Hey, good start, nice Dockside Extortionist and Vampiric Tutor :)

Consider more one/two drop Pirates especially ones with flying? More overall one/two drop Pirates helps to assemble a battlefield of Pirates to attack the turn you play Brass.

Forerunner of the Coalition is a Pirate tutor and it can also be a repeatable source opponents' lose life when a Pirate ETB. Ruin Raider can be repeatable draw at your end step with attacking Pirates. Anger and Wonder are good with Pirates especially Wonder giving them flying evasion. Giving all your Pirates including Brass flying can be a win condition with attacking Pirates. Brass is much better when she has haste letting her attack the turn you cast her. Pirates who can attack the turn you play them can help to trigger Brass's gain control ability quicker.

Buried Alive can tutor for both Anger/Wonder as well as one other creature and put them all into your graveyard. Can also use Buried with Phyrexian Reclamation and/or March of the Drowned as a way to tutor for Pirates put them into your graveyard and then recur them to your hand. Reclamation can be helpful repeatable recursion for Pirates since Pirates are going to die over the course of a game.

Marchesa, the Black Rose is not a Pirate, but she can be a repeatable source of reanimating Pirates. Dethrone is an attacking ability where as if a Pirate attacks your opponent with the most amount of life then that Pirate gets a +1/+1 counter. With Marchesa if that Pirate dies then it will come back to the battlefield at your end step. Metallic Mimic is a Pirate when it ETB who interacts well with Marchesa since Mimic can put a +1/+1 counter on another Pirate when it ETB.


Adding some more ramp can help game play:

Some budget lands (each $5 or less) to consider adding:

These are budget land options, but of course there's many other better options for lands that are more expensive.

Good luck with your deck.

I like the unique take of using changeling to get reductions from the eminence keyword and then trying to get some fun payoffs from lords. That said with 16 changelings, including Amoeboid Changeling and Mirror Entity and 28 pay off cards. I feel like you are forcing a lot of "lords" into a deck where it doesn't really matter.

Some of the lords I would remove because there aren't worth the slot for the small effect on a few changelings. Cloudshredder Sliver, Drogskol Captain, Lord of the Unreal, and Lovisa Coldeyes. Most of your changelings are small and giving them a small bump is P/T and haste or hexproof isn't worth forcing these cards into the deck.

Sliver Overlord, Realm-Cloaked Giant, and Thundercloud Shaman are on my maybe list because they are a bit more situational. Are you going to spend 3 mana to search for a changeling to get an effect? Do you want to wrath away your dragons and leave a team of small giants? Not sure how often these show up.

Changeling to think about including are Taurean Mauler and Chameleon Colossus, you have enough ETB trigger that Birthing Boughs might even be good.

Other payoff cards to think about Oona's Blackguard, Rage Forger, Shared Animosity, The Circle of Loyalty, Distant Melody, Forerunner of the Coalition, Riptide Director , and Necromancer's Covenant

This might seem an odd suggestion, but you might consider Deadeye Navigator, and here's why.

You'll need 3 creatures: Forerunner of the Coalition, Timestream Navigator, and Deadeye Navigator. Activate Timestream and tuck it to the bottom, which will give you an extra turn. Then activate Deadeye soulbound to Forerunner, and blink Forerunner. When it enters the battlefield, search for your Timestream you just tucked, and put it on top. Then swing out with whatever you've got. Now on your next turn, you can cast Timestream, make sure it has haste by way of Lightning Greaves or some other on-board haste enabler, and repeat the play. Congratulations, you now have infinite turns.

I think it would be funny to have one combodeck. Bontu's Monument / Vindictive Vampire , Reassembling Skeleton / Oathsworn Vampire , Pitiless Plunderer and Ravenous Harpy . The monument is from an older set, but i think it would be okay. A free sac-outlet was in Kaladesh, but i think the Harpy is fine. A tutor like Forerunner of the Coalition for more consistancy.

This deck seems ok but I'm trying to decide if I want to go wide, be grindy, or just be really fast. I'm leaning towards going grindy with Forerunner of the Coalition . Any suggestions? Here's the deck: Rakdos Pirates
