If you want to go all in on treasures you could add Ruthless Knave and March of the Drowned

You can sac Dire Fleet Hoarder too Ruthless Knave, then return Dire Fleet Hoarder and another pirate to your hand. Then repeat the process.

Something else you could add would be Pitiless Plunderer so when something dies it gives you treasure.

I think you've gone overboard on mana rocks. From what I see, if you just want to deliver command damage, how about more treasure token producers and cards that make cheap artifact tokens. Deadeye Plunderers, Revel in Riches, Ruthless Knave, and Treasure Map  Flip would provide the tokens while making another victory condition. Mechanized Production works with those tokens too. Key to the City, Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, and Trailblazer's Boots let you hit with Silas and Akiri.

If you'd prefer tokens that can block there's also Genesis Chamber and Myr Turbine. (For extra Fun, Genesis Chamber + Norin the Wary )

I replaced Woodland Stream, Submerged Boneyard, and Foul Orchard with basic lands in my version Children of Rot and Ruin (Muldrotha Brawl). The deck seems to run a lot better that way.

I've also got some massive plays out of Song of Freyalise, especially when combined with Paradox Engine. Two turns of explosive mana to empty out the graveyard or accelerate Muldrotha onto the field followed by a brutal hit when the third lore counter is added. Then, since they all have vigilance I doo it all over again. Paradox Engine isn't exactly budget friendly, but it will probably do more work than Nissa, Steward of Elements or Fetid Pools if you need to cut for price.

To keep your ETB abilities working you might want to add a sac outlet. I use Ruthless Knave since his ability essentially only costs one mana. It also has a nice interaction with Underhanded Designs

I hope you have the classics Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar. Then there are Wild-Field Scarecrow, Ruthless Knave, the bros Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate, Corpse Harvester if you have cool zombies. If you have some ways to sacrifice artifacts there's also things like Pentad Prism and Sphere of the Suns.

No worries! Good luck with the showdown, let us know how it goes! And in all fairness, if there were more Anointer Priests and Slimefoot gets out early enough there's a fair amount of lifelink, but I definitely see what you're saying yeah. Bit of a stretch, but Pitiless Plunderer could be a really interesting mana creator, since your treasures could be doubled and tokens die quickly often, or maybe Ruthless Knave? Good luck anyways!

Nice deck, I would probably cut Ruthless Knave for Azor's Gateway

I'm surprised you haven't gone in on any of the treasure generators in black:

Pitiless Plunderer

Ruthless Knave

Revel in Riches

That said, they more benefit an aristocrats style deck -- Love Macar, so +1 from me! Keep it up!

Kingleil on Token Mastery

buckeyetron Ive slept on it a bit and do agree the combo is long and convoluted; but deleting permanents isnt your only option with token generation and a G R A V E Y A R D. Card draw is a thing; and getting ramped up to six mana isnt what the deck is about. Look at the curve. It curves out at 4 mana. Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is a two mana cast because youre sacrificing three tokens to bring him out. Youre not using Lich's Mastery until later in the game. Youre building board, chump, blockers, and pulling cards with Mastermind's Acquisition. Oh, and that little Champion of the Flame has one toughness so in response to it hitting the board turn TWO Ill just Fungal Infection. Oh yeah thats right; IT DIES.

Anyway; what you have done is convince me though that Cast Down should be in the deck. Ive thought about it and it I believe larger threats than the early game are real. I might go with three Cast Down and two Vraska's Contempt and drop all the Ruthless Knave to make this work out.
