Feed the Swarm is pretty cheap and versatile removal to consider. Fact or Fiction or Read the Bones or even Altar's Reap might also be nice as it seems card draw might be a bit weak Thoughtcast is even better I bet with the Treasure synergies. Murder or Doom Blade or Tragic Slip or Price of Fame or Defile or Cast Down or Drag to the Underworld might also be nice to deal with enemy threats or blockers. Force of Despair is another good cheap effect that can help push through for attacks. Costly Plunder turns a treasure into cards which is nice and on theme. Profane Command is also surprisingly cheap for the versatility. Damnable Pact is neat as you can target an opponent to deal lethal or yourself to draw. Cranial Plating is a pretty awesome equipment with treasure too. Armix, Filigree Thrasher although not a pirate, has a cool synergy with treasures. AEtherize is a neat wrath effect that is cheap. Memory Lapse and Unsubstantiate is a counterspell that feels less controlling since they keep the card. Tolarian Winds is a one sided Windfall which is interesting. Thassa's Intervention is another potential counterspell that doesn't feel so controlling. Distant Melody is also probably a great card given all the Pirates. Merchant's Dockhand interacts nicely with Treasures.

Magmastorm: Nice, thanks! Your assessment of Bloodbriar's weakness are pretty spot on, in addition to the fact that "Brian" (as our little playgroup refers to him) can't actually win a game on his own. He needs trample, or pro-color, or unblockable, or Fling or something else in combination with it to actually close out a game. Regardless, I enjoy building around and playing the card, so I keep doing it.
It honestly comes down to the fact that we liked sacrifice themed decks, and Bloodbriar inspired us to build a whole crapload of them. I feel like in a lot of my Brian decks, he could be taken out, replaced with something more synergetic with everything else and the deck could be made better... but that's not the point. The point is I want to play this weird-ass, off-color, "sacrifice-tribal" enabler card and see how big I get it and how fast. XP :D
But an Atog and Brian deck sounds cool. Maybe Fling em both? If you do make it, definitely let me see it. =D
I just swapped Hunger of the Howlpack out for Burst of Strength, actually. However I've now realized that Costly Plunder is the only way I can crack Ichor Wellspring for that second card, so... looks like I found a spot for Hunger, again! Thanks a lot!
