Your welcome!

If you only need those two cards, you can think of a combo that you don't actually like or that you don't want to use. You can remove Mindslaver and maybe a tutor... or Copy Artifact. One easy card to remove is Dire Fleet Daredevil. I love it because is unexpected and can be useful in many unpredictable ways, but it's not necessary and can be replaced with any card.

Hey, good start, nice Dockside Extortionist and Vampiric Tutor :)

Consider more one/two drop Pirates especially ones with flying? More overall one/two drop Pirates helps to assemble a battlefield of Pirates to attack the turn you play Brass.

Forerunner of the Coalition is a Pirate tutor and it can also be a repeatable source opponents' lose life when a Pirate ETB. Ruin Raider can be repeatable draw at your end step with attacking Pirates. Anger and Wonder are good with Pirates especially Wonder giving them flying evasion. Giving all your Pirates including Brass flying can be a win condition with attacking Pirates. Brass is much better when she has haste letting her attack the turn you cast her. Pirates who can attack the turn you play them can help to trigger Brass's gain control ability quicker.

Buried Alive can tutor for both Anger/Wonder as well as one other creature and put them all into your graveyard. Can also use Buried with Phyrexian Reclamation and/or March of the Drowned as a way to tutor for Pirates put them into your graveyard and then recur them to your hand. Reclamation can be helpful repeatable recursion for Pirates since Pirates are going to die over the course of a game.

Marchesa, the Black Rose is not a Pirate, but she can be a repeatable source of reanimating Pirates. Dethrone is an attacking ability where as if a Pirate attacks your opponent with the most amount of life then that Pirate gets a +1/+1 counter. With Marchesa if that Pirate dies then it will come back to the battlefield at your end step. Metallic Mimic is a Pirate when it ETB who interacts well with Marchesa since Mimic can put a +1/+1 counter on another Pirate when it ETB.


Adding some more ramp can help game play:

Some budget lands (each $5 or less) to consider adding:

These are budget land options, but of course there's many other better options for lands that are more expensive.

Good luck with your deck.

Snapcaster Mage aka. snappy or snap,
Torrential Gearhulk aka. fatcaster mage,
Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip aka. snapcaster JACE,
Google seems to know at least those...

However the community needs to find some creative name for the red snapcaster clones Dire Fleet Daredevil & Dreadhorde Arcanist.

defendingfaithx, I don't think those two are mutually exclusive. While Robber of the Rich can get you good cards, they are essentially just random unless you can swing in after an opponent just tutored something off of the top of their library.

Dire Fleet Daredevil gives you choice selection from opponents graveyards, which in this meta should give you access to tutors, cantrips, and other value that you can select.

While this whole deck has a fast roll the dice vibe, I think Robber of the Rich is just a wild gamble.

Granted I've only been piloting this deck for 4 months. Still I would be hesitant to make that change.

I'm definitely not a very enfranchised player, but I built a similar deck- Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is bonkers. Thrun, the Last Troll is the bane of all control players. I think Lightning Bolt should be in here. I'm a big fan of Hazoret the Fervent. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon END GAMES. I like Dragonlord Atarka. My version was little heavier on dorks, and really relied on the three drops in the deck. Scavenging Ooze is really good, I think it deserves a slot. Dire Fleet Daredevil never gets the love she deserves, but this is an excellent home for her.

I'm not sure I understand the inclusion of Mastermind's Acquisition and Possibility Storm in an otherwise low-to-the-ground taxes deck, but I do like the idea. If I'm not missing a kind of game-ending combo there, I would suggest going up on Thalia, Heretic Cathars (to maybe 3?).

Some other humans you might like:

Abbot of Keral Keep - card advantage!
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death - recur your Freebooters, Thraben Inspectors, Lieutenants... could be a lot of good value, and goes well with General's Enforcer!
Dauntless Bodyguard - it's aggressive and protects key cards like Lieutenant and Kudro.
Knight of the White Orchid
Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip
Gideon of the Trials - particularly good against Inverter combo Mardu Skullhunter
Order of Midnight
Sin Collector
Stormfist Crusader
Tithe Taker - classic Taxes-type human!
Tomik, Distinguished Advokist - aggressive and very good against Lotus combo .

Some sideboard possibilties:
Arashin Cleric
Banisher Priest
Charming Prince
Dire Fleet Daredevil
Dragonmaster Outcast
Fiendslayer Paladin
Giant Killer
Harsh Mentor
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Lantern Scout
Robber of the Rich
Tocatli Honor Guard - obviously you'd have to side out the Freebooters, but this is very good against Inverter

After doing all this research I'm also inspired, so I might make my own list. :)

We should talk more in-depth about your list later, Scarecrow. Here are some initial thoughts I have:

Cards that probably should be in here but aren't

Cards that don't seem super fantastic in here

I think the biggest thing this list would benefit from is a thorough reevaluation of your gameplan. After you've got a solid idea of how you want your games to play out, ask yourself what each color contributes to that gameplan and why you're playing it over another color/more of a color you're already in. That will allow you to adjust your inclusions accordingly and have a better focus within your list.

More than happy to clarify stuff/go over this with you later if you want :D.
