Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, remove it from the game instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard.

Ooooo I like a LOT.
I have a few suggestions:
Hostage Taker is AMAZING when flickered, as you can keep strealing and playing Creatures, even Indestructible ones.
Deadeye Navigator would help you do this, and it's name is flavorful for Pirates.
Metallic Mimic would give you an excellent early play. It's costly to buy at the moment, but will drop in price when it rotates out. I like early plays in EDH that help to establish a strong board, as nothing much is going on for those Turns.
You have no Counter spells, when there are some VERY good ones that cost peanuts.
River's Rebuke is a nice card for interrupting one of your your Opponent's tempo, and putting you in the driving seat. Crush of Tentacles is also good, and suits the flavour. If you were going to use that card you might want some stuff in your deck that gives you no maximum hand size.
Tezzeret the Schemer looks like a Pirate, as far as I am concerned, and can help to Ramp. His Emblem would be fantastic in this deck, with all the Artifact generation you have.
That's all I have.
+1 from me for the Tribe.
Here's my standard version:
Ahoy, Me Hearties!

Hi felow EDH player, I noticed you are low on ramp fro a deck you need to go to late game, i would suggest you to play more mana rocks, counting the simulcrum as ram, you should have at least 8-10 source that can help you reach turn 4 wrath of god consistently., also i would suggest to have 6 wrath efects, and very notably, Terminus as you can force a miracle with your tutors and there is nothing but Teferi's Protection that can save you from that. Also i suggest Sphinx's Revelation can be veeeery helpfull to use taht extra mana. also Remove that Cancel from the list, and ad any other 3 mana counter with an extra efect Dissolve, Dissipate,Disallow even Negate is better, obviously if you can get Force of Will or Mana Drain, that would be the best escenario. As for the lands try to keep them simplier, there will be a day you meet Blood Moon and things will be horrible, brush of lands like Riptide Laboratory and High Market wich are to specific and wont provide consistent use. Thats all for now, i hope this is usefull to you, see ya :D

I like the idea of Dissolve, I think I will do that change. I like the idea of Dissipate and Void Shatter because of their ability to exile cards from the opponent's deck, but I may just leave one of those in my Sideboard.
I was considering Foresee when I was drafting this, but I am not too keen on the cost. However, I may go for that in lieu of Augur of Bolas. While Augur lets me have that one sorcery, throwing the rest of (potentially useful) cards to the bottom of the deck can be annoying. Scry at least lets me choose. Jace's Sanctum is cool, but doesn't combo with Talrand well, and I am not sure what to cut for that.

Really cool idea! A budget yet competent version of the real thing. I have a few suggestions, such as swaping Dissipate with Dissolve because it gives you scry, which improves the chances of you drawing Talrand, Sky Summoner, maybe Foresee for the same reason, and you have the Goblin Electromancer to reduce the mana cost, or a Jace's Sanctum. You get the idea, I think scry would benefit this deck a lot. Magma Jet is also a strong option. Other than that I'll check your deck further and then post again with more opinions. +1!

Whirler Rogue is a lot better than Urbis Protector here. While it creates less raw power, it's also cheaper and the fact that it can make Brago unblockable is very important.
Vessel of Endless Rest is a mana rock with a relevant enters-the-battlefield trigger, I like that more than Seashell Cameo.
I am really no fan of counterspells that cost more than 2 in a deck with so many expensive creatures etc - you just can't keep up three mana for Cancel or Dissipate to protect Brago when you also want to cast spells like Medomai the Ageless. At least Render Silent comes with a nice upside, but the other 3cmc counters I would replace with cheaper alternatives like Negate or Dispel - while weaker overall, they protect Brago quite well, and that's their most important job. If he lives, you should be in great shape.

I still think Green Sun is strong enough to be in this deck.
Fierce empath should also definitely be in here.
I'd cut back on some of the least well performing counter spells. Dissipate comes to mind, as does Rewind

Cancel is a terrible card even in a budget deck. Every other 3-mana counterspell is strictly better than it (Dissipate, Dissolve, Disallow, Hinder, Psychic Strike), and you should be playing only 1/2-mana counterspells anyway (Remand and Spell Snare may be a bit too expensive for your deck, but Mana Leak is pretty cheap).
And you really shouldn't play 5- and 6-mana cards in a deck that has only 22 lands, some of which ETB tapped. Decks that want to hit every land drop in the first 5 or 6 turns need to play 24-26 lands (but honestly, I think you should just drop Liliana and Oona and add more removal in their place. They're too weak for their mana cost)
