Thanks for the suggestions.

Theme is pretty important, budget is low, I wouldn't want to spend more than a couple dollars on a single card. Combos are good, just not competitive "win before T5 w/ 2 cards" combos. Weak but clever or flavorful combos are fine.

Tidal Flats looks GREAT. Keeps other players off my back, totally fits the theme, this is definitely going in. Sorta like a cheaper themier shittier Conspiracy. Exactly the kind of card I'm looking for.

I also fancy Gorgon Flail. I've already got Pemmin's Aura and Freed from the Real. I've also got a Pirate Ship I could include for a poor mans Horseshoe Crab combo.

Thing from the Deep and Sunken City are definitely getting the boot. I was thinking Sunken City might be a good way to give my camarid/kelp/starfish tokens some bite, but something like Polymorphous Rush would be a lot more fun...

I figure I could at least sac Polar Kraken and Leviathan to Homarid Spawning Bed when the upkeep becomes too much, but some of these fatties are basically just in there for flavor/because I like them, their inclusion is hard to defend on merit. Plus, it's always extra satisfying when you win with some really horrible creature.

The combo w/ Tolarian Serpent is also pretty gimmicky, not sure if there's a any mono blue graveyard play that would make it worth it. I've got a Reminisce, from Onslaught, with water in the art :) Would this still be useful if I pulled the self-mill stuff, though?

Homarid Shaman is there 100% for the satisfaction of hosing beefy mono green decks with a lobster holding a magic wand. BLEATS OF DESPAIR!

I haven't gotten much mileage out of High Tide, I just added Great Whale which might help, but I expect you're right and this should be cut. Could repeat it w/ an Isochron Scepter but there's so few instants and sorceries it would be a dead card most of the time. Not much good ramp in blue for my fatties :(

Ring of Evos Isle seems like a better way to protect my creatures than Vanishing (and arguably more theme friendly), as fun as phasing is. I'll have to grab a one.

Piracy is a good one. Coastal Piracy and Piracy Charm are good too.

Gild and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed because more Gold!!!!

Dreadship Reef, the new Drowned Catacomb, and a few other lands are pretty on theme. Make sure to use this Island in your deck. It's out treasure island!!

Merchant Ship??? for our pirates to rob

We need some sea monsters. The new Fleet Swallower, Shipbreaker Kraken, Scourge of Fleets

Any of the new pirate ship vehicles

And don't forget to add our previous pirate friends, Ramirez DePietro, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider/Skyship Plunderer, Talas Air Ship, Talas Merchant and the rest of the Talas errata'd to pirates. Skeleton Ship, Pirate Ship, Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Brigand, Rishadan Cutpurse.

I must say, a pirate and her crew need a ship to navigate with. While Pirate Ship isn't the greatest card it is very thematic, if you don't like that card maybe Skyship Weatherlight, the ship Hanna actually was navigator for in the lore, would work!

Thada Adel, Acquisitor would make a great pirate and be a good addition to the deck and Chasm Skulker is a squid horror, perfect theme and a powerful card on top of that!

Finally Spreading Seas is a very annoying card allowing you take a powerful land you opponent controls and turn it into a basic island, or use it to allow islandwalk on some of your creatures, and what pirate wouldn't want more water to sail on?

It's for some cards that are actually common in real, but were never published as such (or at all) in MTGO. Cards like Arenson's Aura (ice age was not published on line), Dark Heart of the Wood (same for The Dark) or like Pirate Ship (regarding this one: it actually never been common, and timeshifted cards are not legal in pauper...).

To make sure about the legality, I suggest search for the card in Cardhoarder, a site to buy magic cards for the on-line.

Why is Pirate Ship classified as a "human pirate"? Lol.
