck. This website has plenty of great budget decks that you can build without hardly breaking the back. An example I can straight up think of us Here Comes the Boom! (Featured in Daily MTG!), and a deck that I saw that was $20, infect, and could win on turn 2. Overall, this deck isn't too bad, and I can see some great improvements that would make it good :)

hmm. those be good cards. here's what i think:
Ball Lightning is cheap, is strong, has both trample and haste. downside is it's good for only one turn. but i do see your reason for Blood Lust. the Ball Lightning becomes a 10/1 with Trample and Haste and with it being an instant you can trigger it anytime you want. however a better instant, if you can find one, is Enrage. with that card you can choose how strong to make Ball Lightning. and with 21 mountains each producing triple mana you can pour a ton of mana into Enrage to make the Ball Lightning even more powerful.

hmm. here's what i suggest:
-2 Mana Flare (overkill for mana ramp. you only need 2 to have lands triple mana production. any higher and it's a flood.)
-2 Shivan Dragon (they guzzle up your mana which could be spent on better burns)
-4 Blood Lust (they aren't helping you out with burns)
+3 Chain Lightning (excellent burn card that can bounce)
+3 Mountain (extra mana)

I will do the 2 Bloodstained Mires and the 1 Wooded Foothills for the Invocation Counterspell. I just realized that the foothills was from Onslaught. Lol I feel like an idiot. Think you could throw in that Chain Lightning to sweeten the pot? If not, no worries!

Great looking list! Few suggestions:
Braid of Fire your general during the upkeep
Satyr Firedancer great with Repercussion.
Magus of the Moon blood moon #2
Guttersnipe good value in a list like this.
