Storm Fleet Aerialist Discussion

I've been tinkering with a VERY similar deck. I cut out all the 3 drop fliers though and included Skyship Plunderer (can boost Storm Fleet Aerialist), another Chart a Course and even 2 Reverse Engineer (may play more). I haven't play tested this yet, but I'm actually considering a 4 of for Ornithopter and adding another Reverse Engineering. Basically, load the board up as fast as I can, find as many Favorable Winds as possible, and hope I can overwhelm the opponent. Also, using Prepare//Fight for surprise removal/life gain/damage to the face and Unsummon to try and buy just a liiitle bit more time. Bottom line is everything is very low to the ground and flying out fast :).
Also, definitely sideboarding a full playset of solemnity.

Awesome list! Might just get me back into Standard. Never liked the idea of dumping $100+ into a deck that'll lose pieces in a few months.

What do you think about me removing Enigma Drake, and adding Dreamcaller Siren? That seems more of a viable option. Trading a 4 cost for a 3 cost, though, I'll possibly add one more Storm Fleet Aerialist.
If I decide to remove Sweltering Suns what do you think I should add in it's stead? I was thinking another Riddleform ? Or even something else I'm overlooking here? Whirler Virtuoso could also be added in if Enigma Drake is being removed.
Edit: I like Enigma Drake because he's a big flying wall. He has the added bonus of being an attacker if you cast plenty of Sorcery/Instants, but I almost think that may be a bit too slow, now that I've seen this deck against other decks.

Or do you think there are better things to remove?? I'm all ears zapsdiputs.

If that is the case then Curator of Mysteries might be a more worthwhile card. It doesn't have flash but can be cycled when you are in the early game looking for mana. It also is a much larger body that is harder to handle.
Or if you want a better answer vs control match ups then I would suggest Glyph Keeper. Another cash friendly option that has a good size and can be embalmed in the late game if it found its way into your grave.
Also if you prefer a faster deck then I suggest taking out the Skysovereign, Consul Flagship and go for Aethersphere Harvester. And to further support this you would want to use more Siren Stormtamer and add Storm Fleet Aerialist or Hope of Ghirapur.

Hey there, I really like the deck and may bring it into gameday! The thing I find strange is the fact that you use 23 lands when your CMC is extremely low. I think lowering the lands to 18 and putting in another Favorable Winds, Siren Stormtamer, Storm Fleet Aerialist , Skyship Plunderer or Nimble Obstructionist , may help a lot more. Also, since the majority of the creatures you have in this deck are pirates, maybe Lookout's Dispersal would help a small bit. Not only this, I can also see you're running on a fairly tight budget, Kefnet the Mindful is quite cheap right now at $2, you could pick up one or two copies of those. As for sideboard cards, I think that a few Negate's and Dispel's may do the trick along with Spell Pierce, Chart a Course , Dreamcaller Siren, dive down and Perilous Voyage .

I am a huge fan of this kind of deck, I think that I will play it for this Standard season, and I have been play testing a lot of builds, and Dive Down is really more of a sideboard card. I would add to the two-drop slot with Skyship Plunderer, as it is a two power flying body for two, and it will often have incidental value with Storm Fleet Aerialist. I also think that you might want to trim down the Glyph Keeper, as, while it is very good, the odds of hitting five lands by turn five, on the play, are only 37%, or 47% on the draw.

My advice would be to solidify your gameplan, and try to consolidate some of the cards.
Fathom Fleet Captain is an amazing 2 drop in this kind of deck, I like to run it as a 4-of in pirates. I'd recommend picking him up and swapping out the 2 Dire Fleet Hoarder and 2 Storm Fleet Aerialist.
Chart A Course strikes me as slightly better than Costly Plunder, especially since you're low on tokens to sac for it. I'd drop plunder and move Chart A Course up to a 4-of if you really want the card draw.
