At the beginning of your upkeep, you may put a fuse counter on Powder Keg.
, Sacrifice Powder Keg: Destroy each artifact and creature with converted mana cost equal to the number of fuse counters on Powder Keg.

You seem to be running two copies of Voltaic Key ... I don't think that's allowed in EDH.
If you're playing Mono-Blue good stuff, I highly suggest Mystic Remora as a source of early card advantage.
In mono-blue, you might want to consider Back to Basics .
I don't think you should run Bonehoard , because your general counters the first equip activation.
Strip Mine is useful as a 1-of effect to take out The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or other obnoxious lands. I don't think you need the Wasteland as well; you may have more luck with just a basic Island , especially if you choose to run Back to Basics .
Consecrated Sphinx is good as a value blue card. The card advantage is just nuts.
Good luck with deck building!

I own everything included, so not a problem on having the cards available. I pruned Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse from my over land because I felt I had enough fetching means going on, but it wouldn't be beyond reason to consider those in place of sorcery-based fetching from the perspective of recurring them from the graveyard and being able to repeat the fetch process. It's something I could consider.

I'm going to post several posts, each with a different topic. This way I don't get halfway through and it glitches, or I run out of time and can't finish.
First post is about dealing with tokens. Here are some options for dealing with go wide strategies (decks that swarm opponents with large amounts of creatures).
There are different ways to battle these types of decks. I am including only cards available in these colors:
- stops you from getting attacked by their army of tokens.
Powder Keg or Ratchet Bomb - gets rid off-the-wall tokens.
Pyroclasm or Anger of the Gods gets rids of tokens while they are small.
Mizzium Mortars - overloaded kills them when 4 toughness or smaller.
Insurrection - use their army against them.
Basilisk Collar let's you out live the armies.
Steel Hellkite - let's you pay 0 to get rid of tokens if it deals combat damage.
Balefire Dragon - gets rid of most creatures if he gets combat damage in.
Harbinger of the Hunt - repeatable token hoser. If you equip the collar it wipes all non fliers.
Siege Dragon - also fun with the collar.
Subterranean Tremors - good for token sweeper.

All of the following suggestions are purely pirate-themed, not actual usefulness.
Gamble Favorite pastime I hear
Reassembling Skeleton Pirates always have a few skeletons around
Expedition Map need to know where we're going
Jar of Eyeballs in case we lose one

decks that rely on the graveyard can often be severely disabled with single cards and black has a bit of a problem in dealing with artifacts and enchantments. You might want to include some more removals for the most often played graveyard hate cards Leyline of the Void, Grafdigger's Cage, Rest in Peace, Tormod's Crypt, Relic of Progenitus

obesechicken13 Haha yeah, I'm not a fan of land destruction unless you're going to win shortly after. If I just destroy one person's lands all that does is mean that one person doesn't get to play or have fun for the rest of the game. Not the mood I'm looking for in this deck; especially since I made this deck just for some quirky fun.
I find it MUCH more fun to use her ability defensively to make sure no one wipe the board unless you want them to. Having the ability to make someone's lands into creatures makes them much more willing to negotiate and play politics with you; it's great.
Also there's not a lot of boardwipes (that I know of) that mono-green has access to. I included Nevinyrral's Disk, Powder Keg, and Ezuri's Predation in the maybeboard for people who would like to go that route, but those are really the only three I can think of that are under $2.
Thanks for checking out the deck!
