I think you should cut Metallic Mimic and Protean Raider to fill the playsets of Dire Fleet Captain , Dire Fleet Poisoner , Warkite Marauder and Kitesail Freebooter . Decent standalone cards like Kitesail are better than Mimic in Vial decks; Mimic is better in low to the ground aggro decks since you can get more value out of it by playing 1-drops. You could, of course, fill out the one-drops but it looks like you're going for a more midrangey style so Mimic is just worse than the other pirates you could play. Cutting Protean Raider is just to keep the curve closer to 2 so Vial isn't as awkward.

Open Into Wonder maybe? Warkite Marauder , Hostage Taker and Cloud Pirates for sure.

Coastal Piracy for flavor. Bedlam for fun.

Grip of Phyresis at the right moment can steal Swiftfoot Boots or some other annoying artifact right before you choose what permanent to steal.

There are better cards than Pacifism (which is not in standard but card s like it are) because that does not help you because of the static abilities are in play and since they are not activated abilities Lawmage's Binding and other similar white cards not in standard will not help.

Blue has some of the best cards with things like Kasmina's Transmutation and Deep Freeze but once again blue also Merfolk Trickster or Warkite Marauder can help.

Black has a few things as while with removal from hand but overall I am thinking splashing blue in a deck is the goto color

I also Forgot Ashiok, Dream Render is pretty darn good if you can get him down and mill them

I have often looked at building a deck like this and find myself debating the relative strengths of Merfolk Trickster and Warkite Marauder . I just get the feeling that the flash-in effect of Trickster works better in the long-game if you have cards like Clear the Mind in your deck, while you can get the effect of Marauder multiple times if you play more aggressively. You might want more instants to get value from Pteramander and I would tend to play 1 more Mist-Cloaked Herald and fewer Pteramander s, or change the balance between creatures and instants.

My own preference would be to drop Opt for Aether Tunnel or the enchantment that makes one of your creatures hexproof (?).

Captivating Crew should be in this deck. Steals creatures [pricey activation but can do multiple times given enough mana] and is relatively beefy for the CMC. Much easier to punch through with attackers if you take their blockers. I will second Warkite Marauder as it has built in evasion and makes blocking unprofitable so essentially it allows 2 pirates to get through each turn.

For getting attackers through: War Cadence makes it expensive for opponents to block your team, Rogue's Passage and Whispersilk Cloak offer some redundancy for making attackers unblockable.

Metallic Mimic can help boost your team and can become a pirate itself. Door of Destinies will keep your team growing.

FSims81 and Geoffrey

Thanks for the feedback. I have made a few changes. With no creature kill cards in the deck, I like the idea of both Warkite Marauder and Merfolk Trickster in the deck. If you opponent has a high-power creature out, on your turn flash in Trickster to prevent it attacking, or on your turn attack with Warkite and negate it's blocking potential. I have, however also added River Sneak for it's unblockable effect. The big idea is to stall until you can summon a big Tempest Djinn .

Clear the Mind is the card that worries me. If my suite of control cards are working well, I just keep recycling them back into the library. If, however, I need to increase the level of control, Clear the Mind would always be the first card to swap out. With that in mind, I need to re-visit and re-plan my side-board.

While I don't dislike Warkite Marauder at all, your early play is using 5 mana to do what River Sneak and Curious Obsession do for 3. You can leave open extra mana for counters, or Merfolk Trickster to flash in when necessary early on.
