Latest Decks as Commander
Panic Attack Discussion

I LOVE this deck! Lol we both have pirate decks with “Booty” in the name. If you are interested check mine out here.
My theme, while also pirates, only focuses on the pirates with ETB effects since they synergize better with Marchesa. I really wanted to use Beckett Brass which is who I started out as with commander but I couldn’t make the deck play well enough. I like your build a lot more than what I had when I was using BB. Just some thoughts to help make your pirates more elusive: Panic Attack , Outmaneuver , Wave of Indifference , Nemesis Mask , and Breaker of Armies type effects should work pretty well. Obviously a card like Panic Attack isn’t great but just trying to suggest something different. In the vein of Coat of Arms there is also Shared Animosity . Kindred Discovery is great draw for a deck like this too!
Awesome deck! +1

That is if you decide to follow with Marchesa as commander. If you go the route of Beckett Brass, I think you then need some things like Nemesis Mask , Demoralize , Panic Attack , Outmaneuver ... things that help your creatures become harder to block. Also, more shapeshifters could be a good thing (i.e. Dack's Duplicate , Protean Raider , Clever Impersonator etc.).
Also, because a good amount of pirates create treasures and so do some other flavorful Ixalan sorceries, instants, artifacts... it probably would save you some slots to not run things like Chromatic Lantern since treasures are technically mana fixers.
Hope that helps! Feel free to ask for more input. I love the Ixalan-Pirates theme.

For another wincon you'll definitely want a Mechanized Production.

I love the pirate archetype! And you appear to have done it justice. I used to run BB (Mom) as my commander but it was moving rather slow so I hope your version is better than what I had with BB. I ended up changing my commander to Marchesa and i've loved the synergy of the deck much more (instead of unblockable pirates I strickly picked all the ones that have ETBs or raid).
If you're going for the unblockable since Mom is your commander I'd recommend Outmaneuver, Demoralize, Panic Attack, and Bedlam. This may be a bit borderline but possibly think of using Arcane Adaptation just to make those 4-6 creatures that aren't pirates, pirates. Plus with Forerunner of the Coalition you could tutor for any creature. Obviously not all those cards may work for you but something to think about!
I love the fact your deck has Door of the Destinies in it too! I run that in my Zombs tribal, and never really thought of running it in pirates but it makes just as much sense as any to use it here.
Also interesting you run mostly non-basics. What's the reasoning behind that?

Rando sorcery suggestions. I'm not sure if mechanics work the way I assume, so some of these may be worse or better than I initially assumed. Press into Service, Chandra's Ignition, Seize the Day, Rekindled Flame, Panic Attack, Make Mischief, Heat Shimmer, Harness by Force, Wave of Indifference, Firestorm, Assault Strobe, Collective Defiance, Needle Drop, Aleatory.

Steal effects! With all your sac outlets, they're great. Zealous Conscripts, Conquering Manticore, Helm of Possession, and Molten Primordial are all awesome. And the king: Insurrection, winner of games.
Speaking of sac outlets: Bosh, Iron Golem can throw Feldon's tokens, which keep their CMC. Altar of Dementia does a lot of work. Skullclamp is a good compliment to sac outlets. and High Market+Phyrexia's Core are great when you need them. Also, Kuldotha Forgemaster can be neat.
You can't buff Etched Champion much, except for like 1 modular creature. That makes it pretty so-so. I'd cut it.
A bit dubious of Chief of the Foundry, it seems pretty low impact, considering you aren't usually going to have a huge number of artifact creatures; Feldon's thing is having 1 big guy.
You probably will never get all the Urza lands in 1 place, and it can be very bad to have them not be mountains at times. I'd cut em.
I also notice that your ramp suite is very small. Acceleration is important. Commander's Sphere, MindStone, Unstable Obelisk, Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, and Gilded Lotus are a few excellent options.
