That could work, but Warkite Marauder would be strictly better (and it's only $1 a copy, too, so it wouldn't explode the budget or anything). I've found Daring Saboteur to be really good but you do sometimes have to hold off on attacking with it for a turn or two. Marauder would be a more aggressive choice; I specifically avoided including flyers in this deck so we could still attack through other decks with flyers, but Marauder is kinda ok against those decks as well since it can turn enemy flyers off.
That said, now that we have the full GRN spoilers, I've started coming to the conclusion that this deck may need to be back-burnered for now. Losing Slither Blade and Unsummon is a big deal and we don't have great replacements coming from GRN. As such, switching over to full Flyers is probably just the way to go, as Favorable Winds and Tempest Djinn are amazing payoffs for that deck and you aren't quite so dependent on small tempo plays. Something like:
That's just off the cuff, of course, but a deck like that would probably just play better overall.

I would suggest adding the Aether Swoopers the Goldfish deck had back in. This way you have more artifact options for Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp. To make room for this card I would suggest cutting Nimble Obstructionist or Curator of Mysteries. The reason I suggest these as potential cut options is to help reduce the mana cost of duck to make cards like Storm Fleet Aerialist be able to be played with the raid trigger easier and allow you to get more creatures on the board faster so Favorable Winds has more impact.
Best of luck with the deck.

If thats all youre missing from the list then Storm Fleet Aerialist can fill the spot.

Deciding what to take out to put in rigging runner will take some testing. The prime candidate i'd pick is Fanatical Firebrand because a 2/2 on turn 1 is just too good to pass up in my opinion. You'll have to see how much removal you end up with after refining your deck and decide if it's worth keeping Firebrand over something with more removal influence like Walk the Plank, or some 2-drop pirates, like Kitesail Freebooter or Storm Fleet Aerialist.

Interesting deck idea you have going here. I am always a fan of flying pirates and other favorable winds style decks.
My problem with your design is that you really have no need for Radiant Destiny as it just complicates your mana base and slows you down for having too many anthem effects. The card slot would be better off changing some form of board control like Fatal Push, Lightning Strike, or Lookout's Dispersal.
Another card I am not to fond of is Siren Lookout. For a three cost potential 2/3 flier, it is lacking for an aggro deck. I would cut in favor of more Kitesail Freebooter and/or Storm Fleet Aerialist . Reason for the Aerialist is that as a 2 cost for same base stats and is easy enough to make it trigger as a 2/3. It also being that one mana cheaper helps you agress faster by being able to drop more on the board sooner.
As for side deck I always make sure to have Lost Legacy when I play black just because there are enough combo decks being played and/or Second Sun decks. Being able to remove a key card to a combo or a card that just says I win the game (Approach of the Second Sun) on turn 3 is usually going to make things a lot easier.
I have a few more suggestions, but not the time to post atm. If you are interested I will try to post them later.

Maybe add some Storm Fleet Aerialists, and increase the number of Opts. Censor is great countermagic when they don't know that you have it, since people tend to play their win conditions the turn their mana allows them to. Navigator's Ruin is another nice card to mill for 4 often. Lastly, consider Winds of Rebuke. Nice deck, keep up the good work, and I hope my suggestions are beneficial.

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.
