Rishadan Footpad Discussion

One of my friends ran a similar lockdown deck like this. I remember Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Footpad and Rishadan Brigand all being oppressively powerful. Especially when he was able to get all three out relatively early thanks to Recruiter of the Guard

Cool deck, the name made me laugh!
So here are some suggestions:
why no Wall of Omens?
as Glacial Chasm and Maze of Ith can shut down your whole gameplan you should include some more ways to get rid of them permanently. By now you can only kill them with Spine of Ish Sah or very slowly with Reality Acid (as brago already can't connect when they're on board) or bounce them once with Venser, Shaper Savant or Riftwing Cloudskate. This is why you might include Strip Mine and Tectonic Edge. They're also bf with Sun Titan ;)

I am looking for 3 cards, one of which has gone up preposterously since Ixalan was spoiled.
Since Ixalan has brought us Storm Fleet Arsonist I thought it would be a nice time to build my Blade of Selves Flicker deck, using these four guys as the core creatures. Problem is...you can't buy the Rishadan pirates anywhere that I'm used to looking.
Help a brotha out? I live in Canada, if that's an issue.

Merchant Ship??? for our pirates to rob
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 would suggest to put just basics in for the lands in the meantime, start thinking of your mana ratio at least.
I really love the deck so far though, you have covered pretty much every flavorful card I could think up myself. Curse of Opulence feels like it would suit the theme as well.
You do seem to be missing the Rishidan pirates in your list, I find them pretty fitting to the crew:
The first 3 are especially annoying with Deadeye Navigator.

Well what do you want to do with this deck? If you want to do stax I think you need more cards to support locking your opponents down, things like Winter Orb and probably more control elements, counterspells, removal, board wipes. If you are on a budget then you might consider the old pirates Rishadan Footpad and Rishadan Brigand
But if you want to focus on getting value out if Brago and ETB effects then I'd go with more token producers.
It isn't completely clear which kind of game plan you want to go down. I think for either one you won't to go pretty all in on. There are a few cards that kind of seem like just blue/white goodstuff, which is fine but doesn't really support any particular strategy or synergy with Brago.
Either way Strionic Resonator is hard not to put into a Brago deck in my opinion.
As for the mana base it seems fine. 33 Might be slightly low on the land count? I would personally drop Coral Atoll for Azorius Chancery, note that you have to bounce an untapped island for atoll where are chancery is just any land, including a tapped one. I think you could drop a few of the tapped duals for basics if you felt it was slowing you down without impacting your ability to cast things greatly.
Anyway if you tell us a bit more about what you want the deck to do, your game plan, it's easier to offer some advice for recommendations.
