Hey, nice version, but where's Glint-Horn Buccaneer? I saw your deck in the featured decks ad.
You can improve on balancing card quality since you have some amazing cards here, but also quite a few lackluster ones that are much lower on power level compared to the others. An example is Scalding Tarn which is excellent, but not playing a dual land that Tarn can search for... Steam Vents could replace Izzet Guildgate and Volatile Fjord could replace Highland Lake. Other Izzet dual lands to add in place of some basic lands to improve color fixing from lands: Training Center, Cascade Bluffs, Sulfur Falls, Stormcarved Coast and Frostboil Snarl.
I don't think I've even seen Armillary Sphere in the same deck before that also has Mana Drain, Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Jeweled Lotus, Dockside Extortionist, Goldspan Dragon, Jeska's Will and Urza's Saga. Sphere is really out of place power wise. Consider cutting Sphere for Arcane Signet? The Diamonds are also subpar, considering cutting both of them for Talisman of Creativity and Izzet Signet? These are not expensive changes, but can make a big improvements on ramp.
Another example of card quality balance are the counterspells. Mana Drain, Counterspell, Pact of Negation, Negate are great thus you don't also need to play Hornswoggle, Admiral's Order and even Lookout's Dispersal because these are not as good.
Some more one drop/two drop flying Pirates and unblockable Pirates can more easily trigger Malcolm and Breeches. Spectral Sailor, Warkite Marauder, Departed Deckhand could replace some higher mana cost Pirates such as Captain Ripley Vance, Deadeye Quartermaster, Prosperous Pirates and Sailor of Means. You have Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Dockside Extortionist, Goldspan Dragon and Corsair Captain which are all excellent thus you don't really need to play other Pirates that create treasures when they ETB because those cards are not as good.
Wonder and Anger are powerful with Pirates, but they need help to get them into your graveyard because you don't want to ever cast them. Expanding with more loot can help to draw/discard them that also adds more draw to your deck. Faithless Looting, Windfall, Mask of Memory and Frantic Search could replace Mutiny, Hornswoggle, Dowsing Dagger Flip and Admiral's Order. These changes are also not expensive and improve card quality.
Good luck with your deck.

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

You might like Scrapyard Recombiner since it can find Stuffy Doll.
These might interest you too: Primal Forcemage , Peregrine Drake , Deadeye Navigator , Shared Summons , Uncage the Menagerie , Kozilek's Predator , Prosperous Pirates , Master Biomancer , Conjurer's Closet , Thassa, Deep-Dwelling , Primeval Protector , Esika's Chariot , Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Oakhame Adversary , Phyrexian Dreadnought
king-saproling on 5 colored brudiclad? How can dis be.

You might like these: Twinflame, Heat Shimmer, Dance of Many, Tempt with Reflections, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Mirrorwing Dragon, Archaeomancer, Charmbreaker Devils, Dockside Extortionist, Wily Goblin, Corsair Captain, Prosperous Pirates, Rapacious Dragon, Brass's Bounty, Mimic Vat, Docent of Perfection Flip
Also just a heads up that Mythos of Illuna technically has a red-blue-green color identity.

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

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.
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
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 ;)
