Hope of Ghirapur gets wiped easily by the Goblin Chainwhirler, just like Skyship Plunderer. Much better option is putting in Ornithopter since it is free cast on turn 1 and also triggers Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp.

I would recommend using Skyship Plunderer in place of Slither Blade. a T2 SP followed by T3 Jace, Cunning Castaway means you can make your Jace tokens as early as T4, since most decks will not have a flying blocker that early on.

T2: Drop Skyship Plunderer T3: Drop Jace, Cunning Castaway, +1, swing with Skyship Plunderer put another loyalty counter so now he is at 5. T4: Swing with Skyship Plunderer, add a counter, he is at 6. Main Phase 2, -5 Jace, Cunning Castaway and get two more copies of Jace.
Now you have three copies of Jace, Cunning Castaway to work with, so as soon as you drop Heart of Kiran you can crew it using one copy, all while continuing to tick up loyalty on the other copy/copies. By the time you use all the loyalty counters from the crew copy, you will have generated more copies and can just continue the cycle.

I built something very similar around Jace, Cunning Castaway early in Ixalan. Have you thought about Lookout's Dispersal and Heart of Kiran? Lookout's Dispersal is pretty easy to cast for 1B, as you have 8 pirates (and with Arcane Adaptation you could turn your whole creature set into pirates pretty easily. With Skyship Plunderer you can get Jace to 5 loyalty on T3, and on T4 you have 2 Jace to work with, one you can keep building up to 5 and splitting, and the other can crew Heart of Kiran until it runs out of counters, by which point you move on to a new Jace and start all over again.

Sweet deck! I might consider taking out one or two of the Hallowed Fountains and maybe adding in a couple more basic lands for Blood Moon protection. Also, isn't Thrummingbird strictly better than Skyship Plunderer? While it does have one less power, it can add level counters to all of your creatures, instead of just the one and it dies to all of the same stuff anyway. +1!

Some more changes here for this deck to give me a little more threat and survival:)

Looks like it's been a minute since you've been active on this deck, but I've been messing around with a similar build, so it's nice seeing yours in comparison. I went full-boat flying pirates with Storm Fleet Aerialist, Skyship Plunderer, Dreamcaller Siren, and Favorable Winds in the mix as well. However, what elevates the deck is just a sneaky-good common from Kaladesh: Subtle Strike.
With Warkite Marauder it becomes a Hazoret the Fervent-killer (or anything else non-hexproof). Not only that, it adds a +1/+1 counter, which you can start ticking up with Skyship Plunderer. Even without these synergies, it's still a very capable card that's just about on-par with Moment of Craving, which has been seeing Standard play. I'm having so much fun with this deck and it's throwing my FNM for a loop.
