The poison that Wesley was immune to could either be Moonglove Extract or Vial of Poison.

Dread pirate Roberts: Fathom Fleet Cutthroat or Fathom Fleet Captain or Hostage Taker and Dire Fleet Poisoner could represent the time Wesley spent as the pirate.

The boat Wesley uses might be Fell Flagship or Sleek Schooner or Shadowed Caravel. The boat the princess is kidnapped in could be Smuggler's Copter or Dusk Legion Dreadnought.

Shrieking eel: Shriekmaw or a Slipstream Eel equipped with Fireshrieker.

Dying Wish could represent the scene where Buttercup pushes Wesley down the hill and he yells "as you wish!"

Their battle "to the pain" could be Pain's Reward or Painful Quandary or Decree of Pain.

Great idea!

Liliana definitely gives me some pretty big Yennefer vibes. Maybe a few copies of her would be good? Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Liliana of the Veil could work.

The Gitrog Monster could work well as the Ofiri prince in the sewers of Oxenfurt from the HoS DLC.

Necrophages are pretty easy to find in Black. I'm thinking of the new art on Carrion Feeder would work well, so would Phyrexian Ghoul. Wraiths of all kind are also pretty easy to find. Frozen Shade from 5th Edition, Chilling Shade, Liliana's Shade and Nightwing Shade all seem like good options.

Higher Vampires are also pretty easy, you can take your pick from tons of options. Maybe you could put in some legendary vampires that could represent Detlaff and Regis? Maybe Baron Sengir and Crovax the Cursed? Shauku, Endbringer looks like an Alp or Bruxa.

You need a horse and a boat! Sleek Schooner looks about right. There are a surprising amount of horses in Black and Green, the best of which are Nightmare, Timbermare and Vine Mare. Roach looks a bit more like Dusk Charger (minus the red eyes).

The Wild Hunt and the White Frost could be represented by a Snow subtheme. A handful of snow basics, Boreal Druid and Rimebound Dead could be a decent start, along with a few more things like Dead of Winter.

I'll give this some more thought later. Hopefully this gave you some ideas you like!

Merchant Ship (This is is about $10 on tcgplayer right now I checked)

Talas Air Ship , Pirate Ship , Ghost Ship and Skeleton Ship are super cheap

There you may want to look at vehicles Consulate Dreadnought , Fell Flagship , Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Shadowed Caravel , Silent Submersible . Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , Sleek Schooner and a few more I may have missed.

Also Ixalan and rivals of Ixalan had a lot blue and black pirates and there are a few more other options but I think you could go vehicles and hit your theme on a overall cheap budget

Your myr can leverage the vehicles easily

skip Sleek Schooner and be sure to play Hostage Taker if you can. I prefer to play UB pirates. That generally means a playset of stormtamer, hostage taker, and Dire Fleet Poisoner

So here is the thing. You only need about 40 or so cards that help pirates to make a deck feel piratey. And a lot of these pirates are kinda awful.

Creaturewise, I would cut Brazen Buccaneers, Cloud Pirates, Daring Buccaneer, Deadeye Tormentor, Dire Fleet Hoarder, Dire Fleet Interloper, Slippery Scoundrel, Storm Fleet Spy. They are pretty weak and their payoffs aren't great.

Crafty Cutpurse is a fun pirate who can surprise answer a bunch of EDH strategies. Dreamcaller Siren has some interesting surprise tricks. Kukemssa Pirates lets you steal artifacts from people. Ramirez DePietro is the original badass pirate. Shapesharer is a pirate and lets you copy value pirates, such as neckbreaker. Changeling Berserker is a 5/3 pirate with haste who lets you retrigger ETB effects later. Adaptive Automaton is another lord to help buff your pirates.

Land and mana wise, you want about 44 sources of mana. My rule of thumb is 38 lands, and 6-8 mana rocks for a 3 colour deck. Sol Ring is a staple as well. Signets, Commander's Sphere and stuff, all good. Path of Ancestry also gives a free scry when used to cast pirates.

For enchantments, Call to the Kindred basically is a 2-1 as people kill it before it gets going and it doesn't have great odds of hitting a pirate. Curious Obsession, Navigator's Ruin, Swashbuckling, Trove of Temptation are all low impact or actively harmful. I would cut all them.

Coastal Piracy is both thematic and rewards you for doing what you want to do. Attack. Kindred Discovery is less thematic but also helps reward you for playing pirates.

For artifacts, you have a lot of eh ones. Pirate's Cutlass is a low impact card, but thematic. Sleek Schooner and Dusk Legion Dreadnought are so weak they aren't even worth playing. Captain's Hook is just +2/+0, menace, as your creatures all have the pirate typing.

Door of Destinies is a powerful artifact in tribal decks that can get out of control pretty easily. Heirloom Blade is a more powerful, impactful weapon to equip your creatures with, as it also lets you chain through your deck. Herald's Horn lets you psudo draw more and gives a cost reduction. Obelisk of Urd is an anthem effect. Stoneforge Masterwork is an equipment that rewards a large boardstate. Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and Smuggler's Copter are both high impact vehicles who are good to tutor up, and from the new set Weatherlight fetches up artifacts when you deal damage which is fun.

For your instant/sorceries, you want to be more high impact or efficient. Duress only hits 1 person in a multiple player game. You also want some flat out draw cards. This is more up to you, but Terminate is good removal. Jace's Ingenuity is solid draw.

For more pirate themed spells, Spell Swindle and Brass's Bounty both are thematic and can be quite powerful, as well as push you to your alt win condition.

@Urrrdragon, I like the idea of Sleek Schooner. It costs two less then Dusk Legion Dreadnought and is only one to crew, but lacks the vigilance and power. Still a neat option.

I hear ya, the vampire token decks are insane. Same deal, I was looking at all these artifacts thinking they won't fit in many decks, but together maybe they'll be fun. One artifact that's pretty easy to crew is Sleek Schooner, it's been working really well in my vampire deck ironically.
