ShadowHawkIII on treasure black

You dont actually have many treasures in this deck, it looks more like a normal black aggressive damage deck, there are some great pirates that make treasures in black Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer, and some other black spells that grant you treasures Contract Killing, the most obvious being Revel in Riches. The equipment Prying Blade also gives you treasures when you attack. Seeing how expensive your deck already is, it shouldnt be too difficult to get a hold on those black Ixalan cards for even more treasures.

Yeah, as MuhfuxinHanSolo89 says, you're definitely going to want to include a few more lands. I'd get rid of all your Depths of Desire and Contract Killing, and one Revel in Riches, to make room. It would also be a REALLY good idea to run some board clears, both to keep the pressure off and to synergise with Revel. Bontu's Last Reckoning and Yahenni's Expertise are worth considering, as are Sweltering Suns Hour of Devastation, but if you go with those last two you MUST include a lot more red sources, at least 10.

Finally, swap those Cancels out for Disallows if you have the budget, but I wouldn't worry too much about that. Please let me know how this deck goes for you, I've got a massive soft spot for Revel as a wincon :)

I recommend Cut / Ribbons replacing Contract Killing, and Pirate's Pillage to replace Pirate's Prize.

I'd recommend using Gleaming Barrier over Wily Goblin for an early game option. It'll slow them down more giving you more time to setup and counter the early plays also it's not double red so it a guaranteed to come out turn 2 on. Instead of Deadeye Plunderers , Spell Swindle , Prosperous Pirates , or even another Contract Killing will do you more good than the Deadeye Plunderers.(his lack of evasion is very saddening, they shoulda made like a pay 4 give him flying instead of treasures).

I will say I like your use of Release the Gremlins a very different route than expected. Another option if you'd entertain it could be Cut / Ribbons for Ribbons. Decent early removal and late game direct loss of life payout if you don't hit Marionette Master or Torment of Hailfire. (it usually catches people of guard hiding in the graveyard.

If you want any other idea feel free to look at my treasure deck.

Ruthless Knave is great for sac outlet on the hoarders.

Marionette Master is also stupid busted if you can sac all your treasures at once.

I'd probably drop Contract Killing for Fatal Push and maybe grab Claim over Skullduggery and Vanquish the Weak

DemonDragonJ, you must be disappointed every set then - Contract Killing, Lethal Sting, Torment of Venom, Vanquish the Weak, Tidy Conclusion, Certain Death, Murderous Compulsion are all worse cards than the ones you listed, in just the last year. It is almost as if Wizards prints removal like that based on the needs of the Limited environment in the set.
