Gonti, Lord of Luxury

Legendary Creature — Aetherborn Rogue

Deathtouch

When Gonti, Lord of Luxury enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of target opponent's library, exile one of them face down, then put the rest on the bottom of that library in a random order. For as long as that card remains exiled, you may look at it, you may cast it, and your may spend mana as though it were mana of any type to cast it.

Filth - great vs all those decks that run black or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts - Wrath, ok all your lands are now creatures

I actually ran Ritual of the Machine in my Gonti, Lord of Luxury deck before I scraped it.

Hey, 2x Deeproot Champion is not enough to matter. You want this card turn two and that won't happen consistently enough playing only two. Consider cutting it for Walking Ballista because of it's interaction with Ripjaw Raptor and great overall versatility.

22x lands is not enough land when playing 9x six drops and no Attune with Aether or Commune with Dinosaurs. You're going to want 24-25x lands here. Consider cutting Sword-Point Diplomacy for 2x more Evolving Wilds since it helps to trigger revolt for Fatal Push. A 9x and 7x pairing of basic lands is also kind of risky. You risk drawing only one color, but adding more Wilds can improve the chances of having the right color land. Don't expect to get Drover of the Mighty every game turn two and also don't count on it living to actually ramp you. Unfortunately you're counting on Drover's ramp too much for the deck to function.

You're relying on your six drops Tyrant, Vraska, Noxious to be win conditions which is a great variety, but you need to stay alive long enough to cast them. I recommend building an early game defense with Narnam Renegade, Gifted Aetherborn and Gonti, Lord of Luxury. This deathtouch defense will buy you time to get six mana to play your big spells. Something like a 4x, 3x, 2x split between the three. Bone Picker is not reliable enough to use as a defensive creature in the early game when you need it. If you could always cast it for one mana than it's great, but for four mana it's very lackluster.

Good luck with your deck.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is like Hostage Taker with the pro of deathtouch but the con of being legendary.

I think this style of deck could be fun if you added more of a pirating theme than a pirate theme. "All of your creatures are belong to me" type deal. Admiral Brass already steals people's cards when you hit with a lot of pirates, so you really could take that and run. Captivating Crew is the first pirate that comes to mind for that, but you also have flavorful cards like Blatant Thievery and you have other Control Magic effects available to you, as well as other fun cards like Slave of Bolas and Insurrection effects. You already have quite a few cards that are good for that strategy, so it might be fun. Also, with Arcane Adaptation you can run other non-pirates more freely and still get brass' triggers, such as Gonti, Lord of Luxury. One last idea is cards to take peoples' spells, such as Insidious Will, or Praetor's Grasp? I think it could be fun, though your current list still looks pretty solid

Silent Arbiter can slow your opponents down. Some other cards you might want to add so you can really limit options for your opponents. Gonti, Lord of Luxury can swipe spells from your opponents, as would both Sadistic Sacrament and Praetor's Grasp. Nirkana Revenant would double your black mana production so you can use more spells.

I like the way this is looking dude!! I think the interactions between Rampaging Ferocidon and Kinjalli's Sunwing a lot to shut down both lifegain and Aggro, and i love the sheer power of Angel of Condemnation and Gonti, Lord of Luxury just stealing your opponents best cards. I'm going to build this I think.

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury might be a card to consider.
