i would take out Contract Killing and replace it with alot of cheaper two mana kill spells like Doom Blade or Heartless Act or Go for the Throat . for it's cost Prying Blade is just not that good. id also go up to at least 36 lands, 35 is way too low. Boarding Party , Brazen Freebooter , and Prosperous Pirates also seem pretty weak in the deck. But the deck has decent draw and removal/interaction, and alot of spells make treasures as a byproduct for flavorful ramp too which is great

Rishadan Cutpurse , Rishadan Footpad , and Rishadan Brigand might also be cool inclusions but they aren't from ixalan so i dont know if you want them for flavor reasons

Sure thing SueMe!

It turns out Perplexing Chimera doesn't work the way I thought. It has to be on the field for the exchange effect to resolve. My bad!

Sigil Tracer has some infinite combo potential particularly with Archaeomancer and things like Dramatic Reversal and Ghostly Flicker. Tracer can do some neat things with Narset's Reversal and Snap too.

Also I just realized, you might want to slot Salvager of Secrets in place of Mnemonic Wall since salvager is a wizard.

Prosperous Pirates is another one that just came to mind and could play a similar role to Peregrine Drake

General
-------------------------------
I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.

36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.

add
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources

remove
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.

If you wanna go revel in riches
-------------------------------
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey  Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault  Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it

If you wanna go infect
-------------------------------
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate

Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build

Nice deck! Strongly suggest Kaya's Ghostform. Not only is it great in general for sac decks, it works masterfully with Dockside Extortionist and has good synergy with Prosperous Pirates, Sailor of Means, and Wily Goblin. Not bad for a one-drop enchantment ;)

FlavioFaive on Rich Pirates Don't Need to Raid

Bitterbub Actually it isn't slow at all due to the lands I chose. Surprisingly I have more problems agaist midrange and control due to the lack of removals. Usually after one or two Fiery Cannonade well timed, the aggro opponent concedes.
I always have a pile of treasure tokens aside so usually I can use Vona's Hunger on turn 4 or 5 with full potencial. But yes, this card is better against an army of big creatures or early against only 1 big creature.
Actually my deck has many Shock . I use Makeshift Munitions instead of Shock and Lightning Strike against small creatures, and I combine Makeshift Munitions with Fathom Fleet Cutthroat , Angrath, the Flame-Chained or Captivating Crew against big creatures.
The inicial idea was build a deck only with Ixalan and Rivals of Ixalan cards. But I accept card suggestions from any set. Which removal card would you recomend? I thought maybe exchange Prosperous Pirates for Admiral Beckett Brass ... But hardly never I could cause combat damage with 3 pirates... Though this card would help to crew Conqueror's Galleon  Flip earlier. Or I could exchange one Vona's Hunger for another Angrath, the Flame-Chained .
Yes. Unknown Shores is a shitty mana-fixer but is faaaast! Fast like a basic land. All my lands enter the battlefield untapped. My deck is mostly creatures and artifacts so with Unclaimed Territory I have no problems casting most of my cards. For the noncreature spells I use the treasure tokens to cast the cheaper ones. I always have a pile of treasure tokens.

SleeplessPr1nce on First Attempt at Commander

You're on the right track for sure, you just need to focus in on what you want to do and cut the stuff you don't need. First, I would cut all the pirate cards; treasure tokens are great but cards like Prosperous Pirates are slow and inefficient, even for edh. Ruthless Knave is fine, but the rest are dead weight. You also don't need them for Revel in Riches to work; Torment of Hailfire can yield the same results under the right circumstances. I would also cut Archaeomancer , Saheeli's Artistry , Kaya's Ghostform , Grave Betrayal , Awaken the Erstwhile and Vraska, Relic Seeker ; you just don't need them.

Sultai is all about value, and Muldrotha is really just a big fat value engine, so the question to ask yourself is: "what can I get the most value out of for the least amount of effort?" Cards like Baleful Strix , Sidisi, Undead Vizier , and Acidic Slime can work wonders in Muldrotha. You can also run Siren Stormtamer and Glen Elendra Archmage to lock down your board state.

I would switch out Glaring Spotlight for Arcane Lighthouse if possible. Satyr Wayfinder instead of Elvish Rejuvenator , you want stuff in your yard, not at the bottom of your deck. If you can afford them, Waterlogged Grove and Nurturing Peatland would yield some good value. And finally, I don't know how strict your play group is about color symbols, but technically you can't play Kaya, Bane of the Dead in here. Edh follows a strict adherence to color identity, and Kaya having white mana symbols in her cost technically means you can't play her with a BUG commander. If you really want to play her, I would clear it with your play group first, although I think you'd be better off running Kiora, Master of the Depths instead.

Hope this helps.
