March of the Drowned Discussion

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.

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.
- Siren Stormtamer
- Spectral Sailor
- Warkite Marauder
- Kitesail Freebooter
- Dire Fleet Daredevil
- Dire Fleet Poisoner
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:
- Exotic Orchard
- Unclaimed Territory
- Crumbling Necropolis
- Shivan Reef
- Underground River
- Sunken Hollow
- Smoldering Marsh
- Sulfur Falls
- Dragonskull Summit
- Grixis Panorama
- Ash Barrens
- Evolving Wilds
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Izzet Boilerworks
- Rakdos Carnarium
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.

So I’ve been checking out more lists like this and I think a good sideboard could look something like this: 2x Fry 1x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet 3x Leyline of the Void 3x Pithing Needle 1x Golden Demise 1x To the Slaughter 3x Kolaghan's Command 1x March of the Drowned I also like how you had Collective Brutality but I just couldn’t find a place for it. I dunno- it might be really good, but either way it’s out of my budget range lol.

If you're going for tribal/themed, you can still run Darkslick Shores, Sunken Hollow, or Sunken Ruins for dual lands. Timestream Navigator or March of the Drowned could definitely find a fit in your deck, too.

I'll have to mess around with Captain Lannery Storm idea, my worry would be that they don't synergize well with Fell Flagship and could slow us down given the mana cost. Walk the Plank is a good suggestion, would probably make a good inclusion in at least the sideboard. I've actually tried March of the Drowned in here before, but found it didn't help us to actually win games - this deck is too fast for it to be useful against decks without a lot of removal, and against decks that are packing significant removal, I've found the four copies of Kitesail Freebooter to be much more effective as it leaves us with an extra pirate to boot, no pun intended. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to definitely look into them!

Replace Dire Fleet Captain with Captain Lannery Storm for better synergy with Buccaneer's Bravado. May also consider Walk the Plank for removal. March of the Drowned needs to be here too to get your Pirates back when they get killed. Take a look at my deck RB Aggro Pirates Win to see how I built this deck, and its under $50!
