Have you had much luck with mainboard Knight of Autumn, Dire Fleet Daredevil, and Kraul Harpooner?

Would also suggest Dire Fleet Daredevil over Fanatical Firebrand, lets you both cast spell they discard and can crew Fell Flagship.

I have some suggestions then.

Trumpet Blast can be a nice finisher since you're spreading on the board.

Risk Factor is both nice for the burn or to refill your hand when the op is low.

Experimental Frenzy if the game gets to a topdeck contest.

Rekindling Phoenix is out of the goblin theme but it is a nice reccuring threat.

Dire Fleet Daredevil could do some work but I don't know how much good it is without other synergies ( pirate ). I'm playtesting it in my mono-red but it is not gamebreaker yet.

@ vaperowned: Hey, thanks for the comments!

First item: Experimental Frenzy is actually very good in the deck. We don't have much of an issue when it comes to mana, and our curve is low enough to make good use of the card. This will only get better when we get Blood Crypt next set. Vanquisher's Banner is too expensive mana-wise, and we have other forms of card advantage anyway. Radiant Destiny isn't in our colors and were won't be able to afford to splash for it.

As for Dire Fleet Poisoner...there's nothing to fix here other than to further specify that we'd need to give deathtouch to an attacking Pirate that also has first strike (so, Rigging Runner or Dire Fleet Daredevil. Yes, Lyra Dawnbringer has flying, so the trade would not be via a surprise block. Remember, the Poisoner can only give an attacking Pirate deathtouch, so I'm talking about a surprise trade for when we attack into a Lyra with a first strike Pirate. If Lyra blocks, we can flash this in to give whatever she's blocking deathtouch. As long as it's a Rigging Runner or a Dire Fleet Daredevil, they will hit each other and Lyra will die to deathtouch. Correct, we will not be trading with a Lyra when we are the ones blocking (that's not what I was referring to) — only when we are the ones attacking will we be looking to offer a surprise trade with a Lyra via a Pirate with first strike. Should have been clearer about that.

Love the Concept - were I not already running squee as my dedicated mono-red general, Feldon would have been a close 2nd.

a couple of things - I don't think Deal Broker can be run in any non-drafted format, and you're running mono red without running this guy.

Minor tweeks I would recommend are Crucible of Worlds to pair with your Ghost Quarter and Hammer of Purphoros.

Darksteel Forge and Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient are nice combo pieces for artifacts. Red alo means you can run Flametongue Kavu, Demanding Dragon, Conquering Manticore, and Dire Fleet Daredevil as possible "reanimation" targets

Hey, good ideas, but consider going bigger?

Consider Legion Warboss, Siege-Gang Commander and Experimental Frenzy? The Goblins work well to bring a go wide strategy with Steam-Kin and Frenzy is a busted card advantage engine for red especially with Steam-Kin.

Consider this example:

Other Spells

Good sideboard cards to consider are: Banefire (control), Fight with Fire (Lyra Dawnbringer), Lightning Mare (control), Fiery Cannonade (aggro and tokens), Shivan Fire (Llanowar Elves), Risk Factor (control), Dire Fleet Daredevil, Sorcerous Spyglass (Planeswalkers), Sentinel Totem (Golgari).

Good luck with your deck.

I don't think you want Vraska in here. It's the only green card, meaning it hurts your mana to have the cemetery's in here for it. Additionally, pirates tend to be more of a tempo based deck, which a 6 drop walker doesn't fit well with. Since everything besides that is 4 mana or below, I'd cut down to 22 lands, and replace all 4 cards with Deadeye Tracker. It's a pirate, it's a 1 drop, it's incidental graveyard hate, it filters your draws or helps make land drops, and it's a mana sink alongside Fathom Fleet Captain and Dire Fleet Daredevil. Like the deck

Yes, Thanks i saw a few builds on goldfish too, this 1 is a try to make use of 4 of my 5 Rekindling Phoenix... the 3rd place looks good tho, swapping in Phoenix for Siege gang, Dire Fleet Daredevil for Goblin Instigator,... Hmm
