You may cast historic spells as though they had flash. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Discussion

I have one more suggestion for you. Swap Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage for Shalai, Voice of Plenty if you can. I know Raff has some good abilitys, but unless you have a lot of mana available your not casting a lot of legendary's at flash speed. Shalai has hexproof for you and all your dudes and can also save a game. Maybe as a side board option.

Hilariously frankensteined together, I love it. +1 from me. Maybe Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage to give the whole team flash?

Fairmount I love Dispatch! I'm really glad I swooped up a playset when I started building this deck, I'll try tossing them in there. I also like Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, I'll have to try them when I get with my playgroup next. I can see how Gearsmith Prodigy and more Ornithopters would be more consistent than the two-drops I have, although I am worried about removing those seeing as they are the two things that have historic triggers (especially Serra Disciple). I guess that means it's time to playtest, haha. Thanks :^)

Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage would also be great historic payoffs!

I would go -3 Relic Runner, -3 Serra Disciple

+4 Gearsmith Prodigy, +2 Ornithopter.

Also the 4 Darksteel Citadel should be easy to fit it, -2 plains -1 island -1 new benalia

The artifact sub theme will help your deck be more aggressive.

Ps- Consider Raff instead of cards like Lavinia and Odric, he’s incredible payoff

Ok first of all, I love Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage decks. There are some changes you could consider to make the deck better.

Take out Resplendent Angel. In a deck like this , the only way you can trigger it is with your copies of Lyra and you don’t run a full playset which you shouldn’t anyway because it is legendary. Second of all, you can’t flash it in with Raff, so it can’t perform tricks that you can do with other creatures.

Censor in the meta today is strictly outclassed by Syncopate unless you’re cycling it but Syncopate isn’t worth putting in either. Consider some Settle the Wreckages to really screw over Aggro decks.

My last suggestion is to splash Green in the deck for a couple of reasons. Since you are running Shalai, you should be able to activate it’s ability. Also, I think Adventurous Impulse or Kamahl's Druidic Vow would work in this deck in green.

Have fun flashing!

Would you ever consider Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage as a second copy of Shimmer Myr?

No Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage? I'd also consider Urza's Ruinous Blast for the sideboard.
