Brass has had enough of hate. Help needed for Pirate Tribal.

As this was a part of a topic w/ more lists in the same forum posts, I decided to separate them for nothing; or, maybe some cause...
Why does so many hate Pirate Tribal? I personally believe as a Tribe, they're only getting better overtime. This is one of my decks suffering to see what cards in the Maybeboard (Hot Seat) that deserve a second chance in the deck. Whilst I have some Raid effects here, I never thought about Explore effects; they just are that good, but why did I exclude them? Here is what I want for this deck:
What cards to use in Grixis that can help w/ this tribe?
What are the best cards w/ explore in this tribe?
What suggestions do you have to stop decks against your Aggro?
What other cards would you suggest? & how to work cards like Timestream Navigator & other kinds of cards in this case?
&... that's all I'm asking for now. The deck already is at 100 (I think?), but the Hot Seat is there as a beacon for Room for improvement. Remember that. I'll get to you later; I never thought a place for multiple decks in one post IS a Phail...
I always thought "Pirate Minotaur" sounded like a poorly delivered insult imo.
I think Break Through the Line is worth thinking about to promote evasion and getting raid triggers and such.

They are fun cards and with the treason subtheme that pirates (and Beckett in particular) have, I think they can do some interesting things for the deck.
I also see that you've included Trove of Temptation . I don't think it fits. The treasures per turn are slow and you will often find yourself attacking with a lot of your creatures, so being attacked every turn is a conflicting strategy.
Anyhow, this is my list, maybe you'll see something you like.
