Okay to be honest I don't see any upside of Dinosaur hunter compared to any other deathtouch creature. I mean his appility is pretty much deathtouch for dino's only, so I think he is kinda like a draft card that should never see the light of constructed play :D

On your maindeck, I would suggest playing Bontu's Monument because it is a really stong payoff for playing mono black Fathom Fleet Boarder is an ok card but pretty weak compared to the likes of ahn,crop-crasher. Could still be played though, if you go with Bontu's, so you only pay 2 for him.

I would also cut the Fathom Fleet Cutthroat, because I think he is a little underwhelming and go for Heart of Kiran if you don't mind the missing flavor. Forerunner of the Coalition is also pretty good, if you play him with Bontu's for even more ping's. Only my 2 cents, hope you have fun playing :)

Thanks for the tips. I was actually thinking about Dinosaur Hunter and completely agree! Its not worth playing even for the synergy.I am struggling to put more than 1 Monument in, not sure what to drop for it. I know the Pirate ship is the weakest vehicle, but its got great synergy with the aggro Pirates.

Pretty interesting brew, but I don't think Monoblack Pirates is a viable strategy right now. You're denying yourself on playing Warkite Marauder, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Daring Buccaneer, Dire Fleet Neckbreaker, Chart a Course, Lookout's Dispersal and so on. But if you insist on this take, I'd recommend switch Fell Flagship for Metallic Mimic and cut Heart of Kiran for more Bontu's Monument.
