Thank you. I test this decklist, as I'm weenie white player and always be happy to see pump spells with evasion, I find this deck really interesting and technical. Siren is really good. Hope of Ghirapur is tough, I mean, great card against counterspell decks and just a 1/1 flyer against other decks (if he kept mana to removal, he will does it when you sac). Skyship Plunderer is here for planeswalker and go crazy with one on table, otherwise 8 targets for energy with only Whirler Virtuoso as main energy enable seems too low for me and not enough impactful so finally it shows more as 2/1 flyer vanilla for me. Maybe include more PW maindeck ? I like the tempo of Aethersphere Harvester but maybe we have a slot here. And I was not happy of Curator of Mysteries each game I played. On sideboard Nimble Obstructionist and Aether Meltdown are weird for me. I would see more counterspells, Abrade, Magma Spray or wrath. So the deck is very great and I think there is some space to improve that list that can be competitive. What do you think about that @Ben4782@ ? Have you think about improve your deck ?

I made a deck very similar. I used Durable Handicraft instead of Metallic Mimic, and I threw in Skyship Plunderer and Shapers of Nature as well, instead of The explore cards you have here. The question you have to ask yourself with this deck though, is what happens if you don't draw Herald of Secret Streams? I answered that question with Lifecrafter's Gift. If you can't make your creatures unblockable, then you just have to make them as big as you can.

I also agree on the Skyship Plunderer, once people see that card, they will target it, plus you do have to have all the cards fall into place to get the JaceTrain going.

Maybe go up to 4 copies of Skyship Plunderer? This creature helps spin up a fair number of targets. When paired with Samut, the Tested you can have it get two triggers bringing Samut to her ult on a turn four curve. It having flying also helps give you trigger Admiral Beckett Brass with less risk of being blocked.
I like your deck idea as is and think it is very solid looking plus fun. +1

Love the theme dude, very flavorful +1. Still I would try to utilize your commanders ability to a point that it gives you a big advantage.
- Crumbling Ashes
- Nest of Scarabs
- Blowfly Infestation
- Contagion Engine
- Grave Betrayal
- Skyship Plunderer
- Hex Parasite
Even though these cards are less flavorful, they give your commander more purpose and it also creates a secondary theme to the deck.
I would also go more with a control set up for this deck but that's a matter of opinion I guess. I would definitely run these:
- Engulf the Shore
- Hero's Downfall (a way better Murder)
- Sudden Spoiling
- Cyclonic Rift
- Phyrexian Arena
- Coastal Piracy
Last note, proliferate is really good with your commander, you can abuse it easily with the cards I've enlisted above.
Still love your theme and the concept, this is only how I would tweak the deck.

If you are going for the infect kill in commander then youll need all the infect and proliferate cards you can get. Here are some pretty good ones-

Turn 2 Skyship Plunderer
Turn 3 Jace, Cunning Castaway, +1, Swing with plunderer to loot and give jace another counter (jace at 5 counters)
Turn 4 Play Anointed Procession, Sing with plunderer to put counter on Jace, use Jace ult and have 5 Jaces, use 4 jaces to do -2 and gain 8 2/2 creatures.
The odds of this are not high, but could you would be at large board advantage against any deck that doesn't use Hour of Promise.
Like the deck idea overall. Best of luck with it.

Thanks for commenting, I think you're 100% correct about the 1 drops and Herald of Secret Streams being bad and Skyship Plunderer being good. I think that Chart A Course is likely a must as well, whereas Seeker of Insight seems out of place. Let's keep testing, this seems sweet.
