I'd run 4x goblin banneret over the Fanatical Firebrands, especially since they combo really well with one another. Make a Stand is an okay sideboard card and decent combat trick, Bounty Agent for the sideboard. Also, gotta run at least 1 Chance for Glory. Too spicy not to! Citywide Bust for sideboard against midrange/stompy, Conclave Tribunal or two as well for random removal against combo pieces. Maybe even try Deafening Clarion in the sideboard to clear weenies (like my elf deck) and get through for the win? I'd do 2 Rigging Runners instead of the firebrands. Dire Fleet Daredevil also for consideration. Probably go to 22 lands if you're doing all 1,2, & 3 drops.

Legion Warboss could find a home here from the new set. I think the prospector, goblin barrage, and shock could be adjusted to make room.

Rigging Runner seems good, but I don't know where it would fit in.

Goblin Locksmith seems good for sideboard.

Interesting list. Have you considered Wily Goblin or Rigging Runner in the list? I know you're considering Banefire. It seem's great against control. Perhaps The Flame of Keld may work as well? Good luck with the list!

Thanks for the suggestions WeaselEnergy! I'll definitely test this with Fell Flagship and Fathom Fleet Captain. I tested with Rigging Runner, but I stuck with Daring Buccaneer because I felt it was a better turn 1 option if you don't draw Fanatical Firebrand.

You could add Fell Flagship or Rigging Runner or Fathom Fleet Captain. Also adding tribal cards that could benefit all of your pirates could be good

If you're looking to maximize targets for Mentor and Path, you could consider replacing 2-3 Boros Challenger with Swiftblade Vindicator and Torch Courier with Rigging Runner. If you do, I would consider adding Guildmage's Forum as it's very strong with the Vindicator, and going up to 24 land because the forum is a good mana sink for a fifth mana. Looks pretty good now!

@j_spencer93 There has been a multitude of situations where having a Fanatical Firebrand and not a Lightning-Rig Crew was beneficial. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

@fettywapmtg I feel like Flame of Keld isn't necessary. I actually got this idea from a player at my LGS, and he has cast Banefire for x=19 once. You're probably right about having a full set of Chainwhirlers and moving Detection Tower and Field of Ruin to the sideboard. Thanks for the suggestions.

@Ugin5789 You're welcome!

@Dragonman39 I'm considering Rigging Runner as a sideboard card when I need to be more agressive. I think I'll take out Wily Goblin for Legion Warboss. Thanks for the suggestions.

I certainly agree with fettywapmtg in that you should run a full set of Goblin Chainwhirler. If you're going full-on goblins, he's your best player! I also think that you are underestimating Rigging Runner! The first strike and the fact that you can get that extra +1/+1 is huge. You want to get in fast and hard with a deck like this. Even without the +1, the first strike can take out your opponent's Bomat Courier if you're up against the meta / aggro decks, leaving you with the upper hand. I also think that the Wily Goblin is unnecessary here. I originally had it in my goblin deck:

Suicide Squad

Standard Dragonman39


,but I cut it in favor of better options. The fact is that you get enough extra mana value from Goblin Warchief and Skirk Prospector that Wily just doesn't do enough for the deck. You could replace them with Dark-Dweller Oracle for extra card advantage, or wait until Guilds of Ravnica comes out and put in Legion Warboss. He's not added to this site yet, but you can check out spoilers for it! In any case, have fun playing your deck, and I hope that it serves you well!
