Deadeye Tormentor Discussion

Deadeye Tracker, Deadeye Tormentor and Desperate Castaways are all pretty bad creatures. Grasping Scoundrel is a better 1 drop, Dire Fleet Poisoner is probably the best black pirate in standard right now, and id say Forerunner of the Coalition is a better alternative to Deadeye Tormentor
Im taking the treasure theme is to get Vraska or Dire fleet ravager out ahead of the curve?

I've currently also been playing with a discard themed deck, and I can tell you that one problem you might run into is actually having too many discard mechanics, and not enough to follow it up. With the amount of discard you have the your opponent is likely going to have an empty hand by turn 4 or 5, and at that point a lot of your cards become really underwhelming. What helps is mixing in some cards that punish them for having an empty hand.
Hyperalgialysis mentioned Torment of Scarabs which fits that slot pretty nicely. I would also consider going up to four Torment of Hailfires, it is a card that has worked wonders as a finisher for me, and I've seen it deal 10+ damage quite a few times.
I tried playing with Deadeye Tormentor but I found he was too much of an under performer. Making my opponent sometimes discard one did not make up for that fact that he was a 2/2 for 3.

I like the deck, especially as a first one. If I were to recommend anything I'd probably try to make the deck more consistent by taking out a few of the weaker cards such as Fire Shrine Keeper and then complete the playsets of other cards like Deadeye Tormentor. From what I can tell, your landbase looks good. Hope I helped!

I am looking at pirate builds, and I like what you have going.
If you own The Scarab God you may want him in there for more pirate recursion? He's expensive mana and dollar wise tho.
dive down , cheap way to protect your pirates, Storm Fleet Aerialist will probably come in as a 2/3 flyer, Deadeye Tormentor more discard against your opponent. Jut a few cards to look at.

Cool idea, Eonblue7.
Have you considered Kitesail Freebooter? Would give you an early game presence that could remove something from their hand... and by the time they kill it, you have more cards to force them to discard whatever they got back. Deadeye Tracker could eat the cards you've forced them to discard, giving you a body early, and a mana-sink late that helps you work through your deck.
Having a few more creatures would synergize with Raiders' Wake as well.
Sword-Point Diplomacy seems like it gives the opponent too many options. I'd personally rather play the cards above, or something like Dreamstealers, Scrapheap Scrounger or even Claim / Fame in that slot.
That way your only plan isn't discard punishment triggers... if it goes late game, they've managed to establish a threat, and don't have any cards to discard... You won't have to hope for a topdeck Hail-Mary.

Always like discard decks, but since you are running 4 Raiders' Wake (which has a very good design in my opinion because it rewards you for attacking) I think you should run more creatures. You even get only 7 creatures that come earlier than Deadeye Tormentor. Also, your curve is not that high, consider running 23-24 lands.
