Cartouche of Zeal is in Standard and is EXACTLY the same as Hammerhand, which ZVCKK suggested.

My first question in an effort to help would be:What is your budget?Because that will drastically change what cards can be included in your deck.You are knew, so you probably don't want to spend all that much...but I assume nothing.Personally I like the challenge of a dirt cheap deck and work towards a cap of$25 USD.However most people in the MTG community consider anything below $100 "budget".

My second question is what do you want the deck to "do".Some decks work off of a specific card combo or mechanic - yours does not - which is fineBut you can still be more specific than red/blue pirates

Red can involve aggressive creatures, handy buffs or burn damageBlue can work around countering, bouncing, pacifying, tapping. and those are just forms of control.

Looking at your deck, you have a large number of cards getting you treasure-mana, but not a whole lot that uses all of that mana.

I would recommend removing Prosperous Pirates Sailor of Means Pirate's Prize

Get rid of Siren Lookout and find more Storm Fleet Aerialist

Get rid of Unknown Shores and instead use R/U lands such as Swiftwater Cliffs

consider replacing Swashbuckling with something like Madcap Skills or Hammerhand - madcap is a personal favorite, hammer hand gives you haste if you still want haste.

Sure Strike is good, but chances are you could do the same thing with a Shockthat is: killing the creature and leaving your's alive in a combat scenario.

3 mana is not worth having +2/+1 in my opinion. Probably don't bother with an equipment and go for an enchantment. or a buff instantthey are obviously less permanent and flexible, but they will do more damage/ give more power.

lastly I would suggest that you look for some blue instants. Because you don't have any really.Depending on what you want to do, either go for something like Claustrophobia so that you have a way of dealing with an opponent's 10/10, because your deck currently cant handle big creatures.

or go for a counter card. I know you have the siren for countering, but it can be targeted and killed. Counter-instants are a lot harder to deal with.

Keep in mind that I have a specific style of deck that I usually default toI tend to build aggressive decks.You may not want something of this style.That is something you will discover as you get more into mtg.

Cartouche of Zeal / Hammerhand is probably worth including. Better than Reflexes imo.

Foundry Street Denizen looks stupid if you're already getting craptons of tokens out with Crusader. Probably better than Bold Impaler?

i Really like it! maybe Assault Strobe over Hammerhand as it seems a bit lack-luster/out of place in here... but if hast is what your after than perhaps Expedite would be good due to the draw aspect... or maybe Lightning Greaves? +1 from me

So I'm thinking the Satyr Firedancer is getting side boarded fairly early, he doesn't add speed to the deck and though useful is restrictively a defensive card. It combos with Lightning Bolt Magma Jet and is a great combo with Browbeat but otherwise doesn't shine. I also have a play set of Hammerhand that I'm thinking for side boarding

Hi Adamaro! Rancor isn't good enough for it's price. I can get a lot of other things for 1 mana at a fraction of the price. It's "nice", but it's no Messenger's Speed, Hammerhand, Sigarda's Aid or Ethereal Armor. Not to mention there are many other sources of trample in the deck, plus with graveyard aura/enchantment recursion, it's extra ability is actually a downside. So it really doesn't offer much value.

I'm pretty hesitant about Dictate of Karametra. It's sole saving grace is flash, so I can bring it in before the end of the last player's turn. Zendikar Resurgent is there for the mana increase, the card draw is a small bonus.

Thank you for your suggestion! I actually play Mutagenic Growth in my Vintage Infect deck. I don't really know what I could swap out though. Hammerhand is just too important for this deck. Titan's Strength is just a little bit better for this deck, even though it costs one red, the additional +1 and scry are worth it. Dragon Mantle's card draw and mana sink are also too important and work really really well in this deck. Also, while being able to cast this pretty much for free also comes with a drawback. This deck has won by just one turn many times. Especially agains other aggro decks, there have been games that I would have lost if i spent just 2 more life. So I think this might be a great sideboard addition, but i will pass for now.

If you are referring to aura's than their are the Ordeal cycle from Theros, most notably Ordeal of Heliod. There are some decent haste enchantments such as Hammerhand or Cartouche of Zeal. I'll take a look on gatherer to see if I cant find an aura that gives counters other than the ordeal cycle.

As for non-aura's Hardened Scales if you already have the means to, Cathars' Crusade for continuos counters, Bow of Nylea can give counters, however most tend to be sorceries. A haste static enchantment would be Fervor.
