It seems that you maybe a new player or new to standard but your deck has too many singletons.You want that your deck is as consistent as possible and by first you can choose what you want your deck to do.

Example your deck is BR (rakdos) so it is usually really aggressive so you are seeking cards that cost max 4 mana (With few exceptions).

You should take out Wily Goblin Deadeye Tracker <- (To side) Pitiless Plunderer Lightning-Rig Crew <- (maybe for side) Angrath's Marauders Angrath's Fury Blazing Volley Brass's Bounty Hijack Morbid Curiosity Vraska's Scorn Wrangle Dual Shot Skulduggery Vona's Hunger Treasure Map  Flip Vanquisher's Banner Revel in Riches and Blood Sun and Walk the Plank . You should switch Angrath, Minotaur Pirate and Vraska, Scheming Gorgon for Chandra, Torch of Defiance if you are made out of money and if not then Angrath, the Flame-Chained will just done fine

For good 1 drop you should add 4x Fanatical Firebrand because he is useful even when games get long because sometimes that 1 dmg that he can do directly to face mattes some time. 3 more Dire Fleet Captain because they are hard to kill when you got 2-3 pirates attacking with it. 1 Kari Zev, Skyship Raider because she is reliable 2 drop because she is hard to kill and brings buddy when attacking and 2 Captain Lannery Storm because she has haste and ramps little bit for you to make wider board or faster Angrath. 1 more Dire Fleet Neckbreaker should do fine because she doesn't have evasive abilites but buffs pirates so much that they become even more menacing. (Hazoret would be amazing in aggro deck but she isn't pirate so you don't have to include her if you don't want / can't]

For other spells 1 more Lightning Strike 2 Vraska's Contempt 2 Kari Zev's Expertise 1 Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip and 3 Shock (or 1 Magma Spray and 2 Shock ) and if you are able to get then 4 Fatal Push and try to put them in as you like

And add 1 more land and if you can you should get 4 Canyon Slough because they make decks more consistent thanks to that cycling

For side take out Blight Keeper Brass's Bounty Costly Plunder Dire Fleet Captain Dire Fleet Neckbreaker Revel in Riches Skittering Heartstopper Storm Fleet Arsonist Sure Strike Wily Goblin because simply they don't do much in most sitsuations

You should add 2 Abrade 1-2 Magma Spray (depending on how many sprays you have in mainboard) 2 Deadeye Tracker 2 Lightning-Rig Crew 3 Blazing Volley or Dual Shot and 2-3 Duress

These are just my thoughts and you don't need to change anything because I say so but these are what I recommend for your deck. If you want / need I can explain why I would take those cards out that I mention and what I would put in

Fun deck! You seem really aggressive, so I would take out expensive cards like Gravedigger, Liliana's Mastery, and Liliana, Death's Majesty in favor of some cheaper threats like additional Cursed Minotaur and Desiccated Naga. It will probably help you run smoother, as you'll more often be able to curve out properly. Also, if your curve becomes that low, you can probably cut the 23rd Swamp for an extra Skulduggery as well. Good luck!

Cut Skulduggery completely, cut Anointed Procession down to 2 maybe 3 for Seal_Of_Approval's suggestion. If you add a few more creatures, Oketra's Monument could get out of hand quickly. Good luck!

Blossoming Defense is definitely a card worth adding to the deck. I had completely forgotten about it. I can totally make the switch for Skulduggery. I'm also considering removing Lurking Chupacabra in favour of Seekers' Squire, for more exploring

No Walking Ballista? Also, wouldn't Blossoming Defense basically do the same thing as Skulduggery but give hexproof? I like this deck though, i've been trying to formulate the same kind of deck.

It's just an average pirate joe casting Skulduggery or making some Makeshift Munitions

It's just an average merfolk joe casting the River Heralds' Boon.

Also, remember that the ability text is that creature casting spells. For example, Tishana's Wayfinder using her average joe magic to explore, while Atzocan Archer is casting a Pit Fight/Prey Upon/etc.
