Hi NimbusNobody, thanks for the advise.
I've thought about Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, but truth is, this deck and my other Ixalan decks (Small lil Merfolk and Naya-saurs) were made with cards from 2 pre-releases, a couple of drafts and a few boosters.
Once I have more time (and money) I'll get more things for this deck, such as Bishop of Rebirth and both Duskborne Skymarcher and Vicious Conquistador for my one drop slots. Also, more copies of the good stuff, such as Sanctum Seeker and Settle the Wreckage
Really appreciate the suggestion. Danke

Interesting. It's like you're trying to do a bigger version of mono black agro. I don't hate it, I like black cards, I do have a couple suggestions though.
Ruin Raider is an awesome card, but it needs to be in the right deck. Since you're running Noxious Gearhulk and Dire Fleet Ravager, it seems too risky to play. The agro list would basically remove Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Dire Fleet Ravager and Noxious Gearhulk in exchange for Dread Wanderer and Vicious Conquistador.
I know that doesn't sound too appealing, as you'd be sacrificing power for speed, but as it stands you have 12 cards mainboard and 4 sideboard that will drain you for four if you hit them off of your raider. The reason Dark Confidant is so good in modern is because he's only played in deck that top their curve at 3, with only the occasional 4-drop. So I would certainly suggest going in the more aggressive rout. If you do, you'll have access to constantly recurring threats that come back from the graveyard and cause nightmares for your opponents. It's quite fun.
Whichever direction you choose to go in, I will say that you probably have too much removal. I would suggest going from 12 removal spells to about 8, 10 if you're trying to play control, which this deck currently isn't doing. Essence Extraction is also a consideration if you're looking for a removal spell that will draw even on life if you find it on end step.

So my meta is a lot of control. I had to make some changes to this list. I had to ex Wanted Scoundrels due to its continuous mana ramp for my opponent.I replaced them with 3 Fathom Fleet Captain and added another Kari rev. I also took out Vicious Conquistador for Night Market Lookout. With your list I went 2-2 one round loss to ramp red curve. My new list went 3-1. Loss due to mana screwed. Ill give you a full list when I change a few cards around. To compare.

Few Possible Improvements I could suggest here as I believe you could get a lot more damage in quicker than the playtests I carried out:

epajula - I started out with Hordechief and Iroas also but they got dropped so I could fully capitalize on the tribal aspect of the deck.

Gifted Aetherborn and Bishop's Soldier hate each other. I would suggest either sideboarding Aetherborn or playing black 1's and 2's. It's just real hard to have W on turn one and still have access to BB on turn 2.

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I have a few comments:
- Vicious Conquistador seems pretty weak to me. A 1/2 for 1 is rather bad, even if it drains your opponent for 1 when it hits, and more copies of Legion's Landing seems much better.
- Skymarch Bloodletter also doesn't seem like it does a lot. More copies of Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle looks great to me.
- Gifted Aetherborn also looks much better than Bloodcrazed Paladin; I'd probably run the full 4 Gifted Aetherborn.
- 20 lands looks like nowhere near enough for a deck that's looking to hardcast 6-drops. I'd strongly consider going up to at least 23, and maybe even 24.
In any case, awesome job on the deck! Enjoy!
