Your mana doesn't work for Counterspell . I'd include 4x Shivan Reef (cut 3 mountain 1 island). I'd also cut 3 swamp 1 island for 4 River of Tears . Obviously there's better lands, but I'm suggesting based on a low budget.
I'm assuming since you're playing casual, you can afford the taplands in Crumbling Necropolis . If your friends are running taplands as well, they're the absolute best thing in that slot.
Beyond that, Interplanar Beacon is . . . fine. I wouldn't run it in 3 color, honestly.
Also, Sarkhan the Masterless is the single best win con for a superfriends list. Actually, I used it alongside Elspeth, Sun's Champion in a deck as a one of to tutor with Fae of Wishes . I did have a few walkers, but that was mostly because it was a Oath of Nissa Narset, Parter of Veils deck.

Muddle the Mixture is a decent counterspell and can tutor torpor orb.
Dimir Infiltrator and shred memory are the other transmute options for torpor orb but less useful aside from the transmute. I would probably run demonic tutor or diabolic tutor over those two depending on your budget.
And i would probably run Crumbling Necropolis over one of your basic lands or another etb tapped land.
Anyway just some thoughts!! Cheers and have fun!!

Thanks KingKilvas, glad you like it. Yeah there are definitely some cards in here that are way too costly, like Angus and Wheel of Fortune.
Cho-Manno, Revolutionary or Commander Eesha could work as The Hermit in place of Angus. The new art for Windfall works nicely as a Three of Coins in place of Wheel of Fortune, and represents the Three of Coins just as well meaning-wise.
The landbase could definitely be made more budget friendly by replacing the shocks, fetches, and other fancy lands (like wow Mana Confluence is way too pricey now) with more tri-lands (e.g. Crumbling Necropolis ) and things like Terramorphic Expanse and Bant Panorama .
All that said, I doubt many people would take offense at the use of proxies for a deck like this. I'm even thinking of making a digital proxy for each card in the style of tarot cards.

Hey, good start on a budget. Malcolm is spelled wrong that's why it's showing in the category Unknown.
More low CMC flying/unblockable Pirates can help to do combat damage to an opponent to trigger Brass:
Merchant Raiders and Coercive Recruiter have good repeatable effects with Pirates. These effects can help to clear the way of blockers for Pirates to do combat damage to opponents. The creatures you gain control of with Recruiter get the bonus of becoming a Pirate until end of the turn which helps to trigger Brass. Both these Pirates are excellent with Fathom Fleet Captain who can be a repeatable source of Pirate tokens.
Shared Animosity can be a powerful repeatable effect for your attacking Pirates. March of the Drowned and Fiery Cannonade are helpful Pirate tribal spells. Chaos Warp, Negate, Feed the Swarm are helpful overall support spells.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Walk the Plank
- Briber's Purse
- Soul Manipulation
- Song-Mad Treachery
- Kari Zev's Expertise
- Extract from Darkness
- Angrath, Captain of Chaos
- Pillar of Origins
- Deadeye Plunderers
- Adaptive Automaton
- Door of Destinies
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Exotic Orchard > Crypt of the Eternals
- Unclaimed Territory > Unknown Shores
- Crumbling Necropolis > Highland Lake
- Grixis Panorama > Jwar Isle Refuge
- Shivan Reef > Swiftwater Cliffs
- Smoldering Marsh > Akoum Refuge
- Sulfur Falls or Dragonskull Summit > Dismal Backwater
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good budget start and nice Scroll Rack :)
Spectral Sailor, Siren Stormtamer, Changeling Outcast, Warkite Marauder, Kitesail Freebooter are all low CMC budget Pirates who have evasion (flying or unblockable). More low CMC Pirates with evasion especially flying makes doing combat damage with three Pirates to a player easier for Brass as well as making more treasures with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator. Sailor is also a mana sink to draw cards.
- Spectral Sailor > Dire Fleet Interloper
- Siren Stormtamer > Prosperous Pirates
- Changeling Outcast > Brazen Freebooter
- Warkite Maurader > Dire Fleet Neckbreaker
- Kitesail Freebooter > Goblin Trailblazer
Coercive Recruiter and Fathom Fleet Captain have powerful budget repeatable effects with Pirates. Recruiter can help to clear blockers out of way to do combat damage with three Pirates for Brass. Captain can be a repeatable source of Pirate tokens which triggers Recruiter and Merchant Raiders.
- Coercive Recruiter > Headstrong Brute
- Fathom Fleet Captain > Dire Fleet Captain
Malcolm + Lightning-Rig Crew can make a lot of treasures since Malcolm triggers whenever a Pirate does damage to an opponent and Rig does 1 damage to each opponent which creates an amount of treasures equal to the number of opponents you have. You can chain making treasures with Rig by casting Pirates.
Lightning-Rig Crew > Dire Fleet Hoarder
- Chaos Warp > Walk to the Plank
- Reality Shift > Mutiny
- Terminate > Renegade Tactics
Navigator's Compass and Prophetic Prism are not mana rocks; they could be replaced with actual mana rocks to ramp such as Izzet Signet and Dimir Signet. Crumbling Necropolis, Exotic Orchard, Rogue's Passage, Sunken Hollow, Shivan Reef, Grixis Panorama, Ash Barrens are some budget land upgrades to consider.
These 20 card suggestions could be added for about $15. Good luck with your deck.

Hey Coercive Recruiter, Amphin Mutineer, Breeches, Brazen Plunderer, Crumbling Necropolis, Command Tower, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Port Razer, Forerunner of the Coalition, Captain Lannery Storm, Storm Fleet Sprinter, Corsair Captain, Spectral Sailor, Angrath's Marauders, Dreamcaller Siren, Lightning-Rig Crew, and Archetype of Imagination are all cards that are good for a tribal Pirate deck.
I'm always one for pirate tribal (despite me never managing to piece together me own pirate deck), so this is a +1 from me!
