Here are a few suggestions for synergy regarding pirates, and leveraging against board wipes:

Use cards like Conspiracy, Xenograft and Arcane Adaptation to make everything a pirate.

Creatures to help mitigate board wipes in Grixis could include Coffin Queen (steal from the graveyard and/or exile), Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (exile all opponent creatures that die and get zombie tokens), Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (undying), Marchesa, the Black Rose (dethrone - amazing synergy with Mikaeus), Geth, Lord of the Vault (steal from graveyard and mill), Sheoldred, Whispering One (board swinging reanimation and opponent sacrifice) and Soul of New Phyrexia (permanents become indestructible).

Artifacts and spells to help mitigate could include Eldrazi Monument (creatures are indestructible), Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact (opponent sacrifices when your creatures die), Darksteel Plate (indestructible), Training Grounds (reduce all activated abilities of creatures noted), Paradoxical Outcome (bounce to hand and card draw for significant advantage).

I'm sure there are many more, but those were the first that came to mind. Good luck with your build.

I see it now, that's tricky... I missed the bit where you counter yourself deliberately. You have to have Mishra, but that's okay. Mishra's always available to you anyways. I really like it with Paradoxical Outcome.

slim_chanc3 glad you like it! Note that Blood Funnel is unique to the Mishra, Artificer Prodigy build of this deck type, as you can counter-and-refetch non-creature artifacts with Mishra's trigger. It can still be a hassle, Ornithopter and such are good fodder and you can Paradoxical Outcome to get rid of it.

Spire of Industry was considered and is a possible addition.

Renegade Map would require me to modify my lands mainly removing my cycle lands which help get to my combo. I would need to re work to make it work.

Paradoxical Outcome is interesting but currently does not feel to impactful. Most stuff we want on field and don't want back I hand with the exception of Prophetic Prism

Have you considered Spire of Industry to help with your mana base? Renegade Map can fix your mana too as well as triggering Reckless Fireweaver.

Also, Paradoxical Outcome looks like it would work well here, letting you replay your stuff to double up on your ETBs as well as maybe saving a Saheeli from combat or something, not to mention that it's drawing you cards at instant speed.

I'm still fairly new to magic and I tried this deck out earlier and really enjoyed playing with the deck. I won more than I lost, which is always progress! I'm curious as to the utility of the Paradoxical Outcome card. I had it in my hand several times, and never knew when to use it.

Dorotheus, why would Paradoxical Outcome be helpful for monoblue control other than the obvious card draw? it might have been helpful to post my old list to look off of, so here it is:
