I posted some thoughts below. I don't know what your budget is, but i've suggested cards assuming you're after stuff on-par price-wise to what's currently in the deck. If you're looking for some more expensive goodies, let me know.

  • Blade Historian just doesn't seem playable... it requires 4 red, but your deck has only 11 ways to generate that color (or, only 9 if you're not naming Human or Cleric with Unclaimed Territory ). I don't see how you're ever casting it in a game - so i'd suggest ditching it.

  • Buccaneer's Bravado feels cute, but with the power of your creatures, is likely just going to be a complicated Lightning Bolt in 90% of situations. I'm not sure its worth playing

  • It looks like you're plan is to be aggressive and be swinging in with a lot of creatures quickly(ish). In that regard, i'm not sure Frantic Inventory helps you here. Playing it means you're not playing a threat to help you win... its not a particularly helpful card for a deck aiming to apply pressure.

  • You have very few cards at 1cmc - which is going to make it hard to apply early pressure. I'd suggest something like Daring Buccaneer , Siren Stormtamer , Spectral Sailor or Fanatical Firebrand . Other low-cost creatures worth considering are Dire Fleet Captain , Dire Fleet Daredevil , Dire Fleet Poisoner , and Rigging Runner . Generally, if you're wanting to be a fast deck, you want to be as close to the ground as possible. Dire Fleet Captain feels particularly good for ensuring you can hit hard when your board's getting wide.

  • I'd suggest finding a lower-cmc killspell than Hero's Downfall . Replacing it with more Heartless Act should be fine - though I'd personally think something like Bone Shards would work best (you can discard excess lands or bad draws to pay its additional cost).

  • With the above suggested changes, you should be able to go down to around 20 lands. That will help you truly shine as an aggressive deck.

I sadly think this deck suffers from wanting too much high mana creatures. I'd try striving for some 1 to 3 mana value creatures that you wouldn't mind playing out more of. It would improve gameplay alot. Question is ofcourse, what of 4+ mana value to cut.. Let's see... Heck, if you have money a Dockside Extortionist would do great in this deck. Stuff like Dire Fleet Daredevil gives some added utility. Mogg War Marshal isn't too bad since you always keep blockers, especially if you have something like Goblin Bombardment to sac tokens. Storm Entity could be fun etc.

bosny i've sorted it into general categories for ya. the main cog is curio for triggering and re-triggering EtBs (we're deliberately avoiding a storm win con) and another nice one is nexus for upgrading all your tribal EtB tutors (as well as treasure output, obviously)

Ruby Medallion and The Immortal Sun reduce the cost of your silly storm of creatures, Mana Echoes and Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip can help you string your 2+ CMC creature spells along, and the Harnfel, Horn of Bounty side of Birgi is a nice bonus, especially if you've got access to Paradise Mantle and Cinder Pyromancer or Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip for {R} so don't be afraid to pick her up and redeploy once you're rolling, bouncing, rather

obviously there's that guy or Purphoros, God of the Forge / Kyren Negotiations for win cons... but wouldn't you rather mill your pod out with Hair-Strung Koto while playing every single instant and sorcery from their decks with Dire Fleet Daredevil ?

dare to dream, my little devil friend :)

Between those two underperforming pirates, keep Dire Fleet Daredevil. Kari Zev's token isn't doing much for the deck, and the daredevil is probably one of my auto includes when I get around to making a pirate deck.

If you are looking to hit harder, Captain Vargus Wrath is a solid choice. He might even work as a finisher if you have Port Razer out.

Ha, I like the consistency to theme with your sideboard. I think Deadeye Tracker, Kitesail Freebooter, and Dire Fleet Daredevil would be very good additions to it that still go with the pirate motif, though. I'd also personally replace the Dire Fleet Neckbreakers with Ruin Raider or more Fell Flagships to make your deck even more grindy and durable to control!
